Private Eye 1387 (6th-19th March) features a story of how Diana Coad, a Conservative councillor from Slough, has defected to UKIP.

Clearly willing to forgive and forget, Chris was gracious enough to welcome his new colleague via Twitter. Unfortunately it was the “old” Chris who tweeted, so the original message was lost along with his account. Fortunately, a quote remains:
