UKIP councillor denies claims he offered confidential Tory data to the Labour Party

Another day, another UKIP councillor story, this time about Cllr Matthew Smith:

A UKIP county councillor has denied claims he offered confidential Conservative Party data to Labour councillors – as a formal complaint was lodged…

In his letter to the ICO, Councillor Reynolds alleged: “In early 2011 a Mr Matthew Smith… a former employee of the Great Yarmouth Conservative Association, downloaded without permission all the data information held by the Great Yarmouth Conservative Association and then approached the Great Yarmouth Labour Party to offer them this information which they quite rightly refused to accept.”

In recent years Mr Smith has climbed from administrative clerk to county councillor and UKIP party agent – and is also UKIP’s contender to topple Great Yarmouth MP Brandon Lewis from power at the next general election.
