Crisis In UKIP! And now UKIP's resident genius resigns in a huff

I was shocked to learn that Bob Feal-Martinez - Swindon’s greatest living idiot and Farage's greatest living sycophant - has resigned as UKIP's Swindon PPC and chairman.

Here is the terrible news:

Feal-Martinez stands down as UKIP chairman

10th September 2009

By James Wallin

HEALTH problems and concerns over political direction have led the leader of Swindon’s UK Independence Party to stand down.

Robert Feal-Martinez has resigned as chairman of the Swindon UKIP group and as prospective parliamentary candidate for South Swindon.

Local Conservatives have admitted they would welcome discussions with Mr Feal-Martinez if he decided to change parties.

The landlord of South Marston pub, the Carpenters Arms, had an operation on his eye last year and has also recently been diagnosed as having diabetes.

He said his resignation had sparked feelings both of relief and sadness.

“I am disappointed to have to step down but with my health problems I had to make a decision on where my energies should be best directed,” he said.

“I have to put my business first, especially in this difficult time for the economy.” Mr Feal-Martinez admitted he disagreed with certain decisions by UKIP nationally.

He said: “The party is still committed to leaving Europe but there seems to be an opinion that if we could do a deal to achieve that then fine.

“Essentially if someone like Justin Tomlinson (Tory candidate for Swindon North) or Robert Buckland (Tory candidate for Swindon South) supported an ‘out’ vote we would not stand in their way.

“I do not agree that our own members should be sidelined in that way.”

Coun Justin Tomlinson said Mr Feal-Martinez’s resignation would be a huge blow to UKIP and that he would be a welcome addition to the Conservative Party.

He said: “Bob is someone I have worked with over a number of years and, while I don’t agree with him 100 per cent of the time, I think he has much to offer.”

South Swindon MP Anne Snelgrove said: “This just goes to show that UKIP is in real trouble in Swindon and I’m not surprised that Robert has found it necessary to stand down.

“I wish him well in recovering from his health problems and I’m sure he will continue to be a big presence in Swindon, particularly in the blogosphere.”

Mr Feal-Martinez confirmed that he would continue to comment regularly on the Swindon Advertiser’s website.

He said: “I’m sure I will get some stick on the comments but I have my say and I can handle criticism.”

Will Swindon ever be the same again? Should I nominate Bob for a peerage? How will UKIP cope without this living genius? Should we all go into mourning? Will Junius ever get over the shock? And are Swindon's Tories just plain crazy?

Bob Feel Martinis of The Carpenters Pub, South Moulton is clearly proven to be a liar in his anti UKIP behaviour.

Unfortunately Bob Feel Martinis just can not tell truth from fiction and even lies in serial self agrandisement in The Swindon Advertiser.

He claims he was removed fom a list that is NOT EUkip controlled.

Bob Feel Martinis is one of the very few anti UKIP posters removed for an serious perions. Other anti UKIP individuals from the same corrupt claque that has all but destroyed the party by dragging it into the gutter for their personal gain as EUkip such as Denny, Croucher, Padmore, McGough, Worstall, and several others clear enjoy the protection of the corrupt Forum owner Anthony Butcher and certain of his moderators intimidated by the corrupt lies of Nuttall who has been placed as Chairman of the anti UKIP claque that has so probably terminally damaged the party.

The BFM's lies and frequent blithering stupidity spoke volumes of the self seeking claque of EUkip.

The BFM was removed after a series of unprincipled personalised attacks on various people - unable to address the facts he, as a coward, abused his position and lied and defamed individuals.

Unable to provide answers to the points raised he attacked the messengers - preferrably those unable to respond.

The final straw came when he went a lie too far claiming that I was a bankrupt! Unable to provide any substantiation as it is and was a lie rather than issue a correction and written apology he ran away!

I note in the Swindon paper he claims it was because he could not expose his sources - so clearly he is the erand boy of EUkip liars further up the tree.

No doubt those who criminally accessed my CRB only to find there was nothing of consequence thereon but that did not prevent these anti UKIP self seekers from much of a technical firearms charge almost 30 years ago!

The BFM in passing on this spent information was acting unlawfully and as an ex PC even someone as ill informed and dishonest as he is aware that his action was beyond the law.

Bob Feel Martinis of The Carpenters Pub, South Moulton is thus clearly proven to be a liar in his anti UKIP behaviour.
