Our thanks to David for this. Douglas Carswell, until today UKIP’s sole MP, has quit the party. Henceforth he will sit in the House of Commons as the independent MP for Clacton.
In 1991 the Anti-Federalist League was launched by Alan Sked, a historian. He stood as the prospective MP for Bath in the 1992 general election. When I stood in Ashfield in the 2015 general election, I attracted 30% more votes than Alan Sked did in 1993 .
The Anti-Federalist League was renamed the UK Independence Party in 1993. It took UKIP 24 years to have the same number of MPs today, as J4MB has managed in just four years.
Wikipedia have published an entry on J4MB over the past two years, the current one is here. There are a number of errors, probably attributable to feminist editresses, but none are of great import. One particularly attentive editress is ‘The Vintage Feminist’, as you can see from the entry’s revision history.
If everyone who read this gave us just £1 – or even better, £1 monthly – we could change the world. Click here to make a difference. Thanks.
