Somalia – born Liberal Democrat candidate made the rather surprising decision to join UKIP as he awaited to result of the election he was contesting, according to Local London. Sabriye Warsame decided to switch parties after his UKIP opponent in the election for a seat on the London Borough of Brent council made a joke about him not wanting to the a Liberal Democrat.

Warsame failed to win the seat of Colindale, scoring just 87 votes after having been a Liberal Democrat supporter for five years. His UKIP opponent, John Baskin, also lost but did pick up Warsame as a new member. Labour won with over 2000 votes for each of their candidates.

John Baskin told a reporter: “We were sitting waiting at the count and I was joking with him – I said to him, you don’t want to be a Liberal Democrat.”

“He said ‘okay then, where do I sign up?’ I was flabbergasted.”

Mr Warsame was officially welcomed into his new party last week and claims he contacted Brent Lib Dem leader Jack Cohen to explain his actions. But Cllr Cohen, who is leader by default as he is now the only Lib Dem on Brent Council, claims he has not received any correspondence about Warsame’s defection.

He said: “I’m surprised and disappointed he didn’t say anything to begin with. I don’t what the reasons are, or what the motives could possibly be.”

But Warsame was unapologetic about his defection and said he was “very excited” about joining UKIP. He said: “It’s not a racist party. I am a proud Muslim looking forward to joining UKIP. I know it’s a drastic decision, but I support them wholeheartedly.

British politics is changing.

    And with any luck the terrible Tories will disappear down the political plughole of history.

      I’d like to see all three main parties disappear – and if this paedos in parliament explodes it could triggh the chain reaction.

      brittan is under investigation at last, the Labour ex MP Greville Janner has been certified unfit to be questioned because he has dementia, Bottomley and Morrison are dead (so we can say what we like about them), a couple more Lib Dem peers are due to be named and I’m still researching my post on the paedo who wears hush puppies (or Clarke’s loafers maybe) and has been a very senior figure for years.
