Dudley UKIP announced in their local newspaper that a former Labour Party branch chairman has defected to the Euro sceptic party.
Steve Daniels has been selected to stand for UKIP in the coming local elections in the Netherton ward where he hopes to win a seat on Dudley Council.
Daniels said: “I have decided to accept the invitation to join UKIP because their values match mine”.
We wonder which values Daniels refers to as we can reveal the new UKIP recruit appeared on the leaked BNP membership list.
The local Labour Party in the area discovered his far right links and launched an investigation but Daniels left the party before the investigation had concluded.
Daniels in his defence claims that the Steve Daniels that appears on the leaked list is not him and is in fact his son who was living with him at the time.
UKIP Halesowen and Dudley chairman Dean Perks said: “It is a pleasure to welcome Steve to UKIP. ”
