Cllr Ben Walker defects to UKIP

Councillor Ben Walker has defected from the Conservatives to UKIP today, ahead of a UKIP public meeting in Bristol.

Walker is a councillor for Bradley Stoke in South Gloucestershire and a former mayor of Bradley Stoke.  He has defected because of bullying in the local Conservative Party and because of the Tories' "ill targeted" cuts and support of the EU.

A spokesman for Bristol & South Gloucestershire Conservatives said that Walker has let down the hundreds of people who voted for a Conservative last year.  I can't seem to find any condemnation of David Campbell Bannerman's defection the other way last year on their website or in a Google search so it must only let people down when it's Tories defecting to UKIP.  Which is unfortunate for Bristol & South Gloucestershire Conservatives because it's happening every other week at the moment!
