UKIP Leadership Hustings – a personal view by Gerald Gravett I attended the Barking and Dagenham ‘Public Meeting’ back on the 30th July when five of the leadership candidates made an early appearance in their electioneering campaign (watch here and here) Since then, I have been involved with [...]

It Has to be Bolton

September 5, 2017 // 55 Comments

After much consideration and after watching as many hustings and self-promotional videos as time allows, I’m going to give the reason why I’m backing Bolton. UKIP is in a battle for its existence. If it makes a mistake now, the party is finished. The money has run out, the members are not [...]

August 19, 2017 // 13 Comments

Yes, this does refer to Paul Foyster’s list (see “Letters to the Editor”) which he apparently intends to forward to our postulant hustings audience, to fire at whoever of the eleven leadership candidates turn up in their area. I read through his script and I started making mental [...]

UKIP Leadership: Hustings are a Must!

August 12, 2017 // 56 Comments

Eleven candidates. Eleven!! I must admit, when the confirmed applicants for the UKIP leadership post finally appeared in an email yesterday evening, I briefly thought Steve Crowther and Piers Wauchope had accidentally inserted the names of a UKIP charity football team by mistake! In truth, it was a [...]
