UKIP: Alex Benjamin

UKIP has a new press officer in Brussels , Alex Benjamin.

An ex-Tory, like Towler, Fuller, Sobey, and so many others that Farage relies on for his press support, Mr Benjamin is an interesting choice. He has not been so kind about UKIP in the past, and has even authored an article in which he is somewhat critical of UKIP's withdrawalist position.

Here are some highlights.

"There are so many positive things about the EU. The single market, free movement of people and labour, health, educational, business, human rights and environmental legislation that has made a real and significantly positive change to how we live our lives."

"It is genuinely exciting to be part of a new force in Brussels that seeks a pragmatic and sensible alternative to wholesale withdrawal as UKIP would have it"

"This is, in essence, what Europe should be about: talking to each other, working together and sharing experience and experiences together, rather like the Schuman vision all those years ago. This is a great thing and I’m firmly and proudly European in this sense and equally proud to be working to this end on a daily basis."

You can read the full text of the rabidly pro-EU Mr Benjamin's article here: http://www.openunionism.com/?p=106

So, Farage, could you please explain this?
