UKIP’s implosion – MEP ‘picked fight to dodge grilling’

Several Ukip MEPs suspect that Steven Woolfe deliberately picked a fight with his colleague Mike Hookem last week to avoid questions about his defection talks with the Conservative Party.

Woolfe collapsed and suffered two “epileptic-like” seizures two hours after an altercation with Hookem on Thursday. He is expected to be discharged from hospital in Strasbourg today.

But according to one fellow MEP, some colleagues, who initially feared for Woolfe’s life, are angry at his attempts to present himself as the victim and want to scupper his bid to become Ukip leader.

Crazy Ukippers huff and puff and Woolfe is blown down

A few years ago, Ukip introduced psychometric testing to weed out the nutters who wished to stand as candidates. That worked well, didn’t it? The only person I know who failed one of these tests was my colleague James Delingpole. Sure, James can get a bit psycho, but I’m not sure he’s in the same league as the rest of them.

These psychometric tests came to light at the same time that some staffers in Ukip HQ revealed what life was like on the inside. “You see the most extraordinary things,” one commented. “Everybody has been out with everybody else. There are animals in the office, people taking their clothes off . . . there are no sanctions. People are used to doing their own thing.” Well yes, but what animals? Pangolins? Ravens?

  1. Supposition and hear say.

    There are probably 1000s of hard won voters who thought the Cons have adopted UKIP policies, and maybe they have changed…
    But eventually the dragon will show its teeth and burn working people again.

    Let’s hope this sieving out of the chaff will produce a leader who is prepared to use brain not brawn to develop UKIP as a People Party that enhances the image and the belief that our viable and trustworthy alternative is for them.

    The Times piece in the header is written by Rod Liddle. Whilst I can understand him wishing to defend his colleague James Delingpole, by writing:

    “A few years ago, Ukip introduced psychometric testing to weed out the nutters who wished to stand as candidates. That worked well, didn’t it?

    That insults a whole lot of UKIP people that I have some real respect for.

    Delingpole is nuts in May and in every other month of the year.
