Former Tory councillor quits the party because he is ashamed of the government

A former Tory councillor who defected from Labour has left the Conservative party citing he is ashamed of the Government’s behaviour.

Francis Eniola of Mead Platt, Neasden, left his party colleagues seeing red by crossing the floor in October 2009.

The 70-year-old, who lost his Welsh Harp seat last year, claimed he had joined the Conservative Party because the borough’s Labour group were ignoring black and Asian members.

However, today (Friday) he announced he had left the Tories and hoped to rejoin the Labour Party because he was embarrassed over the actions of the coalition government.

He said: “I feel ashamed and disappointed by the government.

“They promised to look after old people and to ensure they would care for them in their homes and now they are doing the opposite.

“This government does not look after the most vulnerable people especially those who are poor.”
