This could be a bad day for UKIP. Here’s the ‘Echo’:

“THE Ukip group leader at Southend Council has been permanently expelled from the party.

“James Moyies, councillor for West Shoebury, was suspended from the party in January after he alongside Ukip members Tino Callaghan, Lawrence Davies, and Lee Burling voted unanimously to kick out Parliamentary candidate Floyd Waterworth from their group on Southend Council.

“Mr Moyies says he will remain as Ukip group leader at Southend Council and made a statement on Twitter following his expulsion from the party- a decision he says he knew nothing about.”

“Decision I need to make is to appeal or go public”? If he hasn’t realised Twitter is a public-facing site, perhaps it’s good for UKIP to have given him the boot!
