“Politically Correct Twaddle” – Batten SLAMS Departing Jones
Caroline Jones AM departed the Party yesterday citing concerns over a shift in position to the ‘far-right’ under Gerard Batten. However, her departure was met with derision not just from the UKIP leader himself who slammed her “politically correct twaddle” but also former colleagues in the Welsh Party.
The former leader of UKIP in Wales, who she ousted before herself being replaced by Gareth Bennett AM, wrote on UKIP Daily that “sadly her ego outstrips her ability”. He continued to say that she was a “cuckoo in UKIP’s nest”. It is clear that her resignation, far from being one that was the product of a principled political difference, is an opportunist chance to jump ship following a series of events that have not gone her way in the Party.
In the BBC report of the resignation, she makes extensive complaints about the leadership election in which she was deposed. Unbelievably she cited the extension of the franchise to all Party members in Wales as a key factor making it “”shambolic from beginning to end”.
Mr Batten commented: “Her statement is politically correct twaddle to disguise the fact that Mrs Jones is politically ineffective. I wish her well languishing in the outer realms of irrelevance.”
Gareth Bennett AM told the BBC that he is “supremely confident” the remaining AMs will cohere into a solid group.
