Nigel Farage So Clearly Exposed As Un-Trustworthy & Inept, as the media are more frequently exposing and as denounced by one of his more, until recently, loyal partners in crime, Douglas Denny

Hi,
it must be particularly gaulling for Nigel Farage that this cartoon, showing that the media has seen through his paper thin self publicity and have clearly got the message of his being no ‘Superman’ in a cape but just a silly little man in a seedy spivs shabby chique coat, made fashionable as a spin off of the ‘Teddy Boy’ era when Saville Row’s aim to issue an Edwardian style of long jackets and were gazzumped by their own cutters and workshops in the East End slums of London.

Nigel Farage is shown in the cartoon as more akin to the insecure tantrums of Kim Jong-Un(hinged), and all in public circulation the day before Ukip’s anniversary, having been founded 22 years ago on 03-Sep-1993.

Even his staggeringly dishonest and corrupt erstwhile fixer Douglas Denny has once again denounced him – such a pity Douglas Denny lacks the integrity and backbone to expose the truth in full; of the corruption, fraud, bullying, rigging and profligacy Nigel Farage has been so closely involved in, using useful idiots like Denny, John Moran, John Whittaker, David Bannerman, Mark Croucher, John Ison, David Lott, Annabelle Fuller, Mick McGough, Christopher Gill, Gerard Batten and the like as his mouthpieces and fixers.
(Farage must be aware that some of his worms have turned!)
I guess it is hardly surprising that a little man like Denny lacks the backbone and ethics to tell the truth as he was so involved in the corruption and huge sums of money that seem to have unaccountably spiritted away (trousered?) by Nigel Farage and his direct cronies, that he may fear for his own liberty!
It is quite surprising that in 22 years Ukip have achieved so staggeringly little, relative to the colossal amount of money they have had, for Britain other than the enrichment and patform Nigel Farage has achieved for himself and the enrichment of the unsavoury clique he has gathered around him to prop up his ineptitude as a politician, bereft of clear and sound, ethical and workable policies – dependent on populism  – he is to Britain as Alex salmon and Nicolla Sturgeon are, just as Tony Blair, Gordon Brown, Jack Straw and thwe present leadership contenders are to the Labour Party – catastrophicly divisive.
Even the media are finally plucking up the courage to point out that despite Ukip garnering just under 4M votes dotted around the country Nigel Farage is very much a ‘marmite’ character liked by a vociferous minority yet reveiled and held in contempt by the vaste majority – so much so that the General Election was, like all other domestic elections, an abject failure for Ukip and for Nigel Farage even more so having had his 8th. failure to get elected as an MP. His unpopularity is so dangerous and divisive for these United Kingdoms many now realise his involvement in the upcoming EU Referendum may well be the most damaging input to the Campaign to Leave_The_EU, causing many who would vote for the proposition to reconsider their stance and either abstain or vote against!
Here is the cartoon from yesterdays Telegraph:
FARAGE, Nigel 106 Kim Yung Nige 02-Sep-2915
From: “Douglas” <ddennyoptom@gmail.com>
Date: Thu, 3 Sep 2015 20:53:46 +0000
To: Denny Douglas. BSc.\(Hons\)<douglas.denny@btopenworld.com>
Subject: Telegraph Wed2nd Sept Cartoon

Political Distribution List.

Dear Friends and Ex-colleagues,

I note in the Adams cartoon in The Daily Telegraph (Wed 2nd Sept), it is clear the news media have Nigel “sussed” exactly.

It was always the danger of having a dictatorial leader that he would lead in a manner to enhance his own image rather than join in with the larger and far better organised ‘NO’ campaign for the greater good of the EU -OUT cause.

By being so self-centred, by having no response or answers to the referendum in terms of party policy, by denying and ignoring the obvious fundamental changes which have now occurred in British politics with the announcement of the referendum, …this has adversely affected the very rationale of UKIP’s existence and what it stands for as per the UKIP constitution. It is clear Nigel Farage has not thought it out.
UKIP’s very future as a political party is thrown into doubt: for what can UKIP do in British politics after the referendum? What then is the point of UKIP?
I believe UKIP events have left UKIP behind, and as a party it has therefore now become defunct…obsolete.

Nigel has never addressed the main issue which has always been the Achilles Heel of UKIP – what to do in the event that a government actually does give the British people a referendum for being IN or OUT of the EU. Such a referendum is precisely what I and most others in UKIP have been campaigning for in the last sixteen years or more that I have been inside UKIP, and longer outside of UKIP before that.

The Conservatives having now conceded that crucial referendum have, in doing so, cut the legs from under Nigel and his non-policies, thereby crippling UKIP.

UKIP did have a minor role to play in the lead up to the referendum – but only if the Leader Nigle Farage had accepted UKIP being a part of the ‘NO’ campaign – which will gain momentum in due course. He has foolishly rejected that for the sake of his own vanity, hence the NO campaign will leave Nigel and UKIP behind in it’s dust-wake as it forges ahead with good funding and high-powered people to speak on the ‘NO’ campaign’s behalf.
Nigel has cut himself and UKIP off from this vital role…. a very stupid decision in my opinion.

Douglas Denny. Bosham.

Nigel Farage Makes A Mockery Of Voters’ Incomes The Times follows the monkey further up the tree!

.

~~~~~~~~~~#########~~~~~~~~~~
.
Hi,
with a basic income of over £100,000 and for years ensuring his wife was paid an additional £25,000+ and with chauffeur expenses fully funded by the EU when on the continent and an additional £60,000 of funding for his UK chauffeur paid for from Ukip funds not to mention a high level of expenses fully funded by the tax payers and the ability to have boasted of ‘making’ around £2M in expenses to a press luncheon some years ago.
This is the man who deposited around £1/4Million into an off shore bank account and claimed he had spent around £211,000 on ‘other expenses on his office accounts on ‘other expenses’! Yet he pleads poverty!
This makes a mokery of the incomes of many of the pensioners and lower middle class & working class who form the base of Ukip’s supporters and who make donations through scams like the Ashcroft Call Center he oversaw and of which was one of the signators to its bank account!
Accounts we are assured by Ukip’s chairman at the time, David Bannerman, which showed that of the funds that were raised less than 15% ever reac hed the party and we now know that although Nigel Farage described it at the time as Ukip’s most profitable ever fund raising ‘scheme’ we note that there are still no credible accounts and seemingly no vat. was ever paid nor return made, though clearly due.
Clearly Nigel Farage is profligate and self indulgent but even so his pretence at poverty is risible, little wonder he has never provided the transparent accounts for himself, his MEPs or even the party where he has in ghis gifty some 30 to 40 salaried staff some with incomes of wello over £100,000 a year and has been clearly alleged to have even put his mistress on the payroll on an inflated salary!
As I have often warned Ukip ‘The higher up the tree the monkey climbs the more you see its @rse’.

Farage: I’m the poorest politician I know

Nigel Farage has claimed that he is one of the poorest figures in British politics, despite earning a six-figure sum from his MEP salary and media appearance fees.

The Ukip leader told a Channel 4 programme that he made significant financial sacrifices to pursue a political career and has had to live on “about half what the local headmaster or GP earns”.

“I don’t think I know anyone in politics who is as poor as we are,” Mr Farage claimed in a spin-off of Gogglebox, the Channel 4 reality show about families watching television. “We live in a small semi-detached cottage in the country, and I can barely afford to live there,” he said. “We don’t drive flash cars. We don’t have expensive holidays. We haven’t done for ten years.”

Mr Farage, who has been an MEP for 15 years, receives a salary of around £75,000 as well as travel expenses, a subsistence allowance of €304 (£238) a day when he is in Brussels or Strasbourg, and medical insurance.

In addition to his income from the European Parliament, Mr Farage channels fees for media appearances and lectures through a personal service company called Thorn in the Side Limited which made a profit of £45,488 in 2012/2013, bringing his total annual earnings to more than £100,000.

He has previously held shares in a city trading firm, Farage Limited, which paid out £969,000 in dividends to his brother and he has apologised for “an error” in setting up a trust in the Isle of Man in 2003 in a bid to reduce his family’s inheritance tax bills. He has said he did not avoid or evade any tax.

Mr Farage is driven around the country in a luxury 4×4 paid for out of a £60,000-a-year chauffeur allowance provided by the party since September last year, as revealed by The Times this week. Ukip also covers the cost of a team of bodyguards.

He makes the claim about his financial situation in an interview with Stephanie and Dominic Parker, who are among the regulars onGogglebox.

Steph and Dom Meet Nigel Farage, which will be broadcast later this month, was described by a Channel 4 executive as a “rip-roaring, alcohol-fuelled watch”.

The half-hour special features conversations between the Parkers and Mr Farage at their luxurious bed-and-breakfast in Sandwich, Kent, and at their local pub. Questioned by the couple about his political career, Mr Farage said that he regreted not being able to spend more time with his daughters but that he is comfortable with his financial situation. “I chose a course of action. Money’s not the be-all and end-all in life.”

The Ukip leader tells the couple that his wife, Kirsten Farage, “is no longer paid by the public sector” but is instead paid by the party. However, Raymond Finch, a former aide to Mr Farage who was elected as an MEP last May, is currently employing the leader’s wife as an assistant paid for out of his EU staffing allowance, according to the European Parliament’s website.

Mr Farage insists on the programme that he has no ambitions to become prime minister. “There are two types of people in politics: those that want to be something and those who want to do something. I want to do something.”

He complains that relentless media attention has impacted his family, with journalists staking out his house and his local pub. “The level of media intrusion is the hardest thing,” he says.

Specsavers‘, A Major Firm Drops Sponsorship of a meeting in the Isle of Man Due To Nigel Farage’s involvement.

.

~~~~~~~~~~#########~~~~~~~~~~
.
Hi,
it is notable that Ehe Isle of Man Sporting & Dining Club, who are sponsored by Specsavers have had politicians as speakers previously with no mention of difficulty.
Perhaps it was in fact due to the dishonesty of the speaker who had set up an IoM account to reduce tax liabilities yet claimed, as an ex banker he was unaware that the IoM was a tax haven, which for a man who deposited £1/4Million in one payment alone is stunningly implausible!
As I recall Nigel Farage’s first notable visit to the Isle of Man was with Ashley Mote, who he had brought into Ukip displacing his long term allie David Lott as his number two candidate in his EU region for the election of MEPs – in order to enhance his electoral process and provide some gravitas to his campaign.
David Lott was cast aside after years of dedication and loyalty to Farage. Thus Ashley Mote was selected by Farage and placed in position becoming an MEP.
You will note, if you follow Ukip that Farage has enshrined his absolute right to place chums and people of ‘USE’ to him in favourable positions at the expense of democraticly selected candidates. Historically one of Nigel Farage’s greatest allies and operator of this dishonest behaviour was Douglas Denny who has recently found himself the victim of his own methods see CLICK HERE
Sadly it is unlikely that Douglas Denny will have the moral fiber and integrity to tell his tale of just how extensive the corruption in Ukip leadership was, be that in the rigging of elections or in the vanishing of large sums of Ukip members’, supporters & tax payers’ money. It seems all too likely this odious and dishonest little man it too frightened of being embroiled in the criminal proceedings he could instigate with his knowledge and personal involvement – including exposure of the lies and obfusscation surrounding the Ashford scam.
A service that could be given to Justice and the body politic were there honourable men amongst such as Douglas Denny, Mike Nattrass, John Wittaker, John Moran, David Lott, Gerard Batten, Derek Clark, Christopher Gill, Godfrey Bloom, Bruce Lawson and their like but sadly I believe none will have the sense of duty to our Country nor the integrity or honour to step forward and tell the truth.
Do however remember the actions of one honourable man who set the example CLICK HERE

Should have gone to Specsavers? Sponsor drops Farage talk

Nigel Farage

Nigel Farage

Specsavers has asked for its sponsorship branding to be pulled for tonight’s sell-out talk by UKIP leader Nigel Farage.

The event at the Gaiety Theatre in Douglas has been organised by the Isle of Man Sporting and Dining Club.

Specsavers has sponsored the Sporting and Dining Club since 2013.

A spokesman for the company stressed the Specsavers store in Douglas has not pulled its sponsorship of the Sporting and Dining Club but it had requested to the organiser that its logo and name is not included in the publicity for this particular event.

He explained: ‘The reason for this is that Specsavers has no political affiliation and therefore does not feel it appropriate to be associated by name with a lecture given by a political party leader, especially with a General Election on the horizon.’

UKIP leader Nigel Farage is the latest high-profile guest to speak to the Sporting and Dining Club.

Other politicians or former MPs invited to appear have included Respect Party founder George Galloway, former Tory Ministers Ann Widdecombe and Michael Portillo and former Tory peer Jeffrey Archer.

I wonder if he will be making a deposit in an offshore account this time around?

You have to wonder why they wanted to put their name to this event in the first place?

It is likely to have been due to the fact that by sponsoring the event, by extension, you are showing support for the beliefs he represents. I’d guess Specsavers head office might have made the call to drop the sponsorship.

Such a decision makes complete sense. The man is a vile, albeit laughable character who takes advantage of people’s ignorance/their willingness to believe the nonsense he comes out with.

Unsurprisingly, the thumbs down commence. I say unsurprisingly as most contributors on here appear to be the sort who love to be spoon fed the warm diarrhoea he spouts and regurgitate in poorly constructed posts as if it was their idea all along.

Here’s why sponsoring an event involving Nigal Farage, UKIP leader, would be considered inappropriate by Specsavers.

Specsavers undoubtedly as an employer, have to adhere employment law (I am unsure if they are Investor In People accredited)
I suppose all you PC haters hate the fact that under employment law, you can’t discriminate against people on the basis of sex, age, religion, sexuality, race etc. Whereas Farage and and his party are the complete opposite.

By spreading lies about how Brussel’s is taking over control and immigrants are taking our jobs, he’s got himself into a lucratively paid MEP role because people are foolish enough to believe it. Don’t believe me? Why does Britain First, a violent splinter group of the BNP, have over 20 million followers on facebook?

Interestingly, Farage refuses to publish he’s expenses when he’s acting as an MEP…But that’s okay, he’s fighting for our freedom in Brussel’s against their hostile takeover. Oh wait a minute, just how many meetings has he attended and how many has he voted on out of all those he should have attended?…

UCL reported the other week that EU migrant arrivals between 2001 and 2011 contributed £20bn more in taxes than they received in benefits. Yet in face of actual evidence proving them wrong, xenophobes and racists won’t concede they are full of excrement. Farage will continue to tell you that Romanian’s are coming to take your job. Which is nonsense.

Other members of his party include individuals who have
1 – blamed flooding on gay marriage
2 – opposed foreign aid to ‘bongo bongo land’
3 – told Lenny Henry to emigrate to ‘a black country’
4 – don’t forget their calypso song…

Yeah, so hardly surprising that a corporation like Specsavers do not want to be associated with scum like Mr Farage

Strange, it’s been on sale for months and they only want to withdraw their name from it now!

There was no problem sponsoring other politicians who have spoken at their events.

2:41 PM on 11/11/2014

I can’t recall if they sponsored the George Galloway evening last November. He’s equally as troublesome/offensive, but maybe not as ‘high profile’…

Neil Hamilton and Ukip: it just wasn’t meant to be

It seems that Neil and Christine Hamilton, and their chequered history, are too embarrassing – even for Nigel Farage’s party

Earlier this year, James Landale, deputy political editor for BBC News, reported on a form doing the rounds of potential UK Independence party candidates at their conference in Torquay. It was a list of statements, asking them to declare that they had never engaged in racist behaviour, or had links to organisations that might bring the party into disrepute. * Among the statements: “I do not have any ‘skeletons in my cupboard’ that may cause me or Ukip embarrassment if they were to come out during the election.”

This seemed slightly incongruous, considering the identity of the man then leading the party’s campaign for the European elections in May. It’s debatable whether Neil Hamilton has any skeletons left in his cupboards, given the graveyard that dances around him. There is, of course, the cash-for-questions affair he was embroiled in while MP for Tatton in the 1990s – a scandal which led him to resign from his post as a minister in John Major’s government, and eventually leave parliament in disgrace, synonymous with sleaze. There is the libel suit he brought against the Guardian, which he abandoned the day before the trial was due to start in 1996, and many other embarrassing incidents in the years since. Once you have seen Hamilton stripped to the waist, cradling his wife Christine, recreating the pottery scene from the film Ghost, the image cannot be easily erased.

So perhaps it’s not surprising that, as the Observer reported this weekend, Hamilton has been dropped as Ukip’s campaigns director. With questions having been raised about Nigel Farage‘s use of EU allowances over the past few weeks – allegations that Farage calls “outrageous” – an Observer report suggests that Hamilton’s demotion stems from fears his reputation might leave Ukip vulnerable to sleaze allegations. There’s also the small matter of Hamilton’s comments about the party’s main donor, Paul Sykes, at Ukip’s conference in February. “So far, we haven’t seen the colour of his money,” he told the Observer.

In The Times earlier this year, it was reported that the Hamiltons had initially been wooed to the party by Farage, over a “four-bottle lunch” at a Westminster restaurant. Neil Hamilton was elected to the party’s National Executive Committee in 2011, but had his application to become a Ukip MEP rejected last August. Still, his star seemed on the rise. That same month, the Telegraph reported Farage was keen to make him either chief of staff or deputy secretary general of the party’s group in the European Parliament, but in February Farage referred to Hamilton as a “backroom boy”, and he has now reportedly been demoted to a regional support role. Even in a party as legendarily odd as Ukip, Neil Hamilton may have too many skeletons to bear.

UKIP ARCHIVE SKELETON 01
Probably the most interesting part of this article is not just Nigel Farage’s natural affinity with sleaze and corruption, dishonesty & the debasement of the body politic as best shown by his personal appointments within UKIP as with his mistresses, ex or otherwise, on the tax payers’ bounty and his lies about employing family members as exposed by his funding of his wife at the expense of the tax payers, and of of course his personal appointments of some of the sleasiest and doggiest liars and associates in politics from the racial extremists he chooses to be associated with in The EFD Group and the likes of the corrupt journalist Patrick O’Flynn, the discredited and ousted Gawain Towler, the convicted benefits fraudster Clive Page, the odious and outspoken extremist & superstitious racist Gerard Batten and his slease associates, the liar and low life John Moran, the thief and embezzeler Tom Wise, the untrustworthy turncoat, liar and fraudster David Bannerman, the dishonest self publicist and fantasy whistle blower Marta Andreasen, those found guilty of abuse of public funds ordered to repay money corruptly purloined such as Jeffrey Titford, Graham Booth, Tom Wise (who shared his stolen money with Farage himself) the large sum the liar cheat and thief Derek Clark was ordered to repay, then of course tyhere is farage’s personal sewer5 rat Mark Croucher and t6he buffoon Kelly who passes for PR in Farage’s EFD Group and others of dubious merit, including Farage himself.
Even Farage’s close association with and approval of Jasna Badzak will surprise many and it will be an appointment he will much rue after the ongoing police inquiry into the sound jurisprudence of the judiciary, police and body politic in her recent questionable & seemingly contrived, so called conviction! Based on a methodology of which I am all too well aware having been the subject of UKIP dishonesty myself and indisputable false witness.
SWANN, Alexandra 01 & FarageLet us not forget Farage’s other protege Alexandra Swann who has defected after Farage’s personal endorsement of her arrival  who is, I am reliably informed by media associates, is it seems touting her story around the news rooms looking for a serious bidder! Can we expect Annabelle Fuller to finally pull the rug on Farage in similar fashion when the offers are adequate since it wll prove difficult for Farage to re-employ her in any capacity in the future as his friends disassociate themselves from his barrow boy tactics and efforts at self enrichment at the tax payers’ expense.
All above were personal appointments made by Nigel Farage so that as a strutting popinjay the clearly inadequate Farage could strut the farm yard and crow from the top of the dung heap he had crested around him shinning like Zirconium amongst the squalor he had created around him!Consider the claim:
* Among the statements: “I do not have any ‘skeletons in my cupboard’ that may cause me or Ukip embarrassment if they were to come out during the election”.
.

Just who would this leave in UKIP’s leadership clique and its parasitic claque – its NEC and staff?

In present terms it would most clearly leave UKIP bereft of a leader, a position it looks all too clearly that the self serving Patrick O’Flynn would seemingly be lining himself up for!

It is unfortunate that bereft of charisma and most clearly an inept and poor speaker of little credibility or track record Patrick O’Flynn provides no viable leader for UKIP should he manage to oust Farage or if Farage is ousted by his own corruption.

At least Farage has been a good performer, it is clear his weakness and insecurity have served UKIP ill in that he has forced out all who could have formed a viable leadership team of any stature for fear of their challenge or the transparency they insisted on.a detailed study of CLICK HERE and HERE will pay dividends for those seeking to expose the truth about UKIP, particularly bearing in mind CLICK.

What happened to the £287,000 donated to Farage’s local branch?
Do remember Richard Suchorzewski proved at a meeting in Derby that only approx 10% of the money raised by Ashford ever reached UKIP as subsequently confirmed by David Bannerman, the then UKIP MEP!

Did John Moran the liar and low life who ran the scam trouser the cash or share it with Nigel Farage? we may never know as 100s of £1,000s just went missing!

Richard Suchorzewski was lied about with claims he was homosexual and a BNP member for daring to ask for facts & transparency as an elected NEC member both facts were lies claimed by Nigel Farage’s personal staff.

What happened to the £287,000 donated to Farage’s local branch?

Billy Kenber and Alexi Mostrous
Published 5 minutes ago

Almost £300,000 in Ukip party donations were paid in to Nigel Farage’s local branch and withdrawn as unspecified “other costs”, raising further questions over the party’s funding.
Ukip insiders have repeatedly raised concerns over £287,734 spent by the party’s southeast branch in 2004 and 2005. The money was not used for campaigning, communications, property rental, utilities or auditing and was described only as “other” running costs, according to accounts filed with the Electoral Commission.

In subsequent years, running costs amounted to no more than £8,200. Even though the accounts itemised payments for as little as £496 on communications, they offered no explanation of how the much larger sums were spent.

The withdrawals came as Ukip was chanelling national donations generated by a controversial call centre in Ashford, Kent, into the southeast branch. So concerned were Ukip members about the call centre’s finances that they commissioned an independent report which criticised “a lack of transparency” and called for a full audit.

The fundraising operation, set up in mid-2003 in an office provided free by Alan Bown, Ukip’s biggest donor, has been credited by Mr Farage with raising at least £400,000 and boosting the membership of the fledgeling party.

However, Ukip officials have questioned why much of the donated money never made it to the party’s national coffers. Martin Haslam, the treasurer at Ukip’s southeast branch in 2005, described the call centre as an operation “where money went in and no one quite knew what happened to it”.

In 2006, a group of Ukip members in the south east commissioned a corporate due diligence company to examine the call centre’s business structure. A partial copy of the initial report obtained by The Times indicates that the company raised concerns about “a lack of transparency regarding the set-up and continuing operation of Ashford Employment Ltd [which paid the call centre staff]” and the company history of John Moran, one of the centre’s founders. Mr Moran said he was not aware of the allegations and did not want to comment further.

The report called for an independent auditor to “perform a full audit”, something that insiders say did not happen.

This week, The Times revealed that Mr Farage faces an inquiry into a “missing” £60,000 in EU allowances. Six Ukip officials have complained that their attempts to raise financial concerns were blocked. Documents filed by Ukip with Companies House and the Electoral Commission provide only a partial picture of what happened to funds raised by the call centre.

Ashford Employment Ltd, a company owned by Mr Bown and run by Ukip, was set up in October 2003 to pay for call centre workers. It spent £158,582 in 2004 and £89,456 in 2005. Once staff and the running costs had been met from donations, any surplus from Ashford was transferred to the southeast branch, according to Terry Quarterman, the centre’s former manager and a director of the company. The branch received £291,931 in donations in 2004, the year of the European elections, and £114,967 in 2005, although it is unclear how much was from Ashford.

Former Ukip members have raised concerns about the two large sums that were paid out of the branch in the same two years. In 2004, the branch recorded a £211,267 withdrawal as “other” running costs. In 2005, £89,996 was spent in the same way. Late in 2005, the call centre’s financial affairs were transferred to Ukip’s head office. Ukip said that accounts for the centre were filed with the Electoral Commission. “They were audited as legally required and found to be in order,” a spokesman said.

UKIP are, as predicted, using the spin that the many factual details being exposed by the media are being exposed as a part of an establishment conspiracy to damage UKIP because it is doing well.

Lets look at these foolish claims – firstly UKIP is not doing well that is pure hype after 21 years they still have zero MPs and have never come even close to having one elected and out of 1,750 available Counciller seats UKIP achieved a risible under 150 and of these at least 200 have already fallen out with UKIP some due to racism others due to criminality and when it comes to MEPs of those who were elected about half have quit UKIP having fallen out with Nigel Farage’s dishonesty, bullying and abuse of funds seemingly for his personal gain – including putting his wife on a salary having PROMISED not to employ family to get elected and now also employs at least one of his ex sexual partners!

Consider just how huge UKIP’s failure has been with it still little more than a one man band, more a cult founded on Nigel Farage as its showman but hardly a party more of a joke that leaves a bad taste in one’s mouth – the more you know of UKIP the more corrupt and odious one realises they are.

Documentary Proof of seemingly Criminal UKIP Corruption in perverting any meaningful democratic process in selection of candidates and officers!!

.

~~~~~~~~~~#########~~~~~~~~~~
.Hi,

earlier today, after a brief phonecall I was mailed the following copy of postings related to the corruption of UKIP and the apparent rigging the selection processes and internal elections in UKIP!

I have been unable to perform my usual checks on this material, however I do believe that it is an accurate report of that which it claims to expose and those shown to have been a part of the corruption, such as John Moran, Steve Crowther, Lisa Duffy, Peter Reeve and others have a track record where they have lied, cheated and corrupted UKIP.

I do believe the document I have been sent to be accurate and a sound report.

 More on the MEP selection process – the maladministration of Steve Crowther

Date:

 Sun, 01 Dec 2013 15:24:26 +0000

As ever more evidence appears regarding the maladministration taking place under the auspices of Steve Crowther, one has to wonder how he’s able to get away with it.  It can be taken as read that Crowther is a bully, but bullies are inherently cowardly.  Clearly, therefore, at least in my humble opinion, he is not acting in this way without the clear consent of A.N. Other(s).

Nothing shows this more clearly than in the debacle known as the UKIP MEP candidate selection process! Below you will find extracts from a statement made by a member of the NEC, as well as direct quotes from relevant NEC minutes.

A.
PS: The full statement is attached. In large part it deals with the removal of Mike Nattrass as a candidate, but what happened in the West Mids will be recognised in other regions!!!

 

NOTES REGARDING SUBMISSION OF STEVE CROWTHER

 
Mr. Crowther states an “independent panel”  was used.

The panel finally used (and it was not appointed by the NEC when actioned) has at least six people who, in my opinion and personal knowledge of people within UKIP,  I would NOT select for such a panel on the grounds of them having either potential self interest (as employees for example whose salary is dependent on the patronage of the Leadership), and/or,  of being potentially subject to undue influence from the Leadership by being close friends (like John Moran and Mr Crowther);  or very close to the Leader’s organisation for his European election campaign (such as Roger Bird).

I believe the pre-selection part of the process to be flawed,  and fatally so from a democratic point of view for UKIP members.

The pre-selection process over which you have presided which you freely admit was carried out without proper resolutions obtained is, in my opinion, seriously flawed.

I believe the results are so anomalous, and have caused such widespread dissent in the party with those affected,  as to indicate that one of two things has happened, or both:-

1) either that part of the process of selection has been seriously deficient in how it was developed and/or applied;
or
2) there has been maladministration in some form or another applied by one or more persons involved.

I  disassociate myself from it  as being the exact opposite of what was intended.

I believe it allows the possibility of, and certainly allows the accusation of, potential gerrymandering,  and I believe is fatally flawed as a democratic process by not conforming properly in its development to the Party Constitution and Rules, also by potential maladministration and/or misapplication of the rules by the party chairman Mr. Crowther.

——————————–

Ref Minutes of NEC 13th May discussion of MEP Selection.

NEC Minutes of 13th May clearly state certain people who are well known in the party, of good repute, and of good standing were to be used for that panel.

There was no dissent of these people in the NEC and an amendment to T.3.2  was proposed and carried.

Those people listed were:-

George Curtis (NEC member);
Sebastian Fairweather (NEC member);
Jeffrey Titford (Ex Party Leader);
Rachel Oxley (Ex-NEC member and head of an Independent school);
Roger Bird (Chairman of the SE selection committee and Nigel Farage’s organiser for the European elections);
Steve Crowther (chairman of the NEC);
Peter Reeve (Party Nominations Officer).

The selection panel actually used however,  was considerably different and was NOT approved by the NEC at that time,   and contained people who would in my opinion, most certainly have caused considerable debate in the NEC as to their suitability.

…… with near 100% certainty one in particular,  who was associated in one previous UKIP EU election in assisting the present Leader,  as manager and director of a Telephone Call Centre for donations, which had a bank account set-up for the Leader’s region without the knowledge of the then Party Treasurer.{Refers to John Moran}

On the 17th Aug Steve Crowther requested a vote by e-mail of all the NEC,  to make a resolution for the acceptance of a selection panel of three including himself, as he had not finished the process. This is after I had questioned the legality of the selection panels vis a vis UKIP constitution and rules,  and is a tacit admission that the selection panels were indeed deficient by not having NEC approval.

The Party Secretary {Jonathan Arnott?} first claimed he had carefully examined all the papers regarding the MEP selection process,  and said the whole of the selection process was legally sound in all respects {assuming this is Arnott speaking, his ability to make a ‘legal judgement’ is somewhat limited}.

He then later changed this opinion to an acceptance of what he called a “technicality” whereby the selection panel was deemed to be ultra vires because it had not been approved by the NEC.

On the 18th August,   Steve Crowther then called for a retrospective vote of the NEC by e-mail to regularise the deficiency.

He wanted a rapid resolution within 24 hours.

The Party Secretary claimed this was legally acceptable {see above},  and claimed it would have made no difference to the acceptance of these people if it had been put to the NEC properly earlier.

This is an incredible statement.
As a long-standing NEC member I dispute this vociferously.

The selection panel contains a significant proportion of people who were NOT on the original list put to the NEC on the 13th May and would certainly have caused considerable debate and some dissent in the NEC with some of the newly introduced people.

It was discussed briefly at NEC that party employees should not be a part of the selection process because they might be considered to have a interest in that their salary is dependent upon the patronage of the party leadership; but that was never resolved one way or another with a vote.

——————–

Further to Ref:  Paragraph 10

Para 13 states:-

“In this iteration of elections UKIP has worked especially hard to ensure that the process for selection of candidates has been as fair and transparent as possible”.

This is an incredible statement.

As an NEC member I do not feel this process has been transparent regarding the selection process at all.

In fact it is completely opaque to me as an NEC member representing the UKIP membership.

I cannot possibly say to the UKIP members “I know the process was undertaken with complete transparency and think it to be fair and equitable”.

I do not think that at all.

A sub-committee was formed but its required  functions were never satisfactorily carried out, nor its deliberations presented properly to the NEC for ratification.

This resolution for the formation of a sub-committee is contained in the following:

Document:
MEP Candidate Selection Process 2013  Revised 29.04.13
provided by Steve Crowther says:-
The sub-committee will establish a Selection Panel comprising five members selected for their experience, judgement and availability who will oversee and manage the process.

This sub-committee and its formation is mentioned in document to the NEC from Steve Crowther:
marked:

NEC 7 January 2013   MEP SELECTION

which says:-
An NEC sub-committee was set-up in October, comprising members of the NEC who are not intending to stand for MEP selection.

NEC sub-committee:-
Steve Crowther,
George Curtis,
Douglas Denny,
Toby Micklethwait,
Alan Bown,
Lisa Duffy (a),
Peter Reeve (a),
Michael Greaves (a)
(a=Advisory)

That sub-committee only sat for two sessions only  that I remember, (possibly three),  but no minutes were taken, though they should have been,  (which is why I cannot remember if two or three meetings occurred),  and not even the sub-committee’s outline decisions were given as written presentation to the NEC;  and no specific criteria for selection/assessment were ever discussed by that committee or the NEC.

As a committee it might as well have not existed.

Correct due process of the sub-committee, required by the NEC in a resolution (as above) was NOT carried out.
————————-

Another example of maladministration of the process used for MEP selection by Mr. Crowther, is that at the NEC discussion on the process, it was agreed that no member of UKIP of less than one year’s good standing would be eligible to stand as a candidate, ……

I am given to understand this NEC requirement in the selection rules of at least one year’s membership in good-standing for eligibility appears to have been ignored completely.
————————–

I have tried to ameliorate the problems by suggesting modifications to the process which could be easily implemented by resolution(s) of the NEC (obtained within the 24-hour format that Mr Crowther has already done in this case to retrospectively obtain correct due process),   and for an extraordinary meeting of the NEC to be called rapidly (within the week) when I first raised my concerns with the party chairman; but all these protestations have been turned down by the Party chairman and NEC chairman Mr. Crowther.

Note: The author of the above, Doug Denny, was removed from the NEC for submitting these statements to the Party. 

If you truly value democracy you must demand that Crowther is dismissed forthwith and that the whole selection process be revisited.

To do otherwise is akin to approving the aforesaid maladministration of Steve Crowther.

Make of this document what you will, but I for one find it to be further conclusive and irrefutable evidence of the corruption of any sort of acceptable democratic due process.That it is these same people who seek positions of Governance and the style of their corruption could well metastasise like a cancer to being a method of Governance in these United Kingdoms if they are allowed to continue their obscene self serving and self enriching behaviour shows them clearly to be unfit for purpose, unfit for public office and arguably to be criminally corrupt.

The following is a more comprehensive exposee of the abuse of authority and criminal style behaviour of UKIP leadership clique and its appointed claque:

NOTES REGARDING SUBMISSION OF STEVE CROWTHER

 

Ref Claim 3BM30448

Exhibit SJC1

 

Statement.

DENNY, Douglas 01

Douglas Denny.

NEC member.

 

Ref para 10. Mr. Crowther states an “independent panel” was used.

As the longest serving continuous elected member of the NEC I dispute this vociferously.

The panel could not be said to be “independent” in my opinon. There were people who could be said to have self-interest, or the Leader’s interests on the panel used.

 

The panel finally used (and it was not appointed by the NEC when actioned) has at least six people who, in my opinion and personal knowledge of people within UKIP, I would NOT select for such a panel on the grounds of them having

either potential self interest (as employees for example whose salary is dependent on the patronage of the Leadership),

 

and/or, of being potentially subject to undue influence from the Leadership by being close friends (like John Moran and Mr Crowther); or very close to the Leader’s organisation for his European election campaign (such as Roger Bird).

It is well known within the party, that the Leader Mr. Nigel Farage harbours grudges, and does not wish Mr. Nattrass to

be on the listing for MEP election because of the latter’s independent frame of mind and previous clashes of personality

with him over UKIP’s political directions.

Mr. Nattrass, however, is one of the longest serving members of UKIP with the greatest contribution to the party next to

the Leader Nigel Farage. His record of loyalty to the party is exemplary, he has spend a large amount of his time in his

life promoting and assisting the party; put literally many thousands of pounds of his own money into the party, and been

in most of the top positions serving the party eg: Deputy Party Leader; Party Chairman and Chairman of the NEC (the

position now held by Mr. Crowther).

That he has not been selected for the shortlist because, as Mr Crowther says: ” he simply came below the list of sixty

selected (because he is not good enough being implied)” is patently ridiculous in the extreme.

I wrote to Mr. Crowther:

I believe the pre-selection part of the process to be flawed, and fatally so from a democratic point of view for UKIP

members.

The pre-selection process over which you have presided which you freely admit was carried out without proper

resolutions obtained is, in my opinon, seriously flawed.

I believe the results are so anomalous, and have caused such widespread dissent in the party with those affected, as to

indicate that one of two things has happened, or both:-

1) either that part of the process of selection has been seriously deficient in how it was developed and/or applied; or

2) there has been maladministration in some form or another applied by one or more persons involved.

Had there been a selection of candidates by the previous process which was Regional selection by the membership;

almost certainly in my opinion, Mr. Nattrass would have come to the top of the listing for that region. To suggest he is

not good enough compared to some of those on the list accepted now is wrongful, highly anomalous and indicates there

is a severe breakdown somwhere in the process used. It is literally incredible.

This present process I helped to develop, but it has apparently become born as an abortion of that intended, which was to

allow the UKIP members a fair and clearly tranparent election of the best potential canidates to become UKIP MEPs. I

disassociate myself from it as being the exact opposite of what was intended.

I believe it allows the possibility of, and certainly allows the accusation of, potential gerrymandering, and I believe is

fatally flawed as a democratic process by not conforming properly in its development to the Party Constitution and

Rules, also by potential maladministration and/or misapplication of the rules by the party chairman Mr. Crowther.

The selection panel actually used however, was considerably different and was NOT approved by the NEC at that time,

and contained people who would in my opinon, most certainly have caused considerable debate in the NEC as to their

suitability.

Had those names been put to the NEC prior to the retrospective call for their appointment, and before they were used, I

would say some would most certainly have caused dissent, and with near 100% certainty one in particular, who was

associated in one previous UKIP EU election in assisting the present Leader, as manager and director of a Telephone

Call Centre for donations, which had a bank account set-up for the Leader’s region without the knowledge of the then

The selection panel contains a significant proportion of people who were NOT on the original list put to the NEC on the

13th May and would certainly have caused considerable debate and some dissent in the NEC with some of the newly

introduced people.

The ‘new’ listing of people was:-

Steve Crowther

Chairman of the Party and NEC. Designated chairman of the Selection Panel.

Peter Reeve

National Nominating Officer, and party employee.

George Curtis

NEC member of long standing,

Sebastian Fairweather

NEC member

Jeffrey Titford

Former MEP, former Party Leader, current Party President.

John Harvey

Former NEC member

Rachel Oxley

DID NOT PARTICIPATE. Former NEC member and Party Vice-Chairman.

Steph McWilliam

Chairman of Cornwall

Harry Aldridge

Former Chairman of Young Independence

John Moran

Long-term activist and donor. Founder director of the Ashford call centre.

Chris Cassidy

Treasurer of Young Independence.

Recently appointed National Database Manager at Lexdrum House. Party employee.

Derek Clark

Retiring MEP, long-term former NEC member.

Will Gilpin (stand in)

Party Chief Executive. Used once as a stand-in when John Moran was unable to attend a London meeting. Party

employee.

Roger Bird

Surrey County Chairman. SE Regional commmittee and likely organiser of Nigel Farage’s European election campaign.

Of these; Steve Crowther; Wil Gilpin; Chris Cassidy; Peter Reeve are party employees. It was discussed briefly at

NEC that party employees should not be a part of the selection process because they might be considered to have a

interest in that their salary is dependent upon the patronage of the party leadership; but that was never resolved one way

or another with a vote.

——————–

Further to Ref: Paragraph 10

Para 13 states:-

“In this iteration of elections UKIP has worked especially hard to ensire that the process for selection of candidates has

been as fair and transparent as possible”.

This is an incredible statement.

As an NEC member I do not feel this process has been transparent regarding the selection process at all. In fact it is

completely opaque to me as an NEC member representing the UKIP membership. I cannot possibly say to the UKIP

members “I know the process was undertaken with complete transparency and think it to be fair and equitable”. I do not

think that at all.

All that was achieved by NEC resolutions was an agreement for outline process stategy, such as the change from

Regional to a National ballot of members; of a selection process where all candidates would be ranked by a points

system; and to use an outside agency for “psychometric testing” as part of and only as an additional assistance to the

points system testing/assessment.

The most important and crucial part of the whole process however, i.e. the deciding of the actual criteria for

discrimination of the MEP candidates in the selection process was to be delegated to a sub-committee of which I was a

member; of non-interested persons i.e. not taking part in the MEP election.

In fact, to ensure ‘transparency’ and equitability, the NEC decided that all aspects of the MEP selection process was to

be decided by a delegated sub-committee specifically for the purpose, and this was decided by the NEC months before.

A sub-committee was formed but its required functions were never satisfactorily carried out, nor its deliberations

presented properly to the NEC for ratification.

This resolution for the formation of a sub-committee is contained in the following:

Document: MEP Candidate Selection Process 2013 Revised 29.04.13

provided by Steve Crowther says:-

The sub-committee will establish a Selection Panel comprising five members selected for their experience, judgement

and availability who will oversee and manage the process.

This sub-committee and its formation is mentioned in document to the NEC from Steve Crowther: marked:

NEC 7 January 2013 MEP SELECTION

which says:-

An NEC sub-committee was set-up in October, comprising members of the NEC who are not intending to stand for MEP

selection.

NEC sub-committee:-

Steve Crowther, George Curtis, Douglas Denny, Toby Micklethwait, Alan Bown, Lisa Duffy (a), Peter Reeve (a),

Michael Greaves (a)

(a=Advisory)

That sub-committee only sat for two sessions only that I remember, (possibly three), but no minutes were taken, though

they should have been, (which is why I cannot remember if two or three meetings occured), and not even the subcommittee’s

outline decisions were given as written presentation to the NEC; and no specific criteria for

selection/assessment were ever discussed by that committee or the NEC. As a committee it might as well have not

existed. Correct due process of the sub-committee, required by the NEC in a resolution (as above) was NOT carried out.

To this day I have no idea what criteria were decided upon for discrimination between candidates – that ended up entirely

under the jurisdiction of one person and of his devising – that is Steve Crowther chairman of the NEC. Mr. Crowther

never never put any of those crucial criteria forward for acceptance or discussion by the sub-committee (as should have

been done) – nor even to the the full NEC.

He took it upon himself to go ahead regardless.

————————-

Another example of maladministratoin of the process used for MEP selection by Mr. Crowther, is that at the NEC

discussion on teh process, it was agreed that no member of UKIP of less than one year’s good standing would be eligible

to stand as a candidate, but that an appeal panel would be formed to consider special cases on appeal if, for instance, a

high profile candidate appeared.

I am given to understand this NEC requirement in teh selection rules of at least one year’s membership in good-standing

for eligibility appears to have been ignored completely. There are some on the short list with less than one year’s

membership I am told, whereas Mr. Nattrass has been an active member from shortly after the inception of the party.

————————–

It is my honest belief that due process has not been carried out properly by the Party under the remit of the Party

Chairman to the detriment of a number of potential candidates including Mr. M. Nattrass. That Mr. Nattrass has a just

case for complaint; and that the process as applied was deficient in transparency and fairness to all.

I have tried to ameliorate the problems by suggesting modifications to the process which could be easily implemented by

resolution(s) of the NEC (obtained within the 24-hour format that Mr Crowther has already done in this case to

retrospectively obtain correct due process), and for an extraordinary meeting of the NEC to be called rapidly (within

the week) when I first raised my concerns with the party chairman; but all these protestations have been turned down by

the Party chairman and NEC chairman Mr. Crowther.

Hi,

You will find the poll commissioned by ‘We Demand A Referendum’ campaign of both interest and of use in achieving our aims.

YouGov Poll: Majority of Public Do Not Trust Cameron on EU.

A YouGov Poll released today by the newly formed We Demand A Referendum Party shows the majority of electorate DO NOT have trust in David Cameron to stand up for British interests in the European Union.

The poll reveals that 54% do not have trust compared to 38% that do.
The same YouGov poll also reveals that the gap between those who wish to see an EU Referendum (62%) widening over those who do not (24%). In a YouGov Poll last month the figures for the same question were 56% to 28% respectively.
Worryingly for David Cameron the poll shows that almost three out of four Conservative voters want a Referendum.
The single issue We Demand A Referendum Party held their inaugural conference in London on Friday issued an ultimatum to the Prime Minister that if he failed to facilitate a In/Out Referendum by 1st January 2014 they would stand in every region in the next European Elections under the banner ‘We Demand A Referendum’ A YouGov Poll last month showed between 16% and 33% of the electorate would vote for them in June 2014 earning them between 8 and 22 seats.
Party Chairman, Nikki Sinclaire MEP said “These results show there is increasing support from across the political spectrum for an EU Referendum – When will the politicians listen to the people?”
The West Midlands MEP added “The economic crisis has changed the ball game in Europe. Fundamental changes are underway, now is the time to decide once and for all which fork in the road to take.”
Sorry – the layout of the tables is near unusable! You will find a more readable version on You Gov’s web site!

I have reposted below the report from Gary Cartwright of the actual meeting/conference for two reasons – namely that he was there as part of the organisation and secondly as he is well informed as a long term employee of The EU.

Campaign for a Referendum: Conference a Great Success!

Its always nice to spend a couple of days in London, even if it is a working visit.

On Thursday evening I was delighted to meet Katie Hopkins for the first time: she is absolutely the right person for the campaign, as her media appearences to date have proved. We were joined at dinner at the Victory Services Club by Nikki and a number of senior members of the team, and also Roger Knapman and his wife Carolyn, as well as former Lib-Dem councillor David McGrath and his wife, both of whom I know from the campaign to clear an illegal travellers camp in Meriden. The cross-party demographics of this campaign team give us both integrity and depth.

But the real reason for the trip was our inaugural conference in Westminster. The day began with Katie appearing on ITN’s Daybreak, and by the end of the first round of speakers we were on the front page of the BBC news website. Christian Party Leader George Hargreaves, and the US broadcaster and political analyst Charlie Wolf both gave excellent speeches, adding depth to the debate on our membership of the EU and what it means for our democratic integrity.

It was a chance to catch up with old friends from various parties, including one Conservative MEP, and to meet new people.

No surprise that UKIP had at least two spotters outside, reporting back on who was attending – I suspect that a few people will be getting some unpleasant phone calls or letters from their branch chairman shortly!

Two motions were passed by conference: the first calling on HMG to establish a Royal Commission to set the terms of reference for the referendum, the second calling on the PM to call a binding referendum before Jan 1st 2014.

A great success!

To view the original on Gary Cartwright’s Brussels blog CLICK HERE
I gather from several people who were there that the inagural conference surpassed most expectations in terms of its cross party contribution, its disinterest in UKIP, seen by many as having failed and now discreditted sliding towards the history books as such, and also my contacts were pleasantly surprised at the calliber of the speeches and presentations which at many such events are all too frequently too slick, too smug and too banal delivering nothing.I am fairly reliably informed the attendance was just over 70, which although shy of the 100 I had hope for was a successful result for such short term and also in the light of the childish attacks that have so demeaned UKIP!

I note that the Tory defector and UKIP turncoat David Bannerman was present, presumably having quit the Tories due to his failure and having been put in place in Farage’s party as an MEP in the apparent realisation that he was singularly unlikely to be re-elected having seen through the corruption of UKIP he defected back to the Tories and now having realised the Tories select their prospective MEP lists rather more fairly and with considerably more integrity than UKIP he stood little chance of being above 4th. or 5th. on the list and thus not a hope of being re-elected.

It seems probable that David Bannerman was looking for a new place to hang his hat and some prospect of getting back on the gravy train with his snout in the troughs that are The EU.

It was interesting to see Tony Schofield there but as yet he still seems not to have been fully weened of his love affair with UKIP which though it has turned sour leaves him in hope over experience.

I do endorse the decision and commend to you the fact that liars and low lifes Mick McGough and John Moran were made unwelcome and asked not to enter the meeting – they have shown in much detail their lack of ethics and dishonesty and clearly had nothing to offer the new organisation and would have proved a distraction and an embarrassment as they do in UKIP.

I gather McGough is not in favour at the moment having opposed the decision of Nigel Farage and Lisa Duffy to place the idiotic and discreditted self seeker Winston McKenzie in the key role – a more obvious political prostitute and self seeker would be hard to find anywhere but in the ranks of UKIP leadership’s claque.

Imagine if UKIP ever gained any position of authority how odious it would be – the centralised denial of any sense of democratic ethics, the McCarthy style infiltration of other people’s organisations, the keeping and making of lists of attendees, the odious bigots given status in UKIP, the prostitutes, the drunken yobbery, the corruption, the controlling nature, the centralised dictatorship and so many more anti democratic actions and controlling beliefs – They call it Libertarian!!!

Let us hope that the We Demand A Referendum moves forward from this limited success to greater things, which as the polls show are both populist and popular.

UKIP Copyright Infringement by Nigel Farage etc.

This article  I believe to be true though much of the opinion posted by Martin Cole I KNOW to be wildly speculative, at best, and often completely wrong!

.

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

Hi,
since speculation or should I say guesses and rumours are being posted as if factual on Anthony Butcher’s UKIP controlled blog, regarding the incident where Nigel Farage was found guilty of copyright infringement which seemed at the time to be largely driven by the odious and corrupt sewer rat Nigel employed, to try to build ‘Black Files’ on his staff, colleagues and opponents, Mark Croucher.
I note that Barbara Booker has drawn attention to the ‘facts’ as present6ed by Martin Cole, which were as follows:
Thursday, May 01, 2003Video Tape Copyright Infringement by Nigel Farage
On 4 September 2000 local trading standards officers raided UKIP’s South East branch offices in Redhill, seizing four illegal video copies of a BBC TV documentary “The Enemy Within” about Nigel Farage, UKIP MEP for the South East Region, which were in breach of copyright. Britain in Europe AccountMosaic Productions reprint of an article by Peter Shore in the Daily Telegraph
1st June 2000, sets the background as to why Nigel Farage might have felt dismayed at the non-appearance of the BBC episode of ‘Desperately Seeking Eutopia’ with his contribution. Peter Shore Article

Mosaic Films followed this report a few days later with another, this time concluded as follows:-

Article by Christopher Booker
The Sunday Telegraph, June 4 2000

All content © Mosaic Films

An early indication that Mosaic Films took their copyright property rights very seriously!

Christopher Booker Article

On the 16th August 2000 the following item appeared in the London Evening Standard:-

“Some bad news for Nigel Farage, Euro MP for the UK Independence Party, who is the subject of a forthcoming BBC documentary due for broadcasting next month on the sparsely viewed BBC Knowledge channel.
The Beeb is furious to discover a video of the programme given to Farage by the makers is being copied and sold through the Party’s “Sovereignty” newsletter, with UKIP doing a roaring trade at five pounds a piece. The programme which includes footage of Farage’s assistant Dr Richard North describing our Spanish neighbours as: “Rag-arsed dagos,” is described by UKIP as: “A perfect tool for converting the sceptical, and perfect for showing at branch meetings.”
Not for long. The Beeb is already flexing its legal muscles. “This is a breach of copyright which won’t be tolerated,” a spokesman tells me.”

Jeffrey Titford had written a long letter of many complaints to the BBC on the 7th August 2000, ie a few days before this item appeared in the Standard, among which was the question as to why invitations to Farage to appear on Question Time had been withdrawn. The breach of copyright could, perhaps have been a contributory factor!

Jeffrey Titford’s Complaint to the BBC

What was the background to Farage’s actions, did he innocently flirt with a breach of copyright, or did he recklessly risk all to have his programme reach a wider organisation? Here the internet search engines reveal little, so we have been forced to make inquiries elsewhere.

Curiously at a UKIP NEC meeting on the 24th May 2000, a motion was put forward by Nigel Farage that any NEC member who fell foul of the law should have their legal expenses paid by the party. One present recalls that failing to gather majority support the proposer then lost his temper and stormed from the meeting.

Shortly after this the then Party Secretary learned that Nigel Farage planned to copy and sell a video tape and following enquiries learned the intent was to sell the box including the free tape inside, presumably a poor attempt to circumvent the law.

On 31st July 2000, Adam Alexander of Mosaic Films had faxed Nigel Farage confirming his company had worldwide rights to Eutopia – The Enemy Within.

On 9th August 2000 this same gentleman, Joint Managing Director of Mosaic, faxed Farage again advising:-

Quote
It has been brought to my attention that the UKIP, through a reference in Sovereignty magazine, is offering for sale copies of the film we made about you for the BBC series ‘Eutopia -The Enemy Within‘.

At no time has Mosaic given you the right to sell this programme. With reference to my fax to you of 31st July 2000, Mosaic holds the distribution rights and any exploitation of the material through video sales can only be through and with the express agreement of Mosaic Films.

Any attempts by you to make copies of and or sell the programme will be a breach of copyright, and to this end I must insist you refrain from making any sales until such time as a sales agreement has been made between us. Please advise me of any sales you may have already made.

I can confirm that under the terms of the agreement Mosaic has with the BBC the video cannot be sold until after the first transmission by the BBC, which is scheduled for sometime soon after 15th September 2000.
Unquote

This fax was copied to two people within the BBC and another Mosaic employee.

It could hardly have been clearer.

A letter of apology was sent to Mosaic Films signed on behalf of Nigel Farage by Stan Oram and believed to have been sent on 15th August 2000.

On 24th August, following an advert for the video appearing in the Independence (UKIP‘s Members Newsletter), the party secretary wrote to all NEC members advising the activity was illegal and that he would not work to defend the action which was bringing the Party into disrepute and that additionally he would oppose the use of party funds being used to meet costs that might be incurred.

Extraordinarily on 24th August the party leader Jeffrey Titford wrote to the party secretary regarding his warning stating: “ The facts are that Nigel has permission to reproduce the video, this was given by Mosaic who made the programme. I have seen this letter.”

On the same day Farage sent an angry riposte to all NEC members which he had the foresight to banner headline “NOT FOR CIRCULATION” for it is difficult to reconcile its contents with the facts as they now appear.

On 25th August, Adam Alexander of Mosaic Films was again faxing Farage, this time with a clear warning that the Surrey Trading Standards Office were on the case and demanding that the pirated videos be sent to Gloucestershire to arrive by 30th August 2000.

On 30th August the other joint managing director of Mosaic films wrote to the UKIP Party Secretary with details of the correspondence between Farage and his colleague and insisted that no pirated copies be sold.

On 4th September 2000 the party received a letter from the Surrey County Council Trading Standards office confirming that on 24th August they had purchased a pirated video and that on 1st September they had visited the Redhill Southeast branch office and seized further copies and related documentation.

On 4th September 2000 a statement was put out by the party leader Jeffrey Titford, which in light of the now revealed facts, seems so extraordinary that it can only be quoted in full:-

UKIP & The Video ‘The Enemy Within’- A statement by Jeffrey Titford MEP, Leader, UK Independence Party

The BBC has spent a great deal of licence payers’ money producing a film series about the European Union. For reasons about which we can only speculate, the BBC has shown no inclination to screen on its terrestrial channels an episode that featured the UK Independence Party, despite the fact that UKIP MEPs went to great lengths to co-operate in the film’s production.

As a result, Nigel Farage MEP took a personal initiative to obtain copies of the film with a view to selling it to UKIP members in order to raise badly needed funds for the South East region. It subsequently transpired that distribution of the film to Party members would not be possible until it has been screened on a BBC subscription channel.

More recently, a Trading Standards Officer resorted to what amounted to deception in order to obtain a copy of the video and so prove that a technical offence has been committed. As a result, the videos have been returned to their source, where they will remain pending clarification.
Nigel accepts that he acted somewhat precipitously – though with the best intention of making the film available to a wider audience. I am also satisfied that no personal gain was either intended or realised. Any further enquiries or approaches on the matter, from whatever party involved, will be referred to the UKIP South East regional office.

This unfortunate matter would never have come about if the BBC properly fulfilled its Charter obligations in regard to balanced reporting. Also, I wholly deprecate the duplicitous tactics of Trading Standards at a time when their officers are terrorising small traders with an unlawful interpretation of Weights and Measures legislation, and turning a blind eye to the sale of thousands of illegal car number plates emblazoned with the infamous EU ring of stars.

Signed Jeffrey Titford London 4 September 2000

On 8th September 2000 Mosaic Films confirmed to the UKIP Party Secretary that at no time had they given Nigel Farage either verbal or written permission to sell the tapes. That same day the Party Secretary tendered his resignation, hardly surprising in view of the events detailed above, but even less so when put against the fact that throughout this period he had also been fending off a possible prosecution by the Metropolitan Police in connection with the removal of the UKIP database, in which strangely enough Nigel Farage’s name had also been involved.

We are conscious that this parade of facts on an internet site could rob those involved of the right to reply. WE WILL POST ANY REPLIES OR REFUTATIONS ANYONE MENTIONED IN THE ABOVE POST MIGHT CARE TO MAKE. Such should be sent to ukipuncovered@hotmail.com The e-mail link that was available on this site will be restored for such purposes as soon as possible. Other comments or advice are similarly always welcomed.

To view Martin Cole’s original posting, in context CLICK HEREIt is unfortunate that Martin Cole undermined his own credibility by publishing some most amusing fantasies and guessed at speculation about me that were such patently obviously speculative rubbish that it brought into question much else that he ‘claimed’ to be fact.Sadly Martin Cole seemed unable to differentiate between fact and fiction and failed to show what he could substantiate and that which he was inventing or that which was pure fantasy which he republished for others as with much of the vituperative drivel published, at the time, by Christina Speight who seemed to see herself as the Queen of the EUroSceptic movement for a brief period.I hope this background to the UKIP / Farage copyright saga is of help.I was given a copy of the video at the time and watched it – It was quite good and along the usual lines of show off showman for which Farage has become quite well known as an entertainer. Even in 1999 it was showing UKIP’s lack of gravitas and its knock about style of insults and humour, which passes for political ability in UKIP, which seems almost totally dependent on stunts, insults, bullying and abuse for its much vaunted but never visible (in UK Ballot Boxes!) great progress.

UKIP under its present unprofessional band wagon jumping and a dependency on ‘churning’ of members to attract new more naiive and less well informed members to the cult to replace those who have seen through the sham are what seems to keep them going at a cost to the tax payer running to 10s of £Millions over the years.

UKIP’s latest band wagon is IN / OUT referendum where from their pamphlet on the issue they make it abundantly clear they plan to loose and have failed to grasp the first principles of such a referendum. No doubt they will use this as a mechanism to ‘churn’ more members and to pocket the cash generated as they seemingly did with the £1/4 Million plus of public money that was spiritted away and never accounted by Nigel Farage, David Lott & Mark Croucher in the only petition of note they have claimed to run to date.

The petition never materialised but the money did vanish in much the same way as the Ashford campaign where less than 15% of the money raised ever reached UKIP, we were told by its own chairman. An apparent fraud that was seemingly covered up by Douglas Denny, John Moran, Andrew Smith, Nigel Farage and other scoundrels and nere do wells at the time.

We are also reminded by Barbara Booker that:

‘EUtopia’ was a series of twenty documentaries, eight of which went out on BBC2 during Summer 2000, with the remaining twelve switched to BBC Digital. I had forgotten that ‘The Enemy Within’, the programme featuring Nigel Farage, was broadcast on 7 September 2000 on BBC Knowledge.

I’m not sure everyone would agree that it was favourable to UKIP. It included Richard North calling the Spanish, “rag-arsed dagos”, and Nigel Farage swearing.

And that Jeffrey Titford lied when he made the statement:
The facts are that Nigel has permission to reproduce the video, this was given by Mosaic who made the programme. I have seen this letter”.He couldn’t have. The true facts were that Mosaic had expressly forbidden Farage to copy and or sell the programme, and insisted he refrain from doing so.

It is quite clear that on a consistent basis UKIP’s leadership and their clique and also their self serving claque, including those too ashamed to put their names to their dishonesties and defamatory claims are consitent strangers to the truth – all too willing to lie, cheat and steal as their track record shows.There can really be no argument that we are fortunate that UKIP, as it is, and has been, has never had any relevance in British domestic politics as power would clearly be abused and befouled by those in control of UKIP.

TO LEAVE THE EU

What is the Exit and Survival Plan for these United Kingdoms to maximise on the many benefits when we Leave-The-EU. It is the DUTY of our Politicians and Snivil Cervants to ensure the continuity, liberty and right to self determination of our peoples – they have a DUTY to protect against crime and secure both our food and our borders.

They also have a duty to put in place contingency plans for the collapse of The EUro & The EU or the wishes of the peoples of Britain to Leave-The-EU.

NONE of these DUTIES has a single British politician upheld for over 40 years. They have drawn their incomes fraudulently and dishonesty.

Politicians are failing to tell the truth, but so are almost all wanabe Politicians, the Main Stream Media and Snivil Cervants.

The fact is that even if EVERY British MEP wanted change in The EU it would achieve NOTHING, at very best if they ALL agreed they would then  still have less than a 10% say in the governance of Britain by The EU.

Every single British Politician, of EVERY Party, elected since before we joined the EUropean Common Market, has promised to change The EU’s CAP – In 40 Years they have achieved absolutely NOTHING towards that unanimous promise!

To try to put a value on OUR Freedom is as futile as floccipaucinihilipilification and as odious as the metissage of our societies, as we rummage in the ashes of our ancestors dreams, sacrifices and achievements, the flotsam of our hopes and the jetsam of our lives, consider the Country and Anglosphere which we thus leave our children and the future, with shame!

PLEASE POST THIS TAG AS FOLLOWS: ON YOUR eMAILS & BLOGS, FORUM POSTINGS & MAILINGS – GET THE MESSAGE TO THE PEOPLE IT IS OUR BEST HOPE AS WHOEVER IS APPOINTED WILL MAKE NO DIFFERENCE AS PROVED!

I SUGGEST – since there is clearly no political party of repute, advocating or campaigning to Leave-The-EU for these United Kingdoms and restoration of our independent sovereign, democracy, with Justice & the right to self determination in a free country & minded that membership of The EU is sucking out the life blood and identity of our Country in a counter patriotic manner and at a cost in hard cash of some £53 Million a day we must consider:

Denying the self seeking & meaningless wanabe MEPs and the no longer relevant MPs the Mythical Mandate for which they clamour.

Diktat is imposed from The EU but Law should be made at Westminster, for our Country & our Peoples, by the peoples of our Country.

It is time that the entire mechanism of governance in these United Kingdoms, which has so clearly failed our Country and our peoples, was radically overhauled and updated to democratic status – failure to change will mean when we Leave-The-EU and/or it finally collapses, as it surely will, we will be no better off as the self same self styled, self enriching clique will be all too willing to betray us as they have done relative to The EU and its fore runners.

To achieve change support rational planning as with The Harrogate Agenda and similar thinking of gravitas.

Demand a Royal Commission on the cost benefits of leaving The EU and of remaining its vassals with a clear ‘Exit & Survival Strategy‘ for implementation OR responsible contingency planning dependent on THEN holding a Referendum on IN or OUT to Let-The-People-Decide!
