The article begins:
'The United Kingdom Independence Party (UKIP) continues to slide into the tar pits reserved for small insignificant political creatures. The ongoing cruelties and absurdities perpetrated by its leadership have left its beleaguered membership bemused, disgusted and aghast. Its a moving story......'
The article was published in the January 2004 edition of the 'Sprout' by a certain Mr Gawain Towler. The same Mr Towler is now an MEP candidate for ... UKIP!
Isn't it amazing how a little Dane-geld gives someone a whole new perspective on things?
My readers may recall that Mr Towler was told by UKIP’s South West Committee to ‘reconsider’ his future as a UKIP MEP candidate after certain allegations were made by Mrs Towler on the family blog. He had a few days in which to resign or face de-selection.
Towler appealed to Farage and the decision to remove him was overturned. See: LINK
Copies of Mrs Towler’s allegations are now in the hands of the press and certain Tory and Labour MEPs.
