Mote, UKIP and a bunch of TITS

So, it looks as though disgraced former UKIP MEP and convicted benefit fraudster Ashley Mote has been released from prison and will be re-taking his seat in the European Parliament - much to the chagrin of one of the jurors on his case. However, poor ol' Ash's party the Independence, Tradition and Sovereignty group (or TITS for short) collapsed this week after one of their member (Mussolini's granddaughter Alessandra Mussolini, to whom, UKIPwatch's chum Godfrey Bloom is particularly attached) said that all Romanians were criminals. This caused predictable outrage, and led the Romanian far-right to withdraw their members from the group, causing it to fall below the minimum threshold of 20 MEPs required to be classified as a political group.

All of which means that Ashley is, again, without a political home. However, help is surely at hand - UKIP are haemorrhaging members and may well offer Ash a second chance. After all, it makes sense - TITS were a bunch of racists and homophobes and UKIP, erm, are a bunch of racists and homophobes.

In this light it is interesting that the re-doubtable England Expects blog which is run by a (clearly easily inflamed) UKIP official has taken umbrage that people get confused between UKIP and ITS. If the cap fits boys……....

England Expects is currently strongly pro-UKIP but when Farage and the boys take a dive at the next election, England can expect a somewhat different take on the smaller issues of day.

My dear,
England Expects is strongly pro- UKIP because it is strongly pro- UKIP. It believes in small government, indepependent government for the United Kingdom and Northern Ireland a diminuation of the database state and a whole bunch of other stuff that no other party even attempts to recognise. If UKIP takes a dive so be it, though don't get your hopes up, but the blog will remain copmmitted to the ideals the party represents. As John Wilkes put it "Liberty, Property Inependence". Quite a rallying cry.

How could you possibly confuse a group which included a man who was elected to the European Parliament in 2004 as a UKIP candidate with a group which includes men who were elected to the European Parliament in 2004 as UKIP candidates? How could you possibly find any cause for confusion there?
