Who was Cllr Munday?
Cllr Munday may well have been ready to leave before he ever stood as a UKIP candidate.
While it is not clear who said what exactly it is clear that there were rumours of Munday's exit before we even went to the polls.
I was told by another Ukip candidate that Vince Munday was no longer candidate. We took this in good faith but apologise if it is incorrect.— Will Scobie (@willscobie) May 7, 2015
Of course there were the usual denials and Munday was appionted chairman of Governance and Audit. A role that comes with additional money and, usually, a commitment to being invested in Thanet.
