UKIP Candidate Quits Over Galloway, ‘Pope’ Farage

ukipper-quits
Chris Gillibrand, UKIP’s candidate in Ogmore for the Assembly Elections, has resigned citing the decision of Nigel Farage to share a platform with George Galloway.  Gillibrand says he

“… cannot begin to comprehend the motives for Mr Farage to share a platform with George Galloway.   His views are well known and available to anyone who has access to the internet.   Mr Farage has presumed on the support of people who admire the fluidity of his rhetoric and understand that Mr Cameron would never have given the British people the referendum without the pressure from outside the Conservative Party.  He is rapidly exhausting his political credit with the grass roots. To appear on the platform, he now must consider himself irreproachable but those that want to leave the EU have no need of a Pope.   They need rather a team and a chorus.  It is noticeable that we are not hearing the voices of the MEPs in the independence campaign …… have they also been coerced into silence?”

There does seem to be an internal UKIP tussle going on at the moment, many MEPs do appear to be keeping their head down. Guido can’t help thinking that they should be focusing on winning people over to the Brexit cause…
