UKIP begins expulsion proceedings against two members


UKIP has today set in train expulsion procedures against two members after an internal investigation found that both had links to organisations incompatible with party membership.

The first was discovered to have been a member of the BNP from 2005-2010, the second to have been a donor to the EDL.

Both men still have the right of an appeal in writing to the NEC and for that reason their identities will not be disclosed at this time.

A UKIP spokesman said: "UKIP is a non-racist, non-sectarian party and we are determined to uphold those values. Part of that process is maintaining vigilance against the possibility of infiltration either on an organised or individual basis by those who do not subscribe to our values."
