By not voting on committee chairperson allocations the UKIP councillors might be expressing some silent point of principle in not wanting to work with the established parties. They might argue the chairperson doesn't reflect how a committee votes so is an irrelevance. But they have inadvertently enabled the 'status quo' when they are supposed to reflect change. Committee chairperson has a strong influence over the direction of the committee and so, as several comments already indicate, the council is still firmly in the hands of the previous administration. I was neutral at the council election but was UKIP a wasted vote in local council terms?

Isn't it just? But a totally different kettle of fish with the UKIP councillors down the road in Basildon who won't have any truck whatsoever with toxic Labour.

This bunch are clearly inept. I just watched a video of last night's "action" and ex National Front UKIP Cllr Robert Ray and his inept missus were clearly trying to up their image by abstaining from the mayoral vote and in effect, electing a Labour mayor.

You could see the unease of the UKIP bunch quite clearly. Not at all like their colleagues in Basildon and elsewhere in Essex, they appear clueless and totally vacant.

They only got elected in the first place because, for some people, if you stuck a purple rosette on a pig, they'd vote for it. This is particularly true of the candidates in Thurrock.

The only decent one is Clive Broad, somebody who knows what he is talking about. Pity he hasn't got elected yet because he would kick some serious @rse. Instead the people of Thurrock elect this bunch of baboons.

Definitely NOT the best individuals to promote UKIP as they are so desperate to get past Ray's National Front image that they will roll over and play dead for Labour.

Pathetic.

Shame on you Thurrock and for those of you who voted in Timur Aker (another political baboon). This man is a backstabber who @rselicks the UKIP "management" and has his nose so far up Farage's rear end he can practically see out of his mouth.

In fact, I'd rather have voted in a Labour MEP than this no mark and believe me I detest Labour with a passion.

But at least you know what you get when you vote Labour. Vote for this lot and all you get is a mishmash of left v right identity crisis.

This lot clearly don't know their @rse from their elbow.

because you were duped. You THOUGHT you were getting UKIP and instead you got a bunch of a-holes who don't know their @rse from their elbow.

Normally you'd get decent Kippers but I'm afraid down at Thurrock they are the duff crop.

Next time do some research on the candidates before you vote, seriously.

Robert Ray and co abstained from the mayoral vote thus giving control to Labour.

Talk about lily livered. See my above comments.

Pity he never abstained on the merger with Barking and Dagenham. Thurrock UKIP group, turkeys voting for Christmas.
