NEC and neck...

As many of you may know, your humble Devil has decided to stand for UKIP's National Executive Committee (NEC).

Amongst other things, they really need to have a coherent internet strategy: quite apart from anything else, for a small party that simply cannot afford to hire a massive PR company, the internet is a crucial—and, crucially, cheap—way of discussing ideas and policy.

Plus, of course, the party do need to rebrand and, with both of these objects in mind, I do think that having someone in the party structure who knows about both of these things would be a very good idea.

So, with a grateful flick of the tail to all those bloggers whose compliments I have nicked over the years, here's your humble Devil's NEC Election page...

That's a good picture and you are quite good looking DK....who did you get to touch it up and radically change it in Photoshop?

Hi DK,
I have read your NEC page, and it covers many of the topics that I brought up on Saturday in a chat with the UKIP branch chairman and county organiser.
I'll dig out my UKIP number and you can add me to your assenters.

Keep up the good work

Well done and all the best to you, DK. You've a sharp mind and no doubt you will be able to influence UKIP in a positive way.

I've said this before, and I do not mean it as any sort of rebuke or attack on you, as your style of swearblogging doesn't bother or offend me in the slightest (in fact I find your style most enjoyable)...but I just think that you've got to be aware that, in the run-up to the next election, I'd say it's a fair bet that the likes of the Daily Mail etc will pick upon your swearing and do some sort of "exposé", saying, you know, "This is the sort of language deemed acceptable by the NEC of UKIP", you know what I'm saying? If not the press, then certainly I'd say Labour and/or the Conservatives will use that against you. Don't underestimate the lengths the big parties will go to, in order to minimise UKIP's effect on their votes. Just bear that in mind. Treat them all as suspicious.

I suspect that any UKIP coalition proposal would have a referendum on EU Membership as an absolute must.

Any equivocation or refusal would ensure that UKIP would not be in coalition with anyone.

I suspect that UKIP wouldn't feel the need to start forming coalitions or doing deals, but would vote according to conviction.

Good luck!

Was also going to comment on the over-use of the f-word. Given the demographic of UKIP's electorate, I'd suggest that you may not win yourself/your party a lot of voters, and could put a lot of people off (especially if, as Tom suggests, any of the rags pick up on it). I know that all the UKIP voters I know (you can just about count them on your fingers and toes) would react very negatively if they read your blog.

It seems to me that you have a more than adequate vocabulary without needing to resort to what many would see as unnecessary vulgarity!

Please take this in the spirit it is intended - I'm only trying to point out possible pitfalls as I think you have a lot to offer, andit would be a shame to miss out because you couldn't stop giving a fuck :)

Good Luck again.
