So Yet Another Ukip Effort To Bend The Truth In A Hagiography I Guess! First there was the stunningly tedious ‘Hard Pounding’ then a series by the affable Mark Daniels who sadly died CLICK HERE now presumably an attempt to sell the myth that Nigel Farage & Aaron Banks were in some way responsible for BreXit.

Hi,

so yet another Ukip effort to bend the truth in a hagiography I guess!

First there was the stunningly tedious ‘Hard Pounding’ then a series by the affable Mark Daniels who sadly died CLICK HERE, he was first hired in by Roger Knapman to write ‘Cranks & Gadflies’ and then retained by Nigel Farage to write a series of hagiographies passed off as autobiographies. Now presumably this latest hagiography will be an attempt to sell the myth that Nigel Farage & Aaron Banks were in some way responsible for BreXit.

It has been a well understood truism that ‘he who wins the war writes the history’, but nowadays, with the burgeoning of vanity publishing & short run publications, there is an increasing tendency to rush to print to grab the truth by the scruff of the neck and publish a book selling ones own spin, to lay claim to a hagiographical version of the truth. There are numerous journalists who moonlight writing or editing books and media, to deliver whatever myth the pay master wants delivered.

Presumably the bigger the payment the more prominent the author and/or journalist! No surprises there then.

I am however surprise that a front line journalist for a major National newspaper sat on the story of tyhe arrest she witnessed on the 22nd. July, only publishing on Friday 12th. August! It does of course show how readily news is manipulated to suit and I guess he who pays the piper calls the shots!

Daily Mail’s Farage/FBI Arrest “Scoop” Was an Inside Job

 
By Kieran Corcoran | 3:36 am, August 17, 2016

Saturday’s Daily Mail carried a surprisingly vivid account of the arrest of Nigel Farage’s aide, George Cottrell.

Cottrell, 22, was ambushed at Chicago’s O’Hare airport and led away by FBI agents on a variety of charges related to financial misconduct – including money laundering – several weeks ago.

  

Arrested Ukip/Farage aide George Cottrell with donor Arron Banks attending Andrew Marr programme a few weeks ago

The story, billed as an Exclusive by the Mail’s political editor-at-large Isabel Oakeshott, is surprisingly detailed in its recounting of the event.

Oakeshott

The Mail reported:

As they arrived in the US, Cottrell was briefly detained by customs officers in Chicago in what appeared to be a routine check before being allowed to continue his journey.

To Mr Farage’s shock, five FBI officers were waiting to meet Cottrell as they disembarked from their return flight from Cleveland to Chicago O’Hare on July 22, en route to Heathrow.

The distressed former Ukip leader – who knew nothing of his aide’s alleged illegal activities – was given no information about Cottrell’s arrest, and was forced to return to London without him.

If it seems almost as detailed as an eyewitness account, that’s because it is.

Heat Street can reveal that Oakeshott was at the airport with Farage and his entourage when the agents struck.

She had spent the earlier portion of the day watching Donald Trump at the Republican National Convention, and live-tweeted parts of his speech:

What a spectacle

 

Although the Mail makes no explicit reference to the fact, she was travelling with the group, which included Cottrell and Leave.EU spokesman Andy Wigmore.

Oakeshott was along for the ride as part of her efforts to co-write a book on the EU Referendum.

The tome has been described by insiders as a “hagiography” of UKIP.

The book’s existence was revealed recently in the diary pages of the Evening Standard – prompting Oakeshott to claim she is “just helping” and that the named authors will be Wigmore and Banks:

@IsabelOakeshott Looking forward to your Brexit book. When is publication?

Thanks for your interest @ESallyB – it’s @Arron_banks and @andywigmore ‘s book not mine – I’m just helping. As fast as we can write it!

Perhaps, but Heat Street understands that Oakeshott is in fact being paid a healthy fee for her help – and good luck to her.

But shouldn’t the Mail’s readers have been told that the author of its potentially serious crime story was in fact on the scene as the action unfolded, making nice with those closest to the suspect as part of a moonlighting exercise?

“Lisa has gained overwhelming support from across the UK to be the next leader of Ukip.

“These vile attacks on her are clearly just a childish attempt by some of her competitors who see her as the main contender. We’re busy fighting for a bright future for Ukip, so we’ll do what we’ve always done: rise above them”

What is it about the folk who have floated to the top of the septic tank that is Ukip? They fight like ferrets in a sack yet are all too willing to turn up in public slagging each other off in their nightwear!

Do you think any of them look like they have the vaguest similarity in look or style to anything that looks like a credible leader!

Hi,
yet again we have the sleaze side of Ukip floating to the top of their septic tank of ambition. Time and time again we all hear of the sleazy promotion of mistresses and the seedy old men seducing the naive young staff in Ukip – sadly one only has to walk through the EUropean Parliament for a few minutes to see the degeneracy as the youngsters beguile the fat old men to gain favour and promotion and ready access to the MEP’s expenses!
That Viagra is readily available on request for these flagging men on their EU based healthcare packages speaks volumes!
Yes indeed it is probably quite accurate to call Bill Etheridge a “dity disgusting cheat” as his current doxy has done on Twitter, but if they all told such truth in the EUropean Parliament the noise would be deafening! It is clearly considered one of the perks of elected office and public service, it is so common that it is rarely considered a story by the media!
This all so readily fulfills Nigel Farager’s game plan as the only slightly credible candidate was assured of being bypassed as we await the debacle to continue with his NEC not putting a foot wrong in carrying out his wishes, right down to his most loyal members resigning AND RETURNING! – with Nigel Farage ensuring he remains in the public eye, with his passe facial fungus designed to look like a failed Mexican drug dealer whilst his aide carries the can facing 21 charges with the FBI! – all keeping the door open for a return as leader – Yet again!

‘Disgusting cheat’ Wannabe Ukip leader’s fiancee brands him a ‘liar’ after Viagra find

THE FIANCEE of a UKIP leadership candidate has accused him of cheating in a furious Twitter rant after finding a box of half-empty Viagra in his car.

Lorraine Chew TWITTER/GETTY

FIANCEE: Lorraine Chew has started a rant against Bill Etheridge MEP on Twitter

MEP Bill Etheridge’s partner took to the social media site to rage against the politician, calling him a “dirty disgusting cheat”.

Lorraine Chew posted a photo of the half-empty packet of Viagra she found in his car and called him a “liar”.

She wrote to her 109 followers: “Getting out my fiancés car @BillDudleyNorth yesterday I find half a box of viagra dirty disgusting cheat you should be ashamed of yourself.” [sic]

Lorraine Chew TWITTER

MS CHEW: She claims she found Viagra in his car

Lorraine Chew TWITTER

PHOTO: Ms Chew snapped a pic of what she claims she found

Furious Ms Chew added later: “Yet he wants to be trusted to lead his party?

“He’s nothing but a liar and will do anything to get what he wants even backstab his friends.”

A few days before Ms Chew’s outburst, Mr Etheridge tweeted that he had apologised to his wife.

“I find half a box of viagra dirty disgusting cheat you should be ashamed of yourself”

Lorraine Chew

He wrote: “Apologised in my speech to @mzdior76 yesterday. Wrong to neglect those you love no matter how important a cause. Time to be mature.”

Mr Etheridge, whose policies include bringing back the death penalty and banning the burka, has been enjoying watching Andy Murray compete in Rio while the scandal unfolds.

On Sunday night he tweeted: “Andy Murray take a bow. Wonderful performance.”

Meanwhile his angry lover tweeted: “Apologised then f…d me over again…Hmmm can this man ever tell the truth”. [sic]

She later followed this up saying: “Someone is going to be very sorry.”

Lorraine Chew TWITTER

OUTBURST: Ms Chew suggested Mr Etheridge would even ‘backstab his friends’

Drama unfolded at Ukip’s leadership hustings last night as multiple witnesses said a senior Ukip activist “started screaming and shouting,” Guido Fawkes reports.

The activist was shouting at a rival camp accusing them of re-tweeting the offending public messages.

Ukip HQ then reportedly sent messages to all involved asking them to delete their tweets about the matter because they want “a fair and decent fight”.

Ukip approved parliamentary candidate Jason Mark Rutter, said in reply to Ms Chew’s comments: “The Ukip leadership contest is not the Jeremy Kyle show.

“We should not be personally attacking fellow members.”

Lorraine Chew TWITTER

TWEET: Ms Chew has shared the messages publically

Etheridge TWITTER

CONTEST: Mr Etheridge is standing for Ukip leadership

It comes as there are calls to have Nigel Farage back as Ukip leader.

The in an interview with the Sunday Times.

Mr Farage said: “If Brexit wasn’t delivered, then I would have to think seriously about plunging back in.”

Chew TWITTER

ANGRY: Ms Chew’s comments are still on Twitter

He added: “But I hope I don’t have to.”

Yesterday Ukip MEP Jonathan Arnott quit the race to succeed Mr Farage claiming he only had a chance of coming second.

He said: “There is no prize for a silver medal in a leadership contest.”

Bill Etheridge and his media team have been contacted for a comment.

It’s feudKIP! Leaked emails reveal a vicious war of words as the party’s money man plots against ‘corrupt old Tory’ Neil Hamilton

  • Leaked emails have revealed the full scale of civil war within UKIP 
  • Bankroller Arron Banks calls Neil Hamilton a ‘corrupt old Tory’
  • Another email appears to unveil plot to eject sole MP Douglas Carswell
  • Nigel Farage’s resignation in July has triggered a bitter power struggle 

Vicious feuding at the top of UKIP has been laid bare by leaked emails revealing the scale of the civil war that has engulfed the party following Nigel Farage’s resignation as leader.

In one exchange seen by The Mail on Sunday, UKIP’s main bankroller Arron Banks describes senior party figure Neil Hamilton as a ‘corrupt old Tory’ – prompting Hamilton’s formidable wife Christine to accuse the tycoon of being ‘vulgar’ and ‘grossly defamatory’.

Another leaked message from a member of the party’s ruling body appears to reveal a plot to eject the party’s sole MP, Douglas Carswell.

Farage’s resignation following the Brexit vote has triggered a bitter power struggle within UKIP.

Neil Hamilton, left with wife Christine, was branded a 'corrupt old Tory' in a leaked email by UKIP's main bankroller Arron BanksUKIP's sole MP Douglas Carswell appears to be facing a plot to eject him

Leaked emails have revealed the full scale of the UKIP civil war, with senior party figure Neil Hamilton, left with wife Christine, branded a ‘corrupt old Tory’ and MP Douglas Carswell, right, appearing to face a plot to eject him

The chaos has led his allies to conclude that the party needs a radical overhaul, either by sacking the governing National Executive Committee or even dissolving UKIP altogether and starting a new party.

The panic was compounded yesterday when it was revealed that one of Farage’s closest aides is facing years in a US jail after allegedly being caught in an FBI sting.

George Cottrell, 22, who had just started working in Farage’s private office, was arrested and led away in handcuffs as he and the former UKIP leader arrived in Chicago last month.

Cottrell is now in custody awaiting trial on 21 charges including attempted extortion, money laundering and fraud.

One email exchange seen by this newspaper, a pro-Farage member of the NEC appears to reveal the existence of a plot to eject Mr Carswell, who has been embroiled in a long-running feud with Farage and his allies in the party.

The message, sent to Nathan Gill, a fellow Farage supporter, states: ‘I am compiling the case against Carswell already. We should have the votes. 

‘The latest I heard is that he has called a branch meeting in Clacton [Carswell’s constituency in Essex] and expects to be reselected in spring next year. 

‘He has a Tory crony as chairman to make sure it happens… let’s hope he is toast by then.’

UKIP’S CIVIL WAR 

THAT INCENDIARY EMAIL…

Aaron Bank, the tycoon who has bankrolled UKIP and pro-Brexit campaigns to the tune of £6m

Hi Nathan. Corrupt old Tories never change… I’m sure he [Hamilton] will be caught doing something naughty with expenses if his wife doesn’t get there first! 

THE FARAGE CONNECTION

 I spoke to Nigel [Farage] as I know you are both working together on this and suggested it might be better that you gave up being an MEP…then I will have a clear run to get rid of Hamilton. Nigel said he would think about it.

  • The message by top UKIP figure to Gill reveals plot to oust Hamilton…

NEXT UP: KILL CARSWELL! 

 I’m compiling the case against Carswell already… [he] expects to be reselected in spring – let’s hope he is toast by then

  •  …and also to topple Douglas Carswell, the party’s only MP

The message goes on to suggest a plot is also under way to remove Mr Hamilton, an opponent of Mr Farage, with the NEC member saying: ‘I spoke to Nigel as I know you both are working together on this and suggested that it might be better that you gave up being an MEP… then… I will have a clear run to get rid of Hamilton. Nigel said he would think about it.’

The message was sent five days before Mr Farage resigned as party leader on July 4.

In another email to Gill, Banks complains about former Tory MP Neil Hamilton, who toppled Gill in May as leader of UKIP’s group in the Welsh Assembly.

The move meant that Hamilton’s salary rose by £20,000 to £84,000.

Banks wrote in the July 23 message: ‘Corrupt old Tories never change – it’s a disgrace that someone like Hamilton is even involved in the party. 

‘I wouldn’t let him get under your skin, I’m sure he will be caught doing something naughty with expenses, if his wife doesn’t get there first!’

Mr Hamilton was embroiled in a cash-for-questions scandal in 1994 while he was a Tory MP, and his wife campaigned alongside him when he lost his Tatton seat to former BBC journalist Martin Bell in 1997.

Banks’s message was passed on to Mrs Hamilton, who hit back by claiming that his remarks were ‘grossly defamatory’.

She wrote: ‘I would not normally bother to respond to vulgar abuse but, as you involve me and have copied it to others, I have no choice. 

‘I take grave exception to your crystal-clear innuendo that I would make false expenses claims… an apology would not come amiss.’

Banks, who has funded UKIP and pro-Brexit campaign groups to the tune of more than £6 million, replied: ‘I think your reputation and that of Neil’s is clearly understood.

The leaked email was sent by Arron Banks, left, to Nathan Gill, right, the party’s former Welsh Assembly leader before he was replaced by Hamilton

‘His ability stretched to losing the fourth safest Tory seat in the country with a 48 per cent swing to a journalist! Enjoy the trough while you can…’

In another email seen by this newspaper, Gill told Hamilton that it was a ‘disgrace’ that he lived in England while sitting in the Welsh Assembly in Cardiff.

Farage’s favoured successor, Steven Woolfe, was blocked from standing by the NEC last week on the grounds that the paperwork for his bid was submitted 17 minutes late. The current leadership favourite is UKIP MEP Diane James.

A source close to Farage said: ‘The party’s NEC as currently constituted manages to be both over-powerful and completely incompetent.’

A spokesman for UKIP declined to comment.

Hi,
a measure of just how attrociously badly led Ukip has been for many years is not just the obviouse realisation that even with Nigel Farage having quit as leader he is still controlling his party – but you will note the utter chaos of its NEC & their lack of competence – their fantasy pilot & his dating site con act of their Chairman Paul Oakden and not only is Nigel Farage’s closest aide under the custody of the FBI but it was Nigel Farage’s records that were seized when he and George Cottrell were together in America about to leave – after Cottrell’s bungled drug deal & efforts to blackmail and intimidate whilst they were there!
Then consider the party is broke with an overspend of £850,000 despite the massive value of bribes/(salaries & expenses) from the EU which runs to £Millions a year + the £Millions Farage receives as leader of the EFDD, and there have been no murmurs of his intention to resign frtom this comfy and well funded post.
Then consider that as a party that made much of being anti membership of the EU they spent a paultry £55,000 on supporting the Referendum and had done all they could to prevent the Petition organised by Nikki Sinclaire which had forced the debate to Leave-The-EU on David Cameron & incurred his first major rebellion that led him to include a promise of a finite IN/OUT Referendum in The Tory Manifesto at the last General Election!
Just where has all the money gone? It runs to many £Millions so Draw your own conclusions! In drawing your own conclusion you will note the paucity of donations from Ukip MEPs and staff reflected on the Electoral Commission’s roll of donors!

Accounts reveal Ukip ended last year £850,000 in deficit

The UK Independence Party ended last year more than £850,000 in deficit, according to its latest accounts that show how the party’s finances dwindled after the 2015 election and in the run-up to the referendum campaign.

The party spent £6.7m in the year, more than its £5.8m overall income, as the cost of the general election and a 4.5pc fall in membership numbers took its toll.

Ukip held onto one parliamentary seat in May 2015, as Douglas Carswell kept the constituency of Clacton. Mark Reckless lost his seat to the Conservatives, the party he left to join Ukip. 

Donations overall fell 18pc to £4.4m last year and the party booked no revenue from its online shop, which generated £119,000 from selling Ukip merchandise in 2014, after it was hived off into a separate commercial entity.

Nigel Farage
Nigel Farage CREDIT: STEVE FINN

As a result of its deficit during the year, the party’s funds were £540,000 in the red, compared to a cash pile of £285,000 at the end of 2014.

Ukip recently appointed new chairman Paul Oakden as it looks to replace Nigel Farage as leader, in the wake of the vote for the UK to leave the European Union.

The six leadership candidates do not include Mr Carswell, who along with other parliamentary candidates spent £3.2m on election expenses during last year.

The party also spent £65,000 on membership fees for Europe of Freedom and Direct Democracy, its political bloc within the European Parliament. During the year it also spent a mere £55,751 on referendum expenses, as Brexit-supporting campaigns such as Vote Leave and Leave.EU took a greater role in the debate.

The Corruption In UKip Is Quite Astonishing When You Start To List It & the attraction of Walter Mitty characters is little help!

Hi,
I posted this Tweet a little while ago shortly after posting about Nigel Farage’s aide George Cottrell’s arrest by the FBI CLICK HERE:

INTERESTING: One of ‘s leadership contenders would SEEM to have invented a Degree & share an iffy CV with an American of same name!

I appreciate it is more than somewhat enigmatic but as yet, as I am hopefull that the media will run with it I have undertaken not to publish the full facts I have discovered – or the details of a senior UKip MEP who claims to have been a University lecturer yet I can only find a record of one GCSE in Social Sciences attributted to him & can find no record of a lecturer of his name  at any Uni.!

UKip seems to be a magnet for Walter Mitty charlatans – such as those who claim to have been Barristers yet do not appear on the public lists & those who gave up glowing City careers to join UKip – even those who purchase ‘Freeman of The City of London’ certificates – another classic you may remember this web site exposed was the total tosh that David Bannerman tried to pass off as his CV when he duped Roger Knapman.

Then again you will remember our exposing of the criminal Tom Wise & Lindsey Jenkins who were both charged with fraud, a fraud he eventually went to prison for and of course the exposing of the fact that Roger Knapman’s family were involved in People Traffiking and the notorious scandal of his attic full of Poles.

Of course there was the exposure of the lies regarding the £11K Nigel Farage claimed to have given to The Metric Martyrs but did not & was ordered to repay to The EU!

Not to mention the publicity we gave to the fact that Nigel Farage was boasting how he had been overpaid expenses by around £2Million at a Press Association lunch some 7 or 8 years ago, and of course you will remember we exposed the fact that his Constituency Office was funded by Julia Longhurst a UKip donnor.

Also of course it was this web site that exposed the fact that Nigel Farage had set up a bank account in the tax haven of The Isle of Man & paid £1/4Million into it to avoid British tax.

This blog also exposed the fact that less than 10% of the money collected in for UKip via Ashford call center was ever paid into UKip. You may remember Nigel Farage described as ‘UKip’s most successfull money raising scheme ever’ (perhaps he should have said ‘scam’.

It was also this web site that exposed the corruption and lies of Douglas Denny and his efforts with Nigel Farage to rig UKip elections.

Also we published the report by UKip’s returning Officer Piers Merchant & his report on UKip corruption CLICK HERE

We also published John Petley’s detailed eviceration of UKip CLICK HERE

We also published the resignation letters of Marcus Stead, Niall warry, Richard Suchorzewski and many others which gave grteat insight into the lies, bullying, duplicity & corruption that is UKip, for more details CLICK HERE

You may also remember the fact that having lost a Court case atempting to close my web sites and the publication of facts about UKip and its people, UKip failed to honour their debt to me of £13,500 + interest CLICK HERE & HERE but I guess it is rather fancifull to speak og UKip and honour in the same sentence!

You will also remember it was this web site that exposed the fraud of Derek Clarke an expenses fiddle that was corruptly never prosecuted but led to his having to pay 10s of £1,000 back to the EU.

You may also remember the publicity this web site gave to the electoral fraud of Malcolm Pearson who admitted laundering monetary donations to UKip through his organisation Global Britain! We also published the criminal scam UKip’s MEP Stuart Agnew was involved in as exposed by the Times.

Also we publicised the scam David Bannerman & Stuart Agnew were involved in frtaudulently obtaining money from the EU to pay Peter Reeve for his UKip political activities!

It was also this web site that published the strange details regarding Diane James some years ago in 2013  CLICK HERE

Then of course you wi9ll remember we published the details of the lies Nigel Farage’s doxy Annabelle Fuller told about Andrew Bridgen MP when she claimed he had sexually assaultedf her when she stole material from his flat including his Government Blackberry, which she downloaded & boasted of, and his House of Commons Security Pass.

We also exposed and published the fact that Annabelle Fuller had published UKip confidential material on the web, when in a position of trust, to harm a UKip candidate in an election.

It was this site that exposed the corruption and lies of John Ison, long before he was exposed in Court as with John Ison’s collusion in criminality with and on behalf of Nigel Farage, which has now also been addressed in Court with tape recordings of their conversations having been played!

You will also remember the exposure of the scurrilous behaviour of UKip when Nigel Farage, Mark Croucher and David Lott ran that scam petition, some years ago, as a money spinner, seemingly for themselves. We also exposed the grave doubts of the claims of Gerard Batten regarding Jasna Badzak and the apparent collusion between corrupt police officers, the Met and UKip.

You may also remember when I exposed the dishonesty of Gerard Batten when he was bragging he would destroy me and shut down my web sites but his lies to the police collapsed on investigation of the simplest nature!

Then there was the sad sick incident surrounding Gawain Towler’s wife’s allegations of his sexual behaviour with his daughter and his braggadocio when in his cups regarding his homosexuality and his libertine approach to sexuality and loyalty and his disregard for his partners sexual wellbeing! The firs item being that which had him deselected and dumped by the UKip SW Regional Committee as a candidate!

Sadly he left his wife who then died of cancer and his children are, I understand, being raised by Grandparents – One wonders will he seek to interfere in the upbringing of the next two children he had now that he has seemingly left his second wife, the Australian Doctor and has now, I understand, recently become engaged to some unfortunate and clearly gullible young woman in her mid 30s! His libertine and louche behaviour bodes ill for this new relationship also I feel.

We also have shown conclusively that Nigel Farage & UKip did much to try to sabotage the Referendum and had no part in ensuring an EU In/Out Referendum was granted – just as we showed Nigel Farage & UKip took absolutely no action to try to prevent the new EU Constitution which eventually morphed into the Lisbon Treaty.

So minded of these facts, and so much more I have publicised, you may well find it expedient to pay assiduous attention to this site and some of my others to keep up with the lies, corruption, dishonesty, fraud and character of UKip and its senior members.

Numbers following my sites has never been a concern, it is the calliber of those who follow, many of whom are media, and the fact that it provides an archive of facts, details, articles and contemporary views and opinions that counts, I believe.

When able I will add the details pertaining to the somewhat strange claims of the leadership candidate exposed at the start of this posting!

Nigel Farage With His Aid George Cottrell When He Was Arrested In Chicago on 21 criminal charges by the FBI!

Hi,
when reading this article there will be those who are sufficiently well informed of the antics of UKips leader (owner) in the past. Those who will be aware tjhat Nigel Farage was far from trustworth in the distant past when his Father, Guy Farage, a stock broker (professional gambler) and all too often hopeless drunk, sponsored his son and when Nigel Farage was fired by the French bank for whom he worked for unreliaqble behaviour and habitually returning late and the worse for drink after self indulgent lunches.
Nigel and his brother also worked for a period for American owned Refco in London, that period was curtly curtailed when the directors of Refco were prosecuted for sharp practice and went to prison.
I am unaware as to whether Nigel Farage has as yet settled his large debts accrued whilst working in the City! Though we did note that he set out to avoid British tax by opening a bank account in the Isle of Mann tax haven in the name ‘Farage Educational Trust’ and on one occasion deposited £1/4 Million into the account! Though he suibsequently lied to the media about the account!
‘Strange’ how Nigel Farage is so frequently alongside and deeply involved with criminals yet always manages to avoid arrest! Even on such matters as the debt incurred on his behalf of some £13,500 owed to me when Mark Croucher lost the Court case he brought CLICK HERE & HERE to try to bankrupt me and shut down the steady flow of facts about UKip and the low lifes and scoundrels in their ranks, which I publish on the internet.
Nigel Farage has not even been charged for his vicarious involvement in criminal breeches of the Computer Act and burglary as admitted by John Ison in open Court etc. etc. etc.
When one’s bag carrier is a criminal and your due dilligence has been incompetent you may well find your bags are at risk – one wonders just how embroilled Farage himself is in Cottrell’s criminality and what indiscresions Cottrell may have placed on the record on Farage’s, now confiscated, computer!
It is interesting to note that having flown to America to attend the Republican Congress Nigel Farage failed to meet with Donald Trump which must be rather demeaning for him when you consider the meetings Nikki Sinclaire has had with both Hillary & Bill Clinton when on similar visits. Though to be fair Nikki Sinclaire does have both the experience and the skills to have been an asset and worked on various US election campaigns!
Here again is Nigel Farage alongside a member of his own staff when they were arrested:

Farage aide held in US over money laundering claims: Son of glamour model who once dated Prince Charles facing years in jail after ‘offering his services on the dark web’  

  • George Cottrell was arrested and led away at Chicago’s O’Hare airport 
  • Cottrell was getting off a flight with former UKIP leader Nigel Farage
  • In custody awaiting trial on 21 charges including attempted extortion

One of Nigel Farage’s closest aides faces years in a US jail after allegedly being caught in an FBI sting.

George Cottrell was arrested and led away in handcuffs as he and the former Ukip leader got off a flight in Chicago.

Cottrell, who runs Mr Farage’s private office, is in custody awaiting trial on 21 charges including attempted extortion, money laundering and fraud.

The 22-year-old, whose former glamour model mother once dated Prince Charles, is accused of offering to launder money for drug traffickers after advertising his services on the ‘dark web’ – websites that offer privacy because they cannot be traced and need special software to access, some of which are frequented by paedophiles, criminals, hackers and terrorists.

But the ‘drug traffickers’ he is alleged to have dealt with were undercover FBI agents.

Cottrell, grandson of late Yorkshire landowner Lord Manton, was arrested last month as he and Mr Farage were returning from a series of engagements at the Republican Convention in Cleveland, Ohio.

A trusted member of Mr Farage’s inner circle, Cottrell had just agreed to take on a permanent role organising the Ukip MEP’s diary and dealing with media inquiries.

His email accounts, which include details of many of Mr Farage’s day-to-day arrangements, have been frozen.

Court documents filed in the US allege that Cottrell was offering money laundering services on the dark web using the alias ‘Bill’.

When contacted in 2014 by FBI agents pretending to be drug traffickers, he promised to launder their cash for a fee in ‘complete anonymity and security’ through his offshore accounts, the documents claim.

Following a meeting with the undercover agents in Las Vegas, Cottrell arranged for them to send him £15,500, which he planned to pocket, the indictment alleges. 

He is alleged to have then attempted to blackmail the ‘drug traffickers’ by demanding £62,000 in the form of bitcoin – a virtual online payment system – saying he would alert the authorities if they refused.

Cottrell was believed by associates to be worth £250million through a family trust fund and had been working for Mr Farage for free.

A trusted member of Nigel Farage’s inner circle, Cottrell had just agreed to take on a permanent role organising the Ukip MEP’s diary and dealing with media inquiries.

But the court documents claim he had a ‘serious, years-long gambling problem, which inherently suggests a strong possibility of irrational risk taking’.

The US District Court in Illinois remanded Cottrell in custody while criminal proceedings continue, ruling that he posed a ‘serious flight risk’. 

The detention order filed in the court said that Cottrell had recently changed his name, which he claimed was to distance himself from previous involvement in political activities in the UK, an explanation the court did not find ‘credible’.

Cottrell also claimed he lived with his parents near Evesham, Worcestershire, despite being listed as living at a £2.5million flat in Kensington, West London.

His mother, Fiona Cottrell, was the Penthouse ‘pet of the month’ in October 1973, under the pseudonym Frances Cannon, describing herself as ‘daughter of a landowner’. 

The images were reprinted in the magazine in 1977 after she was linked romantically to Prince Charles.

Cottrell’s uncle is Lord Hesketh, a colourful hereditary peer who set up a Formula One team in the 1970s and was a Tory minister under Baroness Thatcher.

A former Conservative Party treasurer, he defected to Ukip in 2011. Cottrell was expelled from the exclusive Malvern College before sitting his A-levels.

He did not complete his education, deciding to go straight into what he has described as ‘private banking’.

His arrest came three weeks after the Brexit victory in the EU referendum, as he accompanied Mr Farage to talk to US media about Brexit.

They flew from London Heathrow to Chicago’s O’Hare airport, from where they had a connecting flight to Cleveland.

As they arrived in the US, Cottrell was briefly detained by customs officers in Chicago in what appeared to be a routine check before being allowed to continue his journey.

He and Mr Farage spent three days at the Republican Convention, where they had a packed schedule of television appearances and meetings with US senators as well as discussions with aides to presidential candidate Donald Trump.

It now appears that Cottrell was being watched by FBI officers throughout the trip.

To Mr Farage’s shock, five FBI officers were waiting to meet Cottrell as they disembarked from their return flight from Cleveland to Chicago O’Hare on July 22, en route to Heathrow. 

The distressed former Ukip leader – who knew nothing of his aide’s alleged illegal activities – was given no information about Cottrell’s arrest, and was forced to return to London without him.

The FBI has frozen all Cottrell’s email accounts, leaving Mr Farage without access to his electronic diary. Four days after he was seized, Cottrell appeared briefly in court in Chicago.

An FBI spokesman in Ohio confirmed that George Swinten Cottrell was arrested on July 22 and was due to be extradited to Phoenix, Arizona. 

A Ukip spokesman said: ‘George was an unpaid and enthusiastic volunteer for the party over the period of the referendum.

‘We are unaware of the details of the allegations excepting that they date from a time before he was directly involved in the party.’ 

NAME-DROPPING ARISTO WHOSE RACY MUM CAUGHT THE EYE OF PRINCE CHARLES

By Richard Kay

Editor at Large

Friends of George Cottrell say he has always wanted to make something of his life – and that he was determined any success would be through his own efforts and not because of who he was.

Not that he was beyond a bit of name-dropping when the occasion demanded.

He claimed, for instance, that his godfather was the secretive billionaire currency trader Joe Lewis, owner of Tottenham Hotspur Football Club, and suggested that he was the beneficiary of a £250million family trust fund.

Separating fact from fiction, however, is a different matter. For young George likes to construct an air of mystery around his activities and indeed his background. Unlike most young men of his age he has no social media profile. Nor does he upload pictures of his private life or of his friends.

Penthouse pet: Fiona Cottrell in the 70s

He claims that he was used to handling large sums of money because as a 12-year old his ‘Irish’ racing uncles regularly despatched him to the bookies with bundles of notes as they drank in bars on the racetracks.

But who might these Irish kinsmen be? For Cottrell’s mother Fiona, who once bared all for adult magazine Penthouse and was pursued by a youthful Prince Charles, is the daughter of soap tycoon and Yorkshire landowner Lord Manton.

George’s father Mark is a former bobsleigh competitor who dreamed of representing Britain in the Olympic Games and went to Gordonstoun, where he was a contemporary of Prince Andrew.

One of George’s uncles is the colourful former Tory grandee and one-time treasurer Lord Hesketh, who famously defected to Ukip in 2011.

Alexander Hesketh, who set up a Formula One racing team recruiting James Hunt in the 1970s and who is married to Fiona’s older sister Claire, did, however, once own a racecourse – Towcester in Northamptonshire.

But it was sold along with everything else when he was forced to flog off the family’s nearby baroque stately home, Easton Neston in 2005.

Chain-smoking Cottrell, 22, claims he was expelled from Malvern College, where fees for boarders are £36,000 a year, before taking his A-levels and did not go to university. He told one figure that despite this he went straight into ‘private banking.’

Contacted at the family home near Evesham, Worcestershire, yesterday George’s 62-year-old mother said: ‘I never speak to the newspapers,’ and hung up.

She was not always so reticent. In 1974 she was draped naked, apart from a pink necklace, displaying her 38-23-35 figure across 11 pages of Penthouse.

Using the pseudonym Frances Cannon, Fiona described herself as the ‘daughter of a landowner.’

In the accompanying text the former debutante offered some pert observations. ‘My parents let me grow up believing my body is beautiful and sex in the right circumstances is wonderful.’

That might have been the end of the matter had Fiona not, some three years later, attracted the admiring eye of the Prince of Wales after meeting at a weekend house party when he was on a flying course at RAF Cranwell in Lincolnshire.

Alas his ‘cautious and careful’ approach in attempting to woo her was his downfall. Fiona was not the kind to sit waiting for the phone to ring.

When he finally did, she thought it was a prank and told him she already had a date with Mark Cottrell, whom she went on to marry in 1978.

With his uncle’s political connections, it was perhaps no surprise that the stocky George, who has a sister Laura, 28, should find himself offering his services to then Ukip leader Nigel Farage.

At the time of his arrest last month he had just agreed to take on a permanent role organising Mr Farage’s diary and dealing with media inquiries. He had been working for him for free.

Mr Farage, who likes to take troubled types under his wing, felt that working for the party gave the young man a purpose he otherwise lacked.

‘They had done their due diligence on George before agreeing to hire him and found nothing to worry about,’ assured an insider.

Last night that reassurance was looking rather hollow.

Farage’s fascist past? Nigel boasted about his NF initials and sang ‘gas them all’, claims schoolfriend

Exclusive: ‘I knew you – I remember your interest in the National Front. I want the nation to see you as I do.’ New claims of former Ukip leader’s ‘dark’ past

Nigel Farage was proud at the height of Britain’s far right movement that his initials NF also stood for National Front, according to a close school friend who after years of silence says he now wants the public to understand more about the man.

He also claims the teenage Mr Farage sang “gas ‘em all, gas ‘em all”, a neo-Nazi song about Jewish people.

The former friend attended fee-paying Dulwich College in south London with the ex-Ukip leader in the late Seventies and early Eighties and says he has kept quiet about his memories until now, in part out of a sense of loyalty.

For many years, he observed the rise of the politician’s career proud they had shared schooldays together. At times he even cheered Mr Farage’s trademark onslaughts in the European Parliament by saying “good on Nigel”.

But over the past several months the successful professional has become alarmed by divisions he believes are being created in Britain partly as a result of the rhetoric and imagery used by the MEP.

When he saw him standing in front of a Leave.EU poster of refugees with the words “Breaking Point” during the latter stages of the Brexit campaign, he thought it was time to speak out. 

At that moment, he remembered the teenage Nigel who he says would provoke and “enchant” teachers and pupils alike and supported the British 1930s fascist Oswald Mosley. 

His former friend initially planned to identify himself, but after the killing of MP Jo Cox in June he claims he is fearful of potential repercussions from fanatics.

He has now written an open letter to Mr Farage in The Independent. In it, he says he does not believe his former classmate and confidant has any sympathy with fascist views today but he has been considering how much his views have evolved between his youth and middle age.

He argues it was wrong of their former headteacher, the late David Emms, to brush off his extreme views as “naughtiness” and that there are lessons to be learned for how schools deal with extreme behaviour today.

He said were a Muslim pupil were to express extreme Islamist views at school now, they would be dealt with immediately and referred to mentoring programmes. 

He said it is to be hoped the same applies to non-Muslim extremism. “Let’s hope schools are now taking action on the kind of comments you made at school,” he writes in his letter. 

He says they were close friends in their teenage years.

“I remember the way you enchanted people at school — senior teachers and fellow pupils alike,” he writes. “Your English project on fishing enthralled everyone. I remember mine being particularly boring. You were and are a great speaker, for sure.

“But I also remember other, darker things about you. There was a time when I used to look back and dismiss much of them as the amusing naughtiness of teenagers as we were, much like our old headmaster David Emms did. 

“I haven’t chosen to write before, but I simply have to now. I now wonder if there is a connection between you at 16 and you at 52. There are things that tell me your views might not have changed that much despite the many years.”

It is not the first time Mr Farage has faced accusations of holding fascist views at school. In 2013, a letter emerged from a former Dulwich College teacher, Chloe Deakin, to then headteacher Mr Emms, who died earlier this year. According to the letter written in June 1981 – two months after the Brixton riots a couple of miles away – she pleaded unsuccessfully with Mr Emms to reverse his decision to make Nigel a prefect. She said colleagues had told her he held “publicly professed racist and fascist views” and that he had once marched through a Sussex village singing Hitler Youth songs.

When confronted by these accusations in 2013, Mr Farage said: “I don’t know any Hitler youth songs, in English or German… . Any accusation I was ever involved in far right politics is utterly untrue.

“Of course I said some ridiculous things, not necessarily racist things. It depends how you define it.”

Other former pupils of the school told Channel 4 in 2013 that Mr Farage’s views were “merely Thatcherite”. 

Another man who also knew him at school has told The Independent Mr Farage became a target for some Left-leaning teachers because he would embarrass them in pupils versus staff debates.

 

However, Mr Farage’s former friend now suggests there may have been more to the story. He writes today: “But I do remember you singing the song starting with the words ‘gas them all, gas ‘em all, gas them all’.  

“I can’t forget the words. I can’t bring myself to write the rest of it for it is more vile than anything the teachers at Dulwich would ever have been aware of.”

He said the lyrics were sung to the George Formby tune ‘Bless ‘em all’.

He adds: “We hear much of ‘due diligence’ in today’s financial world, but had the teachers and headmaster of Dulwich investigated the concerns around your appointment as a prefect with your peers – as they would hopefully today in similar circumstances – they might have made a very different decision. 

“They might not have brushed them under the carpet; they might have made you think a little more about your rhetoric; history might be a little different today.

“For I vividly recall the keen interest you had in two initials of your name written together as a signature and the bigoted symbol that represents from the many doodles over your school books. Nigel Farage, NF, National Front. I remember watching you draw it. Just a laugh, eh, Nigel?

“…In April 1981, we had the Brixton riots. They happened just up the road from our school. The images of rioting people, many of them from the racial minorities, made it easy to discriminate; many people did back then. 

“The National Front was hugely popular by comparison to today. So, turbulent times back then… but have you not moved on?”

The neo-Nazi National Front was at its peak during the years Mr Farage was at school in the mid-late Seventies when it had 14,000 paid-up members. They were frequently involved in violent clashes with the police and the organisation had developed sister groups in New Zealand, South Africa, Australia and Canada. It had also campaigned against Britain’s membership of the EEC.

Mr Farage’s former friend told The Independent his decision to speak out was not motivated by any anger over June’s vote to leave the EU. 

He said although he voted Remain, he was a “reluctant Remainer” and that he sympathised with some of Mr Farage’s concerns on immigration.

However, he writes: “From being a real fan, I found myself thinking more and more with every appearance of yours on television that we must be aware of false prophets. Notably, the image of a desperate line of refugees, photographed not even in England, showed me that Nigel Farage has perhaps not changed that much.  

“These people were used as live currency to further your cause to represent Britain being at breaking point from European immigrants – although those people were from outside of Europe. The imagery of a loss of control, hopelessness, of our own politicians not caring for us is the stuff of two world wars.  I can hear you say “useless” in the way you used to. 

“As I have said, the immigration issue surely needs fixing, but you have shamefully used this picture.

“Seeing your gloating display post referendum at the European Parliament just rammed home the point: it seemed here we had a bit of the Nigel I knew at school. Yes, you’ve fought 20 years and no one took you seriously – but let us have some humility.”

Mr Farage stepped down as Ukip leader days after the victorious Brexit campaign in June. He is due to start a tour of European countries next month when he will advise other Eurosceptic parties on how to follow Ukip’s lead. 

His former friend writes today: “I’m sure the neo-Nazis in Golden Dawn in Greece will cheer you loudly. The people of Greece, beware.

“…I think you’re a troublemaker. You were at school, you are now. But we need to beware of what’s being whipped up.”

Mr Farage did not directly respond to the claims made by his former friend. Instead, he said: “To say that this is going over old ground is an understatement. The period during which I was at Dulwich was highly politically charged with the rise of Thatcherism to the Brixton riots just down the road. 

“There were many people of that time who were attracted to extreme groups on both sides of the debate.”

He added: “Whoever sent you this must be a little of touch to say that I supported Oswald Mosley as he believed in a United States of Europe. Some people need to get over Brexit.”

Dulwich College did not respond to a request for comment.

‘Dear Nigel… I wish your teenage fascist views had been dealt with. History could have been very different’

Exclusive: Schoolfriend breaks 34-year silence and pens open letter to the man who brought about Brexit

READ NIGEL FARAGE’S RESPONSE TO THIS LETTER HERE

Dear Nigel,

I won’t give my name – my family isn’t even aware I’m writing this and I wish to protect them. But I have a funny feeling you’ll know who I am. 

At school, at Dulwich College in the late Seventies, we were close friends in our teenage years. I stayed at your house once – your mother did do a fantastic great British breakfast for us.

I remember the way you enchanted people at school, senior teachers and fellow pupils alike. Your English project on fishing enthralled everyone. I remember mine being particularly boring. You were and are a great speaker, for sure.

But I also remember other, darker things about you. There was a time when I used to look back and dismiss much of them as the amusing naughtiness of teenagers as we were, much like our old headmaster David Emms did. 

I haven’t chosen to write before, but I simply have to now. I now wonder if there is a connection between you at 16 and you at 52. I don’t believe you have fascist sympathies now, but there are things that tell me your views might not have changed that much despite the many years.

I think there comes a time – however difficult it may be – when enough is enough. I remember those school days in the UK. As you know, teachers were concerned. You’ll remember being confronted three years ago by journalists who had a letter from the school teacher Chloe Deakin to Mr Emms. You’ll remember she was concerned about “fascist views”. Other teachers also had concerns, but none of them would have known you like your own peers, the friends you used to spend time with.

We hear much of “due diligence” in today’s financial world, but had the teachers and headmaster of Dulwich investigated the concerns around your appointment as a prefect with your peers – as they would hopefully today in similar circumstances – they might have made a very different decision. They might not have brushed them under the carpet; they might have made you think a little more about your rhetoric; history might be a little different today.

For I vividly recall the keen interest you had in  two initials of your name written together as a signature and the bigoted symbol that represents from the many doodles over your school books. Nigel Farage, NF, National Front. I remember watching you draw it. Just a laugh, eh, Nigel? 

As the son of an immigrant family, your frequent cry of “Send em home” and mention of the name Oswald Mosley didn’t mean much to me either until much later when I learnt of the British Fascists. 

national-front-logo.jpg
The former friend says he saw Nigel Farage draw a version of the National Front logo on his college books

I remember you spending hours with spit and polish producing what were unquestionably the brightest pair of CCF (Combined Cadet Force) army boots in school. I also remember your snuff tobacco that you kept hidden from unwitting teachers.

But I also remember something altogether more alarming: the songs you chanted at school. In her letter Chloe Deakin mentioned reports of you singing Hitler Youth songs, and when you were confronted by that, you denied it. 

But I do remember you singing the song starting with the words “gas them all, gas ‘em all, gas them all”. I can’t forget the words. I can’t bring myself to write the rest of it for it is more vile that anything the teachers at Dulwich would ever have been aware of.

I too think that things can be in the past and that people grow up from being naughty schoolchildren. Heaven help us if they didn’t, let’s face it, but heaven help us if we believe all children do. 

 

As someone wanting the EU to be challenged more robustly, I found myself thinking “Good on Nigel” for the amusement your speeches in the European Parliament gave us. Let’s face it, mass migration and its management by the EU has been a consistent mess of mixed messages. You’re absolutely right to challenge the EU – it’s just people need to see the full picture — before aligning themselves to strangers, however charming their messages are.

From being a real fan, I found myself thinking more and more with every appearance of yours on television that we must be aware of false prophets. Notably, the image of a desperate line of refugees, photographed not even in England, showed me that Nigel Farage has perhaps not changed that much.  

These people were used as live currency to further your cause to represent Britain being at breaking point from European immigrants – although those people were from outside of Europe. The imagery of a loss of control, hopelessness, of our own politicians not caring for us is the stuff of two world wars. I can hear you say “useless” in the way you used to. 

As I have said, the immigration issue surely needs fixing, but you have shamefully used this picture.

Seeing your gloating display post-referendum at the European Parliament just rammed home the point: it seemed here we had a bit of the Nigel I knew at school. Yes, you’ve fought 20 years and no one took you seriously – but let us have some humility. We now learn you will start touring other EU countries, beginning in Athens in September, to encourage them to follow your lead. I’m sure the neo-Nazis in Golden Dawn in Greece will cheer you loudly. The people of Greece, beware.

Oh, for the record, I’m not a blind Remainer. I’m more a 51 per cent reluctant Remainer. Yes, I see the many 21st century challenges with which the EU has failed to deal – immigration and “over-involvement” being the most obvious. 

Who cannot see that having no common policy to deal with hundreds of thousands of immigrants is going to strain the most robust of institutions to its limits? Who cannot see that criminal elements within those hundreds of thousands are not going to use the cover of desperate people for their own personal gain or distorted beliefs?

But then again, don’t some politicians use the cover of people’s strife for their own gain or beliefs? Would we as a nation not be alarmed if we were to find out that a Muslim politician or teacher for example had made reference to forced repatriation or joked about beheading all non-Muslims as a teenager at school? Let’s hope schools are now taking action on the kind of comments you made at school.

I’m also not a perfect person. I too couldn’t help thinking “must we have quite so many people coming to Europe”. 

But let me indulge you in a story. On a recent trip to Berlin, I found myself in a wonderful park in Spandau on the banks of the Havel.  It was a windy day and a chap next to me was meticulously laying out some papers on a bench. But then a gust of wind sent them a few metres, happily straight into my hands. 

He was incredibly grateful and strangely offered me some orange juice and a banana. I felt a little embarrassed.

And then I realised the papers on the bench were in fact asylum papers and the orange juice and banana in a park in Berlin meant more to him than I could ever imagine. He was a teacher of physics or something similar; it was the only thing I could deduce from his broken English.

I tried a little German but to this he just shrugged his shoulders and gave a hopelessly lost smile. He was a Syrian filling out papers for his family and, had my appointment contact not have arrived a few minutes later, I could have spent all day right there.

Perhaps he was in that infamous Leave poster you exploited to such effect? It’s easy to tar everyone with the same brush just because of a few criminals. 

But neither am I someone with rose-tinted spectacles. Although this meeting in Berlin was a wake-up moment for me, I also know there are serious issues for Europe to solve. We really have been let down by our European leaders.  

Perhaps people found no other way to represent their dissatisfaction with Europe and the very many things that need fixing other than embracing you? Is it our fault? No, sorry, there’s never an excuse for whipping up some racial animosity as a means to an end.

I think you’re a troublemaker. You were at school, you are now. But we need to beware of what’s whipped up.

In April 1981, we had the Brixton riots. They happened just up the road from our school. The images of rioting people, many of them from the racial minorities, made it easy to discriminate; many people did back then. The National Front was hugely popular by comparison to today. So, turbulent times back then… but have you not moved on?

I agree with you there are historic dates that change lives. I stood on the Berlin Wall on that wonderful day in 1989 and have 8mm ciné film I took that never fails to choke me:  the images of euphoria, loud noise and waving flags of all colours.  Those are real celebrations – and for good reason. I congratulate the German people on their achievement in integrating two by then divergent cultures. It has taken decades rather than the few years Helmut Kohl predicted, but from mutual animosity and envy on both sides, today the country bears little evidence of physical or societal difference. 

After the referendum vote, you called for an “independence day” to mark the result.  It’s an insult those good people in the real world who have died fighting real struggles for independence. I hope the nation sees just as I do that we have allowed ourselves to be enchanted by the charismatic and populist against plainly obvious EU failings without any real thought as to the background and objectives of the people delivering the messages.  

Déjà vu, I’m afraid.

Hi,
4 of the 6 eventual candidates, not included are Phil Broughton & Diane James.
This interview shows just how unpleasant and strident UKip’s senior members are as they squabble and back stab.
After almost 23 years of Nigel Farage aiming to modernise and professionalise UKip his failure is palpable as his own description of his leadership team shows.
So as a leader he failedf leaving the partyy he has led for almost 20 years in total shambles, with even less leqadership qualities than even he displayed in his efforts to oppose a Referendum and sabotage the petition that brought BreXit to Britain.
Nigel Farage may well have greatly enriched himself after his failed carreer in The City, but he has been hugely divisive and has dragged the EUroSceptic movement into the gutter with no strategy or plan for a responsible eXit from the EU that would ensure Britain’s future economic security.
Now that a majority of those who voted have achieved BreXit with 17.1/2 Million votes inspite of UKip and people like them let us hope that, as UKip has utterly failed to professionalise, modernise or act responsibly they now fade away leaving the unpleasant brand of people they attracted to dillute into the community.
