Dave Meets UKIP

Guido is very hungover after last night’s Speccie bash. It was very hot and there was a lot of Pimms involved, also an inexplicable number of pretty models there…

Sadly no Miliband this year, instead it was Harman’s turn to pretend she wanted to be there. Osborne took a couple of hours off from preparing for the Budget while Michael Fallon was bullish about the jihadis. Liz Truss was flirty and Nicky Morgan wandered around looking for someone to talk to. Boris was banging on about some airport…

Most amusing was the PM’s drive by, where he immediately got locked into conversation with UKIP spin supremo Gawain Towler. Apparently Dave’s defence was that the smaller European nations are going to support his renegotiation plans. There are about four million reasons why that conversation looked painful. 

Despite the heat the PM’s old pal Steve Hilton got a proper hug, though the hippy chat was soon troubling Dave:

UKIP Introduces Foreigner Fee For Party Conference

The invitation arrives for journalists to attend UKIP conference in the autumn:
“There will be free registration prior to the 14th of September 2015, afterwards there will be a charge of £500 per person. However, please note if you are from non-domestic media there will be a small charge applied if your application is approved.”
So it’s free, unless you’re Johnny Foreigner…

UKIP Homeless

Cash-strapped UKIP are homeless and senior staff are being forced to work from home after the party was booted out of its plush Mayfair HQ. They will need to find somewhere else where staff will be able to “regularly take their clothes off and compile lists of people they would like to have sex with”.

Speculation centres on the suggestion that the owner of the offices, UKIP donor Andrew Reid, ordered them to move out last week after a bust up over the dire state of the party’s finances.

Despite raking in millions in cushy donations before the election, Guido understands the coffers are bare and multiple sources report that some employees and contractors have not been paid for months.

“Boxes have been packed up and we’re working from home” says a UKIP source, confirming “we’re in the process” of finding a new base. Not easy when you’re broke…

50 Days Later: Hodges Dodges Naked Run

It’s the question on everyone’s lips:

A full 50 days after Dan Hodges lost his bet that UKIP wouldn’t poll above 6%, we still haven’t seen him in his birthday suit.

“I have to fill in a form, and then get synched with a couple of people’s diaries,” Dan protests.

Don’t make Guido dust off his chicken suit…

UKIP ‘On Three Line Whip’ For Farage Book Launch

Guido is off to the pub for the launch of ‘Following Farage‘ by Owen Bennett, which includes such gems as the time the UKIP leader was involved in a coke and hooker shock:

When asked by a friendly American who recognised him in Manhattan, “here, you want some coke?”, Farage replied: “No, no, no, I can’t do any of that”.

The gentleman replied: “OK, tell me your room number, I’m going to send my girl Luscious up to your room!”, to which Nige wisely insisted: “‘No, no, no, I’m OK without Luscious, thanks!”

It also has sit down interviews with Godfrey Bloom, Janice Atkinson and Nige himself, so makes fun holiday reading for ‘Kippers. Its author is truly this generation’s Owen Bennett.

Incidentally, mischevous rumours are going around that UKIP politicians and staff “are on a three line whip” not to attend, though a UKIP source politely insists “everyone’s busy”. At least Owen will be able to pay for a round now…

Thank Evans! Suzanne on Question Time With Blessing of UKIP HQ

su-evans

UKIP sources get in touch to confirm that Suzanne Evans will appear on Question Time tonight with the blessing of the party’s HQ. The infamous email instructing the press office not to accept media bids for Suzanne has been officially withdrawn.

In response to a punchy piece in this week’s Speccie telling the story of UKIP’s internal meltdown, a UKIP source insists there has been a “sea change” in the party’s direction since the recent changes in personnel, and that after last week’s bitter infighting “everyone has calmed down, Suzanne’s happy, Douglas is happy, there’s no more squabbling, no leadership challenge. Everyone’s focussed now”. Farage has tasked his team with “unifying” the party and focussing on the ‘out’ campaign, which he wants to lead. “You will notice a contrast”, sources promise…
