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!  


Farage Has A Strange Idea of Suitability of Candidates for UKIP! At a time when Nigel Farage is giving it large in the media about how he aims to professionalise his party & clean out the risk elements a man who was CEO of a company that accepted £100K of EU tax payers money and then went bust owing creditors almost £1/2M seems singularly inappropriate!!


there was a proud boast made by some fool that UKIP’s candidate John Bickley had no internet presence – funny how that inclines one to start checking!

I have read a number of internet articles about John Bickley since then and when one reads articles like the one below, one wonders what else is being hidden!

UKIP candidate accepted £100,000 of Euro cash to help his business

28 Jan 2014 18:51

UKIP candidate John Bickley, standing in the Wythenshawe and Sale East, by-election, took nearly £100,000 from an EU-backed fund.

UKIP’S candidate in the Wythenshawe and Sale East by-election took nearly £100,000 of EU cash to prop up his business, the M.E.N can reveal.

Before he joined the party, Cheshire tycoon John Bickley’s tech firm Genemation accepted the grant from a Brussels-backed fund but has now decided to stand on an anti-Europe ticket.

In recent days, Mr Bickley, widely tipped to come second in next month’s poll, has slammed British governments for ‘outsourcing’ control to the EU.

His party’s central message is that the country should withdraw altogether from Europe.

But the M.E.N can reveal that when his software company was looking to relocate from Manchester to Liverpool in 2006 – at the time in debt to the tune of nearly £1m – it accepted £95,000 from the Liverpool Seed Fund.

The £27m investment pot – £20m of which was provided by the EU – had been set up to help boost regional growth.

At the time the company moved, Mr Bickley – then CEO, company secretary and a director of Genemation – told the Liverpool Daily Post: “The backing and support from the Liverpool Seed Fund was crucial and we are looking forward to working closely with the fund as we develop.”

The company went into liquidation in 2009, owing more than £450,000.

UKIP’s fortunes in the upcoming Wythenshawe and Sale East by-election have been the subject of widespread speculation ahead of the European polls on May 22.

The party’s central policy is that Britain should withdraw from the European Union.

Mr Bickley was announced as the party’s candidate last Thursday and in an interview shortly afterwards he said: “Parliament has outsourced the running of this country to the EU.

“It needs to take responsibility. I love Europe, its people and culture, but Labour and the Conservatives have subjugated – by stealth – control of this country to the EU and its quangos.”

Speaking to the M.E.N. he said his stance was in no way hypocritical, because he was not a member of UKIP at the time.

He added: “If you are a director of a company and you are responsible for raising money for that company, you would be in breach of your duty to the shareholders if you introduced your political belief system.”

He ended up make a loss from his involvement in the firm, he said – while standing by his belief that the country is better off outside the EU.

“In terms of sources of money, there’s plenty of sources of money out there in he market place … the money that may come from the EU is a pittance in the context.”
