Clean EUkip up NOW & make UKIP electable!
The corruption of some of EUkip’s leadership
& NEC is what gives the remaining 10%
a bad name!
ACCURATE KNOWLEDGE OF EUkip FALLING – SEEMINGLY AMONGST THE MEEEJA!
It is astonishing not only just how ill informed are so called professional journalists but I also get the impression it is not only ill informed but fundamentally dishonest.
This artucle by Ian Dale from his web site is quite staggering in its inaccuracy or is it DISHONESTY?
The Independent has a lengthy analysis by Ben Russell of the situation UKIP finds itself in, ahead of the Euro elections.
I don’t want to comment too much on this as I have an article in next month’s GQ profiling Nigel Farage (From what we hear of this it sounds as if it is in American parlance no more than ‘blowing smoke up his ass’, almost ‘advertorial’ – G.L-W.) and looking at UKIP’s prospects, but I do think Ben Russell is broadly right in his analysis, which suggests that the party is going to find it very difficult indeed to retain all their seats. (No doubt a EUphamism for well nigh totally impossible and may I remind you Farage himself has stated that 10 or less seats will be a failure of his leadership and he has promised to resign if he fails – resign as leader of the Party he built ASND ruined and IF elected resign as an MEP. – GL-W)
One thing I hadn’t realised, though. Apparently Professor Tim Congdon has defected back to the Conservatives. He is a formidable economic brain. I wonder how long it will be before Malcolm Pearson travels the same path?
UPDATE: A reader points out that Richard North wrote yesterday on EU Referendum that most of UKIP’s woes are all down to one man – Nigel Farage. Wrong. Farage is the only recognisable UKIP figure and he has given it a profile in the media few others could have achieved. The problem for UKIP is that is has too many people pulling in different directions. Farage has tried to modernise it, but has been fought every step of the way.
What an astonishing misunderstanding of how politics works from Ian Dale – I am astonished at the stupidity of his comments – I appreciate he has many an axe to grind an wears many a hat in his shaving mirror but his understanding of EUkip and also he seems to have swallowed almost every piece of propaganda The Faragista Fan Club has ‘snowed’ him with!
Let’s consider Ben Russell’s fantasies in The Independent and take just a few and look at them!
When Ukip won 2.7 million votes it vowed to become the third force in British politics.
Ben Russell on a party in meltdown……..
What a difference five years make.
The morning after the previous European elections, the UK Independence Party (Ukip) was emerging as a significant force, the third-biggest British political troop in Europe.
The television chatshow host Robert Kilroy-Silk had helped propel the party to 2.7 million votes – 16 per cent of the poll. (He had done very little in Political terma but as a ‘celeb’ he had raised the profile. – GL-W)
Twelve European Parliament seats (and the very mention of the party’s name) provoked real fear as well as loathing among senior figures in the then-embattled Conservative Party, gripped by the prospect that Ukip could threaten their core vote. (This is a myth relative to Westminster and all but a fool knows it. GL-W.)
Senior Tories shudder no longer. As Ukip prepares last-ditch defences ahead of this June’s Euro elections, the party has been dogged by scandal and infighting. (Virtually all of which has been centred on and caused by Nigel Farage. GL-W.)
Mr Kilroy-Silk has long departed in acrimony (Due to the lies of Farage who promised him the leadership if he was elected. GL-W.) and the current leader, Nigel Farage, has faced bitter recriminations over the party’s direction as it enters polls that will determine whether it continues to exist as a serious political unit. (Farage has failed as a leader to show or provide leadership – the direction is muddled and amateur. GL-W.)
The party has garnered only between 1 and 2 per cent of voters’ support in recent polling, although the only poll of Euro election voting intentions did put its support at 7 per cent. Its party conference in September was overshadowed by reports of plotting, intrigue and extraordinary internal feuds. (It was a shambols but do not forget Farage was leader! GL-W.)
In September, The Independent revealed that the party’s press officer, Annabelle Fuller, had resigned after receiving phone threats. (This was a pack of manufactured lies and that Farage colluded in the lies should be a matter of shame to him. That this was the ONLY publicity he managed to get for the annual party conference speaks volumes! GL-W.)
Senior Tories breathed sighs of relief as they watched the events in Bournemouth unfold. (It was an unmittigated disaster for EUkip. An utter embarrassment. GL-W.)
The Ukip website boasts of the party’s antics in the European Parliament last month, where MEPs sang the national anthem out of tune to disrupt their colleagues’ rendition of the EU “anthem”, Beethoven’s “Ode to Joy”. (Well that really was an achievement – the very pinacle of 5 years!!!! GL-W.)
They have blamed the part-privatisation of the Royal Mail on EU directives and linked increases in the rat population to European recycling targets. (However they have failed abysmally to get the message out and it was they who signed Britain up for GREATER subsidiarity and an undertaking to work WITH the EU in committee to strengthen the EU’s control over its vassal states! GL-W.)
Yesterday, the former One Man and His Dog presenter Robin Page announced his resignation from the party, claiming his former colleagues were “in the process of imploding”.
He accused Mr Farage of despotic tendencies and obtaining “almost complete centralised power of Ukip”. (Mr Farage says constitutional changes passed earlier this year were a “tidying-up operation” and accuses Mr Page of sour grapes.) (Well what else COULD Farage say! No one has ever known him admit he has ever made a mistake! He just isn’t mature enough! GL-W.)
Earlier this month, the economist Professor Tim Congdon quit to rejoin the Conservatives.
Mr Farage has also faced attacks from two senior figures expelled from the party’s national executive amid a row over reforms to its constitution, with his critics taking to the blogosphere to vent their spleens. (Is that MSM speak for try to prevent a fascist centralisation and force democracy on the party? GL-W.)
Meanwhile, Ukip’s membership has fallen from a peak of 26,000 (29,000+ GL-W.) to about 15,000 (Claimed but not reflected in activity – many moribund members and duplicates in that figure. GL-W.). Donations last year reached £200,000, sharply down on the £377,000 raised in 2007, although the party says it has raised hundreds of thousands of pounds this year in preparation for the June ballots. (There is absolutely no evidence of this and every effort has fallen very far short. GL-W.)
Ukip is defending nine of the 12 seats it won in 2004. Mr Kilroy-Silk quit to form his own Veritas party, Ashley Mote was expelled after being arrested for benefit fraud, while Tom Wise was suspended (This is untrue – he is still a EUkip member and EUkip MEP. The claims of withdrawing the whip are dishonest as EUkip has no whip and Wise has been working WITH EUkip throughout. GL-W.) after being investigated by EU anti-fraud watchdogs.
Mr Farage admitted that the June elections represent a crucial test for his party. But he insisted that Ukip could maintain or even exceed its 2004 high water mark.
He said his opponents were “middle-aged, elderly men diametrically opposed to many of the things I stand for”. (Drunken loutish behaviour, childish stunts, prostitutes, whoring, infidelity, lack of leadership, dishonesty etc. Yeah for once he is telling the truth! GL-W.)
He added: “I think the party has changed. It is much more diverse in terms of its ethnic mix. It has been seen as a bank of angry old men from the rugby club. That situation is very different now.”
The Ukip peer Lord Pearson of Rannoch, who caused a storm by inviting the right-wing Dutch MP Geert Wilders to the House of Lords to screen a controversial anti-Islam film, insisted that he supported Mr Farage but admitted the party faced internal challenges to his leadership.
“I think most of the real people in the party have not got time for all this internal sniping and plotting,” he said. (He is right most do not care enough. GL-W.)
“They spent quite a lot of time lining me up as the next leader. I think they are bonkers.” Ukip will launch its Euro election campaign next month under the slogan “Lend us your Vote”, an attempt to persuade voters to abandon their traditional loyalties for the day and make the poll a referendum on the EU.
(The way to make the election a ballot on the EU is to encourage ALL Parties to write on their ballot paper LEAVE THE EU – that way every party can contribute and have their vote count in the referendum and the fall of Party votes will show the politicians they MUST consider their EU masters and LEAVE THE EU. GL-W.)
Mr Farage takes comfort from a YouGov poll on European Parliament voting intentions for the Taxpayers’ Alliance earlier this year, which put Ukip on 7 per cent, still far below the 16 per cent high of 2004. But a string of national polls put Ukip support at between 1 and 2 per cent – which would be enough to make it electorally significant in a handful of areas.
Today Ukip must fight a revitalised Tory party challenging Labour over the economy, not the demoralised opposition of five years ago.
Labour MEPs believe Ukip will retain three of their nine seats, while senior Tories have not yet written the party off, believing that concerns over immigration and arguments about British jobs could drive some voters into their arms.
Last year’s local elections showed Ukip considerably weaker than four years previously, when the poll coincided with the Euro elections: the party managed just 1.9 per cent of the poll in the London Assembly list election, compared with 8.4 per cent.
But Professor John Curtice, of Strathclyde University, believes it is too soon to write off Ukip entirely, pointing out that the jobs dispute speaks to the party’s anti-EU agenda.
“I am surprised that we are all assuming they will not do terribly well,” he said. “The small parties are still registering in the polls. European elections are Ukip’s forte.”

IF EUkip gets any seats will be as a result of the ignorance of the electorate as it is a provable fact that they have been an utter irrelevance in terms of ac hievement in the last 5 years – hence membership has collapsed, they are directionless, under funded and fractured – losing key members not bulk sleepers.
TO LEAVE THE EU
What is the exit and survival plan for these United Kingdoms to maximise on the many benefits of leaving The EU. It is the DUTY of our Politicians and Snivil Cervants to ensure the continuity, liberty and right to self determination of our peoples they have a DUTY to protect against crime and secure both our food and our border.
NONE of these DUTIES has a single British politician upheld for 40 years. They have drawn their incomes fraudulently and dishonesty.
Politicians are failing to tell the truth, but so are almost all wanabe Politicians, the MSM and Snivil Cervants.
The fact is that even if EVERY British MEP wanted change in The EU it would achieve NOTHING.Every single British Politician, of EVERY Party, elected since before we joined the EUropean Common Market, has promised to change The EU’s CAP – In 40 Years they have achieved absolutely NOTHING!
I wonder if you stopped 100 random people just howmany would know of Farage but more embarrassingly in terms of leadership ability the number who could name another EUkip senior member would say it all – A ONE MAN BAND and self obsessed. The aim of the FARAGISTA FAN CLUB is to get Farage elected but it does look much as if the party is irrelevant in the manner in which Farage has abused it with his handfull of cronies.
One really has to wonder if Ian Dale and Ben Russell are really so stupid as to believe the ‘puff’ that has been blown up their ass!
To try to put a value on OUR Freedom is as futile as floccipaucinihilipilification and as odious as the metissage of our societies, as we rummage in the ashes of our ancestors dreams, sacrifices and achievements, the flotsam of our hopes and the jetsam of our lives, consider the Country and Anglosphere which we leave our children and the future, with shame!

I SUGGEST – since there is clearly no political party of repute, advocating or campaigning for withdrawal of these United Kingdoms from the EU and restoration of our independent sovereign, democracy, with Justice & the right to self determination in a free country. Deny the self seeking & meaningless wanabe MEPs the Mythical Mandate for which they clamour. Diktat is imposed from The EU but Law should be made at Westminster, for our Country & our Peoples.
