    I, too, strongly supported UKIP from the time I first returned to the UK after 30 years working overseas and found the horror that my country had become. I never became acquainted with the personnel involved although it was hard to avoid Nigel who seemed to say the right things. It’s difficult for me to criticise or comment on any of the personnel as I have paid far less attention to what has been said about them in the media because, I assumed, the media was very anti. I would be very sad if the UKIP message were to be lost due to a disenchantment with its leader and I sincerely hope that common sense will prevail.
    Incidentally, I wouldn’t say that the last election was quite a failure with nearly 4 million people voting for the party!

      Everyone was stitched up by the Tories in 2015 – power over principle – there were some things going on which still haven’t got the publicity they need. 3.8m votes was not shoddy but the unresignation is where the rot set in.

      I was and still am to a point one of the pro-Nigel people apart from his stupid “people’s army” idea – as if free thinkers were ever going to support a “beloved leader” thing. I wrote to and spoke to UKIP about that idea costing him heaps of votes.

      However, he’s lost most of the country IMHO, since the unresignation and he’d be better, in the eyes of the nation, not seeking personal office but remaining as the party’s elder statesman – he can still speak superbly agin the pollies.

      Whether that’s so or not, the point is that he is always going to be stitched up if he tries for Westminster. If he clings on to the leadership without a fair vote, he will also be moved aside in a putsch. People also don’t like his henchman Raheem Kassam.

      If he comes back as leader, it has to be through a free vote.

    Sharpen your swords gentlemen. There is worse to come. Put not your faith in men (be they Tory or Nigels) but in God and a sharp edge.

    Well for all his faults do we really have anyone other than Farage to speak for us, rally us, lead us, however you want to put it.

    As the mob at the tunnel mass and our PM utters the same meaningless drivel over the misleading immigration figures, the previously noisy alleged eurosceptics are noticeable only by their complete silence.
    The yes vote is almost in the bag, who else apart from Farage, or Peter Hitchens, has uttered a single sensible comment about the whole EU/migration calamity we find ourselves in.

    We had a brainwashed public phoning into the jeremy whine show (another presenter doing the biz) during the week complaining about the immigration figures (600k the true figure of imports)…the irony that they had and blew the chance to do something in May about our country before it is lost didn’t register, and no one from al-beeb was going to make such a horrid suggestion that these turkeys actually voted for their own Christmas once again, instead of growing a pair and just for once in their miserable lives taking the opportunity to say no.

    There is no one can hold a candle to Farage and i believe you do the man a disservice by attacking him for the mistakes he might have made post the massive disappointment of the election results…whatever the reasons for those results might be i’m not surprised Farage chucked it in in sheer frustration…but he’s a far better man than me, in his shoes i’ve have told the country to go to hell (it is and it will) and left them to their well deserved fate, but he’s made of stronger stuff and bounced back.

    The real question is, does our electorate deserve Farage, truly i am coming to the conclusion they do not, they have earned with interest the sum total of what they have voted for for the past 30 years and will again next year or the one after when they vote to stay in the EU.

    I despair.
