Yes, thanks for that, Henry, Tapestry, Topper etc. Interested to hear from the other Innocent Abroad on PB that you stood for UKIP. Where?

Tapestry

Shrewsbury & Atcham 2001.
Left the party immediately after the election and signed up as an IDS supporter.

I am certain that the UKIP threat was enough to push MPs to back IDS over Portillo.

UKIP seemed a potential threat at that time before they messed up.

I spoke to IDS' campaign manager frequently during the 2001 general election, Owen Paterson now Shadow N.I. who tried to talk me out of it and threatening me with being pushed out of Tories!

I know he was big on the UKIP threat at that time.

Having assisted IDS into the leadership as I saw it, I decided to back him, which led me on to attacking Portillo in 2003.

I wrote 2 million leaflets for UKIP and was not just a Constituency level operator.

Thanks, Tapestry. I am not sure of the status of the local UKIP here in East Devon - I know that those who stood as Parl Candidate and Agent at the same time as you are still somewhat active, and the exAgent has recently had his day in Court protesting about the EU portion of the Council Tax! Not sure of outcome there!!
