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!

As The Sunday Times
anybody know if this picture is available without gurnning & with his teeth in?


one has to wonder whether Michael Natrrass will have the integrity to keep to the rules HE PERSONALLY mad in EUkip?

It was agreed at a meeting in Brussels of the MEPs when they were considering what to do about Tom Wise who had remained a EUkip member and as a result of having colluded in so many cover-ups of Tom Wise’s criminality there was a danger that he might well be sufficiently ‘covered-up’ to demand he be allowed to stand again, and as the MEPs had rigged the selection process so that sitting MEPs remained top in their Region as with deadweight Derek and liability Bloomers, Clever Trevor the bent Copper and what a surprise Farage – Problem!

Because it was a problem, as is so normal in EUkip Farage legged it finding a half way plausible excuse to make sure that there were none of his fingerprints and he left his muppets and puppets with instructions. It was decided that no member of EUkip could stand for office if they were under investigation by OLAF!

These were the grounds to ensure Tom Wise was prevented from standing!

OK Nattrass just how do YOU figure making the decision that no member of EUkip could stand for office if under investigation by OLAF or the Police and we all remember how righteous you all were when having rigged the selection process to put Ashley Mote in at number 2 in the South East EU Region he was unceremoniously chucked out of the party because he was under investigation by the police and then a pending Court case for an offence many years earlier!

One must assume that Mike Nattrass will prorogue himself from the present leadership contest now that he and the world know he is under investigation by OLAF – The decision made and voted on in Brussels was unequivocal – it didn’t say only if your name begins with W or only when the month has an R in it:
Its The Rules Stupid!


Good bye Mike!

UKIP MEP Michael Nattrass in expenses fraud inquiry
Daniel Foggo
An MEP for the United Kingdom Independence party is being investigated by the European Union’s anti-fraud watchdog over his use of expenses.
Michael Nattrass, who has represented the West Midlands in the European parliament since 2004, is the subject of an inquiry into whether Denis Brookes, one of his former aides, was paid through public funds while he was working as a regional organiser for UKIP. The EU does not allow taxpayers’ money to be used to pay party officials.
The inquiry into Nattrass, which is part of a wider investigation into UKIP’s finances, comes as one of its former MEPs, Tom Wise, was jailed last week for two years for embezzling funds out of his assistant’s allowance.
It has also emerged that Nattrass was using a company of which he was a shareholding partner as the “paying agent” for all his assistants’ salaries provided by the EU.

Between 2004 and summer this year, all of his assistants’ allowances were channelled through the company account of Nattrass Giles, a chartered surveyors in Birmingham which he founded nearly 30 years ago.
Nattrass was a signatory to the bank account, although he insisted last night that the administration was handled by another partner in the firm who has since died.
MEPs must not act as their own paying agents. The role can only be performed by “third parties”.
New rules brought in since July this year have further tightened the controls and MEPs can now only use accredited people or companies as paying agents.
Nattrass said he had been told by EU officials that he could use his Birmingham company.
He also insisted that Brookes had worked for him in his capacity as an MEP until his employment as an aide came to an end three years ago.

There is rather more behind this story than may be noted on first sight – although Denis Brookes unsurprisingly lost his employment tribunal that sets no precedent in this case I understand.

It is also clear, I understand, that Nattrass was in breech of the rules both in the letter thereof and the spirt – it is reasonable to assume that when Nattrass claims he was authorised to use Nattrass Giles; frequently listed, as is customary in EU filing systems, as Giles, Nattrass, presumably in the belief that the surname was Giles whilst the prename was Nattrass – hence it seems a clearance and no earlier realisation!

It is also entirely reasonable to believe that alternatively Mike Nattrass failed to inform the EU payments office that he owned the firm having founded it some 30 years earlier, nor that it was NOT a Limited Company nor that he was the signator on the account and majority share holder!

The case may well be based upon Denis Brookes’ employ, which is a muddled affair as he switched his own contract to being a service provider I understand and also expected to receive the full sum of his income without taxation at a very generous £30K when one considers his CV!

I understand that OLAF interviewed Denis Brookes on their recent visit to Britain and also whilst here they interviewed Derek Bennett who works in what was his family business the Fireplace business now run by Mike Nattrass’ son – I understand Derek is salaried and paid as a Regional Organiser having largely taken over Denis Brookes’ job.

Derek is best known for his publication ‘Eurorealist’ which he was running long before his brief period on EUkip NEC some years ago. I was fortunate enough to have been a recipient of the magazine for several years and even had the privilege of having numerous articles published in opposition to the EU until sadly it became a EUkip praise sheet and was thus party orientated.

I am unsure as to whether OLAF are taking an interest in Derek’s position yet nor whether Lynn Ashraff is yet a subject of investigation though it does seem likely as it would apear her employ has oscillated between Nattrass EUkip MEP and Nattrass Giles paying agent and Nattrass Giles estate agents etc. – Most confusing! I presume Nattrass would claim that he was unaware that there might be confusion and that was EXACTLY why The EU requires a distance between the MEP and the handling of the money by a properly independent recognised paying agent!

Please understand that I do not believe Nattrass was industrially defrauding the tax payers, as was Tom Wise, for his own direct gain but the fraudulent use of tax payers money does seem to have occurred in the case of the salary of his RO Denis Brookes albeit weasel words may well have been used as a fig leaf to hide the fact he was RO. I do not believe Nattrass has been trousering the money directly but it can hardly be seen as wise to employ an RO and for him to be an enthusiastic fireplace salesman nor the oscillating employ of Lynn Ashraff!

I believe it will be found that Derek Clark’s employment of staff is much more clearly shown to be ultra virese with effectively ghost employee it would seem and or staff not even working for him and of course he was shuffling directly employed staff between Ashford under its various guises and his own offices whilst still leaving them in other tax zones. Do be minded that this is the odious man who colluded with Gerard Batten to orchestrate a Soviet style Kangaroo Court to persecute Peter Baker corruptly aided by Douglas Denny.

Roger Knapman is under the rules likely to find he has a problem as he was quite clearly employing a Regional Organiser in Wales when John Bufton took over from the previous RO Jim Carver, the umbrella salesman, who Farage had been funding in full or in part.

Malcolm Wood as Regional Organiser in The South West Region was I understand funded by Graham Booth and it was a condition of handing the MEPship to Trevor Colman, seemingly having been rewarded thus for giving his title as a retired senior police officer to one of the many corrupt cover-ups of Tom Wise’s criminality by EUkip, I understand however he was obliged to employ Malcolm Wood despite the fact he knew he was untrustworthy and he did not like him (They seem to deserve eachother!!)


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.
