Viagra-Row Kipper to Give Speech on Impotence Tonight

BILL ETHERIDGE

A limp attempt at an apology from UKIP leadership candidate Bill Etheridge after his alleged infidelity and Viagra use was publicly exposed by his missus. Instead of showing a stiff upper lip, Bill is purple with rage and is calling the cops on his partner. It’ll never stand up in court…

He also says he will be giving a speech on impotence tonight:

“At the end of the day, this is a very personal issue and the posting of this on social media is in my opinion a serious breech of my privacy. That is why I have reported this matter to the police.”

“However, if my experiences does help to raise awareness and help make normative a treatment for this serious men’s health issue, then I’m happy to speak out.”

“That is why I will be making a speech on this issue tonight at the UKIP leadership hustings in Belfast.”

A bona-fide PR flop.

UKIP Leadership Contender Accused of Cheating After Fiancee Finds Viagra

BILL ETHERIDGE

The fiancee of one of UKIP’s leadership candidates has accused him of cheating after she found a half empty box of Viagra in his car. MEP Bill Etheridge’s partner Lorraine Chew last night called him a “dirty disgusting cheat” when she found this half-empty packet of little blue pills:

Just a few days ago Etheridge had tweeted to apologise to his fiancee for “neglecting” her:

It all kicked off at UKIP’s leadership hustings last night when, according to multiple witnesses, a senior UKIP activist “started screaming and shouting” at a rival camp, accusing them of re-tweeting the above image. UKIP HQ then sent messages to all involved asking them to delete their tweets about the matter because they want “a fair and decent fight”.

Woolfe Claims UKIP Plot as Cops Say He Faces No Further Action

woolfe2

Remember the curiously-timed revelation that Steven Woolfe was once nicked for being drunk in charge of a scooter? Well, a member of the public – surely not a rival ‘Kipper – called the cops and complained that he had broken the law again by failing to declare his conviction when he ran as a Police and Crime Commissioner. Greater Manchester Police have seen sense and told the complainant to stop being so silly, confirming he faces no further action. Woolfe says it was part of a plot:

“This was one of several attempts by political opponents, using information on UKIP databases, to damage my reputation and ensure I could not stand as party leader.”

Someone certainly has it in for him…

UKIP NEC Quitters Unresign

ukip leadership 2016

Remember those UKIP NEC members who quit in protest at Steven Woolfe being kept off the ballot? Well, they’re unresigning. Victoria Ayling and Mike McGough, who backed Woolfe in the dispute, angrily resigned from the NEC last week. Yet an email sent by party chairman Paul Oakden today says:

“Victoria Ayling has now confirmed to me that she has decided to withdraw her resignation from the NEC. As such, she should now be included in all future NEC correspondence.”

And McGough could follow suit:

“I have also spoken to Mick McGough who understands that he is still a member of the NEC, and who has said he will confirm his intentions with regard to his potential resignation by the end of the week. He too should be included in all future NEC correspondence until he has confirmed his decision to me.”

Important for the Farage faction to have as much NEC support as they can get. So they’ve taken a leaf out of his book…

Faragists Secure Numbers to Call EGM

ukip leadership 2016

An update on the UKIP situation: allies of Nigel Farage and Steven Woolfe say they have secured the 80 branches required to call an Extraordinary General Meeting. That is enough for a vote to take place on abolishing the NEC. The EGM organisers are now working to get over 100 branches as they are worried the NEC will use technicalities to dismiss the support of some of them. Last week Guido told you to keep an eye on Diane James – today key Farage ally Arron Banks has sent several tweets in support of her bid for leader. The counter-coup is bubbling away…

Leaked Messages Reveal Conflicts of Interest in UKIP NEC

ukip leadership 2016

Five members of the UKIP NEC which voted to block Steven Woolfe from the ballot had potential conflicts of interest, leaked messages reveal. Woolfe was barred from standing by an NEC majority of 9-3. Among those who voted were Rob McWhirter, who Guido can reveal previously endorsed Lisa Duffy on a private UKIP discussion forum. On 13 July, McWhiter wrote:

“I have just posted my form assenting to her candidacy”

Another NEC voter, John Bickley, also previously posted on the UKIP forum that he is backing Duffy. He wrote on 10 July:

“She will be a very good candidate.”

The vote to stop Woolfe, Duffy’s main rival, took place three weeks later…

A third NEC voter was Alan Bown, who Lisa Duffy has publicly confirmed is her main financial backer. A fourth, Adrianne Smythe, later admitted in an email to UKIP’s lawyers that she was conflicted because “I have assented for one of the candidates”. Douglas Carswell says he doesn’t have a dog in the fight though obviously he’s not a fan of Farage, who wanted Woolfe to win. Allies of Steven Woolfe say this is evidence the NEC vote was a sham and are considering a legal challenge…

UKIP NEC Member Compares Faragists to Nazis

Screen Shot 2016-08-08 at 09.43.31

UKIP’s civil war has kicked off again this morning with a leading member of the party’s NEC comparing Team Farage to Nazi propagandists. John Bickley, part of the NEC which blocked Steven Woolfe from standing, says claims by Faragists that Woolfe was stitched up are “pure Goebbels”. He offers some further calming rhetoric, including that Farage’s allies are “insane” and come from “the conspiracy theorist wing of the party”. It must have been a coincidence that Woolfe’s 14 year-old driving offence was briefed to the press at the height of the leadership contest. UKIP are being very UKIPpy at the moment…

UKIP EGM Imminent

ukip leadership 2016

Allies of Nigel Farage and Steven Woolfe believe they have the numbers to call an Extraordinary General Meeting and attempt to abolish UKIP’s NEC. They need 25% of UKIP branches to vote for an EGM for one to be called. Since Woolfe was the favourite among members before he was blocked from the ballot that shouldn’t be a problem.[…]
