Damn, had no intention of blogging this evening but this Diane James thing came up and someone here has to make some comment.
# Establishment smear tactics would have bounced off, had the party not let the dividers in. People with an anti-Ukip agenda are on the inside, leaking info, spreading bad news, rigging procedures and causing distrust. Soon it will be only them left, and Ukip will mean nothing to nobody.
On a lighter note, I encourage any Ukippers to go and help the by-election in Sleaford, Lincolnshire any time in the next two weeks. I’ll be going. The candidate for UKIP is Victoria Ayling and she is entirely clued up about Nuttall/Evans/Carswell/Hamilton etc and is very strong-willed. It will be Tory vs UKIP and the Tory is a closet Remainer in a 61% Leave constituency.
# I really don’t know what’s up with UKIP. There is obviously a lot of poison that needs draining. This does not help the people of the UK who have been ill served by the mainstream parties.
Think what we’ve got here is quite a few open, honest and principled people [the 3.8 million], plus a bunch of establishment wormtongues close to HQ who want to wreck the party.
That Diane James turned out to be so spineless, that Woolfe turned out to be so bizarre, e.g. that altercation plus the putting in of the papers late, that Nuttall disappointed after being loyal for so long, that Nigel is off on his Trump jollies and eyeing a place in Westminster or a gong – none of this is good at a time when May, the sly cow, knows UKIP are now toothless and can prevaricate with impunity over her “interim” Brexit, safe in the knowledge that Carswell and Evans are in there doing their worst.
And one other thing:
The country is not impressed – well, 52% of us anyway.
