    GERARD HAS MY FULL SUPPORT AS SOMEONE WITH CREDIBILITY AND THE INTERESTS OF ALL THE PARTY AT HEART AS HE HAS PROVEN TIME AND TIME AGAIN

    Excellent post Darrell. You have done good work over the last three weeks of this torrid affair.

    I would be surprised if Gerard’s first act wasn’t to unilaterally ditch the new logo. If he wants to do this I would suggest that members views should be sought first.

    Dear Darrell Goodliffe
    In regard to Mr Batten’s comments, he is absolutely correct in asserting that if Mr Bolton stays on, many more people will continue to leave UKIP. The very fact that Henry Bolton is still trying to hang onto power shows his absolute disregard for the well-being/survival of the party. I think that he is living in a parallel universe if the thinks that he can tough it out. Donald Trump seems able to survive impossible situations and crises, mostly of his own making, but Henry Bolton is not Donald Trump. He is a minor leader of a minor party, who has ‘bigged up’ his military and police credentials. I was also a member of Thames Valley Police. What rank did he hold and where?

    Regards

    Well done and many Thanks Darrell. One step at a time is required, and the first step is to cleanse the Party of Bolton. The interim leader should be Margot Parker, as her named office would suggest. However Gerard Batten would do very well.

    I would remain a member of UKIP if Batten takes over as leader. I don’t know what game Bolton is playing but I won’t be part of it. He must go.

    Hi
    I don’t know why Henry Bolton is hanging on. He must live in a parallel universe to the rest of us.. The NEC has given him a vote of ‘No Confidence’, so his immediate reaction is to want to get rid of the NEC. He needs a reality check. Members are leaving in droves, including senior members of the party and local constituency committees.

    Mr Bolton says that his private life has nothing to do with his public political life and he may very well be right However the real world doesn’t work like that. If he is seen as shifty and untrustworthy in his private relationships – we don’t need to go into details – people will automatically assume that is how he will conduct himself in office and vote with their feet. PLEASE GET REAL MR BOLTON, NO-ONE WANTS YOU!!!

    […] Batten has this morning also offered his services as interim leader, calling on the NEC to remove Henry as party leader. He is also widely respected within the party […]
