It appears that Crawley is now a UKIP-free zone, as our only UKIP councillor resigned on Friday.
To be honest, it doesn’t sound like it will make a big difference as he was rarely spotted in the town hall. I suppose he should be congratulated on doing the right thing, eventually. Having spent several years doing nothing he could easily have continued to get paid for doing nothing until next May. A pity he did not take the opportunity to stand down a few months earlier then we could have elected a replacement during the regular elections.
Had to laugh a bit at his quote:
Southgate deserves a councillor who can commit a large percentage of their time to the town, and I am no longer in a position to do that.
