Clean EUkip up NOW make UKIP electable! 

.

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

is what gives the remaining 10% a bad name!  

.

Shameful Ukip Efforts To Justify Racism are as unacceptable as lame efforts to explain them or apologies to exhonorate them!

Hi,
 
minded of just how low are Ukip’s standards for candidates, as made more than abundantly clear by just how low grade are their elected MEPs and most of their Councillors surely it is long overdue that their unprofessional behaviour was formally investigated – especially as not just do they  survive on private donations but in even greater measure they receive massive amounts from the public purse funded by tax payers and profligately distributed by the EU.
Consider the all too apparent fact that jobs are handed out under the control of Nigel Farage who stands alleged to have squandered public money on both his wife and other sexual partners.
Now we hear that another of Ukip’s executive would seem to have been doctoring CVs and granting positions in return for sexual favours – just howmany of Ukip’s elected MEPs and Councillors are only there because they were willing to have sex with selectors + of course staff!
Now we note that Ukip’s staffer charged by Ukip to vet candidates failed to pick up the simplest of lies on behalf of Natasha Bolter!
Perhaps a good look at the work experience and details of the employment record of Kerry Smith might clarify his grounding in racism and offensive comments that could well have seen him removed from a front line position with the BNP!
Minded of Mr. Smith’s comments made in a conversation with Joanna Cunningham.which was recorded (Joanna Cunningham.currently works as an activist for Ukip in Thurrock with/for Tim Aker!) and as for Smith’s utterly implausible claim of having made the series of offensive remarks due to taking painkillers!Firstly just what painkillers have a personality changing effect and as there are none that are available without prescription I do not believe his excuse – particularly having been the recipient of some of the strongest such drugs available in the past myself.

Secondly just how gullible are the utter incompetents in Ukip who seek to defend Mr. Smith’s vile behaviour.
Thirdly I do not believe it is reasonable to believe that Mr. Smith has EVER held a responsible job in the light of his vile beliefs, in fact just what employer would find his views acceptable, surely the electorate should be able to cast an informed vote and the idiotic view that a simple apology is adequate to mitigate his odious comments is beneath contempt – on a par with much else that Ukip does!

Ukip official in charge of vetting candidates admits he spends half his time ‘weeding out the lunatics’

  • David Soutter said he did not have time to find good new candidates
  • Comes after a series of scandals which have rocked the party this week 
  • One candidate recorded making a series of astonishing remarks 
  • Kerry Smith, chosen to fight Basildon South seat, referred to‘old pooftahs’
  • Mr Smith issued an ‘unreserved’ apology and retracted corruption claim

The Ukip official charged with vetting the party’s election candidates has revealed he spends half his time ‘weeding out the lunatics’.

David Soutter told Ukip activists he was not able to spend enough time finding good new candidates – because he was too busy getting rid of people ‘who shouldn’t be there’.

The remarks come after one Ukip candidate was recorded making homophobic, racist and obscene comments – while another was exposed as a fantasist after becoming embroiled in a public sex scandal.

In recorded comments passed to the Sunday Times, Mr Souter said the party needed to become more disciplined, 

He said: ‘One of the things that Ukip has lacked as a party — and looking at it the way I’ve been able to from the outside — discipline is one of the things that’s really been missing.

‘Half my job is spent not finding good candidates to stand, it is weeding out the lunatics, the people who shouldn’t be there.’

Mr Soutter had even resorted to ‘doing tests to make sure people were vaguely sane and that they could string their words together more or less’, Ukip’s Scottish MEP David Coburn said.

Mr Souter’s role vetting party candidates was thrown into the spotlight last week over his failure to spot a series of glaring errors on the CV of leading Ukip candidate Natasha Bolter.

Ms Bolter was introduced to the Ukip party conference as a Labour defector, who taught at a local comprehensive school and had a degree from Oxford University.

But after she accused the party’s general secretary Roger Bird of sexual harassment it emerged that she never attended Oxford – and may not have been a teacher.

Doubts were first raised about her account after a series of affectionate text messages she sent to Mr Bird were published.

EXCLUSIVE: Leaked phone calls expose rants of Ukip man
 

 

In a shock announcement on Monday evening, Ukip announced Mr Bird had been suspended while it investigated allegations of ‘impropriety’.

On Tuesday Mrs Bolter gave an interview claiming to have been the victim of sexual harassment.

But Mr Bird has said the pair were in a relationship. Mrs Bolter told the BBC’s Newsnight: ‘I didn’t sleep with Roger Bird, end of.’ But he insisted: ‘For the record, yes she did.’

The scandal came after a series of tape-recorded phone calls were leaked to The Mail on Sunday, showing party candidate Kerry Smith, chosen to fight Ukip target seat of Basildon South in Essex making a series of offensive remarks.

In the tape he mocks ‘f***ing disgusting old pooftahs’ who belong to a Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender and Questioning group, calling them ‘BLTs’ – bacon, lettuce and tomato.

He also jokes about ‘shooting peasants’ and refers to a woman with a Chinese name as a ‘Chinky.’

But Mr Farage last night refused to sack Mr Smith. A well-placed Ukip official said: ‘Kerry wants to make a full apology and is hoping it all blows over.’

Ukip MEP Patrick O’Flynn today defended Mr Smith – claiming he had been drugs at the time.

He said: “This was a phone call sometime ago while he was on sedatives by his own account, not really speaking, thinking rationally. He was on prescription sedatives after suffering an injury.’

But he said: ‘Using derogatory terminology, this slang, is not right at this level of politics and you shouldn’t do it.’

‘Clearly what he said there is unacceptable. He’s apologised unreservedly, there are big mitigating circumstances, it’s from some time ago, and we’re willing now to judge him on his performance going forward from this.’

Ukip game to rate ‘blacks’ and Muslims to win £100… or golf umbrella: Farage in another race row over ‘rate on immigrant’ survey 

The Ukip leader has found himself embroiled in another row over race

The Ukip leader has found himself embroiled in another row over race

Nigel Farage was in another race row last night after asking supporters to rate ‘blacks, Muslims and Eastern Europeans’ in a game – with prizes of cash and a Ukip golf umbrella.

The ‘rate an immigrant’ survey is part of a Ukip private survey of members aimed at helping the party draw up its policies.

Sent last week by Ukip chairman Steve Crowther, it asks members to say ‘how close they feel’ to a number of groups.

They include ‘Blacks, Asians, Muslims, English, Eastern Europeans and Whites’ as well as the four main political parties.

Ukip activists are urged to rate each on a scale from 0 for ‘not close at all’ to 10 for ‘very close.’

But the survey was slammed as a racist stunt after details were leaked to The Mail on Sunday.

Last night, senior Labour MP Margaret Hodge condemned the Ukip survey as ‘shocking’.

Mrs Hodge, who won a campaign against the BNP in her Barking constituency in east London, said: ‘This openly brings race into politics. It’s shameful, it’s shocking and it’s offensive.

‘It lifts the lid on the unacceptable face of Ukip.’ The survey comes after a series of claims of racism involving Ukip, although Farage has insisted ‘stupid or offensive’ comments by a handful of candidates ‘never have and never will’ represent the views of his party.

The email to thousands of Ukip members from chairman Crowther is headed: ‘Help the Party and Win Prizes!’

It declares: ‘Ukip is growing quickly. We want to strengthen our party by understanding our rapidly growing membership. We are asking all our members to complete a new survey.’

The aim was to ‘use the insights to strengthen the Ukip operation… Your responses will be invaluable in making sure we fulfil our promises over the coming years – and in government!

‘So please, do complete the survey. It should be fun! You might even win some prizes!’

Prizes included ‘one prize of £100, two of £50, three prizes of a Ukip golf umbrella, four prizes of £25, five Ukip notebooks and six Ukip pocket diaries.’

Other Ukip race rows include:

  • National executive member Gerard Batten’s call for Muslims to sign a ‘charter of understanding’ in which they rejected violence and parts of the Koran that promote ‘violent physical Jihad.’
  • Parliamentary candidate in Grimsby Victoria Ayling was recorded saying ‘let’s keep the blacks out’. Council candidate Andre Lampitt said Africans should ‘kill themselves’.
  • Council candidate William Henwood said Lenny Henry should ‘emigrate to a black country’.
  • Exeter activist David Challice denounced the ‘lunacy of multiculturalism’ and called Greeks ‘vile’.
  • Town hall candidate David Wycherley said Mo Farah was African, not British.

A Ukip spokesman denied the survey was racist, claiming every major employer carried out similar research of their staff.

AND THEN:

Later on Sunday evening Kerry Smith realised his position was utterly untenable and quit before he came under closer scrutiny and to avoid the inevitable embarrassment of being fired by Ukip.
Surely now it is apposite for the various corrupt members who sought to justify Smith’s vile behaviour must be forced to consider their own positions and just how corrupt was their support for him – minded that in fact with such a lack of judgement they were bound to be considered unfit for office!

Kerry Smith resigns as Ukip candidate following homophobic and racist remarks

Smith was reselected as candidate for South Basildon and East Thurrock following the resignation of Natasha Bolter over claims of sexual harassment by the party’s general secretary

 

Ukip’s Kerry Smith has resigned as the party’s candidate in a top target seat after it emerged he had made homophobic and racist remarks and joked about shooting poor people.

In recordings of phone calls obtained by the Mail on Sunday, the would-be MP for South Basildon and East Thurrock was said to have mocked gay party members as “disgusting poofters”, joked about shooting people from Chigwell in a “peasant hunt” and referred to someone with a Chinese name as a “Chinky bird”.

Mr Smith was deselected as the Ukip candidate for the seat, considered to be winnable by the party, in October and replaced by Natasha Bolter, but then she quit claiming she had been sexually harassed by Ukip’s general secretary, Roger Bird, who has denied the claims.

 

Former Tory minister Neil Hamilton was then seen as the likely candidate but he withdrew on the night of the hustings after a letter from Ukip’s finance committee asking him to explain his expenses claims was leaked to Channel 4 News.

Mr Hamilton claimed he had been the victim of a “dirty tricks” campaign, but backed Mr Smith who was selected last week.

However, amid reports that internecine warfare had broken out between supporters of Mr Hamilton and Ukip leader Nigel Farage, the Mail on Sunday newspaper obtained a recording of Mr Smith making a string of offensive remarks.

He initially apologised and explained that he had been under great stress at the time of the comments and taking strong pain killers.

But in a statement on Sunday night, Mr Smith said: “I have this evening offered my resignation as Ukip PPC for South Basildon and East Thurrock.

“I want the best for South Basildon and East Thurrock and I want to see the real issues discussed that touch the lives of people.

“Therefore I have chosen to resign so that Ukip can win this seat next May.”

In the recording, Mr Smith described the fact that Ukip’s LGBTQ group was allowed to use the party’s logo with a rainbow flag as “f***ing disgusting”.
