Hi,

UKIP has sold its soul to the far-Right: How leader Gerard Batten, who is married to a Filipina immigrant, has made Tommy Robinson a key lieutenant, calls Islam a ‘death cult’ and has ultra hard line on migration

  • Gerard Batten has been married to Filipina wife, Frances Lina, 60, for 30 years 
  • Proud of his Anglo-Saxon bloodline, he’s outspoken in views against immigration
  • He abhors the Koran, though he has admitted to never having studied it closely 
  • All this would be of little consequence if Mr Batten was not the leader of UKIP

Gerard Batten is an enigma wrapped in a bright purple blazer and banana yellow tie. 

He left school with few, if any, academic qualifications (he won’t confirm) and believes the EU was planned by the Nazis.

But he is also — or claims to be on his CV — a member of Mensa, the ‘high IQ Society’.

Intensely proud of his pure Anglo-Saxon bloodline, he’s outspoken in his views against immigration. Yet 30 years ago he married — and is still married to — a Filipina woman whose family can’t understand the paradox.

He abhors the Koran, though he has admitted to never having studied it closely. And while he is close to Russians who describe themselves as political dissidents against the Moscow government, he is a regular contributor to Vladimir Putin’s English language propaganda arm, Russia Today.

He has also become increasingly irritated with the Mail’s research into the most basic facts of his personal history, tweeting that we have asked a bunch of ‘ludicrous’ questions about him. 

All this would be of little consequence if Mr Batten, 64, was not the leader of a political party which has changed the UK’s political landscape, and probably its future: UKIP. 

His predecessor, Henry Bolton, had been its sixth leader in just 12 months — having to step down after his 25-year-old glamour model mistress posted racist tweets about Meghan Markle, and offensive comments about the Grenfell Tower disaster families.

The manner of Mr Bolton’s demise seemed to confirm what was already apparent: that the party which won more UK seats in the 2014 European Parliament elections than either the Conservatives or Labour had become an irrelevant joke. 

Enter the stern, midnight-haired Mr Batten; an MEP and one of UKIP’s original founders.

Aside from the flamboyant wardrobe he wore to annoy other MEPs in the Strasbourg chamber, there is nothing remotely comic about the course he has set since taking the helm last April.

For he is exploiting the chaos currently engulfing British politics.

While Putin, who has supported populist groups across the EU, looks on with satisfaction at the chaos engulfing British politics and the fracturing of Europe, the far-Right here believes it can exploit, if not fill, a vacuum. 

UKIP was founded by Mr Batten and others to bring about Britain’s exit from the EU. 

Its core support lay in Middle England and white working-class areas which opposed the EU’s open borders that allowed mass immigration.

Now Mr Batten has a new and more radical vision for the UKIP of 2019 and beyond. He says it has already attracted thousands of new young members. 

But it has also frightened off many of the old guard, because the Batten vision involves a key role for a man who’s become poster boy for the far-Right and racists across the world.

Stephen Yaxley-Lennon, better known as Tommy Robinson, is a convicted fraudster and hooligan, as well as being founder and former leader of that boot boy collective the English Defence League (EDL).

But recent events have made him a global social media star; a ‘free speech martyr’.

This week he was in the headlines once again as the 16- year-old Syrian refugee who was ‘water-boarded’ in a filmed racist attack in Huddersfield says he will sue Facebook ‘for not stopping Robinson posting accusations he violently attacked three English girls’.

Mr Batten has been courting Robinson for almost a decade. Now he is in a position to put their ‘bromance’ to work.

Under UKIP rules — although they may change — no former member of the EDL or the overtly-racist British National Party (BNP) is allowed to join. But last year, Mr Batten took Robinson on as his adviser.

Some in UKIP fear Robinson is being groomed to succeed his boss, who has said he’ll stand down sometime this year. UKIP will then become a ‘new British National Party’.

Mr Batten has pooh-poohed this, but told the BBC: ‘I’m taking [UKIP] in a new direction, which is that I want to make it a mass movement.’

Both he and Robinson are Islamophobes.

Mr Batten has described Islam as a ‘death cult’. His ‘interim’ UKIP manifesto calls for Muslim-only prisons and an abolition of hate crime laws. 

In 2006, he suggested that all 3.7 million Muslims in the UK should sign a code of good conduct.

Tory MP Robert Halfon said this was ‘literally akin to the Nazis saying Jews should wear a yellow star’.

On his Facebook page on Christmas Eve, Robinson posted the word ‘UKIP’ and the promise: ‘A revolution is coming.’

If so, it has humble origins.

Mr Batten was born and raised on the Isle of Dogs in East London.

The old white, working-class population of the dockland peninsular had long felt they were neglected by government and under threat by Bengali incomers.

In 1993, the BNP — founded by former members of the neo-Nazi National Front — secured its electoral breakthrough there.

Mr Batten had left by then. After a brief period working as a bookbinder with his brother Harold — who is said to design the UKIP stationery — he was a salesman for British Telecom until elected as an MEP for London in 2004. 

When Nigel Farage became UKIP leader in 2006, he concentrated on European issues, while Mr Batten focused on what he perceived as the Islamic threat.

Colleagues say he hated attending the chambers in Strasbourg and Brussels. And he disliked and envied Farage, who was public school-educated and charismatic. Batten was neither.

What he didn’t mind was sharing a platform with racist loons. In 2011 he addressed the far-Right Traditional Britain Group, whose vice president Gregory Lauder-Frost was last year reportedly recorded calling broadcaster Vanessa Feltz, a ‘fat Jewish s**g’ who ‘lived with a negro’.

Lauder-Frost also spoke in derogatory terms about Doreen Lawrence, mother of murdered black teenager Stephen Lawrence, and advocated the deportation of non-white Britons to their ‘natural homelands’.

At the European Parliament Batten has hosted the far-Right internet troll Carl Benjamin, who once described opponents as ‘acting like a bunch of n******s’. In another tweet, Benjamin told a female Labour MP: ‘I wouldn’t even rape you.’ He attended Mr Batten’s first UKIP conference as leader, and spoke.

Another speaker at the conference was Mark Meechan, aka Count Dankula, who is best-known for being prosecuted over a video — described in court as ‘anti-Semitic’ — showing his pet dog performing Nazi salutes to commands such as ‘Sieg Heil’.

But the most contentious Batten recruit to UKIP is Tommy Robinson, whom he made his adviser on prison reform and sex abuse gangs in November.

This prompted the resignation from the party of three MEPs, Nigel Farage and an unknown number of other members.

One of the MEPs, William Dartmouth, said he left because Mr Batten had introduced ‘outlandish people and extreme Right-wing groups’. 

Robinson was jailed for 13 months for contempt of court in relation to filming people in a grooming case

He add: ‘Mr Batten is setting Robinson up to be the leader. Resigning members have been replaced by people who support Mr Robinson and his ilk. [Batten’s] conduct is an utter disgrace.’

Robinson was jailed for 13 months for contempt of court in relation to filming people in a grooming case. 

The sentence was quashed and the case referred to the Attorney General. The case attracted worldwide attention, and Robinson received the support of American TV star Roseanne Barr among others.

Mr Batten spoke at a number of events held to support Robinson, who has one million followers on Facebook. But the UKIP leader’s ‘fixation’ with Robinson can be traced back almost a decade.

The eureka moment apparently came in February 2011, when the then relatively unknown Robinson was interviewed on BBC2’s Newsnight by Jeremy Paxman. ‘Gerard [Batten] watched the interview and was ecstatic,’ recalls an ex-colleague. ‘He said: “What a brilliant young guy. How do we get in touch?”’

Last spring, after leaving court Robinson and Mr Batten were treated to a three-course lunch at the House of Lords by former Ukip leader Lord Pearson of Rannoch, who told the Mail this week that Mr Batten was ‘a great guy’. 

Lord Pearson added: ‘One of his most extraordinary characteristics is that he believes he lacks charisma.’ The peer said Robinson had ‘great energy’.

While Mr Batten’s relationship with Robinson is unambiguous, there are question marks over his links to other dubious interest groups.

Take Putin’s Russia, for instance. Mr Batten has criticised Russia and accused it of hacking his website.

He has also employed as his researcher, a Russian called Pavel Stroilov who arrived in the UK in 2006 seeking political asylum. Mr Stroilov refused to talk to the Mail last week.

Mr Batten has known a number of other Russian exiles in the UK, including Alexander Litvinenko who was murdered by suspected Russian agents in 2006.

Intriguing links are being examined on the other side of the Atlantic.

Investigators in the U.S. are looking at the alleged relationship between Donald Trump’s election campaign and Moscow.

An area they are interested in is Nigel Farage’s dealings with WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange, who’s taken sanctuary in the Ecuadorian embassy in London since 2012, after jumping bail in a case where he was accused of sex attacks in Sweden. 

Emails from Hillary Clinton’s campaign, leaked by WikiLeaks, are thought to have been originally hacked by Russian agents in 2006.

Mr Farage, who denies any impropriety, was seen visiting the Ecuadorian embassy when Assange was inside. But it was Mr Batten — not Mr Farage — who originally forged the link between UKIP and Assange.

In 2011, Mr Batten and Pavel Stroilov attended one of Assange’s extradition hearings and held a small ‘free speech’ demo outside. Documents show that in February 2011, Mr Batten met Assange’s lawyer to explore ways in which he could help the hacker.

Mr Batten then spoke up for Assange at the European Parliament and attended Assange’s 40th birthday party. 

He also suggested in a blog post that if Assange failed to block his extradition he should seek asylum. He wrote: ‘I would be delighted to advise Mr Assange on how to go about it.’

And that’s exactly what Assange did the following summer, at great cost to the British taxpayer, who has had to pay for six years of policing of his embassy refuge.

Also unclear is Mr Batten’s relationship with James Goddard, the far-Right activist arrested for allegedly harassing MP Anna Soubry outside Parliament earlier this month. 

Mr Batten has denied knowing James Goddard and said it was ‘malicious’ to suggest there was a connection. But there are pictures of the two together.

All this is a puzzle to Mr Batten’s in-laws in the Far East.

He married his wife, Frances Lina, now 60, after she came to the UK from the Philippines in search of a better life. They have two sons.

Speaking to the Mail in the family’s hometown of Bambang, Ike Cayaban, Mr Batten’s brother-in-law said: ‘I’m quite surprised about why is he so against immigration, because there could come a time when he could ban people like Filipinos. But there are so many Filipino nurses there who are helping British nurses.’ 

The retired librarian added: ‘It is the prerogative of the British government to think of the welfare of their citizens. But to a certain extent they should also help people. No man is an island. And I think that is also true of a country.’

Mr Cayaban, 68, said the politician had only visited the Philippines once since marrying his sister in 1988. He said that during the visit, around two decades ago, Mr Batten did not discuss his political opinions or views with family members.

Frances Lina, who now works in the courts service, moved to the UK after completing a medical technologies course in Manila.

She was studying for a business course at the time of her marriage to Mr Batten. Her eldest sibling Florencia, 75, had earlier moved to the UK after training as a teacher in the Philippines. She still lives in London, where she is retired after working as a carer and shop-owner.

The siblings’ younger brother Benjamin also moved to the UK with his Filipina wife to work as a painter and decorator, before returning home several years later.

Mr Cayaban said: ‘They wanted to find work there because it was greener pastures and we belonged to a poor family. It was a challenge for them and we had no other choice.’

He said the siblings, whose parents worked as farmers, belonged to ‘the lower echelon of the [Philippines] society’.

His puzzlement was echoed by Alan Sked, UKIP’s first leader, who has said of Mr Batten’s negative views on immigrants taking British jobs: ‘I felt like saying: “Your wife has been working [here] since she came to Britain.” ’

Such a contradiction does not concern Gerard Batten as he busily rallies the far-Right to his flag. For now, the purple-clad enigma marches on.

Hi,

Ukip Leader Facing Press Ridicule

Although the party is languishing in the polls, and its leader’s obsession with the far-right is bringing it little more than ridicule, the rump of saloon bar propper-uppers otherwise known as UKIP is about to hit the news stands in a way which is already causing that leader considerable discomfort. Because it’s all about him.
I em not a racialist but, und zis is a big but …


The inmates of the Northcliffe House bunker – whether the paper concerned is the Daily Mail or Mail on Sunday is not yet clear – clearly do not have enough on their collective plates with Brexit. So they have decided to delve into the wacky world of Adolf von Batten, and what they have found there has been deemed newsworthy enough for it to be given significant prominence in a weekend edition of one of the two titles.

Exactly what the Mail titles may have in mind was outlined by John O’Connell of Far Right Watch, who told his followers “The Daily Mail or Mail on Sunday, or both, have a take-down prepared on #Ukip’s @GerrardBatten for this weekend. We hear there’s lots of new stuff, including criminality. Expect #Ukip head implosions and tantrums galore”. Criminality? Some may be surprised. They should not be.
It has been put to me on more than one occasion that Batten’s links to bent coppers are long-standing and potentially damaging to at least one Police force. It has also been put to me that he has been able to use these links to damage his rivals and keep the heat off himself. What Batten may not know is that the press also does links to bent coppers, and has done for decades. Why d’you think phone hacking nearly got covered up?
The Met knew it had enough evidence to sink the Murdoch empire. It pretended it didn’t. The Murdoch mafiosi was well in with the Met. They were not the only ones in the press pack to be so favoured. Anyone who thinks their Police contacts trump those of the press establishment is not dealing from a full deck.
So how has Batten reacted to the impending defenestration by the Rothermere goons? Simples. The idiot has admitted it’s on its way. “Not content with sending a ‘journalist’ thousands of miles to harass my wife’s family in the Philippines last week the Daily Mail has sent our Party Chairman a bunch of ludicrous questions about me. They plan more hatchet jobs. Not once have they ever asked me about Brexit”.
Ask yourselves why the Mail should dispatch someone to the Philippines. Clue: it’s not for the purposes of bringing the readers a heartwarming story of love across the national, and indeed racial, divide. Gerard Batten is about to be exposed and ridiculed big time, and there is nothing he can do about it. Except rant about the hated MSM.
If there is nothing in the Mail’s exposé, then he has nothing to worry about, and the story will die a death. If there is, UKIP will become even more of a laughing stock. And if he gets defamed in the process, well, tough titty Adolf. You and your pals don’t fret when you’re all doling that out to anyone else. What’s sauce for the goose, and all that.
Gerard Batten is about to follow Paul Nuttall into becoming the comedy leader of a comedy political party. It couldn’t happen to a more deserving bigot.

Hi,

UKIP leader Gerard Batten and two other UKIP MEPs (Stuart Agnew and Jane Collins) have joined Marine Le Pen’s ENF group in the European Parliament. Batten had resigned from Farage’s more moderate EFDD group in December to sit as an independent. The far right ENF group was founded in 2014 following discussions between Marine Le Pen and Geert Wilders, and consists of a number of quasi-fascist parties across Europe.

Hi,

Ukip leader dubbed ‘the mad old grandad’ is accused by former members of overseeing a ‘revolution’ to shift the party towards the far-Right

  • Gerard Batten has been accused of dramatically steering Ukip to the far-right 
  • His acceptance to take the job last year prompted a wave of resignations
  • Former leader Nigel Farage handed in his resignation due to Batten’s ‘flirtation with extremists’

For years, he was thought of by his Ukip colleagues as a ‘mad old grandad’ single-minded in his dislike of two things – the EU and Islam.

Former ‘harmless’ MEP Gerard Batten, 64, has now been accused of dramatically steering Ukip to the far-Right since taking over as leader.

His sudden ascent to the top job last year prompted a wave of resignations – including that of the party’s former leader, Nigel Farage – due to his flirtation with extremists.

Mr Batten’s recent decision to appoint former English Defence League leader Tommy Robinson as an adviser led campaigners to warn that the far-Right has been given a stage in mainstream British politics.

Former senior Ukip figures yesterday accused Mr Batten of deliberately staging a ‘revolution’ to shift the party’s focus from Brexit to a stance criticising Islam and multiculturalism.

An ex-MEP, who recently quit the party, said: ‘Many of Gerard’s beliefs would have been very well settled in the BNP.’

Mr Batten has previously courted controversy by describing Islam as a ‘death cult’ and calling for British Muslims to sign a charter of understanding in which they denounce violence.

His dramatic effect on the Ukip since taking over as leader in February 2018 came after years spent languishing on its fringes when colleagues said he became ‘obsessed’ with Islam.

Mr Batten first developed an interest in politics as a child, watching current affairs programmes about the Cold War at home in London’s Isle of Dogs.

As the son of a shipping clerk, he has described his childhood as typically working class. He landed his first job as a bookbinder at the age of 18 before becoming a BT salesman. While working for the telecoms giant Mr Batten met his wife Frances Lina, now 60, who had moved to the UK as an immigrant from the Philippines.

The couple, who married in 1988 while she was studying business, have two sons and live in a £630,000 terraced house in East London.

Mr Batten’s role as a trade union official at BT helped fuel a growing political interest. He later fondly recalled ‘violent arguments between me and the lefties’. In 1991 he joined the Anti-Federalist League, formed to campaign against the Maastricht Treaty.

Alongside Mr Farage and party founder Alan Sked, Batten helped to transform the body into Ukip two years later. Mr Sked, now professor emeritus at the London School of Economics, said: ‘When I set up Ukip he was a perfectly decent, moderate family man.’

But the academic, who left the party in 1997, said he was shocked years later to receive campaign literature from him. ‘It was Gerard Batten saying we should stop immigration and foreigners taking our jobs,’ said Mr Sked. ‘I felt like saying, “Your wife has been working [here] since she came to Britain”.’ Mr Sked raised alarm bells about Ukip’s current focus on Islam, adding: ‘He will take the party into a cul-de-sac and kill it.’

After Mr Batten became an MEP in 2004 party officials began to become alarmed about his views on Islam and he was almost deselected in 2014. Jonathan Arnott, a leading Ukip MEP who quit the party in January last year, said: ‘He sees everything as black and white – that either Muslims are good or they are bad. And he has decided they are bad.’

Mr Batten’s most controversial move has been his vocal support for Robinson. Mr Batten has claimed he could help transform Ukip into a ‘mass movement’.

Party officials have credited his decision to attract new supporters with boosting membership numbers from 18,000 last year to just under 27,000 now.

Hi,

it does look as if Ukip are getting ever more desperate, I guess rightly so, but surely they could have found someone of experience to act as Party Chairman until they could find an individual of some stature, gravitas and obvious ability rather than select a random functionary from head office at Lextrum Office.

McINTYRE, Tony 01

I note the incoming Party Chairman has started out by a direct challenge to the current Party Leader over the foolish concept of seeking to recruit the very dubious Tommy Robinson!

I guess we have the early rounds of yet another round of Ukip fighting like ferrets in a sack!

Minded that Ukip is so financially bereft it doesn’t even have sufficient cash for printing!

Message from Party Chairman – Kirstan Herriot

Message from Party Chairman – Kirstan Herriot

Dear Member,

As you are now probably aware, Tony McIntyre has taken the decision to stand down as Party Chairman. He dedicated far more than was expected and he was a pleasure to work with. It is right that he puts his own health first and I would personally like to offer him the thanks he clearly deserves. He has made clear that he will remain a loyal supporter and activist.

I have had the pleasure of meeting many of our members but for those I have not, let me give you a brief introduction; I began working for UKIP in the lead up to the 2014 European elections, answering the relentless telephone calls from supporters and detractors alike and administering donations and new members onto the party database. There were approximately 30 people working from Lexdrum House at that time and the atmosphere was truly electric.
 
Some of you may remember the late Ralph Gay. A founder member and an extraordinarily hilarious and grumpy character who acted in the capacity of Branch Administrator. After his untimely passing, I took over as Branch Administrator for a brief period whilst also setting up the UKIP vetting process. Thankfully, Ruth Purdie was able to take on the branches while I focused on vetting and candidates which is most likely how those of you who do recognise my name have come to know me. I must emphasise that having worked with the team at Lexdrum house, they really are an invaluable asset to our party.
 
It is an honour to have been appointed by Gerard as your new Chairman and having worked closely with 3 former Chairmen now, I have a pretty good idea of what I’ve let myself in for. I can assure you that I will work hard to support the entire 23000+ strong UKIP team and we certainly have an awful lot to be working towards. For me, the thing that I believe should be at the top of everyone’s priority list is Brexit! The nation WILL be shafted in one way or another and the path is clear for us to save it but we have to do this NOW.  UKIP has the only Brexit plan that is truly for the people! CLICK HERE to read it (if you haven’t already) and please share with everyone you know. I’d like us to get some Brexit Plan leaflets ready in the next couple of weeks to distribute to regions and branches but they aren’t cheap. We need to raise around £30,000 for printing costs and delivery to regions. If you would like to donate to this vital cause, please CLICK HERE. If you can’t donate financially but have an hour or two to spare, please get in touch with your branch and ask for information on getting involved with leaflets or canvassing. If you’re not sure who your branch chairman is, contact HQ on 01626 830630 or email membership@ukip.org
 
Local elections are also just around the corner. It would be unrealistic and naive to expect us to have a candidate in each of the 8000 or so seats up for grabs, but we should try for at least half. If you are prepared to stand as a candidate, or even a paper candidate, please CLICK HERE to complete the short vetting form and let your branch chairman know that you’re ready. Of course, we still need to be prepared for the next General Election – whenever this may be. If you would like get started with the parliamentary candidate selection process, CLICK HERE but please note that you will need to be registered to myukip.com in order to access this page. We also need a strong campaign team and this is something I plan to get sorted straight away. I cannot stress just how important it is that the British public have an opportunity to vote for UKIP. Every vote against the establishment sends a clear message for Brexit.
 
You may also be wondering – Where do I stand on Tommy Robinson? Well, I’ve taken a rather simplistic view, and while I agree it is an important issue that warrants discussion, right now, we should be united in our fight for one issue – BREXIT! We have all worked too hard to let Brexit be betrayed and we must put all other internal matters to one side until it is achieved. For this reason, I would not be inclined to allow membership of anyone from any proscribed group at this time. Having said that, I entirely believe that our Leader has every right to seek support and advice from whoever he wishes. Gerard is doing an incredible job and has made some excellent decisions which have indisputably saved our party. I say we let him get on with speaking to people from all walks of life, in the interests of policy development and contributing to our party’s strategies going forward. 
 
I’ve probably said more than enough now but I look forward to working with you all and I will try to keep you updated regularly and honestly.

Kind regards,

Kirstan Herriot
Party Chairman

Regards,
Greg_L-W.

Hi,

This is the response by Gerard Batten, leader of UKIP, to the proposed articles for a constitution for UKIP Wales (CLICK HERE):

“The Welsh ‘Grassroots Movement’ has no authority to propose or devise a UKIP Constitution for Wales. 

The Party Chairman and I sanctioned a Welsh Committee on the basis that it would concern itself purely with helping in practical matters such as the organisation of branches, the identification of council election and Westminster parliamentary candidates and the raising of funds. It has no authority to do anything else. 

Next week I will be visiting Wales to meet with the UKIP Assembly Members, including the UKIP political leader in Wales. I will tell them my plans for UKIP going forward and I expect them to tell me their plans for UKIP in Wales in accordance with our Constitution and Manifesto.

My message will be: there is no longer any time or effort to waste on infighting or jockeying for position. Either get behind the Party or get out. 

I expect UKIP Wales to prepare itself for the next election in Wales in whatever form that may come.”

 

Regards,
Greg_L-W.

Hi,

UKIP’s latest flip-flop just left Tommy Robinson with his trousers round his ankles

UKIP’s latest flip-flop just left Tommy Robinson with his trousers round his ankles

On Sunday 9 September, UKIP’s National Executive Committee (NEC) decided to hold a debate on letting far-right ideologue Stephen Yaxley-Lennon, aka Tommy Robinson, join the party.

Yaxley-Lennon said he wanted to join the party. UKIP leader Gerard Batten said he wanted Yaxley-Lennon to join the party. Forty-eight hours later, the NEC stuffed him.

Flip-flop

Party chair Tony McIntyre originally approved the so-called ‘Tommy Robinson motion’ on Sunday 9 September. But just two days later the party decided to block the debate on a technicality.

McIntyre said he axed the motion because only two UKIP members had proposed it, not a full branch. This is apparently in “contravention of the Party Rule Book”.

In a statement to UKIP members, McIntyre wrote:

I have made it a point during my tenure as Chairman of the Party to adhere strictly to the Party Rules, as they are the backbone of the Party.

I believe strongly in freedom of speech and would suggest that this motion is presented to the next Autumn Party Conference via the correct channels.

I take full responsibility for this error in judgement as it is mine and mine alone.

It looks like for now, UKIP’s NEC has thrown Yaxley-Lennon under the bus and dashed his hopes of joining a large political party.

Islamophobic goals

But there are still calls among the party’s ultra-right to get around McIntyre’s most recent ruling. They’ll try to argue that they put forward the proposal for Yaxley-Lennon’s membership as an ‘Emergency Motion’.

Deputy chair of UKIP’s youth wing Reece Coombes is one of those UKIP members. He seconded the proposal put forward by UKIP’s family and children spokesperson Alan Craig. Coombes often writes in defence of Yaxley-Lennon for the party’s blog Kipper Central, where he enjoys referring to himself in the third person.

According to Coombes, the party’s rulebook allows members to submit emergency motions for discussion at the party conference after the regular deadline. And individuals, not just branches, can make such proposals.

The motion’s instigator Alan Craig spoke to Coombes in Kipper Central:

It is puzzling that party chairman Tony McIntyre has cancelled the conference debate on the ‘Tommy Robinson’ motion having only just approved it on Sunday, as nothing procedurally or otherwise has changed.

Reece Coombes and I submitted the motion on 31st August (a) as individuals, and (b) significantly after the deadline for branch motions. It was plain to see on both counts, therefore, that our motion did not qualify as a normal branch motion and we did not submit it as such…

On Sunday he rightly approved the motion. He has today unapproved it. What caused him to change his mind?

Infighting reaches fever-pitch

The answer is UKIP infighting.

After Craig announced he’d submitted the motion to the NEC on September 6, an unnamed UKIP spokesperson quickly called the statement “sensationalist fake news” and said there was no chance of it passing. Then the NEC passed it. And then redacted it.

In fact, several senior UKIP members, including former leader Nigel Farage, have raised concerns over bringing Yaxley-Lennon into the party, with NEC member Ben Walker saying he would have to “consider [his] position”. UKIP’s Bristol branch went so far as to state that it would disband if the party accepted the Islamophobe.

But the main reason for keeping Yaxley-Lennon at arms’ length isn’t about morality. It has more to do with tactics and shoring up the Eurosceptic vote.

Shoring up the Brexit vote

In an LBC segment on September 10, Farage highlighted a recent statement made by former Brexit minister Steve Baker. Apparently, some 80 Tory MPs could vote down Theresa May’s Chequers plan in parliament, with Baker predicting a “catastrophic split” amongst the Conservatives.

Pointing to infighting within Labour, Farage said that instead of focusing on Yaxley-Lennon’s membership, UKIP should be trying to lure dissatisfied Brexit voters back to the party:

On Brexit, the one party that should be benefitting hugely from this, should be UKIP.

It should be picking up Tory voters and Labour voters.

But instead, they are going to have a debate as to whether Tommy Robinson should be allowed to join UKIP.

I think UKIP are missing a bit of a trick here. There are millions of very unhappy Euro-sceptic voters out there in both parties!

Not ‘if’ but ‘when’

The ongoing saga of UKIP’s flip-flop on Yaxley-Lennon is leading to some spectacular self-owns. And for many, it will be a delight to see the allies of the English Defence League founder damage his reputation.

It looks like UKIP has decided – in the short-term – to drop populist Islamophobia and shore up the anti-immigration Brexit vote. This may mean that UKIP ‘moderates’ have put the brakes on the party’s transformation into a National Front for the 21st Century.

But don’t get complacent. While it might make tactical sense for UKIP to focus on Brexit right now, Gerard Batten and his ultra-right allies are still in charge of the party.

And if that remains the case, Yaxley-Lennon’s membership in UKIP is not so much a matter of ‘if’, but a question of ‘when’. And that should worry us all.

Hi,

Bristol UKIP will disband if Tommy Robinson joins party

The Bristol group says his membership will move the party ‘dangerously more far right’

 

The Bristol group claim the party would move “dangerously more far right” if the anti-Islam campaigner joins and could open the door to “extremists”.

Mr Robinson founded the far-right English Defence League (EDL) party in 2009 and has spoken at many anti-Islam events. He has denied holding racist or anti-semitic views.

The 35-year-old – who was released from prison last month after serving time for contempt of court – has indicated he would like to join UKIP, but party rules state former EDL and British National Party members cannot be accepted.

Speaking to the party’s National Executive Committee on Sunday (September, 9), Mr Robinson said the “British working class will be electrified” if he is allowed to join UKIP.

The decision on whether to accept Mr Robinson’s application will be made at the upcoming UKIP conference in Birmingham at the end of the month.

However, the Bristol branch say it is against welcoming the activist in to the party.

“Over the past few years UKIP has stringently sought to remove those whose views were felt to be incongruous with the political aims and objectives of UKIP in terms of Britain’s association with Europe,” a UKIP Bristol spokesperson said.

“While we fully appreciate and respect the strengths of Tommy Robinson in his role as a campaigner, this should in no way be interpreted as an endorsement of his stance on anti-Islamification, which, in respect of UKIP Bristol members is regarded as Mr Robinson weaponising against the majority of Muslims and therefore wholly disproportionate and misleading.

“Further to this our view is that should Mr Robinson be allowed to join UKIP, his membership will be seen as an open door for extremists who were previously members to rejoin, and other supporters of Mr Robinson who share his beliefs to follow.”

While it is thought unlikely that party members will vote to allow Mr Robinson membership at the annual conference, the Bristol branch says it will disband if he is permitted to enter.

However, Mr Robinson appears to have the support from UKIP’s leader, Gerard Batten, who has likened him to Gandhi and Nelson Mandela.

The Bristol branch say Mr Batten’s views have called his leadership in to question.

“We now consider Gerard Batten’s continued leadership of the party as wholly questionable in respect of him supporting Mr Robinson, as much as the strong possibility of the party leaning dangerously more far right than we are comfortable with should Mr Robinson’s membership of the party be endorsed,” the Bristol spokesperson said.

“To further underline Bristol UKIP’s absolute and total position on this matter, should Mr Robinson’s membership of the party be accepted then we will resign from UKIP with immediate effect and the branch will be disbanded.”

Hi,

Ukip must be so proud of their new leader and his ability to drag the party into the extremist racist gutter he has inhabited for so many years:

 

 

BATTEN, Gerard 19 - TWITTER

One should not be too surprised at his extreme views about other people’s superstitions and his vituperative language and behaviour as he is married to a Phillipino, who was most probably brought up under the guidance of Cardinal Sin and extreme catholic superstitions – be minded just how beset the Phillipines have been with terrorism, rivalries and massacres between the superstitions of the two main cults on the islands catholics and muslims!

The hatred that has been bred into much of mankind by the various Bronze Age superstitions they have invented is an omni-present hang on of the barbarism of past cults – some, like Batten, would seem to struggle with their chosen superstition and have much in common with the barbarism of Islamic extremists that they themselves find it impossible to move on and rise above it.

In other sectors of society both hatred of islam & judaism as with the ill educated knuckle draggers that gravitate in ignorance to Socialism & the Labour Party!

There has always been a claque of extremism in British politics be it founded on superstitions jealousies or nationalism – Ukip nowaqdays merely fills in the cracks in the gutter along with the rump politics of Mosley, Nazi, SNP, New Britain, BNP and the like.

UKIP Endorses Tommy Robinson

The remaining membership of that motley convocation of saloon bar propper-uppers otherwise known as UKIP has recently agreed that their interim leader Gerard Batten would hold the post permanently. Batten has now declared that the Kippers are no longer in financial trouble, although exactly how this has been achieved is not told. But what is clear is that the party needs new members, and needs them quickly.
 
I em not a racialist, but, und zis is a big but …


At next month’s local elections, UKIP will not stand candidates in many contests. The party is expected to be all but wiped out after results have been declared, not helped by a series of defections and resignations along the way. Worse, the far-right has been making inroads into UKIP support. So Adolf von Batten has decided to cosy up to them, although perhaps he should read the party’s rules first.

These state “Membership is not available to anyone who is or has previously been a member of the British National Party, the National Front, the UK First party, the English Defence League, the British Freedom Party, British People’s Party and the Britain First Party (or any other parties or organisations later added to the proscribed list). Any applications made from people who are or have been members of these organisations will be refused, and any subscriptions collected will be refunded. By making an application for membership, the applicant certifies that he is not and has never been a member of either of these parties”. So what has Batten’s response been?
 
Simples. He has decided to cosy up to Stephen Yaxley Lennon, who styles himself Tommy Robinson. Lennon brings a considerable following to the table, but he also has significant baggage: founder of the EDL, a criminal record which includes convictions for violence and fraud, and an ability to be highly economical with the actualité.
 
None of this appears to have fazed Batten, who has given Lennon his endorsement by sitting down for an interview, the culmination of his own long march towards intolerance, typified by assertions such as “A substantial ‘majority’ know multiculturalism has failed. A multi-racial society works where all share a common loyalty to their nation and its institutions, political & legal etc. But multiculturalism means competing groups with different agendas”. Loyalty. Isolating the disloyal. But not Jews. Yet.
 
Who might be “disloyal”? Ah, but he has an answer to that, too: “‘Grooming gangs’ is a euphemism for sex slavery, practiced on ‘Kaffir’ girls who are considered less than human & fair game. Justified by the perpetrators because the teachings of the sex predator & sadist who invented their religion”. Inflammatory hate speech, as well.
 
Who does he follow in such matters? “This talk by Mark Steyn is absolutely brilliant as a critique of modern Britain. It’s nearly half an hour but well worth listening to”. Steyn is another bigot, who claims that everyone in Europe will soon be living in a continent he calls “Eurabia”. Steyn, who likes to talk about “breeding”, falls back on the same excuse as Lennon: “My book isn’t about what I want to happen but what I think will happen”.
Only telling it like it is. Not racist, because Islam is a religion, innit? It’s only “the truth”. Some of their best friends are brown and black. And Jewish.
UKIP is now heading inexorably to the irrelevance of the far-right fringe. Good thing too.

Hi,

UKIP Welcomes The Far Right

Following his appointment to acting leadership of the motley convocation of saloon bar propper-uppers at UKIP, new Oberscheissenführer Adolf von Batten has inspected the party’s coffers, and found that, after all the Dark Money and diverted EU expenses had been cut off, the cupboard was bare. And with a six-figure legal bill following the involvement in MEP Jane Collins’ libel loss, desperate measures were in order.
 
I em not a racialist but, und zis is a big but …


So von Batten, an unrepentant Islamophobe who regards Islam as a “death cult” – a remark that got him suspended from Twitter – has decided to reach out to like minded people and effectively turn the Kippers into a sort of BNP Mark 2.

 
We can figure that out from Kipper Central’s announcement: “Thousands of veterans are set to join the tide of those who have already signed up to the party under Gerard Batten’s leadership following a unanimous vote at Monday’s meeting to officially support the Veterans Against Terrorism Group … The motion, which was proposed by Gerard Batten at a UKIP NEC meeting where the Veterans Against Terrorism leaders were present was passed unanimously”. Veterans Against Terrorism is another far-right group.
 
That was clear from the accompanying photo which shows the logo of the Football Lads’ Alliance, “lads” being code for current and former hooligans. That the FLA was also on board was let slip by a VAT spokesman telling “Brexit is being betrayed, UKIP must once again rise to the challenge and fight for the real people, the forgotten people of this great nation. We the working class people, veterans, football lads and all other patriots must mobilize en mass and join UKIP, together we are stronger!” Tomorrow belongs to them.
 
Arron Banks’ propaganda site Westmonster has also toldInterim UKIP Leader Gerard Batten has announced a recruitment drive aimed at securing new members, including from street protest group the Football Lads Alliance – who are hosting Anne Marie-Waters at their next event. The leadership of the FLA have endorsed UKIP, according to Batten”.
 
She might be welcomed back …


And while enthusing “The Football Lads Alliance have held some huge counter-extremism demos”, even the UKIP faithful concede “Though with anti-Islam Anne Marie Waters speaking at the FLA’s next event, there is likely to be some controversy over the move”.

 
… and two of this group might be joining her …


But with the FLA, UKIP should know the score. As Hope not Hate has pointed out, “Another splinter from the FLA is the Anti-Terror Alliance (ATA) … HOPE not hate exposed one of the leaders of ATA to be the convicted terrorist Frank Portinari, the British Commander of the banned terrorist organisation Ulster Defence Association (UDA)”.

… after all, look who’s already there


The direction of UKIP under the less than benign leadership of Adolf von Batten is clear: to fill the coffers, the Kippers will get into bed with any and every far-right group out there. It can only be a matter of time before Britain First and the White Pendragons are welcomed. After all, Bill “Viagra Golliwog” Etheridge, one of Batten’s pals, has already endorsed the latter group, which tried to stage a lynching of London Mayor Sadiq Khan.

UKIP is so desperate, it is now prepared to ditch the veneer of mainstream respectability and become an explicitly racist party. Like it effectively has been for years.
