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

.
UKIP Supporters’ like KrisH, Mick McGough, Independent UKIP, Douglas Denny, Skeptyk, Gerard Batten and others show that Cyber Bullying & Lies, cheating and dishonesty are extremely damaging to UKIP!

It is clear that on a greatly rising tide of EUroScepticism UKIP’s failure is exacerbated by the behaviour of its aspirant supporters (cowards, cheats, liars, fraudsters and cyber bullies) and association with racism, anti homosexuality, holocaust denial, anti judaism, advocacy of violence and the dregs of EUropean politics!

The lack of leadership ability, strategy or valid tactics is a reflection of the clear lack of professionalism and disinterest in its membership or Country beyond self enrichment of a small clique and agrandisement of their claque!

Hi,

I note the cyber cowards and liars are up to speed with their jobs!

Whether individuals like Independent UKIP, Skeptyk, Gothmog, KrisH and the like are merely cowards who know they are telling lies and are ashamed or are rewarded for their dishonesty and unpleasant manner, so damaging to UKIP and the EUroRealist cause and therefore having prostituted their ethics is a matter of conjecture but endlessly having them repeat their lies and feeble efforts as cyber bullies hidden behind the cowardly cloak of anonymity without being denounced by UKIP has done the party immense harm.

As a member ‘Trusted’ on the UKIP controlled squalid little Forum of Antyhony Butcher’s Independent UKIP currently leads the charge!

I’m I see now I’ve rattled I-UKIP’s cage, he’s responded (and of course, I can’t see it). So predictable.

Despite being a compulsive liar Mr Lance-Watkins maintains he always tells the truth in everything he says. Despite obdurate rudeness over many months you maintain you’ve never been rude. Is he grooming you to take over? You’re demonstrating increasingly familiar traits.

Clearly a dishonest attempt to mislead people as neither Independent UKIP nor any of the other maggots feeding on the corruption in UKIP, and too ashamed to use their own names when abusing people, has EVER shown a single solitary consequential inaccuracy in ANY of my many 1,000s of postings!

I am also unaware of them ever being able to materially fault those posting as Junius. I am aware they haven’t a clue who posting facts as Junius but I am aware that there is a strong possibility UKIP may find itself in Court YET AGAIN were they to interfere in someone’s employment based on their various false guesses!

I note (thanks) that Niall warry has read my blog, as do UKIP leadership and their puppets and muppets, desperately trying to find a factual inaccuracy – at which they have clearly and totally failed to date. Much as they may wish to disagree with the clearly stated opinions I also voice!

I disagree. 

A rather foolish statement as anyone will note as Niall Warry said absolutely nothing with which he could disagree but he is so programmed to be offensive that he has made rather a fool of himself. Clearly he could not disagree with my comment as clearly he was not in conversation with me – probably too much of a coward or advised by his puppet masters that he was on far too weak ground to risk direct contact!
May I thank Steve Morson for his support in rebutting this foolish little chappie and refuting what the serial liar Independent UKIP said originally (for the umpteenth time without a shred of evidence of EVER showing a material fact posted by me to be materially inaccurate), he just keeps repeating his lines, presumably for his UKIP funded rewards – a bit like the odious liar, cheat and criminally inclined public nuisance Mick McGough!
Anyway – my thanks to Steve Morson and Niall Warry for speaking out at the risk of being lied about and abused by the dwindling army of useful idiots cyber bullying for UKIP.

Well, of course, I only have knowledge of GL-W thanks to 2 UKIP members – 1 an MEP – and I can only say, from personal experience, that he is quite fastidious about accuracy.

Piffle!

There are a number of articles that have been found to lack in integrity and accuracy. Articles with purposive intention; personal opinion and values from an individual with an axe to grind.

Yet one notes that in the many 1,000s of postings I have made on my blogs, other blogs and web sites – Forums and eMails UKIP have been unable to identify a single solitary factual error of any material consequence.

Yes I have an axe to grind – does not everyone of any ability to reason? One of those axes is that I can not stand corruption amongst those I misguidedly supported. I find use of fake identities to abuse and berate private individuals in ad hominem attacks beneath contempt, I am disgusted by betrayal by those I aided and voted for, I have nothing but contempt for UKIP leadership which has NOTHING to publicly curb the cyber bullying and clear dishonesty of some of its leadership and many of its supporters, presumably in aspirant hope of reward.

I have utter contempt for fraud, liars, cheats and those who seek self enrichment and self agrandisement willingly involved in racism, religious bigotry, anti homosexuality, anti judaism and espousing violence as a primary plank of political achievement or those willing to associate with such behaviour.

I have NEVER denied that I am an individual of VERY clear and openly stated opinions and values and for the likes of the creepy succubi, puppets and inccubi of UKIP leadership to berate me for having clearly held values and opinions makes them look the fools they clearly prove to be!

FOR THE RECORD:
Yet again I repeat I have NEVER, on any issue in any place or at any time, have I deliberately lied or set out to mislead anyone on any issue.

Further in all my many postings on the internet I have ALWAYS shown clearly who I am and have always made my contact details readily available.

Further I have ALWAYS strenuously endeavoured to provide accurate FACTS and clear opinions.

Further I have ALWAYS made it clear that if ANYONE believes I have made an error of FACT and have contacted me in a polite and adult manner using an identified and contactable legal persona I have been all too willing to correct any fact which they can substantiate to be untrue.

To date NEVER has any material FACT of consequence been shown to be false, untrue or deliberately misleading.

IF you disagree and can show reason for any material FACT to be corrected do contact me and any required and substantiated substantive correction will be made, acknowledged and if need be apologised for. I will NOT merely make a clandestine adjustment or removal of such an error!

Hi,

do be minded that those I quote below were BOTH Branch Chairmen of UKIP Branches and also Niall Warry was for a time Chairman of UKIP Wales.

Both, after numerous elections on behalf of UKIP as candidates AND organisers eventually quit UKIP in disgust!

Instead of getting their policies right, media message “on song” with the public and MSM, an appealing website (the harshest criticism I hear comes from active members), and then an electoral strategy which doesn’t involve blanket coverage in a general election, then they may be rewarded with a seat or two in a general election (maybe not even the next one!)

That disgraceful brainwashing and propaganda like this garbage that Clegg has vomited goes unchallenged by UKIP is a true obscenity of our age. This has been spouted a few times in BBC1 Question Time, until Peter Hitchens tore Sarah Teather a new one confronting her to name a single source that could support this nonsense. She couldn’t – of course – and was utterly humiliated. In fact, Civitas have analysed that 3 million jobs in the EU depend on the UK’s membership.

But at the moment, as when I left it, the only thing that matters is the Euro elections in 2014, and jockeying for position and backstabbing / throatcutting for those started over a year ago. Believe it or not! Local / county elections can remain uncontested, the only thing that matters is the gravy train club…. I mean…. European parliament elections. Generally speaking.

 Niall Warry commented:

What an accurate analysis from an ex-insider, who like myself, saw first hand what EUKIP is now all about.

The whole sordid (which in this context I mean ‘selfish and grasping’) EUKIP machine is now about one thing, which is the election of MEPs onto the EU gravy train, who as a prerequisite must all sycophantically worship at the feet of and ‘Big up’ Nigel Farage.

It is for these reasons I keep banging on about EUKIP in the possible hope something might just improve but increasingly I have realised that this is a pretty forlorn hope.

Even so I still maintain it is essential that those of us who rumbled EUKIP a long time ago owe it to the country to keep pointing out the unpalatable truth about Nigel’s EUKIP.

To clarify the source of the lies from Nick Clegg and others it is worth noting that the figure of ‘3 Million jobs being dependent on the EU’ was from a report commissioned by The Labour Party and when Blair and others quoted it dishonestly out of context the director of The IPPR who produced the report was most outspoken and stated that ‘…never had he seen facts so dishonestly misquoted out of context’ and he resigned!

Firstly the report made it clear that the jobs were dependent on The EU NOT on membership of The EU and it went on to make it very clear that leaving The EU would not only cause a probable INCREASE in jobs within 6 months but that our trader defecit with The EU would most probably greatly improve.

Further The EU Commission made it VERY clear that when we leave the EU there would be absolutely no consideration of any type of trade sanctions against our goods, services or peoples.

#0510* – UKIP Excrescence David Bannerman Finds His Natural Home

The UKIP Excrescence David Bannerman Finds His Natural Home with  the Tories!
A move we predicted before he betrayed them last time!

.

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

Hi,

how could anyone refute a word Richard North has said in this article on his blog.:

The Guardian is exulting in the defection of UKIP MEP David Campbell-Bannerman to the Tories. A former UKIP deputy leader, he came third in the contest that returned Nigel Farage to the party leadership last year.

The Tory Boy Blog is naturally happy about this particular bit of treachery but, predictably, Witterings from Witney is not exactly over the moon. However, doubtless out of a sense of loyalty, he forebears to inform us that Bannerman is another of those seedy Farage protégés.

As an MEP, the man was the beneficiary of the rigged selection process in UKIP which the current leader manages so well. But at any distance, Bannerman comes over as a wrong-un, and the betrayal has long been expected.

He would not be the first Tory plant in the party, and despite standing against Farage, owes his position in the party to the current leader. The defection, therefore, speaks volumes for Farage’s judgement, and is yet another example of why the party fails to prosper.

 That said the odious little man Bannerman has tried to justify his vile behaviour so completely in character and predicted from even before he joined UKIP, by myself and others such as Richard North and Junius on our blogs.

Almost every point that David Bannerman has put in his sordid self justification was first published long ago as facts on this blog and endorsed by Richard North, Junius and others – there would seem to be nothing new we haven’t published – perhaps he has been keeping notes of this blog and the facts we have provided, for when he betrayed UKIP members and the electorate as we stated he would.

David Bannerman’s behaviour, predictable and predicted as it was, is utterly beneath contempt. His self serving appologia is a study in duplicity on the one hand conveniently overlooking the irrefutable fact that he failed not just in every election he ever stood in of significance in The Tories save a brief period of irrelevancy as a councillor and as a bag carrier many years ago and much forgotten for a minister!

David Bannerman’s revolting grovelling shows just what a worm he is – with his whole world is at fault except me philosophy and critical whinging – this time about UKIP, that it hadn’t done this that or the other – well he WAS the Chairman, The Deputy Leader and made an MEP candidate and was happy to accept the corruption and lies that put him there.

Having had a role in Office of one sort or another it ill becomes the odious little failure of a man to complain nothing was done about so much when it was his job to make the changes – OK we know he is useless.

Some may even remember when UKIP’s corrupt Press Office wrote such fulsome praise of the turncoat when he betrayed The Tories by defecting – this was posted on the internet on the UKIP web site – in less than 10 minutes using the simplest of searches I showed and published that his CV as presented was a pack of lies.

Not long after he invented himself as the nephew of the Liberal PM Sir Henry Campbell-Bannerman – within minutes this was proven to be another pack of lies – to this day he has failed to provide his birth certificate to even establish his claimed parents are his actual parents and the record in The India Book where he claimed to be born is not commensurate with his claimed parentage!

This man is a fraud – and so I published PRIOR to his being brought into UKIP by Nigel Farage, whose judgement of people has, as everybody knows, has been proven to be utterly incompetent.

David Bannerman is absolutely no meaningful relation of Sir Henry Campbell-Bannerman even by affectation!
Sir Henry Campbell-Bannerman (1836–1908) was born at Kelvinside House in Glasgow, Scotland as Henry Campbell, the second son and youngest of the six children born to Sir James Campbell of Stracathro (1790–1876) and his wife Janet Bannerman (d. 1873). 
In 1871 Henry Campbell became Henry Campbell-Bannerman, the addition of the surname Bannerman being a requirement of the will of a distant relation, Henry Bannerman, from whom he inherited the estate of Hunton Court in Kent.

Sir Henry Campbell-Bannerman’s only real action of aclaim was to die without progeny in office as PM in 10 Downing Street the first PM ever to do so.

David Bannerman’s abilities do not match his claimed CV, nor his claimed identity the facts.

Many will remember that David Bannerman, as a protege of Nigel Farage, was never elected to a position in UKIP but conived, cheated and lied to be PLACED!

We also understand that it is unlikely that The Tories did due dilligence with any more rigor than UKIP or they would, we understand, have noted that David Bannerman has been proven and denounced as a low life, liar, cheat and thief  We understand that David Bannerman is still under investigation for fraud, false accounting and theft from the public whilst in a position of trust!

I for one will NOT be publishing his deeply unpleasant, offensive and dishonest attempt to justify his dishonourable and self seeking behaviour as a political prostitute as circulated on 24-May-2011 – plenty are stupid enough to have read it, failed to know enough of the truth to know the little man is an untrustworthy liar and placed copies of the toe curlingly embarrassing self adulation and admission of his own weak and venal ineptitude in any area of politics save betrayal and groveling!

David Bannerman is no more revolting and duplicitous now than when we warned you of him 7 years ago!

Then again, he will clearly fit into The Tories of toaday where ANY deal with ANY duplicitous and corrupt toe rag to keep in power is expedient albeit duplicitous, dishonest and sordid – already they have betrayed their promises to the electorate that got them elected – the promise of an In/Out referendum to liberate these United Kingdoms from the Evil Union.

David Bannerman has all the integrity and reliability one expects from a Tory – whence – as we predicted, he has returned.

Let us leave the last word to Steve Morson a UKIP Branch Chairman past PPC, and former UKIP Regional Committee Member:

David,

There are a few sentences in your memo with which I entirely agree. In particular, how the party goes about building a power base, to get Westminster MPs elected.

But that doesn’t detract from the fact that what you have done is an egregious act of treachery and betrayal. We are UKIP. Don’t you think the lion-hearted members of this wonderful party have suffered enough of that from the LibLabCon over 40 years?

We met for the first time at the Leadership hustings in Birmingham last autumn. You were personable and mildly persuasive…and a reasonably credible choice for Leader. If you’re reading this, we chatted about Leamington Spa amid discussing big-ticket policy items, by the doorway at the end of meeting. I thought we had the best policy profile in the party’s history, which you chaired – under Nigel’s leadership – and I told you this.

But if you think that the current Conservative party is Eurosceptic, then I’m sorry to say that your political naiveté – if not illiteracy – is of no loss to us whatsoever. The Conservative party, along with Labour and the Liberal Democrats, are referred to by me as “the traitor parties” – have been for years. It was an epithet that I refrained from using for the purposes of the general election; I’ve gone back to it since. I don’t imply, of course that all members of those parties are traitors – just those who have wilfully and consciously supported the outrageous acts of treason by signing away tranches of our sovereignty. Whether they read the treaties or not (not, in the case of the party you’ve just joined. I remember one Tory telling an interviewer that she was sitting in a Commons tea-room, behind Douglas Hurd, then Foreign Secretary, discussing the Maastricht Treaty which he had just signed. Not noticing her, he stood up and said to his colleagues: “Well, now I’ve signed it, I’d better go and read it!”). John Major famously described Euro-sceptics as “Defeatists who make your flesh creep.” At the declaration of the West Midlands Regional results of the European parliamentary elections in June 2009, Malcolm Harbour, Conservative MEP – in response to Mike Nattrass’ victory speech said: “A vote for the three main parties is a vote to stay in the European Union!”

If that were not bad enough, the man whose leadership you so admire will not even acknowledge, much less honour the emphatic desire of many British people for a referendum on our EU membership. While we’re giving money to the European Financial Stability Mechanism to bail out failed Eurozone countries, we’re ordering aircraft carriers with no aircraft; we can’t afford them. This is the mindset of the outfit you’ve signed up to. Clearly you’re happy with this. What would be the point of me continuing? If you think that David Cameron’s premiership and this government’s course is so right, who is going to persuade you otherwise?

I see this not as a matter of political ideology, merely personal financial expediency. Gold, it would seem, is your God, and I refer you to the conclusion of Oliver Cromwell’s speech to the “rump” parliament in 1653 to indicate the outcome I – and I suspect many members – would personally desire. As I’m an atheist, I’ll happily accept “UKIP” as a substitute for “God” in this context.

All I ask is that you seriously reflect on the outrage that you have committed, by asking UKIP activists to support and campaign for you, and the voters of the East of England to trust you with their ballot. Only to turn on them in this unconscionable act of treachery.

If you have any trace of honour in you, I ask you to resign your seat in the European parliament forthwith, so that the will of that region’s electorate can be transferred to someone with whom they trust when it comes to the EU – a UKIP member.

#0432* – a UKIP ROUNDUP In Haste

#0432* – a UKIP ROUNDUP In Haste

Clean EUkip up NOW make UKIP electable!

The corruption of EUkip’s leadership, 
their anti UKIP claque in POWER & the NEC 
is what gives the remaining 10% a bad name!
.
a UKIP ROUNDUP In Haste!

I haven’t even read my ‘e’Mails today! But please bear with me as I had my first dose of heavy duty ‘cocktail’ chemotherapy and a wonderfull aray of pills today and I’ve run out of time!

IF you want to follow the details of the treatment over the last 13 years and follow as I beat the obscene disease yet again just scan down the RIGHT SIDEBAR and CLICK ON the Pic. of the ‘WARM HANDS’ being washed!

You might wish to join with filth like Mick McGough who dragged CIB, UKIP, The TFA and others into the gutter he inhabits with his published glee at a supporter of UKIP The CIB and The TFA who has spent many years opposing Britain’s membership of The EU – A sad reflection of what thes organisations making money as they ride on the gravy train consider TRUE BRITISH VALUES!

We note Anthony Butcher hosts McGough’s filth at:
http://www.democracyforum.co.uk/ukip/90831-collection-anti-ukip-greg.html

Hi,

a busy day so please accept the haste.

I received this which may interest you

Date: (REDACTED)
From: (REDACTED)
Subject: UKIP smears
To: johnwest81@hotmail.com

Mr West, A friendly warning. Peter Reeve and others have contacted several members of UKIP about you. They have been advised to contact the radio station where you work with allegations of racism. ‘The worse the better so he loses his job’ were the words used. That they consider this acceptable behaviour disgusts me. They have lost my support forthwith.(REDACTED)

I am aware of the author and have checked the veracity to the best of my ability and it ties in with filth published by another of UKIP’s parasites Skeptyk and also endless childish attacks from the serial liar Mick McGough.

No doubt incresing numbers of UKIP genuine supporters not looking to feed their bank accounts or egos at the expense of their Country will be realising that not only is Mick McGough a proven liar but also willing to sell out his own associates for personal gain and Independent  UKIP and the sad failure Skeptyk who have both, for all their lies and posturing just like Stuart Parr and others been made to look complete idiots and clearly dishonest.

Endlessly these maggots that have sought to exploit the EU and UKIP for personal gain find they are proved liars over and over. Endlessly they claim that my Blog publishes untruths yet in the many 1,000s of postings I have made they have utterly failed to identify a single consequential fact that I have published that is materially untrue.

However as they leap up and down in the gutter the ordure they coat themselves with their unpleasant, dishonest and childish behaviour has shown ever more what odious cowards they are.

As with Mick McGough and Douglas Denny their lies over several years are beneath contempt.

Let us consider THE FACTS provided by the mailing I have published above.

I gather not a single letter of complaint regarding John West’s broadcasts has been recived in the 7 or 8 months he has hosted and also co-hosted two breakfast shows a week at ICR. We then have the proof positive that incitement to defame and lie was published by Mick McGough, Skeptyk, Peter Reeve and others and  a tiny weenie flurry of near identiacal libelous, defamatory and dishonest lies arrive at ICR and when the chppie running the station writes to each complainant not one has the intelligence or morality to write and apologise.

I note Skeptyk also lied about John West requesting the removal of a copyright picture from his blog. Perhaps Skeptyk might care to substantiated this lie as he claims he was written to he can very easily publish John West’s letter.But of course he can’t as John West has never sent such a letter and yet again Skeptyk is proven to be a liar.

I have a feeling that within the month UKIP are likely to realise just how big a mistake they have made in inciting this vile underhand and cowardly attack on John West has been.

Hi,

here is a new resource for EUroSceptics and EUroRealists at:
 

  This new site was launched on the 20-Apr-2011 and would seem to have much going for it as it is aimed at assisting EUroSceptics, EUroRealists and activists alike – seemingly with a help line.


I wish the site well and hope it lives up to my personal hopes.


On the subject of Resource Sites – do not forget the various links in the Right Sidebar of this blog and many of my other blogs.

Do not forget to take advantage of the LINKS in The TABS at the head of the current blog daily.

I understand a New Resource that may well become of much note and more embarrassment to The EU is scheduled to be launched during this coming weekend – but more of that then!

here is another all to typical mailing – this time regarding Mid Suffolk.

Subject: RE: UKIP Mid Suffolk

Dear Sir,

I vote UKIP and was disappointed that their were was no candidate for my area! Conservative, Liberal, Labour and Green Party……UKIP could have used this election, an opportunity missed.

To keep and increase the support of the UKIP possible voters lets hear a bit more on issues in the media by some of the elected members who are not shy or able to put across the views written

Thank You
(REDACTED)

The danger the correspondent faces is that if people are NOT selected by a democratic process unfortunately one ends up with individuals being elected based upon lies and dishonesty and using Conservative oriented and sponsored so called PR agencies like Athena-PR to gain advantage – interestingly a fact that only came to light when this blog published the fact that Nigel Farage employed a professional agency to ensure his election.

You may remember his previous placement as leader was also founded on lies and dishonesty that emmanated from the Party’s own returning officer – who was sacked from the job for his corruption and by the lies of UKIP salaried Press Officers!

UKIP internal elections and selection processes have similar levels of integrity to those of Godfrey Bloom’s favourite baboon!!! CLICK HERE & HERE

It is also valid to ask oneself if it is better to field no candidate rather than make the party look crass by fielding a shy and retiring school girl taking her ‘A’ levels who will not be interviewed nor provide a photograph or statement when seeking office of Mayor of Leicester as is Regine Anderson, on behalf of UKIP CLICK HERE

You may also be amused by the posting on and about Anthony Butcher’s Forum and the pond life that regulary post their lies there as enumerated earlier:

Consignment of geriatric shoemenders

As I say, hilarity. Arising from hypocrisy and crass stupidity.

‘Allowing smoking in a pub not a real crime’? Would it be a crime if it wasn’t Nick Hogan? What constitutes a crime in that case, or is it a matter of who commits it?

It’s always worth coming on here for a smile. Anyway, here’s today’s mental exercises for the sagacious law professors, ethicists and elevated equestrians pitching in here(answer ALL questions):

Law: civil and criminal

1) Is entering premises and intentionally stealing documents from a someone a crime? (OK, a hint: section 9 of the Theft Act 1968) (10 points)

2) If a tiny part of the contents of said documents (e.g. a contract) are then posted on a website, is that a criminal or civil offence? Explain your choice. (No more hints – you’ve had one!) (20 points)

3) If person A sends person B a private e-mail, containing a viciously untrue allegation, then promulgates it to all and sundry within an organisation with a view to destroying person B’s reputation by nature of the allegation, what offence has been committed? (20 points)

Ethics

4) Person A sends someone Private Messages in an internet forum, then uses the forum to complain that they have been discussing / publishing the contents of those messages with other people. Person B sends Person A Private Messages, which another party, Person C then hints strongly to B the contents of the messages he sent to A. What kind of character is Person A? (Assume – correctly – that B does NOT disclose the contents of PM’s, e-mails or other discretions.) (25 points)

5) If Person A from Q.4, operates the website mentioned in Q.2, is there a criminality issue / moral conflict? (25 points and a Gold star for the best answer!)

Ends

I won’t enter the discussion of the merits of the Denby / Bloom situations, I think they’re both overblown teacup storms, indicative of deeply sinister, cliquey croneyism and hysterical mischief-making, both as destructive as each other.

For me, I cannot stop thinking about my (fairly lengthy) chat at the leadership hustings last autumn, where I was regaled with stories of planned “professionalisation” of a certain entity. Seems like years ago.

Steve

It is particularly interesting to note that the author of this is a Branch Chairman still and has been a dedicated supporter who has in the past stood, at his own expense, in elections for UKIP yet seemingly Bromsgrove is now only fielding a single paper candidate- One must assume as a resuult of watching the lies and antics of UKIP leadership towards their local UKIP elected MEPs Nikki Sinclaire and Mike Nattrass both of whom have endeavoured to give of their best to the local party and also local issues.

That allegations of theft were made against John Ison and that even the media did not believe him, when he was put up to his malicious betrayal of trust, is now a matter of widespread knowledge, even made fun of on the floor of The EU pretend parliament!

Whether the Police take action against him is a matter for The CPS but it is clear to me that absolutely no credence has been given to the odious little man by either the press, the police or OLAF.


My appologies to Steve Morson for having posted his public domain posting onto this blog without his express permission, but he was either out or not taking phone calls this evening.


Steve Morson knows from past experience I always seek to obtain either the author’s permission or two or more reliable sources for private texts, also where possible I try to contact individuals to ensure they will stand by their claims made in the public domain.

You may also in passing care to note that it seems that Nigel Farage has employed yet anothre Conservative who is not opposed to EU membership and withdrawal from The EU but rather CLEARLY STATES that he is in favour of membership of The EU and seeks implausible changes.

No doubt these new staff are to makke it easier for Farage to betray the party and with his sycophants and self seekers like Mick McGough, Stuart Agnew, William Dartmouth, David Bannerman, Marta Andreasen and others seek to dump the principles and values of UKIP in favour of Pan EU Party Allegiances with appeasers rather than act with integrity as withdrawalists.  

Those of course who are not aiming to dump UKIP alltogether and seek new homes in The Conservative Party or center right Spanish Politics!

For more details you may find this LINK of help!
It is interesting to note that UKIP Northern Ireland are seemingly either going native before they even start or making up policy on the hoof CLICK HERE where he conflates CAP & CFP in some confussion and though he talks of withdrawal he has far more to say about changing The EU. Is this also to seek inclusion in a Pan EU Political Group?

Another brief pointer for UKIP having been found Guilty on various counts relative to Nikki Sinclaire and with no sign of UKIP doing anything constructive other than madly stall to try to keep their behaviour out of the media until AFTER the elections – A point Douglas Denny may wish to raise when next he has the courage to challenge Nigel Farage on matters of integrity, probity, transparency and so very much more!

Default Disgusting! Gerard (not) the (only) subject of smear campaign

As sources of amusement go, I find this forum one of the most reliable, and this thread an exemplar.
I view it occasionally, as it often leaves me in despair, and contribute rarely. Anyway, here goes.
Skeptyk by name and nature indeed. Given the world we inhabit Skeppy, I’m rather surprised that a decent cove such as yourself (genuine flattery) should think a smear e-mail against Gerard as ‘non-existent’ (feigned scepticism), but then go on to ask for it’s contents to be PM’d to you as proof, while hiding behind a pseudonym (hypocrisy and irony )

Well it does seem as if he has the measure of that revolting gathering of self serving, self enriching filth! Skeptyk, Independent UKIP, Gothmog (William Shaw), Baron von Lottsov (more stupid than venal!), Gawain Towler, Mark Croucher, KrisH (Kris Henderson), Annabelle Fuller, Bannerman, Agnew, Reeve, Nuttall, Batten, Kris or KS (Kris Seunarine), Andreasen, Bloom and the rest of the low lifes beneath contempt seeking personal gain by the betrayal of principle and patriotism.

There is nothing to be gained in calling someone an “X sockpuppet” if you yourself are a “Y sockpuppet”. IMHO. It was interesting to see the usual coterie of ‘defenders’ doubted the existence of that infamous e-mail header posted on this very forum (4th March), and deleted in extreme haste. If it was fictitious (it wasn’t – it’s on Junius for the curious), why the panic? People on here seem to have their own interpretation of libel laws; another source of hilarity. I doubt that there’s more than a few members here who could actually afford a libel lawyer – for 1 day!
I’ve tired of the forum where the only way some people feel that they can “contribute to discussion” is behind a cloak of anonymity. There is genuinely no explanation for this other than moral cowardice.

Perhaps he overlooks the reasons besides moral cowardice – dishonesty, corruption, stupidity, self enrichment, malice, sycophancy for example!

I have been the victim of an extremely nasty and totally unnecessary smear campaign recently, but of course, as a lowly branch chairman, it is of no consequence to the masses.

There was however an effort to embroil this blog – just as with the unpleasant smear of Gerard Batten – the reason being obvious in that not only do most of the informed in UKIP read this blog with an astonishing degree of regularity but also it is read by several well connected members of the media on a regular basis.

What is most staggering is that there was no conceivable, rational need or purpose for it; what is most puzzling is “why” it was done.

As with most activity in UKIP I believbe that you will find it was in an effort to denigrate others to gain points in the race to get their snout into the trough on the gravy train as a sycophant of Nigel Farage’s.

That and – I suppose – the fact that its source is a member of the party’s disciplinary committee.

If the mutually shared belief is that the individual in question is John Ison perhaps it is worthy of note that it is widely understood that he was stained an almost permanent brown colour in his endeavours at Oldham to gain the colour yet unwilling to make any efforts for UKIP in his own region – It seems to have paid off, as he was seemingly rewarded with a position on UKIP’s risibly styled Disciplinary Committee!

A position allocated without even making formal application I am given to understand.

The choice of smear ‘type’ was also curious; it leaves one to ponder whether some of the more ‘unsavoury’ accusations made against the party have a foundation in truth.

Hence it always proves essential for me and also I understand for those posting on Junius, to check our facts with care – there are no shortage of liars, cheats and duplicitous bufoons on UKIP’s leadership team and amongst their parasites – the maggots feeding on the party they have all but destroyed!

I will yield more by PM for those prepared to reveal their true identity under solemn promise – I will give my WORD – of utter secrecy.
The biggest laugh of all came when the attempt to use Greg Lance-Watkins as the vehicle for the smears, blew up in their face badly – I almost lost control of my bladder .

Amusingly there is so much back biting and jokeying for position in UKIP’s upper echelons that often I will receive ‘inspired’ leaks from both sides trying to gain an advantage. Fortunately to date the level of general stupidity amongst UKIP leadership and the scum gathered around them has made it easy to spot the internal betrayals and attempts to set each other up – thus to date this blog has NEVER been duped into publishing a single solitary error or dishonesty of any significancve – but as many know we do check our facts.

Completely out-of-the-blue, I received a phone call several weeks ago from GL-W, seeking confirmation or denial of 3 stupid slurs, before posting an article attacking me, on his bog (sic).

All a part of ensuring that this blog – whatever name inadequates may childishly call it – ensures it maintains its track record of 100% Truth and accuracy.

When I trashed them, he decided not to post, as ‘…I am a stickler for facts…’ and my threats of legal action (if he went ahead) were treated with snorting derision.

The derision was not a challenge it was that he was being so stupid as to think I might deliberately publish anything dishonest.

Just as I have NEVER published a single solitary article comment or article, posting or eMail in any identity other than my own. Unlike the likes of Skeptyk, Independent UKIP and the like I have nothing to be ashamed of and many will be aware I have offered to attend any meeting to answer cross examination on any and all the facts I have presented on this and my many other blogs and postings.

They (the leak’s ultimate source – it was an e-mail originally sent only to me) ended up with their own dedicated weblog, courtesy of GL-W. With a remarkable level of detail and – more importantly – apparent accuracy, to say nothing of appropriately choice adjectives!

I presume the allusion is to CLICK HERE

I was told that the leak had distributed the contents of this 1-to-1 e-mail to a “…wide list of people…”. Hold on, does that constitute ‘libel’?
This ‘politics’ is a strange business!

The Mental Midget In His High Heels The Idiot Douglas DENNY!
He So Befouls UKIP with His Childish Inadequacy & Fanciful Dishonesty!

.

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

Clearly Douglas Denny is determined to damage UKIP with his idiocy and his constant dishonesty all of which people note is coming from a ffol on UKIP’s NEC of long standing – this of course more than somewhat accounts for the mess UKIP is clearly in with less than 30 elected seats out of 19.1/2 THOUSAND and mapping out at around 3.01% in National elections.

Is it surprising when such bare faced liars as Douglas Denny, Mick McGough and their ilk are on UKIP’s NEC!
Here is yet another performance of utter stupidity and implied dishonesty by Douglas Denny who can not even show the intelligence as to realise when someone who clearly leaves him standing intellectually in his wee Cuban heels trying to impress – Denny is so stupid he fails to even realise when he is being duped into making a fool of himself – a small step from the gutter in which he resides.

Douglas DENNY Retorts – Having clearly missed the point:

I see. So you are now denying a statement you made, passing off the statment to someone else, yet made using your name here on this site.

Not only is Denny too stupid to realise that Geoffrey is making a fool of him but he goes on to confirm he is a fool:

In other words you have lied. Lied either because you are not, or have not, been in the pay of MI5 and the first submission was a lie; or, the second submission that the statement was made by someone else is a lie; or, both are a lie.

DENNY takes the bait and hook line and sinker force feeds himself!

You were asked a direct question Geoffrey. You have chosen to answer with lies.

DENNY’S abject failure in his self absorbed ego to realise he is being ‘Wound Up’ is, even for a fool like Denny, astonishing as Geoffrey could not have made it more clear.

Now of that which I know about you – fairly down the list is that of lying directly to me to a direct question – that will now have to be re-assessed and placed top of the list.

Not content with BEING an idiot DENNY goes so far as to explain the idiocy and lack of intelligent common sense that puts him firmly in the idiot class!

——–

DENNY continues, long words not withstanding, to show himself for a fool and a liar.

We now the veracity and integrity of your submissions here: we shall have to treat everything you say from now on as if you are deliberately, duplicitously, lying through your back teeth.

Silly little chap DENNY – No Geoffrey was NOT telling lies he was showing you for a fool by the use of humour – I would imagine all will have noticed what a fool you really are by your failure to spot the obvious as laid out before you.

IT WAS A JOKE – DUMMY!

Some already think that of you I believe due to your squirming over your passing of information to the GLW/’Junius’ team. You seem to wish to confirm it.
DED.

Indeed poor sad little chap Douglas DENNY is he tried very hard to point score against Geoffrey claiming, as ever dishonestly, that Geoffrey had passed some form of confidential letter to both the Junius team and to me – when in fact I can happily attest he did not.
Try as they might the odious and cowardly Skeptyk, too ashamed to use their own names, squirmed and wriggled, lied and distorted to try to show Geoffrey in a poor light when clearly it is they together with Denny and others who so befoul UKIP’s public image, endlessly living down to expectation in public with their lies and squalid comments.
Firstly the letter was not confidential it was a begging letter sent out presumably widely – all that it showed was that Farage, despite his promises, has so damage UKIP that they have to beg for money in this unseemly manner.
Secondly – Geoffrey did NOT supply me with a copy of the circular.
Thirdly – Geoffrey did NOT supply the letter to The Junius Team but I did and it was the same letter.

This rather shows Skeptyk and Denny for the dishonest fools they are trying to make much of such a non event they were even then wrong on all counts. However the truth and these individuals are clearly all but strangers as they lie, distort and dissemble in a manner that shows just what depths UKIP leadership and its parasites will stoop to for their personal gain.

Despite the bluster and lies of Skeptyk, or for that matter Douglas Denny, Stuart Parr, Steve Morson and the like it will be noted that never ONCE have they managed to identify a single solitary consequential error in ANY of my 1,000s of postings nor a single lie yet they have been shown time and again to be liars without integrity, morality or basic human decency as they distort and invent lies and scenarios to TRY to defame me and others.

UKIP under its present leadership with its present parasites is unfit for purpose and a part of the problem with absolutely no part in the solution. They are rotten and dishonest, corrupt and incompetent to the core.

Steve Morson writes in complaint to Sir Micheal Lyons Chairman of The BBC Trust in some detail concerning BBC Bias & TV Licence Tax

.

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

.
Hi,

minded that Steve Morson was a UKip prospective parliamentary candidate for Bromsgrove

MORSON, Steve 01

where the disgraced Julie Kirkbride was MP (well one of the homes she claimed expenses for!) this complaint written to Sir Michael Lyons in his capacity as Chairman of The BBC Trust, covers many of our feelings regarding the debased, befouled and biased BBC!

I strongly advise those of you with an interest in the future well being of these United kingdoms read it to the end!

Sir Michael Lyons
Chairman
BBC Trust
Broadcasting House
London
W1A 1AA

29th August 2009

Dear Sir Michael,

With immediate effect, I am withholding my television licence fee, and as I intend to encourage many more people to do the same, I think it is rather important that you know why.

I realise that a single licence fee of £142.50 is a ‘drop in the ocean’ compared to the £3.36 billion annual income from this state-enforced licence tax, and a fraction of a percentage point of the obscene £141 million in loans from the European Investment Bank (EIB), but I feel that it will become a story in it’s own right. I have joined the Facebook group “10 Million for No TV Licence”, which at the time of writing, has 537,400 members.

I doubt that you will be surprised to learn that I am a member and prospective parliamentary candidate (PPC) of the U.K. Independence Party (UKIP). I intend to campaign within my party to introduce the proposition that our party adopts the abolition of the TV licence tax as policy in its Culture, Media and Sport portfolio.

My letters of complaint through the BBC’s normal channels, plus those of my friends and colleagues, have become an object lesson in futility, which is why several of us have taken this step. In many cases, the responses of the BBC are shared amongst the wider membership – more for ridicule than illumination – and are held as examples of anfractuous reasoning and needless digressions. Please note that I do not expect a point-by-point refutation of this letter, as some or all of the points will already have been inadequately answered by your Complaints Department. The request I am making is for a fundamental shift in the practice of political broadcasting, including conformity with legislation, guidelines and commissioned reports, and the basic concept of fairness.

My grievances

In my opinion, the BBC has, throughout both election periods stipulated below:

1)

Broken its covenant to “educate, inform and entertain” its audience. Virtually all of the output of all television channels has been aptly described by Peter Hitchens as “mental slurry”, and the BBC is as guilty as anyone of producing it

2)

Failed to provide adequate coverage or at least reflect the political views of people and interested parties in anything other than the three main political parties, i.e. Conservative, Labour and Liberal Democrat

3)

Treated the United Kingdom Independence Party as a single-issue, extremist party and never once asked them to explain or discuss their range of policies that have been in place for more than a year in the context of a serious discussion (I exclude the bromidic BBC 1 “Question Time” programme)

4)

Failed to take the concerns of many UKIP supporters over the accusations of unfair coverage in these election periods seriously

5)

Failed to follow its own “Editorial Guidelines (Politics and Public Policy) – Broadcasting during elections”, viz: “…news judgements at election time are made within a framework of democratic debate [your bold emphasis] which ensures that due weight is given to hearing the views and examining and challenging the policies of all parties. Significant minor parties should also receive some network coverage during the campaign.”

6)

By dint of points 2), 3) and 5), potentially and possibly interfered with, or at least attempted to affect, the outcome of two elections in contravention of its charter and UK laws

7)

Wilfully failed to observe Bridcut Principles 1 to 5 (listed in Appendix A), failed to provide Principle 8, and seemingly couldn’t care about 11 or 12.

8)

Underestimated the public need for radical change at the very heart of our political institutions, especially the House of Commons, by stifling all but mainstream opinion, and failed to reflect this view in a cross-party consensus

9)

Committed a breach of section 5.5. (and possibly others) of The Ofcom Broadcasting Code (Oct. 2008), viz:

“Due impartiality on matters of political or industrial controversy and matters relating to current public policy must be preserved on the part of any person providing a service (listed above). This may be achieved within a programme or over a series of programmes taken as a whole.”

10)

Continued it’s trashing of the image and reputation of our Royal family and its place in the affections of many British people and our state’s constitution, by persistent and unchallenged trivialisation, negative reporting and imagery, and denigration through BBC radio and TV “comedy” output. As a case in point, a ‘brand new comedy series’ on BBC Radio 4 on 21st August at 6:30 pm aimed at mocking the weeks headlines started in the first episode with a non-story from the Times turned into a ‘joke’ at the expense of Prince Edward, within two minutes of starting.

The straw that ‘broke the camels back’ for me was the by-election in Norwich North on 23rd July. I drove to Norwich to volunteer in Glenn Tingle’s campaign, and saw first hand the disgraceful media bias our candidate had to tolerate. This was only part of a profound and unsubtle anti-UKIP broadcasting policy by television and radio programming to deny a voice to a legitimate and respectable party – the fourth largest in UK politics, and second largest in European politics. The BBC actively promoted the Green Party as an alternative to the two main parties, without even mentioning UKIP on several occasions in its reportage.

4th June elections

In the approaching weeks to the June 4th County Council and European Parliament elections, I noticed the following transgressions:-

1.

Watching repeats of “Have I Got News For You” reminded me how, whenever UKIP is mentioned, it is merely for cheap ridicule and unfailingly we are represented by Robert Kilroy-Silk. The fact that he left the party in January 2005 doesn’t seem to trouble the programme makers or the BBC commissioning / editorial staff.

2.

On 8th May this year on Radio 4’s Today programme, after listening, I felt compelled to e-mail this complaint:-

This morning, Nigel Farage MEP was interviewed by James Naughtie. Throughout the interview, he constantly shuffled papers, and on my stereo, it sounded so close to the microphone that it almost drowned Mr. Farage out.

This is not the first time; far from it. He seems to make a habit of doing this when his vocal intonation betrays the fact that he feels dislike / derision for the subject of his interview.

Please ask him to desist.

The reply (typical of its kind) included this utter irrelevance:

James is an extremely experienced and well respected presenter…

A view not shared by me or the blogosphere apparently.

3.

In the 10:00 pm news on BBC 1 on or around 11th May, Nick Robinson –the BBC’s so-called Political Editor, was delivering a live piece to Huw Edwards in the studio from Westminster, about the MPs expenses scandal and its possible effects on the coming 4th June poll. He included this:-

…and when people are asked about how they might vote in the European elections, Labour is neck-and-neck at 19% with the U.K. Independence Party. A huge surge of support for them, that despite the fact that one of the MEPs they elected last time is currently in prison for being on benefit fraud [sic]. He was, I ought to say, expelled from the party.

This was clearly a reference to Ashley Mote, MEP. As many UKIP officials were tired of explaining even by then, Mote withheld vital information (a pending civil court case for housing benefit fraud) from the Party when he applied to us for candidature. This would have precluded him standing for any office in the party, much less a parliamentary seat. Ashley Mote was released from jail in November 2007 from his subsequent conviction, eighteen months before Mr. Robinson’s report. Nick Robinson was either wilfully and artfully propagandist, or woefully incompetent and outdated with his ‘facts’. In either case, is he a suitable journalist to hold the BBC’s most senior political reporting post, or was he merely ensuring that facts didn’t get in the way of a “good story”? Or obeying orders?

4.

In BBC1’s Question Time in May, a woman asked if the MP expenses scandal would give a boost to “….extremist parties like the BNP?” David Dimbleby asked her “By extremist, do you also mean UKIP?” Why? By whose criteria (apart from Dimbleby’s) is UKIP considered “extremist”?

5.

On 21st May edition of the same programme (from Salisbury), the normal complement of five ‘talking heads’ was bizarrely increased by the presence of Yasmin Alibi-Brown, the BBC’s favourite and ubiquitous rent-a-Leftie (and habitual interrupter), ensuring that Marta Andreasen’s contribution – as UKIP Treasurer – was kept to an absolute minimum.

6.

In Michael Ball’s Radio 2 programme on a Sunday morning before 4th June, Peter Riddell of The Times was the guest reviewer of the Sunday newspapers. I have admired Peter’s insights, analysis and writing for many years until, when discussing MPs expenses and the 4th June, he stated that ‘this will give a boost to “….extremist parties like the BNP and UKIP”…’

7.

On 3rd June, UKIP Leader Nigel Farage was interviewed by Emily Maitlis for BBC 2 Newsnight. It was shameful; hostile questioning is expected, but constant interruptions are not.

8.

On polling day – 4th June – there was virtually no coverage of the story behind multiple cases of an attempt at electoral fraud by councils up and down the country who issued ballot papers folded to obscure the UKIP box at the bottom of the paper. Nigel Farage threatened to demand a rerun of the European elections and demanded the resignation of Elections Minister Michael Wills because of fears that our party had lost votes as its name fell below the crease – machine formed in many cases – of the folded ballot paper. The Electoral Commission had to issue urgent advice to polling stations and returning officers to hand out unfolded ballot papers to voters. I heard nothing in the BBC news of this. The BNP claim that they picked up many votes this way that would otherwise have gone to us.

Post election

After 4th June elections, I noticed the following:

1.

In the BBC 1 Question Time programme on 11th June, UKIP was not mentioned once; not by the panel or the audience. For a programme that seeks to explore and discuss the week’s politics and current events, this is far more than extraordinary or coincidental. Presumably, this programme is recorded and then edited for broadcast, so only one of two scenarios is possible in this case; either a) no-one in that studio mentioned UKIP even once, or b) it was mentioned and then edited out. In the case of (a), this would be remarkable, as not only did UKIP poll second place in the European parliament elections, but were the only political party to increase their vote share on 2004 results. Surely someone would have raised this point? In addition, UKIP won several County Council seats, Labour no longer controlled a single county council in England and the Liberal Democrats reduced to one. Labour lost three quarters of their councillors in England and resulted with less than the Lib Dems. How could UKIP not have been mentioned?

2.

However, if point 1) seems odd, what is absolutely peculiar is that Question Time was followed – as usual – by “This Week”, but we fared no better. If there was a place for discussion and deep political analysis, it was here (I was a regular viewer). The only time UKIP was mentioned was by Diane Abbott MP, but it was dismissive and in passing. That Andrew Neil did not mention UKIP is just unfathomable!

3.

In the early hours of Monday 8th June as European ballot results were declared, Mike Nattrass MEP stated in his speech that he asked the BBC for a debate on the Lisbon Treaty with the Conservatives and other party representatives. Why was this cut from the edited highlights of his speech in the news?

4.

Nikki Sinclaire, who was elected as an MEP for the West Midlands, was invited on to BBC1’s The Politics Show of 14th June for the West Midlands and an interview by Sarah Falkland. Before this, on the national segment, Ken Clarke, Conservative MP was interviewed live about public spending, debt, the NHS and Royal Mail. Ms. Sinclaire was prevented from seeing any monitors in her time in the studio, so it is perhaps just as well that she wasn’t questioned on his responses to Jon Sopel’s questions.

5.

In an appallingly biased West Midlands segment on this programme, Susana Mendonça preceded an interview with “one of our regular commentators” – Prof. Mick Temple of Stafford University – with the fact that in the West Midlands, UKIP’s increase in vote share was the highest in the country. He said:

“I think UKIP have been very [his emphasis] lucky. Their performance has not been brilliant, they are themselves plagued by expenses scandals, and yet they picked up and extra seat in the West Midlands which quite frankly I don’t think they deserved! I think those Conservative voters who voted UKIP are going to come back to the Conservatives in a general election, but this is not a clear indication that the Conservatives will win the next general election; on the votes cast in the European and local elections, they’ll be lucky to scrape a working majority. That’s not good enough a year before an election.”

It is a political tenet of our age that many habitual voters of the three main parties vote UKIP in a European election because they trust us – almost more – than anyone else. This was mentioned to me, unprompted, by Conservatives at the county and European vote counts, even by Ms. Julie Kirkbride – my MP. It seems to be a revelation to Prof. Temple, who seems to be a professor of food science judging by these sour grapes and rotten tomatoes!

‘Deserved’? Why was no-one invited to offer a response to counter this ignorant nonsense, especially as Nikki Sinclaire MEP was sitting in the studio? If Mr. Temple had been on the campaign trail with UKIP activists in the region, he would have seen first-hand the enormous amount of hard work and personal investment made by ordinary people committed to bringing decent, honest change to British and European politics. It was rewarded in the vote share.

“A working majority”? Since the end of last year, polls have put the Conservatives at a minimum of 9%, and mostly this year in the 13 – 19% range, ahead of Labour. This by any measure would ensure a very healthy majority for the governing party.

Moreover, to which “expenses scandals” was he referring? Ashley Mote, as explained, was effectively nothing to do with UKIP, and Tom Wise is awaiting trial on such charges. Unless, like everyone else at the BBC and everyone they interview, he is presciently convinced of Mr. Wise’ guilt. Perhaps I’m alone in thinking it strange that I have never once heard mention on the BBC that the Conservative’s Chief Whip in the European parliament, Den Dover, was required to pay back £445,000 in “unaccountable expenditure”.

This same segment then went on to interview Michael Cashman, now the lone Labour MEP in the West Midlands. He said:

“UKIP as I said earlier, it’s a protest vote. They stand for one thing – pulling out. They were given an easy ride….the denunciation of all of the mainstream parties lifted UKIP and sadly, in other regions, gave oxygen and breath and support to the British National Party.”

More bilge. As I have pointed out in previous correspondence with your Complaints Department and on many weblog pages, if you starve UKIP of the oxygen of publicity, you may end up with some curious and undesirable election results. We were positively asphyxiated by the BBC, and lo and behold, Nick Griffin – BNP Leader – won an MEP seat in the North West.

(Every member of UKIP I have met detests the BNP as much as I, a fact of which I am immensely proud.) If UKIP had polled 17,000 more votes in that region, we would have taken that seat. I have heard people espouse the theory that effectively, the BBC actively campaigned for this BNP victory. Whatever anyone thinks of UKIP – propagandising and prejudices aside, we are nothing like the BNP; I speak as a three-year member. I also never tire of pointing out that in the 1980’s, the voices of Sinn Fein’s political leaders were dubbed by actors to – in theory – deny the IRA the ‘oxygen of publicity’. But at least their words got out.

Just as I thought this programme had cornered the market in ill-thought out nonsense and anti-UKIP propaganda with the previous two contributions, Susana Mendonça introduces an interview with Liz Lynne, Liberal Democrat MEP with this line:

“ …the fourth placed Liberal Democrats, who keep their one MEP in the region, warn that UKIP’s success is bad news for the Midlands.”

Liz Lynne MEP said:

“If you don’t get MEPs going in there to work, then they can’t stand up for their constituents so I hope they will change their mind. I hope they will engage with the whole process to make sure we have more jobs coming into this region, more funding coming into this region. That is what the job of an MEP is.

I don’t think Mike Nattrass MEP needs to be reminded of that, as he is the only person – anywhere – to tell us that in October last year, the EU parliament approved a €97 million subsidy for bullfighting (after we banned foxhunting), and a €305 million subsidy for growing some of the most carcinogenic tobacco known to man (after we banned smoking in public places). He also tells us of lost contracts due to EU Legislation (e.g. for British trucks that went to Austria instead of LDV in his constituency – sealing their fate) and exorbitant conformity on-costs, the chicanery of the EU Budget, the obscenity of the Common Agricultural Policy, a collapsing parliament roof (Strasbourg – which could have killed 300 people if the EU parliament was sitting), and police assaults on legitimate protestors. He also warned us that the British and French were attempting to set up an EU Navy – to the alarm of British admirals. UKIP’s MEPs carry out sterling work, making sure that the unsustainable lunacy of the European Project is exposed, while MEPs of other parties slavishly toe the line and spuriously defend our membership.

How exactly was Liz Lynne describing “bad news” for ‘the Midlands’? East and West? Why does she think that they will do no work? Judging by results, Mike Nattrass works far harder at being an MEP than the others from whom I‘ve heard nothing. Whatsoever. (By the way, in a recent survey of the most effective MEPs in the European Parliament conducted by the Taxpayers Alliance, a UKIP MEP was rated 7th of 783 in a league table of effectiveness, with seven Labour MEPs – including Michael Cashman – in the bottom ten. And yet here he was berating UKIP.

Later in the national segment, Ken Clarke was again interviewed, this time on the Irish referendum on the Lisbon Treaty. Again, this was unchallenged, even though Mr. Clarke is a passionate Europhile who is utterly opposed to any referendum by any government on any issue. This despite a poll on ConservativeHome weblog showing that 84% of Conservative party members want a British referendum on the Lisbon Treaty even if it is ratified by all member states.

In all, an utterly disgraceful programme.

Norwich North

In the campaign up to the Norwich North by-election of 23rd July, I noticed the following:

1)

Throughout BBC news coverage on TV and radio, several activists including myself, who had arrived from various parts of the country to help Glenn Tingle’s campaign, noticed that the only party mentioned other than the three main parties was the Green Party.

2)

On BBC 2 Newsnight on Wednesday 15th July in a segment centred in Norwich, interviews were conducted with the three main party candidates. This was followed by an interview with someone from Pitman Training in Norwich. Then, UKIP candidate Glenn Tingle was

given a few seconds, but in a resulting montage graphic of four squares, what was shown? Conservative, Labour, Liberal Democrat candidates… and a classroom at Pitman Training! We assumed they also had a candidate in the election!

3)

In the same programme, a BBC News East reporter went to a home for elderly people in Norwich, and interviewed four ladies. When he asked them who they would vote for, they said “Not the Conservatives or Labour!” (A moment’s silence). “The Greens?” asked the reporter! “Yes, the Greens. We think!” came the reply.

4)

Whose decision was it to exclude Glenn Tingle, UKIP candidate, from a televised hustings programme only days before the election?

5)

On the evening before my departure, I was told of the existence of a memorandum that was sent from senior BBC management in London to news chiefs at BBC East HQ in Norwich, to the effect that ‘the Green party were to be treated as the fourth party in the by-election coverage, and that UKIP was to be treated the same as the BNP’. Does (or did) such a memo exist, if so who originated this policy, who wrote it, to whom was it sent, who oversaw its compliance, and what do you intend to do about this gross breach of the BBC Charter? The bias we had seen in preceding days certainly seems to confirm its existence.

6)

In an web article entitled “Five key lessons from Norwich North” (http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/uk_politics/8167588.stm), BBC Chief Political Correspondent James Landale writes:

“Third, the anti-politics, anti-politician, expenses-fuelled vote did not coalesce around any particular party or candidate. The Greens, UKIP and the former diplomat Craig Murray picked up some expenses-driven protest votes but not enough to matter.”

Really? At 4,068 votes, this was UKIP’s strongest ever showing in a parliamentary election (which barely did credit to an excellent candidate), but less than 800 votes behind the Liberal Democrats. With fair media coverage, who knows what could have been achieved? The BBC’s much-touted and fancied Green Party came fifth. James Landale appears to reflect – accurately – the BBC view of the British political spectrum.

Bias

For the purpose of brevity, I’ve avoided traversing the minefield that is BBC radio “comedy”. It is an odd experience to hear an audience laughing when nothing funny had been said, but I am getting used to Marcus Brigstocke (and the 6:30pm Radio 4 slot) by now. I doubt I’ll ever get used to Sue Perkins who recently said: “UKIP. Tossers!” bizarrely out of context in a programme as unmemorable as it was un-entertaining.

In an article written for the Daily Telegraph on 24th July entitled “Anti-UKIP and pro-Green: the BBC at its most blatantly biased”, Daniel Hannan, a Conservative MEP wrote:

Throughout the campaign, it ran programmes with Conservative, Labour, LibDem and Green spokesmen…. But there was no basis to the claim that they were the fourth party, either nationally or locally. The last test of electoral feeling was June’s European election. The United Kingdom Independence Party won 13 seats and came second; the Greens won two seats and came fifth. In local elections on the same day, UKIP beat the Greens in most Norwich North wards.

He continued:

Newsnight, Look East and Radio 4 all chose to disregard UKIP and treat the Greens as the main story. Three days before the poll, the BBC’s Eastern region TV held a hustings meeting for four candidates: Conservative, Labour, LibDem and Green.

What was the result in the event? UKIP won 11.8 per cent of the vote ‐ comfortably ahead of the Greens and remarkably close to the LibDems (or “worryingly close” as I just heard a Radio 5 Live presenter put it).

One of the responses to Mr. Hannan’s blog (by ‘Patrick’) was this: On the Saturday before the Euro elections, Today ran a five minute attack on UKIP written by Mark Mardell, the BBC Europe editor. It was a total hatchet job with Mardell first telling us what the other parties in Brussels thought of UKIP (they did not like it) and then giving us his own opinion ‐ that UKIP were profoundly unserious golf club militants who had not been made prefects when they were at school.

I am not really a UKIP supporter, since I am rather to their left (although I did vote for them in protest after hearing that), but I made a formal complaint which was just brushed off.

The BBC’s Europe Editor should not tell us his negative opinions of any party in the days before an election ‐ so I am very pleased that Daniel Hannan as a conservative is making this post. A complaint from him to the BBC Trust, about the treatment of a party which he opposes, would carry a lot of weight. The BBC can just ignore the ordinary licence payer.

Like many people in UKIP, I constantly wonder if the soft loans from the EIB have had an effect on output. Although the BBC refuted the suggestion that there would be any effect on the editorial process at the time, one of the conditions of EIB loans is that the aims of the E.U. are promoted and furthered. I, for one, am bewildered as to why an organisation such as the BBC that raises £3.36 billion annually, with almost guaranteed supra-inflationary increases by state-mandated taxation, needs to borrow £141 million from such a source that places its editorial integrity under question. Looking at the quality of BBC output, I am mystified as to where it is spent.

Or is the BBC simply taking orders from 10, Downing Street? To expose the European Union for the fraudulent, inept, overweening, corrupt and devious mess that we think it is might set the British people to question why we are a member of such an organisation, its second largest funder, and cause people to actually question what has been done in their name and with their money but without their electoral mandate.

Conclusion

I turn to the Bridcut Report, “From Seesaw to Wagon Wheel”. It contains Twelve Guiding Principles to ensure impartiality, which I have reproduced in Appendix A. The BBC Trust webpage states the following:

The report is the result of a project first commissioned by the BBC Board of Governors in conjunction with BBC management in November 2005 to identify the challenges and risks to impartiality. The report has been fully endorsed by the BBC Trust, the BBC Executive Board and the BBC Journalism Board.

Endorsed it may have been, although this carries little significant meaning. It is a great shame that it was not ‘embraced’, or even adopted.

As much to blame for this situation are spineless and devious politicians. BBC funding appears to be a ‘third rail’ in British politics – ‘touch it and you die’, but this should not prevent the issue from being addressed. An iniquitous system such as the licence tax cannot be maintained, and this has been stated by commissioned reports, astute and intelligent individuals, and even James Murdoch at the recent McTaggart Lecture in the Edinburgh Television Festival.

Now that I have fully realised that I cannot trust BBC output on news and political coverage, I am reduced to watching one hour of television per week. It is a BBC programme – Dragon’s Den – a fascinating programme which is available on BBC iPlayer, obviating the need for a television. My views, in common with millions of people in this country, are not represented, so why should I pay the BBC licence tax? A programme that I always thought I would like to see made would be a ‘PPC’s only’ version of BBC1’s Question Time for the four main parties, with each party HQ providing a parliamentary candidate of their choice, just before the general election. Given the way the BBC currently reports politics, with its policy of deliberate exclusion of UKIP I do not see this happening.

I intend to use every technological means to achieve the objective I have stated. I will change my mind and resume payment when I detect a sea-change in attitudes towards political coverage on the BBC and it becomes fair and balanced in proportion to a range of electoral results and more representative of reasoned public opinion. In the meantime, I believe a full, independent public enquiry should be launched into the BBC coverage on TV and radio of both election periods, to investigate my charge in point 5) in Grievance above; hence the distribution list below.

I personally believe that British politics is changing profoundly. The effects of the internet, blogging, scandals, and a detachment of the political and media classes from the mood and opinions of the public are coming to a head. Between the general elections of 2001 and 2005, the Labour Party lost 64% of its membership. The number of new members joining UKIP increased our total membership by13% ….between April and July this year.

Yours sincerely,

Steven W. Morson

Appendix A

The Twelve Guiding Principles of the Bridcut report.

1. Impartiality is and should remain the hallmark of the BBC as the leading provider of information and entertainment in the United Kingdom, and as a pre-eminent broadcaster internationally. It is a legal requirement, but it should also be a source of pride.

2. Impartiality is an essential part of the BBC’s contract with its audience, which owns and funds the BBC. Because of that, the audience itself will often be a factor in determining impartiality.

3. Impartiality must continue to be applied to matters of party political or industrial controversy. But in today’s more diverse political, social and cultural landscape, it requires a wider and deeper application.

4. Impartiality involves breadth of view, and can be breached by omission. It is not necessarily to be found on the centre ground.

5. Impartiality is no excuse for insipid programming. It allows room for fair-minded, evidence-based judgments by senior journalists and documentary makers, and for controversial, passionate and polemical arguments by contributors and writers.

6. Impartiality applies across all BBC platforms and all types of programme. No genre is exempt. But the way it is applied and assessed will vary in different genres.

7. Impartiality is most obviously at risk in areas of sharp public controversy. But there is a less visible risk, demanding particular vigilance, when programmes purport to reflect a consensus for “the common good”, or become involved with campaigns.

8. Impartiality is often not easy. There is no template of wisdom which will eliminate fierce internal debate over difficult dilemmas. But the BBC’s journalistic expertise is an invaluable resource for all departments to draw on.

9. Impartiality can often be affected by the stance and experience of programme makers, who need constantly to examine and challenge their own assumptions.

10. Impartiality requires the BBC to examine its own institutional values, and to assess the effect they have on its audiences.

11. Impartiality is a process, about which the BBC should be honest and transparent with its audience: this should permit greater boldness in its programming decisions. But impartiality can never be fully achieved to everyone’s satisfaction: the BBC should not be defensive about this but ready to acknowledge and correct significant breaches as and when they occur.

12. Impartiality is required of everyone involved in output. It applies as much to the most junior researcher as it does to the director general. But editors and executive producers must give a strong lead to their teams. They must ensure that the impartiality process begins at the conception of a programme and lasts throughout production: if left until the approval stage, it is usually too late.
