UKIP has agreed to let its members decide if Tommy Robinson should be granted party membership.
The UKIP National Executive Committee agreed to let members debate and vote on the motion at Conference on the 22nd of September. The motion was put forward by Alan Craig – UKIP’s Family & Children Spokesman.
Tommy Robinson has already said he would like to join the party and added that if he joined ‘UKIP would gain 20,000 members’ and would ‘Kick off a political revolution.’
Our Tommy said: “I want to join UKIP and the British working class will be electrified if I join Ukip.”
“The left-wing media is terrified about me joining Ukip and want to say thank you to Gerard Batten and Ukip for reaching out to me. Gerard is the only politician that could get me up and out to vote.”
The motion will now be debated and voted upon at UKIP’s national conference in Birmingham later this month.
The motion says: “Conference believes that Tommy Robinson is a global figure who stands in the long English tradition of anti-establishment rebels with a cause from Robin Hood to the Suffragettes; admires his campaigns both for #FreeSpeech and to expose the authorities’ decades-long silence and inaction over the industrial-scale child sexual abuse by rape gangs; and requests the NEC to consider offering him membership of UKIP.”
UKIP Chairman Tony McIntyre said: “After due consideration on consulting the UKIP National Executive Committee, the Party Chairman has decided to allow a debate at the party conference on the membership of Tommy Robinson. The particular motion requests that the NEC lifts the ban on prescribed groups in his case only.
The debate will be held at the UKIP conference on the afternoon of Saturday, September 22, 2018 at the International Convention Centre in Birmingham.
