The headline ‘Defeat for UKIP’ is astonishing (Shoreham Herald, October 16).
Your headline should have read: “Congratulations UKIP for standing up for the people against selfish interests.”
How can any group of men, calling themselves Tories, hurriedly pass a housing development project through when they could have easily waited just six months for the results of a detailed flooding enquiry?
Perhaps I am wrong but I can only assume there must have been some hidden agenda.
Surely they could not have forgotten the terrible hardships caused by flooding only a few months ago.
I have voted Conservative all my life and will now certainly vote UKIP next time.
How can the Tories be so spineless and sheeplike and vote as they did?
I certainly would not trust them looking after my interests.
