From Elsewhere: Barking and Dagenham Labour councillor wakes up to the damage rampant immigraton has done to his borough.

Those who say that UKIP are only taking disaffected Conservative voters are very much in the wrong.

In areas where people may, for historical reasons, be reluctant to vote Tory, and they don’t trust the Liberal Democrats (well, who does?), UKIP can be the recievier of votes from those disaffected by the current crop of Westminster politicians.

The London Borough of Barking and Dagenham is an area that has suffered immensely from unwanted levels of immmigration. As the area as become, in the estate agents parlance more ‘vibrant and diverse’, so have levels of crime risen and stresses on public services such as schools and the NHS have become woefully apparent.

The local newspaper for this borough, the Barking and Dagenham Post, is telling of a defection of a councillor from Labour to UKIP. Now apart from a short period earlier this century when 10 BNP councillors were elected and promptly demonstrated their stupidity and ignorance of council procedure, this borough has been solid Labour. However, in this Labour fiefdom one particular councillor has realised what many of us realised long ago, that is Labour are not the party for the British working classes, Labour are the enemy of the British working classes.

The Barking and Dagenham Post said:

“Concerns over his party’s immigration policies has led a long-standing Labour councillor to defect to UKIP.

Cllr Robert Douglas crossed the political middle ground and made the move to Nigel Farage’s centre-right UK Independence Party this week, having spent 12 years as a Labour party member.

The Becontree ward councillor of three years said he left because Labour no longer represented the interests of ordinary working people.

His departure comes after he failed a re-selection interview in June to stand for the party in next year’s local elections.

Cllr Douglas said: “I believe that the British people should have a referendum on our continued membership of the European Union and I also believe that we need strong controls on immigration.

“UKIP is the only party that I feel represents the views held by a majority of my constituents.”

The move was welcomed by UKIP, with Havering Cllr Lawrence Webb claiming it showed his party was the only one with policies that “resonated with ordinary people”.

Reading between the lines on this story it appears that Cllr Douglas may have got increasingly out of step with the immigration loving, Britain hating, Islam fellating party that Labour has sadly become.

Let’s hope that more long-standing Labour councillors in all areas realise that if they are in politics to help British workers put bread on the table, then the Labour Party is really not the way to do that. Labour as we have seen far too often, want to take that bread off of that table and stuff into the faces of newcomers who often do not contribute, or who bring social problems that impact on the working classes, then Labour is really not the way to do it.

    Shame a few conservative MPs haven’t got the guts to join UKIP. It must have crossed quite a few of their minds. Once one or two do many will follow.

    P.S funny how the truth suddenly revealed itself to him after he was de-selected. Strange coincidence.

      I thought that as well at first with my cynical hat on. However, I got the impression that this split may have been coming for a while because of the disconnect between the Labour party and working class voters and his voters may have encouraged him to support UKIP. This may well have been bubbling under for some time. Becontree like other areas of B and D has been seriously adversely affected by unwanted and unecassary immigration. Evidence of bearded savagery (mosques, halal shops and rapes) have become more visible thereby pissing off those who have lived in and contributed to the borough for many years.

    If Cllr Robert Douglas is so disgruntled why does he not resign now and force an immediate local election. This would then give his voters the opportunity to back or reject him and UKIP.

      That would settle the matter that’s for sure. However, I’m more than happy to see a former Labour politico wake up to the damage that Labour has done not only to the country but to the demographic that is the Party’s reason for existence.
