Searchlight; a tool of UKIP and the £2.5 million . Will it be used to pay off the incoming President's court fines ?‏

Some time ago, in her predictably professional style, Barboo quoted from a previous posting by Mark Croucher, on British Democracy Forum, proclaiming his assiduous pursuit of those who are of interest to Searchlight.
He was not toiling alone, for Jim Carver was doing likewise, and they were sharing their research with ‘Unite Against Fascism’. Mr Carver is now a MEP, and it must be presumed that their work continues. They labour for the political soul of this nation, and Mr Croucher is also a political adviser to UKIP.
Let us reflect on these issues. UKIP in the European Parliament work with numerous people who would not be allowed to be members of UKIP in the United Kingdom. To complicate the matter further, on more than one occasion, the election agent for Nigel Farage MEP, has been Martyn Heale a former district organiser for the National Front. Against that situation, the pretence of being strict when it comes to extremism, is devoid of all credibility and moral content.
What fatuous political advice has Mr Farage been receiving of late! The electoral support for UKIP comes disproportionately from the older population. That group often own property which is liable to appropriation by their respective councils to pay for residential care in old age. In addition, one in four of the over- forties are in receipt of significant financial aid from their elderly parents.
Unemployment, divorce, mortgages and school fees, are some of the reasons for this continuing parental assistance. Once Nigel Farage assured the electorate that an American-style insurance scheme would be necessary for NHS  medical treatment. UKIP’s election campaign ended at that moment. It uniformly terminated all hope of significant electoral success. As one of his political advisers, can we see Mr Croucher’s rebuttal of Mr Farage’s NHS policies.
In Mr Croucher’s presidential role at the Chartered Institute of Journalists, is he anticipating a membership comprising of those journalists who are avidly right-wing, and sympathetic to the Institute’ £2.5 Million nest egg being used for those projects which he has historically been associated?  Or, to pay off his court fines with associated interest ?

A week is a very long time in politics


'A week is a long time in politics', as we were assured by Harold Wilson in the 1970's. Nigel Farage is living proof of Harold's experience. From being close to despairing only a few days ago, he is now anticipating another two decades of being UKIP's leader. What could be the reasons for this transformation?
UKIP's free lance journalist and political adviser, Mark Croucher, is poised to become the president of the Chartered Institute of Journalists (CIOJ).
Normally that would attract little attention, but this gentleman has a history of being an informer for Searchlight. A free press, while journalists are presided over by a Searchlight functionary, is a precarious balance. Caligula only suggested that he made his horse a consul: no suggestion that he made his chief jester the senior mourner in the castle.

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

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

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

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