Well, well, well!
William McDougall – ex-Tory councillor on Haringey and their Tottenham candidate in the 2005 general election – has surfaced as a fully-fledged UKIP member. This is his endorsement for the candidate for Sedgefield by-election:
“I was the Tory Candidate for Tottenham in the last general election, and previously was both a Conservative on Haringey Council and Chairman of my local Conservative Association. Like Toby I have become fed up with the direction the Party has taken, and have now joined UKIP.
“If I wanted to support a social or liberal democratic group there are already two well established parties. If I wanted to support environmental extremists there is a third. But why support Cameron? He is losing the Tory base without convincing anyone else. His Ealing candidate even donates money to the Labour Party.”
