Diane James New UKIP Leader

diane

Congratulations, Diane was the best woman for the job. Only Labour and the LibDems have never had a female leader…

UPDATE: Guido’s impression of Diane – having spent a little time with her – is that she is for UKIP uncharacteristically level-headed and means business. The drunken pub crawl is definitely not her campaigning style. On the day Nigel resigned I asked her if she was running – she told Guido she was not going to be a candidate. Just as well she changed her mind…

Farage: “We’ve Won the War, Now We Have to Win the Peace”

Nigel Farage tells UKIP conference: “We did it! We got our country back”:

“We’ve brought down a Prime Minister, and got rid of the Chancellor…”

“We’ve won the war, now we have to win the peace…”

Another Top Kipper Defects to Tories

A second top Kipper has defected to the Tories in two days, just as UKIP conference gets underway in Bournemouth. Alexandra Phillips, who used to be an aide to Nigel Farage and was head of media at the party’s HQ, says it is “time to go home”. She tells Guido:

“After watching UKIP tragically turn in on itself for the past year I felt that I had personally and professionally outgrown the party. When Theresa May became Prime Minister and immediately embarked on promoting a policy reintroducing selective education to build social mobility, assenting to explorative fracking for future energy security and approaching Brexit with a pragmatism and determination I find admirable, I knew it was time to go home.”

UKIP having a bit of an existential crisis at the moment…

Top Kipper Defects to Tories Live on Air

Former UKIP party director Steve Stanbury, who has been a major behind the scenes figure for the Kippers for years, has just defected to the Tories live on the Daily Politics. He says UKIP has achieved what it set out to do and the Tories are now best placed to deliver Brexit…

UKIP Conference Choir

UKIP’s party conference in Bournemouth will end with a performance by the “UKIP Choir”. Guido is told that the budding sopranos, altos and tenors will be “multi-ability” – think the sort of against-the-odds transformation from tone deaf to passable that BBC viewers have seen with choirmaster Gareth Malone. A source close to the rehearsals promises: “It will be a sensation”. Beats the Red Flag anyway…

UKIP’s Got Talent

The Daily Politics does UKIP’s Got Talent. Or not, judging by this showing.

New Green Leader Says UKIP are Fascists

New Green co-leader Jonathan Bartley is a complete non-entity, so it was important for him to make a good first impression on today’s Daily Politics. Would the smug former Tory take a more moderate, sensible tone? Nope, he said UKIP are “fascist” and compared them to the Nazis. Now the left is in control of the Labour Party, what is the point of the Greens?

Farage: I’ve Never Taken a Penny From Putin

neera tanden hillary clinton

On Monday top Hillary Clinton aide Neera Tanden sensationally claimed “the Russians” were “directly funding” UKIP. Quite an allegation, and one for which Team Clinton alas offered zero evidence. Nigel Farage has addressed the claim :

Breitbart: “According to her, Nigel, you are a far-right politician funded by the Russians. Is that right?”

Farage: “Hmm. Well, I can’t tell you how touched and thrilled I am that, starting with Hillary, and now one of her acolytes, they’ve chosen to make me a political football in this presidential election… All I can say to her acolyte is that I’ve never taken a penny piece from Mr Putin, so frankly what she’s saying is slanderous, there’s no other way of putting it.”

Now, about those Saudi donations to the Clinton Foundation:

clinton

Bit rich of Saudi-funded Hillary, a “family friend” of Egyptian tyrant Hosni Mubarak, to accuse anyone else of having cosy relationships with foreign despots…

Kippers For Corbyn

Clinton Aide Claims Kremlin Funding UKIP

neera tanden hillary clinton

Team Clinton have continued their attacks on the Breitbart-UKIP nexus, with a top Hillary adviser boldly claiming: “the Russians are openly funding UKIP”. Neera Tanden made the extraordinary allegation in an interview with Politico:

“If you’re in Europe, the Russians are openly funding the far-right groups, from UKIP to Marine Le Pen … There is widespread knowledge among the center-left parties that that is a rising development

“Look at RT, Russia Today.

Hamilton Foresaw UKIP Rival’s Expenses Scandal

Hamilton wondered if “anyone else” mentioned would soon face investigation.[…] Read the rest

Diane James Vows to Sack UKIP Plotters

Diane James is the candidate being pushed by many Faragists behind the scenes, and last night she followed their lead by demanding the party “ditch the NEC”. She also made this stark threat to UKIP plotters:

“There’s going to be no place in UKIP under my leadership for those who have sought or seek to destabilise, destroy or even obstruct what a new constitution will outline for the future governance of this party.

Bill Etheridge Speaks: “It’s Been Hard Times”

UKIP’s Bill Etheridge breaks his silence after his Viagra difficulties earlier in the week:

“It’s been hard, difficult times, people have rounded on me, there’s been attacks on me, and it’s been a tough time to get through. And now people are speculating, especially some of my good friends in the Cambridgeshire area.

No, Nigel Farage Isn’t Applying For German Citizenship

Screen Shot 2016-08-12 at 14.59.07

Twitter got very excited this afternoon after a far-fetched Buzzfeed story claimed Nigel Farage was refusing to deny applying for German citizenship. Guido thought this sounded unlikely so asked his spokesman, who confirms it is “not true”. Obviously. 

UPDATE: A UKIP source adds:

“He was at the embassy in relation to a personal matter.

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.[…] Read the rest
