Though many of us who have supported the party for years may wish otherwise – the filth, parasites and low lifes that have gathered around the party like Mick McGough, Malcolm Wood, Michael Heavers, Peter Reeve, Lisa Duffy, Steve Ison, Stuart Parr, Lisa Duffy, Derek Clark, Stuart Gulleford, Godfrey Bloom, Marta Andreasen, Steve Crowther, Ray Finch, John Moran, Anabelle Fuller, Mark Croucher, Paul Nuttall, William Dartmouth, Gawain Towler and many more – so befoul the party as not only to make it unfit for purpose but clearly it would seem beyond salvation!
When did UKIP last display a strategy, vision, training, tactics or any vestige of competence in any field or other than ‘Band Waggon jumping’ any sign of leadership and clarity to Leave-The-EU, it became impressed with its own idiotic rhetoric and a belief that it has a Political role beyond Leave-The-EU – self delluded intellectual pygmies of no political nouse!
I found the summary of UKIP and the mess it is in, by Dr. Richards North one time Research Director of UKIP and a friend of many years standing, to be as ever both sound and readable – I have been a regular reader of Richard’s blog since it started and in very regular contact for many years.
Enjoy or more to the point weep at the the betrayal; if you were a supporter of the principles, aims and values that UKIP once had, before our very lifeboat, to lead these United Kingdoms to Leave-The-EU, was seized by the self servers, self enrichers, liars, cheats, frauds and the low life scum that floated to the support of the clique that had befouled it to form its corrupt claque.
The death of UKIP Posted by Richard Thursday, May 26, 2011
Actually, it died a long time ago – as a worthwhile campaigning tool. The momentum kept it going, but it no longer achieves anything of value, while its overall effect is to damage the cause.
Such has long been my conclusion, but this is now confirmed in spades by sight of David Campbell-Bannerman’s (DCB) more detailed reasons for leaving UKIP, following his desertion to the Tories. I have no time whatsoever for the man but, nevertheless, some of what he writes – and the frustrations he experienced – I recognise. His words bring back vividly the utter impossibility of working in a political party dominated by the destructive and dangerous Nigel Farage.
First of DCB’s problems is that, on joining the party, he perceived there to be a “lack of a proper plan and objective”, and indeed it is self-evident that this is the case. But it was also the case in 1999, when the electors first sent UKIP MEPs to the EU Parliament. There were only three, of which Farage was one, and with it came funds and staff – myself as the senior British member on the group staff.
