Outside the marginals

a commentary on the politics that followed the UK 2010 & 2015 elections

UKIP like outsiders

Andy Parsons expressed surprise (BBC2 Mock the Week, 1 October 2014) about Mark Reckless defecting to UKIP because:

They don’t like outsiders coming in and taking their jobs

I am sure that Douglas Carswell’s predecessor as UKIP candidate for Clacton must agree with that sentiment.

UKIP rules (W.11 – and see W.13) also require elected representatives to pay a tithe to the party – so it seems that UKIP behave a bit like some gang masters making compulsory deductions from pay.
