UKIP’s Ashford Scam Made Someone Around £350K Minimum NOT UKIP! Nigel Farage clearly claimed that Ashford made over £400K yet in response to Richard Suchorzewski Farage’s chosen Chairman David Bannerman confirmed less than 15% ever reached UKIP!

Well may the liar and scoundrel John Moran hang his head in shame and decline to comment!

Ukip’s call centre, set up in 2003 in a former bookmaker’s office near Ashford station in Kent, has been described by Nigel Farage as the “single most successful thing Ukip has ever done”.
It was designed to raise funds and bolster the party’s support, and Mr Farage has said it raised at least £400,000 and doubled Ukip’s membership.
Staff worked from the phone numbers of people who had contacted local Ukip offices, canvassing supporters and soliciting donations. However, it was the source of controversy over its “aggressive telephone manner” and high running costs.
“It caused all sorts of rows on the national executive,” Martin Haslam, a former Ukip branch treasurer, said.
Officials complained that the staff — telesales professionals who had no allegiance to the party and were paid by commission — hounded members with requests to stump up more and more cash.
Ian Gillman, a former member of Ukip’s national executive committee, said concerns about the centre’s “aggressive telephone tactics in raising money” had been raised by the committee. “There was this constant call for money, we would constantly get letters from Farage and the leadership. I was asking where was the money going. We couldn’t get any straight answers.”
Tony Ellwood, a former regional organiser who became a researcher to Derek Clark, MEP, said: “They were so assertive with the membership that many members actually resigned.”
He said they also told members that their money would end up with their local regional branch but claimed that this did not happen.
In 2005 the party’s internal magazine carried an article acknowledging that “when the Ashford call centre first opened, it is fair to say it was the centre of some controversy within Ukip”.
The centre was closed after three years when Douglas Campbell-Bannerman, then the party’s deputy leader, found that high running costs meant that only 15 per cent of donated funds were paid over.
He said he felt that it “was bleeding the party dry”.

What happened to the £287,000 donated to Farage’s local branch?
Do remember Richard Suchorzewski proved at a meeting in Derby that only approx 10% of the money raised by Ashford ever reached UKIP as subsequently confirmed by David Bannerman, the then UKIP MEP!

Did John Moran the liar and low life who ran the scam trouser the cash or share it with Nigel Farage? we may never know as 100s of £1,000s just went missing!

Richard Suchorzewski was lied about with claims he was homosexual and a BNP member for daring to ask for facts & transparency as an elected NEC member both facts were lies claimed by Nigel Farage’s personal staff.

Almost £300,000 in Ukip party donations were paid in to Nigel Farage’s local branch and withdrawn as unspecified “other costs”, raising further questions over the party’s funding.
Ukip insiders have repeatedly raised concerns over £287,734 spent by the party’s southeast branch in 2004 and 2005. The money was not used for campaigning, communications, property rental, utilities or auditing and was described only as “other” running costs, according to accounts filed with the Electoral Commission.

In subsequent years, running costs amounted to no more than £8,200. Even though the accounts itemised payments for as little as £496 on communications, they offered no explanation of how the much larger sums were spent.

The withdrawals came as Ukip was chanelling national donations generated by a controversial call centre in Ashford, Kent, into the southeast branch. So concerned were Ukip members about the call centre’s finances that they commissioned an independent report which criticised “a lack of transparency” and called for a full audit.

The fundraising operation, set up in mid-2003 in an office provided free by Alan Bown, Ukip’s biggest donor, has been credited by Mr Farage with raising at least £400,000 and boosting the membership of the fledgeling party.

However, Ukip officials have questioned why much of the donated money never made it to the party’s national coffers. Martin Haslam, the treasurer at Ukip’s southeast branch in 2005, described the call centre as an operation “where money went in and no one quite knew what happened to it”.

In 2006, a group of Ukip members in the south east commissioned a corporate due diligence company to examine the call centre’s business structure. A partial copy of the initial report obtained by The Times indicates that the company raised concerns about “a lack of transparency regarding the set-up and continuing operation of Ashford Employment Ltd [which paid the call centre staff]” and the company history of John Moran, one of the centre’s founders. Mr Moran said he was not aware of the allegations and did not want to comment further.

The report called for an independent auditor to “perform a full audit”, something that insiders say did not happen.

This week, The Times revealed that Mr Farage faces an inquiry into a “missing” £60,000 in EU allowances. Six Ukip officials have complained that their attempts to raise financial concerns were blocked. Documents filed by Ukip with Companies House and the Electoral Commission provide only a partial picture of what happened to funds raised by the call centre.

Ashford Employment Ltd, a company owned by Mr Bown and run by Ukip, was set up in October 2003 to pay for call centre workers. It spent £158,582 in 2004 and £89,456 in 2005. Once staff and the running costs had been met from donations, any surplus from Ashford was transferred to the southeast branch, according to Terry Quarterman, the centre’s former manager and a director of the company. The branch received £291,931 in donations in 2004, the year of the European elections, and £114,967 in 2005, although it is unclear how much was from Ashford.

Former Ukip members have raised concerns about the two large sums that were paid out of the branch in the same two years. In 2004, the branch recorded a £211,267 withdrawal as “other” running costs. In 2005, £89,996 was spent in the same way. Late in 2005, the call centre’s financial affairs were transferred to Ukip’s head office. Ukip said that accounts for the centre were filed with the Electoral Commission. “They were audited as legally required and found to be in order,” a spokesman said.

UKIP are, as predicted, using the spin that the many factual details being exposed by the media are being exposed as a part of an establishment conspiracy to damage UKIP because it is doing well.

Lets look at these foolish claims – firstly UKIP is not doing well that is pure hype after 21 years they still have zero MPs and have never come even close to having one elected and out of 1,750 available Counciller seats UKIP achieved a risible under 150 and of these at least 200 have already fallen out with UKIP some due to racism others due to criminality and when it comes to MEPs of those who were elected about half have quit UKIP having fallen out with Nigel Farage’s dishonesty, bullying and abuse of funds seemingly for his personal gain – including putting his wife on a salary having PROMISED not to employ family to get elected and now also employs at least one of his ex sexual partners!

Consider just how huge UKIP’s failure has been with it still little more than a one man band, more a cult founded on Nigel Farage as its showman but hardly a party more of a joke that leaves a bad taste in one’s mouth – the more you know of UKIP the more corrupt and odious one realises they are.
