Is Chris Wells the new King of Thanet? Who are the new UKIP Councillors?
Does anyone know if Chris Wells has been crowned on the QT as leader of Thanet UKIP or leader of TDC?
I keep reading Tweets saying he is leader
And Newspaper articles saying that he is http://www.kentonline.co.uk/thanet/news/council-will-try-to-buy-36686/
This is all a bit strange to me as wasn’t it only last August that Chris was a member of the Conservative TDC cabinet and saying that UKIP were a disorganised rabble. Actually I have probably misquoted him so I had better check, wasn’t it here https://www.facebook.com/InTouchWithThanet/photos/a.600157566675202.1073741828.599779690046323/846891095335180/
You see I was wrong it was actually
"Whoever stands here from UKIP risks letting labour in on a minority basis by splitting the right wing vote more than labour's
It does highlight some difficulties for UKIP regarding discipline and unity as a party. It was Rozanne Duncan who stood out against the party line on Manston as well. She appears somewhat disconnected.
From what I am hearing there is real indecision involved at all levels. Locally they are desperate to have the national name, and have claim on his loyalty because of their recent successes; however, it's a national election and his office have to take that into account as well, and also assess the other candidates in each seat."
Perhaps Chris is a Conservative mole.
Who are new councillors? Here is the link to the TDC website http://democracy.thanet.gov.uk/mgMemberIndex.aspx?FN=PARTY&VW=LIST&PIC=0 no pictures as yet so I copied them off the UKIP shop door, sorry about the quality of the photo.
Quite a few of the names are/were also SMA committee members so that may help u identify them.
