This young family are the exact type of aspirational, hard working people that any political party would love to have - but now their natural home is with UKIP.
The budget was the 'last nail in the coffin' for their defection, the pair said. Cllr Tom Bursnall and former Mayor of Windsor & Maidenhead Cllr Catherine Bursnall like many on the Right, want a low tax nation. Unlike many, they have had the courage of their convictions to join the only Party that really is arguing, unequivocally, for lower government spending and low, flat taxes. These are serious people - Catherine Bursnall was covered by the national media for becoming England's youngest Mayor.
This budget truly was one worthy of defections as Osborne and Cameron seek to dance around, pleasing both the Left and the Right with small cuts here and raises there. We are entering into a new era of politics in the UK where plurality will flourish and where the choice is there for all. If you like big government, vote Labour. If you like similar sized government, vote Tory. If you want flat taxes and things like Air Passenger Duty to be abolished and not raised, then you're natural home is surely now UKIP.
