Clean EUkip up NOW & make UKIP electable!

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

One has to wonder what it is about EUkip that it attracts scrap dealers and professional gamblers as backers so readily. I can not understand why Stuart Wheeler has shown such a staggeringly foolish lack of understanding of the Electoral Commission case against EUkip – someone has even dishonestly duped the poor old chap that beyond the similarity of the names Bown and Brown there is any meaningful similarity between the EUkip case and that of The Lib.Dims.

For all Stuart Wheeler’s foolish prattle and the outright lies of Nigel Farage the Courts have the measure of the case – hence the GUILTY verdict before the Court after various rounds of cost escalating stupidity by Farage’s Fan Club of Fools, in their chase for personal agrandisement.

Stuart Wheeler has put his name to the following quite foolish and proven inaccurate statement:

Wheeler speaks up for UKIP

Saturday, 21st November 2009

A major donor to the UK  Independence Party has hit out at the Electoral Commission over its decision to push UKIP for the return of a £360,000 donation while allowing the Lib Dems to keep £2.4 million given to them by a criminal now on the run.
Former Tory donor and spread betting millionaire Stuart Wheeler, who donated £100,000 to UKIP before the European elections said today: “I am not a member of UKIP but I do support them and this does not seem right.

“The Electoral Commission has now said it does not intend to take proceedings against the Liberal Democrats for the recovery of gifts totalling about £2.4 million pounds given to them by a company controlled by Michael Brown, a man who was not a permissible donor and who is now on the run, having been sentenced to seven years imprisonment.

“It is clear that the donation came from abroad and was therefore entirely against the spirit of the relevant legislation.

“But the Commission has decided to pursue UKIP for recovery of a donation given by somebody who could easily have made the donation through a permissible company and who would have been a permissible donor but for a purely technical slip which is acknowledged by the court to have been entirely inadvertent.”

Perhaps the poor old chap should have read up on the FACTS rather than listen to the well crafted and misleading claims of the petty crooks and liars running EUkip.

UKIP to forfeit £350,000 in donations after Electoral Commission victory

The UK Independence Party stands to forfeit nearly £350,000 in donations after the Court of Appeal ruled in favour of watchdog body the Electoral Commission.

A long-running legal dispute between the Commission and the party centred on donations in the form of cash and services from retired bookmaker Alan Bown at a time when he was not on the electoral roll.
Three judges ordered the case back to the magistrates’ court for a new decision on forfeiture based on their findings.
Sir Paul Kennedy said: ”In the present case I can detect nothing which would entitle the magistrates’ court not to make the forfeiture order which the EC seeks.”
Mr Bown had been on the electoral register in Thanet, Kent, but was removed by mistake without his knowledge in December 2004.
He did not find out until December 2005 and he was reinstated the following February.
Ukip, which has one MP and 10 MEPs, admitted breaking the law, but said it was due to a clerical error and that to order forfeiture of the entire sum would be disproportionate.
In August 2007, City of Westminster Magistrates’ Court held that although Ukip had not taken ”all reasonable steps” to establish that Mr Bown was on the roll, the error was accidental.
It ruled that Ukip should forfeit only £18,481 of the total but the Commission brought a judicial review of the decision and the High Court ordered a fresh hearing.
That was put on hold when the watchdog referred the case to the Court of Appeal to clarify aspects of the law.
Sir Paul said the law requires a political party to take “all reasonable steps” to verify that a donation is permitted.
One of the rules is that donors must be on the electoral register if they give more than £200. This was enacted primarily to stop foreign donations.
“Parliament having decided that the test of acceptability of a donation from an individual should be whether that individual was registered in an electoral register, it seems to me to be irrelevant whether an impermissible donor is or is not making a foreign donation,” said Sir Paul.
He said magistrates’ courts should “not be seduced” into ignoring the wording of the Act governing donations.
“The fact that Ukip accepted donations from Mr Bown without realising that he was no longer in an electoral register is also, to my mind, immaterial.”
Welcoming the decision, the Electoral Commission said: “The effect of the Court of Appeal’s judgment is that, in all but exceptional circumstances, political parties should give up in full donations accepted from an individual who is not a ‘permissible donor’.”
Peter Wardle, chief executive, commented: “We brought this appeal because the magistrate’s court decision created some uncertainty for political parties about the way the law should be applied. In this case, a party had accepted money that it should not have, but was allowed to keep most of it.
“Political parties need to raise money to campaign, develop policy and communicate with voters. But all parties also need to follow the rules. And these rules need to be clear, simple and easy to follow.
“Parliament decided that political parties should only be able to accept money from individuals if they are on a UK electoral register. This provides a straightforward test of whether they should accept money or not. They simply need to check the electoral register. The United Kingdom Independence Party did not take these simple steps.
“The court agreed that we took the right approach in this case, an approach that was in line with the intentions of Parliament when passing this legislation.”

In February 2007 the commission sought forfeiture of 67 donations totalling £367,697 after a district judge ordered that Ukip should forfeit just £14,481.

Clearly Stuart Wheeler has money to burn and a fool and his money are clearly easily parted!

It seems he has not read Andrew Smith’s internal memo setting out to dupe the Electoral Commission:

From: “Smith Epping” To: “Geoffrey Kingscott” Cc: “Nigel Farage (UKIP)” ; “Douglas Denny”

Subject: Treasurers meeting

Thank you Geoffrey for organising the meeting. We need to give the Electoral Commission every reason to believe we are serious about compliance, in order to provide the next Party Treasurer with a good story to tell when we next fail to meet the statutory requirements.

They should be invited to any big regional meeting and to Party Conference to speak at least to a break-out meeting to Treasurers.

It would have been a suitable event for prospective Party Treasurers to learn a lot about what the job entailed. Were any of them there?

I thought the practical points which emerged, in the absence of the Electoral Commission, were a lesson for the NEC on what their priorities should be. The branches are crying out for better admin and they are full of good ideas.

I hope the NEC takes good notice of your report of the meeting.


Surely Farage has a duty not to mislead people when he seeks to ‘aquire’ their money as to fail to do so must be a criminal action in line with obtaining money by false pretences!

Has Stuart Wheeler not realised the very many deliberate decisions made by EUkip which moved their position inexorably from a clerical error that was easily rectified through 67 offences all brought to EUkip’s attention yet they arrogantly ignored the law and in total hubris managed to convert those minor correctable errors into a well earned GUILTY verdict and a debt of £3/4 Million!

Consider the Electoral Commission’s letter:

Ukip’s rulebreaking

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

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

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

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

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

 The list of foolish folk who have swallowed the lies of Farage is long – he may have charm but he is quite clearly a moral dyslexic!

 Stuart Wheeler is only following in the footsteps od the opinionated twit from Newsnight Michael Crick who really did get carried away with his profound discovery that Bown & Brown were similar names! Crick’s stupidity and lazy journalism was sadly copied by Christopher Booker which was indeed sad as it demeaned his otherwise accurate, informative and sound judgement.

EUkip is unarguably Guilty as charged, there is absolutely no doubt and now they are Guilty of duping a generous old man!

I tend to wonder which is the greater crime in moral terms! 


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

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

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

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

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

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