Here is his NEC election address in full. Taken from Greg Lance-Watkins blog: http://caterpillarsandbutterflies.blogspot.com/2009/02/271-witness-intimidation-re-warry-west.html
The NEC exists to represent the interests of our members.
They should fight for transparency, democracy and justice.
The current NEC is failing in that duty. Democratically elected member of UKIP’s NEC have been removed. Others face expulsion from the party for daring to raise unpalatable questions about the way UKIP is run. This must stop.
I will resist any proposed changes to the constitution that give the leader or chairman dictatorial powers.
UKIP must concentrate on fighting Westminster elections. Getting MP’s elected should be our priority because without representation at Westminster we can achieve little.
I will fight for a National Leadership team that concentrates on fighting national and local elections.
Talent in UKIP must be encouraged to flourish without the fear of censure.
All MEPs accounts must be open to scrutiny.
A full audit of the Ind Dem Group’s finances must also be undertaken.
