Hi,
minded that during the period in question ALL Ukip MEPs accounts were under the direct scrutiny of Nigel Farage’s directly appointed staff and the details known of the dishonesty of sometime Ukip appointee staff member John Ison I am of the informed belief that in reality there is no case to answer for Nikki Sinclaire who has seemingly been set up!
It is also proven public knowledge that senior members of Farage’s leadership team have frequently lied about Nikki Sinclaire and Nigel Farage and Ukip have more than once been found guilty of af abuse of Nikki Sinclaire, whilst one time Ukip deputy leader and MEP Mike Nattrass acted on uncorroborated information supplied by the liar John Ison who worked in collusion with Nigel Farage’s sewer rat Mark Croucher!
That all three members of Nikki Ainclaire’s staff who were arrested originally based on the false premise of acting to money launder for Nikki Sinclaire were released with no case to answer despite their names being made public, yet no public appology was made by the police.
Further the false claim of money laundering accounted for around half of the police allegations.
Further the EU whom the police belatedly claim were defrauded by Sinclaire has made no complaint and seemingly has provided no evidence to support the West Midland’s police claims which it took them 29 months to construct.
It is also a matter of public record that Nikki Sinclaire’s auditted accounts show that she has paid in in cash, of her own money, to do her job and carry out her political campaigning during the period in question in very substantial excess of the sums she is, in my opinion, falsely accused of stealing!
Knowing thwe willingness of Ukip’s leade4rship team to lie to satiate their personal ambitions and personal enrichment and also their proven association with certain police officers that are believed to be corrupt I incline to believe that this entire case is a tissue of lies – that is not to say that she will not be found guilty and even spend time in prison.
Such an outcome would not surprise in our country where democracy is dead viz the fact that only 4% of the electorate have had a say in the possible destruction of these United Kingdoms and in a desperate attempt and without any democratic debate both Labour & Tory leaders have made promises to buy the result of Scotland’s independence vote. without ANY Parliamentary debate or mandate!
We are, as the last Government constantly claimed, living in a post democratic era – clearly one in which the occupying forces of the supra national state have an utterly corrupt police force which has never brought to justice on a murder charge one of its own who has chosen to slaughter a citizen on the street with lethal force in direct contrtavention of British law which prohibits a death penalty for ANY crime.
Further let us remember that irrefutable fact that the police have proved they are prepared to liue to defend their own criminal members and select which crimes they will or will not prosecute viz Rotheram police failure to defend children from industrial level sexual abuse known to them in their capacity as ‘Law Enforcement’ a term the modern police  bring shame upon – just as Bailiffs act outside of the law to steal goods, often far in excess of the value of any debt claimed!
I do not believe that the alleged case against Nikki Sinclaire has any more validity than the pack of lies presented regarding Jasna Badzak and that the case is just as corrupt as were the lies and allegations regarding me made by Ukip MEP Gerard Batten and his police puppets – one wonders if Batten also abused his position to make enquiries with Interpol to further his lies regarding me as he did regarding Jasna Badzak!
It would seem a great evil stalks the body politic and its name is Ukip who IF they ever reached any real position of authority could, based upon their track record, be expectedf to abuse that authority and participate in industrial level corruption and obscene levels of abuse and bullying using their dishonestly obtained office for personal gain!
I believe that Nikki Sinclaire is and has consistently been abused by Ukip and is innocent of any charge of deliberate instances of fraud – misrepresented by the police as ‘Money Laundering’ to make the offence seem greater – ‘Money Laundering’ is an offence specifically designed to deal with drug and terrorist processing of cash and also the proceeds of major criminals.
It is clear that the police claims are dressed up to make them seem greater than they actually might have been had they ever occurred and IF they occurred there would seem to be no connection with Nikki Sinclaire but much to do with the original crimes Nikki Sinclaire personally reported to the police long before her arrest! Crimes that would have proved to be embarrassing to Ukip and the Farage leadership team!

Former MEP Nikki Sinclaire appears in court on fraud charges

Former MEP Nikki Sinclaire appears in court on fraud charges

First published 09:21 Wednesday 17 September 2014 in News by Gema Bate

A FORMER West Midlands MEP will appear before magistrates today (Wednesday, September 17) accused of money laundering offences after an inquiry into her expense claims.

Nikki Sinclaire, who lost her seat in the European Parliament earlier this year, also faces an allegation of committing misconduct in a public office.

Sinclaire was charged in July this year after a long-running inquiry by West Midlands Police and the European Anti-Fraud Office.

Two of the three charges against Sinclaire, brought under the Proceeds of Crime Act, allege that she converted criminal property between October 2009 and December 2010.

Prosecutors further allege that Sinclaire committed misconduct between October 2009 and July 2010 “in that she made or caused to be made” false and dishonest claims for travelling expenses.

Sinclaire lost her seat as an MEP for the West Midlands in last May’s European elections after leaving Ukip and standing for the We Demand a Referendum Now party.

The 45-year-old, who lives in Shirley, near Solihull, has described the allegations as “ludicrous and unfounded”.

In a statement issued in July, Sinclaire said: “I strongly refute these charges and will be firmly defending myself.”

Former Castle Point MP Bob Spink back with UKIP

First published Wednesday 10 September 2014 in News

FORMER Canvey MP Bob Spink has rejoined Ukip.

Mr Spink said “the time was right” to rejoin the party, although he said he had no plans to stand in an election.

He said: “Ukip is a completely different animal from what existed in 2008 when it was pulling 1.8 per cent of the vote.”

Mr Spink was elected as Conservative MP for Castle Point in 1992 before he lost his seat in 1997, and regained it in 2001. He defected to Ukip in 2008.

He lost his seat again in the 2010 elections to Conservative Rebecca Harris.

One is forced to wonder if Douglas Carswell will also prove a fair weather friend having it seems quit the Tories in a fit of pique at being allocated a room for the confernce some.distance from the conference hotel, rather clearly showing his status within the Tories!
I believe he will challenge Farage for the leadership of Ukip sponsored by Stuart Wheeler and have his election campaign funded also, challenging Farage in his personal fiefdom may prove to leave blood on the carpet under which so much has been swept over the years!

Hi,

some twenty of the country’s leading economists and economic commentators have backed calls for an In/Out referendum on the subject of Britain’s relationship with the EU.
In default of honourable patriotic leadership, in these United kingdoms, willing to restore the supremacy of the peoples over Westminster as the authority in Britain and restore respect for our borders and British Justice under British law in respect of our Monarch.
The peoples of Britain deserve to have their voices heard, in a free, fair and informed referendum equally funded in respect of democracy voting on Britain’s membership of the EU, which is long overdue.
The informed signatories of the letter, published in the Daily Telegraph, added that Britain had nothing to fear from leaving the EU, an argument self evident in the light of the damage to our industry economy and democracy that membership of the EU has proved to be, as warned of by Enoch Powell 25-Feb-1970 CLICK HERE whilst Edward Heath and his Government betrayed the peoples of Britain based on their lies, misrepresentation and Government funded spin and propaganda promoted by a largely subservient press..

The letter below was released to mark the launch of Economists for Britain, which under the leadership of Dr Ruth Lea, aims to provide an intellectual sounding board for the research.

The text of the letter follows:

Dear Sirs,

As economists and economic commentators we are writing to add our voices to the growing demands for a new relationship between Britain and the European Union and to express our support for an In/Out referendum.

For too long the debate over Britain’s EU membership has been characterised by half-truths and outright fabrications. The wholly misleading claim that millions of jobs would be lost if the UK were to leave the EU has been comprehensively disproven and refuted.

Research shows that British business wants and needs a substantial change in our relationship with the EU. The Prime Minister’s own Red Tape Task Force has warned that EU red tape is holding back job creation and business expansion. However, before thinking about leaving the EU, we must see if the British Government can first secure better terms of membership. But if the negotiations do not deliver, there is nothing to fear from leaving.

The UK’s future prosperity increasingly depends on its ability to trade with the whole world, not just its European neighbours. In 1980 the EU accounted for over 30 per cent of world GDP, today that figure is less than 19 per cent. The share of UK exports to the rest of the EU has fallen by 10 per cent in the last ten years alone. We need to move beyond a 20th Century economic mind set and be free to develop our links with the rising economies outside Europe.

Just as “little Englanders” are wrong to argue for protectionism, so too are “little Europeans” who only focus on Britain’s trade with its next-door neighbours. We need a global vision, a vision that looks beyond the limits of Europe and sees the opportunities that the wider world offers.

Will Nigel Farage’s arrogance, hubris & corruption fail him? As he faces a leadership election in November with possible more credible challenges to his cult status, that will make Ukip’s way forward smootyher!

.

~~~~~~~~~~#########~~~~~~~~~~

Hi,
one has to wonder at this article from Nigel Farage’s puppet paper; where it seemed all too clear that Patrick O’Flynn was rewarded for his sycophantic and promotional articles, where he failed to have the integrity to tell his readers of his bias, and was rewarded, as a newcomer to Ukip, with first place on their list and a near certain placement as an MEP (EU Democracy, I think not), for his corruption as a journalist!
The question is whether Nigel Farage has given this interview in arrogance, hubris or outright contempt for Ukip members based on the fact that so much of Ukip’s internal actions and both selections and elections have been undeniably corrupt and rigged.
Nigel Farage totally dismisses tyhe fact that his leadership term ends in November and by the 15-Sep-2014 nominees for positions in the new leadership election must be put forward – no doubt Ukip have already selected who will go forward to give the impression of a democratic process, which is unlikely based on Ukip’s tarck record of corruption and dishonesty eg CLICK HERE
One also has to be aware that not only is Patrick O’Flynn positioned, and by some mooted, to return Nigel Farage’s generosity in giving him the position and income of MEP but now we have Stuart Wheeler’s protege Douglas Carswell as a likely contender as the new leader to make an amalgamation with either a split Tory party or a Tory party led by Boris Johnson, which Wheeler has mooted, bewtween the New Tories and a New Look Ukip.
Will the undeniably corrupt and self serving abuses of democratic process and the bullying and whisper campaign so common in Farage’s Party cult succeed this time or will Farager be ousted sooner than he expects?

Nigel Farage says he will lose Ukip leadership if he doesn’t win South Thanet seat

NIGEL Farage has admitted he could be ousted as Ukip leader if he doesn’t win a seat at next year’s general election.

Published: Wed, August 27, 2014

Nigel Farage says he will be ousted as leader if he doesn't win seat Nigel Farage said: “If we fail the party will pick someone better than me” [PA]
Mr Farage has been chosen as a prospective parliamentary candidate for South Thanet in Kent, the constituency he finished fourth in back in 2005.When asked on Good Morning Britain if he would quit as leader in the event of an unsuccessful election, he said: “In all of life, if you succeed you get the laurels and the champagne and if you fail you get booted out. “That applies to Ed Miliband, to David Cameron, to Nick Clegg and to me.

“If we fail next year the party will pick someone better than me. But we won’t.”

Addressing his dismal result in 2005, where he garnered just five per cent of the vote, Mr Farage said: “10 years is a long time in politics – 10 years ago people did not see the Ukip message being relevant.”

Mr Farage will now seek to win the Conservative-held seat against Craig MacKinlay, the former Ukip leader chosen to stand for the Tories, as incumbent Laura Sandys stands down.

He said he has “not one ounce of complacency”, and said that Ukip is making gains by taking votes from across the three main parties.

Ukip’s recent strong performance in Kent in this year’s European elections has made victory in the seat appear a more realistic prospect.

Across the Thanet District Council area Ukip topped the poll, with 16,492 votes, more than double the votes cast for the second-placed Tories.

Speaking to supporters last night, Mr Farage said: “We can’t for one moment afford to be complacent because we swept the board in 2013 and we swept the board here in 2014.

“We did and that was magnificent. But don’t think that the heavy artillery from the Conservative and Labour parties will not be fired on this constituency.

“They will, they will, they will try very, very hard. They don’t want Ukip breaking through into Parliament and they most certainly do not want me breaking through into Parliament.

“Somebody said I’m David Cameron’s worst nightmare. Well, that’s not good enough. I want to be Ed Miliband’s worst nightmare, too.”

 Which Idiot Exposed Ukip To This Criticism? With Nigel Farage encouraging illegal under age drinking & unclarified magic fish production!

~~~~~~~~~~#########~~~~~~~~~~

Nigel Farage is heading for government – but his Ukipper capers would be a menace to Britain

Sunday People political editor Nigel Nelson urges voters not to give Nigel Farage a crack at government

PAINS ON AN ASSPAINS ON AN ASS

Some intelligence reaches me which I might avoid sharing with my children – each generation has been brighter than the last.

Denmark has carried out the same IQ test on 18 year olds since the 1950s to check their suitability for military service.

And the Danes found IQ went up three points a decade.

Then something odd happened. Scores peaked in 1998 and are now 1.5 points lower. UK and Australian studies produced similar results.

Scientists don’t know why we’re getting dumb. And dumber. Just that we are.

Which takes me to the North Kent coast and the South Thanet constituency where I suspect Danish IQ testing would show an even sharper decline in intelligence.

That’s because Nigel Farage has been selected as Ukip parliamentary candidate there.

South Thanet voters would need the IQ of donkeys to send the Ukip leader to Westminster. And those in Clacton would be asses to allow Tory defector Douggie Carswell to remain their MP.

 

PA Farage: your having a laugh

Farage: your having a laugh

This Nigel likes that Nigel. I enjoy his company, and admire his political savvy.But Ukip MPs would be a bloody menace if David Cameron or Ed Miliband end up leading a minority government next year.

Coalition deals would have to be done, and if Ukip had any part in them it would be a deal with the devil.

Ukip is no party of government. Its manifesto looks as if Nigel wrote it on the back of one of his fag packets.

Ukip’s only answer to complex issues like terrorism, immigration, and fuel poverty is to leave the EU.

The Kippers even claim, bizarrely, that exiting Europe would put more fish in the sea.

John Chapa / Barcroft USA Ukip's pledge: more fish in British waters

Ukip’s pledge: more fish in British waters

 And then there Nigel’s own IQ to consider. He’s offering to buy a pint for the winner of the Ukip conference prize draw, a modest financial commitment.

I’ve read the small print which says the competition “is open to individuals aged 16 or over who are resident in the UK.”

But 16 year olds can only drink legally in a pub if they are bought a meal as well.

And I wouldn’t trust Britain’s economy to a man who spends five times more than he originally intended.

To view the original of this article CLICK HERE
Yes all too easily this can be shown to be the frippery of the media but the very fact that Ukip is laid open to these criticisms whether of failing to explain how their move to leave the CFP might give rise to more fish and how abrogating on Treaty Undertakings can be achieved or encouraging 16 to 18 year olds to break the law, when it comes to the national licensing laws.
How may the idiots in Ukip’s leadership team be considered suitable for any position in Governance when their entire policy seems to revolve around policies and clever weezes dreamed up on the spur of the moment and endless ill thought out band wagon jumping is no substitute for gravitas, reliability and responsible intelligent planning.
After 21 years with the core policy of Leave_The_EU neither Nigel Farage nor Ukip in general have managed to provide a credible, honourable and ethical exit and survival strategy – little wonder they lost their last representative MP at Westminster so rapidly when Bob Spink saw through the smoke and mirrors and comic behaviour of Ukip’s leadership to its core of racism, anti homosexuality and criminal corruption.
Little wonder Ukip after 21 years has but a miniscule spattering of Councillors and that includes the all but irrelevant Town & Local Councillors and absolutely no one within so much as a sniff of election in a General Election as they pin their desperate hopes on a Tory turncoat hanging onto his seat in a by election!
Like Alex Salmond in Scotland Ukip is desperately trying to enrich and empower itself without any credible structure or plan, dependent on stirring up fear and hatred amongst the least well educated and those who feel dispossessed by the relentless march of modern life and the unarguable effects of the global increase in population, communications, mobility and technology hand in hand with undeniable increases in temperature and changes of weather patterns that this planet has always been at the mercy of as our local star pulsates on what seems to be a cyclical basis over the eons!
I note today a Ukip press release written for Jill Seymour that endeavours to make much of the efforts of Staffordshire to ring fence expenditure for its cancer patients and end of life patients – yet as ever with Ukip they capitalise on criticism funded by the public purse but have, like Alex Salmond, no plan B.
For those interested in the subject of cancer care, the NHS and end of life care may I suggest you CLICK HERE for some FACTS! I suggest Jill Seymour reads this too before letting Ukip write more press releases for her!

Hi,
further to my article explaining why Clacton is so perfect a constituency for Ukip at CLICK HERE Matthew Parris clarifies the point showing just how dispossessed the electorate of Clacton are and just how this plays into the hands of those who depend on stirring up fears, hatred and failure amongst the less well educated to feed on that negative energy and dupe the people into believing that they have the answers when all they have is simple presentations and jingo bereft of vision – dreams of ephemeral transiency without substance best sold to those least able to critique or constructively analyse the lack of solid data in the glitzy sales pitch of such as Farage and his cult following in Ukip who like the YES campaigners of Alex Salmond in Scotland increasingly expose their vile bullying and abuse as their desperation for glory and greed for power becomes more transparent.

Tories should turn their backs on Clacton

The seaside town represents a Britain that’s going nowhere. The future belongs to places with more ambition and drive

At Stratford railway station in East London they’re a bit sheepish about the line to Clacton-on-Sea. Directed to platform 10a, the intending passenger easily finds platform 10; but of 10a there is no trace. It transpires that 10a is elsewhere, down a staircase at the far end of the platform. On 10a there are no train indicators and no staff. But you may just spot a “Clacton” sign on the train as it pulls in.

By the time you get to Clacton, most passengers have fled at intermediate stops. You walk almost alone through a well-kept station built for busier times, past a tidy canteen with a good range of meat pies at £1.50, and past a welcome-to-Clacton artwork constructed sweetly of glazed tiles picturing the resort. A red plastic litter-bin is prominent in the composition.

 

This is not a dirty or un-self-respecting town. Evidence of local pride and municipal effort is everywhere. The pier and the Princes Theatre struggle gamely on. On September 14 they welcome Ken Dodd and his Diamond Anniversary Happiness Show; later, Nights on Broadway with a group called the Bee Gees Story.

 

I met nothing but helpfulness there. Clacton-on-Sea is a friendly resort trying not to die, inhabited by friendly people trying not to die. Clacton is the constituency in England and Wales with the highest proportion of retired residents, almost the lowest proportion of residents aged 25-44 and the highest proportion of single elderly person households.

 

These are not wealthy retired professionals (almost 40 per cent of residents have no qualifications at all) and if you associate tattoos with youth, Clacton will surprise you. Father Time is busy with his scythe here: I counted 19 estate agents on Station Road, and you can get a three-bedroom detached bungalow for £94,995.

 

Only in Asmara after Eritrea’s bloody war have I encountered a greater proportion of citizens on crutches or in wheelchairs.

 

Shops tell you so much. Though at Burton’s they are offering “Free shoes when you buy a suit! (from £99)”, Lycra is the textile of choice and I saw not a single woman under 70 in a skirt, still less a dress. I was able to stock up on reading glasses at £1.99, and in Holland & Barrett the “Serious Mass Muscle Gainer” came in bucket-sized black plastic tubs at the checkout for the impulse purchaser. There are ten tattoo parlours and no Waterstones.

 

Enough. Don’t buy the too-easy media picture of a rancid or untended town, or of bitter people; but understand that Clacton-on-Sea is going nowhere. Its voters are going nowhere, it’s rather sad, and there’s nothing more to say. This is Britain on crutches. This is tracksuit-and-trainers Britain, tattoo-parlour Britain, all-our-yesterdays Britain.

 

So of course Ukip will do well in the by-election. Pollsters say they’ll win easily, though I found the Tories (busily repainting their constituency office) in defiant mood, and I do wonder if Douglas Carswell’s self-portrait as Man of Honour and Genius will entirely survive the campaign.

 

My aim, though, is not to deny Ukip its likelihood of victory. They make a good fit for Clacton. Somebody has to represent the static caravans and holiday villages, and the people and places that for no fault of their own are not getting where a 21st-century Britain needs to be going.

 

Nor do I deny that we Conservatives, if we tried hard enough, could get some of these voters back. There are many in a place like this who might be attracted again to the Tories by a noisy display of hostility towards immigration-and-Europe, political correctness and health-and-safety: hostility to a Britain that has forgotten the joys of Ken Dodd, meat pies, smoking in pubs and the Bee Gees.

 

No, my aim is to ask this: is that where the Conservative party wants to be? Is it where the Tories need to be if they’re to gather momentum in this century, rather than slowly lose it? Or do we need to be with the Britain that has its career prospects ahead and not behind, that can admire immigrants and want them with us, that doesn’t want to spend its days buying scratchcards and its evenings smoking in pubs, that’s amazed at all the fuss about whether gays should marry, that travels in Europe and would hesitate to let those links go?

 

I am not arguing that we should be careless of the needs of struggling people and places such as Clacton. But I am arguing — if I am honest — that we should be careless of their opinions.

 

A besetting sin of democratic politics is that party politicians, like religious evangelists, must seek clients. The weak, the unlucky, the resentful, the fearful, the old and the poor will always be the easiest to enlist as clients, for they have nowhere else to go but into the arms of politicians promising them sympathy.

 

It’s harder for politicians and priests to enlist successful people, busy people, people who want to go places, because these people are less likely to be looking for the crutches — practical or moral — that politics or religion can offer. So, often without meaning to, a political party seeking not only votes but self-affirmation is drawn towards a town called Hopeless.

 

This is the terrible, I would say fatal, mistake that the left made in the 20th century with Christian Socialism. Marxian Socialism is about success, not failure, and elevates achievement, not suffering. But the British left lost its way and ended up with the politics of victimhood, subsidy and the soup kitchen.

 

When Tory canvassers describe as “good areas” the streets where support is strong, they mean “good” in both its senses. But for Labour canvassers their good areas are the bad areas. Ukip, if it prospers, will find the same. More and more, their hopes will lie in Lycra not tweed.

 

Some of the Tory right want to drag the Conservative party the same way: to invest our political future in the disappointed, the angry, the nostalgic and the fearful. This is not a crazy strategy, because the market in pessimism is easy to capture, and easier to hold on to than the market in optimism; there will always be millions of pessimists.

 

But the truth from which the right hides is this: you cannot have both. You cannot look like a party for the resentful and still appeal to the cheerful. If you want to win Cambridge you may have to let go of Clacton.

 

From the train leaving Stratford at platform 10a, you can see Canary Wharf, humming with a sense of the possible. You must turn your back on that if you want to go to Clacton. I don’t, and the Tories shouldn’t.

To view the original article see today’s Times {Now hidden behind a paywall on the internet!}
Dr. Tim Stanley the historian who specialises in the history of America with a new book on Hollywood coming out next May has made some prescient points on Mathew Parris’ smug self satisfaction, right as he may well have been.
The academic Tim Stanley in his immaturity of genuine experience has of course over simplified and taken issue with Parris on the wording Parris presented wherein Parris talks of the people of Clacton as some sort of ‘working class’ seemingly unwilling to go that extra step and talk of the ‘dispossessed’ who have, largely due to educational failure, failed to keep up with society and its changes and technology. That this body of dispossessed may well be decent folk they are no less an easy group to bestir and are those self same people on whom Adolf Hitler built his power base just as Alex Salmond has done in Scotland and Nigel farage is currently doing south of the tartan curtain.
Irresponsibly building on the fears of these people, with no real working solution, is all too easy as Farage has shown with his endless band wagon jumping soft racism and hard core failure to provide a realistic and responsible, let alone honourable, exit and survival strategy. Being rude to those in authority has always been an easy route to the support of those who know they have no hope of ever being amongst tghat elite and it is essential that such as Alex Salmond ensures his following never get wind of his diletante interests and art collection just as despite his intake of fine wines and self indulgence in excellent restaurants Farage ensures his PR photos are of him ostensibly swilling yet another pint of beer along with the chavvery in the pub ‘fag’ in hand:

Dear Matthew Parris: if the Tories abandon the working class to Ukip, they will deserve to lose 2015

I’m writing this blog at midnight: the angry hour. The hour when you’re only awake because you’ve spotted something that infuriates you and – damn it – you have to put every furious thought down. They teach this process in anger management, apparently. Talk through what went wrong from beginning to end and maybe it’ll all make sense.

What went wrong is that Matthew Parris wrote an article for The Times. A very ugly article indeed. He took a trip to Clacton, the seat being contested in a by-election by Tory/Ukip defector Douglas Carswell, and Matthew was not impressed by what he found. He found a bit of Britain that isn’t London.

By the time you get to Clacton, most passengers have fled at intermediate stops. You walk almost alone through a well-kept station built for busier times, past a tidy canteen with a good range of meat pies at £1.50, and past a welcome-to-Clacton artwork constructed sweetly of glazed tiles picturing the resort. A red plastic litter-bin is prominent in the composition.

Yes, it sounds like Hell, Matthew. Not a Starbucks in sight – and car parking spaces that would barely fit a limousine. How our intrepid reporter coped with the natives I cannot say, although it’s quite obvious that he didn’t like them. Really, his language is shockingly rude about people who are – lest we forget – human beings.

Clacton-on-Sea is a friendly resort trying not to die, inhabited by friendly people trying not to die… These are not wealthy retired professionals (almost 40 per cent of residents have no qualifications at all) and if you associate tattoos with youth, Clacton will surprise you. Father Time is busy with his scythe here: I counted 19 estate agents on Station Road, and you can get a three-bedroom detached bungalow for £94,995. Only in Asmara after Eritrea’s bloody war have I encountered a greater proportion of citizens on crutches or in wheelchairs.

The conclusion to all this nastiness? That the Conservatives should abandon Clacton to the Neolithic Ukippers and reach out instead to aspirant urban middle-classes and hard-working immigrants (because anyone who pays less that £1 million for their house has clearly not been working very hard all their life – the peasants).

“I am not arguing,” argues Matthew, “that we should be careless of the needs of struggling people and places such as Clacton. But I am arguing — if I am honest — that we should be careless of their opinions.” So, yes, he is saying that the Tories should be careless of their needs. Because what they need is what they ask for – respect. And Mr Parris can’t bring himself to give that to tattooed simpletons on crutches.

Why am I so angry about all of this? For philosophical and personal reasons. Philosophically, I cannot see that Matthew is a democrat if he thinks national leaders should dismiss an entire class and its opinions. I cannot see that he is a patriot if he dislikes his own people so much. And I cannot see that he is a Tory if he does not feel a responsibility to serve them. After all, the essence of Toryism is to seek to assist all the people regardless of background. It is the Left traditionally that separates people by sectional interest – the desire to become “the masters now”. By contrast, the One Nation Tory tradition seeks to forge a spirit of national community that promises aspiration and compassion for all. Even Margaret Thatcher – yes, Margaret Thatcher – did that. After all, she let those working class people buy their own houses, never privatised the NHS and united the nation in liberating the Falklands. To be a Tory, at its best, is to serve. Not to dismiss and ignore. Conservatism stripped of compassion is just nasty social Darwinism.

And Matthew’s column grinds my gears on a personal level because I, too am “ordinary”. I know the kind of people he’s describing; there are a lot of them in my family. And although I may have grown up into something that could perhaps be described as “exotic”, I’ve retained a deep love of the ordinary. I love seaside towns like Clacton: the piers, the fish’n’chips, the crappy shows (more impersonators of the Bee Gees than there were Bee Gees), the fag ash, the “family tattoo emporiums”, the loud families, the tired old gramps falling asleep on the bench, beer in plastic cups and merry-go-rounds that electrically hum Black Lace classics. It might not be pretty by 5 star London standards – but it’s Britain. Those people who Matthew dismisses built this country. They have survived world wars, recessions, depressions and 16 Eurovision humiliations in a row. They are indomitable – and no Westminster bureaucrats or clever-clogs writers will ever change them. I love them. I love them because I have to as a Christian and I want to as a fellow Briton. We are family. And you don’t turn your back on family.

Matthew seems to imagine that he’s handing out sage advice to David Cameron about how to build a Tory majority, but he’s dead wrong. On the contrary, columns like this suggest to people from my background what they’ve always suspected: that Tories are laughing at them. By and large that isn’t true, but Matthew has come to represent a segment of liberal opinion that defines itself by a perceived superiority to everyone else. And if David Cameron follows that strategy at the next election, he’ll be left with just one segment of the population enthusiastically backing him: Matthew Parris.

Now it’s 12.50am and I must go back to sleep, if I can. I’m still very, very angry. I may well be so for some time.

But I do contend that Matthew Parris most clearly out maneuvers the notably light weight Tim Stanley’s all too simplistic rush to self publicity, with his regular column in The Times:

A Tory schism is now all but inevitable

Matthew Parris

 

Last updated at 12:01AM, August 30 2014

 

http://www.thetimes.co.uk/tto/opinion/columnists/article4191391.ece

 

Douglas Carswell’s defection is part of a strategy to scupper the EU referendum and take over the Conservative party

 

Never trust a man in love with his own probity. On the BBC yesterday morning Douglas Carswell made three references to himself as “honourable” within 35 seconds. “Putting my principles on the table,” he has claimed. The language should arouse immediate suspicion.

 

Ignore the weekend’s cooings about Mr Carswell: “honourable man”, “intellect”, “man of principle”, “no ordinary rebel”, etc. Just consider what he has done. Here is a politician who, to get himself elected, wrapped himself in the mantle of the Conservative party, spent years at Westminster undermining the Conservative party and now renounces his party at a moment chosen to inflict maximum injury.

 

Yet he brays about his principles while admirers gush about his intellect. Where is the principle, where is the intellectual integrity, where is the honour in this? Mr Carswell professes shock that David Cameron hopes to negotiate a European deal that can be recommended to the British people. What other kind of deal does he think a prime minister should aim for?

 

Mr Cameron never did claim that he wanted to leave the EU. But if the Conservative party has changed at all since Mr Carswell last flew its colours in 2010, it has grown more Eurosceptic, not less.

 

He is one of those characters who sometimes briefly thrives in the thin soil of Commons philosophising — a stupid person’s thinking person with a gift for making shallow oversimplifications sound wondrously deep. He will find it a sullying business being Ukip’s philosopher king to the man on the Clacton omnibus.

 

He calls himself a libertarian — and joins a party the limits of whose libertarianism would be to allow smoking in pubs (and, for all I know, bear baiting) on the grounds of personal freedom. He will tire of playing king of the kids for Ukip, and they will tire of him — as happened to Enoch Powell after his defection to the Ulster Unionists.

 

So much for the man himself. But to scorn the individual is not to trivialise the damage he can do. The damage could be immense. The campaign by the ultras on the Tory right to wreck then remake their party is well on track.

 

There is a decent chance that Mr Carswell will win his by-election and some possibility that a couple of other Conservative zealots may try to follow him. A “Ukip surge” and the momentum that could be created by a series of awful by-election results for Tories in the months before a general election could be grave. Mr Carswell’s move will hearten 30 or more Conservative MPs on the party’s right; they are with him in spirit already and are waiting for their moment. I fear that moment will come.

 

Ukip and the Tory irreconcilables are perfectly relaxed about the possibility that Mr Cameron could lose the next election; they do not want the EU referendum that would follow his victory. They want the present Tory leadership to stumble and fall, and, from the internal battle that would follow, they see the emergence of a new kind of party led by a new kind of leader from the anti-European right.

 

My fellow columnist Tim Montgomerie could not have been more wrong when he wrote in yesterday’s Times Red Box blog that “Ukip voters don’t believe that the Tory leader is serious about the referendum”. The “let’s-get-out-now” brigade in British politics have a very different fear. They fear that Mr Cameron would indeed hold his referendum and win it.

 

Accordingly they will do all they can to derail this referendum; and they know that if Mr Cameron gets his mandate in next year’s general election, this will be hard to do. They therefore aim to derail the Tory campaign, starting now.

 

It’s no good us moderates bleating that this could only lead to a Labour victory and no referendum. The right know that. And if a Labour victory (which they believe would be short-lived) is the price that has to be paid for their take-over of the Conservative party, then many would be content to pay it. Their eyes are fixed on the longer view.

 

I hope, but cannot be confident, that we can stop them. The seismology of British politics awaits a major quake. Ukip and the Tory right aim to trigger this quake. From the rubble they believe a party of the right that looks very like themselves will emerge. The more liberal and centrist Tories, they think, could make common cause with some Liberal Democrats and even Blairite Labour politicians. Their ultimate aim, then, is for Ukip and the Tories to merge under the banner of a new Conservative party.

 

This is a logical, if odious, plan. It may prove achievable. But it’s not a plan that — for all their bluster about honour and principle — the irreconcilables dare admit to. So they will continue to protest their loyalty but moan about Mr Cameron’s weaknesses, casting him — he whose personal ratings are well ahead of their party’s — as the problem and remaining ready with the sly shin kick or the sudden access of personal conscience whenever Tory fortunes seem to be rising. Mr Carswell’s “principled” resignation is part of that strategy.

 

I now see schism in the Conservative party as all but inevitable, whether in government after 2015 or out. Perhaps it will be healthy for democracy. There are plenty of nutters out there and maybe the nutters do need a party to represent them, though the slow-dawning disappointment that awaits the Tory right in the coming decades is that there will never be quite enough nutters to form a government.

 

For the rest of us Conservatives there emerges just one imperative, and Douglas Carswell’s departure should fix it in our minds. We must have nothing to do with these people. No concessions to Ukip, no more rightward creep, no fluttering of eyelashes and no dogwhistled calls for anyone to come back. These people don’t want a compromise — Mr Cameron has already thrown them too much meat — and the more you give them, the more they’ll demand.

 

Douglas Carswell’s departure is an early warning of what may be to come. So now is the moment to dig in. If a schism is coming, we moderates must draw our own battle lines. And about this there must be no question: we aren’t shifting. We, the old, battered, wary, pragmatic, often-compromised, one-nation Conservative party, are the Tories. If divorce looms we must make sure the breakaway zealots don’t get the house, the car, the company, the client list, the trademark or the brand.

 

So I finish as I started, with this message to Mr Carswell and his crew. Go to Ukip by all means. And stay there.

You may well consider reading up on my earlier take on this issue of the division of the Tories as it seems Stuart Wheeler sees it, by placing Douglas Carswell in a position to ensure Ukip is more acceptable to Tory EUrosceptics so that Boris Johnson can fracture the Tories and bring the two together distanced from the overburden of baggage brought to the union of the two parties without Farage or his ego and insecurities at CLICK HERE

Hi,

sadly this is not only all too plausible, but having been subject of Ukip lies and aware of just how dishonest, corrupt and vituperative they can be, I incline to believe the full basis of Lee Jasper‘s reporting of the facts in the case of the abuse of Jasna Badzak.

Ukip are not only unfit for purpose they are a disgrace to the body politic and as self serving and evil as the war criminals Tony Blair & his cabinet and as destructive to Britain as Alex Salmond has been for Scotland – and all in pursuit of their own vain glory and enrichment!

UKIP, the Metropolitan Police Service and high corruption .

Over the past year or so, I have found myself in the rather strange position of supporting a woman, originally a staunch Tory, who defected to UKIP and has now returned, to the Tory party fold.  

For me, a black, socialist activist, who is usually to be found defending poor people, facing institutional racism and gross injustice, this was very strange territory, indeed.

In the course our discussions it became apparent to men that Jasna appeared to be the victim of a concerted, organised smear campaign designed to completely discredited her, led by leading members of UKIP.

What makes this case so compelling is their appears to be a strong prime facie evidence, of the existence of a small cell of UKIP supporters, certainly based within the Metropolitan Police Service, maybe within the Crown Prosecution Service and the possibly the Judiciary.

I can’t say for certain what’s going on, but my long experience and professional instinct, tells me that there is something rotten at the core of this peculiar and often bizarre story.

An uncommon friendship.

BADZAK, Jasna 01Jasna Badzak is a former press officer for UKIP. She started work for Nigel Farage and Gerard Batten MEP in November 2010 and around a year ago; she was convicted of defrauding UKIP of some two thousand five hundred pounds in October 2013. Around a year ago Jasna rang me, seeking support for what she claimed, was a miscarriage of justice.

I was intrigued and decided to meet Jasna. I must confess, on one level I was definitely interested in anything that might expose UKIP, a party infested with racists. On the other hand, I was simply curious as to what an ex Ukipper and former, now returned to the fold true blue Tory, could possibly want to see me, of all people, about?

We met on a lovely spring day over coffee. Jasna, arrived, a tall woman with definite sense of fashion. We chatted and she told me a little of her background. She had fled former Yugoslavia as a refugee some 20 years ago. Her family includes Nazi holocaust victims.

She had reached out to me in desperation, hoping that I may be able to see the injustice she had suffered and help her in some way. The stress she was suffering was clearly etched in her face but what struck me was her determination and obvious strength of character. She intrigued me.

Jasna began to tell me her story and what I heard amazed me. As an experienced campaigner, in my time I’ve heard some outlandish conspiracy theories and what I heard that day, would shock me to the core.

A criminal conspiracy.

Jasna believed she was the victim of a possible criminal conspiracy to set her up, orchestrated she suspected by Gerard Batten MEP in an alliance with officers within the Metropolitan Police Service, aided by the Crown Prosecution Service and the Judiciary. I had to ask the obvious question; How is it, she didn’t know that UKIP was a racist party?

BATTEN, Gerard 11

Gerad Batten MEP 

She told me that when she joined UKIP, she assumed the accusations of racism, were just the overblown claims of a hostile press. However as the months passed she became increasingly concerned. Once she read the draft of Gerard Battens UKIPs Charter for Muslim Understanding, Dismantling Multiculturalism, a rancid and deeply disturbing document, that amongst other things, required all Muslims to be required to sign a code of conduct,

At that point she was left in no doubt about the core beliefs of UKIP and the awful truth dawned on her. From then on, she knew precisely what Gerard Batten was all about and she was rightly appalled and disgusted.

BADZAK, Jasna 02 with FARAGE

Confronted with claims of racism Farage did nothing 

Naively, she began to complain bitterly to Nigel Farage whom she assumed would share her disgust about Batten’s obvious racism. She told me that although Farage was both frustrated and apparently sympathetic, in the end, Farage did nothing.  

Jasna told me that Farage had eventually told her, that nothing could be done as he and Batten shared ‘mutually destructive information about each other’, that ultimately meant that Gerard Batten couldn’t be touched.

That would certainly explain why Farage, a politically savvy operator, has long tolerated Batten. Good sense and political expediency suggests he should have been sacked, representing as he does, a distinct and dangerous electoral liability. I suspect that Farage failed to act because he fundamentally shares Battens deeply offensive views.

As a social justice campaigner, I’ve been around long enough to know, that sometimes such claims, can be claims the product of mental health conditions such as deep delusion or depression, paranoia or conspiracy theory fanatics.

Nevertheless, I listened intently to her story and though I was very skeptical of her claims and not entirely sympathetic, given her politics, nevertheless she struck a chord with me.

What I concluded was here was a deeply damaged, credible and sincere woman, whose life has been utterly destroyed, the victim of what appeared to be false and malicious accusation and a concerted smear campaign. Her character, her demeanor and steely determination to prove her innocence and expose UKIP racism and corruption impressed me. I knew what she was taking on in seeking to challenge her perceived injustice.

Going up against UKIP, Farage, Batten and the police, was very brave thing to do. Putting aside my own political prejudice, I decided I should explore her claims further.

What she told me that day blew me away. Transcending party politics, we connected on a human level, as two people who shared a commitment to challenging injustice. Jasna experience in Yugoslavia cemented her hatred of racism and fascism. She knew first hand the dangers of allowing racism and fascism to take root. I did however had to let a wry smile slip, when she told me of her previous role on Boris Johnsons 2008 Mayoral campaign.

Despite my obvious reservations, what was absolutely crystal clear to me was there were several unexplained facts, which gave some credibility to her claims. Whilst at that stage I did not agree with some of her conclusions, I had to agree that something’s just didn’t add up.

Here I must apologies in advance of the length of this article. It’s a complex story and necessarily needs some detailed explaining, but bear with me dear reader, it’ll be worth it.

First, it’s important to understand the sequence of events that preceded and then led up to Jasna’s eventual arrest.

Background.

Ukip logo + Farage

Jasna started work for UKIP in November 2010 after defecting from the Tories. By the spring of 2011 Jasna discovered, what she describes as the ‘racist and fascist underbelly’ of UKIP. She says that UKIP was producing material she believed, constituted a criminal offense i.e. incitement to racial hatred. She was aware that Gerard Batten was meeting with European extreme right wing racists. She was also concerned at what she described as ‘ monumental EU expenses fraud’ taking place within UKIP.

Here in the UK, she became increasingly aware of Battens association with the now, all but defunct, English Defense League and British National Party. With the evidence mounting Jasna was so concerned that she made a number of official complaints to the Met, citing what she believed, were a range of potentially serious criminal offences.

In March 2011 she formally complained to the Met, that the Charter of Muslim Understanding and Dismantling Multiculturalism taken in concert with Battens association with extreme racist and fascist’s organisation, constituted a clear incitement to racial hatred.

As UKIP press officer, Jasna claims that, over time, her day-to-day work experience proved beyond any doubt that UKIP was both a ‘racist and proto fascist party’. In May that year she provided the police solid evidence that backed up her UKIP EU expenses fraud allegations. That same month she reported another leading member of UKIP for possession of child pornographic images.

Annabelle Fuller 

Finally in July 2011 she then provides a devastating witness statement that alleges that UKIP Annabelle Fuller, Nigel Farage’s personal press officer, knowingly made false allegations of sexual attack in relation to Tory MP Andrew Bridgen.

Violent intimidation.

It was then that Jasna and her family then begin to suffer direct violent intimidation. From October 2011 to November 2012 she intermittently endures a series of visits to her home, by random groups of strangers, who threatened her and her son. She believes that this was organised harassment by EDL supporters with whom Batten was meeting seeking an EDL/UKIP alliance.

She reported this intimidation to the Met and was surprised to find out that yet again these complaints were being refereed to a Detective Sargent Shaun Reardon, the very same officer who had failed to investigate her initial complaints of UKIP racism and EU fraud.

Worried about escalating violent intimidation and seeking to cope with her own failing health, Jasna then seeks a restraining order court injunction against Batten in Feb 2012.

Met officer supports UKIP.

Here’s where the begins to get interesting, MPS Detective James Galvin turns up at court, embraces Gerard Batten proceeds to tell the court that the MPS has no record of any allegations against Batten nor were there any current, active police investigation into him. That was a lie and, as the MPS has now admitted Galvin, had no authority to represent the Met or attend court. Her case was eventually dismissed as a result.

Gerard Batten, then formally wrote to the MPS on October 5th 2012 reporting his fraud allegations against Jasna. He actually wrote his allegation on UKIP letterhead, which must constitute and attempt to politically influence the investigation. The Met having failed to investigate any of Jasna serious previous allegations, then acted immediately upon receipt of Battens complaints. .

Jasna was subsequently arrested on 29th November 2011, when surprise, surprise, Detectives Constable James Galvin and Detective Sargent Shaun Reardon both, attended her home. They wanted to arrest her there and then, but she Jasna was so ill, it was decided to take her to hospital instead.

The Met formally denies the existence of two serving police officers misleading the Prime Minister David Cameron.

http://ukipvseukip.files.wordpress.com/2014/09/6f810-scotland-yard5b15d.jpg

Subsequent to her eventual arrest and charging, Jasna wrote to the Met Commissioner Bernard Hogan Howe asking, why her many complaints to the MPS had not been investigated? This was in sharp and total contrast to the Mets, swift and immediate response to Battens complaint.

This lead to another key question, why had DC Galvin had turned up at the injunction hearing, defending Batten?  

The answer, when it came, was as shocking as it was unexpected. The Mets Department of Professional Standards informed her that the Metropolitan Police Service employed no such named police officers. Shocked and alarmed she persisted and again she was told again that no such officers were employed by the Met.

She then wrote to the Independent Police Compliant Commission who after some time, wrote back, confirming, that after discussions with the Met, they too can confirm that no such officers existed.

http://ukipvseukip.files.wordpress.com/2014/09/04c98-images.jpeg?w=497&h=298

Jasna at this stage was completely frustrated and wrote to Mayor of London, Boris Johnson and Prime Minister David Cameron.Both then wrote to the Met and both were told, in writing, that no such officers worked for the Met.

Prime Minister was mislead. 

The fact is the Prime Minister, the Mayor of London and the IPCC, were mislead and possibly willfully mislead, by the Met DPS about the existence of these two officers. 

This begs they very important questions as to precise circumstances that led to two of the most senior Tory politicians in the land were provided with inaccurate and misleading information?

I then looked at the evidence against Jasna and came to conclusion that the prosecution evidence seemed incredibly flimsy. The only evidence offered was a bank statement, which Jasna is alleged to tampered with, she denied this allegation and points to the timing noted on her on line bank statement that indicated that both statements offered in evidence were printed off within one second of each other.

Evidence produced in court proved that Jasna logged on to her bank account at exactly 8:11:02 and her bank statement was printed 8:11:03 as recorded on her computer and accepted by the police. Did she really amend her own bank statement in one second?  Unlikely to say the least.

Jasna has consistently contended that she was the victim of malicious counter complaint by Batten as a result of whistle blowing about UKIP’s racism and EU expenses abuse. Further she told me that the EU always paid late and they never knew from one month to the next, when they would get paid. Batten and UKIP at that time were in the eye of a media storm focusing on the racism of their candidates. As a result UKIP were in utter disarray and an administrative shambles.

She points to this culture of incompetence and confusion by way of explanation. In short, this was an administrative error and as soon she realised she offered to pay the full amount back. This was rejected in favour of prosecution. In addition and hampering her ability to defend herself in the months prior and after her arrest Jasna was recovering from major heart surgery.

Another interesting fact was that her court date was brought forwarded, because the lead investigation Metropolitan Police Officer, Mr. Shaun Reardon’s reported that his father was near imminent death.

This change of date resulted in the case being heard by Recorder Michael Gledhill (Recorder therefore not a fully fledged Judge)

These things happen, you might say, however we were to learn later, that this Recorder had a direct connection to Gerard Batten MEP, which he failed to declare. He should have dismissed himself once he knew the detail of the case was and the identity of the defendant.

It would later transpire that Gledhill has consistently worked as an barrister alongside Gerard Batten’s best friend, the deeply homophobic and Islamaphobic Paul Diamond, on a range cases for the Christian fundamentalists extremist organisation, Christian Concern or Christian Voice, such as the seeking actions to close down the West End musical Jerry Springer: The Opera. Christian Concern is an organization that has an extremely close alliance with UKIP.

Gledhill, during this most extraordinary trial made a series of political and factually incorrect statements and seemed hell bent on securing a conviction.

During the trial, he wrongly alleged that Jasna was a serious criminal wanted in a number of EU states. This was factually incorrect and without foundation. Jasna was a person of good character, without previous convictions or even any minor civil infringements and had been in the past whilst in Yugoslavia,working for the British Foreign Office and had been in possession of highest security clearance

Gledhill, in an unprecedented outburst for a Recorder, went further and praised UKIPs Charter of Muslim Understanding and Dismantling Multiculturalism that contained proposals to ban the religions of both Islam and Judaism. He described this charter for racism as ‘perfectly reasonable documents anybody would agree with’. These deeply offensive reports were to subsequently appear on the front pages of a range of national newspapers, condemned as racist and echoing fascist politics in both tone and tenor,

This document was rightly condemned by a broad range of national newspapers and was subsequently condemned by all serious British Parliamentarians.

Gledhill also then suggested that Jasna was mentally ill and ordered a psychiatric evaluation (which subsequently proved Jasna was quite sane). With virtually no substantive evidence and under challenge from Jasna’s Counsel, Gledhill refused to dismiss the case. 

Then to Jasna’s total surprise, the very same officers who we had previously been told, did not work for the Met, DC James Galvin and DS Shaun Reardon appeared in the Court and testified against the Jasna.

At the trial they said they had no idea why we, the PM, the Mayor and the IPCC had received written confirmation that they were not serving police officers. They produced their warrant cards and Gledhill simply dismissed the matter.

After a three days trial, Gledhill began to sum up to the jury. What happened next proved to be yet another extraordinary twist in this complex tale. Gledhill’s summing up went on went for an incredible two hours, thirty minutes during which he pressed the jury to find Jasna guilty. When printed this summing up ran onto 78 pages of transcript. The jury, after being pummeled into submission by the Recorder found Jasna guilty by majority verdict after 2 days of deliberating.

0n the 7th October 2013 she was given a 1-year suspended jail sentence for 2 years and 4 months, plus an unsupervised curfew order. For a woman with no previous convictions this sentence seems excessively harsh. This gives to rise to the serious question of whether Jasna court date was actually moved to ensure that a judge sympathetic to UKIP would hear the case?

Why did Gledhill not declare a conflict of interest in this case given his strong association with Paul Diamond, Christian Concern and UKIP?

TOWLER, Gawain 05 advert

That same day as the verdict was announced, Gawain Towler, UKIP Chief Press Officers feeds inaccurate stories to Daily Telegraph and Daily Mail to further destroy Jasna now battered credibility.

In January 2014 Jasna Badzak then receives a written witness statement from UKIP insider, stating that Batten had been openly boasting, of stitching up Jasna Badzak for fraud in order to destroy her credibility, as well as reporting that Gawain was heard boasting about the coverage the story received. He is reported to have said he was pleased at the reception of the article he had actually wrote in September 2012, almost a year prior to Jasna’s conviction.

The Met finally takes action against suspected officers with links to UKIP.

During the spring of 2014 I start raising questions and highlighting the details of this case. I conducted a long radio interview with Jasna and started tweeting my concerns and my general support for her. Then in March 2014 Jasna is suddenly contacted by Superintendent David R Manning from Charing Cross police station who indicates that they are intending to now act on Jasna earlier complaints, that pre dated Battens fraud allegation and were now reopening a total of five separate UKIP investigations.

The following month both Jasna and I attend Charing Cross Police Station where we are told that the Met now plans to open a formal police investigation in conspiracy to pervert the course of Justice against DC James Galvin, DS Shaun Reardon.

Subsequently we have found out that DC James Galvin appears to be a member of UKIP and has attended UKIP rally.  His name is also on leaked BNP list as well as name of his wife
At this meeting we gave the MPS additional evidence in relation to a Detective Inspector Fleming and another officer, DC Tony Holden. We had strong witness evidence that both contacted prominent journalists threatening them with arrest if they published any negative stories about UKIP. This group of officers is now being investigated on suspicion of the harassment of journalists, perverting the Course of Justice and there may be a possibility of abuse of office by Recorder Michael Gledhill.

Met police harassment continues despite their assurances.

Then in June 2014, Jasna while at the cardiologist and attached to an ECG, Jasna receives series of emails DS Christopher Page sent to Badzak’s lawyer Atkins ordering her to surrender herself by 10 July 2014 to Charring Cross Police station to answer ‘very serious allegations’. This date also happened to be Jasna’s son’s 16th birthday adding to the family’s harassment and distress.

Later she receives a telephone call from the DS Christopher Page again demanding she come in for interview under caution for the ‘twitter harassment of Gerard Batten’. 

Jasna is then called to a meeting with the Mets, Department of Professional Standards with Inspector Fran Polllard and DS Helen Thomas. Superintendent Manning was relived and replaced by these two officers. We are told later that Manning had been moved after Bernard Hogan-Howe received direct orders from MOPAC and Boris Johnson to get to the bottom of this case.

Jasna and Atkins attend police interview under caution with DS Christopher Page.  DS Page full of himself reads MIRANDA to Badzak and then hands over to Graham Atkins A4 page note containing following statement:

 “Jasna Badzak has been harassing Gerard Batten with false newspaper stories, tweets that he stole £51k with help of Police in January, 09 May 2014 article in Sunday Times saying perverting the course of Justice, tweets about Islamophobia, lies about Batten attending 1st Counter Jihad Conference in Brussels in 2007 and talking to Lee Jasper.”

Jasna solicitor Graham Atkins stunned at the nature of the accusation asks for disclosure. Page refuses saying that is only disclosure he will get. Page asks Jasna about background to Batten’s complaint.  Refusing to be intimidated Jasna states for the record

‘UKIP is criminal fascist organization.  I stand 100 % behind that and under Article 10 of European Convention of Human Rights incorporated in British law as Human Rights Act 1998 I have a right to freedom of speech and there is nothing you can do about that.  You can also not order me to keep quiet or not to tweet.  I know you would like to silence me completely, to muzzle me but you can’t despite your telephone threat not to tweet’. 

Page then lies, saying that he never ordered Jasna not to tweet about Batten. Fortunately Jasna recorded his telephone call and tells a stunned Page that she has irrefutable evidence that he did order her not to tweet about Batten or talk to me. Page is immediately subject to an investigation

Conclusion.

In summary, I suspect that there may have been an active conspiracy involving members of UKIP, Metropolitan Police Service, possibly the judiciary to falsely criminalise and character assassinate Jasna Badzak. If true this would represent the most serious threat to the very basis of our democracy and law and order.

Should it be that UKIP members or sympathisers in statutory agencies are conspiring together to criminalise, harass and intimidate people UKIP disagree with, then this would require the most urgent intervention from the Home Secretary and the Prime Minister.

Along with the Plebgate revelations of deep systemic corruption within the MPS, this case raises the most profound concerns about the nature and accountability of the Metropolitan Police Service. If Police Officer’s are engaged in targeting moderate political activists from both the left and right, then that has to be an issue of acute concern for us all.

With evidence of the Met spying on families campaigning for justice such as the Stephen Lawrence, Sukedv Reel or Rolan Adams families to name just a few, the Plebgate incident, undercover officers having sexual relations, fathering children in the line of duty alongside rampant institutional racism and the routine abuse of stop and search powers, such allegations if proven, would be so serious as to require the resignation of the Commissioner and Deputy Mayor Stephen Greenhalgh.

We will await the outcome of the Mets internal disciplinary investigations. Such investigations have no real credibility with police investigating themselves and we believe there is strong and compelling case for IPCC to conduct an independent investigation into these matters.

The Met, The Mayor and the Lord Chancellor Office really need to answer the serious questions raised by this incredible tale. Whatever our personal politics, I think we can all agree, this case raises fundamental questions and there is a strong and compelling case to answer.

  • Nikki Sinclaire, a former UKIP MEP who left the EFD fascist group in the EU Parliament because she disagreed with sitting with fascists and has been very vocal critic of UKIP was arrested in January 2012 and charged 23 July 2014, as soon as she changed lawyer to Graham Atkins.  

    We believe that arresting officer in this case Officer DC Paul Griffiths may be a member of UKIP.

    Why Clacton Is A Perfect Target For Ukip!

    .

    Why Clacton Parliamentary constituency Is A Perfect Target For Ukip & Nigel Farage’s brand of cult like populism:

    .
    ~~~~~~~~~~#########~~~~~~~~~~
    .
    Hi,
    if you read the case study of ‘The Center for Social Justices’ on Clacton you will start to appreciate just why it is potentially the most suitable chance Ukip has of having someone (anyone) elected to Parliament – especially as Parliament becomes ever less relevant to the Governance of the once United Kingdoms – now little more than a squabbling series of regions ruled over by the malign and self serving EU.
    Ukip’s cult like style requiring little serious thought in terms of policies or any issue of gravitas much beyond jumping on any populist band wagon to garner votes from a less well educated sector of the electorate who feel challenged and out manoeuvered in the job market by waves of immigrants from the EU. An older sector of the population is attractedf under a thinly veilled racist extremism they believe will provide jobs for their children and granchildren as they complete their scratch cards and dispense with books, education and in many cases even a table to eat from.
    The stridency and name calling of Ukip’s leadership for publicity sake apeals to such an unthinking under belly of society sadly. A sector of society all too willing to blame immigrants or for that matter anyone else for the failures of their lives rather than admit their own short comings.
    It seems there are regions, or at least sufficient of the underbelly of society together with societies failure where the unrelenting chavveery, bullying and mindless centralised control appeals even though it is clear just what Ukip’s thoughts related to debate and the electorate are:
    ATKINSON, Janice 02Ukip MEP Janice Atkinson
    Ad-Van EUkipNo Substitute for leadership, gravitas and policies!
    NATTRASS, Mike 01Hardly A Party to Take Seriousl
     UKIP CHICKEN PROTEST 01Ukip Staff & MEPs expect to be taken seriously in Brussels
    EU MEP Cartoon 03
    That it is currently rumoured that the Tories will be fielding Garry Barlow a ‘celeb’ rather than a member of socie3ty of gravitas and achievement outside of entertainment and as a showman, to cash in on the populist vote of the sub economic and poorly educated majority of the electorate in Clacton is a sad reflection of the times!
    Consider this extract from the case study in question:
    ‘Clacton is the end of the line – it is not just the last station from the west but it’s also
    where a lot of troubled people end up.’
    This charity worker’s blunt description of Clacton-on-Sea epitomises the ‘rise and fall’
    image that grips many seaside towns. But walking through its main streets the sense of
    decline is not obvious – on summer afternoons the beach is busy, cafes are trading and
    children enjoy the seaside attractions. Clacton appears to be a bustling town of over
    55,000 people.
    51
    ‘It’s when you scratch below the surface that you start to see the problems Clacton has,’ said
    a businesswoman who has run a bed and breakfast near the town’s pier since the 1960s.
    ‘What has happened to Clacton is really sad, in fact it’s disgraceful. The place was so
    vibrant through the 1960s and 1970s – you would see coaches streaming in for six
    months of the year. I couldn’t walk down the pavement because the place was so busy.
    But there was no investment and the place has deteriorated, the Pier ward is now
    considered to be a place in poverty which would have been unthinkable.’
    Many see the 1980s as the point where things started to decline in Clacton. The Town and
    Country Building Society closed its head office, Butlins holiday camp shut down, and the
    emergence of foreign holidays meant a lot of Clacton’s tourists became day trippers. Since
    then, Clacton’s greatest problem has been a stagnating economy, fuelled largely by a lack of
    sustainable jobs and high levels of worklessness. As the CSJ highlighted in its
    Signed on, Written
    off
    report earlier this year, in one neighbourhood in the Pier ward, 54 per cent of people aged
    16-64 are on out-of-work benefits – the fifth highest percentage in the country. Ironically, it
    was the Pier area that had previously provided so much of the town’s employment.
    or perhaps this extract sparks your understanding of why a personality cult like Ukip is so suitable for Nigel Farage’s ambitions – especially when you consider that even the pundits seem to believe the pollsters in predicting the Tory vote will collapse and follow their local personality to return Douglas Carswell in a different guise, to suit his aims and pander to his brand of populism and showmanship – ever the drama queen but all too popular for his willingness to cock a snoot at the grown ups of politics which is such a key to Farage’s rise to infamy!
    Unlike many towns that suffer economic decline, Clacton’s population has actually been
    increasing – rising by 29 per cent over the period of 30 years between 1981 and 2011 to
    55,347.
    56
    Because property prices are considerably lower than London and other parts of
    Essex, Clacton has become an increasingly popular town to retire to. A recent survey found
    Clacton is the fifth most popular retirement coastal town in Britain, with nearly a third of
    residents claiming state pensions.
    57
    Compared to national figures, Clacton has a lower than
    average proportion of 25-44 year olds and higher than average number of people who are
    65 and over.
    58
    This has created a situation where a large proportion of the population does
    not work, leaving the local economy struggling. Although this does include some pensioners,
    43 per cent of Clacton’s 16 to 74 year olds are economically inactive.
    59
    A former employee of the regional tourist board said: ‘It is difficult for a town when much of
    its work is seasonal, but it’s a million times worse when you have large parts of the population
    that don’t work at all. A lot of people moved to Clacton from London to retire and have
    priced locals out of good property, that is a source of tension.’
    The local economy is further hindered by low pay. In 2010 the median household income
    in Clacton was £13,648,
    60
    compared to the median in England and Wales of £24,242. A
    major barrier to employment is a low skills base – 41 per cent of adults in Clacton have
    no qualifications, which is almost double the national average for England and Wales.

    work benefit
    54
    and 54 per cent of the population aged 16 and over have no qualifications.
    55
    One counsellor, who previously worked in Jaywick, said locals refer to it as ‘Beirut’ and that in
    recent years ‘it has started policing itself ’. She added: ‘The problems in Jaywick seem to be a
    lot more concentrated than the rest of Clacton. I’ve heard some fairly nasty stories. If someone
    does something bad to you, the reaction is not to call the police but to deal with it yourself. It
    almost seems like a warped version of care in the community.’

    21
    three
    Unlike many towns that suffer economic decline, Clacton’s population has actually been
    increasing – rising by 29 per cent over the period of 30 years between 1981 and 2011 to
    55,347.
    56
    Because property prices are considerably lower than London and other parts of
    Essex, Clacton has become an increasingly popular town to retire to. A recent survey found
    Clacton is the fifth most popular retirement coastal town in Britain, with nearly a third of
    residents claiming state pensions.
    57
    Compared to national figures, Clacton has a lower than
    average proportion of 25-44 year olds and higher than average number of people who are
    65 and over.
    58
    This has created a situation where a large proportion of the population does
    not work, leaving the local economy struggling. Although this does include some pensioners,
    43 per cent of Clacton’s 16 to 74 year olds are economically inactive.
    59
    A former employee of the regional tourist board said: ‘It is difficult for a town when much of
    its work is seasonal, but it’s a million times worse when you have large parts of the population
    that don’t work at all. A lot of people moved to Clacton from London to retire and have
    priced locals out of good property, that is a source of tension.’
    The local economy is further hindered by low pay. In 2010 the median household income
    in Clacton was £13,648,
    60
    compared to the median in England and Wales of £24,242. A
    major barrier to employment is a low skills base – 41 per cent of adults in Clacton have
    no qualifications, which is almost double the national average for England and Wales.
    61
    The
    number of children in Clacton passing five GCSEs at grades A*-C including English and maths
    is only 43 per cent – below the national average in England of 59 per cent.
    62
    Sue Peachey, who has lived in Clacton for 25 years, is team leader at Open Road, an addictions
    charity that has 11 centres for drug and alcohol treatment across and Essex and Suffolk.
    She said: ‘What we have seen with many clients is they have never worked, and some come
    from families where parents haven’t worked. It is a generational issue and it is difficult when
    you are trying to help someone who has never been engaged with work.
    ‘We have a very good success rate but it is not easy. I think the problems affecting the local
    area do make it more difficult to help people. There is no industry here, no jobs and that lack
    of stability makes it very complicated for people trying to move off addictions – people want
    some kind of motivation.’

    The Centre for Social Justice
    22
    Councillor Peter Halliday, Leader of Tendring District Council (TDC), said: ‘It is a fact that
    Clacton has changed significantly over the years and, in keeping with many other seaside
    towns, its economy has altered dramatically. Like other resorts we face a number of
    difficult challenges with more people choosing to go abroad for their holidays. That said,
    we still get more than one million visitors a year spending almost a million pounds a day
    in the district. One of our biggest challenges is to find ways to encourage them to return
    so that we can make the very most of that spending potential. That is still very much a
    work in progress.’
    The CSJ was told that one of the biggest social problems is that the town has a high number
    of houses in multiple occupation (HMOs). One official referred to it as ‘bedsit land’. The Essex
    town is home to a large number of bed and breakfasts, many of which have been turned into
    bedsits or other kinds of temporary accommodation. Another Pier B&B owner said: ‘Because
    there aren’t as many tourists staying overnight many of us B&B owners have started letting
    some of our rooms out to the council for emergency accommodation. It’s not what you want
    to be known for, as it is hardly going to encourage business to your B&B, but you have to pay
    the bills.’ A Government report said HMOs can have a negative social impact on areas and in
    some cases lead to crime and anti-social behaviour.
    63
    There is a forum of frontline organisations and individuals, Clacton Central Community
    First, that comes together to discuss social problems and ways of countering them. One
    forum member said: ‘One of the biggest problems is HMOs – overcrowding brings so many
    problems to a society. Clacton simply doesn’t have the resources or things in place to help
    people. Local people are doing their best to fight this, but it’s an uphill struggle and the
    council and local authority only seem to be acknowledging this now.’ Concerns have been
    expressed that HMOs can be detrimental to people’s health as well as the community. A
    report by the University of Essex’s School of Health and Human Sciences recently looked at
    the mental health of vulnerable people living in bedsits in seaside towns and found that the
    living conditions can have a significant impact on people.
    64
    Councillor Halliday said: ‘There is an HMO problem in Clacton, especially in the Pier ward
    which is in the heart of the town centre. We are tackling this by introducing new licensing
    regulations to ensure that properties must come up to a certain standard before they can
    become HMO.’
    Some officials in the town have said that there has been an increase of HMOs since the
    Tendring Night Shelter was opened in the town around four years ago. The shelter aims to
    provide support so clients can become independent. Residents, who are allowed to stay for
    28 nights, are provided with support from Tendring Mental Health Support and local charities.
    After clients of the shelter complete their stay, many move into HMOs and need continuing
    support. The shelter has drawn in some people from other parts of Essex and further afield

    who have then remained in Clacton and continued to use local services. One former shelter
    resident said: ‘The night shelter is a life saver. It offers great support, but obviously it means
    there will be more people moving from different areas to Clacton so they can get help.’
    Tracy Cooke, from Clacton, is the co-ordinator at the local Salvation Army Community
    Centre, which runs a food bank service. She said: ‘The rise in food we hand out in recent
    years has been incredible and is no longer sustainable so we are having to move to another
    delivery model so we can cope with the demand. I have been here for seven years and in
    the first two years we would have the occasional family coming in for food on referral. But
    in the last four years we have seen a major increase. Our majority client base changed from
    older people to males aged 25-45 who may be staying in bedsits or are couch surfing. In the
    last year we gave out 2,500 food parcels, which I could never have expected.’
    A frontline service provider said: ‘The picture of life in Clacton and where the town is going
    is really frightening. What has happened here is indicative of many seaside towns, but much
    more could be done. We would like to see more done with the Big Society Fund. Many
    people lack the basics for getting into work or training, like something as obvious as a fixed
    abode. More funding to social enterprises could improve the situation.’
    The TDC has said that if it was given greater powers to deliver services, the local area would
    benefit. Ian Davidson, Chief Executive of TDC, said: ‘Giving greater power and accountability
    to the districts could help solve the problems in our local areas. We are on the ground and we
    have the local knowledge and an understanding of the local agencies. If it’s done at a local level
    you can actually switch money to being less reactive and more proactive. We recently ran a
    ‘families with complex needs’ pilot and it worked very well because we could co-ordinate
    it better with the local agencies. We would like to see this delivery model used more in the
    future – it is better for the taxpayer, the community and people we want to help.’
    The local authority has agreed the town ‘is not fulfilling its potential’ and that it ‘lacks a
    distinctive quality tourism/visitor offer’.
    65
    As well as improving current facilities, the council has
    said it needs to develop new ones. It has been reported in local media that a £30 million
    development may be outlined soon.
    66
    While fresh investment in the Pier area will be widely welcomed, it is becoming clear that
    seaside towns, like Clacton, can no longer afford to rely solely on tourism and will need to
    build a more stable economy.

    The Fleet Street Fox Exposes The Flaws In Nigel Farage’s so very fragile Chicken Run!

    .

    ~~~~~~~~~~#########~~~~~~~~~~
    .
    Hi,
    having been a follower of Susie Boniface from long before her entertaining book ‘The Diaries of A Fleet Street Fox’ was published, her sarcism is all too often poking fun at the self important and those who have become a legend in their own lunchtime or in this instance in their own faux publicity drinking time and indeed she is sometimes right – sometimes in her vocabulary is self denigratory as I fing her not only right most of the time but all too frequently both prescient and predictive.
    When one considers her accuracy one is wise to remember she spent some time as a defence correspondent for the Plymouth Herald reporting in depth on The Royal Navy and its actions in The Gulf.
    Ms. Boniface’s style may be light hearted as behoves the tabloids for whom she writes but it would be foolish to dismiss her as anything but a professional in her field as is shown by this article that exposes the weakness of Nigel Farage and his cult and the bluster behind which Ukip shelters.
    Bluster which all too often not only neglects the electorate in its hedonistic self serving activities but is all too willing to be malicious and vituperative in its defence of the comforts of the gravy train on which it aims to ride, seemingly in perpituity, without any meaningful achievements to its name beyond efforts to destroy the lives of anyone who dares to expose their undeniable corruption, industrial level of fraud and persistent dishonest chavvery as with:
    ATKINSON, Janice 02Ukip MEP Janice Atkinson
     And Nigel Farage, whilst employing his wife prior to arranging for a lackey to employ her and having been publicly exposed employing at least one of his sometime sexual partners on the public purse had the temerity to dump his long term chum and cult follower Godfrey Bloom, for daring to use the soubriquet ‘Sluts’ when alluding to certain Ukip women!

    No-one expects UKIP and Nigel Farage – their chief weapon is surprise

    Reuters

    Watch out: Nigel Farage is about

    If there’s one thing Nigel Farage is good at, it’s surprising you.

    And drinking beer. If there are two things Nigel is good at, it’s surprising you and drinking beer.

    And making headlines. If there’s three things… oh, never mind.

    It is undeniably an excellent bit of summer political shenanigans to stand for Parliament and grab a defection within a week.

    On Tuesday Nigel became the official candidate in Thanet and unveiled 11 other mainly seaside, blue collar, immigrant-heavy constituencies he was targeting.

    Now Tory backbencher Douglas Carswell – the MP responsible for booting the last Speaker Michael Martin over the expenses scandal, the MP who wants proportional representation – has joined UKIP looks good for Nigel.

    It says that mainstream people like him, not just fruitcakes and that he’s jolly democratic.

    Rather than switch sides and hold on to his seat, Carswell’s done the decent thing and said there’ll be a by-election so the voters can say if they agree.

    It also says, quite loudly, that UKIP can expect a solid two months or so of “ooh, exciting, isn’t it?” political coverage at zero risk to themselves.

    If Carswell wins the by-election, hooray. And if he loses, which is very unlikely with a 12,000 majority, he gets to stand again in May.

    And meanwhile nobody will be looking too hard at Nigel, or his candidates who have a tendency to be, well, a little nutty.

    Carswell himself isn’t quite so squeaky clean, even on the expenses issue he was so keen to expose. He was found to have flipped his second home and claimed £655 for a “love seat”. He did all this despite owning a third property which he rents out.

    He has said this was “entirely justified” while also saying: “We need to clean up Westminster politics and take action to restore faith in our political system.”

    Getty

    Laugh a minute: Nigel Farage poses for photographers as he leaves his home in Kent

    But then, Nigel rather likes people who do one thing and say another. He does much the same himself.

    For example, he SAYS it’s dreadful that MPs buy second homes with taxpayer-funded mortgages, flipped them to avoid capital gains tax, “claimed expenses for duck houses, moat cleaning and poppy wreaths”.

    But his party has voted against expenses reform in the European Parliament, employ one another’s wives as their secretaries, andgenerally get the taxpayer to fork out for quite a lot.

    He SAYS he’s running a people’s army, inspiring people who do not vote to return to the ballot box to make their presence felt.

    But all the evidence shows that fewer of us are voting these days, and Nigel is not dragging more of us to the polling station.

    In May UKIP was the biggest party in the Euro elections by polling just nine per cent – NINE – of the total electorate.

    That’s not a people’s army – it’s more a rotting cadet hut.

    Cheers chums: Nigel sips a pint

    But now we have been served up a portion of Carswell and a side dish of by-election to take our minds off it.

    Nigel wins when we are entertained and stop thinking. When we listen to how he says things, rather than what he does.

    The best bit of advice I have ever had was from a friend who said: “You don’t judge people by what they say, but by what they do.”

    What Nigel says will always grab headlines and give good soundbite. Perhaps that will be enough to propel him to Westminster.

    But what he DOES is always different, and it always trips him up. If he gets within a sniff of power neither he or his party will know quite what to do with it, and I quake at the prospect of him holding summits with Vladimir Putin or Angela Merkel.

    Cleaner politics wouldn’t suit Nigel. It would mean his weaknesses were exposed, that we would have no need for the things he says, and he’d be an unemployed middle-aged man with a face like a Simpsons character.

    And like the Spanish Inquisition, he needs sinners or he ceases to exist.

    The problem with UKIP is no-one expects anything of them, so that when they do one good thing it seems amazing, and when they do lots we’ll be absolutely horrified.

    Is that the kind of surprise you want?

    How will you vote in the General Election?
