The Bolton Saga: Winners and Losers

February 24, 2018 // 0 Comments

As the dust settles on the Bolton saga, as it might be known to future generations, I thought it would be interesting to take a look at the winners and losers that have inevitably emerged. Just a personal point of view; others are available! I’m going to start with the losers first, as I always [...]

Don’t fall for Bolton’s attempted diversion tactics: BIN‘im!

February 17, 2018 // 1 Comment

Mr Bolton’s recent long email was a not very subtle attempt to try to overwhelm people with information and distract from the real issue. His proposed Constitution revision is another tactic to try to further muddy the EGM waters and should be being dismissed in one word: unacceptable. The [...]

Nigel Farage, Henry Bolton and the proposed UKIP Constitution

February 16, 2018 // 19 Comments

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. I propose that any party officer working on areas covered by NEC functions report to the NEC member concerned, not the party chairmen or the leader. In this way, the NEC [...]

A Yeoman’s Miscellany

February 15, 2018 // 49 Comments

UKIP Daily readers and callers to Lexdrum House, are a self-selecting group. As any pollster will tell you, such a sample is an unreliable guide as to how an electorate will vote. While it is encouraging to see support on UKIP Daily (and its ally Kipper Central) for getting rid of Bolton we cannot [...]

Henry Bolton’s proposed Constitutional ‘reform’

February 14, 2018 // 61 Comments

Steve Crowther writes on behalf of the NEC On February 13th 2018, the Leader has published an attractively-presented new Draft Constitution, which has been sent out to all members for whom the party has email addresses. I should point out that this draft and ‘consultation’ has not been [...]

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

February 13, 2018 // 3 Comments

In recent time our spokesmen have tended to be drawn from the ranks of our MEPs. MEPs, funded by European tax payers, have resources, particularly of time, to pursue the party’s ends. It made a certain sense in the pre-referendum era for our spokespeople to be MEPs. The NEC, by contrast, has been [...]

STATEMENT BY THE UKIP PEERS

February 13, 2018 // 26 Comments

We have received permission to publish this statement by our UKIP members in the House of Lords, Lord Malcolm Pearson of Rannoch, Lord David Stevens of Ludgate and Lord David Willoughby de Broke. Their statement was first sent to the NEC. It is published jointly by Kipper Central and UKIP Daily. [...]

ON BALANCE ….

February 13, 2018 // 40 Comments

There are party members who think Henry Bolton should stay as leader. The reasons given, at least through UKIP Daily, do not amount to a very convincing case. The case for him staying appears to be a belief in a conspiracy by the NEC and shadowy others to frustrate Henry’s reforms, said to be [...]

About that EGM …

February 12, 2018 // 53 Comments

In five days we members will cast our votes at the EGM. If you haven’t done so – there is still time to register. Complacency and thinking that other members will do ‘the right thing’ may mean that the vote endorsing the NEC could be lost by default. We’ve heard rumours from across [...]
