TIM Aker has confirmed that despite becoming a member of the new breakaway party, the Thurrock Independents Party, he will continue to remain an Member of the European Party (MEP).
Aveley and Uplands councillor, Tim Aker, spoke to the Westmonster website.http://www.westmonster.com:
He said: “UKIP has a job to do in the European Parliament in seeing we get the Brexit we voted for. I will stay as a UKIP MEP. But to better represent my constituents in Aveley, I had no choice but to follow my colleagues and represent the Thurrock Independents.
“We are one seat away from taking control of the council and bringing real change to our borough.”
The news has led to a large number of questions that we hope to get answered (eventually). YT understands that a number of the former UKIP councillors work for Tim Aker. So, we wondered if the four or five (possibly) members of a party that has just broken away from UKIP, still work for UKIP?
