IT SEEMS THE CHILDREN HAVE ESCAPED THE NURSERY!
it was sad to see such a display of unprofessionalism from Farage’s praise singers when I noted young Harry Aldridge trying to get party brownie points at the expense of both our Country and our elected MEPs who were working, and spending their money in defence of Britain and liberty.
Here is the lads posting on UKIP Yoooof:
YI Chairman Criticises Two UKIP MEPs
Posted April 30th, 2011 by Harry AldridgeAs the elected Chairman of Young Independence I feel obliged to condemn the unacceptable actions of two UKIP MEPs. Mike Nattrass and Trevor Colman, by helping to fund an advert promoting a rival political candidate, have let down both themselves and more importantly UKIP members and activists up and down the country.
UKIP MEPs must be team players. They are elected on a Party ticket, the public did not vote for any one individual. It is simply not acceptable for MEPs, with an inflated view of their importance, to wield the power of their positions as if they have a direct individual mandate.
All UKIP European Election Candidates signed and agreed to the MEP Code of Conduct which committed them to “promote UKIP’s objectives as set out in the party constitution and manifestos”, “pool group funds” and “work as a team”. The actions of Trevor Colman and Mike Nattrass directly contravene the code of conduct. The promotion of a rival candidate’s campaign – a campaign that duplicates the efforts of similar non-partisan campaigns that are supported by UKIP – is not productive and nor is it fair on the UKIP activists whose time, money and shoe leather won them their seats.
The public want to see a productive political party that is mature and able to work towards the common cause. This is something I take seriously. Discord is tiresome and off-putting to young members and harms our ability to capitalise on the best levels of public support the party has ever seen.
Members from around the country have expressed their upset and disgust at today’s advert and the actions of these MEPs. It is the branches and activists who feel directly the impact of their decisions.
They are acting as individuals, not as team players. Quite plainly if they seek to continue to work for themselves and not for UKIP’s cause then I sincerely hope that they are deselected as candidates at the next available opportunity.
UKIP needs committed individuals as MEPs who can provide the British public with a united radical opposition that they can support. That is what I and others in YI and the wider Party will continue to work towards.
Chairman, Young Independence
One might have been a little more impressed had he not been weenie waggling in the most childish and un professional manner obviously way out of his depth and with UKIP lacking any credible leadership.
Perhaps, as he pretends to IT skills, he could have better serve the cause by updating some of the UKIP web sites – not least of which would be UKIP Yoooof where he will note it is sop out of date it implies he has usurped the position of chairman from the other member trying to lick his way to a career in politics without the flair or charisma it used to take!

Position in UKIP: YI Chairman
I’ve published a statement on this as YI Chairman. I’m afraid it needs to be said.
As the elected Chairman of Young Independence I feel obliged to condemn the unacceptable actions of two UKIP MEPs. Mike Nattrass and Trevor Colman, by helping to fund an advert promoting a rival political candidate, have let down both themselves and more importantly UKIP members and activists up and down the country.
***CUT as insecure repetition****
Shortly after we find he has not been noticed by enough people so he posts on the unofficial UKIP controlled Forum of Anthony Butcher’s under a pseudonym:

Let us ponder where next he may hope to be noticed in his anti British pro Farage sycophancy – How about the toe curlingly embarrassing Mrs. Dale’s Diary, ever willing to cosy up to Farage as noted in the past or will it be a last desperate attempt to discredit himself by posting his unprofessional boot lick on Stuart Parr’s dishonest little boot lick site – lies and all at bloggers4ukip
Is there no one in UKIP with the slightest political instinct – is there no self control, we know there is no leadership but this is just making a mockery of the party at the very worst time.
One can hardly be surprised that UKIP has managed to have LESS than 30 political offices in the public sector filled out of around 19,500 available.
Yes UKIP will do a little better in the upcoming local elections the ironic point being their gains will largely be at the expense of The Lib.Dims. this time and for the most bizarre of reasons – Lib.Dim. voters will be registering a protest vote against their two EU funded ex MEPs Nick Clegg & Huhne who have betrayed the Lib.Dim. electorate (one should not overlook the economic illiteracy of their trained theorist Vincent Cable who might well be advised to repair to his skill zone as a dance!).
The other area of protest is that The Lib.Dims. (there are only three aren’t there!) are completely out of step with the electorate on the issue of AV.
How ironic when Farage was elected to lead a largely Libertarian (in as far as UKIP understands the concept) Party espousing Leave-The-EU and promptly betrayed the electorate and the members by plunging into bed with a group of racist extremists, xenophobes, anti Jewish and violent anti homosexual foreign politicians in a sell out in return for money by espousing and supporting a pro EU membership stance and the Reforming ideals with more centralised EU controls as with Derek Clark MEP, Marta Andreasen (Spanish) MEP, Stuart Agnew (NFU) MEP, David Bannerman (anybody’s) MEP, Willian Dartmouth MEP etc.
You will note that UKIP will make gains at Lib.Dim. expense on the protest vote and the further irony is that Farage is as out of step over AV as is Nick Clegg all be it for different and dim reasons (I say dim as he has failed to convince his own party let alone the public at large).
Politics and political thought does rather seem to be beyond UKIP and as for the level of ill disciplined unprofessionalism that lets idiots like little Harry Aldrich and Michael Havers loose to so clearly damage the party it is staggering – that is not to gain say the irrefutable fact that within the squabbling ranks of UKIP there will be many too stupid to even realise their own stupidity.
If you are still in ANY doubt as to the unprofessional incompetence of UKIP just follow their MEPs around for a few days as the meeeeja do!
Alternatively try debate on a point they disagree with or even consider the rank stupidity of fielding a school girl to front for UKIP as Mayoral candidate in Leicester about which I note Barbara Booker had the last clear word as is so often the case, when she said:
Whose A-level studies obsessed her,
No time to prepare
Her campaign for Mayor . . .
To stand, what could have possessed her?
By the by here is the pro British Patriotic advertisement, which could well have been badged to UKIP if Farage had not betrayed the electorate and with the rump of UKIP that he has not over the years driven away leaped into bed with his extremist EFD Group:
Great isn’t it and to clear up a few points of confussion for those in UKIP who are clearly unaware of much going on around them:
01. Nigel Farage MEP is NOT a member of the EU Referendum Pledge Campaign run and managed by James Pryor and Bridget Rowe for the members and primary patron Tony Blackwell and Jon Gaunt is the media spokesman. Unlike UKIP the peoples pledge for an EU Referendum campaign IS NOT run by or for the benefit of politicians as it was they who got us into this mess as members of The EU.
02. Paul Nuttall was invited to assist but does seem to be making as much noise as a giraffe – possibly controlled by Farage!
03. The Petition for an EU Referendum is a separate entity founded and launched by Nikki Sinclaire at her own expense at Easter last year though increasingly active from September.
04. Dan Hannan’s ‘Judas Goat’ operation was set up when he was blocked from controlling the EU Pledge – an idea he then tried to destroy by diluting it for personal gain. He was encouraged by various socialist extremists to try to embarrass The Tory initiative.
05. Mike Nattrass & Trevor Colman now that they are liberated from the odious Pan EU Political EFD Group have opted to act in the interest of Britain and help Nikki Sinclaire promote The Petition for an IN/OUT EUreferendum.
06. The Petition for an IN/OUT EUreferendum and The EU Referendum Pledge Campaign are working in co-operation for the Patriotic benefit of these United Kingdoms.
07. IF YOU are a genuine Patriot and wish to help liberate these United Kingdoms from the thrall of vassal status in The EU may I suggest find out more and how YOU can help CLICK HERE
Since it is clear UKIP have no ability to professionalise and are clearly squabbling like ferrets in a sack as they jokey for positions at the troughs on the gravy train and sice clearly they have no sign of a competent leader – though to be fair Nigel Farage is at most times a consumate performer, without the guidance he so clearly needs and firm leadership from a grown up he will sadly continue to be divisive driving out anyone of competence who he fears might rival him and for ever piling dung ever higher to try to give credibitlity to his strutting and crowing.
That ain’t leadership and as a result of the dross gathered around Farage the party is clearly unfit for purpose.
Yes as a part it will survive as it is of so little long term consequence and of such great value to both The Tories and The EU no one will bother to sink it – any effort to expose the corruption is met with the most unprofessional howls from those feeding on that corruption in one way or another!
It is hard to find reason to disagree with this comment from The Blogosphere:
I believe NF is simply astute – he knows what is best for him and is the enemy within. Whether UKIP is managed through NF by Thatcherites within the Tory Party or NF had chosen, personally, not to be successful in domestic politics because he did not want the Tories to fail at GEs matters not a jot – because the outcome is the same.
The bottom line is that UKIP is not like other political parties in the sense that others simply want to be as successful as possible, irrespective of the impact on other parties. Once the Tory dimension is acknowledged, at any time some apparently irrational decision might be made by NF which will set the Party back or in a different direction.
These will be unfathomable to serious members, simply because they not aware of the details of this Tory influence – a recipe for continuous and continuing frustration for serious and loyal members.
Unlike the childish self serving bottom wiping by Harry Aldridge that so palpably smacks of a self important child
