On the 8th December UKIP’s very own ‘Bloggers 4 UKIP’ site featured the following story:
“AT least one corner of Doddington is sparkling with Christmas lights thanks to the Fenland branch of UKIP.When members found out the village would not be having lights this year it decided to do something about it. The branch paid for the purchase and installation of lights all over the Three Tuns public house and gardens. On Friday there were celebrations for the big switch-on.
Len Baynes of UKIP explained that for a number of years the pub has been the unofficial headquarters for UKIP in the Fens.
He said: "We felt that all the support we get from Brian and Jenny Adams and the clientele at the pub deserves some recognition. A fully qualified electrician has been on hand to oversee the installation and it was great to see so many people at the switch-on”.
End of article.
Conveniently 'Bloggers 4 UKIP' failed to mention the fact that UKIP Fenland had received absolutely no help, encouragement or support from the Party or the Regional Organiser. Indeed, they are totally ignored by Farage and his clique.
Peter Cole, Chairman of UKIP Fenland, has said on the British Democracy Forum (30/12/8) that “Fenland Branch gets NO help from either HQ or the regional committee or from Peter Reeve the regional organiser; they are too busy promoting themselves”.
End of quote.
Farage’s total contempt for the membership will prove his undoing. Many branches are already refusing to campaign in the Euros because they now realise that the leadership is only interested in them when they want their money or their activists to campaign to get Farage and his friends elected to the EU Gravy Train.
UKIP faces electoral disaster in 2009 unless Farage’s and his cabal are removed. Their inept leadership, incompetence and dishonesty have all but destroyed UKIP.
UKIP’s future leaders must always put patriotism before self-interest and greed. We need decent and men and women who believe in democracy and freedom of speech. Unless this is done UKIP will implode.
