Mark Reckless quits Ukip to rejoin Conservatives

The former Rochester and Strood MP Mark Reckless is reported to be considering leaving Ukip.

In a letter to Mr Davies, the assembly presiding officer Elin Jones said, as Mr Reckless was no longer a member of Ukip, that he "can be treated as a member of your group for the purposes of our procedures within the Assembly". I campaigned all my adult life for us to leave the EU.

"I support Theresa May, and her team of Brexit ministers, to deliver".

Instead, Mr Reckless claimed that he joined the Conservative Group to secure "greater influence" for his Welsh Assembly Meeting constituents.

Paul Oakden insisted that the former Ukip politician needed to vacate his seat in the Welsh National Assembly.

The Boston Herald said the drivers were let go after Uber and Lyft received the results of the background checks this week. Be Civil - It's OK to have a difference in opinion but there's no need to be a jerk.

Oakden further said that because the Reckless won the assemble seat under the UKIP mantle he should not be allowed to retain the seat as it should go to another UKIP party candidate. "Now we are under a Conservative government", he wrote in a statement.

A Conservative spokesman said: "Decisions about who sits with the Conservative group in the Welsh Assembly are a matter for the group in the Welsh Assembly".

The defection means that the Welsh Conservatives are now the largest opposition party in the Senedd.

"He will now be able to continue this work as part of a strong and united team which will be the official opposition in the Assembly".

He has since been elected as a regional Assembly Member in South Wales East.

It comes after Mr Carswell quit the party to become an independent MP following a bitter and public two-year battle with Mr Farage.

The then-MP fought and won a by-election in his Rochester and Strood seat in November that year, but lost his seat at the May 2015 general election.

So as new of Reckless' defection emerged, Farage and his allies suggested that Carswell was to blame.

Reckless and Carswell were both seen as being on the liberal wing of Ukip, as opposed to the Nigel Farage wing.

There is no rule that would require Mr Reckless to give up his seat and give way to the next UKIP candidate on the regional list.

There really is no need; Johnson did not trail for so much as a single hole en route to the triumph in Austin, Texas. He birdied the final two holes on Sunday for a tie for 17. "I'm proud of the way I played, the way I hung in there".

"I am fascinated by Mr Mackinlay's view, bearing in mind he returned to the Conservative Party himself and appears to have pulled up the drawbridge behind him", he said.
