Leadership Candidates & Hustings confirmed

The leadership race is officially open with five confirmed candidates:
  • Gerard Batten MEP
  • Lord Pearson of Rannoch
  • Mike Nattrass MEP
  • Nikki Sinclaire MEP
  • Alan Wood
Hustings meetings have been arranged for party members as follows:
  • Saturday 31st October, 2pm, Lyne Village Hall, Lyne, Chertsey, Surrey, KT16 0AN.
  • Monday 2nd November, 7.30pm, Counting House, 50 Cornhill, Bank, London, EC3V 3PD.
  • Wednesday 4th November, 7.30pm, The Best Mate Room, Exeter Racecourse, Haldon Hill, Kennford, Exeter, EX6 7XS.
  • Tuesday 10th November, 7pm, Tower College, Mill Lane, Prescot, Merseyside, L35 6NE.
  • Friday 13th November, 7.30pm, The Great Barr Hotel, Pear Tree Drive, (off the) Newton Road, Great Barr, Birmingham, B43 6HS.
Any member is entitled to attend one or more of the hustings provided you present a valid, up-to-date UKIP membership card.

So who will Bloggers4UKIP be backing? The short answer: nobody. The long answer: members of the Bloggers4UKIP team are close to and/or personally backing different candidates so, in the interests of maintaining harmony, I have made an editorial decision that there will be no promotion of any of the candidates.

All of the candidates are, of course, welcome to keep us updated with their leadership campaign.
