Draft Speech by Nigel Farage on welcoming Claire Khaw - an ex-BNP member - into UKIP
"Why, you ask, is Claire Khaw now a member of UKIP? Was she not a member of the BNP? Aren't ex-BNP members barred from joining UKIP, you ask.
We have been informed by our legal advisers that this prohibition is in fact ultra vires. http://thevoiceofreason-ann.blogspot.co.uk/2011/10/ukip-to-readmit-claire-khaw-as-member.html There is therefore no valid reason to forbid Claire, whose talent and conviction are undoubted, from being of use to UKIP. Claire Khaw, UKIP welcomes you warmly."
[Curtsies and blows kisses to an enthusiastic audience giving her warm applause and loud cheers.]
