UKIP: Alan Hardy responds to the article in Gazette Live


Alan Hardy responds to the article in Gazette Live. See: LINK

Dear Sirs,

I read the article connected to my successful action against Gordon Parkin and UKIP a few minutes ago on the internet.

As ever, Gordon Parkin was economical with the truth, indeed I have grave doubts as to whether he knows what the truth actually is. To begin with the exact total cost of the actions, which of course must be met by the rank and file membership of UKIP, while unknown to me is, I would conservatively estimate, not less than GBP 30,000.

I shall forward further details if you wish, but as far as I am concerned the whole matter boiled down to my being denied the opportunity to defend myself in the face of a ban placed upon me by Gordon Parkin in respect of attending meetings over which he presided. He failed to respond to calls for reason to prevail, hence the legal proceedings. My reason for so doing was simply that once we overlook a person's right to speak in their own defence, we may as well start building the gulags and concentration camps so beloved of those who thought as Gordon Parkin thinks.

The branch has not, as Mr Parkin claimed, been closed down. He attempted to do so at a meeting in August, but this was resisted and a new chairman, Mr Colin Rigg, has now secured permission from the party's National Executive Committee, to pursue its activities in Stockton on Tees. I further understand that once news of this reached Mr Parkin, one of his first actions was to attend Mr. Rigg's house and issue threats against him.

As far as I'm aware Mr Parkin currently holds the title of Regional Organiser for the north east, but in light of the events, as described, I find myself dounting if he will be allowed to continue in that role for much longer.

UKIP: Farage keeps on making an ass of himself



One has to wonder who bothers to do Farage's research. First he makes an ass of himself after falsely claiming that an immigrant was allowed to remain in Britain because of his cat. See LINK.

And then he sends out a message attacking Steven Baker MP for voting against a referendum on the EU. He later had to apologise to the MP after it was pointed out to an embarrassed Farage that Mr Baker had voted FOR a referendum.

If only Farage had bothered to read Junius. We published a full list of all those MPs who had voted in favour of holding a referendum on Britain's membership of the EU. Mr Baker's name was the second on the list!  LINK

From the Bucks Free Press:

NIGEL Farage, the leader of UKIP, has congratulated Wycombe MP Steve Baker for voting against the Government on an EU referendum – but only after a message on his behalf had blasted the Parliamentarian.

Mr Baker was one of 81 Tory rebels who defied David Cameron in a House of Commons vote this week on giving the country a vote on the UK's position in the European Union.

But a press release sent to the Bucks Free Press from the office of Mr Farage, one of ten South East England's European MPs, mistakenly criticised Mr Baker the day after.

A statement from Mr Farage, who unsuccessfully ran to become Princes Risborough's MP at the last General Election, said: “Despite two thirds of the people in this country expressing the view that they want to change our relationship with the EU to one simply of free trade and friendship, our MPs have other ideas.

“Sadly, for the people of Wycombe who voted for Steven Baker MP, cast iron guarantees have turned to rust.”

However, Mr Farage's office has apologised to Mr Baker, saying this original message had been sent incorrectly. It stressed the message was not from Mr Farage himself.

It then released the following statement from Mr Farage, which it said should have been sent originally.

“May I offer my congratulations to Steve Baker MP for standing up for the constituents of Wycombe and voting in favour of a referendum on our membership of the European Union,” it read.

“In doing what he did on Monday night he has demonstrated that he puts his country before his party and his career".

The £16,500 folly of UKIP and Nigel Farage




The Alan Hardy v UKIP saga finally comes to an end! See: LINK

And all because UKIP thought they could ignore their own membership rules. And all because Nigel Farage's ego wouldn't allow him to admit that UKIP was in the wrong!

We will be publishing the full court judgement shortly.

From Gazette Live:

A CLASH of personalities at a Teesside branch of a national political party has cost more than £16,000 in legal fees, its North-east organiser has claimed.

The UK Independence Party (UKIP) must carry the can after a row at its Stockton branch triggered a string of court appearances described by one judge as a “storm in a teacup”.

The “unfortunate and regrettable” falling out between Alan Hardy - the branch’s former press officer - and its then chairman Gordon Parkin sparked a legal marathon, London’s Appeal Court heard.

Mr Hardy, who joined UKIP in 2007, two years after he quit the British National Party, “did not get on” with Mr Parkin and, within months, resigned as press officer, telling Mr Parkin that he would not serve in any post on a branch which had him as chairman.

But Mr Hardy continued as a member of the branch and the atmosphere became so poisonous that a meeting in February 2009 had to be abandoned when the caretaker of the hall where it was held asked everyone to leave “on account of the noise from the raised voices”.

Appeal Court judge Sir Mark Potter said the row “escalated to national level” when, in February last year, UKIP’s head office rejected Mr Hardy’s bid to renew his membership, setting the scene for a legal row which culminated in the Appeal Court’s ruling yesterday.

At Middlesbrough County Court last November, Judge Peter Fox QC ruled Mr Hardy had been “wrongfully excluded from membership of UKIP in breach of contract”.

He was awarded £750 damages and UKIP was told to take him back as a member on payment of a £10 subscription.

Yesterday, Sir Mark Potter, sitting with Lord Justice Ward and Lord Justice Tomlinson, said Judge Fox had been right to rule that Mr Hardy’s membership of UKIP had never been lawfully terminated and to award him damages “in respect of the interference with his membership rights”.

The appeal judge said neither the Stockton branch, nor Mr Parkin personally, should have been joined as parties to the case, so Mr Hardy’s case against them failed. However the national party is now facing up to heavy legal costs after its appeal against Judge Fox’s decision was dismissed.

Speaking after the hearing, Gordon Parkin, 59, now UKIP North-east’s regional organiser, told the Gazette:

“Since all of this, the Stockton branch has been dissolved. Mr Hardy, like all the other members of that branch, are welcome to attend meetings in Middlesbrough and Hartlepool.”

Mr Parkin confirmed the whole process had been costly for the party.

He added: “I’m obviously happy that I wasn’t found to be at fault - but the whole thing, as far as I’m aware, came to about £16,500 in costs.”

At a preliminary hearing earlier this year, Lord Justice Ward described the dispute as “a storm in a teacup” after hearing Mr Hardy was by then back in the party.

The Gazette was not able to contact Mr Hardy for a comment.

A UKIP First: Nigel Farage shows some humility!



So Nigel Farage finally has the decency to acknowledge Nikki Sinclaire and the fact that her referendum petition triggered a debate in the UK Parliament. He even agreed to sign her petition after Nikki approached him outside Westminster. But what took him so long? Whatever next?

So is Nigel finally developing some humility? We can but live in hope!

True Democrats: A list of all those MPs who voted for a referendum on the EU


Here is a list of MPs who voted for a referendum on Britain's membership of the EU. We applaud all those Tory, Labour and Lib Dem MPs who had the courage to defy Cameron, Clegg and Miliband after their disgraceful attempt to gag democracy by imposing a three line whip on them.

We note that Cameron, Clegg and Miliband have the nerve to talk about restoring democracy to Libya. So how about restoring democracy to Britain by allowing the people a real say in how this country is governed? Fat chance under their corrupt rule! Such is their contempt for the will of the British people. 

The fight will continue!

The EU Commons Debate: Nikki Sinclaire Press Release


Ms Sinclaire MEP with supporting MP’s will be in Downing Street at 10.30am delivering the remainder of petition forms to the Prime Minister.

The Campaign vehicle largely responsible will be located fro 11am to 7pm at Old Palace Yard opposite the Houses of Parliament.

PRESS RELEASE


Sunday 23rd October 2011

‘GUARDIAN’ OF 100,000 PETITION THAT INSTIGATED THE DEBATE ON EU REFERENUM SLAMS MAIN POLITICAL PARTIES

The founder and coordinator of the 100,000 petition handed in to Downing street last month triggering off the process that has given the debate has criticized the main political parties for treating the petitioners and the electorate with contempt.

Independent MEP Nikki Sinclaire set up the cross party initiative ‘Campaign for a Referendum’ to give a say to the ordinary people sick and tired of the constant arguing on Brittan’s membership of the EU. The Campaign has been supported by many MPs from across the political spectrum.

Ms Sinclaire feels a strong responsibility for those who signed the petition saying “We submitted 100,000 voices to Downing Street and as the ‘Guardian’ of those people I feel the need to speak up for them”

The majority of the signatures were collected by Ms Sinclaire’s campaign bus that went town to town, city to city and canvassed huge support.

Ms Sinclaire says “The signatures were given in good faith by people who wanted to establish for once and for all the UK’s membership of the EU. We would have stuck by the verdict of the people, but the politicians don’t trust democracy any more. They won’t allow us to have our say. We’ve forced them to have the debate, but they have imposed whips. This shows complete contempt for the people who gave them their positions.”

Nikki is urging all MP’s of whatever political persuasion to defy the whips and vote for what the people who put them into power want.

Recent YouGov polls show an overwhelming majority of the electorate want a referendum with 52% would vote to leave and only 30% would vote to remain in the EU.

Nikki, an independent MEP, added: "Clearly the people of Britain want to decide who governs Britain. It must be alarming to the government that despite all their assurances on sovereignty and cast iron promises, more and more people have given up on this European project. This argument has gone on far too long, we must decide our course once and for all in a binding referendum"

Ms Sinclaire will deliver the remainder of the petition forms to Downing Street tomorrow morning at 10.30 am with supporting MPs making the total submitted in excess of 120,000.

Ends

Note to Editors.

The Campaign website is http://www.haveyoursay.eu/

The Campaign vehicle that collected the signatures will be situated to Old palace yard opposite the Houses of Parliament from 11am to 7pm tomorrow Monday 24th October

NIKKI SINCLAIRE and supporters will be on College Green, Westminster on Monday, 24th October. NIKKI is available for interview on 23rd, 24th and 25th.

For further information Nikki Sinclaire MEP can be contacted at: 0794 146 1255

UKIP: EFD MEP praises Gaddafi as 'a great leader'


It came as no surprise to learn that Mario Borghezio, Farage's friend and colleague, thinks that Col Gaddafi was “a great leader, a true revolutionary who should not be confused with the new Libyan leadership swept into power by NATO's bayonets and by oil multinationals”. The fact that Gaddafi was a tyrant, terrorist and murderer appears to be of no concern to Lega Nord's wannabe Mussolini.

But should we so surprised? After all, 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.

You may recall that Borghezio was suspended from his own party, Lega Nord, in Italy for one month, but  still remained a full member of the EFD. His suspension followed his comments in response to the tragedy in Norway where seventy-six people, including children, were killed by Anders Behring Breivik.

Borghezio, described the ideas of Breivik as "good" and "excellent".

So will Farage, Batten, the odious Nuttall, Bufton, Clark, Bloom and the rest of that sordid clique condemn their EFD colleague's latest comments? We await their reaction with interest!

From New Europe:

The death of the Libyan leader was welcomed by European leaders. The Council and Commission Presidents issued a joint statement saying that the despot’s demise, “marks the end of an era of despotism and repression from which the Libyan people have suffered for too long".

EU High Representative Catherine Ashton issued a separate statement, saying, “If confirmed, his death brings closure to a tragic period in the lives of so many Libyans.”

However Lega Nord MEP Mario Borghezio, whose proximity to sanity is doubted by many, took a different line, praising Gaddafi in a statement saying: “The end of Gaddafi, who died fighting surrounded by his remaining loyalists, is undoubtedly a glorious one.” He added that Gaddafi deserved “chivalrous” respect as a “Templar of Allah”.

He also said Gaddafi was, “a great leader, a true revolutionary who should not be confused with the new Libyan leadership swept into power by NATO's bayonets and by oil multinationals”.

Godfrey Bloom spits in the face of the UKIP membership


The UKIP membership may have rejected the concept of Pan-European political parties, but that has not stopped good old Godders. The European Alliance for Freedom seems to have a new address in the Godmeister's constituency, in Selby indeed! http://www.eurallfree.org/?q=node/65

But even more interesting is this missive from the Neo-Nazi Vlaams Belaang, in which they discuss their own membership of the EAF, even naming Godders as President of this Pan-European party.
Nice.....!

Taken from The Flemish Republic, newsletter of the Vlaams Belang:

Philip Claeys, member of the European Parliament for the Vlaams Belang, joined the recently established European Alliance for Freedom (EAF), a pan-European alliance of Members of the European Parliament, together with national and regional parliamentarians and parties, united under a political platform calling for national freedom and democracy in opposition to centralised, supranational control. Th EAF is one of eleven ‘European Political Parties at a European Level’ and is partially funded by the European Parliament.

The EAF advocates the right of individuals and peoples to freedom and selfdetermination. Its main objective is to safeguard and strengthen fundamental democratic principles and accountable representation towards effective individual and national freedom.

It therefore commits itself to the following objectives:

Nikki Sinclaire on the Daily Politics


An excellent interview.

What a pity that Farage and his sycophants tried to sabotage her EU referendum petition by 'advising' UKIPPERS not to sign it. Hardly the actions of people committed to British withdrawal! Fortunately, the majority of members ignored them and signed it anyway.

House of Commons to debate British membership of the EU!



So Nikki's referendum petition has succeeded in getting a debate in the Commons! Fantastic news! And still the signatures keep rolling in!  Today, she also appeared on the BBC's Daily Politics to talk about her successful campaign.

So in just over two years Nikki Sinclaire has succeeded in doing something that Farage and his sycophants have failed to do in over a decade. Need we say more?

Press Release - House of Commons to debate British membership of the EU

The historic House of Commons debate on if the UK should be allowed a referendum on whether to pull out of the European Union is set to take place next week on Thursday the 27th of October 2011 from mid-day onwards in the main chamber. This follows the presentation to Downing Street of a petition calling for a referendum.

If MPs vote in favour of a referendum, David Cameron will come under huge pressure to offer the British public a chance to say for once and for all if they want to withdraw from the EU.


The Commons Backbench Business Committee met this afternoon to set the date. Nikki Sinclaire MEP who instigated and then delivered, along with a broad cross-party delegation of MPs and MEPs, the petition of over 120,000 signatures to No 10 Downing Street said "This is a victory for democracy, and for the common man whose voice has been ignored for too long. It has been a long haul, but gathering these signatures has been a great experience, and my thanks go out to all those people who worked so tirelessly to make this happen".

The motion that has been submitted for debate is:

This House calls upon the Government to introduce a Bill in the next session of Parliament to provide for the holding of a national referendum on whether the United Kingdom



(a) should remain a member of the European Union
(b) leave the European Union
(c) re-negotiate the terms of its membership in order to create a new relationship based on trade and co-operation.


Nikki Sinclaire has vowed to keep the pressure on David Cameron and his government. "The signatures keep coming in" she said today, "and next Thursday we will be back at the door of 10 Downing Street with even more. The people are speaking out now, the government must listen."

UKIP: Farage and that Peruvian cat



We note that some UKIPPERS, including Farage, are rather pleased that Theresa May, during a Tory conference, 'borrowed' a few lines from one of Nigel's speeches. It concerned a Bolivian immigrant who, it was claimed, could not be deported because of his cat. May's 'theft' of the story is being cited by Farage's useful idiots as an example of how the Tories are nicking UKIP's ideas and peddling them as their own.

But we are far more interested in Farage's original version of the story as told by him during a meeting in Eastleigh, Kent. He claimed that the immigrant was a cat owning Peruvian guilty of manslaughter! A quick check of the facts reveals that Nigel 'I'm not making this up' Farage was lying. The immigrant, apart from overstaying his visa, was a law abiding citizen from Bolivia. The only accurate part of Farage's story was the fact that the man owned a cat! And he didn't escape deportation because of the cat!

How can anyone still believe a word that Farage says? He is nothing more than a lying, corrupt spiv.

Here are the relevant extracts (lies) from the two speeches.....

UKIP: Christine Hamilton to stand as MEP?



Christine Hamilton is, as anybody who has met her will attest, a charming lady. But UKIP members in the South West are not too happy with her at the moment - having had disgraced former Tory Neil Hamilton forced on them, possibly to head the party list in the region in 2014, there are now rumours that Mrs Hamilton will also be standing, probably occupying the slot below him.

Mrs Hamilton has a knack of spending her time with 'colourful' characters. As Christine Holman she was PA to the delightful Gerald Nabarro. Nabarro was never one to pull his punches, and in 1963 during a debate on immigration he asked the question "How would you feel if your daughter wanted to marry a big buck nigger with the prospect of coffee-coloured grandchildren?". In 1971 Nabarro was charged with a serious driving offence, but was acquitted after claiming that his secretary had been driving his car. Neither press nor the public bought the story, however, and his career was ended by the scandal. Chris Huhne take note.

Subsequently, Christine went to work for Micheal Grylls, an MP who was to provide her with a taste of things to come when he was accused of misleading parliament over payments he had taken to introduce commercial clients to senior politicians. The money was taken from the company of Ian Greer, which was to be the catalyst for the fall from grace of Neil Hamilton.

She has also been associated with Harvey Proctor, who infamously was exposed for holding 'spanking sessions' with teenage male prostitutes.

After marrying Neil Hamilton, the couple acquired the collective nickname of 'Mr & Mrs Cash n Carry'. On one occasion they stayed at the Ritz hotel courtesy of Mohammed Fayed, where they once ran up a bill of over £2000 on 'extras' alone.

Junius has touched previously upon the charges faced by the Hamiltons, and the whole ghastly mess need not be discussed in detail again. But given that Neil Hamilton lost his seat to Martin Bell after being exposed in the cash for questions scandal, it is worth leaving the last words to his wife Christine. "If he's corrupt, I'm corrupt", she famously said. Good luck UKIP SW.

UKIP: Godfrey Bloom's 'Swinton' meeting draws in the crowds!



On October 6th, Godfrey Bloom attended a meeting in London of the breakaway BNP faction of the Swinton Circle. He had been invited by Allan Robertson, who was expelled from the Swinton Circle after he had facilitated the infiltration of the group by BNP activists, including convicted fraudster and wannabe arms dealer Gregory Lauder Frost and the late unlamented Mike 'Scruffy' Smith, believed to be a close associate of Nigel Farage. Robertson continues to hold occasional meetings under the name of the Swinton Circle, along with gay rights activist and Ulster Loyalist Christopher Luke.

The meeting was not well attended - there were just 10 people in the room including Robertson and Bloom.

UKIP: The failings of Derek Clark MEP



A damning indictment of probably UKIP's most incompetent MEP. Written by someone in the know!

Sir/Madam

Re Derek Clarke MEP

I have personally known Derek since before the 2004 EU campaign and although this letter seems personal, I feel that his situation in the party needs addressing. You will all realise that Derek, like myself, is getting on in years and has limitations of what he can do and what is expected of him by the East Midland Members of the UKIP party. Everyone has heard stories of him falling asleep in the EU Parliament and at airports, this is not the publicity wanted by the party and is not encouragement for younger active members to stay in the party. After all these younger members are needed to move our party forward.

As a person Derek is a very nice gentleman but, unfortunately, it doesn’t take an Einstein to see that he is incapable of effectively carrying out his position in his current post as a UKIP MEP. I saw him on one of the days at the last EU campaign and although he was there in person, he did not play an active part with the team on the streets.

Over the last seven years this region has not moved forward, since the departure of Kilroy-Silk, which indicates that Derek’s ability has been a contributory factor in this.

I am outlining the following issues regarding Derek which I feel you should take on board.

1. His closure of regional office leaving the party without one, leaving only his personal office which is not very accessible to the public.

2. Derek dismissed two of his employees/activists on the grounds that there were not suitable for UKIP if this was the case, as Derek knew them before hand, why did he employ them.

3. Lib Dems keep churning out masses of leaflets across our council wards and we have to ask ourselves why we haven’t had any from Derek?

4. Why have we only stood at one County Show across the East Midland Region in the last year?

5. Why has Derek not done any regular surgeries with the public across our region?

6. There has been no extra effort into the effects that the EU and its regulations has had on our East Midland workers at power plants, new infrastructures or Bombardier, in Derby. Again you have to ask yourself why not? Although he attended the Bombardier Union Rally the people of Derby did not know who he was, even though he had been their MEP for seven years. Hid did not speak on the platform because he did not have the common sense to arrange it with the Union Leaders. He has never had any meetings with the Bombardier board of directors or CEO’s and he has never met the workers in situ.

7. Although he has attended some branch meetings, he has never taken on board the need to talk to the general public/voters in the UK and has just settled to preaching to the UKIP loyalists. The party need him to inspire and drive activists forward.

8. During the last seven years we have only had one copy of a regional newspaper as Derek has not supported publication of this.

9. Everyone knows the EU is slowly crumbling with the situation getting worse and that the majority of the public are, in principle, against the EU. Instead of our membership increasing during his seven years in office it has stagnated and been vastly reduced, since the days of Kilroy-Silk. We now have fewer activists on the ground as most of the members are, like Derek and I, too old to actively campaign for the party.

10. We have no ongoing East Midland campaign strategy to gain seats in Westminster and in this respect, Derek has failed UKIP and its members.

11. I strongly believe that because of Derek’s age, and without being ageist, he’ll be too old to carry out his post and duties as an MEP candidate. Our East Midland Members loaned funds for the campaign to get Kilroy-Silk and Derek elected. We need to ask ourselves where is the next £80,000.00 going to come from for the next election in order to campaign properly.

12. We are all fully aware of the part Derek played in the Leicester By Election/Mayoral Election and his subsequent apologies for not stopping the debacle that ensued. The position regarding this was as follows:- The mayoral candidate which he supported was not a UKIP member, not even a UKIP supporter and did not pass any UKIP assessments. She was enrolled as a candidate outside some school gates and had never been a political activist. During the campaign she did not release any photographs, information or any public statements about herself or her policies. She did not attend any hustings or reply to any newspapers, tv or radio stations. She did not give any information to her own campaign team which caused a local neutral newspaper to ridicule UKIP, stating not to vote for its paper Mayoral candidate. Our parachuted parliamentary candidate in Leicester was even a bigger joke. His anti Muslim rants actual made him very unpopular. Leicester is mostly a Muslim area and this situation made some of our activist very wary for their own safety. His rant on You Tube outside the local press office made it more bazaar. We have to ask why the NEC, EMCC Chairman and MEP condoned these ridiculous candidates over and above good local UKIP members/activists. This whole situation has damaged UKIP’s standing in Leicester.

13. Adrian Haynes, one of our general election candidates, was twice asked to stand down by Lord Pearson, even though he was actively campaigning and distributing leaflets for over a year in his constituency. On the first occasion he was asked and Adrian refused, and at this point in time Derek should have supported him and stood by him and requested that Lord Pearson should not ask again, but he let this happen.

14. East Midlands Area does not have a UKIP Exhibition stand or stall with the appropriate advertising regalia like others in the party.

15. Derek has never encouraged pro active UKIP ideas or campaigning in this region. He does not realise the importance of being pro active in the UK and his position is not just to sit on EU committees feeding his
own ego.

16. Derek has stated to the East Midlands County Committee that he had never been and was not under any type of investigation from the EU OLAF department, re any fraudulent misappropriation of his EU office running expenses. It has come to light from fellow MEP, Marta Andreason, that he has been wrongly spending his EU expenses and has been ordered to pay a large sum of monies back to the EU because of this. One leading tabloid newspaper has apparently got all of this information and has not yet made this public. We can only believe that this has not been done so because they are with holding this information, to make a press release nearer to the next EU elections to seriously damaged UKIP’s credibility. You can imagine what headline this would make. Derek will probably want to retain his position as an MEP as long as possible to repay these monies. His best action would be to stand down and take his vast EU Pension package, on top of his teachers and state pension he already receives.

17. Derek has been using a 20 year old photograph of himself and at almost 80, most of the members do not realise his actual age and most have probably never seen him in person.

In the light of all the information we know about Derek , we think now is the time for him to go, if we are to stand any chances in future elections and improve our standings in the East Midlands.

This letter has been sent to Nigel Farrage, all of our MEP’s and each East Midland Branch Chairmen for them to distribute a copy to their branch. Hopefully Nigel will persuade Derek to stand down and give UKIP half a chance in the East Midlands.

Yours sincerely,
Long Standing UKIP Member and Activist

UKIP: The odious Paul Nuttall MEP, Lord Hesketh & Dr Edmond on the NEC elections

The odious Paul Nuttall and How Not to Do Politics

Is there anyone out there who still thinks that the odious Paul Nuttall would make a good future leader of UKIP? Then why not listen to his dire appearance on 'Any Questions'? Inept isn't the word to describe it!

The level of his debating skills is best illustrated by his describing Ed Miliband as looking weird and in need of a a lobotomy.  Dimbleby even had to remind the wannabe leader that he was a member of UKIP! It was all downhill from that point on. Click here to listen to the fool.

Lord Hesketh

Much has been made of the fact that Lord Hesketh has abandoned the Tories for UKIP. Hardly news when you consider that he is just another failed Tory seeking a place on a sinking ship.

NEC elections

The NEC elections are approaching. The NEC is dominated by Farage's sycophants and is nothing more than a mouthpiece for Fuhrer Farage. Just ask Steve Allison. He actually thought that his opinions would count for something when first elected to that body. He is now sadder but much wiser! See: LINK

Here is Dr Edmond's analysis of the candidates.

Last year I published a marked card of NEC candidates. Many people last year told me they found it helpful to know where candidates loyalties lay.  By overwhelming popular request I repeat this for this years runners and riders.

The two outstanding independent thinking candidates are:

David Rowlands
Mike Smith

both include one MEP , John Bufton and Trevor Colman as seconders. Trevor is now Independent UKIP and John is veering that way. I have worked with John and Trevor in the South West and I can vouch for their honesty, integrity and dedication to our cause. Both Mr Rowlands   and Mr Smith have real experience and are not reliant financially in any way on UKIP.

Then I would put those apparently untainted by Cabal and Young Independence (Farage youth) influence, no MEPs or party paid hacks amongst their proposers,

David Black
Nigel Carter
Charles Dodman
Michael Thomas

(The last is seconded by Julia Reid who I know can stand up to Farage)

If you want an independent NEC representing and upholding UKIP's aims and ideals then I suggest you vote for the first two above. Unlike the Cabal they are definitely not in UKIP for personal gain and as such represent the true ethos and spirit of UKIP.

The remainder are tainted by a mixture of MEP  and party hack support and  youth lacking experience. An easy target for Farage dangled Brussels baubles and finance. Most are to a greater or lesser extent Farage sycophants with some indeed supported by Farage himself or his long time associates Nuttall and  Malcolm Wood.

I see D Denny, another long time Farage supporter, boasts of being involved in  altering the party constitution yet again! So if you  want less party democracy in UKIP and more rule from the top think carefully about how you vote.

Neil Hamilton has more political baggage than Jacob Marley's ghost but I can see one good reason for having him on board. He would be a credible alternative leader to Nigel Farage! I anticipate there will be increasing unhappiness in UKIP when Farage pushes on with his pan European party. There will be resulting leadership challenge. UKIP needs a complete clear out at the top and Mr Hamilton and his wife might just do that.

UKIP: More from the True Finns



More from UKIP's fascist allies in the EFD.

From 'The Truth about the True Finns' blog:

According to an international study into extremist groups, some True Finn members condone political violence. This is part of a Europe-wide study on the rise of populist sentiment and seems to be a far-reaching phenomenon. The study mentions specifically internet sites which condone hatred and promote violence, without mention of blogger and popular racist Jussi Halla-aho's webforum Homma. Shockingly, the study was conducted after the Oslo massacre in which a radical racist targeted leftist politicians, leaving 77 dead.


Matti Putkonen, rapist, violent criminal, True Finn campaign manager

The study was swiftly condemned by the True Finns' campaign manager, Matti Putkonen. Putkonen is of course remembered as a violent criminal, having been convicted of aggravated rape to an eight-month custodial sentence. He also had to pay a €10,000 fine, presumably to cover medical harm. Speaking at a live radio show, Putkonen called for the female chief of staff at the Ministry of Interior who published the study to resign, and said that the True Finn party does not condone violence. Thankfully, things did not escalate further this time as mr Putkonen was safely at the other end of the telephone line.

Matti Putkonen, rapist and habitual political opportunist is probably the best example of the True Finn hypocrisy when it comes to their value base. Former member of the Social Democratic party, former media rep for a labour union, Putkonen grabbed at the chance to jump ship just as soon as the polls showed a double-figure rise in support for the True Finn party. In a civilised society he would be on some kind of a registry already, and barred from holding a political office.

UKIP: True Finn MP plays Nazi card


Interesting article taken from a blog devoted to exposing UKIP's fascist allies in the EFD. No wonder Nikki, Mike and Trevor walked from that sordid group! So why are the rest of UKIP's MEPs happy to sit with fascists?

True Finn MP plays the Nazi card

You all might remember the quote "Whenever I hear the word culture, I reach for my gun." It's frequently misattributed to Hermann Goering, but it actually comes from a pro-nazi play called Schlageter. People usually quote this to point out the brutality and violence of the national socialist regime, well normal people do that. True Finn MP Jussi Niinistö whom I've blogged about before apparently uses the phrase completely without irony.

Jussi Niinistö, you can't see his hands but they're reaching for his gun

Helsingin Sanomat reported that in a parliamentary session this Tuesday, Jussi Niinistö said he is a strong proponent of expanded presidential powers, and that
"whenever I hear the word parliamentarism, I reach for my gun". Let's just re-iterate that this quote is frequently raised as an example of the despicable brutality of the nazi regime, it's certainly not a phrase that is in common use in Finland and would probably be in itself enough to send you to prison in Germany. Needless to say, this caused quite a bit of a scene in the session, and probably will haunt mr Niinistö for months to come.

UKIP: The sordid activities of John Ison, Mark Croucher and Paul Nuttall



In March of this year, an e-mail emerged suggesting that UKIP's Mark Croucher had been receiving information stolen from an MEP's office. The e-mail contained dozens of highly sensitive and personal documents, relating to the MEP, and was sent by John Ison to winballpizard@yahoo.co.uk. It seems that this e-mail address belongs to Mark Croucher.

Mark Croucher

-----Original Message-----
; From: John P Ison [mailto:tb10@aol.com]
; Sent: 19 April 2010 10:14


; To: 'winballpizard@yahoo.co.uk'
; Subject: Download this NOT the others!!

Previously, in September 2010, immediately before the Party Conference in Torquay, Ison was believed to have met with members of UKIP's NEC, and is believed to have colluded in making vexatious allegations against Nikki Sinclaire. The allegations were to be orchestrated, with a blog posting by political pundit Iain Dale being the catalyst by which the media were to be drawn in. Dale was not happy at being duped. Quick action ascertained within hours that there were no complaints against Sinclaire, nor was any police force investigating her for any reason whatsoever. The story got nowhere.

But now a new dimension can be added to this rather sordid little man's tale. Ison was allegedly on Paul Nuttall's payroll.


The odious Paul Nuttall

The dates between which he was employed by Nuttall are uncertain, but this suggests that the UKIP hierarchy was not only party to criminal activity, in that an official received stolen information, but that it possibly sanctioned and even paid for it.

UKIP: Sam Farage


There was a certain amount of controversy a while ago concerning allegations that Nigel Farage had put his son, Sam, on the payroll alongside his wife. The story was untrue, but as they say, there is no smoke without fire, and the truth can now be told.

It was allegedly Graham Booth who arranged for the younger Farage to take up a position in a well known retail outlet in the south west; the proprietor being a long-standing UKIP supporter. Sadly, something did not go well, and the youngster was allegedly dismissed on his first day, causing bad feeling all round.

The exact circumstances surrounding the episode are unclear.

Nikki Sinclaire MEP challenges David Cameron to give the British people a Referendum on the EU


From Nikki's blog:


I had the opportunity to challenge the Prime Minister to give us a referendum on our membership of the European Union. As ever he was evasive but acknowledged the 100,000 petition that was delivered by me and other MEPs and Mp's.

more later.

To read the original: LINK

Thanks to Nikki's petition, MPs will now have to debate the issue in Parliament before Christmas. See: LINK

More from Nikki's blog:

Nikki wants a referendum so everybody has a chance to register their say on whether we should be a part of the European Union, and the West Midlands has contributed over half of the 100,000 signature total.

Anyone under the age of 54 has never had the chance to speak about this issue, which Nikki believes is a breach of our democratic principles. The last time the UK held a referendum on the Common Market, as it was known then, was in 1975 – and even this was retrospective. Despite the fact that this campaign could leave Ms Sinclaire without a job, Nikki is passionate that people be given a voice in deciding whether it is right that:

· The UK contributes £48 million per day to the EU
· 75% of UK laws are decided by the EU yet the UK only has 72 MEPs in the Parliament out of a total of 736 MEPs
· Each day we buy £5 million more from EU countries than they buy from us.

Commenting on her “Have Your Say” campaign, Nikki Sinclaire said,
“European Law is rarely conducive or indeed relevant to British industry or infrastructure. The EU takes almost £50 million a day of our money for the privilege of belonging - money better spent in this country, where we need it most - on our hospitals, on our schools and in supporting our pensioners. When will the political elite realise that Britain cannot afford to remain in this Parliament?”

UKIP: Derek Clark MEP & the OLAF investigation


We are pleased to be informed by our sources that Derek Clark has been ordered by OLAF to pay back around £30,000 after they found him guilty of False Accounting and Money Laundering. The files are now with the East Midlands police.

Clark has always denied being under OLAF investigation when questioned by concerned UKIPPERS.

Derek Clark OLAF Case Number: D/007/033/04.09.08

Derek Clark OLAF Investigation Number: DD/FD- D2008.A1/7133/OF/2008/0240



Clark should now do the decent thing and fall on his sword. Nothing else is acceptable. The man lied to the membership and has been exposed as yet another dishonest MEP.

Bob Lomas on Nigel Farage & the failure of UKIP



Interesting comments from Bob Lomas of The Magna Carta Society. He made them after watching a video of Farage making a speech:

Subject: Fw: Nigel; Farage in action - again! - Latest...but not dated!
Date: Thu, 29 Sep 2011 07:58:19 +0100
From: LOMAS
To: AA BOB LOMAS


Another skilful and entertaining delivery by Nigel Farage, but to what possible purpose, what is to be gained by it or from it? The whole idea and principle of the EU is the destruction of the nation states of Europe including this nation state which makes the EU an enemy of this nation. Standing in the midst of EU advocates pontificating criticisms will not alter or change that fact one iota. But of course there is a reason for so doing. Nigel Farage and his fellow MEPs who now cohabit with our enemy do so for the lifestyle and their obscene salaries paid for at the expense of our pensioners and public welfare services. It must not be overlooked that should they return to this country and campaign for our withdrawal from the EU they would lose their inflated EU pensions.

In this regard the UKIP is no different to all the other gravy train parties, the UKIP does not see itself as complicit in the treason that took us into the EU, which proves that it is no more concerned about our Constitution and its lawful constraints than all the other parties so engaged. The UKIP's duplicitous claim that it is in Europe to fight our corner in our enemy's camp is a nonsense for its very presence acknowledges the EUs authority over this country as legitimate which it most certainly is not.

The fight to free this nation from foreign rule is right here at home between the people and those who have usurped our Parliament and set themselves up as agents for our foreign enemy in Europe. When the EU elections come round the UKIP hierarchy use to effect their unsuspecting and delusioned faithful supporters to rally round and raise sufficient support to ensure they remain on the disgraceful Brussels gravy train, after which they settle down to delivering grandiose meaningless speeches in a foreign land while here at home it remains open season for our treasonous politicians.

Clearly and essentially a political party is desperately needed to represent the British people, to confront the crooks that now rule us and to regain our lawful freedoms and democratic self governance. When the UKIP was first formed it claimed its dedication to doing just that and quite a number of unsuspecting souls believed it. Seemingly the UKIP found it too hard a nut to crack, so on a 'if you can't beat them join them' principle the UKIP leaders grasped the opportunity afforded them by their position to make hay while the sun shone and by persuading their supporter that it was all in their best interest. It is now clear just whose interest it was in. Perhaps the cruellest aspect of the deceit was the fact that a great number of the UKIP's supporters were staunchly patriotic pensioners, who now suffer in penury under the tyranny of a Fascist style regime while the UKIP leaders enjoy the life of Reilly in foreign climes.

Bob Lomas.
