Batten for leader?

Rumours abound that Gerard Batten will shortly be announcing that he is standing in the leadership election.

A reputable source suggests that the announcement will come in the next couple of days.

Batten is the man that has done what the British government seems incapable of doing - putting a cost on our membership of the European Empire.

He is also the man who exposed the alleged link between Romano Prodi and the KGB, something that was never successfully investigated as the two Russian men that implicated Prodi were conveniently assassinated.

UKIP with Gerard Batten at the helm would certainly worry a lot of people in the European Empire and at home.

He just announced tonight at our West London joint branch meeting & immediately garnered with 14 signatures from 3 branches

If there is a reasonable number of candidates, it will lead to a more interesting campaign, and hopefully more publicity for UKIP.

There are already two many candidates and it will get messy as it did last time.

I wonder if Paul, Steve and Bob could comment on the fact that Gerard Batten's policy document on energy from October 2006 ( http://www.gerardbatten.co.uk/pamphlets/britainsenergy.pdf ) doesn't mention climate change, the defining issue of our age?

Should a man who determinedly refuses to see any linkage between energy production and the climate lead a British political party?

Gerard Batten mentions energy conservation in his paper, but it seems that UKIP supporters are viscerally opposed to technologies which reduce energy usage like energy-saving lightbulbs.

Could someone who supports Gerard Batten's plans for energy conservation explain how UKIP will implement its energy conservation plans without energy-saving lightbulbs?
