Ukip - Is There Any Hope?

One of the complaints about their party, by those within it, is that the administrative ability of Ukip is non-existent - they just don't do 'Admin'.

At the start of the leadership campaign I was asked to sign as an Assentor for Nigel Farage, something that I was quite content to do. Having done so, I do not believe it unreasonable to expect that one's name be included in any article, posted on the Ukip website, listing proposers and assentors.

But, in my view, it is also a tad disingenious to head the article "Who's backing whom.......". In signing as an Assentor, I am purely agreeing to an individual's right to stand as a candidate in that election - it does not necessarily mean that I am voting for him.

End of rant.......................

Either there's a "not" too man in the second paragraph, or the third paragraph should start with "But...".

They don't seem to do anything much. I wish they'd getting their arses into gear.

As a UKIP member I too wish they'd get their act together. Nothing has changed since the election in May - nothing major, at least. And withdrawal from the EU is a prerequisite to reclaiming control over our country and abolishing all the anti-democratic legislation that has been imposed on us over the past 40 or so years.

I've out-pedanted myself there. That should have been "not too many" :-(
