Following Farage reveals the Ukip inner circle

This is a timely and entertaining story of a man addicted to applause, not alcohol.

By
Tim Wigmore

On the morning of 8 May Nigel Farage called a press conference at the Botany Bay Hotel on the cliffs of Kent. He was announcing his resignation as leader of the UK Independence Party. A few hours earlier he had failed to win in Thanet South, and he had repeatedly said he would resign if he did not become an MP. “I have never ever broken my word before,” he told journalists, “so I am very unlikely to start now.”

The promise lasted barely 72 hours. On the Monday after the general election, it was announced that Ukip’s National Executive Committee had unanimously rejected his resignation. In Following Farage, the journalist Owen Bennett explains what would have awaited Farage if he had made good his pledge – life as “an absent father; a big-time drinker whose friends were now on mineral water; a seven times failed parliamentary candidate”.

The book claims to focus on Farage, but it offers more valuable insights into those in his inner circle, who form a changing cast. Few will have heard of many of these, yet it is they who allow Farage to exercise the overwhelming power he does in the party. There are the multimillionaires who bankroll Ukip and are fiercely loyal to its leader. Richard Desmond hasn’t given Daily Express staff a cost-of-living pay rise for seven years, but donated £1m to Ukip. Arron Banks promised Ukip £100,000, was called a nobody by William Hague and was so pricked that he promptly gave £1m instead. Most amenable to Bennett – though that’s not saying much – is the octogenarian spread-betting tycoon Stuart Wheeler, who has a “class” and “decency” the others lack.

Then there are the loyal minions. Annabelle Fuller started working for ­Farage at 22 and became his “gatekeeper”, until an MEP used parliamentary privilege to accuse him of having an affair with her. Three months later, Fuller turned up at a party to celebrate Ukip’s victory in the European Parliament elections, claiming Farage had invited her. His wife, Kirsten, promptly demanded that she leave. Fuller, who had suffered from depression, tried to take her own life, taking an overdose and slitting her wrists. Over lunch a fortnight later, she told Bennett that she felt like “Nigel’s mother” (though she is 18 years younger than he is). One is left feeling sorry for the way she was written out of history. Farage’s first autobiography credited her “perceptiveness and goodwill”; his latest did not mention her at all.

Perhaps the most intriguing figure in the book is Ukip’s strategist Raheem Kassam, adviser on “shock and awful” tactics for the party’s election campaign. Like many in British politics, Kassam was obsessed with America, but few others derive inspiration from the Tea Party. After Farage raised the issue of migrants with HIV in the leaders’ debate on TV, he briefed journalists that the move was part of its shock-and-awe strategy. To Douglas Carswell, now Ukip’s sole MP, it was “simply awful”.

Unlike Robert Ford and Matthew Goodwin’s 2014 book, Revolt on the Right, Following Farage does not amount to a serious analysis of the causes of Ukip’s success, but nor does it claim to be. Based on Bennett’s two years of reporting on Ukip – for the Hertfordshire Mercury, the Daily Express and the Daily Mirror – it sets out to give “an idea of what it is like to report on, drink with, laugh at, and even, at times, defend the People’s Army”. In that, it succeeds: the description of the protesters at Ukip’s conference who labelled the party “racist” but couldn’t explain why is especially telling.

Not that the book is without faults. So much has been written about Farage, not least by himself, that revelations are elusive here, though we learn that he identifies as “a happy drinker, not a sad drinker” – and of an American fan who offered him cocaine and “my girl Luscious”, but was politely turned down. Perhaps reflecting the pressure in getting the work published so soon after the election defeat, Bennett occasionally slips into cliché. And some of his attempts at self-effacement feel a little overdone. Taking a selfie with Farage, Bennett berates himself for his “I’m-having-a-drink-with-the-leader-of-a-political-party-because-I’m-a-reporter-for-a-national-newspaper-so-I-must-be-very-important-and-wonderful-look-at-me-Mummy-I’m-doing-so-fucking-well-for-myself vibe”.

Still, this is a timely and entertaining story of a man addicted to applause, not alcohol. Stepping down for good would have made for a neater end, but, as Bennett concludes: “[L]eaving him in his smoke-filled office to deal with an internal power struggle of his own making is a far more appropriate way to stop following Farage.”

Asylum: the wages of ignorance

Saturday 22 August 2015

000a Telegraph-022 migrants.jpg

Any respect we ever had for The Daily Telegraph long drained away, to be replaced by a slow-burning contempt for the editors and proprietors who let a once-proud title degenerate in the way it has.

A milestone in its descent to the bottom, however, must be its latest editorial on the asylum crisis, with the accompanying authored piece by Nigel Farage which jointly and severally demonstrate the profound ignorance of the newspaper team and the Ukip leader on this issue.

Addressing first the Telegraph piece, we have the editorial note that Germany is now expected to receive 800,000 asylum seekers in 2015, describing this as part of “Europe’s migrant crisis” which, it says, “has reached astonishing proportions”.

Although not technically wrong, it is not helpful to call this a migrant crisis. We are dealing here with asylum seekers, many of whom after processing will be declared refugees. Some others will be afforded leave to remain on human rights grounds, while the others will be considered economic migrants. Some of those will be deported. Others will disappear into the population and become illegal immigrants.

Effectively, therefore, there is a refugee crisis. And within that is an exacerbating factor of economic migrants piggy-backing on the refugee flow, making two separate but linked problems. But neither of them are migrant crises as such. To define them in this way is completely to misrepresent the problems – and therefore obscure the solutions.

This, though, is the least of it, as far as the Telegraph goes, for it then goes on to assert that the arrival of these people is precipitating in Germany a greater awareness “of the desperate flaws in the way that the EU handles its utopian promise of the free movement of people”.

Such an assertion is bizarre – bizarrely wrong. The flow of asylum seekers to Germany has nothing whatsoever to do with the EU’s treaty provision of free movement of people, which applies only to citizens of the EU Member States (and EEA states), and then within the external borders.

What we are dealing with here is something completely different – in law and fact – the effect of the 1951 Geneva Convention on Refugees, and the 1967 Protocol, together with the adoption of its provisions in the EU’s Charter of Fundamental Rights, which also makes asylum seeking a human right.

No sensible or knowledgeable writer could possibly consider an information piece without mentioning this. But then this is the Telegraph, whose task in life seems to be to misinform its readers and parade its own ignorance.

Free movement, it asserts, “seemed attractive and logical during the Cold War, when western Europe was more isolated from the world’s poor by the Iron Curtain”. It then tells us: “But in the 21st century, poverty and war have driven millions to seek a new life within an expanded EU”.

The irrelevance of this is obvious – “free movement” isn’t the problem. Except the Telegraph says it is. Then building on its error, it declares: “The problem has been exacerbated by two policies. One is the Dublin Convention which states that the responsibility for asylum seekers lies with the country in which they first arrive”.

As a small aside, the Dublin Convention ceased to be in 2003 – to be replaced by the Dublin Regulations. But the problem, the newspaper argues, is that in recent years those countries have been Italy, Hungary and Greece – and they have simply been overwhelmed.

But this is an over-simplification to the point of distortion. One of the first receiving countries was Spain, which has evaded its international obligations by building fences and virtual barriers, then to divert the flow elsewhere. As Greece, then Bulgaria and now Hungary follow suit, EU asylum policy has become a grotesque game of “pass the parcel”, with Italy, Malta and Greece ending up having to deal with the bulk of asylum seekers.

What then happens is that these countries are failing to fulfil their EU responsibilities. Instead of registering and processing the incomers – and deporting those who do not qualify as refugees – they are allowing them to pass on to other member states – and especially Germany and Sweden, where they are applying for asylum de novo.

The Telegraph claims that, in so doing, the receiving countries are exploiting “the second flaw in the EU’s approach: the Schengen Agreement, which commits its signatories to passport-free movement across borders”.

Italy, Hungary and Greece, we are told, have been permitting, or even quietly inviting, their asylum seekers to relocate to other countries. Enormous numbers have gone to Germany. The Germans have embraced refugees as atonement for the sins of the Second World War. But 800,000 is a figure to trouble even the most bleeding-heart liberal.

Once again, this is completely to misunderstand the nature of the problem for, even before Schengen, border controls had been removed. Were they to be reinstated, all that would happen is that – as we’ve already pointed out, those seeking recognition of their refugee status would simply apply for asylum at the border posts. Schengen is a complete red herring.

Needless to say, the Telegraph isn’t alone in getting things wrong. Politicians throughout the continent are failing to understand the effects of their own policies, but somehow one expects more from a pompous “know-it-all” newspaper which holds itself up as the authority on such matters.

Its pomposity knows now bounds, where it grandly but wrongly declares that the “EU essentially exists to regulate a free market”. Is failings, it asserts, “mock the grand claims that it makes for itself – betraying a reality of incompetence and, where it leads to humanitarian crisis, such as in the Mediterranean, moral failure”. But in this case, the ignorant speaks unto the incompetent, when the paper completely misdiagnoses the problem and ends up telling us: “The EU needs to get its borders in order”.

With the display of such ignorance, it is only fitting that it should then go on to give space to the malign bigotry of Mr Farage, who seems determined to drag us down to his level, and wreck any chances of winning the EU referendum, by declaring that “immigration” will be the defining issue of this EU referendum campaign.

There is no excuse for this quite deliberate elision of immigration and asylum – two entirely separate issues, with their own bodies of law and policy domains.

Alarmingly though. Farage is picking up on an Ipsos Mori poll which has half of the public identifying “immigration” as one of the biggest issues facing the UK. This is something which the polling company itself should not have recorded, as it too is mixing up disparate issues.

Needless to say, Farage exploits the confusion, as he has always done, associating the flood of asylum seekers and would be refugees with the European Union “open border” policy.

Despite the fact that refugees account merely for five percent of entrants to this country in any one year, we have the Ukip leader milk the publicity, building this entirely separate issue into one singularity – all under the heading of “immigration”. Thus he says:

We see the chaos in Calais, where thousands of migrants are risking their lives to get from France to Britain; we see refugees in their thousands risking life and limb as they cross the Mediterranean on ships sailing from Libya. And we see that the issue of open borders and mass immigration is no longer simply an issue of social problems and the impact on British workers, it is fast becoming one of national security.

To resolve this, the fool declares that the British people “want an Australian-style immigration policy that allocates work permits to those our economy needs, that says no to those whose skills we do not need, and that gives an emphatic denial of entry to those we have any suspicion want to do us harm” – as if that would have the slightest effect on the flow of asylum seekers.

Matching the Telegraph for its ignorance, he then writes of witnessing “the failed policy of the EU’s open borders, supported by the establishment politicians to the detriment of our nation”. When the referendum comes, Farage concludes, the British people will finally have their chance to reject these open borders by saying “no” to the European Union.

But all Farage is doing is holding us hostage to fortune. Despite his own manifest ignorance on the subject – and despite the lacklustre performance of the Telegraph, in the two years to the referendum, there is plenty of time for people to learn of the real issues behind the asylum crisis.

The danger for us is that they will turn against the likes of Farage, offering false nostrums and exploiting the misery of others for his own political ends. Elsewhere we have written of the hazards of promoting misinformation, citing Gene Sharp, who tells is: “Claims and reporting should always be strictly factual. Exaggerations and unfounded claims will undermine the credibility of the resistance”.

This is a lesson Farage is incapable of learning – and doubtless one of the reasons why he is such a failure as a politician. But there is no reason why we should let his ignorance drag us down.

Below is the Telegraph article in full – showing just how self serving and lightweight the populism of the article is and just how misleading and lacking in solution such an approach can be when personal ambition and ego get in the way of competent journalism in what was once respected as a serious newspaper!

Clearly when Britain leaves the EU rthere will be little or no change to our border controls if we hope to continue trading with EU partners and the rest of the world. We must remember that in a fragile balance we, like every other nation on this planet, enter into grown up arrangements with eachother that have little or nothing to do with the EU who merely re-write them in the jargon of the ENARCHS and pass them on to the vassal states of the EU. The laws themselves are made by world bodies like the UN, WTO, CODEX, Davos and a raft more.

It is unsurprising that people have lost sight of this and rather childishly believe when we leave the EU all our ills will be solved but what is more concerning is that supposedly responsible newspapers are willing to pander to this populist and extrermely irresponsible myth!

One reason the media may well be peddling this level of misunderstanding may well be in a venal self interest to apease advertisers or in the likes of the BBC to apease their benefactors in the EU who provide them with free studios and journalistic access with the jam on their bread and butter provided by multi Million Pound loans to featherbed their grossly over generous incomes and lack of real imvestigative journalism beyond the knickers, vicars and the odd bent political or police figure level! grants they receive.

Another great snag is the fact that the halls of academe are seeded with many 100s of so called ‘Erasmus’ professorships and student scholarships all in real terms funded from the propaganda budget of the EU. It is from amongst these EU funded organisations that much of the spin is provided, not least by quotes supplied to businessmen by their EU employers and founded on little more than the dirst aim to keep the entire, largely failed, EU project staggering forward – Let the Greeks or for that matter the Portuguese, Irish, Italians and Spaniards, or even in rare moments of honesty, the French tell you of the success of the EU economic policy and membership of the EUro which is crippling EUrope as it slithers forward on a bed of lies, bribes and bullying!

In very simple terms the EU is not even prepared to admit the fact that all are aware of Greece will NEVER be able to pay off its current debts let alone interest and essential future borrowing their GDP can not and never will sustain such debts. When you consider the levels of dishonesty that have created this misery is it any wonder that politicians working in that system will say almost anything to hang onto their grossly inflated incomes, bribes and expenses – as you will note in the Telegraph article below!

The EU will have to control its borders

Telegraph View: The arrival of 800,000 asylum seekers in Germany makes a mockery of the EU’s immigration policies. Free movement without passports will,

Free movement seemed attractive and logical during the Cold War, when western Europe was more isolated from the world’s poor by the Iron Curtain. But in the 21st century, poverty and war have driven millions to seek a new life within an expanded EU. The problem has been exacerbated by two policies. One is the Dublin Convention which states that the responsibility for asylum seekers lies with the country in which they first arrive. In recent years those countries have been Italy, Hungary and Greece – and they have simply been overwhelmed.

To alleviate this problem they have exploited the second flaw in the EU’s approach: the Schengen Agreement, which commits its signatories to passport-free movement across borders. Italy, Hungary and Greece have been permitting, or even quietly inviting, their asylum seekers to relocate to other countries. Enormous numbers have gone to Germany. The Germans have embraced refugees as atonement for the sins of the Second World War. But 800,000 is a figure to trouble even the most bleeding-heart liberal.

German politicians have called for greater integration of asylum policy across the EU, including higher refugee quotas among all members, though how that would work with open borders is a mystery. Some regional officials have called for controls between nations to be reinstated. France and Austria have tried closing their borders with Italy, sending those without the right papers back. In Calais, after weeks of chaos, a deal has been signed between the French and the British to deal with a sometimes violent crisis. Thomas de Maizière, Germany’s interior minister, has acknowledged that the very principle of free movement is suddenly up for debate. “We want free movement of people,” he said, “but… the question is what does free movement of people mean in Europe?”

The answer is probably that free movement will remain for citizens of the EU but that there will have to be a much tighter enforcement for anyone who falls outside of that definition. This belies the EU’s self-image as a liberal, internationalist project. In reality, it is protectionist and will probably have to engage in the variety of conservative policies normally associated with Australia. There does need to be an aggressive crackdown on people smuggling. Asylum applications ought to be lodged and processed in countries outside of Europe. And those seeking asylum from within the EU will have to be swiftly deported if their claim is rejected.

The EU essentially exists to regulate a free market. At Calais it has failed: the free movement of people has been stymied by the migrant crisis. In Germany, poor control of the continental border has led to a population explosion that may prove grist to the mill of extremist parties who want to destroy the EU altogether. In other words, the failings of the EU mock the grand claims that it makes for itself – betraying a reality of incompetence and, where it leads to humanitarian crisis, such as in the Mediterranean, moral failure. The EU needs to get its borders in order.

With an avg. 1.2M voters per MEP & Britain having only 8%, if united, say. The EUropean Parliament has no ability to make policy and has a Commission of unelected bureaucrats, thus clearly the EU is not even a pretence of being a democracy; yet it is willing to slaughter people in Sovereign States to impose democracy on them!
The imposition of a Government and policies upon its vassal regions such as the peoples of Greece shows just how far from being a democracy the EU is.There will be little or no change in Britain’s economic position, when we leave the EU and by then being a part of the Eropean Economic Area all will benefit, as we secure trade relations with the EU vassal regions and can trade and negotiate independently on a global stage.
One huge benefit will be that we can negotiate with bodies like the WTO, UN, WHO, IMF, CODEX and the like, directly in our own interest and that of our partners around the world in both the Commonwealth and the Anglosphere at large; rather than having negotiations and term imposed by unelected EU bureacrats.
The greatest change and benefit will be political, as we improve our democracy and self determination, with the ability to deselect and elect our own Government, which with an improved Westminster structure, see >Harrogate Agenda<.
How we go about the process of disentangling our future well being from the EU is laid out in extensive, well researched and immensly tedious detail see >FleXcit< or for a brief video summary CLICK HERE

MERCHANT, Piers 21-Sept-2009 – IN MEMORIAM

Posted by Greg Lance - Watkins (Greg_L-W) on 04/08/2015

21-Sept IN MEMORIAM Piers MERCHANT – SIX YEARS ON!

———————————————-

———————————————–

Piers Merchant

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search

Piers Rolf Garfield Merchant
(born: 2 January 1951) & (died: 21 September 2009)
aged 58

Piers Merchant was a politician in the United Kingdom.
He was Conservative Member of Parliament (MP) for Beckenham, but resigned in October 1997.

Before he became an MP he was a journalist and marketing officer.

Merchant was educated at Nottingham High School and the University of Durham where he was Senior Man of University College’s JCR. He was first elected to the House of Commons at the 1983 general election, for the Newcastle Central constituency, he lost the seat at the June 1987 general election. He stood for Beckenham at the 1992 general election and won.

MPs cannot technically resign; instead he took the offices of Steward of the Manor of Northstead, which automatically led to his disqualification.

In the 2004 European Parliament election, Merchant stood for the UK Independence Party in the North East England constituency, at the top of their party list. He was not elected.

Piers Merchant worked for some years, in various capacities, for UKIP, having been at one time political advisor to Roger Knapman the UKIP leader during their sucessful 2004 election and also for a short time acted as UKIP General Secretary until a suitable individual could be found full time.

In 2005, Merchant relocated to Great Torrington in North Devon. Merchant is also a member of Mensa.

News
 
It is with regret that I inform you that in early July 2009 Piers was diagnosed as having advanced multi site metastatic cancer, the prognosis being bleak. His wife Helen supported by their two children is with him at this time. (07-Jul-09)

It is with regret that I inform you that on 21-Sep-2009 Piers Merchant died after a short terminal illness. The cause of death was multi site metastatic cancer.

Piers Merchant leaves his wife Helen and their daughter and teenage son. Piers had faced his illness with courage, supported by his family, and leaves many friends and colleagues, Piers’ brother will find it particularly hard as their Mother had died only a matter of a few months ago after a brief terminal illness, though at a much more acceptable age.

The EUroRealist movement has lost an indefatiguable campaigner and a well informed advocate, whose contribution in UKIP has been immense. He will be remembered with affection by his many colleagues in UKIP and before that from his days as a Conservative MP and before.

It is sad that his colleagues in UKIP did so little to defend his name when he was lied about and defamed by Mark Croucher, Douglas Denny and others who claimed he had betrayed the party by being Junius when clearly he was not nor ever wrote as part of that team as proven when he died. There were even lies put forward that he had tampered with UKIP web site to send copies of eMails to him for publication on Junius.

This was clearly all too typical of the dishonesty of UKIP’s leadership team and its odious claque of self serving low lifes.

Not ONE of UKIP’s leaders or followers spoke out in his defence, either before or after his demise!

My personal condolences to their children Alethea and Rolf and to his widow Helen Merchant (nee Burrlock) whom he married in 1977. Helen loyally stood by Piers throughout the visicitudes of a colourfull and productive life, whilst maintaining a high powered career in her own right.

Much of Piers’ life was was spent in service to British liberty and democracy, though he will be remembered by many for his colourfull private life – a life too soon lost!

Further details of his life can be found in The Telegraph if you CLICK HERE

In accord with Piers’ view of The EU –
Write Upon Your Ballot Paper at EVERY election:
LEAVE THE EU

It is terribly sad. Piers will be greatly missed by all who had the good fortune to know him, to whatever degree. My thoughts and prayers are with his family.

Ex-Ukip MEP guilty of huge fraud

A former Ukip MEP has been found guilty of fraudulently claiming almost £500,000 in European Parliament expenses.

A jury at London’s Southwark Crown Court took an hour and 42 minutes to find Ashley Mote, 79, guilty of 12 fraud-related offences and of using the gains to fund his court battles in the UK.

Mote, of Binsted, Hampshire, was found guilty of four counts of obtaining a money transfer by deception, three of false accounting, two of fraud, and one each of acquiring criminal property, concealing criminal property and theft.

The offences took place between November 2004 and July 2010.

Releasing Mote on conditional bail, Mr Justice Stuart Smith said: “He must appreciate that there is a very strong likelihood that a custodial sentence will follow.”

The judge said he was not concerned about the “relatively short time” it took the jury to reach its decisions.

He said: “I have watched you over the four weeks (of the trial) and you have been giving this close attention.”

A date for sentencing has yet to be set.

The prosecution claimed that Mote submitted numerous false claims for parliamentary assistance allowance for payment for work that organisations had carried out on his behalf.

The prosecution also claimed that he dishonestly obtained approximately 355,000 euros and £184,000 of allowances to which he was not entitled.

Between 2004, when he was elected MEP, and 2009, Mote claimed a total of £750,000 in parliamentary assistance allowance – taking into account his legitimate claims and any alleged fraudulent activity.

Mote was elected as a Ukip MEP for south east England in 2004, but shortly before he took up his seat he was thrown out of Nigel Farage’s party because he was being prosecuted by the Department for Work and Pensions for benefit fraud.

He sat as an independent MEP until 2009, when he decided not to stand for re-election.

The case would seem to have hinged on the fact that under some circumstances MEPs may utilise tax payers’ money to defend or prosecute cases related to offences commited whilst in office.

Ashley Mote was prosecuted and found guilty of benefit fraud commited prior to his election to office.

I believe Ashley mote acted on the presumption that either no case would have been called had he not been elected as a Ukip MEP, or that he was entitled to the legal defence because he was an MEP. In the belief that he would win he may have considered it only as a loan undrawn down as the Crown would be liable for costs.

There is I understand precedent for this as I gather Gerard Batten used Tax payers’ money to fund legal matters.

Having been removed from Ukip Ashley Mote was denied access to advice on the matter from the party and would seem to have dug himself an ever deeper hole with his costly appeals and lengthy Court cases. There is no doubt he is guilty of these new offences it would seem though there is a ‘rationalle’ for claiming his earlier prosecution was brought about by his political stance and position.

The claims against Nikki Sinclaire would seem to be entirely different and are seemingly without sound foundation as they would apppear to have been triggered by the self serving ambitions of John Ison and contrived evidence and claims. Were there any validity to the claims it is clear that Nikki Sinclaire was in no way the guilty party as all the claims against her were firstly technical misunderstandings and secondly during the period when, to avoid any such errors, every Ukip MEP surrendered control of their accounts, expenses and salary claims to Nigel Farage’s appointed accountant – thus Nigel Farage is directly responsible for any such errors as claimed!

There is absolutely no claim made against Nikki Sinclaire brought by the Police or CPS subsequent to her having left Ukip and it is an auditted fact that she paid from her own personal income and savings into her campaigning against EU membership and other constituency duties at least 4 or 5 times the amount she is claimed to have falsely drawn whilst Ukip controlled her accounts.

The Ashley Mote case has more in common with that of Tom Wise, who was sentenced to 2 years in prison, though he only served a few months! Tom Wise had embezzelled money from the EU, aided by the signatures of Lindsay Jenkins as you will recal from the facts provided on this blog at the time. Interestimngly at no time was Tom Wise either suspended from or thrown out of Ukip and was allowed to serve his full term as an MEP a Ukip member.

Tom Wise was vigerously defended and his criminal activity was strenuously denied by Ukip senior officials, dishonest individuals such as Douglas Denny, Mick McGough, Mike Nattrass, Mark Croucher, Anthony Butcher and many naiive members, also the duplicitous Roger Helmer who you may well recal was also featured in the video sting carried out by TNOTW!

The dishonest claiming of expenses and false accounting of Ukip senior officials is clearly endemic starting at the top with the then leader Jeffrey Tittford having been ordered to repay EU money he had falsely claimed and used, followed by Nigel Farage in similar circumstances not to mention setting up off shore accounts to benefit from tax breaks with an Isle of Man account to which he deposited 100s of £1,000, or the misappropriation of 10s of £1,000s of pounds by Derek Clark who though he was never prosecuted, unlike Tom Wise, he was ordered to repay to the EU.

Then of course the leader Malcolm Lord Pearson besides being exposed as an unashamed anti Islamic racist was shown on film by The Sunday Times as having colluded with Nigel Farage to lainder money from donors via his company Global Britain at the same time that he was colluding with Stuart Agnew in seeking to obfuscate donations! Stuart Agnew also made it clear that he and David Bannerman were fiddling their expenses to pay the salaries of inappropriate staff!

There is also the matter of Ukip’s abject failure to responsibly, honestly or transparently present accounts for the Ashford scam, described by Nigel Farage as the most profitable organisation Ukip had ever had to make money! There was also the matter of laundering credit card payments through Graham Booth’s motel in Torquay and let us not forget that when OLAF investigated Graham Booth they ordered repayment of other funds claimed and failed to exhonourate Mike Nattrass subsequent to their investigation of his activities. Though Derek Clark was found guilty by OLAF and we understand his file was passed to the British Police who it seems took no action, as with Stuart Agnew, Malcolm Pearson, David Bannerman and no doubt others!

One wonders why, with so much sound evidence, the police have taken no action against these individuals yet have seemingly trumped up a case against Nikki Sinclaire based upon the most febrile of claims, which are easily dismissed and over such a small amount of money, when 100s of £1,000s of claims against Ukip have been ignored!

Then of course there is Ukip’s blatant dishonesty and disregard for British Courts and the undeniable fact that they are indebted to me for some £13,500 and interest over some half a dozen years which they have failed to pay, and the fact that Nigel Farage’s grubby little sewer rat Mark Croucher flagrantly ignores his debts as ordered by the Courts.

Some may remember the dubious funding of Mark Croucher’s two pubs, which he claimed were funded by Ukip/Nigel Farage as ‘hush money’ – naturally with Mark Croucher running them both failed, though he tried to blame everything but his own incompetence and lack of ability!

I understand Ukip finances are currently under legal scrutiny, particularly as to the recent General Election and it is a well publicised fact that Ukip are currently on the verge of bankruptcy and as yet it is unclear whether they paid their due election debts on the 05-Jul-2015 as legally required!

Then of course worthy of note is that Nigel Farage has been questioned regarding the allegations made by Annabelle Fuller when she stole Andrew Bridgen’s Blackberry, House of Commons Pass & confidential correspondence the file related to her criminality has been passed to the CPS and it is a matter of speculation to what extent Nigel Farage is implicated by his phone calls with her when she was involved in the crime!

Also we are still awaiting an outcome of the investigation of Janice Atkinson’s fraud whilst working for Farage when she claimed money for an event organised for Nigel Farage’s EFDD.

etc. etc. etc.

Clearly there is much more for Ukip and its staff to answer to, but let us leave it there for the moment rather than deal with other areas of criminality within their ranks!
For a slightly different ‘take’ on Ashley Mote’s trial, crimes and sentence:

Former Ukip MEP jailed over £500k expenses fraud

A former Ukip MEP who cheated almost £500,000 in European Parliament expenses has been jailed for five years.

Ashley Mote, 79, submitted bogus claims for his parliamentary allowance, which was supposed to be for work that organisations had carried out on his behalf.

He used the money to fund his court battles in the UK after he was prosecuted for a previous benefits fraud.

The politician dishonestly obtained approximately 355,000 euro and £184,000 of allowances to which he was not entitled.

Mote, of Binsted, Hampshire, was sentenced to a total of five years imprisonment at Southwark Crown Court today.

• Nigel Farage to sack Patrick O’Flynn in purge of Ukip coup plotters

Mr Justice Stuart Smith said Mote had “lied, protested, lied and lied again” during his trial.

“Your greed and dishonesty were matched only by your hypocrisy because while this was going on you carried out a high profile campaign condemning corruption and the improper use of public money in the very institution from which you were leeching it.”

He continued: “You knew perfectly well what the rules were for the claiming of expenses and you also knew perfectly well that what you were doing had nothing to do with funding whistleblowers and everything to do with funding your bridging loan, your mortgage, your legal expenses that were unrelated to your role as an MEP.

“You abused your position of trust as an elected representative and you abused the trust that the European Parliament placed in you, consistently making false statements in the knowledge that the institutions trusted their MEPs to be reliable and honest.


Ashley Mote at an earlier court appearance in April (Julian Simmonds/The Telegraph)

“Along the way you deceived people who shared your declared political ideals and even considered you to be something of a political hero.

“You are, as was said by the trial judge when you were convicted of substantial benefits fraud in 2007, a thoroughly dishonest man.

“The consistency of your dishonesty is breathtaking.”

Mr Justice Smith said: “As you came to towards the end of your time as an MEP you decided to milk what you saw as your cash cow to the limit.”

Mote was convicted at trial of four counts of obtaining a money transfer by deception, three of false accounting, two of fraud, and one each of acquiring criminal property, concealing criminal property and theft. The offences took place between November 2004 and July 2010.

Mote was allowed to sit in the back of court because of hearing problems.

Is Ukip Facing Bankruptcy Due To the Political & financial Incompetence of its Leader and his Leadership Cult?

000a ukip-025 count.png

~~~~~~~~~~#########~~~~~~~~~~
.
Hi,
I wonder can Ukip pay its debts by the due date on 06-Jul-2015 or will it face additional debts in the form of fines, which may well also go unpaid and could lead to the insolvency Courts and the winding up of Ukip – displaying yet further just how incompetent Nigel Farage and his clique are at leading his failed cult!

Let us not forget that the aim of a General Election is to win seats at Westminster NOT to get lots of unproductive votes returning ONE MP, an MP who is seemingly only a Ukip MP in name but not in spirit – a failed Tory who when he could not get a room in the Tory conference hotel and was allocated to an annex by the Whip’s Office is said to have had a temper tantrum and accepted a payment from Stuart Wheeler to fund his by-election and an undeliverable promise to be annointed Ukip leader – and quit the Tories to become a big fish in a small and largely irelevant backwater.

It would seem that it may not be sihonesty and corruption alone that means Ukip fail to pay their obligations and show contempt for the British Courts and legal system as you will recal they are still morally indebted to me for some £13,000 + interest which they have failed to pay – clearly these liars and scoundrels have trousered so much of the money the party has received they plain can;t pay their bills.

Gone are the days, it seems, when they were believed to have funded Mark Croucher’s two pubs, as hush money, as he proudly boasted at the time!

Not only it seems that they can’t pay me nor it seems can they pay £500,000 of other bills!

Ukip leaders are trying to plug a reported £500,000 hole in party finances after they “lost control” of finances in a general election spending spree.

Nigel Farage is said to have told an emergency meeting of the party’s national executive committee that Ukip would have to take a loan or be bailed out by a donor in order to pay its election-related invoices by July 6, as required by law.

Nigel Farage Quizzed By Police re His EU Funded Ukip Mistress’ Criminality

Nigel Farage, Ukip’s dictatorial leader, is Quizzed By Police re His EU Funded Ukip Mistress Annabelle Fuller’s’ Criminality.

000a ukip-025 count.png

~~~~~~~~~~#########~~~~~~~~~~
.
Hi,
in reading of the activities of Annabelle Fuller in relation to the police enquiry do be minded that it is an undenied fact that she had been drinking all day and was confirmed as having targetted the Tory MP Andrew Bridgen and returned to his flat with a mutual aquaintance, from where he is understood to have called Nigel Farage at least twice, after midnight!

Annabelle Fuller then left the flat, having stolen Andrew Bridgen’s House of Commons Pass, some confidential correspondence and his Blackberry phone device – which she subsequently boasted of.

In leaving the buildinghaving taken her shoes off she also stumbled or fell and struck her forehead causing a minor injury, which seemed to have vanished when she was at Ascot shortly after!

Annabelle Fuller was acosted and held by the building security and the police were called – the story follows on and it is a matter of record that after her allegations put forward as a defence for her theft and other actions, she subsequently withdrew the claims! It was not until considerably later, seemingly faced with an enquiry, that she announced she was mentally unstable and had later taken tablets and made an attention seeking claim of self harming!

One wonders when the police will aquit their duty and arrest and charge Annabelle Fuller and grant justice to Andrew Bridgen to clear his name of what seem to be the fantasies of Annabelle Fuller and her proudly boasted of theft – Andrew Bridgen deserves basic justice as Annabelle Fuller’s allegations were contributory to the breakdown of Bridgen’s marriage and the subsequent loss of continuous access to his children!

It would seem Nigel Farage’s apparent bluster when questioned can only muddy the water and would seem to be an irresponsible action of self defence regardless of the criminality of his sometime mistress Annabelle Fuller who has for many years been paid for  by Ukip/EU funds!

For more facts see also various other entries on this web site regarding this matter by entering Andrew Bridgen in the >SEARCH< facility heading the Right Sidebar and then enter Annabelle Fuller.

Police quiz Farage over claims his ‘ex-lover’ falsely accused Tory MP of sexually assaulting her 

  • Annabelle Fuller made a false allegation against MP Andrew Bridgen 
  • Ms Fuller wrongly claimed the married MP groped her after a night out
  • Mr Bridgen said the false allegation had wrecked his marriage to Jackie
  • Nigel Farage criticised details of his police visit entering the public arena

Nigel Farage has been interviewed by Scotland Yard over claims that his alleged ‘ex-mistress’ fabricated a sexual assault case against a Tory MP, The Mail on Sunday can reveal.

The Ukip leader was quizzed by detectives investigating whether Annabelle Fuller falsely accused Andrew Bridgen of groping her on the balcony of his flat after an evening in a Westminster pub.

Mr Farage’s police interview, conducted earlier this month, came after officers gained access to Ms Fuller’s phone records to check her account of events with people she spoke to that night.

Sources have told this newspaper the encounter between the police and Mr Farage was ‘lively’, with the politician asking forensic questions about the investigation.

‘It was debatable who was actually interviewing who,’ said one.

There is no suggestion Mr Farage was aware at any stage of any alleged wrongdoing by Ms Fuller. He was not cautioned before the interview.

When contacted last night, Mr Farage said: ‘I would expect any conversation I have had with the Metropolitan Police to be kept confidential. I am appalled that any detail has been disclosed.’

The astonishing saga started in June 2011 when Mr Bridgen, 50, was arrested after Ms Fuller claimed to have been touched inappropriately after returning to Mr Bridgen’s flat with the MP and a fellow drinker. She fled from the property in the early hours –grabbing Mr Bridgen’s BlackBerry mobile phone and Commons pass in the process – before filing her complaint.

Charges against Mr Bridgen were dropped when Ms Fuller, 33, withdrew her allegations. The MP for North West Leicestershire says the case wrecked his marriage to wife Jackie, and he now has limited contact with his children.

Ms Fuller was described as Farage’s ‘former mistress’ under parliamentary privilege last year by former Ukip MEP Nikki Sinclaire. Both Mr Farage and Ms Fuller, who until last year worked as an aide to the Ukip leader, strongly deny an affair.

Last summer, Ms Fuller said she took an overdose and tried to cut her wrists after a confrontation with Mr Farage’s wife Kirsten, at a party celebrating Ukip’s success in the European elections.

Mr Farage has faced turmoil within his party since he backed out of his pledge to resign if he failed to win Thanet South at the Election. He did stand down as leader –but for just three days.

Last week, his deputy Suzanne Evans appeared to have been dumped as a party spokesman for saying that Mr Farage was a ‘very divisive’ figure who should not lead the EU ‘Out’ campaign. A day later she was ‘un-sacked’ as she had been removed without ‘proper authority’.

Scotland Yard’s investigation into Ms Fuller was launched after Jasna Badzak, a former Ukip official, said that following the incident Ms Fuller had boasted to her of seeing messages from David Cameron on Mr Bridgen’s BlackBerry.

Last year, Ms Badzak was sent a police ‘Prevention of Harassment’ letter for talking to The Mail on Sunday, on the grounds that it led to Ms Fuller being ‘subjected to numerous phone calls and emails’.

It prompted Tory MP Zac Goldsmith to write to London Mayor Boris Johnson urging him to look at whether police officers were abusing their position by trying to stop a newspaper investigation of Ukip.

Scotland Yard said: ‘We would never comment on who we interview as part of an investigation.

‘The inquiries are ongoing.’

Mr Bridgen declined to comment.

Its Amateur Hour At Ukip, As Ever, As They Take Turns At pulling A Nigel Farage. much as did Sepp Blatter, with the same show of integrity after over 20 years ‘at it’!

When will Ukip learn? Party embroiled in new ‘unresigning’ fiasco

The former party secretary is returning after ‘pulling a Farage’
More bad news for Nigel (PA)
More bad news for Nigel (PA)

It looks like the hokey cokey over at Ukip is set to continue after Matthew Richardson, the party’s former secretary, is coming back to his role.

Richardson was one of the causalities of the post-election fallout, which saw advisers leave and front-benchers sidelined during bitter in-fighting.

But just like his boss Nigel Farage, who stayed in his post after Ukip’s national executive committee failed to accept his resignation, he is returning to his role.

Moving Ukip right

Richardson is 'pulling a Farage' (PA)
Richardson is ‘pulling a Farage’ (PA)

In a statement to the BBC they said: “Matt has resumed the role… by law any constituted political party must have a party secretary who is a qualified lawyer.”

This is surely bot going to go down well with many in the party, after Richardson – along with another adviser Raheem Kassam – was blamed for pushing Farage further to the right.

The pair were blamed for his comments about HIV treatment for immigrants, which bombed during the TV election debate, and for making Ukip like the ‘Tea-Party’ wing of the US Republican party.

‘Pulling a Farage’

The move could re-ignite the tensions between Farage and Carswell  (PA)
The move could re-ignite the tensions between Farage and Carswell (PA)

Richardson left his role, as did Kassam, at the start of the month – but while Kassam has resumed his role at website Breitbart – Richardson has reportedly still been advising Mr Farage, who was keen on having him back on board.

It is unclear how his un-resignation – known as ‘pulling a Farage’ – will go down with Ukip’s only MP Douglas Carswell, who rowed with the party secretary over whether they should accept the £650,000 a year subsidy from Parliament, referred to as ‘short money’.

Nor how the move will be received by Patrick O’Flynn and Suzanne Evans, both of whom were demoted for criticising Farage and his inner circle in the days after the election.

Raheem Kassan Critiques Nigel Farage’s Ukip Cult Whilst On A Roll! As he tries to salvage some semblance of credibility for his journalistic ambitions from his failure in fringe politics.

000a ukip-025 count.png

Hi,
it is all so very Ukip and explains for those who are not that well versed in the chaotic Ukip cult of Faragistas just why Ukip has no responsible role in governance in Britain and never should until it is totally overhauled, has a competent leader, some intellectual thinking, an honorable ethical workable EU eXit and survival strategy – and of course it must dump its one man and a fag packet shoot from the lip cult foundations in its one man band approach, where individuals of any caliber are destroyed for fear they will challenge Nigel Farage the 8 times loser in every domestic election he has ever run in – he is fast approaching the reputation of David Sutch though taking himself more seriously than Lord Sutch’s Monster Raving Loony Party!
Time and time again Nigel Farage’s chosen allies eventually see through the facade and walk away or are forced out only to become his implaccable enemies having had their trust betrayed by this little man – The list is long CLICK HERE and HERE but here is the latest example:

Raheem Kassam: Ukip full of ‘rag-tag, unprofessional, embarrassing people’

Former closest adviser to Nigel Farage says Ukip leader’s election campaign was let down by party being ‘in a mess because there’s no discipline’

Raheem Kassam said the flat he shared with Nigel Farage during the election campagin ‘looked like a Damien Hirst exhibition’ because it was so unkempt.

Nigel Farage’s election campaign was hampered by a party which is in a mess and full of “rag-tag, unprofessional, embarrassing people”, according his closest adviser in the election campaign.
Ukip insider Raheem Kassam: ‘We had to lock HQ doors because some people were too embarrassing to be seen’

Raheem Kassam, who left Ukip during a bout of bitter infighting after the election, warned that the party was in a “mess because there’s no discipline” and came near to being completely broke after throwing everything at the general election campaign. Ukip is now in the process of moving from its Mayfair office and downsizing to a much smaller location in Westminster.

The Farage adviser said he looked back on many people within Ukip as “a bunch of rag-tag, unprofessional, embarrassing people who let Nigel down at every juncture.”

He told the Guardian: “Someone needs to go in there with a big stick. It needs root-and-branch reform. The constitution is outdated, the national executive is outdated. The funding streams are all wrong. The website is all wrong. It needs a massive, massive overhaul.”

Kassam said he believed Farage would like to lead the campaign for those who want to take Britain out of the EU and that his former boss would be the best person to do so. The 28-year-old spent eight months in Farage’s inner circle as his senior adviser.

Kassam left the party after the general election when some of his critics in Ukip branded him a “poisonous” influence on Farage, dragging the party too far to the right. He disputed this and claimed his detractors were upset by his closeness to Farage during the campaign and were trying to stop the Ukip leader playing too big a role in the EU referendum.

He recalled his time working at Farage’s side, which included going for steam-room trips together in an effort to stop the Ukip leader sweating on television. The leader and his key advisers regularly consumed what Ukippers call PFLs (“proper fucking lunches”) and shared with him a flat in Ramsgate, Kent that “looked like a Damien Hirst exhibition” because it was so unkempt.

In his remarks, Kassam also:

• Predicted Douglas Carswell, the party’s only MP, would only last another six months in Ukip, as he is not accepting any public funds and is therefore no longer useful.

• Described Ukip’s headquarters as “like a fucking playground”, where he and another aide would show journalists around and “have to lock certain doors because the people behind those doors were too embarrassing to be seen”.

• Spoke of his feelings of regret at having gone to work for Ukip in the first place, which he says led to him being made the “fall guy” in the post-election feud between Farage’s camp and figures such as Carswell, Patrick O’Flynn and Suzanne Evans who wanted the party to more towards the centre.

• Branded one party activist who he declined to name as a “definite racist” and “disgraceful”, although he said that he encountered far less prejudice in Ukip than when he had in the Conservative party.

Kassam, who now works for rightwing website Breitbart, has recently signed up Farage as a columnist and said he is still in regular contact with his former boss.

A Ukip spokesman said: “Raheem Kassam has not worked for Ukip since the election and for much of the intervening period has been out of the country. As such, given the changes that have happened since that time, he is more than a little out of touch with the reality.

“Mr Farage has made clear time and time again that he sees himself as ‘a’, not ‘the’, leader of the out campaign, and is calling for a broad, inclusive campaign which is cross-party, and no party.

“On the question of party finances, of course the party’s coffers are a little bare: we have just fought an election campaign; this is the same for all parties. Many members of staff were working on ‘election contracts’, including Mr Kassam, and were not expected to, nor expected themselves to, continue working for the party after the election. This in turn means that our we no longer need the same size office. So much is normal.

“Mr Kassam is not privy to the financial situation of the party now, nor was he before. As to the other comments, he is entitled to his own views, of course, but they are not views shared by the party.”

Last week, Farage appeared to imply that he would like to lead the “out” campaign durign the EU referendum, In an interview with the Daily Telegraph newspaper, he said: “We are going to take the lead, we are going to get cracking. But we will at all times invite others to come along and share the platform with us …

“The no campaign needs to get itself moving. All this nonsense from very snobby Tories that we should not dominate the campaign and I should go on holiday for six months – forget it!

“We are going to be at the forefront of this – we will open our arms and be all embracing and welcome everybody.”

He was Nigel Farage’s righthand man and election strategist, and even shared a flat with the Ukip leader. Forced out of the party, Kassam breaks his silence about the egos, the infighting and the hopeless manifesto

Raheem Kassam was the right-hand man who rarely left Nigel Farage’s side during the election campaign. He was there for the drinking sessions, the ups-and-downs of Farage’s mood swings and even accompanied him on a series of steam-room trips in an attempt to stop the Ukip leader looking so sweaty on television. But less than a week after the election, Kassam was pressured out of his job in one of Ukip’s periodic bouts of infighting.

So what is his verdict on eight months at the heart of Farage’s empire? “I totally regret it. Every minute,” he says. “I don’t mean it was a horrible experience. But I’ve taken a big hit for nothing. The only good thing that’s come out of this are friendships … But have I got anything else apart from looking at much of Ukip and thinking you are just a bunch of ragtag, unprofessional, embarrassing people who let Nigel down at every juncture? No.”

The public feuding kicked off after Farage decided to “un-resign”, going back on his promise to step down after he failed to win his target seat of South Thanet. In the fallout, Kassam’s detractors accused him of being a divisive Iago-type figure, dripping rightwing poison into Farage’s ear that harmed the party’s chances of winning over moderate voters. According to his critics, it was Kassam’s “shock and awe” strategy that led Farage to warn against foreigners with HIV using the NHS and claim there were half a million Islamist extremists among the migrants trying to cross the Mediterranean.

But Kassam denies this was ever his game plan – his theory is that people were jealous that he got too close to the Ukip leader, to the exclusion of almost every other acolyte. By polling day, it was obvious to those following the Ukip campaign that the inner court of King Nigel had shrunk to Kassam, election strategist Chris Bruni-Lowe and his Kent press officer Sarah White.

“Egos got in the way at every point,” Kassam says. “Who do you think Nigel would call? It was always me. They absolutely hated that. But the truth of it was that we were always mopping up everyone’s messes.”

We meet at the Blue Boar, a regular haunt in Westminster, and the supremely confident Kassam seems unfazed. He has just returned from a holiday in the US, is back at his old job at the rightwing news site Breitbart and is ready to lift the lid on some bizarre and dysfunctional happenings that dogged Ukip’s campaign. Over a drink, he’s keen to outline what went wrong. The confusion over whether Farage should back a cap on immigrants? “It created an impression of chaos. There is no way to look at it and think: ‘These guys really know what they are talking about.’” The suspension of gaffe-prone Janice Atkinson as an MEP for allegedly trying to inflate her expenses? “Nigel wanted her out before that. She should have gone when she said ‘ting-tong’.”

The feuding between Farage’s personal team and officials at party HQ? “It was like a playground in there … It got to the point where journalists would come into HQ and we’d have to lock certain doors because the people behind those doors were too embarrassing to be seen.” The manifesto? “It was a clusterfuck.” A particular party activist who remained in post despite a chequered history? “Disgraceful. The man is a racist, there is no doubt about it … I don’t throw around racism often, I have a high threshold for it because I’m so anti-PC, but he is a definite racist.”

Kassam says this was the only example of racism that he encountered during his time in the party and that he faced more prejudice when he was a member of the Conservative party. The most surreal moment? When Louise Bours, the health spokeswoman, decided to resign in the middle of one of Farage’s rallies in a row over NHS spending. “Afterwards, I had to lock everyone out of the room and tell Nigel. I can’t repeat what he said then.” She was later persuaded to stay and the episode never became public.

He blames three senior Ukip figures for engineering his exit from the party and trying to orchestrate a coup against Farage – Patrick O’Flynn, the former economics spokesman, Suzanne Evans, the deputy chairman, and Douglas Carswell, the party’s only MP. This is a charge they all deny, but O’Flynn was stripped of his frontbench role and Evans of her responsibility for policy in the aftermath of the row. Kassam reckons Carswell will survive just another six months in Ukip because he is no longer useful, given that the party has turned down almost £1m of public funding due to him as an MP. “Douglas is not worth anything, he has no clout. He means nothing to us now,” he says.

On O’Flynn, he is equally scathing: “I’m sorry, but if you are Patrick O’Flynn and you have managed via your morning briefings to elicit a headline that says the EU is brainwashing our children through colouring books – OK, you tell me who is doing more damage to the party? And you know what the worst thing is? I went out to bat for those guys every time when they were in trouble.”

Kassam claims that even before the election he could see a “plot” coming and warned Farage to no avail. “I predicted everything that would happen – the Suzanne stuff, the Carswell stuff, the Patrick stuff – nobody listened to me,” he says. “It earned me a lot of credit with Nigel that I foresaw that.”

Not enough to keep him in the job, some might say, with the others still in the party. But Kassam claims he was not forced out of his role as Farage’s senior adviser, but instead chose to leave at the end of his contract in order to “bulletproof Nigel”.

His argument goes like this: the anti-Farage camp believed the Ukip leader was veering too far to the right and had become too toxic to lead an EU referendum campaign that was now going to happen under a Cameron majority government. As Kassam’s critics lined up, painting him as a malign Tea Party influence on Farage, he says he was confronted with the choice of trying to brave out the row or resigning temporarily before returning as part of the leader’s Brussels staff. As it happened, Kassam was on the way to see his old boss at Breitbart in the US at the time, and was offered his former job back on the spot. He downed a shot of vodka, and then made his way to the Sky News studio to start defending Farage and attacking O’Flynn, including accusing him of having “personal problems” live on air.

“In those situations it’s fight or flight. You can crumble or you can rise to the occasion. I was sitting there thinking: it’s fine. It’s just a job, I did my best. If I genuinely thought I’d let Nigel down in any way I would have been upset and distracted … But basically I’ve formed a one-man human shield around Nigel. Every time they go for him, who will the journalists come to for background and quotes? I’m his forcefield at the moment. He knows it to be true to this minute.”

Certainly, the whole episode has not dented Kassam’s loyalty to Farage, whom he describes as his “hero”. He claims they still speak regularly, most recently the day before – about the content of his speeches, social media and just general chat. Not coincidentally, Farage has also just signed up as Breitbart’s new star columnist. So why is he speaking out now, and would Farage be unhappy about what he has to say to the media? “Probably. But that’s my prerogative. “I think Nigel’s had a rough time, unfairly. And I’ve had a rough time, unfairly. That’s why.”

The 28-year-old son of Muslim immigrants who live in Uxbridge, Kassam might not seem the most likely choice to become friends with the leader of Ukip, but he has a history of working for rightwing websites and the Henry Jackson Society thinktank. He says he first bonded with Farage when they met in the US and went on to have what is known in the Ukip lexicon as a number of “PFLs” – proper fucking lunches, defined by the number of bottles of wine that are consumed. After he was hired – despite warnings in the media about his “wild self-importance” – Kassam believes he became invaluable to Farage because he was one of the few people to stand up to him.

During the last six weeks of the election campaign, Kassam was dispatched to the target constituency to take charge as it became clear the Tories were throwing in more resources. He immediately moved into Farage’s flat in Ramsgate, which became a place where there was a wine glass stuffed with cigarettes butts, an electricity meter that kept running out of credit and Farage’s bed was a mattress on the living room floor. “It looked like a Damien Hirst exhibition,” he says with pride.

On a typical day, Farage would be up at 6am, bright and perky for a breakfast of kippers at a nearby hotel. “Then we’d rendezvous at the office and decide what we want to do for the day, which would involve some walkabouts and a lot of knocking on doors. Then we’d maybe hit a pub for lunch. Then more walkabouts and more canvassing. Then another pint around 5 o’clock, go out and do more evening canvassing. Then around 9, we’d go to The Smugglers [pub] for dinner or we’d go to La Magnolia [an Italian] and have a nice civilised meal.”

However, the entire Ukip team had failed to spot that Farage’s health difficulties – which led media commentators to note that the Ukip leader was tired and snappy at points in the campaign – were affecting his mood. “None of us realised he had back problems,” he says. “That was his fault. We all saw the way he looked during the Believe in Britain speech. I thought: ‘We’d been for a steam three days running so you don’t look sweaty. But you’re still sweating and look really uncomfortable.’ I couldn’t understand it.”

Farage finally spoke out about his agonising pain a few weeks before polling day, and decided to scale back his schedule and concentrate his time mostly on winning South Thanet. In the end, he lost by around 2,000 votes, having been convinced right up until the day itself that he was about to enter parliament on his seventh attempt.

“We knew by 10 o’clock that we hadn’t done it,” Kassam says. “That morning, Nigel and I went to vote together, and we were both in good spirits. I was quietly confident, I knew it was so close … But suddenly between 12 and 4 there were queues in Broadstairs, and I thought: Oh no, these people are not voting for us … It got to around eight and the queues in Broadstairs hadn’t subsided and everywhere else had. I said that’s it. I had tears in my eyes and I was genuinely holding back tears for the next 48 hours. I don’t cry, but I was so sad, so deeply sad.”

While the results rolled in, Farage was asleep, while Kassam and Bruni-Lowe slept in 30-minute shifts to keep abreast of the news. In the morning, they accompanied Farage to the declaration, knowing that he had lost.

Within an hour, Farage had resigned, and Kassam still insists that the Ukip leader was relieved to be going – despite famously unresigning just four days later. Kassam will also not hear any criticism of the South Thanet campaign itself, which he boldly declares to have been the “single best campaign ever, ever in British politics, bar maybe the Bradford spring”. If it were not for the SNP, he says, the party would have won around five more seats.

Kassam also takes umbrage at the claims that he was responsible for Farage repeatedly bringing up the issue of immigrants with HIV using NHS resources. O’Flynn was fully onside, he says, and was present in the spin room after Farage’s television debate, ready to brief the press on the issue. He also disputes the idea that this in any way deterred potential voters.

“I don’t think there was anyone who was thinking of voting for us who was put off by that,” he says. “Don’t forget Labour voters aren’t who you think they are. They aren’t sat in Hampstead sipping Chateau Neuf Du Pape.”

Later on, Kassam returns to the theme. “Life is not a Michael Jackson song, you can’t heal the world,” he says. “I’d like to see any political party try and stand on that principle.”

Hi,

in 22 years the Ukip cult has delivered virtually nothing towards getting Britain out of the EU – it was Jimmy Goldsmith and his £29Million intervention with his political party that secured Britain’s position outside the EUro.
Nigel Farage’s total failure of leadership led Ukip to obsucurity with absolutely no effort made to oppose the imposition of the EU’s new constitution in the form of the Lisbon Treaty.
Nigel Farage and his clique firmly rejected any efforts to hold a responsible petition other than to swindle funds out of the EU and donors, which was never accounted as they gathered funding and new leads for membership and begging letters under the malign guidance of David Lott, Nigel Farage & Mark Croucher.
Nigel Farage took an active role in trying to sabotage the actual petition which gained us all the debate in Parliament which resulted in David Cameron’s promise to deliver an IN/OUT Referendum on EU membership, which was achieved by the 250,000 signatures obtained by Nikki Sinclaire’s  cross party campaign, which was delivered to Downing Street.

Ukip had so lost the leading role in the battle to liberate these United Kingdoms from vassal status in the EU that even todate they still, after 22 years have absolutely no responsible costed ethical EU eXit and survival strategy relative to the EU – Being rude to EU officials is no substitute for hard work and has made Ukip the derided clowns of EU politics, the comic relief sector, with their childish stunts and posturing without any gravitas or achievements.

Ukip has shown it is willing top prostitute itself to the lowest common denominator to try to pick up votes, pandering to the racism and xenophobia present in between 10 and 20% of the population of any major Country the very same sector tapped into by Oswald Moseley and Adolf Hitler before him – botjh, like Nigel Farage presented as the man of the year, in their respective times!

There is little doubt that Nigel Farage in his incompetence indubitably knows how to make enemies and has never won a domestic election having stood 8 times for Parliament and like General DeGaule repeatedly threatening to resign and abandon his cult followers if they do not bend to his will and his fiddling of internal selections, elections, policy, appointments and obfuscation of Ukip accounts!

That Ukip has had the philipe of the collapse of the BNP at just the right time for Ukip to pick up their votes, even so Nigel Farage’s utter incompetence as a leader ensured they lost a seat in Westminster rather than gain them at the General Election! Ukip had so crassly misunderstood British politics that despite obtaining almost 4 million votes they only had ONE MP elected, an ex-Tory with a personal following and policies at loggerheads with Farage and his cult.

Meanwhile by reading the UK electoral methods the SNP with a fraction of the votes ensured they had almost 50 MPs elected – clearly the SNP had the more competent leadership as there is no denying the aim was to have MPs elected. a task at which Nigel Farage totally failed his Ukip cult where the SNP were brilliantly led.
It can nor be denied that Nigel Farage is very much a ‘Marmite’ personality with easily as many reviling or at least holding him in contempt as there are his fan club who support the Ukip cult.
For Nigel Farage to have any role in the referendum is the most direct single step to ensuring the YES vote will win and we will be locked in as a vassal state of the EU for another generation or until the EU experiment collapses, whichever is the sooner. Nigel Farage and his cult followers in Ukip have shown all too clearly their lack of gravitas, their lack of leadership, their lack of political common sense and their divisive competence!

If the EU Referendum comes up and Nigel Farage’s name is put forward – IF you have any wish to Leave_The_EU

EU Referendum: a turning point to defeat

Saturday 6 June 2015

000a Telegraph-006 lead.jpg
A day after we see a report that Blair is the least trusted figure in the EU debate, with Farage the second most distrusted figure, up pops the Ukip leader telling us he is going to lead the “out” campaign. 
So well prepared is the man, though, that he doesn’t even seem to have realised that this is going to be a “yes-no” campaign and that he wants to be leading the “no” side.

Displaying the same arrogance as other wannabes, he also fails to realise that the lead organisation is not going to self-nominate. The leads on both sides are for the Electoral Commission to designate – and that is not going to happen until after the Referendum Bill has become law.

The rather strange thing is that this is not exactly a secret. It has been a facet of all recent referendums, and is going to be a crucial part of this one, with a very substantial dowry – worth several millions – and other privileges awarded to the designated organisations.

But if Farage is even aware of this, he has given no sign of it, planning to make a speech today to his own activists, after claiming: “We are going to take the lead, we are going to get cracking”.

Then says Farage: “We will be launching a massive series of public events and meetings all over the country starting in September. These will be public meetings. They will be live web streamed”. Then, he adds: “We are going to be busy, delivering leaflets through the doors by the million. We are not prepared to stand around and wait”.

What is worrying the man – and he’s not alone in this – is prominent campaigners who want to wait to see the result of Mr Cameron’s renegotiation before they make a move. In response, he says: ” The No campaign needs to get itself moving. All this nonsense from very snobby Tories that we should not dominate the campaign and I should go on holiday for six months – forget it!”

Nevertheless, while expecting to be at the forefront, Farage is saying that “we will open our arms and be all embracing and welcome everybody”. We will “reach out broadly across Eurosceptic community and across communities in this country”, he says.

Bearing in mind that Ukip only represents eight percent of the total electorate, if it is to stand a chance of winning the lead designation, it will have to attract the support of others, yet there are no indications as yet of which other groups are prepared to throw in their lot with the party.

There are some indications that there may be at least one more and possibly two competitive bidders for the designation, with the anti-EU movement totally fragmented. This raises the spectre of the Electoral Commission refusing to designate a “no” lead, leaving the groups to fight it out between themselves, without the financial support or any official status.

Despite this, Farage is making it clear that he refuses to be treated as “the naughty boy of British politics, being told to go and behave and stay out of the way”. He says: “That simply isn’t going to happen”.

“It is time”, Farage says, “for those across the political spectrum, particularly in the Conservative Party, to put their cards on the table. No more endless waiting, political hand-wringing or excuses. The campaign must start now”.

He says he is prepared to work with anyone and everyone who is willing to help us win this referendum and get Britain out of the European Union. But, he adds, “Those who want to help rather than harm our campaign need to stop wasting time, get off the fence and get on with helping us get our country back. There is not a minute to lose”.

All this, however, is going to cause more than a little dismay in certain quarters. Ukip, as a party, is demonstrably unprepared to fight an effective referendum campaign. Under a leader who has toxified the debate and whose tactical acumen has halved his party’s Westminster representation at the general election, few outsiders any confidence that Ukip’s intervention is going to help the cause.

Certainly, it is far too early to start active high-level active campaigning, and especially as so many of the strategic issues have yet to be resolved.

Thus, when it comes to writing the history of this campaign, I suspect that this week will mark another of those turning points which led us down the route to defeat. And future historians may well remark at the determination of so many parties on the “no” side, not only to repeat the mistakes of the 1975 campaign, but to invent a few more.

Whatever else, those historians will be wondering how it was that people apparently so committed to leaving the EU we so determined to do everything they could to remain members.

They only other thing they may ponder at is why there was, in fact, any need for a “yes” campaign, when the “noes” were so determined to lose all by themselves.

Hi,
Mark Croucher’s contemptible corruption of the Chartered Institute of Journalists, with its current tiny membership of largely unheard of and irrelevant members belies the CIOJ’s inheritted wealth and current risible status – as shown in the letter below and CLICK HERE
Dear Reader,

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 the Chartered Institute of Journalists (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 CIOJ 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.

Fabius Maximus.
