Joëlle Bergeron: Her fascist past & a challenge to UKIP MEPs

 

 

BERGERON, Joelle 01Ssshhh …. Don’t tell anybody, but Nigel is lying

Farage’s new French colleague caused quite a stir upon joining him, of course, but the line put out by the EFD about her Front National past was (surprise surprise) highly misleading. Quite a few reports quoted an EFD press release which said Bergeron; “has admitted that she had joined the party with great hopes but realized that their philosophy was very different.”

This implies that she joined the FN naively but quickly left it when she discovered what it believed in.

The idea that any French person would be unaware of the position of the FN is simply ridiculous. However, perhaps she genuinely did not notice and it took her a while to suss it out. Quite a while, in fact, as she joined the FN in 1972, the year it was founded, and became a party organizer within just a few years, at the time which the FN was at its most extremist.

In fact, she must be really stupid not to notice, as her husband was a also senior party member.

Like her, he joined when the party was created. He was politically active in Lorient in Brittany from 1984, as a candidate in national, regional and cantonal elections. And here’s the real give away – he was a member of the Front National’s Central Committee from autumn 2007.

Here is an article from 2008 detailing his Front National career.

FARAGE, Nigel 91Look, I said it before, I’ll say it again, we will never sit with the FN

So the press release was clearly a deliberate attempt to deceive the UKIP membership, as well as the press and the electorate.

And now we can see how desperate Farage is to be president of a pan-European political group, and how easily he can discard his moral and political values.

The question is, how the new UKIP MEPs feel about all this, and what will they do about it? Will they continue to spout the lie that Bergeron left the FN when she worked out what they were about, or will they admit that they now sit in a political group with one of Europe’s longest serving and most established fascists, from one of the EU’s dirtiest and mst racist parties? Or are they, to a man and a women, either too scared of Farage to say anything, and too scared to lose their jobs by doing something about it?

 This charging of Nikki Sinclaire Rather Looks Like A Sad Reflection On British Justice when in the context of the €Billions the EU squanders, overpays and loses to fraud particularly relative to 29 months on bail where justice delayed is clearly justice denied!

This Rather Looks Like A Sad Reflection On British Justice!Hi,

You may find some of the facts below; and there many downloads and screen captures which I have supporting the opinions below; of interest IF you value campaigning for British Justice, responsible & competent police and cleaning-up Ukip to make it fit for purpose!

http://juniusonukip.blogspot.co.uk/2012/02/nigel-farages-useful-idiot-john-ison.html

http://ukip-vs-eukip.blogspot.co.uk/2011/03/0323-ukip-official-implicated-in-theft.html

http://markcroucher.blogspot.co.uk/2011/03/07-mar-2011-ukip-john-ison-mark.html

http://markcroucher.blogspot.co.uk/

https://ukip-vs-eukip.com/category/john-ison/

Croucher/ Ison blog : http://allaboutukip.blogspot.co.uk/2010/12/ms-sinclaire-and-how-she-dare-not-sit.html

On the, at the time, UKip controlled BDF:

It is believed that John Ison used to post occasionally as “Paul Beech”, which is BP backwards – Bob Pacific on blog also. It was removed (changed to Dave Briggs!) I hear this was done after it was shown to a UKIP MEP in Sept 2010!

“The Common Man” (Oh so Very common!) was MC backwards – Mark Croucher. This was verified for me by a UKIP Brussels insider (Croucher admitted it) at the time.

Mjolnir post on the subject was removed by BDF Moderators!

I can’t find an internet archive of Skeptyk’s BDF entry on the subject or his sordid and dishonest blog, and my source of screenshots have gone missing! It was December 2010, and posted Gregg Beeman’s salary details, but I doubt it was Ison as he was driving to the Alps about that time, so my guess is Croucher.

The information in the downloads was seemingly obtained in a burglary of Nikki Sinclaire’s office by John Ison and I hold a copy of the eMail he sent, containing copies of the material he obtained, some dozens of scans, obtained either by burglary or at very least dishonestly, supplied to the duplicitous and dishonest Mark Croucher – who worked as Nigel Farage’s sewer rat seeking out any material that could be used by Farage and his cronies to manipulate and control people – Notably it was Nigel Farage’s son who commented to Roger Knapman that he was the only person on whom his father did not have a (black) file!

The so called evidence against Nikki Sinclaire would seem to have been obtained by theft including burglary also recordings of phone calls recorded by John Ison and edited by Mark Croucher is also available – whether the police know that the evidence was stolen and the recordings edited I know not! However after almost 30 months on bail it is clear the police have had to drop a number of their original claims against Sinclaire & the 3 members of her staff originally bailed, as they obviously have failed to stand them up even when aided by the dishonest and self serving John Ison or anyone who worked for Farage!

There is absolutely no doubt that any errors of claiming by Nikki Sinclaire (or more likely her staff and most probably deliberate claims inserted into her accounts by third party efforts to damage her) do NOT justify the prolonged period of bail used to smear her name on the grounds of ‘Justice delayed is justice denied’!

The standards of behaviour by the police and others in these allegations give one every concern for the calibre of justice that can be expected and even a guilty verdict would not seem justice in the long run!

Clearly Justice should be seen to be done and much of the behaviour of those involved in the accusations and allegations, not to mention gathering of information and the vile gutter commentaries of a personal nature against Nikki Sinclaire by many of the low lifes associated with Ukip that this shoddy police activity has caused is a matter not of dignity or competence on the part of the police or Ukip and its associates but a slur on both the body politic and the tenets of Justice in these United Kingdoms.

It has been suggested by a retired police Acting Chief Supt. of 30 years distinguished service that:

‘….no interview / charges presented face-face + hand delivered summons (charges) (after this period on bail+ investigation) = possible’ “strong grounds for malicious prosecution charge”.

Misconduct in Public Office does carry a maximum life sentence and is presented under common law, not statute.

http://www.cps.gov.uk/legal/l_to_o/misconduct_in_public_office/#a015

An easy “catch all” – but it has to be proved beyond reasonable doubt!

May I also draw your attention to:
http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/news…etty-cash.html

ALSO the fact that despite his many lies and efforts to deny his crimes and seek to claim they were invented by myself Derek Clark UKIP MEP was found guilty by OLAF of extensive false claims of EU expenses and was merely ordered to repay somewhere between £50K & £100,000 and seemingly no further action was taken.

In the case of Stuart Agnew MEP UKIP no action was seemingly taken to recoup the numerous £1,000s he falsely claimed as expenses as he admitted on camera to The Sunday Times nor against David Bannerman MEP UKIP (now a Tory MEP!) similarly implicated and neither have cleared their name!

Similarly UKIP leader & MEP Nigel Farage and a previous MEP leader of UKIP Jeffrey Titford were ordered to repay monies they had falsely claimed in expenses!

It is also worthy of note that Nigel Farage has also been accused of dishonest accounting having failed to declare donations to UKIP of over £200,000 and there is also still the issue of what happened to what may have been as much as £1M collected through the Ashford ‘scheme’ which he described as ‘UKIP’s best ever money maker’, however the party chairman, David Bannerman spoke on a point of orderr in reasponse to Richard Suchorzewski at a public meeting in Derbyshire, conceding that less than 15% of the money raised was ever presented to UKIP!

There was it seemed extensive money laundering in that large sums of money were processed through credit card donations which were processed through the credit card machine of Graham Booth UKIP MEP’s Hotel in Torquay!

Similarly there were many £1,000s collected in buckets and if accounted at all only loosely, as the outcome of the Court case brought against UKip by The Electoral Commission, which UKip lost, though UKip turned the issue to advantage seeking to raise the money and costs by bucket collections at a series of public events and by seeking donations. Contrary to claims the donation made by Alan Bown was clearly a breech of the rules as Alan Bown had removed himself from the electoral register as, I understand a part of his divorce proceedings when he left his wife and was co-habiting with one of his betting shop manageresses. Thus the donation was not legal!

A situation bearing many similarities to the donation UKip received some years previously when they accepted a sizeable donation from the owner of a UK football club who was not on the electoral register. UKip, without complaint, refunded the money that had been an unlawfull donation and arrangements were made by thwe donor to have it re-donated in a legal manner (in that case I believe it was by his wife who was on the electoral register) – Just as could have been done relative to Alan Bown’s donation.

Despite claims by dishonest or ill informed UKip members this was not a case of ElCom picking on UKip relative to the large donation made by an individual, subsequently found to be criminal, made to the Lib.Dims. as in that case they had carried out due diligence, even going so far as to contact ElCom for a ruling on the matter before utilising the money. I understand at the time of rec eipt of the money the individual was on the electoral register and neither the Lib.Dims. nor ElCom could have had any idea he was subsequerntly to be found guilty of criminality!

I was reliably informed, at the time of the start of this sorry debacle, that as soon as the tampering with her accounts took place and she was aware of it she immediately contacted the EU Payments Office and provided all the details she could and whether the EU Payments Office arranged repayment or merely wrote it off as being a paltry amount relative to the normal level of squandering of tax payer’s money that is endemic in the undemocratic and corrupt EU, I know not.

On these few comments alone and the links given it becomes all too apparently clear, in my opinion, that this is little short of malicious prosecution, seemingly for political gain or pure malice, of some sort, of individuals or groups of individuals and that the lack of ethical behaviour in extending the bail period from Feb-2012 (after Nikki Sinclaire herself had made public, and I believe had reported this to the police, she had reason to believe her accounts had been maliciously tampered with by a member of staff she believed had possibly made false claims and stolen from her) until this week.

Some 29 months on bail, with no further questioning and apparently no details of the police claims supplied, is little short of harassment and could justifiably be claimed as having ensured she was not re-elected as an MEP and is thus currently unemployed, technically, with a case pending which ensures she will be unable to get responsible employment until justice has been seen to be done and her name cleared – presumably with a healthy level of compensation!

Particularly as it is clearly shown and provable, in her accounts, that Nikki Sinclaire injected a sum in excess of £120,000 of her own money from salary and other personal sources also used a large sum of fully audited money, raised through donations, to fund her work and responsibilities, as she believed them to be (viz: obtaining 220,000 signatures to her petition to HM Government which was the direct and sole cause of David Cameron being forced to hold a debate of the House of Commons relative to Britain’s membership of the EU and thus the undertaking of an IN/OUT referendum, which he clearly led thwe public to believe would be binding).

It is bizarre to believe that an individual who donated a sum well in excess of £100K would then bother with some penny ante sum (by the standards of fraud in the EU by MEPs) – had she wished to gain more income a few £1.000 on mistakenly claimed travel expenses would be dwarfed by her net loss of personal monies through her donations. Even were the police able to engineer a conviction I do not believe Justice would be seen to be done and it is my opinion the entire matter is seeking to ‘get egg off the face of The police’ for having firstly believed the miscreants who would seem to have dishonestly and deliberately ‘set her up’ and for secondly having so tardily acted to bring the matter to Court even if they believe they have a case.

Greg_L-W..

Game Fair: Glastonbury for the green welly brigade

Attended by as many people as Glastonbury, the CLA Game Fair is a chance to champion all that’s great about rural Britain

CLA Game Fair: The annual rural event at Blenheim Palace attracts the same number of people at Glastonbury

CLA Game Fair: The annual rural event at Blenheim Palace attracts the same number of people at Glastonbury 
 

It doesn’t seem possible. One of the highlights of the rural year is here again already – well almost. The CLA Game Fair will be held at Blenheim Palace, in Oxfordshire, next weekend. I will be there on all three days and I hope to meet as many readers as possible. I will spend as much time as I can on the stand of the Countryside Restoration Trust, although I ought to confess that on Friday 18 I shall be busy “networking” for much of the day – a deceitful way of saying that for some of the time I will be socialising, meeting old friends, eating, drinking and gossiping. Enjoying myself, in other words.

I also have to work for one hour on the Friday, between 11am and midday, when I am taking part in a debate at the Game Fair Theatre titled: “Would the countryside be better off if we left the EU?” It will be an interesting debate for me, the first time since 2008 that I will have met my old “friend” Nigel Farage, leader of Ukip– another panel member. In days gone by, Nigel pleaded with me to join Ukip; he was a guest at my wedding and visited Lark Rise Farm. When, in 2008, I was mysteriously disqualified from Ukip’s MEP selection process, I phoned Nigel, who blamed Ukip’s “political committee”.

At a public meeting shortly afterwards, the party chairman was asked who was on the political committee. He replied: “Nigel Farage.” With friends like that, who needs enemies? At the debate I shall be wearing a back-protector – I want to ensure that I can’t be stabbed from behind twice.

Interestingly, another who has benefited from Nigel’s “friendship” in a vaguely similar way in the past, and who has also been lost to Ukip, is Richard North, collaborator in all things nonsensical about the EU with the Sunday Telegraph’s stalwart Christopher Booker. What a loss for the sake of a political ego.

Even more interestingly, in 2008 Ukip was “green”. Since then it appears to have been “ungreened” by positioning itself well to the right of Margaret Thatcher on the free market and globalisation – presumably at the behest of the “political committee” again.

While at the Game Fair, visitors will be able to simultaneously celebrate another great event, “National Countryside Week” (July 14-20), started by the Prince’s Countryside Fund in 2010. Already it has raised nearly £4  million for rural-based enterprises and causes. If only more politicians would take the interests of the countryside as seriously as the Prince of Wales. Attendees will be able to “Walk a Country Mile” — any distance they like, in fact — to make a contribution to the Fund. More details on page 18 of Weekend, and in the special Countryside Week edition of Life tomorrow. There will be a celebrity walk too, with Alan Titchmarsh, England rugby captain Phil Vickery and J B Gill from boy-band JLS. Sorry, I can tell you nothing about JLS as I am stuck in the time-warp of The Wurzels – and proud of it.

*

The recently published impartiality review produced for the BBC Trust describes in a very restrained way how disgracefully the BBC regards the Game Fair and the Countryside Alliance. It points out that there will be about the same number of people attending the Game Fair as attend Glastonbury– the difference, of course, is that Glastonbury streams constantly through all the BBC’s main outlets for more than the festival’s three days, whereas when the Game Fair is in full swing, how many minutes will be broadcast by Countryfile, The One Show, the Today programme, Farming Today and so on “live from the Game Fair”? Let’s wait and see.

Yet, as the report says, millions are involved with country sports. There are 500,000 game shooters alone and two million hectares (nearly five million acres) actively managed for conservation because of shooting. Then there are the people the report does not mention – the beaters, the gamekeepers, the gunmakers, the butchers and the people like me who do not shoot but enjoy eating roast pheasant.

The report also mentions the “fraught” relationship between the Countryside Alliance and the BBC – and, of course, it is only “fraught” because so many BBC programme makers do not understand the countryside and have prejudiced, “townie” views concerning country sports.

In evidence submitted to the report, Steve Peacock, former editor of Farming Today and agricultural adviser to The Archers, sums it up best: “The BBC has got better about nations and regions, about ethnic minorities but not about including the rural dimension.” So much for the BBC’s take on the modern-day obsession with “equality and diversity”.

It still grates with me that both David Bellamy and I were erased from the BBC because of our support for the Countryside Marches organised by the Countryside Alliance (and our views of the EU). The irony is that neither of us hunts, shoots or fishes.

*

The Game Fairjust oozes the “real” countryside. There are so many brilliant artists and sculptors whose work can be seen there – Rodger McPhail, Ashley Boon, Simon Gudgeon and many more. Yet they too are often ignored by chunks of the mainstream non-sporting media who should be interested in their outstanding talent. Oh, I almost forgot the wonderful Tania Still, who painted the fantastic fox hound Corset, which I walked when she was a puppy. The incredible Corset, now 14 years old, is still alive and well and enjoying her retirement living with my sister Rachael. What a dog – sorry, hound. I deliberately leave my chequebook and credit cards at home when visiting the Game Fair so that I don’t act too impulsively when I see a picture I like.

Fly casting in the lakes and the activities in the main ring inevitably attract me. I love the parade of hounds, as well; the relationship between the huntsman and his pack is astonishing, as is the bond between man and dog. To me, as a non-hunter, the “hunting ban” remains an illiberal act of undiluted prejudice and shame. And now manufactured pressure is building up on shooting, too.

Then there are the terrier races, falconry displays and so much more. The Game Fair shows that, despite the urbanisation of Britain, and the BBC’s coverage of the countryside, the heart of the “real” countryside still beats strong.

*

Now I have a confession to make. In addition to the Game Fair, visiting Blenheim is almost like a pilgrimage for me. It is the original home of one of my favourite apples, the Blenheim Orange. The apple was found by a tailor named George Kempster, at Blenheim, in about 1740. He then grew it on from pips and, because of its outstanding taste, it quickly spread across Europe and America. When horticulturist and brewer Richard Cox later crossed it with a Ribston Pippin, it became the unbeatable Cox’s Orange Pippin – and our next crop looks promising in the garden, gales permitting.

Whilst on the subject of the countryside it is worth noting The Government Cabinet reshuffle – Owen Paterson must be very pleased to have been relieved of his role as Countryside Minister as he is no longer bound by Cabinet constraints and can take up his position as a leading EUroSceptic.
May I suggest, nay even hazzard a guess, that we may even see him ‘break cover’ shortly and position himself to lead the Leave-The-EU campaign in the referendum, which The Farage Cult are doing so much to damage, Owen paterson in place would of course silence Farage’s self serving and dishonest antics and with the well reasoned ‘EXit & Survival Plan’ as presented by FleXcit supporting him he would be in a good position to work towards a NO vote and implementation of Article #50 by the British Government to Leave-The-EU.

Showing The Ineptitude Of Patrick O’Flynn, Nigel Farage & The Farage Cult that is UKIP!

.

~~~~~~~~~~#########~~~~~~~~~~
.
Hi,
having had my attention drawn to this pronouncement by the inept Patrick O’Flynn, who it would seem bought his position in the leading position as an MEP candidate for the Farage Cult by prostituting his position as a journalist for the Express ‘news wrapper’ where he was presumably salaried as a reporter of political new but abused his position by using his employers ‘paper’ as a vehicle for UKIP propaganda, which was seemingly rewarded with an MEPship by The Glorious Leader (TGL) Nigel Farage of the Farage Cult.

Realising O’Flynn’s pronouncement on the party web site was complete factual rubbish, following on the heels of the off the cuff dishonest bunkum by TGL regarding NGO funding by the EU when he claimed Greenpeace was directly funded by The EU of which neither Greenpeace’s nor The EU’s books show one Iota of proof.

I decided it was suitable for this blog which aims to expose corruption, stupidity and incompetence in UKIP in an effort to clean-up the scam and make it a party fit for purpose to lead Britain to Leave-The-EU, which clearly under Nigel Farage’s inept andf self serving leadership it is not!
Having decided to use the foolsih comments of O’Flynn as an example I spent the day enjoying the sunshine, which is my wont hence the reduction of factual articles on this blog (so may I suggest the Farage Cult pray for a continuance of this good weather!).
When I got around to doing something about the research for the article I find I was not alone in realising the standard of  accuracy of UKIP was as ever risible and numerous well informed individuals were well aware of the folly of ‘O’Flynn’s propaganda and as they had written the matter up I have opted, in indollence, to GUEST POST an article on the subject (to enjoy more sunshine).
GUEST POST:

 UKIP: the embarrassing stupidity of O’Flynn

 Saturday 12 July 2014

000a UKIP-011 veto.jpg
To view this UKIP official bunkum CLICK HERE
Following the example of TGL in falsely accusing Greenpeace of taking Brussels money, UKIP’s Patrick O’Flynn is now vying for the top slot in getting things completely wrong.

Falling for the meme that has been floating around on diverse websites, including this one, we see the myth perpetrated that: “On the 1st November 2014 the right of Parliament to legislate over us in 43 areas … will be removed and be made subject to … QMV”.

Included in a magical mystery list is Article 50 of the TEU – that which relates to the procedures for leaving the EU – the supposed removal of the veto translated as making the withdrawal of a member state conditional on QMV. Needless to say, there are no original sources cited for the assertions, but that doesn’t stop O’Flynn swallowing the myth, hook, line and sinker.

In fact, there is no loss of veto coming into force on 1 November. The change over from unanimous voting to QMV in about 40 areas has already taken place. It came with the entry into force of the Lisbon Treaty on 1 December 2009, so these changes have already been in place for nearly five years, without O’Flynn apparently noticing.

What does change on 1 November 2014 is that a there is a new system of QMV. A new “double majority” will apply when, according to Article 16 of the consolidated treaty, “a qualified majority shall be defined as at least 55% of the members of the Council, comprising at least fifteen of them and representing Member States comprising at least 65% of the population of the Union”.

Despite the sterling attempts of Denis Cooper, Autonomous Mind and this post by Boiling Frog, followed by this one to put the record straight, this has not stopped Patrick O’Flynn urging party members to support a new petition that calls for the Government to begin moves to leave the EU “before the wholesale loss of national vetoes occurs”.

Sadly, there is no stopping this rather stupid man, even if his members deserve better. It is bad enough having these silly memes thrashing around the internet, but senior members of UKIP should not be leading people astray.

To view the original article CLICK HERE
The items to which Patrick O’Flynn would seem to be claiming I list below but draw your attention to the fact that the Lisbon New Constitution Treaty, which was unopposed in The UK by Nigel Farage’s cult and UKIP at large, passed into Treaty Law and those agreed areas of competence covered by The Nice Treaty come into effect as subject to QMV on 01-Nov-2014 through to March 2017.
Administrative co-operation – Nice: Unanimity; Lisbon: QMV

During their daily check on this blog to see if they can concoct a legal excuse to silence me perhaps UKIP staff and MEPs might care to take note of certain facts regarding QMV (in this instance selected on a Finnish web site):
 The treaty reform process started in December 2000 in Nice, but the voting rules of the Council of the European Union are going to take full effect only in April 2017 – if the Treaty of Lisbon enters into force.

It is hardly the overpowering strength of the European Union we as EU citizens have to fear, but its impotence.

Current treaty

The member states have been accorded votes in the Council roughly in line with their population numbers. Article 205 of the Treaty establishing the European Community (TEC) is found in the latest consolidated version of the treaties, published in the Official Journal of the European Union (OJEU) 29.12.2006 C 321 E/136-137.

A few days later, on 1 January 2007, Bulgaria and Romania joined the European Union. But the amendment of Article 205 TEC by the 2003 Act of Accession, and the situation after the entry of Bulgaria and Romania is indicated only by a footnote and presented in an Appendix to the consolidated treaty (starting on page 325).

By inserting the changes, we present Article 205 TEC as it is in force since 1 January 2007:

Article 205 TEC

1. Save as otherwise provided in this Treaty, the Council shall act by a majority of its Members.

2. Where the Council is required to act by a qualified majority, the votes of its Members shall be weighted as follows:

Belgium 12‘
Bulgaria 10
Czech Republic 12
Denmark 7
Germany 29
Estonia 4
Greece 12
Spain 27
France 29
Ireland 7
Italy 29
Cyprus 4
Latvia 4
Lithuania 7
Luxembourg 4
Hungary 12
Malta 3
Netherlands 13
Austria 10
Poland 27
Portugal 12
Romania 14’.
Slovenia 4
Slovakia 7
Finland 7
Sweden 10
United Kingdom 29

Acts of the Council shall require for their adoption at least 255 votes in favour cast by a majority of the members where this Treaty requires them to be adopted on a proposal from the Commission.

In other cases, for their adoption acts of the Council shall require at least 255 votes in favour, cast by at least two thirds of the members.

3. Abstentions by Members present in person or represented shall not prevent the adoption by the Council of acts which require unanimity.

4. When a decision is to be adopted by the Council by a qualified majority, a member of the Council may request verification that the Member States constituting the qualified majority represent at least 62% of the total population of the Union. If that condition is shown not to have been met, the decision in question shall not be adopted.

Original Lisbon Treaty

The original Treaty of Lisbon was signed by the heads of state or government on 13 December 2007. It contains horizontal (general) amendments, i.e. terms used throughout the treaties, and amendments specific to each Article. The Lisbon Treaty was published in the OJEU 17.12.2007 C 306.

The specific amendments to Article 205 TEC, to become the Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union (TFEU) were (OJEU 17.12.2007 C 306/104-105):
:
191) Article 205 shall be amended as follows:

(a) paragraphs 1 and 2 shall be replaced by the following:

‘1. Where it is required to act by a simple majority, the Council shall act by a majority of its component members.

2. By way of derogation from Article 9 C(4) of the Treaty on European Union, as from 1 November 2014 and subject to the provisions laid down in the Protocol on transitional provisions, where the Council does not act on a proposal from the Commission or from the High Representative of the Union for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy, the qualified majority shall be defined as at least 72 % of the members of the Council, representing Member States comprising at least 65 % of the population of the Union.

3. As from 1 November 2014 and subject to the provisions laid down in the Protocol on transitional provisions, in cases where, under the Treaties, not all the members of the Council participate in voting, a qualified majority shall be defined as follows:

(a) A qualified majority shall be defined as at least 55 % of the members of the Council representing the participating Member States, comprising at least 65 % of the population of these States.

A blocking minority must include at least the minimum number of Council members representing more than 35 % of the population of the participating Member States, plus one member, failing which the qualified majority shall be deemed attained;

(b) By way of derogation from point (a), where the Council does not act on a proposal from the Commission or from the High Representative of the Union for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy, the qualified majority shall be defined as at least 72 % of the members of the Council representing the participating Member States, comprising at least 65 % of the population of these States.’.

(b) paragraph 4 shall be deleted and paragraph 3 shall be renumbered 4.

***

Comment

We have to wait until 1 November 2014 for the new rules on qualified majority voting to take effect. Even then they are subject to further delays under the Protocol on transitional provisions.

***

Consolidated Lisbon Treaty

After a few months and the publication of a number of “private” consolidations, the Council graciously published a readable (consolidated) version of the Lisbon Treaty, first on its web pages in April and then in the Official Journal, on Europe Day 2008. In part, the amended Article 205 TEC became Article 238 of the Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union (TFEU) (OJEU 9.5.2008 C 115/153-154):

Article 238 TFEU
(ex Article 205(1) and (2), TEC)

1. Where it is required to act by a simple majority, the Council shall act by a majority of its component members.

2. By way of derogation from Article 16(4) of the Treaty on European Union, as from 1 November 2014 and subject to the provisions laid down in the Protocol on transitional provisions, where the Council does not act on a proposal from the Commission or from the High Representative of the Union for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy, the qualified majority shall be defined as at least 72 % of the members of the Council, representing Member States comprising at least 65 % of the population of the Union.

3. As from 1 November 2014 and subject to the provisions laid down in the Protocol on transitional provisions, in cases where, under the Treaties, not all the members of the Council participate in voting, a qualified majority shall be defined as follows:

(a) A qualified majority shall be defined as at least 55 % of the members of the Council representing the participating Member States, comprising at least 65 % of the population of these States.

A blocking minority must include at least the minimum number of Council members representing more than 35 % of the population of the participating Member States, plus one member, failing which the qualified majority shall be deemed attained;

(b) By way of derogation from point (a), where the Council does not act on a proposal from the Commission or from the High Representative of the Union for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy, the qualified majority shall be defined as at least 72 % of the members of the Council representing the participating Member States, comprising at least 65 % of the population of these States.

4. Abstentions by Members present in person or represented shall not prevent the adoption by the
Council of acts which require unanimity.

***

Article 16(4) and (5) TEU

The basic provisions on voting in the Council are paragraphs 4 and 5 of Article 16 of the Treaty on European Union (TEU), presented here as a reminder (OJEU 9.5.2008 C 115/24):

Article 16(4) and (5) TEU

4. As from 1 November 2014, a qualified majority shall be defined as at least 55 % of the members of the Council, comprising at least fifteen of them and representing Member States comprising at least 65 % of the population of the Union.

A blocking minority must include at least four Council members, failing which the qualified majority shall be deemed attained.

The other arrangements governing the qualified majority are laid down in Article 238(2) of the Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union.

5. The transitional provisions relating to the definition of the qualified majority which shall be applicable until 31 October 2014 and those which shall be applicable from 1 November 2014 to 31 March 2017 are laid down in the Protocol on transitional provisions.

***

Protocol on transitional provisions

Protocol (No 36) on transitional provisions is an illustration of treaty reform, which requires unanimous agreement between the member states and ratification by every member state. Three different stages are distinguished.

1) From the entry into force of the Treaty of Lisbon until 31 October 2014 the current rules on voting remain in force.
2) In principle, the Lisbon Treaty rules on qualified majority voting (QMV) are in effect between 1 November 2014 and 31 March 2017, subject to a request by a member of the Council to apply the old rules.
3) From 1 April 2017 the intended rules of the Lisbon Treaty become operational.

Protocol (No 36) on transitional provisions (excerpt; OJEU 9.5.2008 C 115/322-323):

PROTOCOL (No 36)
ON TRANSITIONAL PROVISIONS

THE HIGH CONTRACTING PARTIES,

WHEREAS, in order to organise the transition from the institutional provisions of the Treaties applicable prior to the entry into force of the Treaty of Lisbon to the provisions contained in that Treaty, it is necessary to lay down transitional provisions,

HAVE AGREED UPON the following provisions, which shall be annexed to the Treaty on European Union, to the Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union and to the Treaty establishing the European Atomic Energy Community:

Article 1

In this Protocol, the words ‘the Treaties’ shall mean the Treaty on European Union, the Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union and the Treaty establishing the European Atomic Energy Community.

—–

TITLE II
PROVISIONS CONCERNING THE QUALIFIED MAJORITY

Article 3

1. In accordance with Article 16(4) of the Treaty on European Union, the provisions of that paragraph and of Article 238(2) of the Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union relating to the definition of the qualified majority in the European Council and the Council shall take effect on 1 November 2014.

2. Between 1 November 2014 and 31 March 2017, when an act is to be adopted by qualified majority, a member of the Council may request that it be adopted in accordance with the qualified majority as defined in paragraph 3. In that case, paragraphs 3 and 4 shall apply.

3. Until 31 October 2014, the following provisions shall remain in force, without prejudice to the second subparagraph of Article 235(1) of the Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union.

For acts of the European Council and of the Council requiring a qualified majority, members’ votes shall be weighted as follows:

Belgium 12
Bulgaria 10
Czech Republic 12
Denmark 7
Germany 29
Estonia 4
Ireland 7
Greece 12
Spain 27
France 29
Italy 29
Cyprus 4
Latvia 4
Lithuania 7
Luxembourg 4
Hungary 12
Malta 3
Netherlands 13
Austria 10
Poland 27
Portugal 12
Romania 14
Slovenia 4
Slovakia 7
Finland 7
Sweden 10
United Kingdom 29

Acts shall be adopted if there are at least 255 votes in favour representing a majority of the members where, under the Treaties, they must be adopted on a proposal from the Commission. In other cases decisions shall be adopted if there are at least 255 votes in favour representing at least two thirds of the members.

A member of the European Council or the Council may request that, where an act is adopted by the European Council or the Council by a qualified majority, a check is made to ensure that the Member States comprising the qualified majority represent at least 62 % of the total population of the Union. If that proves not to be the case, the act shall not be adopted.

4. Until 31 October 2014, the qualified majority shall, in cases where, under the Treaties, not all the members of the Council participate in voting, namely in the cases where reference is made to the qualified majority as defined in Article 238(3) of the Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union, be defined as the same proportion of the weighted votes and the same proportion of the number of the Council members and, if appropriate, the same percentage of the population of the Member States concerned as laid down in paragraph 3 of this Article.

—   

On a different note I gather Nigel Farage’s old flatmate Godfrey Bloom, despite his denouncing Farage’s womanising most publicly and his having been overhead telling Herman Ke3lly an EFD goffer running flack and spin for TGL that effectively he should run along and stop making a fool of himself having threaterned Bloom with court action if he dared to repeat the fact that Nigel Farage had a sexual relationship with Annabelle Fuller and would likely bankrupt UKIP were he so stupid!
Despite Bloom’s rather belated various announcements of the truth to journalists and others regarding UKIP’s inner machinations and those of TGL in particular I gather Bloom was approached to wt nurse the incoming batch of thoroughly inept and inadequate UKIP MEPs none of whom would seem to be upto the job or carry with them the remotest gravitas, many of whom it has been shown bought their way to their own preferment and a number of whom clearly seek their own enrichment both of stature and income, a number being rejects and failures from the Tory Party.
I gather the new position as wet nurse was to be unsalaried! Whether Farage is still looking for someone to do his job for Free I do not know, but I do note he has sidestepped the bulk of his responsibility by appointing the Tory reject Roger Helmer as leader of UKIP in the EU – whilst he moves on to greater rewards and income as leader of the extremist and all too racist EFDD.

Has David Cameron Created His Own & Nigel Farage’s Worst Nightmare, with both Owen Paterson & Liam Fox as big hitterts both now able and willing to speak out & tell the truth about The EU – actively campaigning to Leave_The_EU?

.

~~~~~~~~~~#########~~~~~~~~~~
.Hi,
neither Owen Paterson quoted extensively below nor Liam Fox who featured in today’s Times can be as easily dismissed as others when it comes to views on membership of the EU – as both are clearly experienced big hitters and there is no element to the publicity seeking clown about either of them.
All too readily others who have opposed membership of the EU can be dismissed as lightweights seeking attention or enrichment by representing a populist view and unlike others there is no element of reject nor failure about these two men, who have clearly thought the issues through and can measure the facts against actual experience in high office and not just as irrelevant EU makewights as MEPs clearly are.
Further with the adoption of responsible and clearly thought through plans for the methodology of Leaving_The_EU they do offer a responsible eXit and survival strategy in the form of The FleXcit plan which is more than adequate in its coverage and growing apace in its detail – unlike UKip who have never been able to present a workable eXit and survival strategy in their 21 years despite much braying!
Even to this day there are some in UKip and even on the back benches of the Tory Party who would be naiive enough to believe that to Leave_The_EU is but a simple matter of passing an Act of Parliament repealing our membership! Some are so ill informed and gullible as to believe that Article #50 is some form of trap, showing just how expensive are the tin foil hatters and conspiracy thjeorists amongst the ranks of EUroSceptics.
Sadly tyhe naiive  who have been duped into the belief that rescinding our membership would be simple it is clear they can not be blamed because why should they be better informed having put their trust in politicians who have not only created this evil monster but embroilled these United Kingdoms in the mess which was their dream – these are the same self styled political elite who are either so stupid as to believe or so dishonest as to claim that the EU can be reformed and powers repatriated.
Do not forget that some who sold our Country out to be vassals of the new EU Empire were so corrupt and treacherous as to boast they had not read the documents they had not only voted for but signed!

Owen Paterson: I’m proud of standing up to the green lobby

Writing for The Telegraph, the former environment secretary, Owen Paterson, says he is proud of standing up to the green lobby

Every prime minister has the right to choose his team to take Britain into the general election and I am confident that my able successor at Defra, Liz Truss, will do an excellent job. It has been a privilege to take on the challenges of the rural economy and environment. However, I leave the post with great misgivings about the power and irresponsibility of – to coin a phrase – the Green Blob.

By this I mean the mutually supportive network of environmental pressure groups, renewable energy companies and some public officials who keep each other well supplied with lavish funds, scare stories and green tape. This tangled triangle of unelected busybodies claims to have the interests of the planet and the countryside at heart, but it is increasingly clear that it is focusing on the wrong issues and doing real harm while profiting handsomely.

Local conservationists on the ground do wonderful work to protect and improve wild landscapes, as do farmers, rural businesses and ordinary people. They are a world away from the highly paid globe-trotters of the Green Blob who besieged me with their self-serving demands, many of which would have harmed the natural environment.

I soon realised that the greens and their industrial and bureaucratic allies are used to getting things their own way. I received more death threats in a few months at Defra than I ever did as secretary of state for Northern Ireland. My home address was circulated worldwide with an incitement to trash it; I was burnt in effigy by Greenpeace as I was recovering from an operation to save my eyesight. But I did not set out to be popular with lobbyists and I never forgot that they were not the people I was elected to serve.

Indeed, I am proud that my departure was greeted with such gloating by spokespeople for the Green Party and Friends of the Earth.

It was not my job to do the bidding of two organisations that are little more than anti-capitalist agitprop groups most of whose leaders could not tell a snakeshead fritillary from a silver-washed fritillary. I saw my task as improving both the environment and the rural economy; many in the green movement believed in neither.

Their goal was to enhance their own income streams and influence by myth making and lobbying. Would they have been as determined to blacken my name if I was not challenging them rather effectively?

When I arrived at Defra I found a department that had become under successive Labour governments a milch cow for the Green Blob.

Just as Michael Gove set out to refocus education policy on the needs of children rather than teachers and bureaucrats and Iain Duncan Smith set out to empower the most vulnerable, so I began to reorganise the department around four priorities: to grow the rural economy, to improve the environment, and to safeguard both plant and animal health.

The Green Blob sprouts especially vigorously in Brussels. The European Commission website reveals that a staggering 150 million euros (£119  million) was paid to the top nine green NGOs from 2007-13.

European Union officials give generous grants to green groups so that they will lobby it for regulations that then require large budgets to enforce. When I attended a council meeting of elected EU ministers on shale gas in Lithuania last year, we were lectured by a man using largely untrue clichés about the dangers of shale gas. We discovered that he was from the European Environment Bureau, an umbrella group for unelected, taxpayer-subsidised green lobby groups. Speaking of Europe, I remain proud to have achieved some renegotiations.

The discard ban ends the scandalous practice of throwing away perfectly edible fish, we broke the council deadlock on GM crops, so decisions may be repatriated to member countries and we headed off bans on fracking. Judge me by my opponents.

When I proposed a solution to the dreadful suffering of cattle, badgers and farmers as a result of the bovine tuberculosis epidemic that Labour allowed to develop, I was opposed by rich pop stars who had never been faced with having to cull a pregnant heifer. (Interestingly, very recent local evidence suggests the decline in TB in the cull area may already have begun.)

When I spoke up for the landscapes of this beautiful country against the heavily subsidised industry that wants to spoil them with wind turbines at vast cost to ordinary people, vast reward to rich landowners and undetectable effects on carbon dioxide emissions, I was frustrated by colleagues from the so-called Liberal Democrat Party.

When I encouraged the search for affordable energy from shale gas to help grow the rural economy and lift people out of fuel poverty, I was opposed by a dress designer for whom energy bills are trivial concerns.

When I championed brilliant scientists demonstrating genetic modifications to rice to save the lives of hundreds of thousands of children in developing countries, I was vilified by a luxury organic chocolate tycoon uninterested in the demonstrable environmental and humanitarian benefits of GM crops.

When faced with the flooding of the Somerset Levels I refused to make the popular and false excuse of blaming it on global warming, but set out to reverse the policy inherited from a Labour peeress and serial quangocrat who had expressed the wish to “place a limpet mine on every pumping station”, while deliberately allowing the silting up of drainage channels.

When I set out to shatter the crippling orthodoxy that growing the rural economy and improving the environment are mutually exclusive, I was ridiculed by a public school journalist who thinks the solution to environmental problems is “an ordered and structured downsizing of the global economy”. Back to the Stone Age, in other words, but Glastonbury-style.

Yes, I’ve annoyed these people, but they don’t represent the real countryside of farmers and workers, of birds and butterflies.

Like the nationalised industries and obstructive trade unions of the 1970s, the Green Blob has become a powerful self-serving caucus; it is the job of the elected politician to stand up to them. We must have the courage to tackle it head on, as Tony Abbott in Australia and Stephen Harper in Canada have done, or the economy and the environment will both continue to suffer.

This week, Booker takes up cudgels on behalf of Owen Paterson. Of all David Cameron’s moves in that bizarre reshuffle, he writes, one told us more about his judgement and character than any. It is hard to recall recently a more direct political insult than his contemptuous sacking of our Environment Secretary; a man who, below the media radar, has been the most effective of all his ministers.

The feelings of those aware of what Paterson achieved in two hectic years were expressed on Friday when he attended the Game Fair in Oxfordshire. Mentions of his name twice brought standing ovations from hundreds of disbelieving country folk, once in response to a fulsome tribute paid him by Nigel Farage.

When Paterson was made Secretary of State for the Environment, Food and Rural Affairs he was, in practical terms, far better qualified for the post than anyone in the House of Commons. Some years earlier, as a countryman himself, he was a superbly well-briefed front-bench spokesman on agriculture and fisheries, travelling the world to meet experts on the scourge of bovine TB and fisheries management.

In September 2012, he took over a department that for years had been a sadly dysfunctional backwater, not least because, more than any other ministry, almost all its vast and complex responsibilities, from farming and fisheries to water and waste management, are subordinate to policies originating in Brussels.

One of his more remarkable achievements, as a “Eurosceptic” but also as a good French and German speaker, was the way he quickly came to play a leading role in all those endless meetings with his European counterparts, working the Brussels system as cleverly as any British minister has ever done, winning respect by his practical grasp and good humour even from those who disagreed with him.

Gradually, he galvanised Defra out of its long sleep, turning it into an effective player, as we saw nowhere more than in my own county of Somerset, where he made such a decisive intervention in last winter’s floods crisis and won the gratitude of hundreds of farmers for his masterminding of our remarkably successful badger cull.

This summer, dairy farms that have been losing scores of cattle every year to TB are reporting that, for the first time in decades, their herds are free of infection.

In “Westminster bubble” and media terms, none of this has counted for anything. Enraged green activists and their media allies tried to paint Paterson as “the worst environment minister ever”, while out in the countryside he is rated as easily the best.

But the tsunami of vitriolic green propaganda is all that the denizens of No 10 seemed to notice. Mr Cameron and his urban advisers were so embarrassed by the anti-Paterson hate campaign, over everything from badgers to wind farms, fracking to GM crops, that he had to be fired.

The respect Paterson had won in fighting for common sense and British interests, not just from millions of country folk but from his opposite numbers in Brussels, was far less important than what were perceived to be the electoral interests of his party.

He is replaced by a woman who appears to have no qualifications for the job and who will be totally out of her depth in Brussels. Defra will once again sink back into its dysfunctional torpor, under a minister wholly in the hands of officials who will have to tell her what to say, think and do about everything.

Cameron’s treatment of his most effective minister is not just an insult to Paterson – it is also an insult to the countryside and to the political process; a surrender to those who put mindless spin above the need to see our country sensibly and intelligently run.

When the epitaph comes to be written on Cameron’s bid to create a “Not the Conservative Party”, Booker concludes, the ignominious sacking of Owen Paterson will be seen as one of the most revealing of all his many mistakes.

Hi,
it is a bitter irony for the Farage cult that after long years of desperate efforts to attract sitting Tory MPs, having only attracted the Tory’s failures and rejects, now the closest they are likely to come to having an MP elected, to Westminster next year, may well be an ex UKIP leader of UKIP who defected to the Tories several years ago.
Farage’s party has always been seen as a protest party as shown by their dismal showing in UK domestic elections when you consider they haven’t had a single candidate even come close to being elected to Westminster even in a by-election with all the odds on their side, as when they used the enbittered ex Tory long term MEP when they were riding the crest of there wve after the EU elections.
A measure of their failure in domestic politics has been their failure to have a single Mayor and the faxt that more Independents were elected as Police Crime Commissioners by a long shot than Farage had any chance of whilst their percentage of Councillors across the country has been risible and a significant number of them have had to resign due to their racist outbursts and general idiocy!
Now Craig MacKinlay stands every chance of being elected in Thanet possibly running against Farage, whose best achievement to date in Thanet, where he stood in 2005, was a meagre 2,079 votes and when he stood against John Berkow in Berkshire with both Labbour & the Lib.Dims. fielding no candidate in respect for the parliamentary convention of not standing against The Speaker of the House, he was beaten into third place by a relatively unknown Independent & Farage obtained a poor third with only 8%.
Craig MacKinlay stands every probability of being elected to the seat when he stands in 2015 to replace the Tory MP, Laura Sandys when she stands down. There is every possibility that Farage will not stand against MacKinlay as it would be the death nell of his party were he to be defeated in such a clash, as it would show all too clearly he has converted his party to a cult rather than as a serious political contender in domestic politics.
Having surrounded himself with ‘Praise Singers’ whom he has hansomely rewarded in return for their sycophancy and in some cases cash, with places high on his MEP selection list – thus having a gaggle of stunningly insignioficant and largely irrelevant MEPs willing to turn a blind eye to the racism and extremisim of many of UKIP’s members and particularly Farage’s chosen associates to build his ‘Milch Cow’ in the EU parliament for his EFDD vehicle.

Ex-Ukip leader Craig Mackinlay set to stand as Conservative MP for Thanet South

Thanet South was believed to be one of the constituencies Ukip leader Nigel Farage could have contested in next year’s general election

An ex-Ukip leader has been selected to stand as the Conservative candidate for the Kent constituency of Thanet South in next year’s general election.

Craig Mackinlay has been chosen by the Conservative Party to replace Laura Sandys as the candidate for the election set to take place in May 2015.

Mackinlay, who temporarily led Ukip in 1997 before being replaced by Michael Holmes, said in June that there was a “distinct possibility” that he could stand as the Tory candidate for the seat.

In 2005, Farage finished fourth when he stood in the same constituency, and it is believed he is eyeing up the seat for next year’s election.

A decision on which constituency Farage will contest is expected to be announced later this summer.

Mackinlay began his political career in the early 1990s as part of Alan Sked’s Anti-Federalist League, the party that would later become the UK Independence Party.

After being chosen as the person to replace Sked, he lost a leadership vote to Michael Holmes in 1997 and was demoted to the role of Ukip’s Deputy Leader until 2000.

Remaining active in the party for another five years, in 2005 he decided to switch allegiances and join the Conservative Party where he has served as a Tory councillor in the Medway council ever since.

He was also chosen as the Conservative candidate for Kent’s first ever Police and Crime Commissioner Elections in November 2012.

Farage has refused to comment on the Conservative’s decision to put forward his former Ukip colleague for the seat.

Mr Mackinlay will be up against Will Scobie (Labour), Russ Timpson (Liberal Democrats) and Ian Driver (Green Party)

Knives out for Ukip boss

Plans to oust Ukip chairman Victor Webb


KNIVES appear to be out for the long-standing Tunbridge Wells Ukip boss with plans to oust him as chairman of the party’s local branch.

Victor Webb, who secured the first Ukip seat on Tunbridge Wells Borough Council in 2011, is under threat from members of his own party.

An extraordinary general meeting has been called for Wednesday where members will be urged to vote him out as chairman of Ukip Tunbridge Wells constituency branch.

Mr Webb told the Courier: “They will vote to replace me.

“I think people have been told ‘the committee can’t get on with him’ or ‘the committee can’t work with him’ and that it would be better if I stood down.

“I don’t know how it will go. I think if all the membership were fully invited, in the circumstances, they would not like it and not vote for it (but) I don’t know if all members have been invited.

“I don’t even know yet where the meeting is being held.”

Mr Webb was a high-profile local campaigner for Ukip for 14 years before he was elected on to the borough council.

He has the highest attendance record out of all the council’s 48 members, having attended 48 meetings in the last municipal year.

He was a familiar feature at the Millennium Clock – which he dubbed ‘Tunbridge Wells’ own Speaker’s Corner – with a loud hailer and his bulldog dressed in a Union Flag.

Mr Webb said he believed fellow Ukip member and borough councillor Piers Wauchope – who won the second seat in Mr Webb’s ward of Rusthall two years ago – was behind the plan to turf him out.

Mr Wauchope attended five borough council meetings in the past year.

Asked how he would feel if he was ousted, Mr Webb said: “I would feel let down and feel it was manoeuvring by Piers who seems to be on his own agenda. I have spent 14 years slogging away for Ukip, I believe in its principles and I am hoping Piers will be removed and when he is there will be a happy ship again. One member of Ukip has written to me and said ‘this stinks’.”

Asked if he would consider standing as an independent because of the political plotting, he said: “I have considered going independent.”

The minutes of Ukip’s committee meeting on May 28 state: “A proposal was carried that an extraordinary general meeting of the Tunbridge Wells branch be called to consider a motion to be proposed by councillor Piers Wauchope and seconded by Chris Hoare that the councillor Victor Webb be replaced as chairman of the Tunbridge Wells Ukip branch.”

When asked directly if he was lobbying to oust his local party chairman, Mr Wauchope refused to reply, stating: “Victor is the hardest-working councillor in Tunbridge Wells and a great asset not only for Rusthall but for everyone in the borough.”
