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

  • Members of the steel band say they are ‘embarrassed‘ to be there – and leave
  • Ukip planned ‘bold and vibrant’ event in Croydon to dispel racism claims 
  • Steel band told to set up in front of a shop window  with ‘Love Colour’ sign
  • Party members clashed with angry protesters as police looked on 
  • Croydon council candidate Winston McKenzie brands the town ‘a dump’ 
  • Nigel Farage pulled out of attending the event amid security concerns

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.’  

Protesters waved placards branding Ukip the 'modern Nazi party' as they disrupted the street event

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.’

UKIP Amateur Hour Rolls On – Roll Up For The MUD WRESTLING!

Watchers Laugh as Genuine Supporters Weep at the comic tragedy of UKIP’s utterly unprofessional and incompetent behaviour!

As the so called leadership and hirelings squabble like ferrets in a sack egged on by their claque of fools and parasites jockeying for position!
.

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

Hi,

You will note that when I published UKIP’s amateur hour publication of Nigel Farage’s half baked letter of response that I said at the time that UKIP were being not just incompetent but crassly amateur.

Steve Crowther is clearly completely out of his depth and we note, as was shown at the time, that Nigel Farage didn’t even bother sending his hireling a copy until after the event – having had one of his other hirelings mail the letter to Marta Andreasen.

Astonishingly as soon as the idiot Steve Crowther received a copy, making up for lost time and no doubt jockeying for position, he couldn’t wait and ask someone with some common sense what to do – he published the letter on an open forum.

Yes an open forum! It is clearly open as since it has been active I, and no doubt others, have been forwarded copies of anything seemingly relevant.

Surely, unprofessional and incompetent as UKIP clearly is, they can not imagine that there are not members of their rival parties and members of the media who have not become fully paid up members of UKIP to ensure they get the odd titbit to use as stories in the media – though you will note that UKIP has become so very insignificant nowadays about the only publicity has been taking the mick with crass stories of whose riding the Mare of Ramsey next and even self serving nutters exploiting UKIP’s own fruitcake: CLICK HERE

Surely UKIP’s crassly amateur and clearly duplicitous leadership and its parasites do not believe that there are no members on the inside track who are not interested in UKIP being cleaned-up and made fit for purpose once again.

Then of course in the corrupt clamour of the claque and even amongst the leadership there are those jockeying for positions with their snouts in the troughs on the gravy train who are all too willing to leak information to better their position. Ask yourself if this might not be the case with Steve Crowther undermining his sponsors position for his own gain with his all to Nooo Labour wrigglings and betrayals.

Naturally Steve Crowther’s publishing of Nigel Farage’s crassly incompetent letter has led to the inevitable public response:

May 29, 2011 7:35 pm – Posted by Marta in Uncategorized
Dear Nigel,
During the Politics Show last Sunday you stated that I had “not even been to the UK for several months”. You have failed to retract this untrue statement and instead raised further unfounded accusations.
The fact is that I have been and “been seen”- there is public record- in the UK regularly, raising UKIP´s credibility at important events as the voice of opposition.
A search on the Electoral Commission website returns only one donation made by you to the party in the last 10 years. The donation of 1,100 pounds sterling to the South East region was made in March 2009, that is before the last European election.
The code of conduct demanded that MEPs “set up an office in their region, funded from their Parliamentary general allowances”.  However your declaration of financial interests as it appears in the European Parliament website under your name , shows that in fact your office in the South East region is given to you free of rent by a member of the party. Now one wonders where and how you are actually using such allowance.
Contrary to what you state I corrected bookie Mr. Alan Bown about my having an office in Woking when he surprised me back in January in the presence of Mr. Stuart Wheeler with the accusation -which I now realize must have originated from you- that I did not have an office. The fact is that I fund my office – located in an office building in Woking – out of my parliamentary general expense allowance, the address having been registered with the Council, communicated to Head Office and it also appears in my newsletter.
From the above it is clear that it is you and not me the one who has failed to honor the famous code of conduct that we were asked to sign when we stood as candidates for election in 2009. Do you by any chance believe it does not apply to you?
Unfortunately you have decided to put this on the public domain even before I had the chance to read it, so this is going on my website.
Voters look for credibility which is what, in my view, your actions are not a representation of.
Sincerely,
Marta

Dear Marta
Thank you for your letter of 23rd inst., in which, however, I quite fail to see how my saying, of you, “she hasn’t been seen in the UK for several months”, qualifies as “personal invective”, let alone slander!
This statement of mine was made in connection with your activities in the UK, as a UKIP-representative of the EU’s “South-East-of-England-Region”, in two areas, as follows.
1.  In relation to the recent, local and regional elections, in England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland:  in my view, your involvement in campaigning for the Party, over the last few months, has been scant – not to say non-existent.  Were you, for example, in Oldham, Barnsley or Leicester, for the vital by-elections in those constituencies?
If you have been holding public meetings or branch/constituency events in the “South-East”, of course, then I may be overstating my case.  Kindly let me know if you have.
2.  In relation to promissory commitments made by you to UKIP, in the event of election to the EU’s “parliament”:  along with all of UKIP’s elected members, you signed a declaration consisting of a number of undertakings concerning the role of a UKIP-”MEP”.
One of these undertakings was to make legally acceptable donations, to UKIP, as a registered voter in the UK, which you have now wilfully ceased to be.
Another was to maintain an office in the constituency; and yet, when Mr Alan Bown enquired after the address of your South-East Constituency-Office, you were unable to provide him with one.
Overall, I feel that my comment, to the effect that you are not engaged with UKIP in the UK, is a fair one.  On the specific point of your political activity, in the UK, over the last few months, I would be happy to stand corrected and will happily say so.
Yours sincerely,
Nigel Farage
