Hi,

they may well be looking pleased with themselves

but I suspect there are some fairly glum faces amongst Ukip’s remaining intelligent members, faced with the reality that however ill equipped they have not only lost their only passably competent leader and now their only major backer.

On the 02-Mar-2017 I published the fact that Ukip was in trouble as they had lost backers  see CLICK HERE and were failing to raise money to function, particularly now that Farage holds the Brussels purse strings as leader of the group.

This latest news of Arron Banks must give this fractured party pause for thought as to whether it has any meaningfull future, with a discreditted Walter Mitty fantasist as their current make believe leader and only a few MEPs actually pulling in the same direction, MEPs with a spectacular track record of failing to contribute financially to the cause except in order to try to buy themselves selection, election or re-election.

 

Arron Banks says he’s been suspended from UKIP.

 
 
 
 

 

 

 Today in politics: Arron Banks gets publicity for being ‘kicked out’ of UKIP. Last month: Paul Nuttall tells everyone Banks isn’t a member.

So owner has his membership of his own bought ‘n’ paid for Party suspended. That’s so totally 🙂 Cheers !!

Realistically what hope have they got, when they clearly lack one wit of political nouse between them and with a track record best known for lies, distortions and fantasy as they squabble like ferrets in a sack!

Top Ukip backer Arron Banks to focus on new political movement

Ukip’s biggest financial backer Arron Banks has announced he will now concentrate on a new political movement after claiming his membership of the party was suspended.

Insurance tycoon Mr Banks, who funded the Leave.EU campaign in last year’s Brexit referendum, gave £1 million to Ukip ahead of the 2015 general election.

He has been involved in a public spat with the party’s only MP Douglas Carswell and has been critical of the party’s leader Paul Nuttall.

Mr Banks said his membership had lapsed and when he tried to reapply he was told he was suspended until an appearance before the party’s ruling national executive committee (NEC).

But Ukip dismissed the idea he could have been suspended, as he was no longer a member of the party.

Mr Banks suggested on Twitter that the move was “apparently for saying current leadership couldn’t knock the skin off a rice pudding” and he has also compared the way the party is run to a squash club.

His row with Mr Carswell, which included suggesting he could stand against the Clacton MP by using a recall petition to trigger a by-election, has also riled elements in the party.

Mr Banks said his membership had lapsed and when he tried to reapply he was told he was suspended until an appearance before the party’s ruling national executive committee (NEC).

But Ukip said he chose not to renew his membership despite reminders to do so.

Mr Banks has hinted at setting up a new political movement, building on Leave.EU, to “drain the swamp” of Westminster politics.

A Ukip spokesman said: “We are aware that Mr Banks has suggested on Twitter this morning that he has had his party membership suspended.

“Mr Banks was notified last year that his membership was due for renewal at the start of October but chose not to renew, despite reminders. With this his membership expired on January 1 2017.

“It would not be possible to suspend Mr Banks from something of which he is not a member.”

To consider another viewpoint on the same news but from another media source read on:

UKIP denies donor Arron Banks’ suspension claim

The UK Independence Party has rejected claims by one of its biggest donors that he has been suspended from the party membership.

Arron Banks, who funded the Leave EU campaign in last year’s EU referendum, made the allegation via Twitter.

He said the move was “apparently” in response to him saying the party’s current leadership “couldn’t knock the skin off a rice pudding”.

But a spokesman said his membership had lapsed earlier this year.

Colourful opponents

Mr Banks, who gave £1m to the party ahead of the 2015 general election, has been sceptical about the leadership of Paul Nuttall and has recently spoken of founding a new political movement to “drain the swamp” of Westminster politics.

He also suggested he could stand against Douglas Carswell, UKIP’s only MP, by using a recall petition to trigger a by-election in his Clacton constituency.

But Mr Carswell played down the importance of Mr Banks’ announcement, telling the BBC: “It’s always very sad when one of UKIP’s 40,000 members leaves the party for whatever reason.”

Referencing previous claims that he had prevented former UKIP leader Nigel Farage from being knighted, Mr Carswell added: “I have no more say in NEC decisions at UKIP than I do in who gets a knighthood.”

On Mr Banks’ suggestion that he could stand against Mr Carswell in Clacton at the next general election, the MP said: “Each time I’ve stood there’ve been some wonderfully colourful characters on the ballot paper.

“I even had a chap who changed his name by deed poll to Lord Ha Ha Woof Woof. I’m sure at the next election there’ll be some colourful characters too – the more the merrier.”

Apology to squash clubs

But in a statement, Mr Banks claimed UKIP had “somehow managed to allow my membership to lapse this year despite having given considerably more than the annual membership fee over the past 12 months”.

“On reapplying I was told my membership was suspended pending my appearance at a NEC meeting,” he said.

“Apparently, my comments about the party being run like a squash club committee and Mr Carswell have not gone down well.

“I now realise I was being unfair to squash clubs all over the UK and I apologise to them.

“We will now be concentrating on our new movement.”

However, a UKIP spokesman said Mr Banks was notified last year that his membership was due for renewal at the start of October but he “chose not to renew despite reminders”.

“With this his membership expired on 1st January 2017,” the spokesman said. “It would not be possible to suspend Mr Banks from something of which he is not a member.”
