Now a prominent Liberal Democrat has declared for UKIP.
Garry Harrison of Chapman Way, East Malling, is a councillor on East Malling and Larkfield Parish Council.
He had been a member of the Liberal Democrats for 20 years and for two years served as the vice-chairman of the Medway branch of the party. He also twice stood as a Lib Dem candidate for the Medway Unitary Authority, standing unsuccessfully in their Gillingham North and River Wards.
He said: “I realise now that the sooner we get out of Europe the better - and UKIP is the only party who speaks for my views.”
Mr Harrison said he was fed up with “cheap jibes” that the party was anti-immigrant.
He said: “We will improve life for everyone in the UK - including our immigrants”.
Mr Harrison is divorced, but his former wife was an immigrant from Kosovo.
