Ukip’s Squabbling Ferrets Are Set A Clear Example By Ukip’s Own NEC
The low grade corrupt liars, cheats, criminals & clowns that form Ukip’s management and senior members consistently manage to bring Ukip into disrepute from their leader, whether when he admits to the position of leader or is acting as puppet master, to the lowest levels of the odious squabbling claque – as they jockey for position trying to emulate their leaders and get their snouts in the troughs on the EU Gravy Train.

NEC – Bending the rules and Breaking the Law …

Breaking the Law …

6th July, 03:16:40 pm Piers Wauchope

Email to all member of the NEC:
“UKIP Councillor in Cambridgeshire, Lisa Duffy, is “certain” to replace Nigel Farage as Party Leader.” The headline and article form Peterborough Today.

8th July, 06:36:13 pm Liz Jones

Good for her and best of luck. She is certainly a hard worker.

10th July, 10:27:29 am John Bickley

She will be a very good candidate. She did a fantastic job for me when I stood in Wythenshawe & Sale in January 2014.

10th July, 10:51:10 am Rob McWhirter

Is her mobile still like a broken mirror? She might want to fix that if she stands. But yes, I like her too.

12th July, 09:29:28 pm Mick McGough

Sadly, I could write a CV on her catalogue of failures; she has made many serious cock-ups costing the party thousands and caused me no end of grief, once resulting in a re-run of an NEC election and a re-run of selection of London Assembly candidates when she missed out great chunks of CV text. Only last year she was intrinsically involved in the many failures regarding general election address print and distribution. When co-ordinator for the Eastern region EFDD referendum campaign she wilfully ignored instructions and I had to get Patrick (O’Flynn) to replace her with Andy Monk.
If anybody wishes to know more about problems with by-elections speak to Margo Parker MEP or ex NEC member Toby Micklethwaite. We on the NEC were always asked to clap her after by-elections not knowing about the work she failed to do – ask me at the next NEC.
She rarely answers phones or responds to emails and texts. After raising this at the NEC she left an auto reply to emails to the effect that if you haven’t had a reply within a week, re-send your email.

13th July, 12:21:24 pm Adrianne Smyth

Adrianne Smyth (2013-2016)
I think that is a little unfair, Mick. I totally agree with you that too many hats mean jobs are not done satisfactorily but I think over the last few years so much has been heaped on Lisa and she has really worked for too many hours and for too long on day after day.
I recall doing assessments all day with her in Huntingdonshire into the evening (tiring in itself), after which she snatched a quick supper and then drove all the way to Eastleigh that night to run the (very successful) by-election for Diane James.
Lisa has dedicated herself to the Party and the huge success UKIP is currently enjoying in East Anglia is in large part due to her efforts, especially around the Ramsey area, where she has not only promoted UKIP most successfully but also been responsible for enormous improvements in the town, the shopping, the market and the general way in which UKIP is viewed by the local populace. We need more community minded people like her in our tanks.

13th July, 12:34:42 pm Rob McWhirter

I have just posted my form assenting to her candidacy, following the withdrawal of Paul.

13th July, 01:38:15 pm Mick McGough

I’m sorry Adrianne Smyth but please read the catalogue of faults I have emailed you directly, which is far from exhaustive.

14th July, 11:39:38 pm Victoria Ayling

I will not support Lisa under any circumstances. An incompetent loud mouthed bully. Totally without conviction and more interested in filling her boots. With all the demands for intense vetting for candidates, I find it very odd that you support one who is so unsuitable.

15th July, 07:12:31 am Rob McWhirter

If she is (unsuitable), then vetting should show it. I’m looking forward to finding out who the rest of her supporters are – I only know her proposer so far …

15th July, 10:16:25 am Mick McGough

Lisa is being promoted using the Eastern database. Eastern Region Newsletter – View this in your browser.


UKIP like all political parties and organisations, has to abide by laws that govern the use, safekeeping and sharing of personal data such as addresses and phone numbers of our members. All of this information is kept on databases. We can’t just let anyone know these details. In each branch, the officers: The Chair, Secretary and Membership Secretary, may have a legal right to view the personal data of the members, but only because they have read and signed the UKIP Data Protection Forms. These forms aren’t merely for internal administration, they are a legal requirement.
The only members other than branch officers, who may have access to databases are the County and Regional Chairs and Regional Organisers. The amount of data they can access depends on their level.
The crucial law everyone must follow is contained and explained in the Data Protection Act 1998. Basically, in layman’s terms, you’re not allowed to share any data in these records with someone else, who hasn’t also signed the necessary UKIP forms, and isn’t entitled to have access because their position doesn’t warrant it or they are a non- member. If someone stops being an officer or a senior regional position, then their right to access the data also stops. They are not allowed to copy and keep it for their own means or as personal records either.
If you’re in a position of trust and you pass on any Party data, which you are responsible for, to someone who shouldn’t see it, then you have broken the law. Not simply a Party rule – the LAW. Therefore any claims that someone within UKIP was doing this, should have been immediately investigated. After all, if UKIP were known to be allowing unauthorised members free access to secure data, it would be a criminal matter. It’s not the kind of thing you would expect anyone in a senior position of the party, to turn a blind eye to.

15th July, 10:49:53 am Rob McWhirter

I’ll leave such things to the Returning Officer, Adam Richardson, (who I don’t envy).

15th July, 04:29:03 pm Victoria Ayling

Adam (Richardson):
I am very concerned that Lisa is using the Eastern Region database to promote her leadership ambitions. This I believe is wrong. Please can you look into this?

15th July, 04:45:15 pm Adam Richardson

I have already set about doing so and sent a warning to David Platt (Eastern Region Organiser for Cambridgeshire, which coincidentally is where Lisa Duffy lives). But am currently working towards a solution to promotion of candidates. No databases should be used to promote candidates or potential candidates without sign off and even then the opportunity must be afforded to ALL candidates.


Adam Richardson says he sent a warning to David Platt (the Regional Organiser). But what he doesn’t say is “and George Konstantinidis (the Eastern Regional Chairman)”. Why is the Returning Officer sending a warning to only ONE of the two possible senior regional sources who could have fed Lisa Duffy the Eastern Database? Does the Returning Officer think ONLY David Platt is capable or most likely to have broken the law? Or is this because he knew, even before it came to the attention of at least two NEC members, that David Platt and Lisa Duffy were in this together?
Why does the Returning Officer send only a warning to David Platt and not sanction him and Lisa Duffy? Lisa Duffy used to be the Director of UKIP, the position Paul Oakden held directly before being appointed the new Party Chairman. Has Lisa Duffy suddenly and conveniently forgotten the rules of obtaining and using confidential data?
Adam Richardson and the NEC have allowed David Platt and Lisa Duffy to get away with breaking the law governing Data Protection. This is deliberate criminal activity by someone who wants to be the leader of this Party. Suzanne Evans was suspended from the party for 6 months for what, complaining about what a UKIP candidate had said? Meanwhile, David Platt and Lisa Duffy are known to have broken the law, and what do they get, a warning!

Fast forward 12 days …

27th July, 09:32 am Nathan Gill

To: John Bickley
The subscriptions and renewals in a failed pathetic system, John. I stopped paying into Patrons when multi jobber Reeve and Duffy illegally campaigned against me just as they have been illegally using the Eastern Database recently. I told you this. You said someone would contact me. THEY DIDN’T. We have a database system that is not used to its potential and never has been. Patrons were left off list of members, less they were offended by being chased for renewals. How many lapsed members of the Patrons club are there and how many have confirmed they had left? What is the chase up procedure, none I’d gather?
Once we accept that elected members can ride carte blanche over the rules of the Party and act just like LibLabCon we might as well give up and go home.
I joined UKIP because I thought it was different. What I’m witnessing now is the same grubby clambering up the greasy pole, the sacrifice of principles and loyalty in order to chase power and money. It’s rather unedifying and probably in reality completely predictable.

27th July, 09:34 am Mick McGough

To: John Bickley
Still a pathetic system, totally neglected. So, let us check:
Janis has gone
Douglas’s Twitter chum Amjad has gone
You want Nathan Gill gone
Next Steven Woolfe
Then Bill Etheridge
Actually, you’d find it easier to impose the Charter, should lose half that way.

What has UKIP become?

Everyone will have their favourites in any election or race to become the leader and that’s natural. Most of us would do anything to help someone get to the top but breaking the law? There has to be a limit. What has the NEC and the Returning Officer allowed UKIP become? Why is criminal activity being allowed to go unchecked and unpunished? Despite being mentioned and brought to the attention of senior members of the party; not by one member with their own axe to grind, but by two on the NEC and on a completely separate occasion, an MEP; no internal charges, or reports to the Police are made. Wouldn’t you expect, after all the complaints UKIP officials have made about the Conservatives breaking the law on election expenses, they’d want to make sure none of our members were breaking the law?
If UKIP’s NEC cannot police itself and will not bring to account senior members in neglect of their duty, let alone members with designs on being Party Leader; behaving with full knowledge of their actions, breaking the law, then it has failed in its duty to govern and represent this Party.

Who ever thought that Lisa Duffy would be remotely suitable as leader? She might just be suitable on a Parish Council, but the thought that she might possibly become leader of a national party is just a joke. She has no public speaking skills, she has no presence.

Myra Lovett

There is no way Lisa Duffy could be regarded as a possible Leader of UKIP. She cannot even have a discussion of anything without recourse to and many hesitations reading her notes for goodness sake. She makes statements, but does nothing to explain the why’s and wherefor’s. It is tremendously tedious attempting to follow what she is on about at the best of times.

Peter Shaw

I have to agree with Myra concerning Liza Duffy, she lack’s presence whilst one could be forgiving in respect that the party is young and public skill’s are still being honed,
from the speech’s I have seen many of the current candidates lack that projection of confidence not only within themselves but to gain the attention of other’s,
It’s one thing talking at village hall’s but taking that to the extreme of national debate’s and winning over somewhat militant votes is an art that few process.

This is a poor reflection of UKIP leadership, at a time when the party should be exploiting the mess in the Labour Party those who should be leading are massaging egos, ask Farage to return it is clear that the remaining hierarchy is unfit to lead.

is what gives the remaining 10% a bad name! 


As Ever UKip Are Fighting Like Ferrets In A Sack, In A Corrupt Election! A measure of the utter incompetent as a leader Nigel Farage was is to just look at what a mess his party is in!

000a ukip-025 count.png

one wonders why whenever UKip come into the open you find that what they claim for themselves is deeply flawed – in 23 years of claiming to campaign to Leave-The-EU they have never had a single solitary consistent organised and professional campaign – they have however consistently failed to have the vaguest of responsible strategies for how to Leave-The-EU ethically within the framework of international treaty law ensuring Britain does no experience massive damage and huge debts.
I guess it is not all that surprising when one realises that virtually nothing they have ever said or done has been professional or for that matter honest!
Consider a few points from Twitter:

Jasna Badzak added,

  1. Greg_Lance-Watkins Retweeted Jasna Badzak

    is an embarrassing joke candidate for leader since there are no viable candidates!

    Greg_Lance-Watkins added,

That is just a quick selection of examples from the last 3 days!
For more facts regarding the new front runner Diane James CLICK HERE
For facts regarding any candidate of any significance use the >SEARCH< facility at the top of the right sidebar. Minded that Broughton, Etheridge and Jones are easily judged by the odds against them and the obviously lack of leadership skills and judgement they have displayed by squandering £5,000 on submitting their applications!
That UKip are willing to seek to profit by charging applicants £5,000 each to be considered leads one to wonder how come they haven’t followed Labour’s lead and charge members £25 to vote! Clearly if Aaron Banks quits as their financier the new leader will have been hyanded a poison chalice as there will be no money to run the party as UKip MEPs are notoriously tight fisted and apart from the seried ranks of crooks who have been sent to prison or ordered to pay back money they had perloined from the tax payers donations have been few and far between other than those who made much show of being donors when it came to funding their own elections to the gravy train!
Now consider the fact that it seems UKip have NEVER managed to organise an internal selection process and/or election that has not raised controversy mainly due to their utterly unprofessional behaviour and corruption – time and time again they have been proven to have lied or cheated!
We have the farcical and fancifull story peddled by UKip firstly that Nigel Farage gave up a highly successfull career in the City when in fact he was just a serial drunk and philanderer who had been fired for his misconduct and to this day (I believe he still owes the money) owes the tax man for his back taxes on his failed company.
We have protestations that he gave up a career where he would have earned far more to control UKip – I think not when he arrived with debts and a cloud over his City career yet today would seem to have assets valued variously at between £3 and £7Million!
We are told how he was a great devotee of Margaret Thatcher yet when one checks the record he voted Green prior to joining UKip!
We hear the myth he peddles that were ity not for him and for his fiefdom of UKip there would be no BreXit and have been no Referendum – this is an outright lie. Neither Nigel Farage nor his party did anything to achieve BreXit, as ever they didn’t even have a responsible strategy of how to Leave-The-EU or what to do to safeguard Britain’s future when we left! In fact Nigel Farage and his claque did almost everything they could to prevent the Referendum – Just as they had utterly failed to actively campaign to oppose the new EU Constitution which morphed into the Lisbon Treaty!
It is an absol;utely unarguable fact thaty the Referendum was the result of the efforts of Nikki Sinclaire and no one else, it was she who campaigned for a referendum and ity was she who put together a team, and largely funded that team, to collect paper signatures in a petition to force the Government to hold a debate on Britain’s future relationship with the EU – a petition that Nigel Farage and his cronies did all they could to sabotage to ensure tjhere was no debate.
Nikki Sinclaire won the day and obtained 1/4Million signatures forcing a debate in the House of Commons in whyich David Cameron’s Government faced its first and worst rebellion, it was that debate which forced Cameron to include the promise of an IN/OUT Referendum in the Tory Manifesto at the next election.
Nigel Farage & UKip did absolutely nothing to achieve BreXit – they even went so far as to split the organisation that was to campaign for OUT, together with their self serving and self aggrandising fundert Aaron Banks.
Now let us look briefly at the claim that Nigel Farage made that he waws resigning as leader of UKip.
Yet even now having said his resignation was immediate he is still seeking to control UKip to ensure his puppet is elected in his stead! It is Nigel Farage actively campaigning against the NEC he put in place and has controlled for so many years, it is he threatening an AGM to overturn their decisions and it is he openly supporting Steven Woolfe – despite Woolfe’s criminal behaviour as exposed in earlier elections. Despite Woolfe’s claims to be a Barrister, which he is not!

UKIP leadership: Steven Woolfe excluded from race

Steven Woolfe

UKIP leadership hopeful Steven Woolfe has been ruled “ineligible” to stand in the contest to replace Nigel Farage – after he submitted his papers late.

The party’s NEC said it had voted by a “clear majority” to exclude Mr Woolfe – previously seen as the frontrunner.

The MEP said he was “extremely disappointed” by the decision, and three NEC members have quit in protest.

Jonathan Arnott, Bill Etheridge, Diane James, Lisa Duffy, Phillip Broughton and Elizabeth Jones are on the ballot.

Speaking to the BBC, Mr Woolfe said he believed the NEC had “their own reasons” for excluding him from the ballot, but implied it could have been linked to the fact he was committed to abolishing the executive.

Asked if he would consider taking legal action, or calling a vote of no confidence in the NEC, Mr Woolfe said it was a matter for the party membership but he thought the contest should continue without him.

Announcing their resignations from the NEC, Victoria Ayling, Raymond Finch and Michael McGough said in a joint statement that the party’s governing body “is no longer fit for purpose” and called for a vote of no confidence in the NEC.

Media captionUKIP MEP Jonathan Arnott says Steven Woolfe will still have a “huge role” to play in the party’s future.

They accused it of “deliberately obstructing” Mr Woolfe and some of its members of putting personal ambitions ahead of the interests of the party – which polled more than four million votes at the last general election and got 12% of the vote.

“Steven Woolfe is a popular candidate among UKIP’s members and should be permitted to represent those that wish to vote for him,” they wrote.

“To purposefully trawl for technicalities upon which to base a decision to deny his inclusion is not in the best interests of the membership and truly injurious to UKIP.”

‘Clear rules’

The winner of the leadership contest – sparked by Mr Farage’s decision to stand down after the UK voted to leave the EU – is scheduled to be announced on 15 September.

In a statement announcing the final line-up, the party said: “By a clear majority of NEC members Steven Woolfe MEP’s application was considered to be ineligible as a result of a late submission and as such he did not meet the eligibility criteria.”

Mr Woolfe, the party’s immigration spokesman, submitted his nomination papers 17 minutes late on Sunday, blaming the delay on technical issues with the registration site.

Image captionNigel Farage announced he was stepping down after the UK voted to leave the EU

He submitted his application at 11:35 BST – before the noon deadline – but it did not successfully go through until 12:17 BST.

He said he had been in contact with party officials prior to the deadline passing to alert them to the problems, and had sent pictures, upon request, to prove it.

The party’s chairman, Paul Oakden, said Mr Woolfe’s exclusion was “regrettable” but the rules for prospective candidates, as for all elections, were “very clear”.

He told BBC Radio 4’s World at One that the NEC was put in the position of having “to bend and flex the rules” to accommodate a single candidate and “I think they did not feel comfortable in doing that”.

‘Life or death’

Mr Woolfe said he was “extremely disappointed” not to be on the final ballot as he had wanted to “inject my ideas, plans and passion into the party”.

And he criticised the NEC as “not fit for purpose” and said its conduct during the leadership election had “confirmed many member’s fears that it is neither effective nor professional in the way it governs the party”.

Media captionUKIP’s chairman said it was important for candidates to hit application deadlines.
Media captionMichael McGough has resigned from the UKIP’s ruling body over the leadership vote

“They have failed to accept that there were serious issues with the application system despite providing evidence that attempts of submission were made before the deadline. The NEC deny this is the fault of the UKIP system.

“Furthermore, highly confidential information about me held in party documents has been leaked to the press and the NEC has not sought to investigate this gross breach of privacy,” he added.

‘Life and death’

Mr McGough – who has resigned from the NEC – said Mr Woolfe’s exclusion from the contest was “unfair” and called into the question the party’s future.

Unless the party elected a “competent leader who was comfortable with the media, it was finished”, he told World at One. “This is a fight for survival. It is life or death.”

BBC political correspondent Tom Bateman said the NEC’s decision “opens up a whole new schism in UKIP” and he understood that Mr Farage could call an emergency meeting of the party membership to put pressure on the body to reconsider.

Image captionDiane James has confirmed she is standing after days of uncertainty

Mr Oakden, who only took over as party chairman this week, said the party was perfectly entitled to call an EGM if 25% of its branches backed the move but said talk of a potential split was over-exaggerated and the remaining contenders were a diverse and exciting group.

MEP Ms James – now regarded as the favourite in the contest – has launched her own campaign website while Mr Arnott, an MEP for the north east of England, has said he was won the backing of the party’s deputy leader Paul Nuttall.

Of the other candidates, Mr Etheridge is also a member of European Parliament while Lisa Duffy is a councillor in Cambridgeshire. Both Ms Jones and Mr Broughton have stood as candidates in recent parliamentary elections.

Steven Woolfe being investigated for electoral fraud over drink drive conviction

Ukip’s Steven Woolfe is being investigated for electoral fraud just days after he was expelled from the party’s leadership race.

Mr Woolfe, the party’s migration spokesman, is being investigated by Greater Manchester Police over claims he did not declare a conviction for drink driving when he stood for the role of Police and Crime Commissioner in 2012.

The force has received a complaint about Mr Woolfe’s 2002 conviction which would have barred him from standing for the role in 2012.


Mr Woolfe said he “forgot about the conviction” when he stood in the Greater Manchester PCC election in 2012.

Mr Woolfe had been tipped to become the frontrunner in Ukip’s leadership campaign after impressing since becoming an MEP for the North West in 2014 CLICK HERE

But the 48-year-old former lawyer missed the nomination deadline by 17 minutes.

He was barred from standing after he submitted his application to become a candidate after the official deadline and has faced claims that he had failed to keep up his membership.

Mr Woolfe said he “forgot about the conviction” when he stood in the Greater Manchester PCC election in 2012, in a possible breach of electoral law.

Supporters of Mr Woolfe, who stood for Parliament in Stockport last year but finished third, have reacted angrily.

@Arron_banks @Mr_Gossamer Looks like UKIP are going to lose a lot of supporters now. Time for a new party?


@Arron_banks genuinely upset that @UKIP have imploded on themselves just as REAL progress was being made and old reputations were going.


Mr Woolfe had indicated that he would focus Ukip on becoming a party for social mobility, in a direct targeting of Labour’s core voters, particularly in northern heartlands. 

“The one thing I can say to the people of the North and the Midlands who voted Brexit and who are tired of the Labour Party leaving them behind, Ukip is now the party for you and your new home,” Woolfe told IBT.

“We did it for immigration, we did it for the referendum and now we’re going to do it for social mobility too.”

Ukip has been riven by in-fighting as rival factions battle to secure control of the party.

Nigel Farage has attacked NEC members as “among the lowest grade of people I have ever met” and has long been at odds with Douglas Carswell, the party’s only MP, and Neil Hamilton, its leader in the Welsh Assembly.

Former deputy chairwoman Suzanne Evans, who was suspended from the party earlier this year after repeated clashes with Mr Farage, said Mr Woolfe is “probably ineligible”.

Mr Farage, who announced he was quitting after the Leave victory in the EU referendum, said Ukip members should vote for the candidate who will best represent the party “on the big media stages” and around the country.

He urged his successor to “bypass” the NEC, claiming the governing body contains “total amateurs” who have acted as a “barrier to radical change and modernisation”.

Comment | Steven Woolfe on his Ukip leadership expulsion

“I am extremely disappointed by the UKIP NEC decision to exclude me from the party’s leadership election.

“Having been a committed member of UKIP, standing for the party in multiple elections, acting as a spokesman at the highest level, I wanted to take this opportunity to stand for Leader to inject my ideas, plans and passion into the party.

“Over the course of this leadership election, the NEC has proven it is not fit for purpose and it confirmed many member’s fears that it is neither effective nor professional in the way it governs the party.

“The NEC panel have even accepted that they were wrong to raise questions of my membership of the party, as I have been a full member since 2011. They did not identify my payments in the UKIP records until I showed them my own bank statements. After providing evidence of the payments and donations I have made to the party, they were satisfied this was not an issue.

“They have failed to accept that there were serious issues with the application system despite providing evidence that attempts of submission were made before the deadline. The NEC deny this is the fault of the UKIP system.

“Furthermore, highly confidential information about me held in party documents has been leaked to the press and the NEC has not sought to investigate this gross breach of privacy.

“The NEC’s treatment of Nathan Gill over the past two weeks has also been totally unacceptable.

“Nathan is a decent and honest man, who has been in the party longer than many NEC members. He, as the leader of UKIP in Wales, led the party to victories for seven Welsh assembly members in May. His dedication to the party knows no bounds. Wales voted to leave the EU and it deserves a Eurosceptic voice in Brussels to represent the people, as the renegotiation moves ahead.

“If I were on the ballot, I would have fought to reform the internal structure of UKIP including the NEC. UKIP must professionalise and it cannot do that with an unfit NEC.

“Over the course of the past two weeks, my office and I have received thousands of messages of support from members.

“To every single one of them and all of those who have helped to support my campaign, I say a huge thank you.

“Although I am out of the contest I wish the other candidates well and hope they can show UKIP has a positive, inclusive, patriotic vision for Britain.”

Do note that Jonathan Arnott has absolutely no experience of leadership having been a maths teacher in a tiny private school with, as I recall 140 pupils of all ages, even as an MEP he has been all but invisible and undeniably irrelevant.
Jones & Broughton are both also rqans having no profile beyond having stood in elections and failed utterly.
Duffy has doner the rounds in the party but has only been noticeable for her spectacular failure during the time she was in charge of UKip Yoof!
Etheridge is best known for his racist behaviour and utterances regarding Gololiwogs, which saw him thrown out of the Tory Party, and having separated from his disabled wife as soon as he had squirmed his way in as a UKip MEP.
Diane James lays claim to having 30 years experience in Health Care but may be confusing herself with an American born woman of the same name!
As for Woolfe’s clai9m to be a Barrister – he may well have trained as one but I can find no record of any of his cases and he is most deffinitly not on the official list, which is open to public scrutiny, his criminal convicton may have something to do with his absence in the public record! Something else he may well have forgotten! As I recall when first he came to prominence in UKip he was a failed Compliance Officer in a Financial Services organisation – failed in that he had lost his job!
Situation normal UKip are in an utterly unprofessional, corrupt and dishonest squabbling mess!

Clean EUkip up NOW make UKIP electable! 


The corruption of EUkip’s leadership, 
their anti UKIP claque in POWER & the NEC 

is what gives the remaining 10% a bad name!  


Nigel Farage’s House Of Cards From The Inside is just another analysis of Ukip’s crass ineptitude & dishonesty


you will have noted by now that The Times is featuring Ukip and sadly; based on information from their contacts, which has by-passed Ukip’s weak yet aggresive press office with its grossly over paid ineptitude; The Times has found its way to much of the truth.
The Times is doing to Ukip what it does to the two main parties which is calling them to account and exposing their inadequacies and internal squabbles, incompetencies and corruptions – Ukip is learning the truth of my oft made warning ‘the higher up the tree the monkey climbs the more you see its @rse’.
Naturally Ukip is likely to fall back on the lame excuses that were so often used by their associates in the BNP ‘they’re picking on us because we are being so effective and threatening the establishment’!
This is palpable rubbish, what is happening is Ukip is experiencing the true scrutiny briefly, which front line politics constantly experiences.
I believe this exposure will probably culminate in either a major revalation either on Saturday or Sunday and then it is just a matter of whether Ukip is considered of adequate consequence to be kept in the public eye, where scrutiny will continue, just as it is experienced by the Tories and Labour or they slide into the obscurity they have earned having peaked.
It seems likely that Ukip will have to fall back on the shoddy journalism and desperate scribblings of the milti millionaire publisher Richard Desmond who cut his publishing teeth in the trash end of the magazine trade with publications that pandered to gossip and populist light weight like OK and New!
He then moved into adult TV (a EUphemism for soft porn) with Television X and Red Hot TV – moving on to such inglorious titles as The Daily Star and The Express – the latter being Ukip’s comic of choice with its corrupt standards of journalism and unrelenting yet undeclared bias!
With The Express Ukip has found itself with a partnership in light weight publicity and low grade press to match its standards and its hugely over salaried and over blown press office.
To quote their ever intellectual EU Press Officer Herman Kelly’s recent erudity ‘when you sleep with dogs you wake with fleas’ unoriginal I know but a measure of the competence and style of Ukip’s bullying and corrupt press office – a team who can best be judged by the paucity of publicity Ukip recieves, or ever has received over the years, which is of consequence or gravitas in publications of repute and stature.
For now just consider the facts proffered by The Times, all be it hidden behind their paywall, sometyhing of a saving grace for Ukip as few of their followers will thus learn the truth!

Nigel Farage is trying to create a professional party from a ragtag group more accustomed to setting the world to rights over pints of real ale

As the sun rose over Clacton in the hours after Ukip secured its first elected MP, Nigel Farage predicted that his Eurosceptic party could hold the balance of power at the next election.

Before setting its sights on May, Ukip is grappling with a more mundane challenge.

Mr Farage is trying to create a professional party from a ragtag group of veteran members more accustomed to setting the world to rights over pints of real ale than the strict discipline of modern politics.

Last May, Ukip moved into a new Mayfair office, formerly the home of Boris Johnson’s mayoralty campaign team, after it was offered rent-free by Andrew Reid, a solicitor.

Three months later, amid concerns that staff were running amok, Lisa Duffy, Ukip’s director, was sent in to sort things out.

In a confidential report presented to Ukip’s governing committee, Ms Duffy wrote that she had gone to the offices on party business “only to be embarrassed about the lack of cleanliness, silliness and lack of organisation and lack of people in offices”.

Describing how she had spent the first few days setting the office up in a “professional manner”, Ms Duffy said she had moved desks and organised a holiday rota which “identified that the following week we would have had no press officers if I hadn’t actioned this”.

She also removed “unprofessional” material from walls and hand written signs.

A former office worker said these included a “c*** of the week” award which was given to “whichever journalist had been the most critical that week”.

A hand-drawn picture of Mr Farage surrounded by hearts was pinned on the wall, alongside an “I love egg mayonnaise sandwiches” sign posted by Alexandra Phillips, a press officer.

Ms Duffy’s intervention in Ukip’s London offices came a few days after another attempt to professionalise the party had ended in disaster.

Will Gilpin, a former RAF pilot, began work in the £72,000-a-year post of chief executive in December 2012 but was sacked in August 2013.

He wrote to one member of the executive: “I’m afraid I came to the role in the belief it was actually a chief executive they were after, rather than chairman’s assistant.”

“In response to me saying I’m unhappy with how things are going I have been sacked. It’s a shame I wasn’t able to bring in the much needed modernizations, but it’s up to the leadership of course.”

The national executive committee (NEC) also had disputes over another key appointment, leaked emails reveal.

In May last year, Tim Aker, a political campaigner and former researcher, was put forward for the £62,000 post of head of policy.

William Dartmouth, a Ukip MEP, wrote to members of the NEC complaining that Mr Aker was being offered as the sole candidate and that he had been “directly concerned and therefore partly responsible for the embarrassment of the 2010 Ukip general election manifesto”.

Mr Farage, who backed Mr Aker, has previously disowned the 2010 manifesto as “drivel” and claimed he had never read it.

Mr Dartmouth said the manifesto was “electorally toxic” and that Mr Aker’s involvement with it should be a “total disqualification”.

Andrew Moncreiff, a member of Ukip’s executive committee, wrotethat Mr Aker was “harmless enough but thoroughly lightweight and has done virtually nothing for the party”.

Mr Aker did not reply to a request for comment.
