Party Applications to form PEPPs 30-Sep-2011

CONSIDER AESOP The Lion & The Fox:

The EU was failing and was corrupt. So they pretended to be handing out money, which was just a ruse to make the greedy come to help progress their scam, but the strings attached were binding if hard to see.
The EUroRealists also came to see the offer, but didn't join a PEPP wishing to deal with The EU from outside its political clutches.
The EU asked the EUroRealists why they didn't come in as it was so lavishly rewarded and comfortable living on bribes.
The EUroRealists replied, 'Because we can see the tracks of those going in, but they are destroyed and there are no tracks showing they survived.'

Other people's lives are lessons in how we can avoid danger: it is easy to enter the house of a powerful man, but once you are inside, it may already be too late to get out.

sadly yes , by those same donkeys who now pay homage to the EU  ! all the more reason to get out .
Oh, I will continue to fight.  I am just no longer convinced that UKIP is the only way, especially if the vote on PEPPs goes the wrong way.
As for all those young men in French cemeteries were they not described as "lions led by donkeys"?
I have just returned from my final hustings meeting (in Teeside).
It is so sad to hear the arguments of those who want to become even further enmeshed in the workings of the EU.  (Not so much donkeys as flies, gratefully accepting the spider's invitation to come into his parlour.)
 They can be summed up in two words, Greed and Hypocrisy.
"We don't agree with state funding of political parties but because the others accept it we should too."
At least in this meeting we did not get the vitriolic personal attacks on Trevor Colman that have characterised previous meetings (I have now been to 4, Tiverton. Birmingham, Liverpool and Teeside.)

Evidence has emerged that the Leadership knew that the issue of PEPPs would be divisive back in 2009 and would necessitate a ballot of members.  (An e-mail from Jonathan Arnott, Party General Secretary, to Alan Wood, then Chairman of the South West Counties Committee.)

Still it ploughed ahead, trying to implement it in secret.
Thankfully, Trevor Colman had the honesty and courage to expose the moves (probably why the personal attacks were made).  Hence the motion at the Torquay Conference, passed by an overwhelming majority of members despite opposition of Nigel Farage.
The spokesman for the Yes campaign had the nerve to blame the SWCC for costing the Party money in holding a members' ballot.

The Leadership is clearly hopelessly out of touch with the membership.

This will be my last word on the subject until after the result of the ballot is announced.
