UKIP: Pearson claims to have known nothing about bribes to Costa Rica


Lord Pearson - the Chairman of PWS at the time and former UKIP leader - has been busy telling anyone who will listen that he 'knew nothing' about £1.2 million being purloined from his company to be used as bribes in Costa Rica.

Bit worrying that Pearson didn't even notice the loss of such a large sum of money! Just another UKIP style administrative error?

From the Guardian:

Former PWS boss Julian Messent jailed for 21 months

Julian Messent admits funnelling £1.2m of corrupt payments to Costa Rica officials

A former chief executive of a City firm who admitted paying bribes to win contracts overseas was today jailed for 21 months. Julian Messent, 50, resigned in 2006 as chief executive at insurance firm PWS – founded by former Ukip leader Lord Pearson – after admitting funnelling £1.2m worth of corrupt payments to government officials in Costa Rica between February 1999 and June 2002.

The payments were made while Messent was a director of the company's international property division and his pay was directly linked to the amount of business he won, Southwark crown court heard. In 2003, he became the company's CEO.

Sentencing him to 21 months in prison for his part in authorising 41 corrupt payments in exchange for the contracts, Judge Rivlin told him his offences justified a four- to five-year prison sentence but that he had taken into account his early guilty plea and that he was a family man of previous good character.

The judge said: "It is plain, Mr Messent, that you were deeply involved in the decision making and the process of these crimes. You orchestrated them."

He also barred Messent from serving as a company director for five years and ordered him to pay the "people and government of Costa Rica" £100,000 in compensation within 21 days.

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!

Subject: Nikki Sinclaire MEP Succeeds In Homophobia Case Against UKIP

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'.

UKIP: Bloom continues to make an ass of himself while Agnew turns up to lobby for the NFU


In his comment on being fined 2000 euros for shouting a Nazi slogan, Bloom referred to being 'docked his lunch money'.

Yorkshire and the Humber region - for which Godfrey Bloom is an MEP - has a high unemployment rate. We wonder what his constituents will make of his total contempt for the taxpayers who have to fund his 'lunch money' ?

From The European Voice:

Another fine mess

UKIP MEP gets hit in the wallet.

Godfrey Bloom, a member of the European Parliament for the UK Independence Party, was given a €2,100 fine by Jerzy Buzek, the Parliament's president, on Monday (13 December). It was punishment for having shouted a Nazi slogan at Martin Schulz, the leader of the Socialists and Democrats group.

Buzek told the Parliament: “Given that Mr Bloom declined to apologise for his words, I have decided...to withhold seven days of allowances from Mr Bloom.”

Bloom was unrepentant and said that he would appeal against the punishment. “If they think docking my lunch-money will stop me speaking out on behalf of my constituents' welfare, they have another thing coming,” he said.

Bloom is the second UKIP MEP to be fined this year. Nigel Farage, the leader of the UKIP delegation, was fined €3,000 by Buzek in March for having compared Herman Van Rompuy, president of the European Council, to a “damp rag”.

As a fundraising stunt, UKIP is selling special “damp rag” tea towels emblazoned with an image of Van Rompuy for £5.

Orders are shipped only within the UK and it is up to the purchaser to make them damp. Never let it be said that UKIP is troubled by the niceties of common courtesy.

Stuart Agnew still lobbying for the NFU

We note that only Nikki Sinclaire, Mike Nattrass and Stuart Agnew could be bothered to attend today's European Parliament.



Agnew - who now advertises himself as an EFD MEP - was there to bitch about the European Commission's ban on battery cages for laying hens.

It is nice to know that Agnew is still very keen to lobby on behalf of the NFU. But how much are they paying him?

Agnew was once famously described by Farage as being "as thick as sh*t but he has money".

Stuart Agnew is currently under OLAF investigation for misusing his allowances to pay Peter Reeve, a UKIP regional organiser. See: LINK

Nikki Sinclaire on More Money for Politicians


From Nikki Sinclaire's blog:

More Money for Politicians - No Questions Asked

Yesterday evening (Monday December 13th), the European Parliament's Bureau had on its agenda an increase in the allowances of MEPs. The issue was listed on the agenda as a "decision without discussion". It was simply waved through without any debate.

MEPs have been awarded a 2.3% increase in all allowances except for those relating to direct travel costs.

British MEP Nikki Sinclaire is appalled -
"In an economic crisis, when tens of thousands of public sector workers are losing their jobs, and families are suffering, it is unnacceptable that well paid politicians can simply wave through increases in their already generous tax-free allowances without any discussion at all", she said. "I personally feel that it would be appropriate to freeze these payments at the very least. This is just another example of the greed and arrogance of the EU political elite".

UKIP: Godfrey Bloom Fined


From the Parliament.Com

UKIP deputy Godfrey Bloom has been "fined" seven day's subsistence allowance - just over €2000 - for his outspoken verbal attack on German Socialist leader Martin Schulz.

He said he would appeal against the decision which comes after he called Schulz "an undemocratic fascist" during a recent plenary session.

Bloom said, "If they think docking my lunch-money will stop me speaking out on behalf of my constituents' welfare, they have another thing coming."

"You notice immediately that they do not mention the issue of Schulz calling other MEPs "Nazis".

"In the EU, it is clearly, 'one rule for the goose, another for a gander.'

"The rule of law here is totally arbitrary and politically biased and I shall be appealing against this decision immediately.

A letter to Bloom from parliament's president Jerzy Buzek accuses him of acting in a "disrespectful and violent manner."

It says his actions "did not respect" parliamentary standards and his words "drawing a comparison between Schulz and Nazi Germany" were "offensive both to Schulz and other MEPs."

The letter goes on to say his intervention "severely disrupted" the "smooth conduct" of the plenary.

"Considering the offensive character of his intervention forfeiture of the daily allowance for seven days is considered appropriate."

UKIP: More Fascists to join the EFD


Michael Kaminski is the controversial Polish MEP who has torn apart the ECR group - to which the British Conservatives belong - in the European Parliament. It would appear that as a result of this, 11 members of the far-right Polish Law & Justice Party are now set to join UKIP's EFD group.


Farage will, of course, see this as extra money coming in. UKIP members, however, may ask what this means for our party.

What next, Nigel, the BNP?

UKIP: Trevor Colman is a waste of space



We get REALLY sick when we hear Trevor Colman moaning about Farage's dishonesty. He moans about Nikki Sinclaire's treatment at the hands of Farage. He moans about racism in the EFD. Etc, etc, etc. So do something about it! Is 'gutless' really your middle name?

Make a stand and leave the EFD or shut up!

Was the image of a strong straight talking UKIPPER, as portrayed by Trevor, prior to his election to the EU parliament, merely an illusion?

It would seem so, given his near invisibility since being given a spoon to the EU gravy train! And as for that much acclaimed backbone - it’s been non existent.

Far from being an outspoken critic of Nigel for demanding that UKIP MEP's sit alongside some of the most reprehensible people in EU Politics, Trevor has shamefully acquiesced.

Nor has he uttered a word against the scurrilous treatment meted out to Nikki Sinclaire. Not for Trevor the principled actions of Mike Nattrass, he's far too comfortable within the EFD!

And as for tremulous Trevor becoming a rallying point against the Spiv’s plan to drag UKIP into a pan EU coalition, dream on people!

Sadly, the only thing Trevor is interested in nowadays, is Trevor. He's raking in the cash and looking down his nose at all you who gave him the chance, whilst his bank balance grows by the day!

What I don't understand though is why UKIP members in the SW still give him such an easy ride. He really doesn't deserve it!

UKIP: Naughty!


UKIP can certainly pick them!

From Get Surrey:

UKIP candidate accused of false election claim

A FORMER UK Independence Party candidate has appeared in court accused of standing for election while disqualified from doing so.

Paul Clarke, 28, of Portland Drive, Merstham, appeared before magistrates in Redhill on Friday but made no plea.

The charge relates to his standing in the Reigate & Banstead borough council elections in May this year, in which he came fourth out of five candidates, receiving 236 votes in Merstham ward.

By his own request, Mr Clarke will appear at Guildford Crown Court for the next hearing, with a date set for January 12.

UKIP: Get Britain out of the EU


Please support the Daily Express' campaign to get Britain out the EU. Click here: LINK



We sincerely hope that The Express does not allow Farage to hijack the campaign. The last thing they need is that spiv using it to get even more publicity for himself! Farage is driven by ego and a desire to make lots of money out of the EU. His patriotism is a sham. When has he EVER donated large sums of money to the anti-EU cause? The answer is NEVER! He has done very well out of being an MEP. So why would he want to see that Gravy Train end?

UKIP Treachery

Justin Adams
Justin Adams has been remanded in custody until the 30th of this month. This concerns the allegations that he threatened Farage and a crash investigator. See: LINK

UKIP treachery


Anyone who still thinks that UKIP's corrupt leaders are fighting to get Britain out of the EU should consider this act of treachery from October. It is worth repeating as some blinkered UKIPPERS still believe that Farage and his chumps are doing a good job!

Ukip MEPs have again disgraced themselves. This time - and not for the first time - they have demonstrated that the parliamentary party is no more than an indolent but well-paid establishment steam vent. For on Wednesday 20th October, Ukip MEPs committed yet another unbelievable act of treachery to their nation.

How much more of this will UKIP's members tolerate???

This latest scandal relates to the EU Parliament's position on the 2011 draft budget as modified by the Council (all sections 12699/2010 - C7-0202/2010/2001(BUD)).

Amendment 17 by Goram Farm MEP and colleagues, on behalf of the S&D Group, moved as follows (wording in quotation marks refers to the new text within the amendment):

Quote

Motion for resolution, para 4:

4 Considers that "following" the entry into force of the TFEU, which strengthens EU policies and creates new fields of competence - notably Common Foreign and Security Policy, competitiveness and innovation, "energy policy", space, tourism, the fight against climate change, "sport and youth", social policy, energy policy, justice and home affairs - "the European Union should be endowed with the necessary financial means to attain its objectives" and therefore requires both branches of the budgetary authority to be coherent and consistent as regards increased financial capacities.



Unquote.

Quite apart from expanding the wording of the motion, to embrace "energy policy, sport and youth", the motion includes these words:

"..the European Union should be endowed with the necessary financial means to attain its objectives...".

So here we have Ukip's MEPs voting to equip the EU with the financial means (at UK taxpayers' expense) to meet its objectives of 'ever closer union'.

For heaven's sake, even the damnable Tories voted against this amendment, as did Nikki Sinclaire, Morten Messerschmidt and several others from the EFD (to which Ukip are affiliated), along with Andrew Brons and Nick Griffin of the BNP. Even Bloom, voted against. Perhaps he was sober.

Here's the list of the traitorous Ukip MEPs who voted in favour:

Stuart Agnew, Marta Andreasen, Gerard Batten, John Bufton, Derek Clark, William Dartmouth, Nigel Farage and last but not least, the odious Paul Nuttall.

By committing this act of treachery these MEP's thereby joined with the Socialists, Greens, Liberals, hard Left and Federalist parties of Europarl.

David Bannerman, Trevor Colman and Mike Nattrass were absent, so avoided being tarnished with the stench of collective treachery!

Wait for Farage to claim that he, and his nodding donkeys could not bring themselves to vote in the same category as Nikki Sinclaire, Morten Messerschmidt and the two BNP MEPs. Or maybe the Massa will dream up an even more implausible excuse!!! Watch this space!

Note: confirmation of the above may be found at the EU Parliament website, where links will be found to Wednesday's voting and the results of the individual votes thereon.

UKIP: Farage's biggest fascist pal


Don't forget that Nigel Farage, the odious Paul Nuttall, Trevor Colman, Gerard Batten, David Bannerman, Stuart Agnew, Derek Clark, Godfrey Bloom, John Bufton, Marta Andreasen & William Dartmouth are more than happy to sit with fascists in the EFD.

Nikki Sinclaire and Mike Nattrass voted with their feet and left the EFD. They both cited the racism of certain EFD MEPs as one of the reasons for leaving the group.

UKIP's EFD: Hitler would be proud of them all!

One of Nigel's biggest pals in the EFD is one Mario Borghezio.

Borghezio has multiple convictions for racially motivated violence, including an attack on a 12 year old child in 1991. In April 2000, during a regional election campaign, Lega Nord members chanted Borghezio's controversial "Prayer of the Gypsy", with its reference to the gassing of "nomads". He has also been filmed more recently explaining to a group of young fascists the need to infiltrate "mainstream" political organisations.

Borghezio has been linked with the neo-Nazi terrorist group "New Order". However, in a recent interview with Italian journalist Claudio Sabelli Fioretti, Borghezio admitted to his involvement with the Belgian Nazi Jean Thiriart, the founder of Young Europe, a group that espoused a united Europe "from Vladivostok to Dublin", organised in accordance with National Socialist principles.

"Lo stavo in un movimento rivale di Ordine Nuovo. Si chiamava Giovane Europa. Il leader era Jean Thiriart" he stated. This translates as: "I was in a rival movement of New Order. It was called Young Europe. The leader was Jean Thiriart".

Thiriart, a Belgian Nazi, was imprisoned after WW2 for his wartime activities, which included hunting down and killing resistance workers in occupied Europe. Thiriart trained under SS Lt Col Otto "Scarface" Skorzeny, and maintained strong links with him after his release from prison.

In fact, Skorzeny has been revealed to have had partial control over Young Europe at the time when Borghezio was a member.

Skorzeny was involved initially in Operation Werwolf, the Nazi resistance movement, and then subsequently in neo-Nazi terrorist groups across Europe. Evidence has emerged showing that Young Europe operated a number of paramilitary training camps, and that it was on the instructions of Skorzeny in the 1960s that these camps were closed down.

Associates of Thiriart were involved in an attempted Nazi coup in Belgium in 1973, and papers obtained this summer from Belgian police have helped researchers to prove ongoing links between a number of activists.

Given Borghezio's open support for fascism, and his record of racially motivated violence - his last arrest was as recently as 2007 - it is no wonder that he has started to attract the interests of prominent anti-fascists across the EU.

So why not contact your UKIP MEP and ask them why they are MORE than happy to sit with such scum?

UKIP: Nikki Sinclaire on the Euro


From Nikki's blog:

I can reveal that last week, whilst MEPs were in Strasbourg, a delegation from the European Commission paid a visit to London for hush-hush high level discussions with the British government concerning the perilous state of the Euro.

The same week, on Thursday, the heads of the Commission's Directorates were given orders not to discuss the Euro, or to speculate on its future, under any circumstances.

Just how bad is the economic crisis in the EU? Worse than the Commission would have us believe, it would appear. In the last hour it has been announced that three member states have had to apply for aid in order to deal with rising unemployment.

EU adjustment Fund aid worth more than €8.7 million for workers in Spain, Poland and the Netherlands was approved by Parliament's Budgets Committee this morning.

In total, 2,312 redundant workers (retail trade, car and construction sectors) in Spain, 779 former workers in the car and ship building industry in Poland and 613 ex-employees in the ICT sector in the Netherlands are set to receive support.

The Spanish authorities applied for aid to unemployed workers in three regions: Valencia (several firms in the construction and textile sector), Catalonia (the Lear company, producing electrical equipment for cars) and Aragón (several firms in the retail trade sector).

The two Polish applications concern the Wielkopolskie province (two firms in the car industry) and the H.Cegielski-Poznań company, the only Polish manufacturer of marine engines, plus its suppliers.

The Dutch application is for two ICT companies, Getronics and HP, in the region of Noord Holland.

UKIP: The Strange Case of the Death Threat


There has been a lot of speculation in UKIPPER circles after it emerged that the pilot of the plane which crashed with Farage on board had been charged with threatening to kill him.

We can confirm that Mr Adams at the first opportunity advised Farage that he was heavily insured and expected Farage to capitalise on this fact.

Adams was also far from happy with the delay of an official report exonerating him. See the report here: LINK

Last Friday, Farage claimed that he was being harassed.

We would not be remotely surprised if Justin Adams had been verbally 'difficult'. But crash victims can react this way. After all, he had been within minutes of plunging to his possible death!

However, the suggestion by the usual suspects that GLW was involved in encouraging Mr Adams to harass Farage is absolutely ridiculous! See: LINK

This particular saga reminds us of another death threat made during a row. It was made by a certain Nigel Farage to a certain John de Roek during a row.

Now what did Nigel say about him?

"For as little as £ 1,000, I could have him killed and his body disposed of."

So now Nigel knows how it feels!

Perhaps Mr Adams should raise this interesting fact during his trial!

So what does Nigel now think about his own threat to kill? We would love to know!

Here is a report from The Guardian concerning Mr Adams and his alleged threats against Farage:

The pilot of the plane that crashed with Ukip leader Nigel Farage on board has appeared in court charged with threatening to kill the politician in a separate incident.

Justin Adams, 45, also faces a charge of threatening to kill an air accident official who investigated the crash, which happened on the day of the general election.

He appeared before Oxford magistrates yesterday and was remanded in custody. He spoke only to confirm his name, age and address.

Adams was arrested by Thames Valley police on Sunday at his home in Buckland, near Faringdon, Oxfordshire, after calls were made alleging that on Friday he threatened to kill Farage and that on Sunday he similarly threatened a Civil Aviation Authority investigator. He is due to appear at Oxford crown court on 7 December.

Adams was at the controls of the Polish-made Wilga 35A light aircraft which came down in Hinton-in-the-Hedges airfield in Northamptonshire. A report by the Air Accident Investigation Branch (AAIB) found the crash was caused by the campaign banner the plane was trailing. Ropes used to tow the banner, which read "Vote for your country: Vote Ukip" had become caught on the tail of the aircraft, forcing it to nose-dive, said the report.

Farage managed to walk from the scene but suffered broken ribs, bruised lungs and facial injuries. Adams was trapped in the mangled wreckage. Seriously injured, he remained conscious and was airlifted to hospital, where he is understood to have undergone several operations.

The pilot, who recently moved to Oxfordshire from Walton-on-Thames, Surrey, ran a firm called Sky Banners.

At the time of the crash Farage was engaged in an unsuccessful attempt to oust the Commons speaker, John Bercow, from his Buckingham seat. Having led Ukip from 2006 to 2009, he had stepped down to concentrate on his election campaign but after coming third with just 8,401 votes he resumed leadership of the party on November 5.

Following publication of the crash report, the politician said: "I think the conclusion is the best for everyone. It was an accident, there we are, these things happen in life.

"I give thanks to the fact I got through it. I have never liked flying – always hated it, although I have done a fair bit of it as an MEP.

"Part of the flight on May 6 was an attempt to challenge my demons. Look how that ended up."

He added: "I wish the pilot the best of luck in his recovery. I know he's had several operations and was not in a good way at all."

UKIP: A Blooming Idiot


Today was not a good one for Godfrey Bloom.

The little chap was put on the carpet this morning by the President of the European Parliament, Jerzy Buzek. It was not, apparently, a pleasant experience for either of them. UKIP - sorry, EFD - staff have been trying desperately to spin the series of events that have led to UKIP being slammed across the world as "ya-boo hooligans", but even the most loyal of them are now showing signs of having had more than enough. "We came here to get Britain out of the EU", one of them said rather too loudly in the hearing of journalists, "not to embarrass the whole bloody country".

The cracks are showing, Nigel!
