Hi,
FARAGE, Nigel 94 ORCHESTRATING A DEFECTION 01Nigel Farage has for over 15 years personally hand picked his leadership team, rigging and orchestrating internal elections and placements; fulsome in the praise of those he selected, clearly in the hope that he could derive personal gain from the placements he made.
 
These are the very people he condemns as ‘Dregs and Rejects’ as soon as they see the light and realise his self serving and self enriching corruption and dishonesty’, those who see through his willful self aggrandizement in the adulation of the ill informed and largely dispossessed – the very same underbelly of society which Adolf Hitler and the Nazi Party built their rise to power on and to which Alex Salmond turned when he tried to build his destruction of these United Kingdoms, ‘The Dregs and Rejects’ they had gathered around them in efforts to enhance their positions, who like Hindenberg and many others were vilified when no longer ofuse’.

THE NIGEL FARAGE SHOW: A 360 degree Panorama of cloak and daggers

cigarageRegardless of the evident bias in last night’s BBC documentary on Farage, the reporter’s assessment of the UKip leader was entirely justified by the evidence.

The gap between human expectation and eventual outcome produces one of two things: humour or tragedy. Personally, I find the hopes people have for Nigel Farage and UKip hysterically funny – at times, even difficult to understand. But there are growing signs (they’ve been growing for the best part of five years now) that those expecting any sort of functional radicalism are tragically wide of the mark. Last night’s 30-minute BBC Panorama demolition of Mr Farage summed up his real being with painful accuracy.

The programme produced nothing those of us who are on Farage’s case didn’t know already; and for all its clinical study of UKip’s bizarre history, that it had an agenda towards the Left the came out pretty much in every observation and conclusion. For these reasons alone, it will be rejected out of hand by the UKippers as an unpleasant mélange of Establishment vengeance and sour grapes. But ultimately, any programme throwing a cap at some villain’s head will only succeed if the cap fits. And I’m afraid Nigel Farage’s head zoomed towards the cap with every attempt to interview him.

The main trouble with the UKip leader is that he is barrage balloon of a target for anyone who’s even half awake. For when it comes to the acid Slog test – listen not to what they say, but watch instead how they behave – our Nige falls at every fence. The dimensions of evidence for the case against St Nigel the Redeemer could be summed up as his crude bluster, controlling nature, devious personality, doubted honesty, and tendency to use the means in order to disguise the ends. But ultimately, the programme established one thing beyond reasonable doubt: he is a man hiding in a cloak full of daggers.

The best filmic part of the Panorama episode was without question the juxtaposition of early speeches praising his appointees, followed by later remarks of gutter nastiness. It’s not especially dignified to refer to former colleagues as “the dregs of the rejects”, but given he both chose and then heaped plaudits upon them at first, it isn’t very smart either. I’ve spoken with people over the years who are anything but the dregs of anything, but they all say the same thing: become a threat to Farage’s leadership, and you’re dead meat in very short order.

In this and other areas, various historical events demonstrated the essentially devious nature of the man’s character. He clearly promised the Beeb an interview, and then hid away until they got bored….and made this programme. Again, not very smart. Having started off wading about in Devon floodwaters, he became evasive the minute people began asking which way he had voted, as an MEP, on the issue. The fact is, he didn’t turn up to vote; and his ‘principled’ assertion that UKip doesn’t vote because it doesn’t accept the Parliament’s legality is cant. The Party votes on several issues there – but to get oneself elected with the sole intention of doing nothing is a complete abrogation of the democratic foundation of representation.

As Ukip’s support grows and the General Election gets closer, the man at the top of the UKip heap is already toning down his anti-Camerlot rhetoric, saying he be prepared “to prop up David Cameron” after May 2015, but the price would be an EU in/out referendum by July. So we hold the referendum, and vote ourselves out: what then? He has no intention of propping up Dave: he is vitriolic about the PM in private, and his sole intention the minute it becomes possible is to have him replaced. It’s not hard to see what sort of approach we’re going to get after that.

In the middle of the half-hour slot, however, doubts were raised about Nigel Farage’s financial honesty. In that context, interviewing his former colleagues was entirely justified, as they presented compelling Treasury evidence that the Leader was taking the lion’s share of UKip funds for his own political ends. Another assailant who pointed out that some £120,000 had been collected – but only £18,000 had finally appeared – left not just a bad taste in the mouth: it suggested that said assassin knew he could provide evidence to show this. He had no fear of being sued….and neither did the BBC.

To that, one has to add how Nige has been gaily tweeting over recent weeks about all these fat donations he’s getting from obscure rich people of whom one has never heard. He is a keen supporter of the existing, utterly corrupt, system of raising Party funds, as a result of which Ed Miliband must listen to dreary Trade Union syntax ad nauseam, and the Conservatives continue to preside over a “justice” system that has let Newscorp off almost entirely, absolved bankers from even trial let alone prison, and covered yet more of our growing land in houses thanks to a bribe from the construction industry….after which, the Chancellor offered up a blatant bonus for the same sector – Help to Buy – at almost entirely the taxpayers’ risk.

This inevitably takes one back to Nigel Farage’s profession, and what he thinks about the City and its regulation. The short answer is, he loves the City and he doesn’t want any regulation: “The banking collapse was caused, more than anything, by bad government policy and the total failure of bad regulation, rather than by greed,” he told an interviewer a few years ago. Tell that to the shareholders in the Midlothian, the SME victims of RBS…once you’ve picked yourself up off the floor. For Farage, it’s as if Libor, gold manipulation, Diamond’s dubious deals and Freddie Goodwin’s rapacious mishandling of the ABN Amro takeover had never happened. If Mr Farage doesn’t call taking a £340,000 bonus while losing taxpayers’ money, it’s hard to know what he would attach the definition to.

Even when talking (accurately) about what a disaster the euro has been, UKip’s führer is careful to keep his keepers away from the limelight. Talking about Greece in 2012, he remarked, “Greece isn’t a democracy now, it’s run through a troika – three foreign officials that fly into Athens airport and tell the Greeks what they can and can’t do.”

“Three foreign officials” is a gross and deliberate distortion of of the Troika’s identity. They were the IMF (a thinly-veiled agent of the State Department and Wall Street), the bondholders (carpetbaggers working for the same Mafia) and the European Central Bank – which wound up with most of the haircuts, stumped up by EU taxpayers. What Greece wound up with was a debt it can never repay: thanks to the irresponsible lending policies (aka greed) of the members of a community of which Nigel Farage is a proud and unapologetic member. His suggestion that Greece’s ignominy is down to three obscure bureaucrats is nothing more than obtuse bollocks.

What we have to remember about Farage is that he is radical along one narrow dimension: the European Union, and its potential to nobble the City of London’s power base. It is the single belief we share. But in all other dimensions of radicalism at this blog, he is as reactionary and dismissive of ordinary people as a Michael Fallon or a Jeremy Hunt.

Nigel Farage is not opposed at all to the dominance of Bourses in the raising of capital. It’s his own heartland, why would he be? He doesn’t want financial regulation, and shares the same arch insouciance as Dan Hannan on the subject: “The regulators we have are hopeless, so let’s have no regulation at all”. He is an avowed globalist and – as we’ve seen on two occasions recently – quick to morph into Fido Farage whenever the gargoyle Murdoch snaps his grubby fingers. Last Sunday, he declared “…there is a role for the business people in the NHS”. He approves of private health cover. He is not a mutualist.

If the Surge for Nige continues, then the UKip boss will indeed change the face of Britain: he will make it an even uglier stream of neoliberal vomit than it is now. I urge all of you who veer in his direction, or merely that of the nonentities with whom his ragbag army is replete: think again. This man will, if given half a chance, make things much worse.

In short, he will be revealed as the effluent in the room.

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

is what gives the remaining 10% a bad name!  

.

 A Protest at the prospect of exposure by the investigative journalism commissioned by Panorama seems As Plausible As Nigel Farage’s all too Frequent ‘Denials’ be it of corruption, theft, fraud, bullying, racism, philandering, abusing his position, lies and sadly considerably more!

Hi,

that the BBC has commissioned a Panorama programme with a wide ranging brief to expose both the roots and rise to prominence of UKip is hardly a secret as they have been interviewing the informed for sever5al montjhs and gathering facts for the programme.

One can hardly be surprised that a major investigative programme has taken the rise of UKip as a protest party is of course just cause for investigation – that of is what such programmes provide, rather than the endless gossip and soap operas we are usually regailed with. That the programme has tended to focus on Nigel Farage will be no surprise as realistically UKip has not a single individual of conseque4nce besides Farage and it is he who dictates, and has dictated, almost all policy – often invented and announced on the hoof!

It is also worth noting his insecurity which has led to witch hunt after witch hunt driving out honest and decent folk who would have formed the core of the party and provided the party with some gravitas, as they might have been a challenge to corruption and dishonesty of Farage and his clique as they rewarded the odious claque that found that sycophancy and ineptitude were the best route to the gravy train in Farage’s party.

You will note Farage has opted for attack as the best form of defence thus exposing himself to the obvious question ‘just what has he to hide’ and he has written to Panorama’s boss Elizabeth Byrne refusing to cooperate with the programme because he claims investigating UKip and himself is an act of bias and arrogantly demanding that his letter is read out in full in any programme that is broadcast.

Farage being well aware that there are many stories of bullying, abuse and corruption to hide, many of which have appeared in the media over the years varying from the lies he has told to get elected and his dishonesty in paying his wife with tax payers’ money designed to help fund expenses not enrich his family to the dishonesty of this ex Bank employee claiming he was unaware his Isle of Man account had off shore benefits in avoiding British tax and pretending he did not use the account despite the clear record of having deposited £250,000 to his account!

Although Farage has gone to great lengths to try to ensure his name is not attached to such behaviour, recently going so far as to ensure his wife continues to receive her tax funded income by dodging EU regulations that forbids elected individuals from employing their spouses and partners by having his goffer Ray Finch employ her just as he had employed Finch for some time. Such ‘loyalty’ from his long term staff member may well explain how such an individual got to become an MEP on UKip’s list of Farage supporters.

That the independent makers of the programme have ranged widely over UKip’s finances in particular is hardly surprising sfter so many years in which UKip has consistently obfuscated its monetary dealings, despite the money being from the public purse and donations from its members and supporters in a manner which has seemed consistently deliberate and has given rise to the widespread belief that possibly sums running to 7 figures have been purloined.

It is also little wonder that when there seems a consistent pattern of behaviour carried out again and again by apparently different individuals associated with Farage who so clearly controls and dominates his party obviously leads to the belief that it is he who is behind manipulating such events.

Little wonder that Farage does not wish to be interviewed for the programme as that would put him in a position of risk where he might well perjure himself on camera exposing his own dishonesty.

FARAGE, Nigel 92 Jolly RACIST 01

Naturally Farage will use the implausible claim of all extremists and so often by criminals that ‘the establishment (watever that might be) is picking on me’. Such claims are as thin and implausible as the claims that Farage was not employing various of his sexual partners – a denial with all the plausibility of the philanderer Bill Clinton!

Below you will find a copy of the somewhat desperate letter Farage has authorised but as usual avoiding it being seen to bear his signature and thus being deniable if it backfires! A common UKip ploy!

 

Farage’s alleged letter:

“Dear Elizabeth,

RE: Panorama Rehash of Times Campaign Against UKIP

“Thank you for your letter, the contents of which I have given careful consideration to and quite frankly are a rehash of a series of overtly hostile articles published in the Times during the run up to the May 2014 European Elections in which I hope you will note that over 4.3 million people voted for UKIP and we are now the biggest British party in the European Parliament.

“Having established that your line of questioning is in no way original or “fresh to the market”, it is apparent from the tenor of your questions and the approach being taken by you that you are adopting a specific agenda which clearly conflicts with the well accepted BBC principles that a programme for public consumption should be fair and balanced.

“Regretfully, the concept of Panorama as judge and jury on (last century and ten-year-old) allegations which have been well dealt with by me in the past does not fulfill the BBC’s charter obligations, or for that matter, its role.

“Accordingly, I can give you no further assistance and should point out to you that should you wish to proceed with this programme, I expect you to read out, without interruption, in full and without censorship, the entire contents of this letter.

“As you well know, our party is now in receipt of at least two new supporters for every ex-Conservative supporter and I wonder if it is your Labour contacts that have interested you in this project, which has previously been utilised by a panicking Conservative Party.

“A Panorama programme aimed at explaining the workings of the EU, as your Charter obliges you to do, would be far more beneficial to the British people than a tedious BBC hatchet job at the behest of your pro-EU contacts.

“Finally, if you fail to read out and place on screen this letter in any programme you choose to broadcast, this will be brought to the attention of the BBC governors and of course OFCOM.

“This letter is my final word on the matter so please do not continue the correspondence with me.”

I note UKip claims the programme, which it has not seen and is as yet unfinished and unedited, is a rehash of articles alleged to be hostile in The Times yet at no stage does he claim the articles to be factually inaccurate! Compilations of past news are the meat and drink of such programmes as Panorama which gathers together facts, often over many years, to provide a sound basis for its investigative style of journalism.
 
The claim the programme is to act as Judge and Jury is obviously specious as it has clearly offered Farage the opportunity to answerr their questions – a right to reply – which has been rejected leaving judgement to the viewers as do such programmes.
 
I do not recal Farage objecting to the odious and grovelling lack of facts or balance in the similar programme presented by Channel 4 , in the run up to the EU elections that so clearly acted for UKip as a dustbin into which protesters could cast their votes – a far cry from the likely outcome of next years General Election where UKip are likely to be little more than spoilers for the more consequential election, an election in which they may well deprive Britain of its Referendum so hard fought for by Nikki Sinclaire and others and grudgingly promised by thwe Tory Party if they are re-elected.
 
Nor were many complaints apparent from Farage or his party in the run up to the election when Patrick O’Flynn was seemingly buying his position as lead candidate in the Eastern Region with his uncritical and more than somewhat biased articles in the Express, without having the integrity to resign or at very least explain the reason for his bias to the readers!
 
This would seem from my contacts to be a compilation that shows the style of Farage and his party, rather than specific calumny.
