Taken from UKIP's official website:
UKIP leader Malcolm Pearson today confirmed that he was retaining David Campbell Bannerman as the Party Deputy Leader.
"I am delighted to reappoint David", said Lord Pearson, "I know he has been an invaluable asset in the role previously, and will continue in that vein."
We are not surprised that Lord Pearson decided to retain a serial liar as Deputy Leader. Nigel still pulls ALL the strings!
We note that Bannerman is still claiming bogus links to a former prime minister. When will he ever learn?
Is Lord Pearson aware that Bannerman has built his entire career in UKIP on a lie?
Is he aware that the Eastern Region MEP selection process was rigged to favour Bannerman?
Is he aware that Bannerman actively supported the expulsion of democratically elected members from UKIP's NEC? He even provided a dossier of fabricated evidence to support the removal of Dr Eric Edmond.
Bannerman is just another example of a failed Tory politician who joined UKIP in order to jump on the EU Gravy Train. He is a political pygmy without a shred of integrity.
His patriotism is dictated by how much money he can earn while keeping his snout firmly in the trough.
That the new leader is happy to keep him as chairman hardly suggests that he will be a new broom!
