Gale resigns from UKIP

David Gale and Nigel FarageThursday 28th November 2013 – OPEN LETTER TO NIGEL FARAGE

In an open letter to UKIP leader Nigel Farage, David Gale, one of UKIP’s top performing Police & Crime Commissioner candidates, has today announced his resignation from the party.

In a damning indictment of its leadership, Gale accuses UKIP of betraying its supporters in its shift to the right. Gale said, “In many areas of the country, UKIP has been taking more votes from Labour than from the Conservatives, with the UKIP membership in the north focused on a common sense view of policy that is not shared by the ever-increasing number of ex-Tory UKIP candidates favoured by the leadership. What we’re seeing is yet another crony elite riding a wave of public expectation for something different. It’s a deception and it’s a betrayal.”

Going on to list issues with the party’s MEP candidate selection process, as well as its failure to alert members to a middle-aged, convicted paedophile actively engaged with the party’s younger membership, Gale questions the leadership’s professional competence in its running of the party, “Whilst I doubt that it was your intention to model your public persona on Lord Percy, UKIP is beginning to resemble an episode of Blackadder, with candidates presenting as an association of Elizabethan dandies.”

Gale’s announcement comes after a sitting MEP and a number of Lincolnshire councillors were forced out of the party, all citing procedural irregularities by the leadership.

Reports suggest that a large proportion of the UKIP Worcester branch in the West Midlands has resigned en masse, again citing the party’s leadership as being out of touch with its membership.

Gale said, ” I remain deeply respectful of the many genuine grass roots members who aspire to something better for our country but I feel that UKIP’s leadership is deceiving them. I wish the membership all the best.”
