Is UKIP Finally Finished?

MEPs resigning the whip, councillors going independent, membership despairing and disappearing – this weekend could be the end of UKIP. The UKIP NEC is meeting to decide the fate of their beleagured leader Henry Bolton. He is appearing on Peston for a potentially last interview as leader on Sunday…

UKIP have been counted out many times without being knocked-out. Is this the final count for the single issue party soon to be without an issue?

UKIP’s Walker Offered £30,000 ‘Bribe’ To Bolton for Party Chairmanship

A critic of embattled UKIP chief Henry Bolton offered the troubled leader half the party chairman’s salary*if he appointed him to the position, Guido can reveal. Embattled Bolton received former leadership candidate Walker’s offer in an exchange of messages last month. Walker said: “I’m happy to do this job and split the money with you… you need a wage and I want to support you” (Bolton is famously doing the leader’s job unwaged). Bolton replied: “that sounds like bribery”…

Walker withdrew from the UKIP leadership election last August after he was promised the chairmanship on Jane Collins’ ticket; they came second to last with 4.4% of the vote. Sources have blamed Walker for launching a campaign to undermine Bolton and the party both internally and in the media, which he denies. Walker is on a ‘task force’ dedicated to ousting Bolton, and suggested this week UKIP should be wound-up. Walker told Guido:

“I have always been supportive of Henry until the affair broke. Lying to the membership is a big deal and he should go. I completely deny working to undermine him. There is no organised coup.”

UKIP, always entertaining…

*Sources say the chairman is paid between £60,000 to £75,000.

Bolton: She Came Round But I Didn’t Sleep With Her

UKIP sources confirm Guido’s story: Henry Bolton and Jo Marney did go home together after their loved-up dinner last night. It is claimed Marney came back to the leader’s Fokestone flat only to collect her bags. So keen is Henry Bolton to prove this that he ran out to a local taxi firm this morning and took a picture of the taxi log detailing Marney’s cab back to Maidstone. Poor bloke, gets the girl all the way back home but no action…

Bolton’s Night With ‘Ex’ Jo Marney Ends With Love Train Home

This is the moment embattled UKIP chief Henry Bolton pledged to stand by his racist texts storm ex during an intimate dinner at a posh gentlemen’s club. In pictures obtained by Guido, the pair are seen dining together last night; hours earlier Mr Bolton declared his continuing love for the 25-year-old model in a newspaper interview – despite having publicly dumped her this week. An eyewitness to the tête-à-tête said:

“They were holding hands and touching in a manner suggestive that they were very much still together. They drank at the bar, Henry was making his support for Jo very clear.”

On leaving, the pair were doorstepped. Mr Bolton claimed:

“She’s now going back to Maidstone and I’m now going back home.”

But Guido can reveal Mr Bolton was later seen with Jo on the platform at Folkestone West station, the town where the UKIP boss has a flat. Perhaps she missed her stop…

Last night Kippers were furious at the thought Mr Bolton could u-turn on his decision to end the relationship. A senior UKIP source told Guido:

“Henry Bolton has killed the party”

Sunday’s crunch UKIP NEC meeting just got even more interesting…

Bolton Dumps Marney to Cling On To UKIP Leadership

Henry Bolton has broken-up with his 25-year-old blonde bombshell model girlfriend in order to try to cling on as UKIP leader. He announced the decision on the media round this morning after MEPs and party bosses hinted yesterday he should either end the relationship or stand down. In a bizarre interview with John Humphrys, Bolton admitted he had been “rumbled”. More messages from Marney emerged overnight where she “joked” about raping a baby and said refugees would “f*** a mangey dog for about 10 quid and a big mac”. Bolton vowed he won’t resign and defended Marney saying: “people have thrown her to the wolves to attack me”. How long can he last?

Pressure on UKIP’s Bolton to Quit or Dump Jo Marney

Pressure building on badger-chasing UKIP leader Henry Bolton after the Mail on Sunday splashed racist messages about Meghan Markle from his new girlfriend Jo Marney. UKIP Chairman Paul Oakden told the Sunday Politics Bolton has “difficult decisions to make”, signalling he should either resign or dump the 25-year-old topless model. Meanwhile, UKIP MEP Bill Etheridge has called for Bolton to resign. Which would you choose?

U-Strip: Meet UKIP Leader’s New Girlfriend

New UKIP leader Henry Bolton has left his wife for a topless model almost half his age. The Sun reveals the married Bolton wanderer, 54, is in a relationship with self-described Brexiteer Jo Marney, 29. They are understood to have spent Boxing Day together. Bolton tried to spoil the story with a pre-emptive statement but merely alerted the Mail, guaranteeing it made the front page of two papers. His spokesman said his wife is aware and is now living abroad…

By far the most interesting thing Bolton has done since becoming leader. It’s always the quiet ones…

Electoral Commission Investigating Banks

The Electoral Commission says it is investigating Arron Banks in relation to donations and loans made during the referendum, specifically looking at Better for the Country Limited, the second largest donor to any of the referendum campaigns, which gave a total of £2,359,842.76 to a variety of leave-backing groups including Grassroots Out and UKIP. Banks is a director of Better for the Country Limited. The Commission described the scope of the probe:

Whether or not Better for the Country Limited was the true source of donations made to referendum campaigners in its name, or if it was acting as an agent. Whether the recipients of its donations were given the information required by PPERA in respect of the donor. What steps the recipients took to verify the identity and permissibility of Better for the Country Limited as a donor. Whether or not Mr Banks was the true source of loans reported by a referendum campaigner in his name. Whether those individuals and entities involved in that arrangement acted in accordance with PPERA. Whether any individual facilitated a transaction with a non-qualifying person.”

Looking for Roubles?

Banks has responded to the news characteristically, “Gosh I’m terrified”. The real problem for Banks is that he is currently trying to float other interests on the stock exchange. He won’t want a quasi-judicial investigation hanging over him…

European Council Orders 4,000 Bottles of Champagne on the Taxpayer

The European Council has put out a tender for 4,000 bottles of champagne with the bill charged to the taxpayer. UKIP MEP Jonathan Bullock challenged the splurge during a plenary debate at the European Parliament in Strasbourg on Tuesday night. Bullock said:

“The Council put out a public tender for 4,000 bottles of champagne. Perhaps we could in Britain could have our share of that, I think it works out about 500 bottles by our budget contribution, to celebrate Brexit. We’d even share for 148 bottles if we divided equally between the countries… but seriously when half of Europe is in crisis with austerity biting, you are ordering 4,000 bottles of champagne.”

The European Council is an EU body comprising of the heads of state or government of member states. It is not required to have its accounts approved by the European Parliament. Raise a toast to Brexit…

Henry Bolton New UKIP Leader

The Farageist candidate Henry Bolton is the surprise winner. Anne-Marie Waters in second. Peter Whittle in fifth! Shock result…

UKIP Leadership Announcement LIVE

Anne-Marie Waters: I’m Prepared For Exodus If I Win

Guido found Anne-Marie Waters hiding out with staff at a cafe outside UKIP’s conference in Torquay. She had not been seen inside the conference centre all day. Asked how she would deal with a mass exodus from the party if she wins the leadership she said:

“We’ll see if there is one, let’s see what happens… I don’t see how they come to the conclusion that criticising a religion, a religion that’s responsible for misery and suffering around the world, will never be racist.”

Spoiler alert: there will be an exodus if she wins…

Punters Make Whittle Favourite to Beat Waters

UKIP will announce the winner of their leadership election this evening at their party conference. Most people think it has boiled down to a two-horse race, overnight betting has seen Peter Whittle become favourite (4/5) and Anne-Marie Waters move out to second favourite (5/4). Has something leaked from the Electoral Reform Society’s counting room?

This is an existential vote for UKIP, former leader Nigel Farage says the party is finished if anti-Islam Waters wins. Most of the MEPs say they will go independent and party officials tell Guido they will quit as well. We’ll know if the party is over in a few hours...

UKIP Nick Premier League’s Purple Lion

Over at their conference in Torquay UKIP members have this choice for their next party logo. Football fans are pointing out that the lion logo on the left is a clear rip off of the Premier League’s emblem. The Premier League lion is even purple…

One for the lawyers…

Is UKIP Finished?

If Anne Marie Waters wins Nigel Farage says UKIP is finished and there is no future for UKIP if it is led by her. With most of the votes in and the count due on Friday her noisy supporters on social media are convincing themselves she will win. The bookies agree. Calling UKIP sources who are usually in the know it is clear no one really knows. Did her recently joined UKIP supporters register in time to vote? Do most ‘Kippers pay any attention to social media? 

Guido has a hunch that Peter Whittle will win. Arron Banks’ Leave.EU has backed David Kurten. There is a surprisingly long list of candidates. The threat by the UKIP MEPs to resign en masse if Anne Marie Waters wins will surely have been noticed by ordinary members. If Anti-Sharia Anne Marie wins the UKIP rebrand at their conference this weekend will be colourful…

UKIP Leadership Candidate: We’re In Danger of Becoming Nazis

UKIP leadership candidate Henry Bolton is not a star name but he has boosted his profile in the party during this year’s contest and has won a lot of support from members. Bolton says he’s the Farageist candidate and counts Nigel as one of his supporters. Today he has issued a fairly extraordinary statement warning that if Anne Marie Waters (who he doesn’t name) becomes leader then UKIP could become “the UK Nazi Party”. It’s strong stuff…

“Under the wrong leadership, we could see a swing away from our traditional, secular values and stances; towards something far darker… we could easily slip towards the ideals of National Socialism. The last thing UKIP needs is to become the UK Nazi Party… In my opinion, using broad brushstrokes of ignorance to target and denounce one group within the UK population is absolutely wrong. In fact, it’s very reminiscent of the policies invoked under both fascist and communist regimes during the 20th century… Frankly, seeking to blame one section of our community for society’s ills is not patriotism; it’s a form of totalitarianism that goes against everything UKIP as a political force has ever achieved. UKIP was set up to fight the ‘totalitarian’ effects of EU influence on British society. Therefore, I will not sit back and watch the party be hijacked by those who seek to now seize on our success to drive forward their own agenda.”

Kippers starting to seriously worry about what becomes of their party if Waters pulls off an upset…

Quote of the Day

Tory MP Nick Boles says what everyone thinks…

“There is a timidity and lack of ambition about Mrs May’s Government which means it constantly disappoints. Time to raise your game, Prime Minister.”
