I went up to London on Friday to attend Nikki's we want a referendum meeeting. As I got messed around by SW Trains I decided to go by bus so I arrived around 12:30. Bannerman was still hanging around but I am glad I did not have to speak to him. I was told Towler, UKIP's press officer. and McGough had turned up and been refused admittance. Also that John Moran another Faragista had gained admittance but he was spotted and also ejected. What serious political party sends its representatives to another party's event? None! But for UKIP, wedded to dirty tricks, its par for the course.
There were around 70 attendees. I wish this new party it well. Unlike UKIP it is trying to do something.
The questions from the floor were clearly not selected and managed as at UKIP meetings but they showed the honesty of the attendees. Politically they are a bit naive but who wants more professional politicians?
There will a referendum but when and what will be the question. The Nikki idea of a Royal Commission is also naive. Who chooses the chairman and members of a Royal Commission? The PM who will ensure it is packed with the great and good Europhiles. Think again Nikki.
