So Very Little Changes In UKIP’s Navel Gazing!
It is just a treadmill for enrichment of a small claque it seems!
Well what EXACTLY has UKIP achieved in 18 years that has moved us one inch closer to Leave-The-EU?

Hi,

as we run up to the UKIP conference it is sad to read the article about UKIP in NewEUrope OnLine dateline 05-September:

UKIP: Smears and signatures

Nikki Sinclaire MEP, who left the Europe of Freedom and Democracy over allegations of extremism and homophobia, has started a petition in the UK, asking for a referendum on EU membership.
She believes that the UK is, in practice, neither in or out of the union and is dithering on the sidelines.  Although she is a strong supporter of leaving the EU, she wants to have a genuine referendum, with both sides of the argument being able to make their case in a fair contest.
So far, she has collected over 10,000 signatures, 10% of her 100,000 target. This has put the UK Independence Party in a bit of a spot. They are hurrying out their own petition, so the Brits will at least get a choice of which petition to sign. To outsiders, it looks like the typical chaos surrounding the party. Sinclaire is visiting all the party conferences, starting with UKIP, who are meeting in Torquay, the home town of Basil Fawlty, where she will be holding a fringe event. Meanwhile, UKIP are holding elections for their National Executive, which has run into problems. 
Godfrey Bloom MEP sent out a letter and sample ballot form to members, where he had considerately filled in the ‘right’ candidates for them.  The night before Sinclaire’s fringe meeting about her petition, Tory blogger Iain Dale reported that,  the newly formed NEC, “were told that former UKIP MEP Nikki Sinclaire MEP is currently under investigation by OLAF, the EU Anti-Fraud Unit, and the West Midlands Economic Crime Unit on allegations of misuse of European Parliamentary allowances.”
He added that the meeting had been presented with documentary evidence.
Impeccable timing!

A well placed source has told New Europe that OLAF is not investigating Sinclaire and West Midland Police have insisted to us that they have not initiated an investigation into the MEP.

 as I said – so little changes and UKIP has spent a whole year with not an achievement to its name just more squabbling, a few more largely irrelevant councillors have defected in various directions, some old Tory hacks have tried to be noticed tottering around on Zimmer Frames and UKIP has tried to cover up its losses to the Tories.

In the year since the article was published Nikki Sinclaire has generated a great deal of good publicity whilst Farage’s ‘protege‘ Annabelle Fuller had considerable coverage for her drink fueled antics and stealing an MPs Blackberry and his House of Commons Pass.

The NEC has had its usual quota of knock down drag ’em out fights with the clearly out of control leadership and the liar Mick McGough has been given credibility by UKIP to show himself as a dishonest liar beyond his normal train trips and on You Tube where he gave a master class in how not to do politics he has added forums, the NEC and YouTube to his repetoire of dragging UKIP’s name into the gutter he inhabits but as ever he is not alone!

Then almost as predictably as day follows night an insider presents a dossiere of material, published over the years on my blogs and Junius producing it like a rabbit out of a hat with covering theories of their own to explain why they have finally, like some 100,000 before them, have lost confidence with UKIP and its endless navel gazing and failure to achieve anything of note as a party, much beyond the enrichment of its leadership claque!

Whilst on the subject of 100,000 Sinclaire has easily surpassed her target for the year presenting her figures to the media which they saw as so consequential together with the hugely valuable poll she commissioned and paid for that the story even broke the fog of war (well riots actually).

100,000+ is no mean achievement when you consider UKIP’s last petition raised 13,000 and lost the tax payer £1/4M – lost being the operative word!!

You will note her petition way outstrips the John Gaunt version which seemingly has ground to a halt with what is now a very out of date web site and also the Tory Party approved Plastic EUrosceptic poll which I gather is still trying to break 50,000 despite the support of Milliband, Bob Crow and others!

As for Mrs. Dale’s Diary revelations it would seem clear that he was set up with false information and used by malicious and malevolent factions in UKIP though I do understand that Derek Clark was found guilty of fraud but OLAF have not published their findings nor the details of the substantial amount he had to pay back as I gather the file has been passed to the British police but it is likely he will not be sent to prison if tried in view of his decrepitude.

I gather the OLAF enquiry into the fraud confessed to by Stuart Agnew has yet to be resolved as is the David Bannerman enquiry – though I gather Mike Nattrass seems to have dropped his legal complaints against The Sunday Times as their every word was true and interestingly although found guilty and having repaid monies fradulently obtained by Graham Booth his retirement to his UKIP earned pension seems not to have been matched with any generosity of spirit beyond the £Millions he has accrued and boasts of an Aston Martin!

Still a year on Farage is trying to dupe the party deeper into The EU as ever permitting the EU to dictate the agenda in return for them paying for the conference – frankly who in UKIP cares what Finland’s or any continental Country’s opinion of The EU is.

UKIP’s remit is to Leave-The-EU not to enrich a small claque and pose around doing The EU’s bidding in return for its bribes – which is why the membership voted 2 to 1 against helping The EU gain credibility in return for bribes with PEPP membership.

Clearly the membership of UKIP have made it VERY clear they are disgusted with the Pan EU Party EFD Group and its vile extremists lessons and clearly they just don’t care howmuch Farage will personally lose if UKIP does not join a PEPP. That said it is still on the cards Farage may be self serving and unscrupulous enough to try a re-run of the 2000 conference with an emulation of Michael Holmes’ back me or sack me – at least this time we will be spared the dullard comic antics of Booths’ skit on the stupidity of Devonians – though one can hardly put a similar version as a temper tantrum from First Legge!!

Having stalled since January to try to avoid what would inevitably be another High Court defeat at the hands of Sinclaire will we see much pretence of sweetness and light till the day after the conference ends.

Remember the year Tom Wise was exposed as a criminal by The Sunday Telegraph, the duplicitous behaviour of UKIP leadership making promises to Petrina Holdsworth they were proven they had no intention of keeping leading to her resignation after the dishonest attempts to keep her on board for the conference.

It really is astonishing just how little would need to be changed in the 2010 article above to suit todays scenario in UKIP!!

Clearly too busy squabbling for a place at the troughs to pay attention!

Hi,

you will be well aware that whilst still an MEP before he retired Roger Knapman resigned from the extremist grouping in The EU and wrote an excorriating letter in denunciation of the incompetence of Nigel Farage MEP as a leader.

Roger Knapman believed that Nigel Farage MEP had completely squandered the legacy of goodwill that he, Roger Knapman, had built up during his own leadership – during which he had led UKIP from 3 MEPs to 12 MEPs and had increased the membership to 30,000.

Many will remember that it was believed at the time that a leak by Nigel Farage supporters had set Roger Knapman up over his foolish embroillment regarding Polish workers and his family involvement in ‘People Trafficking’ – importing primarily Polish workers to undercut British skilled workers in exploitation of EU regulations designed to damage Britain.

Whether it was at Farage’s instigation it was clearly at the instigation of one of Farage’s vile little puppets Mark Croucher that Roger Knapman’s position was made infinitely worse. Mark Croucher was behind the lies in the letter to The Press Complaints Commission which was so roundly and soundly rejected!

Further it was Mark Croucher who exacerbated the problem by describing his employers as ‘a bunch of F***wits’ – though some may have agreed with him it was very damaging to make such comments when telling lies to the media!

In a most professional manner loyal to UKIP Roger Knapman waited until AFTER the local elections, in which Farage as so called leader had performed so attrociously and has now admitted on TV that his strategy was all wrong and he had proved unable to lead UKIP – Roger Knapman reitterated part of his comments from a year earlier see CLICK HERE

Nikki Sinclaire MEP was lied about, bullied and abused eventually being dishonestly barred from UKIP based on base lies and distortions.

Then of course Mike Nattrass MEP distanced himself from Nigel Farage as leader refusing to continue supporting the extremist racist, anti Jewish and anti homosexual EFD Group with its pro EU membership stance and reformist values. More recently Trevor Colman MEP has also renounced Nigel Farage’s leadership and envolvement in The EFD – though I doubt either will have the courage to endorse the FACTS as presented by Marta Andreasen even those they know to be true.

A measure of the disaray and splits in UKIP is the vituperative attacks being made, as with the poisinous response to the difference in opinion based on principles that we saw when Nikki Sinclaire was attacked by those who feared their snouts might be kicked out of the feeding troughs – the crass incompetence of the response to Marta Andreasen’s self serving stupidity, true as its content clearly was.

Next we see the foolish and odious leap into the gutter by all of those two faced children Farage has gathered around him who were praising and supporting David Bannerman but a mere few days ago, being far too stupid to to use their brains and blinded by their own self importance and need to act as sycophants to stay with a chance of remaining relevant!

The bile in their vaulte face has been an object lesson for many – whilst the silence from the hirelings and cowards as they keep a low profile to weather the storm is also notable.

We are now informed that further divisions are leaving Farage yet more isolated and insecure as a result of last Saturday’s SW Committee meeting where Christopher Palmer (aka Palmer) is picking a fight with Brian Slade’s opinion of the minutes.

Meanwhile Bob Feal-Martinez is missing no opportunity to attack the idiotic Steve Crowther and his incompetence!

Saturday Meeting:

all
as promised, an update [for your info] following the meeting held at lexdum on sat 21st, re item 12 on agenda, “loss of s/west support” and the outcome of a rather heated [at times] debate on the loss of financial support for the funding of the regional organiser due to trevor colman withdrawing his contibution of financial support for this purpose.
1/  it was agreed we need an r/o in place full time to co-ordinate the region,
2/  trevor explained the reason he had withdrawn his financial support for the funding was because the eu allowances given to mep`s cannot be used directly and legally for this purpose and his actions were to protect his good name etc.
3/  trevor stated he was very unhappy in the way the issue had been presented to the membership by the letter sent out by the s/west chairman, and how in his opinion .it tarnished his name and reputation due to the incorrect and misleading way it presented the facts, he felt the issue should have been discussed between the committee and himself, and he had therefore to attend the meeting to defend his reputation.
4/  the chairman made comment that his intended action to withdraw his financial support also had not been made known to the committee for discussion.
5/  trevor asked if he still had the support of the committee to carry out his role and following a frank open discussion it was agreed that trevor had been very active for ukip and had contributed substancial financial support as well as donations of  material items such as desks chairs computers etc used at head office.
6/  a vote was taken on the specific point of continued support to trevor and all members voted in favour.
7/  an alternative way to secure financial support by trevor from his eu allowances to help fund a full time r/o was proposed by the chairman, this was agreed by trevor in principle that should it be found to be legal and within the eu rules of how an mep`s can be used he would be happy to contibute to the r/o`s cost`s.
8/ a much needed and frank clear the air meeting that concluded a wrong approach to the issue had been taken regards actions and communication by both sides, and all present agreed that the alternative way suggested to enable trevor to legally use part of his allowances to fund the r/o should be investigated, trevor agreed to this.

brian slade 

The splits and divisions don’t end there:

Interestingly she was described by one of UKIP’s more independent senior members as ‘One of the very few UKIP members he would consider welcome in his home’.

Rather says it all doesn’t it!
 
Perhaps we can all be excused in quoting Sir Walter Scott with:

‘Oh what a tangled web we weave when first we practice to deceive’

 Perhaps the phenomenon quoted even earlier by Heywood in his ‘Dialogue of Proverbs’ of 1546 may be considered even more apposite when he said:

‘And olde folke vnderstood, Whan theues fall out, true men come to their good,’

But let us not forget he continued:

‘Which is not alwaie true’.

Whilst on the subject of falling out!!!

I hear Wee Willy Dartmouth has had one of his temper tantrums and has refused to continue funding Lextrum House with Trevor Colman! This leaves Trevor colman in the unenviable position of being expected to fund UKIP Party HQ on his own!

There is the simple explanation as to why Wee Willy has had a hissy fit and that is Acid Raine has refused to give him more pocket money and he is finding that funding robert Maxwell’s cast offs is proving more onerous that he had expected and although she sold her flat for 13Million she isn’t prepared to give Wee Willy any more loose change to play the fool!

However I believe there is a simpler explanation and it revolves around Nigel Farage’s self interest and insecurity and realising he is without friends – except his paid for ones, he is trying to control HIS withering party – we can expect announcements that:

‘UKIP ‘HAS DECIDED’ (yeah really) that it doesn’t need the headquarters and Nigel Farage intends to rent an accomodation address in London to TRY to keep control of the party’.

To say this is all so very predictable is an understatement as anyone who has read my blogs and ‘e’Mails before that or the Blogs by The Junius team will be well aware – many of these details we warned of some years ago!

It does rather make the likes of Mark Croucher, Douglas Denny, Gawain Towler, Derek Clark MEP, Mick McGough, Andrew Smith, Malcolm Wood, David Lott, Kevin Mahoney, Stuart Agnew MEP, Roger Thomas, George Curtis, Gerard Batten (who we note was in a car accident with his wife in London in the early hours of Sunday and with no thought of others is quoted as saying ‘I’m just relieved I wasn’t more seriously hurt’ as an aside I trust his wife was OK!!), Stuart Parr, Skeptyk (aka Paul Finch and possibly others), John Ison, Independent UKIP and many more look like the odious idiots they have clearly proved themselves to be.

Fair play to him one of UKIP’s village idiots who has lied, cheated and defamed having been taken for and shown to be a fool has had to admit they were so stupid that they didn’t see this coming from the very start when this blog was regularly predicting it and the idiot Douglas Denny was telling endless lies and inventing desperate fantasy scenarios to try to defame us for consistently and continuously telling the truth.

Even now humiliated as he is we doubt he will be man enough to issue the apology he must surely have the intelligence to know that he owes me and numerous others for his lies.

You can read more of this odious liar Douglas Denny with fact after fact corroborating our statement of fact that Douglas Denny is a liar, a cheat and a fantasist embroilled up to his neck in the frauds and thefts from the public purse and members and a prime mover in the rigging of corrupt internal elections CLICK HERE

This is his latest homily – having betrayed Britain, the electorate UKIP members and more he now calls the pot black!

Dear David,

To learn of your defection to the Conservative Party after years of your denouncing them is the most cynical, self-serving act of betrayal I know of in all the years of politics that I have been engaged in.

I am appalled and disgusted with you: – a person who I thought had integrity but has now proven without a shadow of doubt how shallow in principles you really are.

What is worse for me personally to learn of this event, is I considered you a friend too, someone invited to stay under my roof, eaten at my table, and considered a trusted companion on the road towards a great cause for Britain against the EU; a person who had previously denounced all the other cynical political parties – especially the Conservatives – who have been for over thirty years and still are – busy selling the country down the river….. and now you have joined them !! For what? … your own selfish, power-greed, tongue-slavering, money-grabbing reasons? What a traitor ! What a Judas! How can you can face yourself in the mirror every day?

To salvage any kind of credibility as a decent human being you should now resign your MEP position – so hard worked for and gained on the back of UKIP’s many workers who deserve better than you by far !

Resign, and I shall accept you still as an honourable person but understand that you cannot continue with UKIP (for whatever reasons) – then, and only then, at least you will have done the decent thing.

Stay as an MEP, having got there under the UKIP banner only to have defected and distanced yourself from your own previously announced principles – espoused so volubly for years under UKIP’s name – and you will prove to all you are as base as the lowest on the planet.

Douglas Denny. NEC member. UKIP.

Yes clearly The Kettle and The Pot have fallen out!

#0428* – Rip Van Winkel Has Finally Found His Manhood on UKIP NEC

Rip Van Winkel Has Finally Found His Manhood on UKIP NEC!

DD has finally woken up after all these years and realised just how he has been used and abused by ‘I’, ‘I’, ‘I’!

.

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

Hi,

it does rather look as if Douglas Denny has at last woken up and realised just how much of a puppet he has been used as and how he has consistently been duped.

This may well explain his lies and fantasies about me and others  – it is just possible that he actually believed the garbage he was being fed and then regurgitating.

As has been my style for many years I shall not publish his challenge nor ‘I’, ‘I’, ‘I’s response nor the rejoinder until I have received a copy from a second source.

However suffice to say this COULD be the step towards cleaning up UKIP to start to maker it an acceptable vote for informed, decent moral individuals – not just the children in politics, the uninformed and the dreamers not to mention the many maggots that have gathered to feed on the crumbs that fall from the the troughs of the self serving leadership.

I wish those seeking the truth and a full accounting of the £Millions that have gone missing unaccounted, the fraud and the self enrichment – little wonder that Mike Nattrass and Trevor Colman followed the lead of Nikki Sinclaire and there are clear signs that others will leave the EFD Group after the Local Elections.

Little wonder that Marta Andreasen has demanded control of her own 400 Budget and may well defect to the EPP and the center right of Spanish politics.

Little wonder that duplicitous and dishonest David Bannerman is seeking a new home having failed to gain acceptance with the Tories in the Eastern Region he is now trying to jump ship for the Tories in the South West where it is likely that he may be able to do a deal taking William Dartmouth with him.

There is a possibility of a very much better future if DD’s efforts to clean up UKIP succeed as do not forget not only does he know where many of the bodies are buried but in many instances he was duped into wielding the shovel!

Let us hope others give DD the support he will need.

UKIP’s Lord Dartmouth and the curious case of the disappearing peerage

William DartmouthMartyn Oates 16:46 UK time, Wednesday, 10 November 2010
 
As Nigel Farage is elevated (once again) to the UKIP leadership, his fellow MEP William Dartmouth appears to be sliding down the social scale.
The South West UKIP MEP is the 10th Earl of Dartmouth. However, a recent communication from the party’s press office suggests he’s laid aside his 300-year-old peerage.
The email in questions blithely refers to the noble lord as “Mr Dartmouth” no fewer than three times.
If he’s really renounced his peerage, surely he should be using his family name and calling himself “Mr Legge”?
This is precisely what Tony Benn did (ditching the double-barrelled Wedgewood bit along the way) when he stopped being Viscount Stansgate in order to qualify for election to the House of Commons in 1963.
Since the House of Lords Act 1999, though, hereditary peers are no longer barred from standing for the Commons (as the same Act removed their entitlement to sit in the Lords).
And the European Parliament – graced for 20 years by the head of Europe’s grandest royal family – has long extended a warm welcome to the blue-blooded.
