UKIP’s not whipped



MARTIN Lightfoot: Not getting the pathways fixed has nothing to do with whether Coun Harrison is doing a good job.

It is to do with the fact there are two UKIP councillors and Labour has 20 times that number, so if they want to punish wards who didn’t vote Labour they can quite easily deny them resources.

UKIP isn’t anti-services, it wants the money to actually be spent on the services the public want, and for it to be clear and transparent where and on what the money is being spent.

Lastly, not having a whip means you can vote in the best interests of the people who elected you, not as you’re instructed to do for the interests of your party.

I know which sounds fairer to the electorate to me.

Paul McKean,
