UKIP leader Nigel Farage is coming under growing pressure to disown Raheem Kassam, described as "totally weird" by former associates, after an article on the Breitbart news website attacked his female deputy accusing her of ‘crying and screaming’ in an astonishingly personal attack
Without UKIP there would be no 2017 EU referendum. But if the Out side wins they could become irrelevant because they "won". If the In side wins they could become irrelevant because they "lost". They need to resolve the paradox, via a massive new push in political ideas, and electoral reform
UKIP, like any other major party, has had major problems about the types that hooked into them. It has cleared house in sacking an alleged criminal. Now, the real politics start. Can the Tories truly meet the UKIP challenge? It won't go away...
Nigel Farage’s right-hand man Raheem Kassam -- under suspicion of multiple criminal offences -- has left the party, along with fellow director Matthew Richardson (who is not suspected of any unlawful conduct)
UKIP now needs to drop the anti-Conservative agenda and fight a more mature battle: to lock out Labour for good. And if that sounds like a strategy designed to help the Tories, well consider this tantalising thought: You Kippers could become the second party in British politics. Ready?
This will drive UKIP supporters up the wall. But the electoral maths, the nature of our system, and the positions of the major parties come together like this: If more British independence from the EU is a priority for you, you've got to vote Conservative on May 7
The mainstream media that has portrayed UKIP as anti-immigrant has spectacularly missed the point. UKIP offers real hope to immigrants in a way that Conservatives and Labour can't understand. Whatever you have heard, many love UKIP's Euroscepticism too, and for good reason
UKIP has been smeared left and right (and by Left and Right). But the party's crazy "Christian Manifesto" is a licence to promote real bigotry and to make the lives of gay people truly miserable. What is UKIP playing at?
The leader of the people’s army has developed a bizarre romance with the US Tea Party, frequently looks tetchy and irritated, and is beginning to lose his once magnetic ability to win voters to UKIP. His comments about HIV have been widely seen as callous and cruel and perhaps a deliberate snub to Douglas Carswell
The disgrace of Cameron disrespecting the British people by not turning up for the election debate was a gift to Nigel Farage. The Left populists were what they were. The MSM didn't get the point that we're fed up with garbage-level debate. It was a panorama of Thick Britain, and the BBC loved its far-Left audience
