Nikki Sinclaire wins her case against UKIP!


Excellent news! Just how many times does Farage and his sycophants have to lose a case before they finally realise that even they are not above the law? But will she get an apology from UKIP's NEC? Will she hell!

Farage and the whole bent lot should resign and crawl back into the gutter from whence they came. They are a disgrace to the whole Euro-realist movement!

PRESS RELEASE

NIKKI SINCLAIRE MEP SUCCEEDS IN HOMOPHOBIA CASE AGAINST UKIP

Issue date: Wednesday, December 22nd 2010

Nikki Sinclaire MEP has won her claim against the UK Independence Party on the grounds of Sexual Orientation Discrimination with her claim being described by Employment Judge Harper as 'well founded'. A Remedy Hearing to determine which sanction will be taken will take place on the 29th December 2010.

Ms. Sinclaire claimed her treatment by UKIP was partly due to her refusal to sit in the European Parliament with the Europe of Freedom and Democracy (EFD) Group which shares an allegiance with UKIP due to her misgivings about the 'offensive' ideology of Liga Nord and other extreme right-wing parties in the coalition. She states after her refusal, a campaign of intimidation followed from UKIP members, including Nigel Farage and Godfrey Bloom which resulted in the whip being removed and her being prevented from standing for the UK Independence Party as a parliamentary candidate in the General Election without any disciplinary procedure. Furthermore, other UKIP MEPs who refused to sit with EFD including Mike Nattrass were still allowed to represent UKIP which she believes is an example of the deep rooted homophobia within the party.

Additionally, Ms. Sinclaire who is openly gay was subjected to discrimination by senior party members such as Godfrey Bloom who labelled her a 'queer'.

The Remedy Hearing will be held at Exeter Employment Tribunal at 10.30am. Nikki states, 'I am extremely pleased with the tribunal’s decision. The treatment I received from UKIP is a sad indictment of how politics in the UK has not kept up in the 21st century. I have as much right as everyone else to express my beliefs and ask others to support my views. I should not have to suffer from such behaviour'.

According to The Telegraph (seemingly not on line), "UKIP lodged no defence ... and a default judgement was made in her favour.

"The party blamed an administrative error and said an application for the judgment to be set aside had been filed."

Same old, same old. And these loons want to be trusted with running the country.

It does take a rare level of incompetence to miss thye deadline for an Employment tribunal response. The 'management' of UKIP deserve congratulations especially as they will almost certainly saddle UKIP with the full costs. There's an unfortunate parallel with the BNP who seem equally careless with Tribunals.
