UKIP Or EUKIP?



Nikki Sinclaire MEP UKIP West Midlands has fallen out with UKIP over the Party's membership and leadership of the Freedom & Democracy Group in the European Parliament.

In her resignation letter, she said:

I have found it increasingly difficult to justify sitting alongside one or two of the European parties within the Europe of Freedom and Democracy Group who have a variety of extremist views which includes anti-Semitism, violence and the espousal of a single European policy on immigration.

If NIkki is right, UKIP are members and leaders of a grouping that campaigns for a Europe-wide policy on immigration.

A Party that stands for British withdrawal should not have any EU-federalist policies, but UKIP does.

Here is more evidence that UKIP's change of emphasis onto an anti-Islamist platform, implies a reduction in the UK-EU withdrawal platform, to the extent that in the EP,UKIP is openly federalist.

They should be rebadged 'EUKIP'. It would be more honest.

EUKIP even has openly federalist MEPs, for example Marta Andreasen, the resigned Party Treasury, MEP South East, alongside Farage. Farage knew she was a federalist when he recruited her.

EARLIER - Farage poses with West Midlands UKIP lead candidates for the Euro elections. EUKIP made history winning two seats in the West Midlands, while Labour and Conservative only managed 1 each. But since then disillusion has set in for Nikki Sinclaire.

All the parties have affiliations with "strange bedfellows" in the EU, including the Tories!

"If NIkki is right, UKIP are members and leaders of a grouping that campaigns for a Europe-wide policy on immigration"

So what?

"A Party that stands for British withdrawal should not have any EU-federalist policies, but UKIP does".

Why? What are they meant to do, sit there like lemons? We were forced into becoming part of the EU, now that are there, we have as much right to say as anyone else!

Being anti Islamist is actually quite common, its happeing all over Europe, or didn't you notice?

Ah yes, Miss Andreasen, the young lady that exposed the EU accounting system for the sham that it is.....oh yes, an enemy of the state....

The Tories are definitely worried :) you're going to have to try harder than that to win the grass root Tories back!

Miss A resigned as UKIP Treasurer. I'm all for having policies, but what worries me is the abandonment of the withdraw from the EU primary policy, and the running of electoral strategy which excludes eurosceptics from Westminster.

Unless UKIP wants the Euro as a currency which labour would impose if re-elected, it would make sense to fight for Buckingham and precious little else.

UKIP's tragedy is lack of strategy.

Only money keeps UKIP in the FD grouping. MOney should come below the cause in my opinion.

That makes me suspicious of UKIP leadership's motives. Who actually runs the party? Are they planted?
