Members & staff of UKIP past & present. Committed to reforming the party by exposing the corruption and dishonesty that lies at its heart, in the hope of making it fit for purpose.
Only by removing Nigel Farage and his sycophants on the NEC can we save UKIP from electoral oblivion.
Farage's position as leader becomes even more untenable!
Statement From Roger Knapman - 11 May 2011
A number of unhappy UKIP MEPs have approached me in recent days.
It is a disappointment that the party has not capitalised on its past successes and does not seem to be moving forward electorally. At the time when UKIP should be pressing for a referendum on our continued membership of the EU, and highlighting the extreme costs of that membership, the party leadership seems besotted with the idea that we should join an unsuitable pan-European grouping that would mean we become part of the problem rather than part of the solution.
I hope that the leadership will listen to these MEPs, and to the party membership, and reassess its priorities.
