I have lost count of the number of fruit cake and loony UKIP expulsion purges Farage has ordered. All I know is that none have worked and that I, a staunch supporter in public and private of UKIP policy and was purged and the fruitcakes and loonies kept. Del and David suffered the same fate. Our crime was to stand up to Farage on issues of party governance.
Farage welcomes with open arms Tory party misfits like Mr Silvester, after all Farage is one himself. I have repeatedly urged him to be cautitious of these people, Bannerman and now Silvester and Andreasen who has now gone back to the Tories.
Faage rivals Joe Stalin in the number of his purges! The people who should be purged are the Cabal.
More worrying is the shenanigans on the selection of a candidate to fight the forthcoming Wythenshawe and Sale by-election reported by Mandrake in Friday's Telegraph. The local party chairman has been bannned by UKIP from organising a candidate selection meeting Comrade Nuttall is rumoured to be putting his own name forward or his close friend Louise Bours. There are several branch resignations as a result of this national takeover. Nuttall was of course not the first choice of UKIP NW on the MEP slate. THe first choice candidate, Beaman stood down in after being selected as number one. Jigggery pokery with UKIP candidates is no new thing.
Comrade Nuttall is what is known in Manc as a scouse scally. The don't like Scousers in Manc and the UK public are not generally appreciative of a Scouse accent. They identify it with hard left activists like Degsy Hatton. Comrade Nuttall should perhaps take a few elocution lessons and try to sound like Nadine Dorries MP who also comes from Liverpool. Its unpleasant but that is how politics works. Even the divine Margaret needed a few elocution less to succeed. If Henry Higgins is reading this will he please contact N Farage asap.
The are lots more Mr Silvesters standing as UKIP candidates and I look forward to reading their utterances in the national press. I hear that TV are commissioning investigations into UKIP's lack of governance. Lord Rennard and the Lib Dems have given them the smell of blood.
