UKIP: More Derek Clark & the Snooty Git Award goes to Bloom & Farage

Derek Clark: In it for the money and nothing else!

We note that Clark attended the UKIP conference. And there was us thinking that he was far too ill to attend such functions. After all, he declined to support the UKIP candidate in the recent Barnsley by-election on the grounds of ill-health and old age. Even Farage was unhappy with Derek over that excuse!

We also note that Derek Clark failed to attend the funeral of Geoffrey Kingscott. Working as Dippy Clark’s regional organiser and helping the man get elected to Brussels obviously counted for nothing in Clark’s book. Clark is a disgrace to the whole Euro-realist cause!

We received a copy of this email from one of our contacts. We feel that it deserves a wider circulation.

David Abbott was a member of UKIP’s NEC. He was thrown off it after trying to raise concerns about corruption in the party.

Today I went to the funeral of Geoffrey Kingscott. Last summer I went to the funeral of Piers Merchant. With the demise of these two friends, the withdrawalist movement, and UKIP in particular, have lost their two most scholarly, intelligent, eloquent, truthful and capable men.

Both had been major players in UKIP before the party began to devour its own for the benefit of the leadership cabal.

Geoffrey had been UKIP's most effective Party Secretary. He was reappointed by the NEC, but using trickery the cabal nullified this vote. Instead it had a person, judged incompetent by many, inserted into the position.

Geoffrey had published a number of books. A superb translator, master of six languages, he had established several successful translation companies. His Language Atlas is a Bible in the industry today. He was in high demand as a conference chair because he was a fair and just facilitator who could summarize complex issues superbly. He was also an outdoors man and a wonderful family man with a great sense of fun who was adored by his wife, children and grandchildren.

Among the mourners today were a former treasurer of UKIP, two former members of the NEC, and two branch chairmen.

Geoffrey was a patriot and loved his country. His book on the Shires of England will appear later this year and will become another part of his legacy.

Inspired by his own patriotism and by his belief that UKIP was not doing what it ought to be doing, Geoffrey once organized a conference in Somerset which drew hundreds of concerned UKIP members together.

We hope it will not be too long before a man with courage, integrity, competence and farsightedness which approaches that of Geoffrey's will emerge to help UKIP out of its doldrums.

The Snooty Git Award for February

For refusing to support campaigners lobbying for a change in European law that would force all new trucks to be fitted with the latest blind-spot equipment.

See this link for details:


The Evening Standard has also covered the story, and one of it's journalists tells us that they hope to do a follow-up article on UKIP's lack of support.

An appalled UKIP employee working in Brussels has said that the reason UKIP's MEPs were not prepared to sign any motion asking the Commission to act was because this would involve a recognition of the Commission's authority.

A somewhat ridiculous position to take, given that the Commission initiates legislation, on which UKIP actually votes in the plenary sessions - but only when the majority of them can be bothered to turn up!

To add insult to injury, the BNP representatives spoke with members of the group when they visited Strasbourg and gave them their full support.
