Conservative and Labour Councillors are switching to UKIP
Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead Cllr (and former mayor) Catherine Bursnall and
her husband Cllr Tom Bursnall have left the Conservative Party and joined UKIP.
Councillor Alan Graves who was sitting as an independent, and was formerly a Labour
councillor and Labour council cabinet member has joined UKIP and will be defending his
Alvaston seat this year as a UKIP candidate.
Oxfordshire councillor Christopher Quinton, a councillor for Woodcote on South Oxfordshire
District Council, has resigned from the Conservative Party in order to join UKIP.
Councillor John Short, who was sitting as an Independent on Swindon Borough Council, and
was formerly a Conservative Councillor has joined UKIP with immediate effect.
UKIP are a party that supports democracy and puts the UK first - that is why we get support
from former supporters of all parties. UKIP are not a fringe or extreme party, we are an
independent party of common sense, straight talking and democracy.
