A GUEST POSTING:
So here it is. We have been picking up whispers about a paedophile scandal in the South West for some time now. David Gale's 'open letter to Nigel Farage' has finally brought matters into the open. The name of the individual referred to is known to us, as it is to Derbyshire CID. 'Grooming' is a criminal offence. So is complicity.
"One of the starkest examples of this lack of governance has been the tolerance of the party’s continued association with a convicted paedophile who, whilst no longer being a member, has continued to attend party functions and provide strategic UKIP documentation from his personal website. Party members with children, who have been asked for lifts to UKIP events by the paedophile, have been left unaware of the background of an individual who is on the sex offenders register for life. When warned about this individual, Chairman Steve Crowther has quite extraordinarily contrived means to remove the reporting individuals from the party. Through its lack of risk mitigating processes and actions, the party has knowingly exposed its members to undue risk.
My own efforts to raise the alarm have been ignored by the leadership, it being left to me to contact branches to alert them to the potential risks to members and to have photographs of the paedophile campaigning for UKIP removed from branch websites. More recently, I have gathered evidence that I understand has previously been in Steve Crowther’s possession that demonstrates the paedophile grooming a vulnerable young UKIP member on Twitter, in violation of his probationary licence, yet Crowther has encouraged the individual to maintain his party activism. If this is UKIP’s response, how many more paedophiles remain within the membership?"
David Gale is Chief Executive of Kids For Cash UK, an organisation that campaigns to expose paedophiles. Well done, David.
