Clean EUkip up NOW  make UKIP electable!  
The corruption of some of EUkip’s leadership,   
their anti UKIP claque in POWER the NEC 
is what gives the remaining 10% a bad name!  

CLEARLY with 30 ELECTED uKippers OUT of 25,000+
AFTER 17 Years & £Many, Many MILLIONS
of other people’ money used to ENRICH A MERE FEW!


May I personally congratulate Mrs. Anne McIntosh the newly elected Conservative MP forthe brand new constituency, due to extensive boundary ajustments, of Thirsk and Molton whose behaviour in the bye election set UKIP a sound example.

In her acceptance speech her brief EUlogy to John Boakes the UKIP PPC who had died, thereby the delayed election, was both an exemplar to the new candidate who rode on John Boakes shirt tails to saving his deposit, AND beating the Liberal. candidate whilst both Lib.Dim. and Labour showed their heels clearly.

The Lib.Dim. result with 4 times that of UKIP despite the probable ‘sympathy vote’ clearly showed no love for the Ant & Deck show here as it was a lead where the Tory had more than twice the vote at 52%.

In Memoriam: John BOAKES 1947 – 2010

Embarrassingly UKIP’s local election site failed to even put an in memoriam or EUlogy to their long serving and sadly deceased candidate until prompted and the acknowledgement of his passed existence was purely perfunctory on the Part web site.

We should all take a moment to both think of John Boakes whose deise so clearly left the incoming replacement well placed and for those who didn’t know John Boakes perhaps they should wonder at just what sort of party UKIP is if they support it!

It is interesting to consider UKIP for a moment:

There are some736 seats in The House of Lords where UKIP have a tenuous hold on 2 deeply underwhelming Peers.

The House of Commons has 649 seats where UKIP have absolutely no one anywhere near within striking distance

MEPs where there are 754 seats Britain holds 72 and UKIP has a mere 12 and they are all something of an embarrassment and largely useless!

There are 433 Local Authorities with somewhere between 20 & 25,000 elected offices where it would seem UKIP hold around 20 with a further 10 or so turncoats who have lost the whip of their own party!

So out of around 25 to 30,000 elected Offices as we must also factor in:

The National Ass for Wales (So aptly named) where UKIP has NO representation

The Scottish Wee Pretendee Parliament where UKIP has NO representation.

The London EU Ass. where UKIP has NO representation
The Ass. for Northern Ireland (how apt.) where UKIP has NO representation.

I am unaware of UKIP holding office in any of the remaining EU Regional Assemblies and they have NO Lords Mayor.

I would submit that any Public Company (though not including a Bank) would by now have fired its board and replaced its executive if after investing as many £Millions over 17 years they were unable to command more than 0.08% market share.

UKIP being founded on Banking terms it seems rewards its failures with leadership, feather bedded nests as MEPs incompetent or soundly despised staff salaries and positions of irresponsibility on the NEC.

It would be hard to invent so crass a business model where in 17 years the party is best known for scandal, sleaze a leader who devoted an entire conference launch of a General Election to discussion of his lack of testicles (WE KNEW THAT!) and his puppet trying to parade his ‘black fellah’!

UKIP now has a SO CALLED leader trying to resign but hanging on until the actual leader can get his head together after making such a fool of himself in the election and with childish antics with planes rather than doing the job he was paid for! IF he can get sort himself out and think with his big head for a change rather than following his little head perhaps he can find a credible replacement as a puppet leader who isn’t a liar, a cheat and a charlatan and isn’t under a criminal cloud facing shame and possible prison for false accounting and money laundering!

Let us see just how long will this farce continue – 30 elected individuals out of over 25,000 available seats!!!

Oh and of the 30 it seems more gloom has surfaced:

Mayoral Candidate & Elected Councillor
Martyn AIKEN, UKIP PPC, Mayoral Candidate & Elected Councillorhas quit UKIP – possibly in the realisation now that he has been elected and can look with some clarity at UKIP and the caliber of support he might get or even possibly in the realisation that UKIP is leaderless, rudderless and visionless having clearly failed after 17 years.

UKIP has failed, as a result of incompetence, self serving greed, back biting, dishonesty, squabbling, lack of integrity, dishonesty, theft and bad publicity or then again he might have realised that UKIP may well face bankruptcy on Monday week as there is absolutely no viable defence for their breach of electoral law and idiotic posturing on the 67 times they were offered assistance by The Electoral Commission to restructure their unlawful receipts from a donor not properly registered.

UKIP is guilty and clearly any other verdict is a moral and legal impossibility – that will leave UKIP with an estimated debt of £1,200,000 payable either by David Lott, Nigel Farage, Andrew Smith and John Wittaker whose stupidity and incompetent dishonesty earned the debt or by the NEC who permitted these 4 idiots to behave in a totally irresponsible and unlawfull manner or even as an association the members may even be liable!

It does rather seem that Martyn Aiken is not alone on his council in realising that the days of betrayal by the 18th. Century concept of Party politics, the 19th. century solutions and ideas and the 20th. Century self interest are largely responsible for the attrocious mess  our Country is in and you will note he has opted to act responsibly as an INDEPENDENT in Alliance:

Town INDEPENDENTS join forces in Alliance
Published Date: 27 May 2010

INDEPENDENT councillors have caused a political storm after joining forces in an attempt to challenge the major parties in Hartlepool.

Eleven of the 13 councillors who were previously independent and without any affiliation to any parties have formed their own group to give them a greater say when it comes to local authority decisions.

In an added twist, former Ukip councillor Martyn Aiken – who stood in the General Election in Easington – has quit the party to become an independent and join the newly-formed group.

Members of the Association of Independent Councillors say the move will help them gain positions on council committees or outside bodies.

The two remaining independent councillors – Paul Thompson, of the Seaton ward, and Michelle Plant, of the Brus ward – have turned down the chance of linking up with the breakaway group.

The move has been questioned by opposition leaders, who query how independent councillors can be part of a group.

Councillor Cath Hill has been elected leader of the new group with councillor Hilary Thompson as deputy.

Coun Hill, who is cabinet member for children’s services, said: “The main reason we decided to form this group is because it can be difficult for independent councillors to be given positions on committees or outside bodies such as the fire and police authority.

“It doesn’t affect me because I am in the cabinet but for others there was a feeling that they were not in the best position to represent the people in their wards.”

Coun Hill, who confirmed she would not be receiving the leader’s allowance, added: “There will be no meetings where independent councillors will be told how to vote, that will not happen.

“People can still vote how they wish and remain independent.”

Those involved in the Association of Independent Councillors are Reuben Atkinson, Timothy Fleming, Steve Gibbon, Cath Hill, John Lauderdale, Alison Lilley, Geoff Lilley, John Marshall, Lilian Sutheran, Hilary Thompson, Michael Turner and Martyn Aiken.

Independent Mayor Stuart Drummond will not be affected by the changes.
Coun Plant said: “I didn’t feel it necessary to join as I can still have my voice heard and put my case forward at council meetings.”

Coun Thompson was not available for comment when approached by the Mail.

The town’s Labour Party takes up half of the elected member positions on Hartlepool Borough Council with 24 out of the 48 seats.

The Association of Independent Councillors has 12 seats, Liberal Democrats five, the Conservatives four and there are two independent councillors plus Mayor Drummond.

A council spokesman said: “We can confirm that a new political group known as the Association of Independent Councillors has been formed.

“Under local government legislation they are entitled to be considered as a group for political balance purposes.”

Councillor George Morris, leader of the Conservative group on the council, said: “How can a political group be made up of independent councillors?”

Councillor Jonathan Brash, leader of the Labour group, said: “I think that everybody gets a little confused when they hear of independents forming a group. But how other councillors organise themselves is up to them.”

Councillor Arthur Preece, leader of the Liberal Democrat group, was not available for comment.
