Reader letter: UKIP gain is our loss

UKIP (United Kingdom Independence Party) did very well at the recent council elections including Cambridgeshire there is no doubt about that.

Don’t get carried away though they may have won seats but they haven’t gained control of a single council. I can’t see any of the other parties forming a coalition with them where there is no overall control.

To be honest their gain is our loss, I can see infighting in the council chambers which is of no benefit at all to us. I must admit as a life-long Labour supporter with a dislike for the Tory Party I was pleased to see the Tories lose control of Cambridgeshire, regrettably because of UKIP. We will have to wait and see what the outcome will be at Shire Hall.
