#0112* – UKIP ACCOUNTS HONESTY & THE NEED FOR A REFERENDUM

Posted by Greg Lance - Watkins (Greg_L-W) on 20/09/2010

#0112* – UKIP ACCOUNTS HONESTY & THE NEED FOR A REFERENDUM

Clean EUkip up NOW make UKIP electable!
The corruption of EUkip’s leadership, 
 their anti UKIP claque in POWER & the NEC 
is what gives the remaining 10% a bad name!
UKIP ACCOUNTS, HONESTY & THE NEED FOR 
A PETITION & REFERENDUM THAT CAN BE TRUSTED!

Hi,

This makes an interesting read – well for those who like to watch paint dry!!

It becomes more interesting when you note that Marta Andreasen is a qualified bean counter who makes much of the obscurity of The EU accounts and failed to do her job as an EU accountant where she was charged with identifying fraud possibilities in one small area – that of a single Commissioner’s brief and producing a report on the subject with recommendations as to systems that could be introduced to tighten up the system

Marta Andreasen failed to produce the report by the due date and was given two further dates on which she failed to deliver. I gather she was then moved to another job having been incompetent to the job she had used a false CV to obtain.

Marta Andreasen lost her case for wrongfull dismissal and has now lost her appeal also or so it seems from the transcript and press article.

In the meantime she dishonestly and corruptly gained a position as an MEP representing the South East of England which she has never lived in and rarely visits and hardly knows.

She has also taken on the job of UKIP Treasurer until it has gained her election and then dumped the job which it was clear she had not acquitted during this time she has written a novel about the EU.

Here is what SHE considers to be an adequate accounting of her financial activities on the public purse to date (I checked TODAY).

Marta Andreasen MEP     South East
July to December 2009

1.  Parliamentary Assistance Allowance

This allowance is for payment to Employees, Self Employed Service Providers and Accredited Assistants who support the work of the MEP. Any part of this allowance not used remains in the EU budget.   Contracts for all are lodged for approval with the Parliament and held by them. The Parliament makes the payment for employees to the Paying Agent, who deduct income tax and national insurance before making the net payment to the employee.  Self employed service providers have to provide invoices for approval firstly by the Paying Agent and then the Parliament, who makes the payment directly to them. Any staff based in Brussels are known as accredited assistants and are paid direct by the Parliament.  At no time in any of these cases does any money go into the MEPs bank account.

Interesting when someone who is a law maker in our Government and CLAIMS to be an accountant – indeed has tried to pass herself off as The EU Chief Accountant when she was only a bean counter in a very small department!

Yet this is considered acceptable for one year – well 15 months. I wonder how HMCR would feel if YOU put this in as your accounts!

Now consider the full and transparent accounts of Nigel Farage who in 1999 PROMISE transparent accountability and that never would UKIP MEPs employs family.

These are the accounts of someone who boasts he was a professional gambler in The City of London and understands finance – this is the cheeky chappie who berates Emperor Barroso for his accountancy failures and who entered £211,000 (over 50%) as ‘other expenses’ in his constituency accounts – has been banking off shore in the Isle of Man on ONE occasion alone £1/4 million and admits to trousering £2 million and has never accounted the £1/4 M he was responsible for his failed petition with Lott & Croucher nor for over 85% of the cash collected at Ashford nor the monies laundered with Graham Booth through the hotel card account, nor wine world, nor lotteries, nor Ramsgate,

Nor the monies laundered criminally through Global Britain by himself, Malcolm Pearson, Stuart Agnew and possibly others.

Here is his idea of honouring his promises:

Obscene isn’t it when you realise that Nigel Farage has thus been in a position to steal many £Millions of public money – I do not claim he has but the obfuscation of his accounts as a wealthy law maker are not transparency but a travesty.

Here are the accounts of Nikki Sinclaire yet she is attacked by filth like Mark Croucher as they skulk in the EU to hide from the values of these United Kingdoms to avoid honouring his legitimate debts in contempt of British Law, British Justice & British Courts.

I have established through the EU that Sinclaire’s accounts are being investigated by the Payments Office / OLAF at her request as they agree with her belief that she has been set up by UKIP and will check to see if any other fraudullent transactions have been entered dishonestly to seek to damage her by staff or others.

Sinclaire called in the authorities the night before the article appeared in The Sunday Times. The article that was THE ONLY media coverage given to UKIP during the Farage Fan Club meeting in Torquay!

By the way Nikki Sinclaire is NOT a qualified accountant AND it seems UKIP plants were working against her within her own staff!

Sinclaire was the first UKIP elected MEP to ever produce and publish her accounts and it was not until leaving the corrupt EFD that Nattrass produced his accounts.

By the way the EU accounts haven’t been passed by the auditors for 15 years.

Nikki Sinclaire’s next 6 monthly accounts May well be a little more complex as she has spent a great deal of her expenses AND of her own money on ‘The Petition for a Referendum‘ which is complimenting ‘The EU Referendum Campaign‘ both are in close contact and working through ‘The Midnight Group‘.
