If anybody has wondered we are presently in France having a break, hence the lack of blogging. Internet access and wi-fi are hard to come by where we are.
Many thanks to those who have emailed and texted messages of support since I decided to 'take a back seat'. I am saddened as I made so many good friends in UKIP, but I finally lost faith, partly due to poor election results which have made me question the tactic of having MEPs, partly due to the Party Leader and his inability to actually lead or motivate. Indeed his speeches since becoming leader are all so similar that you can't put a cigarette paper between them!
I was proud to have been voted top of the list in the North West, but would have been continuing for all the wrong reasons, which would have been unfair to the members who supported me, and wrong for me personally. What finally made up my mind to stand down was the feeling of anti-climax when I got the result, I knew then the decision I had to make.
Au revoir pour maintenant!
