Clearly UKIP Couldn’t Organise A Carnival In Croydon so why do people think they have a serious role inpolitics where they can’t deliver either – 21 years and still no Exit & Survival Plan!

Hi,
as ever UKIP’s desperate efforts to pretend to inclusivity leaves them with Winston McKenzie as a ticking time bomb who as so often happens with UKIP under Nigel Farage’s inept attempts at leadership has yet again ‘blown’!
Just as in almost every election UKIP participates in issues overtake policies and as ever this time the overt racism of Farage’s chosen campaign where we note that the only publicity UKIP has received in the election run up has either been that which they purchased or bad publicity, which to be fair has indeed drawn support but sadly, as can be seen in these photos, amongst the elderly and those who previously supported the BNP and other xenophobes.
You will note how the UKIP racist issue has totally subsumed any reasoned rational promotion of policy to Leave_The_EU. This is hardly surprising in the ligyht of their inept and ill considered damaging campaign that gained so much bad publicity to add to the baggage that UKIP has attracted that has largely lost them the core vote from genuine EUroSceptics and has so damaged the EUroRealist movement such that if they continue to pretend to represent those opposed to membership of The EU that there is a danger that in the next year or two they will manage to lock Britain into membership and vassal status in the EU.
Astonishingly after 21 years UKIP still has absolutely no viable Exit & Survival Atrategy and clearly have very little understanding of just how the EU works, its foundations or its aims. UKIP has failed to explain just how Britain would be better off out of The EU or how it could be achieved – nor of the bigger picture and whilst they have a line of denigratory & childish rhetoric they would seem to have absoluitely no strategy or tactics that encompass the facts – just ya boo rhetoric.
UKIP quite clearly has no understanding of the background of the EU and their actions in placing their impramature on the negotiated edicts of The WHO, CODEX, Davos and other International bodies that oil the wheels of International trade and relations – The EU instigates almost nothing of consequence merely taking our place at the negotiating tables seeking a one size fits all concept making no allowances for the needs, aspirations and values of many of the constituent Nation States.
UKIP has displayed its ineptitude and lack of gravitas on a seriak basis – many may adulate them but few respect them whilst a clear majority despise their cheap style and fundamental lack of any candidates of note in any serious terms.UKIP lacked even the competence to put forward an entry for the BrExit Prize, clearly having no one of competence to research and write such a paper – though I concede that with 20/20 hindsight we now know that the BrExit Prize devolved into farce due to the corrupt management by The IEA and the ineptitude of the judges, which must have been disapointing for the 15 year old, who unlike UKIP, was actually able to present an entry for judgement.
Clearly UKIP is hugely out of its depth – it is not just Nigel Farage ducking out on attending meetings and being unable to cope with hard/combative interview by a well versed interviewer, as shown by James O’Brien on LBC CLICK HERE One need only read through their list of largely low life and nobodies they have fielded as candidate to represent them (for they sure won’t represent me and millions of others like me who seek competence) there really isn’t a single individual of competence, gravitas and integrity amongst their 60 or so candidates.
Then look at their candidates for the 4,000 local Council seats as they lurch from idiocy to irelevance as they are clearly such low grade – I look at my own Council and even in comparison with Labour who I have zero affinity with and the Lib.Dims. I have little but contempt for or even Tory who are so smugly inept UKIP are little more than an embarrassment – as shown by the publicity they have attracted as they follow in the footsteps of general failure of those who went before them.
UKIP may well have polled well for the EU election where we can expect 30% or less participation although it is clear the mask is slipping as the public see through the facade and UKIP has clearly peaked too early and they face every danger of a collapse in their vote, though the low turnout favours minority parties, there is still a chance they will come a close second with around 25 MEP seats but the danger they may only manage to hang onto a close third witha dozen seats only, which becomes ever more likely day on day and were it a further two weeks to the election they might do even worse.
Of the 4,000 local government seats up for election I very much doubt UKIP will top 200 and the number is also falling as the days pass and UKIP’s low grad candidates lurch from bad publicity to offensive behaviour!
Little wonder that Nigel Farage has to lay claim to his crass comments being due to being tired – let us not forget that  interogators use sleep deprivation as a means to expose the truth! That Farage is living in 3 different Countries staying either in hotels or The East India Club rarely visiting his alleged home where he has been paying his ‘wife’ some £30K a year of public money – presumably either as hush money or to keep the house aired we know not though we do know for certain that to originally get himself onto the gravy train he promised never to employ family members!
Perhaps he no longer considers Kirsten to be a relation in the light of the clear estrangement of their relationship!

Ukip scraps ‘carnival’ to prove it’s not racist after steel band refuses to play in front of ‘Love Colour’ sign and Farage stays away

Nigel Farage was forced to pull the plug on his latest attempt to prove Ukip is not racist, after a steel band refused to play at a bizarre ‘Carnival’ in Croydon.

The Ukip leader hoped it would be a ‘bold and vibrant’ event to defy his critics, but organisers were confronted with protesters likening the party to Nazis.

Mr Farage abandoned plans to attend after opponents clashed with party members, the steel band walked out and a Ukip candidate branded Croydon a ‘dump’.

Ukip yesterday paid for a full-page advert in a national newspaper insisting it was not racist. 

Today’s event, staged in front of a shop window with the slogan ‘Love Colour’ was a follow-up to a rally Mr Farage held featuring candidates and members from ethnic minorities.

 In an apparent admission that the party had to do more to prove it was not racist, the street rally was organised in Croydon.

But Ukip candidates and supporters clashed with protesters and campaigners. Romanians carrying banners about Nazis argued with party members about Nigel Farage’s remarks last week about Romanian neighbours.

Winston McKenzie, a black Ukip candidate in Thursday’s election, clashed with black teenagers in a debate over whether he was a leader of the community while also being in the party.

 

He used a megaphone to make a speech urging people to make Britain great again. Mr Farage was due to attend the event, dubbed a carnival or street party, on Croydon High Street.

In his speech, Mr McKenzie said: ‘I want to thank all of the patriotic people in this country who are fed up, let down by the situation.

 

‘I’m sick to death… of hearing the same rhetoric come from the same stale political parties.

 

‘It’s time people woke up and realised this country is being disenfranchised.’

Police officers watched over the peaceful but heated clashes outside the Whitgift Shopping Centre.  

The Endurance Steel band, which included black members, told reporters they were ’embarrassed’ to be there because they did not think that people should vote for Ukip. 

Winston McKenzie, a Ukip council candidate in Croydon, tried to silence critics using a megaphone. Standing in front of a Ukip battlebus he addressed a small group of party members.

But as he was shouted down by opponents, it emerged that Mr Farage had cancelled a visit to the town. Mr McKenzie confirmed Mr Farage would not be attending, citing security concerns.

 

He told reporters: ‘He’s a responsible family man and political party leader. Certain situations you have to avoid.’

 

Mr McKenzie added: ‘Croydon is unsafe and a dump.’

 

Protesters told Ukip to ‘f*** off’ and challenged them over remarks by one council candidate who said comedian and actor Lenny Henry should emigrate to a ‘black country’.

It came after Mr Farage was condemned by politicians from the three main parties after declaring in a radio interview last week that everyone knows ‘the difference’ between Romanians and Germans. Mr Farage’s second wife Kirsten is German.

The Ukip leader yesterday attempted to backtrack, saying the vast majority of Romanians were ‘good people’.

‘If I gave the impression… that I was discriminating against Romanians then I apologise certainly for that,’ the Ukip leader said on a campaign visit to Ramsgate. He said people would – rather than should – be concerned about Romanian neighbours.

He added: ‘Can we just have an honest appraisal of what has happened to post-communist Romania? Across the whole of the European Union, amongst all 28 member states, 7 per cent of all crime is committed by 240 Romanian gangs.’

Now Ukip’s second poster boy builder is revealed to be an IRISH actor as Farage battles to contain row over supporter’s tweets about ‘evil’ Islam

• ‘Builder’ seen begging in the street is Dave O’Rourke from Dublin
• Featured in £1.5million poster campaign against EU immigration
• Gaffe follows suspension of Andre Lampitt who wore builder’s hat in TV ad
• The Zimbabwean branded the Prophet Mohammed a paedophile on Twitter

Ukip is battling to rescue its flagship £1.5million ad campaign today, after it emerged a builder who featured in a poster complaing about foreign workers is actually an actor from Ireland.
The gaffe emerged just hours after the party suspended a second man who appeared in an election broadcast video wearing a hard hat for a series of tweets which condemned Islam as ‘evil and branded the Prophet Mohammed a paedophile.

The row comes despite attempts to improve the party’s image and prevent a repeat of last year’s local election campaign which was dominated by controversy about the outburst and behaviour of candidates.

On Tuesday Mr Farage unveiled a series of hard-hitting anti-immigration posters as part of its campaign for the European elections on May 22.

 One featured a builder begging on the street with the message: ‘EU policy at work. British workers are hit hard by unlimited cheap labour.’

But today it emerged the man is not a builder at all, but actor Dave O’Rourke from Dublin.

HOW UKIP SAW ITS £1.5MILLION CAMPAIGN RUN INTO TROUBLE

The launch of the anti-immigration poster campaign on Tuesday was supposed to mark the start of a new, more professional era for Ukip.

The award-winning Edinburgh-based advertising agency Family – which has worked for the BBC, Debenhams and the Conservatives – helped produce the campaign funded by ex-Tory donor Paul Sykes.

But critics branded the slogans ‘racist’, even before revelations about the people in the poster and TV adverts plunged the party into turmoil.

Builder posted offensive tweets

Zimbabwean decorator Andre Lampitt posed in a builder’s hard hat to complain that ‘lads from Eastern Europe’ were undercutting him.

But on Twitter he posted a series of offensive comments,  claiming Ed Miliband is ‘not British’, condemned Islam as ‘evil’, branding the Prophet Mohammed a paedophile and saying he wanted Africans to ‘kill themselves off’.

UKIP RESPONSE: Nigel Farage: ‘Repellent was the word we used, and I will stick with that. We have put in place a vetting procedure and something has gone wrong.’

‘Voter’ is Ukip events manager

 
Lizzy Vaid appears as a voter from Devon in the new Ukip manifesto, but actually works for the party

 

Lizzy Vaid appears in a full-page photograph as a voter from Devon, but is actually Ukip’s events manager and an assistant to the party leader.

UKIP RESPONSE: Nigel Farage: ‘The fact that Lizzie Laid is half-Indian and works for us is as far as we are concerned a non-issue. Most parties use actors. We use Ukippers.’

‘Jobless builder’ is an Irish actor

 
Ukip faced embarrassment today after it emerged the builder in its latest anti-immigration advert was an actor, Dave O'Rourke, who is from Ireland

 

Eye-catching poster shows a builder begging on the street with the message: ‘EU policy at work. British workers are hit hard by unlimited cheap labour.’

But he is Dave O’Rourke, an actor from Ireland who moved to Britain 10 years ago.

UKIP RESPONSE: Director of communications Patrick O’Flynn: ‘The vast majority of people used in political poster campaigns are actors. It is totally standard practice.’

 

On his profile on the acting website StarNow, he boasts of being able to speak in several accents including Irish, South African, English, Scottish and German.

He says: ‘I’m originally from Dublin, Living in the UK 10 years. I’m currently acting full time and looking to build my portfolio.

‘I’m hard working and fully committed to a role and my character to give the best performance I can deliver.’

His CV includes a part as ‘a troubled youth with psychotic tendencies’ in Saltwater, a 2001 Irish drama with In Bruges and Harry Potter star Brendan Gleeson.

He has since taken part in two drama courses in Edinburgh and played an HMRC officer in the 2008 drama Adulthood.

People from Ireland are able to move freely to the UK under the immigration rules which Mr Farage is campaigning against.

To add to the embarrassment, only this week Mr Farage boasted: ‘Most parties use actors. We use Ukippers.’

It followed the revelation that ‘Lizzy Vaid from Devon’ who featured in the party’s manifesto is actually Ukip’s events manager based in London.

Today Ukip director of communications Patrick O’Flynn insisted: ‘The vast majority of people used in political poster campaigns are actors. It is totally standard practice.’

The gaffe comes after Ukip moved to suspend Andre Lampit, a decorator who appeared in a party political broadcast.

Mr Lampitt had previously condemned Mr Miliband as ‘not a real Brit’ and suggested Africans should ‘kill themselves off’.

In a series of posts on Twitter, he said he loathed the charity Oxfam and welcomed Aids outbreaks in Africa, saying: ‘Inner peace will come when Aids does what it should and reduce  African density.’

Like Mr Farage, he said he admired Russian leader Vladimir Putin, adding: ‘At least Putin loves his country. David Cameron does not love Britain, he loves the EU.’

Asked about Mr Lampitt’s comments, Mr Farage said: ‘Repellent was the word we used, and I will stick with that. We have got the European elections happening, we have also got local elections and we have got 2,234 candidates standing for Ukip.

‘It’s our biggest ever push in local elections. We have put in place a vetting procedure and something has gone wrong.’

Pressed on whether he viewed Mr Lampitt’s comments as racist, Mr Farage told BBC Breakfast: ‘I think they probably are, yes.’

He added: ‘Someone has made a mistake, so I’m going to have an investigation into this and somebody must be disciplined for this.’

Ukip said it was ‘shocked’ by his views, which will embarrass the party as it prepares for local elections next month – with Mr Lampitt standing as a councillor in Merton, South London.

The builder, who describes himself as ‘born British in Rhodesia’, was one of five supporters hand-picked to appear in a prime-time television campaign starting this week.

He was featured in the broadcast criticising immigration from the EU, saying: ‘Since the lads from Eastern Europe are prepared to work for a lot less than anybody else, I’ve found it a real struggle.’

Yesterday, the party said it was suspending him after discovering he had expressed ‘repellent’ views in a series of potentially unlawful messages on Twitter over recent months.

In one tweet Mr Lampitt claimed that Islam was not a religion and called it an ‘evil organisation respecting a prophet who as a pedo.’[sic]

He added: ‘All Muslims need to leave Europe… or denounce their pathetic satanic religion.’

UKIP leader Nigel Farage admits: ‘something has gone wrong’
 

Another message insisted: ‘Most Nigerians are generally bad people… I  grew up in Africa and dare anyone to prove me wrong.’

He suggested Africans should be ‘left to ‘kill themselves off’ and suggested people should ‘get over’ slavery, which he said was an ‘act of war’.

‘His racist views might even make the BNP wince with embarrassment’

Tim Farron, Lib Dem president

 

Condemning the Labour leader, he said: ‘Miliband is not a real Brit. I  hope he never gets to be PM! He was only born here.’

In another message, he said Mr Miliband, whose father Ralph was born in Belgium to Polish parents, was ‘Polish, not British’.

He also suggested examination of statistics on rape would reveal a racial bias among attackers, and in another message declared: ‘Enoch Powell was right’.

A Ukip spokesman said: ‘We are deeply shocked that Mr Lampitt has expressed such repellent views.

 
The UK Independence Party political broadcast
 

 
‘His membership of the party has been suspended immediately pending a full disciplinary process.’

However, it was not clear whether Mr Lampitt can be removed from the party’s list of council candidates in Merton, because nominations closed yesterday.

The timing of the row is unfortunate for Mr Farage, who has this week rejected claims from some Labour MPs that his party’s latest election billboards on immigration are racist.

Ukip had suggested its candidates would be put through more rigorous checks following a series of controversies over the views of some on race, gay marriage and other issues.

It faces questions about how it failed to check messages posted over several months and available for all to see on Mr Lampitt’s Twitter page.

Last night his account appeared to have been deleted and he could not be reached.

Lib Dem president Tim Farron said: ‘I cannot believe Ukip did not check the comments of this man before they used him in their broadcast.

The row is a blow for Ukip leader Nigel Farage, who spent the day campaigning in Knutsford in Cheshire

‘His racist views might even make the BNP wince with embarrassment. A week after the French National Front opened their arms to Ukip, with comments like these it’s easy to see why they did.

‘Ukip might wrap themselves in the flag, but these comments are deeply offensive to anyone with decent British values.’

‘We are deeply shocked that Mr Lampitt has expressed such repellent views’

Ukip spokesman

 

Mr Farage promised to eliminate ‘Walter Mittys’ from his candidate list after Ukip defence spokesman Godfrey Bloom – one of his closest allies – quit following outbursts in which he described foreign nations as ‘Bongo Bongo Land’ and women as ‘sluts’.

The Ukip leader said he would ensure only ‘reliable, steady, solid people’ could run for election.

Labour’s Shadow home secretary Yvette Cooper described Mr Lampitt’s tweets as nasty and divisive.

She said on Twitter: ‘Appalling tweets from Ukip member chosen to front campaign. Ukip should reflect very carefully on the way they encourage nasty divisive views.’

This staggeringly unprofessional behaviour from UKIP and the endless repetition of this sort of incompetence and the serial examples of financial profligacy and self serving dishonesty and such events as paying wives and mistresses wityh tax payers money and holding overseas bank accounts to seemingly avoid the taxes of Britain and on and on with candidates and councillors embroilled in racism and internal squabbling it is little wonder the British public have not entrusted UKIP with a role in domestic politics.
Little wonder that after 21 years of such behaviour UKIP still has no MPs and has never even come close to having a UKIP MP and has so very few Councillors yet is seen as an appropriate dustbin of an unsavoury nature for protesters to use as a dustbin to register their opprobrium at the body politic in the politics of the EU which are seen as largely irrelevant in Britain where the electorate realise there is no value in MEPs and where there is a near total lack of any basic concepts of democracy.
It would seem that the more odious the dustbin the more effective it is to show ones contempt at politicians!
UKIP clearly fills that role in EU elections!

What happened to the £287,000 donated to Farage’s local branch?
Do remember Richard Suchorzewski proved at a meeting in Derby that only approx 10% of the money raised by Ashford ever reached UKIP as subsequently confirmed by David Bannerman, the then UKIP MEP!

Did John Moran the liar and low life who ran the scam trouser the cash or share it with Nigel Farage? we may never know as 100s of £1,000s just went missing!

Richard Suchorzewski was lied about with claims he was homosexual and a BNP member for daring to ask for facts & transparency as an elected NEC member both facts were lies claimed by Nigel Farage’s personal staff.

What happened to the £287,000 donated to Farage’s local branch?

Almost £300,000 in Ukip party donations were paid in to Nigel Farage’s local branch and withdrawn as unspecified “other costs”, raising further questions over the party’s funding.
Ukip insiders have repeatedly raised concerns over £287,734 spent by the party’s southeast branch in 2004 and 2005. The money was not used for campaigning, communications, property rental, utilities or auditing and was described only as “other” running costs, according to accounts filed with the Electoral Commission.

In subsequent years, running costs amounted to no more than £8,200. Even though the accounts itemised payments for as little as £496 on communications, they offered no explanation of how the much larger sums were spent.

The withdrawals came as Ukip was chanelling national donations generated by a controversial call centre in Ashford, Kent, into the southeast branch. So concerned were Ukip members about the call centre’s finances that they commissioned an independent report which criticised “a lack of transparency” and called for a full audit.

The fundraising operation, set up in mid-2003 in an office provided free by Alan Bown, Ukip’s biggest donor, has been credited by Mr Farage with raising at least £400,000 and boosting the membership of the fledgeling party.

However, Ukip officials have questioned why much of the donated money never made it to the party’s national coffers. Martin Haslam, the treasurer at Ukip’s southeast branch in 2005, described the call centre as an operation “where money went in and no one quite knew what happened to it”.

In 2006, a group of Ukip members in the south east commissioned a corporate due diligence company to examine the call centre’s business structure. A partial copy of the initial report obtained by The Times indicates that the company raised concerns about “a lack of transparency regarding the set-up and continuing operation of Ashford Employment Ltd [which paid the call centre staff]” and the company history of John Moran, one of the centre’s founders. Mr Moran said he was not aware of the allegations and did not want to comment further.

The report called for an independent auditor to “perform a full audit”, something that insiders say did not happen.

This week, The Times revealed that Mr Farage faces an inquiry into a “missing” £60,000 in EU allowances. Six Ukip officials have complained that their attempts to raise financial concerns were blocked. Documents filed by Ukip with Companies House and the Electoral Commission provide only a partial picture of what happened to funds raised by the call centre.

Ashford Employment Ltd, a company owned by Mr Bown and run by Ukip, was set up in October 2003 to pay for call centre workers. It spent £158,582 in 2004 and £89,456 in 2005. Once staff and the running costs had been met from donations, any surplus from Ashford was transferred to the southeast branch, according to Terry Quarterman, the centre’s former manager and a director of the company. The branch received £291,931 in donations in 2004, the year of the European elections, and £114,967 in 2005, although it is unclear how much was from Ashford.

Former Ukip members have raised concerns about the two large sums that were paid out of the branch in the same two years. In 2004, the branch recorded a £211,267 withdrawal as “other” running costs. In 2005, £89,996 was spent in the same way. Late in 2005, the call centre’s financial affairs were transferred to Ukip’s head office. Ukip said that accounts for the centre were filed with the Electoral Commission. “They were audited as legally required and found to be in order,” a spokesman said.

UKIP are, as predicted, using the spin that the many factual details being exposed by the media are being exposed as a part of an establishment conspiracy to damage UKIP because it is doing well.

Lets look at these foolish claims – firstly UKIP is not doing well that is pure hype after 21 years they still have zero MPs and have never come even close to having one elected and out of 1,750 available Counciller seats UKIP achieved a risible under 150 and of these at least 200 have already fallen out with UKIP some due to racism others due to criminality and when it comes to MEPs of those who were elected about half have quit UKIP having fallen out with Nigel Farage’s dishonesty, bullying and abuse of funds seemingly for his personal gain – including putting his wife on a salary having PROMISED not to employ family to get elected and now also employs at least one of his ex sexual partners!

Consider just how huge UKIP’s failure has been with it still little more than a one man band, more a cult founded on Nigel Farage as its showman but hardly a party more of a joke that leaves a bad taste in one’s mouth – the more you know of UKIP the more corrupt and odious one realises they are.

Hi,
further details to come later but it is a lovely day out & UKIP become ever less significant in domestic politics as they have zero MPs and little hope of ever getting any and very few councillors out of the many 1,000s in the UK; of the 149 elected a significant number have jumped ship many on the grounds of overt stupidity others due to their racist views and yet others even some in office still are marginalised by their criminality – not to mention those who have fallen out or seen through UKIP’s leader & his claque!
Don’t forget  Nigel Farage, Graham Booth, Stuart Agnew, David Bannerman, Jeffrey Titford, Mike Nattrass, Derek Clark, John Wittacker, Mark Croucher, Tom Wise & various Councillors have fallen foul of British Courts regarding money or have been forced to repay substantial sums of tax payers’ money perloined from the EU or have been investigated by OLAF and either found guilty or at least not exhonourated!
Details later.Back later!

Ukip faces inquiry

into abuse of party funds

Nigel Farage is hoping for a breakthrough at the general election next year

·        

FARAGE, Nigel 84

Nigel Farage is hoping for a breakthrough at the general election next year PA

Rachel SylvesterAlice Thomson and Francis Elliott

Last updated at 12:01AM, March 8 2014

Nigel Farage faces an official inquiry into allegations that Ukip improperly diverted taxpayers’ money to fund its political operations.

Ukip staff were instructed to send invoices to a European body for work done in Britain. A whistleblower has told The Times that this meant that money was diverted back to the party’s headquarters, apparently against parliamentary rules.

The allegations are set to trigger an official “misuse-of-funds” investigation into Ukip before the critical European Parliament elections.

Mr Farage hopes that victory on May 22 will provide enough momentum for Ukip to achieve a breakthrough at the general election next year. That prospect, however, has brought greater scrutiny both of Ukip’s funding and its claim to be a political insurgency.

Ukip’s MEPs have received more than £2.4 million in allowances and expenses since their election in 2009, not including travel, despite having one of the worst attendance records of any party. However, the party’s alleged misuse of additional funds, which it receives as a member of a political grouping, the EFD, threatens to cause a huge embarrassment.

European Parliament rules state that public money paid to fund Europe-wide political groups such as the EFD may not “be used to finance political parties at national and European level”. However, a former member of the Ukip press office in London claimed that staff were instructed to invoice the EFD group in Brussels. The whistleblower said: “I was paid by the EFD group in the European Parliament, even though I worked exclusively for Ukip in the UK. The money was paid into my bank account directly from the EFD Group.”

The whistleblower knew of three other people paid in this way, even though they too worked only for the national party. “It was my understanding that the press office had been funded this way for some time and continued to be so after I left.”

The Times has seen evidence that two other members of Ukip staff were paid directly from EU funds in 2012 and 2013. The Vice-President of the European Parliament, Edward McMillan-Scott, said that he was referring the evidence of alleged misuse to its governing body, the Bureau, which meets on Monday.

“This appears to be a misuse of funds, which would be improper,” Mr Macmillan-Scott, a Liberal Democrat MEP for Yorkshire and Humberside, said.

“I will raise this with the Bureau and ask the relevant authorities to look into it. On the face of it, it looks as though this contravenes the rules of the European Parliament. This is taxpayer’s money and should not be diverted to political parties, in the UK or anywhere else,” he said.

“This is a party which promised to be transparent and not to use slush funds. This looks like double standards and needs to be investigated before the European elections so that the public can make up their mind.”

Ukip said in a statement last night: “Ukip MEPs are careful to observe European parliamentary rules when spending resources on advancing the goal of British withdrawal. Ukip has always worked hard to ensure that demarcations between EFD employees and party employees are properly observed. Ukip MEPs work for withdrawal from the EU just as they promised the voters that they would when elected in 2009.

“Ukip has from the outset been the biggest constituent part of the EFD group and Nigel Farage is the group leader. It is wholly legitimate and within the rules for some EFD staff to work out of London and indeed staff from other groups that include other British political parties do the same.

“After the rapid growth of the party, Ukip has now put in place a bi-annual review as an extra check to ensure that staff responsibilities remain appropriately demarcated and that the actual work patterns of staff remain consistent.”

If it is found to have broken the rules, Ukip may have to pay back the cash. Two years ago two MEPs had to return £37,000 that they had improperly diverted to national party workers.

Yet Another UKIP Councillor Screws Up as Cllt. Donna Edmunds states her views on fair trade!

Ukip Councillor Says Business Owners Should Be Able To Refuse Women And Gays

By Posted: 05/03/2014 09:53 GMT

Update: Ukip councillor Donna Edmunds has expresssed “regret” over her remarks. Ukip has described Cllr Edmunds’ remarks as “somewhat misguided” and stressed that it does not back them.

Ukip has sparked another political furore after a local councillor said that business owners should be able to refuse to serve women and gay people.

Donna Edmunds, a councillor in Lewes, East Sussex and parliamentary candidate, wrote in a forum post: “I believe that all business owners, Christian, Muslim, gay, straight, should be allowed to withhold their services from whomever that choose whenever they choose.

“It’s their business. Why should they be forced to serve or sell to anyone?,” the Argus reported.

Edmunds made her comments after being asked to say if she agreed with Henley Ukip councillor David Silvester in blaming the recent floods on the government’s support for gay marriage, making clear that she disagreed with her party colleague on this point.

The Ukip councillor’s remarks drew condemnation from other political parties. Giles Goodall, Lib Dem Euro candidate for the South East, told HuffPostUK: “Yet again Ukip have shown that they are the nasty party when it comes to rights for women and LGBT people.”

Edmunds, who defected from the Tories to Ukip last January, expressed “regret” for making her controversial remarks.

In a statement, she said: “I regret what I wrote and can see how an essentially libertarian stance could be broadly misinterpreted. I in no way endorse any form of discrimination. I believe in cutting red tape for business and I also strongly believe in an individual’s personal and religious freedoms, but I stand against any form of prejudice.

“I hope this remark has not caused any embarrassment for the party.”

A Ukip spokesperson said: “Ms Edmunds comments appear somewhat misguided and we do not endorse the position intimated, but we believe she has apologised for the remarks.”

Edmunds is the latest in a series of Ukip councillors to cause controversy after the party was forced to distance itself from Cambridgeshire councillor Peter Lagoda over remarks during a visit to a fire station that forced one of the firefighters to officially complain.

Hi,
it is not that UKIP is unique in having bent Councillors but it is the staggering percentage of the tiny number they have that is News Worthy!Yet further proof of UKIP leadership failure and its shambolic unprofessional selection process – you only have to look at the remarkably low caliber opf its MEPs, staff, NEC, Councillors and even the shower they have lined up as prospective MEPs hand selected by the leadership for the EU elections in May!

Here is one of the longest serving, who was ditched by a meeting of his full UKIP Regional Committee as unsuitable and as a result of the facts led by his wife of inappropriate behaviour with their daughter whilst bathing with her! Yet was immediately reinstated and given a full time job by Nigel Farage!

UKIP SW must be so proud of Nigel Farage’s choice

TOWLER, Gawain 05 advert

Some may remember the hillarious comment made by Elizabeth Becket a UKIP NEC member at the time, who was on the regional committee when she tried to do Farage’s bidding with the statement:
‘But in a nice warm bath don’t all men get erections’! and bear in mind she used to be a nurse many moons ago!
Farage’s yes man who chaired the meeting was Malcolm Wood who valiantly tried to hide the corruption!

Council leader slams former mayor’s ‘hypocrisy’ over attempted land deals

Cheshire East Council to probe the conduct of Ukip councillor Brian Silvester

Councillor Brian Silvester.

A Cheshire East councillor who  has been campaigning against development in the green gap has  been trying to promote his own  open countryside land for housing, the  Chronicle can exclusively reveal.

Ukip councillor Brian Silvester has  been trying to strike a deal with Richborough Estates, a strategic land promotion company, for a 20-acre site he  owns with his brother in Shavington.

The Chronicle has obtained copies of  emails the Willaston and Rope councillor sent – from his Cheshire East  Council email account – to the company.

The emails show that Cllr Silvester,  who has been campaigning against developments in and around Crewe because, ‘maintaining the green gap is a  massive issue for residents’,  has been  trying to cash in on his own countryside  land by getting Richborough Estates to  promote it as suitable for housing.

When approached by the Chronicle  about the matter, the Willaston and  Rope councillor said it was a ‘storm in a  teacup’ because he jointly owned the  land with his brother and some of the  site, at Shavington House Farm, Crewe  Road, was brownfield. Richborough refused to promote Cllr Silvester’s land,  which could accommodate about 150  houses, for development.

In an email sent to the Ukip councillor  in September of last year, company  director Paul Campbell said: “We consider your site to be a step too far in  eroding the gap between Shavington  and Crewe.”

The email continued: “As a business  we will only pursue sites that we feel are  logical and technically sound and,  frankly, we believe your site would  cause significant landscape impact.”

He suggested if the councillor  was unable to find anyone else  willing to put in an application for him  ‘maybe you could put an advert in the  Crewe Chronicle if you’re struggling’.

The first email the Chronicle has seen  in relation to this is dated November 29,  2012, and was sent from Cllr Silvester’s  Cheshire East email account.

It is addressed to Richborough director Paul Campbell and reads: “Paul,  Wain Homes have won their appeal to  build 80 dwellings off Rope Lane in the  Green Gap. Are you still interested in  our land on the Shavington side of the  bypass in light of this rather surprising  decision? With best wishes, Brian.”

On December 3, when the company  director replied he might be interested,  Cllr Silvester emailed – again from his  Cheshire East account – “I think there  is a good window of opportunity for our  site now but we need to move quickly  before it closes. In light of that we have interest from a number of developers, so speed is of the essence.”

On December 7, 2012, Cllr Silvester  emailed again: “Paul, Would you be  interested in putting in an application  now?”

On January 18, 2013, he emailed yet  again: “Paul, What level of option fee  and contribution towards our legal  costs would you be willing to offer?  What period of option would you require? Would you apply now for all the  20 acres or for a smaller area?”

Richborough Estates declined in  September of last year to go ahead with  any deal because of the sensitivity of the  site and after learning Cllr Silvester had  written a letter to Willaston residents  asking them to object to its (Richborough’s) application off Moorfields.

Mr Campbell emailed Cllr Silvester to  say: “Given your objection letter to all  the residents of Willaston asking them  to object to our application off Moorfields, I am afraid that I am going to  have to decline promoting your land  at Shavington. This is partly because you have gone out to try and  seek people to object to our application on the grounds of green  gap when your site is also green  gap, which is a rather inconsistent  and self-defeating  position to the one  taken on your own  land, but also because we consider  your site to be a  step too far in  eroding the  gap between  Shavington  and  Crewe.”

 

Councillor said he wouldn’t stop his brother cashing in

Ukip councillor Brian Silvester has told  the Chronicle the Shavington site in question is jointly owned and it would not be  right to stop his brother from trying to cash  in on the land.

Cllr Silvester also claimed the site is  partly brownfield ‘and development is encouraged on brownfield sites’.

When the Chronicle pointed out the rest  was green gap, the councillor again repeated he owned it in partnership with his  brother.

“The land is not in my sole ownership,”  he said. “I can’t stop my brother doing what  he wants to do.”

When asked by the Chronicle if he was a  50/50 partner with his brother, Cllr Silvester said he was.

When it was then suggested that it would  be difficult for his brother to go ahead with  a scheme without his consent if they were  equal partners, the Willaston and Rope  councillor said: “It would not be right of me  to stop my brother doing what he wants to  do. That would be wrong. If he wants to  proceed that’s up to him.”

Cllr Silvester insisted he was justified in  campaigning against countryside development when he was trying to do the same  on his own land.

He re-iterated part of his site brownfield.

“I’m supporting my residents to defend  themselves against the unwanted development in the green gap and on my land,  that is the land owned jointly with my  brother, there has been no application so I  don’t see what the problem is,” he said.

He added: “I think it’s a bit of a storm in a  teacup because there’s no planning application [on his land] and even if there was  I’m only a part owner and part of it is  brownfield.”

The Chronicle asked Cllr Silvester why, if  his brother was the main person behind  the idea, it had been him [Cllr Silvester]  who had made all the contact with the  company.

He said: “I don’t think my brother liked  using email at that time.”

He insisted he had done nothing wrong in  using a council email address to try to  conduct private business involving planning.

“That was only for convenience,” he said,  adding the council allowed its members to  use their council email for personal use.

 

Developer confirms contact with councillor

Riichborough Estates director Paul Campbell  has confirmed to the Chronicle the emails  between himself and Cllr Brian Silvester are  genuine. The Chronicle contacted Mr Campbell  to check the authenticity of the documents before speaking to the Ukip councillor.

Mr Campbell confirmed they were genuine exchanges between himself and Cllr Silvester and  then explained how his company had first approached the Cheshire East councillor about the  land three years ago.

“We would have sent out a whole raft of  letters at the same time to landowners on  the edge of Crewe and the villages,” said  Mr Campbell.

“We get details from the Land Registry about who owns it.”

He said some people respond, others do not.

“Brian got in touch in 2011 to  say he was keen,” said Mr Campbell.

The company director said  everything went quiet for a while  ‘then he started chasing me again  when the Wain Homes decision  came out’.

Mr Campbell said by then he had  decided on another site and when he  learned Cllr Silvester was also campaigning actively against his company  over a Willaston scheme he was  astounded.

“We always found it puzzling – the  stance he was taking against our application when his actions spoke so differently on his own interests,” he said.

 

Councillor fought applications saying green gap was ‘massive issue’

CHESHIRE East councillor Brian Silvester has expressed his  opposition to several planning  applications because they were  in the green gap, despite trying  to secure a deal on his own  Shavington land.

In May of last year he told the  Chronicle he was concerned  about Gladman’s application for  95 homes on land at Audlem  Road in Audlem and an application for a site off Newcastle  Road in Willaston which was  put forward by Emery Planning  Partnership.

With regard to the Newcastle  Road site, Cllr Silvester said he  objected because ‘maintaining  the green gap is a massive issue  for residents’.

This week Cllr Silvester insisted he had done nothing  wrong.

“The emails are well over a  year ago and quite dated.

“I have been working very  hard in the area inviting people  to object to their (Richborough’s) application.

“I have done it for the appeal  and they’re trying to stop me  doing what I should be doing for  my constituents.”

Cllr Silvester also emailed the  Chronicle on Friday to say: “Further to our phone chat, [between  himself and reporter Belinda  Ryan] we [Cllr Silvester and his  brother] own 12 acres to the  north of the A500.

“The developers of Gresty  Oaks approached us to include   our land as part of their housing  development and we declined  because that land is entirely in  the green gap and has no brown  field land at all.”

A few minutes later he emailed  the Chronicle again to add:  “Richborough are having a go at  me because they do not like the  very vigorous way I am opposing their application/appeal for  170 houses  off Moorfields, Willaston, on behalf of my constituents, who are vehemently opposed to the application. Instead  of making the case for their application they choose to attack  me personally, when all I am doing is to defend the interests of  my residents as I have always  done and will continue to do so.”

Cllr Silvester, the former  deputy leader of Cheshire East,  who is also an ex-leader of  Crewe and Nantwich Borough  Council and a former Crewe and  Nantwich mayor, quit the Conservative party in November  2012.

At the time his political future  was being discussed by the  party, following his criminal  conviction the month before.

He and his brother Colin were  fined £45,000 and ordered to pay  £22,000 costs after pleading  guilty at Chester Crown Court  to a catalogue of fire safety  breaches at the building they  rented out as bedsits on Crewe  Road in Shavington.

At the time the court heard  from prosecutor Bernard Thorogood that when fire officers  had carried out an inspection of  the property ‘the risk of serious  injury was so significant that  immediate action needed to be  taken and a prohibition notice  was issued. The circumstances  were such that a fire would have  spread rapidly throughout the  premises’.

Cllr Silvester – who once stood  as a parliamentary candidate for  the Tories – refused to stand  down from Cheshire East despite numerous calls for his  resignation because of his criminal conviction.

He represented the people of  Willaston and Rope for several  months as an Independent before joining Ukip in June of last  year.

 

Council to probe councillor’s conduct

Cheshire East Council has  asked the Chronicle to hand  over the correspondence we have  showing Cllr Brian Silvester used  his council email to try to conduct  personal business with a land developer.

The Chronicle contacted Cheshire  East for a statement after seeing the  emails. Cheshire East Council has  since asked us for a ‘copy of the  dossier as the leader will want to  pass that to the monitoring officer’.

This means the council will now  consider whether or not the Ukip  councillor has broken the council’s  code of conduct. Cllr Silvester has  not acted illegally in any way.

Cheshire East leader Michael  Jones was incensed when he was  approached by the Chronicle. “To  me, this would appear to be  very  hypocritical of Cllr Silvester and I’m  really disappointed for the people of  Willaston,” said Cllr Jones.

“I will now refer this to the monitoring officer because of him using  Cheshire East equipment.”
