Last December, Andrew Edwards - former UKIPPER - received an email from Stuart Wheeler. The email contained a request for a donation to UKIP. Mr Edwards replied by asking the following questions:
As Party Treasurer Mr Wheeler has a clear duty to find out what happened to £211k which disappeared from the SE Regional Accounts between 2004-5.
As MEP's are currently donating so little, shouldn't Mr Wheeler be dealing with those MEP's who selfishly refuse to help the Party financially before asking ordinary members for their cash?
Shouldn't Mr Wheeler be explaining to you all where Nigel Farage spent the £2m in expenses, which he boasted of receiving between 1999-2009.
Mr Wheeler should be demanding that Nigel Farage explain, to you, why he failed to keep his promise to pay the balance of his real expenses and claimed expenses to the party or into a fund for victims of the EU.
And finally, Mr Wheeler should be demanding that an audit of all EDF monies received by Ukip MEP's/officials should be undertaken before, you, are asked to help out.
Six months on and Mr Wheeler has still failed to have the decency to answer Mr Edward's rather awkward questions. So much for Mr Wheeler for being a new broom in UKIP!
