In fact it was cancelled because Farage was convinced that the organisers of UK Renewal were going to launch a new party. He wanted to hold the NEC meeting after the Swindon conference in order to discuss the best way to deal with this new breakaway party. As you now know the expected launch never happened. So much for Nigel’s intelligence network!
The meeting is to be held in Nigel’s lovely new campaign HQ in London. The gathering is set to last for just two and a half hours. Topics to be discussed include the postponement of John West’s kangaroo court, the constitutional changes, the Knapman letter and the Ugley meeting.
John West’s expulsion was postponed after he sent the NEC a letter threatening to report Jeffrey Titford and Michael Zuckerman to the authorities for witness intimidation. As you can imagine this caused a few problems!
Paul Nuttall ( pictured here with Nigel and a friend) has been faced with several calls to suspend Farage sycophants Peter Reeve and George Curtis. These complaints concern allegations of gross misconduct. Naturally, he does not have ANY intention of suspending them. His current tactic is to play for time until the constitutional changes go through. Once that happens the complainants can be thrown out of the party.
I don’t expect David Challice’s worsening underpants ‘problem’ to be raised.
