UKIP snippets: Farage continues to smear Nikki Sinclaire, UKIP picks a Welsh hooligan and Potty Ms Fuller gets upset!

Nikki Sinclaire - the smears continue

It is no surprise to learn that Stuart Parr of the Nigel Farage Sycophants 4 UKIP blog continues to smear Nikki Sinclaire on behalf of his boss and the odious Nuttall:

Naughty Nikki

When Nikki Sinclaire had the UKIP whip withdrawn, she was told to stop using the UKIP logo and stop describing herself as a UKIP MEP. As an independent MEP she is not, under any circumstances, allowed to use the UKIP membership list.

So imagine my surprise when I received a letter from the office of Nikki Sinclaire MEP, with a small picture of Nikki on the top standing next to a UKIP logo.

I'm still interested in what Nikki gets up to even though she's not a UKIP MEP any more but for someone planning to sue the party for allegedly not following correct disciplinary procedures, it seems strange that she would not only ignore the instructions given to her by the party but also break the law (Data Protection Act) by using UKIP membership details without permission and for a purpose other than that for which they were collected.

If she really does intend to get in a pissing contest with the party, I think breaking the law trumps not following internal disciplinary procedures correctly. People in glass houses and all that.

End of article.

We know that Mr Parr is not very bright but can we point out that standing next to a UKIP logo is not the same as 'using the logo'. And has he forgotten that she is still a UKIP member?

Let us be quite clear on this matter:

UKIP’s NEC did not follow correct disciplinary procedures.

Both Pearson and Farage lied about the reasons for her dismissal.

Pearson claimed that she had fallen out with the voluntary party. That claim has been disproved.

The West Midlands committee passed a vote of confidence in her. This proves that the party did NOT carry out an investigation into the veracity of Pearson’s claim before using it as a basis for her dismissal.

Members of UKIP’s NEC were clearly biased. For instance, Farage attacked Nikki twice on national television!

Membership of the EFD breaches UKIP's own constitution by supporting racist parties in the EU.

The party is running a smear campaign against her on Bloggers 4 UKIP. A new employee of Farage was also caught out attacking Nikki on the British Democracy Forum.

And it will be very difficult for them to claim that she used personal data illegally as their action to remove the whip was itself clearly illegal.

UKIP PPC and ex-football hooligan

We knew that UKIP was having trouble finding people to stand for them in Wales.

They are now so desperate for candidates that they have even resorted to fielding ex-football hooligans!

We dread to imagine what he thinks about UKIP’s Law and Order policies!

From Wales Online:

Reformed football hooligan to stand for Ukip

A REFORMED football hooligan, who last year got into trouble for posting a sexual innuendo about a woman on trial for murder on an internet message board, has been selected as a Parliamentary candidate by the United Kingdom Independence Party.

Adam Brown, 31, who will be Ukip’s general election candidate in Merthyr Tydfil and Rhymney, has already created further controversy by encouraging people to win money by placing a bet on his victory and then voting for him.

Mr Brown, who was elected to Merthyr Council as an Independent in 2008, joined the anti-EU party last year.

Last September he admitted that in 2000 he was banned from every football ground in the UK for three years after being convicted of disorderly conduct after a match between Queen’s Park Rangers and Cardiff City.

At the time he said: “I was young, naive and showing off. I suffered the consequences of my actions, and since then I’ve tried to pay back the community.”

Then last year he was the subject of an internal party investigation after launching a suggestive internet poll on the question: “Amanda Knox? Would yoo...?”

Amanda Knox was at the time on trial for murdering fellow student Meredith Kercher in the house they shared in Perugia, Italy in 2007. She has since been convicted of the crime and jailed for 26 years.

It was established at the time that Mr Brown had used three different aliases to post a variety of controversial messages, including one that advised private landlords not to rent property to people on housing benefit.

Having first denied he had made the postings, Mr Brown later admitted he had done so.

John Bufton, the Ukip MEP for Wales, told the Western Mail that Mr Brown had been reprimanded by the party’s Welsh committee for his “Amanda Knox” posting on the message board of the fans’ website cardiffcity.com.

Nevertheless, Ukip thought it was appropriate to nominate Mr Brown to stand in the general election.

“He was firmly told that his behaviour last year was unacceptable, but people felt he should be allowed to stand for Parliament because he has done a lot of good work in the local community.”

In the latest internet episode involving Mr Brown, someone using the alias Mr Ninian advised readers of the cardiffcity.com message board to place bets on Ukip winning Merthyr at the general election. The posting – made days before Mr Brown’s candidacy was publicly announced – said: “Ukip are 80/1 with Paddy Power to win the Merthyr seat in the next general election.”
After a number of postings from other readers of the message board ridiculing the idea that Ukip could win Merthyr – it is regarded unanimously by political commentators as a safe Labour seat – Mr Ninian insisted that Ukip had a chance, stating: “Well the Government should ban this kind of betting if they are so worried about it. Until they do then this is an opportunity for people.”

When we asked Mr Brown whether he himself was Mr Ninian, he replied: “I learnt my lesson last year and don’t post on internet sites any more. Mr Ninian is a sort of employee and friend.

“He’s entitled to his view about betting, but I think all political betting should be banned because it shouldn’t be allowed to influence the way people vote.”

Despite Mr Brown’s assertion that he would like to see political betting banned, the Western Mail has found evidence that he was arguing differently as recently as March, when he posted a message on a Facebook site under his own name stating: “I’ve texted you on how to make some money this morning.”

The Cardiff City fan whose Facebook site Mr Brown was posting to responded: “I read it, thanks councillor. I’ll take my chances with the Champions and Europa leagues instead.”

Annabelle Fuller is upset

We understand that Annabelle Fuller - Farage’s long term mistress - got rather upset after reading the following comment by 'Black Dog' in the Sunday Times:

Naughty: Nigel Farage

Former UKIP leader Nigel Farage, who is trying to oust Speaker John Bercow in Buckingham, recalls a drunken night with a Latvian beauty called Liga in his memoirs.

‘I met her in a pub and accepted her invitation home for a drink. She was sleek and seductive and I will not splutter that after the first bottle I would necessarily have behaved like Sir Galahad.’

Farage is lucky his second wife, Kirsten, is so understanding.

End of quote. To see the original: LINK

We can only assume that Potty Annabelle was disgruntled that Farage had chosen to cheat on his wife with someone other than Ms Fuller. Ms Fuller always likes to get first refusal when it comes to Nigel.

We always knew that Ms Fuller was the jealous type!

And wasn't it a damn shame that Ms Fuller lost her job with the British Legion? It appears that someone made them aware of certain unsavory facts.

UKIP: Nigel Farage makes an ass of himself on BBC's HARDTalk

To see the full interview: HARDTalk

It started off so well. Farage looked calm and composed. But then it all started to go badly wrong!

Stephen Sackur tackled Farage over UKIP’s nonsensical tax policies. He pointed out that UKIP wants to cut taxes AND yet at the same time increase spending on defence, pensions, border police and prisons.

The interviewer also quoted the Director of Tax Research in the UK as saying:

‘UKIP’s figures don’t add up’.

Sackur mentioned that UKIP would slash 30-40% of all government budgets.

To do this would result in at least 1.5 million people being made unemployed. The effect on the economy would be disastrous.

And what is UKIP’s answer to this? You tell us. There is no mention in the manifesto of how they would deal with such a massive increase in unemployment.

The interviewer repeatedly asked Farage where he was going to get the money to finance UKIP’s huge public spending commitments. Farage stumbled for an answer and frankly came across as a man without a clue.

Farage was also tackled about his expenses and failure to provide a full audit of his accounts. Farage claimed that his expenses were available on his website. The interviewer pointed out that he had looked on the site and had failed to find them. Again, Farage stumbled for an answer and was exposed as a liar.

The expulsion of John West was mentioned. Mr Sackur read a quote from Mr West in which the former UKIPPER described Farage as ‘conning the party’. Farage became increasingly agitated and tried to change the subject.

Farage’s Von Rompuy outburst in the EU Parliament was also raised. Sackur described it as a ‘childish insult’. Farage desperately tried to defend his actions by claiming that the behaviour of certain MPs in House of Commons or the Australian Parliament was far worse. So that makes it ok?

Farage had well and truly lost it by this point.

UKIP’s relationship with The Northern League was then raised. Sackur pointed out that the NL was a racist and homophobic party. Farage denied it!

So what about this?

Lega Nord

Giancarlo Gentilini, Lega Nord's deputy mayor of Treviso called in 2007 for the "ethnic cleansing" of homosexuals." I will immediately give orders to my forces so that they can carry out an ethnic cleansing of faggots," he told a local television station. "The faggots must go to other cities where they are welcome. Here in Treviso there is no chance for faggots or the like."

In the same year he taunted Pecoraro Scanio, Italy's Minister of the Environment and an open bisexual, by saying: "In Gorgo, a woman was raped with a chisel in the back and in the front. I say to Pecoraro Scanio that I want the same thing to happen to his mother and his sister."

Pro-Federalist Lega Nord – the party's constitution says that the party will end its political activity when federalism is obtained - are no strangers to racially motivated violence: indeed, MEP Mario Borghezio was fined in 1993 for beating a 12 year old Moroccan child. In 2005, whilst sitting as an MEP, he was found guilty of setting fire to the belongings of immigrants under a railway bridge in Turin, during a vigilante raid. In September 2007 he was arrested by Belgian police for his part in an anti-Islamic demonstration.

The former leader of Lega Nord, Umberto Bossi, an MEP in the last parliament, was convicted of incitement to violence in 1998. He received a one-year suspended prison sentence. He had previously received a conviction for taking a 200 million bribe. In 2003 he described Africans as "Bingo-Bongos", and suggested that the Italian navy should open fire on boats carrying refugees.

Notorious holocaust denier Father Floriano Abrahamowicz is considered to be the "unofficial Chaplain" of Lega Nord. He told an Italian newspaper: "I know the gas chambers existed... but I don't know if anyone was killed in them. I know that, in addition to the official version, there is another version..." He has also been a vocal supporter of Erich Priebke, the German SS officer convicted of war crimes for a 1944 massacre in Rome, extradited to Italy from Argentina and currently living under house arrest.

The Lega has its own militant faction, the so-called Green shirts.

The Junius Team must congratulate Mr Sackur for his excellent interview. Farage was made to look a fool. Long may it continue!

UKIP: Greg Lance-Watkins and John West slam Nigel Farage in The Economist

Farage getting a cool reception in Bucks says the Economist.

It is interesting to note that Farage is not getting the welcome that he had expected on the streets of Bucks.

And it seems that Nigel's old friends - Mr Greg Lance-Watkins and Mr John West were less than impressed after reading that Farage had described himself as 'Mr Clean'.

From The Economist:

THE shoppers in Buckingham’s modest street market look bemused as a prospective parliamentary candidate, John Stevens, tells them: “You can bring down the speaker of the House of Commons!” Some tell him they will vote for the incumbent, John Bercow, although he did not come out of the parliamentary-expenses scandal with much credit. Most are happy to take the leaflets Mr Stevens proffers. Respect for politicians is not much in evidence in this prosperous market town. “They’re all crooks, but Mr Bercow’s a local man,” says Phillip Dillow. Yet his son, Edward, chips in: “I won’t vote for nobody who steals. If I did that on benefits I’d be in jail by now.”

Mr Bercow, a Conservative, was first elected for the constituency in 1997. He became speaker of the House of Commons last year, when the previous incumbent, Michael Martin, was forced out in the row over parliamentary expenses. In theory his job should be safe: in 2005 he held his seat with 57% of the vote. And neither Labour nor the Liberal Democrats is putting up a candidate. The speaker is, by tradition, elected unopposed.

Instead Mr Bercow faces a fierce, personal and as yet unpredictable fight. Three independent candidates are standing, as are an activist in the British National Party and Nigel Farage, who in the autumn stood down as leader of the United Kingdom Independence Party (UKIP) to concentrate on the tussle in Buckingham.
(Junius says: NOT true. Farage stood down after Stuart Wheeler made it quite clear that he would not fund UKIP if Farage remained as leader) Perhaps predictably in this comfortable and overwhelmingly white constituency, all are on the right of the political spectrum.

One reason for the plethora of challengers is that Mr Bercow lacks support within his own party. Only a handful of Conservative MPs voted for him as speaker: one constituent says he was chosen by Labour as a “practical joke”. The feeling that he is a Labour sympathiser has been strengthened by the fact that his wife is standing as a Labour candidate in the local elections in London. The Conservatives’ leader, David Cameron, has threatened to deselect any local activist who openly supports anyone but Mr Bercow. Even so, some well-placed Tory officials and party members are effusive, even if only in private, about Patrick Phillips, a former high sheriff of the county and rival candidate.

Mr Bercow’s role in the expenses scandal has also hurt him. He “flipped” his second-home designation, avoiding capital-gains tax (which he later paid) and had to repay around £1,000 of expenses after a parliamentary investigation. Campaign literature for Mr Stevens, a former Tory MEP who says he was encouraged to stand by George Walden, Mr Bercow’s predecessor in the seat, makes much of the speaker’s complicated expenses. Its other theme is the third cause for unrest in Buckingham: the traditional disenfranchisement of voters in the speaker’s constituency.

Mr Bercow also faces a serious challenge from UKIP’s Mr Farage. A vote for him, Mr Farage says, is a vote for a clean man untainted by Westminster politics:

“There are no big parties to vote for and the speaker who is seeking re-election is the symbol of the current political class.”

But Mr Farage has faced expenses scandals inside his own party, and a recent outburst in the European Parliament has cooled the reception he gets on many of the politer doorsteps in Buckingham.

According to Mr Phillips, Mr Farage recently invited himself round to tea to ask him to stand down, rather than let Mr Bercow win against a split vote. Mr Phillips refused, saying that however angry his Conservative friends might be with Mr Bercow, they “did not want UKIP to establish a beach-head in Buckingham”. He sees the anti-Bercow vote being sliced up between a number of candidates, one of whom could oust the speaker, albeit on a minority of the vote.

Vernon Bogdanor, a professor of government at Oxford University, reckons that Mr Bercow is vulnerable. “The authority of the political class was undermined by the expenses scandal, and the authority of the role of speaker shattered,” he says. He thinks it unfair that voters in the speaker’s constituency are disenfranchised, and proposes that the speaker, once elected, be shunted to a “notional constituency”, triggering a by-election in his original one.

Mr Bercow’s friends, meanwhile, dismiss the disenfranchisement argument, saying that many constituents like the kudos of having the speaker as their MP. They point to their man’s record as speaker in cleaning up Parliament, and comfort themselves that the “anti-Bercow vote is badly split”. If they are wrong, and Buckingham’s constituents oust an incumbent speaker for the first time, it will send a pretty clear message to Westminster that business as usual is over.

End of article.

And now for the comments as published in the online version:

Greg_L-W wrote: A vote for him, Mr Farage says, is a vote for a clean man untainted by Westminster politics.

But Mr Farage has faced expenses scandals inside his own party.

Farage is indeed untainted by Westminster politics! To let such a man loose with Westminster's expenses system after his EU training would be like putting a wolf in a pen full of lambs!

Farage's dissembling goes far beyond Political acceptability!

Farage has NEVER published his accounts just some obfuscating outlines.

Farage has NEVER accounted for the £2M he boasted of making.

Farage has NEVER published what happened to over 85% of the income of Ashford which he claimed was THE MOST profitable thing EUkip have ever done.

There is every reason to believe that Farage has been as dishonest about money as he was with 3 stories so far about Liga! £1/4M in Isle of Man deposited in ONE cheque +? Farage took no meaningful action against Tom Wise.

There is not a Westminster politician who does not look squeaky clean in comparison.

As for his Racist, anti Jewish and pro EU membership links just look at the facts!

John West wrote:
Farage a clean man? Don't make me laugh!

He surrounds himself with sycophants who only tell him what he wants to hear.

He refuses to reveal publish his own full EU expenses or allowances, whilst condemning MP's for their greed.

He refuses to answer concerns about financial misappropriation and widespread corruption within his own Party.

He employs his wife despite promising not to do so when first elected as an MEP.

He boldly condemns the BNP but surrounds himself with extremists in UKIP's EFD Group.

He refuses to publish the full accounts for UKIP’s former Ashford call centre.

And nor will he answer concerns over the hundreds of thousands of pounds taken from UKIP's South East regional account, laughingly described by him as 'other expenses'.

And yet Farage still has the nerve to condemn Bercow for being corrupt!

Farage does everything within his power to ensure that his own profits from being an MEP remain hidden. And this is despite his having promised to do the exact opposite when first elected as an MEP.

In May 2009, 'The Guardian' reported that Farage had said in a speech to the Foreign Press Association that as an MEP he had received and spent nearly £2 million of taxpayers' money in expenses and allowances - and that is on top of his £64,000 a year salary.

And he refused to say where the money went!

John West wrote: And I forgot to mention I used to be in UKIP. These concerns were raised by me and yet were ignored by Farage and UKIP's NEC.

The recent expulsion of Nikki Sinclaire MEP is also another reason not to support UKIP. She was thrown out by Farage because she was not prepared to sit with fascists in UKIP's EFD group.

UKIP is corrupt and is certainly not worth a single vote under their current leaders.

Richard E. wrote: "Mr Bercow also faces a serious challenge from UKIP’s Mr Farage. A vote for him, Mr Farage says, is a vote for a clean man untainted by Westminster politics:"

By whatever standard you care to use, this must be one of the most monumentally duplicitous statements ever!

For to describe Nigel Farage as "a clean man" is akin to saying Hitler was a pacifist! LFor let there be no doubt about it, Nigel Farage has more financial skeletons in his cupboard than almost any MP at Westminster; and despite being asked to do so by a string of UKIP Treasurers, and other senior officials, he refuses to explain his financial chicanery - to anyone.

And on a personal level the man is a debauched drunkard, womaniser and serial adulterer.

Attributes that are hardly attributable to a 'Mr Clean'

asbr01 wrote: Parts of this story illustrate well some of the faults in the UK's democracy.

The main parties refuse to offer candidates, even though there will be people who would like to vote for these parties. These people are disenfranchised.

Some of the candidates get together in private to discuss whether some should stand down to avoid splitting the opposition to the Speaker. That decreases the choice available to the electors.

The Speaker puts forward no policy except that he wants to go on being the Speaker. That is not a serious electoral platform at all. No one should vote for a person who does not put forward policies that address the nation's problems.

All this is justified by specious arguments that pay no attention at all to what should be the purpose of an election in a democracy, namely to allow the electors a fair say in who is governing them. The expenses scandal, bad though it is, is not the worst part of UK democracy. The lack of a fair electoral system is. We need a wholescale reform to make sure that the electoral system produces a parliament which reflects the votes of all the people.

UKIP: Stuart Wheeler abandons UKIP to form new party

On March 3rd we mentioned that Stuart Wheeler was becoming increasingly unhappy with Farage and UKIP. See: LINK

He has now abandoned Farage and UKIP to form his own party. See: Trust Party & LINK

The total lack of financial transparency within UKIP was of great concern to him. He was not prepared to continue funding a party that was unable and unwilling to provide even a basic audit of accounts.

Over the last decade millions of pounds have literally 'vanished' from UKIP's accounts.

And the only man who can tell us where the money went is not telling!

1. Farage Allowances - unpublished.

2. UKIP MEP Allowances - unpublished.

3. Farage Expenses - unpublished.

4. Farage's SE Regional Accounts - £211,000 unaccounted 'other costs' - unpublished.

5. Ashford - £1m expenses - unpublished.

6. Signs up for a second secret EU pension.

7. Employed his wife despite pledging not to do so.

And what about 'Farage Ltd' and Nigel's off-shore 'Trust fund' in the Isle of Man? Where did he get the money to fund those? See: LINK & LINK

We also understand that Nikki Sinclaire's disgraceful treatment at the hands of Farage, Nuttall and the NEC also influenced Wheeler's decision to abandon UKIP.

All UKIPPERS should remember that it was Farage's dishonesty and arrogance that led to Wheeler's alienation.

And forget the spin from Farage's sycophants. To lose your only major donor just five weeks before the General Election is nothing short of a disaster.

And what must UKIP's MEPs be thinking? Farage knew that Wheeler was going to pull the plug on funding. But did he tell them? The answer is NO. They only found out at the weekend!

Stuart is standing for the Trust Party in Bexhill and Battle. What will the official UKIP candidate in Bexhill have say to that?

UKIP: Nigel Farage prays for salvation as he loses another EFD MEP. He also loses a major backer!

Last week we promised you a major story. Here it is!

Nigel Farage's EFD (the European Fascists and Dogmatics) group in the European Parliament is struggling.

Having lost one of his own party (with others set to follow) Farage is not looking so good in the eyes of his euro-colleagues.

He has just lost another MEP. No wonder Nigel has started to pray for salvation!

And as for the backer .... wait and see. Monday is the big day for the official statement!

Now back to the MEP.

The chap in question is a true gentleman, and has agreed to help Farage by not announcing his departure until after the British General Election, but Junius can report that French MEP Phillipe de Villiers has now joined forces with Sarkozy, and will leave the EFD to join the ECR. Oh dear, Nigel, have we just given away one of your most sensitive secrets?

The most interesting aspect of this is the fact that Farage has kept this information away from his spineless disciples, the other UKIP MEPs, as they are not deemed important enough to bring into consideration. Farage also knows that they are so gutless, that even if they are deceived, they lack what it takes to stand up to him. He chose his "useful idiots" well.

And so his plan to bring the Dutch Freedom Party into the EFD becomes even more important.

But there is a bit of a problem here.

When Geert Wilders went to Strasbourg to show his film about Islamic extremism to MEPs, he was shunned by Farage, (who behaved very rudely towards him, even refusing to sit at the same table at lunch). The showing of the film was banned by the European Parliament's Bureau. Minutes of the bureau meeting reveal something rather interesting - the motion to ban the film was tabled by none other than Hans Blokland, a Dutch member of UKIP's Ind Dem group.

Bureau meetings are highly secretive, and so the Dutch Freedom Party never knew who was behind this move. They know all about it now, Nigel!

Farage is keeping another secret from his MEPs.... hmmmm, we may wait a few days before explaining that one!

UKIP: Nigel Farage & his remaindered novel

We are amused to note a bitter humiliation for Nigel Farage in his bid for literary fame!

His book "Fighting Bull" (or should that be "More Bull?") was released this week. Generally, after some months, such autobiogs tend to be remaindered, and knocked out cheaply in order to shift left over stock. Sometimes, non-sellers are reduced more quickly to try to stimulate sales.

Rather hilariously, we see that after just 4 days on sale, Amazon has already reduced Farage's book from £17.99 to £11.89!

More Bull.

This must be a record, but probably not one that any author would wish for.

UKIP: Mark Croucher/UKIP and the Court Judgement against them

We have already published some of the facts behind the Croucher/Nuttall/UKIP attempt to bankrupt Greg Lance-Watkins and thus silence his blog. See: LINK & LINK

That Croucher or Nuttall were too cowardly to attend the court is an established fact.

That this was a UKIP action is also an established fact. The odious Paul 'Benito' Nuttall had provided evidence to support Croucher's copyright ownership of the photos in question. This was done in his capacity as UKIP Chairman.

That the Junius Team is still celebrating Croucher's humiliating defeat is also an established fact.

The Mark 'Friar Tuck' Croucher is putting on weight and has lost even more hair due to stress is also an established fact. But where is UKIP's leadership when you need them for support? The poor little lad!

His copyright case against the BNP is also pending. At this rate Croucher will be bankrupt within weeks.

We are now pleased to publish the judgement against Croucher/ UKIP in full:

Note of Judgment

His Honour Judge W Gaskell stated that this was an application by the defendant to strike out the claim. He stated that today was the trial date and that the claimant was not in attendance.

The first question which the Judge had to address was whether he could be confident that the claimant was aware of the hearing date.

He stated that the matter had previously been listed for trial on 27th January 2010. This had been vacated and directions were given, including a new trial window. Notice was given on 15th February 2010 stating that the trial had been listed on 18th March 2010.

The Judge had also heard that the defendant’s solicitor had spoken to the claimant the previous Friday and mention was made of today's hearing date during the call. The Judge stated that an email had also been sent to the claimant setting out the various matters which needed to be resolved prior to the trial.

That email was in the bundle at page 139 and carried the date 15th March 2010.

The Judge had also heard evidence that the claimant was currently active on the internet and clearly there was an overwhelming likelihood that he had access to his emails.

The Judge then set out the background to the claim. He stated that the claimant alleged that monies were due to him in respect of the use of 3 photographs used by the defendant on his internet blog.

The 3 photos were of head and shoulders of UKIP members (IJ later corrected the fact that one of the photos was a full body photograph of Nigel Ferrage).

The first issue was whether the claimant was the owner of the copyright and the photographs. The Judge noted that Mr Croucher would have to overcome the fact that it seemed that the photographs had been taken by him in his capacity as an employee or at least as an agent employed by UKIP.

The Judge then turned to the issue of quantum. If the claimant managed to overcome the issue of appropriate ownership the issue of quantum arises. The Judge noted that the claimant claims £8,000. On the material provided to the Judge, and he noted that he had not heard evidence from the claimant, he stated that it appeared to be grossly excessive.

The Judge referred to the freelance fee guides and specifically to the online prices. The Judge noted that newspapers charge £625 for one year's use and that business use was £850 for one year.

However, he noted that the use in question was by a not for profit website and stated that he was entitled on the basis of the material before him to conclude that it was highly unlikely that the claimant would achieve anything near that which he claimed. However, the Judge noted that those issues could be put to one side for the moment.

The Judge stated that the fact was that the . claimant had failed to file a pre trial checklist and the filing fee. He had also failed to pay the hearing fee. In accordance with the previous order made on 24th February 2010, the claim should be struck out due to this.

The claimant had now failed to attend Court also.

The Judge stated that he was wholly satisfied that the claimant was aware of proceedings and had failed to take necessary steps in proceedings. He had also failed to attend Court. Had he attended Court and paid the money the Court would have heard the claimant's claim.

The Judge stated that taking in to consideration the claimant's breach of procedural requirements and his failure to attend Court and the difficulties he faced in relation to proving liability and quantum, it seemed appropriate to strike out the claim. The Judge therefore struck out the claim.

Having heard submissions by the defendant’s counsel on costs, the Judge ordered the claimant to pay the defendant's costs assessed at £8,448.50 within 28 days.

UKIP: More UKIPPERS resign

Andrew Moffat joins the BNP

It is interesting to note that UKIP’s leadership were fully aware that Mr Moffat was a former member of the National Front. Despite this, he was welcomed with open arms and was even allowed to stand as a UKIP parliamentary candidate in Beaconsfield.

Various UKIPPERS are now lining up to denounce him as a racist . So what had prevented them from speaking out before? The words ‘stinking’ and ‘hypocrisy’ quickly spring to mind.

It is amusing to note that various BNP members have suggested that Mr Moffatt left UKIP because he was unhappy being associated with Farage’s far-right allies in the EFD! See: LINK

And what happened to Mark Croucher’s vetting via Searchlight? Was the plump one too busy losing copyright actions in court when Moffat first applied to join UKIP?

Here is a report taken from the Chichester Observer:

VOTE: BNP candidate: Let me deliver for good of town

Is this the most controversial person to seek election as the MP for Bognor Regis?

Andrew Moffat is the town's first British National Party's general election candidate.

The far right party attracts protests for its policies. Its recent Question Time session in Aldwick with prospective parliamentary candidates attracted the first political demonstration in the area for decades.

Outspoken Mr Moffat, 50, said he was prepared for strong challenges from his opponents in the forthcoming campaign in the Bognor Regis and Littlehampton constituency.

But he said he was willing to take on their policies with some blunt talking. "I am giving people the choice they don't have with the other parties," he said. "I am campaigning to halt immigration, deport illegal immigrants and bogus asylum seekers, withdraw from Afghanistan, leave the EU, crack down on crime and restore Christian observance in schools.

"Multiculturalism is being deliberately imposed by Labour and the Liberals and Conservatives to balkanise Britain and erode our cultural heritage, thus facilitating undemocratic EU rule.

"The window is closing. Within 40 years, we shall become a minority in our own ancestral homeland. This is the end game – England is being extinguished."

He wants a referendum about the reinstatement of the death penalty for serious offenders such as terrorists and child killers whose identity has been proved by DNA.

Mr Moffat, who lives near Pulborough, attacked existing Conservative MP Nick Gibb's record on expenses. He listed some of Mr Gibb's tens of thousands of pounds of expenses for his second home for work such as redecoration and repairs and gardening.

"The old political class is loathed," said Mr Moffat. "Bognor Regis and Littlehampton's disgraceful Tory MP has been embroiled in the expenses scandal.MPs are grossly overpaid for failing their country. If elected, I shall donate 50 per cent of my Parliamentary salary to local good causes and challenge the other candidates to do likewise."

Mr Moffat is a veteran of two general election campaigns for UKIP. He first stood in Beaconsfield and then Arundel and South Downs in 2005.

He left because he disagreed with the party's views.

An international foodstuffs trader, he has spent most of his working career in overseas trade and commerce. He is a keen shot and sportsman and plays rugby.

In October UKIP’s leadership was crowing after a Tory councillor joined the Party:

Another District councillor Defects to UKIP !

David Hamilton, treasurer of the North Nottinghamshire branch of UKIP, said he was delighted.

Excellent, yet another Tory who can see sense in leaving the EU.

Sadly, his love affair with UKIP East Midlands did not last long. But we can well understand his desire to distance himself from the likes of Derek Clark and Don Ransome.

After all, would you want to be associated with a man under investigation by OLAF? Would you want to have as your Regional Organiser a man who has been convicted of drink driving? Thought not! See: LINK & LINK

From the Mansfield Chad News:

Councillor leaves UKIP just months after joining

Nick Bennett has announced he is leaving UKIP

MANSFIELD district councillor Nick Bennett has decided to leave the UK Independence Party just months after joining, Chad can reveal.

The former Conservative councillor announced last October he was joining UKIP, along with the chairman of Mansfield Conservative Association at the time, Philip Smith.

A statement from UKIP Parliamentary candidate for Mansfield, David Hamilton, says: "It is always sad to lose a member of the party, particularly for personal reasons, and we understand that he now wants to take a back seat."

UKIP: Nigel Farage & How to Avoid Tax with an Isle of Man Bank Account

We do wish that Nigel would stop procrastinating and finally come clean about the following:

His MEP expenses, the missing Ashford money, the £200K that 'vanished' from UKIP's South East accounts and the exact purpose of 'Farage Ltd.'

And what about your off-shore 'Trust fund' in the Isle of Man? What is that for? Tax avoidance scams? Surely not money laundering?

Perhaps we should ask Dick Horsnell or Don Ransome? We seem to recall that Dick once stood as a UKIP PPC in Boston. Don was his election agent.

Dick now lives on the Isle of Man. What a coincidence! Nigel went over there the other year. He said that he was on a 'speaking engagement'. It was rather strange that no record could be found of where Farage spoke.

The Isle of Man is used by individuals and companies across the world as a financial centre. With its policy of low taxation, and its banks renowned for customer privacy, the Isle of Man has long been used as a tax haven by individuals and businesses. While it is increasingly difficult to avoid taxes through offshore banking, it is still possible on the Isle of Man.


Nigel, your campaign in Buckingham will certainly suffer if you don't come clean. Questions are already being asked about your integrity. We can assure you of that!

Take our advice and get this burden off of your shoulders. Confession is really good for the soul!

One of Nigel's opponents in Bucks has already been raising a few interesting questions:

Why UKIP is no alternative

Hardly a day goes by without the MP for the Buckingham constituency, John Bercow, facing fresh revelations about his expenses claims.

But in case anyone thinks UKIP offers a real alternative, they don’t!

UKIP MEP Nigel Farage has been accused of claiming a staggering TWO MILLION POUNDS in expenses from the European Parliament on top of his annual £64,000 salary.

Mr Farage admitted to the Foreign Press Association that “It is a vast sum” and added that he had used the “very large sum of taxpayers’ money” to help promote his party’s message… at taxpayers’ expense.

When challenged by The Observer newspaper to justify how he could claim so much while running a campaign attacking Westminster MPs for their own extravagance, Mr Farage was unapologetic, saying that he was “entirely happy” that the taxpayers’ money “had been used for the best of causes“.

Mr Farage, who employs his wife to help run his office and pays her from his allowances, has since been accused of hypocrisy.

Former Europe Minister Denis MacShane has said, “Nigel Farage’s astounding £2m raid on the taxpayer shows he is up there with any other politician, happy to line his pockets with gold“.

Meanwhile two former UKIP MEPs have been jailed for false accounting, money-laundering of EU expenses, and benefit fraud while another UKIP MEP has quit the eurosceptic group in the European Parliament stating, in her resignation letter, that, “My working relationship and trust with EPD co-president Nigel Farage has broken down“.

To view the original: LINK

Nigel, we did warn you! It was a foregone conclusion that another candidate would expose your sickening hypocrisy after you said that you were standing as an anti-sleaze candidate.

For Farage to stand as anti-sleaze is about as convincing as Stalin posing as a champion of democracy!

UKIP: Lord Pearson betrays the membership and the Nation

"What about the [UKIP] 'wasted vote'? The answer to that is that if you want more of the same, more of the Lib/Lab/Con, if you want to make absolutely sure that nothing changes, then you must vote for one of them. If, on the other hand, you want to start the forces of change, then the only sensible thing to do is to vote UKIP."

"So whatever the doubts about a hung Parliament, a Conservative victory would be an absolutely certain disaster, just as bad as Labour. It would be the final extinction of what millions of our forebears have died for over hundreds of years.

"We must not let it happen."

Lord Pearson, UKIP Spring Conference 2010.

And yet this is the same Lord Pearson who is now asking UKIP candidates to 'stand aside' for ‘hardline Eurosceptic’ Labour and Tory PPCs - and for UKIP voters in those constituencies to support one of those parties that he has rightly condemned as "more of the same". See: LINK

Lord Pearson is certainly a very confused man.

A large number of members are now in revolt over this issue. And who can blame them?

Has it escaped Pearson’s attention that both the Tories and Labour are PRO-EU? What is the point of standing aside for ANY Lab/Con PPC if they are prepared to support a party that is committed to EU membership?

Several UKIP candidates have already indicated that they have absolutely no intention of standing aside for any so-called Tory or Labour Eurosceptic.

One UKIP PPC has told us:

“They wouldn’t be in the Tories if they are really Euro-sceptic. They would be with us”.

Pearson’s ‘request’ also indicates that Nigel’s plan to oblige Cameron to hold a referendum on the Lisbon Treaty, in return for UKIP candidates stepping down, has been abandoned.

Pearson is still a Tory at heart. And any leader of an anti-EU party that asks his own candidates to stand aside so that voters can elect a pro-EU party has clearly no principles whatsoever.

And what of those other staunch Eurosceptic candidates who are not Tory or Labour candidates? Will UKIP be standing aside for Niall Warry, Paul Wesson or Nick Griffin?

To stand aside in an electoral contest for a party that would never in a million years contemplate giving similar treatment to UKIP is an act of sheer folly.

Cameron refused to give us a referendum on Lisbon. Tory candidates can proclaim their anti-EU views from now until the General Election and beyond. But the simple fact is that the Tory party has made its position on the EU quite clear - it is PRO-EU!

Will Cameron and his candidates be swayed by Pearson's stupid policy? No.

And will a Eurosceptic Labour PPC refuse to stand in a seat that UKIP is contesting because of Pearson’s action? No.

Pearson has made both himself and UKIP look extremely foolish. It has also confirmed what many of us have known for years - UKIP is a Tory pressure group.

Which brings to this amusing poem by ‘Remington Steele. Taken from the British Democracy Forum:

Yours is not to do or die,
But only to be united by the old school tie,
Lord Pearson takes over in all his glory,
To help his old school allies, who happen to be Tory!
So when it comes down to making my selection,
UKIP will not have my vote in this General Election,
Whilst Tory, Labour and Liberal are quite lame,
That horrid old Pearson promises us more of the same!

End of poem.


Watch this space!

UKIP: Nikki Sinclaire takes UKIP to court, the Saga of Nigel's testicle, Stuart Gulleford gets upset and a message for Jo

Nikki Sinclaire to take UKIP to court over expulsion

We were pleased to hear that Nikki Sinclaire will be taking UKIP to court over her expulsion.

She has excellent grounds for doing so.

1. She was never given a chance to defend herself and no lawful disciplinary hearing was held.

2. Membership of the EFD is at odds with UKIP’s own constitution. For instance, the Lega Nord actively campaigned for the Lisbon Treaty. Another member - Paska - is also on record as making pro-EU statements. See: LINK & LINK

3. Lord Pearson has been exposed as a liar after falsely claiming that the West Midlands Committee could not work with her. They later passed a motion of confidence in her favour! See: LINK

We were amused to learn that UKIP’s bungling legal expert - Michael Zuckerman - will be handling UKIP’s defence.

This is the same Michael Zuckerman who advised Jonathan Arnott and Peter Reeve that they could not have legal representation in a Small Claims Court. The result? A win for John West and a defeat for UKIP. See: LINK

This is the same Michael Zuckerman who advised Farage to fight ELCOM over the illegal Bown Donations. The result? A win for ELCOM and a defeat for UKIP. And a legal bill of £750,000!

Here is what David Abbott - a member of UKIP's NEC - had to say about Zuckerman and the ELCOM case:

“At the time of the original hearing the NEC had members who recommended paying the 18,000, admitting the party's 'error' and getting on with campaigning. The secretary (who is a famous West End lawyer, according to Mr Farage), and Mr Farage himself were ardently against this sensible approach.”


And this is the same Michael Zuckerman who quoted UKIP £10,000 to form a Limited Company. It can actually be done online in 10 minutes for under £200!

It is beyond belief that just a few short weeks before a General Election UKIP’s leadership has chosen to get themselves involved in yet another damaging court case.

Or is that part of the plan? Farage has been pushing for a Pan-European party for quite sometime. Farage can blame Nikki Sinclaire and ELCOM for bankrupting UKIP. He can then join his friends in a new EFD Party or maybe even the Tories!

From Peterborough Today:

The UK Independence Party has vowed to fight "baseless" legal action being threatened by an MEP who claims it acted unlawfully by expelling her from the party.

Nikki Sinclaire, who represents the West Midlands, was thrown out this month after refusing to be part of the multinational political group Ukip has joined in the European Parliament.

Her solicitors said she would take the case to the High Court, claiming the party was in breach of contract by not following its own constitution or its disciplinary rules and procedures.

She will also seek a ruling that its membership of the Europe of Freedom and Democracy group (EFD) is a breach of its own constitution as the group backs the EU institutions, they said. And she will argue that the "racist, homophobic, anti-Semitic (including Holocaust denial) views" of some parties in the group breach Ukip's non-discrimination rules.

But Ukip party secretary Michael Zuckerman: "We believe that her claims are baseless and we will challenge every point robustly."

The court challenge was announced as Ukip leader Lord Pearson of Rannoch unveiled its election manifesto at a party conference in Milton Keynes. He claimed that only complete withdrawal from the EU could deal with the two main "problems" voters were concerned about: the economy and immigration.

And he risked fury among some activists by calling for Ukip candidates with no hope of winning their seat to step aside if that would help a committed Tory eurosceptic to win the seat. He said there were only a "few" such cases but said opposing those candidates would "defeat our own greater purpose" and put party enthusiasms before the national interest.

Lord Pearson told the conference David Cameron's refusal to offer a referendum on Europe means a Tory election victory would spell "absolutely certain disaster" for Britain. Ukip needed to put in a strong enough performance in the election that, if it led to a hung parliament and another election, it would be "clear and unavoidable" to all parties that they would have to promise an EU referendum to stand a chance of getting a clear majority.

Lord Pearson also called for the introduction of Swiss-style binding referendums and a Royal Commission to decide whether global warming was a reality as part of the wide-ranging manifesto.

Ms Sinclaire had refused to sit with her own party members in European Parliament meetings since mid-January, citing the breakdown of her relationship with the party's leader in Europe Nigel Farage and the "extreme views" of some partner parties. She insisted she was not quitting the party - but Ukip's National Executive Committee removed the whip, also ending her position as its candidate for the Meriden seat in the general election.

Farage has a ball or does he?

We have already mentioned Nigel’s latest novel. See: LINK

Here is what The Sunday Times had to say:

Nigel Farage: Brimming over with bile and booze

The UKIP MEP and lounge bar lizard has a few scores to settle and is set on rattling the Establishment at the election

I’m quite relieved that Nigel Farage MEP has only one testicle. When the former leader of the UK Independence party (UKIP) had the other removed in 1987 because of cancer, the doctors offered him an artificial replacement to give him “greater social confidence”. But to watch him screaming at Herman Van Rompuy as he did last month, saying the European council president had the “charisma of a damp rag”, tearing around with a loudhailer on his campaign to oust John Bercow, the Commons Speaker, from his Buckingham seat, working “100-hour weeks”, inhaling whole packs of Rothmans and choffing down hundreds and hundreds of pints, I dread to think what he would be like with ... two.

(Junius says: We do wish that Nigel would get his facts right. He claims to have had testicular cancer at 19 and again at 22 - which begs the question who sired his children?)

“Amaaaaaaazing, isn’t it?” he says, swivelling in his chair in the MEPs’ offices in central London and spreading his pinstriped legs as far as they’ll go. At 45, he has the complexion of a used teabag. “I’ve got the unhealthiest lifestyle of the lot, but the most energy! I left home at 5am on Monday, got up at 4.30 this morning . . .”

Somewhere between Alan B’Stard and a frog — “actually, I think I look most like President Medvedev” — Farage has carved something of a niche for himself as a mouthy, brash agent provocateur. His recent explosion in the European parliament, in which he also told Van Rompuy that he had “the appearance of a low-grade bank clerk”, got him fined £2,700 and 40,000 hits on YouTube; most people thought he went too far.

(Junius says: That was very unkind to frogs. But we do note the resemblance!)

“Too far”, however, is not in the Farage lexicon. “All my speeches are like that! I’ve been doing that for 11 years. Look, I’m a . . .” — he gropes for a sufficiently weighty epithet — “veteran.” In fact, Nicolas Sarkozy absolutely loved the Faraging he got when they spoke in the EU parliament in 2008, even invited him to the Elysée Palace afterwards. “Sarko spent much more time with me than any of the other politicians, because he’d actually enjoyed it,” he says, voice rising to a shout. “He loved it.”

Still, “perhaps my delivery is a little shrill at times”, he concedes, twiddling his Spitfire cufflinks, “but [over the Van Rompuy affair] the parliament responded by fining me and questioning my right to speak freely”.

Er, abusively.

“I don’t think it was abusive. I was right!” he says. “Who is Herman Van Rompuy? Baroness Ashton [the EU high representative for foreign affairs] is even less well known. She never held elected office. She obviously ... married well.”

( Junius says: See the letter that Buzek sent to Farage by clicking here: LINK)

So, an inside job, because her husband, Peter Kellner, is an old friend of Tony Blair? “Of course it is! I very much doubt she’s up to doing it. But the highest-paid female politician in the world is not going to resign.”

He’s got a point, but I do wish he wouldn’t deliver it so odiously. But then, Farage is pretty odious: a shifty saloon-bar lizard. He stood down as UKIP leader last June — “the internal fights took up so much time” — to focus on being an MEP for the party. A rather odd task, representing a party in the European parliament whose sole desire is to get Brtitain out of the EU, but he has been fairly successful in raising awareness. Still, the operation overall has been typically amateur. Last November one of its MEPs, Tom Wise, was jailed for taking advantage of the generous EU expenses.

(Junius says: More lies! Farage was forced to stand down by Stuart Wheeler. See: LINK)

“I knew he was rotten within a fortnight,” boasts Farage now, although in a highly uncharacteristic episode of self-censorship, he initially kept his suspicions quiet, “because I didn’t know what he was doing, although I could just ... tell”. He “jolly well hope[s]” there aren’t any more wrong ’uns — but he’s been looking out for signs, which are “obvious”, he declares. “The six o’clock freebie cocktail party in the main reception area. If you see UKIP MEPs attending them on a regular basis you think, ‘Eh, what’s going on?’”

(Junius says: So why did Farage vote to end the investigation into Tom Wise? See: LINK. And why did he allow Tom Wise to remain in UKIP until he resigned in March of last year?

Here is a list of those people who voted to end the investigation:

Roger Knapman, Gerard Batten, Nigel Farage, Douglas Denny (switched his vote), Elizabeth Burton, Alan Bown, Rachel Oxley, John Whittaker and Michael Zuckerman).

I wonder how closely Farage patrols these cocktail parties. He says he hardly ever goes, but he’s not chanced on anything to worry about. Still, the bare fact that we’re discussing spying on fellow party members makes me wonder what kind of a bonkers outfit UKIP is. Admittedly, it’s always been a bit of a Dad’s Army of gambling addicted cab drivers, depressed publicans, constipated schoolmasters and second world war re-enactment nuts with unpalatable views on immigration: “the BNP in blazers”. Even Farage admits he has made “big mistakes in judgments of character” when it comes to recruitment, a process that tends to take place over long lunches.

(Junius says: Gambling addicted cab drivers, depressed publicans, constipated schoolmasters? That is no why to describe Don 'One for the Road' Ransome, Mark 'Friar Tuck' Croucher, Jonathan 'Frightened Rabbit' Arnott or Derek 'Who Am I? Clark!

But it is goo
d to know that you admit to making mistakes in recruitment. So when will you be giving Lord Pearson the boot?)

Farage readily admits he likes a drink — he’d be quite keen to conduct the interview in the pub, but 10.30am is “too early even for us”, he says, dolefully, glancing at his watch. “Give it 45.” Indeed the booze factor might explain the bizarre involvement of Robert Kilroy-Silk, the professionally irate former chat-show host, who burst onto the party scene in 2004, “to boost the party’s profile”, says Farage, but “suddenly, it all went to his head.” After a ham-fisted attempt on the leadership, Kilroy-Silk left and set up his own gang — sorry, party — Veritas, which spent “six months trying to destroy UKIP”.

Farage is now getting revenge in his autobiography, Fighting Bull, tracing his rise from irrepressible south London public-school boy to City metals trader and his current incarnation as single-issue cage rattler.

There are moments of unparalleled pomposity — “Others with my acumen ... would have won brilliant scholarships”, he writes of sitting the 11-plus; addressing 7,000 French farmers, he spoke in “un français parfait” — but much of it is straight bananas. The EU, according to Farage, is a “serial date rapist”: no matter how many times you say no, it only ever hears yes. A discussion of Arabs notes that they have made one outstanding contribution to western culture: the word “alcohol”.

(Junius says: But the EU made you a very rich man. What gratitude! And how is the Isle of Man account?)

Mostly, however, the book is about settling scores, or, as Farage describes it, “putting my side of the story”. The largest score is Kilroy-Silk, a vain, orange buffoon and “monster”.

Was Farage, who assumed the party leadership in 2006, a bit jealous of Kilroy-Silk’s profile? “Absolutely not!” he screams. “Absolutely not.” Actually he was “thrilled” and “delighted” that Kilroy-Silk came and stole all the thunder, but then he rather spoils things by going slightly too far, describing it as “before and after the birth of Christ”.

(Junius says: Yeah, we believe you. Millions wouldn't)

Farage’s current opponent, John Bercow, gets short shrift, too. The Speaker is traditionally unchallenged in parliamentary elections, but in standing against him Farage is trying to give voters an opportunity to “show their disenchantment with the political class”. In the book, Bercow is a “loose cannonball” with past far-right connections — all of which seems a little rich coming from Farage.

(Junius says: For more on Farage's far-right connections: LINK )

“Look,” he says. “I know you’ll laugh at me, but I don’t generally get involved in slagging people off. But he is very pleased with himself . . .”

Another of the book’s scores is ... well, just that. In 2006 Farage, who has been married twice and has four children, became the target of a tabloid kiss’n’tell when a woman from, of all places, Latvia claimed she had snogged him in a pub in Biggin Hill, Kent, before dragging him home, where he “stunned her with his kinky demands” and they had sex “at least seven times”. The revelation led to several jokes, including “UKIP if you want to”.

Seven times, I say. Wow. And on half power! Farage looks furtive, clearly searching for a way both to confirm this stunning feat of priapism and to deny it.

“Er ... well,” he says. “Yes. I did have a couple of phone calls, and there are cheers when I turn up at a student union ... but it’s not the sort of thing you plan. It was one of those very, very rare moments where I was ... out of control.”

(Junius says: You used to get 'out of control' with Annabelle Fuller on a regular basis. We are rather surprised that your desk managed to take the constant strain! And what about your latest bit on the side? Anyone for a bit of Morlock?)

As far as I can see, Farage has these very, very rare moments quite frequently. In 2004 he found himself in a lap-dancing bar during the French presidential campaign — with one of the candidates; in the book he recalls a more serious episode in 1985 when, trudging home somewhat refreshed, he barrelled over the bonnet of an oncoming VW. His blood-alcohol levels were so high he had to be sedated until they were sufficiently low for surgeons to operate.

(Junius says: And don't forget the brothels!)

The accident happened because he had been drinking all day — perfectly normal behaviour, apparently, at a time when “a proper lunch lasted seven, eight hours”, he recalls.

How much did they drink? “Oh, no,” he says. “I’m not doing the William Hague trick.”

Why not? “Because nobody would believe it if I told the truth.”

Go on! “Well. We’d have drinks before, and then a couple of bottles of red . . .” He ticks his fingers off. “We’d have quite a lot! Of course we would.”

Can he actually remember?

The idea that Farage can’t hold his drink is clearly preposterous. “People that know me well,” he raises his voice, “would tell you that they’ve hardly ever seen me pissed. And I’m rather proud of that.”

But you got run over! “I wasn’t blind drunk,” he says.

“I’d had,” he chortles, “a good day.”

(Junius says: Nigel was lying in the gutter at the time)

Has he ever worried about alcoholism? His father, also a metals trader, was a terrible alcoholic. “I’ve been lucky,” he says. “I can pack it up for a week and it’s not a problem. It’s how we’re made. My father was made in the way it took him over and it wrecked him. But I’m lucky. I’m one of those people who can take it or leave it.”

He glances at his watch again, and I think how nice it’d be if he just went to the pub and stayed there for ever, and sure enough he is there two days later when I call his press officer to confirm which testicle he had removed. Farage has just given his party conference speech and is in high spirits. “Tell her to come and find out, ha-ha-ha!” he shouts over the din.

Stuart ‘Gollum’ Gulleford resigns as a PPC

It is with great sadness that we report the resignation of Gollom as the UKIP PPC for Brentwood, Essex.

Gollum was ‘political adviser’ to Jeffery Titford. He now 'works' for Stuart Agnew and David Bannerman - UKIP MEPs in the Eastern Region.

It appears that the poor creature couldn’t afford to take unpaid leave to fight the upcoming General Election.

New EU rules prevents the staff of MEPs from standing unless they take unpaid leave for the length of the election period.

It is interesting to note that neither David Bannerman or Stuart Agnew were prepared to help him to fight the seat. And nor was his ‘good friend’ Jeffrey Titford.

In the past more than UKIP MEP has agreed to cover the expenses and pay of those members of staff who wanted to stand for Westminster. We must assume that Gollom is not as popular as he thought!

We note that Michael ‘Honey Monster’ McGough is to replace him. Pity poor Brentwood!

Mr McGough first shot to fame after it emerged that he had lied in his UKIP MEP election statement to members. He had claimed to be the UKIP PPC for Harlow. This was a lie. He also likes to illustrate his profound stupidity by posting moronic comments on the British Democracy Form.

This is what Piers Merchant - UKIP’s Returning Officer - had to say:

“I also received complaints about Michael McGough, who, it was claimed, described himself as a UKIP PPC when he was not, thus seriously misleading the voters”.

His concerns were ignored by UKIP's corrupt NEC.


From the Brentwood Gazette:

BRENTWOOD'S UKIP candidate has had to pull out of the general election race because he cannot afford to continue.

New EU rules - which forbid people who are on the staff of MEPs from standing unless they take unpaid leave for the length of the election period - means that Stuart Gulleford has had to stand down as a candidate for the Brentwood and Ongar seat.

The replacement is Michael McGough, of Epping, who has been both a Westminster and European Election candidate.

Mr Gulleford said: "This has placed me in a very difficult position as a single parent with a son at university and a mortgage in 2005, when I was the candidate.

"They are anti-democratic as they place barriers in the way of people being able to pursue what should be their right to stand in a democratic society.

"Now it seems only the wealthy may stand. I am not even allowed to use my holiday entitlement during the election period, which is iniquitous.

"Even if I did take the leave of absence, it would only be on paper, as I cannot be spared at the MEP's office, where I have a very busy and demanding job, for that length of time.

UKIP slogans & why Dan Hannan now says don't vote UKIP

The chickens are coming home to roost. UKIP MEPs often felt a bit left out when they realised that Farage preferred dining and plotting with his Tory chums in Brussels and Strasbourg than with them.

Now, with a general election looking, his "chums" are showing their true faces. That little Tory pipsqueak Dan Hannan - possibly the most irritating man in politics - has advised against voting for UKIP, in a blog posting that has received considerable media coverage. Hannan describes a UKIP vote as a "wasted" vote.

'There are only two possible Prime Ministers: David Cameron and Gordon Brown. Voting UKIP in a place like Seaford means boosting the prospects of its Euro-fanatical LibDem MP, Norman Baker, who reneged on his promise of a referendum, and who argues that the EU “is central to the UK’s economic prosperity”. Voting UKIP, in Seaford as in many other constituencies, means putting a federalist into parliament. It risks prolonging the tenure of this incompetent, wastrel, cowardly Labour regime.

"Readers of this blog know that David Cameron and I don’t agree about European integration. I want an in-or-out referendum, and returned to the backbenches to campaign for one. But David Cameron will be a million times better than Gordon Brown as Prime Minister.

"To repeat: Labour has introduced 111 tax rises since 1997, taken a trillion pounds in additional taxation, and still left us with a Greek-level deficit: 12.6 per cent of GDP and rising. Of every four pounds Gordon Brown spends, one is borrowed. Our national debt is rising by nearly £6,000 a second. We can’t afford another five weeks of this, let alone another five years.

"What I’d ideally like – and what I assume my UKIP readers also aspire to – is a situation where UKIP no longer needs to exist: where it can award itself a medal and retire with honour, job done. Obviously, we’re not at that point yet. But I worry that every activist who deserts the Tories for UKIP is retarding the prospects of a Euro-sceptic Conservative Party without taking his or her energies to an alternative party of government."

Now even that most charming and decent of Tories, Roger Helmer, has lost his patience with the Farage Party, and has complained that UKIP has lifted his "Straight Talking" slogan - one he has used for 10 years.

Sorry Roger. A competition was held in UKIP's Brussels offices to come up with a suitable slogan, and we are pleased to publish the 5 shortlisted offerings.

1. Death to the EU Soviet and its Bilderberger paymasters.

2. Fight to the last testicle against the Soviet EUnion.

3. Stop the Jewish Bankers - Expose Climate Change as a Communist Plot.

4. Vote UKIP - and this time next year we'll all be millionaires.

5. Let's just nick Roger Helmer's Straight Talking slogan.

So as you can see, once everybody sobered up and Derek Clark went back to sleep at his desk, common sense prevailed.
