ADDITIONAL FACTS ADDED 21-Feb-2010 from a reminder from JUNIUS

Clean EUkip up NOW & make UKIP electable!

The corruption of some of EUkip’s leadership, their anti UKIP claque & the NEC is what gives the remaining 10% a bad name!


Not content with having this article written for nim which makes him look a complete pratt Nattrass takes his foolish bluster a legal step too far by telling lies about The Sunday Times – Not just his personal fantasies but he goes so far as to lay himself open to legal action.

However minded that The Sunday Times paid Farage probably insufficient to pay his lawyers rather than waste time on winning a reasonable case. I doubt on that basis that they are likely to take the idiotic ramblings of Nattrass seriously in view of just how fundamentally stupid he is.

Here is the Sunday Times article of November 15th. 2009 that Nattrass is maundering on about:

UKIP MEP Michael Nattrass in expenses fraud inquiry

An MEP for the United Kingdom Independence party is being investigated by the European Union’s anti-fraud watchdog over his use of expenses.
Michael Nattrass, who has represented the West Midlands in the European parliament since 2004, is the subject of an inquiry into whether Denis Brookes, one of his former aides, was paid through public funds while he was working as a regional organiser for UKIP. The EU does not allow taxpayers’ money to be used to pay party officials.
The inquiry into Nattrass, which is part of a wider investigation into UKIP’s finances, comes as one of its former MEPs, Tom Wise, was jailed last week for two years for embezzling funds out of his assistant’s allowance.
Separately, it has also emerged that Nattrass was using a business of which he was an equity partner as the “paying agent” for all his assistants’ salaries provided by the EU.

Between 2004 and summer this year, all of his assistants’ allowances were channelled through the business account of Nattrass Giles, a chartered surveyors in Birmingham which he founded nearly 30 years ago.
Nattrass was a signatory to the bank account, although he insisted last night that the administration was handled by another partner in the firm who has since died.
MEPs must not act as their own paying agents. The role can only be performed by “third parties”.
New rules brought in since July this year have further tightened the controls and MEPs can now only use accredited people or companies as paying agents.
Nattrass said he had been told by EU officials that he could use his Birmingham company.

He also insisted that Brookes had worked for him in his capacity as an MEP until his employment as an aide came to an end three years ago.

Nattrass is so stunningly stupid he is still trying to tell people that the lies and dishonesty of Farage and EUkip were not the cause of the guilty verdict in the Courts and a £3/4 Million debt earned. He merely shows himself as too stupid to be able to differentiate between the legitimate guilt of EUkip as proven and the utter disimilarity of the donation of Mr. Brown to the Lib.Dims. making the donation through a perfectly legitimate British Company approved by the authorities PRIOR to banking the cheque.

When EUkip was asked by the Electoral Commission to regularise the donation, a simple action, Andrew Smith, Nigel Farage, David Lott, John Wittacker and others made fools of themselves  and refused to co-operate despite letters, phone calls, ‘e’Mails, face to face meetings EUkip tried to get publicity at the expense of the Electoral Commission.

The Lib.Dims. took the entirely different action when although the monies they had received was completely legitimate still bent over backwards to assist the authorities and it could be argued that it was with their meticulous documentation made available to the authorities that the Police were able to prosecute Mr. Brown.

Ukip’s rulebreaking

SIR – It is not correct for Christopher Booker (October 25) to suggest that Ukip was guilty of only a “trivial breach of electoral law” due to an “oversight” by not checking whether their donor, Alan Bown, was on the electoral register.

The law is clear: political parties must check that a donor is on the electoral register each time they accept a donation over £200. Ukip chose not to do so on 67 separate occasions, over a period of more than a year, and despite repeated warnings from the Electoral Commission.

Ukip took donations it was not entitled to receive, which gave it financial resources it was not entitled to have under the law. Ukip accepted that these donations – which totalled more than £365,000 – were all impermissible. But the magistrates’ court ordered them to forfeit just £18,481.

The Electoral Commission’s view was that this treatment of one party which had not followed the rules was unfair to the majority that do follow the rules and which have previously forfeited impermissible donations. The Court of Appeal shared that view.

Christopher Booker also claimed that the Commission “seems unwilling to take further action” in relation to donations from 5th Avenue Partners to the Liberal Democrats. In fact, we are conducting an ongoing investigation into that issue.

Perhaps to help Nattrass and others who are too stupid to understand what happened they may find my article on the matter of help where the treasurer of The Lib.Dims. was interviewed and conversations were held with the Electoral Commission – I tried to make it simple to understand so even Nattrass can probably manage to get his head around the concept!

As for Nattrass blustering about taking legal action for defamation and what might that be Mike old chap, legally shouting BOO at the moon? Get real just HOW could Mike Nattrass be defamed? Was he or was he not under investigation by OLAF? Did the Sunday Times state that he WAS being investigated? So to a so called legislator telling the truth is defamatory!! Scarey when someone quite so stupid has bought his way into a position like this but in fairness not as bad as people like Andreasen, Bannerman, Agnew, Nuttall & Batten colluding in lies and dishonesty whilst supporting corruption to get their positions!

Over the years I’ve read some unmittigated drivel and outright lies in the EUkip magazine some will remember the pack of lies published by Mark Croucher that were so damaging to EUkip as a party, then there was the issue Croucher produced that was a mass of spelling errors and garbled electoral statements from non favoured candidates and so on and so fourth.

Mike Nattrass even admits he resorts to childish language to try to make his point – he fails and all he has managed to do is use the in house comic to write an attempt at self serving excuses and it must be considered on a par with other such damaging articles. Nattrass has sadly made a fool of himself and that he was permitted to make such damaging maunderings indicates either he is being set up by EUkip to be more easily controlled or is suspected of planning to leave the vile EFD after the election along with other MEPs who are only staying to stop further splits before the election. This article has damaged Nattrass, no doubt with the aim of discreditting him to weaken his position.

The corruption and bullying in EUkip is endemic and systemic, brought about by years of incompetent and venal leadership and now the weak and vascilating lack of visible leadership of Lord Pearson who has clearly failed to confront and control the self interest of Farage and his corrupt claque.


What is the exit and survival plan for these United Kingdoms to maximise on the many benefits of leaving The EU. It is the DUTY of our Politicians and Snivil Cervants to ensure the continuity, liberty and right to self determination of our peoples they have a DUTY to protect against crime and secure both our food and our border.

NONE of these DUTIES has a single British politician upheld for 40 years. They have drawn their incomes fraudulently and dishonesty.

Politicians are failing to tell the truth, but so are almost all wanabe Politicians, the MSM and Snivil Cervants.

The fact is that even if EVERY British MEP wanted change in The EU it would achieve NOTHING.
Every single British Politician, of EVERY Party, elected since before we joined the EUropean Common Market, has promised to change The EU’s CAP – In 40 Years they have achieved absolutely NOTHING!

To try to put a value on OUR Freedom is as futile as floccipaucinihilipilification and as odious as the metissage of our societies, as we rummage in the ashes of our ancestors dreams, sacrifices and achievements, the flotsam of our hopes and the jetsam of our lives, consider the Country and Anglosphere which we thus leave our children and the future, with shame!

I SUGGEST – since there is clearly no political party of repute, advocating or campaigning for withdrawal of these United Kingdoms from the EU and restoration of our independent sovereign, democracy, with Justice & the right to self determination in a free country. Deny the self seeking & meaningless wanabe MEPs the Mythical Mandate for which they clamour. Diktat is imposed from The EU but Law should be made at Westminster, for our Country & our Peoples.
