Hi,

0c687-batten4

it seems Ukip’s final demise is coming faster than one might expect, the failure started with Farage, who realised there was nothing further he could personally milk out of it & quit, leaving it in the catastrophic hands of first Diane James who realised that her partner had sufficient assetts for those who were owed money by the party once she had the leadership to persue her – had shunned the awkward and savoury public moment of being kissed by Nigel Farage and had read the balance sheet , it seems , as she quit in 18 days!

Nigel Farage had to keep it going to distance himself from its parlous state and stepped back in long enough to find some other idiot to dupe into the position and in quick succession there was Paul Nuttall who was forced to crawl away & hide under a stone or something, once we had comprehensively exposed his lies & braggadocio in his embarrassingly nonsense CV (almost as much exagerated rubbish as that of David Bannerman who had made an earlier play for leadership but lost hands down when I exposed him also!).

Next we had Henry Bolton who had little understanding of the cause or the party but felt, with his new exalted title, it was time to dump his wife and as I recall small child to parade his new bimbo who lasted a very short time  for reasons well exposed elsewhere on this blog! He promptly quit.

Now they were really scraping the barrel and the only person willing to take on the role was the utterly incompetent, corrupt, obsessive Gerard Batten with his Phillipino wife and hence his extremist Islamaphobic views – views that have been the keystone of his catastrophic leadership.

Not content with his extreme racism, presumably to make him look less extreme he took on, as his main advisor & prominent spokesman (when out of prison!) the infamous Tommy Robinson and thus a surge of new members from the ever more extreme gutter sweepings that Ukip has attracted over latter years.

Now of the 24 MEPs elected to Ukip I see the 3 remaining women have also jumped ship leaving Gerard Batten with a crew of 3 in the EU now!

Ukip’s sole remaining MEPs are the oaff Mike Hookem, best if not only known for having been an instigator of a fist fight which hospitalised another Ukip MEP now affiliated with the Tory Party, then there is the odious scoundrel Stuart Agnew who was exposed some years ago on film bragging of how he, with Malcolm Pearson (a Peer of dubious origins) & Nigel Farage fiddling donations to Ukip to avoid declaring them, finally there is Ray Finch, something of a nonentity, probably best known for employing Kirsten Farage (Nigel’s wife) whilst Nigel employed her @£30Kpa his only justification seemed to be she was willing to carry out her duties late at night in a dressing gown – where that places Finch I know not!

Then of course there is Batten himself – all a rather sorry situation and one can but hope that IF there is participation in an EU election in May, Batten will stand down and Ukip will withdraw from the field of combat to avoid further embarrassment having slid from 24 MEPs to their present 4!

It is unlikely Ukip, despite the utter mess Corbyn has forced May into over BreXit whether Ukip will get ANY councillors returned on May 2nd local elections.

Surely the public have had enough of this shower!

22fb7-taf

To be sure those who have sought liberation from the EU to take full advantage of the opportunities BreXit clearly offers will be glad to see them gone as they have done so much damage to the cause and thus the country over the years.

Hi,

do be minded that Nigel Farage & Mick McGough have worked closely together for almost 20 years, even in the early 2000s the overt bully & racist McGough was heavily involved as a book keeper for Farage & also acting as one of Farage’s bully boys with no gutter he was not prepared to wallow in to aid his idol – all be it for his own gain in terms of expenses, opportunities & salary!

Drinking buddies of many years standing!

McGOUGH, Michael 05

Brexit party official removed after antisemitic posts

Nigel Farage’s party says treasurer no longer has role after making ‘unacceptable statements’

A senior official from Nigel Farage’s pro-Brexit party has been removed after the Guardian uncovered antisemitic and other offensive Facebook posts he made, two weeks after the party leader quit her role for similar reasons.

The party said Michael McGough, its treasurer, had made “unacceptable statements” and would no longer have any role in the organisation.

In some messages, McGough refers to Ed and David Miliband and Peter Mandelson as having “shallow UK roots” or being “devoid of UK roots” – seen as a common antisemitic trope about Jewish people.

A Facebook post saw McGough refer to a foreigner as “someone from a bingo bongo land”. In another, he said many survivors of the Grenfell Tower fire were “illegal aliens enjoying an amnesty”.

On 20 March the original leader, Catherine Blaiklock, resigned after the Guardian asked her about a series of deleted anti-Islam Twitter messages, in which she repeatedly retweeted far-right figures as well as sending her own offensive updates.

The Electoral Commission now lists Farage as the party leader. The departure of McGough means that two of the three Brexit party officers originally listed by the commission have now left.

McGough was previously a longstanding Ukip member. He was on the party’s national executive and stood for election as an MP three times in the Essex constituency of Brentwood and Ongar. Like Farage and Blaiklock he left the party over its anti-Islam stance under its current leader.

Despite this, one of McGough’s Facebook posts, from March 2017, refers obliquely to Islam potentially being a “fifth column” in the UK. “Perhaps a packet of bacon would act like garlic to a vampire but I doubt it,” he wrote. “If we had sharia law then surely most of the terrorist retards would be limbless as they all seem to have past criminal records for theft and violence.”

A string of posts from the same year use seemingly antisemitic insults against the Milibands and Mandelson. One calls David Miliband “son of an east European communist now milking it from a charity in New York and devoid of UK roots”.

Another message says: “The Miliband dudes and Mandelson have the shortest of roots. Transient folk they have no loyalty to the UK.” One reply by another user tells McGough he is on “slightly dangerous ground”. McGough replies: “True, but there is a valid point to be made even if it seems offensive. It is not dissimilar to Lord Tebbit’s cricket test.”

A post about Mandelson reads: “I resent being called racist by an old queen with shallow UK roots.”

McGough also posted a string of homophobic comments in the autumn of 2017, when there were two LGBT candidates vying for the then vacant Ukip leadership.

“I don’t want a skirtlifter for leader,” he wrote in one. A post a month earlier said: “With Queers Week on the BBC we are being bombarded with material to undermine our sexuality and procreation. I doubt the immigrant birth rates will be affected.” Another referred to a transgender politician who had been on BBC radio: “My, what a deep voice and what a lousy state broadcaster.”

The Brexit party statement said: “The Brexit party is saddened by the unacceptable statements made by Mr McGough. Taken together they mean that he cannot hold a position in the Brexit party.”

Marie van der Zyl, president of the Board of Deputies of British Jews, said the party “did the right thing” in parting company with McGough and Blaiklock. “The new party will need to institute rigorous anti-racist procedures and policies to ensure this doesn’t keep happening,” she said.

Ian Murray, a Labour MP who backs the People’s Vote campaign, said Farage’s new party seemed to be “vectors for nasty, vicious and ugly politics”.

He said: “The worst argument against a People’s Vote or the European elections has always been that they would encourage the far right. We should be fighting, not hiding from, the far right and their friends like Farage at every single opportunity.”

Hi,

The Founder Of Nigel Farage’s New Brexit Party Has A History Of Anti-Muslim Comments

“If these people really dislike it so much in the West, why do they chose [sic] to live here?”

The founder of Nigel Farage’s new Brexit party has a long history of making inflammatory comments about Muslims, BuzzFeed News can reveal.

When he resigned from UKIP in December last year, Farage explained his decision by warning that his former party was “turning a blind eye to extremist politics” and had become “obsessed with Islam”.

Brexity party founder Catherine Blaiklock

But Farage has now thrown his “full support” behind a new party founded by former UKIP candidate Catherine Blaiklock, who has herself repeatedly made anti-Muslim comments and promoted online material attacking Muslims.

Blaiklock registered the Brexit party with the Electoral Commission on Feb. 5 and is said to be hoping to run candidates in the European elections in May if the UK has not left the EU by then.

The new party has been endorsed by Farage, who said: “This was Catherine’s idea entirely — but she has done this with my full knowledge and my full support. If the government goes back on its word and betrays the millions of people who voted for Brexit then we need a party prepared to stand up and fight for it.”

Over the last year, Blaiklock has written opinion pieces for a range of right-wing outlets, including the pro-Tommy Robinson news website Politicalite and the conservative quarterly magazine the Salisbury Review. She’s also written several pieces for the partisan UKIP website Independence Daily, been interviewed by the Kremlin-backed propaganda site Sputnik News, and in November appeared on Breitbart writer James Delingpole’s podcast.

In a blog post titled “Burka’s [sic] in Detroit” published on her website in May last year, Blaiklock complained that when she ordered a Thai takeaway meal in the US city it was delivered by a woman in a burka.

“What is happening in a few areas of the United States is truly shocking – and few American’s [sic] can even believe it,” she wrote. “There are two cities, near Detroit, that have become almost total Muslim enclaves.” She was referring to Hamtramck in Michigan, which is said to have been the first Muslim-majority city council in the US, and Dearborn, also in Michigan, where around one-third of the city claims some Arab heritage, according to the Arab American Institute.

Blaiklock then urged her readers to watch a YouTube video titled “Muslim Takeover Of Dearborn Michigan”, which she called “fascinating”, and another video called “Angry Muslims Taunt To School Board ‘We’re Going to Be the Majority Soon’”.

Blaiklock concluded her article by writing: “There are currently 50 majority Muslim countries in the world. If these people really dislike it so much in the West, why do they chose [sic] to live here? One can only ponder the answer to that question”.

In an email to BuzzFeed News, she said: “I was merely stating a personal opinion that is shared quite widely, both at home and abroad, indeed in a series of muslim [sic] majority countries, as the article makes clear.”

In an article for the pro-Tommy Robinson website Politicalite in July, Blaiklock backed a Conservative party activist who was suspended for claiming that “radical so-called Islamists” are “raping and impregnating British girls and young women, ‘creating’ Muslim babies”.

In her defence of Carola Godman Irvine, Blaiklock wrote: “If 23% of ordinary British Muslim think Sharia law should be implemented, just think what the really radical think. There is also some truth in the statement that Muslim men were impregnating white British girls to create Muslim babies”.

Blaiklock went on: “The real issue, of course, is not what Muslims think, that seems pretty well known. Muslims, particularly in France, have been saying for a while that ‘Someday this will all be ours.’ The real issue is what do the Conservative Party think they are doing.”

Blaiklock told BuzzFeed News that she was merely highlighting “the point about radical Islam not liking our way of life. Is that not entirely uncontroversial?”

In September, Blaiklock wrote an opinion piece titled “Prayer mats or beer mats?” for the Salisbury Review, which lamented the closure of pubs across Britain, while also questioning where money for mosques was coming from.

“According to The British Beer and Pub Association, 10,500 pubs have closed since 2000,” Blaiklock wrote. “Just imagine if even a small proportion of these pubs get turned into Mosques. That is what seems to be happening in East Anglia.”

Turning attention to the situation in Norwich, Blaiklock wrote, “I doubt that you would ever see a Burka and rarely a Hijab, but it seems that there are enough Muslims to built [sic] a large Mosque.”

“You have to question where such a small community gets £1.5m of donations from. It takes a lot of Bangladeshi takeaways dishes at £1 profit a time to raise and save these sort of amounts.”

Asked about the article, she said it was simply raising “some questions” about “strange” and “un-investigated” coincidences in East Anglia.

Blaiklock’s Twitter account @cablaiklock is also no longer active on the platform. But in a cached version of a tweet sent on Christmas Day found by BuzzFeed News, she commented on a news story about 40 migrants being rescued from boats in the English Channel. Noting the migrants were “all from Islamic countries”, Blaiklock wrote: “When will 40 become 400, become 4000, become 40,000, become 4m, become 40m?”

@cablaikilock / Twitter

When asked about the tweet, Blaiklock told BuzzFeed News: “The question stands. The answer of course could be never.”

Blaiklock’s history of inflammatory comment does not just extend to Muslims. In August, she wrote an article titled “Apartheid USA” for the Salisbury Review, in which she gave her account of what she perceived as the inequalities in Boston, Massachusetts.

Recounting a visit to a café called Sweetgreen full of “professional, educated, intelligent and probably Democrat” customers, Blaiklock wrote: “Outside, on the streets, in front of [Sweetgreen] were 5 star hotels, charging £600 per night, (without breakfast), lived an even lower community than the one in Wendy’s: The homeless underclass. Pregnant, scared and scarred, drugged white girls mixed with demented older black men. Weird and lost people of all descriptions wandered about”.

She told BuzzFeed News the piece was “a criticism of a state of reality in inner city Boston”.

In April last year, Blaiklock wrote an open letter to the English Heritage charity about a training programme aimed at BAME candidates. Describing her daughters as “half-Nepalese”, Blaiklock asked: “Does that fit your ‘Minority Ethnic Heritage’ definition? They have both English and Nepalese names: so, if one applied as Zangmu Llama, I presume her application would be accepted? Whereas if she applied as Jane Hawes, may I presume it would be rejected?”

Blaiklock then described one of her daughters as having “Mongoloid” eyes. She wrote: “To complicate things further, one of my daughters looks Asian. She has ‘Mongoloid’ eyes and an epicanthic fold. My other daughter doesn’t — she has white skin and dark hair and eyes. She is often told she looks Spanish or Brazilian. If she were to apply, would she need to prove her ethnic mix?”

She concluded: “Does a Jewish man or woman count as an ethnic minority? You see many Jewish people look exactly like my daughter. Does Spanish count as ‘ethnic’? What about my previous husband who was half Singaporean and half British? He and his brother looked completely different: one looked Chinese and the other looked Caucasian. Does 25 per cent ‘ethnic’ count? Does 12.5 per cent count? Where does ‘ethnic’ end?”

When asked about the article, she said: “The Brexit party, is not about anything like this, though again I stand by my points in this article. English heritage responded that BAME is defined only by self-identification.

“It is about letting the legacy parties know that if they renege on their promises to the people of this country then they will live to regret it electorally.”

Approached by BuzzFeed News, Farage declined to comment on whether he will continue to support the Brexit party in light of its founder’s views.

Responding to this story, a spokesperson for the Muslim Council of Britain said:

“Nigel Farage’s claim that he left UKIP due to its descent into Islamophobia and its alignment with elements of the far-right, appears untenable given the new revelations.

“Without any immediate action by Mr Farage, many will understandably conclude that given his own personal history, Islamophobia was being used as a convenient political football in his fight against Mr Batten rather than a matter of principle against racism.

Mr Farage must act immediately to disassociate from Ms Blaiklock and The Brexit Party under her leadership.”

Hi,

The Brexit Party: We’re only making plans for Nigel

None of this will come as any surprise to those who know him well in a political context: Nigel Farage appears to be positioning himself to be ready, should the opportunity arise, to remain in the European Parliament (EP) for a fifth term.

His newly formed Brexit Party (although it is not clear at this point what, if any, official office he will hold) has been officially recognised by the UK Electoral Commission, clearing the way for him to stand in this year’s European Parliament Elections if, as appears possible, Brexit is delayed. The EP’s administration has put into place contingency plans for just such an event. 

We’re only making plans for Nigel… We only want what’s best for him… We’re only making plans for Nigel… Nigel just needs this helping hand

Lyrics by Colin Moulding, bassist of English rock band XTC

An EP with UK MEPs would look far different from the post-Brexit situation that the Eurocrats have been planning for. After the UK’s withdrawal the Parliament would have had fewer MEPs, although some UK seats would have been redistributed to the remaining 27 member states. It would also see a significant reduction in staff numbers. Although current staff members of UK origin have been assured that they will be redeployed, they will not be eligible for future promotion. Many of them have tried to address this problem by obtaining Belgian citizenship.

All this would have had major ramifications for the EP’s budget, and the last thing any EU institution wants is to see it’s budget being reduced. At this moment there is a great deal of horse trading going on in the backrooms of both the EP and the European Commission.

Farage’s personal ambitions to remain in the institution that has fed him since 1999 – he is one of the UK’s longest standing MEPs – should not be viewed in isolation.

 As reported in EU Today (Dec 1st 2018), he gave his full support to his current Press Officer in the EP, one Hermann Kelly, during the September 8th 2018 Dublin launch of a new Irish party, clumsily named Irexit:Freedom to Prosper

In an interview with the Irish Times, Kelly stated that he was “very much at home” with the economic nationalism espoused by Donald Trump’s former Chief Strategist in the White House, Steve Bannon.

Farage is also highly supportive of, and indeed linked to, Bannon, who is currently working to bring some of Europe’s more extreme right wing political parties together under the banner of The Movement, a somewhat murky populist organisation based in Brussels.

Another person with links to Bannon is Farage’s “co-habitant”, one Laure Ferrari, a former employee of Farage’s political group in the EP. Belgian legal documents obtained by EU Today clearly identify Ms. Ferrari as one of two nominees for the role of Secretary-General of The Movement.

Ms. Ferrari has a background in French populist politics, and was the centre of a UKIP funding scandal whilst head of the Institute for Direct Democracy in Europe (IDDE), which was found by the EP to have “used EU grant funding for the benefit of UKIP in breach of its rules…” This was in response to an enquiry by the Electoral Commission.

There are serious questions being asked in Brussels over the source of the substantial funding that Bannon has brought to The Movement. While he has stated that there is no Russian money involved, very few journalists are looking at any other avenues. It is certainly the case that individual parties involved in The Movement have either obtained, or sought, Russian funding. Certainly those politicians associated with the organisation appear frequently on Russian state controlled media.

Bannon’s former boss, Donald Trump, has also faced repeated suggestions of accepting Kremlin geld. 

The newly formed Brexit Party, which Farage hopes will be him with a vehicle to a fifth mandate in the EP, needs to be examined in this context. 

Farage’s position towards the French far-fight leader Marine Le-Pen has considerably softened: this may have something to do with the fact that she has also come under Bannon’s spell.

Those who worked with or around Farage were aware at the time when a petition calling for a referendum on the UK’s continued membership of the EU was fast gaining signatures – a petition he had nothing to do with, incidentally – that a referendum was the last thing he wanted. 

Farage Signing

Like other UKIP MEPs he was aware that whatever the result, his party’s raison d’être would disappear. He only signed the petition on the green outside the House of Commons on the day that House Backbench Business Committee was debating the petition, and then only under duress from the actual instigator, Nikki Sinclaire, and in front of an amused group of journalists.

Of course, when the referendum was announced, it then became UKIP’s “greatest achievement”.

Despite this “achievement”, and the criticisms he pours upon Theresa May for her appalling handling of the negotiations, one could be forgiven for suspecting that Farage will be privately praying for Brexit to be at the very least delayed.

Hi,

it is easily forgotten that if the independent MEP Nikki Sinclaire had not organised and used her own money to have the British peoples petition Government to hold a full debate in the House of Commons & delivered 225,000 signatures to Parliament – there would have been no IN / OUT Debate relative to the EU.

It is also worth remembering just how duplicitously and dishonestly Nigel Farage campaigned to try to prevent her achieving the 100,000 signatures she needed to force the debate. Just as you will remember Nigel Farage and Ukip did absolutely nothing in Britain to try to stop the new EU Constitution which was signed into EU law as The Lisbon Treaty which Gordon Brown authorised – despite the efforts of the Conservative Party to prevent it!

Many believe that out of spite Nigel Farage colluded with John Ison & Mark Croucher, aided by the corrupt West Midlands Police & CPS, to plant evidence in an effort to frame Nikki Sinclair via the Courts – fortunately the set-up was badly organised and despite Police sitting in Court with the CPS watching the proceedings and influenced by John Ison admitting to his criminal activities in open Court so blatantly that the Judge cautioned him officially Ms. Sinclaire was totally exhonourated of all the lies and allegations brought against her by the Police and approved by the CPS.

Neither the CPS nor West Midland Police had the common courtesy to admit their errors and it would seem they had prepared a case for when she was found guilty aimed at totally bankrupting her!

No damages were forthcoming for the huge stress they had put her under for a number of years with their lies, nor were damages given for her loss of income and loss of her future prospects politically as a result of their dishonesty.

It is also of note that despite having admitten to falsifying evidence and other criminal behaviour in open Court and implicating Nigel Farage the police failed to prosecute either of them and made the palpably false claim that they did not have evidence of the crimes!

Clearly neither the Police nor the CPS can be trusted and are thus unfit for purpose and can not be believed in providing evidence in Court!

Let us therefore remember the price Nikki Sinclaire paid, on our behalf, to ensure BreXit happened.

These are ‘the good things that will happen if no-deal Brexit happens’

Adam Smith

No-deal Brexit is usually described with words like ‘chaos’, ‘crashing out’ and ‘shortages’ but there are a lot of people who believe it will be great for Britain.

So what are the benefits of a hard-Brexit?
Well number one on anyone’s list has to be £39 billion which is the amount of cash the UK has agreed to pay the EU in the Withdrawal Deal.

With Britain’s House of Commons bitterly divided on the way forward for Britain’s departure from the European Union, lawmakers representing various factions are vying to have their say in the Brexit process after they overwhelmingly rejected the government’s divorce agreement two weeks ago.

Instead of sending the cash to Brussels the UK Government could pay around a third of the annual NHS England budget, or even buy thousands of busses plastered with snappy promises. Or with all that unexpected cash sloshing around in the UK’s current account, all 62 million of us in the country could be given a one off cash payment of £628.

If there is no backstop, customs union or other type of deal then as from March 30 the UK can make its own rules up for the first time since 1970.

This is what no-deal fans believe is the most exiting part of leaving the EU. TOPSHOT – Protesters hold up placards and Union flags as they attend a pro-Brexit demonstration promoted by UKIP (United Kingdom Independence Party) in central London on December 9, 2018, as the crucial vote on the Brexit deal in the House of Commons looms. – Prime Minister Theresa May appears likely to lose a historic vote on the Brexit deal she has struck with EU leaders in a crucial parliament vote on Tuesday.

Defeat in the House of Commons is almost certain to lead to either a no-confidence vote from the opposition or a leadership challenge from within her own Conservative Party.

Former UKIP and independent MEP Nikki Sinclaire, whose petition helped force a parliamentary debate about a referendum, told Metro.co.uk: ‘No deal will return parliamentary sovereignty immediately and thus allow the UK to enter into negotiations with the EU on an equal basis and we would be more likely to get a better deal. ‘First and foremost it will allow us to trade with the rest of the world unhindered.

We will be free to enter into free trade agreements with whom we like.’ She added: ‘The UK would reclaim its seat at the World Trade Organisation and would be able to play its full part. We would once again be an independent member of the G7 without oversight of the EU.

Former MEP Nikki Sinclaire believes Brexit will be brilliant for Britain (Picture: PA) ‘Our aid to third world countries could be more targeted. The UK is the second largest donor of foreign aid in the world.

However, the best aid would be able to buy these countries goods therefore able to help these countries trade themselves out of poverty.

‘And another great thing about a no-deal Brexit is that we will never have to see or hear Nigel Farage again!’

Animals lovers are excited about a no-deal Brexit and have already called for the UK to ban the ‘cruel transport of live cattle’ which under EU laws is allowed.

Farm income in the U.K., the European Union’s third-biggest wheat grower, fell 14 percent in 2012 as wet weather reduced harvests and costs climbed, the government said.

Live cattle across borders could be stopped immediately after a no-deal Brexit

The RSPCA’s David Bowles said: ‘The European parliament’s environment, petitions, agriculture and transport committees repeated that member states do not properly comply with or enforce the necessary animal welfare protections and that it is difficult to meet the welfare needs of animals during long-distance transport. ‘These calls for reduced journey times, better animal welfare provisions and much stricter enforcement by member states were also voted through by the Environment Committee.

‘However, the EU Commission has always ignored these calls so we need the governments in the UK to take advantage of Brexit and bring an immediate end to these journeys and this suffering.’ epa07226100

Former Brexit Secretary, David Davis speaks on a mobile telephone as he passes the British Houses of Parliament in central London, Britain, 12 December 2018. British Prime Minister Theresa May will face a challenge to her leadership on 12 December 2018 after 48 letters calling for a contest were delivered to the Chariman of the 1922 Committee. May will find out her future after Conservative Members of Parliament vote between 18:00 GMT and 20:00 GMT later in the evening.

Arch Brexiteer David Davis believes the pound will drop after a no-deal Brexit and ‘that would not be a bad thing’.

He said: ‘The first thing that will happen is it will go about five, ten points down further from the 15 it already is. ‘So, we’ll end up 20 or 25 below what it was before the referendum. That’s not a bad thing. The pound’s always been too high from the point of view of industry because of the effect of the City. ‘Our competitive position with vis-a-vis Europe would be dramatically better even if there are tariffs.’

Wetherspoons boss Tim Martin also believes a no-deal Brexit will help the UK.

He said: ‘We can eliminate tariffs on thousands of products, many of which aren’t made in the UK, like rice, bananas, oranges, New Zealand wine – 12,000 products, and that will make people in the country better off.’

Hi,

UKIP has sold its soul to the far-Right: How leader Gerard Batten, who is married to a Filipina immigrant, has made Tommy Robinson a key lieutenant, calls Islam a ‘death cult’ and has ultra hard line on migration

  • Gerard Batten has been married to Filipina wife, Frances Lina, 60, for 30 years 
  • Proud of his Anglo-Saxon bloodline, he’s outspoken in views against immigration
  • He abhors the Koran, though he has admitted to never having studied it closely 
  • All this would be of little consequence if Mr Batten was not the leader of UKIP

Gerard Batten is an enigma wrapped in a bright purple blazer and banana yellow tie. 

He left school with few, if any, academic qualifications (he won’t confirm) and believes the EU was planned by the Nazis.

But he is also — or claims to be on his CV — a member of Mensa, the ‘high IQ Society’.

Intensely proud of his pure Anglo-Saxon bloodline, he’s outspoken in his views against immigration. Yet 30 years ago he married — and is still married to — a Filipina woman whose family can’t understand the paradox.

He abhors the Koran, though he has admitted to never having studied it closely. And while he is close to Russians who describe themselves as political dissidents against the Moscow government, he is a regular contributor to Vladimir Putin’s English language propaganda arm, Russia Today.

He has also become increasingly irritated with the Mail’s research into the most basic facts of his personal history, tweeting that we have asked a bunch of ‘ludicrous’ questions about him. 

All this would be of little consequence if Mr Batten, 64, was not the leader of a political party which has changed the UK’s political landscape, and probably its future: UKIP. 

His predecessor, Henry Bolton, had been its sixth leader in just 12 months — having to step down after his 25-year-old glamour model mistress posted racist tweets about Meghan Markle, and offensive comments about the Grenfell Tower disaster families.

The manner of Mr Bolton’s demise seemed to confirm what was already apparent: that the party which won more UK seats in the 2014 European Parliament elections than either the Conservatives or Labour had become an irrelevant joke. 

Enter the stern, midnight-haired Mr Batten; an MEP and one of UKIP’s original founders.

Aside from the flamboyant wardrobe he wore to annoy other MEPs in the Strasbourg chamber, there is nothing remotely comic about the course he has set since taking the helm last April.

For he is exploiting the chaos currently engulfing British politics.

While Putin, who has supported populist groups across the EU, looks on with satisfaction at the chaos engulfing British politics and the fracturing of Europe, the far-Right here believes it can exploit, if not fill, a vacuum. 

UKIP was founded by Mr Batten and others to bring about Britain’s exit from the EU. 

Its core support lay in Middle England and white working-class areas which opposed the EU’s open borders that allowed mass immigration.

Now Mr Batten has a new and more radical vision for the UKIP of 2019 and beyond. He says it has already attracted thousands of new young members. 

But it has also frightened off many of the old guard, because the Batten vision involves a key role for a man who’s become poster boy for the far-Right and racists across the world.

Stephen Yaxley-Lennon, better known as Tommy Robinson, is a convicted fraudster and hooligan, as well as being founder and former leader of that boot boy collective the English Defence League (EDL).

But recent events have made him a global social media star; a ‘free speech martyr’.

This week he was in the headlines once again as the 16- year-old Syrian refugee who was ‘water-boarded’ in a filmed racist attack in Huddersfield says he will sue Facebook ‘for not stopping Robinson posting accusations he violently attacked three English girls’.

Mr Batten has been courting Robinson for almost a decade. Now he is in a position to put their ‘bromance’ to work.

Under UKIP rules — although they may change — no former member of the EDL or the overtly-racist British National Party (BNP) is allowed to join. But last year, Mr Batten took Robinson on as his adviser.

Some in UKIP fear Robinson is being groomed to succeed his boss, who has said he’ll stand down sometime this year. UKIP will then become a ‘new British National Party’.

Mr Batten has pooh-poohed this, but told the BBC: ‘I’m taking [UKIP] in a new direction, which is that I want to make it a mass movement.’

Both he and Robinson are Islamophobes.

Mr Batten has described Islam as a ‘death cult’. His ‘interim’ UKIP manifesto calls for Muslim-only prisons and an abolition of hate crime laws. 

In 2006, he suggested that all 3.7 million Muslims in the UK should sign a code of good conduct.

Tory MP Robert Halfon said this was ‘literally akin to the Nazis saying Jews should wear a yellow star’.

On his Facebook page on Christmas Eve, Robinson posted the word ‘UKIP’ and the promise: ‘A revolution is coming.’

If so, it has humble origins.

Mr Batten was born and raised on the Isle of Dogs in East London.

The old white, working-class population of the dockland peninsular had long felt they were neglected by government and under threat by Bengali incomers.

In 1993, the BNP — founded by former members of the neo-Nazi National Front — secured its electoral breakthrough there.

Mr Batten had left by then. After a brief period working as a bookbinder with his brother Harold — who is said to design the UKIP stationery — he was a salesman for British Telecom until elected as an MEP for London in 2004. 

When Nigel Farage became UKIP leader in 2006, he concentrated on European issues, while Mr Batten focused on what he perceived as the Islamic threat.

Colleagues say he hated attending the chambers in Strasbourg and Brussels. And he disliked and envied Farage, who was public school-educated and charismatic. Batten was neither.

What he didn’t mind was sharing a platform with racist loons. In 2011 he addressed the far-Right Traditional Britain Group, whose vice president Gregory Lauder-Frost was last year reportedly recorded calling broadcaster Vanessa Feltz, a ‘fat Jewish s**g’ who ‘lived with a negro’.

Lauder-Frost also spoke in derogatory terms about Doreen Lawrence, mother of murdered black teenager Stephen Lawrence, and advocated the deportation of non-white Britons to their ‘natural homelands’.

At the European Parliament Batten has hosted the far-Right internet troll Carl Benjamin, who once described opponents as ‘acting like a bunch of n******s’. In another tweet, Benjamin told a female Labour MP: ‘I wouldn’t even rape you.’ He attended Mr Batten’s first UKIP conference as leader, and spoke.

Another speaker at the conference was Mark Meechan, aka Count Dankula, who is best-known for being prosecuted over a video — described in court as ‘anti-Semitic’ — showing his pet dog performing Nazi salutes to commands such as ‘Sieg Heil’.

But the most contentious Batten recruit to UKIP is Tommy Robinson, whom he made his adviser on prison reform and sex abuse gangs in November.

This prompted the resignation from the party of three MEPs, Nigel Farage and an unknown number of other members.

One of the MEPs, William Dartmouth, said he left because Mr Batten had introduced ‘outlandish people and extreme Right-wing groups’. 

Robinson was jailed for 13 months for contempt of court in relation to filming people in a grooming case

He add: ‘Mr Batten is setting Robinson up to be the leader. Resigning members have been replaced by people who support Mr Robinson and his ilk. [Batten’s] conduct is an utter disgrace.’

Robinson was jailed for 13 months for contempt of court in relation to filming people in a grooming case. 

The sentence was quashed and the case referred to the Attorney General. The case attracted worldwide attention, and Robinson received the support of American TV star Roseanne Barr among others.

Mr Batten spoke at a number of events held to support Robinson, who has one million followers on Facebook. But the UKIP leader’s ‘fixation’ with Robinson can be traced back almost a decade.

The eureka moment apparently came in February 2011, when the then relatively unknown Robinson was interviewed on BBC2’s Newsnight by Jeremy Paxman. ‘Gerard [Batten] watched the interview and was ecstatic,’ recalls an ex-colleague. ‘He said: “What a brilliant young guy. How do we get in touch?”’

Last spring, after leaving court Robinson and Mr Batten were treated to a three-course lunch at the House of Lords by former Ukip leader Lord Pearson of Rannoch, who told the Mail this week that Mr Batten was ‘a great guy’. 

Lord Pearson added: ‘One of his most extraordinary characteristics is that he believes he lacks charisma.’ The peer said Robinson had ‘great energy’.

While Mr Batten’s relationship with Robinson is unambiguous, there are question marks over his links to other dubious interest groups.

Take Putin’s Russia, for instance. Mr Batten has criticised Russia and accused it of hacking his website.

He has also employed as his researcher, a Russian called Pavel Stroilov who arrived in the UK in 2006 seeking political asylum. Mr Stroilov refused to talk to the Mail last week.

Mr Batten has known a number of other Russian exiles in the UK, including Alexander Litvinenko who was murdered by suspected Russian agents in 2006.

Intriguing links are being examined on the other side of the Atlantic.

Investigators in the U.S. are looking at the alleged relationship between Donald Trump’s election campaign and Moscow.

An area they are interested in is Nigel Farage’s dealings with WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange, who’s taken sanctuary in the Ecuadorian embassy in London since 2012, after jumping bail in a case where he was accused of sex attacks in Sweden. 

Emails from Hillary Clinton’s campaign, leaked by WikiLeaks, are thought to have been originally hacked by Russian agents in 2006.

Mr Farage, who denies any impropriety, was seen visiting the Ecuadorian embassy when Assange was inside. But it was Mr Batten — not Mr Farage — who originally forged the link between UKIP and Assange.

In 2011, Mr Batten and Pavel Stroilov attended one of Assange’s extradition hearings and held a small ‘free speech’ demo outside. Documents show that in February 2011, Mr Batten met Assange’s lawyer to explore ways in which he could help the hacker.

Mr Batten then spoke up for Assange at the European Parliament and attended Assange’s 40th birthday party. 

He also suggested in a blog post that if Assange failed to block his extradition he should seek asylum. He wrote: ‘I would be delighted to advise Mr Assange on how to go about it.’

And that’s exactly what Assange did the following summer, at great cost to the British taxpayer, who has had to pay for six years of policing of his embassy refuge.

Also unclear is Mr Batten’s relationship with James Goddard, the far-Right activist arrested for allegedly harassing MP Anna Soubry outside Parliament earlier this month. 

Mr Batten has denied knowing James Goddard and said it was ‘malicious’ to suggest there was a connection. But there are pictures of the two together.

All this is a puzzle to Mr Batten’s in-laws in the Far East.

He married his wife, Frances Lina, now 60, after she came to the UK from the Philippines in search of a better life. They have two sons.

Speaking to the Mail in the family’s hometown of Bambang, Ike Cayaban, Mr Batten’s brother-in-law said: ‘I’m quite surprised about why is he so against immigration, because there could come a time when he could ban people like Filipinos. But there are so many Filipino nurses there who are helping British nurses.’ 

The retired librarian added: ‘It is the prerogative of the British government to think of the welfare of their citizens. But to a certain extent they should also help people. No man is an island. And I think that is also true of a country.’

Mr Cayaban, 68, said the politician had only visited the Philippines once since marrying his sister in 1988. He said that during the visit, around two decades ago, Mr Batten did not discuss his political opinions or views with family members.

Frances Lina, who now works in the courts service, moved to the UK after completing a medical technologies course in Manila.

She was studying for a business course at the time of her marriage to Mr Batten. Her eldest sibling Florencia, 75, had earlier moved to the UK after training as a teacher in the Philippines. She still lives in London, where she is retired after working as a carer and shop-owner.

The siblings’ younger brother Benjamin also moved to the UK with his Filipina wife to work as a painter and decorator, before returning home several years later.

Mr Cayaban said: ‘They wanted to find work there because it was greener pastures and we belonged to a poor family. It was a challenge for them and we had no other choice.’

He said the siblings, whose parents worked as farmers, belonged to ‘the lower echelon of the [Philippines] society’.

His puzzlement was echoed by Alan Sked, UKIP’s first leader, who has said of Mr Batten’s negative views on immigrants taking British jobs: ‘I felt like saying: “Your wife has been working [here] since she came to Britain.” ’

Such a contradiction does not concern Gerard Batten as he busily rallies the far-Right to his flag. For now, the purple-clad enigma marches on.

Hi,

Ukip Leader Facing Press Ridicule

Although the party is languishing in the polls, and its leader’s obsession with the far-right is bringing it little more than ridicule, the rump of saloon bar propper-uppers otherwise known as UKIP is about to hit the news stands in a way which is already causing that leader considerable discomfort. Because it’s all about him.
I em not a racialist but, und zis is a big but …


The inmates of the Northcliffe House bunker – whether the paper concerned is the Daily Mail or Mail on Sunday is not yet clear – clearly do not have enough on their collective plates with Brexit. So they have decided to delve into the wacky world of Adolf von Batten, and what they have found there has been deemed newsworthy enough for it to be given significant prominence in a weekend edition of one of the two titles.

Exactly what the Mail titles may have in mind was outlined by John O’Connell of Far Right Watch, who told his followers “The Daily Mail or Mail on Sunday, or both, have a take-down prepared on #Ukip’s @GerrardBatten for this weekend. We hear there’s lots of new stuff, including criminality. Expect #Ukip head implosions and tantrums galore”. Criminality? Some may be surprised. They should not be.
It has been put to me on more than one occasion that Batten’s links to bent coppers are long-standing and potentially damaging to at least one Police force. It has also been put to me that he has been able to use these links to damage his rivals and keep the heat off himself. What Batten may not know is that the press also does links to bent coppers, and has done for decades. Why d’you think phone hacking nearly got covered up?
The Met knew it had enough evidence to sink the Murdoch empire. It pretended it didn’t. The Murdoch mafiosi was well in with the Met. They were not the only ones in the press pack to be so favoured. Anyone who thinks their Police contacts trump those of the press establishment is not dealing from a full deck.
So how has Batten reacted to the impending defenestration by the Rothermere goons? Simples. The idiot has admitted it’s on its way. “Not content with sending a ‘journalist’ thousands of miles to harass my wife’s family in the Philippines last week the Daily Mail has sent our Party Chairman a bunch of ludicrous questions about me. They plan more hatchet jobs. Not once have they ever asked me about Brexit”.
Ask yourselves why the Mail should dispatch someone to the Philippines. Clue: it’s not for the purposes of bringing the readers a heartwarming story of love across the national, and indeed racial, divide. Gerard Batten is about to be exposed and ridiculed big time, and there is nothing he can do about it. Except rant about the hated MSM.
If there is nothing in the Mail’s exposé, then he has nothing to worry about, and the story will die a death. If there is, UKIP will become even more of a laughing stock. And if he gets defamed in the process, well, tough titty Adolf. You and your pals don’t fret when you’re all doling that out to anyone else. What’s sauce for the goose, and all that.
Gerard Batten is about to follow Paul Nuttall into becoming the comedy leader of a comedy political party. It couldn’t happen to a more deserving bigot.

Hi,

UKIP leader Gerard Batten and two other UKIP MEPs (Stuart Agnew and Jane Collins) have joined Marine Le Pen’s ENF group in the European Parliament. Batten had resigned from Farage’s more moderate EFDD group in December to sit as an independent. The far right ENF group was founded in 2014 following discussions between Marine Le Pen and Geert Wilders, and consists of a number of quasi-fascist parties across Europe.

Hi,

Ukip leader dubbed ‘the mad old grandad’ is accused by former members of overseeing a ‘revolution’ to shift the party towards the far-Right

  • Gerard Batten has been accused of dramatically steering Ukip to the far-right 
  • His acceptance to take the job last year prompted a wave of resignations
  • Former leader Nigel Farage handed in his resignation due to Batten’s ‘flirtation with extremists’

For years, he was thought of by his Ukip colleagues as a ‘mad old grandad’ single-minded in his dislike of two things – the EU and Islam.

Former ‘harmless’ MEP Gerard Batten, 64, has now been accused of dramatically steering Ukip to the far-Right since taking over as leader.

His sudden ascent to the top job last year prompted a wave of resignations – including that of the party’s former leader, Nigel Farage – due to his flirtation with extremists.

Mr Batten’s recent decision to appoint former English Defence League leader Tommy Robinson as an adviser led campaigners to warn that the far-Right has been given a stage in mainstream British politics.

Former senior Ukip figures yesterday accused Mr Batten of deliberately staging a ‘revolution’ to shift the party’s focus from Brexit to a stance criticising Islam and multiculturalism.

An ex-MEP, who recently quit the party, said: ‘Many of Gerard’s beliefs would have been very well settled in the BNP.’

Mr Batten has previously courted controversy by describing Islam as a ‘death cult’ and calling for British Muslims to sign a charter of understanding in which they denounce violence.

His dramatic effect on the Ukip since taking over as leader in February 2018 came after years spent languishing on its fringes when colleagues said he became ‘obsessed’ with Islam.

Mr Batten first developed an interest in politics as a child, watching current affairs programmes about the Cold War at home in London’s Isle of Dogs.

As the son of a shipping clerk, he has described his childhood as typically working class. He landed his first job as a bookbinder at the age of 18 before becoming a BT salesman. While working for the telecoms giant Mr Batten met his wife Frances Lina, now 60, who had moved to the UK as an immigrant from the Philippines.

The couple, who married in 1988 while she was studying business, have two sons and live in a £630,000 terraced house in East London.

Mr Batten’s role as a trade union official at BT helped fuel a growing political interest. He later fondly recalled ‘violent arguments between me and the lefties’. In 1991 he joined the Anti-Federalist League, formed to campaign against the Maastricht Treaty.

Alongside Mr Farage and party founder Alan Sked, Batten helped to transform the body into Ukip two years later. Mr Sked, now professor emeritus at the London School of Economics, said: ‘When I set up Ukip he was a perfectly decent, moderate family man.’

But the academic, who left the party in 1997, said he was shocked years later to receive campaign literature from him. ‘It was Gerard Batten saying we should stop immigration and foreigners taking our jobs,’ said Mr Sked. ‘I felt like saying, “Your wife has been working [here] since she came to Britain”.’ Mr Sked raised alarm bells about Ukip’s current focus on Islam, adding: ‘He will take the party into a cul-de-sac and kill it.’

After Mr Batten became an MEP in 2004 party officials began to become alarmed about his views on Islam and he was almost deselected in 2014. Jonathan Arnott, a leading Ukip MEP who quit the party in January last year, said: ‘He sees everything as black and white – that either Muslims are good or they are bad. And he has decided they are bad.’

Mr Batten’s most controversial move has been his vocal support for Robinson. Mr Batten has claimed he could help transform Ukip into a ‘mass movement’.

Party officials have credited his decision to attract new supporters with boosting membership numbers from 18,000 last year to just under 27,000 now.

Hi,

The different lives of Simona Mangiante Papadopoulos

Lawyer, litigant, actress, artist, and model – the wife of the notorious Trump aide is full of intrigue

12 December 2018

 

Forget the Kardashians, or the Osbourne family, Cockburn predicts the next big name in TV will be the Papadopouloses, George and Simona. He’s the former Trump campaign aide who just got out of jail after admitting to lying to the FBI. She’s the sultry Italian blonde who’s now set her heart on a career in acting. Together, they are on a raging publicity drive.

A mini-documentary series following their lives as they settle down to conjugal life in Los Angeles is already being made. It’s not meant to be a reality show, but Simona clearly doesn’t mind the idea of fame. ‘Let’s start with Keeping Up with the Papadopouloses,’ she laughs to Cockburn. ‘The rest, we’ll see.’

Simona says she is looking forward to pursuing a Hollywood career now that she and her man are ‘at the end, I hope, of a dark period’. She’d already landed a part as Brigitte Bardot in an unfinished film called Affairs on Capri, directed by a British man called Paul Wiffen.

Wiffen, it turns out, is the former Chairman of UKIP London, a contributor to Russia Today, a fierce opponent of George Soros, and somebody who once attended a party with Anna Chapman, the former Russian intelligence agent turned media personality. That background will do nothing to quell rumors that somehow Simone Mangiante Papadopoulos is part of a sinister Kremlin plot

Wiffen laughs off the accusation. ‘It is a coincidence that appears to have more significance than it actually does,’ he says. ‘I’m sure people will say Putin is paying him. All I can say is that I wish I did have other sources of income to support my films.’ Wiffen said Affairs on Capri was ‘ultra low-budget’ and that he was using his income as a musician to pay for it. Indeed, he said, without Simona’s help, he may not have been able to make so much progress with filming the movie in Italy. Simona persuaded family and friends to put up members of the cast for filming. As for the idea that Simona is herself a Russian agent, Wiffen scoffs:  ‘It is completely ridiculous the thought that she is a Russian spy: I’ve met half her family.’

Alas, Simona’s relationship with George and the Mueller investigation got in the way of Simona’s debut. She had some passport difficulties, and now she’s now waiting for her green card, and can’t leave the US until she gets one. The one scene she did shoot, see above, was in fact filmed in San Diego by another director. ‘It’s now got to the stage where I’ve had to look for other people who look like Brigitte Bardot,’ says Wiffen, with regret.

Simona, for her part, seems to believe her BB role is complete. She’s got another part in a film, something to do with Colombia, which she didn’t want to discuss. She’s does modelling, too, for Leo Mazzotti on Venice Beach:

There’s more to Simona than meets the eye, that much is certain. She’s a woman of various talents. She also paints, and was kind enough to share her art with Cockburn:

She’s led different lives, too. She trained as a lawyer, and worked for the European Parliament. She reveals that she is currently suing the Parliament because, after her contract was terminated, her job was awarded to another unqualified woman who happened to be related to a senior EU official. ‘It was an unbelievable piece of nepotism,’ she says. ‘You cannot have this in a public institution.’

It was after leaving her European Parliament role that Simona started to work for Joseph Mifsud and the London Centre of International Law Practice. Papadopoulos did work there, too, and first approached her, she claims, on LinkedIn. ‘He was flirting,’ she says. Their meeting was not engineered by Mifsud, she insists. But even if her love life flourished in London, Simona claims she became ‘very frustrated’ working for Mifsud and soon handed her notice.

Simona speaks five languages, which, she says, is perhaps why her accent doesn’t sound very Italian. It’s not, she insists, because she is in fact a Russian spook. ‘I think people might muddle it up with The Godfather. I think people have a stereotype of Italian, which is completely different to what I am. Looks-wise and accent-wise, they can’t profile me as Italian. But I find it funny, this Russian theory.’

She grew up in Caserta, near Naples, but her voice is not from there, either. ‘Even when I speak Italian, I don’t have a very Neapolitan accent. But…I studied abroad. I studied in Milan.’

She says she is ‘a child of the European Union’ and wants the EU to move towards a United States of Europe.

Yet she also supports Brexit, and the policies of European populists such as Matteo Salvini and Marine Le Pen, and opposes the ‘defamation of our Christian roots’. ‘We are allowing too many people coming from Muslim countries — there is nothing wrong with being Muslim … [But] I think it is important to impose rules. … I’m in America. I’m an immigrant. But I respect the rules of this country…in this respect, I very much agree with the politics of Salvini and Marine Le Pen, and the European right. It’s not racist what I am talking about. It’s preservation.’’

To a cynical or paranoid ear, her politics might sound a little, well, Russia Today. Cockburn suggests that some people might accuse her of rehashing the Kremlin line on the EU. ‘That’s fabrication,’ she says. ‘I think someone, somewhere is paid to spread stuff about me. I think there are journalists who are working hard to undermine my credibility.’ She’s contemplated another legal action, against one journalist but she says she won’t name him. ‘Do I really want to waste my time? I can show a dozen times my Italian passport, they will still say I am Russian. So you know what? I don’t care.’

Speaking of that, she has been accused of misleading people about her age, modifying an image of her passport to make herself 34 when she is 37. ‘This is another stupidity,’ she snaps. ‘I was making jokes on the internet. I changed on the picture saying I was born in Moscow in 2005. I never lied. It was a provocation. Who cares if I am three years younger or older? If I wanted people to think I was younger I would have taken off three years, trust me.’

Cockburn is too much of a gent to press the point. For now, we’ll let Simona settle down to life with George under the glare of the cameras. The two have, according to Wiffen, a ‘tempestous’ relationship. The director says he spent a week with them on Ischia, and ‘they spent quite a lot of the week shouting at each other. They both have that Mediterranean temperament.’ Wiffen adds that ‘while she is very bright, George is not the sharpest tool. I am not sure he quite realized what he got caught up in.’

Cockburn hopes that shared drama has brought Mr and Mrs Papadopoulos closer. With such a colourful and camera-bold star character, there must be a few seasons in their reality series, surely?
