Proud to change again?

with 5 comments

Councillor Ian Proud, Newcastle upon Tyne

South Tyneside politician about to change coats again perhaps?

Back in March 2006 I introduced you to Ian Proud, a local man with strong political ambitions, I used to work with him here in South Shields about twenty five years ago (he had a strong sense of humour then too), I even took his wedding photographs for him at Jarrow Register Office.

Back then I considered his coat of many colours as he moved from one party to another, then another. He moved to Newcastle and became a city councillor, I called him a political chameleon in April 2008 and we discovered that he’s now part of a longish list of politicians who couldn’t make their minds up on which side of the fence had the fewest spelks. In May of last year he managed to prop up the poll by coming last in a local election representing UKIP, and now rumours come to me from Newcastle that once again he is about to change his technicolour dreamcoat.

There are strong suggestions that he is seeking the candidature for the Conservative Party in the Denton ward, where he has previously ran as Lib-Dem, Labour, Independent, and UKIP. So if anyone can confirm what Jarrow born Proud is really up to, I’m sure we’d be interested to hear from you.

  5. I hear the fat prick is working to help children now. What a shame for them. Ever since he made reference on his Facebook page to a certain childrens fast food restaurant being connected with a child abuse club and quoting that his old friends are members of. Makes you wonder what planet Ian Proud is actually on. This should be looked into by the relevant authorities. His facts are very misguided and so are that of his sheep.
