UK First Party is launched by former UKIP Chairman


Peter Cole - a former UKIP Chairman - has released the following press statement:

Country before self

United Kingdom First – New party; new direction

We are launching United Kingdom First because we have no alternative. There are no substantial differences between Labour, the Tories, and Lib Dems in their meek acceptance of EU domination.

Five years ago, the United Kingdom Independence Party - which most of us here belonged to - seemed to have a bright future. Through the campaigning efforts of ordinary members, 12 UKIP MEP’s were elected in the European Parliamentary elections. Sadly, their four years in Brussels has done nothing to bring the UK any nearer to withdrawing from the EU. The MEPs’ inaction, particularly regarding the Lisbon Treaty, along with the presence of a non-UK resident pro-EU candidate on the 2009 MEP list has destroyed the party’s credibility. As Conservative Party chairman Eric Pickles said in a BBC radio interview recently, ”Nigel Farage has presided over the collapse of his party.” We have nothing against ordinary UKIP members. 80 percent of whom are honest patriotic people, but the party leadership now behaves like the rest of the political class in this country - saying one thing but doing another. Such people are not fit to represent the withdrawalist cause in Britain.

But now UKF is here, offering this country the new direction it so desperately needs – and we believe that we have a vision for Britain that will resonate with the electorate and ensure the party won’t stay small for long. We stand for smaller, more accountable government, low taxes, freedom of speech and an emphasis on a common culture. Withdrawal from the EU is only part of our message, although we regard it as essential to get Britain back on its feet.

So while we will be contesting this June’s European Parliamentary elections in two regions of the UK, our main objective is to get party members elected onto local councils and to the Westminster Parliament, where the fight to get our country back will really take place. We are under no illusions that it will be very difficult to take on the three main political parties which have dominated the political scene for decades, but we believe times are changing. We see a real opening in the coming years for a party that truly speaks for the British people.

Whatever part of the country you come from, you are more than welcome to join us if, like us, you are sick and tired of career politicians, their broken promises and their surrender of our freedoms.. The more support and funds we can raise, the more impact we will have. So spread the word!After June, we will put together a thoroughly researched and costed policy manifesto for the UK and further develop our strategy of communicating to the public that UKF is a party that is different from the others. Our campaign to win our first seat in the House of Commons starts NOW!

NB: The United Kingdom First Party is a non-racist, non-sectarian party.

UKF is a terrible abbreviation. The F recalls NF and makes on think "U K Front" - with all the overtones.

Did these people not think about their name?

Will you be supporting this new party ?

I am still a member of UKIP and will be working from within UKIP to bring down Farage and his cabal.

"Country before self" - a rally call for fascists everywhere! The UKF blog says Tom Wise and Ashley Mote are both UKIP MEPs and makes much of the fact that Tom Wise's secretary is in their party when both Wise and Mote have both been expelled for fraud (secretarial expenses in the case of Wise).

Hi,

I note the foolish comments of WillyWonka - do permit me to deal with each as he is clearly bringing UKIP into disrepute with his dishonesty and misrepresentation as a supporter of EUkip - as shown by his postings on EUkip approved blogs as effectively a staff poster.

"Country before self"

I must say it has always been a good slogan - if only EUkip had stuck to it and even more importantly 'Country before self' - I do feel that it would be possible UKIP would still exist and there would have been no need for UKFP

Wotsisname said:

Perhaps that explains the various occasions on which Nigel Farage has used it as has EUkip's turncoat MP Bob Spink who is currently (like so many others) putting as much distance as possible between himself and the catastrophy which is EUkip.

Wotsisname said:

Do provide a URL as I am unaware of an official UKFP Blog - is it one EUkip has set up to try to discredit UKFP?

Where has it ever been claimed by UKFP that Tom Wise and Ashley Mote ARE UKIP MEPs?

Wotsisname said:

It really is quite a benefit that one of the founder members has been a EUkip MEP for several years he will if nothing else have learned how not to behave at close hand!

Wotsisname said:

You demean yourself by telling lies, no wonder you hide behind a silly name.

Ashley Mote was elected as a UKIP MEP and parted company shortly after as he was defending a Court Case regarding allegations of benefit crimes from several years earlier - unlike of course EUkip's Press Officer who has a recent conviction for Benefits Fraud!

Tom Wise was elected as a UKIP MEP, he is still a member of EUkip, he recently RESIGNED as the branch chairman of a EUkip branch. Tom Wise has NEVER been expelled from The Party, despite the lies of Nigel Farage on National TV.

I believe an apology is in order and perhaps you will be man enough to make it clearly, unequivocally and in your own name everywhere you have posted your poisinous lies and distortions.

Should anyone require further clarification they may find my personal blog of some help with facts at:
http://ukfirstparty.blogspot.com/
or
http://caterpillarsandbutterflies.blogspot.com/

where I post in my own name, clearly show contact details and provide my phone number so that ANYONE who believes I have made an error of fact can quickly contact me to make the correction and we can all be certain that the Blogs are as accurate as possible and I stand by what I have written - subject to reasonable unintentional error which I WANT to correct & WILL.

If as you claim Tom Wise was expelled from EUkip for fraud perhaps you can advise whether the money you claim he stole and laundered has been made up by the stolen money Nigel Farage received from him to settle some of his debts has been repaid?

Perhaps you would be so good as to ask Nigel Farage, since you claim EUkip expelled Tom Wise for fraud (which tthey did not) whether the money he received from the sum thus fraudulently obtained was thus known to be stolen and as Farage KNEW it was stolen adequately to, as you claim expell Wise what have the authorities done regarding Nigel Farage witingly and deliberately being in receipt of stolen money?

I would be glad if someone would draw the attention of DC Williams of Bedfordshire Constabulary to this entry on this blog & to save police time and money I wonder would Wotsit please publish his name and full contact details here, or anyone who knows who this fool is would they please be so good as to publish the relevant details.

Thanks,
Greg L-W.

Hi,

glad you are taking an interest John but what are you calling your party? They decided to call theirs UKFirstParty - would not have been my choice but whats in a name:

John Page?

The client of a prostitute and a leaf out of a book, but to be fair you didn't choose it ;-)

Regards,
Greg L-W.

John Page said...

I'm sorry, Greg, I have no idea what your comment with my name in it meant!

Greg L-W. said...

Hi,

John you said:

I'm sorry, Greg, I have no idea what your comment with my name in it meant!

sorry it was a JOKE!

You had likened UKF to NF somehow!

You had also claimed 'F' would remind people of Front!

I don't think so F***

So I pulled your leg over word association:

A John in America is a hooker's client!

A Page is a leaf in a book!

THAT is the problem with word associations!!!

I've obviously been associating with the idiots in EUkip too much and it seems to be catching!
;-)

Greg L-W.

I'm not going to reply to your reply point by point because I've got better things to do with my time but here's a couple of points ...

UK First Party blog:
http://ukfirstparty.blogspot.com/

Members and those onlookers considering their positions were further reassured by the fact that another founder Peter Cole gave an undertaking that although he currently worked 9 to 5 for Tom Wise the EUkip MEP

I believe Mote was expelled because of his impending court case for benefit fraud which he failed to declare when he joined the party and stood as an MEP.

You say that Tom Wise - "East Anglia's only Independent MEP" according to his website - hasn't been expelled from UKIP. Do you have evidence of this?

I post with my username because I want to and because I'm far better known online by this name than my own. I don't publicise my phone number because I don't want phone calls from fruitcakes.

Not sure why a policeman would be interested in a blog, perhaps you could explain? Actually, don't bother, I'm really not interested.

One final comment which I would have put on your blog if you allowed comments (presumably you prefer people to laugh at you in person over the phone rather than publically on your blog). Bloggers4UKIP isn't a UKIP blog, it's an independent blog for UKIP supporters. It has nothing to do with the party, they have no influence over it and nor will they.

Very wise of you not to comment - I suggest you take your own advice as already you are on VERY thin ice legally.

You seem to have been largely inaccurate on almost all you have said on this matter.

I understand you had difficulty understanding my comments - may I suggest you get someone to explain it to you carefully.

As for your silly name I am not surprised no one has heard of you as a person, were I you I too would hide behind a childish name, commensurate with the comments.

Regards,
Greg L-W.

We'll agree to disagree. I've been blogging for upwards of 5 years now, I've got a pretty good idea of what I can and can't say and I've been threatened by better armchair lawyers than you. Like I said, I've got better things to do with my time than respond to every sentence of drivel you write.

Hi,

As I said relative to you wasting our time with more of your ill informed comments:

Very wise of you not to comment - I suggest you take your own advice as already you are on VERY thin ice legally.

Seems you are incapable of keeping your own council!

You endeavoured to rebutt by saying:
We'll agree to disagree.

How sensible of you. However again you fail to take your own advice and rather childishly you boast of your prowess (sorry to shatter your illusions I've never heard of you nor heard of your blog).

You said:
I've been blogging for upwards of 5 years now, I've got a pretty good idea of what I can and can't say and I've been threatened by better armchair lawyers than you.

Do try not to be too foolish - where have I threatened you?

You continued:
Like I said, I've got better things to do with my time than respond to every sentence of drivel you write.

Then do us all a favour, be a good lad and run along and do them. Clearly you are unable to provide any facts merely childish snearing.

Cherio.

Greg L-W.
