UKIP leadership contest: Gerard Batten to stand



As expected, Batten has announced his intention to stand for the leadership of UKIP. Last year he was beaten into second place by Lord Pearson.

Sadly, Gerard has a poor track record when it comes to speaking out in public about the widespread corruption in the party. For years, he has tolerated Farage's dishonesty and lies in order to avoid deselection as an MEP. Can he change and finally find the courage to stand up to Farage and clean up UKIP? We shall see.

PRESS RELEASE

UK Independence Party

From Gerard Batten MEP, London

Date: 25th August 2010

GERARD BATTEN MEP TO RUN FOR
LEADERSHIP OF THE UK INDEPENDENCE PARTY

Gerard Batten, UKIP MEP for London, announces his intention to be a candidate in the forthcoming leadership contest for the UK Independence Party.

Mr Batten came second in the UKIP leadership election in November 2009. He is founder member of UKIP and has represented London since 2004.

Mr Batten said, "I will saying more about my programme for the Party as the contest progresses. At this stage it is sufficient to say that my vision for the Party is for it to continue its development as a radical alternative to the cross-party consensus that is reducing Britain the status of a colony of the European Union.

"I have been persuaded to make my decision on the basis of the large number of calls and messages I have had from UKIP activists and members asking me to enter the contest and because I have a clear view of where the Party should be heading".* *

There is an advert on TV at the moment,which features a teenage daughter advising her middle-aged father, who is about to go for a job interview, that he must use 'Mr Men' hair colour, on his greying dull,hair. The inference being, that if grey hair is not visible, a man has a better chance of getting a job.

Surprise, surprise! grey haired middle-aged man, uses it, is magically transfored into a dark haired handsome hunk. And he gets the job too!

Perhaps Mr Batten and other males entering the UKIP leadership contest should consider using it?

In this media driven age we live in, looking good is essential for political leaders.

Not only that, looking young and vital inspires confidence.

A sun tan helps too, as does cosmetic surgery for those bags under the eyes.

Remember, It was not only Gordon Brown's handling of the economy that caused people to lose faith in him, but his increasing absolutley knackered, grey and worn down demeanor that caused people to speculate whether he was really up to the job.
