Hi,this seems something of a non story as it does seem to be based upon the FACT that some 1,400 children were groomed and abused in Rotheram and it was clearly on Labour’s watch – so it would seem  they are unlikely to have a case to bring.However, that Ukip has been placed in this position just shows the low caliber of Ukip’s representatives that they lack the ability to guard their words to prevent embarrassment to the cult.

Rotherham’s three Labour MPs to sue UKIP MEP for slander

Sarah Champion MP, John Healey MP and Kevin Barron MPMPs Sarah Champion, John Healey and Kevin Barron are taking action against UKIP’s Jane Collins and Cavan Vines

Rotherham’s three Labour MPs say they are suing two UKIP politicians over remarks made about them in relation to the town’s child abuse scandal.

Sarah Champion, John Healey and Kevin Barron are taking action against MEP Jane Collins for libel and slander for comments she made at a UKIP conference, which they believe are defamatory.

They are also suing Rotherham UKIP group leader Caven Vines for libel.

About 1,400 children were abused in the town from 1997 to 2013, a report found.

Mr Barron and Mr Healey are taking action against Mr Vines for remarks he made in a Sky News interview.

In a joint statement, Ms Champion, Mr Healey and Mr Barron said: “It is sickening that UKIP could use such an important issue for party political point scoring, and we will challenge these defamatory accusations through every means available to prove they are untrue and to stop UKIP exploiting the terrible abuse for their own political gain.”

A UKIP spokesperson speaking on behalf of Mrs Collins and Mr Vines said: “We are unable to comment at the moment, as this is an ongoing case.”

MEP for Yorkshire and North Lincolnshire Jane Collins is being sued by three Labour MPs over remarks made about the child abuse scandal in Rotherham. 

The UKIP MEP is being sued by Sarah Champion, John Healey and Kevin Barron for libel and slander for comments she made at a UKIP conference, which they believe are defamatory, the BBC reports. 

In a joint statement, Ms Champion, Mr Healey and Mr Barron said: “It is sickening that UKIP could use such an important issue for party political point scoring, and we will challenge these defamatory accusations through every means available to prove they are untrue and to stop UKIP exploiting the terrible abuse for their own political gain.”

MPs sue Ukip MEP over child abuse

Three Labour MPs are suing a Ukip MEP over “sickening” allegations that they knew about child abuse in Rotherham.

 

Sarah Champion, John Healy and Kevin Barron have announced they are taking action against Jane Collins for libel and slander.

The move follows Ms Collins’ speech to the Ukip conference in Doncaster in September, in which she referred to the report by Professor Alexis Jay that found 1,400 children had been targeted over more than a decade.

The MEP, who is the party’s general election candidate for Rotherham Central, said she was convinced local MPs “knew many of the details of what was happening”.

But in a joint statement, Ms Champion, Mr Healey and Mr Barron said: “It is sickening that Ukip could use such an important issue for party-political point-scoring, and we will challenge these defamatory accusations through every means available to prove they are untrue and to stop Ukip exploiting the terrible abuse for their own political gain.”

Mr Barron and Mr Healey said they were also taking libel action against Rotherham Ukip group leader Caven Vines for repeating similar accusations in an interview.

Based upon Ukip’s track record this would seem to imply that there is yet another skeleton in the cupboard that they fear will spill out due to the ineptitude of Ukip’s selection process, lack of competent leadership and failures of its press office (yet again).Alternatively we are about to see that Ukip’s democratic process has been ignored and Nigel Farage or one of his cronies has a pet candidate they wish to parachute into the position as so often happens, regardless of their suitability and competence as with Godfrey Bloom, David Bannerman, Marta Andreasen, and many others who subsequently befouled the party!There is of course a further explanation as the media shows, which shows John Stanyer was an ex Tory who may well have been parachuted into position against the wish of the local activists himself – as would seem to be given some credence HERE

Seems ‘The thick plotens’.

Hi,

I must say that seeking out how others see us is always an interesting excercise as it shows such a different view to that of either ones own view or the view put forward by those under analysis.

Perhaps this should be done far more often as not only would it tend to break the deeply incestuous beliefs of political parties and public service groups like the BBC, The Civil Service, The Military and the like – Not to mention the self proclaimed introspection of the Westminster Elite or those with self important roles for which they over pay themselves such as Councils and EU Assemblies.

It might even enlighten the blind in Britain, America and elsewhere who see some kind of merit in shooting and bombing people to force them into democracy in a model which we ourselves have failed to either standardise, codify or anywhere near perfect!

Britain’s Pat Buchanan Party

A less libertarian, more populist UKIP terrifies London’s elite.
By Timothy Stanley • January 15, 2015
FARAGE, Nigel  106 DEAD MAN WALKING

A fascinating thing about the United Kingdom Independence Party (UKIP): the worse its press, the better it does. In the run-up to the Clacton parliamentary by-election in October—a race to see whether defecting Tory MP Douglas Carswell would return to Parliament under UKIP’s banner—Matthew Parris of the Times devoted his column to ridiculing not just UKIP but its elderly supporters: “Clacton-on-Sea is a friendly resort trying not to die, inhabited by friendly people trying not to die.” UKIP won the election with nearly 60 percent of the vote. In the aftermath of November’s by-election in Rochester and Strood—which settled the fate of another Tory defector, Mark Reckless—the Guardian’s Nick Cohen described UKIP as “an alliance of the septic and the geriatric: a movement of the empty-headed led by the foul-minded.” Cohen concluded that while the party wasn’t quite fascist, it certainly played with racism. In which case, there must be an awful lot of closet Nazis in Rochester because UKIP had just won the seat with 42 percent of the vote.

The sheer disgust that many liberals direct at UKIP reflects the fact that Britain is undergoing a culture war. On the side of ordinary folk with old-fashioned tastes is UKIP. Pitched against them is the entire edifice of the metropolitan elite located in the nicer bits of London: the mainstream parties, big business, and the media. That this battle is taking place is no shock to anyone with eyes and ears. But that UKIP has become the people’s party is a real surprise, considering its beginnings on the marginal, eccentric right.

UKIP was founded in 1993 by academic Alan Sked. He intended the party to be a broad vehicle for opposition to Britain’s membership in the European Union—a cause that has long attracted people from the right and left. The right attacks the EU’s infringement of sovereignty, whereas the left regards it as an effort to impose free-market capitalism from above. But while Sked hoped to create some grand coalition of the high-minded, the early party quickly became a bolt hole for ex-Conservative Party members concerned with what they saw as growing softness within Torydom. Sked quit as leader shortly after the 1997 general election that swept the Labour Party to power. UKIP, he said, had become “infected by the far-right.” He called its new leader, Nigel Farage, “a dimwitted racist.”

Nevertheless, the conditions of the 2000s were the perfect incubator for UKIP’s politics of anxiety. British household debt more than quadrupled since 1990, pockets of poverty festered, and new issues emerged that liberals did not want to discuss in front of the children. The government signed a treaty with the EU that opened Britain’s markets to East European immigrants. Labour predicted that just 13,000 would arrive. The actual number was more than one million. While all this was going on, politicians were engaged in a race to the center. Labour abandoned its old economic socialism, and the Tories became more socially tolerant.

The result was that when the credit crunch hit in 2008, all the parties looked eerily similar, and any voter who wanted serious reform of the system had few options within the mainstream. The Conservative Party won the 2010 election, with enough seats to form a coalition government, on the strength that it wasn’t the Labour Party—but it lacked broad-based popular support or the enthusiasm of its restive right-wing base. One of Prime Minister David Cameron’s first priorities was to legalize gay marriage.

UKIP took a long time to exploit this situation effectively. In 2004, it placed third in elections for the European parliament on a quit-the-EU platform; in 2009, UKIP came second. The party was definitively, maybe crazily, right-wing. Its manifesto was Thatcherite, with a prominent libertarian streak: no gay marriage, but perhaps some decriminalization of drugs and a hearty endorsement of flatter taxes and smaller government. Had more people read and understood the manifesto, they might never have voted for it—but it had a great salesman in Nigel Farage, party leader, but for a brief hiatus, since 2006. Farage smokes unashamedly, drinks thirstily, has an eye for feminine pulchritude, and is at home talking politics with the man down the pub. To meet him is to instantly like him—if you like that sort of thing. To centrist politicians raised on a puritan diet of political correctness, he is like some horror from the mummy’s tomb. But to those who wear a hangover with pride, Farage is a tonic to politics as usual.

Farage’s populism helped UKIP reach out to working-class voters who typically stuck with the left. All the time that journalists—such as myself—were characterizing UKIP as the part of the wealthy country-club set, the party was quietly capitalizing upon the growing sense that Labour had lost its soul. Two urban myths appeared to confirm the death of the left: it is commonly said that half of Labour’s membership lives in London and that half is composed of state school teachers. These statistics are based upon leaks and rumors rather than concrete facts, but they paint a picture that fits with the prejudices of voters who have come to identify less and less with socialism and more and more with Farage’s sociability. In 2014, UKIP placed first in the European elections and, for the first time, ate greedily into Labour’s vote. thisarticleappeared-janfeb15

At this point, the party changed. UKIP was always torn between those who saw it as an anti-European pressure group, trying to move Britain to the right without ever taking power, and those who wanted it to emerge as a serious party capable of winning seats on a platform that would ally the socially conservative middle class and the economically blighted working class. In the wake of its victory in Labour areas during the European elections, the party embraced the latter, more populist strategy. The old manifesto was dropped in favor of offering something to everyone who felt locked out of mainstream politics: protection of the National Health Service, the promise of lower taxes, withdrawal from the EU and, crucially, a new emphasis upon reducing European immigration. UKIP insists that it simply wants to create a more level playing field, ending the bias towards unskilled European immigration and welcoming skilled workers from the rest of the world. But on the campaign trail it is obvious what voters have interpreted this new political direction to mean: UKIP will safeguard your job by closing the borders.

Comparisons with American populist presidential candidates are striking. Figures like Pat Buchanan—who in 1992 and 1996 wanted to outlaw abortion and build a border fence, while also protecting American businesses with trade barriers—are accused of philosophical inconsistency by those who just didn’t get their appeal. Yet this mix of left- and right-wing ideas makes perfect sense if you see yourself as the representative not of an ideological tradition but of a particular constituency—the constituency of people who once had something but who feel they’ve lost it, and they want it back.

It is often said, with little proof, that UKIP voters want to turn Britain back to the 1950s. To which one has to ask, “And why not?” Who wouldn’t want to return to an era of world power, mass church attendance, and jobs for life? Speaking to voters in both Clacton and Rochester, I was struck by the narrative of decline. In Clacton, one woman told me that because of mass immigration it was impossible for young people to get low-skilled jobs anymore—so they hit the bottle, did drugs, went on benefits, or fled to London. Once upon a time, Clacton was a thriving seaside town. Now the glamour is faded; the pier is empty, the amusement rides stand silent.

Things were also grim in Rochester, where the hospital has for years been stuck in special measures (a notice of failed performance) and the visitor is struck by the sense of post-industrial decay. Sitting with UKIP’s candidate on a park bench in front of the breezy Medway River, I was told that in fact the constituency enjoyed falling crime and rising employment. But that statistical evidence is eclipsed by the bigger truth that large swathes of Britain are ignored by the powerful. Politics, culture, and finance are London-centric. People trying to build lives and do jobs in the provinces have adopted the weary, abused look of all those sad districts governed by the chichi Capitol in The Hunger Games.

That said, don’t expect UKIP to form the next government. In Britain’s first-past-the-post electoral system the recipient of the most votes wins the constituency, which means having to gain margins of around 40 percent to win any seat—a tall order for a party used to getting just 3 percent. There are only about six seats that UKIP are fairly confident of exploiting the divisions between the main parties to win. And even if they found themselves enjoying a significant representation in a hung parliament after next year’s elections, establishment leaders would rather ally with the devil than invite Farage’s party into a coalition government.

Therein lies UKIP’s problem: it has a ceiling to its support that is defined by popular perceptions of its respectability. Polls show that the number of voters who admire the party is dwarfed by those who strongly dislike it. In some parts of the country, it is toxic. When Nigel Farage visited Scotland during its recent independence campaign, he was booed, threatened, and forced to hide out in a pub—which may have been a blessing in disguise. Paradoxically, while the rise of UKIP has illustrated the failure of mainstream politics, its limited success has demonstrated the establishment’s stubborn resilience. UKIP, like Buchanan-style populism, has probably gone as far as it can go. The establishment, in turn, has been squeezed as far as it will permit its own humiliation. All the money, the power, the influence, and, critically, the electoral system itself, still favor the status quo.

What UKIP can do is chip away at enough of the support of the Conservatives and Labour to force them to change their policies. It is generally thought that UKIP could cost David Cameron the next election by denying him majorities in dozens of seats. The smarter Tories acknowledge this and are urging a return to red-meat conservative policies. If the UKIP experience has a global message for the right, it is that while the base might often seem an electoral liability, elections are usually impossible to win without it. In an age when all politics are loathed equally by the voters, the ability to generate enthusiasm among a dwindling band of true believers suddenly counts for a great deal.

UKIP MEP James Carver ‘victim of Romany racial abuse’

James CarverJames Carver said he had been deeply offended by messages sent to him via Twitter

Related Stories

A UKIP MEP has said he was subjected to racist abuse on social media because of his Romany gypsy background.

James Carver, who represents the West Midlands, said he received “deeply offensive” tweets referring to him as a “pikey”.

The word is regarded as a derogatory term for members of the traveller community.

West Mercia Police confirmed it had received a complaint and was looking into Mr Carver’s allegations.

‘Stigma’

Mr Carver, 64, said he would “not tolerate such comments, least of all from so-called internet trolls”.

“The public must comprehend that the everyday use of this word only serves to further stigmatise these forgotten communities,” he said.

“It is as offensive as racist expletives that are used against other minorities.”

Police confirmed the complaint had been received at a station in Worcester last week.

From other news sites

On the one hand we have this sad and insecure little man wasting police time and making a great issue of being called a Pikey due to his background yet his leader Nigel Farage has allied Ukip with the racsit gutter sweepings of EU politics in return for increased bribes from the EU.

Jim Carver is unashamedly of Romany origins, just as Nigel Farage’s ancestry is German yet both seem only too happy to support and collude with overt racists in their EU EFDD Political Group some of whom can only be described as extremists.

On the one hand we have the the racist incitement of the utterly irresponsible Ukip MEP Gerard Batten who due to his chosen superstitions, no doubt exacerbated by his Filipino wife who would have been brought up under the influence of cardinal Sin, who issues anti Islamic propaganda, whilst Nigel Farage the leader of Ukip makes political capital out of exploiting anti immigrant sentiments lately jumping on the bandwagon of ‘Je suis Charlie’.

We have on the one hand the insecure Jim Carver bleating about being called a Pikey, surely he is man enough to brush this aside and set out to show how valuable Pikey’s are in our society, just as Nigel Farage supported his protege a Ukip PPC Kerry Smith (CLICK HERE) for his rant about Chinkys!

It is clear that due to poor leadership Ukip, even at its most senior has a lack of control, a lack of vision and only when self interest comes to play does it show its true hand.

It is unarguable that, as Gerard Batten, Kerry Smith, Jim Carver, Nigel Farage and many others are either overtly racist or at very best all too willing to exploit racism and work with racist extremists – little wonder they have followed in the footsteps of Oswald Moseley and Adolf Hitler who also saw a rise in membership when they singled out minority groups as a target.

Clearly there is a pool, in the gutters of political thought, of some 5 – 15% who are largely the losers in a civilised society, who are all too willing to support racism and such parties who espouse it be it e’r so thinly disguised as anti immigrant or opposed to one Bronze Age superstition or another!

 

You will note Ukip’s own web site:

Free Speech and Democracy 

issues_democracy.png

• No to Political Correctness – it stifles free speech.

• The law of the land must apply to us all. We oppose any other system of law.

• Teach children positive messages and pride in their country. We want to unite through better integration.

UKIP is a patriotic party that believes in putting Britain first. Only UKIP will return self-government to the British people.

see CLICK HERE

Clearly Ukip is not just convincingly confussed but very clearly deeply flawed and unfit to represent others, particularly the majority who espouse self determination, reduction in PC, National sovereignty, National borders and a tollerant multi ethnic society melding to form one culture that is ‘British’.

 

Perhaps those who wish to run, crying at every slight, to waste police time, and are clearl;y unwilling or unable to provide leadership and a clear EU eXit strategy that is ethical, practicable and responsible, even after 22 years, should not seek to represent others, whatever financial rewards they personally accrue, and should stick to selling telephones, commodities and umbrellas for which they are clearly better trained and better suited.
