Members & staff of UKIP past & present. Committed to reforming the party by exposing the corruption and dishonesty that lies at its heart, in the hope of making it fit for purpose. Only by removing Nigel Farage and his sycophants on the NEC can we save UKIP from electoral oblivion. SEE: http://juniusonukip.blogspot.co.uk/2013/05/a-statement-re-junius.html

The Genius of Nigel Farage or Why UKIP should be renamed the Titanic









UKIP membership figures taken from Electoral Commission returns and internal election figures.

December 2004: 26,000
December 2005: 19,000
December 2006: 16,000
June 2007: 16,700
December 2007: 15,900
February 2008: 14,861
Source: Basildon Boy via the British Democracy Forum.

Please note that UKIP lost 7000 members in just 12 months! Please also note that at the time of the June 2004 Euro elections membership stood at almost 30,000. In five years membership has dropped by 50%.

Still think that Captain Nigel is doing a great job?

UKIP did not loose 1000 members over two months. Your dates are wrong, I suppose thats what you get when you copy and paste lol.

Josh - what is the official propaganda, since you and a multiplicity of sock puppets are the official apologists for the party?

December 2004: 26,000
December 2005: 19,000
December 2006: 16,000
June 2007: 16,700
December 2007: 15,900
February 2008: 14,861

sounds right based on the Official returns - which do not show the figure for February 2009.

However if you have the current figure do publish it as in the Eastern Region particularly there has been a steady fall and many activists of principle have left.

They are currently losing about 17 a week I gather.

I do concede that there have been a small number of youngsters who are particularly naive and those joining the cheats and proven liars seeking preferment.

There is likely to be a huge collapse over the next few months as EUkip has been so effective recruiting for and publicising the odious BNP - also be minded that many of the 5 year memberships from the Ashford scam end shortly.

I do agree with Farage's comment treat the EU election as a referendum on the Constitution/ Lisbon Treaty - so write:
LEAVE THE EU
on your Ballot Paper rather than vote for corrupt and useless Politicians.

Greg if anyone has left it was because of people like you. The last figure BB gave 14,861 he meant to publish it under February 2009 and it was only his prediction. You can check the officical returns for 2008 we didnt loose 1000 members over two months. BB has even realsied this. UKIPs membership has actually increased the last few months in most regions.

well i suppose we should be lucky that Farage's 'Fuhrer' bill didn't pass as the membership would've been down to about 100 within a couple of months!!!!!

Josh, If anyone has left UKIP, don't give credit to the GLW! Memberships of all parties go up and down. Regardless of support for a particular party, the public are getting sick and tired of all parties, even more so with this phenomenon of a recession! GLW is suffering from a psychological problem with his consistant attack on UKIP and its leaders. There are critics and there are critics. But he believes and says " I am so wonderful that other people become dependent on me in what I say about UKIP". The trouble is, he is on a island talking to a coconut with a face drawn on it!

Hi,

A foolish statement in view of the 1,000s of UKIP leaflets I have distributed and the large amount I have done recruiting to UKIP - probably more than you could possibly do before it is wound up.

Perhaps you should read a little of the history before you make a complete chump of yourself.

The last figure BB gave 14,861 he meant to publish it under February 2009 and it was only his prediction.

Are your figures any more accurate than BB? Your official internal figure does NOT tally with 14,861 and is appreciably less. Perhaps Andy Fear one of Derek Clark's Political campaigning staff responsible as Memberships Clerk can help you but as he is paid I am reliably informed, with an EU allowance which is I understand under OLAF investigation as a fraudulent abuse I suggest you don't waste time.

You can check the officical returns for 2008 we didnt loose 1000 members over two months.

Was it more ? EUkip has gone from about 30,000 to about 14,000 since 2004 most of which losses have been the hard working activists bullied out of EUkip by the corruption and dishonesty you seem to find acceptable.

Many more will leave on paper now as they were 5 year memberships that have expired with no gain for EUkip - in fact a nett loss as none of the Ashford money would seem to have reached the Party and the balance was seemingly 'trousered' with at least £250,000 vanishing into one private bank account we have identified!

BB has even realsied this.

Since you claim his figures were wrong perhaps as originally asked you could substantiate corrections.

UKIPs membership has actually increased the last few months in most regions.

Appreciably? Does this balance the known losses?

Let us hope not as with their present leadership, aspirants and management it would be a tragedy for the electorate to be represented by a single one of these disgusting people.

EUkip brings shame on the body politic and that they are the lesser of two evils makes them no less an evil.

I hope you do not befoul your reputation at so young an age by association with such peoples and their lack of morality and self serving greed.

I seek no position, wish for no rewards, have no need of employ and thus am imune to the lies and attacks - however you have your life ahead and the likes of searchlight, The Fabians, thwarted Politicians kept from their troughs have long memories.

By all means phone me if I can help you understand in time - I NEVER quote who I speak with without their permission.

Further I have NEVER in my life lied or deliberately misled anyone. For all EUkip's revolting attempts to defame me to silence the truth they have not caused me other than irritation that has led to me UPPING the game.

They are soooo stupid they are their own worste enemies.

I am however happy to take your unfortunately false praise that I may have woken some up to the reality and they will no longer vote for corruption.

Let us hope they treat this election as a referendum and write on their ballott papers

LEAVE THE EU

Don't you feel it is cowardly to not give your name when you are accusing poor little Johnny Onyons of being a coconut?
