I was surprised to see Kevin Holland considered me a turncoat (Letters, January 13).
I was a Labour Party member as by tradition I considered that they were the party that best reflected my views.
That was until I started to ask questions about the policy and ideals of the party.
That was when I decided to resign and I had been a UKIP member for some months before seeking election under the UKIP banner. I find Mr Holland’s letter hypocritical as he was a member of the Labour Party which has changed from Red to Green.
