February 21, 2018 // 9 Comments

This article was first published at Kipper Central and is republished with kind permission. I am extremely pleased with the NEC’s decision to appoint Gerard Batten as our interim leader, but before I talk about the future, I would like to address the recent events that we have gone through as a [...]

A Letter from a Previous UKIP Member

February 20, 2018 // 117 Comments

Dear Readers, As a previous member of UKIP, I am appalled at the current state and standing of the party.  I joined UKIP because I believed in its message that Britain would thrive outside the European  Union.  I also believed that UKIP would produce policies that would enable Britain to shake [...]

Today’s [Feb 16th 2018] Daily Telegraph carried an article by Nigel Farage MEP about tomorrow’s EGM in Birmingham and the new Constitution for UKIP proposed by Henry Bolton. Nigel has come out in support of Mr Bolton and gives his reasons why.   It has been said many times, but I will say [...]

MEPless and what to do about the NEC? – Part II

February 16, 2018 // 9 Comments

Ed~This is the second part of a two-part article. The first part was published on Wednesday and can be found here on UKIPDaily.
