Labour donor defects to UKIP

One of Labour's major donors and advisers has defected to UKIP and encouraged Labour members to vote UKIP.

Ian Wallace has resigned as a member of Labour's Finance & Industry Group (LFIG) and joined UKIP. He was, until very recently, a paid up member of the Labour Party and a member of the Thousand Club which is for members who donate between £1,200 and £5,000 per year. He said that he has become "increasingly disillusioned with the direction the Labour Party has taken".
