UKIP what are you actually doing?
Nigel Farage constantly banging on about Theresa May, who by the looks of things seems to be making the best of it and anyone with a ounce of political sense about them knows the EU will never agree to a mutually beneficial deal anyway so a No Deal Brexit is the most likely outcome, so what is to be gained by attacking her.
Henry Bolton supposed to be the new UKIP leader but all he has done is given the clique at the top new job titles and other than that nothing else as changed and he also keeps on attacking May which only shows his political incompetence. If May was to be ousted she would probably be replaced by either Bumbling Boris or Grovelling Grove and hows will that help exactly?
Bill Etheridge is another one, with his new slogan of “We’re not taking your sh1t anymore”. There’s a real vote winner… He actually seems to be running a UKIP Leadership election campaign rather than encouraging Kippers to get out there banging on doors promoting the party ready for Britain After Brexit! It is really sad to see what is going on in UKIP since June 23rd 2016.
Meanwhile, the LibDems are winning seats up and down the country most of them unchallenged by UKIP but even those that are, get disastrous results. LibDems are regaining ground and UKIP aren’t even seeing it happen!

Now I have a lot of friends in UKIP that will be annoyed with me for saying this but that does not make what I am saying any less truthful. The incompetence at the top of UKIP is still the same now as it was when Nigel Farage was the leader and because of that incompetence, the LibDem fightback is actually winning. This is very clear to see by the by-election results right across the country. What they should be doing instead of attacking May on a daily basis is attacking those LibDems, Labour, Greens, etc who wanted to Remain in the EU, because the Libdems are rising in the polls whilst UKIP disappear into oblivion and soon it will become the United Kingdom Insignificant Party and all because of the ones at the top taking their eyes off the ball since June 23rd, 2016, that is an undeniable fact. I personally cannot see that changing which is why we started up a new party called ENGAGE but it is still a shame to see what has become of UKIP and an even greater shame to see so many grassroots activists become so disheartened because of it. So I do hope this is read in the way it is intended, those at the top of the shop in UKIP need to get their act together and those activists within the party need to ensure that happens before the party dies altogether.
In the meantime, we in Engage will continue trying to build a true Direct Democracy party for Britain and will continue to campaign by using common sense and pointing out the truth whether people like that truth or not. I remember making a campaign poster for UKIP back in 2013 it read “We have a totally new way of campaigning, it is called ‘Telling the Truth’ and we will continue on in that vane here in Engage. We have just started a new government petitions to extend the ‘Repeal of MPs Act 2015’ so that those MPs who fail to represent those who have elected them to do so will be held accountable for their actions. Please Sign and Share this petition far and wide.
