SECRET - Conservative & Unionist/UKIP Deal ???

Alliance for Democracy Bulletin by Steve Uncles


CONSERVATIVE LEADERSHIP IN SECRET DEAL TO OUST BERCOW

A highly ranked source on UKIP's NEC (UKIP's governing body) has
confirmed the existence of a deal between the Conservative
leadership and Nigel Farage, ex-leader of UKIP and currently the
UKIP leader in the European Parliament.

Apparently Farage is being secretly backed by the Tory
leadership, as a proxy, to oust John Bercow, Speaker of the
House.

John Bercow is very unpopular with the Conservative
Parliamentary Party for his expressed sympathies for
'New Labour'. His election to the office of Speaker was only
possible because of overwhelming support from the Parliamentary
Labour Party, calculated to embarrass the Conservative front
bench.

John Bercow's wife has also confirmed her ambition to represent
Labour in the Commons, which has caused further irritation
amongst Conservative MPs.

According to the UKIP NEC member: "If the wheeler-dealer Farage
is elected, Bercow will lose his seat. Farage will then resign
shortly afterwards, creating a by-election which the
Conservatives will win, thereby adding to their number in what
may be an extremely thin Conservative majority or possibly a
hung Parliament."

Under new rules, MPs are not permitted to serve in the European
Parliament. Farage would be loath to resign his European
Parliamentary seat and the generous salary, perks and allowances
he receives, and not least his co-leadership of one of the
groupings within the Parliament. He will therefore resign his
Westminster seat, repeating a claim he has often stated that
real power lies in the EU anyway.

The existence of such a deal is likely to cause disagreement
within UKIP. Already, UKIP’s new leader, Lord Pearson, has faced
considerable opposition from rank-and-file membership. This
follows the revelation of a deal where Pearson proposed to stand
UKIP down in the general election in return for a promise by the
Conservatives to hold a referendum on the Lisbon Treaty. The
Conservatives dismissed the approach, which will have been made
with Farage's knowledge.

This time, however, the Conservative leadership is particularly
keen to see the back of John Bercow.

According to sources in the local Conservative Constituency
Association in Buckingham, "Something untoward is going on
behind the scenes but if it is true Farage is involved, we
must appreciate that he is heavily tainted in his own expenses'
controversy involving £2m. He is not someone we would want to
represent Buckingham, deal or no deal."

Our source speculates that if Farage is elected in Buckingham
and then duly resigns, he will receive a Peerage a year or two
later. Under the new rules, Peers are permitted to sit in the
European Parliament.

This is complete and utter tosh and is disinformation designed to frighten voters from backing UKIP.

What Cameron and Brown should be more concerned with is that 8 sitting MP's,5 Labour and 3 Tories, are in secret discussion with UKIP as they know this country has been betrayed.
Two of the MP's represent marginal seats so both major parties should be seriously worried because UKIP is on course to make a breakthrough this year.

Your 'story' has neither substance nor validity.

The source is a rival party. I wish them and UKIP well. UKIP has been bedevilled for years by inter-necine strife. They now have an honorable leader who I believe deserves support. I have always voted for them to get us out of the EUSSR.
