UKIP: Jon Ison continues his destruction in the West Midlands

A West Midlands regional membership spread sheet, showing the variations in membership numbers by month shown to the Junius team reveal that it's Solihull and Meriden Branch chairman John Ison has set a new party record in losing his association a staggering 16 members since April 2012, that’s nearly a 30% decrease in just 4 months!

Ison has resided over the collapse of the (until recently) largest branch in the West Midlands! Before he took over the branch was thriving had 100+ members, BUT is now down to a pitiful 45 members. (So a near loss of 65 members over his entire chairmanship of just over 12 months!)

In the same period all branch activity as stopped, before ISON took over the branch it had 17 candidates in place for the 2010 local elections. This year he didn’t put up a single candidate!

Proof that more and more people are distancing themselves from this vindictive and largely untrustworthy individual !

Mr Ison now appears to ruling his sinking ship with an iron fist to hold some level of position within UKIP. Aware of his own local unpopularity Ison has refused on hold an AGM for the branch fearing that a vote of no confidence will be issued and passed against him!

Constitutionally this is not allowed though how much longer will UKIP let it continue???????? Will the West Midlands RO step in a either to dissolve the branch or demand an EGM to hold the yearly elections as per party rules ?

isn't Alan Parkin having the same result in his region and I gather that other than his own personal interests Peter Reeve & Lisa Duffy are having a near catastrophic effect in their region and with UKIP Yoof!

The party makes huge claims of leaps forward and expectations of glory yet imn reality they never seem to reflect in the ballot box.

There may well be more members than at their all time low, not so long ago, when estimates had them at 8>10,000 members based upon their turnout to vote and track record in internal elections.

That they have grown is hardly worthy of dispute as one need only look at the caliber of those who they put forward in leadership and the only means of defending themselves would seem not to be results or even sound argument but desperate efforts to denigrate and defame those supporters who dare to have a view contrary to their self interests on the gravy train.

Yes to be fair UKIP has gained a Town councillor in Lydney and describe his result to be based on 'a strong turnout' OK let us judge UKIP by their claims:

Alan Preest was elected.

Alan Preest would seem to have had to quit as a Tory County Councillor.

Alan Preest was seemingly forced to resign from The Tory Party.

Alan Preest is a common thief who has been unable to clear his name!

The actual 'strong turnout' was in fact only 22%

Thus, yes Alan Preest won but on a vote of indifference with only 16% of the electorate in his sector of this little town even bothering to vote!

Is linking their name with low lifes and liars, thieves and dissemblers, liars and cheats really the way forward for UKIP?

One need only consider those in positions of leadership and responsibility to know the party is of no consequence and going nowhere in its present state.

Mick McGough - Liar, Cheat, criminal (UKIP NEC)

Derek Clark Liar, Cheat, Thief, dishonourable and utterly dishonest (UKIP & EFD MEP)

Gerard Batten Dishonest, proven Liar, Racist, inciter of Racial Hatred, associate of The BNP, EDL, EFD & other extremist groups (UKIP & EFD MEP)

The list is long just look them up on the search tool on this blog or similarly at:
or at:

I am surprised ANYONE would want UKIP in its present form as their candidate, at a time when the majority of the population would support a party seeking to Leave-The-EU IKIP is still bumping along the bottom & of no relevance due to its behaviour.

I am a dedicated UKIP supporter but will ONLY vote for it when it is cleaned up and fit for purpose - which as Junius regularly shows, it is not!

one is inclined to wonder when John Ison will be arrested and bailed for what increasingly seems his actions to pervert the course of Justice - In his dishonest actions that were reported to the police by Nikki Sinclaire and witnessed by members of her staff I understand.

Many will be aware that John Ison claimed poverty yet would seem to have paid cah for 3 lotus Elans - whether for three girlfriends or as an investment I do not know.

I well remember the Elan when various girlfriends owned them back when they were newly launched but I only know of one man who has owned and driven them - he bought his about a year ago to do up for his daughter!

They are very much a young girl's car!

In that Nigel Farage has been questioned seemingly relative to his association with John Ison and when Nikki Sinclaire 'parted company' with John Ison it seems he walked straight into a UKIP job and was assisting Paul Nuttall!

Increasingly it looks as if John Ison was no more than a placeman in Nikki Sinclaire's office = placed by UKIP leadership to foment problems and even perhaps pervert the course of justice by stealing material from her office in return for preferment by UKIP leadership and its unpleasant claque.

I gather it is known and documented that John Ison was acting in concert with Nigel Farage's sewer rat and goffer bully boy Mark Croucher - who seemingly used material stolen by John Ison!

In that Justice delayed is Justice denied one wonders why John Ison has not been arrested, or has he?

Similarly to what extent was it a political action on the part of the police to arrest Nikki Sinclaire and permit the arrest to leak into the hands of the media in seemingly the middle of the night!

It does rather seem that the police are increasingly struggling to 'build' any sort of credible case against Nikki Sinclaire and lack a credible witness to front such a construct!

Might it be that they now find themselves with egg on their faces and will either need to 'construct' a case founded on little truth - for believe you me that can be done as we saw in the murder on film of Ian Tomlinson by the gratuitous and excessive cowardly attack from behind by an armed and armoured police officer.

When politically motivated Justice, The Police and Courts are strangers, acting in their own interests!

Might it be that Nikki Sinclaire has been singled out for her active campaigning against EU membership and other issuesclose to the EU's heart and for embarrassing the government - thereby upsetting the cosy relationship of incompetence held by UKIP at large?

Could it be that the inconsequentiality and irrelevance of UKIP's being used as usefull idiots to provide the semblance of democracy as provided by such subourned castratti was unsettled by Sinclaire's very real achievements and participation on behalf of her electorate?

I fear that a trumped up case may be made against Sinclaire to cover for the egg on the face of the police and the risks of opening the can of worms of which John Ison may be the lid in exposing UKIP's underhanmd behaviour and roll as puppets for The EU and the political elite!

The truth is the ONE thing unlikely to become apparent in this entire sorry scam!


PS - being aware that The Team Junius are infrquently posting due to awareness of UKIP's obvious irrelevance in future British domestic politics - I will also post this comment as a free standing posting on the John Ison blog at:
