What role UKIP?

Even in an uncertain world, certain predictions can be made with a high possibility of them being correct. Thursday. May 5th, 2016, will be the likely date for the EU in/out referendum, and that will be a post-Assad era in Syria. British and American troops will be involved in Iraq, and a new settlement will develop with surprising speed. A plea from the government to trust them to protect British interests in Europe will have strong credibility against this success.
A European Monetary Fund (EMF) will be established in London, and that will be the banker of last resort for the Euro, and managed by City nominees. The Greek euro (G.E.) will be a drachma by a new name, but with its own exchange rate. To keep Greece free of Russian involvement, increasingly Greece’s GDP will be supported with NATO contributions. The Americans will not countenance a EU/Greece solution which fails to isolate Greece from Russia.
The Scots will remain more an irritant than a real economic problem. They will be told in strong language that they will not be allowed to continue sharing the pound sterling, but can now be a participant in the eurozone supported by their own deposits with the EMF.
What role in these developments will UKIP have? The prognosis is not good.
A BBC film now in the making, will be focused on Bournemouth. The average UKIP supporter will be represented by Vanessa Coleman, a former convicted criminal who managed two local brothels with a speciman  account of £640,000 pre-tax revenue for just one year. Her business talents are now being used as the local  UKIP fund-raiser. It is claimed that UKIP is both libertarian and pro-business and the BBC intends not to ignore both gifts possessed by this one member. It is to be marketed as a, ‘scripted reality show’. Karl Marx said that history always repeats itself. ‘First as tragedy and then as farce’. This scripted reality show is intended forlovers of farce, and every word will be true
Members of UKIP, many of whom among the older generation who have opposed the European project since the 1959, Stockholm Agreement, have to watch this spectacle in what could be its final chapter. The NEC are fully aware of this Ms Coleman’s involvement. Indeed, Neil Hamilton has visited Bournemouth’s UKIP headquarters and given her enthusiastic support. These whole squalid events have received the endorsement of the most senior members within the party. When Nigel Farage is privy to the concerns of many party activists, but ignores them, can he be surprised when those such Stuart Wheeler deem him the wrong man to lead UKIP’s referendum campaign?
If we do not have saboteurs from within, we certainly have twenty-four carat ignoramuses holding strategic positions. As Cromwell said; ‘I beseech them in the in the name of Christ to depart.

Mark Croucher and the curious case of the Chartered Institute of Journalists

George Bernard Shaw is attributed with the quote that, ‘England and America are one nation, but divided by a common language’.
It could be said that the National Union of Journalists (NUJ)  and t (CIOJ) is one union but divided by a common objective. The first has about has about 36,000, members and assets of some £3.3.million.The CIOJ has about 1700, members and assets in excess of £2.5.million. When a minor organisation has such assets which are the result of historic inheritance, the very nature of that organisation should be carefully examined. What control and purpose has the CIOJ?
They have an orphans fund which was established in 1891. I wonder how many orphans the NIOJ have assisted of late?
They also have a Benevolent Fund for distressed journalists. I am sure that they exist in greater numbers than orphans. They also have an anarchistic view towards the law. They want law kept out of journalism, not withstanding that their president-elect has been a frequent litigant himself.  When the courts, however, ruled against him, he ignored their judgements. That has neither ethical merit or consistency. While the CIOJ  claims to be apolitical, Mr Croucher is a political adviser to UKIP. Again, consistency appears to fall at the first fence.
Their latest crusade has been against the Privy Council. The proposal that general journalistic standards should be founded on a Royal Charter, is anathema to them. By some curious process of reasoning, they believe that such a Charter would compromise their own. That is about as valid as arguing that the Charter granted to the Open University, could challenge that of Oxford. Could they cite an example of one Royal charter compromising that of another? Is it surprising that the CIOJ are becoming subject to closer scrutiny as January 1st 2016 approaches.
Should appliances easily bought in the USA, for computer interrogation, be as equally permissible as phone tapping? There may be some evidence that some CIOJ  support such practices.
