Just like the Sweeny

A clarification on the "raid" on Nikki Sinclaire MEP's office:

The NEC asked an officer of the party to remove UKIP equipment from the office of Nikki Sinclaire believing it was jointly occupied with Mike Nattrass MEP.  The officer in question visited the office, spoke to a member of staff, confirmed that nothing belonging to UKIP was present and left.  Nothing was removed from the office.

I don't think this will be making the front page of Private Eye any time soon.

So the first bit of spin

The first piece of info from a trusted source that I could use, not spin. The person in question disapproves of what was done incidentally.

I tried to post it on the members forum and it was pulled almost immediately. I guess the truth hurts, or is it only a partial truth.

Given as I understand it the removal/replacement story came from the office I think the Jury is still out.

It simply doesn't make sense. If it was done because it was a shared office why. UKIP cannot control who Mike rents too, or who Nikki rents from. Either way it is bizarre.

You believe this utter drivel why?

What earthly reason has a shared office got to do with it?

What UKIP equipment would an MEP have?

Why would you want it back?

If there was grounds to think that a breach of party rules had taken place I would have thought waiting for the outcome of the disciplinary hearing would have been more astute. There is one isn't there? You don't preach one thing but do another in private in UKIP do you? Or is it just a kangaroo court.

Laughingly you think this piece of total cock spin will keep you out of the papers.

UKIP will meltdown, you will get less than 2% in GE and Pearson and Farage plan to make you a tory EU pressure group will have succeeded.
