UKIP: Nigel Farage and the NEC election that never was

It may interest you to know that another NEC election is due in February.

The last issue of Independence News was due in November. So what happened to it? Members never received it. And nothing has arrived since.

Requests for nominations are published in the magazine. Those interested in standing send in their forms and election statements. These are then published with members later voting for their desired candidate.

So what happened?

No one has had the chance to put themselves forward for the vacant posts - all 4 of them. Clearly a February election is now out of the question.

It has always been the job of the Secretary to make sure that this process runs smoothly but then again when did anything run smoothly under Zuckerman? Just look at the way Nikki Sinclaire has been treated by the NEC!

Looks like Farage likes his NEC just the way it is.

Our Nigel can't take the chance that any dissidents get elected. And by dissidents we mean all those who refuse to worship at the feet of the Great Nigel Farage.

The last time that happened he had to set up a kangaroo court to remove them - Eric Edmond, David Abbott and Martin Haslam. John West was another one. But rather than bother with a kangaroo court Nigel simply refused to allow him to take his seat.

It appears that the "powers that be" will use the time used up by the leadership election as the excuse for this latest breach of the rules. And as the General Election is due why not put back the NEC elections until later in the year?

Good thinking Nigel! That will give you time to rig something to ensure you get just the 'right' sort of compliant candidates.

But what will the members say? Failing to hold elections makes a mockery of the current NEC and invalidates everything done in their name.

since the NEC is no longer lawfully constituted and has an excess of MEPs on it and Farage & Clarke turn up regularly (unless there is a decision that could prove controversial and then Farage pops out to make a phone call as I well know!)

Since several people are sitting in breech of EUkip's own Constitution - such as Lisa Duffy (Employees may not hold seats!)

Are any of the decisions of the NEC valid?
