BBC Wales has reported on the growing row within UKIP's governing body over parachuting Candidates from outside Wales to stand as lists candidates and that some some members are "defying" Welsh leader Nathan Gill by refusing to approve the party's assembly election candidate selections
According to the Beeb.
The National Executive Committee (NEC) met on Friday for the second time in two weeks and discussed the matter.Is Mr Hamilon in charge of his own selection I wonder?
Its role is to sign off a list of assembly election candidates put forward by the party in Wales.
But BBC Wales understands it failed again to approve the list.
The party's source told BBC Wales: "The NEC - on which [former Conservative MP] Neil Hamilton sits - has become factionalised and is opposing the selections put forward by the party in Wales and supported by Nigel Farage.
"There are people on the NEC defying the leader in Wales.
"It's a real stalemate between the Welsh leadership, who Nigel supports, and the NEC."
Some Welsh members have warned that selecting candidates from outside Wales - including Mr Hamilton - would be damaging.
On Friday, UKIP councillor Kevin Mahoney said he would quit the party if Mr Hamilton, Mark Reckless and Alexandra Phillips were selected.
Based on its recent electoral performance in Wales, the party stands a good chance of getting several regional AMs elected in May.
Mr Hamilton did not want to comment.
A spokesman for UKIP Wales said: "There is so much vested interest in the process as it could be UKIP's first major breakthrough into a domestic parliament and the party and its members want to be sure that the best candidates are selected for the job."
If the three named above are selected in the top 2 of the regional lists will there be a backlash among Welsh voters whose support for Ukip is probably wobbly anyway?
Will there be an ironic accusations of racism if other parties highlight that some Ukip candidates seem to imposed from outside Wales.
It says a lot about the calibre of Ukip Welsh membership where they have to turn to a former Tory MP who defected to them and then lost his seat and a disgraced former Tory MP who despot being raised in Amamnford seems to have worked the hardest in loosing his accent.
Despite their notoriety neither Mr Reckless or Mr Hamilton were good MPs seen as rising stars in their former party s.
With Ukip set to win a number of seats It looks like we will either have third rate Ukip AM from their Welsh membership or second rate AM who come from outside.
What a choice.
