this is merely a holding post at this stage.
I have Twittered a little while ago:
Nikki Sinclaire & 3 staff arrested and released re: allegations of fraud made by John Ison? and UKIP? I understand. I BELIEVE unsustainable!
I will provide more RELIABLE FACTS when I have time.
I BELIEVE that the West Midlands Fiscal Crime Unit has been lied to and conned by the self serving low lifes in UKIP Leadership and aspirant sycophants, no doubt egged on by UKIP Leadership with promises and bribes.
Many will remember the lies of Mark Croucher and Annabelle Fuller on behalf of UKIP Leadership, which when investigated were proven to be utter bunkum as was their contemptible disregard for the law, ethics and the truth as with Mick McGough and others.
I do however FIRMLY GO ON RECORD stating that I believe that this underhand and apparently corrupt and vindictive behaviour of UKIP will in the long run prove to be one of THE most damaging and costly actions they have in dishonesty and self serving behaviour committed.
I believe the lies of Mick McGough about me published on the UKIP controlled Forum and the rapid support he received by one of UKIP’s other corrupt puppets was no coincidence as they KNEW I could be relied upon to publish what I believed on this issue in a quest for the truth.
I KNOW UKIP is willing to lie both to the Courts and in The media and I believe these allegations to be founded on more lies from UKIP.
It is a very strange ‘fraudster’ who proves beyond doubt to have paid from their own pocket and recorded in signed off accounts certificated by an accountant more of their own money by 10s of £1,000s than the piffling allegations made on UKIP’s behest and by John Ison based on accounts HE MANAGED and documentation HE STOLE for his own personal gain, it would seem!
INDEPENDENT MEP Nikki SINCLAIRE:
Statement from Nikki Sinclaire MEP
Nikki Sinclaire attended the police station voluntarily yesterday and has co-operated with the police.
Nikki Sinclaire MEP disputes all allegations put towards her or her staff. Nikki Sinclaire MEP and her office will continue to fully co-operate with the police on this matter.
The allegations at hand are old allegations from a disgruntled ex-employee who himself is under investigation and whose motives are entirely political to pursue his advancement in UKIP.
Due to the on-going police investigation it would be inappropriate to comment further at this time. This is particularly frustrating to Ms Sinclaire who is eager to clear her name and has nothing to hide.
END OF STATEMENT FROM:
INDEPENDENT MEP Nikki SINCLAIRE:
I repeat that as when this story was first published – I did NOT believe it to be sustainable but I do expect it will be used by UKIP Leadership to further try to sabotage Nikki Sinclaire yet when it was absolutely clear that Tom Wise had been involved in fraud with the aid of signatures by Lindsay Jenkins – it was so clear that the media had published details having interviewed various involved individuals and Tom Wise was eventually found guilty and sent to prison for 2 years.
Derek Clark UKIP MEP, Stuart Agnew UKIP MEP, David Bannerman UKIP MEP, Jeffrey Titford UKIP MEP, Nigel Farage UKIP MEP, Graham Booth UKIP MEP, Lord Pearson sometime UKIP puppet Leader, Mick McGough UKIP NEC, Marta Andreasen UKIP’s Spanish MEP and others have ALL been involved in fraud or had to repay money to the public purse used unlawfully yet no action has ever been taken against them by UKIP so it will be interesting to watch and measure the ethics and morality of UKIP leadership in how they handle this issue!
I am aware that Sinclaire has published her accounts in greater detail than any UKIP MEP and has had them signed off bny an accountant – I am also aware that she has spent a considerable amount of her own money in promotion of the Leave-The-EU cause and thus I BELIEVE there to be absolutely no grounds to the allegations – but I will be the first to correct ANY falser information I may be supplied with and will make VERY clear the difference between fact and opinion on this issue.
I have no reason to believe Nikki Sinclaire MEP or any member of her present staff has been involved in ANY fraudulent activity.
I will provide further details when they are available and I have time.

West Midlands MEP Nikki Sinclaire arrested over alleged expenses fraud
MEP Nikki Sinclaire arrested in expenses probe
West Midlands MEP Nikki Sinclaire has been arrested on suspicion of conspiracy to defraud the European Parliament.
The MEP was arrested and bailed with three other people yesterday as part of a probe into expenses by West Midlands Police.
Properties have been searched by officers investigating an allegation made in 2010 over the use of allowances and expenses.
Ms Sinclaire, 43, was elected as a UKIP MEP in June 2009 and came third in the contest to succeed Nigel Farage as party leader later that year.
But she had the whip withdrawn in 2010 for refusing to sit with the party’s Italian allies Liga Nord in the European Parliament. Ms Sinclaire, a lesbian, said the party were homophobic.
She won a claim for sex discrimation against her former colleagues at an employment tribunal and now sits as an independent.
A spokesman for West Midlands Police said: “Officers from West Midlands Police Economic Crime Unit arrested four people yesterday on suspicion of conspiracy to defraud the European Parliament.
“Two women aged 55 and 39 and a man aged 19 were arrested at addresses in Solihull, Worcester and Birmingham and were taken to a police station for questioning. A 43-year-old woman was later arrested at a police station in Birmingham.
“All four have since been released on police bail.
“Searches have been carried out at the addresses involved by officers conducting an investigation into an allegation made in 2010 regarding allowances and expenses.”
On her Twitter page today, a spokesman for Miss Sinclaire said the MEP attended the police station in Birmingham voluntarily yesterday and co-operated fully with the police.
“This is particularly frustrating to Ms Sinclaire who is eager to clear her name and has nothing to hide,” tweets on the MEP’s page said.
The MEP “disputes all allegations put towards her or her staff”, which were “old allegations made by a disgruntled ex-employee who himself is under investigation and whose motives are entirely political to pursue his advancement in Ukip”, they continued.
Due to the police investigation, it would be inappropriate to comment further at this time, it added.
It said Miss Sinclaire and her office would continue to “fully co-operate with the police on this matter”.
In a short statement, Ukip said Ms Sinclaire ceased to be an MEP for the party in 2010.
“It would be inappropriate for the party to make any comment during the process of an ongoing police inquiry,” the statement said.
