“I WANT TO BECOME UKIP’S LEADER TO HELP MOVE OUR PARTY FORWARD, WE! TOGETHER! CAN ACHIEVE THIS DESPITE THE RECENT PROBLEMS IN THE PARTY” Serving on the NEC for 3 years has given me a good insight into the operation of a political party.

With the NEC’s decision yesterday to allow all eleven candidates to stand in this year’s leadership contest, we now have kick-off. We all knew already that this would be an extraordinary affair.

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 [...]

An Invitation to Hustings in London

August 11, 2017 // 5 Comments

[Ed: we give this invitation such prominence because of the notes attached by the organiser, in the hope that other hustings organisers will feel encouraged to adopt them as well. Members deserve to hear from their candidates ‘in the wild’ rather than ‘tamed’.] EVENT:  UKIP [...]

“Grassroots Hustings” in Newport, Wales, 3rd August 2017

August 5, 2017 // 21 Comments

This meeting, organised by the Newport (South Wales) branch, was focused on uncensored grassroot questions. Four candidates only made the trip across the Severn, so it was not an ‘official’ hustings. The format though was the one we’ve become accustomed to: initial three-minute statements [...]

Time To Slay a Few Myths

Nominations for the election of a new Leader of UKIP have now closed and we wait with baited breath for who will be the Party’s new Leader, the third one in a year, to be announced at the Party’s 2017 Conference in Torquay. The last twelve months or so have been difficult for the Party, [...]

Open Letter to the Members of the NEC

August 3, 2017 // 106 Comments

Dear members of the NEC – It is no secret that many UKIP members including this writer feel it is a matter of principle that Anne Marie Waters should be allowed to stand in the Leadership Election. Should she be blocked, on whatever pretext, I personally feel, and I don’t think I will [...]
