Another Labour Councillor defects to UKIP

Another Labour councillor has defected to UKIP, making it two in a little over a month.

Cllr Beverley-Anne Mennell has had enough of the party whip, male domination and lack of transparency in Northampton Labour Party.

In May, North East Lincolshire's Cllr Jayne Bramley became the first Labour councillor to defect to UKIP citing the party whip as her main reason for leaving the Labour Party.

Cllr Mennell is the first UKIP councillor on Northampton Council.
