The corruption of EUkip’s leadership, 
their anti UKIP claque in POWER & the NEC 

is what gives the remaining 10% a bad name!  

.

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”.
