JUNIUS has a critical look at UKIP through the eyes of several long-standing members
Tuesday, 16 August 2011
How many UKIPPERS remember that the 15th August was Napoleon Bonaparte's birthday?
How ironic that the 15th of August was also the last chance for UKIPPERS to vote on the issue of UKIP MEPs joining a pan-European party! So will Farage face his Waterloo?
The votes are now being counted and we await the result with interest. UKIPPERS should consider the following facts:
The voting slips were unnumbered and were sent to a private address. Iffy!
Farage had already lost a previous conference debate on pan-European parties. Remember his reaction?
'they have just lost me 1 million Euros over this'. See: LINK
Certain MEPs have already made it clear that they will ignore a 'No Vote' and seek permission from their regional committee to join a PEP. Stuart Agnew is one.
Godfrey Bloom is already on the board of a PEP. See: LINK
Gerard Batten has already backtracked on the issue of PEPs. He now says that he will consider joining one IF there is a 'get out' clause!
A very large number of UKIP activists have said they will resign from the party if the 'Yes' campaign wins. We shall see!
So what if the 'Yes' campaign succeeds?
UKIP becomes pan-European and embraces federalism. Farage and his sycophants buy lifetime tickets on the EU Gravy Train. The core values of the party are abandoned.
And if the vote isn't rigged?
Farage and his parasites are humiliated. The party has wasted thousands of pounds in a pointless vote. The calls for Farage to resign as leader grow louder. Agnew and Farage join a PEP in defiance of the membership. Others follow suit.
This will be the time for certain MEPs to grasp the nettle and reclaim the party from the corrupt elements that have led UKIP into the sewer.
So are you fit for the challenge?
