Henry, Dear Henry……
In case you want to know, I voted for Anne Marie Waters
I did so because she is passionate and courageous and has devoted ten years of her life to speaking the truth about a subject no other politician has the b**** to confront. Isn’t that what UKIP is about? Confronting challenges which seek to undermine our society; not to be silenced by a Liberal establishment who ignore the plight of our people in pursuit of a global agenda?
22 bodies strewn across a stadium in Manchester, 8 on London Bridge, 6 at Westminster confirms her claims that we are under attack by an extremist ideology, which wants to destroy our culture. Then there is Rotherham, Rochdale, Oxford, Bristol, Aylesbury, Keighley, Huddersfield, Derby, Peterborough, Telford, which have all finally revealed the sickening abuse of vulnerable white girls by gangs of Muslim men, confirming that whole areas of our nation are beyond the rule of British law and a different culture has taken control
Does supporting her campaign against those who seek to destroy us make me a racist or Nazi, as insinuated by both current and past leader?
I only confirmed my support of AMW on the understanding that her campaign was specifically targeted against the malevolent end of Radical Islam, and that it did not include the Muslim community who embrace our culture and freedoms, respect our law, contribute to society and treat women as equals. The fact that a young Muslim girl was working with her and AMW supports several Muslim women’s groups seemed to suggest she was not lashing out at the Muslim community to me
In the end, at Conference AMW came second and Henry Bolton became our new leader. In the heat of the moment, I was confused. How did an unknown, who declared his nomination at the last minute, come to win?
I had watched HB’s attempt to remove AMW as a candidate during the campaign, and now I was listening to him tell us his appointment had avoided UKIP becoming the Nazi party, I decided my beloved UKIP had lost its strident call, its belief in itself as defender of the ordinary people and speaker of uncomfortable truth. An ex-Lib Dem army/civil servant wallah was now in charge. “No cap on immigration” – Already he was using the language of PC politics. We had hoisted the white flag for fear of being rebranded racists by the Liberal Establishment. We had decided to become the Establishment.
I didn’t bother attending the second day of conference and drove back home to Kent and took the dogs for a walk instead
Then, as ever, I had a rethink.
Why did I join UKIP? Because I wanted my country back. Ok, we won the referendum, but we haven’t won Brexit. Not with Theresa the Appeaser in charge
Nigel has given 20 years taking on the EU and building UKIP to fight it. It is his, and right now it is a vital strand to winning Brexit. All UKIP’s guns need to be fired at the Establishment, who have no intention of abiding by the result of the referendum. Their legions are mighty, including many MP’s, the Governor of the BOE (ex Goldman Sachs) and every self-interested Corporate and Academic
I suspect those MEP’s supporting HB raised their game and campaigned hard to find votes for him, because maybe they calculated we can’t afford for UKIP to be hijacked by AMW’s cause at this defining moment in time. Maybe they are right
So, brave courageous Anne Marie, now is not the moment for UKIP’s next battle as we haven’t won the first. I am really sorry, but your campaign needs to set up its own party or movement and any UKIP member should be free to support it. I will
As for Henry, dear Henry (HDH), I hope there isn’t a hole in your bucket. From Lib Dem to UKIP is hard to imagine. Did you have an epiphany, or did you just join us to provide the political apparatus for your PCC campaign? Many of us in Kent are concerned that we haven’t seen much of you since. Odd that you didn’t join our referendum street stalls, and I haven’t seen you out with our campaign team, despite our many elections. Some would say you are a careerist.
Then again, maybe our Czar of border control will be good at pushing the shambolic government to a border strategy; his CV is littered with it. Indeed, HDH seems to have worked for every taxpayer-funded security/ border quango in the UN and EU at some time in the dim past. Acronyms trip off his lips effortlessly. From outsider Nige, to insider HDH. Maybe it will work.
Nigel, your snarling lip needs some PR. Many of us in UKIP support AMW and believe we are under attack on two fronts, on one side by Juncker and his federal cabal; on the other by Radical Islam. I get it that fighting two fronts will only dilute us to defeat on both. I agree that we need to win the Brexit front first. But calling those who recognise the second front racists may leave you with half your battalion. Have respect for our members; treat AMW with the respect you would have liked when you first set out as a one-man army to take on the EU. HDH’s attack on AMW was that of a playground bully, in fact very Lib Dem. You need to sharpen up your man. An apology to all of us would be a good start
