UKIP Crawley in Disarray.

UKIP's outgoing Chairman Lee Gilroy and Council Candidate Simon Darroch

UKIP in Crawley have lost their front man, Lee Gilroy, after the Chairman sensationally announced he is going to quit his post, TBG can reveal.

Tory turncoat Gilroy says he has stepped down so he can, "Concentrate on his business and other activities". However, it is rumoured Gilroy was told last Friday he couldn't be parliamentary candidate, "so he has thrown his toys out of the pram", according to one source.

Gilroy told local rag Crawley News - "I took on the role as acting chairman in 2013 and have enjoyed the role and it's been interesting.

"I believe that an AGM will be held now and a new chairman will be elected along with a committee."

TBG understands that UKIP in Crawley may struggle to create a committee due to low membership.

The only known active member of the UKIP branch, Simon Darroch, is set to run for a spot on the council in October after fellow 'Kipper & another Tory turncoat Karl Williamson also recently quit his local position as UKIP's only councillor. Darroch is also widely tipped to take over from Lee Gilroy as UKIP Crawley Chairman.

Darroch has been the subject of much scrutiny amongst the Crawley population after posts on his Facebook account entertain conspiracies such as whether Flight MH17 was downed by Western intelligence agencies. And the sharing of yet more posts by the racist organisation Britain First.
