Hi,
I do appreciate that Douglas Denny has been consistently proven a liar, a cheat, a fantasis and undeniably corrupt having for many years acted as part of Nigel Farage’s clique of fixers helping to rig Ukip internal elections and selection processes and cloaking and defending the excesses of Nigel Farage – one of his snappy yappy unethical and unprincipled attack poodles.
However there are few who were acting for and on behalf of Nigel Farage for so long and though he may well not be prepared to publish the full facts, for fear of his own prosecution, in this effort of mitigation I do believe he goes some way to showing the personality and unsuitability of Nigel Farage who he for so long was willing to befoul Ukip and the body politic.
This letter was sent by Douglas Denny to Ukip NEC:
From: ddennyoptom@gmail.com
To: douglas.denny@btopenworld.com
Subject: Fw: Nigel and Leadership
Date: Fri, 15 May 2015
Dear REDACTED,

You probably think this email is sent out of vindictiveness. It is not. I have always been concerned with the best interests of UKIP as it is the only viable anti-EU movement in British politics.

If you ever considered my submissions at the NEC over the fifteen years I was there to have had any merit then I ask you to now consider what I have to say in a spirit of pragmatism and honest opinion.

I think (very much) you are backing the wrong horse. Nigel has had his day. He is to be thanked for taking UKIP to where it is now – but I assure you all my political instincts say he is definitely NOT the man to take it forwards into this new era where there is a referendum campaign to be fought. Now is the time he should gracefully go and look back on a golden career. To continue he will descend into acrimony and in-fighting within UKIP and ultimately be deposed, or UKIP become more and more irrelevant in British politics. The public hate in-fighting in a party and it kills it in the public mind.

What IS important is persuading the British public of the issues so they understand it is not in the interests of the country to stay in the EU.

Note: the GBP (Great British Public) have already been brainwashed over the years such that a recent poll indicates that 54% of the public want to actually stay in. That means with the don’t know’s and those that don’t vote, a referendum if carried out now would be lost.

Nigel with his aggressive shouty personality is simply not the person to put the arguments cogently and assertively and quietly with authority – without appearing to be a right wing bigot. It now needs someone different to put those arguments that the public can trust – and I mean ALL political shades of the public.

Like it or not Nigel does indeed appear to be a right wing bigot, and puts off a large percentage of the people. That is why UKIP has never shaken off the image of being BNP-lite. He did not get in to Thanet because of this very reason. (Patrick O’Flynn put his finger on it when he said Thanet has a UKIP council elected – but did not vote for Nigel as MP). Nigel puts off the ‘Left’ wing people, and more importantly – women who immediately see through him straight away as a manipulating aggressive bigot. I have had heard several women, when he has been mentioned, say he gives them the creeps.

I admire your loyalty to him but in politics one has to be flexible. Leaders have their moment, their time in the spotlight – and the trick is in knowing when they should leave. They never do themselves. They always have to be pushed. NOW is Nigel’s time to go.

Listen to Stuart Wheeler and Hugh Williams – both quiet people who observe, digest and come up with sensible opinions. They are right. Patrick O’Flynn is right too, and his public denouncement will dog Nigel constantly if Nigel tries to stay in position as leader. Also Nigel does NOT have the mandate of the membership after this GE – he LOST – so he should go back to the membership – that is only right and proper. It is improper to cling on like a limpet and is another reason to go as the public don’t like that aspect of it either. Nigel is damaged goods now. He must go or the party, though it will of course continue, will slowly whither on the vine as support drains away with a damaged leader who will attract much criticism of his leadership – it will keep coming up..

UKIP needs new blood in the leadership if it is to continue as a viable force in British politics. I am very sorry that you cannot seem to see this.

Douglas Carswell is the only man with the qualifications to carry UKIP forward successfully.

Best regards,
Douglas Denny.

Hi,
it seems even The Sun has seen through the fraud that is Ukip, run as a one man band by a little man of much deceit and guile but no apparent integrity
FARAGE, Nigel 94 ORCHESTRATING A DEFECTION 01
As I have warned for many years not only does Ukip, after 22 years, have absolutely no sign of an ethical, responsible and viable EU eXit strategy but its absolute leader has zero vision for his cult or our Country beyond his own self interest.
Now it seems he is prepared to sell out Ukip for his own gain by trying to force an early referendum on IN?OUT of the EU when all informed sources appreciate that due to Ukip’s abject failure to show an ethical, viable EU eXit strategy and a clear informed and responsible vision for the future and Nigel Farage’s divisive incompetence as a leader who is not so much like ‘marmite’ but so corrupt and vindictive that he and his cult have built so many enemies they are assured that in a Referendum they would ensure Britain would remain in the EU.If the campaign to Leave_The_EU is fronted or managed from within the Werstminster Bubble or by a self selected clique of London based schmoozers approved by the Notting Hill set and the Tories who were the very people who got Britain embroiled in the EU Scam – IF this happens we WILL lose the referendum

Difficult as it clearly is, as The New Statesman has made clear for the less well informed, David Cameron is glad of the help of Nigel Farage in ensuring a referendum to Leave_The_EU would be lost as he has permitted such self serving snakes in the grass – the very Judas Goats who will lead Britain to the slaughter by permitting, due to the divisive actions of Ukip, members of the political Westminster bubble to front the No Campaign with a team of some of the best schmoozers and boot lickers to be found in the bubble, as they put forward the perceived wisdoms that will enhance their job and raise money to lead the Country to the slaughter.

It seems the self nominated Mathew Elliott, Business for Britain, Tax Payers Alliance and no doubt the self congratulatory Ian Milne (who has recently written a cut and paste boilerplate article on the motor industry without even considering how the industry functions with JIT and part sourcing!).Clearly with such inept Westminster bubble sycophants the aim is to ensure the Leave_The_EU campaign loses as would have the AV argument Mathew Elliott led had he not been rescued from his own incompetence!

As it stands at the moment not only do the polls show a referendum would be lost but that support for Leave_The_EU has dwindled as membership of Ukip and the Farage cult has grown!

As I have consistently warned the higher up the tree the monkey climbs the more you see its @rse, as Farage’s fan club has grown and his cult has received more exposure they have come under increased scrutiny and their faults, failures and internal endless squabbling and divisions have become ever more apparent.

It seems increasingly l;ikely that Gerard Batten and Nigel Farage are all too likely to be facing criminal charges shortly and there is every possibility Nigel Farage’s doxy the serial liar Annabelle Fuller will face criminal charges before the election comes or shortly after – charges that are almost bound to implicate Nigel farage in the light of her tel;ephone conversations with him in the early hours from Andrew Bridgen’s apartment when, as I understand Patrick O’Flynn has attested she ‘targeted’ Andrew Bridgen a Tory MP before admitting she had deliberately stolen his Blackberry phone device, his House of Commons Pass and confidential correspondence.

The Telegraphs self serving hagiography written for Nigel Farage based on the latest book he has had written about him not withstanding – some of the media are willing to expose the truth as with The Sun, as I mentioned earlier and show here:

The SUN 15-Mar-2015 02 page 29PLEASE – ENLARGE THE ARTICLE TO READ IT
.
Whilst on the subject it is worthy of note that no one with ANY understanding of the workings of our own Governance and the checks and balances of Parliament will realise that whoever was in Government and whatever their will and majority it would not be possible let alone possible or beneficial to have a referendum in 2015 as do not forget that a Bill to enable such a referendum would have to be passed first which would require debate, passing the House of Commons stages to go to the House of Lords where it would be likely to be heatedly debated as so many members of that place are funded by the EU and obliged by oath to serve the EU not Britain! Even when (IF) passed by the HoL it would then require ratification of any changes made and a vote in the HoC before final reading in the HoL before being put forward for Royal Assent – then there would be the administrative problems of public debate followed by organising the Referendum itself!

Only an irresponsible fool would risk Britain’s entire future on an over hastey Referendum and even the 2017 target is optimistic in the light of, as Cameron puts it ‘the moving parts’, do not forget the huge body of law that must be considered and the immense areas of international compliance that must be put in place to ensure the security of our trade with the rest of the world – not just the EU.

Let us not forget when we hear light weight pundits wittering about percentages of UK law that are dictated by the EU – they have virtually no idea what percentage of the law has been enacted to be compliant with the EU as we in Britain are obliged to comply with laws and terms handed down by such bodies as the WTO, WHO, UN, CODEX and many more international bodies that enable our global trade.

To blithly quote %s of law is to totally mislead, whether deliberately, dishonestly or in stupidity is entirely another point the largest single % of our laws are Road Traffic Acts, including closures for repair etc which are short term are these to be considered in %age terms when of so little relevance – what weighting is given tyo a single Law that has upto 100 scheduled parts relative to a couple of lines of law closing a road for laying a watermain?

It is clearly irresponsible to whip up/incite the electorate with such meaningless figures!

May I commend those with a serious intent to try to campaign to Leave_The_EU to first read FleXcit access to which can be found in the >Right Sidebar< of this blog or go directly to http://www.flexcit.org This will however expose you to some indication of the complexity of the aim to Leave_The_EU – a task which clearly has been over simplified by the more self serving individuals and organisations who seek to hide the truth for their own gain – Just where is the detailed work of the likes of IEA, Business For Britain, Ukip, Tax Payers Alliance, The Tories, Nigel Farage’s Cult, Ian Milne, Mathew Elliott, David Bannerman and the army of those within the Westminster Bubble seeking their own ends at the expense of OUR Country?

Before a Referendum the No Campaign must first ensure its representative committee is selected by the peoples of Britain not just appointed/anointed by the self same political elite who caused the EU disaster in the first place – then we need Regional Organisers firastly Region by Region, then County by County, City by City, Town by Town, Village by Village and Community by Community – not like a political party or cult that has its target areas but in every community in these United Kingdoms and beyond the mallign influence of politicians Unions and the like.

For this Referendum to be of ANY value it must be seen to be fair, equally and fully funded and without the interference and corruption by either politicians or the EU, and avoiding being misled by companies, corporations and other influences that draw their instructions from foreign sources as with Nissan of Sunderland who are a French franchise or most of the water companies and power suppliers who are similarly French, nor Siemens, British Gas, HSBC etc etc who are also foreign – one should not expect Councils to take a stance as they are there to represent the people not Bertelsmans nor themselves!

We must remember that we have laws in this Country that demand that schools and educational establishments shall NOT be politicised and thus teachers and the like have no part in this referendum, beyond their own votes.

Perhaps you start to understand the complexity of holding this referendum if it is to be binding and not the very source of an ongoing running sore that the EU has been due to the duplicity of its enactment and verification to date.

Greg_L-W..

Nigel Farage Defends his protege Matthew Richardson’s ‘Bigots Deserve Representation’ Comment!

000a ukip-025 count.png

~~~~~~~~~~#########~~~~~~~~~~
.
Hi,
here are more details of the comments made by Ukip’s senior staffer Matthew Richardson, an allegedly qualified and experienced barrister (look up more details about him via the search facility at the top of the >Right Sidebar<).

I am given to understand that this clown was introduced to Ukip by Annabelle Fuller and subsequently promoted by Nigel Farage – rather reminds one of when she introduced another ‘chum’ to Ukip, Stephen Sobey, or as he called himself Stephen Sobey-Neville, who she had been at Uni. with and who then worked for the Tory Party at Tory Party Central Office – on her recommendation Nigel Farage, against clear advice proving he was a fraud and a Tory plant, Stephen was put in a position of trust in the Press Office!

Eventually after he had orchestrated one disaster too many he was dumped by Farage!

What a surprise (NOT) when he turned up as a director of Fuller’s faux company Athena PR which worked for Nigel Farage!

One has to wonder if Matthew Richardson is yet another Annabelle Fuller plant and do note Nigel Farage, as late as this evening is defending this particular plant in the Ukip weed patch!

I guess one comfort Ukipper’s can take is that having finally been interviewed under caution by the police for her theft of a Blackberry recording phone device, confidential correspondence and a House of Commons Pass from the Tory MP Andrew Bridgen’s flat, and having tried to cover her theft, it seems, by claiming he had sexually assaulted her – a claim she soon dropped when she realised it was far from plausible and all but unsustainable.

Many will remember her claims of trauma! The evidence of which would seem to have been her shortly afterwards publishing photos of herself strutting her stuff at Ascot:
Horse Racing - The Royal Ascot Meeting 2011 - Day Four - Ascot Racecourse

By now I presume that the police will have passed her file to The CPS and the only relevant question is howmany other offences has she asked to be taken into consideration!

As Annabelle Fuller has admitted the theft openly, even bragged of it, it would seem that there is absolutely no possibility, if justice is to be seen to be done, that the CPS will fail to prosecute, particularly as the offence was one involving National Security!

Ukip’s Matthew Richardson Says Party ‘Should Represent Bigots’, Calls NHS A ‘Waste Of Money’

 
Posted: 24/01/2015 23:28 GMT Updated: 2 hours ago
MATTHEW RICHARDSON

The man recruited by Ukip to stop “bad stuff” about the party appearing in the media… has comically fluffed his lines by stating that Nigel Farage’s Party should represent ‘bigots’.

That’s right – “bigots”.

The same senior official also claimed the NHS was the “biggest waste of money in the UK”. The remarks were made by Matthew Richardson, the party’s secretary and a member of its national executive council.

According to The Sunday Times Richardson told a meeting last month: “I’ve said before, people talk about Ukip being bigots. There are hundreds of thousands of bigots in the United Kingdom and they deserve representation.” He also joked about party leader Nigel Farage, saying: “He’s a Kent man. Well, sounds like Kent, anyway.”

Richardson added that the Ukip leader would “have to be a moron” to put the party’s plan for a turnover tax for businesses in its manifesto. He insisted the comments were “clearly light-hearted harmless banter in the pub” and did “not reflect any seriously held belief”.

He added: “I don’t recall the conversation taking place but some of the words attributed to me are actually a quote from the late (Tory MP) Eric Forth, which if they were spoken at all would have been on a discussion about him. None of this is reflective of my own views or those of the party and I am sure any reader would recognise the difference between a formal party position and the sort of jag lots of people have with their mates while having a drink.”

Meanwhile, footage from 2010 of Richardson attacking the health service at events in the USA were released by Labour. Speaking at the Young Americans Foundation conference in Washington he said: “When I was younger a trillion was an astronomic number. Now when I look at our national deficits, and your national deficits, actually it is an economic number.

“A number I couldn’t possible imagine when I was younger is now the amount of money that is owed by my country, and soon more than that by your country, to other countries, paying for wasteful socialist programmes. And of course at the heart of this, the Reichstag bunker of socialism is the National Health Service.”

At the Conservative Political Action Conference in the same year he said: “This socialist government wastes money like you can’t imagine. They have started doing every wasteful scheme under the sun … The biggest waste of money of course in the United Kingdom is the NHS, the National Health Service.”

The release of the footage signals a more aggressive approach to Ukip from Labour, which faces losing ground to Farage’s party in some of its northern heartlands – as shown in the Heywood and Middleton by-election in October where Ed Miliband’s party could only manage a narrow victory.

Richardson was reportedly appointed last year to help prevent unfavourable stories about the party making it into the media, but Ukip insisted he was not involved with the press operation.

Labour’s Jon Trickett, shadow minister without portfolio, said: “Either Nigel Farage supports this or Mr Richardson cannot stay in post. Nigel Farage cannot simultaneously defend these comments and claim that his party stands for the NHS free at the point of use. The man chosen by Nigel Farage to control Ukip’s image has compared the NHS to Hitler’s Nazi bunker. This is Ukip’s real agenda on the NHS.

“Today Labour is shining a light on Nigel Farage and his party’s true views on the future of the NHS. They claim to defend the service we cherish, but they want to dismantle its foundations. Ukip can no longer attempt to fool people. They are a party of Tory people, Tory money and they want to extend the worst Tory policies, which would have horrific effects on working people.”

A Ukip spokeswoman played down the significance of Richardson’s comments, pointing out he was not an elected representative or party spokesman. She said: “He is a very talented barrister and does his job extremely well. He is not involved with the party’s press operation.”

Earlier on Saturday, Ukip’s communities spokesman defected to the conservative Party. Amjad Bashir, who represents Yorkshire and the Humber, met with David Cameron on Friday and was due to announce his defection on Saturday evening.

However, before the switch was made public, Ukip announced that Bashir had been suspended from the party for “extremely serious” allegations including unanswered financial and employment questions. A senior Tory told the Press Association that the suspension by Ukip was a “desperate attempt” to play down the impact of Bashir’s defection.

Police Interview Annabelle Fuller, Nigel Farage’s ‘Lover’, 3.1/2 years after she admitted theft from an MP’s flat!!

.

~~~~~~~~~~#########~~~~~~~~~~
.
Hi,
3.1/2 years after Annabelle Fuller, whilst working for Nigel Farage in one or other capacity, admitted she had breached National security by stealing a House of Commons pass, a Blackberry communication & recording device and confidential correspondence from Conservative MP Andrew Bridgen’s flat, the police fi8nally got around to interviewing her.

This does not give one much faith in British Security!

I understand that approaching a year ago the MP demanded police took action against Annabelle Fuller with regard to the implausible claims she made of sexual assault. Allegations Annabelle Fuller would seem to have dreamed up to cover her theft when caught fleeing the building by the building’s security guard.

Annabelle Fuller would seem to have appreciated her allegatiomns were implausible and unsustainable shortly after her ‘claim’ as she withdrew her allegations.

The tardy manner in which the police have dealt with this matter adds credibility to the claims of Jasna Badzak that would seem to imply that there are certain corrupt police who are aiding and abetting criminality of individuals in Ukip’s leadership team.

Allegations of criminality that would seem to be bourn out both by Douglas Denny and evidence he holds and the transcripts of Gerard Batten’s Court case against Jasna Badzak which seem clearly to show perversion of the course of Justice and dishonesty on the part of Gerard Batten and members of the police and judiciary.

Further it seems likely that various Freedom of Information applications, which seem to have presented those who are obliged to supply the data with cause to stall and wriggle in efforts to avoid supplying the facts, will when they are supplied under law may well place the criminals who were involved in Court facing serious charges and the probability of consequential custodial sentences and subsequent damages that could well bankrupt them and Ukip!

Matthew Richardson of Henderson Chambers known for his fraudulent impersonation of an American economist as he delivered lectures in China, no doubt to the embarrassment of Charles Gibson QC, his head of chambers, is Now a Ukip Spin Doctor & would be legal fixer, who is not doing very well!!!

.

~~~~~~~~~~#########~~~~~~~~~~
.
Hi,

Matthew Richardson the Barrister hired by Ukip in June 2013 really doesn’t seem to be much use as a spin doctor and legal fixer does he, when you consider the massive preponderence of bad publicity Ukip’s racism, anti homosexuality, anti judaism, misogyny and abuse of power has generated in the media.

I doubt if Henderson Chambers head of Chambers, Charles Gibson QC, can be too impressed with this chappie judging by his track record of managing to keep Ukip’s bad press out of the media or his ineptitude at recruiting Tory MPs, or for that matter his efforts to destabilise the Tories. Let alone his antics, fraudulently delivering lectures in China some time ago!

Ukip hires City barrister to keep ‘bad stuff’ hidden, leaked documents reveal

The revelation is damaging for UKIP chief Nigel Farage, who tries to present his party as a ‘people’s army’ which does not indulge in typical Westminster spin

Hired: Matthew Richardson

Ukip chiefs hired a City barrister to keep “bad stuff” hidden from the public, leaked documents show.

National executive committee meeting minutes from June 2013 detail how Matthew Richardson became Ukip secretary.

They state Mr Richardson’s role as party secretary would be deciding “whether to take injunctions out” when Ukip is criticised in the media.

And they suggest the party may have skeletons in the closet which he has been tasked to hide.

The minutes state: “We need to ensure all of the bad stuff is kept out of the public domain.

“As party secretary (Mr Richardson) would try to ensure that we keep a tight reign on things.”

The revelation is damaging for Ukip chief Nigel Farage, who tries to present his party as a ‘people’s army’ which does not indulge in typical Westminster spin.

UKIP has been repeatedly rocked by a series of offensive comments from candidates, councillors and supporters – but claims it wants members to be free to speak their minds.

Do ‘gaffes’ make UKIP less electable?

  • YES – 71%

  • NO  – 29%

Labour’s shadow solicitor general Karl Turner said: “This is typical of a party which pretends to be one thing, but in reality is something else altogether.

“Ukip shouldn’t need a top lawyer to stop their members making offensive remarks – they just need to stop making them.”

The leaked minutes are taken from a meeting of UKIP’s national executive committee in June 2013.

The party’s top officials discussed the need for a top lawyer to be “actively involved” in its media operation.

“We will face some tough times and need to decide whether to take injunctions out or not,” the minutes state.

Mr Richardson was then introduced to the committee as the chosen nomination for the party secretary role.

The lawyer told the members he “specialises in online reputation management”.

The minutes then show party chairman Steve Crowther complained that “work must be done in dealing with what our members publish”.

And Mr Richardson agreed “that the party in general must get a grip on this”.

The committee unanimously agreed to approve Mr Richardson’s appointment at the end of the meeting.

He could not be reached personally for a comment last night.

But a Ukip spokeswoman said: “Like all other parties we have a party secretary to manage legal and political affairs.

“No injunctions have ever been used.”

Ukip Thanet’s Chairman’s Extremist Past

The corruption of EUkip’s leadership, 
their anti UKIP claque in POWER & the NEC 

is what gives the remaining 10% a bad name!  

.

Ukip Thanet’s Chairman’s Extremist Past – though to be fair he does claim to wish to distance himself now he has been exposed. It is not the past of Ukip members that is a fraction as concerning as the racist, anti homosexual, anti jewish and anti democratic behaviour of Ukip TODAY that is deeply worrying.

.

~~~~~~~~~~#########~~~~~~~~~~

Hi,

when reading the article below it is worth noting that shortly after joining Ukip Martyn Heale was Nigel Farage’s election agent. This is unsurprising as informed readers will be aware that Nigel Farage has always had close links with extremist organisations, not just with his extremist behaviour as a schoolboy but in aduly life.
FARAGE, Nigel 37 DEAVIN, Mark - LeCOMBER, TonyThe picture above shows Nigel Farage, during a period when he had quit Ukip, with Mark Deavin, who although he was a BNP member sat with the Ukip NEC for a time, and Tony LeComber who was a senior member of the BNP and had convictions and had been in prison for explosives related issues.

It is widely believed that at that time Farage was seeking the leadership of the BNP.

More recently Nigel Farage has consistently been all too happy to be associated witjh the gutter sweepings of EU politicvs forming both his EFD Group and now his EFDD Group in the EU with racists, anti Jewish and anti homosexual partners, many with particularly unsavoury extremist views and beliefs.

It is little wonder that such as Martyn Heale, Etheridge, Gerard Batten and their odious ilk thrive in the Ukip of today as did Buster Mottram who was a part of Nigel Farage’s family (living as he did with a close relative of Farage’s).

Even the most cursory check on Google will show up some of the vile sympathies and behaviour of members of Ukip staff and a very long list of overt racist and extreme superstitious views not to mention libertine sexual practices & louche irresponsible behaviour, some of a criminal nature.


UKIP’s Thanet South chairman regrets National Front past

The UKIP party chairman in the constituency where leader Nigel Farage hopes to become an MP has said he “deeply regretted” his past membership of the National Front.

Martyn Heale, now a county councillor for UKIP in Kent, was a member of the far right organisation in the 1970s, but he insists he is not racist.

He also told the BBC it was “really depressing” to be reminded of his past.

Mr Farage confirmed he would seek selection in Thanet South in August.

Tory activist

Mr Heale has been a member of UKIP for more than a decade, and prior to that was a Conservative activist for almost 20 years.

He acknowledged that in the late 70s he was an active member of the National Front for more than a year.

Councillor Heale did not want to do a broadcast interview, but told BBC political correspondent Chris Mason: “I obviously regret what I did.”

“It is really depressing,” he added, to be reminded of his past.

Mr Heale acted as Mr Farage’s election agent in 2005 when the UKIP leader ran, unsuccessfully, for Parliament in Thanet South.

Nigel Farage: “I’ve taken on yet another very big challenge – but one that I relish”

A spokesman for UKIP said Mr Heale had been a party member for several years before the ban on former members of far right organisations was brought in.

To expel him “would be contrary to natural justice”, he said.

Mr Farage, who was born in Kent, has represented south-east England in the European Parliament since 1999.

South Thanet is currently held by the Conservative MP Laura Sandys, who was elected in 2010 and has a majority of 7,617.

She is standing down and the Tories have chosen a founding member of UKIP and former leader of the party, Craig MacKinlay, as their candidate.

.

More Media Coverage Of apparent Ukip Corruption, dishonesty and underhand dealing – with or without Police collusion!
Yet another example of the vile MO of Ukip.

.

~~~~~~~~~~#########~~~~~~~~~~
.
Hi,
I find it quite surprising that the MoS chooses to overlook the fact that the media announced some weeks ago that Annabelle Fuller was under investigation by the police, the MoS themselves if I recall correctly,
In the light of the facts published (at long last) by The Times and other sources, one is clearly at liberty to wonder if corrupt police were involved and were deliberately delaying justice; as surely Annabelle Fuller’s admitted theft of Andrew Bridgen’s Blackberry phone device, confidential correspondence and his House of Commons pass must surely be not only a simple theft that could be acted on rapidly but a security matter that thus becomes of some urgency!
How come Annabelle Fuller has not been arrested and charged with the theft after such a long period? Is this justice delayed is justice denied, as is so often the case, or a matter of deliberate police efforts to cover up a crime or trump up a crime on behalf of Ukip as would seem the case in the prosecution of Jasna Badzak and Nikki Sinclaire both of which seemingly depend on the thinest of evidence supplied by Ukip themselves either by members, officers or funded staff!
Setting aside the factor of Annabelle Fuller’s relationship with Nigel Farage, which is widely believed to have been intimate over a long period, she has a long and established record as an intimate of Nigel Farage’s prepared to lie and cheat on his behalf, willing to indulge in criminality for him and of a particularly offensive nature.
Annabelle Fuller also has a track record of supplying the media with at best imaginitive stories though they seem to be more plausible as attention seeking or outright dishonesty and her admitted mental instability and self harming are a matter of public record, as is Nigel Farage’s willingness to lie on her behalf, in her defence.
You may well remember I published on this blog that the vaguely foolish Hermann Kelly had threatened a senior Ukip member and a journalist, in a public restaurant, should they dare to publish the fact that Annabelle Fuller was Nigel Farage’s mistress – at which stage the senior Ukip member told him not to make a fool of himself as such an action would bankrupt the party if they chose to publish the facts.
This conversation was made in a public place – a foolish attempt to bully a journalst and his contact in public! Not disimilar to eMails and letters threatening people who might expose Ukip’s corruption, as sent by Ukip members and the police! One need only glance at comments made about Richard North, Jasna Badzak, Nikki Sinclaire, John West, Richard Suchorzewski, Niall Warry myself and many others by such as Mark Croucher, Douglas Denny, Derek Clark, Mick McGough and others, including gullible non entities seemingly making comments based on apparent Ukip scripts based upon very distorted facts!
Again and again this sort of behaviour emanates from Ukip, showing clearly they act in self interest and are as such unfit for purpose failing to act in a manner fitting for their office and duty representing the electorate, all be it a minority of the electorate!

Police accused of bid to shut down MoS investigation of Ukip… as Murdoch sues Scotland Yard for ‘hacking journalists’ emails

  • A Former Ukip official received a harassment warning for talking to MoS
  • About Annabelle Fuller making claims about Andrew Bridgen
  • Detectives were thought to be preparing to speak to Ukip’s Nigel Farage 

A leading Tory MP has called on Boris Johnson to investigate claims that Scotland Yard officers have abused their position by trying to shut down newspaper investigations into Ukip.

Zac Goldsmith made the demand after a former Ukip official received a harassment warning for talking to The Mail on Sunday about her claims an alleged ‘former mistress’ of Ukip leader Nigel Farage had fabricated a sexual assault case against a fellow Tory MP.

Police are investigating Jasna Badzak’s allegation that Annabelle Fuller falsely accused Andrew Bridgen of inappropriately touching her at his Westminster flat in 2011.

The call for an investigation comes as Rupert Murdoch launches legal action against Scotland Yard for ‘hacking’ thousands of journalists emails. 

The MP for North West Leicestershire, who denied wrong-doing, was arrested but no charges were brought. Ms Badzak, 43, who used to work as a Ukip press officer, says she has given the police details of messages she exchanged with Ms Fuller about the incident.

But when this newspaper spoke to Ms Badzak last month about a new development in the case – that detectives were planning to question Mr Farage after establishing that Ms Fuller had made phone calls to the Ukip leader on the evening she was in Mr Bridgen’s flat – Ms Badzak was warned off.

Ms Badzak was issued with a ‘Prevention of Harassment’ letter by a Met officer, Detective Sergeant Gordon McKay, on the grounds the conversation had led to Ms Fuller being ‘subjected to numerous phone calls and emails’. The Mail on Sunday sent three emails to Ms Fuller prior to printing our story to clarify the details. When asked what she had said on the phone to Mr Farage on the night in question, Ms Fuller replied: ‘Are you now a police officer?’

Ex-party spin doctor Ms Fuller, 32, was described as Farage’s ‘former mistress’ under Parliamentary privilege in Strasbourg earlier this year by Nikki Sinclaire, a former Ukip MEP. Mr Farage and Ms Fuller strongly deny an affair and Ms Fuller has since stopped working for the party.

Mr Goldsmith, the MP for Richmond Park, who wrote to Mr Johnson on Thursday about the case – as the Mayor he has ultimate oversight of Scotland Yard – said he was concerned by claims officers could have been abusing their office. On Friday, former Tory MP Louise Mensch submitted two criminal complaints about the alleged conduct of officers. Her move came after she learned that another serving officer at the Met had warned two reporters – who had contacted Ukip MEP Gerard Batten to ask about his alleged links to far-Right organisations – against publishing articles ‘deemed to be untruthful and concerning’.

It seems to be an abuse of the criminal law to prevent citizens talking to journalists 
Tory MP Louise Mensch 

Last night a friend of Mr Bridgen said: ‘Andrew was approached by the police as a result of new information provided by Jasna Badzak regarding false allegations made about him by Annabelle Fuller in June 2011. Andrew is extremely concerned by the pace of the investigation into Ms Fuller’s apparent perverting the course of justice.’

Ms Fuller said: ‘I reported Jasna Badzak to the police over her continued harassment of me which started when she made false allegations about me.’

Ms Mensch said: ‘It seems to be an abuse of the criminal law to prevent citizens talking to journalists.’

The row has come amid growing concern over the use of police surveillance powers against journalists. A report published last week by the Commons Home Affairs Select Committee said the laws were not ‘fit for purpose’ and should be overhauled.

A Scotland Yard spokesman said: ‘On November 1, police received an allegation of harassment. On November 15, a 43-year-old woman was issued with a 1st Instance Harassment Warning.’

News UK claims police ‘hacking’ of journalists emails was ‘revenge’ bid

Rupert Murdoch is suing Scotland Yard for ‘hacking’ into thousands of journalists’ emails – in what was last night dubbed as ‘revenge’ for the phone-hacking scandal.

The Metropolitan Police has arrested dozens of reporters working for the tycoon’s newspapers over plotting to listen in to celebrities’ voicemail messages, making payments to public officials and other crimes, with seven convicted this year.

But in an ironic twist, News UK is now taking Scotland Yard to court, claiming damages for breach of confidentiality. The company, previously known as News International, says the Met kept and searched through an archive of journalists’ emails dating back to 2004 – many of which may have contained sensitive information.

Rupert Murdoch is suing Scotland Yard for ‘hacking’ into thousands of journalists’ emails – in what was last night dubbed as ‘revenge’ for the phone-hacking scandal.

News UK voluntarily handed over emails to police as part of the probe into phone-hacking at the News of the World, in 2011.

It had a policy of deleting old emails automatically after a set period of time, although computer experts were able to find information dating back to around 2004 on 64 storage tapes. News UK says police accessed the data from this without agreement.

Murdoch’s lawyers want the data – still kept by Scotland Yard – to be returned, as well as damages for ‘breach of confidence’ by the Met.

A lawyer involved in the phone-hacking trials said last night: ‘It sounds like there is an element of Murdoch’s revenge about this.’

Both parties declined to comment on the civil case.

Nigel Farage’s House Of Cards From The Inside is just another analysis of Ukip’s crass ineptitude & dishonesty

.

~~~~~~~~~~#########~~~~~~~~~~

Hi,
you will have noted by now that The Times is featuring Ukip and sadly; based on information from their contacts, which has by-passed Ukip’s weak yet aggresive press office with its grossly over paid ineptitude; The Times has found its way to much of the truth.
The Times is doing to Ukip what it does to the two main parties which is calling them to account and exposing their inadequacies and internal squabbles, incompetencies and corruptions – Ukip is learning the truth of my oft made warning ‘the higher up the tree the monkey climbs the more you see its @rse’.
Naturally Ukip is likely to fall back on the lame excuses that were so often used by their associates in the BNP ‘they’re picking on us because we are being so effective and threatening the establishment’!
This is palpable rubbish, what is happening is Ukip is experiencing the true scrutiny briefly, which front line politics constantly experiences.
I believe this exposure will probably culminate in either a major revalation either on Saturday or Sunday and then it is just a matter of whether Ukip is considered of adequate consequence to be kept in the public eye, where scrutiny will continue, just as it is experienced by the Tories and Labour or they slide into the obscurity they have earned having peaked.
It seems likely that Ukip will have to fall back on the shoddy journalism and desperate scribblings of the milti millionaire publisher Richard Desmond who cut his publishing teeth in the trash end of the magazine trade with publications that pandered to gossip and populist light weight like OK and New!
He then moved into adult TV (a EUphemism for soft porn) with Television X and Red Hot TV – moving on to such inglorious titles as The Daily Star and The Express – the latter being Ukip’s comic of choice with its corrupt standards of journalism and unrelenting yet undeclared bias!
With The Express Ukip has found itself with a partnership in light weight publicity and low grade press to match its standards and its hugely over salaried and over blown press office.
To quote their ever intellectual EU Press Officer Herman Kelly’s recent erudity ‘when you sleep with dogs you wake with fleas’ unoriginal I know but a measure of the competence and style of Ukip’s bullying and corrupt press office – a team who can best be judged by the paucity of publicity Ukip recieves, or ever has received over the years, which is of consequence or gravitas in publications of repute and stature.
For now just consider the facts proffered by The Times, all be it hidden behind their paywall, sometyhing of a saving grace for Ukip as few of their followers will thus learn the truth!

Inside Nigel’s house of cards

Nigel Farage is trying to create a professional party from a ragtag group more accustomed to setting the world to rights over pints of real ale

As the sun rose over Clacton in the hours after Ukip secured its first elected MP, Nigel Farage predicted that his Eurosceptic party could hold the balance of power at the next election.

Before setting its sights on May, Ukip is grappling with a more mundane challenge.

Mr Farage is trying to create a professional party from a ragtag group of veteran members more accustomed to setting the world to rights over pints of real ale than the strict discipline of modern politics.

Last May, Ukip moved into a new Mayfair office, formerly the home of Boris Johnson’s mayoralty campaign team, after it was offered rent-free by Andrew Reid, a solicitor.

Three months later, amid concerns that staff were running amok, Lisa Duffy, Ukip’s director, was sent in to sort things out.

In a confidential report presented to Ukip’s governing committee, Ms Duffy wrote that she had gone to the offices on party business “only to be embarrassed about the lack of cleanliness, silliness and lack of organisation and lack of people in offices”.

Describing how she had spent the first few days setting the office up in a “professional manner”, Ms Duffy said she had moved desks and organised a holiday rota which “identified that the following week we would have had no press officers if I hadn’t actioned this”.

She also removed “unprofessional” material from walls and hand written signs.

A former office worker said these included a “c*** of the week” award which was given to “whichever journalist had been the most critical that week”.

A hand-drawn picture of Mr Farage surrounded by hearts was pinned on the wall, alongside an “I love egg mayonnaise sandwiches” sign posted by Alexandra Phillips, a press officer.

Ms Duffy’s intervention in Ukip’s London offices came a few days after another attempt to professionalise the party had ended in disaster.

Will Gilpin, a former RAF pilot, began work in the £72,000-a-year post of chief executive in December 2012 but was sacked in August 2013.

He wrote to one member of the executive: “I’m afraid I came to the role in the belief it was actually a chief executive they were after, rather than chairman’s assistant.”

“In response to me saying I’m unhappy with how things are going I have been sacked. It’s a shame I wasn’t able to bring in the much needed modernizations, but it’s up to the leadership of course.”

The national executive committee (NEC) also had disputes over another key appointment, leaked emails reveal.

In May last year, Tim Aker, a political campaigner and former researcher, was put forward for the £62,000 post of head of policy.

William Dartmouth, a Ukip MEP, wrote to members of the NEC complaining that Mr Aker was being offered as the sole candidate and that he had been “directly concerned and therefore partly responsible for the embarrassment of the 2010 Ukip general election manifesto”.

Mr Farage, who backed Mr Aker, has previously disowned the 2010 manifesto as “drivel” and claimed he had never read it.

Mr Dartmouth said the manifesto was “electorally toxic” and that Mr Aker’s involvement with it should be a “total disqualification”.

Andrew Moncreiff, a member of Ukip’s executive committee, wrotethat Mr Aker was “harmless enough but thoroughly lightweight and has done virtually nothing for the party”.

Mr Aker did not reply to a request for comment.

Ukip’s Corruption Is Endemic & Hardly News!
This blog has written in detail, with endless examples, of Ukip corruption, fraud, cronyism, nepotism , abuse of office and dishonesty over many years with over 2.1/2 thousand blogs & detailed links!

UKIP ex Members Who Mostly Quit In Disgust

Hi,
you will note details of corruption in Ukip and of internal rigging and dishonesty in Ukip’s internal selection and election processes that show it is endemic – you may remember the detailed example shown by the Ukip returning Officer that exposed the corruption of the process and the involvement of officers of the party, including Christopher Gill and others CLICK HERE.
Then of course there are many resignation letters of well informed elected officers of the party such as:
Richard Suchorzewski CLICK HERE
John West CLICK HERE
Niall Warry CLICK HERE
Douglas Denny CLICK HERE
etc.
You will note from Douglas Denny’s letter of resignation he boasts of having detailed evidence of the criminality in Nigel Farage’s party, which as we all know is managed by Nigel Farage on a very hands on basis using his personal appointees, such as Douglas Denny, to corrupt processes to obtain the results he personally required!
I always believed that it was a criminal offence to fail to report crime and thus I wonder when Douglas Denny will be called to account on criminal charges.
 TIMES - Ukip Rig Elections 01TIMES - Ukip Rig Elections 02-Dec-2014 - 02
Then again we know that Nigel Farage’s doxy Annabelle Fuller acted on his behalf to rig elections whether in her corrupt move to belittle John West as a candidate by breech of data protection laws posting a confidential video on You Tube, a matter about which she lied, lies which led to lies from Nigel Farage and the resignation of John Wittaker MEP’s resignation as chairman.
Or as portrayed in Julia Langmaid’s letter:
LANGMAID, Julia 01 - Letter 31-07-2010
 Also seek out the details, all of which are covered on this web site, of John Wittacker MEP’s depature as Chairman or that of Chris Pain, Mike Nattrass MEP, or the lies of Ukip surrounding the departure of Jasna Badzak or Nikki Sinclaire MEP, Dr. David Abbott, Dr. Eric Edmonds, Roger Knappman MEP & Leader, Martin Hasslam, Petrina Holdsworth Chairman, Marta Andreasen MEP, David Bannerman MEP, John Petley (unless it paid!) and many many more who quit in disgust at the corruption in Nigel Farage’s party, which he has operated over many years as a one man fiefdom with absolute control. A control which with the help of Douglas Denny and other ‘placemen’ he  enshrined in the corruption of the party constitution and rule book.
The media has also covered details of positions on MEP selection lists purchased by candidates in some detail previously!
Nigel Farage’s mask – the affable chappy in the pub act is clearly slipping
FARAGE, Nigel  104one can hear him already either blaming everyone else and accepting no responsibility for the actions of the party he has controlled, in every aspect, since Alan Sked left in disgust, or taking a leaf out of the book of his chums in the BNP, who are I note now openly backing him as do the EDL and other extremists, racists and the self serving!
He is more than likely to try to claim this is just a Government smear or the establishment trying to damage the party because, he will claim, it is doing so well.
This is of course just the dishonest spin of politics, as one can tell by even a glance at the facts and a small amount of research of the many key people in Ukip that Farage has fallen out with and just how implacable are their enemies who their dishonesty, corruption and offensive behaviour has done so much to earn.

Ukip ‘massaging’ selection process

Ukip’s selection process has been manipulated to allow the leadership to install favoured candidates, it has been claimed.

Leaked emails reveal a raft of concerns about the way the system in Nigel Farage’s party has been operated, including suggestions it has been “massaged by an internal clique to suit pre-determined outcomes”.

Psychometric tests, interviews and assessments were used by the party to weed out potential problem candidates ahead of the campaign for the May’s elections to the European parliament.

Ukip’s leadership manipulated the party’s selection process, it is claimed

According to emails seen by The Times, Andrew Moncrieff, a member of the party’s governing committee, claimed it had turned into “another classic Ukip behind closed doors selection”.

He wrote last year: “There is the question of whether the final scores were massaged by an internal clique to suit pre-determined outcomes.

“What started out as an attempt to produce a transparent, equitable system has turned into another classic Ukip behind closed doors selection.”

Mr Moncrieff asked why “paid party lackeys have done surprisingly well” and raised the prospect of the involvement of “Nigel’s henchmen”.

Ukip deputy chairman Neil Hamilton claimed the list of candidates contained “manifest absurdities” in a private email, according to the newspaper.

“As you can imagine, I’m not pleased with the MEP selection process,” Mr Hamilton wrote. “Yet again, things have not been thought through properly and badly executed.”

In one email exchange, Will Gilpin, the party’s former chief executive, wrote: “When I saw the (MEP selection) list I concluded that the party doesn’t really want to change, that the same sycophancy will be the driving force.”

Mr Moncrieff and Mr Hamilton did not make the party’s shortlist for the European elections.

Douglas Denny, who was selected in an open hustings to be the Portsmouth South parliamentary candidate but was later dropped by the leadership, accused the party of being “immoral, undemocratic and deeply corrupt”, according to The Times.

Ukip said that its selection systems were fair and insisted Mr Farage had “no hand” in the process.

A spokesman said: “The results were not manipulated, and Nigel Farage had no hand whatsoever in the selection process, finding out the assessment results only at the NEC at which they were unveiled.

“The fairness of the process was, in fact, tested in court. The regional lists were not altered, except in Scotland where several candidates resigned, or where one or two candidates resigned in other regions.

“The process was not designed to ensure that anybody specific did not make the shortlist; it was designed, using external consultants, to ensure that comparatively unsuitable people did not make the shortlist, and worked well in that respect.”

.
The Times in splendid isolation behind its pay wall has worked up the story with further details and would seem to have sourced much of the information via Alexi talking with the embittered scoundrel and imaginitive fantasist Douglas Denny, who is slowly spilling ther beans as his revenge for being demoted from being one of Nigel Farage’s more corrupt fixers!
Whether Alexi will manage to gain access to the hard evidence that will put Farage in prison, as boasted of by Denny, before Denny has his collar felt for colluding in criminal activity and failing to supply the facts with the evidence to the rightfull authorities is a moot question!

Ukip ‘fixing’ selection of candidates, emails claim

Ukip has manipulated the selection of prospective parliamentary candidates and is run by Nigel Farage as an “undemocratic” cabal, according to claims in a leaked cache of documents seen by The Times.

 

More than a dozen activists previously loyal to the Eurosceptic party have resigned over perceived efforts by Mr Farage and his allies to remove long-serving Ukip members from standing as MPs and MEPs in winnable seats.

 

As Mr Farage attempts to broaden Ukip’s appeal and to capitalise on its recent successes, some of his most longstanding foot-soldiers have accused the party of ignoring its own rules on selection procedures to the benefit of favoured candidates.

 

Neil Hamilton, now Ukip’s deputy chairman, warned in a private email that its list of MEP candidates for May’s European elections contained “manifest absurdities”.

 

“As you can imagine, I’m not pleased with the MEP selection process,” Mr Hamilton wrote. “Yet again, things have not been thought through properly and badly executed.”

 

In another leaked email, Will Gilpin, Ukip’s former chief executive, wrote: “When I saw the [MEP selection] list I concluded that the party doesn’t really want to change, that the same sycophancy will be the driving force.”

 

Mr Farage has gained support by pitching Ukip as an “anti-establishment” party seeking to shake up the old boys’ club in Westminster. Internal documents reveal, though, that senior figures questioned whether party leaders had tailored interview questions to discriminate against certain MEP candidates or had altered some candidates’ ratings to suit their own preferences.

 

Instead of allowing local branches to choose candidates for the European elections in May this year, Ukip required potential MEPs to undergo psychometric testing and a series of formal interviews and assessments. They were given a rating out of 100 based on their performance and placed on a shortlist that was voted on by every party member.

 

“There is the question of whether the final scores were ‘massaged’ by an internal clique to suit pre-determined outcomes,” Andrew Moncrieff, who remains on Ukip’s governing committee, wrote last year. “What started out as an attempt to produce a transparent, equitable system has turned into another classic Ukip ‘behind closed doors’ selection.”

 

Last night, a party spokesman said: “What we see are a series of claims by disappointed candidates. The system was fair and rigorous, and the quality of candidates continues to improve. As Ukip grows there are those who have been around a long time who feel that by dint of long service they are entitled to jobs and roles. The opposite is true, as today there is far greater competition. This can only be a good thing for the party and the country as a whole.”

 

Steve Crowther, the party chairman, had to reassure the party’s national executive committee last year that Mr Farage had “never at any stage given me even the slightest indication of who should and should not be on the list. Not once.”

 

Mr Moncrieff, who like Mr Hamilton did not make the European shortlist, questioned the involvement of “Nigel’s henchmen” in the process and asked why “paid party lackeys have done surprisingly well”. He suggested that a likely reason was “that it suits the party hierarchy to get people paid by the party elected as MEPs so they can be paid for by the EU”.

 

Two Ukip insiders have suggested that at least one candidate’s scores may have been downgraded.

 

“The candidate got his results [from the firm which carried out tests o/n behalf of Ukip],” one source said. “They told him he was one of the highest. His scores were higher than his position on the list, that was for sure.”

 

The insider said that members of the party’s governing committee were not shown the candidates’ scores and were simply presented with a ranked list of 60 candidates at the same time as it was published to members.

 

David Gale, Ukip’s former candidate for the police and crime commissioner role in Derbyshire, resigned last year after suggesting that one party official had justified the omission of an MEP candidate on the basis that “all the members would vote for him and we can’t have that”. Ukip strongly denied the claims at the time.

 

Rifts in the party over selection look set to continue into next year. Douglas Denny, a former Farage loyalist who joined Ukip in 1999, accused the party of being “immoral, undemocratic and deeply corrupt” after he was deselected as the party’s parliamentary candidate for Portsmouth South.

 

Mr Denny was selected 18 months ago after winning an open hustings but was dropped by Ukip’s leadership after it asserted the right to change candidates in so-called “key seats”. In a resignation note he said that Ukip had “demonstrated conclusively that they are willing to manipulate the MP candidates’ selection process . . . and have changed the rules recently to allow this to be done. Those choosing will be under the shadow of Nigel Farage.”

 

Andrew MacDowell, Portsmouth’s chairman, also resigned from the party in protest. Roger Bird, a Ukip member, told a local newspaper that Mr Denny’s deselection was a “routine event”.

 

More recently, the entire local party branch in South Hereford voted to dissolve itself in support of the prospective parliamentary candidate, Kip Waistell, who resigned after a Ukip MEP allegedly threatened to have him “deselected”.

 

Mr Waistell claimed in his resignation letter that “there are those within Ukip who have sought from day one to manipulate people against each other in this constituency”. Ukip’s response was that a “lacklustre” Mr Waistell “jumped before he was pushed”.

 

Last year, about 200 Ukip members paid £500 each to enter the process to become an MEP candidate in the European elections. Some 77 shortlisted names paid a further £360 for screening tests, bringing the party more than £125,000 in income.

 

Mr Crowther told NEC members in an email that the selection process was “calculated to be self-liquidating”. However, Ukip’s 2013 accounts listed the costs of MEP selection as £32,671, suggesting it made a profit of more than £95,000.

 

Caroline Gent, a Ukip councillor, wrote to the party’s NEC last year to express her “total dismay” after candidates she considered to be superior were passed over. “The whole thing stinks,” she said. “I thought UKIP were supposed to be honest.”

Hi,
reading my way around the blogs and papers as regular ports of call I found the article below of particular resonance and believe you will find it a worthwhile read, wherein I incline to agree with both the main thrust of the article and the detail.
Though I must say I do feel that both Cameron and the author are over estimating the likely threat of Ukip holding and serious level of power even as a balnce at Westminster.
Although it is possible that Farage’s party could get as many as 10 seats in the Commons it is very unlikely and a more probable outcome will be none or just one or two, which at this stage does not include a seat for the showman Farage, who has not made any serious appearance in his chosen seat of Thanet for 3 months and when last there appearing on a panel it seems he got bored and lefty early for more pressing matters:

It is of course not unreasonable to assume he merely left to indulge himself as that is how he is most frequently portrayed by his own press office who know him best:

FARAGE, Nigel 103 + Victoria Ayling, Jo Bateman, Alexandra Swann, Sanya-Jeet Thandi

FULLER, Annabelle 11

The threat of Nigel Farage’s party

FARAGE, Nigel 94 ORCHESTRATING A DEFECTION 01

Is not in the next parliament but how they will disrupt the election where they are likely to take more votes from the incumbent governing party than the opposition leading to the calamitous possibility of Ed Milliband and Ed Balls in Downing Street with a minority Government propped up by the self serving SNP – a situation from which Britain may well never recover which would lock us into The EU until its inevitable collapse.

Also be minded that the SNP have 6 MPs in the present Government, a number Nigel Farage’s antics can only aspire to, and they have proved to be a total irrelevance at Westminster and it has been their home territory in Scotland where they have proved so damaging to Scotland, the Scots and the Union.

Sadly, like the SNP, Ukip has only an ability to do damage as it rakes through the gutter of politics aided by a self serving claque and the failures of society – pandering, as it does, to any form of populism however unpleasant, just to gain places on the gravy train when clearly they have no real interest in any issue other than their own income stream as they so clearly damage the honest desire of a huge tranche of the British electorate who seek to overturn our membership of the EU’s political engineering, with a new relationship in association with the EU as an economic common market rather than vassals of the new political Empirate.

I am firmly of the belief that the responsible and honourable way forward for these United Kingdoms has been laid out in detail HERE and HERE

However for some further thoughts, as it pertains to Cameron and the future of the Tory Party:

Saturday, 29 November 2014

The EU Game Cameron Plays

It is a truth universally acknowledged that when it comes to all matters EU, Cameron – the cast iron Prime Minister – is not to be trusted.

Yet he is also a man under political pressure not only from his own party but what he perceives as the UKIP threat for his general election chances. This is evident with his 2017 referendum promise which was made under duress while he had previously been anxious to avoid one at all costs.

So as we enter the final straight leading up to May 2015 we had a much-hyped speech on immigration yesterday. Its purpose not only to try to win the election but form the basis of winning an EU referendum in 2017.

In his speech we had the typical Cameron flourishes which were a rehash of his “commitments” over the Lisbon Treaty. With Lisbon he was repeatedly asked what would happen if it was ratified by all member states before he came to power. “We won’t let matters rest there” was his response, which as we all know, letting matters rest there was precisely what he did. A U-turn that almost certainly cost him the 2010 election.

Yesterday we had a variation of the same theme.

If our concerns fall on deaf ears and we cannot put our relationship with the EU on a better footing, then of course I rule nothing out.

Cameron repeated the “I rule nothing out” during the questions and answers session which followed his speech. Cameron hinting he would consider exit but not actually specifying it and we think it’s fair to assume that he won’t.

However the more interesting point concerned how Cameron was going to attempt to wriggle himself out of the hole which he has very firmly plonked himself in, namely that any reforms to satisfy eurosceptics needs treaty change and that can’t be done in the two years he proposed, if at all.

Cameron acknowledged during the Q&A session following his speech that his whole package required treaty change (my transcript):

Guardian: Patrick Wintour from the Guardian. You’ve cited Open Europe in your speech. Open Europe’s figures show that even if you’re on the minimum wage and you lose your tax credits a Pole or a Bulgarian will still have a financial incentive to come to the UK. Why are you sure that these measures will repel people from coming to the UK and secondly does this require Treaty change in your mind

Cameron: The answer to the second question is yes. These changes taken together they will require some Treaty changes. There’s a debate in Europe about exactly which bits of legislation which bits of the Treaty you’ll need to change but there’s no doubt this package as a whole will require some Treaty change. And I’m confident we can negotiate that.

Such arguments have been made often on the internet so it’s refreshing to see Cameron finally and publicly coming to the same conclusion. It’s also interesting that his numerous references to Open Europe effectively outs it as the europhile organistion that it is and that its own purpose is to keep the UK in the EU.

So…how to remove himself from a hole? Well we get a very clear indication of how he is attempting to do it from the superb analysis by Richard North of Cameron’s speech:

What the Prime Minister has done is narrow down the “reform” spectrum to cover one subject, and one subject only – immigration. To be more specific, it has been narrowed down to freedom of movement.

This has a number of positives for Cameron. By linking the freedom of movement to the issue of benefits, has made Cameron try to look somewhat tougher on both. Then by concentrating largely on immigration he’s turning his fire on UKIP.

With UKIP exiting the EU arena and going for the anti-immigrant vote as its sole purpose, topped off by an all round aggressive undertone that by Farage’s admission alienates half the electorate, it’s an understandable strategy from Cameron. It’s not the definite “ins” or the definite “outs” which matter, it’s the more sensitive “don’t knows”, “couldn’t care less”, and “could be persuaded either way” votes which win a referendum.

Thus by proposing what “appears” to be more a moderate sensible solutions to a concerned electorate rather than one of a more robust and alienating policy of repatriation (nevermind confusion) it would leave UKIP with nowhere else to go. It’s a similar scenario to countries such as Cuba whose economy used to rely mainly on one export- sugar. Any failure for whatever reason in the product and you’re buggered.

Another positive for Cameron is that there are mechanisms within EU membership which are “already possible without treaty change, or even additional EU legislation“. Those which do require treaty change conveniently can be achieved via Article 48 without the need for an IGC (Intergovernmental Conference):

…Article 48 – which deals with treaty change – also allows for a “simplified procedure”. Potentially, this would allow the procedure to be completed on a rainy afternoon in Brussels, perhaps on the margins of a European Council. There is, though, a small condition. The changes permissible are confined to Part Three of the Treaty of the Functioning of the European Union (TFEU) which, just as it happens, include freedom of movement. Against all the odds, therefore, Cameron could pull off a quickie treaty and come home in triumph, waving a piece of paper.

What we can see here therefore is Cameron relying on the rather misleadingly named “self-amending” parts of the Lisbon Treaty. He will attempt to return from ‘negotiations’ claiming he’s reformed the EU via Article 48, in this Cameron is attempting to do “a Chamberlain“. It’s as transparent as it’s dishonest.

However there are also some significant negatives with Cameron’s strategy. The hurdles for Cameron are not over. Article 48 is limited to what it can and can’t do and it cannot just change the Treaty of the Functioning of the European Union (TFEU) on a whim as and when, despite some of the eurosceptic rhetoric.

While Article 48 by-passes the need for a complex full-blown EU treaty and an IGC, any amendments still require the UK Parliament’s permission (along with the other 27 member states):

The amendments shall enter into force after being ratified by all the Member States in accordance with their respective constitutional requirements.

And under Article 48.7 we can see an implicit approval clause

Any initiative taken by the European Council on the basis of the first or the second subparagraph shall be notified to the national Parliaments. If a national Parliament makes known its opposition within six months of the date of such notification, the decision referred to in the first or the second subparagraph shall not be adopted. In the absence of opposition, the European Council may adopt the decision. 

In short it means Parliament always agrees to amendments unless it specifically objects within a certain time period. Therefore as we can see from Article 48 the key point is that Parliament still has a say in any potential amendments to the Lisbon Treaty.

Thus we could be in an interesting position where Cameron’s much fabled “piece of paper” is rejected by Parliament. Realistically this is unlikely. With all main parties supporting EU membership, the likelihood is Parliament will support it, but with lots of pantomime – Labour and the Lib Dems complaining it didn’t go far enough. Here would be a repeat of ERM membership – all parties supported it, for example Labour as represented by a future Chancellor known as Gordon Brown in 1990 although their criticisim was that membership didn’t go far enough:

We needed an investment Budget to deal with the problems of training in industry, a Budget that would pave the way for negotiations to enter the European monetary system [ERM], a Budget that would do something about the problems that industry now faces, with investment flat and falling away.

While permission from the UK parliament maybe assured, Cameron also requires unanimity within the European Council as this Parliamentary document makes clear in its conclusions; “…any Treaty revision by means of simplified procedures, and any changes to decision procedures by means of passerelles, will be subject to veto by the Government in the European Council or Council of Ministers.”

Thus initially Cameron has to have the approval of the other 27 member states, via the European Council and then via their own respective individual parliaments as well. Here we can probably expect likely objections to Cameron’s proposal to limit immigration to come from countries such as Poland or Romania both of which have a veto (a proper one unlike a phantom one).

Another difficulty for Cameron is, and one that has always been present, if the UK requests too much then it leads to other countries demanding concessions as well. And has always been the way through the horse trading (and consensus) which typifies EU politics the UK will give up more than it achieves.

So it is more than likely that Cameron’s package will be whittled down to non committal “declarations”, “protocols” and “technicalities”. All accompanied by theatre, marching bands and cheerleaders…but no substance. Wilson’s “New Zealand butter” writ large. All helpfully promoted by our europhile media.

Encouragingly, and somewhat revealingly, while Cameron acknowledged Norway was a part of the single market he did not specifically mention during his speech that it was “governed by fax” which he has been prone to do in the past. This is possibly a new development. And so we wonder if Witterings from Witney’s meeting with Cameron in August on this and other matters (coupled with Owen Paterson’s recent speech) had a far more reaching resonance than we might have fully appreciated. Certainly Cameron has not used the phrase since. Instead he noted:

Those who argue that Norway or Switzerland offer a better model for Britain ignore one crucial fact: they have each had to sign up to the principle of freedom of movement in order to access the single market and both countries actually have far higher per capita immigration than the UK.

Which seems to suggest the Prime Minister knows full well (or has been informed by one of his constituents) that we can have single market access without being members of the EU, thus removing ourselves from the political union baggage which he claims he wants to do. It appears that we are beginning to establish the Norway option within the public debate.

Rather incoherently he then argues that EEA membership is not an acceptable option because it has to sign up to the principle of freedom of movement, but at the same time argues that within the EU and the single market he can negotiate restrictions. A claim that becomes even more absurd when the EEA agreement, under Articles 112-3, allows greater scope to place restrictions on immigration.

And further danger emerges for Cameron that by narrowing his reforms down to one issue he risks alienating those who wish “further and deeper reforms” such as big business represented by the likes of the CBI or members of his own side. It’s also a tacit admission from the Prime Minister that he has somewhat painted himself into a corner – he has nowhere else to go either.

With this in mind we increasingly wonder if Cameron has simply just changed the hooks on which he has impaled himself and in this he is entirely beatable.

  1. Being that 2017 in mental terms is now ‘the near future’ it’s reasonable to theorise beyond the Referendum in the case that the contrived terms are sufficient to convince the UK electorate to endorse continued membership.

    Even by voting to remain in, the contradictions and inadequacies of the EU will remain, and the institutions and justifications behind them will continue to decay. Just by voting to stay in won’t make the EU any more coherent or workable – as far as I’m concerned, it will still fall apart in chaos. Those observers who actually know what they’re talking about will highlight that EU membership is still the ultimate resort of the politically insane and the logic to that is to continue the campaign to withdraw.

    I’m sure Cameron thinks he’s being jolly clever by evading the points at hand. After an ‘In’ result, the anti-EU campaign will therefore continue, business as usual.

  2. Agreed…the EU isn’t finished in terms of its final destination so it is a moving target. This means that issue cannot remain settled while the EU keeps on integrating, especially when we consider the “referendum lock”.

    We can see another example with the Scottish referendum which has failed to silence the debate

    http://www.heraldscotland.com/politics/scottish-politics/give-us-a-new-referendum-by-2024-say-two-thirds-of-scots.25747131

     

     
     
  3. Sorry – should really declare identities under ‘Anonymous’ – Douglas Carter as previous post.

    I can’t blame the Scots for taking the opportunistic route – it was a literal insanity freelancing Gordon Brown to change the terms of the referendum half-way through voting – the people sending in a postal vote in advance of Brown’s intervention were voting in a Referendum which no longer existed on the final day. Some observers noted at the time there was no evidence his panicked reaction had any influence on the eventual outcome. Scots Nationalists are entitled to draw exactly the opposite conclusion since an intervention is made quite specifically to influence an outcome.

    I get no self-awareness from the Cameron\Brown\Murphy axis (if you take my point there) that the fault that the Nats’ campaign has not been stalled is entirely down to their own stupidity immediately in front of the finish line.

    That ought to be a lesson for the custodians of the EU Referendum – the whole thing needs to be crystal-clear well in advance of the poll itself – and changing the terms of the debate half way through the Campaign will simply guarantee they settle nothing on a permanent basis.

  5. Thank you for the mention and link.

    To think that I may have ‘educated’ David Cameron, or made him change his mind – I wish I could be that famous! 🙂

    Cameron’s basic error in all this is that he forgot an old adage: when in hole stop digging.

    Reply

  6. You’ve no need to be famous if you’re the power behind the throne 🙂

    On a serious note, it’s obviously hard to quantify influential impact, but it seems to me to be more than coincidence that Cameron has refrained from specifying the “Norway fax” meme ever since.

    In addition he is clearly in league with Open Europe who have ‘tightened’ up their rhetoric on Norway particularly after a press complaint from this blog…

    My observation thus is that your meeting in August had a significant impact.

    And agreed completely on digging holes.

     

     
     
  7. On a notional academic point –

    ‘Cameron has refrained from specifying the “Norway fax” meme’

    …if he has indeed accepted that the myth that Norway has no influence, would it not be the case that any representative of a Government led by him would also need to be slapped down if they themselves continued to make that erroneous claim?

    For example, imagine if his own Deputy Prime Minister carried on using the claim – you’d think Cameron would want to bring him in for a re-briefing, wouldn’t you?

     

     
     
  8. Hi,

    I think not, Cameron has clearly lost control over the lies, distortions and misrepresentations Clegg is now using in the run up to the General Election, as he desperately fights for the life of his party which has been so conclusively trashed by his leadership and the incompetence and dishonesty of his MPs and MEPs.

    We all saw what Clegg’s legacy was in the EU election and we can expect the same whipeout in the General Election as his voters return to their natyural homes as either Tory or Labour.

    Norway’s position has been misrepresented consistently by the main parties and also by the racist claims of Ukip in relation to immigration, where not being in the EU but with the benefit of EEA membership has left Norway and for that matter Switzerland with around twice the levels of immigration that Britain has experienced, despite our Commonwealth affiliations!

    Facts and due dilligence have never been the forte of Ukip and Clegg & Farage would both seem to be willing to make any claim for publicity and self aggrandisement.
