Key UKIP fig­ure in the city is sus­pended

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - News -

The deputy chair­man of UKIP’s Pe­ter­bor­ough branch says he has been sus­pended for “speak­ing out against el­e­ments of racism, crony ism, cor­rup­tion and hypocrisy in our party .”

Jay Beecher also co­or­di­nated the Vote Leave cam­paign in the city dur­ing the re­cent EU ref­er­en­dum and was cam­paign man­ager for Ram­sey coun­cil­lor Lisa Duffy in the re­cent UKIP lead­er­ship elec­tion.

AU K IP spokesman said “tal­ented” Mr Beecher was sus­pended for “re­peat­edly mak­ing de­lib­er­ate and demon­stra­tively false al­le­ga­tions” against UKIP mem­bers.” He added: “It is a shame he uses his time to at­tack peo­ple in his party rather than to build up sup­port as we move for­ward to the Cam­bridgeshire County Coun­cil elections.”
