UKIP’s Ashford Scam Made Someone Around £350K Minimum NOT UKIP! Nigel Farage clearly claimed that Ashford made over £400K yet in response to Richard Suchorzewski Farage’s chosen Chairman David Bannerman confirmed less than 15% ever reached UKIP!

Well may the liar and scoundrel John Moran hang his head in shame and decline to comment!

Call centre ‘hounded’ members

Ukip’s call centre, set up in 2003 in a former bookmaker’s office near Ashford station in Kent, has been described by Nigel Farage as the “single most successful thing Ukip has ever done”.
It was designed to raise funds and bolster the party’s support, and Mr Farage has said it raised at least £400,000 and doubled Ukip’s membership.
Staff worked from the phone numbers of people who had contacted local Ukip offices, canvassing supporters and soliciting donations. However, it was the source of controversy over its “aggressive telephone manner” and high running costs.
“It caused all sorts of rows on the national executive,” Martin Haslam, a former Ukip branch treasurer, said.
Officials complained that the staff — telesales professionals who had no allegiance to the party and were paid by commission — hounded members with requests to stump up more and more cash.
Ian Gillman, a former member of Ukip’s national executive committee, said concerns about the centre’s “aggressive telephone tactics in raising money” had been raised by the committee. “There was this constant call for money, we would constantly get letters from Farage and the leadership. I was asking where was the money going. We couldn’t get any straight answers.”
Tony Ellwood, a former regional organiser who became a researcher to Derek Clark, MEP, said: “They were so assertive with the membership that many members actually resigned.”
He said they also told members that their money would end up with their local regional branch but claimed that this did not happen.
In 2005 the party’s internal magazine carried an article acknowledging that “when the Ashford call centre first opened, it is fair to say it was the centre of some controversy within Ukip”.
The centre was closed after three years when Douglas Campbell-Bannerman, then the party’s deputy leader, found that high running costs meant that only 15 per cent of donated funds were paid over.
He said he felt that it “was bleeding the party dry”.

Hi,
one has to wonder if some authors, be that media or book authors do any research or whether they just write the propaganda as it is fed to them!

Senior Ukip members ‘backed pact with BNP’

Proposal was canvassed among party’s National Executive Committee in 2008 according to a new book

A new book has revealed that Ukip considered forming a pact with the BNP six years ago, with two members of the party’s national executive committee at the time in favour of the idea.In 2008 Nigel Farage acknowledged that the BNP had proposed a deal for the European elections the following year, but insisted it had been unanimously rejected. Farage told reporters then: “I’m simply amazed that the BNP thought we would even consider such a thing.”

Now the new book, Revolt on the Right, by Dr Matthew Goodwin and Dr Robert Ford – called the most definitive account yet of the Ukip movement – reveals that the BNP’s proposal was canvassed among 17 members of the party’s NEC. Two members supported the proposal, it has emerged.

Farage, who said he had been against a pact, told the authors: “There were a lot of people saying to me at that time, ‘You’ve got to do a deal with them.’ I even had Tory MEPs saying to me, ‘Nigel, you’ve got to do a deal with these people.’ We were being beaten by them regularly in local elections. So there was huge pressure on me. The nature of the deal was the BNP would stand in some regions in the European elections in the north, and Ukip would stand in the south, and that would be the electoral pact: we wouldn’t oppose each other.”

Of the members who offered support for the pact, Farage said: “They were the angry old men of old Ukip who thought Ukip was doomed.”

The political predicament of Ukip in 2008 contrasts with its potential today, the authors say. In the book, published this week, they say the party has emerged from the crash with the potential to attract a third of the electorate.

Around 30% of voters are now believed to be both Eurosceptic and opposed to immigration, or Eurosceptic and politically dissatisfied, the defining themes for Ukip. Such sentiments are continuing to grow in strength among the electorate, according to the authors, who draw on the biggest pool of data so far amassed on the political movement.

The book provides evidence that the share of voters holding Eurosceptic views and at least one other radical right belief has increased by five to seven percentage points since 2008. Ukip is widely seen as not having a credible manifesto and has faced serious questions about the calibre of its MEPs, the authors note.

This weekend, the party was dogged by claims that it had misused EU funds in paying staff working in the UK. Yet Goodwin, from Nottingham University, and Ford, of Manchester University, say the “army of potential supporters for Ukip is growing in size” and is being aided by continued anger at Labour’s record and disaffection with the Tory leader.

They argue that Farage and Ukip face huge challenges in the first-past-the-post electoral system, and given the party’s continued unpopularity among women, ethnic minorities, graduates and the young. However, Ukip is now the favoured electoral option among those who strongly disapprove of the EU – 20% of all British voters.

Over the past three years, the party has also performed better than Labour among older, working-class voters and those who are struggling financially. The party is using tactics similar to those once successfully deployed by the Lib Dems, the authors say, in that they seek to deepen their vote in particular areas by getting into local councils and building strongholds.

It is claimed that, of the five constituencies where Ukip stands its best chance of general election success, four are Labour seats (Great Grimsby, Plymouth Moor View, Ashfield and Walsall North) and one is Tory (Waveney). The consistent feature in these areas is a splintering of the traditional vote and the existence of a large, older, blue-collar demographic.

The book suggests that the potential for Ukip’s rise can be clearly seen in societal changes that developed decades ago. The authors write: “Its seeds lay among groups of voters who struggled with the destabilising and threatening changes brought by deindustrialisation, globalisation and, later, European integration and mass immigration.”

The academics claim Farage is fusing three issues to make a coherent message: “Farage’s party now encourages voters to say ‘no’ three times: no to the Eurocrats in Brussels and Strasbourg; no to the politicians in Westminster; and no to immigration. This is not a grand ideological vision – there is no ‘Farageism’ – but it is a coherent and highly effective message.”

They add: “Ukip is not a second home for disgruntled Tories in the shires; it is a first home for disaffected working-class Britons of all political backgrounds who have lost faith in a political system that ceased to represent them long ago.”

On publication of the book Revolt on the Right I read it but found it was tedious and pretentious in the extreme and the reporting of this story in the article above was just as inaccurate as shown! The story put forward regarding the claim that an official approach from the BNP was made and was supported by two members of UKIP’s NEC is utter hogwash.
At the time I wrote numerous factually based and sourced articles regarding this even which I showed to be nothing more than Nigel Farage’s ‘Reichstag Fire’ event giving him an excuse for his own ‘Crystalnacht’.
Never have those who Farage and his clique identified who actually proposed a link with the BNP backed by a single fact.
Was it in fact Nigel Farage?
FARAGE, Nigel 37 DEAVIN, Mark - LeCOMBER, TonyThis photo shows Nigel Farage, Mark Deavin (who sat with UKIP NEC) and Tony LeComber (National Front & subsequently BNP Lecomber was convicted for criminal damage in 1982, offences under the Explosives Act in 1985, and was sentenced to three years’ imprisonment in 1991 for an attack on a Jewish teacher.)
It is widely believed that the photograph was taken after a lunch between the three in which the possibility of Nigel Farage joining the BNP with a view to leading the party as at the time Farage was not a member of UKIP having fallen out with his colleagues!
The NEC meeting referred to in the article, and in the rather sloppy book, was attended by arrangement, as a guest of Martin Hasslam, an attendee at the NEC at the behest of Nigel Farage, agreed to by Nigel Farage, by Buster Mottram, a Farage family friend who I understand was living with a relation of Nigel Farage’s and let us not forget that Nigel Farage, against widespread advice, enrolled and welcomed Buster Mottram as a favoured member of UKIP and as something of a personality and spokesman.
Buster Mottram presented a scenario of association with the BNP claiming he had the approval of the BNP leadership!
I am reliably advised that NO ONE elected to UKIP NEC was in favour of the suggested scenario, interestingly by dint of lies and inuendo, rumours and spin it was claimed by the ‘Farage faction’, a view promoted via certain liars amongst UKIP’s press staff, that two members of the elected NEC supported the suggestion – this was and is a lie.

The claimed, by inuendo, supporters were Dr. David Abbott and Dr. Eric Edmond, both of whom have sought clarification of the implied slur and have promised to sue Farage and any member of his odious clique who claims they have supported the BNP in this context. It is interesting to note that both Abbott & Edmond had actively campaigned for transparency in UKIP’s use and abuse of both tax payers’ money and that of UKIP donors – particularly in respect of the apparent scam of The Ashford Call Center and its ramifications where another elected member of the UKIP NEC Richard Suchozevski had proved that less than 15% of the money raised by ‘Ashford’ ever reached the Party!
Interestingly not only were Drs. Abbott and Edmond forced off of UKIP NEC by Farage’s cult but so also was Richard Suchorzewski, a position that was inevitable once he had, in campaigning for clarity and probity, asked 30 questions regarding UKIP accounts and use of donors’ and tax payers’ money, questions that Andrew Smith, treasurer at the time, was seemingly unable to answer and quit his position thereby avoiding the question leaving UKIP accounts in total disaray  – seemingly with possibly £Millions unaccounted for.
I must apologise for not having posted this article when it was first published, but at the time I felt it was so shoddy, inaccurate and unchecked as to be irrelevant, as with the book quoted! I find that a subsequent article elsewhere made it relevant and therefore added the article with this comment on 10-May-2014.

‘WE DEMAND A REFERENDUM’ – Inaugural Conference!
THIS FRIDAY!

at: The Westminster Hall!

Info: from CLICK HERE & ALSO HERE

.

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

We Demand A Referendum is pleased to announce its inaugural conference at Central Hall Westminster.

 
(Central Hall, Westminster, Storey’s Gate, London, SW1H 9NH)
 
 
 
The conference will be held on Friday 5th October from 10.30am – 3.30pm
 
Speakers on the day will include the following –
 
Nikki Sinclaire MEP
 
 
Katie Hopkins
 
 
 
George Hargreaves
 
 
Roger Knapman
 
 
 
+ A Guest Speaker
 
Places for this event are limited and we urge anybody who wishes to attend to book by calling the office on
 
0121 359 5933
 
For further information on this event please do not hestitate to contact the team on the above number, or email on info@letthepeopledecide.eu
 
 
Further meetings across the country will be held and announced in due course.

.
Let us hope that they have booked the right sized rooms (a very difficult guess!) as they vary in size between over 2,000 and around 30 as I recall – personally I believe anything over 100 attending will be a success, as the organisation has been at relatively short notice and clearly the main parties are frightened of seeing their control to rig a referendum being challenged and are likely to try to sabotage the effort!

Even little UKIP who have shown that they are resoundingly rejected in domestic politics and only seem to have a following in EU protest antics, have been pulling out all the stops to try to sabotage the initiative!

There may be more in attendance than I expect, even The EU can be expected tobe sending spies and delegates to try to undermine this initiative!

Just think howmany €Millions,  of our money as tax payers, and howmany 1,000s of bribes were handed out by EU staffers and those living on EU bribes to try to get votes that The EU wanted in Ireland – against the wishes of the people of Ireland who were resoundingly betrayed by their own self seeking politicians!

Consider how regularly the British people have been lied to by their own politicians – Cameron, Heath, Rippon, Clegg, Farage, Clark and all in between, just to keep their snouts in the troughs on the EU Gravy Train.

Good luck to Team Sinclaire and I look forward to hearing all about the speakers and hope it will be videoed for those of us who can’t get there.

Regards,

Greg_L-W..

Hi,
yet again Nikki Sinclaire‘s team make a huge effort to support the cause of Leave-The-EUAnother huge and impressive first for Team Sinclaire where the first huge ‘RESULT’ was presenting a petition of well over 100,000 signatures and a supporting poll delivered to Downing Street and registered at Parliament forcing Parliament to have a full blown debate on Britain’s relationship and the majority view that we will be ‘Better-Off-Out‘.That was a year ago and then a new petition was delivered on Thursday this week with another 100,000 signatures demanding an IN / OUT Referendum under the slogan ‘LET THE PEOPLE DECIDE‘.This latest petition was written up as an article in The Sun last Sunday and in The Express on Monday and also covered in The Sun editorial. Also covered in other media. (The articles can be viewed and read in previous blogs on this site).

This petition is once again given gravitas and supported by a poll showing 56% of the electorate want an IN / OUT Referendum and 71% do NOT trust their own politicians on issues relative to the EU.
Now today we note the new announcement in The Sun and trailed yesterday based upon a leak on my Twitter!

EU vote party takes on Cameron

Referendum … or they fight ALL Euro seats

EXCLUSIVE
By DAVID WOODING, Associate Political Editor
Published: 1 hr ago
Katie Hopkins
 Candidate … Katie Hopkins from The Apprentice
 
CAMPAIGNERS fighting for a referendum over Britain’s EU membership have formed a party to take on the Tories.

Candidates have been lined up to stand in the European elections unless PM David Cameron offers a straight in-or-out vote.

TV’s Apprentice contestant Katie Hopkins is among those who will fight all 73 UK seats for the single-issue “We Demand A Referendum Party”.

It is a major headache for the PM — as a poll showed it could win enough popular support to wipe out the Tories.

It has been set up by the campaign which last week handed a 100,000-name petition to Number 10. A third of adults said they would vote for it in the 2014 Euro elections, according to a YouGov poll. That would make it the largest British group in the parliament.

It is seen as the rebirth of Sir James Goldsmith’s Referendum Party, which cost the Tories dear in the 1997 General Election. It is even using Sir James’s slogan for its ballot paper listing: “Let the people decide.”

Mrs Hopkins said: “Our Government is frightened of asking the question about whether we want to be in or out of Europe because they’re frightened that they’ll not like the answer.”

– EX-Chancellor Lord Lamont dealt a blow to the PM as he said the Tories were more popular after Black Wednesday 20 years ago — when the UK left the European Exchange Rate Mechanism — than today.

to view the original article CLICK HERETo view more details on this issue view my preceding blogs and also:To quote The Sun’s columnist Toby Young:

 Jose Manuel Barroso, the unelected leader of the EC, announced to a stunned European Parliament on Wednesday that he would bring forward plans for a fiscal, economic and political union before the next European elections.

That means changes to the European Union’s treaties could be set in motion at any point after June 8, 2014, something that would automatically trigger a vote in the United Kingdom as a result of the “referendum lock” in the 2011 EU Act.

It’s no secret that David Cameron is hoping to put off a referendum until after our next General Election, not least because it would rupture the Coalition and divide his own party. But following Barroso’s speech he probably won’t have a choice. For Eurosceptics like me, this is fantastic news.

I’ve long held the view that the sooner we have a referendum on our continuing membership of the EU, the better.

MEP NIKKI SINCLAIRE FOUNDS NEW POLITICAL MOVEMENT

 
Leading Activisys of New Movement
 
 
A NEW A new political movement has been launched to allow British people the opportunity to demand a referendum at the European Elections in 2014.
It comes in the wake of a YouGov opinion poll that shows a third of UK adults said they would ignore party loyalty to vote for an entity whose sole manifesto was to urge for a straight forward In-Out referendum.
The movement has been registered with the Electoral Commission as “We Demand a Referendum” and will carry the slogan imbedded in the emblem from Jimmy Goldsmith’s Referendum Party of “Let the People Decide”.
“We Demand a Referendum” has been set up by the Campaign for a Referendum team that delivered two petitions totalling more than 220,000 signatures to Downing Street and also forced a parliamentary debate last year that led to a huge Tory rebellion.
It is a single-issue political body that challenges David Cameron to call an In-Out referendum by 2014.
A YouGov poll last week showed that 65% of Tory voters want a referendum – much more than the average of 56% from all voters.
“We Demand a Referendum” will be fielding candidates in every region of the country and could take between eight and 22 seats in the European Elections, according to the YouGov poll commissioned by the body’s chairman – West Midlands MEP Nikki Sinclaire.
 
Katie Hopkins and Nikki Sinclaire MEP
One of those candidates will be former Apprentice star Katie Hopkins who will be the lead candidate in the South West. Katie will need only 10% of the vote to be elected under the system used in the election.
All candidates will share a single aim – to force a decisive referendum on the issue of Europe by sending a strong message to the government ahead of the General Election in 2015.
“The Politicians have failed the people on the EU,” said Nikki Sinclaire.
 

“Promise after promise has been broken by all parties and it is time for the people to empower themselves and demand a referendum!

“Why are they so afraid of the people? Why won’t they let us decide? And why do they continue to patronise us with their ‘we know better’ attitude?”
 
TV personality and businesswoman Katie Hopkins added: “Sometimes tough questions have to be asked.
 
“I often hear people say ‘I didn’t ask because I was frightened I might not like the answer’ and I think this is true for the referendum on Europe.
 
“I believe that our government is frightened of asking the question about whether we want to be in or out of Europe, because they are frightened that they will not like the answer.”
 
Katie added: “The importance of forcing an EU referendum is far bigger than any party. We strive to go beyond party politics and, as our campaign slogan says, we want to Let the People Decide!”

We Demand a Referendum will hold its inaugural conference at Westminster Central Hall in London on Friday October 5.

 YOUGOV POLL:

Candidates from the Conservatives, Labour, Liberal Democrats, UK Independence Party and other parties will be standing in the 2014 European Elections. However, suppose a new political entity was set up for these elections and their only policy was to demand a referendum on the UK’s membership of the European Union.
How likely, if at all, would it be that you support this new, single issue entity in the 2014 European Elections only?
 
I would definitely vote for that option 16 16 14 13 23 14 12 18 14 11 8 17 24 15 18 6 19 18 16 15

I have commented:
 

Hi,

please can you supply a URL for the YouGov Poll with all its details – thanks.

Congratulations to you and your team for your latest petition and poll and for this new launch of your group as a mono issue party seeking votes on the primal issue of democracy and a demand for an IN / OUT referendum relative to EU membership which underpins every aspect of our lives and costs each of us £6,000 a year and a direct cost of £35,000 a minute every minute of the year!

Time to enforce The UN fundamental Human Right of ‘Self Determination’ and vote to Leave-The-EU.

Welcome to Katie Hopkins, George Hargreaves (Christian Party?), Martin Harvey (who used to pay Marta Andreasen’s salary for UKIP, until he was abused by Farage & saw through the cherade and Marta Andreasen’s lies, dishonesty & corruption no doubt!).

AND of course well done to the rest of Team Sinclaire incl. Josh O’Nions the campaign manager from the start.

Regards,
Greg_L-W.

YOU can support the new organisation by promoting this web site so that others can get the details and also you can sign the petition at:
