Derek Elliott of UKIP and Cornwall Councillor (Letters 7 Nov ) is perfectly entitled to point out that he did not support his leader and the other members of his group. They voted in favour of Cllr Egerton's motion to consider a 6 per cent rise in council tax but he did not. One UKIP member was absent.
Now he says he leaves his UKIP badge at home. Perhaps it would have been fairer to the voters of Four Lanes if he had stood as an independent candidate.
On the other hand, as I understand UKIP portrays itself as a low tax party, he may feel entitled to ask his colleagues to give up their UKIP badges.
I think he is unfair in describing Conservatives as 'sheep' because they all voted against 6 per cent. They voted as they saw fit.
