Mark Croucher and the Chartered Institute of Journalists: Questions that must be answered!

January 1st 2016 will be an important day in the history of the Chartered Institute of Journalists (CIOJ). With a royal charter to their credit, and assets currently in excesss of £2.5 million, their new president in January 2016 will be Mark Croucher from UKIP.

This seems to suggest that the CIOJ will be decidedely left-wing, because Anthony Scolefield (UKIP) placed in the public domain that Mark Croucher, UKIP’s Communications Director (2001-2007), vetted on behalf of Searchlight all those who sought membership of UKIP. Presumably, the membership of CIOJ will soon be subject to the same scrutiny? Is this the kind of control which the National Union of Journalists complained about during the Leveson Inquiry? This must be the most direct form of political control that any journalist could be subjected to in a free society.

Having accepted this prestigious post, can it be assumed that the £8,000. costs awarded against Mr Croucher by the Cardiff County Court on March 18thth. 2010, have been paid in full? Clerical matters such as these must be addressed when fame beckons.

it does seem all too likely that the liar cheat and general low life Mark Croucher’s presence in the Chartered Institute of Journalists is likely to befoul their reputation, just as it did Ukip’s, whose name and lack of ethics he dragged through the Courts failing to honour their commitments.
That the CIoJ have announced he is to be their president in 2016 speaks volumes of the ethics and competence of that organisation and shows them to be all grandiose title but lacking in integrity.
I was interested to note the above letter sent to me, indeed Ukip has failed to honour its very real debt to me of some £13,500 + interest since March 2010 to date of which Mark Croucher was ordered by the Court to pay £8,000 on which similar interest is due – neither have had the integrity to honour their debt.
