Clean EUkip up NOW & make UKIP electable!

The corruption of some of EUkip’s leadership, their anti UKIP claque & the NEC is what gives the remaining 10% a bad name!



The discreditted Marta Andreasen has been video interviewed by Accountancy Age:

Accountancy Age
32-34 Broadwick Street
London W1A 2HG
Tel: 020 7316 9000
Fax: 0020 7316 9250

The interview is conducted by a staff member of the magazine who would seem to have done little research – his name is Mario Christadoulou and can be contacted on the number above – I have spoken with him and he did stress that he was primarily a print journalist and was not responsible for the editing of the material shown, which was extracted from a much longer interview 😉

The edited interview is approximately 12 minutes long and it is totally misleading on a number of counts.

You will be interested to note he had seemingly not read Marta Andreasen’s novel recently published and widely publicised by EUkip.

He had seemed not to have read The Court Judgement when her apeal against suspension was rejected and the entire claim went against her as it did not enter into his questions.

Marta Andreasen had been suspended for very clear failure to produce the report and recommendations she was employed to produce, to which there was no allusion.

There would seem to be no record of her so called ‘whistleblowing’ contemporary with her employ or in any framework of time that could be construed as the reason she was suspended by the EU.

You will note that Marta Andreasen back peddles on the matter of ‘whistleblowing’ as clearly it is a matter of public record that that was NOT the reason she left employ with the EU as shown by the Court Record.

The full transcript of the Judgement can be found and read in French if you CLICK HERE if you would rather read an English Translation CLICK HERE

You may have noted that Marta Andreasen made no effort to correct Mario Christadoulou when he implied she was The Chief Accountant of the EU and she is billed on their web site as:
‘Former EC chief accountant’ – in 2002 The EU had come into being some 8 years earlier!

Clearly Mr. Christadoulou is of the impression that he is interviewing someone of consequence, probity and stature as he makes no effort to indicate otherwise he seems unaware that Marta Andreasen is merely a bean counter – one of literally 100s working in the EU, if not 1,000s. The claimed title of Chief Accountant is totally missleading and thus dishonest and a classic example of ‘passing off’, which I understand may well be a criminal offence as the translation from the relatively mundane status of ‘chef’ in French is totally unrelated to the meaning of Chief in English.

Virtually every Office in the EU has a ‘Chef de Cabinet’ a title worn with great glee and no relevance for a time by the hapless David Lott – it is now perceived as so irrelevant that I understand no one in EUkip uses it and if they do they make little of it.

It is little!

To move on Mr. Cristadoulou surprisingly makes no comment on the fact that Marta Andreasen had previously been suspended without pay from a previous employer, the OECD, for either 15 or 18 months over ‘financial irregularities’ I understand and her appeal against suspension failed in the Courts a fact Mr. Christadoulou confirmed he knew and there were also allegations of racism I understand.

That Mr. Christadoulou knew of The OECD departure it seems he was not interested in this interview as to how Marta Andreasen obtained her job with the EU in the light of her employment track record.

All other considerations aside the EU could have taken the simple option of firing her on the grounds that she had failed to declare her dismissal by her former employers and the subsequent Court Judgement against her in her CV, as established some time ago in the HARD TALK interview for TV by Tim Sebastian.

It does seem a measure of the ineptitude of The EU that their HR Department seemingly failed adequately to check her references. About this failure there seems no record of any whistleblowing by Marta Andreasen!

There are no questions in the interview that would indicate Mr. Christadoulou had realised that Marta Andreasen was put in position as an MEP in a manner that was ‘Ultra Virese’ to the rules, customs and democratic undertakings of EUkip.

Mr. Christadoulou also fails to comment on the fact that Marta Andreasen was voted against, a democratic process which is rare in The EU, for a position of Vice Charman of a committee – a process within the rules and which may well have been on the grounds that the committee members, or at least sufficient of them, may have been well briefed!

One wonders if Mr. Christadoulou was aware that Marta Andreasen was GIVEN the title of Treasurer whilst much of the work was carried out pro bono by the previous treasurer (stand in) Martin Hasslam who also made financial contributions to her salary of £30,000 a year & £17,000 unaccountable expenses when she lived in Barcelona.

In a manner not disimilar to a cuckoo when it flies north, whilst visiting Britain Marta Andreasen seemingly laid the eggs of discontent and as the fledgeling grew eventually Martin Hasslam was removed from not just his job, which he had done freely as a donor, but from the party itself by a process of entrapment, after he advocated that the party accounts should be considerably more transparent.

It was clear at The Business Meeting of 2008 that despite the engorging income relative to all the previous treasurers who worked pro bono Marta Andreasen was no more master of the accounts than either Andrew Smith previously had been – unable to answer 28 simple questions of basic accounting such that he quit the NEC and the Treasurership leaving the accounts in disarray.

As Treasurer Marta Andreasen had claimed no knowledge of the call centre let alone its accounts, which is strange as ostensibly it should have been EUkip’s largest income sector or at least more than noticeable!

I do appreciate I may well have been somewhat harsh on Mario Christodoulou as the aim of his interview was to interview an MEP of an accountancy background on the subject of the new ‘Whistleblower’ Laws in Britain – perhaps just to pull his leg I should have asked him how he felt about the fact that this was probably just an EU diktat being imposed on and rubber stamped by Westminster or at very best by law it MUST be compliant with EU law in accord with the ECA!

In terms of interview that it was cut and edited by a third party also puts him at a disadvantage. Clearly this article is NOT about the interviewer but to show just how duplicitous Marta Andreasen can be and even an otherwise competent journalist can find they are promoting a flse premise – particularly when used as effectively propaganda on EUkip’s web site and now on Anthony Butcher’s Forum.

My conversation with Mario Christadoulou ended amicably with him thanking me for the courtesy of the call before publication and he declined to read the article and add a comment in response at the end and he said go ahead and publish it as it is only your subjective opinion and it doesn’t matter or at least that is how I understand it – he no doubt will have recorded the conversation as salaried journalists tend to.

He was very clear that he did not consider it to be a Panorama type interview but with respect of an MEP representing people. I stated that the only person I had noticed her representing consistently was herself.

I thanked him for the courtesy of the conversation having provided him with my full name, telephone number and blog address showing he could readily access my street address if he wished.

I would suggest anyone who wishes to blog use their own name be readily available to make corrections if unintentionally they make an error and have the courtesy to phone when commenting on a professional out of the public employ/domain. ie. comment on public servants is clearly acceptable as with those funded from the public purse or those enjoining in discussion in the similar paramaters.

Thank you again for your courtesy to Mario Christadoulou and if I have made ANY error of fact with which you are unhappy please do not hesitate to contact me as the aim of my blog is to be as accurate as possible/reasonable.

Yes it is a subjective opinion, which I hold, that Marta Andreasen is corrupt, dishonest, grasping, on a vendetta, exploitative and has no place as a British MEP least of all having cheated and acted dishonestly to gain the job.


What is the exit and survival plan for these United Kingdoms to maximise on the many benefits of leaving The EU. It is the DUTY of our Politicians and Snivil Cervants to ensure the continuity, liberty and right to self determination of our peoples they have a DUTY to protect against crime and secure both our food and our border.

NONE of these DUTIES has a single British politician upheld for 40 years. They have drawn their incomes fraudulently and dishonesty.

Politicians are failing to tell the truth, but so are almost all wanabe Politicians, the MSM and Snivil Cervants.

The fact is that even if EVERY British MEP wanted change in The EU it would achieve NOTHING.
Every single British Politician, of EVERY Party, elected since before we joined the EUropean Common Market, has promised to change The EU’s CAP – In 40 Years they have achieved absolutely NOTHING!

To try to put a value on OUR Freedom is as futile as floccipaucinihilipilification and as odious as the metissage of our societies, as we rummage in the ashes of our ancestors dreams, sacrifices and achievements, the flotsam of our hopes and the jetsam of our lives, consider the Country and Anglosphere which we thus leave our children and the future, with shame!

I SUGGEST – since there is clearly no political party of repute, advocating or campaigning for withdrawal of these United Kingdoms from the EU and restoration of our independent sovereign, democracy, with Justice & the right to self determination in a free country. Deny the self seeking & meaningless wanabe MEPs the Mythical Mandate for which they clamour. Diktat is imposed from The EU but Law should be made at Westminster, for our Country & our Peoples.
