Ukip’s Rochester & Strood by  election candidate the Tory turncoat Mark Reckless’s Reckless Casual Racism
regarding Gaddafi’s killing of immigrants on an industrial level!

Hi,
I aimed to write of this obscene comment by the turncoat Tory Mark Reckless who is now standing for Ukip, with much expectation of election, in the Rochester & Strood constituency by-election.
In the light of Mark Reckless’ latest ill considered racist remark as detailed, I incline to believe that with an upcoming General Election the Conservatives must be relieved they let him go and he can befoul the reputation of Ukip rather than the Tories!
Having lost my telephone and broadband connection from Sunday evening until late yesterday afternoon, due to the antiquated aluminium cables in my local exchange, I have been struggling to catch up with the follies of Ukip & bringing them to the attention of readers and the media – I therefore have no qualms in dealing with Mark Reckless’ crass and casual racism by copying / Guest Posting an article from another blogger on the subject, with which I largely agree, to assist you in keeping abreast of facts pertaining to Ukip.

000a Inde-006 Reckless.jpg

Spread throughout several newspapers today are the comments from Mark Reckless, former Conservative MP and now UKIP candidate for the Rochester and Strood by-election.

At a rally in the Kent constituency, Reckless – by name and nature it would seem – referred to the growing numbers of migrants trying to make the dangerous voyage across the Mediterranean Sea to Europe. “Whatever people say about Gaddafi”, he remarked, “one thing is he didn’t allow those boats to come across”.

“He had an agreement with Italy that stopped it. Since he’s gone we have no idea what’s going on in Libya, it’s too dangerous for anyone to go there”, he added.

According to the Mail, these remarks are being compared to the famous last excuse for Fascism, “say what you like about Mussolini, he made the trains on time”. But they are far, far worse than that comparison would imply. They are more like applauding Hitler for keeping Jews out of Britain by putting them in the camps – for that is precisely what Gaddafi was doing with migrants passing through his territory – with the complicity of the EU.

Parallels are in many ways absolute. Huge volumes of well-founded evidence, not least from Amnesty, the Global Detention Project and Human Rights Watch attest to the fact that Gaddafi set up many death camps where immigrants were unlawfully detained, tortured and murdered. Many others were trucked into the Sahara and abandoned without food and water.

Altogether, the Gaddafi regime was responsible for the deaths of thousands, if not hundreds of thousands of migrants. Yet – despite that – Italy in 2008 concluded a “Friendship Agreement” which had Gadaffi agreeing to step up border controls and to take back “expelled foreigners” from Italy, all in exchange for Italy agreeing to provide Libya $5 billion in infrastructure projects over 25 years.

Italy was already paying for charter flights for Libya to send the people “home”, and had between August 2003 and December 2004 transported 5,668 people to Libya, despite known human rights abuses.

On the back of the agreement, in May 2009, Libya and Italy also launched joint naval patrols in Libyan territorial waters for an initial period of three years, the controversial practice of “push-backs” (respingimento) which was subsequently condemned as breaching human rights law.

Thus, while no one is going to argue with Reckless’s general theses that things are no better in Libya now, after western intervention, to applaud a dictator for his human rights abuses is not the most sensible thing for a politician to do – unless, of course, he represents UKIP.

Enter now Mr Farage who was given the opportunity to implement a deft piece of damage limitation, only for him to agree with Reckless (and incidentally support EU policy), bemoaning the removal of somebody, “albeit an Arab nationalist dictator, who actually gave a level of stability to the area”.

Thus we have senior UKIP politicians applauding a dictator’s use of death camps – a means of immigration control which clearly has the approval of Messrs Reckless and Farage. And with that, it is perhaps unsurprising that UKIP is reluctant to commit its policy to writing – unless, of course, it is waiting for the translation from the original German.

Hi,

as it becomes ever clearer, to the informed, that Ukip has ever more deeply significant problems beyond the sexual dalliances of its leadership in continental bordellos and employing wives and mistresses, whether past present or future, the divorce of buffoons like Roger Helmer are of little significance – with whom and where they sleep is like them, an irrelevance.

HELMER, Roger 02 - ASLEEP on The JOB 01

Clearly their much claimed populist positioning and mobilising of a ‘people’s army’ has all the ring of truth of scoundrels such as General Jackson, General Lord Dunat and others in trying to pretend that Britain’s folly of engagement by the self serving degenerate fool Tony Blair and the low grades he gathered around him trying to claim Britain’s involvement in Iraq and Afghanistan was other than a route, in militarty, political, economic and humanitarian terms.

Clearly it is not just Ukip tyhat is bereft of leadership and sound judgement.

Ukip however is being implausible before the even for even the poorly informed!

You will note the jingo of mobilising a ‘peoples’ army’, which has clearly stalled as shown by the failure of their Police Crime Commissioner candidate in South Yorkshire to get out any kind of vote let alone mobilise those who have not engaged politically in the past scoring a mere 4.7% of the votes of the electorate, albeit a gain on last time when Jonatyhan Arnot had a mere 16,000 or so votes, this time their candidate picked up a little by the increase of turnout from 14.5% to 14.9% and absorbing the votes of last time’s popular English Democrat candidate who did not stand this time.

Hardly mobilising a ‘peoples’ army’ though to be fair the winner with almost double the vote was the Labour candidate an Anglican priest teaching ethics at the local red brick Uni. with a meager 7.4% holding within a few hundred of the disgraced outgoing Labour incumbent; thus showing Ukip is not materially effecting Labour in their he\artlands.

Then much akin to the anti homosexual appearance of Roger Helmer’s comments and Ukip in general, particularly Nigel Farage and his close chum, at the time, Godfrey Bloom – as displayed by Nigel Farage openly denouncing Nikki Sinclaire, an openly declared homosexual subsequent to her gender reassignment, within hours of her being elected as one of his MEPs despite the fact that she went on to donate more of her own money to the Ukip cause in the following 4 montha than Farage himself has donated in 21 years!

Ukip saw a gap in the market – a new band wagon to jump on – and decided to try to increase their vote using the wide open goal and crowd from the now collapsed BNP looking for a new home by preaching a doctrine all too akin to the racist hate material published by their own MEP Gerard Batten to exploit the increase in mobility of people world wide resulting in a huge difficulty dealing with immigrants.

IMMIGRATION POLICY - EUkip 01One of Gerard Batten’s odious racist Ukip pamphlets

Ukip were dubiously backed not only by a few police officers of dubious integrity and questionable awsociates but also by a cult of extremist so called self proclaimed ‘christians’!

The mask is slipping! Part of Ukip’s propaganda was to claim that Britain was awash with immigrants but when you study the figures you find that this just isn’t true when compared witjh other countries – not wishjing to let the facts get in the way of an opportunity to make a shoddy case Ukip blamed the EU for this, yet as you will see from the facts in the chart below the argument is unsound:

EU IMMIGRATION 2014 - 01Just click on the charty for a larger version.

It is worth noting that Ukip champions the cause of leaving the EU, which is of course a sound policy, but to do so dishonestly is to cast their future to the wind!

Were Britain to Leave_The_EU it would not make a jot of difference to our immigrant levels and the fact they site Norway and Switzerland as exemplars shows how very ill informed and dishonest they are since both countries are not only outside of the EU but also have much higher levels of immigration than Britain.

To compound their folly Ukip suggest a role model of Australia as having a much better control of immigration yet where Britain currently has some 13% of our population who are immigrants Australia stands at 27%. Meanwhile although Ukip would seem to be deriving much support and attention from the opposition wing in America where interestingly it is shown to have nearly the identical immigration level to these United Kingdoms with 41M of its 313M peoples being immigrants, thus 13%!

Ukip’s dishonesty is increasingly being seen through, not to mention the3 vile nature of many in its leadership clique and its immediate claque.

One can expect Mark Reckless to be re-elected in the upcoming by election but for the life of me I see absolutely no precedent or track record of figures to show the protest vote stands any chance of seeing him hold his seat in the upcoming General Election – the turn of the wheel  when irt comes to actual achievement in Ukip to date shows that Ukip has little hope of gaining MPs at a General Election.

One may well seek to make much of their coming second in several by elections but the difference between 2nd. and 1st. is the difference between success and failure and if they are unable to produce winners in by elections with everything in their favour it seems clear that their sole achievement in a General election will be to ensure Britain NEVER leaves the EU, by destroying what little hope we have of a Referendum and compounding the catastrophe by placing Labour in Downing Street to continue the destruction of Britain they have resol;utely achieved in every other moment of folly where they were elected!

Let us hope the public wake from their somnambulent loss of faith in democracy and return to voting rather than leaving the vote to those jumping on ill informed populist band wagons.

Some reassurance may be found that although Ukip lay claim to 40,000 members they should remember at a time when the eligible electorate was far smaller Baronet Sir Oswald Moseley built up to 50,000, largely pandering to a working-class hooligan strain exploited subsequently by John Tyndall’s National Front in the 1970s in Britain, the same grouping that  Alex Salmond endeavoured to tap into in Scotland and Adolf Hitler had successfully exploited in Germany, yet in Britain as a whole Moseley spectacularly failed in electoral achievement as did Tyndall!

Clearly Ukip has failed in domestic elections to dateand without Tory turncoats and malcontents they would be as insignificant as their natural rivals in the English Defence League, Britain First, BNP, English Democrats, Greens and Monster Raving Loonies!

Ukip having spectacularly failed to come up with any plausible and costed serious policies in its 21 years, dismissing former efforts as soon as they are shown to be, to use their own leader’s description ‘drivel’ despite his having personally been in charge of policy inventing most of it ad lib to suit occasions and having personally signed off and commended their last manifesto; being only to happy to lay the blame at anyone’s door rather than shoulder the responsibility for his own ineptitude!

It looks all too likely that Nigel Farage will be squirming around in efforts to lay the blame for Ukip’s totally inaccurate immigrant policy at someone’s door unwilling to damage his income stream and career path by accepting responsibility for his actions!

In 21 years the one policy which Nigel Farage’s party has spectacularly failed to address is a responsible and honourable EU exit and survival strategy – a concept and policy document both far from populist in its required detail and obviously far beyond his or his party’s intellectual ability to produce to date – therefore I take the liberty of putting forward a suggestion that all who genuinely wish to Leave_The_EU amongst the ranks of those who have to date been duped into supporting Ukip consider adopting minded that the ONLY route to this is via referendum which can only be achieved by holding one’s nose and voting Conservative – how so ever one might vote in insignificant protest votes pending the General Election.

To that end and to help Ukip supporters understand the importance of a responsible and honourable EU exit and survival strategy I publish below an article from another blog.

The House of Commons on:

Leaving The EU – 01-Jul-2013

000a Parliament 002-exi.jpgPublished yesterday by the House of Commons Library was a research paper on “leaving the EU”. The online introduction is here which offers a download facility for the entire 112-page document. For those who want to look at it without downloading, you can access it here.The paper is edited by Vaughne Miller and she tells us that the Treaty on European Union provides for a Member State to leave the EU, either on the basis of a negotiated withdrawal agreement or without one.

If the UK were to leave the EU following a referendum, Miller says, it is likely that the Government would negotiate an agreement with the EU, which would probably contain transitional arrangements as well as provide for the UK’s long-term future relations with the EU. There is no precedent for such an agreement, but it would in all likelihood come at the end of complex and lengthy negotiations.

The full impact of a UK withdrawal, she adds, is impossible to predict, but from an assessment of the current EU role in a range of policy areas, it is possible to identify issues and estimate some of the impacts of removing the EU role in these areas. The implications would be greater in areas such as agriculture, trade and employment than they would in, say, education or culture.

As to whether UK citizens would benefit from leaving the EU, Miller argues that this would depend on how the UK Government of the day filled the policy gaps left by withdrawal from the EU.

She argues that, in some areas, the environment, for example, where the UK is bound by other international agreements, much of the content of EU law would probably remain. In others, it might be expedient for the UK to retain the substance of EU law, or for the Government to remove EU obligations from UK statutes.

Much would depend, Miller concludes, on whether the UK sought to remain in the European Economic Area (EEA) and therefore continue to have access to the single market, or preferred to go it alone and negotiate bilateral agreements with the EU.

And such is the view of a senior researcher in the House of Commons Library. It is not the definitive word by any means, but it is a contribution to a complex subject, where much debate and clarification is needed. At least, it does explore the Article 50 issue, telling us that an EU-exit would not be straightforward and would involve complex and probably lengthy negotiations over the UK’s future relations with the EU.

In so doing, several of the more egregious myths are debunked. For instance, the decision to leave, we are told, does not need the endorsement or formal agreement of the other Member States. Withdrawal can happen, whether or not there is a withdrawal agreement, two years after the leaving State notifies the European Council of its intention to withdraw.

Nevertheless, we learn, the terms of Article 50 TEU imply an orderly, negotiated withdrawal, and it is clearly indicated that transitional provisions would have to be agreed, allowing EU law and obligations to continue to apply until all loose ends had been tied up. It would not be possible to withdraw immediately from several policy areas without causing enormous disruption.

In my view, such are the complications that completion of negotiations within a two-year period is unlikely, and we could see the UK – as well as the member states – looking for an extension, before a withdrawal agreement could be finalised, with any side treaties that might be needed.

For all its utility, though, the paper has some huge gaps. There is, by way of one example, virtually no recognition of the effect of globalisation of trade, and the expanding role of international standards-setting bodies which, via WTO, are largely displacing the EU as originators of trade regulation.

In this context, a paper that talks of harmonised rules on type approval of road vehicles, that does not mention UNECE and the World Forum on the Harmonisation of Vehicle Regulations, must be considered severely lacking. There is much of the “little European” in the arguments adduced.

For the moment, though, the paper is probably ahead of the field, which means that many commentators will be struggling to catch up. It gets some attention from the advertising and merchandising conglomerate, the Telegraph Media Group Ltd, which offers a thin report, homing in on narrow FUD issues. One suspects its author lacks the intellectual framework with which to assess the paper properly.

But then, media interests have shown little ability to deal with the detailed issues attendant on our leaving the EU – and many of the commenters even less so. The House of Commons researchers are better equipped, although one has to say, not that much better. But their contributions do make a start to what is going to be a long haul.

Why Clacton Parliamentary constituency Is A Perfect Target For Ukip & Nigel Farage’s brand of cult like populism:

.
~~~~~~~~~~#########~~~~~~~~~~
.
Hi,
if you read the case study of ‘The Center for Social Justices’ on Clacton you will start to appreciate just why it is potentially the most suitable chance Ukip has of having someone (anyone) elected to Parliament – especially as Parliament becomes ever less relevant to the Governance of the once United Kingdoms – now little more than a squabbling series of regions ruled over by the malign and self serving EU.
Ukip’s cult like style requiring little serious thought in terms of policies or any issue of gravitas much beyond jumping on any populist band wagon to garner votes from a less well educated sector of the electorate who feel challenged and out manoeuvered in the job market by waves of immigrants from the EU. An older sector of the population is attractedf under a thinly veilled racist extremism they believe will provide jobs for their children and granchildren as they complete their scratch cards and dispense with books, education and in many cases even a table to eat from.
The stridency and name calling of Ukip’s leadership for publicity sake apeals to such an unthinking under belly of society sadly. A sector of society all too willing to blame immigrants or for that matter anyone else for the failures of their lives rather than admit their own short comings.
It seems there are regions, or at least sufficient of the underbelly of society together with societies failure where the unrelenting chavveery, bullying and mindless centralised control appeals even though it is clear just what Ukip’s thoughts related to debate and the electorate are:
ATKINSON, Janice 02Ukip MEP Janice Atkinson
Ad-Van EUkipNo Substitute for leadership, gravitas and policies!
NATTRASS, Mike 01Hardly A Party to Take Seriousl
 UKIP CHICKEN PROTEST 01Ukip Staff & MEPs expect to be taken seriously in Brussels
EU MEP Cartoon 03
That it is currently rumoured that the Tories will be fielding Garry Barlow a ‘celeb’ rather than a member of socie3ty of gravitas and achievement outside of entertainment and as a showman, to cash in on the populist vote of the sub economic and poorly educated majority of the electorate in Clacton is a sad reflection of the times!
Consider this extract from the case study in question:
‘Clacton is the end of the line – it is not just the last station from the west but it’s also
where a lot of troubled people end up.’
This charity worker’s blunt description of Clacton-on-Sea epitomises the ‘rise and fall’
image that grips many seaside towns. But walking through its main streets the sense of
decline is not obvious – on summer afternoons the beach is busy, cafes are trading and
children enjoy the seaside attractions. Clacton appears to be a bustling town of over
55,000 people.
51
‘It’s when you scratch below the surface that you start to see the problems Clacton has,’ said
a businesswoman who has run a bed and breakfast near the town’s pier since the 1960s.
‘What has happened to Clacton is really sad, in fact it’s disgraceful. The place was so
vibrant through the 1960s and 1970s – you would see coaches streaming in for six
months of the year. I couldn’t walk down the pavement because the place was so busy.
But there was no investment and the place has deteriorated, the Pier ward is now
considered to be a place in poverty which would have been unthinkable.’
Many see the 1980s as the point where things started to decline in Clacton. The Town and
Country Building Society closed its head office, Butlins holiday camp shut down, and the
emergence of foreign holidays meant a lot of Clacton’s tourists became day trippers. Since
then, Clacton’s greatest problem has been a stagnating economy, fuelled largely by a lack of
sustainable jobs and high levels of worklessness. As the CSJ highlighted in its
Signed on, Written
off
report earlier this year, in one neighbourhood in the Pier ward, 54 per cent of people aged
16-64 are on out-of-work benefits – the fifth highest percentage in the country. Ironically, it
was the Pier area that had previously provided so much of the town’s employment.
or perhaps this extract sparks your understanding of why a personality cult like Ukip is so suitable for Nigel Farage’s ambitions – especially when you consider that even the pundits seem to believe the pollsters in predicting the Tory vote will collapse and follow their local personality to return Douglas Carswell in a different guise, to suit his aims and pander to his brand of populism and showmanship – ever the drama queen but all too popular for his willingness to cock a snoot at the grown ups of politics which is such a key to Farage’s rise to infamy!
Unlike many towns that suffer economic decline, Clacton’s population has actually been
increasing – rising by 29 per cent over the period of 30 years between 1981 and 2011 to
55,347.
56
Because property prices are considerably lower than London and other parts of
Essex, Clacton has become an increasingly popular town to retire to. A recent survey found
Clacton is the fifth most popular retirement coastal town in Britain, with nearly a third of
residents claiming state pensions.
57
Compared to national figures, Clacton has a lower than
average proportion of 25-44 year olds and higher than average number of people who are
65 and over.
58
This has created a situation where a large proportion of the population does
not work, leaving the local economy struggling. Although this does include some pensioners,
43 per cent of Clacton’s 16 to 74 year olds are economically inactive.
59
A former employee of the regional tourist board said: ‘It is difficult for a town when much of
its work is seasonal, but it’s a million times worse when you have large parts of the population
that don’t work at all. A lot of people moved to Clacton from London to retire and have
priced locals out of good property, that is a source of tension.’
The local economy is further hindered by low pay. In 2010 the median household income
in Clacton was £13,648,
60
compared to the median in England and Wales of £24,242. A
major barrier to employment is a low skills base – 41 per cent of adults in Clacton have
no qualifications, which is almost double the national average for England and Wales.

report earlier this year, in one neighbourhood in the Pier ward, 54 per cent of people aged
16-64 are on out-of-work benefits – the fifth highest percentage in the country. Ironically, it
was the Pier area that had previously provided so much of the town’s employment.
52
Just a few miles along the coast from Clacton is Jaywick, which according to the Indices of
Multiple Deprivation 2010 has the most deprived neighbourhood in England.
53
Some of the
people who use Clacton’s emergency food services and the soup kitchen walk from Jaywick,
a village that has suffered from isolation and deteriorating housing and now has high levels of
economic dependency. Some 35 per cent of working-age people claim some form of out-of-
work benefit
54
and 54 per cent of the population aged 16 and over have no qualifications.
55
One counsellor, who previously worked in Jaywick, said locals refer to it as ‘Beirut’ and that in
recent years ‘it has started policing itself ’. She added: ‘The problems in Jaywick seem to be a
lot more concentrated than the rest of Clacton. I’ve heard some fairly nasty stories. If someone
does something bad to you, the reaction is not to call the police but to deal with it yourself. It
almost seems like a warped version of care in the community.’

Turning the Tide | Case Study 3: Clacton-on-Sea
21
three
Unlike many towns that suffer economic decline, Clacton’s population has actually been
increasing – rising by 29 per cent over the period of 30 years between 1981 and 2011 to
55,347.
56
Because property prices are considerably lower than London and other parts of
Essex, Clacton has become an increasingly popular town to retire to. A recent survey found
Clacton is the fifth most popular retirement coastal town in Britain, with nearly a third of
residents claiming state pensions.
57
Compared to national figures, Clacton has a lower than
average proportion of 25-44 year olds and higher than average number of people who are
65 and over.
58
This has created a situation where a large proportion of the population does
not work, leaving the local economy struggling. Although this does include some pensioners,
43 per cent of Clacton’s 16 to 74 year olds are economically inactive.
59
A former employee of the regional tourist board said: ‘It is difficult for a town when much of
its work is seasonal, but it’s a million times worse when you have large parts of the population
that don’t work at all. A lot of people moved to Clacton from London to retire and have
priced locals out of good property, that is a source of tension.’
The local economy is further hindered by low pay. In 2010 the median household income
in Clacton was £13,648,
60
compared to the median in England and Wales of £24,242. A
major barrier to employment is a low skills base – 41 per cent of adults in Clacton have
no qualifications, which is almost double the national average for England and Wales.
61
The
number of children in Clacton passing five GCSEs at grades A*-C including English and maths
is only 43 per cent – below the national average in England of 59 per cent.
62
Sue Peachey, who has lived in Clacton for 25 years, is team leader at Open Road, an addictions
charity that has 11 centres for drug and alcohol treatment across and Essex and Suffolk.
She said: ‘What we have seen with many clients is they have never worked, and some come
from families where parents haven’t worked. It is a generational issue and it is difficult when
you are trying to help someone who has never been engaged with work.
‘We have a very good success rate but it is not easy. I think the problems affecting the local
area do make it more difficult to help people. There is no industry here, no jobs and that lack
of stability makes it very complicated for people trying to move off addictions – people want
some kind of motivation.’

Councillor Peter Halliday, Leader of Tendring District Council (TDC), said: ‘It is a fact that
Clacton has changed significantly over the years and, in keeping with many other seaside
towns, its economy has altered dramatically. Like other resorts we face a number of
difficult challenges with more people choosing to go abroad for their holidays. That said,
we still get more than one million visitors a year spending almost a million pounds a day
in the district. One of our biggest challenges is to find ways to encourage them to return
so that we can make the very most of that spending potential. That is still very much a
work in progress.’
The CSJ was told that one of the biggest social problems is that the town has a high number
of houses in multiple occupation (HMOs). One official referred to it as ‘bedsit land’. The Essex
town is home to a large number of bed and breakfasts, many of which have been turned into
bedsits or other kinds of temporary accommodation. Another Pier B&B owner said: ‘Because
there aren’t as many tourists staying overnight many of us B&B owners have started letting
some of our rooms out to the council for emergency accommodation. It’s not what you want
to be known for, as it is hardly going to encourage business to your B&B, but you have to pay
the bills.’ A Government report said HMOs can have a negative social impact on areas and in
some cases lead to crime and anti-social behaviour.
63
There is a forum of frontline organisations and individuals, Clacton Central Community
First, that comes together to discuss social problems and ways of countering them. One
forum member said: ‘One of the biggest problems is HMOs – overcrowding brings so many
problems to a society. Clacton simply doesn’t have the resources or things in place to help
people. Local people are doing their best to fight this, but it’s an uphill struggle and the
council and local authority only seem to be acknowledging this now.’ Concerns have been
expressed that HMOs can be detrimental to people’s health as well as the community. A
report by the University of Essex’s School of Health and Human Sciences recently looked at
the mental health of vulnerable people living in bedsits in seaside towns and found that the
living conditions can have a significant impact on people.
64
Councillor Halliday said: ‘There is an HMO problem in Clacton, especially in the Pier ward
which is in the heart of the town centre. We are tackling this by introducing new licensing
regulations to ensure that properties must come up to a certain standard before they can
become HMO.’
Some officials in the town have said that there has been an increase of HMOs since the
Tendring Night Shelter was opened in the town around four years ago. The shelter aims to
provide support so clients can become independent. Residents, who are allowed to stay for
28 nights, are provided with support from Tendring Mental Health Support and local charities.
After clients of the shelter complete their stay, many move into HMOs and need continuing
support. The shelter has drawn in some people from other parts of Essex and further afield

who have then remained in Clacton and continued to use local services. One former shelter
resident said: ‘The night shelter is a life saver. It offers great support, but obviously it means
there will be more people moving from different areas to Clacton so they can get help.’
Tracy Cooke, from Clacton, is the co-ordinator at the local Salvation Army Community
Centre, which runs a food bank service. She said: ‘The rise in food we hand out in recent
years has been incredible and is no longer sustainable so we are having to move to another
delivery model so we can cope with the demand. I have been here for seven years and in
the first two years we would have the occasional family coming in for food on referral. But
in the last four years we have seen a major increase. Our majority client base changed from
older people to males aged 25-45 who may be staying in bedsits or are couch surfing. In the
last year we gave out 2,500 food parcels, which I could never have expected.’
A frontline service provider said: ‘The picture of life in Clacton and where the town is going
is really frightening. What has happened here is indicative of many seaside towns, but much
more could be done. We would like to see more done with the Big Society Fund. Many
people lack the basics for getting into work or training, like something as obvious as a fixed
abode. More funding to social enterprises could improve the situation.’
The TDC has said that if it was given greater powers to deliver services, the local area would
benefit. Ian Davidson, Chief Executive of TDC, said: ‘Giving greater power and accountability
to the districts could help solve the problems in our local areas. We are on the ground and we
have the local knowledge and an understanding of the local agencies. If it’s done at a local level
you can actually switch money to being less reactive and more proactive. We recently ran a
‘families with complex needs’ pilot and it worked very well because we could co-ordinate
it better with the local agencies. We would like to see this delivery model used more in the
future – it is better for the taxpayer, the community and people we want to help.’
The local authority has agreed the town ‘is not fulfilling its potential’ and that it ‘lacks a
distinctive quality tourism/visitor offer’.
65
As well as improving current facilities, the council has
said it needs to develop new ones. It has been reported in local media that a £30 million
development may be outlined soon.
66
While fresh investment in the Pier area will be widely welcomed, it is becoming clear that
seaside towns, like Clacton, can no longer afford to rely solely on tourism and will need to
build a more stable economy.

Farage channels his inner Pol Pot

UKIP, the party keeps telling us, is not like all the other political parties.

Yet as the Conservative and Labour parties are coming in for justified criticism for trying to conceal their broken promises and ridicule-worthy releases by removing significant chunks of content from their websites and YouTube channels, UKIP has joined in the party political airbrushing of history with a Year Zero moment worthy of Pol Pot.

The party has, according to Bloomberg, wiped everything from its web archive prior to January this year and there is not a single Farage speech pre-dating March.  The story highlights a topical, apparent change of policy that has been erased as part of the disappeared UKIP 2010 election manifesto:

While the party now opposes the planned high-speed north-south rail line, the 2010 document advocated building three new routes. “We’re in the process of updating everything,” Heaver said by telephone. “We’re going through a policy review.”

We can but imagine on what other subjects UKIP is going to change tack now it thinks it has hidden its previous positions from scrutiny in an effort to avoid allegations of flip-flopping on policy.  It is becoming increasingly difficult to identify differences between the cynical mainstream party approach and the way Farage runs UKIP.  The long journey from idealistic mould-breaking party to full member of the establishment continues apace.

How long are UKIP members going to continue kidding themselves their party isn’t run in every bit as cynical a manner as the ones they profess to be so different from?

To view the original of this article CLICK HERE

To take just one simple to follow act of UKIP hypocrisy just follow how they set out with a clearly defined policy in their manifesto and note how that was quietly dropped to pander to the populist view to seek publicity and no doubt supporters riding on the back of a policy they were directly opposed to – without so much as a publicised debate or official announcement of their hypocritical and self serving vault face CLICK HERE.

It is not just disingenuous but downright dishonest and corrupt of UKIP to claim it is a libertarian party and non racist, when it is clearly authoritarian and controlled from the center by one man, mostly through his small clique of bullied and abused placements to ensure the absence of his finger prints on what is often criminal behaviour.

Do not forget the ever present mantra ‘UKIP is not a racist party’ which is patently untrue as one need only look at those Nigel Farage has allied his party with in the EU EFD Group, who are a rag tag of extremist racists, anti homosexuals, anti Jewish gutter sweepings of EU politics amongst whom are several convicted criminals found guilty in courts for their extreme political views, actions and comments.

Remember Farage not only founded the Pan EU EFD Political Group but also committed his party to supporting these low lifes – thereby prostituting UKIP for personal gain!

FARAGE, Nigel 77
Beneath that thin veneer of cheeky chappy, man of the people, with pint in hand is a drunkard, a bully and a ruthlessly devious hedonist – with his off shore tax haven bank accounts and team of foreign staff and unpleasant low lifes and deviants all controlled and bullied into compliance in return for bloated salaries from the public purse and positions and aspirations way beyond their abilities.

One need only note the standards of research of UKIP & its published lies and abuse of anyone who dares suggest they clean up their act. Their use of pseudonyms and false identities across the internet to lie and defame their critics is proof positive of just how unfit for public office UKIP is in general and their obvious support of theser low lifes and cowards is plain to see with its most senior executives giving them aid and from time to time joining in the lies and defamatory abuse.

Hi,
One would have thought that after his idiotic behaviour with his Golliwogs and his wife which cost Bill Etrheridge his credibility he would have learned SOMETHING!
It would seem not – having lost his status in The Tory Partyand sought a new stepping stone to the gravy train troughs in UKIP he has let a foolish piece of childish banter make him seen as the fool he clearly is.i do not for a moment believe that Bill Etheridge is the evil individual some portray him as though his own defence in the comments section do rather indicate a lack of common sense as he is clearly distanced from reality and at best a twit but seemingly has set out to deceive in order to defend his position!Frankly I care not what this silly chap has said but he does without doubt bring UKIP into disrepute, and they hardly have need of help in that direction!

With the level of common sense and sensitivity surely by now Bill Etheridge must realise he has absolutely no viable future in any political role with his propensity for doing the wrong thing and exposing himself to ridicule and his party to embarrassment!

Perhaps that very realisation that he has no future in politics is what drew him to a party with so little hope of a viable political future!

Top cop candidate under fire over “sick” Facebook banter about Jimmy Savile

A BLACK Country UKIP politician who is campaigning to become the West Midlands’ first elected top cop has come under fire for posting in a “disgusting” Facebook thread about Jimmy Savile.

Bill EtheridgeBill Etheridge

Bill Etheridge, who is in the running to become the first West Midlands Police Crime Commissioner, posted a comment on the social networking site in response to banter about claims the late BBC TV and radio star sexually abused young children up and down the country.

The first post read: “Dear Satan, Plz can u fix it for me for Jimmy Savile to burn for eternity with a massive spike up his ***.”

Another FB poster said: “now then,now then i’d still sit on his knee and have suck on his man cigar :)…”

After which Mr Etheridge joined in with: “How’s about that then?”

Top cop candidate under fire over "sick" Facebook banter about Jimmy SavileTop cop candidate under fire over “sick” Facebook banter about Jimmy Savile

Which was followed by a post by another FB user who said: “i’m glad he’s dead, leaves more kids for me”.

Mr Etheridge’s involvement in the banter has sparked outrage in the Black Country where he is busy campaigning ahead of the Police Crime Commissioner election – due to take place on November 15.

Conservative councillor Patrick Harley, who spotted the comments in a news feed on Facebook, said: “This is disgraceful, from a person who wants to run the West Midlands Police to be involved in this kind of banter of the sickest kind.

“Mr Etheridge should apologise and then forget about standing for public office in any form as he is clearly unfit. The guy is a buffoon. There are some things you just don’t laugh about.”

He is now calling on Mr Etheridge, aged 42, from Sedgley, to withdraw from the race for the top police job which comes with a £100,000 a year salary -adding: “He should resign immediately. There must be someone more suitable to stand for UKIP.”

Mr Etheridge, who is married with three step-children, said his comment was merely an attempt to highlight to his friend who started the thread “that they were being a bit silly”.

He said: “My comment was not in any way condoning.”

And he said the original post – which was not on his page – was “just expressing through humour a view that probably a lot of people hold”.

He did, however, express his disgust for the final comment posted beneath his own remark, describing it as “extremely bad taste and poor humour”.

He added: “I don’t know that person. It’s the kind of vile thing people put on Facebook.”

And he said he would be taking advice on whether the poster has broken the law.

The comments are believed to have now been removed and shortly after Mr Etheridge was contacted by the News he posted on his Facebook site: “If the allegations about the late Jimmy Saville are, as it appears, true then I can only say its a great shame he is not still alive to face trial and face a very lengthy jail term.”

It’s not the first time home fittings showroom manager Mr Etheridge, who works at Changing Rooms in Upper Gornal, has found himself in hot water through his Facebooking antics.

The self-styled politician made national headlines last year and was ousted from the Tory party after posing with a toy golliwog on the social networking site.

Tell-all book by UKIP staffer to expose ‘party corruption and racism’

3:48pm Fri October 12th

4 comments

A former UKIP staffer and parliamentary candidate at the last general election claims to be writing a book revealing dodgy goings-on at the core of the party having branded her defection from the Conservativesthe biggest mistake of my life“.

Jasna Badzak defected to UKIP in 2008, along with a swathe of Tories from Westminster, and stood in the Westminster North constituency in the 2010 elections. She then worked for six months as a press officer in the London office of MEP Gerard Batten.

In a series of messages on Twitter, Badzak has claimed that she will be making revelations about the alleged racism and corruption of top UKIP figures.

Great to see so many @ConsFuture members supporting Christine Emmett’s campaign in Corby and East Northants. Follow @byelection for updates.

I was prominent Tory, stood for Tories, defected to ,stood in GE2010 for UKIP the biggest mistake of my life @ConsFuture @Conservatives

As a former Parliamentary Candidate I know are racist party, wanting ‘rights for indigenous white Anglo-Saxons’ and nobody else

She also alleges misuse of EU parliament expenses by old Scrapbook favourite and UKIP candidate for Humberside Police & Crime Commissioner, Godfrey Bloom:

Just for you @johnprescott will Police CC Bloom reveal why he uses his parliamentary expenses to pay his private company staff @labour

And her claims don’t stop with Bloom, and threaten to plunge the party back into the same kind of controversy experienced when former MEP Ashley Mote was convicted of benefit fraud:

I will also be providing all detailed account of all MEP abusing their parliamentary expenses @bopanc @johnprescott @DavidPrescott

Speaking to Political Scrapbook this afternoon, Ms Badzak said:

 ”UKIP solely exists to put a few people in the position of MEP to steal as much money as possible for themselves.”

Apparently her book will be out before the 2014 EU Parliament elections, in which Nigel Farage’s party hopes to improve on its second place coup in the 2009 poll. When contacted, UKIP refused to comment.

Scrapbook looks forward to reading.

    No one is making anything up. I called the UKIP press twice, and both times they said they didn’t want to comment.

    When I called Gerard Batten’s office I didn’t even get an answer.

    I don’t think Jasna is complaining about “racist thoughts” Lawrence. The accusation seems to be of a racist agenda that would marginalise non-whites and non-British. I hope that’s not something you’re trying to defend!

    While we might all have racist thoughts, just as we all have have horrible thoughts of purge types (e.g. Hate and violence) to allow these horrible thoughts to set an agenda is completely unacceptable. No one’s talking about “policing thoughts”, we’re talking about actions that discriminate and marginalise people simply because of their race or background.

Hi,

UKIP’s utter irrelevance in the face of inevitability is increasingly clear!
UKIP, nor the parasites that in greed and self interest feed on its corpse, are not the sole cause of the problems merely no aspect of the solutions as they have indisputably proved!

As UKIP, in self interest and for personal gain of its leadership and their claque deliberately mislead and dupe with claims of achievement when in 20 years they have proved to be abject failures in British domestic politics we now see them making much of a single shoddy little poll sampling views that would seem to show them as holding a following of 12% is of course a clear case of how to lie with statistics.

UKIP leadership fail to point out the extent of their ineptitude, failure and betrayal such that they do not show they have achieved little, if not nothing of consequence, in 20 years for our Country.

UKIP fail to show that even were the 12% claimed to translate to actual votes it would utterly fail to gain the election of a single solitary MP.

Poll results have consistently failed to materialise as votes – Yert UKIP makes much of a poll which specifically named them and thus gained a better than normal % support – UKIP have never lived up to the normal results predicted so why when the poll is worded in a favourable manner to increase % response for UKIP might they legitimately claim an actual likelihood of increased votes at the ballott box – The ONLY poll that counts!

IF UKIP were to double this best ever prediction, as in this latest poll, they MIGHT get an MP or mabe a few MPs elected – that of course would be utterly catastrophic for UKIP and signal their imminent demise as they would have absolutely zero control over which MPs were elected!Imagine the bright light of journalistic investigation and the competitive nature of politics shone directly on let us say 10 individuals as MPs when in all likelihood they would be such low lifes and public farces acting as THE party as Mick McGough, Bob Feel Martinis, Peter Reeve, Douglas Denny, Gawain Towler, Gerard Batten, Derek Clark, Stephen Wolfe, Stuart Gulleford, Kevin Mahoney and similar inept and inexperienced motor mouths and pond life.

Such individuals in their unprincipled self interest and self serving greed would be all too clearly perfect bait to feed to the media sharks and out of control and portraying their political ineptitude and blatant ignorance, as if for the party, they would ensure its demise within a month!

Let us consider the realities rather than the unlikely fantasy that UKIP could make some sort of breakthrough in its present leaderless, strategyless, tactic free, policy defecit and experience bypass state.

I incline to the view that this may well be the EU’s new proctology center, due to open in 2014, at a cost of around £300Million, with its multi coloured specially designed carpet to hide unpleasant multi cultural stains, in the strange and creepy Brussels where tomorrow the parole of Mark Dutroux’s accomplice and ex wife using a new name comes up for parole and release – where better than Belgium for such events and as you can see the building has a very graphic & styalised representation of The Colon:
Presumably this vain glorious gilded palace has a representation of a colon, as we all know of what it will be full!

Truism it may be but as with most truism – It Is True:
Pride comes before a fall and it looks all too likely that this latest piece of tasteless and profligate self indulgence, by ‘The Commrades’ at the expense of those they dishonestly claim to serve, may well be the harbinger of nemesis for The EU.

It is most unlikely that all the present members of this vile body will still be vassals of this bureacratic nightmare by the time it has finished its new and yet more obscene venue.

Contrary to current belief I am not of the opinion that Germany will Leave-The-EUro but rather that despite its obvious failure as a common currency Gerrmany is all too well aware that for them to quit the EUro would be tantamount to the end of their odious EUgenic experiment and social engineering – No there will. I believe, be a very different order in the partings on route to collapse.

It would seem that the failure of The EUro and the entire idiotic and undemocratic EU scam is in fact in inverse proportion to the protestations of success and boasts of forward progress from the unelected bureaucratic parasites feeding on the corpse of their Frankenstein like creation.

It is, in my opinion, likely that Greece will be the first to leave as despite protestations to the contrary from the corrupt EU political elite, in their normal undemocratic and self serving manner, to the contrary Greece will find it increasingly non viable to be shackled to the economic corpse of The EU via EUro membership.

Greece will quit the EUro and it is just a matter of when – Despite costly efforts to delay the inevitable it will happen.

Like surgery the longer the abscecess remains unexised the more radical will be the effect when finally the surgery is conducted!Had Greece and the others of the PIIGS been given an early and orderly exit from the constraints and failure of The EUro damage limitation would have been a possible option and now the longer it is staved off the more radical will be the amputation.

Arrogance & hubris will inevitably predicate that the self serving bureacrats will postpone the departure from The EUro until it has spread from being a treatable abscess to requiring major surgery and even the probability of general septicemia of The EU experiment and its demise.

As for time scales – Greece may well leave BEFORE the German elections to enhance Angela Merkel’s chances of re-election but more likely shortly before Christmas or even during the Christmas break when it is easiest to use events to bury bad news!

It seems likely that all of the PIIGS will have been forced to act with wisdom and quit The EUro scam to save their terminally flawed and failed economies – a disease which is endemic in The EU due to over regulation and footling laws sabotaging any concepts of competitive recovery or viable economic incentive provided by fiscal agility.

The fall out of PIIGS could take as long as 2 years with the EU desperately seeking to keep them in The EUro and the scam alive!Within 5 years the steps to continue the EU will be increasingly desperate and will lead through a period of a two maybe even three tiered EU narrowing down to a central core dominated by France & Germany with increasingly fewer parasitic Countries in tow.

Thus with the obvious failure, as clearly predicted, the EU will finally disintegrate as the experiment becomes more clearly unworkable in its failure.
As with the various Countries that Leave-The-EUro the longer it is delayed the more consequential will be the damage!The time for there to be any hope of stable dismantling is possibly already past and it will be noted that even those groups that claim to advocate that we Leav-The-EU have so little faith in their ability OR perhaps so little integrity that they do not believe their own rhetoric and thus have absolutely no strategy nor tactics in place nor any plan for any type of secure and safe exit and survival plan.

The failure of The EU is obviously inevitable – just as with a rocket as it accelerates even invisible weaknesses develope at an increasing rate to become first hairline cracks and then widen to show their catastrophic nature as the whole flies apart.
So very like The EU as it accelerates its attempts at control and management and extends its bribes and the nature of the ‘Gin Palaces’ of its offices as reassurance to those who wish to denny or even delay the inevitable demise of the scam.

Increasingly the nature of the scheme will demand that like any similar Ponzi Scheme the creation by printing of an ever more worthless currency MUST take place to paper over the cracks.

Sadly the personal greed of those ‘claiming’ to wish to Leave-The-EU will, as with UKIP betray the electorate to prolong their ride on the Gravy Train feeding from the witches tit for their personal perceptions of enrichment – duped by their own self interest, treachery and greed.

Even a moment of qiet observation will clearly show ever step of the way in my prediction is in place NOW!

There is a clear limit to the inevitability of failure and the certainty of disintegration as the weaknesses develop through unseen hairline cracks to catastrophic disintegration.

Those who actually know me, rather than those who have fallen for the defamatory lies that have been used to extend their personal influence and self serving greed will be aware that over the last 30 years I have consistently displayed my opposition to EU membership, which can be clearly traced back to the early 1960s – my aim has increasingly been to aid our dissassociation from this evil but even more it has been a process of seeking to warn of the catastrophy ahead – which is inevitable.

Be minded that when I was born in 1946 the world population was a mere 2 Billion a figure which has grown chaotically to over 7 Billion in the intervening 65 years.

The planet can obviously sustain such numbers and could probably sustain 50 Billion but what is ever more apparent is the ineptitude of our respective leaders to manage the change and change is exponentially escalating towards catastrophic chaos and the subsequent horrors of total societal collapse across the globe.

We have noted various groups from capitalists, communists, to environmentalists, warmists, globalists and opportunists seeking in turn to defame each other for their own personal gain and greed – yet no one has set out to nor managed to manage the transition.
Similarly even those purposting to be EUroSceptics or making a pretence of seeking to Leave-The-EU as quasi political parties like UKIP, BNP and other similar groups have even attempted to define an exit and survival strategy to dismantle the scams.

Be warned – as I have regularly warned over the last 40+ years, mankind may not survive the changes brought about by their own greed and dishonest efforts at personal gain – it is only the unbridled idiocy of Victorian superstitions, passed off as religious beliefs, that even dupe the few to the belief that mankind is in some way consequential to anthing other than mankind itself!It is this unbridled arrogance that has given quarter to such evils as Globalism, Communism, The EU, NAFTA or even religions themselves!

Good luck!.

Greg_L-W..

UKIP gets a somewhat dubious result in The FoD!

UKIP gets a somewhat dubious result in The FoD!

It is hard to see how the achievement of 16% of the electorate voting a man with Alan Preest’s track record onto even a council as irrelevant as he has gained can help UKIP!

Surely UKIP should seek to improve its record of honesty at all cost, not link its reputation with such a man for so paltry and insignificant a post!

.
~~~~~~~~~~#########~~~~~~~~~~
.
Hi,
it seems that despite a relatively high profile PPC in The FoD and the long term home of UKIP’s full time umbrella salesman who has for many years held a well paid UKIP job the best they seem to have managed is a largely irrelevant TOWN councillor!
To be fair Alan Preest obtained a VERY good percentage, with 74% of the 22% who turned out to vote giving 16% of the electorate (which would tend to reflect the irrelevance of town & parish councils where frequently for lack of interest town clerks tend to try to fill the seats by co-option).
The result was even more interesting when you note Alan Preest had been a COUNTY councillor but was seemingly forced out over controversy and would seem to have been forced to resign from The Tory Party due to his inability to clear his name as a common thief.
Of course he fits right in with a certain sector of UKIP leadership and its odious and dishonest claque.
HOW can UKIP be taken seriously if time and time again it opts to aid and promote liars, cheats, thieves and low calliber wannabes?
You may recal the idiotic comment of the proven liar and cheat Mick McGough CLICK HERE who asked on the dishonest and squalid UKIP controlled public forum owned by Anthony Butcher:

Do MEP staffers write for the Junius/GLW axis

With both sites carrying a piece from a MEP staffer do they write for them or are the articles pillaged?

I think we should be told

Firstly since when are Junius blog and those who post to it and myself an ‘axis’ – there are many supporters of the principle of Leave-The-EU who would like to see UKIP cleaned up and the low lifes and scoundrels who have hitched a ride on the gravy train removed to make UKIP fit for purpose with basic ethics that would justify the votes of decent, moral, informed individuals to turn UKIP into a force for leadership of the Leave-The-EU movement – honesty and probity, transparency and duty may be alien concepts to Mick McGough and his self seeking ilk currently aiding The EU’s control of these United Kingdoms.
Whether the all too obvious assistance these odious UKIPpers give the EU is deliberate or through dishonesty and stupidity is a moot point, though the track record would seem to indicate it is done out of self interest and with no thought of others and in betrayal of these United Kingdoms.
I appreciate this silly little man is, in this instance, only mischief making and dishonestly setting up a piece to try to defame myself and those who contribute to ‘Junius’ based on his lies, distortions and general lack of understanding of ethics, morality or common decency – a trait followed by many of UKIP’s leadership and its cowardly claque of internet liars and stalkers.
Just as with the article Mick McGough queried it was clearly stated the origins of the article and fully sourced by me. It was also pointed out that it was first published on an EU originated blog written by an EU employee Gary Cartwright who is employed by the EU in an official capacity working for the non ‘escrit’ aligned group of MEPs and happens to be assigned to work for Mike Nattrass, Trevor Colman and Nikki Sinclaire.
Just as I have shown in virtually every factual case I have published both the origins of the facts published and why I incline to believe them, as I believe truthfulness and accuracy are important both in blogging and life.
In the instance below regarding UKIP’s newly elected town councillor his track record of seemingly being forced to resign both as a county councillor and as a Tory member anmd councillor would clearly seem to be because he is a thief – and the source of the information is clearly shown – this being my practice to seek to ensure accuracy despite the lies of Mick McGough which are clearly proven and well documented snd hid desperate attempts to dishonestly defame.
Challenged to substantiate his lies about my blog and that of Junius; Mick McGough has proved beyond doubt his claims were dishonest.
The very best he can come up with in 1,000s of postings on my blogs is that I ‘may’ have misused technical jargon/information relative to his work experiemce as a bean counter, relative to accountants/auditors overseeing accounts etc., as is their job as hirelings for people and companies!!
Would anyone of any probity wish to have a low life liar like Mick McGough (an NEC placeman for UKIP) anywhere near their accounts when he is well documented as untrustworthy and dishonest CLICK HERE
With the undeniable track record of dishonesty, corruption, lies and theft of UKIP MEPs, leadership and senior figures Alan Preest will be in suitable company as anb unrehabilitated thief it seems yet with the claim:
More recently, he played a key role in digging up financial irregularities at Lydney Town Council which led to a rebuke for the authority from the Audit Commission’.
Alan Preest could find both fellow travellers and if he has in fact decided to go straight he would have a long term and full time job exposing the financial irregularities of UKIP – perhaps he would be well advised to hire a team and take on apprentices to keep up as clearly with the length of time the police take investigating the dishonesty of the likes of Tom Wise, David Bannerman, Stuart Agnew, John Ison, Derek Clark and others and failing to understand ‘Justice delayed is justice denied’ perhaps he could help clean up UKIP.

Alan’s comeback

Saturday, August 04, 2012

ALAN Preest will make a return to local government after being elected back onto Lydney Town Council.

Mr Preest, a former Conservative councillor who joined UKIP last year, won the by-election for the council’s Lydney North ward with 73.9 per cent of the vote this week.

 return:   Alan Preest.
  1. return: Alan Preest.

He returns to the council from which he resigned in July last year.

Mr Preest said: “I’d like to thank the people of Lydney North for putting their trust in me and I look forward to re-joining the council, where I will continue where I left off, by leaving no stone unturned as I seek to ensure that the council works in the best interests of our community.”

Mr Preest is a former district and county councillor but has been embroiled in controversy before.

In 2008, he resigned from the Conservative Party after failing to clear his name for shoplifting.

He continued as an independent councillor but was then suspended from Forest of Dean District Council in 2009 for “totally unacceptable behaviour” at a public meeting in Lydney. He was reinstated but lost his seat by just seven votes in last year’s local elections.

More recently, he played a key role in digging up financial irregularities at Lydney Town Council which led to a rebuke for the authority from the Audit Commission.

Professor Tim Congdon CBE, from Huntley, UKIP Forest of Dean’s Parliamentary spokesman, said: “This is an excellent result, well deserving of the effort and hard work that has been put in by Alan and his team.

“UKIP Forest of Dean look forward to future local elections, and giving the people of the Forest area the chance to vote for a fresh political party, whose message is becoming increasingly popular, at a time that public faith in the mainstream parties continues to diminish.”

Hi,

UKIP leadership would seem to have taken no clear action, presumably because they have so very few members elected to domestic positions in politics even the dregs they have are to UKIP better than nothing!

Councillor slammed over town hall info leak

CARPETED ... controversial South Tyneside councillor David Potts.CARPETED … controversial South Tyneside councillor David Potts.

By PAUL KELLY
Published on Wednesday 27 June 2012 16:00

A CONTROVERSIAL South Tyneside councillor has been carpeted after a Town Hall data leak.

 

Coun. David Potts was investigated by the Standards Committee, having already been given a police caution for “the disclosure of highly sensitive and confidential personal information about individuals” in March.

It found he was in breach of three provisions of the Council’s Code of Conduct, which all elected members pledge to uphold.

Coun Potts’s conduct was in breach of rules which forbid the disclosure of confidential information and which requires councillors to treat people with respect.

The UKIP member for the Cleadon and East Boldon ward was also found to have brought the council, and his office as an elected member, into disrepute.

Coun Potts has been formally censured by the Standards Committee and will see the withdrawal of his facilities for six months, meaning that he will be restricted in the support services he will receive from council staff.

His computer equipment, including his Blackberry and laptop, will be retained by the council for six months, and all his contact with authority officers in the same time period will have to come through a single named contact.

He must also write a letter of apology to all members of the Council within 28 days.

Coun Potts can appeal against this decision within 21 days of receiving the decision in full.

A council spokesman said: “Our residents rightly expect the highest standards to be upheld by their elected representatives, and it is our responsibility to tackle inappropriate behaviour if it arises.

“The sub-committee received the investigator’s recommendations and considered representations submitted by Coun Potts before concluding that serious breaches of the code had taken place.

“This ruling sends a clear signal that South Tyneside Council does not tolerate inappropriate behaviour at any level.”

The Gazette was unable to contact Coun Potts for comment today.
