A new political party for Great Yarmouth has launched its own website, which is asking people if they want to be part of change in the borough.

The Tribune Party was officially set up by former UKIP members, including borough councillors, Adrian Myers and Robert Connell, at the tail end of last year.

Its chairman is Michael Monk, who was written a message to launch the party’s website www.tribuneparty.org
Mr Monk, who has spent the last 28 years in the fire protection industry, said: “I have often been asked ‘Why set up another political party in Great Yarmouth?’

“The answer is that we believe that Great Yarmouth Borough Council is best run by the people that live in the Great Yarmouth area, not by a national political party.

“The evidence of the last few decades makes it clear that this simply isn’t working.

“The benefit of having no allegiance to any national political party is that we have no ideological baggage.”
