Trans former UKIP MEP concedes defeat in European elections
A transgender former UKIP MEP has conceded that she will not be re-elected after setting up her own party.
Yesterday she admitted defeat, ahead of the full results being announced. She quit UKIP in 2010, a year after being first elected, and set up the ‘We Demand a Referendum’ party in 2012.
Sinclaire previously aim at UKIP leader Nigel Farage as a “bully” and “manipulator”, who, through angry outbursts tried to push her out of the party because he disagrees with “alternative lifestyles”.
The Times also reported that Ms Sinclaire also accused Mr Farage of being a “mysoginist” with a “bad temper”, who would bang his fists on the table and scream at her in front of other colleagues.
She said: “He has a Stalinist approach ….. He’s purged the party of all talent ….. he’s threatened by intelligent people.”
She said she was the first “sex change Parliamentarian”, last year, and her departure from the European Parliament could mean there are no openly trans MEPs.
UKIP made massive gains in the elections,
