Hi,
it is a bitter irony for the Farage cult that after long years of desperate efforts to attract sitting Tory MPs, having only attracted the Tory’s failures and rejects, now the closest they are likely to come to having an MP elected, to Westminster next year, may well be an ex UKIP leader of UKIP who defected to the Tories several years ago.
Farage’s party has always been seen as a protest party as shown by their dismal showing in UK domestic elections when you consider they haven’t had a single candidate even come close to being elected to Westminster even in a by-election with all the odds on their side, as when they used the enbittered ex Tory long term MEP when they were riding the crest of there wve after the EU elections.
A measure of their failure in domestic politics has been their failure to have a single Mayor and the faxt that more Independents were elected as Police Crime Commissioners by a long shot than Farage had any chance of whilst their percentage of Councillors across the country has been risible and a significant number of them have had to resign due to their racist outbursts and general idiocy!
Now Craig MacKinlay stands every chance of being elected in Thanet possibly running against Farage, whose best achievement to date in Thanet, where he stood in 2005, was a meagre 2,079 votes and when he stood against John Berkow in Berkshire with both Labbour & the Lib.Dims. fielding no candidate in respect for the parliamentary convention of not standing against The Speaker of the House, he was beaten into third place by a relatively unknown Independent & Farage obtained a poor third with only 8%.
Craig MacKinlay stands every probability of being elected to the seat when he stands in 2015 to replace the Tory MP, Laura Sandys when she stands down. There is every possibility that Farage will not stand against MacKinlay as it would be the death nell of his party were he to be defeated in such a clash, as it would show all too clearly he has converted his party to a cult rather than as a serious political contender in domestic politics.
Having surrounded himself with ‘Praise Singers’ whom he has hansomely rewarded in return for their sycophancy and in some cases cash, with places high on his MEP selection list – thus having a gaggle of stunningly insignioficant and largely irrelevant MEPs willing to turn a blind eye to the racism and extremisim of many of UKIP’s members and particularly Farage’s chosen associates to build his ‘Milch Cow’ in the EU parliament for his EFDD vehicle.

Ex-Ukip leader Craig Mackinlay set to stand as Conservative MP for Thanet South

Thanet South was believed to be one of the constituencies Ukip leader Nigel Farage could have contested in next year’s general election

An ex-Ukip leader has been selected to stand as the Conservative candidate for the Kent constituency of Thanet South in next year’s general election.

Craig Mackinlay has been chosen by the Conservative Party to replace Laura Sandys as the candidate for the election set to take place in May 2015.

Mackinlay, who temporarily led Ukip in 1997 before being replaced by Michael Holmes, said in June that there was a “distinct possibility” that he could stand as the Tory candidate for the seat.

In 2005, Farage finished fourth when he stood in the same constituency, and it is believed he is eyeing up the seat for next year’s election.

A decision on which constituency Farage will contest is expected to be announced later this summer.

Mackinlay began his political career in the early 1990s as part of Alan Sked’s Anti-Federalist League, the party that would later become the UK Independence Party.

After being chosen as the person to replace Sked, he lost a leadership vote to Michael Holmes in 1997 and was demoted to the role of Ukip’s Deputy Leader until 2000.

Remaining active in the party for another five years, in 2005 he decided to switch allegiances and join the Conservative Party where he has served as a Tory councillor in the Medway council ever since.

He was also chosen as the Conservative candidate for Kent’s first ever Police and Crime Commissioner Elections in November 2012.

Farage has refused to comment on the Conservative’s decision to put forward his former Ukip colleague for the seat.

Mr Mackinlay will be up against Will Scobie (Labour), Russ Timpson (Liberal Democrats) and Ian Driver (Green Party)

quotations for those that back Nigel !

Nigel Farage.Image via Wikipedia

 

Craig Mackinlay, ex Vice Chairman and Leader of UKIP, on internal UKIP elections: “I will not be associated professionally or personally with what has become a perverted and shambolic process. Threats from the Party Chairman . . . merely add to the stink that now surrounds this election.

Frank Maloney Boxing Promoter UKIP Mayoral Candidate 2004 , PPC 2010- I stick by my opinions that ”Nigel is a schoolyard bully and I beleive that the other members have a right to know this” 2010

”Roger Knapman, ex Party Leader and MEP: “UKIP MEP’s met and agreed a statement of practice – first that we would not go on ‘junkets’ to other countries and secondly that we would not employ our wives. This was to prevent us getting dragged into the comfortable EU world that leads to ‘going native’. I am now very worried that this agreement is being ignored and that the attractions of the European Parliament as a career may beckon to some; where the delights of plush new office suites, Brussels titles and internal parliament or IndDem Group politics are more attractive than our original purpose

Richard North, ex UKIP Chief Researcher, writing of Farage: “He cannot tolerate anyone in the party who he feels is or might be in a position to challenge him. He prefers to surround himself with incompetents and deadbeats. Anyone who emerges who might show an independent streak, he ruthlessly eliminates, to ensure that they cannot be seen as competition.”

And again: “(Farage) . . . spends the bulk of his time manoeuvring and scheming to keep himself in the dominant position, while presenting to the world his “boyish charm.

“Gregg Beaman, ex North West Regional Organiser and former MEP candidate: “As far as Farage is concerned I knew when I met him, during the Preston by-election in 2000, that he was the personification of vanity and ego with little behind that wafer thin facade. I have seen his childish temper tantrums when he doesn’t get his own way, when I was on the NEC and later when I was on the Elections Committee. I have seen him bully people and have stood up to him when he has tried to bully me. He must be one of the coarsest most vulgar individuals I have ever come across. The proposed changes to the party constitution are a result of the complete lack of principle of the current leader and chairman and, it must be said, the lack of courage shown by certain members on the Party’s NEC.

”Bryan Smalley, Party Secretary for two years, wrote of Farage: “He is dishonest and frequently makes untrue statements”

”John Petley, ex UKIP researcher: “It really is now too much to expect the party to be turned round. Even removing Farage as leader will not solve it. His cronies hold all the positions of power, and there isn’t the time to winkle them all out. Sadly, for all the undoubted good UKIP has achieved, it is time for it to be dismembered. The wound is too deep. The poison has spread too widely. In 2004, UKIP had a great chance to advance the argument for British withdrawal from the EU. With the right approach, the argument could have been won irrevocably by now. Independence is so noble an objective, and there is so much to support this assertion.So UKIP has had its chance and blown it. We are left with only one option – to start again, learning from UKIP’s successes but more importantly, its failures.

“Dr Eric Edmond, ex NEC member and former MEP candidate: “He (Farage) has packed the NEC with his unelected nominees Andreasen, Nuttall and Arnott etc clearly to push through yet more undemocratic practices and consolidate his personal hold on the party.

Anthony Scholefield, Party Secretary for three years stated: “A disturbing feature is that Mark Croucher, UKIP Press Officer, shows UKIP members’ details to Communists and Socialist Workers via Searchlight and Unite Against Fascism. Croucher reports to Farage.

David Abbott, ex NEC member : “Our leader issues an edict that MEP’s wives must not be on the MEP’s payroll. Then he is caught paying his own wife.”And again: “These new revelations were on top of all his (ie Farage) more obvious defects including total amorality, bullying, adultery, and drunkenness, vengefulness and lying.
