John Humberstone the ex-independent councillor for the Smithfield ward in Wrecsam has been selected to stand for the United Kingdom Independance Party for Wrecsam at the next Westminster election. John has done the rounds of the political parties -SDP, Plaid Cymru, Forward Wales, Libertas and now UKIP. Now UKIP seems a strange choice of party for an internationalist like John Humberstone who has his fingers in many pies when it comes to 'providing services' to the Polish community in Wrecsam i.e housing and jobs.
For someone who benefits to such an extent from migration it seems to be crass hypocrisy and acting against one's economic interests to support an anti-immigration party such as UKIP. We can but wonder if John Humberstone's decision has caused a rift between him and his mentor that other great internationalist our ex AM and MP, John Marek!
