I am not surprised that Yasin Akgun - former Vice-Chairman of Young Independence - walked away from UKIP and joined the Tories.
Young Independence is dead in the water. My dead parrot is currently more active than YI’s leadership.
Lisa Duffy - also known as Scruffy Duffy and head of YI- promised Farage hundreds of new members by the end of 2008. She failed to keep her promise.
The YI five-a-side football matches also failed to materialise.
The YI newsletter - supposedly a regular publication- appears with as much frequency as Halley’s Comet.
The YI website is about as informative as listening to David Bannerman’s maiden speech as an MEP. How about a few INTERESTING articles for a change?
And if you manage to spot any YI stalls at university fresher fairs do please let me know. At the moment you have a better chance of meeting Lord Lucan at your local university!
YI lacks intelligent leadership and ANY cohesive plan of action. Lisa Duffy and Michael Heaver are about as much use as a couple of chocolate teapots. They would be far better employed as musical doormats that play “See the Conquering Hero Comes” whenever Farage and the odious Nuttall wipe their feet on them.
Since the departure of Del Young UKIP’s youth wing has stagnated and is now simply waiting for someone with the courage to put it out of its misery.
Any offers? Will Andrew Gray - 15 year old candidate for YI Vice-Chairman - do the decent thing and consign YI to the dustbin?
