Former Hull City councillor Steve Walker has quit Labour for UKIP
The Hull Daily Mail reports here,
He marked his switch by symbolically tearing up his Labour membership card on the steps of the Guildhall in Hull.
Mr Walker said: “I have resigned from Labour because I wanted to be part of a real people’s party working for the benefit of the people of Hull.
What UKIP are going to do to Labour next May across the country, it’ll be carnage. Labour can’t accept it and can’t see why it could happen. Being so out of touch and sneering towards their core vote, Labour just don’t get it.
