There's a new site putting UKIP under scrutiny called UKIPatHOME. It has a very interesting story about Ashley Mote, the MEP who was elected under the UKIP banner. Apparently he is signing up to the new extremist grouping which includes Alessandra Mussolini and various other racist toerags.
Mote was withdrawn from the UKIP list after financial irregularity allegations were made against him, but he was still elected under UKIP banner. UKIP has been making great play of two 'Conservative' Peers defecting to them this week, despite the fact that both had the whip withdrawn from them in 2004 for urging people to vote UKIP in the European elections. UKIP also withdrew the whip from Mote in 2004. So if they UKIP describes the two Peers as Conservatives, it presumably means they are happy to consider Mote as being UKIP. QED.
UPDATE: UKIP is "appalled and horrified" by Mote's decision and has called on him to resign his seat.
