UKIP: The Letter that Nigel Farage didn't want you to see

Click on the letter for a closer look

It is interesting to note that the UKIP party website includes a call to support a campaign for a referendum on EU membership. Farage has also been quick to jump on the bandwagon, especially if he can use the issue to get his face into the press.

But the truth of UKIP's position is slightly different. In private, Farage's office is less than optimistic about the chances of success as a result of any referendum, as this letter, which has been widely distributed to the press, proves.

"Petitions, I may say, are useful for publicising issues and recruiting activists; but, where such a a fundamental policy as rejecting the EU is concerned, there is no prospect whatever of a pro-EU government's accceding to a petition." So there we have it - UKIP does not really believe in its own policies, apparently.

"No prospect whatever" of a referendum achieving anything, according to the office of Nigel Farage MEP. This is another example of the supreme hypocrisy of the UKIP leadership, and one which may prove to be the Fuhrer's downfall.
Could this be why Dan Hannan is seemingly acting as The Judas Goat to Douglas Carswell's Rose Goat? Do they share Farage's view that holding Referenda on The EU is great for publicising oneself and attracting active supporters - one can only assume the three of them wish they had been trusted to participate in The Express campaign which has already attracted 373,000 who say NO to EU Membership, activists and has clearly publicised the issue.
I expect they are a little miffed that despite the attempt they were unable to take over and emasculate The EU Referendum Campaign fronted by Jon Gaunt, James Pryor and Bridget Rowe, nor The Tory Better Off Out Group - was their collective aim to act as The Judas Goat and lead the Campaign to the slaughter for paymasters who fund them well within The EU?
Might it be that they have watched Nikki Sinclaire move forward with her Petition for an In/Out EU Referendum - not only raising the profile of the issue but clearly leaving them floundering as she obtains cross party support and respect as one of the two remaining UKIP MEPs with integrity seeking to Leave-The-EU with some clarity and a refusal to collude with the racist, anti Jewish and violent sexually intollerant claque Nigel Farage befouls British Politics by leading The Pan EU EFD Political Group

(The wisdom of allowing such a poorly written letter to go out over Steve Reed's signature on Farage's behalf  to a constituent must also surely be called into question. May we commend the constituent for their promptly

Let the People Decide
Nigel Farage MEP

There is a growing appetite from the public for a referendum on whether we stay in the EU or opt for a Free Trade deal.

This campaign is all about numbers and all of us can do our bit to help. I know that many branches of UKIP cannot wait to be back on the streets with petition stalls.

If every one of you takes a petition form to your office, club or pub we will be on the road towards millions of signatures. At this level I believe the national press will unable to stop themselves joining in the debate about this country being able to decide its own fate.

This may be a long campaign but, if there are enough of us, the politicians will HAVE to listen.

Clearly Nigel Farage is more than a little confused changing his mind on a regular basis or is it just on the grounds of what he can make out of it?

Wasn't it the 2005 petition Nigel Farage, Mark Croucher and David Lott obtained £250,000 pounds of tax payers' money for and then raised a great deal more from yet never produced a single legitimate petition, never accounted a single penny nor the huge profits from Ashford set up on its back (described by Farage as THE most profitable thing UKIP had ever done) yet less than 15% of the money EVER reached UKIP as confirmed by The Chairman David Bannerman.

Is it really coincidence that Nigel Farage deposited £250,000 in his off shore account, Mark Croucher opened 2 pubs (which due to his utter incompetence went belly up) and David Lott relocated via Romsey to France where he would pay less taxes and £1/4Million was paid out by Ashford and deposited into a private bank account.

Indeed Farage does seem ambivalent on the matter of Referenda and Petitions and sadly it does look as if that is based upon corruption rather than political wisdom or leadership - skills he has been proven time and again to lack.supplying the letter so that it could be made public!)
