This has always been Farage's top priority to maintain absolute control of his UKIP cult. No matter that the UK establishment are right now hijacking the Leave campaign Nigel's personal interests come first now and always. I have lived with this for over 10 years and watched Farage fail to build up UKIP as a credible Westminster parliamentary force. This is crucial as only Westminster can repeal the 1973 European Communities Act that binds us to the EU. UKIP needs MPs. They have one, Carswell and Farage is trying to get rid of him. Unbelievable.
May is the establishment candidate for leader. She is supported by Ken Clarke and Heseltine rabid Europhiles for many years, careerist Hancock and his odious boss Osborne. May is a coward. She cowered in the Home Office during the Referendum campaign to preserve her own skin and when the contest is over pops up to claim the spoils. She is an opportunist who will never take us out of the EU. Safe pair of hands is establishment speak for one of us who will do what she is told. How can a minister who was on the losing side in the Referendum lead a Brexit government. Cameron recognised this was impossible, is May that stupid?
We need a Brexit candidate to oppose her, Fox, Gove or Leadsom. They all fought hard in the Referendum and are worthy of our support but we have to come down to the one best Brexit candidate asap or the Referendum victory will be swept away by the establishment. As Dan Hanaan tweeted its the working class against the smirking class.
