UKIP: More on Godfrey Bloom and the NEC elections

Readers of this blog will recall that Bloom has sought to influence the election by sending out a letter 'advising' members how they should vote. LINK

A copy of a marked ballot - see above - was also included with certain names marked as 'recommended' candidates.

Complaints have now been made to Zuckerman. There have been calls for the election to be halted pending an investigation into Bloom's attempt to rig the vote.

So who are the chosen few?

Jill Seymour
Mike McGough
Stephen Allison
John Harrison
Mike Hookem
Elizabeth Burton

And who put Bloom up to this? Look no further than Nigel Farage.

Farage is always clever enough to get others to do his dirty work. That way there is never any come back on him when the **** hits the fan.

And we are not the least bit surprised that he got Bloomers to do it. Bloom was never the sharpest knife in the box and has always been quite happy to be led by the nose.

How predictable that McGough, Harrison, Burton, Allison and Seymour are Farage's favoured sycophants!

This is what we had to say to about them in a previous post:

Elizabeth Burton

It was Elizabeth Burton who 'seconded' Douglas Denny's motion for the Ashford Call Centre to be taken under direct control of the NEC. She also seemed strangely indifferent to minor points such as first having the accounts audited.

When last on the NEC would frequently ask Farage how he wanted her to vote!

Thinks that it is natural for men to get erections in a hot bath. Gawain Towler was pleased with that one! For more on this see GLW's link at the bottom of this article.

Declines to give her age. It is not surprising when you consider that she is actually in her late 80’s! Farage sycophant. Assentors include Bloom, Oxley, Bown, Duffy and Malcolm Wood. Nuff said!

Steve Allison

Claims to be a reformist candidate. But why would a 'reformist' candidate want the likes of Bloom, Dartmouth and Bufton as his assentors? Has criticized Zuckerman’s 'Friends of Israel' which, you may recall, was set up as yet another Farage money making scam. Naughty!

His rather tasteless facebook site leaves a lot to be desired. His site profile includes a declared interest in Strangling Animals and Masturbating. Has he ever heard of the word gravitas?

We noticed that Mike Nattrass was listed as one of his assentors. But would Mike have done this if he had been aware that Mr Allison was behind a rather inept attempt to leak false information about him to yours truly?

Mr Allison claimed that Nattrass was going to join the BNP. A quick check revealed this to be false. The attempted smear was made at a crucial time when Mike was considering leaving the EFD Group and joining Nikki Sinclaire as an unattached MEP. Would Mr Allison care to explain why he did this?

Jill Seymour

Aged 52.

What can we say? Jill means well but lacks the courage to stand up to Farage and his sycophants. We have lost count of the times she has promised us to tackle Farage about corruption in UKIP. She always arrives at the Farmers Club full of optimism and a sense of purpose. But once there a quick glare from Nigel soon silences her into submission.

Dr Eric Edmond, Del Young and David Abbott will attest to that.

Jill Seymour: A tragic tale of wasted opportunities. Don’t waste your time.

Wolfman McGough

Aged 60. One of the most corrupt UKIPPERS ever to stand for the NEC. A classic Farage sycophant. No wonder Farage is desperate to get him onto the NEC!

Proposed by Farage in the hope that gullible members will be swayed by the ex-leader's approval of this dishonest lowlife.

His assentors include, Bannerman, Bloom, Curtis, Whittaker, Stephen Allison and Malcolm Wood.

You may recall that the Wolfman got into hot water after claiming in his MEP selection address to be the PPC for Harlow.

Here is the quote in question:

'am currently the prospective Parliamentary Candidate for Harlow'

This was a lie. The chairman for UKIP Harlow was less than amused!

Unfortunately, McGough made himself look even more foolish by failing to correct this error at ANY of the hustings held in the Eastern Region.

When challenged McGough vainly tried to defend himself by claiming that “he thought” he was the PPC for Harlow.

Apparently, he “thought” he had formally applied for the position. He also “thought” he had gone to a hustings where he “thought” members had elected him the PPC.

Clearly, McGough lives in a fantasy world where the normal laws of electioneering do not apply.

This is what Piers Merchant - UKIP’s Returning Officer - had to say:

“I also received complaints about Michael McGough, who, it was claimed, described himself as a UKIP PPC when he was not, thus seriously misleading the voters”.

His concerns were ignored by UKIP's corrupt NEC.

In another party the Wolfman would have been removed the from the MEP list and brought before a disciplinary committee for bringing the party into disrepute. But this is UKIP and you can get away with almost anything as long as you are prepared to condone leadership corruption.
The Wolfman also likes to illustrate his profound stupidity by posting moronic comments on the British Democracy Form.

It is interesting to note that McGough has been highly critical of Batten's decision to turn down an MEP pay rise. Has said that Batten should have taken the money EVEN after voting against such a pay increase. Such is McGough's morality. He has also gone on record as saying "If you wish to be moral don't go to Brussels and Strasbourg period!"

Is that why Mr McGough was so keen to become an MEP himself? But at least it is nice to know what he really thinks about Mr Batten's moral standards!

Would 'Tim' like to explain why Batten was happy to second the Wolfman's nomination papers?

Farage is said to be confident that McGough will get onto the NEC. We bet he is!

John Harrison

Aged 69. Has Godfrey Bloom has his proposer!

Bloom is one of the most corrupt MEPs in UKIP!

A few Bloom facts:

Bloom has admitted visiting brothels in Hong Kong, and said that the majority of prostitutes were not exploited: “In short, most girls do it because they want to". Perhaps he would like to tell that to the women forced into prostitution by criminal gangs

After a visit from female students at Cambridge to Bloom in the European Parliament, he was accused of sexual harassment and making a torrent of misogynist remarks. The students, who had in fact been there to show SUPPORT for Bloom, were shocked by his behaviour. One student wrote that Bloom touched her leg.

Mr Bloom asked a colleague ‘Isn’t she the most delicious bimbette? Absolutely thick, but good tits’. Of the businesswoman who he had invited to share the platform at the next day’s press conference, Mr Bloom had only four words: ‘big tits, very feisty’.”

Bloom denied the touching but not the comments.

The three British MEPs with the worst attendance record are David Bannerman, Paul Nuttall and Godfrey Bloom, each averaging under 63 per cent.

Bloom exploited a loophole to pay a relative to work for him.

He states on his website that he “employs no immediate members of his family on his secretarial allowance unlike most other MEPs”. However Victoria Skowronek, his 21-year-old secretarial assistant, is his niece.

Miss Skowronek also works for an investment company in which Bloom is a major shareholder.

Bloom applauded the French bombing of a Greenpeace ship. One man died in the attack.

Bloom secretly claimed a second EU pension. Another so-called 'Euro-sceptic' who is quite happy to reap the rewards of being a Euro MEP!

Bloom was banned from the Mansion House after a drunken outburst.

For more on Bloom: LINK

It is simply not good enough for one of his colleagues to say:

“But John was not aware of these things”.

We would advise Mr Williams to do a bit of research on Bloom - via the internet - before asking him to sign your papers in the future. It could save you a lot of embarrassment!

We were surprised to see Hookem's name. So much for his claim to be independent and not a tool of the cabal.

Sending a letter 'advising' members how to vote.


Excuse me Mr GB, but here in GB we are quite able to make up our own minds up on our own.

We don't need people 'directing' us or 'advising' us as to how to vote.

Perish the thought!

This is not Bingo you know. We don't just tick boxes because we are told to!

We think and reflect with the knowledge and information we have.

In a nutshell we make up our own minds up.

It's called 'democractic and fair elections'.

This is not Zimbabwe you know!

Godfrey is clearly trying to play God by telling members who to vote for in the NEC elections.

Bloomin cheek if you ask me! And arrogant too!
