so it looks as if theThe Infighting has moves up a gear in Ukip with an over threat by Nigel Farage, who is still clearly the defacto leader of Ukip, to his puppet placement Paul_Nuttall that ‘if his long term supporter and bagman Paul Nuttall fails to achieve what Nigel Farage himself failed to do in 23 years, mostly in leadership or with puppets like Roger Knapmann, Malcolm Pearson and the like – Paul Nuttall is finished’.
Nigel Farage is threatening Paul Nuttall with the boot if he fails to get MPs elected to Westminster when he stood himself 7 times and never came anywhere near election and the only GE achievement was to have the Tory defector Douglas Carswell hang onto his Tory support as an MP who was Ukip by name but NEVER toed the Ukip line.
After Paul Nuttall’s humiliating defeat in Stoke how can you expect to get this sad little man with his faux CV and implusible claims to lead anything much more complex than a rubber duck on a string around a bath!
So Paul Nuttall has effectively been given his marching orders boots and all – what then? Will Nigel Farage, who is still Ukip’s leader in the EU and effective leader on a defacto basis in the UK be returning as leader or will it just be an embarrassing list of nebishes – I have a feeling Tiny Tim Farron will be looking for a job too so perhaps he will consider leading Ukip for a few weeks as a succession of others have!
Already Ukip’s candidates for the May election are reduced by at least half relative to the last time and just who do they have who has the stature or competence to be an MP? They are bereft of leadership, have no backer or even backers of any note and have a bunch of largely squabbling clowns as MEPs – I should also remind you that they are still under investigation over 100s of £1,000s of fraudulently squandered public money – possibly even £Millions by both OLAF and now I understand the British authorities, corrupt as they have been proven to be in the past, relative to Ukip, are also investigating.
I gather Ukip is under suspicion of links to Russian funding and there is even talk that they may well be involved with Trump staff not just in Russian funding but also under investigation relative to the Rico Act – The Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act, commonly referred to as the RICO Act or simply RICO, is a United States federal law!
I do tend to believe that Paul Nuttall is not alone in being way out of his depth!
Nigel Farage piles the pressure on Ukip leader Paul Nuttall by giving him just SIX WEEKS to prove himself – or face being booted out the top job
- Mr Farage said the General Election will be a verdict on the party’s leadership
- His warning comes after a period of bitter in-fighting and electoral flops in Ukip
- Mr Nutall has said the party hopes to win a handful of sets on June 8
- UKip could be on its fourth leader in a year if Mr Nuttall is ousted
The MEP said he would ‘work closely’ with and ‘support fully’ the man who holds his old job, but warned the General Election would be a verdict on his leadership.
It means the crisis-hit party could get its fourth leader in less than a year if Mr Nuttall fails to make good on his pledge to win a ‘handful’ of seats in the June 8 election.
Nigel Farage has warned that Paul Nuttall has just six weeks to prove himself as Ukip leader or face being ousted form the top job
And Mr Farage said he is still deciding whether to run for Parliament for an eighth time.
Asked about his verdict on Mr Nuttall’s leadership, told BBC’s Radio 4’s Today programme this morning: ‘He’s got six weeks to prove himself, hasn’t he?’
He added: ‘Paul has walked into this job and I guess he’s probably been shocked at how tough it is.
‘But he now realises exactly what he’s facing and I think he’ll come through very strongly.’
Mr Nuttall has faced fierce criticism amid bitter in-fighting in his party.
He was left personally humiliated when he failed to be elected to the ‘Brexit capital’ of Stoke-on-Trent earlier this year after running a scandal-hit campaign.
Meanwhile, Mr Farage said he is still mulling over whether to stand again in South Thanet when Britain goes to the polls this summer.
But he insisted that he would win if he threw his hat in the ring, saying:’I think I would, yes,’
He said he will make up his mind in the next couple of days.
Mr Farage has been making the most of his time since stepping down as Ukip leader. As well as striking up a close friendship with US President Donald Trump he has been posting holiday snaps, including this one of him catching Bluefin Tuna in the Adriatic Sea
He said: ‘I haven’t decided yet. I have got to weigh it up.
‘I’m still leading a group in the European Parliament where, of course, ultimately there will be a veto over the whole Brexit deal and where the negotiations will take place over the next two years and I’ve got to weigh up where am I best to be in terms of having an impact on Brexit and perhaps warning the British public that it’s not going in the direction it should be.’
Mr Farage suggested he lost in South Thanet in 2015 ‘perhaps in circumstances that weren’t entirely fair but we’ll let the Crown Prosecution Service decide about that’ following claims the Conservatives breached election spending limits.
The CPS is said to be considering bringing charges against 30 people over the elections expenses scandal.
The former Ukip leader insisted voters should back his party to ensure there was a ‘strong’ voice holding Theresa May to account.
‘This Prime Minister gives fabulous speeches,’ he said. ‘She uses words and phrases that I have been using and have been condemned for 20 years.
‘It all sounds wonderful. When she was home secretary, remember, she was going to reduce immigration. Did she? Not a bit of it.’
Ukip is fourth in the polls, lagging behind the Lib Dems. Leader Paul Nuttall says he wants to win a handful of seats in the vote
