UKIP regain a member at Thanet District Council

Interesting news that Councillor Beverley Martin (Thanet District Council) has today rejoined UKIP from DIG (Democratic Independent Group), when the original defection to DIG was cited as being a loss of faith in Chris Wells and the handling of the Manston Airport issue.

“Cllr Martin’s move back to Ukip means the party now has 27 members at Thanet council, with 19 Conservative councillors; four Democratic Independent Group councillors; five Labour councillors and one Independent councillor.”
