UKIP lose desposit in Bradford West by-election disaster

A truly terrible result for UKIP. And yet the Farage sycophants seem to think that a pathetic 1.31% increase in the vote, losing your deposit and coming fifth behind the Lib Dems - the party that Farage claimed UKIP had replaced as Britain's third party - is cause for celebration!

It is interesting to note that the usual sycophants were claiming that UKIP would come third with a substantial increase in the vote. How foolish must they feel now!

And what a tragedy for Britain that the odious Galloway has been returned to Westminster!

It is also  interesting to note that Galloway got almost 56% of the vote. Compare this result with the last time Farage contested a Westminster by-election. He was contesting a seat where Labour and the Lib Dems were not fielding candidates. UKIP poured money into the campaign and brought in dozens of activists to leaflet and canvass on behalf of Farage. And the result? The UKIP leader came third behind an independent, pro-EU candidate! LINK

UKIP will never send an MP to Westminster under Farage. UKIP exists to keep Nigel and his sycophants on the EU Gravy Train. It exists to serve his vanity and increase the size of his bank balance at the expense of party members and the UK taxpayer.

The full Bradford West result (with share of the vote and change since 2010 in brackets):

George Galloway (Respect) 18,341 (55.89%, +52.83%)
Imran Hussain (Lab) 8,201 (24.99%, -20.36%)
Jackie Whiteley (C) 2,746 (8.37%, -22.78%)
Jeanette Sunderland (LD) 1,505 (4.59%, -7.08%)
Sonja McNally (UKIP) 1,085 (3.31%, +1.31%)
Dawud Islam (Green) 481 (1.47%, -0.85%)
Neil Craig (D Nats) 344 (1.05%)
Howling Laud Hope (Loony) 111 (0.34%)

UKIP: Gerard Batten MEP and the Far-right

Gregory Lauder-Frost is a controversial figure. Whilst working as a payroll operations manager he admitted to eight specimen charges of embezzling £110,000 from Riverside health authority in 1992 and was jailed for two years. The court was told he had channelled money into extreme right-wing political causes.

This was not his only brush with the law, as it emerged at the end of his trial that he had also been implicated in attempts to sell elderly Russian arms to far right groups in the USA.

Lauder-Frost has a history of far-right connections, including with Clive Derby-Lewis who was jailed for life for his role in the murder of the ANC leader Chris Hani.

During his involvement with the white supremacist 'Western Goals', the group's magazine, European Dawn, carried an interview with Franz Shonuber, a former SS officer. It was claimed by The Scotsman newspaper in 1987 that Western Goals may have been used by its U.S. associates as a conduit for funds to the Nicaraguan Contras following the Contragate scandal.

In December 2006, Lauder-Frost's name was found on a leaked copy of the BNP membership list.

On April 23rd 2010 Lauder Frost presided over a dinner at the National Liberal Club which was attended by, amongst others, Adrian Davies (former barrister to holocaust denier David Irving), and Sam Swerling (a BNP member). Lauder-Frost was an associate of the late Mike Smith, a notorious far-right figure, and kept company with Stuart Milson, an-ex BNP member and self-confessed fascist.

The Monarchist league, Western Goals, the Conservative Democratic Alliance, the Monday Club, the list of failed right-wing groups associated with Lauder-Frost goes on and on.

Now there is yet another of these right-wing entities, The Traditional Britain Group, and guess who is Vice-President? You guessed it - Gregory Lauder-Frost!

The group held a dinner in London in November, and boasted a guest speaker - UKIP MEP Gerard Batten. This was held at the Charing Cross Hotel, which was previously the venue for a notorious dinner held by Western Goals in 1991 in honour of their guest, Jean Marie Le Pen, of the French Front Nationale. Western Goals also held a dinner to commemorate the life of General Franco, and have met with Alessandra Mussolini.

Given that Batten is implicated in certain allegations that have been subject to legal process, is it wise for him to be seen publicly associating with such people? While Farage struggles to dismiss charges that UKIP sits with racists and extremists in the European Parliament, Batten takes the decision to speak at a meeting that clearly positions him alongside some of the most notorious right wing elements on the lunatic fringe of British politics.

UKIP: Farage critic removed and more Steve Allison

Martin Harvey

Farage critic removed

We note that Martin Harvey - UKIP Branch Chairman, former PPC, former NEC candidate and Farage critic - has been removed as chairman of the Harlow branch in the Eastern Region. The meeting to remove him was held last weekend. Mr Harvey has been a stern critic of UKIP's corrupt leadership for many years. His recent criticism of the proposed constitutional changes was seen by UKIP's leadership as the final straw. He was also accused - without proof - of supplying information to GLW and this blog.

We note that the odious Peter Reeve and the regional chairman (Reeve's lackey) attended the meeting to 'advise' members to vote against Mr Harvey in the 'interests' of the party.

GLW has also mentioned this on twitter. We note that super efficient UKIP has yet to remove Harvey's name from the UKIP website. He is still listed as branch chairman: LINK

Steve Allison accused of trying to get UKIP candidates elected through the back door

Steve Allison looks forward to reading the next Junius and GLW postings about him

Interesting article on Steve Allison and his new 'party'!

THE chairman of UKIP’s Hartlepool branch said claims the formation of a new political party is an attempt to get their councillors elected by the back door are “nonsense”.

Hartlepool Independents – Putting Hartlepool First was accused of trying to deceive voters in an email circulated to all councillors earlier this week.

Party members denied the accusations and Eric Wilson, chairman of the UKIP Hartlepool branch, has also slammed the claims.

Mr Wilson said: “The suggestion that the formation of Hartlepool Independents is an attempt by UKIP to get councillors elected by the back door is nonsense.

“UKIP want our candidates to be elected on their own merits.”

It comes after an email from former UKIP councillor and Hartlepool Independents secretary Stephen Allison, dating back to last July, was leaked by former UKIP member Stephen Haddow.

Mr Haddow said Hartlepool Independents – Putting Hartlepool First was deliberately created and registered in a bid to elect UKIP councillors by the back door.

At the time Mr Allison was vice chairman of UKIP and a member of the party’s national executive committee. But he severed all links with UKIP last November.

The email was a report of an NEC meeting which featured talks about “dual candidates”, something Mr Allison said he was pushing for at the time.

In the email, Mr Allison said: “If, for example, an organisation called Hartlepool Independents or Hartlepool Residents was registered with the Electoral Commission, UKIP could reach an agreement to field joint candidates.

“The ballot paper could say Hartlepool Independent and UKIP candidate or Hartlepool Residents and UK Independence Party candidate.”

Mr Wilson said: “I question Mr Haddow’s motives for leaking the email weeks before important local elections. It’s a pathetic attempt to discredit UKIP and Hartlepool Independents.

“Mr Haddow claims to be a former member of UKIP. He has never been a member of the Hartlepool branch and to my knowledge has never requested information about UKIP.”

Mr Wilson said UKIP intended to put forward candidates in all 11 wards for the all-out local elections in May in which the number of councillors will be cut from 47 to 33 and the number of wards reduced from 17 to 11.

Councillor Geoff Lilley, leader of Hartlepool Independents, previously said: “Hartlepool Independents has no links to UKIP. I am not, and never have been, a member of UKIP.”
Mr Allison said: “There is no link between Hartlepool Independents and UKIP.”

The party is registered with the Electoral Commission as Hartlepool Independents – Putting Hartlepool First.

Steve Allison: UKIP's Idiot of the Month

Steve Allison: More stupid than he looks

We had hoped that Mr Allison's experiences on UKIP's undemocratic NEC had knocked some sense into him. LINK. We were wrong!

Mr Allison has been busy trying to persuade concerned UKIPPERS that the recent 92% Yes vote to change UKIP's constitution was untainted by the stench of corruption and vote rigging.

He was most upset that we chose to repeat allegations - made by many UKIPPERS - that the vote had been rigged. LINK. We had no idea that Mr Allison believed in suppressing freedom of speech within UKIP. So they have no right to express their concerns? He gets more like Nigel with every passing day!

Mr Allison honestly expects UKIPPERS to believe that 92% of party members voted to give Farage dictatorial powers. The last leader to get 92% voter approval was Hitler! Mr Allison is clearly more stupid than he looks!

Mr Allison posted several comments on Dr Edmond's blog regarding the vote. It is interesting to note that he admits that UKIP's leadership refused to allow 6 independent members of the party to observe the count. This should have sent out warning signals to even the most stupid. A party that had nothing to hide would have been more than happy to let members attend the vote.

Allison also admits that the party leadership declined to use the Electoral Reform Service for the vote. Another warning sign but one that Mr Allison is clearly too stupid to heed. He claims that it would have "cost too much". Dr Edmond asked Mr Allison the following:

Steve when I got a quote from the ERS to handle MEP list voting it was virtually the same price as UKIP doing it themselves. What were your organisations costs compared to the ERS? Did you get a quote from ERS?

Mr Allison declined to answer these questions by claiming it was "pretty academic". We'll take that as a no then!

Hold me, Nigel! A couple made in Heaven ....... or so Jon would love to think

And let us not forget that Jonathan 'frightened rabbit' Arnott was the returning officer for the election. Arnott is so far up Nigel's arse that he has forgotten what the Sun looks like. You couldn't have picked a more untrustworthy person to oversee the election but try telling Allison that!

That Steve Allison could so easily been hoodwinked by Farage tells us all we need to know about this failed wannabe MEP and his naivety.

This is what GLW had to say on the subject:


sadly UKIP has a clear and undeniable track record of fiddling internal elections and thus regardless of Steve Allison's offensive rejoinder.

May I suggest people study the abuse of the internet by extremist UKIP staff such as the odious and utterly dishonest Mark Croucher also the official censures of UKIP by The Data Protection Commission.

I appreciate there are those who were and are on the payrpll and seeking preferment on the gravy train who have and do lie about UKIP for personal gain.

One need only consider Nigel's right hand Ms. Annabelle Fuller the foul mouthed liar who helped rig one of UKIP's elections.

Steve Allison must be describing the deficiency of Farage's testese or perhaps his own - Clearly his statement is wrong, untrue, unsound and dishonest!

One need only consider the liar and cheat Mick McGough and his criminal offensive spamming and serial dishonesty and corruption to PROVE Steve Allison's claims to be false.

Just look at the calliber of the self seekers on The NEC and the lack of ethics of those who remain as UKIP MEPs

Pwehaps someone can cite an example, outside of dictatorships & the third world where a 92% vote - the only mittigation being that the ONLY publicity on the imposition of the new dictatorial and centra;ised Constitution was staggeringly dishonest - little wonder that UKIP completely reversed its vote when last this undemocratic concept was put forward.

Clearly 92% return from the claimed membership list is in itself far from plausible let alone that they ALL voted in favour of an EU style centralised dictatorship - Even going so far as to use The EU's corrupt methods of if you don't get the result you want represent the question and bully the victims to vote agai.

May I suggest a perusal of Nigel Farage's various speeches in Ireland condemning the very methods he has chose to use for his own personal gain.

Sadly Steve Allison seems to be easily duped!


Nuff said! To read Dr Edmond's blog comments: LINK

UKIP: Kent newspaper asks Nigel Farage is he value for money? He declines to answer!

Nigel Farage. On the EU Gravy Train and loving it!

This is Kent recently commented on Farage's failure to publish his allowances, plus the fact that he pays his wife. LINK. A clearly rattled Farage personally declined to comment on these awkward facts and got Annabelle Fuller - his mistress and 'assistant' - to claim that he had 'lost' the receipts. Yeah right! That's about convincing as Annabelle's story about that Moroccan taxi driver story! Link. You know you're in trouble when you have to resort to getting the disgraced and discredited Fuller to defend you! For more on Fuller: LINK

Ms Fuller: Friend of Morrocan taxi drivers, collector of Blackberry phones and a millstone around Farage's neck

It is intersting to note that This is Kent conducted a survey to see how many people recognised their MEP. Only three in a hundred could name Farage! We hear that Nigel was most upset upset upon hearing this revelation. So much for all those appearances on Question Time and the Daily Politics!

The Kent and Sussex Courier also contacted Farage and asked if he was value for money. He declined to answer. Says it all, really!

From This is Kent:

Are our MEPs worth £157k?

THEY were mistaken for Arthur Scargill, Richard Attenborough and Gillian McKeith, the peculiar woman from TV programme You Are What You Eat who made her name by analysing human waste.

Sadly, the truth was far less interesting. The Courier took to the streets of Tunbridge Wells last week to conduct a survey of 100 people to see whether they could identify their ten Members of European Parliament.

Three others managed to guess UKIP's leader Nigel Farage.

But for the remaining 96 per cent of respondents, the closest they could get was a quizzical "are they councillors?"

For many, the European Union remains a mysterious monolith and, if our survey is anything to go by, its players are as obscure as ever.

Yet the basic salary for an MEP of e95,484 (£79,400) is considerably more than the basic salary of an MP in the House of Commons. They earn £65,700.

This is before the e303 they get for every day they attend the European Parliament – an average of 142 times a year for our MEPs.

They also take sizeable chunks of money to fund their offices and pay staff salaries.

Three of them – Richard Ashworth, Nirj Deva and Nigel Farage – admit to employing members of their own families.

It begs the question: what exactly do they do?

The Courier contacted all the South East's MEPs to ask precisely that.

The spokesman for Lib Dem Sharon Bowles described her role as "very extensive", claiming she takes just two weeks' holiday a year and works seven days a week.

He added: "She represents the residents of South East England in Parliament and answers their queries and helps them with problems that have some European aspect to them."

Mrs Bowles' Lib Dem colleague Catherine Bearder described herself as a "staunch supporter" of the EU, representing more than eight million people in an area stretching from Oxford down to East Sussex and Kent. London is not included.

She said: "I ensure environmental protection is at the heart of European policy, campaign on social justice issues – significantly human trafficking – and push the huge benefits of an economic union."

Keith Taylor is the region's only representative from the Green Party.

He explained while the Greens accepted that the EU needed to become more democratic and accountable, some decisions had to be made at a European level.

"Most of our environmental legislation comes from the EU and there's also EU legislation to protect consumer rights, animal welfare, human rights, health and people's working conditions," he said.

Labour's Peter Skinner said it was his job to represent the interests of his constituents.

He added: "A lot of work needs to be done to make people feel connected to what happens in Europe and why it's relevant to their day-to-day lives.

"However, as the single biggest market in the world, it is crucial to our exports and supports millions of jobs."

Tory spokesman John Furbisher said they had led the way in openness and transparency, volunteering to publish their allowances online.

"Our expenses and staffing costs reflect the fact we are obliged to work and run offices in three countries: Britain, Belgium and France," he added.

"Legislation passed in Brussels and Strasbourg has enormous impact on life and prosperity in Britain – and we are elected to bring a British Conservative influence to bear on that law-making and to represent our constituents."

Since the Lisbon Treaty, the European Parliament has increased its powers and now shares legislation implementation with the 27 EU commissioners and the Council of the European Union, which comprises ministers from each home nation's parliament.

But are they really worth all the money they are paid?

For the most part our MEPs evaded the question, except for Mrs Bearder who said: "Based on my workload, I feel the British taxpayer certainly gets value for money out of me as an MEP.

UKIP: Gerard Batten Hearing

We note that the Gerard Batten hearing has ended. Batten had been taken to a tribunal by a former employee. LINK. The decision should be made available in the next week or so. Batten's future as an MEP now hangs in the balance.

UKIP: And yet more dire election results

We note that Farage's sycophants are still trying to claim that UKIP is surging ahead in the polls - despite all the evidence to the contrary. So why aren't they winning seats? Coming third, fourth or last is hardly cause for celebration! So why has their vote dropped in many areas? Why are branches closing? These are questions that the sycophants are not prepared to answer.

The Grantham and Stamford branch was one of the most successful branches in UKIP. And yet it has now folded due to a collapse in membership. Only four member attended the last meeting and none were prepared to run it! Such is Derek "I luv a piece of cod" Clark's legacy!

Braintree District - Braintree East: Lab 554, C 388, UKIP 131, Green 76, No description 32. (May 2011 - Three seats Lab 762, C 759, Lab 756, 710, C 691, 668, Green 297). Labour gain from C. Swing 5.9% C to Lab.

Braintree District - Geat Notley and Braintree West: C 532, Lab 232, UKIP 155, Green 61. (May 2011 - Three seats C 1435, 1418, 1211, Lab 407, 362, 306, Green 274). C hold. Swing 8.8% C to Lab.

Broxtowe Borough- Toton and Chillwell Meadows: C 831, Lab 385, Lib Dem 300, UKIP 228 . (May 2011 - Three seats C 1529, 1491, 1413, Lab 926, 925, 837, Lib Dem 377, 334, UKIP 305, Lib Dem 304). C hold. Swing 3.1% Lab to C. UKIP vote down 77 votes since May 2011.

Nottinghamshire County. - Chillwell and Toton: C 1958, Lib Dem 1375, UKIP 682. (June 2009 - Two seats - Two seats C 3388, 3356, Lab 1442, 1135, Lib Dem 1076, 998, UKIP 786, Green 658, BNP 546, Green 500). C hold. Swing 8.0% C to Lib Dem. UKIP vote down by 104 votes since 2009.

Scarborough Borough - Hertford: C 663, Lab 208, UKIP 126, Lib Dem 99. (May 2011 - Two seats Green 1192, C 902, 444, Lab 287). C gain from Green. Swing 11.7% Lab to C.

UKIP: Nigel Farage fails to publish his allowances ..... again

An excellent article that exposes the hypocrisy of Nigel Farage. His claim to have lost his receipts is a truly pathetic excuse. And he's fooling no-one. So what about all the other times he failed to publish his allowances? Did he 'lose' the receipts for those? He clearly has much to hide!

Farage has the nerve to condemn the EU but is more than happy to 'employ' his wife using EU money. So what does she do for the £25,000 plus? No-one knows for Farage refuses to provide details. And yet he has the cheek in the article to claim that he is not 'feathering' the Farage nest by employing her! So why is he employing her? Did he ever advertise the job that she is supposedly doing? The answer is no. And let us not forget that this EU money is British taxpayers money.

From This is Kent:

UKIP leader only MEP to not publish allowances
THE ever-vocal UKIP leader Nigel Farage, from Downe, is the only Member of the European Parliament in the South East who has not published his full allowances.

MEPs do not have to publish allowance details by European law, but the region's nine other MEPs have chosen to do so.

Nigel Farage: Laughing all the way to the bank

In a statement from Mr Farage's office, a spokesman said the details had not been put online because the receipts had been "lost somewhere in transportation" between Mr Farage and his accountant.

The last set of accounts he published, detailing his trips to the European Parliament, dates back to June 2010.

Mr Farage, who employs wife Kirsten on a salary of more than £25,000, funded by the taxpayer, insisted there was "no feathering of nests".

Stridently anti-EU in his views, Mr Farage said: "Nothing about the EU gives value for money to Britain.

"I may be paid more than an MP but my constituency is bigger than many countries in the EU and there is no 'feathering of nests' in the Farage household, I can assure you."

In a Kent survey conducted by our investigations editor Stuart Woledge to see how well people knew their MEPs, only three in 100 people identified Mr Farage.

UKIP's Idiot of the Week: Stuart Agnew MEP

John Agnew - or Stuart as he likes to be known - is not the brightest of sparks.

He is a self-appointed expert on matters of which he knows nothing, but it is on the subject of climate change where he really provides the best entertainment. According to his blog, there is no such thing as global warming because it was a bit chilly on his farm last weekend. He writes "According to the last figures I heard, we had not actually warmed at all in the 2000s!" Where he heard that we can only speculate. Perhaps he was briefed on the subject by that other buffoon and wannabe Lord, Mad Monckton, UKIP's resident loony.

Average temperatures for the period 2001-2010 were 0.20°C above those of 1991-2000. Not a particularly startling statistic, but one that exposes Agnew's stupidity for what it is.

By extension, Agnew could argue that are no such things as tidal waves, because his farm was not hit by one last Tuesday. But that really is the level of intellect in Farage's UKIP. And people wonder why the party is not taken seriously.

Yet another UKIP Round-Up

David Bannerman campaigns for the Tories in London. Someone please warn Boris!

David Bannerman is really trying to ingratiate himself with his new political masters in order to get the lead Tory MEP position (Eastern Region) in the next EU elections. He is now telephone canvasing for Boris Johnson in London. Someone should warn Boris that this serial liar is under investigation for fraud. OF/2010/0282. See: LINK

We wonder how the OLAF investigation is progressing? Will David tell us? You can contact David on 01954 210333 or 07796 225237. Email: office@dcbmep.org.

Roger Helmer's begging letter

We note that Roger Helmer has sent out a begging letter to UKIPPERS. So how much does Mr Helmer intend to contribute to UKIP funds?

Some UKIPPERS still believe that Mr Helmer joined UKIP after seeing the light regarding the Tories and their stance on the EU. Think again! Helmer only left the Tories after failing to get his pal selected as his successor. He had a hissy fit and joined UKIP to rub their noses in it! LINK

Pan-European UKIP

Nigel Farage still plans to turn UKIP pan-European. And why? To get more money for himself and his cronies! Consider the above photo. UKIP are already putting out posters which link them with the pan-European EAF!

UKIP's Peter Reeve and Lisa Duffy: The naivety of Tim Congdon

Prof Congdon foolishly falls for Farage's lies that he will not take UKIP into a pan-European party. He is persuaded to back the Yes vote for the new UKIP constitution.

And now he's singing the praises of two of the most incompetent and corrupt members of UKIP!

Why are some intellectuals so naive? We are reminded of those UK academics who travelled to Stalin's Soviet Union in the 30's. They came away singing his praises after being assured by his sycophants that 'Uncle Joe' was a nice guy and all those stories about millions being murdered were just fascist spin.

One can only assume that the Professor has been the victim of a very nasty blow to the head.  Only such an accident can explain these laughable quotes from one of his recent emails!

"We are fortunate to have as our guest speakers UKIP’s two most successful campaigners in local elections, Cllr. Lisa Duffy and Cllr. Peter Reeve. "

"The Forest of Dean branch is exceptionally lucky to have Lisa and Peter to tell us how to organize local election campaigning ahead of an important electoral test. I am sure attendees will pick up lots of tips and ideas for their own local election battles."    

We would strongly advise the Professor to do a little bit of research on these chumps before making any similar statements in the future. It may prevent him looking even more foolish!

Here a few facts:

Ramsey Town Council (of which Duffy is Mayor and Reeve a Councillor) has the same powers as a parish council. Nothing more, nothing less. To present this a massive victory for UKIP is absurd!

Candidates were always non-political. But then along came Reeve and Duffy.

We can confirm via our contacts in Ramsey that recent events have left a very sour taste in the town with allegations of 'dirty tricks' on the part of Reeve and his munchkins.

For instance:

Reeve posted numerous election posters across the town WITHOUT getting permission from the local authorities. Complaints were made to the returning officer and they were removed. However, within a few days they had mysteriously reappeared. Reeve, of course, claimed to know nothing about this.

Reeve also distributed election literature which failed to comply with electoral law. For instance, official UKIP leaflets and letters failed to mention who had promoted or printed the literature.

They are allegations that UKIP's election expenditure far exceeded the amount allowed by law.

The Lib Dems did not contest the election and the Tories failed to distribute election literature or even conduct a basic campaign. UKIP was given a easy ride.

Three of UKIP's councillors don't even live in Ramsey.

Reeve at the very first council meeting had the UKIP councillors appoint Lisa Duffy, his girlfriend, mayor. He also instructed them to appoint Ian Curtis, his friend, deputy mayor.

He then told the non-UKIP councillors - he used the words 'you lot' - to sit on the other side of the table as 'his councillors' did not wish to sit with them. This arrogant, combative stance has angered many in the town.

Reeve is also claiming credit for planning a Micro Business Centre in the town, In fact, this idea was first put forward by the 'Ramsey Initiative'. See:

Reeve and Duffy are VERY ambitious people. They ultimate goal is sit alongside Farage in Brussels. Reeve, on his first visit to Brussels, was heard to to say: I'd love to work here! Reeve also thinks that one day he will become UKIP's first elected MP. He has even promised to marry Duffy in Westminster once elected as a Cambridgeshire MP. She's got a long wait!

They are using the people of Ramsey for their own sordid ends. Greed is the sole thing that motivates this dishonest pair!

Delusions of grandeur has always formed a large part of the psyche of this unsavoury duo! Let's just hope that the Town's officials are good at damage limitation!

We have been amused by the amount of UKIP supporters on Twitter, Facebook and the blogs who seem to think that winning a majority (in crude fashion) on a non-political council is a cause for celebration.

Reeve still works for David Bannerman. This is despite the fact that Bannerman now sits as a Tory MEP. Money still means more to Reeve than loyalty to his party. LINK 

And don't forget that Reeve is still under investigation by OLAF for alleged fraud after Stuart Agnew admitted on camera that both he and David Bannerman were misusing their allowances to pay Reeve! The OLAF case number is:  

OF/2010/0282. See: LINK


'Duffy was exposed as a liar in a British court when she claimed ON OATH that the NEC was unaware that Alan Hardy had been a member of the BNP until his attempt to renew his membership in 2010. In fact, the leadership of UKIP – including Farage - was fully aware of Mr Hardy’s involvement with the BNP. Mr Hardy has letters from Farage, Nuttall and Allison (dated 2007) which confirm this. See: LINK

It is interesting to note that Ms Duffy and her partner - Peter Reeve - have a habit of taking her very young children to UKIP meetings in the East. On more than occasion members have been shocked to see the 'loving parents' leave their children to fall asleep on the floor as the meeting dragged on late into the night. The children had to go to school the next day. What a 'caring' mother!

Her only 'talent' is to stay in favour with the leadership and either support or turn a blind eye to corruption within UKIP. That's how she became 'head' of Young Independence after Del Young was removed from that position. See: LINK

But for people like her UKIP would have been cleaned up years ago. But that is why she was promoted to Director of UKIP - a very well-paid position!. Nigel ALWAYS supports his sycophants in their time of need!

But we have no doubt that some misguided fools out there will actually think that she is an asset to UKIP.

But look at what one disgruntled UKIPPER had to say about Duffy and YI on the British Democracy Forum:

youl get no defence from me, the chairman asked me about coming to a meeting in London and he never even replied to my questions about further details- coming from NI it would have been useful, sent emails about other less trivial things as well and still no emails from anyone in YI , cant even awnser a phone, they didnt even reply when I asked for information on how to get more involved in YI you'd think they would be keen on thisanyway lodged complaints with several party officials, I know im not the only one to have issues with YI, it needs ripped apart and restarted if you ask me

End of statement. Spelling and grammar as the original.

Consider these facts:

Duffy - also known as Scruffy Duffy - promised Farage hundreds of new YI members by the end of 2008. She failed to keep her promise.

The YI five-a-side football matches also failed to materialise.

The YI newsletter - supposedly a regular publication- appeared with as much frequency as Halley’s Comet.

The YI website was about as informative as listening to David Bannerman’s maiden speech as an MEP.

She ignores emails and requests for help from members.

Such is Duffy's legacy.

And not let us forget her role in spreading lies about Gregg Beaman.

This is what Mr Beaman had to say about her after he stood down as lead MEP candidate in the North West:

I then had Lisa Duffy emailing people claiming that I stood down because of a debilitating illness and because I had only expected to come third rather than first. More fibs from a member of the ruling clique.

One of life's ironies is that it was only in May 2008, at the North West Spring Conference in Morecambe, that Rachel Oxley and Lisa Duffy had complained to me that Annabelle Fuller had spent the Saturday evening texting Nigel Farage, quite suggestively and quite openly, about what she wanted to do with him when he came to the North West the following day.

Lacking the courage of their convictions they happily passed it on to me. But later Duffy was terrified that the Party Chairman was upset with her for 'spilling the beans' on the Leader.

And that was after them specifically asking me to pass on their concerns to the Party Chairman.

But Lisa Duffy was that way inclined. Before the last leadership election she had phoned me in a terrible panic after she had been contacted to consent to Farage's nomination but had already promised to consent to David Campbell Bannerman's candidacy. She didn't understand that democracy worked that way. She clearly lacks the courage of he convictions, if indeed she has any convictions. Don't fight for what you believe, just stay in with the right people seems to be her philosophy.


And don't forget how she enthusiastically supported the expulsion of David Abbott, Martin Haslam and Eric Edmond from UKIP's NEC.

Here is the email she sent to various members of the NEC just prior to Dr Edmond's unlawful expulsion from that body:


I have already said to Paul to allow him his moment. We all know how vile this man has behaved, but by allowing a small amount of time to hear him I believe it makes us look fair in the eyes of the Party members and once and for all a decision will be made in front of Mr E and hopefully prevent any further negativity at this crucial election time.

To view the original:

And why was Dr Edmond branded vile?

Because he wanted UKIP to be open and democratic.

Because he committed the unforgivable sin of actually wanting to tackle the widespread corruption within the party.

Because he wanted to deal with complaints and not sweep them under the carpet.

It is not Dr Edmond who is vile. It is Lisa Duffy and her kind who best fit that particular description.

Why not contact the Forest of Dean’s branch secretary, Colin Guyton and ask him why they are prepared to play host to such an obnoxius pair? Colin’s phone number is 01594 541486 and his email address is colinguyton@onebillinternet.co.uk

UKIP becomes a full blown dictatorship as Farage gains total control over the Party following Constitution 'Vote'

UKIP Constitution

There are serious concerns regarding the outcome of the vote to change UKIP's constitution, a change that now gives Nigel Farage - via control of the NEC - the final say on who becomes an MEP candidate.

We remind our readers that it also gives Nigel Farage the final say on UKIP becoming a pan-European party (see below).

UKIP's leadership claim that 91.9% (6745) voted Yes. They also claim that only 593 (8.1% ) voted No. The last person to get such a massive percentage of yes votes was a certain Adolf Hitler in 1930's Germany! And that was always over 90%!  How apt that Farage now claims a similar dubious result!

Members of the Junius Team have contacted UKIPPERS across the UK and have yet to find a single member who voted Yes. The whole thing frankly stinks. So what of the allegations that voting slips from deceased members were received? What of the allegations that No slips mysteriously vanished? And what of the allegations that extra Yes slips were copied and later added to the Yes pile during the count?

So the last flickers of democracy in UKIP have been extinguished following a highly dubious vote. Hail the Fuhrer!

Tim Congdon duped by Farage

Tim Congdon dropped his opposition to UKIP's constitutional changes because Nigel Farage promised him that UKIP would not be taken into a pan-European party during his leadership. Our photo (taken in October 2011) shows that this was a lie. The placard has the UKIP logo alongside the EAF (a pan-European party) logo. This EAF sponsored placard is being held aloft by UKIP activists who are clearly wearing UKIP rosettes. Thanks to Farage, the EAF name and logo are now out on the streets of Westminster, being held high by UKIP members and activists.

Professor Congdon was duped..

It is a shame to see this. We can only hope that truth will prevail, and that the man who is one of UKIP's few intellectual assets will realise he was lied to and taken for a mug, and will have the courage to stand up to the man who has taken him for a mug. If he does, he will find a lot of support at grassroots level, and amongst the upper echelons of the party

UKIP: And yet another East Midlands branch closes

One of our contacts has told us that yet another UKIP branch in Lincolnshire has folded due to a collapse in membership and an unwillingness on the part of the few members left to take on the chairmanship.

And so the East Midlands continues it's slow death under the corrupt and incompetent Derek Clark MEP.

A former UKIPPER on the failings of UKIP

Has UKIP achieved its aim and what next for UKIP? by Major Niall Warry (rtd) - 

Resigned member of UKIP and ongoing supporter.

Formerly UKIP PPC, UKIP Branch Chairman, UKIP Head Office Manager, Chairman of UKIP Wales.
I’m not actually sure what UKIP’s aim is and visiting their website left me none the wiser, but I suppose if we take UKIP’s primary AIM as this much quoted saying of Nigel Farage's :-
"We seek an amicable divorce from the European Union and its replacement with a genuine free-trade agreement, which is what we thought we’d signed up for in the first place."
Then you would conclude that to date UKIP has NOT achieved its aim, nor is ever likely to.

Interestingly, and I see this as quite revealing insight into Nigel Farage’s current psyche, he doesn’t appear to say this anymore or certainly with as much clarity as he once did.

Why not?

Does he in his heart think, like I and many others do, that the most probable outcome is that the EU is going to collapse at sometime in the future?

Has he therefore, given his style and temperament, decided to enjoy the EU gravy train while he is able?
Is this not also supported by the fact that Nigel Farage was founder and co president of the EFD, for the extra money it gave UKIP, despite as a Group being pro EU membership and containing some extreme racists and anti homosexuals.
The one thing Nigel Farage is not, is stupid, and so he must have concluded that, so long as the LibLabCon continues to hold sway at Westminster, with UKIP so hopelessly low in the polls and the EU ignoring the various referendums voting NO to Lisbon then, there is absolutely NO chance of anyone helping to initiate the EU’s demise least of all UKIP.

This certainly gives Nigel Farage a perfect excuse for never having had any Strategy, Tactics or Plan!

However the past is the past but, going forward, what could UKIP still do that would assist the overall Eurosceptic cause?
Benefits Analysis and our Exit and Survival Strategy
Well as I have constantly repeated of late it could spearhead the vital and necessary work of producing and publishing for free distribution a full Benefits Analysis of why we would be ‘Better off Out’ and also a comprehensive Exit & Survival Strategy to ensure a smooth transition from EU membership to simply trading with the member states.
In support of these two most vital publications, what else should UKIP do as the self proclaimed brand leader and still, despite the internal troubles, the only realistic Eurosceptic political party?
Next Euro Election
Despite agreeing with Alan Sked’s initial view, that UKIP should not go to Brussels, we are now where we are and keeping our representation in the EU Parliament does have some useful advantages if handled correctly. However the key places on the Regional MEP lists should go to high profile candidates, of some recognised public gravitas, like Tim Congdon from the party.

There are of course many from outside the party who would be ideal candidates. High profile candidates, who are already in the public eye, could generate far more anti EU publicity which, given the current state of the EU, could help finish it off!

Funnily enough keeping Nigel Farage for his media skills and recognition would make him a useful part of the team, but he needs to realise that he is not cut out to be the leader as his behaviour, judgement and divisive nature have clearly shown over the years.

So it would be churlish not to recognise that the Euro Elections are still UKIP’s battle ground from which, with better leadership, better candidates and a basic plan a great deal more and better quality anti EU PR could be achieved.
Next General Election
Unlike the Euro Elections the facts are: UKIP have not even come close in 18 years in getting an MP elected. In addition the only MP who rebadged to UKIP, Bob Spink, left shortly afterwards having changed his mind one can only assume once he realised what Nigel Farage’s EUKIP was all about.

To still be only attracting, in the main, around 4% in domestic elections after so long has little meaning or value. Even when they do achieve a higher percentage share of the vote it still usually leaves them trailing in 3rd or 4th place.

In our traditonal two horse race it is ridiculous, on current form, to believe UKIP will have any meaningful relevance for years to come.

So in this area, of failing to make any impression at Westminster after 18 years, Nigel Farage’s lack of any coherent strategy, tactics or plan are surely laid bare.

To improve this situation detailed research and analysis is needed so that UKIP only select a limited number of seats in which they might have the most impact and then concentrate all their limited resources to these seats.

The trouble is, particularly under Nigel Farage, that UKIP have not been able to demonstrate that they are any better than the other parties and sadly Nigel Farage’s record shows that under his leadership he is unlikely to ever convince the British public that UKIP has what it takes.

There are so many reasons which bar UKIP from making a break through at Westminster it is difficult to know where to start. However just consider one of many examples of the muddle at the heart of UKIP.
As the ‘UNITED KINGDOM Independence Party’ they cannot even decide if they are for the Welsh Assembly or not. Recently the UKIP members in Wales wished to oppose the Assembly but Nigel Farage over ruled them.
Nigel Farage does manage to get some PR for his occasional outbursts of anti EU rhetoric but this has to be viewed alongside the overall smell of corruption in UKIP which, is there for all to see, and we can only assume will be used by the media in a manner of their choosing.

Given UKIP’s chequered history and policy confusions at its heart does anyone seriously think that the British people will ever vote in a UKIP MP?
UKIP under Nigel Farage’s leadership will never be good enough to seriously compete or beat the LibLabCon and so will sadly continue to be an irrelevance. By way of consolation, as one part of the Eurosceptic Movement, they can at least look forward to the EU’s collapse knowing, along with the likes of Jimmy Goldsmith’s efforts to keep us out the Euro, that they did have a walk on part in this drama!

However the job is far from done and the two big outstanding jobs that need to be tackled, and UKIP are ideally suited to take this on, is first to complete a Benefits Analysis as to how much better off we would be outside the EU and second to publish a detailed Exit and Survival Strategy to go into the detail of how we extract ourselves from the EU to make our withdrawal as smooth as possible when the time comes.

Repatriating powers from Brussels needs to be carefully planned for as the old saying goes:
“Time spent in preparation and planning is seldom wasted”.
Can EUkip once again become UKIP and rise to these two important challenges with a strategy, tactics and plan for the next Euro and General Elections that will assist and support these two most vital publications?

UKIP: More Derek Clark

We have already written about the planned move to remove Derek 'I luv a piece of Cod' Clark as Regional Chairman. He was to face a vote of no confidence, a vote that he was not going to win.

We can confirm that the East Midlands Regional Committee has been dissolved. This was proposed by Charles Swaby, a proposal that allowed Clark to stand down and thus prevent the humiliation of being removed by his fellow UKIPPERS.

A new committee will be formed in due course. We sincerely hope that Derek Clark will not be foolish enough to seek re-election as Regional Chairman under the new committee. The East Midlands needs new blood. The last thing it needs is a stupid old man leading them further into the abyss! For more on Clark: LINK

UKIP still fails to make election breakthrough despite Farage's spin

Mr Insincere

We note that Nigel Farage still continues to claim that UKIP is surging ahead in the polls. He further claims that UKIP will have the largest number of UK MEPs in 2014. He also claims that UKIP has now replaced the Lib Dems as 'Britain's third party'. So why aren't these claims reflected in recent by-election results? If half of what Farage said were true, UKIP would now be winning seats across the length and breadth of the UK. The reality is somewhat different........

UKIP: John Ison was once accused of trying to strangle his wife

John Ison: The man behind the allegations against Nikki Sinclaire - all with a little help from Nigel Farage

There has been much discussion on various forums and within UKIP's leadership cabal recently, about the antics of John Ison. Particularly, his appearance in court in August 2003 to answer charges of assaulting his wife.

In fact, a look at the court records reveals that he was actually accused of trying to strangle his wife.

Although cleared due to "lack of corroborative evidence" Ison admitted striking his wife on the nose. She also suffered a bruised right leg and right arm and was signed off work by her doctor.

In his defence, Ison claimed that he was actually the victim himself, and that his wife tried to strike him first.

In fact, there may be a hint of truth in this, as we can reveal that Ison was an abused husband. In 2002 he was the victim of an assault by his wife, being punched in the face as he was driving his car. A solicitor's letter to this effect was produced during his 2003 court case.

The fact, however, that Ison was banned by court order from going near his own children hints at a sad domestic situation in which violence was all to common.

It is said that all political careers end in failure. With the disclosure of Ison's past, it would appear that his has ended before it got off the ground!
