Was the UKIP election rigged?

… or was it all shipshape and Bristol fashion? How much is there in this? It’s doing the rounds just now:

Is the NEC who did for Nigel and let Carswell/Evans run rampant a fine group of upstanding people … or what has been alleged?

Is it all about policies … or about the power of the cabal?

    I never received any voting papers, so I didn’t get to vote. I wonder how many other members were also left out. I’d probably have voted for Anne Marie Waters so my vote by itself wouldn’t have changed the result but if those likely to vote for her had been filtered out then maybe she’d have won.

    What are the odds for either?

      With a history of those paymasters, Henry looks very much like a plant, and I don’t mean a geranium.

        You maybe right, almost certainly MI5, served as a policeman, served EU and UN Flags, he is an establishment figure whatever way you look at him, will say things about Islam as a sop to AMW supporters. The Police hate and persecute Tommy Robinson who a friend of AMW. Time will tell.

    UKIP can revive and Brexit, just one giant reason just one word,,, “SPAIN”,,, it is still fascist at heart, just like their fascist brothers running the EU where voting means jackshit. our turn to escape fascism.

      Spain is proving a useful example of just how thin the veneer of apparent democracy is there and in the EU – the tougher the Spanish Government gets with the Catalans and the more the EU condones it, the better the example becomes.
      Tough on the Catalans perhaps, but they could be doing us all a favour in the longer term – I’ll go back to Barcelona once it’s free.

    It wuz the Russians wot dun the Ukip election, after all, Bolton’s wife is a Russki.

    That said, having a Russian wife, Bolton is hardly an elite plant. Unless she’s a plant too.

    Talking of plants, in comparison to the vegetables in the LibLabCon front benches, I think Bolton’s background experience puts him miles ahead of anything I have seen for years.

    I don’t think the image proves anything – it could be deliberately spoiled ballots, people adding “none of the above” and so on.

    I’ve shared my own thoughts about the result here:
