By Elections Officer
In recent local election the Party polled a respectable 10% plus results in two Leicestershire seats and in Pendle. Graham Partner polled the highest percentage at 12.7% in Hugglescote St Johns. Our three candidates in Thurmaston polled an average of 11.5% and Gary Topping polled over 10% in Waterside ward in Pendle.
As a comparison to other patriotic parties we polled much better. We know those parties are finished electoral and this includes the British National Party and English Democrats. I won't mention the rest as they are not worth mentioning.
UKIP is now imploding at a central level over the future of Farage, who resigned and then 'didn't resign' or it seems didn't resign 'officially'. What a comedy show! It is now thought Farage will try and purge UKIP of those who democratically oppose his leadership; Patrick Flynn, Suzanne Evans and even Douglas Carswell.
Nigel Farage took a break once before after he was leader from 2006-2009, when he was replaced by Lord Pearson for one year before returning. In fact Farage has been UKIP leader for just under a decade in two stints. UKIP really is a one man show. Does this behaviour remind you of another leader, but with less personality – Yes Nick Griffin!
In light of the above and UKIP going to the centre and the collapse of any other patriotic party it is time for the fence sitters to get involved, work for and promote our voice and JOIN THE PATRIOTIC FIGHTACK!
2010 was a poor year electorally for the movement, but it was for the Lib Dems too and Labour in Scotland. Together we can grow and win back our supporters. Why make this stand because BRITIAIN NEEDS A REAL GENUINE PATRIOTIC VOICE!
