Are Southend West UKIP Faragists, or Carswellians?


ukip southend west retweet
Many thanks are due to Douglas Carswell, the UKIP MP for Clacton, for giving we political anoraks our Christmas present early in the form of his (Eminently sensible -Ed) statement that UKIP could do with a change of leader from Mr Farage if it is ever to, well, achieve anything of note.

The Faragists are, naturally, a little hysterical over this statement of heretical treason/base fact (Delete as appropriate -Ed). But where do Southend UKIP stand on the matter?

Well, as they have recently split into Southend West UKIP and Rochford & Southend East UKIP, to follow the constituency boundaries, I can only really speculate on the views of the western faction, who have retweeted the above tweet in an apparent endorsement of Mr Carswell. Now, it’s possible to retweet something accidentally, and as many a Twitter bio (But not @ukipsouthend -Ed) says, retweets are not endorsements. Nonetheless, it does seem to suggest that the local purple brigade are less than onside with the dear leader.
