UKIP: Bits and bobs

Mike Smith on Pan-European Parties

Mike Smith, No to PEPs campaigner, is not happy! From the UKIP members only forum:

The Thick and Thin Of PEPPs

The situation regarding the wording of the Question to be put to members has descended into absolute farce.

I was told last Monday by a very reliable source that the current version of the Question is;

"Should the UK Independence Party's MEPs join a European Political Party as defined under Regulation EC2003/2004?"

This had not been announced officially because some members of the NEC had not been contacted.

Consequently, the debates at Birmingham and Liverpool went ahead based on the original version of the Question as printed in Independence.

End of statement.

Nuff said!

Monkton makes an ass of himself ..... again!

What a plonker, what a liability! And who brought him on board? Yep, good old Nigel!

Why do some UKIPPERS still believe that Monckton would be the ideal successor to Farage? The man is an idiot and a liar!

"Lord Monckton, the outspoken British politician, has prompted outrage in Australia after labelling the government's chief climate change adviser a fascist, likening him to Hitler"


Monckton's OTT utterances, coupled with grovelling apologies when challenged don't help his cause one little bit!

"I have written to Ross Garnaut to withdraw unreservedly and to apologise humbly" .

If he truly believed that the dogma of unquestionable climate change was indeed fascist, why then buckle like a wet blancmange when challenged? Not much of a backbone!

Monckton also said; "What I said about his opinions was unparliamentary and unstatesmanlike". Talk about delusions of grandeur!

It is very unlikely that you will EVER be a parliamentarian - unless you are still claiming to a member of the House of Lords! And never, by any stretch of the imagination, have you ever been a statesman!
