With what will hopefully be the defining moment for UKIP’s failing leadership and the dismissal of a new “Draft” constitution, this week has been a busy one.
Whilst we were all busy organising ourselves, members and transport for tomorrows crunch EGM, the social media jungle drums brought my suspension as a long-standing party member into doubt.
I was contacted via different social media platforms at the beginning of the week by concerned members who had been informed the party had suspended me.
“This is the first I’ve heard of it” was my reply.
Following a very short investigation, it appeared that a member of the NEC had presented a complaint against me for bringing the party into disrepute.
At no point had I been contacted by a party official or even been given the opportunity to hear the claim and offer up my defence. The accuser presented the complaint to NEC members by way of email asking for them support the complaint and suspend me from the party.
It was only due to the diligence and feelings of injustice by many of the NEC members that the complaint fell and was unable to progress, however, I wasn’t informed of this and still had members from the party asking if I had in fact been suspended.
Following a brief but, constructive telephone conversation with the current Party Chairman, I was advised that I had not been suspended.
I’m still none the wiser who made the complaint but, using powers of deduction coupled with recent conversions with leading Team Bolton Henchmen, there can be only one culprit who sees myself as an issue and wants to bring an end to any libertarian involvement with what is a libertarian party.
We can clearly deduce from the leaders “Draft” constitution, littered with spelling errors and power grabs that if retained, he doesn’t want any real member engagement. The document would be better suited for use in North Korea along with his leadership style.
For me, politics is all about debate; from the debate you create the best possible outcomes for all.
Party leadership is about embracing debate, engaging talent, utilising support and galvanising membership behind key messages whilst resonating with the general populous; none of which has been achieved by Henry Bolton during his reign of failure.
I want to be part of a libertarian party which embraces discussion, not shut it down at every opportunity.
We are a free-thinking, free-speech party, always willing to challenge the politically correct culture of this country and are very different from any other mainstream political party in this country.
Henry Bolton is forcing a wage and dictator status by way of subversion. Let’s do the right thing, seize this moment as an opportunity and right the wrong, removing him today at the EGM.
