Rebel West Mildland MEP Nikki Sinclaire has been expelled from UKIP

The Birmingham mail reports: WEST Midlands MEP Nikki Sinclaire has been expelled from the UK Independence Party after refusing to be part of a multi-national group it has joined in the European Parliament.

Ms Sinclaire has refused to sit with her own party members in European Parliament meetings since mid-January.

She said this is because of the breakdown of her relationship with UKIP leader in Europe Nigel Farage and the “extreme views” of some of UKIP’s political allies in the Europe of Freedom and Democracy group (EFD). Ms Sinclaire insisted she was not quitting the party – but now UKIP’s National Executive Committee has removed the whip, reducing UKIP’s team of MEPs to 12.

A UKIP statement said: “Nikki Sinclaire says that her political views are incompatible with those of some members of the EFD Group in the European parliament, of which the UKIP MEPs form part. She has also proved unable to collaborate adequately with the voluntary party in the UK.

“The national executive committee has therefore removed the whip; Nikki Sinclaire may no longer describe herself as a UKIP MEP, and she may not stand as a UKIP candidate in the forthcoming General Election.”
