What follows is a truly eye opening letter written by a current UKIP council candidate for Salford, Manchester.
Brussels Mole, writes:
“As evidenced by the following article, Nigel Farage has once again fallen out with one of his own appointees. One could hardly make it up. It won’t be the last. We hear that there are murmurs and rumours behind the scenes in Brussels, with MEPs fed up with him but not brave enough to vent their anger publicly.
The list of those departing from high office in Ukip is colossal and has been referred to here, before, most recently in Carl Mason’s article.
Why does the ‘dear leader’ fall out with his closest allies, many of them his own appointees? Could it be something to do with his magnetic personality? Send us an email to firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any special insight
Original letter written by UKIP council candidate for Boothstown & Ellenbrook, sent in by Salford nationalist and British Renaissance Policy Institute executive board member, Eddy O’Sullivan.
I have now been confirmed by the electoral services manager, Neil Watts, to be the official UKIP council candidate for Boothstown & Ellenbrook 2016. And it’s strange because a year ago, the man I was then would have been very pleased about this news. The case now, however, is very much the opposite. Since the general election of last year, during which I was a mere political activist, I wasn’t as intimately involved with the Salford branch of UKIP. But a year has now passed, and within that year many things have been revealed to me. And these things – or revelations – are a burden upon my conscience, primarily because I feel that they, in their essence, are presenting a likeable image to the electorate; when actually, what is lurking behind the curtain of UKIP Salford (and perhaps of UKIP itself) is a detestable club of self-interested, political aspirants; hiding away their skeletons, and of whom, for that reason, are lying to the average voter.
I should, I suppose, first begin by unravelling the reason behind my candidacy. Owen Hammond, my dear friend whom is standing in the Mayoral election, is a tremendously gifted & motivated politician. Since before Christmas, he has been running from here to there – in fact, across the whole of Salford. His mission, or part of it, was to provide this City with a full selection of UKIP Candidates; so that in each contest, the voter could be allowed a more varied choice. Owen came to me & asked, first, whether I would be interested in standing within Little Hulton. I did agree initially, but then had to decline considering that it was (and is) a target ward; and that I simply do not have the time required to mount a respectable campaign. After this, I was then offered Boothstown & Ellenbrook. I accepted. And so in this way, my candidacy is naught more than a friendly favour to an extremely keen & committed public servant. If, however, I was of the same persuasion about UKIP as I was last year; then at this very moment, I wouldn’t be writing an exposé, but would instead be fighting for election to council. I cannot begin such a fight for a party which I no longer feel inclined to support or even speak fondly of. Below I shall explain why.
Within the nominated ranks of Salford UKIP exist the likes of Greens, Liberal Democrats & Conservatives. I cannot name any names – and I won’t. But what I can say is that the bulk of those nominated to stand for election to council, under UKIP’s name, are former Lib Dem, Conservative councillors & former Green candidates. It has always proven difficult throughout this year, for me, to reconcile such a massive flip of the coin. It is unthinkable that a Green, Conservative or Lib Dem candidate should become a UKIP candidate. The policies of these parties are so greatly opposed that only one motive could be behind such a flip: self-interest. These candidates seek not to help the Salford people, but only to be elected. Particularly the ex-Liberal Democrats whom had lost their seats back in 2012 when Nick Clegg reversed his position on student fees. With a little research (this information is available online, but for it to come from an official UKIP candidate, I thought, might deliver more of a blow) it can even be revealed that some candidate(s) have committed electoral crimes in the past; or more exactly, the theft of registration documents.
This aside, if it can be put aside, I can reveal also that there has been made great efforts to suppress the individual thoughts of our members & candidates. I, for instance, am I supporter of eugenics & am also particularly interested in the ideas of Oswald Mosley & have published two books on Amazon expressing such views. Since their publication, I have been asked to stop my marketing efforts. Is this not a Democracy? For a party which claims not to be made up of career politicians, to censor its member’s thoughts, likes & dislikes, is totally disagreeable & wholly contradictory. The people deserve, inwards & outwards, to know exactly who & what they are voting for. And then, of course, in the typical UKIP fashion, the Salford branch is also riven with infighting. The nomination for Mayor of Salford was contested hotly; and divisions have sprung out of it. Now, some members – even candidates & members of the branch committee – are refusing to cooperate with one another. This is not how a potential government or council should conduct itself. Rather, the business of nominations should be undertaken within the spirit of that “we as a party are seeking the best qualified person for the job. Not the one who simply wants it the most, and for their own ends”. But what I probably despise most, or that at the very least makes me cringe, is the desperate attempts of the Salford branch to dispel its image of being a racist party. I have, for instance, been asked on numerous occasions to invite any black or brown friends that I may have to our meetings in an effort to convey that we are supported by all people; and not just by white people. It is a highly pathetic aspiration. If a political party truly is not a racist party, then it shouldn’t have a problem with having no black people – or, in an alternate case, with having no white people. Rather it should be satisfied with whom it has managed to attract, and be able to see those attracted on the basis of their human spirit & not racial type.
In summary, I am no longer a UKIP supporter. I may be on the ballot in Boothstown & Ellenbrook, but my heart certainly isn’t.
