EXCLUSIVE: McKenzie Set to Run For YI Deputy.
TBG has word that Young Independence, the UKIP youth wing, is set to elect its first ever openly gay leader.
Jamie McKenzie, the popular YI London chairman, is favourite to win the approaching national deputy leader competition. Paraphrasing the great Thatcher on his Facebook page, Mckenzie said "I don't think there will be a gay YI deputy chairman. Not in my lifetime..."
McKenzie is also thought to have the support of UKIP favourite Suzanne Evans who spoke of her "premonition" of Jamie being elected. Jamie’s victory would come as good news for the party after being ‘banned’ from this year’s gay pride.
This website understands that Jamie’s only opponent will be Thomas Hoof, the former deputy chairman allegedly let go by Jack Duffin and replaced by paid staff.
