#866* – A UKIP Member LISTS £Ukip’s Betrayal!
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!
A UKIP Member LISTS £Ukip’s Betrayal! HOW MUCH WE UKIP SUPPORTERS WISH WE COULD HONESTLY SAY Richard LLOYD IS WRONG!

Whilst no one enjoys receiving bad news, sometimes it is necessary to look at things we do not like so that we can move forward.
This is such a message, below, and I sincerely trust that you will read what is written and then objectively consider what, if anything, must be done to enable Ukip to move forward, presenting an untarnished image of a Party incorruptible, and dedicated to exposing corruption where ever it hides.
I’ve entitled this post, “Yet Another Financial Scandal – Did Farage Help Himself?” because when all is said and done, it is only Mr Farage who can answer so many of the outstanding questions pertaining to party finances.
So to begin: In a recent round-robin email, sent earlier this month, a Richard English (presumably a member of Ukip)asked what had become of the missing funds in Nigel Farage’s SE Region. He also asked whether Farage had stolen the monies but, presumably, neither Farage nor any of his close advisors have answered this question – which does nothing to dampen pervasive rumours.
In this email, I must draw your attention to further irregularities. Irregularities that have the beginnings of a major scandal, and I regret, a scandal in which Mr Farage appears to be heavily involved.
Indeed, such is my concern over these latest financial irregularities, indicative of some very shady goings on behind the scenes, that I have temporarily suspended my support for Ukip. I shall not donate funds to the party for reasons that will become obvious. Nor will I campaign in the forthcoming elections until these serious matters have been resolved in a transparent and proper manner.
I am sending this email to you, the Ukip MEPs, in the hopes that you can shed further light on some or all of these issues. Equally, I am sending it to my own list of Ukip Members, any one of whom may perhaps be able to shed further and better particulars on the matter of the disappearing funds.
To set the background to the latest revelations, and to remind readers who may have ignored the long standing allegations of impropriety:
1. over £1m of supporters’ funds disappeared in the Ashford Call Centre from 2005 until its closure. 90% of monies disappeared into a black hole, encompassing ‘expenses’. Repeated attempts by members of Ukip’s NEC, including the much respected Dr David Abbott (who is also an eminent Christian), to have the Centre audited to discover what happened to the donations were blocked by Farage and his allies.
2. similarly, over £212k disappeared in Farage’s SE Region between 2004-5 and these were described as ‘other costs’ (see Electoral Commission website). What were these ‘other costs’? Why the failure to detail the expenditure and to disguise it instead? There were no staff employed by the Region, according to the Electoral Commission website. Again, attempts by Dr Abbott and others to carry out an audit were impeded and vetoed by Mr Farage and his nodding donkeys. I’ve belatedly come to see that this descriptor is all too apt for what now constitutes the NEC.
Why? Why are members who donated funds not to learn where and how their monies were spent? Why were demands for audits vetoed? Why were the books not presented in a transparent and correct manner, which would have obviated the need for any audit? What is being hidden and why? Why have these questions never been answered despite numerous demands?
How can it be right to censure the EU for its financial irregularities when the same exists in our own party? This is hypocrisy and it will not do.
Once again, following the lead of Richard English, I must ask this question in an open letter: Did you, Nigel Farage, remove any funds for your own private purposes? Did you help yourself to funds? If not, why did you turn down Dr Abbott’s demands for an audit?
In the light of the persistent rumours and allegations, it is now vital to carry out audits or make available all the books, receipts, invoices, bank statements and details relevant to the expenditure of a vast amount of members’ funds both at Ashford and for the SE Region.
If the above were not serious enough, I am now informed that there are grave questions over the EU monies provided to the Ind-Dem Group, of which Farage was the joint leader.
To explain: MEP’s may form an of an EU recognised political group, one that comes into existence if enough MEPs from sufficient countries can form such a group. This group then receives receive vast taxpayer funded allowances from the EU Parliament. The amount was approximately, €60,000 per MEP per year. Excluding Messrs Mote and Silk, this suggests some €600,000/year for the Ind Dem group, of which Mr Farage was leader from 2004-9
One Ukip MEP who served in the last term states in writing that these funds were paid into a collective pot and Mr Farage withdrew funds as he saw fit. Is this true? If so, what we must know is:
1 What annual checks and balances were there to ensure the funds were spent correctly?
2 Were annual accounts prepared for the Ind-Dem Group? If not, why not?
3 Were records kept of the expenditure? If not, why not?
4 Did Mr Farage help himself, benefit in any way, or assist his personal interests from these funds?
5 Did Mr Farage draw cheques or otherwise, without proper oversight as to how the funds were being spent?
These are all matters of the utmost importance from a viewpoint of propriety of conduct. Let us be clear: we are discussing taxpayers’ funds, ie money supplied by us.
These matters are of added importance when, as is widely commented upon elsewhere, there is an Olaf (EU anti-fraud organisation) investigation into Mr Farage and the IndDem group.
Finally, on the matter of funds, Mr Farage refused to publish his expenses as an MEP although MEPs from other parties have done so. He also failed to make available the total surplus of his genuine travel expenses to the party, which he promised to do in an interview in 1999. Clearly, he lied at the time and I can now only surmise that he did so in order to hoodwink his members.
We are discussing a substantial amount of travel expenses over 10 years. This procedure has now been banned by the EU because of the scandal that surrounded it and the blatant profiteering that occurred. Readers may recall that MEPs were provided with vast travel allowances which far exceeded the costs of their fares to Brussels. MEPs were therefore incentivised to travel via the cheapest means and pocket the difference. Did not Mr Farage promise to pay the difference to the party? Unlike Derek Clark, he has failed to maintain that promise but, instead, continues to look to us to fund the party – the Party from which he is the chief beneficiary in terms of his career, media prominence and salary. Where is his financial support for the Party to which he owes his career?
There are doubtless a few on this list who will not welcome this email. But you cannot have a prominent leader of a serious political party who is under suspicion and suspected to be fundamentally corrupt, a slave to his own personal ego and failings. Doubt this? Merely familiarise yourselves with the scandal of the selection process for the MEPs in last June’s elections.
The leader of a political party, and Mr Farage is its leader in the EU, should be like Caesar’s wife (as opposed to Annabelle Fuller) and above board. That is more so with Ukip because we are against corruption and set ourselves apart from the other parties by refusing to indulge in their shameful ways.
It is becoming ever more evident that Mr Farage – supported by his nodding donkeys on the NEC – cares more about ‘Farage’ and his poor judgement than about the membership. Witness the deal to stand the party down during the General Election if an agreement could be reached with the Conservative Party (which gives credence to claims that the party is merely an establishment steam vent). When were the members consulted? Were you?
Witness the £100k spent by Mr Farage, in his vain attempt to be elected to Bromley in 2006, where incidentally he polled merely 8%. How much of this money did he donate to the campaign?! And yet, three years later, he boasted in a conversation with Denis McShane that he had removed over £2m in expenses from the EU in his 10 years as an MEP – a conversation later leaked out in the Daily Politics Show. I expect you’ve heard the story.
So I must ask, why should ordinary members and pensioners continue to stump up for funds and wear their shoe leather campaigning for a party that is seemingly made in the image of one man?
Of course, some members will wish to pretend that these issues will go away and will prefer to ignore them because they are uncomfortable. To these people I say, the ostrich syndrome is neither practical nor helpful to this or any other party.
We have to face facts. We have lost more than half our membership since 2004. We have lost our best members. We have lost our most skilled, decent and presentable candidates. Why? The common denominator in most cases is undoubtedly, Mr Farage. A man who has turned out to be a dreadful leader of men.
So long as Mr Farage remains an official of the party or an MEP, the party will never progress to its rightful place. It will remain pockmarked with clones, yes men, little people of limited intellectual stature and capability. I have heard them collectively referred to as ‘Faragistas’
If, on the other hand, Mr Farage is to prove so many members and ex members wrong, will he will agree, finally, to an audit of each of the three areas above, or make available the books, invoices and application of expenses to an independent body.
Finally, I cannot help observing with sadness that we have a new Chief Executive Officer of the party who is, I understand, the ‘partner’ of the Eastern Region’s Regional Organiser, Peter Reeve. Exactly what are her qualifications, given – as I understand it – that her experience amounts to working in a pub and supermarket? Nothing wrong with that of course, but it hardly equips someone to be the CEO of a national political party! Is this yet another job for the ‘in people’? And after all is said, putting such an unqualified light weight into such an important position would enable Mr Farage to run things behind the scenes? Would it not?
Again this is an issue that Mr Farage must explain to all of us. Yet by his constant obscuration on all such questions, especially those pertaining to financial impropriety he allows the issues at hand to fester. A position that has pushed too many people out of the Party already.
No doubt I will now be accused of being disloyal, of rocking the boat in the lead up to a major election and making wild allegations. To anybody tempted to respond in this way let me say that I would dearly love to have my deep concerns over Mr Farage’s financial affairs laid to rest, but the only way that this can be done is for Mr Farage to answer, at long last,all the questions I have referred to above. Well either that, or his removal from any ‘office pertaining to Ukip. Only then will many ex members at last feel able to return to the fold.
I shall doubtless receive a large response rate to this email. And I will welcome it and forward to this list any emails of interest, while strictly retaining the identities of the senders, unless they specifically request otherwise.
having received the quite logical listing of some of the problems with £arage and £Ukip in the early hours of Thursday I let it pass, as I had, as you know, been away for a few days with friends and having steered our way through the planning stage for the srrest of Robert Green to ensure that the Lord Advocate of Scotland and others involved in the corrupt law eploitation process in Scotland walked into our trap.
We even had Robert Green stay in a Police safe house in Aberdeen ‘The Jays’ is run by an ex cop who it seems we were right in believing was now a ‘nark’, sussing visitors to Aberdeen and shopping them to the law, knowing Scotland no doubt on a back hander system via The Masons, most likely controlled by The Spec. The Scottish legal structure from plod to Parliament at Westminster is unarguably and unutterably corrupt, including their wee pretendy parliament set up to increase the back hander and bribe culture of Scotland – is it any wonder with the scum that has risen to the top in Scotland that a high percentage of their so called leadership welcome the corruption and troughs on the gravy train.
There are parasites in most communities as we all know whether it is the Welsh with their farce of an EU Regional Assembly, just like the South West, The East Midlands, London or any other EU Region that has been forced on the peoples of Britain.
This time we are playing hard ball with big stakes and it is becoming all too clear to the Scottish scum that we are winning and so they have now over played their hand and as you will see from a quick search of the name Hollie Greig on Google that we have managed to get the Google hits up to over 1,730,000 in a matter of a few days with the story on:
spreading around the world and details of her sexual abuse by members of the Police, a serving Sheriff and some 16 named individuals and 6 other children raped and sodomised from an early age by just this one Scottish paedophile gang.
Some who have known me rather better than the desparate attempts of the corrupt to conceal their names in £Ukip by spreading lies and false stories about me will know that my campaigning days go back to my childhood – I have NEVER beern prepared to turn a blind eye to corruption, whether abuse of homosexuals in the 1960s campaigning for decriminalisation of acceptable levels of perversion between consenting adults, through anti-racism, to a belief that Britain should have either opposed Viet-Nam or participated but that sending British troops in in Australian uniforms was reprehensible.
I took active part in other issues, opposed the concept of a Union in Europe, etc. Put myself under fire in SOWETO in 1976 in support of the overthrow of apartheid and much best unlisted 😉
There is NEVER a wrong time to do the right thing – and it is for that reason that I have been involved in all these issues and have NEVER walked away from what I honestly believe to be the honourable cause.
The situation of Dunblane was high on my profile as was Lokerbie and the persecution of Abdelbaset Ali al-Megrahi, where Lord Cullen who had dishonestly and corruptly orchestrated a cover-up at Dunblane now orchestrated a fix in Holland.
Now we have the situation of systemic, endemic abuse of the legal structure in Scotland and the latest sickenning abuse of children which like Dunblane, Kincorra, Magic Circle, North Wales, Tony Blair’s political agent, and Government ministers I have named in the past seems time and time again to tie into the Judiciary and Governance even to the ALLEGEDLY RITUAL rape and killing of babies at Bohemian Grove for the malign dalliance of the great and the good of The New World Order.
Be minded of my track record £Ukip – your sordid level of fix and corruption, hypocracy and self enrichment whilst achieving absolutely nothing of merit in terms of moving Britain one inch closer to leaving the EU – not one inch.
Look at the many who have left £Ukip from Craig McKinley, Hockney, Lott, Booth, Wittacker, Knapman, Titford and many more they just drop out of site once their days of deceit to gain enrichment from the troughs of the EU are over – for some it is age and senility but that seems not to stop them if they still stand a chance of keeping their snouts in as with Deadwood Derek who has done nothing but harm to the cause for years (look at the membership in his region!). Their silence on departure speaks volumes of their commitment to the cause beyond enrichment – they were pretty damned useless in office now they make no visible effort because there is no more money to make just a pension to enjoy for many!
Consider the fact that ONLY ONE of £arage‘s £Ukip on the gravy train has had the ethics and morality to speak out and refuse to assist the xenophobic, violent, bullying, pro EU membership, anti Jewish, racist EFD surely you must ask yourself how such people get to represent the Party let alone these United Kingdoms! Can you name a member of the staff who has said I will not work with £Ukip to strengthen the position of the EFD?
The tragedy is the UKIP brand that held such value is now so befouled and besmirched having been dragged into the gutter for personal gain by a venal few that even its residual value is more to do with notoriety than achievement.
Ask yourself — Do YOU know Richard Lloyd who wrote the letter this blog started out on? Have YOU even heard of him?
I doubt many have but read his letter again – this is a largely unknown betrayed supporter, how many 1,000 are there out there who could have written just such a list of betrayals by £arage and his claque of £Ukip cronies
TO LEAVE THE EU
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.
