McGough is well aware that this is a complete and utter lie. But why should we expect any different from this serial liar and cheat?
You will recall that McGough has a track record of telling lies.
In his MEP election address he described himself as the PPC for Harlow. It was quickly pointed out to him by Harlow's UKIP Chairman that this was untrue.
Piers Merchant - UKIP’s Returning Officer - also raised concerns about this. In his report on the MEP selection process he said: ‘I have received complaints about Michael McGough, who, it was claimed, described himself as a UKIP PPC when he was not, thus seriously misleading the voters’.
Predictably the NEC ignored Mr Merchant and his report.
In any other party McGough would have been removed from the MEP list and brought before a disciplinary committee for bringing the party into disrepute. But as this is UKIP you can get away with almost anything as long as you are prepared to condone leadership corruption.
McGough now holds his fellow UKIP members in such contempt that he even jokes about his lies. Indeed, on the British Democracy Forum he has openly mocked fellow members who have demanded that he apologise for his gross misconduct.
I am surprised that McGough did not put his name forward for the NEC. As the current NEC is full of liars, sycophants and idiots McGough would feel quite at home!
And don't forget that McGough is just one of many liars in UKIP.
Let us not forget that Bannerman has lied about his ancestry while Nuttall was prepared to fabricate complaints against Gregg Beaman in order to remove him as lead UKIP MEP candidate in the North West.
And these are the sort of dishonest people that the unsuspecting British public are being asked to vote for on June 4th.
May God help them!
