 Farage's Failure at Eastleigh

Well what happened at Eastleigh can hardly have come as any kind of surprise for those of us who despaired of UKIP and broke away to form Veritas in the teeth of a General Election several years ago.  We then feared (I was Member Number 3 after RKS & his wife so can talk with some authority,) that the UKIP MEP led party lacked sincerity, drive and honest intent in its and their stated aim of having the UK break with the EU.

The 28th February 2013, by-election at Eastleigh has once more, quite stunningly brought these same plain facts home.

The full sorry saga is recorde by my tweets throughout the month of February, just passed, and as always my blog postings on Ironies Too, the archive for that month being linked here. As always for Blogger nowadays, that file is length restricted and only begins on 8th February, so I have pasted the missing relevant posts below:

Eastleigh voters have THE chance to "Call Time" on the Corruption of UK Politics

Chris Huhne, former MEP and Secretary of State for Energy and Climate Change resigned yesterday and there will soon be a by-election in the Constituency of Eastleigh.

Should I consider running as an Independent based on my political views as delivered on Ironies, Ironies Too, Ukip Uncovered, Strasbourg Cesspit and Teetering Tories over the past ten years and before that my novel Millennium Blitzkrieg, the Financial Times  Forums on the Future of the Euro (as NM) and the Europa Discussion Forums of the Brussels machine? Comments welcome!

Should I seek another suitable independent candidate behind whom I could throw my weight? 

Or should I wait and see who UKIP select and possibly support that party if they field a sufficiently strong and fundamentally decent candidate?

Chris Huhnes' career which spectacularly portrays the deep rot within our political system is reviewed by Wikipedia here, and in much of the British Press this morning!

Why waste time and effort at an election that neither you nor the UKIP candidate will win? Not that you would not make a far better MP than the slime who has vacated the seat, but that not enough people will vote outside Libdim or Conservative. I think the difference between the two parties will be the UKIP and independent votes with the Libdims winning.The Labour vote will go to the Libdims.

Can a UKIP Leader Claim "Busy in EU" to avoid Eastleigh By-Election

The UK Independence Party aims to secure renewal of Sovereign Independence and Parliamentary Governance  under a Constitutional Monarchy for the UK.

A golden opportunity exists in Eastleigh on 28th February to advance that cause. The sitting Liberal Democrat has been shamed by ten years of repeated lying, the Tories face their own leadership crisis, Labour's mis-mangement of the economy for more than a decade is under the spotlight with the latest scandals and fines by the US authorities of the taxpayer owned RBS.

Never again will the circumstances for a UKIP victory at a by-election be more fortuitous! My tweets of last evening spell out further reasons and are quoted herewith:

  1. Another factor  may have overlooked in deciding not to run at  in the 20 day campaign, the Tories sex abuse info is leaking
  2. So many of us have spent so many years fighting the clear evil the EU has NOW become surely Farage owes it his best shot at Eastleigh. 
  3.  Is there anybody in the party who can make these obvious points of my last few tweets plain and clear to Nigel Farage?
  4. : Why are Labour so pessimistic about Eastleigh? " WHY ARE UKIP WITH FARAGE???
  5. The short Eastleigh campaign totally erodes Farage's reasons for not standing in Eastleigh 20 days away from EU of no importance at all!!!
  6. Conservative base in Eastleigh must be hugely vulnerable following last nights vote and huge rumblings of Tory discontent!  re-think!
  7.  need to mobilise FAST!!! if Cameron removal is already underway a straight LibDem vs UKIP fight is an Eastleigh possibility
  8. Cameron in trouble Big trouble AND under attack on Conservative Home  Clegg must be hoping to seal an Eastleigh win fast

Should there be a question mark at the end of the title to this post, or should I have added "or lose electoral support?"?

Marta Adreasen MEP attacks Nigel Farage MEP

The BBC report of 6th February, is linked here and appears to revolve around differences between men and women, nowadays described as sexism! A clue to the attack being based upon policy differences regarding the perfectly obvious point that should Farage walk the walk as well as he talks the talk - HE WOULD OBVIOUSLY BE STANDING IN THE EASTLEIGH By-election for UKIP! 
See this earlier tweet dated 5th February, when news of Farage's FUNK first appeared, as retweeted by myself @IroniesToo:

Nigel won't run in eastleigh. An opportunity for our first mp missed. by-election

The question has to be IS Farage man or mouse?

Perhaps he does not want a Ukip MP. Quite frankly it does not surprise me, I have thought for a long time he had no backbone.

Farage is a Busy Man and is needed to lead the Party into the next Council Elections and EU Elections, He is also needed to lead the Brussels Revolt!

Andreasen's comments were made because She has Eyes on Farages Job, Farage isn't a 'Stalinist' or a 'Woman Hater' it's just Sour Grapes and the Woman should be Kicked Out!

Well done Farage! Well done UKIP

As though "busy in the EU" was not a poor enough excuse as to why UKIP's Leader deliberately and after only a day of thought, chose not to run in Eastleigh, that decision and excuse was made even worse when the election was called for the earliest possible date of 28th February, rather than the predicted early May of popular belief due to such date co-inciding with local elections. Worse, far worse, however  was to follow!

How the UKIP candidate was selected remains a mystery. That Diane James was deleiberately chosen to muff this greatest of all opportunities now appears an increasngly realistic viewpoint. (I struggled to keep this suspicions to myself throughout the campaign considering a substantial anti-EU vote being incredibly important, which thankfully is now attained - albeit in unnecessary defeat.) 

Eastleigh a light industrial industrtial based consituency was hardly prime territory for an Independent Councillor from the leafy hills of Surrey, let alone one who had spent her professional career working in or consulting to the private health business some of which reportedly had US interests (an obvious major Eastleigh negative factor). What better background for the LibDem party activists to dissuade their wavering NHS dedicated supporters.

An apparent lie in her original campaign literature on her longevity of UKIP membership plus the fact that her election in Waverley was as an Independent rather than as a UKIP party member also besmirched to opening of the campaign for UKIP.

Worse still, notwithstanding the fine campaigning attributes of Diane James, her declaration of interests filed as a Councillor in Waverley for Ewhurst showed she shared directorship of the company, Iduna Ventures, owning her home address in Ewhurst with a Dr Richard Forrest who has held a rather startling 27 different directorships according to this linked search tool, a rather stupefying fact with which the typical Eastleigh voter may have been persuaded away from a UKIP vote.  

So was it a Committee of individuals who picked the eventual candidate for UKIP in Eastleigh or was it just Nigel Farage or indeed was it somebody outside UKIP who has influence with Mr Farage or those with enough influence within the party to impose their "LOSING" choice.

Set against all of the  foregoing it hardly seems significant that Nigel Farage chose not to tweet any of his 62346 loyal followers as the vote was underway yesterday, although it was clear eveidence to me that the voting had become extremely tight, as indeed later proved to be the case.

UKIP has once again no MP at Westminster, the one Parliament where our withdrawal from the EU can be accomplished. 

UKIP may not yet have been Uncovered enough for some stalwart party members to still not see the horrible truth. It's all as clear as daylight once again to me!
