Lord Pearson resigns as leader

This is not news exactly but here is the link to Lord Pearson's statement in which he explains his course of action. One might ask whether this blog will carry on functioning and the answer to that is unclear at this stage. However, there are certain things that do need to be done - this blog will catch up with Lord Pearson's activity in the House of Lords before the recess. This should have been done before but the present hiatus in political activity is a good time.

  1. I was very sorry to learn of Lord P's resignation. He seemed to be a thoroughly decent man who was well suited to the task.

  2. I agree with Derek Tipp, and would only add that I sympathise with Lord Pearson's reasons for stepping down.

    As to the blog, I would suggest continuing to update it if at all possible. Blogs are useful platforms for broadcasting your views without having to pass them through the filter of the main stream media.

  3. I'm very sorry to hear of your resignation, though I quite understand the reasons. Good luck for the future and may we win against the corruption in the heart of politics some day...

  4. Good luck, Lord Pearson. Thank you for everything that you have done over the past six months and all the work that you have put into the party.

    I think Malcolm Pearson has done the right thing. He acknowledges his short comings. He can now concentrate on fund-raising and speaking in the Lords - both areas in which he is more effective. Our Branch was one of those which passed a Motion of No Confidence in him as Leader and I personally suffered as a UKIP Candidate in the GE by his belated attempts to support a Tory Candidate who was a family friend.
    We now have an interesting challenge to select a successor.

  6. Barry - you just don't get it, do you? Never did, never will but you will insist on going on about it and making a prat of yourself.........

  7. Sad that we still have folk in the Party who not only hide behind anonymity (See Anonymous above) but fail to have the skills to argue their case. I am more than happy to discuss in the margins of Conference if Anonymous has the guts.

  9. Thank you for doing such a great job. Some of those BBC broadcasts were absolute classics, and I enjoyed them very much. Carry on ‘straight talking’, and all the best for the future, hopefully in an independent nation.
