UKIP’s “budget buster” on Farage's dictatorship and his dislike of women


I have to admit to liking each of these people so it is distressing to read in the press of matters which should be dealt with in private. Perhaps some of Nigel Farage's critics are unused to the hurly burly ways of business which is his background and mine. I have certainly found I can debate vigorously with Nigel but I am not aware of ever falling out with him. I even accept that a leader can make mistakes but perhaps some members expect perfection from him but I doubt the critics are always fault-free. If you are a leader making decisions and taking risks, whether in business or politics, you will make errors but I am not sure how any critics suggest that can be avoided. The press has printed reports in the past to suggest that Farage was too attracted to women, but perhaps Marta's opinion is based more on particular situations than the generality. Within UKIP there is a longing for representation at Westminster, but other political movements have achieved a great deal without ever getting a majority in the HoC. One could use the example of the Greens, with a single recent MP and few votes relative to UKIP, but they seem to have captured the entire political class. Readers may chose to dismiss the reported remarks from David Campbell Bannerman as the reaction of a disappointed man. Despite his unwarranted advancement in UKIP and the cash and hard work of members, he let them down on both counts in the hope of a sinecure in the Conservative Party.
