UKIP veteran hints at Farage linked anti-UKIP plot

Was Lois Perry’s resignation as UKIP leader part of a Nigel Farage-inspired plot?

“I couldn’t possibly comment” says her UKIP leadership election rival, Bill Etheridge.

Interviewed on the right-wing online ‘Freeman Report’, Etheridge, a long-standing, senior UKIP veteran and one of its Euro MPs from 2014 -2019, pours scorn on the idea that she was elected fairly as leader in last April’s election:

“I’m prepared to believe that a large number of activists and people involved in the party appeared to have voted or me, yet the vote turned out to be about 80% to 20% to Lois…

“So, I’m prepared to believe that a lot of people who aren’t actually active members must have voted, and all voted for Lois. I’m prepared to believe that…

“I believe, actually that Father Christmas sometimes delivers my Xmas presents and that when kids lose a tooth, the tooth fairy puts a little penny under them…”

And, when it’s put to him by host James Freeman that: “…it looks like Farage and Lee Anderson have managed to convince Lois that UKIP don’t stand a chance and so she should collapse the party and put the party into disarray, right before the general election” Etheridge goes full Francis Urquhart:

“What an interesting theory. I couldn’t possibly comment on that theory other than to say I find it fascinating…”
