Star date: 2nd May 2017

SALFORD UKIP CHAIR RESIGNS AFTER THE "LATEST DISASTER TO AFFECT THE PARTY"

Joe O'Neill, chairman of Salford UKIP, has resigned following lurid allegations about Shneur Odze, the party's candidate in this week's Greater Manchester Mayor election – and UKIP's continued backing for him.

"In politics I firmly believe you live on your reputation and your moral standing" he says "I hope I can walk away with mine still intact."

Following the expose of the alleged sadomasochistic sex practices of Shneur Odze, the Salford based UKIP candidate in this week's Greater Manchester Mayor election, Joe O'Neill, the acting Chair of Salford UKIP has resigned.

The Mail on Sunday and the Salford Star revealed this weekend how Odze, a married ultra orthodox Jewish man, has allegedly been involved in wild 'rape fantasies' with a woman he met on a 'kinky community' dating site (for full background see previous Salford Star articles – click here and click here, or the Mail on Sunday – click here). UKIP nationally has continued to back its candidate.

"It's with deep regret that after the latest disaster to affect the party I feel little option but to offer my resignation" Joe O'Neill explains "I took on the role as temporary Chair of the group with a hope of rebuilding what once was a serious branch offering stiff opposition to Labour.

"With a number of emails I read yesterday in relation to what I can only describe as a damaging public relations exercise to affect Salford, the consensus was no crime had been committed...

"...That may be correct but morally I, and I believe many members of the voting public will feel the same - that trust and family values have been broken" he says "I agree that the voting slips are now printed and to ask our candidate to stand down would be a wasted exercise, but one I feel as a party we should have taken.

"The calls I received yesterday asked 'Do we support the actions of this individual?'" he adds "I do not. In politics I firmly believe you live on your reputation and your moral standing; I hope I can walk away with mine still intact. I offer all my colleagues the best of luck in the upcoming elections. Sadly I will not be there with them..."

So for all Mary Ferrers pontification it seems that she's just power mad along the same lines as Felse. She will go from party to party in the remote hope that she manages to wield power again. Stand by your convictions...,oh you don't have any!

Dear Wrote (can't you put your name to your comment) Joe and myself have been members of Lib Dems/ Greens​ and Ukip. I can't comment why Joe left libs and Greens. I left Libs Dems because I didn't agree with getting into bed with the Tory's. The greens were very hit and miss. I have also left Ukip. I sent 2/3 emails regarding the issues of the Ukip candidate for mayor to regenal office I didn't like the answers I got. I can't put my name to a party who will allow this man to carry on under the banner of Ukip. I feel the salford members of Ukip have been badly let down by both Odze and reginal office.

He resigned as chair or he resigned from UKIP? Hasn't he previously also resigned from the Tories, Labour, Lib Dems and Greens?
