JACK DUFFIN, outgoing UKIP youth chairman, has been heavily defeated in his attempt to lower the age of the Young Independence (YI) membership to 25 by referendum, TBG can exclusively reveal.
Insider figures seen on this website first suggest:
TOTAL VOTES: 228 | YES = 54 votes (25.8%) | NO = 155 votes (74.2%)
Sources have claimed that Duffin tried to push the amendment through the council to, "Chuck out anyone over 25, but they rebelled and sensationally forced him to put it to a membership vote".
"He was furious", said a YI source, "This terrible error is possibly the reason he stood down early."
It's also been said that someone over 25 wants to run against Duffin's favoured candidate for YI chair.
As if being given his marching order by the people of Portsmouth South wasn't enough TBG can today report that Mike Hancock has been given two months notice by his landlord to quit his offices in the Albert Road area of Southsea.
As if this things are not bad enough TBG also understands that Portsmouth City Council is today taking fresh advice in regards to the former Portsmouth South MP being asked to repay the £150,000 legal bill for the investigation into his recent conduct.
Just for the record TBG did some research on the wife of Labour Leadership contender Andy Burnham today and came up trumps with some very interesting quotations.
Marie-France Van Heel as she is better known has a record of:
Calling Health Secretary Jeremy Hunt "Bloody Awful".
Calling Boris Johnson an "Idiot".
And just for good measure recently saying:
"Can't we have a military coup to get rid of our democratically elected government?"
Burnham is the front-runner and bookies favourite for the forthcoming Labour Leadership Contest.
Not surprisingly he also has a the backing of Unite and their left-wing firebrand Leader Len McCluskey.

YOUNG INDEPENDENCE (YI), the youth wing of UKIP, is apparently set to have a top secret meeting that will see a vote on whether to ditch members aged 25-30 which could sensationally see them barred from voting in the upcoming election, TBG can reveal.
Insider sources claim that the boys club that is the YI National Council will meet to hold a, "Secret referendum to bring the member age down to 25 and potentially boot out all those hard working YIers who are 25-30."
The news comes as UKIP turmoil continues with the resignation of its economic spokesman Patrick O'Flynn MEP just days after ealy YI elections were called after Chairman Jack Duffin stood down.

ALL hell has broken loose in Portsmouth Ukip, TBG can sensationally reveal.
Just seven days after local councillor Steve Hastings jumped ship back to the Conservatives saying that "The best hope for a European referendum now lies with the Tories", the former de-selected candidate in the Portsmouth South constituency has had a sharp public exchange of words with Nigel Farage.
Former UKIP Parliamentary Candidate Douglas Denny has sensationally told today's Portsmouth News that Nigel Farage must go.
In a letter to a member of the party’s national executive committee, Mr Denny echoes similar soundings put out by Douglas Carswell saying:
"Nigel has had his day."
"He is to be thanked for taking Ukip to where it is now – but I assure you all my political instincts say he is definitely not the man to take it forwards into this new era where there is a referendum." "To continue he will descend into acrimony and in-fighting within Ukip and ultimately be deposed, or Ukip become more and more irrelevant in British politics." "The public hate in-fighting in a party and it kills it in the public mind."
"Nigel, with his aggressive shouty personality, is simply not the person to put the arguments cogently and assertively and quietly with authority – without appearing to be a right-wing bigot."
"Like it or not Nigel does indeed appear to be a right- wing bigot, and puts off a large percentage of the people."
"That is why Ukip has never shaken off the image of being BNP-lite."
"He did not get into Thanet because of this."

FORMER Conservative Future (CF) Chairman Oliver Cooper "WILL" run for Chairman of troubled right-wing think-tank Bow Group, according to Tory Party insiders, TBG can reveal.
Ben Harris-Quinney, who according to Lord Michael Heseltine was "destroyed" recently on the Daily Politics, has been in post for the last four years and his position is now said to be "shaky at best".
A source said: "Cooper has been buoyed by support since rumours of a bid were reported and I think he will run for Chairman of this great institution."
Another source recently told The Commentator: "He’s (Cooper) a paid up member of the Conservative Party and will ensure the Bow Group is returned to its former glory."
UPDATE - 18/05/15 PM
It's being reported that "Bow Group chairman Been Harris-Quinney has decided to step down." >> READ MORE
