UKIP's Earl of Dartmouth: Nothing to do with me old Bean!

Photo by Andrew Edwards, UKIP's official artist and photographer. Is available for UKIP Conference. Cheaper than Derek Bennett!

The row over Dartmouth's links to a porn company continues. See: LINK.

Dartmouth has now issued a very brief statement:

I have never heard of the company mentioned in the Telegraph article ( Mandrake Column ).

I have had no dealings with the company mentioned in the article.


End of statement.

Our older readers may remember the Profumo scandal of the early 60's. While giving evidence at the trial of Stephen Ward, charged with living off the immoral earnings of Keeler and Rice-Davies, the latter made a famous riposte. When the prosecuting counsel pointed out that Lord Astor denied an affair or having even met her, she replied, "Well, he would, wouldn't he?" (often misquoted as "Well he would say that, wouldn't he?").

Hi,

I was interested in The Noble Earl's lame disassociation from his Porn Company which from the statement would seem to be:
'Mandrake's Column'

The impression given being that Wee Willie Dartmouth has much to live UP to.

I appreciate his problem yet Banks are perfectly capable of disassociating themselves from given industries for the sake of their good name - clearly Dartmouth was not concerned about his name but as a representative selected by Farage to represent UKIP he has a duty to the members (no pun intended) to ensure they can not be dragged into the gutter where he may choose to reside and profit.

Is it any wonder he is advertising in The Guardian for a Spin Doctor on a salary of twixt £75&80K - profits in porn have always been high but for the ethical it is a trade eschewed.

That Dartmouth has not checked his portfolio of businesses he directs speaks volumes of his competence and ethics.

No doubt a bordello in Central London called 'Lord Pearson's Place' would be hugely profitable.

After all 'The Duke of Wellington' in South Kensington has traded on its name very profitably for at least a Century as a pub.
