Will the Independents stay that way?

I COULD not help noticing in the Evening News (April 21) the half page advert inserted by the Independents soliciting our votes in the local elections on May 5.

Am I the only person to recall that over the past few years some Independent councillors have, once elected, joined other political parties, especially the Conservatives, without seeking the views of their electorate?

It would be interesting to know when agreeing to stand as an Independent candidate they can promise to remain an Independent for the duration of the four years.
