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 [...]

Looking back – looking forward: an analysis, Part 2

July 3, 2017 // 5 Comments

[We published Part One here] So, is there a vacancy to be filled in British politics?  Would a large enough number of voters want to be able to consider voting for a party that is: committed to Brexit; have realistic sensible economic policies that will encourage business; committed to reduce [...]

UKIP Local Elections – the Post-Mortem

May 6, 2017 // 60 Comments

The results are in. One seat gained, one held, the rest: lost. The MSM are gleefully reporting on the wipe-out of UKIP, aided and abetted by “UKIP’s Biggest Donor”, Arron Banks, who talks about a car-crash and that UKIP has ‘harmed the legacy of Nigel Farage’. Meanwhile, Suzanne Evans in [...]

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 [...]

Letters to the Editor – Saturday 18th March 2017

March 18, 2017 // 10 Comments

Today’s first letter, picking up on the debates on UKIP Daily in the past days and weeks, is not just a must-read but also a definite appeal to action. It is by our contributor and reader ‘Stout Yeoman’: Sir, I am given to believe by sources close to the top that Banks rattled them (bigly [...]

What is UKIP?

March 16, 2017 // 31 Comments

We all knew, or thought we knew, what UKIP was in the run up to the referendum; we didn’t need concern ourselves with the detail as the objective was sufficient. It had an outspoken and charismatic leader known by everyone in the land. Sadly that leader abdicated before the job was finished, [...]

A Word on Carswell

March 3, 2017 // 66 Comments

Another standoff between Nigel and Carswell. For a time, I thought Nigel might be preparing to leave UKIP, that his pride would force him to, having publicly declared Carswell must go. A UKIP with Carswell still in and Nigel out would not be viable. I felt that the legal niceties were irrelevant to [...]

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 [...]

Letters to the Editor – Thursday 23rd February 2017

February 23, 2017 // 13 Comments

Our first letter is from our reader and contributor Alan Piper. While voters go to the polls today, the letter addresses what is important for the future of UKIP: Sir, It’s Time for UKIP (to get its act together)! Yes, as a campaign slogan, you can read “It’s Time for UKIP” [...]

On Direct Democracy

January 5, 2017 // 10 Comments

In 1647 the New Model Army held its famous Putney Debates to decide the future of the revolution for which the army had fought so hard. Now in 2017, at a time almost as momentous if not of actual warfare, we hear there are to be UKIP policy discussions at Derby in which members will be invited to [...]
