Hi,

it seems Farage’s inability to cope with details, racism and factual inexactitude follows him wherever he goes. As the article below shows!

In reality The BreXit Party is yet again a Farage Cult, with many of the same followers however in view of the lies and betrayal that have been emmanating from Parliament many people, like myself, will find that subsequent to Parliament’s betrayal of the electorate, its own promises and the manifestly self serving behaviour of the proven majority in the House of Commons – we are left with no choice, at the moment, but to hold our noses and inspite of Nigel Farage and some of his cult followers we shall vote for the BreXit Party, on matters pertaining to the EU.

Brexit Party figures who left over offensive posts are still directors

Two senior members of Nigel Farage’s Brexit party who left their roles after the Guardian uncovered offensive social media messages they had sent are still directors of the organisation weeks after they had supposedly cut all ties, it has emerged.

Catherine Blaiklock, the first leader of the party, who resigned over a series of anti-Islam messages, and the former treasurer Michael McGough, who was ousted because of antisemitic and other offensive Facebook posts, are still listed as directors.

Blaiklock, who also retweeted far-right messages, including one from a former British National party activist referring to “white genocide”, also resigned as company secretary of the party soon after the posts emerged, six weeks ago. But despite that change being made to the Companies House register, she remains listed as a director.

McGough is also still a director. He was removed as treasurer a month ago after posting what the party called “unacceptable statements”. A party statement at the time said he would no longer have any role in the organisation.

The only other two directors are Farage and the new treasurer, Phillip Basey, a former Ukip activist.

In some messages, McGough referred to Ed and David Miliband and Peter Mandelson as having “shallow UK roots” or being “devoid of UK roots” – seen as a common antisemitic trope about Jewish people.

One post from 2017 called David Miliband the “son of an east European communist now milking it from a charity in New York and devoid of UK roots”.

Another message said: “The Miliband dudes and Mandelson have the shortest of roots. Transient folk they have no loyalty to the UK.” One reply by another user tells McGough he is on “slightly dangerous ground”. McGough replies: “True, but there is a valid point to be made even if it seems offensive. It is not dissimilar to Lord Tebbit’s cricket test.”

A post about Mandelson reads: “I resent being called racist by an old queen with shallow UK roots.”

Blaiklock sent offensive tweets that she later deleted, including one saying: “Islam = submission – mostly to raping men it seems.”

She also retweeted seven messages from the far-right activist Tommy Robinson, whose real name is Stephen Yaxley-Lennon. Farage left Ukip after its current leader, Gerard Batten, made Robinson an adviser.

Other tweets sent by Blaiklock included one that referred to Islam as “a non-democracy ideology that is incompatible with liberal democracy”. Another said of Islam that it was “perfectly rational to be phobic about people who want to kill you”.

Both Blaiklock and McGough were longtime former Ukip members, and moved to the Brexit party with Farage. Their departures marked a tricky launch for the party, which has since rebounded spectacularly, and is leading in the polls for the European elections.

The Brexit party was approached for comment but did not respond.

Hi,

do be minded that Nigel Farage & Mick McGough have worked closely together for almost 20 years, even in the early 2000s the overt bully & racist McGough was heavily involved as a book keeper for Farage & also acting as one of Farage’s bully boys with no gutter he was not prepared to wallow in to aid his idol – all be it for his own gain in terms of expenses, opportunities & salary!

Drinking buddies of many years standing!

McGOUGH, Michael 05

Brexit party official removed after antisemitic posts

Nigel Farage’s party says treasurer no longer has role after making ‘unacceptable statements’

A senior official from Nigel Farage’s pro-Brexit party has been removed after the Guardian uncovered antisemitic and other offensive Facebook posts he made, two weeks after the party leader quit her role for similar reasons.

The party said Michael McGough, its treasurer, had made “unacceptable statements” and would no longer have any role in the organisation.

In some messages, McGough refers to Ed and David Miliband and Peter Mandelson as having “shallow UK roots” or being “devoid of UK roots” – seen as a common antisemitic trope about Jewish people.

A Facebook post saw McGough refer to a foreigner as “someone from a bingo bongo land”. In another, he said many survivors of the Grenfell Tower fire were “illegal aliens enjoying an amnesty”.

On 20 March the original leader, Catherine Blaiklock, resigned after the Guardian asked her about a series of deleted anti-Islam Twitter messages, in which she repeatedly retweeted far-right figures as well as sending her own offensive updates.

The Electoral Commission now lists Farage as the party leader. The departure of McGough means that two of the three Brexit party officers originally listed by the commission have now left.

McGough was previously a longstanding Ukip member. He was on the party’s national executive and stood for election as an MP three times in the Essex constituency of Brentwood and Ongar. Like Farage and Blaiklock he left the party over its anti-Islam stance under its current leader.

Despite this, one of McGough’s Facebook posts, from March 2017, refers obliquely to Islam potentially being a “fifth column” in the UK. “Perhaps a packet of bacon would act like garlic to a vampire but I doubt it,” he wrote. “If we had sharia law then surely most of the terrorist retards would be limbless as they all seem to have past criminal records for theft and violence.”

A string of posts from the same year use seemingly antisemitic insults against the Milibands and Mandelson. One calls David Miliband “son of an east European communist now milking it from a charity in New York and devoid of UK roots”.

Another message says: “The Miliband dudes and Mandelson have the shortest of roots. Transient folk they have no loyalty to the UK.” One reply by another user tells McGough he is on “slightly dangerous ground”. McGough replies: “True, but there is a valid point to be made even if it seems offensive. It is not dissimilar to Lord Tebbit’s cricket test.”

A post about Mandelson reads: “I resent being called racist by an old queen with shallow UK roots.”

McGough also posted a string of homophobic comments in the autumn of 2017, when there were two LGBT candidates vying for the then vacant Ukip leadership.

“I don’t want a skirtlifter for leader,” he wrote in one. A post a month earlier said: “With Queers Week on the BBC we are being bombarded with material to undermine our sexuality and procreation. I doubt the immigrant birth rates will be affected.” Another referred to a transgender politician who had been on BBC radio: “My, what a deep voice and what a lousy state broadcaster.”

The Brexit party statement said: “The Brexit party is saddened by the unacceptable statements made by Mr McGough. Taken together they mean that he cannot hold a position in the Brexit party.”

Marie van der Zyl, president of the Board of Deputies of British Jews, said the party “did the right thing” in parting company with McGough and Blaiklock. “The new party will need to institute rigorous anti-racist procedures and policies to ensure this doesn’t keep happening,” she said.

Ian Murray, a Labour MP who backs the People’s Vote campaign, said Farage’s new party seemed to be “vectors for nasty, vicious and ugly politics”.

He said: “The worst argument against a People’s Vote or the European elections has always been that they would encourage the far right. We should be fighting, not hiding from, the far right and their friends like Farage at every single opportunity.”

Hi,

so finally Nigel Farage is more than somewhat ‘Benighted’ the Teflon coating that has protected Nigel Farage is reaching its end of life and his exploitation of the mental illness of a vulnerable member of his staff Annabelle Fuller has delivered his comeuppance. Few if any of those involved with Ukip were unaware of what soiled and damaged goods the sad little figure was.

Whether it was her complaining to Piers Merchant how the stapler under her on the desk during one of her interludes with Farage had bruised her and pulling her skirt up to show him the intimately placed bruise, or describing a Regional chairman or some such as nothing more than ‘a w**k stain’ on Anthony Butcher’s scurrilous Ukip controlled public Forum.

To round it off, as I was well established at the time as an accurate and honest commentator on matters pertaining to Ukip including her vile behaviour with clear intimations regarding her various positions with Nigel Farage paid for on the Ukip pay roll – she displayed her true character on another public forum by announcing she hoped the cancer I was known to be fighting would kill me soon.

She really is a wretch specimen of humanity without scruples, ethics, integrity or morals. A skim read of her relationship with Farage, for who would want the details, shows the pair of them in their true light.

One has to feel sorry for any decent individual whose path has crossed this toxic inadequate’s path, though it is hard to drum up any sympathy for Annabelle Fuller whatever aliases she uses for her hedonistic self promotion and attention seeking.

For attention seeking that she claimed Nikki Sinclaire was in some way responsible for ruining her life and try to blame her for her own self harming as a way to get attention was more than a bit rich minded that Nikki Sinclaire had merely exposed the well known fact that Nigel Farage was in a long term relationship with his mistress at the tax payers expense whilst funding ‘payoff’ to his wife of some £30,000 a year from the same source.

Then again one notes Fuller’s on off relationship with Jasna Badzak at one time using her as both a confidante and an advisor and in the next breath seeking to blacken her name.

Likewise the foolish behaviour of The Tory MP Andrew Bridged who she claimed had sexually assaulted her when it became clear she had fled his flat having stolen his House of Commons Pass, Parliamentary correspondence and his Blackberry bearing numerous confidential phone details of very senior individuals + messages! She was aprehended by the concierge of the block of flats when she had fallen and bruised her head, noticeably drunk and allegedly without shoes – the assault claims were seemingly dreamed up in her attention seeking mind whilst waiting for the police to arrive – claims that vanished with the light of day (truth) – sadly having dishonestly befouled his reputation in a situation which contributed to his wife’s accrimonious parting of their ways and difficulties over access to his children.

Then of course there was her tissue of lies regarding the story she conspired to publish belittling John West in the media with an utterly implausible cock and bull story about having her laptop stolen having left it in a taxi – yet she filed the story whilst in Morrocco whilst on holiday! To read more of this story CLICK HERE

Then of course there was her corruption of the leadership election to get her paymaster back into power to ensure her income stream, when on tax payers money she was being paid to se4rrvice Farage’s non domestic needs she travelled to various hustings with Farage and ‘worked’ the ladies toilets to badmouth and defame the other candidates claiming for instance that Richard Suchorzevski was a BNP supporter, a bankrupt and homoosexual – a more than somewhat fancifull pack of lies when you consider he was self financed, took a year off work to strengthen Ukip in Wales including firing that useless article Jim Carver and touring Britain to campaign in the leadership election with John Bufton as his campaign manager, meanwhile he was in a relationship with a nursing sister at a leading London hospital and she was West Indian – BNP, homosexual and bankrupt! I think not, but it was the sort of lies that Fuller was prone to peddling – just as were Mark Croucher, David Bannerman, Mick McGough, Denny, and so many of the liars and low lifes at the top of Ukip!

I do believe that for justice to be seen to be done we shall have to relly on Suchorzewski, Sinclaire, West, Bridgen or the like to take legal action against Annabelle Fuller and Farage not only for their defamation but perhaps the EU will see fit to take back the tax payers’ money that Nigel Farage perloined to pay his wife and various mistresses – surely the tax payer can not be expected to pay for the MEPs’ to have sex on the public purse nor provide offices in which to excercise their sexual pecadilloes.

Little wonder the public at large voted for BreXit in disgust at the profligacy & louche behaviour of the EU & its staff be they Commissioners, MEPs, Unelected bloated bureacrats or the parasites who act as riders on the Gravy Train providing sexual favours!

But now clearly the worm has turned, whether merely for money or in spite at being passed over by Farage’s current mistress Ms. Farrari enjoying the perks of her efforts over the last few years now Farage has parted company with his wife and has the £5M property in Chelsea and travel in and out of NSA, CIA, FBI juristiction until they feel there is no more information they can glean by following him in the company of bigger and more valuable fish, then he will no longer be of use as bait but will be thrown to the wolves in his own right!

Farage may well find that ‘Thorn In The Side’ is not as Limited as he may think, when it comes to protection!

Farage’s mistress breaks her silence: Political aide reveals sexual encounters in MEP offices in the European Parliament only last year and how he told her to keep quiet or risk derailing Brexit

  • Annabelle Fuller says she and Farage had a sexual relationship dating from 2004
  • She was a speechwriter and trusted aide who worked for Farage in Brussels 
  • Fuller claims she had sexual encounters European Parliament offices last year
  • She says the affair drove her into depression, self-harm and suicide attempts

Nigel Farage has systematically lied about an affair with a vulnerable former aide spanning more than a decade, The Mail on Sunday can reveal.

The former Ukip leader is accused of breathtaking hypocrisy by his former lover, who claims she was told to keep the relationship secret at all costs – to help save Brexit.

In an explosive interview, Annabelle Fuller, once a speechwriter and trusted adviser to the party and its leader, says she and Farage, a married man more than 17 years her senior, had a sexual relationship dating from 2004 until October last year.

Farage, a Member of the European Parliament, has himself spoken of the ‘betrayal’ of family values in British society. In a series of devastating admissions about their time together, Ms Fuller discloses:

  • Sexual encounters in MEP offices in the European Parliament as recently as last year
  • A secret love letter in which Farage declares his devotion to her with ‘heart and body
  • That the affair helped propel her into depression, self-harm and suicide attempts
  • That Farage’s wife Kirsten – now estranged – was behind Ms Fuller’s dramatic ejection from a Ukip celebration party in 2014.

Ms Fuller’s decision to speak out is all the more remarkable as both she and Farage have repeatedly dismissed rumours of a liaison. Farage has described the claims as ‘malicious and cowardly’.

Within the party, however, knowledge of the relationship appears to have been widespread. One MEP, speaking on condition of anonymity, said: ‘It wasn’t just a fling or a one-night stand – he was thinking about leaving his wife for her. I have spoken to Nigel about the relationship in the past and know Annabelle and Nigel were still involved sexually until late last year.

‘Everyone in the party knew they were having an affair.’

It is also a relationship starkly at odds with Ukip’s consistent promotion of family values.

Today, in a perceptive and at times troubling account of their deception, Ms Fuller describes how the affair helped drive her into mental illness and life-threatening self-harm before a successful course of therapy. She believes that only by telling the truth will she be able to put her life ‘back on track’.

‘Right from the beginning, lying about the affair was a strategy we decided on,’ she says.

‘We had many conversations about it, even in the past couple of years. He told me I had to keep quiet. I said to him, ‘Do you have any idea how painful it is for me?’, and he would say ‘Yes’.

‘Nigel and I both knew we had to keep quiet to save Brexit. We are both liars and hypocrites but the reason I had to lie throughout the years was that I didn’t want Ukip or the cause we were fighting for to be damaged.

‘He said, ‘They will use anything they can to stop this, they will use anything they can to stop me. We are going up against the Establishment here. They will come after you.’ ‘

Although the relationship was consensual, Ms Fuller believes Farage should have taken more responsibility for his actions.

She describes the relationship as grossly inappropriate, particularly in recent years when, she says, she was in a state of deepening mental illness, later diagnosed as post-traumatic stress.

Speaking on condition of anonymity, a close member of her family expressed anger at the way events played out, saying: ‘Nigel has acted appallingly with regard to Annabelle. In 2005, he seemed to care for her but by last year he was treating her as an afterthought. Despite her nearly committing suicide, he still wanted her to be his sexual partner as late as last year. He is a complete narcissist and I’m pleased Annabelle can finally leave him in the past.’

Annabelle Fuller began working for Farage after completing a master's degree in international relations

There was a time when Annabelle Fuller was a highly regarded member of the Ukip team; someone who, at the height of her career, would advise Farage, brief the media and write articles for national newspapers under her boss’s name.

Today, she works behind the bar of a country pub near Bath.

It has taken a year of therapy to reach the point where she can speak openly about a relationship which began in 2004 in Brussels, where an up-and-coming Nigel Farage was a Member of the European Parliament. Then 23, Annabelle, who had just completed a master’s degree in international relations, had started working as a Ukip parliamentary researcher.

‘I was introduced to Nigel in the second week of the job and he was polite but cool,’ she recalls.

‘Looking back, I don’t recall an immediate spark of attraction on either side. To me, he was just another middle-aged man in a suit.’ After work, like hundreds of others, she would end up in one of the bars around the Parliament building, the kind where Farage held court. And she found herself drawn to the older, charismatic politician. Soon, the two were spending a lot of time together.

‘He was fun, with a wicked sense of humour,’ she says.

‘He had the best jokes and easily the most interesting political stories. I loved listening to him. I was captivated by his worldliness.’

For several months, the friendship remained platonic, with Farage something of a father figure. The vulnerable young woman – with a teenage history of bulimia, concerns about body image and self-esteem – came increasingly to rely upon him.

‘He took me into his confidence about work and party matters and would often ask for my advice. I was young but I was bright and I was eager to get stuck in.

‘I did research for him – advising him and briefing MEPs on how they were voting. I also helped with his speeches and parliamentary amendments. Our first kiss took place in Brussels in 2005. It was on my forehead. He was just saying goodnight, but it felt very comforting. It didn’t feel improper.

‘Our relationship grew very slowly over several months. After a while, he took me into his confidence – personally and politically.’

Farage had been with his wife, German-born Kirsten, since 1999, but he told Ms Fuller that it was a marriage in name only.

‘He said that it was an unhappy relationship and had been for some time. He told me the marriage was not a real one.’

Then, in April 2005, Farage asked Ms Fuller to work on his – as it would prove – unsuccessful General Election campaign in Thanet South, Kent, as a volunteer.

As their relationship grew, Farage told her it had to remain a secret but they were a 'proper couple' and  the Ukip leader moved into her flat in the Maelbeek area whenever he was in Brussels

‘I was flattered. Nigel visited every couple of days while we campaigned and sometimes stayed overnight in a hotel in Broadstairs.’

One evening, Farage invited a group to dinner at his hotel after a day of canvassing. As the evening went on, just three of them remained – Farage, Ms Fuller and one other person.

‘Nigel offered us a sofabed to sleep on because there were no taxis, but I was the only one to take up the offer,’ she recalls. ‘I knew what would happen if I stayed and I wanted it to. When we got upstairs I took one look at the room and said, ‘but there’s no sofabed,’ and we both just laughed.’

It was not, perhaps, the most romantic encounter.

‘I told him I needed something to change into and he produced a white T-shirt from his suitcase. Then I went to the bathroom, took off my make-up and used his toothbrush. When I came back into the bedroom he was in bed wearing a white T-shirt and white Y-fronts. I got in and said ‘budge-up’. It was very English.

‘It was gentle. Our clothes came off in the dark. He said, ‘you’re so beautiful’. We drifted off to sleep in each other’s arms.’ The following morning, he was up early, as ever.

‘He asked how I was, and said, ‘Do you regret it?’ I said no and he said neither did he and that my a*** had looked amazing in the moonlight.’

The relationship grew, but as it did so, the terms became clear: Farage told her it had to remain a secret.

‘He said he wanted me to go into a relationship with my eyes wide open. That he really liked me but he warned me that if people found out they would make my life hell.

‘I was already committed. I knew what we had was very special. I was in love. I was happy.’

From then on, she says, they were a ‘proper couple’ and Farage moved into her flat in the Maelbeek area whenever he was in Brussels.

‘He kept clothes and some shoes there. We still went out with others as a group and I think everyone knew by then that we were an item.’

For a while, Ms Fuller happily played the part of a surrogate wife, organising his life, both domestic and professional.

‘He was rather messy and left wet towels on the floor for me to pick up every morning. He could also be very absent-minded at times.’

Much later in the relationship, for example, he complained of earache while attending the 2014 party conference in Torquay.

‘I found out it was because he had left a broken Q-tip stuck in his ear for days,’ she says.

He was never too absent-minded for one important task, however.

In a letter to  Fuller, Farage said: 'I only wish that I had been free for you. With all my heart and body. Love Nigel

 

In a letter to  Fuller, Farage said: ‘I only wish that I had been free for you. With all my heart and body. Love Nigel

‘He was religious about polishing his shoes,’ she says.

‘And he seemed to have an awful lot. He told me he usually did the job himself on a Sunday.’

For a while, she was happy to remain a mistress, but as time passed her feelings changed.

‘In those early days, he was my reason for getting up in the mornings. Whenever Nigel left to go back to England, it was horrible and I was desolate.

‘He couldn’t even call me on the phone because he said he was with his family. It was very hard for me to know that he had another life.

‘Kirsten knew he was seeing me because someone in the party told her. I used to ring the home in Kent and she would hang up on me, or I could hear her hand the phone to Nigel with an acerbic ‘it’s her’.’

Growing increasingly depressed by her position as ‘the other woman’, Ms Fuller says she started to self-harm.

‘I started to cut myself some months into the relationship because I couldn’t articulate how I felt. When I told Nigel, he was devastated and blamed himself. He begged me to stop and said that he loved me.’

In the summer of 2006, Ms Fuller moved back to Britain to work in Ukip’s London press office where, although she still struggled with the clandestine nature of the affair, the two continued as lovers.

On November 3, her 25th birthday, Farage gave her a diamond pendant as a token of their feelings for each other. When that was stolen, he paid for a sapphire and diamond replacement.

But by the autumn, Ms Fuller decided to end the relationship and told him as they went for a walk on Beachy Head in East Sussex.

‘I was quite stand-offish with him and said that it wasn’t working. I didn’t want to be the other woman any more. I loved him but I wanted a proper relationship.’

He said he understood, but that his children were his priority.

A week later, she received a letter from Farage – dated November 25, 2006 – which she still keeps.

‘No one will ever love, understand or care for you the way that I do,’ it reads. ‘I adore you and the bond of friendship that we have shared. What I dread is not being close to you… I fear that this may not go away for many years.’

Pleading with her to take care of herself, he signed off the letter with: ‘I only wish that I had been free for you. With all my heart and body. Love Nigel x’.

She says: ‘I was angry. He was telling me he loved me and I wanted it to be a clean break.

‘I wanted a shot at a normal life. It was the first time he had declared his feelings so openly. But it was too little too late. I had to end it for me and for him but I know it hurt him very badly. We kept in touch because I could not imagine him not being in my life.’

She embarked on a new relationship, but this foundered. And by December 2007, she was back in a sexual relationship with Farage – which continued even when she quit the party in the autumn of 2008 to work with military charities in the UK.

‘I’d hoped to make a fresh start but even then I found I couldn’t cut the ties to him. He was the only person I could rely on.’

Besides, she found that she missed the excitement of politics and, in 2010, she asked Farage if she could go back and work for him, helping his successful campaign to become leader of the party, before working as his press aide.

At Christmas, he bought her a striking blood-red Vivienne Westwood coat from Harrods.

On her 25th birthday, Farage gave her a diamond pendant as a token of their feelings for each other. When that was stolen, he paid for a sapphire and diamond replacement.

 

On her 25th birthday, Farage gave her a diamond pendant as a token of their feelings for each other. When that was stolen, he paid for a sapphire and diamond replacement.

By now, however, there was a further complication. Farage had met a French woman called Laure Ferrari, 16 years his junior. (For years, Farage denied they were together, although in recent weeks his aides have confirmed the relationship, as first reported in The Mail on Sunday.)

Ms Fuller says she and Farage kept their relationship strictly professional between 2010 and 2012, however the sex resumed from 2013 onwards – only this time she felt there was a more sordid aspect to the liaisons.

‘He used to ask for hand massages and say he had all the stress in his hands. I used to give him them and we would talk and sometimes he would say, ‘how about here’, pointing down at his trousers.’

Then, in March 2014, came a bombshell intervention on the floor of the European Parliament when then Ukip MEP Nikki Sinclaire used parliamentary privilege to allege that Ms Fuller was ‘Farage’s mistress’, a claim he refused to answer immediately.

He later branded her action ‘cowardly and malicious’.

‘I have spoken to every national newspaper on this issue and the answer remains the same as it was in 2006,’ he said. ‘The answer is no.’

In May 2014, Ukip caused a minor earthquake by winning 24 seats in the European elections, beating both Labour and the Conservatives, a result which left Farage and his colleagues euphoric.

For Ms Fuller, however, it would prove a turning point.

Although she had worked on the election campaign, she was ordered to leave a celebration party near St James’s Park in Central London.

‘I was told by one of Nigel’s security staff that I had to leave on the orders of Kirsten Farage and that she would have me dragged out by my hair if I didn’t go,’ she says. ‘So I did, so as not to cause a scene. It was the culmination of how utterly cut off I was. I felt ashamed, useless and alone.’

She says the humiliation helped trigger a suicide attempt, the first of four dangerous episodes of self-harm in the course of the next few years. ‘I went home and slit my wrists and burnt myself with a cigarette repeatedly on my arm.

‘I went to hospital after a friend called an ambulance.’

Even so, the sexual encounters with Farage would continue.

‘He once turned up at my house in Wiltshire in 2015, a baseball cap pulled down over his eyes,’ she says. ‘He wanted sex. I told him no. But as usual Nigel was very insistent. We didn’t end up having full sex, but I did end up feeling like a hooker after he left.’

And when he propositioned her in an MEP’s office in Brussels in the spring of 2016, she once again accepted. ‘He came in and shut the door. He was lying on the sofa, we were talking and he said he was horny.

‘Very explicitly, he said, ‘I’m so stressed’ and asked me to give him a hand massage, which was always followed by me performing a sex act on him. It was over and done with quickly. At that point I was beyond caring.’

The last encounter took place in Strasbourg on October 4 last year. Again he entered the office when she was alone. ‘He gave me a kiss. I wanted affection. And I did as he asked.

‘But I felt disgusted with myself. The next day I learnt the EU was investigating some expenses and I flipped. That combined with the Nigel situation left me feeling that life was pointless. So I cut my wrist in the ladies’ toilet of the European Parliament and ended up in hospital in France.’

Throughout this time, she says, the pressure to maintain the lie became unbearable – the more so since they had been ‘outed’ on the floor of the European Parliament.

‘Nigel said we could keep it out of the media if both of us kept denying it and warned that it would be much worse for me if it came out.

‘I know we had many conversations about it in 2015 and 2016 when we were standing in my garden in the West Country. He told me we must keep any controversy out of the headlines until after Brexit.

‘The other month someone called me damaged, and that’s how I feel. A stupid girl.

‘I feel used and discarded. Now, I want to tell the truth so that I can claim my life back.

‘I’m fed up with living in the shadow of my former self. I’m tired of being ashamed of who I am. I’m not vain enough to think ‘He couldn’t help himself,’ but I do think it was up to him to not to get involved with me.

Last night, Mr Farage declined to confirm or deny that he had had an affair with Ms Fuller. In a statement he said: ‘At the time of Ms Fuller’s employment the party did not know there was a history of mental illness and other serious personal issues.

‘I always tried to help her, recognising that she had ability, and prevented her from being fired on several occasions.’

In his book, The Purple Revolution: The Year That Changed Everything, Farage credits a teacher at Dulwich College for instilling in him a rule for life, ‘the 11th commandment: don’t get caught’.

Today, that commandment lies shattered. And Farage, Ms Fuller says, has only himself to blame.

NOT GUILTY VERDICT

returned by the jury.

UNANIMOUSLY

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

Ex-MEP Nikki Sinclaire charged with money laundering

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Sinclaire, pledged to fight the charges.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Former MEP Nikki SinclaireFormer MEP Nikki Sinclaire

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Former MEP Nikki SinclaireFormer MEP Nikki Sinclaire

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

nikkisFormer UKIP MEP Nikki Sinclaire is on trial for expenses fraud

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

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

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

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

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

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

Mr Farage is heard to reply: “Mad.”

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Mr Ison replied: “Yes I would.”

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

“There were many pressures because of my position.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Nikki SinclaireNikki Sinclaire

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

On the strength of the evidence to date there is no doubt that the Jury would be perverse to find Nikki Sinclaire Guilty as there is absolutely no way that the prosecution has proved its case let alone beyond reasonable doubt.
That the EU official the expert witness Mr. Burriel confirmed all that Nikki Sinclaire had said and that it was confirmed by the EU official that Sinclaire had reported her suspicions regarding her expenses long before the Police even claim to have been involved and there was no evidence from the prosecution that Burriel or Sinclaire were disbelieved on this point makes the prosecution evidence clearly unsound it would seem.
That the prosecution evidence was unsound, as a display of criminal behaviour by Sinclaire seems clearly to be the case as no intent was shown, nor is there any sign that it is other than a clerical error or even a criminal action by John Ison designed to damage Sinclaire for Nigel Farage, as it has been undeniably shown by tape recordings played in court that Nigel Farage and John Ison were colluding. If John Ison at very least is not prosecuted it would be clearly perverse as he has admitted that he has lied under oath and the Judge has officially cautioned him relative to the risks of his dishonesty – that Nigel Farage may also be prosecuted may well also be a possibility!
It does seem that the most concrete evidence of criminality brought by the prosecution was, as the prosecution barrister stated in his summing up (closing argument), merely ‘coincidence’!
That the sum total of the allegations revolve around £2.1/2K when it has been proven in Court, and accepted by the prosecution, that Sinclaire not only did not claim for trips to Cyprus and also a trip to Cuba – all as a legitimate part of her work as an MEP nor did she draw down all of her budget in the 2 years concerned leaving over £40K unclaimed and further that in her first 3 years as an MEP Sinclaire paid from her own moniey over £90K into her work as an MEP – this case seems to me to be little more than vexatious and seemingly by a malicious action that duped an incompetent or corrupt police force!
Bear in mind neither the EU payments office nor The EU’s fraud department were remotely interested in the claims, even when told about them and had they been Sinclaire had long before informed them and the Police that she had concerns that someone was acting unlawfully in her office but she had neither the time, due to pressure of duties as an MEP, nor the skills required to investigate the problem she had reported!
That Nikki Sinclaire was able to call an independent forensic accountant to substantiate her every claim and verify the details of her account yet the police prosecution were unable to present any corroborated evidence or lead any evidence of consequence after spending a sum approaching £1.1/2Million (estimate) of public money trying to build a case out of errors amounting to £2.1/2K speaks volumes!
Fri-08-Jul-2016
We have now heard all the evidence for both the prosecution and the defence also the closing arguments of first the prosecution barrister Antonie Muller and the barrister for the defence Sean Hammond.
Today Judge Stephen Eyre QC has informed the Court he will be summing up the case for the jury, which he estimates will take upto 3 hours, in that the Court will sit from 10am that implies that by 1pm the trial will be over at which time it will be a matter for the judge to decide whether to ajourn the court until Monday or to immediately send out the jury for deliberation. We shall see!
12:00hrs. Fri-08-2016
I have just been notified that the Judge’s summing up has been completed and was reasonable and balanced and neutral in tone. The Judge has sent the jury out to deliberate and based on the facts it is my opinion that for the jury to find guilty would be a perverse decision. The jury will take as long as they wish/need to deliberate before returning to court later today or on Monday to deliver their verdict. We shall see!
I have been surprised that Simon Timothy Orme Specialist Lawyer in the CPS Special Crime Division, their London office I believe, sat in through more than half the trial as dis at least 2 police officers each day and on some days as many as 3 police – the reason for their presence at such a cost is concerning!
15:40hrs. Fri-08-2016
I have just heard that the jury has been sent home for the weekend, as having not reached a verdict yet.
11:30hrs. Monday 11-Jul-2016
Court has reconvened and the jury is still out continuing its deliberations after 2.1/2hrs. failing to come to a verdict on Friday.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Jurors heard evidence from key prosecution witness Mr Ison.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

 

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

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

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

‘Unnecessary’ case

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

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

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

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

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

“I now welcome the opportunity to move forward.”

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

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

Nikki Sinclaire: ‘I have this thing about injustice’

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Undeterred, she eventually underwent gender reassignment surgery at 23.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

IT IS WORTH ASKING:

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

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

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

 

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

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

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

QUOTED from CLICK HERE

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

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

Hi,
the story of Ukip in the South West has been an ongoing debacle for a number of years, right back to when Gawain Towler was dumped by the SW Committee as their candidate because of the facts pertaining to his sexual arousal by his own daughter whilst bathing with her – then the total disregard for democracy within Ukip when he was reinstated a couple of days later by Nigel Farage and promoted within the party.
Meanwhile this was the time when Nigel Farage orchestrated – nay invented – a witch hunt to remove Dr. Eric Edmonds who had been elected by the people of the SW both as their representative on the National Ukip NEC as with Dr. David Abbott – they were dishonestly ousted by Nigel Farage and cronies who feared their efforts to make the party both more accountable and more transparent by for the members.
This was also at the time that the scoundrel Malcolm Wood was colluding behind the backs of elected Ukip committees to engineer his own choices for positions within the party to assist the corruption and the continued dominence of Nigel Farage rendering the party as something of a one man band with individuals like Douglas Denny corrupting internal selection processes and elections aided by low lifes like of Mark Croucher & Mick McGough.
Meanwhile it seemed that some in control were robbing the party blind – viz less than 15% of the money collected via Ashworth Call Centre ever reaching the party (described by Nigel Farage as Ukip’s best ever fund raising scheme).
It was around that time that this web site disclosed the fact that Nigel Farage had set up an off shore trust in The Isle of Man and had in one deposit alone invested £250,000 in the tax haven!
Make of this what you will.

***************************************************************************************************

UKIP’s rotten ‘Camborne Redruth and Hayle’ branch in Cornwall was supposed to be shut down after the election due to abject failure to achieve by-election sucess (23% REVERSAL in Pendarves, Camborne) not to mention almost total collapse of the branch during general election campaign, ousting of the branch Chairman and other officals by a cabal led by Cornwall Councilor Harry Blakeley – who then took over the branch himself! 

 

Already covered here: https://ukip-vs-eukip.com/2015/12/24/the-anatomy-of-a-ukip-election-campaign-camborne-redruth-hayle/ 

 

Steve Crowther for reasons unknown made a “180 degree u-turn” and decided to bin the idea and keep the branch open! Nobody knows why, apart from Crowther!

 

Since then UKIP Cornwall has been a “distaster zone”, and is at the centre of a dispute with members over Anti-Semitic messages eminating from the St Ives branch. Crowther’s failures have caused MAJOR donors to pull out of UKIP funding, including personal friends of Nigel Farage in the Duchy who we, we are reliably informed, are “disgusted” with UKIP’s failure to do anything about these problems!

 

Local activists that attempted to deal with these issues were given no support from Crowther or UKIP Cornwall Council leader Steph McWilliams, in fact the party threatened those loyal members who attempted to deal with rampant corruption and anti-semitism with disiplinary action should they dare speak of it in public!

Dear REDACTED

If Camborne, Redruth & Hayle branch has irreconcilable disputes or is failing to find adequate leadership, you have my permission to suspend the committee and take it into regional control, under rule B.7.2. However, I recommend identifying a caretaker chairman to keep the home fires burning.

Steve,

Just to be clear, does your comment below “I am sure you are right” equate to your written permission to close this dysfunctional branch?  Unfortunately, the miscommunication, trouble-making & negativity coming out of CHR is invariably widely copied to other members & branches by the Chairman & undermines UKIP’s good name.  I have always done my best by the Party & will take this step in the interests of the EU Referendum as I close down tomorrow if I have your backing.  As you know, I drafted the letters to the committee & membership several days ago.   

By the way, I will be attending the Taunton County meeting this evening as it seems the professional & proper thing to do!

Regards,

REDACTED

A meeting was arranged so that members could voice their concerns, alas, the meeting was “spolied” by St Ives Chairman Guppy, Camborne Chairman Blakeley, plus an univited guest. The police were almost called to the meeting. Result? PROMOTION of Mr Guppy to “Vice Chairman of the County” a position that does not exist within UKIP!

Dear confused Stuart,

I’m not sure why you’ve written to me, or any of the other recipients of your ludicrous email.

Let me give you some advice and guidance:

  1. For a start, get your facts right.  The person who wrote the minutes for the meeting on the 16th of September, was RO Guy Parfitt.  I have re read the meagre account that Guy submitted as being the Minutes for this meeting, and can find no mention of “that woman”. See attachment.
  1. Your version of the events, and with regard to the disruption that you, Blakeley and the woman caused at the start of the meeting, is complete rubbish. There is a full transcript of every word spoken during this 20 minute period of the meeting. This transcript exposes the fact that you have been blatantly misleading others into believing yours and Blakeley’s version of events. 

I suggest we meet up at your next branch meeting and discuss this matter openly.  Michael Muldowney would be happy to attend as well, and we’d be more than willing to present the transcript, plus other evidence…. can we agree to do this ?, after all, It’s only right that having copied so many in on this matter, that they should know the truth, and you will have the opportunity to prove me wrong, I think not!!! 

I also attach another damning comment regarding the perceived disgusting behaviour on the part of all three of you. See attachment.  I think this comment sums up the general consensus of opinion from those who were at the meeting, and were unfortunately subjected to yours, Blakeley’s, and the woman’s obnoxious behaviour, in not only attempting to shut the meeting down, but by using the woman to do it.  (Gutless is word that springs to mind)  All three of you slunk away from the building after being told to leave.  This of course can be fully verified by the security staff. The business of the meeting then continued without further disruption.

  1. My advice, You thought you could cause problems, and disrupt the meeting. You succeeded for Twenty minutes in delaying the agenda for the evening.  I’m not sure what cost benefits you derived from this futile exercise, but let me assure you that your irrational behaviour does more harm than good, so start acting in a more professional manner, or perhaps, just retire gracefully. The same advice is available to Chm Blakeley.

On another subject, and given the working relationship that you enjoy with Chm Blakeley,  I have attached a message that I received from Steve Crowther on the 30th of June, giving permission to put CR&H branch into special measures by removing Harry Blakeley as Chairman of the branch.  This came about as a result of a direct instruction from Nigel Farage at a meeting earlier this year.

There were issues during the GE campaign that precluded this edict from being implemented immediately, however, action with regard to this subject is ongoing, and hopefully will be concluded shortly.

Oops, you requested an apology, the answers no, but if you accept the proposed meeting, I’ll more than willingly apologise if I’m proved to be wrong, much as you will, ‘ve no doubt, when your proven wrong!

I look forward to your acceptance e-mail, please include the date, time, and venue for the meeting.

My kind regards,

REDACTED

Dear REDACTED

Thanks for the email.  Once again, I have taken the liberty of copying this to REDACTED – as I did previously without adverse comment from you – since you may well agree that he should not be kept in the dark.

You say: ‘The opportunity to deal with the ongoing problems on an amicable basis is long gone.’  and ‘…there is little hope of dealing with these issues “in house’ thereby protecting UKIP’s image’.  Since you have not specifically mentioned the possible meeting of the three of us I take this to mean that you do not now want to pursue that line.  The phrase “in house” is ambiguous: do you mean within the Cornwall Committee, or within UKIP writ large?  I suspect the former, in which case – after having spent hours reading much material including MM’s detailed dossier –  I agree with you.  I am sure you do not mean the latter – to bring up the issue outside Party channels – since that could only harm the Party and do more harm than good.

Yesterday (9 Dec) I discussed the issues with Steve Crowther and he has made the following rulings:

  1. He has investigated the various complaints made primarily by you but also REDACTED against Harry Blakely and Stuart Guppy, and has decided that they do not provide grounds for Party disciplinary action.
  1. If you or REDACTED wish to take these complaints further, you should do so using the Disciplinary Procedures laid down in the Party Constitution and Rule Book.  You should get the appropriate forms from Diane Belk, and send them in duplicate when completed  to David Chalice at Lexdrum.  He will then initiate the necessary procedures within the Disciplinary Committee.
  1. This dispute is not to be further discussed in Cornwall County Committee meetings.
  1. This dispute should not receive any public airing outside UKIP channels.  Any attempt to do so – e.g. promulgating anything relating to them in social media – could subject the perpetrator to Party disciplinary action,

The way ahead then is twofold.  The County Committee will not discuss these old disputes, but will get on with other important County business.   Meanwhile you or REDACTED or both are free to table a complaint under the Party Constitution and Rules as I have previously mentioned more than once.  As I understand it, neither Harry nor Stuart is planning to resign; therefore the only ways to remove them are for their branch to vote them out, or for them to be removed by the Party Discipline Committee following a substantiated complaint.  There is no formal action that the County Chairman or Committee can take, so there is no point in discussing the issue in County meetings.  I agree with you that rotten apples should be eliminated, but this must be through the laid-down procedures. 

Finally – a minor point that is not relevant to the main issue – I do not see that I have to ‘defend’ myself for accepting the County Chairman role without knowing all the facts.  I accepted nomination reluctantly because I wanted to find out the facts and do all I could to defuse the issue so that Cornwall could get on with its main aims.  Formerly, as a non-member of the Committee I was aware of the dispute, but had no locus standi  to question people on the issue.  As Chairman I had a mandate to do so.  Following Steve’s rulings, I no longer need to exercise it.

Best wishes

David

More to come on this story, perhaps when Crowther is ousted as chief UKIP seller of snake oil he can join the white wash business!

Whether the above material, which flags up many points made on this web site elsewhere, was supplied to me now because it is ongoing (from what I hear it is) or because there is an election in process I leave to you to speculate.
Do also consider this critique of Ukip Cornwall, firast published on 11-Apr-2016:

FULL COLLAPSE OF ENTIRE #UKIP CORNWALL AS ANOTHER COUNCILLOR QUITS

Cornwall might be on the periphery of the UK, but when it comes to UKIP it is central to their plans – and for those of us who keep tabs, an interesting barometer of UKIP fortunes. ‘Kipper’ success in the Duchy was at one time promoted heavily by the party, after it ‘won’ the 2014 EU elections with 37% of the vote in the county, it also returned the party six seats in 2013’s local elections.

Cornwall: Lots of elderly retirees, and by the sea. Perfect Ukip territory, you’d think.

The county has a unitary authority council running it, and there is high support for a Cornish assembly that would maximise devolved powers replacing the existing system, and although UKIP are against it, at one time they conceivably could have won seats in the proposed ‘parliament’.

It’s also one of just two UK regions (along with South Wales) in receipt of generousEuropean Regional Development Funding (ERDF) worth around £500m over six years.

This money has been used to fund infrastructure and education, however, UKIP wish to do away with it and despite claims they would replace it we’re yet to see any costed, serious, plans.

With the news that UKIP Cornwall Councillor Mark Hicks has quit, the party’s local representatives have fallen to just two, from the original six.

We have already covered the situation with racism and anti-Semitism in our previous articles, and with UKIP’s utter unprofessionalism and repeated gaffes in Cornwall we feel they are totally unelectable.

This should be a warning for anybody considering voting for UKIP as their local representative.

Here is our run down of UKIP’s Cornish Council failures. 

MICHAEL KEOGH – Elected to a ward in the Falmouth and Truro area, Keogh became the first of the six to quit just months after the election. No official explanation from UKIP was given but rumours circulated about his health issues, which we are told were legitimate.

VIV LEWIS – Lewis claimed he was a paper candidate who just happened to get elected (by 12 votes) and in his mid-eighties when he came to office. Immediately involved in public bout of racism, he claimed he couldn’t be racist because he had “been to the West Indies on holiday”.  He resigned in 2015 and his seat was won by Labour. Mr Lewis passed away in January of this year.

HARRY BLAKELEY – Blakeley a former brewery manager resigned from his seat just weeks after the general election, triggering a by-election at additional cost to the tax-payer. His tenure as a Cornwall Councillor was marred by several embarrassing gaffes (full blog post on them soon) including illegally allowing travellers onto private land, and a string of very strange episodes involving his ‘protégé’ the notorious Cornish BNP activist, Rosie Ward.

MARK HICKS – A “strange individual” who we are told was “never seen” at UKIP events and functions. Turned up for council votes but did nothing else of note. We’re also told Hick’s “goes everywhere with his parents”. He stood down suddenly citing “personal reasons” using a facebook message to write to the leader of Cornwall Council.

DEREK ELLIOTT – We’re told Elliott is a “solid councillor and a good chap”. A 2010 PPC who had a good profile in his constituency, he was pushed aside for ‘big draw’ Bob Smith, a personal friend of Nigel Farage for the Camborne/Redruth target seat. Still remains a Cornwall Councillor but we are told he won’t be running again in 2017.

STEPHANIE McWILLIAMS – Long term UKIP insider and former party health spokeswoman who has done the rounds on regional and county committees. Led the council election campaign on a pledge to oppose house building, but then voted for a 45,000 increase anyway. A lame duck since the housing vote, McWilliams was also involved in the anti-Semitic cover up in St Ives (see our previous articles) which caused donors to withdraw £100k in funding and support. We’re are also told she “did nothing” to support her general election candidate. She has since resigned her chairmanship of South East Cornwall and does not plan to seek re-election in 2017.

Cornwall – a little microcosm of how Ukip works.

Ukip’s Dirty Tricks Towards Their Only MP, The Tory Turncoat Douglas Carswell, Are Nothing New In Their Chosen Gutter.

Hi,

Ukip would seem to be upto their standard behaviour seeking to control and defeat those who dare to oppose them or question their style, policies, corruption, racism and lack of vision, strategies or even tactics.

You will remember when the Nigel Farage cult following fell out with

SKED, Alan UKIP Founder 01

Alan Sked and when Farage was out manouvered he quit the party and had meetings with the BNP – many believe it was with a view to joining tjhem and taking over theri leadership:

#899* - CROUCHER STYLE POISON CREEPS ARE OUT IN FORCE I SEE

Subsequently Farage rejoined Ukip and then his cult fan club fell out with the party leader and MEP Michael Holmes, stealing computers from the party HQ when Nigel Farage’s goffer, fixer and sewer rat Mark Croucher broke into the party offices and stole their computers taking them away in the boot of his car!

 

Michael Holmes was rumoured about, vituperatively attacked and undermined – eventually having a heart attack and after that retiring as an MEP and as party leader.

 

The field was now open for the Farage Fan Cult, with pond life like

DENNY, Douglas 02

Douglas Denny CLICK HERE & HERE & ALSO HERE, Mark Croucher CLICK HERE & HERE, Annabelle Fuller, Christopher Gill, Gawain Towler,

LOTT, David 01

David Lott and the like willing and able to lie and spin any situation to ensure Farage was elected, including rigging elections and cheating to ensure their sponsor would gain power for their personal gain.

 

Then we had the leadership elections when lies and corruption became the order of the day with the usual suspects working with nigel Farage to pervert due process such as Douglas Denny’s active campaigning for Farage whilst supposedly acting as returning officer a position from which he was eventually removed for his corruption and lies, also the lies and efforts of such as Annabelle Fuller who was acting with Nigel Farage to ensure his election by telling lies as when she actively lied about a rival, Richard Suchorzewski  telling people he was an active supporter of the BNP and was homosexual – both of which were outright lies of absolutely no merit.

 

There was the dark era when Nigel Farage acted with members of his fan cult and those he had ensured were appointed to positions to support his dishonesty and prop up his inep-t and corrupt leadership as he and they attacked elected members of Ukip NEC who wished to introduce transparency and accountability to Ukip’s accounts and lies, spin and distortion of process was used to remove Dr. David Abbott, Dr. Eric Edmonds and others.

 

There was also the selection process for MEP candidates in which

McGOUGH, Michael 05

Mick McGough lied to advance his position and also set out to intimidate rivals with the support of Nigel Farage and his selected NEC – individuals like John West were lied about and efforts made to block them.

 

Mick McGough also acted as a stalker and disseminator of dishonest spin about such as Richard Suchorzewski for Nigel Farage, seemingly in respopnse to support from Farage for his own enhancement.

 

The selection process was utterly corrupted for Nigel Farage and his personal appointment supervising the selection process Christopher Gill actively colluded in the lies and corruption – for more facts

MERCHANT, Piers 04

Piers Merchant, as the returning officer, put in his report of the corruption CLICK HERE

 

Then there was the active campaigning by Farage’s fan cult against

PAIN, Chris 01

Chris Pain CLICK HERE for details.

 

More recently there was the conivance against

BADZAK, Jasna 01

Jasna Badzak and the lies and corruption utilised with the Courts to obtain a completely unsound verdict against her and the recent withdrawal of a dishonest and corrupt legal claim against her by Nigel Farage’s long term associate Gerard Batten.

 

#524* - THE FILTH OF EUkip - McGough et al.

Mark Croucher, a long term employee of Nigel Farage’s also acted for the party, aided with dishonest support from Paul Nuttall MEP and the party Press Office to try to silence myself and my publication of facts and the truth about Ukip and its leadership, wherein a palpably dishonest abuse of the due process of law and the Courts was implemented  – The case was dismissed by the Courts and costs were awarded in favour of myself – to date Ukip have failed to pay the costs ordered against their employee and still have a debt to me of some £13.1/2 thousand + interest, a debt of honour which unsurprisingly Mark Croucher & Ukip lacks the integrity to pay.

 

Then there were the false claims and lies of

BATTEN, Gerard 09

Gerard Batten MEP and the aid from his cronies in the Metropolitan Police to try to have me arrested and prosecuted on false claims of racist attacks against him and harrassment, similar to his effortts to silence journalists in the mainstream media – there is now every probability that his dishonesty will face the Courts where such activity can expect a substantial custodial sentence, which would no doubt be exacerbated by his obvious abuse of public office!

 

At the moment it is worth noting that Nigel Farage is colluding in a corrupt and groundless case against Nikki Sinclaire, which started with Nigel Farage’s widely stated annoyance that she had been elected as a Ukip MEP – it is interesting to note that it does seem self evident that Nikki Sinclaire’s work output and commitment to the cause put every one of Ukip’s MEPs tos shame and her results far outstripped any one of them, which did nothing to endear her to the useless bounders who had been elected, and her donations of her own money to supporting the cause rather than the donations made by a few of the MEPs which would seem only to have been in their own personal interest to support their own campaigns for election or re-election. That Farage was actively involved in colluding with others to have Nikki Sinclaire is an open secret.

 

In keeping with these and many other similar actions it is clear that Ukip are still instigating corrupt and dishonest actions to try to deliberately damage rivals of Nigel Farage – as in this example highlighted in the media today:

BLACKMAILED: Ukip’s only MP was the target of a secret tape plot to smear his private life by ‘dark forces’ within party

  • Douglas Carswell received call after blazing row with a Farage senior aide
  • The caller asked personal questions about his private life and his marriage
  • Now emerged recordings of conversations circulated in his constituency
  • Carswell called for ‘fresh face’ as leader and slammed ‘dark forces’ in party 
Douglas Carswell (pictured with wife, Clemantine) has hit out against ‘dark forces’ in Ukip after learning yesterday of an apparent ‘blackmail plot’ against him

Douglas Carswell (pictured with wife, Clemantine) has hit out against ‘dark forces’ in Ukip after learning yesterday of an apparent ‘blackmail plot’ against him

Douglas Carswell has hit out against ‘dark forces’ in Ukip after learning yesterday of an apparent ‘blackmail plot’ against him involving secret tapes and false allegations about his private life.

The Ukip MP received a phone call from a party figure asking ‘grossly intrusive questions’ about his marriage – which he now believes was a warning to him to stop rebelling against Nigel Farage.

Happily married Carswell, 44, says the allegations are completely untrue, and he has refused to be silenced on the future of the party.

The call was made a few days after Carswell had a blazing row in the Commons with one of Farage’s key aides, party secretary Matthew Richardson. He told Carswell he would ‘regret’ crossing him.

Now the MP has been horrified to learn that secretly recorded Ukip conversations shortly after the row – in which wild allegations were made about his personal circumstances – have been circulated in his constituency.

On Friday, Carswell infuriated Farage by calling for a ‘fresh face’ as leader in the wake of the party’s poor performance in this month’s Oldham by-election. Farage said Carswell should ‘put up or shut up’.

The bust-up with Richardson took place four days after Ukip’s disappointing General Election result, which saw Carswell returned to Parliament as the party’s only MP.

It came after he emailed Richardson and Farage to say that he would only be taking a proportion of the £650,000 in taxpayer funding which Ukip was allowed to claim in the new Parliament. Carswell insisted that this so-called ‘short money’ should only be spent to help him represent his Clacton constituency.

But Richardson – who is also embroiled in the ‘Tatler Tory’ row as a close friend of Mark Clarke, the campaign manager accused of bullying – stormed down to the Commons to say it should all be appropriated by Ukip’s cash-strapped head office.

Last night Carswell gave an account of the confrontation and the sinister call which followed.

He said: ‘Richardson was both aggressive and insistent during the meeting in a Commons committee room, telling me that he would determine how the short money was spent. He said I would be like a US Senator representing the 4 million people who had voted for Ukip.

‘I told Richardson that it was not for him to make such decisions. I was there to represent my Clacton constituency. The money had to be spent correctly, in accordance with Commons rules. He told me that Ukip could spend the money as it wished. I can only imagine he felt that he was acting with Nigel’s blessing.

The call came after he emailed Richardson and Farage to say that he would only be taking a proportion of the £650,000 in taxpayer funding which Ukip was allowed to claim in the new Parliament

The call came after he emailed Richardson and Farage to say that he would only be taking a proportion of the £650,000 in taxpayer funding which Ukip was allowed to claim in the new Parliament

‘I went outside, and while waiting for the lift, Richardson tried to threaten and intimidate me. He said that I would regret my decision not to go along with what he had been proposing. I was subsequently told that Nigel said he had “sent” Richardson down to see me.’

The encounter was followed two days later by a meeting between Carswell and Farage during which, Carswell says, the leader displayed anger at his MP’s refusal to take the short money in full. Days later, Carswell received the call from someone he describes as a ‘senior UKIP official’, and was asked ‘a series of totally inappropriate and leading questions about my private life’.

CARSWELL V FARAGE: NOW THE RELATIONSHIP HAS TURNED TOXIC

The uneasy relationship between Nigel Farage and his solitary MP turned toxic after Ukip’s election disappointment.

Farage was mocked after resigning as leader then changing his mind, and the situation turned into a row with Carswell over the amount of ‘short money’ – payments to help opposition parties pay for Westminster operations – he should claim.

Carswell objected to being told to claim the entire £650,000 and divert funds to the party HQ, rather than just claiming a sufficient amount to fund his Commons office. 

Carswell, who has a daughter with wife Clementine, said: ‘The suggestions made were preposterous. Either they were stupid enough to believe them, and wanted to scare me into silence by letting me know that they knew about it, or they were threatening me with the spread of false rumours. Either way, it could be construed as blackmail by dark forces’.

Carswell has clashed repeatedly with Farage since defecting from the Conservatives 18 months ago.

The Clacton MP has spoken out against his leader’s negative approach to immigrants and they have signed up for separate ‘Leave’ campaign groups in the upcoming EU referendum. Farage is allied to the Leave.EU campaign; Carswell has joined the Tory eurosceptic-dominated Vote Leave group – leading Farage to grumble privately that Carswell had ‘gone home’ to his ‘Conservative friends’.

Richardson denied any knowledge of the phone call, and added: ‘I did not use threatening language against Douglas. He was the one who got angry.’

When he was a student, Richardson set up the Oxford Gossip online forum where people could anonymously post about their peers.

The site was shut down in 2008 but friends claim he has boasted about keeping the web logs ‘for use when the people become famous’. Richardson denied keeping the logs.

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

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.

Ex-Ukip MEP guilty of huge fraud – Fraud Seems Endemic In Ukip over the years and even present MEPs embroilled in fraud and corruption.

Ex-Ukip MEP guilty of huge fraud

A former Ukip MEP has been found guilty of fraudulently claiming almost £500,000 in European Parliament expenses.

A jury at London’s Southwark Crown Court took an hour and 42 minutes to find Ashley Mote, 79, guilty of 12 fraud-related offences and of using the gains to fund his court battles in the UK.

Mote, of Binsted, Hampshire, was found guilty of four counts of obtaining a money transfer by deception, three of false accounting, two of fraud, and one each of acquiring criminal property, concealing criminal property and theft.

The offences took place between November 2004 and July 2010.

Releasing Mote on conditional bail, Mr Justice Stuart Smith said: “He must appreciate that there is a very strong likelihood that a custodial sentence will follow.”

The judge said he was not concerned about the “relatively short time” it took the jury to reach its decisions.

He said: “I have watched you over the four weeks (of the trial) and you have been giving this close attention.”

A date for sentencing has yet to be set.

The prosecution claimed that Mote submitted numerous false claims for parliamentary assistance allowance for payment for work that organisations had carried out on his behalf.

The prosecution also claimed that he dishonestly obtained approximately 355,000 euros and £184,000 of allowances to which he was not entitled.

Between 2004, when he was elected MEP, and 2009, Mote claimed a total of £750,000 in parliamentary assistance allowance – taking into account his legitimate claims and any alleged fraudulent activity.

Mote was elected as a Ukip MEP for south east England in 2004, but shortly before he took up his seat he was thrown out of Nigel Farage’s party because he was being prosecuted by the Department for Work and Pensions for benefit fraud.

He sat as an independent MEP until 2009, when he decided not to stand for re-election.

The case would seem to have hinged on the fact that under some circumstances MEPs may utilise tax payers’ money to defend or prosecute cases related to offences commited whilst in office.

Ashley Mote was prosecuted and found guilty of benefit fraud commited prior to his election to office.

I believe Ashley mote acted on the presumption that either no case would have been called had he not been elected as a Ukip MEP, or that he was entitled to the legal defence because he was an MEP. In the belief that he would win he may have considered it only as a loan undrawn down as the Crown would be liable for costs.

There is I understand precedent for this as I gather Gerard Batten used Tax payers’ money to fund legal matters.

Having been removed from Ukip Ashley Mote was denied access to advice on the matter from the party and would seem to have dug himself an ever deeper hole with his costly appeals and lengthy Court cases. There is no doubt he is guilty of these new offences it would seem though there is a ‘rationalle’ for claiming his earlier prosecution was brought about by his political stance and position.

The claims against Nikki Sinclaire would seem to be entirely different and are seemingly without sound foundation as they would apppear to have been triggered by the self serving ambitions of John Ison and contrived evidence and claims. Were there any validity to the claims it is clear that Nikki Sinclaire was in no way the guilty party as all the claims against her were firstly technical misunderstandings and secondly during the period when, to avoid any such errors, every Ukip MEP surrendered control of their accounts, expenses and salary claims to Nigel Farage’s appointed accountant – thus Nigel Farage is directly responsible for any such errors as claimed!

There is absolutely no claim made against Nikki Sinclaire brought by the Police or CPS subsequent to her having left Ukip and it is an auditted fact that she paid from her own personal income and savings into her campaigning against EU membership and other constituency duties at least 4 or 5 times the amount she is claimed to have falsely drawn whilst Ukip controlled her accounts.

The Ashley Mote case has more in common with that of Tom Wise, who was sentenced to 2 years in prison, though he only served a few months! Tom Wise had embezzelled money from the EU, aided by the signatures of Lindsay Jenkins as you will recal from the facts provided on this blog at the time. Interestimngly at no time was Tom Wise either suspended from or thrown out of Ukip and was allowed to serve his full term as an MEP a Ukip member.

Tom Wise was vigerously defended and his criminal activity was strenuously denied by Ukip senior officials, dishonest individuals such as Douglas Denny, Mick McGough, Mike Nattrass, Mark Croucher, Anthony Butcher and many naiive members, also the duplicitous Roger Helmer who you may well recal was also featured in the video sting carried out by TNOTW!

The dishonest claiming of expenses and false accounting of Ukip senior officials is clearly endemic starting at the top with the then leader Jeffrey Tittford having been ordered to repay EU money he had falsely claimed and used, followed by Nigel Farage in similar circumstances not to mention setting up off shore accounts to benefit from tax breaks with an Isle of Man account to which he deposited 100s of £1,000, or the misappropriation of 10s of £1,000s of pounds by Derek Clark who though he was never prosecuted, unlike Tom Wise, he was ordered to repay to the EU.

Then of course the leader Malcolm Lord Pearson besides being exposed as an unashamed anti Islamic racist was shown on film by The Sunday Times as having colluded with Nigel Farage to lainder money from donors via his company Global Britain at the same time that he was colluding with Stuart Agnew in seeking to obfuscate donations! Stuart Agnew also made it clear that he and David Bannerman were fiddling their expenses to pay the salaries of inappropriate staff!

There is also the matter of Ukip’s abject failure to responsibly, honestly or transparently present accounts for the Ashford scam, described by Nigel Farage as the most profitable organisation Ukip had ever had to make money! There was also the matter of laundering credit card payments through Graham Booth’s motel in Torquay and let us not forget that when OLAF investigated Graham Booth they ordered repayment of other funds claimed and failed to exhonourate Mike Nattrass subsequent to their investigation of his activities. Though Derek Clark was found guilty by OLAF and we understand his file was passed to the British Police who it seems took no action, as with Stuart Agnew, Malcolm Pearson, David Bannerman and no doubt others!

One wonders why, with so much sound evidence, the police have taken no action against these individuals yet have seemingly trumped up a case against Nikki Sinclaire based upon the most febrile of claims, which are easily dismissed and over such a small amount of money, when 100s of £1,000s of claims against Ukip have been ignored!

Then of course there is Ukip’s blatant dishonesty and disregard for British Courts and the undeniable fact that they are indebted to me for some £13,500 and interest over some half a dozen years which they have failed to pay, and the fact that Nigel Farage’s grubby little sewer rat Mark Croucher flagrantly ignores his debts as ordered by the Courts.

Some may remember the dubious funding of Mark Croucher’s two pubs, which he claimed were funded by Ukip/Nigel Farage as ‘hush money’ – naturally with Mark Croucher running them both failed, though he tried to blame everything but his own incompetence and lack of ability!

I understand Ukip finances are currently under legal scrutiny, particularly as to the recent General Election and it is a well publicised fact that Ukip are currently on the verge of bankruptcy and as yet it is unclear whether they paid their due election debts on the 05-Jul-2015 as legally required!

Then of course worthy of note is that Nigel Farage has been questioned regarding the allegations made by Annabelle Fuller when she stole Andrew Bridgen’s Blackberry, House of Commons Pass & confidential correspondence the file related to her criminality has been passed to the CPS and it is a matter of speculation to what extent Nigel Farage is implicated by his phone calls with her when she was involved in the crime!

Also we are still awaiting an outcome of the investigation of Janice Atkinson’s fraud whilst working for Farage when she claimed money for an event organised for Nigel Farage’s EFDD.

etc. etc. etc.

Clearly there is much more for Ukip and its staff to answer to, but let us leave it there for the moment rather than deal with other areas of criminality within their ranks!
For a slightly different ‘take’ on Ashley Mote’s trial, crimes and sentence:

A former Ukip MEP who cheated almost £500,000 in European Parliament expenses has been jailed for five years.

Ashley Mote, 79, submitted bogus claims for his parliamentary allowance, which was supposed to be for work that organisations had carried out on his behalf.

He used the money to fund his court battles in the UK after he was prosecuted for a previous benefits fraud.

The politician dishonestly obtained approximately 355,000 euro and £184,000 of allowances to which he was not entitled.

Mote, of Binsted, Hampshire, was sentenced to a total of five years imprisonment at Southwark Crown Court today.

• Nigel Farage to sack Patrick O’Flynn in purge of Ukip coup plotters

Mr Justice Stuart Smith said Mote had “lied, protested, lied and lied again” during his trial.

“Your greed and dishonesty were matched only by your hypocrisy because while this was going on you carried out a high profile campaign condemning corruption and the improper use of public money in the very institution from which you were leeching it.”

He continued: “You knew perfectly well what the rules were for the claiming of expenses and you also knew perfectly well that what you were doing had nothing to do with funding whistleblowers and everything to do with funding your bridging loan, your mortgage, your legal expenses that were unrelated to your role as an MEP.

“You abused your position of trust as an elected representative and you abused the trust that the European Parliament placed in you, consistently making false statements in the knowledge that the institutions trusted their MEPs to be reliable and honest.


Ashley Mote at an earlier court appearance in April (Julian Simmonds/The Telegraph)

“Along the way you deceived people who shared your declared political ideals and even considered you to be something of a political hero.

“You are, as was said by the trial judge when you were convicted of substantial benefits fraud in 2007, a thoroughly dishonest man.

“The consistency of your dishonesty is breathtaking.”

Mr Justice Smith said: “As you came to towards the end of your time as an MEP you decided to milk what you saw as your cash cow to the limit.”

Mote was convicted at trial of four counts of obtaining a money transfer by deception, three of false accounting, two of fraud, and one each of acquiring criminal property, concealing criminal property and theft. The offences took place between November 2004 and July 2010.

Mote was allowed to sit in the back of court because of hearing problems.

Hi,
many are of the clear opinion that ‘Breitbart’ was one, if not the only gain for Ukip in Nigel Farage’s frequent visits to America and lest you forget it was with the assistance of Breitbart’s earlier frontman seen here wearing a clone of Nigel Farage’s Arthur Dailey outfit
FARAGE, Nigel  106 DEAD MAN WALKING.
FARAGE, Nigel  105A FALSE PROPHETS
Arthur probably has many more of these passe coats in his lock-up just waiting for aspiring used car salesmen and failed City types!
You will remeber it was this Breitbart goffer who organised Nigel Farage’s catastrophic recent trip to Washington to speak to the all but empty hall for CPAC Delegates
Image result for nigel farage cpac
The relationship between Breitbart and Ukip is no doubt symbiotic as you will no doubt have noted that a book keeper on the odious racist and liar Gerard Batten’s team registered The Tea Party in the UK and that same tedious chappy is on Ukip’s Farage puppet team on the Ukip NEC.
Indeed Mick McGough now that he is no longer covering for his old chum Andrew Smith’s corruption within Ukip and countersigning many of the ‘cash’ cheques from Ukip’s bank accounts would seem to be the errand boy helping to hide Nigel Farage’s excesses and Batten’s apparent duplicity!

Breitbart: A Nest Of Vipers

posted by: Simon Cressy | on: Tuesday, 17 March 2015, 20:14


As election fever ramps up, the fortunes of one political party is unknown until all the votes have been finally counted in May. Simon Cressy takes a look at one of UKIP’s loudest supporters online, Breitbart London.

UKIP are the unknown factor in the 2015 general election, and the predictions of various media outlets vary greatly. Some newspapers predict UKIP will become kingmakers whilst other suggest Farage and co will turn out to be little more than the proverbial flash in the pan. We will find out sooner rather than later.

Whatever the outcome, Farage and the UKIP propaganda machine are working overtime, attempting (with some degree of success) to receive as much favourable media coverage as possible.

In the mainstream press, The Daily Express has become UKIP’s primary mouthpiece, with owner Richard Desmond donating over £300,000 to Farage and his party, not to mention almost complete unfettered and uncritical coverage in the political pages of the right wing newspaper.

Online, the propaganda game is very different for UKIP, with one name coming to the foreground when it comes to promoting UKIP and its Euro sceptic message.

Andrew Breitbart

Andrew Breitbart

The Breitbart News Network is a right wing news website formed in 2007 by the late American conservative publisher and darling of The Tea Party movement Andrew Breitbart.

Andrew Breitbart died suddenly at the age of 43 in 2012 of heart failure. His legacy following his death was the Breitbart website and in 2014 Breitbart launched a London site in parallel with the US equivalent.

James Delingpole

James Delingpole

Breitbart London is run by executive editor James Delingpole. Columnist and well known climate sceptic, Delingpole is also a UKIP member and put his name forward to stand as a UKIP candidate for the European elections in 2014, however he was rejected at the interview stage and deemed unsuitable.

The acerbic Delingpole was forced to apologise to fellow journalist Suzanne Moore in 2013 after making a sexist comment to her on Twitter in support of his friend Toby Young which alluded to her being raped. Delingpole later apologised, an apology that was to be rejected by Moore.

Raheem Kassam

Raheem Kassam

Managing editor of Breitbart London was originally Raheem Kassam. With his fingers in many pies, most of them of the dubious type, Kassam was an organiser for The Tea Party in the UK and has been the Campaigns Director at the neo Conservative Henry Jackson Society since 2010.

Former Conservative, Kassam is also formerly the Executive Editor of The Commentator, a political news and commentary website linked to the Henry Jackson Society. He was sacked by them in 2013 for gross and extreme misconduct following a fall out with Commentator owner Robin Shepherd. The feud between Kassam and Shepherd continues today with the pair still engaged in a bitter war of words on Twitter even as I write this article.

A controversial figure, Kassam has often been described as ‘troublesome’, ‘wildly self-important’ and ‘a professional wind-up merchant’.
Raheem Kassam outraged members of the ethnic minorities by backing racial profiling, claiming that the Security Services should be allowed to single out those who look as if they might follow Islam, on the grounds they are more likely to be involved in terrorism. In an article, he said: ‘Once people who look like me stop blowing themselves up, then I’ll get upset at being profiled. Not before.’ On another occasion, after being accused on social media of ‘flirting with anti-Muslim bigotry’, he responded: ‘I’m a flirtatious kind of guy.’

Raheem Kassam left Breitbart in October 2014 and became a senior aide to UKIP leader Nigel Farage.

A quick search for UKIP articles on the Breitbart website reveals that a large number of the recent stories uploaded is by Beatrice Sanderson.

An relatively unknown name to most people, we can reveal that Beatrice Sanderson is really an alias for Annabelle Fuller, former UKIP press officer and alleged mistress of Nigel Farage.

This is the same Annabelle Fuller that is currently subject of a Metropolitan Police investigation following claims made by the former UKIP spin doctor that she was groped on the balcony of the Westminster flat belonging to the Tory MP Andrew Bridgen.

The North West Leicestershire MP was held in police custody for 10 hours and had his fingerprints and DNA taken, however, police investigating the matter soon established that there was no case and even less evidence and the focus has now been switched onto Fuller, with the prospect of prosecution for perverting the course of justice should the case against the press officer be proven. Metropolitan Police confirmed they interviewed Fuller under caution at the start of 2015 and told the media: ” The Metropolitan Police received information relating to an alleged false claim of sexual assault. The man who was the subject of the allegedly false claim was informed that this has now moved forward into a formal police investigation.”

Bridgen has claimed that the case has wrecked his marriage and has left him with limited access to his young children.

Fuller has denied that she was the mistress of Nigel Farage, despite the fact that former UKIP MEP Nikki Sinclaire used parliamentary privilege in the European Parliament to claim that Fuller was Farage’s lover.

Donna Edmonds

Donna Edmonds

Breitbart London’s European correspondent is Donna Edmunds, a name well known to UKIP watchers. Edmunds is a UKIP councillor on Lewes District Council and is the founder and editor of UKIPDaily.com.

Edmunds, who was also a European candidate in the South East region for UKIP was forced to issue a grovelling apology last year after she made comments online where she said that business owners should have the right to be able to refuse service to homosexuals and women.

She said ” I believe that all business owners, Christian, Muslim, gay, straight, should be allowed to withhold their services from whomever they choose whenever they choose. It’s their business. Why should they be forced to serve or sell to anyone?”

“I’m a libertarian so I don’t think the state should have a role in who business owners serve.”

However, Edmunds received a “slapping down” from her own party chairman, Steve Crowther, who said: Whilst we are a libertarian party this kind of ultra-libertarianism really goes beyond what is acceptable,”

“Society has to have rules and it is certainly not UKIP’s policy to allow people to refuse service to each other on the grounds of race, sexuality etc. This debate has been unhelpful. It is a matter that will be discussed by our NEC.”

Edmunds is no stranger to controversy, especially when it comes to posting comments online. In 2011 she was forced to resign her role as lead councillor for communications in Lewes after she called one of her constituents a “village idiot” on social media. She also received criticism after telling another of her constituents to “pay your taxes to die of cancer if that’s what you want” during an online row about the NHS.

Tom Burnsall

Tom Burnsall

Another regular on Breitbart London is Tom Bursnall, a UKIP NEC member and councillor who sits on Windsor and Maidenhead council. Bursnall hit the headlines after he claimed that the rich should be entitled to more than one vote as they pay more tax.

Writing on his blog, Bursnall said:

“Should people on benefits be allowed to vote? It would be terribly ‘unfair’ of you to give equal representation rights to the chap who contributes 50 times more than the next person. In the same way as if you own 60% of shares of a company, you’ll get 60% of the voting rights at the Annual General Meeting.”

Another controversial name on the Breitbart London roster is chief political correspondent Andre Walker, once a high flier in the Conservative Party and former Chief of Staff to David Morris MP, Walker was forced to resign his position of political advisor at the Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead after he was recorded plotting a smear campaign against his Tory colleague Alison Knight, deputy leader of the council. Walker’s conversation was recorded by a fellow passenger on a London commuter train that Walker was travelling on and uploaded to Youtube.

A number of UKIP officials regularly contribute pro UKIP articles to Breitbart London including Paul Nuttall MEP, Jane Collins MEP and Micheal Heaver. Other names of note include: Nick Hallett, a former Research Fellow from the Young Britons’ Foundation, Ben Harris-Quinney chairman of The Bow Group and Alex Wickham from the Guido Fawkes blog.

With so much UKIP/right wing influence, Breitbart London has become the voice of UKIP on the internet. It’s just not a voice I would want to pay any attention to.

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!

Ukip Still Rigging & Buying Selection & Candidacy – Whether one buys ones position with sex, by renting HMS Belfast or funding a conference for Ukip or by other corrupt means this is a strange way to seek the confidence of voters!

Hi,

Ukip has a long track record of cheats, liars and self serving scoundrels forming their leadership team and staff.

Whether it was the corrupt and duplicitous Douglas Denny obfuscating on behalf of his puppet master Nigel Farage, whom he claims to have clear evidence and proof positive of material that would lead to his prosecution; or the style of obscenities and dishonesty of Annabelle Fuller Nigel Farage’s long term intimate or, for that matter, the boerish and dishonest Mick McGough or Nigel’s sewer rat Mark Croucher or the corrupt and underhand Tory reject Christopher Gill or even the dishonest and corrupt extreme racist Malcolm Pearson – corruption is clearly endemic amongst the ranks of Ukip leadership clique and its claque.

We all experienced the self serving lies of Teflon Tony during the 13 unlucky years of Labour misrule and economic illiteracy – which clearly hasn’t changed, just look at the debacle in the Welsh NHS that outstrips any other of the British EU Regions and which is the only one of the EU’s Mickey Mouse Regions that is under Labour control and you wuill realise just how awesomely catastrophic Ed Milliband and Ed Balls would be in Drowning Street propped up by the odious Alex Salmond and even perhaps Clegg’s motley crew, if it was the only way they felt they could enhance their incomes.

Just why would people want to vote for the equally corrupt overtly racist and undeniably anti homosexual and anti jewish Ukip, to judge by comments of their members and their associates chosen by their leadership!
There is no shortage of proof of the corruption within the self seeking ranks of Ukip and yet again a National newspaper has put its name to a clear act of corruption of any concept of democratic selection as a position is sold to the highest bidder!

UKIP wants disgraced Tory MP Neil Hamilton to stand in General Election

UKIP has hatched a new plot to parachute in disgraced former Tory MP Neil Hamilton to stand for them at the General Election.

He was forced to quit politics 17 years ago after a cash-for-questions probe heard he had taken £25,000 in brown envelopes to lobby Parliament for the then Harrods owner Mohamed al-Fayed.

A leaked top-level report to UKIP’s ruling national executive committee – seen by the Sunday Mirror – recommends he should fight the target marginal seat of Portsmouth South in May.

It is the third potential seat Mr Hamilton has been lined up for. Bids last year to stand in Boston and Skegness, and Basildon were shelved after claims of quarrels over strategy within the party.

He also had to defend himself against allegations of ­questionable expenses claims involving an overnight stay in a flat owned by his wife Christine.

Portsmouth South is held by former Lib Dem Mike Hancock, who was forced to quit his party and become an ­independent after a sex scandal.

A UKIP source claims leader Nigel Farage does not want Mr Hamilton as an MP – but the party’s second biggest donor, spread-betting tycoon Stuart Wheeler, believes he is good for their prospects and has ­threatened to withdraw support if he is not given a seat to fight.

“They have got themselves into a real mess over it,” said the source. “Hamilton is seen by most in the party as ­yesterday’s man, tainted by sleaze.

“Many see him as a reason not to vote UKIP. But Stuart Wheeler is a close friend and that’s where a large chunk of the party’s money comes from.”

In November, UKIP’s head of candidate selection wrote to senior party figures: “It is my recommendation that the National Executive Committee appoint Neil Hamilton as ­Candidate for Portsmouth South. His personal connections with the seat and clear standing in the party make him ideal, and a person who will be welcomed.”

Mr Hamilton, who has labelled the claims about his expenses a “dirty tricks campaign”, said: “It is not appropriate for me to comment.”

The report also says UKIP MEP Janice Atkinson should not be re-selected after calling a Thai constituent “a ting tong”.

Would you vote for Hamilton?

  • YES 14%

  • NO   86%
