More Whittaker, more buffoonery
According to its website, UKIP has selected former party chairman John Whittaker as its candidate in Oldham East and Saddleworth. With Phil Woolas's future as an MP still in the balance, there is no certainty about when a by-election might be held or if there will be one at all.
Dr Whittaker stated that, "While court proceedings drag on, people are left without an MP. This is not acceptable."
Oh really, Dr John?
The same Dr John Whittaker ho never turned up for work as an MEP, saying that if he did go to work the Parliament would have to pay him an attendance allowance, and so he was doing the taxpayer a favour? The people of the North-West had 5 years without one of their MEPs. Now that was unacceptable.
The same Dr Whittaker who stood simultaneously in numerous constituencies in the 2005 general election, making a mockery of our democratic system?
Hypocrite and idiot that he is, Whittaker is the perfect front man for Farage's UKIP's buffoonery.
Could a revived UKIP be the British 'Tea Party?
Another interesting article from one of our contacts:
It's a question put by Ed West, a journalist writing in the Telegraph on line.
The answer to that question Mr West is, 'you cannot be serious'! So why pose it, why talk up the discredited shyster, Nigel the Spiv, alias Nigel Farage MEP?
Is it because you are ignorant of the sordid facts about the man? Somehow I doubt it!
Is it because by associating Nigel with the 'Tea Party' movement in the USA, you seek to diminish its impact here in the UK? Possibly!
Or did you write it as part of a 'talk up Nigel campaign' for some nefarious purpose? Quite possibly!
But just so as there's no mistake, the only Tea Party UKIP will attend, whilst it's hamstrung by having Nigel at its helm, is of the Alice in Wonderland variety!
Nigel the Spiv sits on the Fisheries Committee in the European Parliament.
Why is that?
Answer: because it involves the least work of any committee. In other words, it is an easy ride for a lazy MEP.
Even so, the degree of indolence displayed by the Spiv goes far beyond mere laziness:
Throughout the whole of 2009 and 2010, to date, there were only 20 meetings of the Fisheries Committee in the European Parliament. Nigel the Spiv attended two meetings - repeat, two meetings, or merely 10% of the total.
Do his constituents know this? We suspect not. Do those members who voted him back into the leadership know this? Almost certainly not. A salient fact to use against him the next time he chooses to wax eloquent about the EU stealing our Fish!
In a nutshell, we have someone who is well paid (Nigel the Spiv) but not delivering. In effect, a lazy, indolent and negligent MEP.
If any of you reading this happen to be fishermen, and members of UKIP, perhaps you could write to the Parliament's speaker - and don't forget to copy in all the heads of the various political parties in Europarl. - and complain that the very person who should be representing British fishing interests is too busy indulging himself elsewhere! Where is elsewhere? One might well speculate, but it's probably best not to go there.
Perhaps anyone who writes as suggested could complain that as the Spiv is not doing the job he was elected to do he may as well stay at home, excepting, occasionally, to trade insults with some poor unfortunate!.
Meanwhile, the most important Parliamentary Committee of all, Constitutional Affairs, has no UKIP MEP sitting on it. Could that be because most of them are, like the Spiv, are likewise too lazy to become involved in monitoring the transfer of power from the UK to the EU? Though yet again the buck for this omission stops with the Spiv. He's the boss, but hasn't bothered to do anything about it!
In any corporation, this degree of negligence by its Directors, let alone by its employees, would provide them with instant dismissal at the next AGM.
But UKIP can't afford to wait that long!
Don't take our word for it, the truth of the matter may be found on this link to the EU Parliament:
Nikki Sinclaire in The Telegraph
Nikki's court action against UKIP has been the subject of much discussion in media circles.
MEP: UKIP kicked me out because I was a lesbian
The UK Independence Party is to be taken to the High Court by an MEP claiming it discriminated against her because she was lesbian.
Nikki Sinclaire is taking action over Ukip withdrawing the whip from her in the European Parliament and preventing her standing for the Commons as a candidate for the party.
She claimed today that her treatment had been in breach of Ukip's constitution and was motivated by sexual orientation discrimination.
A directions hearing is to be held by the High Court today. The West Midlands MEP is also taking the party to an employment tribunal, with a preliminary hearing on December 28.
Ms Sinclaire was kicked out of the party after she refused to sit with the eurosceptic group Europe of Freedom and Democracy (EFD) which Ukip joined in the European Parliament last year.
She said she quit the EFD because it contained ''extreme elements'', including people with ''openly homophobic opinions''.
''I think that homophobic in itself the fact that they expected me to sit next to such people and engage with such people in the Parliament, while taking a holier-than-thou attitude to parties like the BNP (British National Party) in the UK,'' she said.
As well as withdrawing the whip from the MEP, Ukip's national executive committee also ended her position as the party's candidate for Meriden at the general election.
She said she still believed in the aims of Ukip, whose principal goal is to take the UK from the European Union, and would be prepared to be one of its MEPs again if it was ''more tolerant''.
''It is unacceptable in the 21st century for people to be marginalised and treated in an offensive and derogatory way on the grounds of their sexuality,'' the MEP said.
''This behaviour needs to be exposed, so that the party can move forward and I can get on with representing the people of the West Midlands and their causes, which I am so passionate about.''
Her solicitor Paul Daniels, of Russell Jones and Walker law firm, said: ''Ms Sinclaire has just commenced discrimination claims concerning the prejudices she considers present within certain parts of Ukip and its leadership, as she considers these prejudices need to be challenged so that all members are treated respectfully and fairly.
''Ms Sinclaire remains dedicated to the cause of Ukip, but will fight for equal opportunities for all, including the rights of minority groups as well.''
