Farage no confidence motion fails

! This post hasn't been updated in over a year. A lot can change in a year including my opinion and the amount of naughty words I use. There's a good chance that there's something in what's written below that someone will find objectionable. That's fine, if I tried to please everybody all of the time then I'd be a Lib Dem (remember them?) and I'm certainly not one of those. The point is, I'm not the kind of person to try and alter history in case I said something in the past that someone can use against me in the future but just remember that the person I was then isn't the person I am now nor the person I'll be in a year's time.

A motion of no confidence in Nigel Farage and the National Executive Council of UKIP proposed by former PPC, Bruce Lawson, was soundly defeated last night.

Lawson, who was responsible for the leak that instigated the Electoral Commission’s investigation into UKIP last year, failed to secure even a third of the votes despite claiming to have grassroots support.  He wants Farage to lead the MEPs group but stand down as leader of the party and has publicly criticised Nigel Farage and David Campbell-Bannerman on a number of times which makes me wonder – as with members of the “Phoenix Forum” – just why do they continue their UKIP membership if they’re so intent on damaging the party?  Are they, in fact, fifth columnists planted or manipulated by the eurofederalists?  It’s hardly beneath Federal Europe or their supporters to do that sort of thing if it means protecting their beloved quango from criticism.
