Last week I wrote how one Sharon Bonici had been lined up by Farage as chair of the supranational EFD party. Ms Bonici, a Maltese lady is currently working for Godfrey Bloom the UKIP MEP and pot plant fancier. Junius broke the story today that Bloom has signed up to the EFD, the first UKIP MEP to do so. Its a worse betrayal than Clarke signing us up to subsidiarity. Signing means you support the EU aims for a European state.
Last month at Torquay UKIP members voted for a motion requiring a vote of all members before any UKIP MEP signed up to a pan-European party. Farage was furious and stated it would cost him a million Euros.
Well there we have it in a nutshell. When the wishes of the party in the country conflict with the EU's Euros its a no brainer for some of our UKIP MEPs, take the money and forget the members wishes. Just like the ConDem coalition! I am confident Farage will soon sign up once the votes are in for the leadership election and I reckon it will happen by Halloween. Principle or Euros?
Talking of Farage I switched on the TV at 12:00 and their he was on the Daily Politics show wearing his Arthur Daley velvet collared overcoat looking every inch the spiv. The opinion of the political gurus on the show was that Nigel was quite wonderful but I think they meant he was a godsend for the LibLabCon.
Meanwhile the Bloom supported EU continues to rob our children of their birthright. The DT has a small story headlined, 'British students hit as EU entries rise'. UCAS reports UK home admissions fell by 0.2% from last year while EU admissions rose by 7.2%. Not quit the whole story as EU admissions are concentrated at the Oxbridge end of the spectrum. There are not many EU students on media studies at Midsommer University, Chancellor DCI Barnaby.
