Stuart Wheeler, the multi-millionaire who has donated millions to the Tories, has defected to UKIP.
When David Camoron reappointed arch-eurofederalist Ken Clarke to his shadow cabinet, he managed to not only irritate vast swathes of the Tory membership but also Stuart Wheeler, their biggest donor.
Wheeler warned Camoron that he wasn’t happy and they needed to buck up on their eurosceptic credentials or he was walking.
According to Wheeler, Camoron had a meeting with 70 Tory MPs and told them the European Empire isn’t an issue and this was the straw that broke the camel’s back. Wheeler has defected to UKIP and written a cheque for £100k to the party.
The public know that the EU is incompetent, ineffective, hidebound and riven with fraud but the current political class in Westminster don’t want to talk about it. I believe that millions of people want a say on the matter, and by voting UKIP they can be heard.
The LibLabCon have telling the media at every opportunity that UKIP has collapsed and that the party is going nowhere. One thing you can be sure of is that self-made millionaires don’t get to be millionaires by backing losers.
Iain Dale isn’t bovvered. Honest. Face? Bovvered? Stuart Wheeler has “committed an act of gross disloyalty” apparently. But not Camoron when he knowingly appointed Ken Clarke in the knowledge that it would mean losing their biggest donor.
