Has the penny ‘dropped’?

It would appear that for one member of Ukip it most certainly has where the matter of renegotiating our membership of the European Union is concerned.

“So let’s welcome the new realism on Europe from some senior Tories.  But let’s also demand that they make themselves a little clearer on what they really want.  And let’s remember that the only way to get there is by invoking Article 50 of the Lisbon Treaty, which will allow us to negotiate a new relationship with Brussels.  Cameron’s idea that he can just show up in the Berlaymont Building and jettison half of the acquis communautaire is so much pie in the sky.”

Either this chap is ‘off message’ or this is a public admission that Ukip are ‘re-thinking’ the presentation of their strategy…………

Just saying………….

  1. Nice spot WfW, I’ll link to this later – am currently writing a post about Article 50.

    Is this also possibly maneuverings of Helmer trying to wrestle control away from Farage of UKIP given Farage’s obsession with repealing ECA 1972?

    Roger replied to my question. Seems he might have been slightly off the wall, but is sticking to his guns about the need to invoke Article 50. Not sure about TBF’s supposition – interesting though!

    I have responded and am hoping that this exchange will at least instil some doubts in the leadership’s mind concerning their present policy. As you know I am a recently recruited member and am I’m loathe to give up on them quite yet. 🙂
