Rutland Anti-Corruption Group councillors join UKIP

Earlier this year I blogged about the ridiculous decision of Rutland County Council to investigate the possibility of suing three of its own members for defamation. No less an authority than Tom McNally told the council that this was a non-starter.

Today came news that those three councillors, the members of the Rutland Anti-Corruption Group, have decided to join UKIP.

I wish them well, and nothing could be more calculated to annoy Rutland's ruling Conservatives. But whether Nigel Farage, his party and his beery non sequiturs have anything to do with the openness these councillors say they stand for remains to be seen.

They complain the Tories are just wearing the Tory Badge. They then say they have signed up the UKIP Badge, i wonder if they have even read the UKIP Manifesto.
I notice the Rutland Times has published today the Councils legal experts are preparing an injunction. I wonder if they are going to be banned from Council premises?
