UKIP’s National Executive Committee (NEC) will consider the possibility of granting Tommy Robinson party membership, Kipper Central revealed.

The motion calling for Robinson’s recruitment is from many members, but started with the party’s Family & Children Spokeman Alan Craig. He stated, “Conference believes that Tommy Robinson stands on the long English tradition of anti-establishment rebels with a cause … to expose the authorities’ decades-long silence and inaction over industrial-scale child sexual abuse by rape gangs; and requests the NEC to offer him membership of UKIP.”

Craig told Kipper Central: “Tommy has become a global phenomenon representing those who have been excluded and silenced by the globalist liberal elite.

“He’s now a Kipper at heart and we should welcome him.”

It is not clear whether, if offered, Robinson would accept membership, but the activist has campaigned alongside party leader Gerard Batten on multiple occasions. He also clarified before last year’s general election that he intended on voting UKIP.

There will be a discussion on the motion at the party’s annual conference, set for 21st September. If supported overwhelmingly, it will return to the NEC who have the final say.
