Hi,

my thanks to the team at Junius for this blog and you will note it supplements the details at CLICK HERE

& the comments of UKIP staffer now NEC appointee Steve Allison:

The politicisation of any previously non-political group is actually a very bad thing in my opinion. Would you say it was a good thing that Remembrance Sunday is becoming more and more political? How long before it’s just another campaign activity that we all tick off on our campaign plans? I have never and will never lay a UKIP Wreath at a remembrance parade. I don’t want politics in that day. Look at the outcry when Tony Blair tried to use Royal occasions for party politics.

Try reading the Triumph of the political class by Peter Obourne. Brilliant Book. We should be fighting for less politics in things not more.

I do congratulate Lisa and her team on their result but I am still slightly saddened that politics has gained another foothold. In my opinion party politics shouldn’t be a part of local government at any level.

& the additional facts provided at the end of Junius’ Article!

UKIP: Disgust in Ramsey as Reeve and Duffy politicize parish council

UKIP spin doctors have made much of the fact that the party recently ‘gained control’ of it’s first council in Ramsey, Cambs.

Forget the spin. Here are the facts.

Ramsey Town Council has the same powers as a parish council. Nothing more, nothing less. To present this a massive victory for UKIP is absurd!

Candidates were always non-political. But then along came Reeve and Duffy.

We can confirm via our contacts in Ramsey that recent events have left a very sour taste in the town with allegations of ‘dirty tricks’ on the part of Reeve and his munchkins.

For instance:

During the campaign, Reeve posted numerous election posters across the town WITHOUT getting permission from the local authorities. Complaints were made to the returning officer and they were removed. However, within a few days they had mysteriously reappeared. Reeve, of course, claimed to know nothing about this.

Reeve also distributed election literature which failed to comply with electoral law. For instance, official UKIP leaflets and letters failed to mention who had promoted or printed the literature.

They are allegations that UKIP’s election expenditure far exceeded the amount allowed by law.

The Lib Dems did not contest the election and the Tories failed to distribute election literature or conduct even a basic campaign. UKIP was given a easy ride.

Three of UKIP’s candidates don’t even live in Ramsey.

Reeve – at the very first council meeting – had the UKIP councillors appoint Lisa Duffy – his girlfriend – mayor. He also instructed them to appoint Ian Curtis – his friend – deputy mayor.

He then told the non-UKIP councillors – he used the words ‘you lot’ – to sit on the other side of the table facing ‘his councillors’ did not wish to sit alongside them. This arrogant, combative stance has angered many in the town.

Reeve is also claiming credit for planning a Micro Business Centre in the town, In fact, this idea was first put forward by the ‘Ramsey Intiative‘. See: LINK

Reeve and Duffy are VERY ambitious people. They ultimate goal is sit alongside Farage in Brussels. Reeve also thinks that one day he will become UKIP’s first elected MP. He has even promised to marry Duffy in Westminster once elected as a Cambridgshire MP!

They are using the people of Ramsey for their own sordid ends. Greed is the sole thing that motivates this dishonest pair!

Delusions of grandeur has always formed a large part of the psyche of this unsavoury duo! Let’s just hope that the Town’s officials are good at damage limitation!

We have been amused by the amount of UKIP supporters on Twitter, Facebook and the blogs who seem to think that winning a majority (in crude fashion) on a non-political council is a cause for celebration.

And don’t forget that Reeve is still under investigation by OLAF for alleged fraud! The OLAF case number is OF/2010/0282. See: LINK

Here is the video where Stuart Agnew – UKIP MEP
admits illegally paying Reeve!

And for more on Duffy: LINK

I understand that there are even allegations floating around Ramsey that claim that Peter Reeve even used cash – presumably stolen by Stuart Agnew from the tax payers in the style of the fraud he has admitted to – hearsay claims that the cash was used to bribe support of a Tory member or their switch to UKIP which would not surprise me as UKIP leadership team have shown themselves time andf again to have nothing but contempt for Electoral Law, the Electoral Commission and any sense of moral, ethical or financial probity.

I can well imagine the likes of Peter Reeve as a staffer of UKIP would be all too willing to buy votes in one way or another – I believe him to be that dishonest and corrupt but in this particular narrow example I have absolutely no clear evidence beyond the gossip from Ramsey and the belief that the amount of posters and leaflets seemed disproportionate to the norm within accepted electoral practice.

I had also understood that it was a requirement of electoral law on what are in political circles nick named ‘Dog Dirt Council’ namely irrelevancies like the Parish Council of Ramsey albeit flattered by its grandiose  styling as ‘Town Council’ that it was the custom – even perhaps the law that Councillors at very least lived or had businesses within the Council bounds in fact is it not within the specific ward?

Do read CLICK HERE there is a host more detail and it is sad to see a little village like Ramsey so exploited and demeaned:

The people of Ramsey may be better served were there less childish inclination to seize the chain and by CLICK HERE & HERE

Rather than see Ramsey demeaned but to me far more importantly rather than see UKIP demeaned by this unseemly spectacle of bragaddocio over a tiny local council as if it were some great achievement it is so sad to think that after 18 years this can be considered worthy of such promotion by UKIP when as this is clearly their greatest achievement together with beating The Greens – let us face it their results were an embarrassing abject failure.

Hi,

an interesting comment on the obvious stupidity of letting idiots loose acting in their own interest and self serving greed for status to desperately try to lie, cheat and leapfrog their way to listing as potential MEPs – Just how embarrassing can the on line snippet in The Daily Mail be regarding this disaster?

Genuine Patriots in UKIP must be relieved that the story of this foolish and dishonourable failure did not get into any papers of note.

Few of any intelligence or decency would disagree with UKIP’s staff member and now NEC appointee Steve Allison who comments:

The politicisation of any previously non-political group is actually a very bad thing in my opinion. Would you say it was a good thing that Remembrance Sunday is becoming more and more political? How long before it’s just another campaign activity that we all tick off on our campaign plans? I have never and will never lay a UKIP Wreath at a remembrance parade. I don’t want politics in that day. Look at the outcry when Tony Blair tried to use Royal occasions for party politics.

Try reading the Triumph of the political class by Peter Obourne. Brilliant Book. We should be fighting for less politics in things not more.

I do congratulate Lisa and her team on their result but I am still slightly saddened that politics has gained another foothold. In my opinion party politics shouldn’t be a part of local government at any level.

Clearly neither Peter Reeve nor his doxy Lisa Duffy would have the intellect or fundamental common sense to realise the damaging and demeaning folly of their stupidity.

So within hours the foolish pair dashed down to get their hands on the chain for a quick snap which demeans not only UKIP but the office of this glorified Parish Council – Ramsey is sadly made to look stupid by such behaviour – could they find no one of sober and self effacing competence?

This does rather show the stupidity of unprofessional UKIP with no competent training being used and abused for personal gain! What a shame to politicise yet another area of life just for these odious nobodies!

  • Population in 1801 – 1894.
  • Population in 1851 – 4645.
  • Population in 1901 – 4823.
  • Population in 1951 – 5770.
  • Population in 1971 – 5646.
  • After 1981 the parish population figures were divided into to the two de-facto parishes of Ramsey St. Mary and Ramsey Town.
  • Population in 1981 – 5816 (Ramsey St. Mary parish) and 3652 (Ramsey Town).
  • Population in 1991 – 4995 (Ramsey St. Mary parish) and 5181 (Ramsey Town).

I assume this includes the quoted 1,400 students at the local college!

Sadly this does put the over blown claims of UKIP’s achievements in perspective:

The Mouse That Roared!

Ruritania Rides Out?

I do appreciate this is being promoted as some sort of achievement to cover for the wholesale failure of UKIP in domestic politics.

I live in Chepstow in Monmouthshire at Geo. Sat. 353 484-194 013 or if you would rather NP16 5ET & NP16 5EX – you will note that is almost slap bang in the middle of the town of Chepstow.

Chepstow has a population of around 20,000 and in most wards it is a struggle to find someone to stand for the clown Council as it is – like all other Town Councils – virtually irrelevant – in fact I haven’t a clue and less interest who is the Mayor, a title awarded on the basis of ‘Buggins Turn’. £1 for each time I have been approached to stand or be co-opted to unfilled seats would pay for a pleasant evening for myself and a couple of friends at a local restaurant.

I note the comments of a UKIP supporter, in the local area of Ramsey, Len Baynes on one of the UKIP controlled Forums is telling and clearly UKIP would seem to have done themselves more harm than good with this appointment:

There are times when it is a good strategy not to win some elections. It has been a good strategy by Peter Reeve & Lisa Duffy to win district & council seats in their town & Lisa is set fair to win the final district council seat next year.

But the way they have taken over the parish council has left a bad taste in the town. The council has always been non-political and has had good respresentation from the town & the villages which make up the Ramsey ward. But UKIP flooded the ballot paper with candidates some of whom don’t live in the ward; and won an immediate majority. They then voted in Lisa Duffy as mayor and Ian Curtis as deputy mayor. Indeed the whole stance is combative so instead of everyone sitting randomly round the table Reeve has put all the UKIP members on one side of the table and the rest on the other side.

This is too much too soon and has shaken a lot of people in the town. It would be stupid to lose the bigger prizes by appearing to want a “benign” dictatorship in the area.

So far contary to some of the statements on this forum the Tories have been quite laid back about UKIP in the Ramsey area as they have huge majorities in Huntingdon DC and Peterborogh City council. This year the Lib DEms didn’t put up a candidate and the Tories put up a paper candidate & did no canvassing or electioneering. However make too big a noise and maybe they’ll get together in a common cause and start spending some money.

Come on guys use your brains

 Another supporter in damning Peter Reeve with sarcasm and feint praise for mounting this politicised raid describes the situation as Lilliputian!

It is hard to disagree – yes indeed well done for personal achievement there will always be those who seek to busy body and claim importance and it is great that our democracy allows for such self important people to gather and discuss, with no authority, the siting of benches, doug fouling in the streets, and as a vent for complaints about late night noise on some Councils they even sometimes have a local community Constable attend.

Even locally I have NEVER heard a political party crowing over the banal squabblings of the mental midgets on our council.

Sorry to present this as some great achievement shows UKIP up and demeans the party more than assists them.

That the party had such risible results in the recent local elections is further highlighted by the fact that they make much of this when let us face it Steve Povey would have been embarrassed if such agrandisement of his time as Mayor had been thus presented!

It is all as toe curlingly embarrassing as  having UKIP represented by proven liars and cheats like Mick McGough, David Bannerman and the like – the gonadically challenged like Gerard Batten, John Bufton and their ilk the utterly stupid like Godfrey bloom or the fraudulently dishonest such as Stuart Agnew, Derek Clark.

Then to see some irrelevant hireling writing blogs and essays dragging the name and reputation of Winston Churchill into the gutter politics of UKIP so demeans the party as to further render them unfit for purpose.

The tragedy is that UKIP was our only lifeboat and they have so demeaned themselves that the people of Britain have resoundingly rejected them as even after 18 years and many £Millions invested out of the 19,500 available seats for election their only claim is to have done better than the crypto communist Greens and promote as their great achievement ONE Mayor placed in a town council! Less than 30 seats are occupied across Britain by those elected as UKIP and of those 13 were elected on the wake of protest against Westminster’s perceived corruption to be MEPs – seen by the British public as largely irrelevant – and who could argue!

Sadly in or should I say within The EU UKIP’s residual 9 members in support of Farage would seem only to be seen as a slightly embarrassing comedy act. It is hardly surprising when one looks at the pond life gathered and rewarded as praise singers – all too willing to offer praise of Farage in return for the monies he liberally contributes to them from the public purse!

Is it any wonder that UKIP is described as bankrupt which I readily concede is something of a foolish statement by the half baked accountant and self publicist Marta Andreasen but that they are technically insolvent must come as little surprise as they desperately wriggle and squirm to avoid further liabilities for their utter incompetence in leadership and man management that has laid them open to serial exposure in the Courts.

Clearly they are broke as they have not as yet honoured their moral debts to me of £12,500 and clearly can not pay them – nor even honour the debt they incurred by their action as ordered by Cardiff Courts of £8,500 – yes it seems they are technically bankrupt their only excuse may be that they are morally bankrupt and utterly duplicitous.

I note Farage has been asked ‘to do a turn’ on 31st. May at a funded talking shop where the promotion is based on offering as compensation for listening to him ‘At least the cocktails will be enjoyable’ – in the invitations!

Preesall Town Council has rather a track record of losing its Councillors when you realise that there are after all only 6 councillors on the the council of this little town on the north east banks of The River Wyre in Lancashire best known for its floods.

For details of the resignation of the Mayor last year CLICK HERE or HERE

Councillor Chris Lamb was elected as a Conservative councillor but has reneged on his tiny electorate and has joined UKIP Independence Party.

Preesall Councillor Chris Lamb said: “I am fed up with being ruled by other national governments whom I know nothing about or voted for.”

One is forced to wonder what he knows about UKIP if he knows so little about how these United Kingdoms are governed.

Perhaps he has found the transition to UKIP easier than it might have been as I note there is a Derek Nuttall who is one of the 5 remaining Councillors – could this be a relation of Paul Nuttall’s?

I personally do not believe that UKIP serves itself well by seemingly making much of other party’s rejects!

It is sad to note that after 17 years that UKIP has less than 30 elected public officers – in fact it could be less than 20 – one has to wonder just what UKIP is there for when one realises how few seats UKIP has EVER held out of the some 19,000+ seats available!

Although Chris Lamb has made it cleart he knows little about The EU I am sure that in the fullness of time we will be informed of the skills and expertise he brings to UKIP.

Let us hope his seat is not up for election this coming year as he is likely to be short lived as the seat will most likely remain with The Tories in a fair election.

CORRECTION:

I am advised by a phone call that a regular reader of this blog too ashamed to put his name to his criticism has pointed out that I have made a mistake – I attributed Town status to what is little more than a village with 5,314 population at the last census.

I note the village is split into 2 sections EACH with 6 councillors so Mr. Lamb clearly has even less relevance than I first thought.

MEA CULPA & my thanks for giving me further information than I had originally posted – strangely UKIP seemingly give no information of this chap whatsoever – other than his self depricating confession.

If anyone has further information on this blog either by way of correction of any mistake I have made or in reasonable expansion of the postings PLEASE do not hesitate to bring it to my attention – you will of course enjoy more respect than the scum and cowards who liberally berate individuals yet lack the integrity to put their identity to their ‘STORIES’ be they true or just lies like Independent UKIP’s frequent cowardly comments or the filth of Skeptyk and their ilk.

 I HAVE JUST VISITED 06:30hrs 13-12-2010
Anthony Butcher’s squalid Forum used as a platform by liars in Anonymity:

What a pompous ASS the so called Independent UKIP is – as is so often the case he is completely wrong in his assumption and whatever makes him think an apology from a liar too ashamed to put his name to his foolish self important prattling would be of any value but to another TROLL like him!!!

May I suggest that anyone seeking the truth about this idiots claims looks up the town of  Preesall for some reason its entry as a Council is in two parts for such a small town with a population smaller than many villages this is unusual.

For the record I am frequently phoned with items of interest and many UKIP followers watch the posturing on Butcher’s Forum and phone me if something of any note floats to the top in that septic tank.

In visiting the site whilst awaiting a call I have also read Basildon Boy’s comments on the subject. It is interesting that he makes valid contributions whilst the insecure little Independent UKIP merely tries to point score making a fool of himself in the process.

It seems rare that this particular TROLL makes any comment beyond cowardly jibes at those he is too stupid to keep pace with.

Anyone with valid info do by all means give me a phone call – the best times are evening through to about 3am. Health wise I am a very poor sleeper never managing much more than 3 hours at a stretch!
