The Times, The Police & OLAF Seem Interested In Nigel Farage’s expenses there seems to be around £60K adrift that was paid into his personal account!!

.

Second story in The Times:
Leading article, page 26
Tucked away at the end of a country lane in West Sussex, an unremarkable red-brick outhouse could now be at the centre of an EU expenses investigation into the leader of Britain’s fastest- growing political party.
Nigel Farage claimed the small farmyard building in Lyminster as his constituency office after being elected as an MEP in 1999. Known as the Old Grain Store, it was provided to Mr Farage rent-free by John and Julia Longhurst, local Ukip supporters. Although the office measures only 625 sq ft, Mr Farage claims to have spent more than £15,000 a year on its utilities and upkeep — all paid for out of EU allowances automatically given to each MEP with no requirement for them to justify their spending.
A former office manager at the Old Grain Store has now said that the correct figure was closer to £3,000 a year, a claim that Mr Farage disputes and that has now been referred to EU anti-fraud investigators.
David Samuel-Camps, 69, who worked as political assistant to Mr Farage between 2002 and 2010, was responsible for keeping the accounts for the Old Grain Store since about 2005.
Mr Samuel-Camps said that electricity, heating, insurance and business rates at the office totalled less than £250 a month. In transparency reports posted on Ukip’s website, Mr Farage claims to have spent almost £1,300 a month solely on these costs, although he said that they covered his home office as well. “Every month I’d contact Nigel one way or the other and say can you send me a cheque, you know the monthly cheque for however much it was,” the former office manager said. “He would send me a cheque, which I recall was a personal cheque, which I would then put into our office account in Arundel.
And then I would draw on that, as and when, for paying invoices.” Last night, Mr Farage claimed that he transferred £1,000 a month to run the Old Grain Store, without specifying what costs this covered.
Mr Samuel-Camps said that Mr Farage wrote a cheque for £700 a month but that this sum covered the entire upkeep of the office including equipment, phone bills and stationery.
Mr Samuel-Camps’s duties are now carried out by Ray Finch, Mr Farage’s personal “fixer” who, with two Ukip regional organisers, Steve Harris and Chris Adams, is based at the Lyminster office.
All three are paid out of European funds, but perform party political work, in an apparent breach of EU rules.
Mr Finch, a former surveillance engineer who is hoping to become an MEP in next month’s European elections, describes his duties as including “communications internally and externally”.
He was in regular contact with the press during a by-election in Eastleigh, Hampshire, last year. As regional organisers, Mr Harris and Mr Adams are responsible for building up the party in the south east.
A Ukip spokesman said that UK-based staff paid from EU funds “are approved constituency managers in line with advice given to us by the members’ services in Strasbourg”.
Other current and former Ukip staff have criticised Mr Farage for what they claim is the secretive way he and other Ukip MEPs spend hundreds of thou- sands of pounds garnered in European allowances. Martin Haslam, Ukip’s treasurer in the South East in 2005, said that party members based in Britain were “never allowed to get involved” with the sensitive question of EU funding.
“You’ve got this mystery in Brussels over where the money originates from,” he said. “I don’t quite know where it all goes.”
Mr Haslam rose to deputy treasurer of the party, but still found his inquiries into EU funds blocked. “There seems to be talk of thousands floating around that no one saw,” he said. “It would be in everyone’s interest that there should be an independent audit of the whole national set-up.
” When he was working in the Old Grain Store, Mr Haslam noticed a distinction in status between Ukip and its European equivalents. “You had great sums at a European level that didn’t seem to filter through to what I was doing,” he said. “It was a bit feudal.
You had these chaps in Brussels apparently getting huge salaries and expenses, and there were the poor peasants over here doing all the work”.
A Ukip spokesman rejected the claims: “Mr Haslam never had any responsibility for EU money. He was, for a brief period, responsible for the Ukip southeast accounts.” MEPs can receive hundreds of thou- sands of pounds in “allowances” from the EU every year with little or no scrutiny.
Mr Farage, who in 2009 said that he received almost £2 million in EU expenses, made sure he kept tight control over his party’s finances, with other Ukip MEPs made to sign over rights to monies received as a result of their memberships of special EU groups.
Nikki Sinclaire, a former Ukip MEP who is on bail over fraud charges, said that Mr Farage asked her to sign away her rights to “communication” budgets worth £62,000, which she received each year from her membership of the EFD, a European political group dominated by Ukip members.
Ms Sinclaire said that when she asked Mr Farage where the money was going he shouted at her and slammed his fist on a table.
Ukip did not comment on her allegations.
.
I understand that it was not long ago that Farage was forced to repay around £50>60K of tax payers’ money which he had dishonestly funded Ray Finch with, the salaries of party individuals is not a responsibility of the tax payer whether as a goffer or a regional organiser! Paperwork on this sum seems well hidden but it is a matter of open discussion.

Greg_L-W..

Nigel Farage faces investigation into ‘missing’ EU expenses

Nigel Farage faces investigation into ‘missing’ EU expenses! We can but hope that the Police will also look into his accounts as a result and may find it strange that in one year alone he claimed almost £1/4 Million was spent on sundry expenses in that same small office – I know Steve Harris is far from small but does he live on a diet of staples? OR did David Samuel-Camps spend it all on hairdressers 😉

Hi,
So UKIP want publicity well today they have front page coverage in The Times and on page 26.

Here is the story on the front page I’ll deal wioth the other story later!

Just a reminder that publicity of these facts now is not some conspiracy theorists wet dream, but the simple fact that the higher up the tree the monkey climbs the more you see its Rse!

Farage faces investigation into ‘missing’ EU expenses

Nigel Farage faces an expenses investigation into almost £60,000 of “missing” European Union funds paid into his personal bank account.

The Ukip leader has received £15,500 a year from the EU since at least 2009 to pay for the upkeep of his constituency office, a small converted grain store near Bognor Regis, according to transparency reports filed on the party’s website.

However, the grain store was given rent-free to Mr Farage by Ukip supporters 15 years ago.

Utilities and other non-rental costs amount to no more than £3,000 a year, according to the former office manager, leaving about £12,000 a year unexplained.

The Ukip leader, who has made strides in the polls after condemning the former culture secretary Maria Miller’s expenses abuse last week, confirmed that he received his office rent free but insisted that he legitimately spent more than £1,000 a month to run the 620 sq ft property.

A former senior Ukip official has filed a formal complaint about Mr Farage to the EU anti-fraud office OLAF.

The complainant wishes to remain anonymous because of “physical threats” allegedly made by other Ukip officials against members who raised questions about the party’s finances.

Ukip MEPs have only filed transparency reports since July 2009, meaning that it is possible Mr Farage spent more than £200,000 of EU funds on “office management and running” costs on his office since his election in 1999. Under EU and Ukip guidelines, such spending is limited to rent, water, electricity, heating, insurance and business rates.

Stationery, office equipment, staff and communications come under separate spending categories. Like all MEPs, Mr Farage receives a general expenditure allowance (GEA) of about £3,800 a month to rent and run an office in his home country.

No MEP is required to file receipts to show how this money is spent, however, opening the system up to potential abuse. “You shove it down your trousers if you want to,” Mike Nattrass, a former Ukip MEP, said. “The EU will never ask them to justify it.

That’s the trouble with it. It goes into your bank account whether you want it or not.” Mr Farage accepted that MEPs “don’t need any receipts or any justification” to receive EU allowances.

He said that he used his GEA to run the grain store as well as a smaller office located at his home.

“I don’t pay rent on the office but I obviously pay for everything else,” he said.

“Whether it’s the burglar alarm or electricity.” Mr Farage disputed a statement by David Samuel-Camps, the grain store’s office manager in 2010, who said that running costs amounted to only £3,000 a year. “About £1,000 a month is roughly what it is,” the Ukip leader said.

“Exceptionally I put more money in as and when it’s needed.” Mr Farage also revealed that he used a proportion of his GEA to pay more than £1,000 a month towards a controversial second EU pension scheme of which he was a member between 1999 and 2009. Under the generous scheme, which was criticised by many MEPs at the time, members paid in £1,052 from their own money every month which was supplemented by a generous taxpayer-funded payment of £2,104.

Like other MEPs, Mr Farage’s contribution to the pension was deducted from his GEA before the rest was deposited into his bank account.

The system relied on MEPs being honest enough to fund the shortfall in GEA out of their own cash. Mr Farage insists he did so.

Last year the Ukip leader was embarrassed after it was revealed he had set up the Farage Family Educational Trust on the Isle of Man in order to mitigate tax, although he said that he did not personally benefit.

Mr Farage was last night forced to deny claims made by former staff members that he transferred European funds into other offshore bank accounts he controlled which were located in the Cayman Islands and the Isle of Man.

Mr Farage said that any inquiries into such matters were “completely, wholly unacceptable” and added that he would not answer “any more questions of that nature”. An EU spokeswoman confirmed: “It is on the MEP’s honour that the assumption is made that the money is spent properly.” A Ukip spokesman said: “Nigel Farage is confident that he has abided by European parliamentary rules at all times when spending allowances.”

This inquiry may well show Nigel Farage’s lies regarding his off shore account in the tax haven of The Isle of Man about which he lied and claimed he did not use – I feel sure few readers will consider a deposit of £1/4 Million to Farage Family Educational Trust to be so inconsequential that it doesn’t count as a deposit of any consequence!

Interestingly on a quick check the other day I note that it seems that having publicised the details of Farage Family Educational Trust and large deposits into it by Nigel Farage to reduce his tax liabilities on his over generous income the account seems to be further obfuscated and made less traceable!
Nigel Farage’s EU bank account to avoid British tax, where as an MEP he can avoid paying into British taxation and pays a reduced rate as an MEP are still traceable but the account(s) in The Cayman Islands are beyond my ability to trace them but I’m sure Steven Woolfe would be able to help t6he police investigate those, as perhaps could Dr. Dick Horsnell could help re IoM accounts!
