Let us suppose UKIP has a brilliant result on 22 May and wins 35 MEPs, more than Labour, more than the Tories and mre than the Lib Dems who may only have 5 or so MEPs left. Then Farage has to get into bed with parties from other EU countries. That's the way the clever Eurocrats have set things up to turn us all, even NF, to be good citizens of the EU. How do they do that. Easy peasy , they bribe our political elite with our own money. If you join a pan national group you get more money and for the national party leaders its a huge amount. Its a system deliberately set up to reward the national political elites for obeying the Eurocrats in the EU commission. It works brilliantly.
So which way will NF go? He will follow the money, that is money for Nigel and the cabal. That will bring UKIP into political alliance with some very unsavoury right wing mid European groupings like Liga Nord, Free Finns etc. The LibLab UK media will have a field day hanging UKIP out to dry. Like last time Farage's MEP army will start to desert from day one and his new professional party will revert to its previous shambles just in time for the June 2015 General Election in which UKIP will win nil seats. Farage will keep his word and resign, write his memoirs and enjoy his huge EU pension. All of us who worked for UKIP to get us out of the EU will have been well and truely shafted. UKIP will stagger on but its chance to achieve something fo us in the UK will have gone pissed away by Farage and the cabal in the restaurants and flesh pots of Brussels.
