> More Inane Comments From Sean Howlett


Howlett trying to look cool at the school disco

We have discussed previously some of Sean Howlett's unwise remarks, usually issued when he is plastered, which we understand is most of the time.

Now he has really given us a glimpse into his personality, and it is not nice.

Howlett's name was believed in the frame over allegations of sexual assault at UKIP's Annual Conference in 2012. It was certainly one of the names given to Junius by a journalist last summer. There was, unsurprisingly, a lot of drink involved.

Howlett also embarrassed the party after getting - yes, you guessed it - drunk on a river cruise. He was stupid enough to invite a female undercover reporter on the trip, where he attempted to show off, bad-mouthing Essex and its residents.

Howlett is clearly a neuseating individual, and and we expect him to hand us plenty more ammunition in the coming months.

> UKIP Fail To Turn Up For Work - Again!


Members of the European Parliament environment committee have been voting on plans to charge US, Indian and Chinese airlines a levy for every flight to or from the EU.

Up until now they've had an exemption from the Emissions Trading Scheme.

But they knew retaliation was threatened. The US Congress has already passed a resolution condemning the scheme.

The Chinese are likely to respond most harshly to the levy. Already they have frozen orders for 27 Airbus A330 aircraft, and an order for 150 more was due to be confirmed at the end of the month.

Four-thousand jobs rely directly on Airbus manufacture at Filton, and thousands more in sub-contractors across the south of England. These are high value engineering jobs, which rely on a healthy forward order book from around the world.

When it came to a decision, many on the committee argued to end the exemption, to ensure a level playing field on environmental measures.

But British Conservatives opposed the measure and had thought they had the edge.

Then they realised UKIP deputy leader Paul Nuttall was not present, and that one vote decided it.

South West Tory MEP Julie Girling furiously tweeted "UKIP empty chair at votes on aviation ETS. Lost by 1. Hundreds of thousands of jobs now at risk #useless UKIP" and posted this picture of the place at the committee table where Paul Nuttall should have been.

She later added "They talk a lot about defending British jobs and sticking up for the South West, but when it came down to it they couldn't be bothered to turn up and vote."

A UKIP spokesman later denied that was the case, saying Paul Nuttall would have voted but was mis-informed by EU officials.

"Paul Nuttall, the MEP for this committee, was not informed by the member of staff monitoring this committee, else he would have attended and voted against these punitive charges."

The party said that South East and South West members were not able to replace him.

"Both Nigel Farage and the Earl of Dartmouth are not members of this committee and so were not in possession of the timetable of votes. However had they been aware of the importance of this vote they would have attended as substitute members if Mr Nuttall had not been available.

"We will make sure we vote against this measure when it comes to plenary, unlike the Lib Dems and Labour."

> Farage & Fuller: Mike Nattrass Confirms The Relationship


Mike Nattrass has confirmed, in the Sunday Mirror, recent allegations concerning Farage and Annabelle Fuller.

Mr Nattrass’ revelations about life inside UKIP come days after Farage found himself at the centre of explosive allegations about his private life.

Former UKIP MEP Nikki Sinclaire stood up in the European Parliament on Wednesday to ask why he was paying a salary to former “mistress” Annabelle Fuller, a party aide.

Father of four Farage has denied she is his mistress but Mr Nattrass, deputy leader from 2002 to 2006, claimed the pair have been close for ten years.

He said the friendship between Farage – married to Kirsten Mehr since 1999 – and Miss Fuller was “an open secret” in the party, which is on course to top the poll in May’s Euro elections, pushing the Tories into third place.

Mr Nattrass said: “In 2004 she was my assistant – she was landed on me. I didn’t know why at the time. “She became my assistant in Brussels and Strasbourg and, frankly, she was of no use to me and I couldn’t understand why I’d got her. I complained I didn’t want her and eventually she was transferred away.”

The former chartered surveyor, 68, added: “She used to go strutting about saying, ‘I will be the next Mrs Farage’.

“Nigel has got a reputation for women anyway. She was caught sitting on his knee a number of times in the office.”

Another insider told the Mirror how Farage and second wife Kirsten were in a hotel room at a party conference when Miss Fuller knocked. Mrs Farage told the young aide “where to get off”, it was alleged.

The source said: “Kirsten wasn’t supposed to be there and Annabelle comes knocking. Kirsten opens the door and pretty much chases Annabelle away.”

Mrs Farage was asked last September about her husband’s alleged affair with Miss Fuller. She replied: “I don’t think so – ask him that.”

Farage’s friend and former UKIP MEP Godfrey Bloom, who shared a Brussels flat with him for several years, has admitted his pal was “partial to crumpet".

> UKIP Candidate To Be Charged Over Electoral Fraud


A Ukip councillor and would-be MP who is set to be charged over electoral malpractice allegations involving forged nomination papers says he will deny all wrongdoing.

Matthew Smith, who was due to contest the Great Yarmouth seat in next year's general election, will appear in court next month.

The county councillor, who is 26 and from High Street, Gorleston, is set to face seven counts of supplying a nomination paper to a returning officer knowing it to contain a forged signature and three counts of producing forged nomination papers.

The allegations relate to nomination papers for Norfolk County Council elections held in the Great Yarmouth district between March and April last year.

Today Ukip said Mr Smith had been suspended from both the Ukip group on Norfolk County Council and as a prospective parliamentary candidate.

But the councillor said he would deny all the charges and criticised the way news of the allegations had been made public.

He said: "If I am charged - and I haven't been charged yet - I will be denying all charges. I'll be pleading not guilty to everything.

"I want to issue a real cause for concern that the press was made aware of these charges before I was."

In a statement Norfolk Constabulary today said three men in total had been reported for summons. The charges were authorised by the Crown Prosecution Service.

> Vlaams Belang Want You, Nigel!


It hasn't been a good week so far for Nigel Farage's UKIP.

It will get worse, we predict. Much worse.

There has been rather a lot of negative coverage in the British press, but our attention has been brought to an interesting little snippet from the in-house newspaper of the neo-Nazi Vlaams Belang. It refers to the soon to be formed far-right group in the European Parliament.

Nigel Farage has strongly denied any interest in this project, although we are well aware of which of his MEPs and staff have been involved in the negotiations.

The final para of this little gem suggests that Marine Le Pen et al are still confident that once the elections are out of the way, and Farage faces being with a political group for UKIP to sit in, he will have a change of heart.

Remember how Farage defended Vlaams Blok when it was forced to disband due to racial offences?

Its nice to know who your friends are, Nigel!

> UKIP Bigot Says Business Should Be Able To Refuse To Serve Women Or Gays

A UKIP councillor has said businesses should be able to refuse services to women and gay people, in comments posted on an internet forum.

The Argus reported the remarks made by Lewes councillor Donna Edmunds.

She posted her views after being asked whether she supported Henley-on-Thames UKIP councillor David Silvester, who said the government's support for gay marriage had caused the recent floods.

Ms Edmunds defended her comments as "an essentially libertarian stance".

However, she later issued a statement saying she regretted the remarks.

On the forum, Ms Edmunds said she did not agree with Mr Silvester, who has been expelled by UKIP, but said business owners should be allowed to refuse services to anyone they wanted for any reason.

When The Argus asked her to clarify her statement, Ms Edmunds said it would be OK for a shop owner to refuse her based on no other fact than she was a woman, or if service was refused to a gay person.

> Sean Howlett Proves Himself A Drunken Tosser!

Sean Howlett: The Drunken Face Of UKIP

Sean Howlett, an insurance salesman or something, has always struck me as being both a silly and inconsequential little boy. He is apparently a UKIP adviser on something or another, putting him in the same league as the others who have produced what Farage refers to as 486 pages of "drivel". Best not to put that one on your c.v. when you grow up, Sean!

Now the Daily Mirror has exposed him as a puffed-up obnoxious drunken braggert. He has the sort of face that one instinctively wants to punch on point of principle, and I expect that after some of his comments, as reported, there may be a queue forming.

The picture that is painted here is not a pretty one. Paul Nuttall failing to work on his speech, a drunkard passing out on Nuttall's table, and a river cruise, consisting of sad non-entities like Howlett getting rat-arsed and mocking the vulnerable. Tim-Nice-But-Dim meets the John Tyndall Fan Club, as one journalist who was present described it to the Junius team.

Still, at least nobody was sexually assaulted this time - perhaps its hard to get it up after so much booze...!

>Money and Secrets......


Oh Dear. Even without Godders, the UKIP conference has descended into farce. It seems that the much vaunted donor Paul 'have a gay day' Sykes, has not actually given any money. (And yes, Mr Sykes, it was the UKIP press office who first put questions about your sexuality into the public domain). Junius has remained silent about this for more than a year, but now the questions are coming from the mainstream press.

As a result, Neil 'Cash for Questions' Hamilton, who was once arrested along with his wife on suspicion of rape, has thrown a bit of a wobbly.

Perhaps UKIP spokeswoman Annabelle Fuller, who has accused UKIP members of harassing her, and who also falsely accused a Tory MP of sexually assaulting her might have something to say about this? Such matters might appear to arouse her. How interesting that such filthy sexual issues crop up at the top of UKIP, again and again. Perhaps now we see the dynamic that holds them all together?

And note how Farage, who employs both Fuller and his wife at taxpayer's expense, rallied around to support Fuller's lies. We are surprised the the Latvian hooker, Liga, has never popped up as an 'employee' of Farage. Richard North might have something more to say on this matter....."I am not and was not prepared to be a bag-carrier. Nor would I fetch and carry for Farage, or write his letters, or be available to pour him into a taxi when he was so blind drunk that he could no longer stand, or cover for him when he failed to turn up for morning appointments because he had been out on the tiles all night long."

Situation normal, all fucked up, down, backwards and sideways, it would seem!
