Is UKIP Facing a Perfect Storm’?

March 18, 2017 // 25 Comments

23rd June 2016 will be a date long remembered in British history – the date that the British people clearly and unequivocally voted to break away from the shackles of the shambolic, undemocratic, corrupt power bloc that the EU had become, and re-establish their country as an independent and [...]

Nigel could stand for Parliament again

March 12, 2017 // 7 Comments

Nigel Farage has told Andrew Neil’s Daily Politics show that he would ‘probably’ stand for UKIP if the Tories’ dirty tricks during the General Election forced a by-election in South Thanet. During today’s interview, Neil said that if electoral fraud were ‘substantial’ enough to [...]

Tactical Voting

March 7, 2017 // 17 Comments

Background I spent a month in the north of the UK late last year; a place that I had not visited for maybe 10 years. The invasion was well advanced before but I was not prepared for almost every local shop being taken over by them, interspersed with the occasional eastern European one. Even the [...]

The UKIP Future

March 3, 2017 // 12 Comments

Ed – This is 2nd in a series. You can find the 1st part here. It is clear that a very large segment of voters want to be led by a new breed of politician and not just the same old parties categorised as from the left or right. First and foremost they want to be represented by someone who [...]

The Image of UKIP

During the Sleaford and North Hykeham by-election, a constituency not very far from us here in Rutland, I saw a picture on social media taken at one of the Public Meetings. According to a large Election poster behind the Speakers, the constituency that UKIP was trying to get Victoria Ayling [...]

Despite Brexit

February 26, 2017 // 5 Comments

“Despite Brexit” is a term all too often heard on mainstream media. “Despite Brexit” economic growth is up, “despite Brexit” unemployment is falling. But despite Brexit, we didn’t win Stoke on Trent Central, the Brexit capital of the UK. It’s a tough defeat to take, and let’s be [...]

Some Thoughts on the Results in Stoke-on-Trent

February 25, 2017 // 15 Comments

I agree with the main thrust of the Editorial on Friday 24th February, that we were given grossly unfair treatment/coverage by the MSM, but that this was entirely to be expected and should not have been assisted by unforced errors on UKIP’s part. For example: The business about declaring the [...]

Time to grow up!

February 25, 2017 // 43 Comments

It is time for this party to grow up and have a common sense adult conversation. The debacle at Stoke needs some serious examination. No, this is not a hatchet job born from disillusionment. It is a serious forensic examination of our party, our future and how we need to change. It is quite clear [...]

Crocodile tears

February 24, 2017 // 33 Comments

I am feeling sorry for myself this morning, having watched the booking odds over the last week changed from UKIP lead to Labour lead predicted the result at Stoke.  I am also feeling sorry for UKIP because our leader failed the first rule of politics, to be squeaky clean. I feel sorry for Stoke on [...]
