Douglas Carswill to stand down and support Tories

Please treat other members in a constructive and friendly manner: Our Community Guidelines.
  • Former UKIP MP, Douglas Carswill has just announced he will not seek relection for his Clacton seat and will stand down and support the Tories.

    Does he fear Farage will knock him off his perch if Farage stands for the Clacton seat? Is he saving face and may perhaps be opening the door for a return as a conservative MP?

    If my post is in this colour, it is a moderator decision. Please abide by it.

  • Another self serving multiple turncoat.

    He's standing down because he wasn't going to get back in anyway.
