Specsavers‘, A Major Firm Drops Sponsorship of a meeting in the Isle of Man Due To Nigel Farage’s involvement.

Hi,
it is notable that Ehe Isle of Man Sporting & Dining Club, who are sponsored by Specsavers have had politicians as speakers previously with no mention of difficulty.
Perhaps it was in fact due to the dishonesty of the speaker who had set up an IoM account to reduce tax liabilities yet claimed, as an ex banker he was unaware that the IoM was a tax haven, which for a man who deposited £1/4Million in one payment alone is stunningly implausible!
As I recall Nigel Farage’s first notable visit to the Isle of Man was with Ashley Mote, who he had brought into Ukip displacing his long term allie David Lott as his number two candidate in his EU region for the election of MEPs – in order to enhance his electoral process and provide some gravitas to his campaign.
David Lott was cast aside after years of dedication and loyalty to Farage. Thus Ashley Mote was selected by Farage and placed in position becoming an MEP.
You will note, if you follow Ukip that Farage has enshrined his absolute right to place chums and people of ‘USE’ to him in favourable positions at the expense of democraticly selected candidates. Historically one of Nigel Farage’s greatest allies and operator of this dishonest behaviour was Douglas Denny who has recently found himself the victim of his own methods see CLICK HERE
Sadly it is unlikely that Douglas Denny will have the moral fiber and integrity to tell his tale of just how extensive the corruption in Ukip leadership was, be that in the rigging of elections or in the vanishing of large sums of Ukip members’, supporters & tax payers’ money. It seems all too likely this odious and dishonest little man it too frightened of being embroiled in the criminal proceedings he could instigate with his knowledge and personal involvement – including exposure of the lies and obfusscation surrounding the Ashford scam.
A service that could be given to Justice and the body politic were there honourable men amongst such as Douglas Denny, Mike Nattrass, John Wittaker, John Moran, David Lott, Gerard Batten, Derek Clark, Christopher Gill, Godfrey Bloom, Bruce Lawson and their like but sadly I believe none will have the sense of duty to our Country nor the integrity or honour to step forward and tell the truth.
Do however remember the actions of one honourable man who set the example CLICK HERE

Should have gone to Specsavers? Sponsor drops Farage talk

Nigel Farage

Nigel Farage

Specsavers has asked for its sponsorship branding to be pulled for tonight’s sell-out talk by UKIP leader Nigel Farage.

The event at the Gaiety Theatre in Douglas has been organised by the Isle of Man Sporting and Dining Club.

Specsavers has sponsored the Sporting and Dining Club since 2013.

A spokesman for the company stressed the Specsavers store in Douglas has not pulled its sponsorship of the Sporting and Dining Club but it had requested to the organiser that its logo and name is not included in the publicity for this particular event.

He explained: ‘The reason for this is that Specsavers has no political affiliation and therefore does not feel it appropriate to be associated by name with a lecture given by a political party leader, especially with a General Election on the horizon.’

UKIP leader Nigel Farage is the latest high-profile guest to speak to the Sporting and Dining Club.

Other politicians or former MPs invited to appear have included Respect Party founder George Galloway, former Tory Ministers Ann Widdecombe and Michael Portillo and former Tory peer Jeffrey Archer.

I wonder if he will be making a deposit in an offshore account this time around?

You have to wonder why they wanted to put their name to this event in the first place?

It is likely to have been due to the fact that by sponsoring the event, by extension, you are showing support for the beliefs he represents. I’d guess Specsavers head office might have made the call to drop the sponsorship.

Such a decision makes complete sense. The man is a vile, albeit laughable character who takes advantage of people’s ignorance/their willingness to believe the nonsense he comes out with.

Unsurprisingly, the thumbs down commence. I say unsurprisingly as most contributors on here appear to be the sort who love to be spoon fed the warm diarrhoea he spouts and regurgitate in poorly constructed posts as if it was their idea all along.

Here’s why sponsoring an event involving Nigal Farage, UKIP leader, would be considered inappropriate by Specsavers.

Specsavers undoubtedly as an employer, have to adhere employment law (I am unsure if they are Investor In People accredited)
I suppose all you PC haters hate the fact that under employment law, you can’t discriminate against people on the basis of sex, age, religion, sexuality, race etc. Whereas Farage and and his party are the complete opposite.

By spreading lies about how Brussel’s is taking over control and immigrants are taking our jobs, he’s got himself into a lucratively paid MEP role because people are foolish enough to believe it. Don’t believe me? Why does Britain First, a violent splinter group of the BNP, have over 20 million followers on facebook?

Interestingly, Farage refuses to publish he’s expenses when he’s acting as an MEP…But that’s okay, he’s fighting for our freedom in Brussel’s against their hostile takeover. Oh wait a minute, just how many meetings has he attended and how many has he voted on out of all those he should have attended?…

UCL reported the other week that EU migrant arrivals between 2001 and 2011 contributed £20bn more in taxes than they received in benefits. Yet in face of actual evidence proving them wrong, xenophobes and racists won’t concede they are full of excrement. Farage will continue to tell you that Romanian’s are coming to take your job. Which is nonsense.

Other members of his party include individuals who have
1 – blamed flooding on gay marriage
2 – opposed foreign aid to ‘bongo bongo land’
3 – told Lenny Henry to emigrate to ‘a black country’
4 – don’t forget their calypso song…

Yeah, so hardly surprising that a corporation like Specsavers do not want to be associated with scum like Mr Farage

Some excellent points there.

Strange, it’s been on sale for months and they only want to withdraw their name from it now!

There was no problem sponsoring other politicians who have spoken at their events.

I can’t recall if they sponsored the George Galloway evening last November. He’s equally as troublesome/offensive, but maybe not as ‘high profile’…

Hi,
good to see the highly funded media playing catch-up as this was published on this blog long ago!

Nigel Farage faces barrage of outrage after Mirror exposes his offshore tax fund

Newsline
Evidence: Farage fronted by Daily Mirror reporter Nick Sommerlad in Aberdeen

Shamed UKIP leader Nigel Farage faced outrage yesterday after his offshore tax wheeze was exposed by the Mirror.

Mr Farage opened a trust fund in the Isle of Man in a plan to slash his tax bill, our investigation revealed.

The explosive revelations have robbed the rabble-rousing MEP of his “man of the people” image, MPs said – finally “bursting his bubble” after years of soaring popularity in the polls.

His offshore fund was exposed just hours after the party suffered a humiliating by-election wipeout in Scotland, piling fresh misery on the UKIP leader.

Labour MP John Spellar said: “I know Nigel Farage wants to appeal to disaffected Tories, but copying some of the Tories’ biggest donors by setting up offshore trusts to avoid tax is taking things too far.

“It’s typical of UKIP – they talk about how much they love this country but don’t want to pay taxes here – it’s just hypocritical.”

 Fellow MP John Mann added: “This is a man who says he’s more English than the rest of us, when in fact he has been taking money off the EU while setting up an off-shore trust.

“His bubble has well and truly burst. It’s absolute hypocrisy funded by the European taxpayer.”

On Twitter Labour MP Ian Austin asked whether news of an “off-shore, tax-avoiding trust dents city trader Phony Farage’s ‘man of the people’ pretence?”

Even David Cameron was dragged into the scandal – fending off questions over his Cabinet Minister’s tax affairs.

Asked whether anyone in the Government sitting around the Cabinet table held trust funds offshore, the Prime Minister’s spokesman said: “There are rules about interests and they should be followed.”

He added: “Mr Farage’s tax affairs are a matter for him.”

Mr Farage told the Mirror he did not benefit from the Farage Family Educational Trust 1654.

Companies House documents indicated that the fund was a shareholder in Farage Ltd – a financial firm owned by his brother Andrew in which the UKIP leader also once had a stake – until 2011.

The MEP insists he never received any dividends from the firm, which had been paid solely to his brother, and had transferred his shareholding in the company to the trust fund.

John Alevroyiannis Andrew Robert Guy Farage
Brother: Andrew Farage

Farage Limited’s accountant Spencer Watson told the Mirror that all £969,000 in dividends were paid to Andrew.

Mr Farage said: “My financial advisers recommended I did it, to have a trust really for inheritance purposes and I took the advice and I set it up.

“It was a mistake. I was a completely unsuitable person for it. I am not blaming them it was my fault.

“It’s a vehicle that you chuck things in through your life that you don’t need and you build up a trust fund for your children or grandchildren.

“It was called an educational trust and could have been used for grandchildren’s schools fees, things like that.

“It was a mistake for three reasons. Firstly, I’m not rich enough to need one and I am never going to be.

“Secondly, frankly, the world has changed. Things that we thought were absolutely fair practice 10 years, 20 years ago, 30 years ago aren’t any more.

“Thirdly, it was a mistake because it cost me money. I sent a cheque off to set it up.”

Mr Farage last night claimed he “felt uncomfortable” about the fund but insisted he did not avoid tax.

He told the BBC he wanted to cut his family’s inheritance tax bills but realised he had made an “error”.

And he admitted such funds were no longer appropriate for politicians.

He added: “I don’t think you can be in public life and have a family trust.

“The public do expect very, very high standards. I should not have bought the policy. It was an error.”
