The Leadership Contest

September 12, 2017 // 36 Comments

The leadership contest is in its last throws, “thank goodness”, I can hear you all say. Yes, it has been a lengthy process, some would say ridiculously too long. Most commentators have this as a two horse race between Anne-Marie Waters and John Rees-Evans. I declare now that as the campaign [...]

UKIP United

September 6, 2017 // 31 Comments

Well tomorrow and throughout the next few days the ballots will land on the doormats of the Ukip members. I cannot stress how important their decision will be. This party is on the brink, make no mistake. All the candidates have worked tirelessly over the last eight weeks or so. They all want what [...]

UKIP Leadership Contest – a Speech

July 10, 2017 // 32 Comments

UKIP, as we know, is sadly in disarray. There is no discipline within the party, officers of the party have descended into language not befitting the standing they have. Many members take to social media with an abandon that knows no boundaries, the conversation is of the lowest standard. Many [...]

Ben Walker – leadership campaign

July 3, 2017 // 35 Comments

Colleagues, we have been here before, four times in a year. Since that glorious day, June 23rd we have, as a political party, had our ‘annus horribilis’ and the jury is out as to whether we can survive it. We have to subject ourselves yet again to the gut wrenching process of choosing a [...]

Hidden in plain sight – the attempted transfer of power

June 28, 2017 // 19 Comments

Imagine you are the Government. You have been for seven years, even given a change of leader and a disastrous referendum whereby you attempted to swat away an annoying little man called Farage who was just simply beating you. You are enjoying a clear percentage point lead over the official [...]

Leadership Election

June 23, 2017 // 36 Comments

I am not one to dive into something without giving the matter due consideration. I do not make major decisions lightly. The pathway that Ukip is potentially taking greatly disturbs me. We are in danger of disappearing which would give the political commentators the victory they have worked so hard [...]

General Election – play dirty and we can do very well

April 26, 2017 // 48 Comments

I can still remember the early hours of the 24th June last year when the returning officer for my area called myself and the remainer designated person over. He showed us the written result and the feeling of relief and euphoria that we had voted to leave by the same eventual percentage that the [...]

Labour Party the True Racists

April 11, 2017 // 5 Comments

What is it about the labour party and its obvious anti-Semitism. Where did it come from and much more importantly where is it going. It is ever to the fore in both their rhetoric and because certain high profile members insist on keeping it to the fore of the news and the mainstream media. Last [...]

Torquay – Who and why?

March 30, 2017 // 23 Comments

I am loath to write anything negative about the party at the moment, I really am. I have, as many of my fellow kippers have, a renewed sense of purpose, I am excited, both on the back of the historical day yesterday when Article 50 was enacted, together with the promise of re-branding, new [...]

PFI – the biggest con trick ever

March 29, 2017 // 2 Comments

PFI (Private Finance Initiative) has to be the biggest con in history, they represent without doubt the worst of fiscal management and are the biggest deception on the British people in history. A big claim yes, but nonetheless any plain thinking straight talking person has to arrive at the same [...]
