Clean EUkip up NOW & make UKIP electable!

The corruption of some of EUkip’s leadership, their anti UKIP claque & the NEC is what gives the remaining 10% a bad name!

Another Report of a Bent UKIP Councillor! It is not that UKIP is unique in having bent Councillors but it is the staggering percentage of the tiny number they have that is News Worthy!

Hi,
it is not that UKIP is unique in having bent Councillors but it is the staggering percentage of the tiny number they have that is News Worthy!Yet further proof of UKIP leadership failure and its shambolic unprofessional selection process – you only have to look at the remarkably low caliber opf its MEPs, staff, NEC, Councillors and even the shower they have lined up as prospective MEPs hand selected by the leadership for the EU elections in May!

Here is one of the longest serving, who was ditched by a meeting of his full UKIP Regional Committee as unsuitable and as a result of the facts led by his wife of inappropriate behaviour with their daughter whilst bathing with her! Yet was immediately reinstated and given a full time job by Nigel Farage!

UKIP SW must be so proud of Nigel Farage’s choice

TOWLER, Gawain 05 advert

Some may remember the hillarious comment made by Elizabeth Becket a UKIP NEC member at the time, who was on the regional committee when she tried to do Farage’s bidding with the statement:
‘But in a nice warm bath don’t all men get erections’! and bear in mind she used to be a nurse many moons ago!
Farage’s yes man who chaired the meeting was Malcolm Wood who valiantly tried to hide the corruption!

Council leader slams former mayor’s ‘hypocrisy’ over attempted land deals

Cheshire East Council to probe the conduct of Ukip councillor Brian Silvester

Councillor Brian Silvester.

A Cheshire East councillor who  has been campaigning against development in the green gap has  been trying to promote his own  open countryside land for housing, the  Chronicle can exclusively reveal.

Ukip councillor Brian Silvester has  been trying to strike a deal with Richborough Estates, a strategic land promotion company, for a 20-acre site he  owns with his brother in Shavington.

The Chronicle has obtained copies of  emails the Willaston and Rope councillor sent – from his Cheshire East  Council email account – to the company.

The emails show that Cllr Silvester,  who has been campaigning against developments in and around Crewe because, ‘maintaining the green gap is a  massive issue for residents’,  has been  trying to cash in on his own countryside  land by getting Richborough Estates to  promote it as suitable for housing.

When approached by the Chronicle  about the matter, the Willaston and  Rope councillor said it was a ‘storm in a  teacup’ because he jointly owned the  land with his brother and some of the  site, at Shavington House Farm, Crewe  Road, was brownfield. Richborough refused to promote Cllr Silvester’s land,  which could accommodate about 150  houses, for development.

In an email sent to the Ukip councillor  in September of last year, company  director Paul Campbell said: “We consider your site to be a step too far in  eroding the gap between Shavington  and Crewe.”

The email continued: “As a business  we will only pursue sites that we feel are  logical and technically sound and,  frankly, we believe your site would  cause significant landscape impact.”

He suggested if the councillor  was unable to find anyone else  willing to put in an application for him  ‘maybe you could put an advert in the  Crewe Chronicle if you’re struggling’.

The first email the Chronicle has seen  in relation to this is dated November 29,  2012, and was sent from Cllr Silvester’s  Cheshire East email account.

It is addressed to Richborough director Paul Campbell and reads: “Paul,  Wain Homes have won their appeal to  build 80 dwellings off Rope Lane in the  Green Gap. Are you still interested in  our land on the Shavington side of the  bypass in light of this rather surprising  decision? With best wishes, Brian.”

On December 3, when the company  director replied he might be interested,  Cllr Silvester emailed – again from his  Cheshire East account – “I think there  is a good window of opportunity for our  site now but we need to move quickly  before it closes. In light of that we have interest from a number of developers, so speed is of the essence.”

On December 7, 2012, Cllr Silvester  emailed again: “Paul, Would you be  interested in putting in an application  now?”

On January 18, 2013, he emailed yet  again: “Paul, What level of option fee  and contribution towards our legal  costs would you be willing to offer?  What period of option would you require? Would you apply now for all the  20 acres or for a smaller area?”

Richborough Estates declined in  September of last year to go ahead with  any deal because of the sensitivity of the  site and after learning Cllr Silvester had  written a letter to Willaston residents  asking them to object to its (Richborough’s) application off Moorfields.

Mr Campbell emailed Cllr Silvester to  say: “Given your objection letter to all  the residents of Willaston asking them  to object to our application off Moorfields, I am afraid that I am going to  have to decline promoting your land  at Shavington. This is partly because you have gone out to try and  seek people to object to our application on the grounds of green  gap when your site is also green  gap, which is a rather inconsistent  and self-defeating  position to the one  taken on your own  land, but also because we consider  your site to be a  step too far in  eroding the  gap between  Shavington  and  Crewe.”

 

Councillor said he wouldn’t stop his brother cashing in

Ukip councillor Brian Silvester has told  the Chronicle the Shavington site in question is jointly owned and it would not be  right to stop his brother from trying to cash  in on the land.

Cllr Silvester also claimed the site is  partly brownfield ‘and development is encouraged on brownfield sites’.

When the Chronicle pointed out the rest  was green gap, the councillor again repeated he owned it in partnership with his  brother.

“The land is not in my sole ownership,”  he said. “I can’t stop my brother doing what  he wants to do.”

When asked by the Chronicle if he was a  50/50 partner with his brother, Cllr Silvester said he was.

When it was then suggested that it would  be difficult for his brother to go ahead with  a scheme without his consent if they were  equal partners, the Willaston and Rope  councillor said: “It would not be right of me  to stop my brother doing what he wants to  do. That would be wrong. If he wants to  proceed that’s up to him.”

Cllr Silvester insisted he was justified in  campaigning against countryside development when he was trying to do the same  on his own land.

He re-iterated part of his site brownfield.

“I’m supporting my residents to defend  themselves against the unwanted development in the green gap and on my land,  that is the land owned jointly with my  brother, there has been no application so I  don’t see what the problem is,” he said.

He added: “I think it’s a bit of a storm in a  teacup because there’s no planning application [on his land] and even if there was  I’m only a part owner and part of it is  brownfield.”

The Chronicle asked Cllr Silvester why, if  his brother was the main person behind  the idea, it had been him [Cllr Silvester]  who had made all the contact with the  company.

He said: “I don’t think my brother liked  using email at that time.”

He insisted he had done nothing wrong in  using a council email address to try to  conduct private business involving planning.

“That was only for convenience,” he said,  adding the council allowed its members to  use their council email for personal use.

 

Developer confirms contact with councillor

Riichborough Estates director Paul Campbell  has confirmed to the Chronicle the emails  between himself and Cllr Brian Silvester are  genuine. The Chronicle contacted Mr Campbell  to check the authenticity of the documents before speaking to the Ukip councillor.

Mr Campbell confirmed they were genuine exchanges between himself and Cllr Silvester and  then explained how his company had first approached the Cheshire East councillor about the  land three years ago.

“We would have sent out a whole raft of  letters at the same time to landowners on  the edge of Crewe and the villages,” said  Mr Campbell.

“We get details from the Land Registry about who owns it.”

He said some people respond, others do not.

“Brian got in touch in 2011 to  say he was keen,” said Mr Campbell.

The company director said  everything went quiet for a while  ‘then he started chasing me again  when the Wain Homes decision  came out’.

Mr Campbell said by then he had  decided on another site and when he  learned Cllr Silvester was also campaigning actively against his company  over a Willaston scheme he was  astounded.

“We always found it puzzling – the  stance he was taking against our application when his actions spoke so differently on his own interests,” he said.

 

Councillor fought applications saying green gap was ‘massive issue’

CHESHIRE East councillor Brian Silvester has expressed his  opposition to several planning  applications because they were  in the green gap, despite trying  to secure a deal on his own  Shavington land.

In May of last year he told the  Chronicle he was concerned  about Gladman’s application for  95 homes on land at Audlem  Road in Audlem and an application for a site off Newcastle  Road in Willaston which was  put forward by Emery Planning  Partnership.

With regard to the Newcastle  Road site, Cllr Silvester said he  objected because ‘maintaining  the green gap is a massive issue  for residents’.

This week Cllr Silvester insisted he had done nothing  wrong.

“The emails are well over a  year ago and quite dated.

“I have been working very  hard in the area inviting people  to object to their (Richborough’s) application.

“I have done it for the appeal  and they’re trying to stop me  doing what I should be doing for  my constituents.”

Cllr Silvester also emailed the  Chronicle on Friday to say: “Further to our phone chat, [between  himself and reporter Belinda  Ryan] we [Cllr Silvester and his  brother] own 12 acres to the  north of the A500.

“The developers of Gresty  Oaks approached us to include   our land as part of their housing  development and we declined  because that land is entirely in  the green gap and has no brown  field land at all.”

A few minutes later he emailed  the Chronicle again to add:  “Richborough are having a go at  me because they do not like the  very vigorous way I am opposing their application/appeal for  170 houses  off Moorfields, Willaston, on behalf of my constituents, who are vehemently opposed to the application. Instead  of making the case for their application they choose to attack  me personally, when all I am doing is to defend the interests of  my residents as I have always  done and will continue to do so.”

Cllr Silvester, the former  deputy leader of Cheshire East,  who is also an ex-leader of  Crewe and Nantwich Borough  Council and a former Crewe and  Nantwich mayor, quit the Conservative party in November  2012.

At the time his political future  was being discussed by the  party, following his criminal  conviction the month before.

He and his brother Colin were  fined £45,000 and ordered to pay  £22,000 costs after pleading  guilty at Chester Crown Court  to a catalogue of fire safety  breaches at the building they  rented out as bedsits on Crewe  Road in Shavington.

At the time the court heard  from prosecutor Bernard Thorogood that when fire officers  had carried out an inspection of  the property ‘the risk of serious  injury was so significant that  immediate action needed to be  taken and a prohibition notice  was issued. The circumstances  were such that a fire would have  spread rapidly throughout the  premises’.

Cllr Silvester – who once stood  as a parliamentary candidate for  the Tories – refused to stand  down from Cheshire East despite numerous calls for his  resignation because of his criminal conviction.

He represented the people of  Willaston and Rope for several  months as an Independent before joining Ukip in June of last  year.

 

Council to probe councillor’s conduct

Cheshire East Council has  asked the Chronicle to hand  over the correspondence we have  showing Cllr Brian Silvester used  his council email to try to conduct  personal business with a land developer.

The Chronicle contacted Cheshire  East for a statement after seeing the  emails. Cheshire East Council has  since asked us for a ‘copy of the  dossier as the leader will want to  pass that to the monitoring officer’.

This means the council will now  consider whether or not the Ukip  councillor has broken the council’s  code of conduct. Cllr Silvester has  not acted illegally in any way.

Cheshire East leader Michael  Jones was incensed when he was  approached by the Chronicle. “To  me, this would appear to be  very  hypocritical of Cllr Silvester and I’m  really disappointed for the people of  Willaston,” said Cllr Jones.

“I will now refer this to the monitoring officer because of him using  Cheshire East equipment.”
