Hi,

the bottom line is that there was an overwhellming British vote for the UK to Leave_The_EU

I am personally relieved that the British peoples voted for BreXit by such a majority – the majority was akin to the vote to remai9n in the EU all those years ago when the Government so clearly lied to the electorate, well this time despite the Government lies the people chose to Leave-The-EU

In times of National danger when the people seek victory against overwhellming odds perforce we choose strange allies – consider the allies thes United Kingdoms had in World War I & II, so9me were natural allies but some were very alien, some even sided with Britain in liberating Europe, on both occassions for their own ends, consider the deal Britain struck with Russia then and the cost to Britain in the loss of India which was a condition of their allegiance.

That Nikki Sinclaire used much of her own money to mount the petition which delivered the debate in The House of Commons that resulted in the Conservative Government including the promise of a Referendum in their manifesto is conveniently overlooked.

Just as it would seem that the criminal collusion of John Ison with Nigel Farage to try to sabotage the chances of a Referendum and fabricate evidence against Nikki Sinclaire is overlooked!

I find Arron Banks an odious and untrustworth individual with a long list of failures behind him but on this occassion I am glad he was able to access money whether Dark Money, Russian Money or even if it was Columbian Drug Money laundered through Panama matters little to me as we won!

Sometimes unpleasant people do good things!

Arron Banks: ‘Brexit was a war. We won. There’s no turning back now’

Now out of Ukip – the party he bankrolled – Arron Banks is creating a political movement of his own. We met the ‘bad boy of Brexit’ just before article 50 was triggered – and found his ambitions go far beyond leaving Europe

It is five days before article 50 is triggered, and I’m sitting in the sunshine outside a pub in Islington with the man who bankrolled Brexit. If victory lies with anyone this weekend, it maybe lies with Arron Banks.

Though Nigel Farage is the face of Brexit, Arron Banks is the man who made it possible. He bought Brexit. Or at least paid for it. Until 2014 he was an unknown Bristol businessman. Now he’s the biggest political donor in British political history. The most powerful. He put more money into funding the Leave campaign than anyone else – more than £7m. He donated his office space, his computer equipment, his senior staff. He’s the co-founder of Leave.EU, the so-called “provisional wing” of the Leave campaign, spearheaded by his close confidante Nigel Farage, and he’s now contemplating his next move: taking an axe to the rest of the parliamentary system.

He only began pouring his money into politics in earnest in 2014 with a splashy donation to Ukip but he’s now out of the party and in the throes of creating a new “movement”. In his sights: the seats of more than 100 Remain MPs. Although, he’s not partisan – he’s aiming to dislodge all “bad MPs”. (“Bad MPs” being, as far as I can make out, anyone from Oxford PPE-ists to people he’s had a spat with on Twitter.) He tells me he’s working with Steve Hilton, David Cameron’s former head of strategy, to come up with “a points system that grades them on their awfulness”, and from that he’ll formulate “a target list of the most hated people”.

It will be that defining phenomenon of our age: a grassroots movement funded and built by a multimillionaire. And, potentially, the next political earthquake. Taking us out of Europe was only step one of the big disruption, it turns out. Next up: the party political system, and the destruction of the traditional boundaries between left and right.

And if that sounds like a stretch, well, we’ve been here before. Banks has the money, the drive and, as we’ve latterly come to realise, the connections. He and his business partner, Andy Wigmore, together with Nigel Farage and Raheem Kassam, the editor of Breitbart London, are the self-styled “bad boys of Brexit”. They’re key partners in a transatlantic alliance, the depth and extent of which is only now, slowly, coming into the light. An alliance that has been cultivated for years by Steve Bannon, Donald Trump’s chief strategist.

The sun is shining. Douglas Carswell, Ukip’s only MP and Banks’s mortal enemy, had just resigned from the party. Banks intends to stand against him – and beat him; he plays to win – in the next general election. He has just been on the phone with Farage, who he says is cockahoop. Everything is going exactly to plan.

“The needle on public opinion has shifted so far now. And trying to shift it back is as hard as it was for us to shift it the other way. There’s people protesting, all the rest of it. But the fact is, they’re not going to shift public opinion. It has shifted. It is what it is. It’s permanent.”

It’s hard to argue with this theory of permanent revolution. And part of it – a big part, he enjoys telling me – was playing and beating the media at its own game. “As businessmen, we sat down with a clean sheet of paper and said, ‘How do we beat these people?’ And then we figured out how the mainstream media works – how they operate – and we turned it back on them.

“We worked out how to take their outrage, how to take their pain – in your case – and feed it back into the system. You know we spent £12-14m on the campaign? And we calculated what our column inches and TV coverage was worth. It was over £150m .”

All of which makes me wonder: what exactly is the game he’s playing here, now? A month ago I interviewed Andy Wigmore, Leave.EU’s director of communications, and as a result of what he revealed to me, the Electoral Commission is now investigating whether Leave.EU should have declared the donation of services by a company largely owned by Robert Mercer, the billionaire who bankrolled Trump, and who works closely with Steve Bannon.

Banks’s autobiography, The Bad Boys of Brexit, was written for him in the Jeremy Clarkson style, and the whole aesthetic is Top Gear. A lot of people portray Farage, Banks and Wigmore as the three stooges: Clarkson, James May and “the Hamster” (Richard Hammond), the jolly chumps who more or less accidentally took the country out of Europe. But that’s not my view. They’re smart, and in triangulation with Bannon there has been a huge amount of strategy – and crucially an understanding of technology – behind everything they’ve done. This just feels like the next stage. Ukip was the host body, and now they’re pupating.

“Whatevs,” says Banks when I bring up the Electoral Commission. “I don’t give a monkey’s what the Electoral Commission says.”

To be clear, the Electoral Commission rules aren’t guidelines for the tombola at the village fete. He’s talking about UK electoral law. Electoral law that Damian Tambini, director of the media policy project at the LSE, says isn’t fit for purpose. Tambini met with the regulators and other parties and they’ve joined forces this week to call for a parliamentary commission to urgently review it.

Modern online campaigning has fundamentally changed everything, Tambini tells me. “And the existing framework is utterly weak and helpless.” The cost of building databases, money poured into third-party campaigns, offshore spending – these were either largely or totally unregulated. There is no longer any way, with current legislation, of guaranteeing a free and fair election.

Or as Banks puts it: “We were just cleverer than the regulators and the politicians. Of course we were.”

He didn’t break the law, he says. He “pushed the boundary of everything, right to the edge. It was war.” And later: “You’re looking for a smoking gun but there’s a smoking gun on every table! And no one cares. No one cares!”

Banks is a gambler: both calculated and reckless. It’s his choice to do the interview in the pub. His to get stuck into the wine. He likes the thrill of this, the game. And he likes winning more. His main business is insurance, and calculating the odds then beating them is what he does. Brexit: a £7m gamble that was… what? An investment? And if so, into what?

A brave new Brexit world, obviously, but there’s also this new movement he’s airing for the first time. He has policy ideas that are either radical or nuts, possibly both (selling off all government property to create a sovereign wealth fund to bankroll new housing). He’s suggesting things that are genuinely innovative in the turgid world of UK politics: looking to young people; taxing old, wealthy people.

But there’s some other agenda in play, too. And moments into my first question, about Trump, he has segued. “We had no Russian money into Brexit,” he says. “I’ve had two very nice lunches with the Russian ambassador, where Andy and I got completely pissed. And that’s it. Why wouldn’t you? Why wouldn’t I go and have lunch with him? We’d met diplomats and all sorts of different people. Not a single penny of Russian money has been put into Brexit.”

Which would be a perfectly reasonable answer, if he had been asked if Russia had put money into Brexit. But he hadn’t. He asked and answered his own question. I know about his six-hour lunches at the Russian embassy, not least because he makes a point of writing about one of them in The Bad Boys of Brexit. It’s Trump’s links to Russia, I’m asking about, not his, but he brings it immediately around to himself. Or to be more accurate, he makes an equivalency between them. “Come on!” he says when I ask him what he makes of the accusations against Trump. “I’ve got a Russian wife. I got an early taste of it about six years ago when the Daily Mail put her on the front page and called her a Russian spy.”

He’s referring to an incident in 2010 before anyone knew who he was, when his wife, Katya Banks – formerly Ekaterina Paderina – came up in conjunction with a court case involving a suspected Russian spy. “She was on the front page as a Russian spy! I was killing myself. It was very funny.”

What happened was this: a 64-year-old MP for Portsmouth, Mike Hancock, who was on the Commons defence select committee, instigated a four-year affair with another Ekaterina, the striking 24-year-old Ekaterina Zatuliveter, whom he met in St Petersburg and later made his researcher. MI5 believed she was working for Russian intelligence and applied to the Home Office to deport on the grounds of national security. She appealed and her case was brought before the Special Immigration Appeal Commission.

Some of the evidence was held behind closed doors but the judgment is full and detailed, and utterly compelling reading. She had previously had an affair with a senior Nato official and a Dutch diplomat. And MI5 disclosed that they had warned Hancock that he may be being targeted by foreign agents – he had had a string of Russian and eastern European girlfriends.

The judge, Mr Justice Mitting, heard all the evidence, including excerpts from Zatuliveter’s diary, which she had stated in her original evidence that she didn’t have (she produced it on the first day of the trial, saying she had forgotten about it) and ruled in her favour, concluding that she was an “immature” young woman with an understandable crush on an older man. In summary, he wrote: “We cannot exclude the possibility that we have been gulled – but, if we have been, it has been by a supremely competent and rigorously trained operative.”

Banks’s wife, Katya, comes into the story because, according to follow-up reports in several newspapers, she also had links to Hancock before she met and married Banks. Her first husband – in a marriage of just three months– was a retired merchant seaman, Eric Butler. The Home Office suspected it was a marriage of convenience and tried to deport her, at which point she wrote to her local MP, Hancock, for help. Butler told reporters that he had discovered them looking “very cosy” in the conservatory.

I ask Banks: “Did you know about that bit of history before the story came out?”

“I knew that she had been in, lived in Portsmouth and I knew… yeah, I knew broadly the kind of, you know, thing.”

What do you mean?

“Well, broadly the fact that she had written to her local MP and various other things.”

That her ex-husband had said he’d found her and Hancock together?

“Well, you know, that’s the evil of an ex-husband or wife, isn’t it? They’re hardly on your side. As far as I can see, it’s just a pack of Daily Mail lies.”

Are you saying that she hadn’t met Mike Hancock, then?

“The only thing that’s true in the Daily Mail story is that she fluently speaks six languages and she has the profile that would fit a Russian spy. But that’s about it.”

To date, Arron Banks’s strategy with the press has been this: if he doesn’t like what they say, he instructs his lawyers at Mishcon de Reya and threatens to sue. He threatened to sue Matthew Elliott – the director of the official Vote Leave campaign – for calling Leave.EU racist. He threatened to sue a thinktank, American Bridge, which featured him in an article entitled “The Kremlin’s Trojan Horses”. He threatened to sue the Guardian for publishing his business dealings as described in the Panama Papers. He threatened to sue a newspaper that described him as having business interests in Belize. And he threatened to sue a commentator on CNN for making certain statements about him on air.

“They called me a Russian actor! And I’ve got no feelings one way or another other than having a Russian wife. I felt that was just wrong. They said that Brexit was funded by the Russians. That’s a bit rich.”

It’s not rich to ask the question though, is it?

“If you lied and said Russians funded Brexit, I would be pretty annoyed.”

But what if I say, “Arron, the question is are you a Russian actor?”

“I wouldn’t care in the least. They said I was a Russian actor and that Russian money had funded Brexit, and it was wrong. There has to be a point where you draw the line in the sand.”

“I’m not going to say that,” I tell him. “Because it’s impossible to know what the sources of your wealth are. That’s the whole issue.”

“That’s wrong as well because I made a fortune in the insurance industry. I’m taxed in northern Bristol. My money is made in the UK.”

Some of it is. And the rest? Who knows. That’s my beef, not so much with him but our electoral finance rules. He’s free to donate, even though nobody knows quite where the £7m he put into the Leave campaign came from, or the millions he put into Ukip: his financial arrangements include a complex structure of companies based in secretive low-tax jurisdictions. Even Leave.EU was set up by an offshore company. It’s the offshoot of STM Fidecs, which the Observer reported was incorporated in Gibraltar.

In Britain he has his insurance companies, various security and intelligence companies, a new data company. He’s a director of nearly 40 different companies using slightly different variations of his name. He has installed employees as directors of other companies. And then there’s a whole offshore empire. A bank he co-owns on the Isle of Man. A slew of things in Gibraltar. The “defunct shell companies”, as he describes them, in the British Virgin Islands. And diamond mines in South Africa – he owns a whole supply chain of diamonds, from mines to shops.

How many companies do you actually own? He shrugs. “I’ve no idea.”

This is how offshore can work: a web of deliberate secrecy. A web that is now being brought into politics. Not just directly via the money that Banks is pouring in, but indirectly too. The digital marketing of the Vote Leave campaign was offshored too: funnelled through a tiny company on the west coast of Canada.

In America, the restrictions on political funding were dismantled in a 2010 case, bankrolled by Robert Mercer, which an organisation called Citizens United took to the supreme court, opening up the way to Super Pacs – “political action committees” – which have become unlimited donation vehicles. The sums in Britain are tiny in comparison, but you don’t even need to create a system of Pacs: there’s no way of knowing how much money was poured into the Leave campaign before the “regulated period” (the weeks before the campaign when spending is monitored and capped). Banks is setting up a movement not a party, at least initially. Parties are subject to some political financing rules. Movements aren’t.

Why are your companies based in low-tax jurisdictions with no disclosure requirements, I ask Banks.

“Why should I pay more tax?” he answers.

Because you’re a citizen of this country? And it pays for schools and hospitals. “I’m an internationalist, OK? If I own diamond mines in South Africa, why would I register a company in the UK?”

It’s one thing to be an internationalist if you’re only a private individual. But he’s not. He’s the man who bankrolled Brexit. But what does it matter? He’s already told me the mainstream media is worthless. That the BBC lies. “What you write is completely valueless because it’s sitting under another bunch of papers almost straightaway.”

More precisely, who needs to sue in the age of #fakenews, anyway? Later he gives me a lift to the station, and Andy Wigmore – they call each other Wiggy and Banksy – is on speakerphone. Wigmore has family links to Belize, and he was that country’s trade envoy to the UK until January, when the foreign office stripped him of his diplomatic status because of his political activity. And Banks lost his status too: he was Belize’s special envoy to Wales. It’s all a terrific joke. “But what?” I say. “You’re telling me you have a diplomatic passport?”

“Yes,” he says. “We both do.” Proud British citizens both.

Then Wiggy pipes up: “Did you know Paul Manafort [Trump’s ex-campaign manager] is accused of laundering Russian money through Belize?”

Are Banksy and Wiggy trolling me? Using me – a feature writer on a remoaner newspaper – to get this stuff out into the sunlight? But all hopelessly mixed up together? Banks has chucked it all at me: his diplomatic passports and diamond mines, Russians spies, offshore tax havens, circumvention of electoral law. All those individual facts are true, but together it feels like one big confected mess? #Fakenews? Is that what’s going on here? That’s what it feels like.

There is weirdness threaded through this story in all sorts of ways. Talking to Banks, my grasp on normal feels slippery. It’s like the weirdness of reading a Trump tweet. The weirdness of playing what feels like a high-level game of chess with Banks, but in the British style – with banter and jokes. Banks has a good sense of humour. One of the first things he tells me is how much he enjoys it when Marina Hyde, the Guardian’s peerless columnist, rips the piss out of him. I bait him relentlessly and I can tell he’s enjoying that, too.

But the weirdness still cuts through. There’s the moment when I challenge Banks to a toast in my pidgin Russian. “You really don’t speak Russian, do you?” he says after I accidentally throw in some Czech. “Maybe I’m fluent,” he says, although he refuses to say a single word.

The lifebuoy I find myself grasping hold of is a piece in last Sunday’s New York Times by Masha Gessen, the biographer of Putin, who now lives in the US. One should resist “trafficking in exaggeration and unsubstantiated allegations,” she writes. It’s pointless looking for a conspiracy, she says. The unimaginable has already happened. “The unimaginable, happening out in the open day after day, not only continues to dull our defences but also creates a need to see a conspiracy big enough, a secret terrible enough to explain how this can be happening to our own country.”

And here too. Out in the open is the fact that Arron Banks is pro-Putin. “I tell you what I’m pro,” he tells me. “I’m pro Putin being actually for his country. It’s not possible to run that entire country as a pure democracy. It’s not possible. The whole history of Russia is that there has to be someone strong in control or it breaks up.”

Out in the open is that he’s just said that democracy isn’t necessarily the answer. Out in the open is that Nigel Farage has voted multiple times in alignment with Russian interests in the European parliament. Out in the open is that Banks defends Putin’s invasion of both Crimea and eastern Ukraine. “It’s 85% ethnic Russian,” he says.

You don’t need to look at the inputs. Just look at the outputs. There’s no need to go looking for a conspiracy. What’s right here, in plain sight, is troubling enough. Andrew Foxall, the director of the Russian Studies Centre at the Henry Jackson Society, tells me that is the point he is always making. “Join the dots that are in full view. There’s a tendency right now to see Russian agency in everything, given the heightened awareness. To think Russia must be in play.

“There are commonalities that are there anyway. It just so happens Russia overlaps with the alt-right, as they call it in the US, and the far right in Europe, and Ukip in Britain. Farage has been part of a pan-European, pro-Russian network in the European parliament. And Russia helps to facilitate and amplify those discourses.

“The Russian state uses different tactics in different countries, and sometimes it doesn’t need to do much at all. Farage was one of the first Ukip politicians to embrace RT [Russia’s state broadcaster, formerly Russia Today, which has a channel in the UK] in 2007-2008.”

It was one thing for people to be pro-Russia before 2014, Foxall says, but post Crimea, the MH17 missile that brought down the plane in Ukraine, the war crimes in Aleppo, “the Kremlin’s tactics are clear. And to be a willing participant in that is… profoundly disturbing.”

Out in the open is Russia’s strategy of stoking and encouraging far-right movements in Europe. Ben Nimmo, a defence analyst with the Atlantic Council, points out that the Russian military doctrine published in 2014 lays out the characteristics of modern warfare as the combined use of military and non-military means: “Economic, diplomatic and informational. And the use of protest potential of the local population.” Nimmo studies disinformation and says that the far right and Russia are linked together in a single network.

“So after the Berlin attack, Paul Joseph Watson [a British far-right activist with a huge following on social media] was one of the first who jumped in with a slew of tweets blaming Islam. And that was picking up an RT news report. There’s this huge confluence between Russia and the far right. It’s the opposition to western liberalism that unites them. From the Kremlin’s point of view it’s because they hate democracy and transparency, but it also entails hating gay marriage and wanting to ban the Qur’an and being pro-Christianity and whites.”

Also out in the open, framed by a golden door, is the closeness of the transatlantic alliance. Farage, Wigmore and Banks may sound and behave like Clarkson, May and the Hamster but, ideologically, they’re the shadow players of Trump, Bannon and Mercer.

It was data analytics firm Cambridge Analytica that led me to understanding Robert Mercer’s role in all this; in the great disruption of the political landscape on two continents; his strategic and coordinated attack on the mainstream media and its replacement with an alternative online network. But it’s Steve Bannon who forged these links across the Atlantic.

Bannon was the one who set out in 2012 to find European versions of the tea party movement and he has cultivated a close relationship with Farage and Ukip ever since. With Robert Mercer’s billions, he’s supported them first via Breitbart and latterly during the referendum campaign. He directed Mercer’s Cambridge Analytica to lend its assistance too. On the day article 50 was triggered this week, Nigel Farage raised his pint glass to toast “Well done Bannon,” he said. “Well done, Breitbart. You helped with this hugely.”

Out in the open is this, Banks’s statement to me: “What you’re talking about is the degree to which the Russians actually – let’s say they influenced the Brexit vote. Say I’m pro-Putin. Nigel said he’s not anti-Putin, if that’s the right word. But all we’ve said is that there are elements of what Russians do that we don’t disagree with. We don’t agree with everything they’re doing, like murdering journalists in the street.”

I interrupt him. You’re saying, on the record, that you don’t agree with murdering journalists on the street?

“I’ll only say it once,” he says.

We both laugh. Though possibly only one of us has a slightly high-pitched edge to our voice.

Dismiss, distract, dismay. This, Nimmo tells me, is the classic Russian disinformation strategy. You launder information like you launder money. You pass it through a set of different bodies. You send it from one shell company/mouthpiece to another. You confuse its origins. You chuck in a distraction. You create outrage.

And in this context, I wonder if that’s me. Have I been groomed as the vector? The agent of disinformation. The vessel through which their scrambled, encrypted, confusing message is passing. Maybe this is simply a description of all journalists in all interview situations. It’s just usually some celeb trying to flog their memoir.

What is Banks flogging? Andrew Breitbart, the founder and informing spirit of Breitbart, believed politics is downstream from culture. First change the culture, then the politics will follow. Take the existing culture and subtly distort it. Banks has launched a new politics site, Westmonster, and in his sights is the Westminster elite and the metropolitan elite. He levels this at me. I point out: “You’re the privately educated multimillionaire who’s sitting here drinking white wine in Islington.”

The shame, I think, is that he could have been a leftie. There is a strong streak of social justice that runs through him. Or social something. Chippiness is part of it. But that’s no bad thing. But he’s not a leftie. And in the US, the permanent revolution is well under way. Steve Bannon is masterminding a silent coup: the institutions of government are being systematically dismantled. The relation of citizens to the state is being re-engineered. Trump, the businessman, is redefining them as consumers. Last week the US senate approved the right of telecoms companies to sell their customers’ browsing history – a huge step forward in renegotiating the relationship between individuals and their rights from that of democratic participants to end users. This is government as platform monopoly. Government as modelled on Google and Facebook. And what’s coming is platform democracy, where the company/government retains the right to change the user agreement at any time. And it’s data – the intimate information of you, your personal life, your history, your relationships, your dreams and desires, your thoughts – that’s the source of their power, legitimacy, capital. Harvested, captured, sold, fed into the panopticon: total surveillance, total control, total power.

I’ve started to think that Brexit isn’t our Trump moment. That’s what’s coming next – 2016 will be nothing next to the general election of 2020, our year of reckoning.

Before I meet Banks, I watch him talking on stage at a trade show called “Master Investor”. I learned of it because I had liked Leave.EU’s Facebook page and I’m now in their million-strong database. This isn’t just a million people, to be clear. It’s the entire social networks of a million people. I had received an email inviting me to the event, hosted by Banks’s great friend, Jim Mellon.

Mellon is another businessman who donated to Leave.EU. He made millions in the early 90s in Russia in uranium mining, investing $100,000 in a company that was worth $2.5bn two years later. He doesn’t live in Britain though. The man who introduced Banks to Farage, who brought the Brexit team together, wasn’t actually eligible to vote in the referendum. He lives in Ibiza and the Isle of Man. Article 50 as brought to you by true patriots, foreign donors, multimillionaires, Belizean passport holders and tax exiles.

I ask Banks about the email I got, advertising the event. The insurance offers he’s sending to Leave.EU subscribers. The use of his political database for commercial purposes

“Jim Mellon is my friend,” he says. “Why shouldn’t I? It’s my data.”

Well, no, it’s not. It’s my data. Your data. It’s what’s at the heart of all this. Steve Bannon knows this, and Robert Mercer knows this, and Arron Banks knows this. His day job, one of them – insurance – is all about data. “We know everything about everyone,” he says. “We buy everything.”

The battle for data is where the next general election will be fought. Politics is war, says Steve Bannon. And Banks is already out of the trenches.

Politics is war. Politics is business. Business is politics. There are no walls between them any more. Silos, as they call it in the tech world. There are no silos. It’s all one, now – enmeshed, intertwined, inseparable.

A Closer Look At Ukip’s Abuse of Tax Payer’s Money via Expenses, in the context of EU letters, known criminality and facts …

000a ukip-025 count.png

~~~~~~~~~~#########~~~~~~~~~~
.

Hi,

Farage’s erxpenses relative to use of assistants between 01-Jan-2014 > 31-Dec-2015 were accepted based on the information provided – surprisingly the letter concerned took until 16-Nov-2016 to be delivered!

letter-to-farage-on-expenses-01Subsequently a large tranche of Ukip, their various groups in the EU and puppet groups like that set up by Godfrey Bloom and managed by Ukip employee Aurelie Laloux and laterly by Nigel Farage’s doxy Laure Ferrari have been under investigation.

Perhaps, on the narrow perameters and with the caveat provided in the letter, the period specified is the first/only period cleared sofar!

Time will tell and the EU is grossly inefficient on such matters – consider how long it took between his criminal activity and the Ukip MEP Tom Wise being sentenced to prison, or the allegations and depositions regarding Ukip MEP Tim Aker’s various rapes coming to Court Police, OLAF & The CPS seem to go into sleep mode in collusion with Ukip

The situation is particularly curious when you consider the assistance provided by the police and CPS to try to frame Nikki Sinclaire and minded they spent an estimated £1.5M trying to assist John Ison, in collusion with Nigel Farage to fabricate evidence against Sinclaire, and their failure to prosecute either John Ison or Farage relative to the proven efforts to pervert the course of justice, particularly when Nikki Sinclaire was totally exhonorated of the lies fabricated against her!

So let us wait and hope that eventually justice is done and seen to be done relative to Ukip’s expenses. Do not forget that they have been shown already to be guilty of a number of abuses of expenses and both censured and ordered to repay large amounts of money they had missclaimed and missused – offences akin to that of Derek Clarke & Tom Wise and although Clarke did not go to prison he was in fact ordered to repay more money than Towm Wise had embezzeled!

You will also recall Ukip circulated a letter from the EU when they tried to claim Tom Wise was innocent of the crimes he was sent to prison for two years for!

Time will tell 😉

Well already time is telling:-

Additional material added 10-Feb-2017

After I had posted the article you have just read above I was more than somewhat vindicated in the comments I made as I was sent the following:

OLAF‘s report is due out this week. But former UKIP leader Nigel Farage has been trying to get ahead of the news by claiming to the Daily Express that he has been ‘cleared’ of the allegations:

farage-express-claims

Farage is quoted as saying,

The European Parliament has stated that my employment of local assistants is in order and reasonable.

I would politely ask people to correct and not repeat false allegations that I am under investigation because it is not true.

It would be appreciated if people were made aware and acknowledged that I have been given the all clear.

Well, you have to give him full marks for ‘neck’, at least.

The Express is UKIP’s primary cheerleader among the media, so much so that it’s basically a UKIP daily newsletter, but the credibility of Farage’s claim is given away by the fact that even the pro-UKIP rag has to acknowledge that Brussels ‘furiously denies’ Farage’s claim and says emphatically,

..officials [told] Express.co.uk that Mr Farage had been cleared of nothing

As the parliamentary officials elaborated, Farage’s supposed “all clear” is merely a letter from the accounting department relating to an ‘annual accounts exercise’ – as the relevant EU regulations and the Express’ article show, it’s nothing more than

a simple confirmation that the books of the assistants employed by Mr Farage were kept in accordance to the Parliament’s requirements” and had been presented on time.

Not only that, but the letter is dated 16 Nov 2016 – months before the investigation was due to conclude. Here is a facsimile of the letter itself:

farage-letter

And, of course, accounts departments don’t have the authority to exonerate people from an official, legal, fraud investigation.

Mr Farage must be seriously worried about the findings of the investigation and its impact on his reputation if he’s resorting to this kind of transparent bluff.

Technically I guess it would be unreasonable to claim Nigel Farage lied but I do believe it is not unreasonable to state that Nigel Farage deliberately set out with his bluster to deliberately mislead! I also believe had Farage really believed his statement was true he would have been far more his normal bullying and letigious self, which to me is the giveaway that he knew his claim was in fact a lie!

I believe my point was well made when I first made it and is now endorsed CLICK HERE

Nigel Farage’s VIP Invite To #Trump’s Inauguration Was Rescinded based on our private contacts with individuals close to Trump who not only know they can trust us but who Trump trusts …

Isn’t It Time For Another Ukip Leadership Election With The Truth About Nuttall Now Known?

000a ukip-025 count.png

~~~~~~~~~~#########~~~~~~~~~~
.

Hi,

I am pleased to say that based on inside American information prior to the inauguration I was aware that although Nigel Farage had been given a ticket to the Inauguration by an irresponsible third party associate, based on advice to Trump via a well informed long term contact, who provided the facts and the truth regarding Nigel Farage the invitation was deliberately withdrawn.

I was asked not to publish the facts unless it broke in the media, which it has, and therefore I am happy to confirm the story as largely factually accurate.

I have found this period very frustrating having details to hand but unable to make the story available, despite the self serving drivel from Nigel Farage and his accolytes. It has been even more frustrating as I had known long ago of the route to the ear of Trump and its strength!

Particularly frustrating has been the media’s manipulation of facts to publish the lies from Farage’s camp, merely to use Ukip as a tool to beat Labour with and with which to irritate the Tories by implying Farage had taken a major part in achieving BreXit, when in fact Farage had absolutely nothing to do with the actual manner in which Britain has achieved an unequivocal BreXit – when in fact Nigel Farage had actively campaigned against a Referendum and colluded with the criminal liar John Ison to try to have Nikki Sinclaire inprisoned, which would have ensured she would not have o0btained the 100,000 signature petition which brought about the House of Commons debate that led to David Cameron experiencing his first great defeat in Parliament & subsequently publishing a promise to hold an in/out EU Referendum in the Tory Manifesto.

For good measure, not only did Nikki Sinclaire go on to obtain 250,000 signatures but also she proved John Ison to be a liar, showed in Court that John Ison had criminally colluded with Nigel Farage, had fabricated evidence and had lied in the hope of his own prefferment in return for services to Farage. Nikki Sinclaire was totally exhonourated of all the lies and accusations made against herby, what would seem to have been a partisan Police Force & CPS colluding with Ukip.

It is just such corrupt behaviour on the part of Nigel Farage & Ukip leadership that led to Farage and his cronies standing in the rain on a street corner to watch the inaguration rather than being on the VIP circuit as an invited guest welcome as a valued guest at the many parties – instead Farage and his gullible sponsors were forced to hold a party for themselves at ludicrous cost with virtually no American guests of any political note – hangers on and hotel staff far outnumbering the guests of any consequence!

Photo evidence #FarageNoVIP: VIP invite to #Trump inauguration rescinded

Sincere thanks to Anne Gillion, Andy King and Sam Kriss, who together combined to bring to the attention of the SKWAWKBOX photographic evidence that supports this blog’s exclusive revelation that former UKIP leader Nigel Farage’s VIP ‘golden ticket’ invitation to the Presidential inauguration had been rescinded by Donald Trump shortly before the event.

The telling evidence shows Farage ‘slumming it’ in the street on 20 January, the day of the inauguration, when a VIP guest would have been at receptions or parties before/after the event or else at the inauguration itself:

farage-roughing

Anyone who knows anything about Farage knows there is no way he’d be smoking a cigarette on a messy street corner when he could be hobnobbing it – and getting photographed doing it – among the rich, famous and powerful.

So it really does appear that Mr Farage was cold-shouldered by Trump as soon as his usefulness was over. Considered irrelevant and rejected by one of the world’s worst people – no wonder he kept quiet about it and tried to put on a brave face at his hugely-expensive, whole-hotel-floor party. Which Trump also snubbed.

inaug-party

Let’s hope the BBC catches onto Farage’s irrelevance soon.

It was a matter of public record that Nigel Farage & his cronies had VIP invitations to the Presidential Inauiguration. Tickets that were withdrawn on Donald Trump’s instruction in the light of the facts that were given to him by a very trusted and trustworthy adviser.

Why did #Trump rescind #Farage’s VIP inauguration invite?

It’s a matter of record that Nigel Farage received a VIP ‘golden ticket invitation‘ to Donald Trump’s inauguration. It’s also rumoured that Farage was extremely proud of this and was showing it to anyone who would listen. Certainly he was not camera shy ahead of the ceremony:

What nobody appears to have remarked on so far is that there appear to be no pictures of Farage at the inauguration – nor even any mention of his actually attending. Given that Farage is anything but reticent about grabbing every photo opportunity, this should be surprising enough to attract attention.

Farage did throw a huge post-inauguration party in Trump’s honour, hiring the entire top floor of an expensive hotel a stone’s throw from the White House – and there is no shortage of pictures of him at this event, at which he is said to have praised Trump to the proverbial rafters.

Even diarists of the day who fawned over Farage’s party conspicuously omit any mention of him actually attending the inauguration itself.

The SKWAWKBOX can reveal that, according to extremely well-placed sources, the reason for the dearth of images or accounts of Farage at the inauguration ceremony is a simple one: his invitation was rescinded shortly before the event.

tf divorce.png

But who’ll get the Wagner CD collection?

By whom? Judging by the chummy group selfie with Mississippi governor Phil Bryant in Farage’s tweet above, it wasn’t Bryant’s doing – and it suggests that the withdrawal happened at very short notice, unless Farage was putting on a very brave face the day before the event. Which would leave Trump or his team as the likely source.

Farage may, of course, have attended as part of the main ‘crowd’ (such as it was), but would be very unlikely to spread photos of him mingling with the ordinary people when the media was expecting him in the thick of the formal invitees.

The SKWAWKBOX also understands that Mr Farage was repeatedly heard assuring journalists at the bash that Trump would be appearing, as the media had been trailing in the days before the event.

He did not attend at any point, in spite of the nearness of the venue.

Could the already-reviled US President have decided that Nigel Farage is too toxic even for him?

Diane James Jumps Ship, Quitting Ukip, Having Blown Her Cover, though to be fair she was in that position long ago!

000a ukip-025 count.png

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

Hi,

so Diane James has now qit Ukip giving a totally predictable appologia which has produced howls of rage from Nigel Farage, no doubt as a result of his inevitable loss of  personal income as her Group President.

Funny isn’t it those who no clamour for James to resign her seat and quit as an MEP when no such rants pertained to those who removed themselves, or were removed, from Nigel Farage’s party or his control yet remained as props to his income stream such as Susanne Evans, Steven Woolfe, Godfrey Bloom, Janice Atkinson, Trevor Coleman, and the like – it is only those who leave Farage, or his allie France’s Front National (The Le Pen family party!), who are villified and demands of surrender their seat are made eg. Nikki Sinclaire, Marta Andreasen, Amjad Bashir, David the desk Bannerman and now Diane James!

Nikki Sinclaire was particularly villified as she worked hard, against Nigel Farage’s interestsd, to obtain the BreXit vote as it was she who orchestrated the petition, which Nigel Farage expressly opposed, that gained over 1/4Million signatures which gave rise to the House of Commons debate on Britain’s future relationship witjh the EU and the promise in the Tory manifesto of an IN or OUT EU Referendum which her tireless and well organised efforts ensured would end in a BreXit vote.

Together with the many backbenchers and Labour MPs like Kate Hoey and an army of bloggers led largely by Richard North’s expertise and sound advice ensured a BreXit vote the Leave.EU Nigel Farage campaign was damaging to the cause with its lack of facts, self serving jingo and endless squabbling – not least of which was with the Vote Leave campaigners and their badly led Westminster bubble data mining operation led by the professional parasites Cummings & Elliot who seemed only interested it data mining and follish comments like £350M a week currently spent on EU membership COULD be spent on the NHS – when clearly there would be no short term cash gain when we Leave-The-EU and their sloganising forgot to point out they had awarded themselves £99,000 a year salaries and expenses etc and set up a management company in Hong Kong which fortuitously is beyond the reach of Data Protection laws!

Clearly the BreXit vote owes more to Nikki Sinclaire than any other single individual qand for having the timerity to act in Britain’s interests Nigel Farage colluded with a criminal plant in her offices named John Ison to seek to frame her with false evidence for fraud – a charge that once the Judge in the case officially cautioned John Ison in open court and Nigel Farage was clearly shown to be involved in colluding & plotting with John Ison soon collapsed and Nikki Sinclaire was totally exhonourated from the lies and scheming of John Ison, Nigel Farage and others!

Sadly as yet British Justice is failing us, seemingly due to a corrupt police force and corruption colluding in the CPS, as Ison, Farage and others have not yet been charged and faced prosecution for their criminal efforts to corrupt the course of justice, bearing false witness and conspiring to mislead and corrupt in a manner which so far has cost the British tax payers an estimated £1.1/2 Million.

Nigel Farage accuses Diane James of ‘irrational selfishness’ after she quits Ukip over ‘difficult’ relationships

Nigel Farage with Diane James Nigel Farage with Diane James Credit: DANIEL LEAL-OLIVAS/AFP or licensors

Nigel Farage has accused former Ukip leader Diane James of an act of “irrational selfishness” and called on her to stand down as an MEP after she quit he party.

Ms James, who was elected an MEP for South-East England in 2014 said her relationship with Ukip had become “increasingly difficult” since she gave up the leadership last month just 18 days after being elected. She has announced that she is quitting Ukip and will stand as an independent MEP.

Mr Farage denounced the decision as “yet another act of irrational selfishness” and said she was no longer fit to sit as an MEP. Ukip leadership candidate Suzanne Evans also urged her to quit the European Parliament.

In a statement, Ms James said that European Parliament President Martin Schulz had agreed to her request immediately to take up independent status.

Explaining her decision, she said: “At a high profile public event in Cambridge last week, I was asked why I had not completed the process to become leader of Ukip. I had little option but to give the truthful response that, although nominated leader by popular vote in the membership, I found that I had no support within the executive and thus no ability to carry forward the policies on which I had campaigned.

“My decision to retire from the election process and not complete it was very difficult personally and professionally, given that Ukip has dominated my life and all my efforts for over five years.

“In recent weeks, my relationship with the party has been increasingly difficult and I feel it is now time to move on. I wish the party well for the future under new leadership.”

Ms James, 56, said she would continue to serve constituents “effectively and diligently” as an independent for the remainder of her five-year term.

But Mr Farage, who returned as interim leader following her decision not to take up the post, said: “This is yet another act of irrational selfishness from Diane James.

“This pattern of behaviour says that is she unfit to continue as an MEP. She should do the honourable thing and resign.”

Her departure means that the 24-strong contingent of Ukip MEPs elected in 2014 has been reduced to 20. Amjad Bashir defected to Conservatives in 2015, while Steven Woolfe and Janice Atkinson now sit as independents.

Ms Evans said that all four – including Ms James – should give up their seats, which they secured due to their position on Ukip party lists under a proportional representation system.

“I am very sorry to hear Diane James has decided to leave Ukip,” said Ms Evans. “I am sure she has her own personal reasons and I do not question those.

“However she, like Steven Woolfe, were both elected as MEPs on a Ukip ticket, not as individuals. If they have any honour or integrity, both should now stand down as MEPs and vacate their seats. I reiterate my call for defectors Amjad Bashir and Janice Atkinson to do the same, for the same reasons.”

Ukip MEP Patrick O’Flynn said: “Sorry to lose a colleague but glad of my judgment that neither she nor Mr Woolfe were suitable candidates for leader.”

Ukip is currently undergoing its second leadership contest in a matter of months, with Ms Evans, Paul Nuttall and John Rees-Evans competing for votes of party members, with the successor to Mr Farage due to be announced on November 28.

This was a situation which clearly could have been avoided had Nigel Farage’s party understood and practiced due dilligence and was clearly predictable and in fact inevitable as this article shows CLICK HERE & also HERE and ALSO

However it would seem that Nigel Farage, his Ukip party & Donald Trump do have one thing in common and that is a slip shod approach to due dilligence and integrity not to mention leadership skills, attention span and ethics!

I presume some of the ideas Nigel Farage will give Donald Trump wil include: lie repeatedly until it becomes the truth by repetition in a bone idle media, publish as many hagiographies as you can to establish an entirely false truth and jump on any passing band wagon that will keep your name in the media!

Investigation of Tim Aker for Rape & Other Police Investigations of Ukip! Seemingly indicating possible corrupt collusion between Ukip, the Police & the CPS!

Hi,

I have no compunction in reitterating an earlier post of consequence, with slight ammendments when it has still failed to find an answer from what would seem to be deeply suspect organisations and their  investigations.

My original articles can be found at: CLICK HERE & HERE & ALSO HERE & HERE
There are of course many others of consequence such as CLICK HERE

BUT first let us consider the irresponsible amount of time the Police & CPS take to deal wityh matters of consequence – it is several years since The Times showed beyond doubt, by Daniel Foggo, that Stuart Agnew, a largely irrelevant Ukip MEP, was up to his neck in Fraud – even having been filmed in a classic sting operation by the Times! Not only was he on the fiddle over disclosure of donnors but he also admitted he, together with another of Ukip’s insignificant MEPs David Bannerman who subsequently jumped ship to the Tories to stay on the EU Gravy Train, they were obtaining money under false pretences to fund cronies – sums that ran to 10s of 1,000s of Pounds!

Stuart Agnew implicated both Malcolm Lord Pearson and Nigel Farage in his scams – when will they be prosecuted for their criminal behaviour – it seems that the Police and CPS are all too happy to ‘fit up’ those they wish to and collude with Ukip in what were proved to be a pack of lies about Nikki Sinclaire – was it because she was a woman? was it because she had had surgery to accurately define her gender? was it because she was exposing corruption in the EU? was it because she was different? or was it merely because she was an easy target being somewhat isolated and from a working class background? What ever the excuse the Police, Ukip & the CPS may make they were proven in Court to have been 100% wrong yet to this day they have offered neither appology nor compensation for their corruption or incompetence.

In fact they haven’t even made any move to prosecute John Ison who was censured and cautioned by the Judge in Court nor Nigel Farage with whom he was shown in Court to have colluded in trying to ‘stitch up’ and frame Nicki Sinclaire with false evidence!

There are many other similar instances for instance what seems to have been a pack of lies and uinlawfull collusions against Jasna Badzak.

Could this also be associated with the early retirement of Bernard Hogan Hunt, possibly seeking to avoid exposure in an enquiry?

On a more possitive note of actual action by the police we have the following statement from them relating to tyheir investigations against Tim Aker one of Ukip’s insignificant MEPs, which sums up most of them iff not all of them, who was already being investigateed in relation to sexual assault one of which was rape, an anaql rape of a uyoung female activist.

The police issued the following statement:
Image result for essex policePolice investigation into sexual assault allegation

against Ukip’s Tim Aker continues

Tim Aker
Tim Aker
21.09.16
By YourThurrock

AN investigation into a complaint of a sexual assault made against Ukip councillor and MEP, Tim Aker continues.

In May, Tim Aker, 30, was voluntarily interviewed by officers over a woman’s claim he sexually assaulted her at Ukip event in Essex.

In an unrelated inquiry, Essex police also confirmed that they are continuing to investigate allegations of a “malicious communications” campaign targeting Aker, which has been circulated to dozens of politicians and members of the public.

A spokeswoman for Essex police said: “Enquiries ongoing in relation to the allegation of sexual assault and allegation of malicious communications.

YT did ask Essex Police if there had been further allegations of sexual assault but they did not give a specific reply to that specific question.

The earlier posting I made was:

Hi,
it is astonishing how lax the media are when it comes to sexual assault of women by those in some form of elected authority.
Yet in otherr instances they are all over the alleged miscreant like a cheap suit!
You may well have noted that when the notoriously dishonest and corrupt thief Annabelle Fuller having been caught leaving an MP’s flat having stolen his Blackberry phone, some cofidential letters and his House of Commons pass, and having admitted to her criminality after a day drinking and having, according to an MEP who was present in the pub, targeted the MP specifically she made false accusations that the MP had tried to ‘fondle’ her – this story by Annabelle Fuller, who has now changed her name to avoid identification with her past, was plastered all over the national media.
The publicity given of the true victim in that case, who was Andrew Bridgen, contributed to his being divorced and estranged from his own children – yet in the case of the Ukip MEP Tim Aker – also a fairly obscure politician the matter seems to have been hushed up or at best ignored by the media!
Why was Andrew Bridgen pilloried by the media based on a false allegation made by an untrustworthy thief yet when one of the young Ukip volunteers reports an actual rape and an anal rape at that near silence!
It makes one wonder what other crimes are being hushed up in the light of the various allegations being talked of, regarding Tim Aker, and was his so called foundation a charity with more similarity to those of Jimmy Saville than any legitimate charity!

Police search home of Ukip MEP Tim Aker after sex assault claim

The home of Ukip MEP Tim Aker has been searched by police investigating allegations of sexual assault, the Standard can reveal.

Officers searched the house in Grays, Essex, with Mr Aker’s consent, after a former Ukip activist contacted police alleging that the East of England MEP had attacked her.

Mr Aker, 30, who has been an MEP since 2014 and was previously head of Ukip’s policy unit, voluntarily attended a police interview over the claim. The alleged attack is said to have taken place last September after a Ukip event attended by party leader Nigel Farage.

The woman first complained to party chairman Steve Crowther in December and it is understood last month she decided to make a police report after being disappointed with the outcome of the Ukip national executive committee’s review of her complaint.

Officers conducted a video interview with her on April 26 and three days later searched Mr Aker’s home in his presence. Essex police are also investigating an allegation of malicious communications after the alleged victim reported that letters about her and Mr Aker had been sent anonymously to politicians and members of the public. Mr Aker is also understood to have complained to police about the letters.

An Essex police spokeswoman said: “Norfolk police were contacted on April 26 with a report of a sexual assault which took place in Essex… Police inquiries are continuing.”

A spokesman for Ukip said Mr Aker denied the sexual assault allegation against him.

“Of course he denies it,” he said.

Perhaps the Police will eventually alleged investigations one day and prosecute these criminals, not just collude4 with Ukip to harrass and prosecute those they wish to fit up like Nikki Sinclaire or for that matter myself!

The Corruption In UKip Is Quite Astonishing When You Start To List It & the attraction of Walter Mitty characters is little help!

Hi,
I posted this Tweet a little while ago shortly after posting about Nigel Farage’s aide George Cottrell’s arrest by the FBI CLICK HERE:

INTERESTING: One of ‘s leadership contenders would SEEM to have invented a Degree & share an iffy CV with an American of same name!

I appreciate it is more than somewhat enigmatic but as yet, as I am hopefull that the media will run with it I have undertaken not to publish the full facts I have discovered – or the details of a senior UKip MEP who claims to have been a University lecturer yet I can only find a record of one GCSE in Social Sciences attributted to him & can find no record of a lecturer of his name  at any Uni.!

UKip seems to be a magnet for Walter Mitty charlatans – such as those who claim to have been Barristers yet do not appear on the public lists & those who gave up glowing City careers to join UKip – even those who purchase ‘Freeman of The City of London’ certificates – another classic you may remember this web site exposed was the total tosh that David Bannerman tried to pass off as his CV when he duped Roger Knapman.

Then again you will remember our exposing of the criminal Tom Wise & Lindsey Jenkins who were both charged with fraud, a fraud he eventually went to prison for and of course the exposing of the fact that Roger Knapman’s family were involved in People Traffiking and the notorious scandal of his attic full of Poles.

Of course there was the exposure of the lies regarding the £11K Nigel Farage claimed to have given to The Metric Martyrs but did not & was ordered to repay to The EU!

Not to mention the publicity we gave to the fact that Nigel Farage was boasting how he had been overpaid expenses by around £2Million at a Press Association lunch some 7 or 8 years ago, and of course you will remember we exposed the fact that his Constituency Office was funded by Julia Longhurst a UKip donnor.

Also of course it was this web site that exposed the fact that Nigel Farage had set up a bank account in the tax haven of The Isle of Man & paid £1/4Million into it to avoid British tax.

This blog also exposed the fact that less than 10% of the money collected in for UKip via Ashford call center was ever paid into UKip. You may remember Nigel Farage described as ‘UKip’s most successfull money raising scheme ever’ (perhaps he should have said ‘scam’.

It was also this web site that exposed the corruption and lies of Douglas Denny and his efforts with Nigel Farage to rig UKip elections.

Also we published the report by UKip’s returning Officer Piers Merchant & his report on UKip corruption CLICK HERE

We also published John Petley’s detailed eviceration of UKip CLICK HERE

We also published the resignation letters of Marcus Stead, Niall warry, Richard Suchorzewski and many others which gave grteat insight into the lies, bullying, duplicity & corruption that is UKip, for more details CLICK HERE

You may also remember the fact that having lost a Court case atempting to close my web sites and the publication of facts about UKip and its people, UKip failed to honour their debt to me of £13,500 + interest CLICK HERE & HERE but I guess it is rather fancifull to speak og UKip and honour in the same sentence!

You will also remember it was this web site that exposed the fraud of Derek Clarke an expenses fiddle that was corruptly never prosecuted but led to his having to pay 10s of £1,000 back to the EU.

You may also remember the publicity this web site gave to the electoral fraud of Malcolm Pearson who admitted laundering monetary donations to UKip through his organisation Global Britain! We also published the criminal scam UKip’s MEP Stuart Agnew was involved in as exposed by the Times.

Also we publicised the scam David Bannerman & Stuart Agnew were involved in frtaudulently obtaining money from the EU to pay Peter Reeve for his UKip political activities!

It was also this web site that published the strange details regarding Diane James some years ago in 2013  CLICK HERE

Then of course you wi9ll remember we published the details of the lies Nigel Farage’s doxy Annabelle Fuller told about Andrew Bridgen MP when she claimed he had sexually assaultedf her when she stole material from his flat including his Government Blackberry, which she downloaded & boasted of, and his House of Commons Security Pass.

We also exposed and published the fact that Annabelle Fuller had published UKip confidential material on the web, when in a position of trust, to harm a UKip candidate in an election.

It was this site that exposed the corruption and lies of John Ison, long before he was exposed in Court as with John Ison’s collusion in criminality with and on behalf of Nigel Farage, which has now also been addressed in Court with tape recordings of their conversations having been played!

You will also remember the exposure of the scurrilous behaviour of UKip when Nigel Farage, Mark Croucher and David Lott ran that scam petition, some years ago, as a money spinner, seemingly for themselves. We also exposed the grave doubts of the claims of Gerard Batten regarding Jasna Badzak and the apparent collusion between corrupt police officers, the Met and UKip.

You may also remember when I exposed the dishonesty of Gerard Batten when he was bragging he would destroy me and shut down my web sites but his lies to the police collapsed on investigation of the simplest nature!

Then there was the sad sick incident surrounding Gawain Towler’s wife’s allegations of his sexual behaviour with his daughter and his braggadocio when in his cups regarding his homosexuality and his libertine approach to sexuality and loyalty and his disregard for his partners sexual wellbeing! The firs item being that which had him deselected and dumped by the UKip SW Regional Committee as a candidate!

Sadly he left his wife who then died of cancer and his children are, I understand, being raised by Grandparents – One wonders will he seek to interfere in the upbringing of the next two children he had now that he has seemingly left his second wife, the Australian Doctor and has now, I understand, recently become engaged to some unfortunate and clearly gullible young woman in her mid 30s! His libertine and louche behaviour bodes ill for this new relationship also I feel.

We also have shown conclusively that Nigel Farage & UKip did much to try to sabotage the Referendum and had no part in ensuring an EU In/Out Referendum was granted – just as we showed Nigel Farage & UKip took absolutely no action to try to prevent the new EU Constitution which eventually morphed into the Lisbon Treaty.

So minded of these facts, and so much more I have publicised, you may well find it expedient to pay assiduous attention to this site and some of my others to keep up with the lies, corruption, dishonesty, fraud and character of UKip and its senior members.

Numbers following my sites has never been a concern, it is the calliber of those who follow, many of whom are media, and the fact that it provides an archive of facts, details, articles and contemporary views and opinions that counts, I believe.

When able I will add the details pertaining to the somewhat strange claims of the leadership candidate exposed at the start of this posting!

Nigel Farage With His Aid George Cottrell When He Was Arrested In Chicago on 21 criminal charges by the FBI!

000a ukip-025 count.png

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

Hi,
when reading this article there will be those who are sufficiently well informed of the antics of UKips leader (owner) in the past. Those who will be aware tjhat Nigel Farage was far from trustworth in the distant past when his Father, Guy Farage, a stock broker (professional gambler) and all too often hopeless drunk, sponsored his son and when Nigel Farage was fired by the French bank for whom he worked for unreliaqble behaviour and habitually returning late and the worse for drink after self indulgent lunches.
Nigel and his brother also worked for a period for American owned Refco in London, that period was curtly curtailed when the directors of Refco were prosecuted for sharp practice and went to prison.
I am unaware as to whether Nigel Farage has as yet settled his large debts accrued whilst working in the City! Though we did note that he set out to avoid British tax by opening a bank account in the Isle of Mann tax haven in the name ‘Farage Educational Trust’ and on one occasion deposited £1/4 Million into the account! Though he suibsequently lied to the media about the account!
‘Strange’ how Nigel Farage is so frequently alongside and deeply involved with criminals yet always manages to avoid arrest! Even on such matters as the debt incurred on his behalf of some £13,500 owed to me when Mark Croucher lost the Court case he brought CLICK HERE & HERE to try to bankrupt me and shut down the steady flow of facts about UKip and the low lifes and scoundrels in their ranks, which I publish on the internet.
Nigel Farage has not even been charged for his vicarious involvement in criminal breeches of the Computer Act and burglary as admitted by John Ison in open Court etc. etc. etc.
When one’s bag carrier is a criminal and your due dilligence has been incompetent you may well find your bags are at risk – one wonders just how embroilled Farage himself is in Cottrell’s criminality and what indiscresions Cottrell may have placed on the record on Farage’s, now confiscated, computer!
It is interesting to note that having flown to America to attend the Republican Congress Nigel Farage failed to meet with Donald Trump which must be rather demeaning for him when you consider the meetings Nikki Sinclaire has had with both Hillary & Bill Clinton when on similar visits. Though to be fair Nikki Sinclaire does have both the experience and the skills to have been an asset and worked on various US election campaigns!
Here again is Nigel Farage alongside a member of his own staff when they were arrested:

Farage aide held in US over money laundering claims: Son of glamour model who once dated Prince Charles facing years in jail after ‘offering his services on the dark web’  

  • George Cottrell was arrested and led away at Chicago’s O’Hare airport 
  • Cottrell was getting off a flight with former UKIP leader Nigel Farage
  • In custody awaiting trial on 21 charges including attempted extortion

One of Nigel Farage’s closest aides faces years in a US jail after allegedly being caught in an FBI sting.

George Cottrell was arrested and led away in handcuffs as he and the former Ukip leader got off a flight in Chicago.

Cottrell, who runs Mr Farage’s private office, is in custody awaiting trial on 21 charges including attempted extortion, money laundering and fraud. 

Facing jail: George Cottrell was arrested by the FBI after allegedly offering to launder drugs money 

Facing jail: George Cottrell was arrested by the FBI after allegedly offering to launder drugs money 

The 22-year-old, whose former glamour model mother once dated Prince Charles, is accused of offering to launder money for drug traffickers after advertising his services on the ‘dark web’ – websites that offer privacy because they cannot be traced and need special software to access, some of which are frequented by paedophiles, criminals, hackers and terrorists.

But the ‘drug traffickers’ he is alleged to have dealt with were undercover FBI agents.

Cottrell, grandson of late Yorkshire landowner Lord Manton, was arrested last month as he and Mr Farage were returning from a series of engagements at the Republican Convention in Cleveland, Ohio.

A trusted member of Mr Farage’s inner circle, Cottrell had just agreed to take on a permanent role organising the Ukip MEP’s diary and dealing with media inquiries.

His email accounts, which include details of many of Mr Farage’s day-to-day arrangements, have been frozen.

Court documents filed in the US allege that Cottrell was offering money laundering services on the dark web using the alias ‘Bill’.

When contacted in 2014 by FBI agents pretending to be drug traffickers, he promised to launder their cash for a fee in ‘complete anonymity and security’ through his offshore accounts, the documents claim.

Following a meeting with the undercover agents in Las Vegas, Cottrell arranged for them to send him £15,500, which he planned to pocket, the indictment alleges. 

He is alleged to have then attempted to blackmail the ‘drug traffickers’ by demanding £62,000 in the form of bitcoin – a virtual online payment system – saying he would alert the authorities if they refused.

Cottrell was believed by associates to be worth £250million through a family trust fund and had been working for Mr Farage for free.

A trusted member of Nigel Farage’s inner circle, Cottrell had just agreed to take on a permanent role organising the Ukip MEP’s diary and dealing with media inquiries.

A trusted member of Nigel Farage’s inner circle, Cottrell had just agreed to take on a permanent role organising the Ukip MEP’s diary and dealing with media inquiries.

But the court documents claim he had a ‘serious, years-long gambling problem, which inherently suggests a strong possibility of irrational risk taking’.

The US District Court in Illinois remanded Cottrell in custody while criminal proceedings continue, ruling that he posed a ‘serious flight risk’. 

The detention order filed in the court said that Cottrell had recently changed his name, which he claimed was to distance himself from previous involvement in political activities in the UK, an explanation the court did not find ‘credible’.

Cottrell also claimed he lived with his parents near Evesham, Worcestershire, despite being listed as living at a £2.5million flat in Kensington, West London.

His mother, Fiona Cottrell, was the Penthouse ‘pet of the month’ in October 1973, under the pseudonym Frances Cannon, describing herself as ‘daughter of a landowner’. 

The images were reprinted in the magazine in 1977 after she was linked romantically to Prince Charles.

Cottrell’s uncle is Lord Hesketh, a colourful hereditary peer who set up a Formula One team in the 1970s and was a Tory minister under Baroness Thatcher.

A former Conservative Party treasurer, he defected to Ukip in 2011. Cottrell was expelled from the exclusive Malvern College before sitting his A-levels.

He did not complete his education, deciding to go straight into what he has described as ‘private banking’.

His arrest came three weeks after the Brexit victory in the EU referendum, as he accompanied Mr Farage to talk to US media about Brexit.

They flew from London Heathrow to Chicago’s O’Hare airport, from where they had a connecting flight to Cleveland.

As they arrived in the US, Cottrell was briefly detained by customs officers in Chicago in what appeared to be a routine check before being allowed to continue his journey.

He and Mr Farage spent three days at the Republican Convention, where they had a packed schedule of television appearances and meetings with US senators as well as discussions with aides to presidential candidate Donald Trump.

It now appears that Cottrell was being watched by FBI officers throughout the trip.

To Mr Farage’s shock, five FBI officers were waiting to meet Cottrell as they disembarked from their return flight from Cleveland to Chicago O’Hare on July 22, en route to Heathrow. 

The distressed former Ukip leader – who knew nothing of his aide’s alleged illegal activities – was given no information about Cottrell’s arrest, and was forced to return to London without him.

The FBI has frozen all Cottrell’s email accounts, leaving Mr Farage without access to his electronic diary. Four days after he was seized, Cottrell appeared briefly in court in Chicago.

An FBI spokesman in Ohio confirmed that George Swinten Cottrell was arrested on July 22 and was due to be extradited to Phoenix, Arizona. 

A Ukip spokesman said: ‘George was an unpaid and enthusiastic volunteer for the party over the period of the referendum.

‘We are unaware of the details of the allegations excepting that they date from a time before he was directly involved in the party.’ 

NAME-DROPPING ARISTO WHOSE RACY MUM CAUGHT THE EYE OF PRINCE CHARLES

By Richard Kay

Editor at Large

Friends of George Cottrell say he has always wanted to make something of his life – and that he was determined any success would be through his own efforts and not because of who he was.

Not that he was beyond a bit of name-dropping when the occasion demanded.

He claimed, for instance, that his godfather was the secretive billionaire currency trader Joe Lewis, owner of Tottenham Hotspur Football Club, and suggested that he was the beneficiary of a £250million family trust fund.

Separating fact from fiction, however, is a different matter. For young George likes to construct an air of mystery around his activities and indeed his background. Unlike most young men of his age he has no social media profile. Nor does he upload pictures of his private life or of his friends.

Penthouse pet: Fiona Cottrell in the 70s

He claims that he was used to handling large sums of money because as a 12-year old his ‘Irish’ racing uncles regularly despatched him to the bookies with bundles of notes as they drank in bars on the racetracks.

But who might these Irish kinsmen be? For Cottrell’s mother Fiona, who once bared all for adult magazine Penthouse and was pursued by a youthful Prince Charles, is the daughter of soap tycoon and Yorkshire landowner Lord Manton.

George’s father Mark is a former bobsleigh competitor who dreamed of representing Britain in the Olympic Games and went to Gordonstoun, where he was a contemporary of Prince Andrew.

One of George’s uncles is the colourful former Tory grandee and one-time treasurer Lord Hesketh, who famously defected to Ukip in 2011.

Alexander Hesketh, who set up a Formula One racing team recruiting James Hunt in the 1970s and who is married to Fiona’s older sister Claire, did, however, once own a racecourse – Towcester in Northamptonshire.

But it was sold along with everything else when he was forced to flog off the family’s nearby baroque stately home, Easton Neston in 2005.

Chain-smoking Cottrell, 22, claims he was expelled from Malvern College, where fees for boarders are £36,000 a year, before taking his A-levels and did not go to university. He told one figure that despite this he went straight into ‘private banking.’

Contacted at the family home near Evesham, Worcestershire, yesterday George’s 62-year-old mother said: ‘I never speak to the newspapers,’ and hung up.

She was not always so reticent. In 1974 she was draped naked, apart from a pink necklace, displaying her 38-23-35 figure across 11 pages of Penthouse.

Using the pseudonym Frances Cannon, Fiona described herself as the ‘daughter of a landowner.’

In the accompanying text the former debutante offered some pert observations. ‘My parents let me grow up believing my body is beautiful and sex in the right circumstances is wonderful.’

That might have been the end of the matter had Fiona not, some three years later, attracted the admiring eye of the Prince of Wales after meeting at a weekend house party when he was on a flying course at RAF Cranwell in Lincolnshire.

Alas his ‘cautious and careful’ approach in attempting to woo her was his downfall. Fiona was not the kind to sit waiting for the phone to ring.

When he finally did, she thought it was a prank and told him she already had a date with Mark Cottrell, whom she went on to marry in 1978.

With his uncle’s political connections, it was perhaps no surprise that the stocky George, who has a sister Laura, 28, should find himself offering his services to then Ukip leader Nigel Farage.

At the time of his arrest last month he had just agreed to take on a permanent role organising Mr Farage’s diary and dealing with media inquiries. He had been working for him for free.

Mr Farage, who likes to take troubled types under his wing, felt that working for the party gave the young man a purpose he otherwise lacked.

‘They had done their due diligence on George before agreeing to hire him and found nothing to worry about,’ assured an insider.

Last night that reassurance was looking rather hollow.

Nikki Sinclaire Prosecution Raises Many Questions But Few Answers Including when will criminals like John Ison & those who corrupted the law and perverted the course of justice be prosecuted.

Hi,
it will be noted by those who followed the case that this is a classic case of ‘Justice delayed being Justice denied’.
One is forced to ask on what grounds did the police persecute Nikki Sinclaire, just how staggeringly incompetent or even arguably corrupt was the police investigation when within a couple of days the Jusge saw through the case and officially cautioned the police witness John Ison as it was clear his evidence was incriminating him!
On what basis did Simon Timothy Orme Specialist Lawyer in the CPS Special Crime Division believe there was a case to answer and justify an expenditure of some £1.5Million on the unsubstantiated allegations of one bitter little man’s claims in breech of his contract of employment and openly made in collusion with Nigel Farage, as both his statement and the recordings showed – a claim amounting to a mere £3,200!

Just what have OLAF, the police and  Simon Timothy Orme Specialist Lawyer in the CPS Special Crime Division done towards the prosecution of David Bannermann & Stuart Agnew, both UKip MEPs for having abused their office and utilised public money to pay the salary of Peter Reeve in direct contravention of the EU rules to the tune of many £thousands, as admitted on video and exposed by Daniel Foggo in The Sunday Times?
Just what have OLAF, the police and  Simon Timothy Orme Specialist Lawyer in the CPS Special Crime Division done towards the prosecution of Stuart Agnew a UKip MEPs and the then UKip member of the House of Lords Malcolm Pearson for having abused their office and admitting to launder donations and offering to launder further donations in direct contravention of British Electoral Law to the tune of £10s of thousands, as admitted on video and exposed by Daniel Foggo in The Sunday Times?
Just what have OLAF, the police and  Simon Timothy Orme Specialist Lawyer in the CPS Special Crime Division done towards the prosecution of Janice Atkinson a UKip MEPs at the time when she was exposed for having abused her office and falsified a claim for expenses having organised a political party meetin during UKip Conference as exposed in the media?
Just what have OLAF, the police and  Simon Timothy Orme Specialist Lawyer in the CPS Special Crime Division done towards the prosecution of John Ison for having deliberately misled the police relative to Nikki Sinclaire, and having colluded in criminality with Nigel Farage to pervert the course of justice, whilst openly admitting to having broken the computer data laws and being in breech of the Data Protection Act as officially cautioned in Court by the Judge and widely reported in the media?
Just what have OLAF, the police and  Simon Timothy Orme Specialist Lawyer in the CPS Special Crime Division done towards the prosecution of Derek Clarke a UKip MEPs and at the time a UKip member for having abused his office and having misappropriated public funds to the tune of £10s of thousands, as admitted by his having repaid between £30 & £100K when caught?
Just what have OLAF, the police and  Simon Timothy Orme Specialist Lawyer in the CPS Special Crime Division done towards the prosecution of Nigel Farage for having colluded with John Ison relative to Nikki Sinclaire, and having colluded in criminality with John Ison to pervert the course of justice, by vicerious participation in breech of The Data Protection Act and Misuse of Computers Act, as reported in open Court and confirmed by tape recorded evidence in Court as widely reported in the media?
One has to wonder when you consider these matters just how corrupt the process is and whether OLAF, the police and  Simon Timothy Orme Specialist Lawyer in the CPS Special Crime Division are acting corruptly in collusion with selected members of UKip – One is forced to draw the conclussion that the case against Nikki Sinclaire was not, as she puts it, just a ‘vanity case’ but a deliberate and mallicious act against her for and on behalf of interests in UKip and/or elsewhere in the body politic.
Similarly minded that the police and  Simon Timothy Orme Specialist Lawyer in the CPS Special Crime Division were involved in the persecution of Jasna Badzak in the most suspect of cases whether anyone could pretend her trial was other than mallicious and thus totally failed to display the tennet that ‘Justice must be seen to be done’ – particularly in the light of the subsequent rulings against Gerard batten!
One could continue with questions such as on what grounds has Annabelle Fuller under her original name or subsequent aliases not been prosecuted for her crimes. How is Jane Collins sheltering behind ‘Parliamentary Privilege’ for her undeniably libelous comments made at the UKip Conference to a large audience libeling various Labour MPs relative to grooming and child abuse.
There are so many cases that one is forced to the conclusion that this is not a matter of coincidents but does seem to be overt corruption!

Former MEP brands failed criminal prosecution a ‘vanity case’

Written by Martin Banks on 28 July 2016 in News

Former UK Independence Party MEP Nikki Sinclaire says that a failed criminal prosecution against her cost €1.78m – over an expenses claim of just €3800.

She has branded the police investigation against her “a vanity case” after being found not guilty of fiddling €3800 in European parliamentary expenses claims and laundering the cash.

Sinclaire, who represented the West Midlands region until 2014, had denied deliberately submitting 10 dishonest claims for travel.

The 47-year-old said that instead some expenses had been “deliberately corrupted” by her former office assistant.

After being cleared, she criticised police handling of the inquiry, saying the 10 incorrect claims upon which the prosecution case rested were now seven years old, dating to October 2009.

Sinclaire said: “In times of police cutbacks I find it incredible that on the say-so of one embittered man, West Midlands police spent, I believe, in the region of €1.78m chasing a vanity case of €3800.”

The former MEP added: “I was arrested more than four years ago, and that event had blighted my political career and, more importantly, my life. 

“I now welcome the opportunity to move forward.”

A West Midlands police spokesperson said: “This long, complex inquiry has been investigated in a diligent and professional manner. It resulted in extensive evidence being presented to the Crown Prosecution Service which they accepted as significant enough to charge Nikki Sinclaire. 

“Our criminal justice system quite rightly demands a very high standard of proof and we acknowledge the verdict from the jury.”

The force defended its handling of a “diligent and professional” investigation, but declined to say how much the inquiry cost.

Birmingham Crown Court had heard there had been an atmosphere of “hostility” between Sinclaire and outgoing Ukip leader, Nigel Farage, and that her former aide had passed information about her to the party.

Jurors spent just three and a half hours in deliberations before clearing Sinclaire of both charges. 

She had always admitted the claims on which the crown’s case rested were in “error”, but told jurors she “paid no attention” to travel expenses as it was her office staff’s job. 

She told the jury: “I was negligent – I am embarrassed about it.” However, she denied any deliberate wrongdoing. 

Sinclaire said the expenses were either mistakes by staff, or in at least one claim were “deliberately corrupted” by her former aide.

Jurors also heard of several examples where she could have made genuine claims, including parliamentary trips to Cyprus and Cuba, and staff costs, which were never submitted, and effectively left her out of pocket. 

Sinclaire alleged that compiling expenses claims was dealt with by her Birmingham office staff, while she just copied information supplied by her assistants on to the forms before signing them off. 

The jury had also heard about a background of Ukip infighting and how Sinclaire lost the party whip as a result of internal disagreements in January 2010. 

She said that her subsequent arrest by West Midlands police blocked her from re-joining Ukip. She then failed to get re-elected in 2014.

Hi,
this statement of opinion has been added to the article:
Nikki Sinclaire COURT CASE Exposes Nigel Farage’s Involvement
For the context of my comment: CLICK HERE

A statement of opinion written and added by myself G.L-W. Sat-09-Jul-2016:

There may well have been a statement from the defence that:

There is no suggestion of any wrong-doing by Mr Farage or any other party official.

However it is clear that at very least John Ison would seem to be in breech of his employment contract and in breech of ‘The Computer Misuse Act’ and Nigel Farage is very clearly colluding with John Ison in criminal activity – thus it would seem clear that Nigel Farage and John Ison are involved together in criminal behaviour!
It also seems very clear that Nigel Farage, John Ison and possibly others conspired together on numerous occassions in criminal activity, including unlawfull entry, and breech of ‘The Data Protection Act’ involving confidential Government information and confidential data, and in breech of ‘The Computer Misuse Act’.
As this information has been in the hands of the Police and the CPS for some years it is hard to understand on what grounds they have persecuted Nikki Sinclaire over so many years when all they seem to have by way of evidence is some 10 receipts that seem to be administrative errors yet they had very clear evidence & proof of criminality, it would seem, involving and undenied by Nigel Farage and John Ison.
It would seem that this entire farago has been to frame Nikki Sinclaire with the collusion of the Police and CPS unless one can readily accept that both the Police and CPS are both incredibly gullible and very stupid!
Nikki Sinclaire has clearly misplaced her trust in John Ison and has been betrayed by him in a criminal manner; Nigel Farage’s mallicious behaviour is seemingly equally as criminal in that he colluded in criminality of a period of time with John Ison. Steve Morson was also clearly informed of the criminal behaviour but in obvious mittigation supplied what seem to be true and honest evidence of the criminality to the Police making it irrefutable that John Ison and Nigel Farage had acted and colluded in criminality together.

NOT GUILTY VERDICT

returned by the jury.

UNANIMOUSLY

Hi,
I am privy to a considerable amount of factual information regarding the trial, which I shall NOT be including until it has been brought to public attention in the Court.
That said I will be commenting, with due consideration of the law, and to assist I have drawn heavily on the reporting of the trial by The Express & Star (CLICK HERE) as of all the reports I have read they seem to have provided the most accurate and competent coverage available in the public domain. As is my style throughout this web site I have included all ‘quoted’ material in blue to differentiate between facts I have provided and my views and the comments of others.
This case pertaining to alleged crimes commited 7 years ago in 2009 and amounting to only £2,465 at most and an investigation and arrest not made until 2012, this after Nikki Sinclaire had spoken with the EU payments office, OLAF & British Police reporting that she was not happy about events in her constituency office, where the now proven duplicitous and dishonest liar John Ison worked, and she was eventually charged in 2014 without ever being questioned regarding the charges!
WHATEVER THE Jury’s decision is this is a travesty and clearly illustrates the utter irresponsibility of the Police, when one considers the facts and the paultry amount involved, even if she was guilty which she strenuously denies and the trial is likely to have to relly on desperation to prove, has cost the British tax payers, in a period of austerity, somewhere between £1,000,000 & £1,500,000 – a huge amount of Police and Judiciary time that should have been better spent.
Further: WHATEVER THE OUTCOME this is a classic example of ‘Justice delayed is Justice denied’, which has already sentenced Nikki Sinclaire to 4 years of punishment since her arrest, including the loss of her job and her carreer in politics, created huge stress for her, her elderly parents and wider family and friends since 2012, and precluded her from any meaningfull employment since she lost office as an MEP, as she was under threat of pending Court action.
How can this not be classified as an abuse of Justice, WHATEVER THE OUTCOME?
Here is some background media coverage:

Ex-MEP Nikki Sinclaire charged with money laundering

14:17, 23 Jul 2014
Updated 18:42, 23 Jul 2014
By Brett GibbonsMs Sinclaire faces allegations that she made false and dishonest submissions for travelling expenses
Nikki Sinclaire
Nikki Sinclaire

Former West Midlands MEP Nikki Sinclaire is set to appear in court accused of making false expenses claims and money laundering following a lengthy police investigation.

Ms Sinclaire is due to appear at Birmingham Magistrates Court on 17 September to face allegations that she made false and dishonest submissions for travelling expenses and transferred the proceeds of fraud through a bank account in her name.

The offences are alleged to have taken place between October 2009 and July 2010 when Ms Sinclaire was a serving Member of the European Parliament.

The 45-year-old, of Velsheda Road, Shirley, was originally arrested on in February 2012 and has since been on police bail. Three other members of the public were also arrested but will face no further action.

Throughout the investigation West Midlands Police has been working jointly with officers from the European Anti-Fraud Office (OLAF).

Simon Orme, lawyer with the Crown Prosecution Service special crime division, said: “The CPS has authorised West Midlands Police to charge Ms Nicole Sinclaire, former MEP for the West Midlands, with the offences of money laundering and misconduct in public office.

“It is alleged that between October 2009 and July 2010, whilst serving as an MEP, Ms Sinclaire used funds paid into her bank account by the European Parliament in respect of false travelling expenses claims.

“Ms Sinclaire has also been charged with Misconduct in a Public Office with regard to her actions.

“The decision to prosecute was taken in accordance with the Code for Crown Prosecutors. We have determined that there is a realistic prospect of conviction and that a prosecution is in the public interest.

“Criminal proceedings have now commenced and Ms Sinclaire has the right to a fair trial. It is extremely important that there should be no reporting, commentary or sharing of information online which could in any way prejudice these proceedings.”

The ex-MEP lost her seat in the May elections for the European parliament.
Update:

Ms Sinclaire has claimed that police have not questioned her during a two-and-a-half year probe into allegations of money laundering and misconduct in public office.

The Crown Prosecution Service confirmed today that the former UKIP politician would be facing charges relating to the claiming of travel expenses while she was serving in the European parliament. She lost her seat during the elections in May.

Sinclaire, pledged to fight the charges.

She said: “‘I am disappointed that the police have chosen to charge me with the above offences without questioning me on them, after a two-and-a-half-year investigation.

“The charges relate to my time as a UKIP MEP when I was under the guidance and oversight by the party in the Parliament. This will prove pivotal in resolving the matter.

“‘During my time as an MEP I put in more than £120,000 of my salary into the cost of my work activities.

“‘It was also me, who in 2010, drew the attention of the West Midlands Police, to irregularities I discovered had taken place, without my knowledge, in my UKIP office.

“‘I strongly refute these charges and will be firmly defending myself. I am certain I shall be found innocent of these ludicrous and unfounded accusations.”

As shown in Court this entire case, which must have cost the public purse (Tax Payers) over £1,000,000 and possibly around £1,599,000 to bring and conducy, is in reality nothing more than allegations more suited to the Small Claims Courts:
Sinclaire’s lawyers have claimed that the amount actually overpaid was about 3,000 euro (£2,465), but deny any wrong-doing on her part.
a sum which has not been challenged by the prosecution and which it does seem Sinclaire and her lawyer have shown was in no way a willfull attempt by Sinclaire to defraud the EU.
Further EU officials (or as described by The E&S: Mandarins) was not considered sufficiently significant for OLAF (The EU official investigators) to investigate as they did not believe the matter to be fraud – in the light of evidence presented in Court which the prosecution has accepted the amount they claim Sinclaire benefitted by is £2,465 which relative to over £90,000 of her own money which she personally paid in to doing her job as an MEP is rather put in perspective!
It has been made clear in Court, and not contested by the prosecution or Ison, that Ison was employed by Sinclaire and that part of his job was to manage her receipts and expenses claims – Further it is known that in his contract of employment it is clearly stated that his employment is dependent on his undertaking to act in Nikki Sinclaire’s best interest and keep confidentiality – Wyhich part of acting as a spy and a mole in her office and plotting to destroy her does this little man of clearly no integrity and questionable honesty consider was her best interests or a confidential action as he fed information to others such as Nigel Farage, Mike Nattrass & Steve Morson, which he has admitted!
Further it is clear from the tape recordings presented in Court that Nigel Farage and John Ison are seeking to damage Sinclaire in a manner which will lead to her removal. John Ison has admitted he was acting as a spy/mole for Nigel Farage, speaking with him once or twice a week, and has also admitted that he had sent a text message, having failed apparently to ‘stitch her up’ by one method that  he needed to move to ‘Plan B – Fraud’:
Mr Ison agreed that he also sent a message to another Ukip party member during a conversation about the MEP, saying: “Ok, Plan B – fraud.”
I and many others can attest to the night of the election count, a night on which I spoke to Nigel Farage several times, when Nigel Farage openly stated that ‘… although he had 13 MEPs elected he wished it was only 12‘ and it was clear that he wished Sinclaire had not been elected.
That Farage had fallen out with one of his MEPs was hardly news as in the previous parliament he lost the support of almost half of those that were elected!
There seems to be clear evidence as led in Court that there is every possibility that the dishonest and corrupt John Ison was falsifying documents with the aim to oust Nikki Sinclaire and that Mike Nattrass and Nigel Farage were colluding with him so to do, though carefully ensuring their own deniability. Steve Morson having been more competently groomed by John Ison would seem to have been aware of these facts and thus involved but his only crime would seem to be as a witness of the facts, all be it a somewhat naive witness.

Nikki Sinclaire money laundering trial: Former West Midlands Ukip MEP ‘claimed thousands in car costs despite flying more cheaply’

A former Ukip MEP wrongly claimed thousands of euros in travel expenses for journeys to the European Parliament by car when she had actually flown more cheaply, a court has heard.

Nikki Sinclaire, who represented the West Midlands region in Brussels and Strasbourg until 2014, signed and submitted “significant” expenses “in excess of the flight costs”, according to the prosecution.

The jury was told that in one case Sinclaire would have needed a car that could “travel back in time”, based on the receipts she is accused of submitting.

Antonie Muller, prosecuting, said Sinclaire submitted 10 false claims through “dishonesty and deception” rather than in error.

Mr Muller said that in another claim, from October 10 2009, Sinclaire claimed she had driven from Solihull to Stoke-on-Trent when she was in Cyprus.

The prosecution produced a Hilton hotel receipt from Nicosia alleged to show Sinclaire buying a Kit-Kat, a drink, and later “some hairdressing” the same day.

Mr Muller said: “She claimed she travelled 127 miles (to Stoke) when you know she hadn’t even been in the country.”

Former MEP Nikki SinclaireFormer MEP Nikki Sinclaire

Documents seized by police allegedly show Sinclaire received a Greek parking ticket for 25 euros while on the island.

He added that investigation of the UK’s automatic number plate recognition cameras found Sinclaire never made the trip to Staffordshire, as she claimed.

Opening the prosecution’s case in what is scheduled to be a three-week trial at Birmingham Crown Court, Mr Muller said: “In short, this is a case about a member of the European Parliament, an elected official, making false and dishonest claims for travel expenses during her office.

“Specifically, during the period in the latter part of 2009 to the summer of 2010.

“The Crown rely on a series of claims for travel expenses made by Miss Sinclaire.

“We contend – and I believe it is not really disputed – these claims are probably false and do not reflect the travel expenses that were actually incurred.

“Neither do they they represent the forms of travel actually taken.

“We allege Miss Sinclaire made false claims broadly of two different varieties.

“On some occasions she would claim for travel which she had not undertaken at all.

“On other occasions she made false claims for travel which enabled her to claim significantly higher sums than if she had correctly stated travel she’d actually undertaken.”

He told the jurors it may “seem odd” that travelling by car could be more financially advantageous than going by plane, but not when including the Brussels parliament’s “travel time” allowances.

The Crown’s barrister said six of the 10 claims saw Sinclaire claim for car and ferry travel when she had flown via Paris Charles de Gaulle Airport, Basel in Switzerland or Brussels.

Mr Muller said EU expenses files showed she had submitted Brussels Airlines boarding passes – with a request for “extra leg room” – for a return flight on October 9 2009, when she was in Cyprus.

On another occasion, she claimed a 1,271-mile round trip from her Solihull home to Strasbourg, by car, he said, but she allegedly flew from London Heathrow to Basel, returning on January 21 2010, where she booked herself into a Hilton Metropole hotel in London.

He said: “The air fares cost £130. The 1,200-odd miles of vehicle travel was worth in excess of 900 euros (£750).”

The Crown said Sinclaire submitted that claim – with a ferry booking made three hours before travel – supported by French toll road tickets and a petrol station receipt from 11.32am on January 18 2010.

Mr Muller said: “The ferry was only supposed to arrive at Dunkirk at 1pm, so unless that car can travel back in time, it is impossible for that to have happened.”

He added that similar allegedly false expense claims were submitted for October 19-23 2009, and then November 23-26.

Mr Muller said Sinclaire then put in a claim “just shy of 400 euros” for a 484-mile round trip from Solihull to Chester-le-Street on January 8 2010.

The court heard the MEP’s colleague had travelled to County Durham by train to collect a £6,000 Mercedes Vito for Sinclaire, while she was having lunch with an NFU official in Stratford-upon-Avon.

The 47-year-old, of Shirley, Solihull, West Midlands, is accused of misconduct in a public office between October 1 2009 and July 31 2010 while a serving member of the European Parliament by making or causing to be made false or dishonest claims for travel expenses.

She is further charged of fraudulently transferring criminal property into her bank account between October 14 2009 and December 31 2010.

At the start of the trial, Judge Stephen Eyre QC told the jury: “This is not a trial about politics, but about particular events in a particular time and about the intention of which certain things were done.

“Whether you agree or disagree with the defendant’s politics is irrelevant to this trial.”

Sinclaire, on bail, denies all the charges and the trial continued.

Nikki Sinclaire fraud trial: Former MEP told bureaucrats expenses claims had been “deliberately corrupted”

A former Ukip MEP told Brussels bureaucrats a member of her staff had “deliberately corrupted” her travel expenses claims, a court has heard.

Former MEP Nikki SinclaireFormer MEP Nikki Sinclaire

Nikki Sinclaire, who represented the West Midlands region in Brussels and Strasbourg until 2014, signed and submitted “significant” expenses “in excess of the flight costs”, according to the prosecution.

On Wednesday, it emerged in court Sinclaire had gone to the European Parliament’s MEPs’ expenses chief to raise concerns about irregularities in her own claims.

Francisco Estela Burriel told Birmingham Crown Court that Sinclaire “told me that she is not sure, but probably the (expenses claims) declaration has been made by another person, a member of her staff”.

Her barrister Sean Hammond asked if he recalled the meeting in Mr Estela Burriel’s office, from late August 2010, over a year before her arrest by West Midlands Police in February 2012.

Addressing the EU mandarin, he said: “The concern she raised was she believed because of a document she had seen in her office in Birmingham, that a member of staff had deliberately corrupted expenses claims submitted to your office.”

The 56-year-old bureaucrat replied: “Yes, absolutely.”

He advised Sinclaire to contact the travel companies involved to trace the paperwork, but she later told him she was “unable to find the flights she flew and which company she took to travel” as she tried to trace and correct the errors.

Earlier, Sinclaire’s barrister had asked whether newly elected MEPs’ staff received any formal training on expenses.

The EU civil servant replied that there had been a three-week information drive at the European Parliament, and that all the information was “made public”.

Sinclaire’s lawyers have claimed that the amount actually overpaid was about 3,000 euro (£2,465), but deny any wrong-doing on her part.

But the Crown has alleged Sinclaire deliberately submitted 10 travel expense claims for road travel, which she actually undertook more cheaply by flying from Birmingham Airport to the heart of EU government.

Antonie Muller, opening the prosecution case on Monday, told jurors it was a quirk of the Brussels expenses system that an elected member could claim for their journey time “duration”, which would be longer for road trips than for a flight.

In six out of the 10 claims, the Crown has alleged that is what Sinclaire did, including one occasion where she claimed to have driven to Stoke-on-Trent when in fact she was in Cyprus.

In his evidence, Mr Estela Burriel revealed some of the inner workings of the MEPs’ expenses bureaucracy, including the fact elected members can claim for up to 800 kilometres (497 miles) of road travel within their home country without submitting receipts.

As he left the court, the Spaniard covered his face with his bag after spotting media photographers outside.

Opening the case on Monday, Mr Muller said: “In short this is a case about a member of the European Parliament thereafter, an elected official making false and dishonest claims for travel expenses during her office.”

Sinclaire, 47, of Shirley, Solihull, West Midlands, is accused of misconduct in a public office between October 1 2009 and July 31 2010 while a serving member of the European Parliament by making or causing to be made false or dishonest claims for travel expenses.

She is further charged between October 14 2009 and December 31 2010 of fraudulently transferring criminal property into her bank account.

At the start of the trial Judge Stephen Eyre QC told the jury: “This is not a trial about politics, but about particular events in a particular time and about the intention of which certain things were done.

“Whether you agree or disagree with the defendant’s politics is irrelevant to this trial.”

Sinclaire, on bail, denies all the charges and the trial continues.

Nikki Sinclaire fraud trial: ‘Spy aide’ passed on info to Nigel Farage, court hears

A former aide to an ex-Ukip MEP has told a court he gave regular updates about his employer to Nigel Farage, saying he did so “to protect the party”.

nikkisFormer UKIP MEP Nikki Sinclaire is on trial for expenses fraud

John Ison was accused of allegedly stealing documents, installing computer spyware and making secret recordings while working for Nikki Sinclaire, to ingratiate himself with the party leadership.

His old boss, Sinclaire, who represented the West Midlands region in Brussels and Strasbourg until 2014, is currently on trial for allegedly submitting “significant” expenses claims she knew to be false, according to the prosecution.

The defence’s case is that prosecution witness Mr Ison first tried to “undermine” Sinclaire, and when that appeared to fail he took advantage of the confusion around the Brussels members’ expenses system to set up his employer.

Mr Ison denied that accusation in court, and also said he never stole documents.

A Birmingham Crown Court jury hearing evidence against Sinclaire on Friday was told by her barrister Sean Hammond there was “a background of hostility” between Mr Farage and the MEP.

In a short phone call to Mr Farage – covertly recorded by Mr Ison in January 2010 – the former aide told the politician it was likely Sinclaire would have the party whip restored.

Mr Farage is heard to reply: “Mad.”

Later, jurors heard how Sinclaire lost the party whip in 2010 over an internal disagreement, but was seeking to rejoin through an appeal to its national executive committee.

Mr Hammond claimed that during the period Sinclaire treated Mr Ison as a “confidante”.

However, in a text conversation about Sinclaire with a local party colleague in February 2010, he accepted replying: “Ok, Plan B – fraud.”

At one stage during proceedings Mr Ison used his right not to incriminate himself, by declining to answer whether he had breached the Computer Misuse Act, after being presented with evidence he hacked Sinclaire’s personal laptop.

Sinclaire’s barrister asked Mr Ison if he had installed spyware on an office computer, before bragging to a party colleague about the information he had gathered as a result.

In a message in January 2010 to Steve Morson, described in court as then chairman of the Ukip regional office, Mr Ison wrote “I have just captured the entire data from Nikki’s laptop”, ending the message with a smiley face.

A reply allegedly sent by Mr Morson read “lmao”, which the court heard was shorthand for “laughing my a**e off”.

Asked by Mr Hammond if he sent the laptop message, Mr Ison replied: “Yes.”

Mr Hammond put it to him: “Had you just done that (to the laptop)?”

Choosing to invoke legal privilege against incriminating himself, Mr Ison replied: “I decline to answer.”

When Mr Ison was asked by Mr Hammond if he was acting as a “spy or a mole”, he replied: “If you want to put it that way.”

Later, a message alleged to have been sent in reply by Mr Morson read: “I’ll see if I can get you an Oscar.”

Mr Ison replied “Nikki (Sinclaire) is going to get me a ‘foxtrot oscar’ when she finds out”, referring to a slang term meaning f*** off.

On the day when Sinclaire was due to make her case to the party’s national executive committee, a message was sent to Mr Ison allegedly from Mr Morson.

The text suggested Ukip, then led by Baron Pearson of Rannoch – known as Lord Pearson – had “backed down under the threat of legal action, which Lord P said we would lose”.

Mr Ison replied in his message: “Ok, Plan B – fraud.”

Asked in court whether he sent that message, he replied: “Yes, I did.”

He added “obviously that comment looks very bad”, but denied any wrong-doing.

Earlier, asked by Mr Hammond how often he spoke to Mr Farage about Sinclaire, Mr Ison replied it was at least “once a week” by January 2010.

The ex-MEP’s barrister then asked: “You would regularly brief him and give him sensitive information from your employer?”

Mr Ison replied: “Yes I would.”

When Mr Hammond then asked if he did so to “undermine” Sinclaire, Mr Ison said: “It was to protect the party, sir.”

There is no suggestion of any wrong-doing by Mr Farage or any other party official.

Sinclaire, 47, of Shirley, Solihull, West Midlands, denies misconduct in a public office between October 1 2009 and July 31 2010 while a serving member of the European Parliament by making or causing to be made false or dishonest claims for travel expenses.

She further denies a charge that between October 14 2009 and December 31 2010 she fraudulently transferred criminal property into her bank account.

The trial continues, with Sinclaire herself expected to give evidence next week.

A statement of opinion written and added by myself G.L-W. Sat-09-Jul-2016:

There may well have been a statement from the defence that:

There is no suggestion of any wrong-doing by Mr Farage or any other party official.

However it is clear that at very least John Ison would seem to be in breech of his employment contract and in breech of ‘The Computer Misuse Act’ and Nigel Farage is very clearly colluding with John Ison in criminal activity – thus it would seem clear that Nigel Farage and John Ison are involved together in criminal behaviour!
It also seems very clear that Nigel Farage, John Ison and possibly others conspired together on numerous occassions in criminal activity, including unlawfull entry, and breech of ‘The Data Protection Act’ involving confidential Government information and confidential data, and in breech of ‘The Computer Misuse Act’.
As this information has been in the hands of the Police and the CPS for some years it is hard to understand on what grounds they have persecuted Nikki Sinclaire over so many years when all they seem to have by way of evidence is some 10 receipts that seem to be administrative errors yet they had very clear evidence & proof of criminality, it would seem, involving and undenied by Nigel Farage and John Ison.
It would seem that this entire farago has been to frame Nikki Sinclaire with the collusion of the Police and CPS unless one can readily accept that both the Police and CPS are both incredibly gullible and very stupid!
Nikki Sinclaire has clearly misplaced her trust in John Ison and has been betrayed by him in a criminal manner; Nigel Farage’s mallicious behaviour is seemingly equally as criminal in that he colluded in criminality of a period of time with John Ison. Steve Morson was also clearly informed of the criminal behaviour but in obvious mittigation supplied what seem to be true and honest evidence of the criminality to the Police making it irrefutable that John Ison and Nigel Farage had acted and colluded in criminality together.

Nikki Sinclaire fraud trial: Former Ukip MEP’s staff ‘knew passwords’

An ex Ukip MEP accused of filing dodgy expenses claims told a court her staff knew her passwords and credit card numbers to make travel bookings.Former MEP Nikki Sinclaire
Former MEP Nikki Sinclaire

Giving evidence for the first time at her Birmingham Crown Court trial on Monday, she said: “Staff had access to the office credit card and also my other credit card – they knew the numbers.”

She added that her “immense workload”, representing five million constituents, meant she probably gave “mundane” queries about her travel arrangements from her own staff short shrift and “did not know” what they did with her receipts once handed over

The 47-year-old said she had “so many objectives to achieve” politically, she expected her expenses to be dealt with by her office.

Sinclaire also told how she had sought “clarification” from the Brussels’ parliamentary expenses officials on how to make claims, after being handed a “foot-and-a-half”-high pile of EU paperwork.

Describing her background, she told the jury she was born in 1968, one of four children to a lorry driver father and a nurse mother, and grew up in south London.

She charted how she knew from the age of four of her issues regarding her gender identity and had gender reassignment surgery in 1995.

In emotional testimony, she described how she saw herself as “the first person ever to be in that situation to be elected”.

She said: “I wanted to show that somebody like me could do that job.”

Recalling her rise within the party, the former MEP added that throughout her time with Ukip from 1997, there was hostility and distrust between her and Nigel Farage.

But she said: “There was also an element of respect – we were two different wings of the same party.”

Asked by her barrister Sean Hammond if she had dishonestly submitted 10 claims, she battled tears as she replied: “No.

“I wanted to be different, I wanted to show it was possible to positively represent people.”

Sinclaire herself went to the EU anti-fraud unit and the police when she claimed to have realised all was not right with her claims.

She claimed her approach to making expenses claims was to empty out a handbag full of receipts and leave them on desk of her office staff to deal with, as it was “not really my skillset”.

Instead, she left the task was down to her UK office administration assistant Paula Murray, or her political aide and later office manager John Ison to sort them.

Sinclaire said: “On a Friday afternoon, I would empty my handbag of all receipts, and put it by John’s (Ison’s) desk.

“After employing Paula, it would be on her desk.”

Sinclaire also claimed that new MEPs were not shown the ropes of the parliamentary expenses system and instead relied on a “fresher’s fair” held in Brussels, and a huge bundle of documentation.

Having to set up her office from scratch, she recruited West Midlands regional party worker and Ukip campaigner Mr Ison to help her with setting up the rules and procedures of her administration.

In August, 2009, seeking clarification about the expenses paperwork, she went with Mr Ison to the parliamentary cash office in Brussels to speak with the bureaucrat in charge.

Mr Hammond asked: “So at that stage in terms of physically pulling together of expenses claims and the paperwork, things like that, who took over the administration work?

Sinclaire replied it was Mr Ison who set up the system and he who supervised its function.

Sinclaire said: “The time I spent in my office, the workload I had, I spent so little time in the Birmingham office.

“There were many pressures because of my position.

“I probably wouldn’t have reacted well to being asked a mundane question about my claims.”

Asked by Mr Hammond how travel bookings were arranged, she said these were dealt with by her staff who had access to her email account, credit cards and passwords.

Sinclaire claimed she was actually attempting to highlight what she alleged was the wastefulness of the EU bureaucracy and expenses system, during her tenure, which ended in 2014 when she failed to get re-elected.

Sinclaire, of Shirley, Solihull, West Midlands, denies misconduct in a public office between October 1 2009 and July 31 2010 while a serving member of the European Parliament by making or causing to be made false or dishonest claims for travel expenses.

She further denies a charge that between October 14 2009 and December 31 2010 she fraudulently transferred criminal property into her bank account.

Nikki Sinclaire fraud trial: Former Ukip MEP questions why she would have started making allegedly dodgy expenses claims

An ex-Ukip MEP has urged a trial jury to consider why she would have started making allegedly dodgy expenses claims in the same month she was warned about a British colleague later jailed for a similar claims fiddle.

Nikki SinclaireNikki Sinclaire

Sinclaire has alleged her expenses were submitted by her staff, and at least one claim was “deliberately corrupted” by a former aide, who was acting as a spy in her camp for the Ukip hierarchy.

Today, she told Birmingham Crown Court that in October 2009 Ukip called all its elected members together and briefed them about wrong-doing by then-MEP Tom Wise.

Wise admitted fiddling £36,000 of his Brussels travel expenses at his trial the following month.

The jury in Sinclaire’s case has already heard how the first of what the Crown alleges were 10 dodgy claims date from October 2009 – the month of the Wise briefing.

Sinclaire, in the witness box, told jurors it would have defied sense for her to start filing false claims straight after being informed that Mr Wise, who represented the UK’s East region, was being prosecuted.

She said: “All Ukip MEPs were called to either Brussels of Strasbourg, I don’t remember which.

“We were briefed about Tom Wise, who was charged over expenses fraud – and what to say to the media if we were asked about it.

“The reason I say that is because the first claims of the allegations against me were right at this time.”

She added: “Why would that be the time I would decide to start fiddling my expenses?”

Sinclaire’s lawyers have claimed she did not deliberately sign off incorrect claims to gain financially, saying the total amount she could have made was “about 3,000 euro” – £2,465.

Sinclaire has also claimed at least one of her claims was “deliberately corrupted” by her former aide, John Ison – though he has denied any wrong-doing.

Jurors have also heard of several examples where she could have made genuine claims, including parliamentary trips to Cyprus and Cuba, which were never submitted.

The court has already heard about a background of party infighting, with “hostility” between Sinclaire and Nigel Farage.

Sinclaire lost the party whip as a result of internal disagreements in January 2010.

Jurors have also heard evidence from key prosecution witness Mr Ison.

Under cross-examination from her barrister Sean Hammond last week, Mr Ison accepted being a “spy or a mole” in her office, and he admitted passing information about the MEP to Nigel Farage in 2009-10.

Mr Ison also accepted making 30-40 hours of covert recordings of Sinclaire, but said he only acted “for the good of the party” during the period.

Mr Ison agreed that he also sent a message to another Ukip party member during a conversation about the MEP, saying: “Ok, Plan B – fraud.”

On Tuesday, jurors heard that despite Sinclaire herself telling the EU anti-fraud unit of her suspicions about Mr Ison, no investigation was launched.

Sinclaire also contacted British police about her fears in September 2010, but was herself arrested in February 2012.

Unknown to her at the time, Mr Ison had reported her to the police in May 2010.

Asked by Mr Hammond why she made no comment in both her police interviews in February and October 2012, Sinclaire claimed she was just following her solicitor’s advice.

She said that her arrest by West Midlands Police blocked her from rejoining Ukip – which she claimed had already been agreed. She then failed to get re-elected in 2014.

The 47-year-old, of Shirley, Solihull, West Midlands, denies misconduct in a public office between October 1 2009 and July 31 2010 while a serving member of the European Parliament by making or causing to be made false or dishonest claims for travel expenses.

She further denies a charge that between October 14 2009 and December 31 2010 she fraudulently transferred criminal property into her bank account.

On the strength of the evidence to date there is no doubt that the Jury would be perverse to find Nikki Sinclaire Guilty as there is absolutely no way that the prosecution has proved its case let alone beyond reasonable doubt.
That the EU official the expert witness Mr. Burriel confirmed all that Nikki Sinclaire had said and that it was confirmed by the EU official that Sinclaire had reported her suspicions regarding her expenses long before the Police even claim to have been involved and there was no evidence from the prosecution that Burriel or Sinclaire were disbelieved on this point makes the prosecution evidence clearly unsound it would seem.
That the prosecution evidence was unsound, as a display of criminal behaviour by Sinclaire seems clearly to be the case as no intent was shown, nor is there any sign that it is other than a clerical error or even a criminal action by John Ison designed to damage Sinclaire for Nigel Farage, as it has been undeniably shown by tape recordings played in court that Nigel Farage and John Ison were colluding. If John Ison at very least is not prosecuted it would be clearly perverse as he has admitted that he has lied under oath and the Judge has officially cautioned him relative to the risks of his dishonesty – that Nigel Farage may also be prosecuted may well also be a possibility!
It does seem that the most concrete evidence of criminality brought by the prosecution was, as the prosecution barrister stated in his summing up (closing argument), merely ‘coincidence’!
That the sum total of the allegations revolve around £2.1/2K when it has been proven in Court, and accepted by the prosecution, that Sinclaire not only did not claim for trips to Cyprus and also a trip to Cuba – all as a legitimate part of her work as an MEP nor did she draw down all of her budget in the 2 years concerned leaving over £40K unclaimed and further that in her first 3 years as an MEP Sinclaire paid from her own moniey over £90K into her work as an MEP – this case seems to me to be little more than vexatious and seemingly by a malicious action that duped an incompetent or corrupt police force!
Bear in mind neither the EU payments office nor The EU’s fraud department were remotely interested in the claims, even when told about them and had they been Sinclaire had long before informed them and the Police that she had concerns that someone was acting unlawfully in her office but she had neither the time, due to pressure of duties as an MEP, nor the skills required to investigate the problem she had reported!
That Nikki Sinclaire was able to call an independent forensic accountant to substantiate her every claim and verify the details of her account yet the police prosecution were unable to present any corroborated evidence or lead any evidence of consequence after spending a sum approaching £1.1/2Million (estimate) of public money trying to build a case out of errors amounting to £2.1/2K speaks volumes!
Fri-08-Jul-2016
We have now heard all the evidence for both the prosecution and the defence also the closing arguments of first the prosecution barrister Antonie Muller and the barrister for the defence Sean Hammond.
Today Judge Stephen Eyre QC has informed the Court he will be summing up the case for the jury, which he estimates will take upto 3 hours, in that the Court will sit from 10am that implies that by 1pm the trial will be over at which time it will be a matter for the judge to decide whether to ajourn the court until Monday or to immediately send out the jury for deliberation. We shall see!
12:00hrs. Fri-08-2016
I have just been notified that the Judge’s summing up has been completed and was reasonable and balanced and neutral in tone. The Judge has sent the jury out to deliberate and based on the facts it is my opinion that for the jury to find guilty would be a perverse decision. The jury will take as long as they wish/need to deliberate before returning to court later today or on Monday to deliver their verdict. We shall see!
I have been surprised that Simon Timothy Orme Specialist Lawyer in the CPS Special Crime Division, their London office I believe, sat in through more than half the trial as dis at least 2 police officers each day and on some days as many as 3 police – the reason for their presence at such a cost is concerning!

I have just heard that the jury has been sent home for the weekend, as having not reached a verdict yet.

Sinclaire had always admitted the claims on which the Crown’s case rested were in “error”, but told jurors she “paid no attention” to travel expenses as it was her office staff’s job.

She told the jury: “I was negligent – I am embarrassed about it” – however, she denied any deliberate wrong-doing.

Sinclaire said the expenses were either mistakes by staff, or in at least one claim were “deliberately corrupted” by her former aide Mr Ison.

In his evidence, Mr Ison admitted before the jury acting as a spy in her camp for senior Ukip figures.

The ex-MEP’s lawyers instructed a forensic accountant who found she would have made just over £3,000 from the claims, while the Crown only placed the figure in “the thousands of pounds”.

But Sinclaire, speaking during her trial, said: “I’d just achieved a lifetime ambition to become an MEP and what, I’d throw it away for £3,000, when there was ample budget in the (parliamentary) allowances which I could just take?”

Jurors also heard of several examples where she could have made genuine claims, including parliamentary trips to Cyprus and Cuba, and staff costs, which were never submitted, and effectively left her out of pocket.

Sinclaire alleged that compiling expenses claims was dealt with by her Birmingham office staff, while she just copied information supplied by her assistants onto the forms, before signing them off.

The jury had also heard about a background of Ukip infighting and how Sinclaire lost the party whip as a result of internal disagreements in January 2010.

Jurors heard evidence from key prosecution witness Mr Ison.

Under cross examination from Sinclaire’s barrister Sean Hammond, Mr Ison accepted being a “spy or a mole” in her office, and admitted passing information about the MEP to Nigel Farage in 2009-10.

Mr Ison also accepted making 30-40 hours of covert recordings of Sinclaire, and sending a message to another Ukip colleague claiming he had hacked her laptop.

He said he had only acted “for the good of the party” and when asked in court, denied any wrongdoing.

Sinclaire told the EU anti-fraud unit she suspected Mr Ison had filed bogus claims in her name, but no investigation was launched.

She contacted British police in September 2010, but was herself arrested in February 2012.

Unknown to her at the time, Mr Ison had reported her to the police in May 2010.

She said that her subsequent arrest by West Midlands Police, blocked her from re-joining Ukip. She then failed to get re-elected in 2014.

Nikki Sinclaire cleared: Expenses probe was ‘vanity’ caseNikki Sinclaire

A former UKIP MEP cleared of expenses fraud has criticised police for leading a “vanity case” against her.

Nikki Sinclaire, who represented the West Midlands until 2014, had denied deliberately submitting 10 dishonest claims for road travel she never made.

She said her expenses were “deliberately corrupted” by ex-office aide John Ison. The court heard he gave details to UKIP leader Nigel Farage.

West Midlands Police said it had acted in a “diligent and professional” way.

 

Ms Sinclaire, of Shirley, Solihull, West Midlands, had been accused of fiddling £3,250 in European parliamentary expenses claims and laundering the cash.

Mr Ison had admitted in court sending a message to another party about Ms Sinclaire, which read: “Ok, Plan B – fraud.”

The jury at Birmingham Crown Court also heard there had been at atmosphere of “hostility” between Ms Sinclaire and Mr Farage.

‘Unnecessary’ case

Speaking outside court, Ms Sinclaire, 47, said: “In times of police cutbacks I find it incredible that on the say-so of one embittered man, West Midlands (Police) spent, I believe, in the region of £1.5 million chasing a vanity case of £3,200.”

She had said the expenses were either mistakes by staff, or in at least one case were “deliberately corrupted” by her former aide.

She admitted being negligent and said she was “embarrassed” by her errors, but denied any deliberate wrong-doing, saying she “paid no attention” to travel expenses as it was her office staff’s job.

Following the verdict, Ms Sinclaire – the first ever transgender parliamentarian in the UK – spoke of her relief, saying her acquittal was “the only just verdict”.

“I was arrested more than four years ago, and that unnecessary event had blighted my political career and, more importantly, my life,” she said.

“I now welcome the opportunity to move forward.”

A spokesman for West Midlands Police said the force “acknowledged” the verdict, but defended the investigation.

“Our criminal justice system quite rightly demands a very high standard of proof,” he said.

Nikki Sinclaire: ‘I have this thing about injustice’

The UK’s first transgender parliamentary politician Nikki Sinclaire has spent much of her life fighting battles – personal and professional.

As she is cleared of misconduct in a public office and fraud charges the BBC looks at her political and private life.

The title of Nikki Sinclaire’s second book, Never Give Up, is a clear indication of her determination.

“Because of the things that have happened to me, I have this thing about injustice. I feel I have to stand up whether it’s myself, or other people,” she told the BBC following its launch.

“I hate it when authorities put down ordinary people and I feel the need to stand up for them.”

Image captionThe court heard Nikkie Sinclaire had a “poor” relationship with then UKIP leader Nigel Farage

Her resolve emerged at a very young age. She was just eight years old when she became interested in politics while watching the news after school.

But it was a couple of years later, during the Winter of Discontent, that her interest really peaked.

“My father supported the unions and I would question him – why this conflict? I thought the unions were supposed to be for the working man, and also the Labour Party?

“He could never answer that satisfactorily to me. Coming from a very poor, working-class council estate, I began to think ‘why don’t we have these things?’

Her “very working class” father was “perturbed” when he learned of her admiration for Margaret Thatcher.

As her political obsession intensified in her teens, so did a very private struggle.

Since the age of three, she believed she was trapped in the wrong body.

It wasn’t until she reached 16 that Ms Sinclaire confided her feelings to a doctor, spilling out “16 years of hurt”, only to be told it was a “fantasy”.

Undeterred, she eventually underwent gender reassignment surgery at 23.

A staunch Eurosceptic, she became an active member of UKIP and held many positions within the party. After 10 years – and two defeats in UK general elections – she was successfully voted in as the party’s MEP for the West Midlands in June 2009.

Image captionSinclaire gathered 100,000 signatures on a petition calling for an EU referendum

But her success within UKIP was short-lived. Just nine months later, in March 2010, Ms Sinclaire was expelled from the party after refusing to take part in a multi-national group it had joined in the European Parliament, citing some members “homophobic views”.

It was a blow she was not going to accept easily. In December that year, having taken her former bosses to a tribunal, a judge found in her favour when UKIP failed to file a defence in time.

As an independent MEP, Ms Sinclaire continued her tireless campaign for a referendum on Europe.

In 2011, she gathered 100,000 names to a petition, which led to a Conservative rebellion of about 70 MPs, and “forced David Cameron to the despatch box”, a proud Ms Sinclaire later told the BBC.

Again, the joy was short-lived. By February 2012, West Midlands Police had begun their fraud investigation and arrested Ms Sinclaire on suspicion of defrauding the European Parliament.

Image captionNikki Sinclaire arriving at court for her trial. She said the expenses were either mistakes by staff or, in at least one claim, were “deliberately corrupted”.

“The allegations at hand are old allegations from a disgruntled ex-employee”, Ms Sinclaire said in a statement, adding she had “nothing to hide”.

The following year, Ms Sinclaire decided to reveal her gender reassignment secret, which she said was the result of threats from UKIP and journalists.

She later went on to say she had been “overwhelmed” by the support from members of the public.

In June 2014, Ms Sinclaire lost her seat to Labour’s Neena Gill and a month later, more than two years after her first police interview, she was charged with money laundering and misconduct in public office.

She was accused of making false and dishonest submissions for travelling expenses and transferring the proceeds of fraud through a bank account – something the politician said she “strongly refuted”.

It took another two years for the case to come to court, ironically, scheduled just days after Ms Sinclaire’s British independence dream came true.

The day after the referendum, there was not a hint of the impending court proceedings on her Twitter account.

Instead, as she celebrated the victory, her doggedness shone through once again.

“We did it Maggie,” she tweeted. “We did it. We got our country back. I never gave up.”

IT IS WORTH ASKING:

It is worth asking just how widespread was the criminal conspiracy against Nikki Sinclaire – clearly it involved Nigel Farage & John Ison conspiring to pervert the course of justice together possibly with others as was led as evidence in Court including tape recording of a conversation between Nigel Farage and John Ison and the details surrounding that conspiracy between them as shown in evidence.

Conspiracy to pervert the course of justice involving John Ison is indisputable as also shown by the various text messages and his message ‘Plan B – Fraud‘.

However there would seem to be evidence that the conspiracy was more widespread as this Tweet from the odious halfwit Mick McGough of May 2014 shows:

 

McGOUGH, Michael 17 TWEET re Nikki S
This would seem to show that Ukip officials and leadership were colluding with the Police.
Sadly this would seem not to be as far fetched as it would seem, not only are the police under the spotlight for their activities with regard to the allegedly unsound conviction of Jasna Badzak and I too have experience of the apparent collusion between Police of the Met. and Gerard Batten when the police acted for Gerard Batten on a half baked claim he made against me – fortunately I was beyond the jurisdiction of the Met. in these circumstances and after a 3 hour interview under caution on tape the Met’s. vexatious claims were unsustainable.
It is also worth noting that John Ison has admitted to stealing material from Nikki Sinclaire and gaining unlawful entry to her offices he has also made it abundantly clear that he is criminally in breech of the Misuse of computers Act’ and has put sophisticated spyware on Nikki Sinclaire’s computers together with downloading the entire contents of her laptop. These charges must be prosecuted against John Ison for not only Justice to be seen to be done but also for closure of this obscene chapter in British politics.
Let us also remember that irresponsibly and profligately in a period of National austerity the Police & CPS squandered an estimated £1,500,000 in trying to prove a hard working MEP Nikki Sinclaire who whilst other MEPs cash in on every bit on which they can claim Nikki Sinclaire was proven to have not claimed on numerous costly claims she could have made and in the 3 years in question paid in £91,000 of her own money to support her work as an MEP – yet the police were persuing her for about £3,000 they claimed she had ‘fiddled’ to enrich herself.
The entire case would have come to a juddering halt if the police had rubbed two brain cells together and had asked her about the so called documentary proof they claimed to have – particularly as she had reported problems and discrepancies to the EU Payments Office, OLAF and the British Police long before she had any possible incling that the police were aiding those trying to set her up!
It is also apposite to ask what the hell Simon Orm’s role in all this was on behalf of Ukip or the CPS, minded that it was also he who authorised the prosecution of Jasna Badzak in London was that for the CPS or for Ukip?
May I suggest for further clarification of the corruption in Nigel Farage’s Ukip party that you watch the BBC West Midlands TV clip of another Ukip MEP and past deputy leader of Ukip:

Do also note:

Speaking outside court, she said: “In times of police cutbacks I find it incredible that on the say-so of one embittered man West Midlands Police spent, I believe in the region of £1.5 million chasing a vanity case of £3,200.”

The force defended its handling of a “diligent and professional” investigation, but has declined to say how much the inquiry cost.

which leads me to believe that it may well have been even more and when you realise, as the BBC confirmed, the Police had at least 27 serving officers working on this case the rate at which they were wasting public money was quite staggering, all on the sayso of one embittered liar seeking to curry favour with his handler Nigel Farage,to whom he was reporting, as he spied on his employer and betrayed her.

Surely the police must have dome a CRB check on John Ison and found out some of the basic facts about him – note what I was able to ascertain about the odious little man with a bit of effort on Google CLICK HERE
