UKIP; undemocratic, disorganised and incoherent
The UK’s United Kingdom Independence Party (UKIP) has had a series of e-mails leaked to the press which has shown them to be undemocratic by not listening to their grassroots members and disorganised and incoherent when it comes to policy.
Just five days before the local elections e-mails involving top UKIP members reveals a real lack of policy in what the Guardian calls chaos.
Here’s some of the UKIP e-mails:
‘It would appear Ukip has more military and naval experts than we have soldiers. Most of them do not agree with each other. It is like herding cats.’
‘We are also attracting new members who bring main party ‘baggage’. Focus groups, quotas, even political correctness. We must be wary of listening to these siren voices. We did not get where we are today by following, but leading.’
‘We do not have the resources to write serious papers on major subjects, why reinvent the wheel? Why not buy policy ‘off the shelf’, where it is close to our own small government, low tax, libertarian position.’
‘Now here’s the rub. My experience thus far is that as soon as more than 2 people get in a room progress completely stops. Even where we have experts of our own they disagree.’
‘The charm and frustration of Ukip is we have doctors who fancy themselves as tax experts, painters and decorators who know all about strategic defence issues, and branch chairmen, retired dentists, who understand the most intricate political solutions for the nation.’
UKIP; A disaster waiting to happen!
