Totalitarian UKIP exposed by The Telegraph

It's gratify to learn that the national newspapers read this blog and GLW. We were the first and only websites to publish the Hamilton/Andreasen correspondence.

So now even more members of the British public are now aware that UKIP is a dictatorship under the control of one man - Nigel Farage. We are note that the majority of the comments at the end of the article are hardly pro-UKIP!

UKIP's claim to be democratic and libertarian is the biggest joke in British politics! Or should that title go the Hamiltons?

'Totalitarian’ Ukip in furious row involving Neil and Christine Hamilton

Marta Andreasen, the Ukip MEP, says it 'resembles a totalitarian party' after she is accused of spreading 'false rumours' about Neil Hamilton and his wife, Christine.

Riding high in the opinion polls, the UK Independence Party trumpets itself as the new third force in British politics. Some of its most prominent members are, however, struggling to avoid living up to David Cameron’s description of Ukip as a hotbed of squabbling “fruitcakes”.
Mandrake can disclose that one of Ukip’s members of the European Parliament has become involved in an extraordinary row with Neil and Christine Hamilton, who joined the party amid much fanfare in 2011.
Neil Hamilton, who was elected to Ukip’s national executive committee, has threatened to sue Marta Andreasen for spreading “false rumours” about him and his wife.
Andreasen, a Spanish accountant, who became one of the party’s 12 MEPs in 2009, has refused to apologise. Adding insult to injury, the former European Commission whistleblower has forwarded Hamilton’s furious email to every constituency chairman in the south of England.
The dispute centres on Andreasen’s allegation that the Hamiltons are being lined up for seats in the European Parliament, thanks to manipulation of the selection process for candidates.

Hamilton, who lost the fourth safest Tory seat in Britain after the “cash-for-questions affair”, thunders: “As you may know, I am a barrister by profession and a very experienced libel litigant.

Your email is defamatory and damaging to Christine and my reputations. We require you to send an apology and retraction.”

In her email to the chairmen, Andreasen says: “Neil’s email is an attempt to deflect from the points that I was making. He has [not] attempted to rebuff the claim that the now highly centralised NEC and the party leader have taken over the placement of candidates on the list in something that I have to say really resembles a totalitarian party.”

She adds: “It is disgraceful that, as an elected representative of the British people, I am threatened in such a way following a communication to my voters. Ukip executive should not tolerate this behaviour, but I only get silence from that corner.”
