Hi Members of UKIP Worthing West. Copy to Head Office and any other interested Parties.
    I thought it was about time I wrote to you and tried to explain my thoughts on  the state of UKIP.
UKIP has been split for some time now with disagreement between followers of the NEC and those of Gerard Batten and Richard Braine. Both Gerard and Richard 
have since resigned from UKIP. 
    Their case has been taken up by an organisation made up of members of UKIP calling themselves "Integrity". This organisation has been proscribed by the NEC and it's supporters are no longer legitimate members of UKIP. 
    I have never believed that pressure groups should exist within a party, either back the Party or form your own! 
My position on this is that both sides bear the responsibility for the falling membership and branch closures, also brought about because many believe BREXiT to have been achieved.
    It is a great pity when branches close, as once closed, they are very difficult to reinstate. 
I do not have any influence with the Hierarchy, but urge you all to "stay calm and carry on". Eventually there will be another leadership election and the problems will be resolved. 
Whether we have achieved the BREXIT we want or not, there is a need for another Mainstream Party. 

Both Labour and Liberal Democrats unless they change are unelectable.

Our Manifesto is very good with sound policies.
UKIP HAS A CHANCE OF BECOMING THE MAIN OPPOSITION AT THE NEXT ELECTION IN 5 YEARS TIME
But only if the squabbling stops NOW So We can start Winning the local elections

Worthing West Is in Danger of Closing Down I urge you all to attend the AGM.

NOTE TO THE NEC AND OTHERS: PULL TOGETHER AND SUCCEED. FOLLOW YOUR OWN AGENDAS AND DIE.
