Some LPUK members may have received an email today from Nic Coombe, who purports to be the Chairman of LPUK. His position is controversial, to say the least, with Gavin Webb rightfully appointed to this position by the NCC. To the extent the position is held, it is held by default of bureaucratic actions being signed off by Nic Coombe and Andrew Withers.
This statement had been posted to the old blog spot website and was discussed previously on Libertarian Home. Ken Ferguson, Communication Director had this to say on the statement:
It is important to know that the NCC, as elected, is still functioning and will continue to resist the hi-jacking of the party by the rump of former officials.
The status of each of member of the rump committee was also discussed previously.
Ken went on to mention that:
The statement at the bottom of the [blog] announcement is untrue.
“This notice is published after consultation with all the legally responsible officers and as many members of the NCC as could be engaged.”
As far as I am aware, Nic Coome did not contact or consult any NCC member prior to publication.
It is of course interesting to note that the email version does not contain sentence quoted from the previous version.
