The Great Ukip Racism Debate – Debunking the Six Main Myths

Posted: 06/05/2014 15:43

Is Ukip racist? Or is it merely a party that is especially attractive to what David Cameron once called “fruitcakes, loonies and closet racists”?

Or, perhaps, is it neither? Has it been unfairly smeared and demonised? On Sunday, Ukip leader Nigel Farage told the BBC’s Andrew Marr he was “adamant that we’re a non-racist party”.

Guess what? Plenty of influential people on the liberal-left agree with him. Former Labour home secretary Jacqui Smith says she is “uneasy about the suggestions that they are racist and the implication that, therefore so are the likely Ukip voters”. Liberal Conspiracy blogger Sunny Hundal attacks those on the left “offering up blanket accusations of racism” aimed at Ukip. “Do the majority of Ukip voters endorse racism and is Ukip an openly racist movement?” asks academic Matthew Goodwin, author of a new book on the anti-Europe party. “No.”

In an attempt to shield Ukip from the charge of racism, these liberal-lefties have, wittingly or unwittingly, joined with both Farage and sections of the right-wing press to promulgate some pretty dodgy arguments, some pretty dangerous myths, that are worth tackling head on:

1) Only left-liberal, metropolitan-types in Hampstead think Ukip is racist

Not quite. A quarter of voters (27%), according to a recent YouGov poll, say Ukip is a party “with racist views” and “with many racist members”.

Only a quarter (26%) of voters give Ukip a clean bill of health and say Ukip is “not racist at all”. A pretty damning figure, I would argue. Meanwhile, a plurality of voters (35%) agreed Ukip wasn’t “racist”, in their view, but did “seem to attract some candidates or supporters with racist, extreme or odd views”.

Also, Michael Heseltine – who, last time I checked, was a Conservative peer and former Conservative cabinet minister – has said he believes Ukip is a racist party. Jeremy Hunt, a serving Conservative cabinet minister, has attacked Ukip for “attracting” racist candidates.

Oh, and the founder and former leader of Ukip, Dr Alan Sked, told the Sunday Times in September 2013 that, under Nigel Farage’s leadership, the party he created had become “anti-immigrant, anti-intellectual and racist”.

2) It’s unfair to blame Ukip as a whole for the racist comments of a tiny minority of candidates

First, is it really only a ‘tiny minority’? A few ‘rotten apples’? The last few weeks alone have revealed a bunch of Ukip candidates and activists who, among other things, told Lenny Henry to go and live in a ‘black country’; said the UK has a “pro Islamic” media; called Islam an “organised crime under religious camouflage”; “liked” the BNP on Facebook; described EDL members as “honest, normal people”; implied the case of murdered black teenager Stephen Lawrence had received disproportionate amounts of media coverage; suggested Nigerians were criminals; declared Mo Farah to be African and not British. As a Spectator blogger noted: “[T]he scandals are so frequent you have to conclude that it is not the rotten apple that needs throwing out but the whole stinking barrel.”

Second, it isn’t just a bunch of fringe figures in Ukip saying awful, bigoted stuff. Racism, xenophobia and anti-Muslim bigotry seems to be tolerated at the top, and not just the bottom, of the party. Why, after all, did Ukip’s leaders, and hundreds of members, “roar with laughter” and “clap” as comedian Paul Eastwood “took swipes at Indians, Muslims and Poles” at a gala dinner at the party’s spring conference in February?

In fact, consider the following four individuals and their remarks:

(a) Gerard Batten, Ukip’s chief whip and immigration spokesman, has demanded Britain’s Muslims sign up to a special code of conduct and called for a ban on the building of new mosques – which is a policy backed by both the BNP and the EDL.

(b) Godfrey Bloom, the party’s former economics spokesman, who served for almost a decade as a Ukip MEP and shared a flat with his friend and ally Farage, referred to the developing world as “bongo bongo land”.

(c) Lord Pearson, the senior Ukip peer and former party leader, has said the UK faces a “growing threat of Islamism” because “the Muslims are breeding ten times faster than us”. He added: “I don’t know at what point they reach such a number we are no longer able to resist the rest of their demands.”

(d) And, of course, then there is the party’s current leader, cheeky-chappy, beer-drinking, ‘regular guy’ Nigel Farage. Asked in a recent Guardian interview whether or not people should be “wary” of Romanian families moving into their street, the Ukip leader replied: “Well, of course, yeah.”

Change the word ‘Romanian’ to ‘Nigerian’ or ‘Indian’ or even ‘Jewish’ and ask yourself whether or not you’d consider Farage’s answer to be racist or not.

3) Romanian is a nationality not a race, so being rude about Romanians isn’t racist

Yes, it is actually. The Crown Prosecution Service (CPS), in its guidance on “racist and religious crime”, defines a “racial group” as “any group of people who are defined by reference to their race, colour, nationality (including citizenship) or ethnic or national origin”. [Emphasis added.]

As it happens, even Farage agrees with this definition – when the Ukip leader was heckled and attacked by Scottish protesters on a visit to Edinburgh in May 2013, he described his opponents as “deeply racist with a total hatred for the English”.

Hello, kettle? This is pot. You’re black.

4) You can’t call Ukip racist as they have black and ethnic minority (BME) candidates and activists

This is what I’d call the political party’s equivalent of the ‘My best friend is black/gay/Jewish’ defence. And it is an equally hollow and absurd method of trying to deflect or rebut charges of racism.

Consider: the BNP has had both Sikh and Jewish members. Does anyone sane seriously believe this inoculates Nick Griffin’s gang from the charge of racism or anti-Semitism? Really?

(On a side note, the father of the Ukip candidate who denied his son was racist – despite the latter’s tweets about “foreigners and weirdos” and rape by “Asian boys” – on the grounds that he came home “at 10.30pm with a curry ” can’t be topped in terms of originality – or bizarreness.)

5) Ukip has gone out of its way to reject overtures from the far-right in Europe

So far, maybe. In today’s Telegraph, however, Geert Wilders, leader of Holland’s far-right Party for Freedom, predicts that Ukip will join his party and France’s National Front (FN) in a new ‘European Freedom Alliance’ in the wake of the Euro elections later this month. FN’s Marine Le Pen has said she could happily work with UKIP, with “open arms”, and declared Farage’s ideas and views “very similar” to those of her (far-right) party.

Then there is the Europe of Freedom and Democracy (EFD) group in the European Parliament, in which Ukip sits and of which Farage is co-chair. The EFD group includes representatives from a variety of unsavoury, immigrant-bashing, far-right parties, including the Danish People’s Party, the True Finns Party and Italy’s Lega Nord. Farage’s fellow co-chair, Francesco Speroni of Lega Nord, has described far-right terrorist and mass murderer Anders Breivik as someone whose “ideas are in defence of western civilisation”. Lega Nord leader Umberto Bossi has referred to non-white immigrants as “bingo bingos” and suggested the police should open fire on boats bringing African asylum-seekers to Italy. Does Farage have a view on Bossi? Or Speroni? Or his alliance with both?

6) To call Ukip the ‘BNP in blazers’ is unfair and unwarranted

Really? Then why has Farage called on BNP voters to “come and vote for us” and boasted of his pride in having “taken a third of the BNP vote directly from them”. Since when did the attracting of voters from a far-right, racist party become a source of pride?

As academics Heinz Brandenburg and Anders Widfeldt, authors of a recent study on the overlap between the BNP and Ukip, have pointed out: “Nobody has a more positive view of the BNP than UKIP voters, and nobody has a more positive view of UKIP than BNP voters.” They conclude: “[T]he BNP and UKIP fit rather neatly into separate subgroups of the same, extreme right, party family – the BNP into a more radical one and UKIP into a more moderate grouping.”

Also: why did the BNP approach Ukip in 2008 and propose forming a pact between the two parties – a potential alliance which Farage, to his credit, rejected? What made Ukip so attractive to the BNP high command? And what made the BNP so attractive to the two members of Ukip’s national executive committee who were in favour of the pact?

For the facts CLICK HERE

Is there any other mainstream party in the UK that the BNP has asked to do a deal with? And which has BNP sympathisers on its national executive committee?

In conclusion, whether or not Ukip is a racist party, rather than, say, a party containing racists, is a debate for the pedants and the literalists – the bigger questions are: what is it about Ukip that attracts so many racists and bigots in the first place? How do senior party figures justify their racist, xenophobic and Islamophobic comments? Why does Ukip sit in the European Parliament with race-baiting, Muslim-baiting parties? Why are BNP voters – and, previously, the BNP leadership – so keen on Ukip? Why did the EDL endorse Ukip? Why does Le Pen want to welcome Farage with “open arms” into her far-right, pan-European alliance?

To turn a blind eye to such questions is not just irresponsible but dangerous.

Hi,
having spent a considerable amount of time over the weekend seeking documents and details of the hypocricy of UKIP’s MEP William Dartmouth and having written several pages of detail on the matter for this blog:
DARTMOUTH, William Earl of 03
In searching the internet for further relevant data to add I came across work by AutonomousMinds thaty had already been written and published and the work was even more detailed than was the article I was working on.
Realising that I still had a considerable amount of time and research ahead of me and being habitually lazy and aware, from my work on the subject so far, that the article at AutonomousMinds his facts on the subject were clearly accurate it came to mind that I could save a great deal of further work and time by scrapping my article and utilising that of AutonomousMinds’
DARTMOUTH, William Earl of 04
And so herewith:

Is UKIP’s William Dartmouth MEP using an offshore company to conceal involvement in a wind turbine development?

Published 07/04/2014
Following on from yesterday’s post, the curious story surrounding UKIP MEP William Dartmouth and allegations that his land is the site of a proposed wind farm development – in direct contradiction with UKIP policy – has become even more interesting. This is a detailed post.We have managed to obtain a letter that was sent by Lord Dartmouth’s solicitor to UKIP chairman, Steve Crowther (below).

Re: Slaithwaite Moor Planning Application

We act for William Dartmouth.

We have acted on his behalf for the last fourteen years in relation to his properties including land which he owns around the town of Slaithwaite, West Yorkshire.

He has requested that we write to you in relation to the matter above.

A planning application has recently been made by Valley Wind to establish wind turbines on Slaithwaite Moor. Valley Wind has served the statutory third party Notices on various parties (including the landowner) and including William Dartmouth.

The title to Slaithwaite Moor is registered at the Land Registry. The registered proprietor is a company, Rosscroft Limited.

Valley Wind holds an Option over part of the land comprised in this registered title which we believe gives Valley Wind the option to take a lease of the relevant land to establish turbines if planning permission is granted.

I can confirm William Dartmouth has no interest in this land.

By the way, William Dartmouth does own adjacent land.

It may therefore be that this is why a third party notice was served on him. Yours sincerely

Tim Haggie
Latimer Hinks

View this document on Scribd
It states that William Dartmouth does not have any interest in the land where the wind turbines will be sited, rather the land’s ‘proprietor’ is Rosscroft Limited. However Mr Tim Haggie, solicitor at Latimer Hinks, does say that Dartmouth owns land adjacent to the site and that is perhaps why a ‘third party notice’ was served on him. It is interesting to note the address of the local office that Rosscroft Limited uses in the area…
By coincidence it just so happens that another local firm is based at that address…
Backing up Mr Haggie’s assertion about Rosscroft is a document that shows Dartmouth transferred land on Slaithwaite Moor to Rosscroft Limited on 10th February 2011.
However, Lord Dartmouth must be a very generous fellow because he transferred the land for zero consideration. In other words he gave it away to Rosscroft for nothing. And we are not talking about a plot the size of a domestic garden here, the land in question is shown edged in red and the Cupwith Reservoir is surrounded by a blue box…
But the situation becomes more confused thanks to a letter from Carter Jonas, Lord Dartmouth’s land agent, in April 2013 to campaigners who were seeking to prevent plans to drain Cupwith Reservoir. As you can see in the circled section, Carter Jonas have been instructed to explain to the recipient of the letter that his comments and remarks in a previous letter regarding the ownership of Slaithwaite Moor by Dartmouth are ‘misconceived’.
Yet in the same letter, two years after Dartmouth transferred ownership of Slaithwaite to Rosscroft Limited, Carter Jonas make this astonishing comment…
If William Dartmouth had transferred ownership of Slaithwaite Moor two years earlier, and had no direct or indirect interest in the land, why on earth are his land agents saying that Dartmouth is sensitive to the concerns of people who did not want the reservoir drained and has given considerable thought as to ‘how he could best accommodate what you are seeking to achieve’? How can a man with no interest or ownership over the land in question accommodate anything to do with its use or ownership?We have seen above on the TP1 form that William Dartmouth transferred ownership of Slaithwaite Moor including Cupwith Reservoir in February 2011. The documentary evidence is clear.

As such we have to pose the following question… if Rosscroft Limited became the owner of the land in February 2011, why is it that in August 2011, a memorandum written by consultancy Mott MacDonald asserts the following?

If this is incorrect why was it not corrected either by William Dartmouth or Rosscroft Limited?Indeed, this takes us back to yesterday’s post and that wind farm planning application. The applicants, Valley Wind Co-operative were duty bound to inform owners of the land on which they wished to develop a wind farm that they were putting in an application. Owners and tenants have to be listed on a form in the application known as an Article 12 Certificate. There are four types, A, B, C and D, neatly explained here.

A Certificate B is completed and submitted when the planning applicant (in this case Valley Wind) know the names of all the owners of the land upon which a planning application is being made. On the wind farm planning application, there is a Certificate B which clearly names Rosscroft Limited and William Dartmouth, both care of Carter Jonas in York, as an owners (or tenants) of the land concerned.

dartmouth_owner
Despite Carter Jonas evidently being made aware that Valley Wind understand William Dartmouth to be an owner of this land, the planning application has not been corrected or amended. Given that such incorrect information is valid reason for a planning application to be rejected, it seems very curious that no correction has been made to what William Dartmouth has said is an error and what his solicitor has said is a third party notice.We have not yet been able to check with the Huddersfield Daily Examiner if William Dartmouth had requested a correction to their December 2012 story that identifies him as the owner of Cupwith Reservoir, nearly two years after the transfer to Rosscroft Limited. But the stories still make the assertion.

So the question is, why have Carter Jonas and William Dartmouth apparently made no efforts to correct the record which has seen the media and even their paid consultants identify Dartmouth as the land owner at Cupwith Reservoir? It’s an odd one.

We invited UKIP to comment on our story but have not yet received a response.

We also contacted William Dartmouth and invited him to comment on the ownerships and relationships concerning the land in question. He did not want to answer any questions from an anonymous blogger hiding behind a pseudonym and was more concerned in getting a name, however in the end he did email us the following:

But – to be crystal clear – I do not own the land .

So, we know Rosscroft Limited owns the land. But who owns Rosscroft? It seems the directors of the company have been all or mainly ‘paid for’ names on paper only who have directorships in a large number of companies in different fields. But there was a sudden and dramatic change of ownership last year that fitted into an interesting timeline of events.

In February 2013, pre-application advice was sought from Kirkless Council to discuss its views on the proposed wind farm development and whether it would have a possibility of being approved.

Shortly after that process, without explanation, the long standing directors of Rosscroft Limited were suddenly replaced by a professional director based in Monaco called Ian Frederick Ledger and a company based in the Bahamas called Ambassador Directors Limited. This change means that Rosscroft’s human owners on the other side of the Atlantic cannot be easily identified.
With Rosscroft now enjoying the benefits of offshore privacy, the formal planning application for the wind farm was submitted by Valley Wind.
It’s a happy set of coincidences that just by chance seems to have seen Rosscroft adopt a very deep interest in privacy for its beneficial owners – just before it was to become involved in plans for wind turbines on land that we are told was formerly owned by a UKIP MEP, whose party opposes them.Rosscroft was remarkably fortunate to have been gifted land that within a couple of years would be considered ripe for lavishly rewarding wind turbines; while William Dartmouth seems to have been remarkably fortunate to no longer own land on which an application for wind turbines – against UKIP party policy – was soon to be submitted. And of course there is also the incredible coincidence that both Rosscroft and Dartmouth share the same solicitors and agents! It’s a small world.

Curious people will no doubt be asking questions about all this. Here are some that need to be answered:

Given these series of events, do William Dartmouth or the Dartmouth family have any financial interest or share ownership in Rosscroft Limited?
Has William Dartmouth ever created a bare or discretionary trust where the trust property includes all or part of Rosscroft Limited, or any of the land transferred to Rosscroft Limited?
Why have neither Carter Jonas nor William Dartmouth immediately corrected what must be an inaccurate planning application, especially when his solicitor said as long ago as January that the Dartmouth has no interest in the land he is listed on Certificate B as owning?
Why did neither Carter Jonas nor William Dartmouth immediately correct the Mott MacDonald memo and report stating the Earl of Dartmouth is the owner of the land well after the transfer date?
Why have local media stories citing William Dartmouth as the owner of land he transferred to Rosscroft not been corrected?
If William Dartmouth, despite not being the owner of Cupwith Reservior and having no direct or indirect interest in it, was influential enough to bring about an offer by its owner to give away the reservoir to campaigners who did not want it drained, does he not have the same influence to prevent the wind turbines being constructed on the same land?
As a UKIP MEP and stated adjacent land owner, with apparent influence and concern in the local neighbourhood, will William Dartmouth be submitting a formal objection to the wind farm planning application?
Will William Dartmouth or his solicitor make available the ‘third party notice’ he is said to have received in respect of being an adjacent land owner to the application site?
Does William Dartmouth or his family have any direct or indirect interest or share ownership in Ambassador Directors Ltd?
Is UKIP’s William Dartmouth MEP using an offshore company to conceal involvement in a wind turbine development?

The UKIP MEP, family land, a windfarm application, a party denial and EU money

Published 06/04/2014
UPDATED BELOW: An interesting story has been submitted by a reader, concerning a controversial planned wind farm development in Yorkshire that could call into question the position one of UKIP’s highest profile MEPs who is also a candidate in next year’s General Election.
slaithwaite
The name of UKIP’s William Dartmouth MEP appears as an owner or tenant of land on a planning application that was submitted to Kirklees Council last year, to build three 100m wind turbines on unspoilt countryside next to Cupwith Reservior (location shown above) near Huddersfield, where the scheme applicant, Valley Wind Co-operative, is receiving funding for the project from the EU’s European Regional Development Fund.What makes this matter curious is that William Dartmouth’s office has denied that he is directly or indirectly linked to the application site.

All of the the information about the proposed windfarm development was sent to Nigel Farage, and a member of Farage’s staff eventually responded stating that Dartmouth’s office had replied claiming he wasn’t linked directly or indirectly. This is curious given this screenshot of the land ownership section of the planning application:

dartmouth_owner
What also appears to put a question mark against Dartmouth’s denial, while giving the accuracy of the information above further weight, is a story from 2012 that demonstrates land ownership and three-way linkage between Dartmouth, Carter Jonas and Rosscroft Ltd (whose name appears at the top of the screenshot). The story concerned a planning application to drain Cupwith Reservior. The applicant was Rosscroft Ltd, the agent was Carter Jonas LLP, and the owner of the reservoir is the Dartmouth Estate of one Earl of Dartmouth (aka William Dartmouth) – an assertion reported by the Huddersfield Daily Examiner when reporting that Dartmouth’s appeal against the rejection of the application had also been lost. There is no evidence the media have been asked to correct their assertion.As if further evidence is required that where there is Rosscroft / Carter Jonas there seems to be Dartmouth, there is an entirely unrelated planning matter, where William Dartmouth was the named applicant for planning permission, with his chosen agent was Carter Jonas LLP. The links are clear.

dartmouth_jonas
Given all this information, it seems that UKIP has accepted Dartmouth’s denial without checking the facts for themselves, calling into question yet again the party’s internal processes for dealing with complaints or reports of conflict of interest among its elected officials.UPDATE: We have been sent a copy of a letter that was sent to Nigel Farage personally, just after one of the recent debates with Nick Clegg, from an opponent of the wind farm. It includes the following paragraph which suggests that William Legge (Legge being the family name of the Earl of Dartmouth) stands to gain in the region of £60,000 per annum if three wind turbines are erected on his land…

So I was delighted on your stance against wind turbines but have to point out the total hypocrisy of your MEP William Legge who is touting his land out for a wind farm as one of the above applications. This land is protected moorland and 300 meters away from a National Trust Bird sanctuary. It is estimated he will receive £20k ground rent per 100m turbine (there are 3 currently planned) – i.e. £60k per year. This is in total opposition to UKIP’s manifesto. I cannot see how he can be a UKIP MEP and at the same time pursue this course of action in his private life.

3rd April 2014
Dear Mr Farage, A neighbour of mine has I believe sent a similar note, I have been planning to do so for some time
but last night’s televised debate between yourself and Nick Clegg prompted me to do so.
Congratulations on a consummate performance against Mr Clegg by the way.

My particular concern as a rural resident in West Yorkshire is that in the past 18 months we have
been subjected to 12 separate applications for wind turbines within 1 mile of our property. Around
70% are being approved despite being situated in a green belt wildlife corridor due to the very
special need to reduce our country’s carbon emissions apparently. These are absolutely ruining the
countryside, driving residents mad with noise and flicker, decimating the rare birds and also bats and
making a few rich land owners richer…. Unfortunately they are not making a dent in our carbon
footprint, just our pockets.

So I was delighted on your stance against wind turbines but have to point out the total hypocrisy of
your MEP William Legge who is touting his land out for a wind farm as one of the above applications.
This land is protected moorland and 300 meters away from a National Trust Bird sanctuary. It is
estimated he will receive £20k ground rent per 100m turbine (there are 3 currently planned) – i.e.
£60k per year. This is in total opposition to UKIP’s manifesto. I cannot see how he can be a UKIP
MEP and at the same time pursue this course of action in his private life.

What I liked about yourself was a move away from the mealy mouthed public schoolboys of the
other 3 parties but I am afraid I see this as MEP Legge acting in the same way as the main 3 parties
with his own self-interest placed firmly to the fore and any principles trailing way behind. I strongly
ask that you discuss this with MEP Legge. As this is in the public domain surely if this continues it is
but a matter of time before this comes to the notice of the wider media and could severely damage
the credibility of your party.

Best regards
A concerned resident
Huddersfield

It is worth noting that David Cameron’s father-in-law, Sir Reginald Sheffield is often referred to as an example of a land owning rent seeker, trousering an reported £350,000 a year for turbines on his land. Is the only difference between the Sheffields and the Dartmouths a mere matter of scale?In addition to wanting the UK to leave the EU, UKIP has a policy against onshore wind turbines. So, having one of its senior MEPs set to benefit financially from money given in grants by the EU, for the installation on his land of three giant turbines – that the party’s policy formally opposes – would be a serious conflict of interest and a likely resigning matter. Further, that UKIP does not seem to have diligently investigated the reports sent to them by concerned residents in the area of the planned windfarm that one of their senior MEPs had this conflict of interest, seems to be another failure of internal process. UKIP has questions to answer about that.

But for now, William Dartmouth has questions to answer.

Why is it that he appears to have been untruthful about his interest in the land where the turbines are planned?

As a clearly stated owner or tenant of the land, as shown on the official planning applications, what does he stand to gain if the application is approved and Valley Wind Co-operative build the turbines?

I think we should be told.

UKIP have been contacted and asked if they wish to respond to this story.

FOR THE RECORD – A STATEMENT OF FACTS

Posted by Greg Lance - Watkins (Greg_L-W) on 20/03/2014

FOR THE RECORD – A STATEMENT OF FACTS

Hi,

For the record – despite the obfuscation, dissembling and outright lies of those trying to hide the truth about UKIP, as it is – It is of absolutely no consequence how many read this blog or this web site or my Twitter or my postings around the internet and elsewhere, just like UKIP membership numbers are of no consequence just as it is irrelevant how many watch a UKIP video in America, China or even France – it is a matter of the caliber of those who read the entries NOT numbers.
 
This web site and all its entries are posted as an archive and if ONE person of influence reads it whether media, politician or individual and it leads to cleaning up & professionalising UKIP & giving it some ethical gravitas and consequence thus making it fit for purpose as a party, which British citizens would be proud to join to Leave-The-EU, it has served its purpose.
 
This blog is an archive available to all and made as accurate as possible, clearly differentiating between my opinions and values and factual reportage of UKIP.
 
As is clear: Any error of fact is always corrected, if brought to my attention, and comments are always published – for as long as they are compliant with the terms clearly stated as follows:

We welcome comments but reserve the right to moderate & refuse libelous or offensive comments and those we choose to delete when written by unidentifiable individuals hidden in anonymity in a cowardly manner to defame or abuse.

No comment has EVER been barred or deleted, which is genuine & clearly authored by a named & identifiable individual.

I have NEVER had personal aspirations politically, nor have I ever stood for office; Further I have NEVER joined or been a member or been funded by any political party, faction or similar organisation.

I have also never had a wife or mistress funded from the public purse, unlike some in UKIP! Nor, unlike a number of UKIP MEPs have I ever been found guilts of fraud or ordered to repay money obtained from the public purse fraudulently or used fraudulently nor ever had an expenses claim investigated or rejected unlike UKIP MEPs, nor unlike UKIP MEPs have I ever beentaken to Court & found guilty of fraud and sentenced to prison or any other punishment.

With Regard To JUNIUS

From my conversations with Team Junius:

I gather their aims were largely similar to mine, as was their aim to inform and provide an archive of facts in support of UKIP becoming fit for purpose, to lead to Leave-The-EU, which clearly it currently is not, as it tends to represent its own personal ambitions rather than British self determination, values and ethics.

At the moment Junius team have largely stopped addressing UKIP’s problems, in the belief that it is unlikely that UKIP will have any consequential influence on domestic politics after their failure in the local elections of 2013 when out of over 1,700 seats in which they stood candidates a mere 147 were elected and already they are falling by the wayside and or resigning due in part to lack of vetting, lack of professionalism and in some cases over racism, inappropriate behaviour and convictions for theft etc.

UKIP’s achievements are so clearly the product of a single individual that Junius has stood back from their role exposing UKIP’s ineptitude and dishonesty as unfit for purpose as to continue putting their own jobs at risk is no longer of sufficient consequence in the light of UKIP’s failure to obtain MPs, Police Crime Commissioners, Mayors or any other role of any gravitas or significance in domestic politics in 20 years.

Team Junius, I am told, will possibly re-enter the position of political commentary if the situation alters and UKIP becomes of greater relevance in UK domestic policy rather than self serving also rans!

Although I have heard from members of Team Junius they and others have passed on the UKIP lies that it is claimed that actions and threats of prosecution by UKIP forced Junius to cease posting.

I can assure readers that the UKIP spin is a pack of lies particularly as they have absolutely no idea who the members of Team Junius are nor are UKIP able to identify a single solitary member of the team. It is therefore abundantly clear that no member of the team has in any way been threatened with prosecution, nor contacted by anyone threatening to prosecute nor has any member EVER been cautioned by any lawyer or the police with regard to their publication of facts and views they publish about UKIP and its clique or claque or even members or policy.

May I also add that the ONLY three threats I have EVER received were founded first on the inept misunderstanding of the law by Michael Zucherman when I used the title ‘catterpillars & butterflies thereby bringing into derision the subsequent utilisation of the imagery used by UKIP subsequently.

The second instance was based on lies presented by Mark Croucher, Clive Page & Paul Nuttall for UKIP, in an attempt to bankrupt me to shut down the flow of facts about UKIP which I present. They lost their case in Court and to date have failed to act honourably and pay the some £13,000 they owe me.

The third instance was based on a pack of lies presented by Gerard Batten regarding which the police were misguidedly duped into interviewing me under caution for some 3 hours. The police decision was there was absolutely no case to answer and that I had not acted in any breech of the law and Gerard Batten was shown to have lied to try to build a case.

Let us be certain – I can unequivocally state that any claim by UKIP that they have intimidated those who publish under the name Junius into giving up is untrue and like so many other stories that emanate from UKIP and its placemen is just a pack of lies.

I NEVER post in cowardly anonymity, nor obfuscate my identity as I believe it is an ethical matter of integrity to stand by ones comments. If unsure or deliberately misleading one should NOT demean oneself by dishonesty hiding one’s identity as a coward or a traitor would.

For the record, I repeat: I have NEVER had personal aspirations politically, nor have I ever stood for office; further I have NEVER joined or been a member or been funded by any political party, faction or similar organisation.

I trust these facts help clarify details for the ill informed and the outright liars who seek to defame me, my blogs, postings and web sites.

Dear Mr. Farage,

I think my views on the EU are well known.
I also applaud your effort to remove this country from membership.
I am a UKIP member and therefore declare my interest. I have never previously belonged to any political party.
However, I do not tolerate fools gladly and have never been able to contain myself when confronted with rampant hypocrisy.
You can imagine, therefore, my reaction when I read the article “You TwitFace – the price of social media” by your party chairman, Steve Crowther, in the latest edition of your party magazine only to then turn the page and be confronted by an election campaign piece by Neil Hamilton. I understand the reasoning behind Mr Crowther’s article.
The basic message of ‘be careful what you write because it could come back and bite you’ is a sensible one. But how do you reconcile this message with your decision to be involved with Mr Hamilton? Are his past deeds not going to come back and bite you?
Have you forgotten that Mr Hamilton was involved in the ‘cash for questions’ scandal and that his electorate were so impressed with him that he was defeated by a man in a white suit in Tatton – the fourth safest Conservative seat in the country at the time?
Have you forgotten the findings of the 1997 Downey enquiry? Have you forgotten his brushes with Al Fayed and others in court? And, more recently, might I remind you that, despite all your efforts, the membership rejected his attempts to be selected as a European Parliament candidate?
The grass roots membership don’t want Mr Hamilton – but you are ignoring them. And your Chairman has the audacity to lecture the membership about being careful of their past conduct.
This is hypocrisy of the highest order and if you don’t do something about it, then it WILL come back and bite you, Mr. Farage…

UKIP Doctrine of Arrogance & Do as We Say NOT As We Do – AGAIN! Many will remember the lies of Mark Croucher to the Press Complaint Commission to defend UKIP’s Leader when he was exploiting foreign labour at the expense of British jobs & his family was trafficing Polish labour into the UK!

UKIP housing spokesman trousering a fortune renting to migrants on benefits despite party’s policies

Multi-millionaire landlord Andrew Charalambous earned £745,351 in housing benefit from tenants and concedes migration has ‘fuelled price and demand’

 

Lucrative: UKIP’s millionaire landlord and housing spokesman Andrew Charalambous

UKIP’S housing spokesman is making a fortune off migrant tenants on benefits – despite Nigel Farage calling for a ban on foreigners claiming welfare.

Multi-millionaire landlord Andrew Charalambous has pocketed £745,351 in housing benefit from occupants, who he admits include immigrants.

It will heap embarrassment on party leader Mr Farage and comes after Mr Charalambous described immigrants as a “massive factor in the overcrowding of social housing”.

He also demanded “priority be given to British families and those who contributed to the system”.

When Mr Charalambous was asked whether he was a hypocrite over his massive haul, he said: “Not at all. We don’t want to get into any business of questioning where people come from. That would be totally unfair.

“We operate in an area that is largely a migrant population. From a commercial point of view and a human point of view, we are not concerned about what the ethnic origin of the tenants is.”

He also said he was an “ethical” landlord but refused to confirm how many properties he owned.

Asked whether he was profiting from immigration, he said: “Immigration has not only fuelled demand but has fuelled price. I think that’s true.”

 

Earner: One of the UKIP spokesman’s rental properties in London

Our investigation with union GMB found his firm Woodlands Estates Limited got the £745,315 benefit cash through Haringey Council, in North London, last year – more than any other private landlord.

But the true figure is higher as it does not include benefit paid by the council to his tenants before they passed the money to Woodlands.

Last month leader Mr Farage called for new migrants to be banned from getting welfare handouts for five years after arriving in this country.

He said: “We must be completely mad, as a country, to be giving people from Eastern Europe in-work benefits.”

But buy-to-let tycoon Mr ­Charalambous, who has stood in a by-election to try to become UKIP’s first MP, said he would continue to accept migrants as tenants “as long as they are legally entitled to claim benefits”.

Wealthy Mr ­Charalambous went on: “If the law is going to change, then we work within the parameters of the law.”

He said that almost one in six of his tenants were recent migrants to the UK but insisted the rest had British passports, which they got through relatives or because they had been in the country for a number of years.

He said: “We live in a country which obviously lots of people want to move to. We shouldn’t stop people coming here for a better life. If people want to come here to contribute, we need to be open minded about that.

“But we need a way of saying ‘look this is where we draw the line’.”

But furious GMB General Secretary Paul Kenny said: “Housing hypocrite Charalambous blames foreigners for Britain’s housing crisis while he receives millions of taxpayers’ money in rent subsidies.

“Public money raised from ­hard-pressed families going to ­landlords such as Charalambous has to be stopped, with a building programme of new council housing for rent.”

 

Edward Lloyd/Alpha Andrew Charalambous , Baroness Margaret Thatcher and Greg Barker (Shadow Secretary of State for the Environment) at the Goring Hotel in Belgravia London Summer Party
Turncoat: Charalambous was formerly a Tory and cosied up to Margaret Thatcher in 2008

Mr Charalambous donated £146,000 to the Tories before defecting to UKIP and was pictured cosying up to Margaret Thatcher at a swanky party at a London hotel in 2008.

He has twice tried and failed to be elected as an MP, as a Tory candidate in 2010 and for UKIP in 2011.

Nicknamed “Dr Earth”, he has opened an “ecological” nightclub, describes himself as a “tantric master” and claims to have “dated some of the most beautiful women in the world”.

He began investing in properties in 1994 and now owns hundreds in the capital, including “most” of those rented out by Woodlands.

He insisted: “It’s to our credit that we accept tenants that other landlords wouldn’t accept. They are people that ­otherwise wouldn’t get housing.”
