The corruption of EUkip’s leadership, 
their anti UKIP claque in POWER & the NEC 

is what gives the remaining 10% a bad name!

As This Blog Predicted – Open Warfare, Rivalry & Splits In Ukip are inevitable as the party has after 21 years still no responsible, honourable EU exit and survival strategy due to lack of competent leadership and consistent or costed policies.

Hi,
as I wrote is some detail the most likely outcome of Ukip’s lack of competent leadership would lead to the party’s own self destruction as the egos of diametrically opposed values and beliefs joined together for personal gain despite the divergence of their ideologies.
Ukip just isn’t stable enough to cope with the size of egos it has attracted and even prior to its present parlous position Nigel Farage had fallen out with or stabbed in the back around 1/3rd. of his elected team!

EXCLUSIVE: MOVES TO REMOVE O’FLYNN AFTER ANTI-BUSINESS NEWSNIGHT INTERVIEW

by ANDRE WALKER 17 Nov 2014, 1:34 AM
O'FLYNN, Patrick 02
Senior members of UKIP are campaigning behind the scenes to have Patrick O’Flynn MEP removed as economic spokesman after his appearance on the BBC’s Newsnight programme last Monday night. In the interview O’Flynn called for higher taxes on business, having previously called for a tax on the turnover of companies so they would pay even if they did not make a profit.
O’Flynn is widely seen as the standard bearer of the left of UKIP leading to “mutterings” against him. He is said to be keen to attract old Labour voters in places like Rotherham and Hull by pledging tax increases. At UKIP party conference he called for an increase in VAT on “luxury goods” such as shoes. The idea became known as the “Wag Tax” and caused so much embarrassment that Nigel Farage personally ticked off O’Flynn, and publicly distanced himself from the policy.
Mr O’Flynn then advocated creating a 35 percent tax rate, which would lead UKIP into the general election advocating higher taxes than the Conservatives for those earning £49,000 a year. He is also a firm opponent of flat tax, which was party policy when 25,000 of their members joined.
His opponents are now circulating a letter calling for him to go, which they hope to publish this week. One source who is not involved with the letter told Breitbart London: “He really does need to shut up with all talk of aggressive tax avoidance and bashing big business… It’s a real mistake to have a pinko in such an important position.
“O’Flynn always says he’s never been a member of any other political party. That’s not a good thing, it means he lived through the Thatcher era and didn’t get excited by it.”
Another said: “O’Flynn’s views are very dangerous for UKIP, he is determined to pander to the left in seats like Rotherham but this puts our core vote at risk. What’s the point in UKIP if all we do is swing with wind like the mainstream political parties. We’ve always prided ourselves on being above chasing whatever the latest opinion poll says.”
In the Newsnight interview O’Flynn said businesses should not take steps to legally avoid tax: “We have this missing tax revenue, don’t we, we have this big hole despite some decent economic growth. I believe the cosy cartel of corporate Britain has a major role in that, and some of those companies are not paying their way…. We want to be on the side of the people,” he said.
O’Flynn claimed that stopping tax avoidance “should not just be a left-wing point.” During the interview the MEP admitted he had never worked in a business role but claimed his time as a journalist at the Daily Express qualified him to hold his brief.
This led a third detractors to say: “Patrick’s claim to have had a ‘proper job’ is very thin. He is so wrapped up in his London bubble, that he can’t see the difference between reality and the airy fairy ideological talk at dinner parties in Zone 1.”

& for a different take on this obvious deepening rift of policy and fundamental ideology in Ukip, which shows the party to be in the ludicrous position of Nigel Farage losing his control as the only recognised spokesman and policy inventor in his party to a challenge that can only lead to be the battle for leadership of the party and control of its future direction, as the ambition and diversity of views is palpable and can not contain the two factions in the one party.
This is just as this blog predicted when Farage bribed Patrick O’Flynn to betray his trade ethics as a journalist and write promotional pieces in the Express for a considerable time, without telling his readers that he was to be rewarded with the leading regional position and a near certain walk into the highly rewarded position of MEP, on the list system!
Ukip’s position gets yet more parlous as clearly Douglas Carswell, who now wields considerable clout within the UK base of Ukip as both an ex Tory and an elected MP and it is clear that his position is hugely different to that of Nigel Farage.
Clearly Nigel Farage’s income stream is deeply challenged and he will fight to the death to hang onto his position on the gravy train at all costs – clearly Ukip will be the victim in this three way power struggle.
Whatever the outcome of this rivalry there is no way it can be of benefit to Ukip but the winner can expect to follow Nigel Far5age in being able to make many £Millions personally and have at their disposal a great deal of ‘largess’ to spread amongst his family and chums as Farage has done for many years.

Firing Patrick O’Flynn would signal the start of Ukip’s slide back into fringe insignificance

But what else can Nigel Farage do to maintain his income stream & unique position?

The contradictions between Ukip’s Left and the Right threaten to tear the party apart

I suppose it was inevitable that, as Ukip gathered support, the party would start to collapse under the weight of its own contradictions.

An enormous split has now opened up over the economy. Indeed it is more correct to call it an abyss. It is far deeper and more divisive than anything currently going on inside the Conservative Party, or even in Ed Miliband’s Labour Party.

On the one side is Ukip’s libertarian Right, which wants Britain to resemble the United States as much as possible, with low taxes and minimal standards of social provision.

Its supporters say they look to Margaret Thatcher for their inspiration. But the truth is that Maggie Thatcher in office very rarely touched any of these advanced libertarian ideas, such as the flat tax.

This group cannot count for a great deal of support from ordinary members. It is, however, well represented among the small number of donors who dominate the party finances and can always rely on the ear of Nigel Farage.

Ukip also has a Left wing, and it is becoming clear that the party’s economics spokesman Patrick O’Flynn is its leader.

At Ukip’s party conference six weeks ago, Mr O’Flynn made a speech that appalled the libertarian Right of the party. Ever since then, its supporters have been intriguing against him and seeking to bring about his downfall.

There are two key elements of Mr O’Flynn’s speech. On the one hand, Mr O’Flynn advocated sharply raising income tax thresholds, so that middle earners did not come into the top rate of tax. This idea was promptly copied by David Cameron in his speech in Manchester the following week. Mr O’Flynn’s second idea was a tax on luxury goods, the so-called “Wag tax”. However, Ukip’s Right wing got hold of Nigel Farage immediately after Mr O’Flynn’s speech and forced the Ukip leader to distance himself from his economic spokesman.

The party’s Right is now planning to strike again against Mr O’Flynn, as Andre Walker this morning reveals in a well-informed piece on Breitbart. According to Mr Walker, the senior members of Ukip are now making a concerted effort to get Mr O’Flynn removed.

One source is quoted as saying that Mr O’Flynn needs “does need to shut up with all talk of aggressive tax avoidance and bashing big business … It’s a real mistake to have a pinko in such an important position …” According to Breitbart, a letter will soon be circulated calling for him to go.

I should declare an interest. Mr O’Flynn was my colleague for many years on the Daily Express. He is a man who’s integrity and intellect I greatly admire. With his first-class degree in economics from King’s College Cambridge, he has always struck me as far more intelligent, and also far more connected with the views of ordinary voters, than George Osborne, the Chancellor.

I strongly believe that if the Ukip donors succeed in getting rid of Patrick O’Flynn it will mark the moment when the party returns to becoming a fringe movement of no significance. Mr O’Flynn’s emergence as a senior figure within the party has coincided with an exponential growth of party support amongst working-class voters, especially in the Midlands and the North. Indeed, as Matthew Goodwin pointed out in his article in the Telegraph today, Ukip support is by no means dependent on a small number of former Thatcherites.

Mr Farage claims to represent a different kind of politics to the mainstream political parties. There is some truth in this, but he is every bit as dependent on big powerful donors as is either David Cameron or Ed Miliband. He is in danger of allowing this dependence to damage the integrity of his party, with just six months to go before the general election.
