Hi,
Godfrey Bloom Quits Nigel Farage’s Ukip & can now expect Farage to classify him as ‘Dregs & Rejects’ alongside the founder of Ukip Alan Sked, past leaders such as Roger Knapman and the majority of MEPs + around 70 NEC members who have dared to criticise his one man band and self serving, self enriching Ukip scam!
Douglas Carswell would do well to heed the warning Godfrey Bloom gave him that was most appositely endorsed by Dr. Richard North on Panorama CLICK HERE
It would be unwise to forget that Nigel Farage has personally controlled the party for his own gain and in the last parliament started out with 13 MEPs elected, but had alienated so many that two quit to stand as Tory candidates, where David Bannerman, Farage’s ex Tory buddy Ukip Chairman and deputy leader of Ukip (personally brought into the party by Nigel Farage and put in position), as with Roger Knapman who he recruited and placed as leader and even lord Pearson his puppet who held the leadership for a short time for him has become near invisible.
Then of course there was Marta Andreasen who had been dumped as an accountant by the EU unable to complete her brief to improve the systems to reduce the amount of fraud and make the EU more accountable CLICK HERE she was recruited by Nigel farage with much fanfare and he made her Ukip Treasurer. She quit in disgust siting bullying and dishonesty of Farage!
Also let us not forget that Nigel Farage defended Tom Wise to the hilt and NEVER removed him from Ukip going so far as to accept stolen money from him, which he knew was fraudulently obtained and which he never repaid, permitting Wise to remain a Ukip member for some years after he was exposed when Tom Wise eventually left it was in the February before the EU election when his Ukip membership ran out and he served out his full MEP term becoming eligible to the full pension as accrued!
One should also remember Ashley Mote who Nigel Farage ‘boosted’ into his own region as his number two candidate to raise his own status doing a total knife job on his long term associates David Lott and Steve Harris who were promised second and third position – but Ashley Mote’s presentation skills were used to ensure Farage’s return to the gravy train only to find Farage stabbed him in the back acting against him at the first possible opportunity.
Farage even turned on his own Father’s associates having ‘used’ them as with Buster Motram who he personally brought into Ukip against advice and likewise the wife of David Volker, Guy Farage’s Commanding Officer in the TA,who he placed as Chairman of his party yet engineered her removal when she was unwilling to go along with his fiddles – Petrina Holdsworth is currently Chairman of CIB!
The list of other highly competent people Nigel Farage has felt threatened by and has dishonestly removed is long and some understanding can be found by reading many of them’s resignation letters and further details at CLICK HERE
Be minded also of the vault face of Ukip’s first representative in The House of Commons the MP Bob Spink and just how short a time he was willing to tolerate Nigel Farage’s behaviour!
The only conclusion anyone of intelligence can make is either that Nigel Farage’s absolute control of Ukip hugely damages Ukip and that as a judge of people whom he personally selects is stunningly inept or they are unwilling to be corrupted to dance to his dishonest tune!
Nigel Farage single handedly reduced the party from 13 MEPs to a mere 5 remaining in the Parliamentary party – one wonders how few Nigel Farage will reduce the party MEPs to this time!

Godfrey Bloom quits Ukip and warns Douglas Carswell of ‘back-stabbers’

Godfrey Bloom, the colourful former Ukip MEP, has resigned from the party with a warning to its newest recruit, Douglas Carswell, to beware backstabbers among his colleagues.

The politician, whose gaffes have included calling women sluts and complaining of foreign aid going to “bongo-bongo land”, said he was leaving Ukip after party chairman Steve Crowther banned him from speaking at an event in Wearside.

Bloom initially had the Ukip whip withdrawn and subsequently resigned his official role last year, after Nigel Farage said his antics had overshadowed the party’s autumn conference.

He has now decided to leave the party entirely “with a heavy heart”, despite having had a role in founding Ukip and donating large amounts of money to campaigning over the years.

In a message to Carswell, who took up his role as Ukip’s first elected MP on Monday, Bloom told LBC Radio: “I would just say to Douglas: stick to your sort, you believe in libertarianism, you believe in classical liberal economics, don’t be pushed off. But I would say, Douglas, watch your back. If you bear in mind we started in 2009 in Europe with 13 MEPs, we ended up with five, so there are dead bodies of Ukip [politicians] all over the place with a knife quivering in their back, Douglas. Make sure it’s not yours.”

In a trenchant analysis of his former party, the ex-MEP said politics was not about the truth, and that he was “very sorry this disease has been picked up by Ukip”. “It seems to be drifting towards the politically correct mainstream like everyone else,” he said. “Instead of it being the libertarian party of common sense, I’ve been banned from speaking. I don’t know where the party has gone astray, but it has gone astray.”

Despite having formerly shared a flat with Farage in Brussels, Bloom said he had lost contact completely with his former party leader. He said Ukip was now being run by Crowther, who he described as a “svengali-like” figure and a “man of mystery”.

Bloom caused a controversy in summer last year after he criticised recipients of foreign aid in “bongo-bongo” land and proceeded to exacerbate the row by trying to justify the phrase in a series of broadcast interviews. He then became the centre of another row after hitting a journalist round the head with a Ukip brochure and joking that a room debating women in politics was “full of sluts”. He made these remarks after two of his colleagues admitted that they did not clean behind the fridge – a complaint previously made by Bloom – as they spoke at a fringe event at the party conference in London.

Bloom was then caught on camera ranting at Channel 4’s Michael Crick, who asked him why there were no black faces pictured on a Ukip conference brochure, before using the pamphlet to hit him over the head.

After Bloom resigned from the party, he gave an interview to the Guardian claiming Farage was “not interested in the running of the party, or in making policy” but was merely Ukip’s chief salesman.

In April, he argued Farage was not up to the role of “managing director or chairman of the board”, even though he was a “charismatic” and “articulate” advocate for the Ukip brand.

Farage, who described Bloom’s comments as “unhelpful”, has made repeated attempts to ensure Ukip candidates stop making off-colour and eccenrtic remarks by trying to “professionalise” the party. He has appointed a new raft of spokesman to his frontbench over the summer including more women and ethnic minority representatives.

The Farage-istas may well call it an ‘Establishment’ Attack when it Happens to Them but that overlooks the duty of that very ‘Establishment’ they seek to be a part of!

Hi,
I presume the Faragistas, The Farage Cult and his UKip claque will claim this is just another example of ‘The Establishment‘ picking on a long term UKip supporter and member of their inner sanctum – that may suit ‘Godders’ but strangely ‘The Establishment’ are seen, by responsible individuals, to have a duty to expose corruption, dishonesty, incompetence and deceit be it in business, in politics or merely amongst the various scrotes involved in and on the periphery of criminality.
GRAVY TRAIN 01
On that note one is bound to look forward to Panorama’s projected programme either with a view to seeing the criminality of Nigel Farage’s party exposed or as a means by which they can clear their befouled name and reputation and can be cleaned-up to represent people other than the racists, low lifes and destructive under belly of Britain who they so readily appeal to – destruction and criticism of those seeking to build the economy and society turning around the catastrophic economic illiteracy of 13 unlucky years of Labour and taking and enforcing hard decisions being so much easier to achieve than construction.
EU MEP Logo 03
As Godfrey Bloom has so ably shown giving advice is all too easy, but when your snout is buried in the trough giving trustworthy advice is a different matter.
Let us not forget that Godfrey Bloom spoke out from his position on the ‘Establishment’ Gravy Train and advocated that Central Bankers should be araigned for ‘War Crimes’ CLICK HERE One wonders just what he now believes Incompetent and dishonest Financial Advisers  be arraigned for – particularly as this is not the only financial offence with which he is closely associated!
You may also find this of interest CLICK HERE
You may also recall the fact that Godfrey Bloom obtained his position as an MEP by the corruption of due process and the duplicitous intervention of his chum (another failed Financial Operator with City connections, who not so long ago bought himself a Freemanship of The City!) Nigel Farage!
Let us also not forget just how involved in UKip leadership clique ‘Godders’ was, sharing (providing) a flat with Nigel Farage over a prolonged period, and even when drunk he was all too willing to pontificate on UKip’s behalf in the EU Parliament!
Judgement seems to be a failing not just of Bloom’s but all too common in UKip amongst The Farage Cult, who have lost numerous Court Cases showing a propensity for dishonesty, abuse of position and financial ‘irregularities’.
EU MEP Cartoon 03
There really is nothing clever about being a drunk or a fool, a clown or a performer, and happy chappy at the pub is no image to cultivate for a politician unless one is desperate to scrape the barrel for the votes of the dregs of society to stay on the Gravy Train!

Former Ukip bad boy Godfrey Bloom ‘horrified’ as his firm is fined for gambling couple’s £2m

 
 
 

An investment firm whose major shareholder is the controversial former Ukip MEP Godfrey Bloom has been ordered to pay a retired couple more than £2m in damages after losing a High Court case where it was condemned for giving “negligent advice” and gambling their money on mining and natural resource funds.

Andrew and Kirsty Mohun-Smith said they were horrified after discovering that York-based TBO Investments Ltd had ignored their request for cautious financial planning and instead placed almost all their money in unregulated high-risk schemes which were later suspended. TBO made no attempt to make any offer to the Mohun-Smiths after the couple complained, nor did the company agree to mediation. TBO Director Scott Robinson, a former business partner of Mr Bloom’s, did not bother to attend the court hearing in June and sent a sick note which Judge Richard Seymour QC dismissed.

TBO must now pay £2.24m and were ordered by the judge pay an interim payment of £30,000 by 14 July, but the Mohun-Smiths are yet to receive a penny. A subsequent appeal by Mr Robinson was also thrown out and TBO was ordered to pay an extra £10,000 in court costs.

Mr Mohun-Smith, 57, said: “I relied upon [TBO] to put in place investments for us that would provide a reliable and comfortable standard of living for the rest of our lives. However, to my complete horror it has become clear that nearly all our money was placed in unregulated collective investment schemes which have been suspended with an almost complete loss of capital.

 

“This company and its advisor Scott Robinson must be stopped from giving financial advice to members of the public. They provide negligent and misleading advice. They do not seem to realise that they are playing not only with people’s money but their lives and it cannot continue.”

Since the High Court ruling, TBO has ignored all communication from the Mohun-Smith’s solicitor Jonathan Mortimer, from Raworths in Harrogate, including requests to provide details of TBO’s insurance policy. Mr Mortimer has now written to all three TBO directors – Mr Robinson, David McLaughlin, a former Ukip employee in Mr Bloom’s office, and Christopher Tresidder – as he pursues them individually for the £2m compensation advising them to take independent legal advice in respect of personal liability.

 Latest company accounts show that Mr Bloom owns 53.5 per cent of TBO Investments. He was director of TBO between 1992 and 2004, the year he became an MEP, although he remained a consultant until 2007. TBO was also fined £28,000 in 2008 over an “’unacceptable risk of unsuitable investment advice being provided” for six years from 2001-07. There is no implication that Mr Bloom was involved in any of TBO’s advice to its clients.

Ukip withdrew the party whip from Mr Bloom in September 2013 after he struck a journalist in the street and referred to woman as “sluts” at his party conference. He sat as an independent MEP until the end of his term in office in May this year. In 2009 it emerged that Mr Bloom, then Ukip MEP for Yorkshire and North Lincolnshire, used his parliamentary staff allowance to pay three assistants, including Mr McLaughlin, who were also employed by TBO.

In a separate case TBO was hit by the Financial Ombudsman Service last month when the watchdog ordered the firm and Mount Sterling Wealth (MSW), another financial company run by Mr Robinson and Mr McLaughlin from the same address as TBO, to pay a pensioner £20,000 after she received “negligent” advice.

The woman, who only wants to be known as Mrs Q, was left “devastated” after discovering Mr Robinson invested 60 per cent of her £50,000 life savings in high-risk mining and natural resource funds between 2007 and 2011. Mrs Q was 64 and drawing her state pension when she first invested with TBO and living with her partner in a property with a “reasonably significant” mortgage. She was one of several TBO clients who received letters from Mr Robinson in 2011 inviting them to transfer into his new firm MSW. Mr Robinson subsequently increased Mrs Q’s exposure to high-risk funds to 80 per cent and she has fought for two years to get her retirement savings back. Ombudsman James Harris ordered both TBO and MSW to pay Mrs Q “fair compensation”, which has been estimated at £10,000 from each firm.

Mrs Q, who turns 71 on Monday, told The Independent: “I entrusted the majority of my life savings to TBO Investments and more recently Mount Sterling Wealth. I was devastated when I found out that I had lost so much of my original investment particularly as I had just retired. What has made the experience so much more frustrating has been their response to the claim – in particular, they have denied liability throughout, failed to keep to deadlines imposed not only by their own internal procedures but also by the Financial Adjudicator and even suggested that I was an experienced investor who should have known the risk that I was taking on.

“I have only been paid £5,000 by MSW after numerous letters from my solicitor threatening to wind up the companies and it looks as if I have no alternative put to take enforcement action to recover the majority of the money still due to me.”

Mr Mortimer, who is also representing Mrs Q, said: “I would understand if the directors put their hands up and admitted to a mistake but the way they have conducted themselves is absolutely disgraceful.”

Mr Bloom told The Independent  on Friday he was “stunned and horrified” to hear about the rulings against TBO and size of compensation owed to the Mohun-Smiths and Mrs Q.

He said: “I’m just back from holiday and don’t know anything about it. I’m majority shareholder but left the company in 2004. When I was there TBO never handled any money. I simply can’t understand how this has happened. When I was there at no time would we have allowed investments to be made in unregulated funds as we would simply not have passed regulatory inspection had we done so.”

Mr Bloom said he “bumped into” Mr Robinson and Mr McLaughlin every year but was unaware of any problems with the company.

He said: “I assumed my shares were worthless. I was told there was a management buy-out of TBO and I understood that it was being wound down. I never received any recompense and just assumed it would happen at some point. I suspect there is much more to this than meets the eye and I certainly hope some good comes of it for those concerned.”

Mr Robinson is believed to be on a two-week holiday and did not return calls. A spokesperson for TBO said: “All the matters relating to the Mohun-Smiths’ claim are in the hands of our solicitors. It would be inappropriate to comment any further pending the Court of Appeal reviewing the matter, save to say that Mount Sterling Wealth Limited has no connection to the Mohun-Smiths’ claim.

“As to Mrs Q, we have no wish, and do not think it would be appropriate, to discuss the specifics of cases or clients. However, whilst we are disappointed with the decision made by the Financial Ombudsman Service the outcome is fully acknowledged.”

Showing The Ineptitude Of Patrick O’Flynn, Nigel Farage & The Farage Cult that is UKIP!

.

~~~~~~~~~~#########~~~~~~~~~~
.
Hi,
having had my attention drawn to this pronouncement by the inept Patrick O’Flynn, who it would seem bought his position in the leading position as an MEP candidate for the Farage Cult by prostituting his position as a journalist for the Express ‘news wrapper’ where he was presumably salaried as a reporter of political new but abused his position by using his employers ‘paper’ as a vehicle for UKIP propaganda, which was seemingly rewarded with an MEPship by The Glorious Leader (TGL) Nigel Farage of the Farage Cult.

Realising O’Flynn’s pronouncement on the party web site was complete factual rubbish, following on the heels of the off the cuff dishonest bunkum by TGL regarding NGO funding by the EU when he claimed Greenpeace was directly funded by The EU of which neither Greenpeace’s nor The EU’s books show one Iota of proof.

I decided it was suitable for this blog which aims to expose corruption, stupidity and incompetence in UKIP in an effort to clean-up the scam and make it a party fit for purpose to lead Britain to Leave-The-EU, which clearly under Nigel Farage’s inept andf self serving leadership it is not!
Having decided to use the foolsih comments of O’Flynn as an example I spent the day enjoying the sunshine, which is my wont hence the reduction of factual articles on this blog (so may I suggest the Farage Cult pray for a continuance of this good weather!).
When I got around to doing something about the research for the article I find I was not alone in realising the standard of  accuracy of UKIP was as ever risible and numerous well informed individuals were well aware of the folly of ‘O’Flynn’s propaganda and as they had written the matter up I have opted, in indollence, to GUEST POST an article on the subject (to enjoy more sunshine).

 UKIP: the embarrassing stupidity of O’Flynn

 Saturday 12 July 2014

000a UKIP-011 veto.jpg
To view this UKIP official bunkum CLICK HERE
Following the example of TGL in falsely accusing Greenpeace of taking Brussels money, UKIP’s Patrick O’Flynn is now vying for the top slot in getting things completely wrong.

Falling for the meme that has been floating around on diverse websites, including this one, we see the myth perpetrated that: “On the 1st November 2014 the right of Parliament to legislate over us in 43 areas … will be removed and be made subject to … QMV”.

Included in a magical mystery list is Article 50 of the TEU – that which relates to the procedures for leaving the EU – the supposed removal of the veto translated as making the withdrawal of a member state conditional on QMV. Needless to say, there are no original sources cited for the assertions, but that doesn’t stop O’Flynn swallowing the myth, hook, line and sinker.

In fact, there is no loss of veto coming into force on 1 November. The change over from unanimous voting to QMV in about 40 areas has already taken place. It came with the entry into force of the Lisbon Treaty on 1 December 2009, so these changes have already been in place for nearly five years, without O’Flynn apparently noticing.

What does change on 1 November 2014 is that a there is a new system of QMV. A new “double majority” will apply when, according to Article 16 of the consolidated treaty, “a qualified majority shall be defined as at least 55% of the members of the Council, comprising at least fifteen of them and representing Member States comprising at least 65% of the population of the Union”.

Despite the sterling attempts of Denis Cooper, Autonomous Mind and this post by Boiling Frog, followed by this one to put the record straight, this has not stopped Patrick O’Flynn urging party members to support a new petition that calls for the Government to begin moves to leave the EU “before the wholesale loss of national vetoes occurs”.

Sadly, there is no stopping this rather stupid man, even if his members deserve better. It is bad enough having these silly memes thrashing around the internet, but senior members of UKIP should not be leading people astray.

The items to which Patrick O’Flynn would seem to be claiming I list below but draw your attention to the fact that the Lisbon New Constitution Treaty, which was unopposed in The UK by Nigel Farage’s cult and UKIP at large, passed into Treaty Law and those agreed areas of competence covered by The Nice Treaty come into effect as subject to QMV on 01-Nov-2014 through to March 2017.

During their daily check on this blog to see if they can concoct a legal excuse to silence me perhaps UKIP staff and MEPs might care to take note of certain facts regarding QMV (in this instance selected on a Finnish web site):
 The treaty reform process started in December 2000 in Nice, but the voting rules of the Council of the European Union are going to take full effect only in April 2017 – if the Treaty of Lisbon enters into force.

It is hardly the overpowering strength of the European Union we as EU citizens have to fear, but its impotence.

***

Current treaty

The member states have been accorded votes in the Council roughly in line with their population numbers. Article 205 of the Treaty establishing the European Community (TEC) is found in the latest consolidated version of the treaties, published in the Official Journal of the European Union (OJEU) 29.12.2006 C 321 E/136-137.

A few days later, on 1 January 2007, Bulgaria and Romania joined the European Union. But the amendment of Article 205 TEC by the 2003 Act of Accession, and the situation after the entry of Bulgaria and Romania is indicated only by a footnote and presented in an Appendix to the consolidated treaty (starting on page 325).

By inserting the changes, we present Article 205 TEC as it is in force since 1 January 2007:

Article 205 TEC

1. Save as otherwise provided in this Treaty, the Council shall act by a majority of its Members.

2. Where the Council is required to act by a qualified majority, the votes of its Members shall be weighted as follows:

Belgium 12‘
Bulgaria 10
Czech Republic 12
Denmark 7
Germany 29
Estonia 4
Greece 12
Spain 27
France 29
Ireland 7
Italy 29
Cyprus 4
Latvia 4
Lithuania 7
Luxembourg 4
Hungary 12
Malta 3
Netherlands 13
Austria 10
Poland 27
Portugal 12
Romania 14’.
Slovenia 4
Slovakia 7
Finland 7
Sweden 10
United Kingdom 29

Acts of the Council shall require for their adoption at least 255 votes in favour cast by a majority of the members where this Treaty requires them to be adopted on a proposal from the Commission.

In other cases, for their adoption acts of the Council shall require at least 255 votes in favour, cast by at least two thirds of the members.

3. Abstentions by Members present in person or represented shall not prevent the adoption by the Council of acts which require unanimity.

4. When a decision is to be adopted by the Council by a qualified majority, a member of the Council may request verification that the Member States constituting the qualified majority represent at least 62% of the total population of the Union. If that condition is shown not to have been met, the decision in question shall not be adopted.

***

Original Lisbon Treaty

The original Treaty of Lisbon was signed by the heads of state or government on 13 December 2007. It contains horizontal (general) amendments, i.e. terms used throughout the treaties, and amendments specific to each Article. The Lisbon Treaty was published in the OJEU 17.12.2007 C 306.

The specific amendments to Article 205 TEC, to become the Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union (TFEU) were (OJEU 17.12.2007 C 306/104-105):
:
191) Article 205 shall be amended as follows:

Comment

We have to wait until 1 November 2014 for the new rules on qualified majority voting to take effect. Even then they are subject to further delays under the Protocol on transitional provisions.

Consolidated Lisbon Treaty

After a few months and the publication of a number of “private” consolidations, the Council graciously published a readable (consolidated) version of the Lisbon Treaty, first on its web pages in April and then in the Official Journal, on Europe Day 2008. In part, the amended Article 205 TEC became Article 238 of the Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union (TFEU) (OJEU 9.5.2008 C 115/153-154):

Article 238 TFEU
(ex Article 205(1) and (2), TEC)

1. Where it is required to act by a simple majority, the Council shall act by a majority of its component members.

2. By way of derogation from Article 16(4) of the Treaty on European Union, as from 1 November 2014 and subject to the provisions laid down in the Protocol on transitional provisions, where the Council does not act on a proposal from the Commission or from the High Representative of the Union for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy, the qualified majority shall be defined as at least 72 % of the members of the Council, representing Member States comprising at least 65 % of the population of the Union.

3. As from 1 November 2014 and subject to the provisions laid down in the Protocol on transitional provisions, in cases where, under the Treaties, not all the members of the Council participate in voting, a qualified majority shall be defined as follows:

(a) A qualified majority shall be defined as at least 55 % of the members of the Council representing the participating Member States, comprising at least 65 % of the population of these States.

A blocking minority must include at least the minimum number of Council members representing more than 35 % of the population of the participating Member States, plus one member, failing which the qualified majority shall be deemed attained;

(b) By way of derogation from point (a), where the Council does not act on a proposal from the Commission or from the High Representative of the Union for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy, the qualified majority shall be defined as at least 72 % of the members of the Council representing the participating Member States, comprising at least 65 % of the population of these States.

4. Abstentions by Members present in person or represented shall not prevent the adoption by the
Council of acts which require unanimity.

***

Article 16(4) and (5) TEU

The basic provisions on voting in the Council are paragraphs 4 and 5 of Article 16 of the Treaty on European Union (TEU), presented here as a reminder (OJEU 9.5.2008 C 115/24):

Article 16(4) and (5) TEU

4. As from 1 November 2014, a qualified majority shall be defined as at least 55 % of the members of the Council, comprising at least fifteen of them and representing Member States comprising at least 65 % of the population of the Union.

A blocking minority must include at least four Council members, failing which the qualified majority shall be deemed attained.

The other arrangements governing the qualified majority are laid down in Article 238(2) of the Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union.

5. The transitional provisions relating to the definition of the qualified majority which shall be applicable until 31 October 2014 and those which shall be applicable from 1 November 2014 to 31 March 2017 are laid down in the Protocol on transitional provisions.

Protocol on transitional provisions

Protocol (No 36) on transitional provisions is an illustration of treaty reform, which requires unanimous agreement between the member states and ratification by every member state. Three different stages are distinguished.

1) From the entry into force of the Treaty of Lisbon until 31 October 2014 the current rules on voting remain in force.
2) In principle, the Lisbon Treaty rules on qualified majority voting (QMV) are in effect between 1 November 2014 and 31 March 2017, subject to a request by a member of the Council to apply the old rules.
3) From 1 April 2017 the intended rules of the Lisbon Treaty become operational.

Protocol (No 36) on transitional provisions (excerpt; OJEU 9.5.2008 C 115/322-323):

PROTOCOL (No 36)
ON TRANSITIONAL PROVISIONS

THE HIGH CONTRACTING PARTIES,

WHEREAS, in order to organise the transition from the institutional provisions of the Treaties applicable prior to the entry into force of the Treaty of Lisbon to the provisions contained in that Treaty, it is necessary to lay down transitional provisions,

HAVE AGREED UPON the following provisions, which shall be annexed to the Treaty on European Union, to the Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union and to the Treaty establishing the European Atomic Energy Community:

Article 1

In this Protocol, the words ‘the Treaties’ shall mean the Treaty on European Union, the Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union and the Treaty establishing the European Atomic Energy Community.

—–

TITLE II
PROVISIONS CONCERNING THE QUALIFIED MAJORITY

Article 3

1. In accordance with Article 16(4) of the Treaty on European Union, the provisions of that paragraph and of Article 238(2) of the Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union relating to the definition of the qualified majority in the European Council and the Council shall take effect on 1 November 2014.

2. Between 1 November 2014 and 31 March 2017, when an act is to be adopted by qualified majority, a member of the Council may request that it be adopted in accordance with the qualified majority as defined in paragraph 3. In that case, paragraphs 3 and 4 shall apply.

3. Until 31 October 2014, the following provisions shall remain in force, without prejudice to the second subparagraph of Article 235(1) of the Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union.

For acts of the European Council and of the Council requiring a qualified majority, members’ votes shall be weighted as follows:

Belgium 12
Bulgaria 10
Czech Republic 12
Denmark 7
Germany 29
Estonia 4
Ireland 7
Greece 12
Spain 27
France 29
Italy 29
Cyprus 4
Latvia 4
Lithuania 7
Luxembourg 4
Hungary 12
Malta 3
Netherlands 13
Austria 10
Poland 27
Portugal 12
Romania 14
Slovenia 4
Slovakia 7
Finland 7
Sweden 10
United Kingdom 29

Acts shall be adopted if there are at least 255 votes in favour representing a majority of the members where, under the Treaties, they must be adopted on a proposal from the Commission. In other cases decisions shall be adopted if there are at least 255 votes in favour representing at least two thirds of the members.

A member of the European Council or the Council may request that, where an act is adopted by the European Council or the Council by a qualified majority, a check is made to ensure that the Member States comprising the qualified majority represent at least 62 % of the total population of the Union. If that proves not to be the case, the act shall not be adopted.

4. Until 31 October 2014, the qualified majority shall, in cases where, under the Treaties, not all the members of the Council participate in voting, namely in the cases where reference is made to the qualified majority as defined in Article 238(3) of the Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union, be defined as the same proportion of the weighted votes and the same proportion of the number of the Council members and, if appropriate, the same percentage of the population of the Member States concerned as laid down in paragraph 3 of this Article.

On a different note I gather Nigel Farage’s old flatmate Godfrey Bloom, despite his denouncing Farage’s womanising most publicly and his having been overhead telling Herman Ke3lly an EFD goffer running flack and spin for TGL that effectively he should run along and stop making a fool of himself having threaterned Bloom with court action if he dared to repeat the fact that Nigel Farage had a sexual relationship with Annabelle Fuller and would likely bankrupt UKIP were he so stupid!
Despite Bloom’s rather belated various announcements of the truth to journalists and others regarding UKIP’s inner machinations and those of TGL in particular I gather Bloom was approached to wt nurse the incoming batch of thoroughly inept and inadequate UKIP MEPs none of whom would seem to be upto the job or carry with them the remotest gravitas, many of whom it has been shown bought their way to their own preferment and a number of whom clearly seek their own enrichment both of stature and income, a number being rejects and failures from the Tory Party.
I gather the new position as wet nurse was to be unsalaried! Whether Farage is still looking for someone to do his job for Free I do not know, but I do note he has sidestepped the bulk of his responsibility by appointing the Tory reject Roger Helmer as leader of UKIP in the EU – whilst he moves on to greater rewards and income as leader of the extremist and all too racist EFDD.

Profile: Laure Ferrari, the protegee of Nigel Farage

Laure Ferrari [debout-la-france.fr]

Laure Ferrari, EU election candidate for the far-right party Arise the Republic (Debout la République), entered politics after an unexpected encounter with Nigel Farage, the firebrand eurosceptic Britton. She is profiled in the third part of a series looking at the French election candidates, by EurActiv France.

Laure Ferrari decided to enter politics after an unexpected encounter with two famous Eurosceptic MEPs, Britain’s Godfrey Bloom (independent) and Nigel Farage (UKIP).

“At the time in 2007, I was working in a restaurant in Strasbourg. I met these two MEPs and we started talking about politics,” she told EurActiv France.

“The two Brits have no hierarchy and neither of them comes from a political background,” she explained.

There was a clear political affinity between the charismatic UKIP leader and the young woman, and what started as a by-chance meeting quickly turned into collaboration. Laure Ferrari started working with Nigel Farage in the European Parliament, where she was head of public relations for the British delegation to the Europe of Freedom and Democracy Group, EFD, which is co-chaired by Farage.

“Everyone says that I am Nigel Farage’s parliamentary assistant, but this is not true! I was head of public relations,” Ferrari claimed.

Stroke of luck

Laure Ferrari never thought she would have the chance to spend seven years in the European Parliament or run for the 2014 EU elections for the French far-right party, Arise the Republic. “Before 2005, I hadn’t a clue about politics,” she said. “For me, it was carried out by old men who sat around talking.”

Her total disinterest transformed during the 2005 French referendum on the Lisbon Treaty. “I said to myself: the EU is going behind the backs of European citizens here. I was always a bit of a rebel,” she said.

“What I find repelling about the European Union is that it imposes a vision that does not correspond to that of the European citizens!” she continued.

Laure Ferrari, from the northwestern French town of Épinal, studied English at the University of Strasbourg, and then spent two years doing a master’s degree in communications.

After her studies, she opened a cloths shop in Strasbourg called ‘Urban Flavor’. This surprising decision is explained by a longing to be independent. “I couldn’t see myself working for someone else. Therefore I set out on my own and got a bank loan to buy the business,” she said.

Ferrari ran the shop for two years. She soon realised that independence comes at a price. “I launched the business during the economic crisis and realised that working in this sector turned out to be…. quite lonely! “Financial difficulties pushed her to work as a waitress in order to “round off the end of the month.”

Ferrari has no family background that compelled her to join a Eurosceptic party. “I would say my dad was a gaullist and my mother… cannot be categorised, although she always considered herself a bit to the left”, said the young woman, whose family own a commercial road haulage company.

Close Franco-UK ties

Laure Ferrari discovered Arise the Republic whilst working at the European Parliament. “In 2011, I met Nicolas-Dupont Aignan, who I did not know at all! I was instantly won over by his personality and political programme,” said Ferrari.

Hereafter, she organised meetings between both Eurosceptic party leaders. “The ball started rolling. Now, they are like two peas in a pod!” she said. Since then, meetings and cooperation between the two political figures have grown.

“I have also tried to reach out to the German Eurosceptic party, Alternative für Deutschland(AfD). However, relations with them will not be possible until after the elections.”

Uneasy label: ‘extreme’

Despite her negative views of the EU, Laure Ferrari refuses to be classified as far-right or be compared to the National Front, France’s most popular far-right party. This frequent comparison makes her feel uneasy. “We must not forget that there are plenty of left-wing parties that classify themselves as eurosceptic,” she emphasised.

“When I was younger, I took part in protests against the National Front when Marie Le Pen made to it the second round of the French presidential elections in 2002,” she said. “Some of their ideas, like those regarding the death penalty and immigration, disgust me.”

However, their campaign ideas bear striking resemblance. “Even on Europe, the National Front bases many of their ideas on us, not the other way around,” claimed the want-to-be MEP.

Ferrari does not believe in abolishing the EU. Although Arise the Republic advocates an EU exit, the European Council is a positive component of the Union. Exiting the single currency and bringing back the French Franc also features in their political programme, but the Euro would remain as an “international currency”.

The Great Ukip Racism Debate – Debunking the Six Main Myths

Posted: 06/05/2014 15:43

Is Ukip racist? Or is it merely a party that is especially attractive to what David Cameron once called “fruitcakes, loonies and closet racists”?

Or, perhaps, is it neither? Has it been unfairly smeared and demonised? On Sunday, Ukip leader Nigel Farage told the BBC’s Andrew Marr he was “adamant that we’re a non-racist party”.

Guess what? Plenty of influential people on the liberal-left agree with him. Former Labour home secretary Jacqui Smith says she is “uneasy about the suggestions that they are racist and the implication that, therefore so are the likely Ukip voters”. Liberal Conspiracy blogger Sunny Hundal attacks those on the left “offering up blanket accusations of racism” aimed at Ukip. “Do the majority of Ukip voters endorse racism and is Ukip an openly racist movement?” asks academic Matthew Goodwin, author of a new book on the anti-Europe party. “No.”

In an attempt to shield Ukip from the charge of racism, these liberal-lefties have, wittingly or unwittingly, joined with both Farage and sections of the right-wing press to promulgate some pretty dodgy arguments, some pretty dangerous myths, that are worth tackling head on:

1) Only left-liberal, metropolitan-types in Hampstead think Ukip is racist

Not quite. A quarter of voters (27%), according to a recent YouGov poll, say Ukip is a party “with racist views” and “with many racist members”.

Only a quarter (26%) of voters give Ukip a clean bill of health and say Ukip is “not racist at all”. A pretty damning figure, I would argue. Meanwhile, a plurality of voters (35%) agreed Ukip wasn’t “racist”, in their view, but did “seem to attract some candidates or supporters with racist, extreme or odd views”.

Also, Michael Heseltine – who, last time I checked, was a Conservative peer and former Conservative cabinet minister – has said he believes Ukip is a racist party. Jeremy Hunt, a serving Conservative cabinet minister, has attacked Ukip for “attracting” racist candidates.

Oh, and the founder and former leader of Ukip, Dr Alan Sked, told the Sunday Times in September 2013 that, under Nigel Farage’s leadership, the party he created had become “anti-immigrant, anti-intellectual and racist”.

2) It’s unfair to blame Ukip as a whole for the racist comments of a tiny minority of candidates

First, is it really only a ‘tiny minority’? A few ‘rotten apples’? The last few weeks alone have revealed a bunch of Ukip candidates and activists who, among other things, told Lenny Henry to go and live in a ‘black country’; said the UK has a “pro Islamic” media; called Islam an “organised crime under religious camouflage”; “liked” the BNP on Facebook; described EDL members as “honest, normal people”; implied the case of murdered black teenager Stephen Lawrence had received disproportionate amounts of media coverage; suggested Nigerians were criminals; declared Mo Farah to be African and not British. As a Spectator blogger noted: “[T]he scandals are so frequent you have to conclude that it is not the rotten apple that needs throwing out but the whole stinking barrel.”

Second, it isn’t just a bunch of fringe figures in Ukip saying awful, bigoted stuff. Racism, xenophobia and anti-Muslim bigotry seems to be tolerated at the top, and not just the bottom, of the party. Why, after all, did Ukip’s leaders, and hundreds of members, “roar with laughter” and “clap” as comedian Paul Eastwood “took swipes at Indians, Muslims and Poles” at a gala dinner at the party’s spring conference in February?

In fact, consider the following four individuals and their remarks:

(a) Gerard Batten, Ukip’s chief whip and immigration spokesman, has demanded Britain’s Muslims sign up to a special code of conduct and called for a ban on the building of new mosques – which is a policy backed by both the BNP and the EDL.

(b) Godfrey Bloom, the party’s former economics spokesman, who served for almost a decade as a Ukip MEP and shared a flat with his friend and ally Farage, referred to the developing world as “bongo bongo land”.

(c) Lord Pearson, the senior Ukip peer and former party leader, has said the UK faces a “growing threat of Islamism” because “the Muslims are breeding ten times faster than us”. He added: “I don’t know at what point they reach such a number we are no longer able to resist the rest of their demands.”

(d) And, of course, then there is the party’s current leader, cheeky-chappy, beer-drinking, ‘regular guy’ Nigel Farage. Asked in a recent Guardian interview whether or not people should be “wary” of Romanian families moving into their street, the Ukip leader replied: “Well, of course, yeah.”

Change the word ‘Romanian’ to ‘Nigerian’ or ‘Indian’ or even ‘Jewish’ and ask yourself whether or not you’d consider Farage’s answer to be racist or not.

3) Romanian is a nationality not a race, so being rude about Romanians isn’t racist

Yes, it is actually. The Crown Prosecution Service (CPS), in its guidance on “racist and religious crime”, defines a “racial group” as “any group of people who are defined by reference to their race, colour, nationality (including citizenship) or ethnic or national origin”. [Emphasis added.]

As it happens, even Farage agrees with this definition – when the Ukip leader was heckled and attacked by Scottish protesters on a visit to Edinburgh in May 2013, he described his opponents as “deeply racist with a total hatred for the English”.

Hello, kettle? This is pot. You’re black.

4) You can’t call Ukip racist as they have black and ethnic minority (BME) candidates and activists

This is what I’d call the political party’s equivalent of the ‘My best friend is black/gay/Jewish’ defence. And it is an equally hollow and absurd method of trying to deflect or rebut charges of racism.

Consider: the BNP has had both Sikh and Jewish members. Does anyone sane seriously believe this inoculates Nick Griffin’s gang from the charge of racism or anti-Semitism? Really?

(On a side note, the father of the Ukip candidate who denied his son was racist – despite the latter’s tweets about “foreigners and weirdos” and rape by “Asian boys” – on the grounds that he came home “at 10.30pm with a curry ” can’t be topped in terms of originality – or bizarreness.)

5) Ukip has gone out of its way to reject overtures from the far-right in Europe

So far, maybe. In today’s Telegraph, however, Geert Wilders, leader of Holland’s far-right Party for Freedom, predicts that Ukip will join his party and France’s National Front (FN) in a new ‘European Freedom Alliance’ in the wake of the Euro elections later this month. FN’s Marine Le Pen has said she could happily work with UKIP, with “open arms”, and declared Farage’s ideas and views “very similar” to those of her (far-right) party.

Then there is the Europe of Freedom and Democracy (EFD) group in the European Parliament, in which Ukip sits and of which Farage is co-chair. The EFD group includes representatives from a variety of unsavoury, immigrant-bashing, far-right parties, including the Danish People’s Party, the True Finns Party and Italy’s Lega Nord. Farage’s fellow co-chair, Francesco Speroni of Lega Nord, has described far-right terrorist and mass murderer Anders Breivik as someone whose “ideas are in defence of western civilisation”. Lega Nord leader Umberto Bossi has referred to non-white immigrants as “bingo bingos” and suggested the police should open fire on boats bringing African asylum-seekers to Italy. Does Farage have a view on Bossi? Or Speroni? Or his alliance with both?

6) To call Ukip the ‘BNP in blazers’ is unfair and unwarranted

Really? Then why has Farage called on BNP voters to “come and vote for us” and boasted of his pride in having “taken a third of the BNP vote directly from them”. Since when did the attracting of voters from a far-right, racist party become a source of pride?

As academics Heinz Brandenburg and Anders Widfeldt, authors of a recent study on the overlap between the BNP and Ukip, have pointed out: “Nobody has a more positive view of the BNP than UKIP voters, and nobody has a more positive view of UKIP than BNP voters.” They conclude: “[T]he BNP and UKIP fit rather neatly into separate subgroups of the same, extreme right, party family – the BNP into a more radical one and UKIP into a more moderate grouping.”

Also: why did the BNP approach Ukip in 2008 and propose forming a pact between the two parties – a potential alliance which Farage, to his credit, rejected? What made Ukip so attractive to the BNP high command? And what made the BNP so attractive to the two members of Ukip’s national executive committee who were in favour of the pact?

For the facts CLICK HERE

Is there any other mainstream party in the UK that the BNP has asked to do a deal with? And which has BNP sympathisers on its national executive committee?

In conclusion, whether or not Ukip is a racist party, rather than, say, a party containing racists, is a debate for the pedants and the literalists – the bigger questions are: what is it about Ukip that attracts so many racists and bigots in the first place? How do senior party figures justify their racist, xenophobic and Islamophobic comments? Why does Ukip sit in the European Parliament with race-baiting, Muslim-baiting parties? Why are BNP voters – and, previously, the BNP leadership – so keen on Ukip? Why did the EDL endorse Ukip? Why does Le Pen want to welcome Farage with “open arms” into her far-right, pan-European alliance?

To turn a blind eye to such questions is not just irresponsible but dangerous.

The only way to clean-up the Augian Stable is throw UKIP’s books open to third party forensic accounting – IF as Farage claims there is nothing to hide then don’t hide it!

Hi,

whether it is the politically inept, the utterly naiive, the gullible supporter or the criminal it does seem likely this will be one time when they are in complete agreement as they seek to peddle the crass conspiracy theory that UKIP are being picked on because they are threatening the ‘establishment’.

It seems both the corrupt and the foolish have failed to realise, or at least accept, that as I predicted years ago, UKIP’s greatest danger was to come as Farage’s cult received more publicity it was bound to find it came under ever increasing scrutiny.

Indeed:

‘The higher up the tree the monkey climbs the more you see its Rse’!

Nigel Farage may well not yet realise it but from here on in he will find his finances are increasingly under scrutiny.

 

UKIP would be we ll advised to throw open its books NOW whilst it still has a bit of choice left, there will be no end now to the mistrust and no amount of lies and bluster will now put the problem to bed. That Nigel Farage like any sociopath will be happy to lie and bully he has proved his word is worthless – IF he incurred a £3,000 electricity bill it should be easy to produce the receipt but without it he is just another political liar!

 

You may well have noted how Farage tries to differentiate between expenses fiddled and allowances abused – since he gave no quarter over this self same differentiate in his pursuit and attacks on MPs he deserves no quarter now he seeks dishonestly to obfuscate the issue.

It does look as if Nigel Farage is bleating having been caught with his hand stuck in the cookie jar (I feel another monkey analogy coming on!)

Nigel Farage was baying for the blood of Maria Miller,  just a few days ago, after she had been cleared of criminality but asked to repay £4,800 – yet it does look all to like 10s of £1,000 are missing under Nigel Farage’s watch!

This will become a running sore from which Nigel Farage may find his hope for success bleed to death, whether he like his fellow MEPs follows them to prison for his dishonesty, a event which even with Farage’s undeniable support he was unable to keep his colleague Tom Wise out of prison.

There seems little doubt that in hubris and arrogance Nigel Farage has overseen a process of industrial abuse of tax payers’ money and the fact that by bending the rules great sums could be stolen behind a shelter of obfusscation may seem to mittigate the £Millions missing – the criminality of such unethical behaviour is beyond acceptability.

The amounts of money that have gone missing would indicate Farage will or at least should face criminal prosecution together with those who colluded with him, prosecution which should lead to a custodial sentence of notable and exemplary duration when you realise Tom Wise was sentenced to 2 years for stealing only £36K under Farage’s supportive oversight!

Open books to auditors,

former ally urges Farage

Nigel Farage’s former flatmate has urged him to open his books to inspectors after his failure to explain what happened to almost £60,000 in “missing” EU allowances.
Godfrey Bloom, who was one of the Ukip leader’s closest political allies and shared a flat with him in Brussels, said it was “perfectly fair” for Mr Farage to allow auditors to examine his Europeanparliamentary funds.

He said: “If I were Nigel I’ll tell you what I’d do — I would insist on an investigation by Olaf [the EU anti-fraud investigators] in order to clear my name and I think that would probably be the route he’ll go.”


Mr Bloom, 64, who was kicked out of Ukip after calling a group of women “sluts” last September, said that reports in The Times about the party’s use of European funding and party donations were damaging.


On Tuesday, this newspaper revealed that Mr Farage faces an investigation into almost £60,000 in “missing” EU allowances paid into his personal bank account since 2009, which he claimed to have spent on overheads for a rent-free office near Bognor Regis. Mr Farage said his electricity bills amounted to £3,000 a year but he has not accounted for the rest of the money.


A former Ukip official has made a formal complaint to Olaf, which is deciding whether to investigate.


Mr Bloom said: “I think perhaps this is always going to happen when you have such an absurd situation when there is no requirement for any serious audit with what is quite a significant amount of money.”


He said he ran a “different system” and was always open to “any independent audit from any forensic accountant who wants to come and investigate my books and income”.


Referring to a video that emerged last year in which he criticised Britain for sending aid to “Bongo Bongo Land”, Mr Bloom, an MEP for Yorkshire and the Humber, added: “I know my c**k’s always in the custard for saying Bongo Land or something but there’s never the slightest question of me behaving in a [financially improper] way and that’s something I value.”


Mr Bloom called for the EU to introduce a new requirement for MEPs to submit to a full independent audit at the end of their five-year term. “I think that’s perfectly reasonable and rational,” he said.


On Wednesday, Mr Farage failed to vote to reform Europe’s lucrative allowance system after previously stating that such payments were not “morally right”. The Ukip leader had signed into the Strasbourg parliament collecting a €304 (£250) daily subsistence payment.


A spokesman for Mr Farage said that he had “a close family member who was seriously ill and consequently travelled back home a bit earlier than originally planned”. He did not respond to questions asking which way Mr Farage would have voted.


Five other Ukip MEPs voted in favour of the resolution, which calls for “light touch arrangements to ensure that the general expenditure allowance is used for the purpose intended and cannot provide a supplementary private income for members”.


Every MEP currently receives a general allowance of €4,299 a month for running offices and other constituency work in their own countries. They do not need to provide any receipts to justify their spending, leaving the system open to abuse. Mr Farage said that he wanted to “end these allowances” after articles in The Times this week.


“Is it morally right that these institutions in Brussels use up such vast amounts of British taxpayers’ money? No of course it’s not, and that’s why I’m one of the few MEPs that would be the turkey that would vote for Christmas,” Mr Farage told the BBC.


Ukip has faced growing questions over its financial practices after six former officials came forward to allege that their attempts to inquire into the party’s finances were blocked.


Lord Tebbit, the former chairman of the Conservative party, said that Mr Farage must learn to expect greater scrutiny over his finances after joining the “big league” of British politics.

It Seems The Sunday Telegraph Has the Measure of The Importance of UKIP MEPs!

They seem disinterested in Godfrey BLOOM’s ‘Lunch Money’.

Nor are they interested in either Farage’s testicle or his prowess with prostitutes, nor even mention his drunken reveries not even comment on his bought and paid for publicly funded wife or much discussed ‘staff’ harem.!

As for the illustrious descendant of an ex PM The Telegraph saw through that and there was no obituary. 

Nor does anyone seem much interested in the Spanish liar and cheat Marta Andreasen or 
wee Dartmouth having paddies like a 3 year old twixt checking his wife’s investments in the FT

Seems UKIP is utterly irrelevant – But Thats Not News!!

Hi,

sadly The Sunday Telegraph article on MEP’s costs and expenses CLICK HERE  was not only very supeficial, it was light weight and a waste of space, telling us little and praise where it is due I note Nikki Sinclaire has – unlike EVERY other UKIP MEP – at least made an effort to produce open transparency and it does look as if there were single quarters and in fact the accounts shown here show clearly she has donated more of her money to leaving the EU and the wellbeing of UKIP (misguided in my opinion under its present leadership) that Nigel Farage has donated in ALL of the time he has been funded by UKIP.

In fact in the year shown by Sinclaire it does rather look as if she contributed more of her money to UKIP and the cause than the £30K Farage donated of UKIP’s money to buy off his wife!

Notably the Telegraph article did not even consider UKIP sufficiently relevant to include or mention them unless you take the comment of the very pro EU betrayal of Britain by The Tory MEP Charles Tannock who said:

“I’m very critical of those MEPs who just regard it as a gravy train and do little work. I totally deplore those MEPs who think it is all a waste of time and just grandstand and moan about it”.

to be about the foolish behaviour of Bloom, Farage and the other useless articles in UKIP.

Greg_L-W.

Legal action announced

Today at a press conference in Westminster, I announced with regret that I have been driven to take legal action against UKIP, Nigel Farage MEP and Godfrey Bloom MEP in the High Court and the Employment Tribunal.

The high court action is in relation to UKIP breaching it’s own Constitution and party rules. The ET claim relates to discrimination on grounds of sexual orientation. I feel that I have been unfairly treated by the leadership of UKIP because I stood up for my principles. It is especially disturbing and offensive as my colleague, Mike Nattrass MEP has received no sanction despite leaving the EFD group for the same reasons. .
It is interesting to note how life is what gets in the way of plans – I understand that the intent was to announce this immediately after Busak had agreed to investigate the abuse case against Godfrey Bloom MEP since there was well witnessed and corroborated evidence of that in The Parliament building. That would have made it a week earlier.

However I gather there was a delay of some sort with the Court papers pertaining to UKIP, Farage & Bloom so the lawyers suggested last Monday.

It seems pretty clear that the original delay was to ensure that the High Court action was not used as a tool in the leadership placement, since it was a virtual certainty Farage would be put in place – what a sad reflection on UKIP!

I AM reading between lines when I hazard the guess that being a dedicated devotee of the principles of UKIP members, if not the sleaze of UKIP leadership Sinclaire may well have had some feint hope of Tim Congdon being fairly elected and the possibility that he might have set out to strengthen UKIP by seeking out those of ability who have left due to the antics of Farage and his dishonourable parasites
Had that been the caseand the brains of the party and its activists considered rejoining to assist Congdon then clearly Sinclaire would have wished to help UKIP rather than take the step of taking them to Court as an effort to clean the party up by exposing the truth as to how vile they actually are.
This then left the Monday as the option – however as those who read her news letters will realise on Monday Tuesday and Wednesday last week Sinclaire was acquitting her duties as an RAF Officer MEP in Norfolk. So I presume that left Thursday to finalise the papers for a Press Conference on the Friday – thereby making sure she had NOT influenced the coronation and could not be seen as being vindictive by acting after the Coronation of Farage, I presume hence the relatively early morning event based on the possibility of a noon announcement.
Those of us who have observed Sinclaire’s career over many years will appreciate three things –
firstly she has been totally dedicated to the Patriotic causes of self determination, soveregnty, democracy, fair play and liberty; Secondly: she has consistently tried to carry out her job and more;
Thirdly: she has always been ‘organised’ in terms of scheduling and time management.

It is perhaps this drive that makes her, for some, a target as she does not suffer fools and like all who have no time for shirkers and fools they tend to make enemies – one only need see the vituperative comments of fools like Stuart Parr and cowards like the childishly named coward Baron von Lottsov or Septic or Farage’s gutter filth the liar and dishonourable low life Mark Croucher in his various cowardly roles exploiting UKIP for his personal gain. That her moral stand over the revolting EFD (many of whose corrupt and vile members are already joining the new Pan EU Political Party CLICK HERE) just watch the sad antics of UKIP’s resident Uriah Heep Douglas Deny mincing around looking for somewhere to stick a knife in or the human garbage McTrough.
That so very many truelly revolting people have gathered around the leadership is a measure of the man who whether elected or not has led the party over at least the last 12 years – weak, self serving, venal and incompetent, without a leadership skill to his name, with no vision, no aim, no gravitas, no loyalty and as we see from the announcement of appointments no interest in the wishes or well being of the members as he appoints a claque of salaried praise singers using tax payers money without so much as a by your leave or thought of the members and their corrupted NEC process.
No one would gainsay the fact that Farage is visibly the best ‘performer’ in the party but what of those denied the access to the stage to perform! Let us accept Farage is a good performer but think what the party could have achieved for these United Kingdoms without this simpering fool and his fear of any challenge to his self sppointed divine right to rob or at very least control the money!!

Ukip accused of discrimination by gay MEP

The UK Independence Party (Ukip) is to be taken to the High Court by the West Midlands MEP claiming it discriminated against her because she was gay.
Nikki Sinclaire is taking action over Ukip withdrawing the whip from her in the European Parliament and preventing her standing for the Commons as a candidate for the party.
She claimed that her treatment had been in breach of Ukip’s constitution and was motivated by sexual orientation discrimination.
A directions hearing is to be held by the High Court. The MEP is also taking the party to an employment tribunal, with a preliminary hearing on December 28.
Ms Sinclaire was kicked out of the party after she refused to sit with the eurosceptic group Europe of Freedom and Democracy (EFD) which Ukip joined in the European Parliament last year.
She said she quit the EFD because it contained “extreme elements”, including people with “openly homophobic opinions”.
“I think that homophobic in itself the fact that they expected me to sit next to such people and engage with such people in the Parliament, while taking a holier-than-thou attitude to parties like the BNP (British National Party) in the UK,” she said.
As well as withdrawing the whip from the MEP, Ukip’s national executive committee also ended her position as the party’s candidate for Meriden at the general election.
She said she still believed in the aims of Ukip, whose principal goal is to take the UK from the European Union, and would be prepared to be one of its MEPs again if it was “more tolerant”.
“It is unacceptable in the 21st century for people to be marginalised and treated in an offensive and derogatory way on the grounds of their sexuality,” the MEP said.

So now it seems Godfrey Bloom is under investigation by President Busak for his anti homosexual abuse.
UKIP, Nigel Farage & Godfrey Bloom are to be brought before The High Courts for anti Homosexual behaviour.
UKIP are to be brought before an employment tribunal.

Not a good day for UKIP on ANY count it would seem.

Are the events of today the start of the end of UKIP which has clearly lost sight of the reason it was elected (Well not quite as some of us remember it was elected as a protest against Westminster corruption and nothing to do with Farage’s self interest and aims of self enrichment!).

You may well find the information I have pulled together under the title of:
The Pan EU Alliance For Freedom

of some interest.
You can access the expanding section on Pan EU Political Groups and how they become Parties to aid the EU in destroying National Politics at:
You will have noticed that not only has Godfrey Bloom declared his membership but of course Sharon Ellul-BONICI who was openly declared on the payroll until recently has moved to ‘Chair’ the new organisation in its support of the aims of The EU – which very clearly she has stated she supports.
Presumably her husband Allain Ellul who is also on the payroll will be with her as soon as there is adequate money to start syphoning it off.
It is expected that if in the outside improbability UKIP members, now drinking in the last chance saloon, have the common sense to elect Tim Congdon as their new leader almost immediately and in direct disregard for the stated aims of the new leader and flagrant disregard for members (as ever) Nigel Farage will merely walk away with the current trash that represent UKIP as MEPs and join the new group.
It is unlikely any of the MEPs would have sufficient integrity to stand their ground and in fact they really are such unmittigated trash that UKIP may well be better off casting them adrift – there is not one of them of sufficient merit to be overly concerned at their loss and the departure of at least 11 of the remaining UKIP MEPs would most probably enhance the prosepects of UKIP – most clearly it would in terms of honesty, integrity, morality and representation of the best interests of those misguided enough to have voted for UKIP now finding themselves supporting little more than a claque of venal, self serving, weak, bufoons without moral fiber or principles of any value.
Just look at them:

Derek Clark

David Bannerman
Stuart Agnew
Nigel Farage
Godfrey Bloom
Gerard Batten
Trevor Colman
Paul Nuttall
Marta Andreasen
John Bufton
William Dartmouth
Can YOU, off the top of your head, name a single solitary thing that these self serving corrupt and duplicitous trash have EVER done that moved these United Kingdoms one step closer to leaving The EU?
I thought not.
Now consider just howmany £Millions they have cost the British Tax payers – the obscene salaries, perks, pensions and assorted scams they receive and just how little of ANY value they do for that money. Then look at the miniscule donations relative to their personal gain they each make!
Has UKIP become a part of the problem with no vision of a solution. I regret it does seem that way and having allied themselves with racists, xenophobes, anti Jewish, advocates of violence who are pro membership of The EU but aggressively anti homosexuals – UKIP have clearly earned their reputation as The BNP in blazers, one need only note the treatment of Nikki Sinclaire and the pond life like Mark Croucher, Douglas Denny, Mike McTrough and other in their ranks to realise just how vile a party UKIP has become.
