UKIP: Malcolm and his spin in the Lords

Lord Pearson was rather surprised by the recent critical newspaper articles.

In the Lords he said:

'the subsequent media attention came as quite a shock to the system at my age'.

He would be even more surprised if knew who was behind the leaks - a member of UKIP's press office!

Some of his fellow lords were quite amused by Malcolm's offer to disband UKIP. They were even more amused by his attempts to rewrite UKIP history.

According to the Farage approved version it was all a cunning plan to expose the Tories as supporters of the EU!

So tell us something that we didn't know!

So why was Lord Pearson upset that the offer had been rejected? And why was he angry when he discovered that the offer had been leaked to the press?

Remember this?

“We made that offer but we didn’t get an answer. I’m so angry with them now.”

But why be angry? According to the latest UKIP spin the Tories fell for Nigel's cunning plan. Lord Pearson should have been pleased.

And remember Pearson's statement to the BBC?

"We offered that if we got a clear, written promise with an agreed wording for a referendum on whether we stayed in or left the European Union... then we would stand down for the general election, providing we had this absolutely clearly in writing.

"And then when we had the referendum - which we believed we would win - we would then be out of the European Union and then at that point UKIP, well it would have been up to UKIP, but it would probably have disbanded because its major point would no longer be in existence."

How strange? No mention of making the offer in order to expose Cameron's support for the EU!

Here's a bit of advice for UKIP's new leader.

If you are going to attempt to spin your way out of trouble do try to make it sound believable !
