UKIP Supporters, Activists and Party Employees' Dilemma

The disgraceful mess that UKIP has put itself in at Eastleigh gives the party a chance to break free from all the accumulated question marks that hover over its history and leadership. The problem is well summarised in recent postings on my other blog  Ironies Too, culminating in this post of this morning which is also pasted at the end of this post.

As has always been the case,  UKIP has many hard-working and decent supporters and party members firmly believing in the restoration of democracy to our country. Too often in the past such enthusiasts have been betrayed by others who have seen the cause as a simple bread ticket.

I have recently been encouraged, upon resuming some interest in the party's progress, by the calibre of the work and contributions by so many within the UKIP family not least having ealier been aware of the work of its press officer,   a courageous journalist who campaigned manfully against the grotesque EU from its very heart in Brussels years ago as I well know from my own subscription to "The Sprout" while it existed.

Such people must assert themselves, otherwise true patriotic, anti-collectivist democrats across the country will be left with a choice such as that now facing the voters of Eastleigh, abstention or a vote for a party led by David Cameron.

Or is there still time for an alternative candidate to be registered for UKIP at Eastleigh? Here is my Ironies Too post of today, branding Diane James a liar, for based on the evidence, no other conclusion is possible. I have more to say on Nigel Farage in a post submitted to the International Business Times which I expect to be published later today or tomorrow!


UKIP's Proposed Eastleigh Candidate is a Liar

An Independent, as James declares herself to the Ewhurst electors, must by definition belong to NO political party!

Yet the publicity blurb, issued by UKIP on 11th February 2013, introducing Diane James to the voters of Eastleigh, linked here, states the following:

"She joined UKIP in 2010 after deciding that they were the only party which represented her views on the political scene"

Either Ms James was lying to the voters of Waverley in May 2011 or she is now lying to the voters of Eastleigh, together with UKIP, regarding the date when she joined that party.

After ten years of being represented by a now self-confessed lying MP, Chris Huhne, who has incidentally now been told to attend court at lunchtime today with a "going away bag", surely the electorate of Eastleigh now deserves truthful, in so far as that is now possible in England, political representation?
