We read with amusement the report that Marta Andersen - UKIP MEP and EU reformist - wants to become head of OLAF.
I will make OLAF investigations truly independent and efficient. If the EU wants to send a signal to the taxpayers of Europe that they want to stop abuse and financial irregularities then what better way to show this by hiring me for the job?
Today I challenge them to hire a straight shooter, and await their response.

So when can we expect her to give up her bedroom in Lord Pearson’s London flat?
And when will she turn her back on the electors of South East England who she currently represents from her Barcelona flat?
Andreasen is a liar, a fraud and has no interest in British independence from the EU.
Consider these facts:
In her book 'Brussels laid bare' she relates her experiences as the EU's chief accountant. This is a lie. She was never the chief accountant of the EU. There is no such post.
Her claim to have been dismissed from the Commission because she insisted on proper accounting is nonsense.
She was actually dismissed for failing he to produce a report - despite reminders - on how best to combat fraud in the EU.
She was sacked by the Commission after it was discovered that she had deceived them by not mentioning her suspension without pay from the OECD - the Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development.
She was suspended from the OECD after allegations of racism were made against her.
She does not live in the UK.
She does not pay UK taxes.
She is a supporter of the EU. She considers herself an ‘EU reformist’.
She has absolutely no loyalty to Britain or her constituents in the South East. Her knowledge of the region is almost nil. For instance, she didn’t even know that Canterbury was in Kent!
UKIP has an ethnic Danish MEP, who was born in Argentina, currently holds Spanish citizenship and lives in Barcelona. She also employs a Dutch researcher in Brussels who doesn't yet visit the UK on her behalf. So much for Farage's claim that UKIP supports British jobs for British workers!
One can only wonder why Farage was unable to find a suitable British born candidate with at least some working knowledge of the area they wished to represent?
She only expressed an interest in UKIP or it’s policies after three other parties - the Tories included - rejected her attempts to become one of their MEP candidates.
It should be remembered that Nigel Farage contemptuously ignored UKIP’s own selection rules so that Andreasen could become a UKIP candidate.
Lynnda Robson - Gerard Batten’s political assistant - made a formal complaint about this to both Christopher Gill and UKIP’s NEC.
In this complaint it was pointed out that Andreasen was ineligible to stand as a UKIP MEP candidate for the following reasons:
She was not a UK resident.
She was not a fully paid-up member of UKIP.
She could not get a CRB check.
Her proposer also proposed someone else.
She was not on the UK electoral Register and had no intention of mentioning that she was standing in two different regions.
Ms Robson’s complaint was rejected. She later took UKIP to court over this issue. UKIP’s leadership agreed to settle with her out of court.
Farage claims that getting Andreasen into OLAF will ensure ‘fair play’ for those UKIP MEPs accused of fraud!
The cynics would suggest that Farage wants to get Marta into OLAF so she can cover up evidence of UKIP fraud!
Andreasen has used the members of UKIP. She was never interested in getting Britain out of the EU.
Her only motivation is personal gain. Remember when she resigned as UKIP Treasurer after she was told by the odious Nuttall that she would no longer be paid for doing the job? See: LINK
All those who pointed out that Andreasen was a political prostitute have been proved right.
And who pushed for her to become an MEP? Nigel Farage.
And who supplied her with a UK address so she could stand as a UKIP candidate? Lord Pearson.
But at least Andreasen has no chance of becoming head of OLAF. Her atrocious employment record would be enough to discourage any employer with an ounce of sense from taking her on.
Apart from UKIP.
