There has been a certain amount of jubilation in UKIP after it was announced that two Welsh councillors had defected to UKIP.
Both were originally elected as Independents.
It is quite ironic that one of the two - Neil Greer - had previously attacked councillors who changed sides without submitting themselves to a by-election!
Clearly he has a short memory. Or is he just another hypocrite? I suspect the latter.
He should do very well in UKIP!
A local reporter was less than impressed with both his hypocrisy and his betrayal of all those who had voted for him as an Independent.
AND a big week for the UK Independence Party too, as two Merthyr Tydfil councillors joined the party, giving Ukip its first council seats in the Valleys.
Adam Brown and Neil “Jock” Greer were previously independents, but who can doubt they will provide a huge boost for a party whose representatives have often had a reputation for being fruit-loops with incoherent views?
Mr Brown has passionately campaigned for a ban on the sale of chewing gum in Merthyr town centre and lives outside the borough because his house in Merthyr reminds him of his dead grandmother. Mr Greer has previously stood for the complete-opposite-of-Ukip, Forward Wales and last year attacked those councillors who switched party allegiance without submitting themselves to a by-election (which he himself is now doing).
They should fit right in, eh?
