Nigel FARAGE of UKIP Faces LEGAL ACTION as A LIAR!
I totally repudiate Marta Andreasen’s behaviour, which I have predicted since her first materialisation having invented herself as as ‘Chef Accountant & Whistleblower’ neither of which role did she ever hold, but I do apologise for having repeated what seems to have been the lies told by Nigel Farage!
22 May 2011
I note with dismay your personal attack on me during your politics show interview with Jon Sopel last Sunday 22 May.
You will be aware and should have noted that during the course of my media appearances and the blog /press releases that I have sent out to highlight my lack of
confidence in your leadership post the recent local elections, not once did I
resort to personal invective.
I have been
at pains to stick to a rational point which I restate here: winning
only 0.7% of the seats contested is a dismal result. Or to put it another way
as the interviewer put it to you and you conceded: Seven council seats won out
of a possible nine thousand is indeed “small beer”.
Accusations of ‘being hopelessly out of touch’ such as that you made to Mr Sopel during your interview are part of the rough and tumble of politics and subjective. I
can take these accusations on the chin in this context. I should state though that, to my mind, I am not one who is “out of touch” by trumpeting failure as victory.
What I cannot and will not tolerate however is your assertion that “she hasn’t been to
the UK for several months”.
This is a blatant lie.
I have been to the UK on numerous occasions in the past months. While you choose to in your own unique style of campaigning, I am hard at work acting on behalf of my
constituents as well as keeping them informed of my activities at local and European level through my monthly newsletter.
In your interview you have slandered me in a very personal way that was not only
uncalled for (however not entirely unsurprising given your abject failure to answer the substantive points that Mr Sopel put to you) but was also patently untrue.
The potential audience for the politics show is in the Millions. As such I cannot and will not allow your comments to stand on the public record.
I am writing to demand a full retraction from you of your comments about me not being in the UK.
If this retraction is not immediately forthcoming you will leave me with no option other than to seek alternative avenues of redress. As you were speaking in your capacity of current Leader of UKIP, your comments also carry implications for the party if a retraction is not forthcoming.
I look forward to your reply and retraction.
