Councillor announces defection to UKIP at Conservatives' Spring Conference

East Lindsey District Councillor, Victoria Ayling, has defected with style from the Tories to UKIP.

Cllr Ayling attended the Conservative Party's spring conference so she could personally tell David Cameron that she was defecting!

Cllr Ayling was close to winning the Great Grimsby seat in the last general election and currently holds the Corporate Affairs portfolio on the district council.

Lindsey is the site of the Total oil refinery that saw protests in 2009 over the decision by Total to award a contract for new equipment to an Italian company that imported 300 Italian workers to do the work rather than employing locals.

Update:
Cllr Ayling reports that David Cameron "lost his temper" when she told him she was defecting and twisted her hand.  More on the leader of the nasty party and his temper tantrum at the Daily Mail.
