UKIP Titbits: NEC elections & Quote of the Week

The NEC elections

The election is over and the votes are being counted. The elections have been marred by the usual attempts to rig the vote.

1. More than one candidate is concerned that the number on the ballot sheet is not the same as the membership number. This leaves it open for another 1000 ballot sheets to ‘appear’ with Farage’s chosen seven clearly marked. It has happened before. How do you think Lisa Duffy got 'elected' to the NEC?

2. Bloom sent out a letter ‘advising’ members who they should vote for. This was in clear breach of the rules. See: LINK

3. Ms Daly was caught lying in her election address. She claimed to have been a candidate in the General and Euro elections. It was no surprise to see Farage’s useful idiots rush to her defence.

‘Wolfman’ McGough – via the British Democracy Forum – had this to say:

'Elections contested ' is open to wide interpretation as we campaign / contest many. A better more precise wording might have asked about being a candidate'.

No surprise to see the Wolfman justifying her lies. He was one of her assentors. He also has a track record of lying himself.

You may recall that he 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. He is probably best known for getting just 1% of the vote in a General Election, one of the lowest results in UKIP history!

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.

Rob McWhirter – another NEC candidate - was less than impressed with Ms Daly:

I read it as implying she was a candidate.

If she stood under a different name (I can't find her candidacy for either on the internet), then her entry should have made this clear.

Moreover, since UKIP requires candidates to be police vetted, leading people to think she was a candidate would imply she was vetted, and therefore a safe risk despite what Godfrey had said...


Steve Allison has investigated, and tells me that Paula, poor lass, misunderstood the term "contested", and took it to mean "was part of the campaign team".

Mike Nattrass will be surprised to learn I contested Crewe and Nantwich for UKIP in 2008, and I really want to see Frank Maloney's face when he finds I contested Barking this year, and the London mayoralty twice.

End of quotes.

So Ms Daly is admitting that she is too stupid to realise what ‘contested’ means! A perfect candidate for Farage’s NEC!

Here is the definition of ‘to contest an election’:

To strive to be elected.

To dispute the declared result of an election.

Seems pretty clear to us. Ms Daly is a liar.


UKIP Quote of the Week

From Herald Scotland

Tom Shields on … honesty in politics

Gaun yersel, Lord Pearson of Rannoch.

You may ask: why is the topic for today LPoR? That’s an abbreviation of his name, by the way. It’s to save space. Mind you, I’ve now wasted space explaining it’s an abbreviation.

A reader interrupts: can you just get on with it? Where should LPoR go and why should go himself?

Gaun yersel is a Scottish way of saying well done. LPoR was leader of the United Kingdom Independence Party. But he resigned, saying he wasn’t very good at it. And it was no fun. He also admitted he hadn’t bothered to read all of his party’s manifesto.

This is a remarkably honest approach. If LPoR is not careful he may bring politics into repute.

Next thing, UKIP will wind itself up, saying it’s not much of a political party with only the one policy of getting out of Europe.

Members might admit they only joined to get elected as an MEP and blag £3m in expenses.
