Do you know the woman in the pic? Her name is Iveta Grigule and she’s a snake in the grass.
In an event which will have repercussions within the Uk, with elections coming up, starting with the November 20th by-election, this woman has been bribed to rat on her EU Parliament group, of which Beppo and Nigel are a part by Schultz offering her the head of something to Kazakhstan. No woman can resist being promoted to head of something.
So she ditched the groups and Schultz/Barosso knew full well that this dropped the group one person less than required to get the millions in funding, including money for campaigning within the UK.
There is a way out, of course – join the FN of Marine’s and the funding will be reinstated. However, this is precisely what Nigel has been avoiding – joining anything with the FN. Marine understands fully the UK situation and though Nige and UKIP would sit as non-aligned, that will mean zero within the UK as Cameron and Beaker beat the hollow tin and bellow that UKIP was fascist all along.
One who is coming out of this looking very bad is Hannan. He’s looking very much like a snake in the grass himself. Hate to praise Cameron but at least he’s almost openly pro-EU and everyone in politics knows he’s not to be trusted. Hannan though had a lot of EUsceptic currency with many people. I hope they give him hell at the Telegraph which I can no longer read.
Sharon Ellul-Bonici, Secretary General of the European Alliance for Freedom, a pan European party which includes Marine Le Pen, said “UKIP will have to be seen with the other ‘bad fellas’ in another group with far right elements or still sit next to them as Non-Attached.” She added that she was “not surprised” about the collapse of the group, saying that she felt Ms Grigule was not to be trusted.
Why are we shocked? Not shocked but still disgusted. Further and further from Cameron’s party do I get – they really look like snakes now, vipers. It’s going to take many years for me to go back to voting Conservative.
