They have surrounded themselves with low grade inadequates and the corrupt as staff to seem to be competent by comparison!
Again and again UKIP Leadership demeans UKIP and betrays the remaining genuine UKIP supporters, many of whom dare not speak out for fear of the sock puppets and cyber bullies UKIP leadership are surrounded and protected by!
once again it is good to see Nikki Sinclaire acquitting her duty rather than drag the reputation of UKIP into the gutter – as with the liar and serial fraud Derek Clarke, or dressing up as a chicken to show the gravitas of their approach to the job they were elected to do, whilst gaining double page spread publicity for racial and religious bigotry and hatred as with UKIP’s one time puppet leader Malcolm Pearson, or consorting with prostitutes as when Nigel Farage received such publicity or taking on the issues of gravitas such as Paul Nuttall with his endless tedium about failed pubs and the right to smoke etc. etc.
I note Paul Nuttall made a complete ass of himself by trying to deal with something based on knowledge and intelligence in commerce and was unsurprisingly completely wrong see CLICK HERE – It is just this sort of ill informed and crass statement so commonplace in UKIP which sabotages any credibility they may one day build up when one knows the following FACTS:
The Directive Nuttall had commented on as a UKIP Leadership member and MEP, has been in place for over 30 years and only applies to PLCs (publicly traded companies) – hardly the small business he seeks to claim and might perhaps have been expected to have some grasp of.
It is clear that this directive only applies to PLCs and not to limited companies..
Nowadays it is hard enough for small businesses to start up and survive without knocking confidence further.
Publishing the wrong information is severely discouraging small businesses, especially start-ups.
While this deters the individual business, spreading false information could damage the recovery of our economy as a whole.
Parliamentarians learn the ropes at Defence Academy
A Defence Policy and Business news article
Last week the Defence Academy at Shrivenham played host to twenty-five politicians and Members of Parliament as part of the Armed Forces Parliamentary Scheme (AFPS).
The two-day stay at the internationally-acclaimed centre of excellence for defence study combined briefings, discussions and a few hands-on practical demonstrations.
The parliamentarians had explained to them the role of the military in a democracy and the MOD as a Department of State, and how the ‘casualty chain’ works, basically the method by which seriously injured troops are returned to the UK.They were also confronted with an array of weaponry including Kalashnikovs, SA80s and Timberwolf sniper rifles, which some of them were able to try out on the firing range.Newcomer to the scheme, West Midlands MEP Nikki Sinclaire, said she found it fascinating to hear from the families of Armed Forces personnel and learn of their particular needs and challenges.Education and health for these family members were high on her agenda when she said ‘if Jill’s not happy then neither is Jack!’, referring to the importance of personnel deploying overseas being content in the knowledge they are leaving their families in a safe and secure environment. She added:“It’s good to hear that these issues are being addressed by local authorities.”The AFPS was founded in 1988, the brainchild of Sir Neil Thorne.Concerned at the lack of subject knowledge displayed by MPs whilst debating defence issues, Sir Neil, a former gunner, quickly identified the urgent need to educate politicians and give them a clear insight into the structure of Defence, the interface between military and civilian personnel, and the unique workings, ethos and lifestyle of the Armed Forces.There was a time when the majority of standing MPs would have served in one of the arms of the British military, but with National Service having been phased out some fifty years ago, ‘insider’ knowledge of military service fell to a sprinkling of MPs who had had a former career in uniform.
