Kettering Tory cabinet member defects to UKIP

UKIP has claimed another scalp from the Tories, this time in the form of Councillor Jonathan Bullock, until today a member of Kettering Borough Council's ruling Tory cabinet.

Cllr Bullock wrote much of Kettering Conservatives' manifesto and says that he will remain committed to it as it is "entirely consistent with UKIP policies".  He has stood for the Tories at local, national and EU level and has campaigned with formerly Tory, now UKIP MEP Roger Helmer since 2004.

Conference-goers in Birmingham can meet Cllr Bullock this weekend.
