Hi,

I believe UKIP has been shown in its true colours – I dealt with much of what is revealed, yet again, at CLICK HERE

Nigel Farage wants Ukip to remain ‘a bunch of amateurs’

Ukip cannot become a professional political organisation that threatens the main parties because Nigel Farage refuses to give up power over it, the party’s former chief executive has said.

Chief executive of Ukip leaves after eight months in job

Mr Gilpin is said to have left on good terms 

Will Gilpin, who left his job this week, said that Mr Farage’s reluctance to accept professional management means Ukip will remain “a bunch of enthusiastic amateurs” who never fulfil their political potential.

Mr Gilpin, a former RAF pilot hired to professionalise Ukip, told theTelegraph that Mr Farage and his inner circle resisted his efforts to improve the party’s management and organisation.

Mr Gilpin is a former RAF Tornado pilot who then spent a decade working on major projects for organisations including BP and the Home Office.

He joined Ukip last year, and said he found a chaotic and disorganised party built around Mr Farage’s personality and whims.

“The thing I am most shocked by is that Nigel does his own thing without the party knowing where he is or what he is doing,” he said.

“Nigel is a great orator and a useful man for the party, but you have to use him in the scope of the wider organisation, rather than thinking ‘It’s all about Nigel’.

“Nigel would see the party as being about him. The party is structured like a flying wedge, pushing Nigel forward.”

Focusing on the 2015 general election, Mr Gilpin drew up plans for a standardised plan for election campaigns across the country, a “lessons learned” culture to ensure constant improvements, and a training regime for staff and candidates. He also planned a new structure to address the “big hole” in Ukip’s policy agenda.

Updating the party’s organisation would inevitably reduce Mr Farage’s influence over Ukip, Mr Gilpin said. “Nigel has to have less power. There is no way around it.”

What’s the biggest problem facing Ukip?
They’re not professional enoughThe fact that they’re not polished is an asset to them – it’s our voting system that limits themNigel Farage has too much control over the partyNigel Farage doesn’t have enough control over the partyThey don’t promote or value women

However, he said, he was blocked by Mr Farage and his circle, who resisted changes that would formalise party rules and make them more accountable to members.

“The leap from being a small group of people who have fun and do what they want to being a professional political party was too much,” Mr Gilpin said.

The refusal to change will limit Ukip’s ability to win Westminster seats in 2015, he said.

“The party has decided it likes things the way they are – so Ukip remains a bunch of enthusiastic amateurs having a good time, rather than the professional fighting team they could be,” he said.

“Individually, they have the skills to make that happen, but that means working together, and that is not really happening.”

In 2015, Mr Gilpin said, Mr Farage and his team will underperform.

“They might still win some seats – but not as many as they would if they organised and structured themselves to make the most of what they have,” he said.

Ukip sources have this week suggested that Mr Gilpin left because he was better suited to running IT systems than to a senior management role.

Mr Gilpin said he left the party because of Mr Farage’s refusal to implement his plans.

“I left by mutual agreement in response to my dissatisfaction at the fact I was not being allowed to do the job I was hired to do, which was to professionalise the party,” he said.

A Ukip spokesman said that Mr Gilpin “leaves with a great deal of warmth”.

He said: “He has worked very hard to provide the structures that he was asked to provide and which proved very uncomfortable to some in the party. He has been very successful and we wish him all the best.”

The party has not said who will replace Mr Gilpin. Rumours have suggested that Mr Farage is keen for the job to go to Neil Hamilton, the former Conservative MP who joined Ukip in 2002, but party sources insisted that was not the case.

It becomes increasingly obvious that Farage’s party is unfit for office and is incompetent to manage its own affairs with any sense of responsibility let alone represent the voters in any position of authority.

One is forced to wonder if on top of the huge number of allegations of corruption and dishonesty that UKIP has been totally incapable of rebutting over many years and the many broken promises they have made to gain election (though largely they have failed to dupe the voters) could these latest revelations together with the all too plausible claims of rigging the selection of their list of staggeringly mediocre MEP candidates could this be the beginning of the end of the Farage cult?

That in the form of UKIP Farage’s cult is further demeaned by the crass comments of senior members like Godfrey Bloom, the appointment as a ‘fit individual’ of the liar & cheat Neil Hamilton to their NEC or the fantasist and thoroughly unpleasant and crass Mick McGough as an executive of the clique on the NEC – there are so very many examples that it merely becomes a bore to list them again when the articles regarding the departure of their CEO and the desperate efforts of Farage to try to hold the line, as shown in the media article below are so damaging.

Clearly yet another nail in the coffgin of any pretence that Farage’s party has any credibility comes with their MEP and past deputy leader of the party resorting to law to try to force UKIP to act legally and ethically (fat chance!) CLICK HERE

Nigel Farage to take a step back from politics to ‘get a grip’ on Ukip

Nigel Farage has said that he will take a step back from public politics so that he can “get a grip” on Ukip by taking “direct control” of the party.

Following criticism from Will Gilpin, Ukip’s former chief executive, Mr Farage said that he will now do “less politics” in a bid to “professionalise” the organisation.

Mr Gilpin, who left this week, said that Mr Farage’s reluctance to accept professional management means the Ukip will remain “a bunch of enthusiastic amateurs” who never fulfil their political potential.

He said that Mr Farage “has to have less power” if Ukip is to become a professional political organisation.

However, in an interview with The Telegraph, Mr Farage said that Mr Gilpin “couldn’t be more wrong”.

Mr Farage said that he had given up “total control” of the party in 2010 in order to “lead” rather than “manage” Ukip.

“I gave up total control of Ukip in 2010,” Mr Farage said. “I got re-elected on the slogan of ‘Vote for me to lead the party not run or manage it’.”

In an apparent criticism of Mr Gilpin’s work with Ukip, Mr Farage added: “The party does need professional management but thus far we haven’t found the person to deliver it.”

Mr Farage said that he will now take more control of the party until he is “confident” the right managerial structure is in place.

“I gave up all managerial control of the party in 2010, I gave it up to a new group of people and at the moment we haven’t got to where we need to and so therefore…I will now be once again taking back some direct managerial control of the party until I’m confident we’ve got the right people in place.

“I will have to do less politics, fewer interviews, fewer public meetings, fewer appearances and I will have to spend more time directly overseeing the jobs being done, because the problem we have had is one of non-delivery.”

Asked if that will mean he is less of a public figure in the coming months Mr Farage said: “I’m afraid I’m going to have to be. It’s not what I intended but we do need to get a grip on things. We do need to professionalise things and so I’m going to have to take a much more direct, managerial role.”

However, Mr Farage also said that he “hopes” Ukip members are “enthusiastic amateurs”.

“In many ways I think that enthusiastic amateurs and people who actually believe in what they are doing is in a way our key energy point and our key dynamic,” he said. “All you have to do with that is to make sure that it’s managed and directed in the right way.”

Mr Gilpin has said that his departure was prompted by Mr Farage’s refusal to implement his plans.

“I left by mutual agreement in response to my dissatisfaction at the fact I was not being allowed to do the job I was hired to do, which was to professionalise the party,” he said.

The party has not said who will replace him, but rumours suggest Mr Farage wants Neil Hamilton, the former Conservative MP who joined Ukip in 2002.

A Ukip spokesman said that Mr Gilpin “leaves with a great deal of warmth“.

Clearly the article above shows just how much of a problem Farage and his party have – the dilema is that having regularly purged his party of anyone who might challenge or outshine his particular talents as a performer he now findas himself in a position of desperation where he feels forced to give up the one thing he is indisputably good at – being the affable cheeky chappie as a performer with his 3 or 4 set speeches and his readiy if disingenuous smile acting as the party performer and face of the party to try to manage the party – a job for which he has shown no ability nor credibility.

We must remember that it was Farage who has repeatedly promised to professionalise the party before elections over many years yet has abjectly failed to deliver. It was also Farage who promised the electorate that no one in UKIP would ever employ family, on Meridian TV and elsewhere, yet was exposed paying his wife Kirsten £30,000 a year by Daniel Foggo in the broadsheet media.

Subsequently it was shown that even his constituency office was not only unaware of this dishonest scam but could identify no work that Kirsten Farage performed for the party!

Then it was found that despite reaffirmation of the promises Farage’s drinking buddy Godfrey Bloom was not only renting a family owned property but employing members of his family. There were also allegations that Farage’s long term associate Gerard Batten was using UKIP money to publish anti Islamic pamphlets likely to incite racial disharmony and paying over the odds to his brother to print them!

It has also been shown on the public record that sums of money which may well exceed at least a £Million has been spiritted away unaccounted for not to mention substantial sums of money converted from the party RBS bank account as unaccountable cash.

There is also the matter of over 50% of Nigel Farage’s office account of some £450,000 being glibbly dismissed as ‘Sundry expenses’  whilst the accountant who presented the account from the trial balances of David Samuel Camps (Office Manager of a staff of 2!) the accountant was paid £6,000!!!

What happened to the cinsequential amount of cash collected in buckets by Nigel Farage’s placement John Moran, during the period when UKIP was trying to gain publicity from their breech of electoral law, for which they were found guilty!
OR
for that matter what happened to over 85% of the cash collected as a result of the Ashford, apparent scam, also involving the proven liar John Moran and others – it was Richard Suchorzevski who exposed the probable fraud and theft of the money which the chairman at the time David Bannerman admitted in a public meeting was unaccounted but that less than 15% of the money collected ever reached UKIP!

Now we are expected to believe that Nigel Farage has the skills, competence and experience to professionalise his party – I think not, when you consider his staggering lack of jusgement when it comes to appointments and backing them, to name a few:
Godfrey Bloom, Mark Croucher, Clive Page, Annabelle Fuller, Hugh Williams, Robert Kilroy Silk, Marta Andeasen, David Bannerman, Christopher Monkton, Andrew Smith, Tom Wise, Mick McGough, Douglas Denny, Neil Hamilton, Michael Pearson, Gawain Towler and many others who have similarly proved to be catastrophic for the party in their own varied ways.

Clearly Fasrage is NOT the man to professionalise his party he has shown he is not fit for the job!

UKIP chief walks out after only eight months after struggling to adapt to ‘individualistic DNA’ of the party

  • Chief executive Will Gilpin ‘far better suited to’ corporate IT, say party sources
  • Former RAF pilot hoped to make UKIP more professional
  • Ex-Tory MP Neil Hamilton rumoured as replacement

The chief executive of UKIP has left after only eight months in the job, because he struggled to adapt to the ‘individualistic DNA’ of the party.

Will Gilpin, a former RAF pilot, started at the UK Independence Party last December, hoping to make it more professional.

But Mr Gilpin, who has also worked as a computer security guru and Home Office adviser, is now returning to corporate IT, which party sources say ‘he is far better suited to’.

‘Mutual agreement’; Will Gilpin will leave his role as chief executive of UKIP

'Mutual agreement': Will Gilpin will be leaving UKIP after only eight months to return to corporate IT ‘Better suited’: Gilpin will return to his career in corporate IT

Mr Gilpin, a former RAF pilot, started at the UK Independence Party last December, hoping to make it more professional.

But Mr Gilpin, who has also worked as a computer security guru and Home Office adviser, is now returning to corporate IT, which party sources say ‘he is far better suited to’.

The party said Mr Gilpin had struggled to adapt to working at a smaller organisation which relied heavily on volunteers, and where the ‘DNA is individualistic’.

UKIP insisted there was no bad blood and that the decision not to renew his contract had been made by ‘mutual agreement’.

A party spokesman said: ‘We thank him for his time, effort and the hard work he has put in and wish him all the best for the future.’

A source added that there was ‘no question of Will failing in the role’.

There is now speculation that former Tory MP turned UKIP supporter, Neil Hamilton, may take the top role. But the spokesman said he was ‘not aware’ of this.

Mr Gilpin, who describes himself as ‘socially liberal’, graduated from Cambridge with a computer science degree.

The former Tornado pilot also has a psychology degree from the Open University, makes films and builds websites.

 

He has already updated his profile on professional networking site LinkedIn.

It lists his past occupation as ‘CEO/Head of IT for a political party’. It does not name UKIP.

Mr Gilpin has also worked for the Home Office, Learning and Skills Council, Lloyds TSB and BP.

UKIP has enjoyed a huge surge in popularity over the past year and is now third in the opinion polls, at 14 per cent, in front of the Lib Dems on ten per cent.

But it has still been embroiled in controversy thanks to some of its more eccentric members.

Earlier this month, it emerged that UKIP candidate Dean Perks had given a speech supporting Sharia law. He said if someone was faced with the threat of having their hand chopped off, they would not steal.

Just days later, UKIP MEP Godfrey Bloom prompted outrage by suggesting that foreign aid was going to ‘bongo bongo land’.

It is clear that the media is developing a contempt for Farage’s partyy and as such UKIP’s meaningful support is bound to be damaging as the truth about their inadequies to the task and both corruption and crass behaviour render the party unfit for office in its present form – A fact that Will Gilpin is merely the most recent of a long line of competent people has shown – though to be fair UKIP has gained in support with the demise of The BNP and as a result of their own racism and anti homosexuality with its associates in their EFD Group!
