Hi,

whether one likes Godfrey Bloom or Nigel Farage is not of any consequence, in the field of politics they are both dangerous fools in political terms, with their childish antics and undeniable racism and lack of competence or gravitas that is doing so much harm to the EUroSceptic cause.

Clearly the more dangerous is Nigel Farage, as some people are gullible enough to ‘follow’ him, resulting in his destruction of UKIP as a political party and its replacement with his cult led by a Harry Enfieldesque – braying, strident caricature of a 1980s Hurray Henry.

One need only watch him being lampooned by Diane Abbott & Michael Portillo and mocked by Andrew Neal

Bloom lets out a great snort.
He’s not interested. He’s not interested in the running of the party, or in making policy.
He’s Ukip’s chief salesman, that’s what Nigel is.

Nigel’s not interested in the running of the party, or making policy.

He’s Ukip’s chief salesman’Farage, he despairs, can’t take criticism, goes to pieces in a crisis, is really a conservative, and doesn’t even want to lead the party. “He’s not a team player, you see.

He didn’t play rugger. Plays golf!”

Bloom accuses Ukip’s leader of pursuing an “Ein Führer” leadership policy and a “No-policy” policy agenda, and claims Farage has already struck a secret election deal with the Tories in return for a seat in the Lords
.
These are some of the kinder things Bloom says about his flatmate Farage.

Having studied and dealt with Nigel Farage for well over a dozen years I regret Godfrey Bloom, liability to the EUroSceptic cause that he is, is spot on accurate about Nigel Farage, his incompetence, his insecurity and his thirst for position and money that clearly overide all other considerations.

It is quite astonishing that so many of the lesser Tories see Farage’s cult as a threat in any real terms though clearly UKIP has beguilled some of the more gullible – as Farage points out at every opportunity: A huge percentage of UKIP voters have absolutely no interest in politics and didn’t even vote in previous elections!

I for one do not feel that a drunken, braying entertainer represents me or British values in any way whatsoever!

Bloom reminds me of the small child, of whom the vain are warned, as he shouts out ‘The Emperor has no clothes on‘.

Let us not forget that Godfrey Bloom was dishonestly and corruptly put in place by Nigel Farage – yet another display of his incompetence in man management and ineptitude in character judgement that has marred his efforts to be taken seriously as a politician and not seen as a latter day Arthur Daley used car salesman, braying bon viveur and crashing bore, pint in hand & so common in many pubs, with a following of supporters, for as long as he buys the drinks!

Ukip’s Godfrey Bloom: ‘I just can’t resist a punch-up’

Godfrey Bloom split from Ukip in dramatic style earlier this year after an infamous speech denouncing aid to ‘bongo bongo land’ and a bust-up with party leader Nigel Farage. They’re still mates, he says – but perhaps not after Nigel reads this

Godfrey Bloom‘s study in his Yorkshire home looks so exactly as one would expect that it could almost be a stage set.

The walls are lined with military figurines, sporting trophies, photos of rugby teams and a ceremonial cricket bat, and the occupant plays the part of a blimpish ex-army caricature with terrific brio. He barks, “Bloom here. Hello my dear boy!” down the phone, refers to his wife as “Mrs Bloom”, wears a tweed cap, drives an MG, and loves to get roaring drunk.

He’d enjoyed a particularly satisfactory seven-hour drinking session in Brussels only two days earlier.“Hit it hard. And the beer there is all five on the Richter scale.

At the rugby club it’s 3.5. I can drink 3.5 all day.” His recent memoir is a lament for the 50s and the golden era of empire, the vernacular of “iffy” and “whizzo” and a cavalier approach to punctuation evidently all his own work, unless PG Wodehouse has taken up ghostwriting. Incorrigibly unbiddable and surprisingly camp, he reminds me of Giles Brandreth.

Unlike most politicians, Bloom loves to be interviewed, because “I never have to worry about what I said last time, because I’ve never changed my views.” About anything? “No. Never.” His brain, he boasts, tapping a temple, is “hermetically sealed.”

But beneath all the sergeant’s mess cliches there seems to be a surprisingly thoughtful person.
A former financial analyst, he likes to digress into little lessons on economic history, and obviously wishes people would see what an erudite intellectual he is. “Most people don’t know how the government fiddles the numbers. I do.”

He’s a dreadful show off, so there are constant references to political theorists, but he is genuinely interested in ideas, and certainly cleverer than most people probably imagine.

Whether anyone could ever be as clever as he likes to see himself, I am not sure.

When I ask who the brain of Ukip is today he hoots, “There are no brains of the party.” It used to be him? “Well, certainly one of the leading brains, yes.”

What about Nigel Farage – what’s he like when it comes to policy? Bloom lets out a great snort. “He’s not interested. He’s not interested in the running of the party, or in making policy. He’s Ukip’s chief salesman, that’s what Nigel is.”

Bloom and Farage have been great friends ever since the early days of Ukip. They share a flat in Brussels, a near-identical sense of humour and a manner so alike that if I close my eyes it could be Farage in the room. But at Ukip’s conference in September the leader withdrew the party whip from his friend in a fury, after Bloom risked an ill-advised joke about women being “sluts”, and whacked the Channel 4 news reporter Michael Crick over the head with a rolled-up conference programme.

Bloom refers to the ding-dong as “Crickgate”, and is not unaware of its comic dimension.I’m sure Bloom had resolved not to say anything unkind about Farage today – and on a personal level he mostly manages to be generous and warm.

When it comes to politics, however, he cannot help himself. Farage, he despairs, can’t take criticism, goes to pieces in a crisis, is really a conservative, and doesn’t even want to lead the party.

“He’s not a team player, you see. He didn’t play rugger. Plays golf!” Bloom accuses Ukip’s leader of pursuing an “Ein Führer” leadership policy and a “No-policy” policy agenda, and claims Farage has already struck a secret election deal with the Tories in return for a seat in the Lords.

Relations had been breaking down since the spring, when Farage appeared to change his mind about flat tax in the middle of Question Time.

Bloom asked what was going on, and “I got a quite hysterical text back: ‘Your job is to get out there delivering leaflets instead of asking me about policy!’

I thought, I’m your economics spokesman. You want me to deliver leaflets? Hysterical!”

Things got worse in July after Bloom’s infamous speech denouncing foreign aid to “Bongo bongo land”. Unnerved by the media uproar, Farage told him to apologise. “I said, ‘I don’t do apologies. If you keep a cool head, you will find it swings my way.'”

I don’t know anyone who changed their mind and decided “Bongo bongo land” wasn’t highly offensive after all – but Bloom insists: “We got more than 15,000 emails, only 47 against. I think we can deduce from that that I had massive public support.” But that was when the real trouble set in.

Farage complained to him: “Whenever I’m interviewed now, people want to talk about you.” Bloom thinks his friend became threatened by his media profile and public popularity, and that Crickgate had a lot to do with jealousy. “I’d taken the spotlight off his speech, that’s what it was all about! It was toys out of the pram.

Let’s be brutally honest. He panicked.

” Farage should have simply said the matter was being investigated, the media were “trying to crack us, but we’re going to stick together”, and moved on. “And the whole audience would have cheered.” He parodies the speech Farage did actually make, putting on a petulant, high-pitched wail and flapping his arms over his shoulders. “That’s it! Conference is ruined! Oh the conference is ruined!’

You know what one elderly Ukip lady said to me afterwards?” he can’t resist adding, “‘He gives girls a bad name’.”

When Farage phoned him up, “He’d lost it badly. Oh, he was really in pieces. It was: ‘Conference is over! No one’s going to look at my speech now!'” But later that day the party secretary told Bloom not to worry, assuring him, “We’ll smooth it all over.

We can’t afford to lose you, you’re too popular.” Bloom woke up the next day, “and there was Nigel Farage on the television, sacking me. I turn on and I’m being sacked on the telly!

It was like seeing your father disinherit you on TV because you broke a casserole dish.”Bloom didn’t think Crickgate had been that big a deal – “Nothing more than if I’d whacked a wasp in a pub garden”.

He doesn’t see how his dismissal could have had anything to do with the sluts joke or the Crick wallop, because his name was removed from the party’s MEP list less than 90 minutes later, before any investigation could have taken place. And he claims Ukip’s success in the north is almost entirely down to him, adding: “I’ve put more money into this party than Paul Sykes has up here. £150 grand. Yeah. From my private savings.

“So why,” he asks, “would they get rid of a huge electoral asset?” He feigns bafflement, before practically shouting: “Because I am diametrically opposed to any deal with the Conservative party! I would never have agreed to it, on a matter of a principle – so I had to go.

According to Bloom, Ukip is in the grip of an internal battle for its future.

At HQ “they are all stabbing each other in the back”, and the grassroots are being deliberately squeezed out. “They have been purged. This is 1933 Germany, night of the long knives. I’m waiting to be dragged out of the pub and butchered.

This is New Ukip now. And they are looking for a deal with the Tories.

Officially, Ukip’s politics are libertarian. But Bloom says Farage has always really been a Conservative, is “desperate to be a Conservative again”, and would pack it all in if we would just get out of Europe and crack down on immigration. “But we’re winning those arguments. We’ve broken through.

Now we’re in phase two. We’ve said what we don’t want, and now we have to say what we do want.

Farage, apparently, disagrees.

The party’s radical libertarian ideas frighten him. More importantly, they would make an electoral pact with the Tories in 2015 much trickier. And so, says Bloom, he has been marginalising grassroots members, sacking troublesome rivals, and turning himself into “a professional politician, with a professional party, so he can be within some alliance with the Conservative party”.

Bloom had to be elbowed out before a pact could be agreed. “And,” he says with confidence, “the deal has already now been done.

He’s unclear on its precise details, but certain that Farage’s reward for standing down Ukip candidates in key seats is a title and a seat in the House of Lords.

Would he want that? Bloom chuckles knowingly – “Not for him, of course!” – and adopts a weaselly, ever-so-‘umble voice. “‘But should one be forced upon me, then for the good of the party, and if people felt I could better serve there, well then … ‘ Of course he would!”Remarkably, Bloom and Farage are still friends. They met a few weeks after conference – in a pub, of course – and decided the disagreement was “strictly professional”. But Bloom isn’t going quietly. He says the whole business has been a blessing – his media profile has doubled, and he’s showered in good will wherever he goes.

“Now I don’t have Ukip antichrist on my forehead, everybody’s much friendlier! Really, it’s a weight off my shoulders. Because now I’m not hamstrung by the no-policy policy, I can start to talk about policy.”

Bloom would do away with the welfare state in its entirety, and “get back to the self-help we had in the 19th century. I’m a big believer in Friendly Societies.” Income tax would be flat, all drug use would be decriminalised, and drivers could drink as much as they liked, as long as they could prove they were still fit to drive. (“I could drive perfectly well after four pints.”)

The NHS would no longer be free, and in fact it would be a crime to call any public provision “free”. He’s deviating a little here from libertarian principle, he admits. “But it’s not free! We all have to pay for it.

We disagree about literally everything. But though I think his politics are wrong in every way, they aren’t irrational, nor a ragbag of random prejudice. Every now and then he’ll lapse into rugby club after-dinner speaker mode, which is hectoring and boring. But most of the time he is really thinking, and doesn’t get defensive about flaws in his logic, but positively lights up.

He says he wants strict, Canadian-style immigration controls, but surely, I suggest, once he’s got rid of the welfare state he should open our borders to the world.

The population would self-regulate by everyone competing on a level playing field, and indigenous Britons who didn’t like it could move elsewhere. He looks faintly startled, but quickly thinks it through. “If we could get rid of the welfare state that would work, ye-es. There would be no need for controls. Subject to criminal and health checks, of course.

Followed through to its logical conclusion, Bloom’s libertarianism leads him to problematic places. When he fails to justify opposing gay marriage on libertarian grounds, he admits, “Well, I do want to conserve some things.” He wants to protect people like the Christian B&B owners who turned away a gay couple, arguing “they should be allowed to say exactly who comes in and out of their property”.

Presumably pub landlords then should be allowed to put signs in their window saying “No blacks”?

“Oh. Never really thought about it, actually.” He swears he has never understood racism, doesn’t even notice skin colour, and can’t imagine why any publican would turn away customers. But after careful consideration he says, “Well, I do believe a publican should be allowed to say who he has in his establishment. So yes, his gaff, his rules.”

Given the hot water this should land him in, I find the loyalty to his own libertarian logic oddly touching.

I sincerely hope he’s wrong in thinking most voters share his views. He has decided not to stand as an independent MEP next year – “I wouldn’t have any trouble winning. But do I want to? Nah. Ten years of this game’s enough.” But he might run for Westminster in 2015.

“I just can’t resist a punch-up, that’s the trouble really. I just think it would be a bit of a lark, wouldn’t it?”

Just to correct a couple of facts – Godfrey Bloom is still a member of Nigel Farage’s extremist, racist and anti homosexual EFD Group in the EU. Godfrey Bloom & Farage still sharwe a flat. Nigel Farage has NOT withdrawn the whip from Godfrey Bloom as in EU politics the concept of whipping ones political party or political group is expressly forbidden. There is every possibility that Nigel Farage will reinstate Godfrey Bloom as lead candidate in the EU election in May at the very last minute just as he has the authority to replace any and all the candidates at the last minute – probably a neccessity when one looks at how low grade the present bunch are – sadly however with Farage leading the cult only low grade populist candidates, and rejects & failures from other parties, seem attracted to UKIP.

Farage would seem to have ensured that not a single solitary candidate of any stature or ethical merit features on his list of wannabe wealthy MEPs, lead candidates of singular obscurity backed by gutter sweepings of the Farage fan club, seeing it as an opportunity to ingratiate their way to a hand out from Farage’s funding on the gravy train!
