Luke Ellis, a Bridgend County Borough Councillor, defects from the Labour Party


Luke Ellis, a councillor for the Pyle ward of Bridgend Council has left the Labour to stand as an independent. He said that the NHS and the Child Sex Abuse inquiry were the main reasons but also likened Ed Miliband, the leader of the Labour Party, to a “hapless chuckle brother” and said that he would “lead the party to an inevitable defeat” at the General Election.
