UKIP has published an article on its website, reproduced from the Daily Telegraph, entitled
Indeed, the Chairman of UKIP Wales was so concerned that he wrote to UKIP leader Roger Knapman. Below is the text of the message: “Roger (Knapman),
I am very concerned to see that 2 out of 3 of our top stories on ukip.org website relate to immigration (and with no reference relating them to the EU).
I am particularly anxious that the main headline refers to "
I accept it’s a newspaper headline but is it a top story for us?
What impression does this give to those who view our site?
I understood that our concern is space not race is this correct?
I hope and trust this is an oversight on someone’s part.
To prevent further embarrassment I think it should be removed or at least placed out of the 'top story' bracket - our Party is experiencing enough problems without adding to them in this way.
Other stories such as EuroPol, Barroso's key note speech to French Parliament (who introduced him as the leading politician in Europe when he is merely head of the Civil service in the EU) and Vice President EU Commissioner Wallstrom's upcoming participation in the 'Sound of Europe' Conference have not been included.
However, the article which was originally posted on January 27 is still on the website at the time of writing this (over a week later) so the UKIP leadership have obviously not listened to the voices of dissent from within their own party, but instead it seems they are content to pander to the extreme elements of the party (its leaders and MEPs?).
