Exclusive: Nigel Abandons The YI Chairman

Earlier this week #ThingsElliottSays brought you the news that Nigel Farage was planning to go to the YI conference to save YI Chairman Jack Duffin. However, Nigel has now abandoned Duffin to the mercy of the greater YI membership who have called him to 'resign'.

In a previous #ThingsElliottSays' article a YI source, close to the organisers of the up and coming conference, said "If Nigel pulls out then it shows how much faith he has in Duffin. Zero." Nigel not coming is certainly a departure from past history under the previous YI chairman Rob Cormely. Just look at the photo below, Nigel at a YI event when Cormley was Chairman.

Duffin announced last night who would instead be filling the TBC slot in the YI conference agenda, previously set aside for Nigel. Duffin says he was 'trying to confirm one of the new MEPs from the EFDD group', but this goes completely against what #ThingsElliottSays sources have told him and what people in YI are loudly gossiping about. Everyone knows the committee had Nigel down as coming to the conference but he has pulled out. Duffin knows what he said on Facebook was complete bollocks. 

So what is to happen now? Well Duffin is all on his own. Only his cronies are on his side with his previous ally Neil Hamilton losing his previous position in UKIP. The calls for him to resign are in all likelihood going to get louder. The discontent he has sown by seemingly waging war on the libertarian faction in YI will cause him a lot of grief and maybe his position in time.

I hope Jack Duffin has a really great conference.

    There is no disunity in YI, everyone loves me, the American Tanks are nowhere near baghdad, freedom is slavery

    People used to say UKIP was too white and then they complain when I add some brown #confused

    Glad that Neil has gone from Hamilton to Hamilt-off. What he did to Shanks was almost as bad as what Sean Howlett did at that conference

  5. I must say, I really felt quite distressed at not receiving an invitation

  6. Bought myself a ticket to UKIP conference but I'm not leaving the tories yet.
