EXCLUSIVE: UKIP Set To Consider Offering Tommy Robinson Party Membership
UKIP’s National Executive Committee (NEC) will this weekend consider giving party members the power to decide if Tommy Robinson should be allowed to join UKIP, Kipper Central can exclusively reveal.
The motion calling for Robinson’s recruitment to the party, which Tommy’s supporters hope will be debated and voted upon at UKIP’s national conference in Birmingham later this month, must first be given the go-ahead by the party’s Chairman – Tony McIntyre, after he has consulted the party’s ruling body, the NEC, this Sunday.
There have been calls to allow Mr Robinson into the party for a number of months, but this is the first time any official motion has been proposed to the party to bring the idea into effect.
Proposed by UKIP’s Family & Children Spokesman – Alan Craig, the motion to be voted on reads: “Conference believes that Tommy Robinson is a global figure who stands in the long English tradition of anti-establishment rebels with a cause from Robin Hood to the Suffragettes; admires his campaigns both for #FreeSpeech and to expose the authorities’ decades-long silence and inaction over the industrial-scale child sexual abuse by rape gangs; and requests the NEC to consider offering him membership of UKIP.”
Craig told Kipper Central: “Tommy has become a global phenomenon representing those who have been excluded and silenced by the globalist liberal elite.
“He courageously turned his back on all racism and the EDL and now campaigns for free speech and on those issues like rape gangs that the authorities want to ignore.
“He’s now a Kipper at heart and we should welcome him.”
It is unclear if Robinson would choose to join UKIP if the party does offer him membership, but the pro-freedom activist has met UKIP leader Gerard Batten on a number of occasions and even told his supporters that he was voting UKIP in local elections earlier this year, giving strong indications that he would take the opportunity.
Seconding the motion is Reece Coombes, the 17-year-old Deputy Chairman of UKIP’s youth wing; Young Independence and the owner of Kipper Central, the platform he used to make the first public call for UKIP to “stop looking backwards and let Tommy Robinson join UKIP”.
If the motion is accepted at UKIP’s conference, it will once again return to the NEC who will have the final say after hearing the voices of the members.
Nathan Ryding, the Chairman of Young Independence, who sits on the UKIP NEC, exclusively told Kipper Central that he will support the motion on Sunday in order to give the members the final say on Mr Robinson’s UKIP membership.
Ryding said: “I have chosen to support this motion as it puts the decision to the members.
“It is impossible for the NEC to know how all the members feel about this particular issue, and regardless of personal opinion, I believe it is only right that the members decide.”
