Dear Gerard,

Would you consider reimbursing our expenses in coming down to London to assist you during the Mayoral campaign?

Our train fair came to £80.

Yours sincerely,
John & Alison West

Dear John and Alison,

I thought that you had come to London on a voluntary basis in order to support UKIP in the London elections. For which I, and UKIP London Region, were most grateful. I do not recall you asking before you volunteered to come for reimbursement of your expenses. It seems strange that you should now wait eight months to request this.

The accounts for the campaign were officially closed long ago so my Agent, Mick McGough, could not pay you from the election fund.

Are you asking me to pay you personally?

I will consider doing so if you likewise will consider reimbursing me for my expenses incurred in coming to speak at the two conferences you organis
ed on Immigration and Crime policy in Woodbridge. I would have to look up what I paid in diesel, the hotel bill, meal and other expenses, but I could do so on a reciprocal basis if you wish. My guess is that it would be somewhere between £200 to £300.

Yours sincerely,

Gerard

Dear John and Alison,

Gerard has passed me copies of this correspondence as I was his Electoral Agent for his London Mayoral Campaign and am the elected Treasurer and member of the London Regional Committee.

I am sure that having both been candidates in the past you understand electoral law and that there are time limits for payment of expenses.Notwithstanding the lateness of this claim ,I as agent at no time made any agreement to reimburse you.

I am sorry to disappoint you ,especially at this time of year,but were I to make payment I would break the law.Similarly Gerard cannot use his MEP allowances either as this too is illegal.

Kindest regards

Yours sincerely

Michael McGough

Dear Mr McGough,

I would be grateful if you did not email me again. I have no wish to correspond with a man who lied in his MEP election address and has lied about me on the Democracy Forum. You have also lied on the same forum about Martin Harvey, Peter Cole and Len Baynes. I understand Martin has requested an apology from you over this.

If you had any integrity you would resign from UKIP.

Dear John,

Thank you so much for your reply and good wishes.
As a past and prospective future candidate it beggars belief that you should have made a request totally contrary to electoral law and without any prior agreement.

I hope this was just an oversight on your and your wife’s part .

Yours sincerely

Dear Gerard,

Sorry for the delay in getting back to you. I have been in Bath and have also been very busy lately. Thank you for your response. It is nice to know that our efforts are appreciated by you especially as we are £80 out of pocket. However, I would appreciate that in future you do not pass on my correspondence to M. McGough. I have no wish to receive his childish emails.

This man has also lied about me, Martin Harvey, Peter Cole and others on the Democracy Forum. He also lied in his MEP election address about being the PPC for Harlow.
If he had any integrity he would resign from UKIP.

Yours,
John West

Dear John,

I always give credit and thanks where they are due. Your and Alison’s efforts were geniunely appreciated.

Mick was my election agent in the Mayoral election and is the London Region Treasurer therefore it was appropriate for me to refer it to him. I cannot agree with your personal comments about him.

Yours sincerely,

Gerard

Dear Gerard,

So you think that McGough did not lie about being the PPC for Harlow? I suggest that you phone Martin Harvey who is the chairman for the Harlow area. He will put you right on that one. Also, do you think misleading members about being a PPC is acceptable? I assume that you also agree with his attacks on Peter Cole, Martin Harvey and myself. These were made on the Democracy Forum and are without any basis in fact.

I must also assume that you approve of McGough sending me childish emails.

I must say that I am very surprised that you support such behaviour.

Dear John,

I don’t waste my time reading interent forums. I am too busy trying to get things done in the real world to commune with the malevolent spritits that haunt the internet.

I judge people by what that do and say to me. I have alwasy found Mick to be a decent and honest man.

Regards,

Gerard

Clearly we have different standards.

A man who lies in his election address can hardly be considered a ‘decent and honest man’.

I also note that despite my earlier request you have still decided to copy McGough into this email.

No doubt many others have also been copied into our private correspondence.

Gerard,

This is an example of McGough’s pathetic attempts to be a smart Alec.

John

I leave it entirely upto you to draw your conclusions.

Be minded that Gerard Batten is an MEP and is it any wonder he stands about as much chance of being returned at the election as has EUkip of raising their numbers- they have had since 2004 to make a name for themselves and they sure have!! It would have been so much better if they had been any use whatsoever as MEPs!

Batten has merely acted as a recruiting sargeant for The BNP and it is likely they will take his seat – what an indictment on his brief political career!

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:

Write Upon Your Ballot Paper:

LEAVE THE EU
