Meet Glynn Davies-Dear, the weirdy-beardy former LibDem mayor of Eastleigh who has jumped ship to UKIP ahead of next-week’s by-election.
“Why did I leave the LibDems? I left in disgust at the lies and the broken promises. The Liberal Democrats no longer care about the people, they only care about themselves.”
Former LibDem councillor Andy Moore has also crossed the divide this afternoon. Ouch.
UPDATE: Amusingly he appears on a leaflet for Maria Hutchings.
