EXCLUSIVE: Gerard Batten’s New UKIP Spokesmen Revealed

Reece Coombes

As a 16-year-old member of UKIP with a cardboard Nigel Farage cut-out in his bedroom, Reece is hardly your bog-standard student, but he cherishes his independent thinking as his greatest strength. Reece is the founder and owner of Kipper Central, a UKIP community blog with thousands of daily hits and is also the Deputy Chairman of Young Independence, UKIP's youth wing, where he works hard to promote Brexit and radical thinking to young people across Britain.

      True, Joy. Nor speakers on Housing, Environment and Welfare. Not to detract from the scoop of Reece and him being quick off the mark (great work.)

    All these spokespeople positions are largely unnecessary as we seldom hear from any of them. They are the spokespersons that never speak or if they do it is not done in the right way.
    We desperately want party representatives that can capture the mood of all those that are now politically homeless.
    Brexit is way beyond the influence of UKIP and we must concentrate on new policy initiatives if we are to have any impact on the electorate.
    Far too many of our MEPs are swanning around in Brussels when they should be at home banging the drum.
    I had hoped to see Gerard Batten centre stage talking about the issues of the day on Daily Politics, Sky News and social media but it seems he has got bogged down in back office concerns.
    It only requires one or two loud and impassioned voices to shake the party out of its doldrums but with each passing day we seem to wait in vain.

    Why is an interim administration appointing spokesmen on even this scale I ask myself. It looks for all the world as if Batten’s continuation in the leader’s seat has been somehow assured and that this is all part of a move to shore up his position. UKIP needs only two things at the moment; money and a new leader capable of raising it and saving us from 0%.

    Hi All. I’m not a new member of the party, I’ve been a member for 13 years!!!

    OK ! So now we have the heads of ‘ministries’ for our Party, which is fine and dandy !
    I look forward to a coming together of the several voices that proclaim a clean Brexit, under a UKIP heading. For instance the group calling itself ‘Labour Leave’ is about to produce a weekly blog, and there are some others. I would not suggest for a moment that they all need to become Kippers, but some sharing could be useful on such an important issue where we are all of one mind. Our voice would be louder together ! Might be worth checking on.

    Just a word to the author of this article. It is peppered with a totally uncalled for sneering tone towards a former leader of UKIP. I am sure the wider membership at large, can all do without the cheap red top smeary name calling with references to him prefaced with infamous & disgraced. I seem to recall that the vote amongst those who actually made it to the EGM was far from unanimous. So you are not just sneering at Henry Bolton with this pathetic narrative, but at least a third or more of the membership who just happen to hold a different viewpoint to you, about what the best way forward for UKIP was. The matter is settled, so maybe some reflection on your future choice of words would be most unhelpful. It is not only disrespectful & insulting to Henry Bolton, but to every other member who just does not happen to share your opinion of him. I doubt even his detractors amongst the membership, would deny his record of public service to this country. You do us all & yourself no favours by casually denigrating the man in the way you do on here. It is just as misguided as the foolish people who, in pusuit of their objective, damaged us all by turning up at the EGM with placards calling him a racist, in full view of the assembled media.

    EGM 17th Feb, New leader in 90 days. Only 59 days left and Gerard’s gone. Maybe this list is short lived.

  8. Ian Williams says:

    John I totally agree with you on that! We have to grow up as a party and stop childish distractions.
    We certainly get more damage from within than we do from the outside. We members doing the medias job for them.
    Still a bit perturbed that as yet nothing has come out on the leadership election!

  9. Mike Gascoigne says:

    It’s a bit quiet now because a load of people are slipping the clutch, waiting for the green light.
