STINKING HYPOCRISY: Nigel Farage HIRED Ex NATIONAL FRONT Member To Help Him Become an MP

Kent Online

NIGEL Farage has been accused of ‘stinking hypocrisy’ after the former UKIP leader launched a coup against current party chief Gerard Batten over a decision to appoint Tommy Robinson as an advisor.

The former UKIP leader hired a former member of the National Front to help him become an MP in 2015.

Martin Heale was part of Nigel Farage’s campaign to become the MP for South Thanet and was a key Ukip figure in Thanet for several years.

He previously described his membership of the National Front in the 1970s as something that he regretted.

He was blocked from joining The Conservatives in 2018 due to his connections.

Heale told Kent Online: “Working with him was one of the most interesting periods of my life.”

Mr Farage said on Friday that he would be submitting a letter of no confidence in Mr Batten, and added that he will “get rid of him”.

Batten, who is hugely popular among the working-class voter base, and with young Ukippers was praised after he made Tommy Robinson his advisor.

Farage said: “Gerard Batten has got this sort of fixation with Tommy Robison, and discussing Islam, and dragging Ukip into the direction of effectively being a street activist party.”

Asked if Mr Robinson’s appointment would kill the party, Mr Farage said: “I haven’t given up yet. I will be writing to the National Executive Committee of the party today and urging we have a vote of no confidence in Gerard Batten as leader, that we get rid of him.

“We will have one last go at getting rid of somebody who as leader is dragging us in a shameful direction.

“I’m going to fight, try and save it, but if it continues in this direction, electorally it is finished.”

The Founder of UKIP Alan Sked, a man who stood as a candidate in several parliamentary elections also revealed that in the 1990s, Nige asked him to allow National Front candidates into the party, the National Front were a vile racist group – nothing like our Tommy.

Sked says he “Adamantly refused” and claimed that “it did happen” under Farage.

It comes after the UKIP NEC rejected calls for Tommy to become a member of the party pushing the decision “Until after Brexit.”

Gerard Batten said: “I have appointed Tommy Robinson to be a personal special advisor on two subjects which he has great knowledge.

“It is not necessary for him to be a party member in order to assist me in this role. I am looking forward to working with him.” said Batten.

Some UKIP members have vowed to ‘rip up there membership cards’ if Mr Farage continues on this path.

Mr Batten hit back on Twitter and said: “Nigel Farage has reportedly said on the radio this morning that the NEC should hold a vote of no confidence in me. This is the same NEC Nigel described as ‘low grade people’ and a ‘swamp that needed to be drained’. I will be in the media today commenting.”

    I feel Nigel Farage doesn’t realise the massive following that Gerard Batten has gained under his leadership. Gerard’s a man of integrity and has a direct and honest approach in the corrupt world of politics, hence his great appeal to the working class. He’s admired too for his open and public support of Tommy, also a working class hero. Farage should leave well alone unless his real intention is to destroy UKIP. When has he had the courage to talk openly about the mass raping of underage girls throughout the UK? On your way Farage! You’re no longer wanted at UKIP! Jog along!

    You are sharing tired gossip from the closet homosexual and Islamic convert (imo); Robert Edwards, a Ramsgate born Mosleyite and ex-NF member locally who is an all round bad egg and has some historical issue with this man and has been pursuing his catty vendetta for years. Look online for evidence of this. He also made a range of attacks on ex-Ramsgate MP Aitken, for other reasons.

    FWIW Heale repudiated the NF, his past colleagues and political associations and ended up in a mixed race marriage with a mixed race child (or maybe two). As a search online will show. Not that this is to his credit, either.
