Cars-Wars: Nigel Hits Back

“He’s been having a go at me every single day since the General Election. It’s just that he’s been doing it in private, briefing members, officials or the press or anyone who cares to listen… He’s trying to sow division where none exists… Douglas frankly must put up or shut-up.”

Good will to all men, except in UKIP…

Carswell: “We Need a Fresh Face”

Douglas scorns “Let me put it another way I don’t want to wake up the morning after the European Referendum and hear it was the postal votes.” He says that if UKIP becomes an “optimistic, sunshine, smiley, socially liberal, unapologetically free market party – we will break out from the 13%, we will break out from being the also-rans in Oldham to being the winner…”

Nigel says he’s relieved that Douglas is now saying in public what he has been saying in private and he has the support “91.4% of the UKIP membership”…

Crappy Xmas: UKIP’s Purple Santa

Carswell Unveils Labour’s New Social Media Code of Conduct

fds

Readers will be aware that Labour have been busy devising a new code of conduct for social media, hushing up party members and MPs who are critical of Jeremy Corbyn online. Just what the code of conduct will stipulate has been subject to fevered speculation, including from UKIP’s sole MP Douglas Carswell, who has chipped in with his own advice for those drafting the guidelines:

1. Do remember that in the new politics the party whips are much more relaxed – so always tweet on message

2. Don’t be disrespectful to others – unless you’re referring to Simon Danczuk or Tristram or Blair. Or anyone not in Momentum.

3. Don’t use hate speech – unless you’re talking about #Toryscum. Remember someone need not be a Tory to be #ToryScum

4. Do broadcast your support for foreign terrorist groups – especially if you’re a party spin doctor

5. Do express your opposition to evil multinationals using an Apple, Samsung, or Sony device, and where possible free Wifi provided by Starbucks

6. Do use Facebook to complain about how Facebook doesn’t pay enough tax

7. Should you lose a debate or election among real voters, do retreat into your Twitter timeline to have your prejudices reinforced.

8. Jeremy Corbyn is the New Politics – so do not disagree

9. Don’t forget that in the new politics likes are more important than votes

10. Use a hashtag to signal your virtue and differentiate you from #ToryScum

Such mockery is so old politics…

UKIP’s Scathing Attack on “Ludicrous” Prince Charles

UKIP certainly ain’t holding back with their response to Prince Charles boring on about terrorism being caused by climate change. This is the statement put out by their spokesman tonight, describing the future king as “frankly ludicrous“:

“Prince Charles will likely fly once again by private jet to Paris and be picked up by a convoy of gas guzzling motorcars in order to preach about cutting carbon emissions. At the start of this year he and Camilla were hosted by the Saudi Royal Family to use his special relationship with the monarchy to promote British interests. Perhaps he will use those connections to encourage the oil rich Gulf states to help tackle the threat from Islamic extremism and play their part in helping refugees in the region. Links between terror cells in Saudi Arabia and Islamic State are well established, and it is documented that a vast amount of funding for extremism is also coming from inside Saudi Arabia. Rather than make frankly ludicrous comments about climate change leading to Middle Eastern conflict, he actually has the right connections to say and do something useful.”

They gotta point…

UKIP’s Financial Woes Worsen

party donations

The financial woes of cash-strapped UKIP have been doing the rounds for a while, and now we know why. The party took just £49,334 in donations in the last quarter, as Arron Banks’ money goes towards the Leave.EU campaign instead. Insiders tell Guido that the party still owes Facebook £80,000 for advertising during the election and they haven’t got the money to pay. Staff have been sacked as economies have had to be made. Not good news with UKIP trying to run Labour close in the Oldham by-election…

Farage: Free Movement of People Means Free Movement of Jihadis

Around 1,000 people watched Nigel Farage’s Basingstoke speech on the Paris attacks last night, which was punchy even for him. The UKIP leader wasted no time in immediately declaring to rapturous applause:

“there is a problem with some of the Muslim community in this country… We have a fifth column that we have welcomed in…”

Farage then mocked Cameron’s demands for EU reform as reminiscent of Chamberlain’s Munich Agreement, going as far as to wave a piece of paper around. Yesterday Guido noted how Nigel had a point when he predicted ISIS would pose as refugees, last night he went further:

“The warnings were pretty clear… ISIS said they would use the migrant tide to flood the EU with half a million jihadists… I would suggest 5000 is too many… 500 is too many… it only took eight to cause that destruction in Paris the other night… This dream of the free movement of people, this dream for others of the Schengen area. It hasn’t just meant the free movement of people, it has meant the free movement of Kalashnikov rifles. It has meant the free movement of terrorists, and it has meant the free movement of jihadists.”

Guido was rather surprised when he went to the bar for a post-speech pint with a co-conspirator, only to be told UKIP had requested they didn’t serve alcohol…

Flashback: Farage Predicts ISIS Will Pose As Refugees

Readers may remember Nigel Farage warning the European Parliament back in April that ISIS could sneak terrorists into Europe posing as refugees. His speech was roundly condemned at the time.

There is a real and genuine threat. When Isis say they want to flood our continent with half a million Islamic extremists, they mean it.

Quote of the Day

David Cowling, the BBC’s head of political research, in an internal memo…

“It seems to me that the London bubble has to burst if there is to be any prospect of addressing the issues that have brought us to our current situation. There are many millions of people in the UK who do not enthuse about diversity and do not embrace metropolitan values yet do not consider themselves lesser human beings for all that. Until their values and opinions are acknowledged and respected, rather than ignored and despised, our present discord will persist. Because these discontents run very wide and very deep and the metropolitan political class, confronted by them, seems completely bewildered and at a loss about how to respond (“who are these ghastly people and where do they come from?” doesn’t really hack it). The 2016 EU referendum has witnessed the cashing in of some very bitter bankable grudges but I believe that, throughout this 2016 campaign, Europe has been the shadow not the substance.”
