Ukip: the last 100 days.

Ukip’s Predictability is more damaging to EUroScepticism than Channel4 was.

Hi,

it does seem that Ukip have lived down to my prediction that their reaction to the Channel4 program would be far more damaging to Nigel Farage’s ambitions than the program itself.

Let us not forget Channel4’s over the top inaccurate love fest of Farage not so long ago.

May I also remind Ukip that for several years I have pointed out that ‘the higher up the tree the monkey climbs the more you see its @rse’, now that Ukip has promoted itself as likely to have excellent results in the upcoming General Election and hold the balance of power – even puting forward the fantasy that Nigel Farage could well become deputy prime minister, they have made themselves a target for lampoon.

There has been an element of the media, whether in a sense of mischief or out of gullibility, who have played to Ukip’s propaganda. Many will be aware the media is struggling having shed the better quality of journalsists and now running entire news rooms staffed by young, inexperienced members better qualified with Google than experience as they copy nes stories from the internet and reprint implausible stories handed to them by PR companies and press offices.

Many of you will remember the slavish poppycock published at Ukip’s Bournemouth conference which was a tissue of lies put out by Annabelle Fuller, one has to ask what was the motivation of the undescerning journalists who published it?

You may well remember one Ukip conference that failed to garner any publicity beyond some lightweight lass at The Times who interviewed Nigel Farage where tjhe most notable factor was his claim that he had lost a testicle.

That Ukip has utterly failed to show any signs of gravitas or even understanding of the issues of how to Leave_The_EU and the conseque4nces is irrefutable. That Ukip is like a sack of ferretts as they all jockey for position angling for more secure positions and jumping ship when they fail makes them prime material for a lampooning docu/drama.

Let us not forget Ukip has made themselves a target for satire buy their aspiration to office whilst failing totally to establish a body of policies that are costed, responsible and plausible.

Consider the fact that Ukip has for 22 years claimed to be opposed to EU membership yet in all that time they have abjectly failed to put forward a clear, responsible, ethical EU eXit and survival strategy.

As the Channel4 program made very clear Ukip has totally failed to even make the point that when Britain leaves the EU the EEA will stiill exist and international trade IS NOT controlled by the EU but the EU is controlled by The WTO and various other bodies.

Ukip has failed to show that there would be no consequential loss of jobs when we leave the EU, the EU could not legally nor would it suit them to harm trade with Britain.

Ukip’s crass incompetence and lightweight self serving dishonesty is probably the greatest threat to EUroScepticism that exists and their failure to act responsibly is the biggest single reason that in a referendum Britain’s best interests are unlikely to be served and Ukip has made it all too easy for the scoundrels seeking to destroy Britain, for their own ends, to implement FUD as Ukip has absolutely zero plausible status or competent policies..

Tuesday 17 February 2015

000a C4-016 UKIP.jpg

The most disturbing thing that came over from the UKIP: The First 100 Days was the facility with which writer-director Chris Atkins was able to make the case for massive job losses following the announcement of the Ukip “government” that Britain was to leave the EU.

That is a reflection of the total failure of Ukip to break the link between membership of the EU and participation in the Single Market. It is also an accurate reflection of the consequences of the sort messy exit that Ukip has on offer.

Thus has the party of “out” allowed itself – even if by default – to be associated with the graphic images presented in the programme, lending more substance to the job loss meme than a thousand hours of Europhile chat shows could ever do.

The association between Ukip and an immigration policy committed to deporting illegal immigrants was also made clear, and – however much the “kippers” might squawk – the consequences of such a policy would involve an aggressive programme of raids and not a little violence.

Where the programme falls down – rather like Ukip policy – is that there was no attempt to explain how Mr Farage’s “government” would manage to deport so many migrants, without first establishing agreements with countries willing to take them. That all previous governments have been unable to do this is one reason why so few have been deported.

Also missing from the fictional scenario is any reference to repealing the Human Rights Act – which might take rather longer than a year, after the repeal Bill had been blocked in the Lords. In real life (not that we are dealing with such an elusive thing) – and in any case during the first 100 days – there would be very few deportations. Most orders would be tied up in endless appeals in the courts.

Thus, the idea that the fictional Deepa Kaur MP would be put on the spot so quickly, with the situation deteriorating to the point where there was rioting in the streets, lacked any credibility whatsoever – entirely in keeping with Ukip’s policies, which are about as fictional as was Chris Atkins’s story line.

Not at all fictional, though, is yesterday’s Guardian/ICM poll which not only put the Conservatives four percent ahead of Labour, but had Ukip going down two points to score a mere nine points, the second poll in a week to put Farage’s party below ten percent.

With Farage’s own personal rating also taking a dive and the Ukip “brand” becoming even more toxic than Labour or Conservative, the “kippers” now seem to be on their way down.

Soon enough, this might even become apparent to the professionals, although Matt Goodwin will probably be the last to realise. But when Ukip does crash and burn at the general election, there will be more than a few pundits marking “UKIP: The First 100 Days” as the turning point.

It won’t be, of course, but it will give “experts” like Goodwin the excuses they need for having missed the downturn that should eventually lead to Ukip’s last 100 days and oblivion.

Douglas Denny The Worm That Both Turns & Wriggles, leaks more information on Nigel Farage and Ukip & the corruption he colluded in for many years.

000a ukip-025 count.png

~~~~~~~~~~#########~~~~~~~~~~
.
Hi,
Alan Sked commented on Nigel Farage’s statement regarding UKIP’s education policy. (Telegraph letters page Friday 13th Feb).

Ukip university bias

SIR – Nigel Farage (Comment, February 12) [CLICK HERE] has promised to scrap tuition fees for students reading maths, sciences, technology, engineering and medicine.

Students in arts and humanities must pay. Presumably Mr Farage – who didn’t go to university – does not value the skills these people acquire: primarily the ability to analyse by weighing up evidence against argument. This skill, of course, allows one immediately to skewer his policies.

Mr Farage’s list will only confirm to educated voters that the man is unfit to be an MP and his party unfit for government.

Professor Alan Sked
Founder of Ukip
London WC2

Douglas Denny in a classic example of ‘The Worm Has Turned’, who having mastered the corruption in Ukip for Nigel Farage over many years – whether rigging elections and selection processes or attacking those who tried to reveal the truth and corruption withing Ukip was the ultimate nerd insider of no consequence and when he had fulfuilled his sordid purpose and was becoming an embarrassment found himself tossed aside.
DENNY, Douglas 03
In pique at the realisation of his own irrelevance he found he was so embroilled in the corruption that it woould seem that to date he has been unwilling to supply the evidence of the corruption and is perpetuating the criminality by his failure of duty to report matters to the authorities – a criminal action in its own right as he is thus in collusion!
However he has tried to sell his story to the media and jhaving failed is now leaking items which are being passed omn to the media. Clearly a man without honour or integrity, who has lacked even the ethics toapologise for his many years of dishonesty and underhand behaviour.
Douglas Denny’s latest piece of sour grapes having been dumped by Nigel Farage and Ukip in almost the same manner he has removed so many of Nigel Farage’s rivals in the past has been passed on to me and is as follows:
I have observed Nigel for nearly seventeen years whilst actively engaged in UKIP, and can assent he is indeed scientifically and technologically illiterate. He has virtually no knowledge in science and technology; cannot even use a computer for the usual applications, and he appears to despise academics or those with higher intelligence than himself with a dismissive wave of the hand. I have seen it happen.
——–

His function and actions as Leader regarding policy is his greatest weakness however, and should be examined closely now we are near to a General Election.

In UKIP’s constitution the development and implementation of policy is the full responsibility of the Leader.
The constitution states:-

….The Party Leader shall give political direction to the Party and shall be responsible for the development of the Party’s policies with the agreement of the NEC.
and: …The Party Leader may, at his discretion, form such advisory groups as he deems appropriate to advise him on any matter pertinent to the exercise of his functions,….
and: …. The Party Leader: …..shall make or approve national statements of the Party’s policies and the manner of their communication.

Mr Farage declared that the last general election manifesto for 2010 was, to put it simply – rubbish. Though he denies it, yet, he was highly involved in it.
I know because I was there. He discussed policy issues in numerous NEC meetings prior to the 2010 election.

On BBC2’s Daily Politics, he disowned the party’s entire 2010 election manifesto after he was asked whether the UK Independence party still wanted to introduce a dress code for taxi drivers, regularly deploy armed forces on the street and repaint trains in traditional colours. His argument that he was not in charge of the party in 2010 as he was just a candidate, saying “I don’t defend the 2010 manifesto. I didn’t put it together”. This is highly disingenuous.

All those at the top of the party then, including myself, know very well he always was very much at the heart of policy and all things in UKIP, including the manifesto, and has been with development and promotion of policy in ALL General Elections. The NEC who finally ratify the manifesto are merely puppets who follow his instructions. I have never known any policy changed in the manifesto when presented to the NEC for ratification. UKIP is a party which very much Mr Farage’s personal fiefdom.

He cannot simply and blithely disown personal responsibility for policy production, as I have seen him directly leading the party for over fifteen years of my being in UKIP, and for over twelve years plus of that I have been in the NEC assisting doing that very thing! Lord Pearson’s very brief stewardship of the party as Leader was more a fig leaf only, as Nigel was still effectively running the party.

Nigel’s denial of involvement in manifesto development nevertheless raises many questions as to his suitability to lead a political party. If he claims he was not involved in the production of the 2010 manifesto – then why not? What an admission if true! …considering he was in fact effectively leading the party from the top previously, and from its very beginning.

And is he going to accept responsibility as Leader now – for the obvious chaos reigning in UKIP at the top for lack of credible policy production; and will he accept his incompetence in having to sack Tim Aker who was charged to develop policy, and who he, Farage, personally promoted for the job in the first place?

I suggest it graphically shows his abilities as a Leader to produce credible policy are severely limited.

Douglas Denny.
Ex-NEC member of UKIP.
Chichester.

I well recall some years ago a challenge was issued to the NEC which Douglas Denny manipulated for Farage and they sheltered behind the claim that the item was not within their jurisdiction but was the responsibility of ‘The Policy Committee’ .
Boxed into something of a corner it was then revealed that the policy committee had only one member and that was Nigel Farage!
Sadly the more one learns about Ukip the more one realises it is merely a vehicle for a small clique, a vehicle without integrity or vision, a one man band
FARAGE, Nigel 94 ORCHESTRATING A DEFECTION 01and if you fall foul of the ambitions of that one man band it takes little time for it to turn on you as Douglas Denny practiced for so many years and then himself fell foul of the band master
FARAGE, Nigel  104it is this quicksand that Ukip is founded on that makes it such a useful dustbin in which the protest vote can be cast when of no consequence like an EU election where the relevance or clout of MEPs is clearly of no consequence or influence – as Ukip have proved by their utter lack of achievement for our country and its freedom.
The treacherous quicksand with its lack of structure and self serving nature is also the reason why Ukip’s support in the polls has collapsed with the latest Ipsos Mori Poll finding they had fallen back to 9% support from their so short lived high!
In ending I once again state that it is the duty and moral obligation of Douglas Denny to hand over the evidence he claims to hold that would lead to Nigel Farage being charged and prosecuted for his corruption and should Douglas Denny fail to aquit his duty in his normal style colluding in corruption I suggest he should be arrested and prosecuted for his criminality.
It is interesting to note that Nigel Farage’s other close confidante Annabelle Fuller having been investigated by the police has had her file passed to The CPS and since she has admitted to theft and other criminal actions charges and prosecutions should be inevitable in the public interest.

Amjad Bashir & Ukip’s Apparent Industrial Abuse of their public office and the public purse – both financial and racist are widespread!

000a ukip-025 count.png

~~~~~~~~~~#########~~~~~~~~~~
.
Hi,
that this site reported the fact that the conference, now in question by Ukip was in something of a collapse since the key note speaker The Grand Muffti of Egypt had withdrawn his support – yet it was not until Amjad Bashir had defected to The Tories that Ukip took any action to censure his expenditure.I presume that like the previous influx of new Ukip MEPs Amjad Bashir and his fellow Ukip MEPs had entered a contract that to ensure their accounts were in order, in the new and complex area of EU allowances and expenses Nigel Farage, their leader, was authorised to ensure, through his own appointed financial overseer, that all accounts were correctly claimed.

We note from the date of the article that it would seem Ukip made no complaint and had no problem with Mr. Bashir’s behaviour, associates or finances; until in a fit of pique they complained to the EU, AFTER he had defected to The Tories!

It is notable that it is reported below that when made aware of the inappropriate nature of a claim, presumably by Nigel Farage’s appointed voverseer, that Mr. Bashir has immediately repaid the wrongly claimed sums.
Let us not forget that Nigel Farage and the then leader of the party Jeffrey Titford were ordered to repay many £1,000s to the EU as was Ukip MEP Graham Booth, also Ukip MEP Derek Clark was ordered to repay somewhere between £30 & £60,000 falsely claimed (about which he regularly lied) – Ukip took no steps to suspend these individuals.
Further Nigel Farage took absolutely no steps to remove Ukip MEP Tow Wise’s membership of the party yet Tom Wise’s embezelling of money from the public purse led to a 2 year custodial sentence, fines, costs and repayment of funds.
Also notable is that neither Nigel Farage nor his cult followers in Ukip have taken any action whatever against his two Ukip MEP’s Stuart Agnew & David Bannerman (Deputy Leader!) who it was admitted on camera by Stuart Agnew were fraudulently obtaining money from the EU for their own gain.
These are not isolated examples in Ukip where such fraud seems endemic, if not encouraged – particularly when you consider the recent media report that the leader of the cult Nigel Farage and his deputy Paul Nuttall draw down an income of £600,000 a year each in salary, expenses and allowances yet have the lowest attendance rates recorded of the over 700 elected MEPs in the EU!
Nor has Nigel Farage or Ukip itself doe anything whatso ever to censure either their MEP Gerard Batten for his apparent hate crimes likely to incite racial abuse based upon Muslims with his irresponsible and seemingly criminal comments, articles and publications nor their House of Lords leader and the past leader of Ukip for Nigel Farage Malcolm Pearson for his well publicised racism particularly against Muslims, including speaking tours in America on behalf of Zionism!
Ukip’s abuse of their public office would indicate they are institutionally corrupt to the core and it would seem to be on an industrial scale!

Exclusive: Tory MEP Reported To Police Over ‘Systematic Financial Fraud’

 
 

The MEP triumphantly paraded by the Conservative Party after defecting from UKIP is revealed to be named in a number of financial scandals.

Yorkshire Euro MP Amjad Bashir, who was pictured with Prime Minister David Cameron, employed lobby group iB Consultants who are alleged to have submitted fraudulent invoices which contained forged taxi receipts.

UKIP, who suspended the politician last month, have confirmed that they believe the taxi company receipt included in the invoice, which is paid from taxpayers money, are false, saying the company confirmed it was “bogus” and have notified West Yorkshire Police. In addition, the company address in Leeds where iB Consultants was registered is none other than the address of the MEP himself, Amjad Bashir. The iB Consultants Web page is also currently registered at Mr Bashir’s address.

Screen Shot 2015-02-12 at 20.51.03

Mr Bashir pays £3700 per month to the firm from his ‘local assistants’ allowance out of a budget which comes straight from British tax payers pockets.

It can also be revealed the same company claimed £8,000 for a ‘Radicalistion of Youth’ conference in London on December 5th, at which the speaker, the Grand Mufti of Egypt, was supposed to appear alongside Archbishop Carey. However, as early as October 2014 the principle speaker had informed iB Consultants that he was not attending.

The invoices for the large sums of money, including flights to and from Pakistan, luxury hotel rooms and the hire of a Mercedes led the European Parliament group, of which UKIP is the largest party, to start investigations. The car was hired from JusTaxi,  of which Mujeeb Bhutto was a Director of for a few months, who was involved in a kidnapping gang.

Screen Shot 2015-02-12 at 20.51.29 Screen Shot 2015-02-12 at 21.09.22

 

In a letter seen by Breitbart London, the group ask Mr Munir, the Director of iB Consultants, about the invoices he submitted on the 19th January which total £8,108.19.  They include flights for a Mohiuddin Hussain, who was unknown to the group, and lacked boarding cards, tickets and any proof that the company expended the money in the first instance.

They also asked about two hotel rooms costing £499 each for the cancelled conference which, the letter states, ‘look like booking confirmations’ rather than invoices. They asked Mr Bashir, ‘who stayed in these rooms? Were they paid and by whom? Surely you cancelled these? Please send proof of payment’.

Further questioned payments include a ‘Topa Travel’ invoice for two air tickets with no further details of the journey including no passenger names or what position they held. Once again, the invoice was submitted with no boarding cards, tickets or proof that the invoice was ever paid.

The company also submitted an invoice for cost of the invitations to the conference without ever providing a copy of one to prove they were produced, nor did they provide a list of who was invited to the conference or proof that the Grand Mufti had originally accepted the invitation.

Mr Hookem, UKIP MEP for Yorkshire and the Humber, described Mr Bashir as “a huge embarrassment for the Tory Party.”

He has written to the Temporary Chief Constable of West Yorkshire Police, Dee Collins, reporting what he calls ‘systematic financial fraud by Amjad Bashir, MEP for Yorkshire and the Humber’.

He defended the party’s acceptance of Mr Bashir – even when documents revealed that the Party Chairman Steve Crowther knew about the allegations surrounding Mujeeb Bhutto, saying, “UKIP have a clear policy on wrong doing – once we find out we kick them out.”

“In his eagerness to get one over on UKIP, ‘Cast Iron’ Dave has become ‘Desperate Dave’,” said Mr Hookem, “taking in a damaged political tourist without performing the necessary checks.”

“Surely the Tory Party cannot keep Amjad Bashir as a member after these damning revelations,” he said, adding, “Bashir’s service provider submitted a bogus taxi receipt,  was rumbled and then withdrew all receipts and paid back all monies immediately.  Amjad’s team have failed to answer our serious questions.”

Mr Bashir, who has been in four different political parties in the UK, is a public supporter of the MQM party in Pakistan which is classed as a terrorist organisation in both Canada and the US.

In a UKIP local candidate selection meeting in Bradford two weeks ago, convicted kidnapper Mujeeb Bhutto turned up with Amjad Bashir’s chief of staff Hassan Munir the Director of iB Consultants Ltd.  A UKIP member in the West Yorkshire area said that it “set off alarm bells|” amongst members. Mr Bhutto, who was formerly a member of the Conservative Party, had been featured on the BBC’s Newsnight for his involvement in a Pakistani kidnapping gang which demanded £50,000 from the victim’s family. Despite the party informing Mr Bashir that Mr Bhutto was not welcome at any UKIP events, the pair were frequently seen together including at an MQM event in London on July 20th last year.

A Conservative Party Spokesman told Breitbart London that they would respond to our questions regarding Mr Bashir’s continued membership of the party “in the morning.”

Mr Bashir has previously responded to the UKIP allegations saying, “There is not a shred of truth in any of the claims but it has made me more convinced than ever that I made the right decision.”

Nigel Farage’s pinstriped image belies modest City career

Leader of Britain's UK Independence Party (UKIP) and member of the European Parliament (MEP) Nigel Farage speaks during an interview with Reuters in Brussels February 3, 2015. Labor leader Ed Miliband is the top target of the UKIP in this year's British general election because of his refusal to back a referendum on leaving the European Union, Farage said on Tuesday.

Ukip in the City: Nigel Farage followed his father into the Square Mile, where he found support for his anti-EU stance

Nigel Farage has become one of Britain’s most successful politicians, yet an examination by the Financial Times of his earlier years reveals that the man who has traded on his pinstriped City gent image had a relatively modest career in the Square Mile. One of his metals broking companies ended up insolvent.

“This suggestion that he was a very wealthy man in the City is probably a bit of a misnomer,” one metals broker says. “I don’t think he was anywhere near as successful as some people are portraying. He probably does better out of being an MEP.”

Mr Farage has City culture in his blood: his father Guy Justus Oscar Farage was a well-known, hard-drinking stockbroker and his brother Andrew became a broker on the London Metal Exchange.

The young Nigel chose to skip university and follow his father into the City after finishing his studies at Dulwich College, a private school in southeast London. In 1982, he joined Maclaine Watson, a traditional English commodities brokerage.

Margaret Thatcher’s Big Bang deregulation transformed the City almost as soon as Mr Farage started. The smoky offices of Maclaine Watson were taken over by Wall Street brokerage Drexel Burnham Lambert just before Mr Farage entered. He later moved to another English broker, R J Rouse & Co, which was acquired by the French bank Crédit Lyonnais, again ending its independence. He was asked to leave Crédit Lyonnais Rouse after taking a drunken friend on to the floor of the LME following a long lunch. He then started his own business, Farage Futures, in 1994. The small operation helped broker orders on the exchange for clients. He gave one share to his mother Barbara Stevens who was listed as secretary, records show.

“He was a natural-born salesman,” recalls Alex Heath, a fellow broker. “Setting up on your own requires backing and it requires people who believe in you and Nigel is very good at getting people to believe in him.”

Companies House records show that in 1995, the year after it was founded, Mr Farage made profits of £106,000. During its eight-year life, Farage Futures made total net profits of £874,000 and Mr Farage held 99 per cent of the shares.

“He had a successful brokerage. Was he one of the other ones where everyone starts asking: ‘Hmmm, so you’ve got your own helicopter?’ No, he wasn’t one of those,” says another person who worked with the company.

At Farage Futures’ offices, cigarette smoke hung 4ft from the floor as staff worked in their shirtsleeves, using two telephones at a time, according to one metals veteran.

Nigel’s personality is what makes him stand out from the rest of the world . . . it sets him apart as a politician

Brokers remember a gentlemanly atmosphere on the LME during the 1980s and 1990s. But those who made more money traded on the Liffe derivatives market.

“People were reasonably well paid, but my guess is that there were people in the Liffe market who were throwing much more money around than the LME,” says a broker who worked with Farage in the 1980s.

In dark wood-panelled pubs, such as the Jamaica Wine House and Simpson’s Tavern, in narrow stone streets near the City’s Leadenhall Market, Mr Farage spent his career drinking with the tight-knit fraternity that traded on the LME. Many of them were sympathetic with his views opposing the EU.

It was during this period that Mr Farage met his now wife Kirsten Mehr, a government bond trader, while on a trip to Frankfurt; they married in 1999.

The sense of nostalgia for a lost age was summed up by Farage senior. While in a lift with Sir Nicholas Goodison, the chairman of the London Stock Exchange at the time of the Big Bang, he is reported to have lamented: “You’ve ruined the best gentleman’s club in the world.” The 127-year-old LME ended up being sold to Hong Kong Exchanges and Clearing in 2012, a sale Mr Farage opposed publicly.

Among LME brokers, many remember how Mr Farage’s involvement in a “Save the Pound” campaign in the early 1990s was supported by many on the metals exchange, who helped him raise money and wore pins on their lapels.

“If you want to find sympathy for his views all you have to do is stand in the middle of the City of London and say: ‘Who thinks Brussels is a complete waste of time money and effort?’ and you’ll get lots very quickly,” one metals trading veteran who worked with Mr Farage says. “You’re preaching to the converted.”

The UK’s main political parties are facing the prospect of a close and unpredictable national poll on May 7 as they struggle to address the march of the populists

Another blow to the old City world came in a series of rogue trading scandals that Mr Farage managed to avoid. In the late 1990s, Japan’s Sumitomo Corporation revealed losses of $1.8bn because of a rogue copper trader, Yasuo Hamanaka, who was well known on the LME. He had traded with Crédit Lyonnais Rouse at the time Mr Farage was there.

“I think he was more angry at that time about the fraud and everything that surrounded it because it gave the markets a bad name. He’s always been a very City-oriented chap,” says Steven Spencer, an industry veteran.

Mr Farage’s next broking venture was less successful. In 2003 he joined forces with his brother and another metals broker, Daniel Gillespie, to found Farage Limited, a commodities broker. That company ended up insolvent. In September 2014 it was in the process of paying back £33,000 in owed taxes. Mr Farage remained a director until February 2011, records filed at Companies House show.

But if Mr Farage’s City career was modest, his subsequent political success cannot be disputed. Under his leadership, the UK Independence party has gone from mocked fringe group to a serious poll contender that won more votes and seats in the European Parliament elections last year than any other British party.

“Nigel’s personality is what makes him stand out from the rest of the world. He’s a very quick thinker . . . his ability to see what people want to know,” says another metals broker. “I think it sets him apart as a politician. That’s why he has been as successful as he has.”

Neither Mr Farage nor Ukip would comment on his City career for this article.

Guest Post – Peter North:
Fisks Ukip’s banal list of 100 policies, published as a forerunner to their Manifesto launch, subsequent to the apparent firing of Nigel Farage’s selected El Supremo Tim Aker MEP!

It gives 100 Reasons Not To Vote For Ukip in May

000a ukip-025 count.png

~~~~~~~~~~#########~~~~~~~~~~
.
Hi,when Ukip published their banal list of 100 items as a guide to their delayed Manifesto I had intended to fisk it but time overtook me and it seems pointless now, with less than 100 days to go to election day.

An even better excuse for not doing the job is that amongst other examples Peter has fisked each item more than adequately and in a manner with which I agree.

Thanks Peter ;-))

100 reasons to ignore Ukip

Back in May, and many times since, I have remarked that “Ukip has nothing of any great substance, and even though we are promised a manifesto, I expect it will be the same rag-bag of parish suggestions box entries picked out of a tombola with no unifying theme. And as if on cue, we get 100 reasons to vote Ukip in the absence of actual policies. Mystic North strikes again! I’m not going to rubbish all of them since some of these random scattergun statements are desirable outcomes or policy instruments, but without context, they mean nothing. Let’s have a look at them shall we?

1. Get Britain out of the European Union

On this we are agreed. But this isn’t a policy. This is an ambition. As we have discovered, it ain’t simple, it ain’t quick and it will need an alternative. There are no magic wands and if you think it’s a simple process, you simply don’t understand what the EU is. Here I remind readers that Ukip does not have a Brexit policy.   

2. Get control of immigration with an Australian-style, points-based immigration system

State bureaucrats second guessing the human resources needs of UK plc. What could possibly go wrong? Never mind that quota based systems can result in a net increase in immigration and that there is no evidence it could work for Britain since we are an entirely unique nation with entirely different geography. Ukip has failed to explain why their idea, plucked out of the air, would work, when successive administrations have failed in light of the complexities, costs and international treaty obligations. And in any case, we already have a points based system – and have since 2008. 

3. £3bn more, annually, into our NHS which desperately needs it

From where exactly? And who says the NHS actually needs it? Could it just be that the pressure could be taken off the NHS by fixing the GP system and adult social care? Maybe, we don’t know, because Ukip hasn’t done any thinking on this. This link is where a Ukip policy should be looking.

4. Scrap tuition fees for students studying Science, Tech, Engineering, Maths, or Medical degrees

Sounds good in principle. But who is going to pay? Are we looking at tax funded university or are we looking at tax breaks for industry to finance them? Is it tied in with a broader industrial strategy? If so, what would that look like? And what about the creative arts? Multimedia technology might sound like a non-degree, but the games industry is not one we can afford to ignore.   

5. Pay greater attention to elderly care across the country

Is this a policy or a sneeze?

6. Cutting £9bn from our foreign aid budget

And what then do we fund overseas projects with, some of which are essential to slowing and managing immigration. It has been clear throughout that Ukip doesn’t understand what aid is or what it is even for

7. Give the people the ability to “recall” their MPs, without parliamentary or MP approval

This is one of Dougie Carswell’s ideas which failed to pass while he was a Tory and given the state of voter engagement there is actually very little evidence this would be used often, if at all. It’s easy to fill a online petition with a few thousand signatures, but less easy to do it in a constituency. This really shows us just how shallow Ukip and Carswell are. We do have a big problem with our democratic deficit. It will require a range of integrated measures to tackle and this is just tinkering around the edges with bits of parliamentary procedure. Democratic reform ought to be a central pillar of a supposedly anti-establishment party – but it curiously is not. 

8. Stopping our endless, foreign wars

You mean the ones that recently ended? How about a democratic mechanism to stop us getting sucked into them? No?

9. Promoting a British identity, as opposed to failed multiculturalism

How? And what does this achieve? And what is a British identity? How are you defining it?

10. Allowing existing schools to become grammar schools

And what do we do with the schools that don’t?

11. Ending PFI privatisation of the NHS, proliferated by Labour and the Tories

Ok, so we’re ripping up contracts now. What do we replace it with? In some places, it works.

12. Ensuring our armed services are properly equipped for when we do need them

Every government and every party has said that. What matters is the detail. As we outline here, that’s not so easy. 

13. Establishing a Veteran’s Administration to look after those who looked after us

Like the well funded and competent SAAFA?

14. Encouraging inward investment with growth markets, not JUST the failing Eurozone

How? This is a sentiment, not a policy.

15. Overcoming the unfairness of MPs from devolved nations voting on English laws

How? Got a policy?

16. Cutting bureaucracy, red tape, and wasteful spending from government departments

Which bureaucracy, which red tape, what wasteful spending? Easy to say, harder to do.

17. Cutting the same bureaucracy that hinders small businesses and entrepreneurs

What like?
 
18. Supporting our farmers with a Single Farm Payment Scheme

How would that differ from the one which already exists and is presently in use?

19. Ending the burdensome “green levies” that have added £000s to our energy bills

My energy bill doesn’t exceed £1000. And some of those green levies go toward better insulation which means we don’t have to build a new power station. So which “green levies” are we talking about?

20. Scrapping the poorly planned HS2 project, saving up to £50bn

How is NOT spending money a saving?  As in, I’ve decided not to buy a £250,000 Rolls Royce, so I’ve “saved” £250,000 … ? But do what instead to ease pressure on existing transport infrastructure?

21. Opposing tolls on public roads – we’ve already paid for them

Oppose who? Presumably, you’d be in government, so who would you oppose? Who is suggesting road tolls? Why is a digital tolling scheme necessarily worse than the road tax scheme we presently have? Variable peak prices could reduce congestion.

22. Supporting bus passes for pensioners with the support of local authorities

This already happens. Presumably Ukip wants to expand that. How is that paid for?

23. Foreign vehicles to require Britdisc passes to contribute to our roads they use

Won’t that make imported goods more expensive?

24. Ending the use of speed cameras as revenue raisers – they should be a deterrent

They are. Most of them are now switched off because they cost too much to run and administrate. The rest of them serve as part of active traffic management systems. This might have been a popular policy in 1992, but this is not 1992.  

25. Protecting our green belt

What with? A home defence force? Or are we talking abut planning? If so, what is Ukip’s planning policy and how does it propose to solve the housing shortage and affordability gap? Y’need a policy!

26. A central list of brownfield sites for developers

Like the one that already exists? And why should it be central? I thought Ukip favoured localism?

27. Houses on brownfield sites to be Stamp Duty exempt on first sale

There’s usually a good reason why brownfield sites remain inactive. Often ground contamination from previous use. It will take a lot more than stamp duty exemption. It will require a complete overhaul of the environmental impact assessment laws.

28. VAT relaxed for redevelopment of brownfield sites

See above. – and new build is already VAT exempt. Not forgetting that VAT is an EU tax and so we would be perfectly at liberty to abolish VAT if we wanted to.

29. Local referenda for large-scale development, if triggered by 5% of electorate

I am all in favour of more direct democracy, but this seems divorced from any context. It ought to be a part of a broader package of democratic reforms, but it’s just hanging there, apropos of nothing. Where’s the policy?

30. Introducing the ability for citizens to initiate national referenda

This is the closest Ukip gets to a big idea. But there needs to be safeguards against minority interest self-selection and mob rule. Referendums are not necessarily always an expression of public will. We will need to see details from Ukip. Which have not been forthcoming on this, or anything else.

31. Withdrawing from the European Court of Human Rights

And replace with what? Human rights are good. Fair trials and free speech and such.

32. Reversing the government’s opt-in to the European Arrest Warrant

What’s the point if Ukip wants to scrap the EAW?

33. Negotiating bi-lateral agreements to replace EAW

Easier said than done, I find.

34. No votes for prisoners

So we deprive them of liberty of as a punishment, but deprive them of a voice? I guess this is a matter of personal taste.

35. Full prison sentences should be served, parole on case-by-case basis

That is actually a logical inversion. What is the point of case-by-case parole if full prison sentences are to be served?

36. Replacing the Human Rights Act with a British Bill of Rights

And what would be on that bill of rights? Who would write it?

37. Official documents to be published primarily in English

Like they are now? 

38. Cracking down on honour killings, female genital mutilation, and forced marriages

I wasn’t aware the police were going easy on honour killings. They tend to be quick off the mark on murder. Does Ukip have evidence to the contrary? If so, that’s a very serious allegation and ought to be a central campaign issue. As to forced marriages, that is largely something an aspect of immigration with Asians returning to their place of origin to get married. What is Ukip’s immigration policy, beyond vague aspirations that is? 

39. Reviewing the BBC license fee with a view to reducing it

To what? Why is Ukip different fro the Tories on this?

40. Taking non-payment of the license fee out of the criminal sphere

You mean make it a civil debt so people then end up with a CCJ and unable to borrow, and have bailiffs banging at their door instead? Doesn’t sound like progress to me. Have another think. 

41. Amend the smoking ban to promote choice for ventilated smoking rooms

Oh honestly, who cares anymore? Any pub that was going under because of the smoking ban has done already. Pubs are nicer without smoker. I say that as a smoker. It’s not a big deal. 

42. Opposing plain packs for cigarettes, which has had no impact where trialled

Well, it took to number 42 before we got to any hint of sense, but it’s hardly earth shattering.

43. Promoting the employment of young, British workers

How? That’s a vague ambition, not a policy.

44. Repealing the Agency Workers Directive

And replace it with what? This is an interesting one. One must first examine why the directive exists. It is a regulatory response to a long standing problem of rolling six month contracts, largely as a product of previous labour market interventions. AWD is merely another hammer-blow in a game of regulatory whack-a-mole. Ukip clearly doesn’t recognise this otherwise it would have offered a more substantial policy that gets to the root of the issue.

45. Encouraging councils to provide more free parking on High Streets

I’ll let Jackart in his inimitable style address this one. It’s a stupid policy by stupid people who aren’t interested in policy. And it will take more than that to revive the high street.Does Ukip have a policy on that?

46. Simplifying planning regulations for long-term empty commercial properties

Why not just devolve planning policy to councils? You’re all about localism, aren’t you?

47. Extending the right of appeal for micro businesses against Revenue and Customs

In what circumstances? Apropos of what?

48. Negotiating bespoke trade agreements with EU member states and worldwide

Erm, see the thing about the EU is we can’t negotiate with individual EU member states. The EU doesn’t work like that. That’s why eurosecptics want to leave it! That’s where it would help to have a Brexit policy! But Ukipists told us they didn’t need one! Doh! Here we have an anti-EU party that doesn’t EVEN know how the EU works. What are we paying Ukip MEPs for?

49. Reoccupying our seat at the World Trade Organisation

Well that’s kinda implied by way of leaving the EU. That’s why eurosceptics want to leave.What do we do when we get there?

50. Abolishing inheritance tax

Fine fair enough. But that’s £4bn you’ll have to cut when you just said you’ll spend 3bn extra on the NHS.

51. Introducing a 35p income tax rate between £42,285 and £55,000 – taking many public sector workers out of top rate of tax

Is this costed? That’s going to mean some major cuts. What are you cutting? The foreign aid budget can only be spent once over.

52. Setting up a Treasury Commission to make sure big corporations pay their way in taxes

Here is some pretty typical Ukip ignorance. Many of these corporations are not based in the UK. They use freedom of capital rules to evade taxes. This is an international problem that requires an international solution, not least as part of a Brexit policy. Ukip doesn’t have one.  

53. Abolishing the Dept of Energy and Climate Change and rolling retained functions into DEFRA

So we’d then have a mega-ministry that looks after power stations and cattle and rivers. Why? Where is the logic?

54. Introducing an Apprenticeship Qualification for students who don’t want to do non-core GCSEs

What does Ukip think core GCSEs are? And how will an apprentice fare without them?

55. Scrapping the arbitrary 50% target for university attendance

This is one of Tony Blair’s most damaging policies. That’s why the Tories got rid of it almost immediately. Which tells us this entire list of “policies” is a cut and paste from obsolete material. Did Ukip even read their 100 reasons before publishing them?

56. Students from the EU to pay the same as International Students

Who said they don’t? And isn’t itimplied that by leaving the EU, all students would be categorised as international students?

57. Introducing more power for parents: OFSTED to investigate schools on petition signed by 25% of parents or governors

Governors can already demand an inspection.Parents only need petition governors.

58. Guaranteeing a job in the police, prison, or border forces for anyone who has served 12 years in the Armed Forces

So if you’ve done 12 years in the logistic corps, you get to be a policeman? No thanks.

59. Priority social housing for ex-service men and women, and those returning from service

They already get a very generous resettlement grant and tuition fee subsidy.

60. Veterans to receives Veteran’s Card to ensure they’re supported in event of mental health care and more

In the event of mental health care? The biggest problem is veterans not seeking help. That is why they end up homeless.You need a comprehensive veteran care policy. Where is it?

61. All entitlements to be extended to servicemen and women recruited from overseas

Stupid and mega stupid.  The whole point of separate arrangements is to encourage serving officers to return to their nation of origin, with a service pension as a means of international development. There are clear developmental advantages to remittances, but a retired officer class is an export of an administrative class that can help build good governance – and is a means of exporting our values. This is precisely what the Gurkhas were for, and extending entitlements to all means we now have to allow them residence along their families as well. Not very sensible for a party that wants to control immigration.

62. Establishing a National Service Medal for all those who have served

So if you’ve done 12 years in the catering corps, you get a medal?This cheapens the very idea of medals. They are given out for distinguished service. What is the point of this policy?

63. Encouraging local authorities to buy out their PFI contracts where affordable

Paid for with what? You’re massively cutting income tax, remember?

64. Ensuring GP’s surgeries are open at least one evening per week where demand permits

That’s one of the few things I’m not inclined to argue with. But there are contractual problems that means the GP service requires a complete redesign. Where is Ukip’s policy? Why does Ukip assume it can succeed in reforming it? Ukips health spokesperson, Louise Bours, admits “Honestly, I have no experience in health whatsoever”.

65. Ensuring migrants have NHS-approved health insurance until they have paid into the system for 5 years

So the NHS will need a whole new bureaucracy to approve all international health insurance products and a recovery department to chase international debts. This presumably means more delays and checks at ports. I don’t think they’ve thought this through.

66. Ending hospital car parking charges

Will likely result in less parking availability. It usually does.

67. Replacing bureaucratic watchdogs with locally elected health boards for more transparency

Can anybody honestly say that elected police commissioners have improved policing? Given the turnout at the recent PCC election in South Yorkshire, it is clear there is little public support for what are essentially overpaid press officers. Elections do not automatically equate with greater accountability or democracy.

68. Stopping the sale of patient data to big business

So Ukip opposes the sale of data from which extrapolations can be made which could improve drugs and patient care. They neglect to say why. There is a need to safeguard privacy, but we don’t want to miss out on the possible benefits of big data insights. You can complain about the shoddy way the government set about it with automatic opt-ins but let’s not throw the baby out with the bath water.

69. Ensuring a high standard of English speakers in the NHS

Who says they don’t, apart from bigoted Ukipists?

70. Amend working time rules to give trainee doctors, surgeons, and medics better environments

Amend to what? Got a policy?

71. Encouraging and protecting whistle-blowing to get to the bottom of poor performance

This is not an unfair thing to say, but poor service delivery is a recurrent theme in British news with the same systemic common defects. Our corporate scale councils and local services are losing touch, are unaccountable and out of control. It will take more than whistle blowers to fix it. You’d need a comprehensive policy based on a detailed and evidence driven analysis. Something Ukip lacks the talent and mental architecture for.

72. Ensuring migrants have jobs and accommodation before they can come to the UK

Not unreasonable. But how will this be enforced? And what will it cost to enforce it? Got a policy?

73. Migrants will only be eligible for residency after 10 years’ working here

Migrants or asylum seekers? If migrants, what is the rationale for keeping them in limbo? Either they qualify for citizenship or they don’t. Does Ukip even know the difference?

74. Reinstating the primary purpose rule, bringing an end to sham marriage migration

The primary purpose rule barred entry into the UK for thousands of people married to British citizens. It was dropped. The then Home Secretary, Jack Straw, said it was being ended because “it is arbitrary, unfair and ineffective and has penalised genuine cases, divided families and unnecessarily increased the administrative burden on the immigration system.” He was right then, and he’s right now.

75. No amnesty for illegal immigrants, or those gaining UK passports via fraud

Amnesties are generally a bad thing. They encourage people to try their luck and disappear into the woodwork until there is one. But we do need a policy to deal specifically with illegal immigrants. Thus far, Ukip doesn’t have one.

76. Protecting genuine refugees by returning to the UN Convention of Refugees principles

The UN Convention is the problem, creating asylum seekers who cannot be returned or ejected. I thought Ukip didn’t want that? We need either to renegotiate the Convention or withdraw from it. You’d need a detailed policy.

77. British companies to be prioritised to deliver foreign aid contracts

I’d rather companies delivering best value for money were prioritised. I want value for money and transparency.

78. Repealing the Climate Change Act 2008 which costs the economy £18n per year

No arguments there. But a cut of £18bn doesn’t pay for all Ukip’s ring-fences and extra spending.  

79. Scrapping the Large Combustion Plant directive and redevelop UK power stations

We would do that by way of leaving the EU. It is an EU directive. This actually makes little difference since we have already closed, or have started to wind down LCPD affected plant which was due for renewal anyway. It’s ancient. Does Ukip even have an up to date energy policy? 

80. Supporting the development of UK Shale Gas with proper safeguards

Rather a bland statement. As it happens, shale isn’t the big deal anybody thought it was for the UK, not least with oil prices now collapsing. There is something new on the horizon that we have heard nothing about from Ukip.

81. No new taxpayer subsidy for wind farms

What about addressing the old ones?

82. Leaving the Common Agricultural Policy

This is actually a consequence of leaving the EU. CAP is part of the EU. And what do we do instead? The EU will continue to subsidise food producers, so to compete, we will have to subsidise ours. You have already said you would keep the Single Farm Payment, but what is the rest of the CAP replaced with? You’d need a Brexit policy. 

83. Allowing parliament to vote on GM foods

It can already do that. If it so chooses.

84. Reinstating British territorial waters

That is implied by leaving the EU. But what about management of those waters where British fleets have sold their quotas to foreign trawlers? You’d need a Brexit policy. And a fisheries management policy for that matter.

85. Food to be labelled with country of origin, method of production, method of slaughter and more

Like it does already? The problem is not labeling, but an epidemic of food fraud. You’d need international co-operation to deal with it, thus a comprehensive policy on trade.

86. Ban live animal exports for slaughter

Why? Is this just one of those feel-good populist policies?

87. Scrapping the Bedroom Tax

The “bedroom tax” is as much about reintegrating people from remote for industrial communities into the economy rather than warehousing them on benefits. It could use a little tweaking to make it fairer to the disabled, but it is a useful tool in the box to tack embedded and long term welfare dependency. It might be popular to say you’ll scrap it, but you also have to state what you would do instead. 

88. Child benefit only for children permanently resident in the UK

Not unreasonable.

89. Future child benefit to be limited to first two children only

I wouldn’t argue with that, but it would be just one measure in a full programme of welfare reform. That would require a policy. Where is it?

90. Ensuring an initial presumption of 50-50 parenting on child custody matters

The childrens’ welfare is paramount. The presumption is that the birth mother is best suited – and usually is. But this is why we have a family court system. That needs an overhaul. So where is Ukip’s policy?

91. Safeguarding visitation rights for grandparents

So the state is overriding parents judgement now?

92. Supporting a streamlined welfare system and a benefit cap

Like the Tories do already? What is Ukip’s welfare policy?

93. Enrolling unemployed benefits claimants into workfare or community schemes

Like the Tories do already? What would Ukip do differently?

94. Placing revenues from shale gas into a Sovereign Wealth Fund to ensure future growth and security

How much will this generate? There isn’t a big UK dash for shale gas. 

95. Emphasising the immediate need to utilise forgotten British infrastructure like Manston Airport

Why is there an immediate need if it has been forgotten? And it certainly doesn’t look like Manson has been forgotten if you Google it. What on earth does this even mean?

96. No cuts to frontline policing

That ship has already sailed. The police have already been cut, but numbers is not the problem. It’s policing policy. Does Ukip have a police policy?

97. Prioritising social housing for those whose parents and grandparents were born locally

So basically immigrants will be excluded from social housing?

98. Reaffirming British laws, rather than allowing dual-track legal systems for minorities in the UK

Will this mean abolishing Beth Din for Jews, or does this just apply to Muslims?

99. Promoting patriotism and the importance of British values in our schools

What are those British values? How will you promote them? Got a policy? 

100. Rebalancing Britain’s economy

To what? What does that even mean?

Conclusion:

Last time I gave Ukip a good fisking I concluded as thus:

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again. This is a party that has no great vision. What we see above is ill thought out guesswork by Ukip, a patchwork with no unifying thread of thought, gaping holes, no applied expertise, no detail, no philosophy and not even a systematic approach to policy making. It is wholly superficial stuff, tinkering with the status quo on the basis of populist sentiment, which is no way to govern a country.

No doubt the Ukipist reaction to this post will be to say that the other party manifestos are equally amateurish and stupid. This is probably true. Were I so inclined I could have a field day driving a horse and cart through a Labor manifesto – and as for the Lib Dems, such would be beyond reasonable analysis and beyond satire. But the crucial distinction is this: Ukip professes to be something different. It isn’t.

Party politics has degenerated into two bald men fighting over a comb, each chasing a marginal constituency of floating voters based on what carries over well in the media. So what if anything in the above makes Ukip distinctive apart from a vaguely defined ambition to leave the EU?

One thing that has plagued politics since 1997 is the steady stream of soundbite announcements dressed up as policy, keeping the churnalists and twitterers fed – and rather than pushing a vision, politics is all done on premise of “fly the flag and see who salutes”.  Enter Ukip doing exactly the same with no real agenda for change, no real idea of what they want – and not the first idea how to get it done.

You don’t have to be a policy analyst to see that no real thought has gone into Ukip’s policy making. This is back of fag packet stuff. We’re a matter of months from a general election and Ukip don’t know what they stand for – but expect us to believe they are an alternative. We can only assume that Ukip takes us for fools too. 

The only thing I would add is that we were since promised that Ukip would get its act together and wunderkind Tim Aker would deliver the goods. If this is all Ukip has to offer, a mere 100 days from the election, then it becomes clearer that Aker was sacked after all. And rightly so. And since Suzanne Evans is responsible for releasing this garbage as current campaign material, she should resign.

Another Ukip Candidate Dumped For Nigel Farage – Well it is his personal fiefdom, banker and vehicle for ‘glory’, as he hands out jobs to drinking chums and lady friends, sycophants and his claque, often on inflated incomes.

.

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

Hi,
yet again it seems Nigel Farage chucks out a long term Ukip candidate, selected by the local constituency party, in favour of HIS chum parachuted in to be the candidate of HIS party – more often than not some drinking buddy with a Tory background.
Ukip is, it seems, controlled with all the finesse of the old style Soviet Polit Bureaux with Kangaroo Court show trials, fixers, pals parachuted into office, political executions, corruption and extreme sycophancy – All totally without principles, ethics or any hint of democracy.
All carried out by a self serving leader who without any principles rewards his claque and runs his fiefdom with an iron fist forever blaming anyone but himself for his ineptitude and ensuring his fingerprints never appear on the murder weapons. Such as in the murder of Laventiy Beria and even the probable poisoning of Jo Stalin.
A role model for control followed by Hitler, Mussolini, Franco and now it seems Nigel Farage though in the latter case seemingly using and abusing others through his inept placement staff and abuse of the courts and ‘useful’ police supporters (no doubt party members likely to be ex BNP supporters).

Goggleboxgate: Ukip candidate’s fury as he is ousted from key seat for star of hit C4 show

  • Gogglebox’s Andrew Michael chosen as Hastings and Rye Ukip candidate
  • Ralph Atkinson claims he was kicked out in favour of the Channel 4 star
  • He vented his anger in a leaked email that was sent to local party members 
  • Also condemned Ukip’s policy of recruiting defecting Tories and celebrities

Nigel Farage was last night accused of recruiting ‘toffs for the top’ of Ukip after a candidate in a key target seat expressed fury that he had been ousted in favour of a star of the TV programme Gogglebox.

Andrew Michael, a wealthy, retired hotelier who features on the Channel 4 programme, has been parachuted in as Mr Farage’s candidate in Hastings and Rye, where the sitting Tory MP holds a wafer-thin majority.

Now the deposed candidate has given vent to his anger in a leaked email to local party members in which he condemns Ukip’s policy of recruiting defecting Tory MPs and celebrities. Ralph Atkinson calls on Ukip members to bombard Mr Farage with complaints about his treatment, and claims that his party boasts ‘standards of democracy lower than the unelected European Commission’.

Scroll down for video

The row has blown up just days before Mr Farage will be seen in an alcohol-fuelled encounter with two other stars of the hit show, in which viewers watch people watching television. 

Steph and Dom Parker have been filmed knocking back glasses of wine and champagne with Mr Farage for a TV special which ends with the Ukip leader falling over, smashing a glass and having to borrow a pair of his host’s trousers.

Row: Ralph Atkinson claims that he was kicked out in favour of Mr Michael. He has vented his anger in an email to local Ukip party members

Mr Michael, 55 – whose Gogglebox appearances with his wife Carolyne and two of their four children have included discussions about whether Ukip is racist – was selected for the seat last week shortly after Mr Atkinson was removed in a coup which he says was orchestrated by the party’s head office. 

In the email, seen by The Mail on Sunday, Mr Atkinson complains that he has ‘apparently been removed as Hastings & Rye Prospective Parliamentary Candidate’, and says sarcastically, in reference to the recent by-election victories of ex-Tories Douglas Carswell and Mark Reckless: ‘Obviously potential candidates who have defected from the Conservatives will be preferred to long-term party members. This is in line with party policy which is to recruit more ‘‘toffs for the top’’ in order to win votes from the disenfranchised working-class voters, who exist in great numbers here’.

Mr Atkinson, a former Ukip spokesman on immigration, adds: ‘Any person wishing to complain in a civilised fashion about this situation should send to [he gives Mr Farage’s private email address].’

Hastings, which is held by Tory MP Amber Rudd with a majority over Labour of under 2,000, is number 54 on Ukip’s ‘hitlist’ of Conservative-held seats. Mr Michael is filmed for Gogglebox at his £1.5 million house, which, far from being in the Hastings constituency, is in Brighton. In one recent edition, Mr Michael, who is of Greek-Cypriot origin, discussed the alleged racism of Ukip’s ‘calypso’ song with his family. At one point his children laugh sarcastically: ‘Wouldn’t want anyone thinking Ukip is racist.’

And in another episode, Mr Michael’s wife Carolyne says: ‘That Mark Reckless is not exactly very charismatic is he?’ After Mr Michael agrees, she adds: ‘I think if you were a donkey and you had the Ukip rosette on, they would vote for you.’

Favoured: Mr Atkinson says, in reference to ex-Tories like Douglas Carswell (right with Mr Farage): ‘Potential candidates who have defected from the Conservatives will be preferred to long-term party members.'

Douglas Carswell and Nigel Farage talk about party defection
 

 

Last week it was revealed that more than a dozen party activists had resigned amid complaints that Mr Farage and his ‘undemocratic cabal’ had stopped long-serving Ukip members from standing as MPs in winnable seats.

Last night, a Ukip spokesman said: ‘It is Ukip policy that candidates in target seats are verified by the NEC. In the case of Hastings, it was felt the candidate was not suitable.

‘Nobody was preferred by the party. Hastings has now selected Mr Michael. This has nothing to do with Mr Farage’s filming with the Gogglebox team, which took place months ago and was unrelated.’

>GUEST POST: Apology to John Bickley Failed Ukip Candidate

Posted by Greg Lance - Watkins (Greg_L-W) on 12/11/2014

>GUEST POST: Apology to John Bickley Failed Ukip Candidate

Hi,

 

this is an apology to John Bickley sent to me anonymousy with the implied intent that it should be published where it would be seen by those seeking the truth about Ukip including the many journalists who are known to read and quote this blog over the years.

 

I did not notice, or more to the point remember as significant, the original comment seemingly made, which the anonymous author considered to be in need of an apology.

 

For that matter I paid little or no significance to John Bickley in either of the elections in question as he was a Ukip candidate with little or no realistic expectation of winning – unless of course he had been placed in first or second position on Nigel Farage’s chosen list of MEP candidate, which clearly he was not.

 

Internal selection, or for that matter elec tion processes in Ukip have been extensively rigged to ensure those candidates who are a direct benefit to Nigel Farage or he himself take the electable positions, replacing those the electorate have or may have chosen.

 

Many will remember that his lackey Douglas Denny was removed from office as returning officer when exposed as a liar and a cheat by this blog during Farage’s own election as leader! It would seem to be normal practice in Ukip CLICK HERE & many will recall when Douglas Denny as Ukip’s Returning Officer was removed having actively campaigned in the election he purported to adjudicate!

Below is the apology to John Bickley, as received from an anonymous author, thus I can not attest to its accuracy but it does seem accurate on the items which I am certain of.

Regards,
Greg_L-W.

Based upon personal experience, I incline to believe this is just the tip of the iceberg!

.

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

Hi,
as is well known I have been a follower of Ukip for almost 20 years and although never a member had at one time a close relationship and some considerable influence with its leadership and others, becoming well aquainted with their corruption and increasingly aware that they did not represent ANY of the decent morals and values of the peoples of these United Kingdoms.
I have NEVER had personal political ambitions in politics and was therefore able to take action exposing the corruption of Ukip by its leadership clique and its claque as they sought vain glory for themselves, ulterior motives and enrichment.
I can not confirm all of the details in the Guest Post below but I am inclined to believe it in substance and style and have added numerous other examples, which are readily available amongst over 2,000 blog postings on this web site.
I believe that for the sake of these United Kingdoms Ukip must be cleaned-up so that they can take an active and trustworthy role in extracting Britain from the obscenely costly, odious, arcane and undemocratic EU experiment in neo communist socialism, that in enriching the few has brought misery to so many – be they the huge swathe of unemployed in Spain, the impoverished and bankrupt of Greece, the peoples of West Africa who have their food stolen from their fisheries on a daily basis by the EU fleets or the discontent in Britain of paying £Billions of tax payers’ money for absolutely no gain for the peoples of Britain, merely the enrichment of a small core of bureaucrats, businessmen and an out of touch and out of control self serving political elite and their lackeys – including the State enforcement arm represented by the Police, once servants of the people and increasingly an out of control bullying occupying army.
Ukip had a huge duty to perform but in 21 years it hasabrogated on its responsibilities and betrayed the trust of its electorate, largely genuine, decent, concerned, patriotic folk lied to and deceived by The Nigel Farage Cult and its claque.
Astonishingly in 21 years Ukip not only has failed to structure the most rudimentary of responsible, honourable exit and survival strategies to Leave_The_EU but has failed to show a single clear achievement towards moving Britain one inch closer to the exit door – Their sole achievement has been in promoting themselves to a largely gullible, ill informed and trusting electorate to build their own electoral success and income stream
Please be advised that based upon my experience of Ukip and its vile bullying, abuse of the law and lies I believe the facts, as laid out in the article below – particularly as I have seen a considerable amount of hard evidence aupporting the article and now note that DS Reardon & his oppo Galvin have recently been quite clearly destroying evidence!
It is my belief that all cases involving the police officers name should be reviewed by an outside agency as potentially unsound and that the cases against Jasna Badzak and Nikki Sinclaire are beyond doubt unsound and set aside of ALL criminal records against them in these matters, all convictions and all proceedings should be set aside and public appology made.
A great deal of good could be done for the improvement of the standing and public opinion of both police and politicians were a thorough revue and forensic accounting to be undertaken and the prosecution and incaceration of those who have set out to abuse their office and befoul British Justice be made most public.
As investigated by outside agencies that can, unlike the police and politicians can be trusted!

Serious questions have been raised about the abuse of police powers in favour of far right politicians after a whistleblower from nationalist party United Kingdom Independence Party (UKIP) claimed to have been framed and intimidated by police officers with extreme right sympathies.

Jasna Badzak, who worked as a press officer for senior UKIP Member of European Parliament Gerard Batten before reporting his incitements to racial hatred to the police, has revealed that she believes she was the target of a criminal conspiracy by several officers to set her up. An anonymous journalist involved in reporting Badzak’s case has since sent evidence to former Conservative MP Louise Mensch which, if true, “threaten[s] them if they wrote negative stories on Batten”.

Ms. Badzak started working for UKIP in November 2010, having previously left the Conservative Party after becoming disillusioned. She felt that accusations in the mainstream media claiming that UKIP is a racist party were overblown, but after only a few months became convinced of the party’s “racist and fascist underbelly”, as she told campaigner Lee Jasper. Batten himself is reported to be friendly with numerous extreme right groups and known anti-semites.

A known Islamophobe even amongst other party members, Batten wrote a confidential paper in 2011 addressed to a Christian group in which he argued for a ban on halal meat, outlawing Islamic banking, and forcing all Muslims to sign a code of conduct. Badzak, who had access to the draft long before it was leaked to the press earlier this year, expressed her disgust at her boss’s views to party leader Nigel Farage, who is said to have expressed sympathy but done nothing.

Jasper reports that Badzak was told by Farage that he and Batten shared “mutually destructive information on each other”, echoing an earlier comment by former party MEP Nikki Sinclair that “anyone who has ever questioned or stood up to Farage has basically been destroyed. Gerard Batten challenges Nigel and always survives. My belief is that he’s the one who Nigel puts up [with] and controls.”

Sinclaire added, “I know him and Farage don’t get on. I question how he can survive in UKIP. They’re not good friends. My only conclusion is that he controls him.”

After having her complaints within the party repeatedly ignored, Badzak eventually turned to the Metropolitan Police to report the draft, and in May 2011 she submitted further evidence of EU expenses fraud in the party, as well as of a senior UKIP member possessing child pornography. All of her complaints were handled by an officer named Detective Sergeant Shaun Reardon.

Following this reporting, Badzak and her family were repeatedly harassed and violently threatened at their home by groups of random strangers who she suspects were members of the English Defense League (EDL), the far right’s current Sturmabteilung of choice, with whose leadership Batten had previously met. Ms. Badzak reported each incident to the Metropolitan Police, all of which were also handled by Detective Sergeant Shaun Reardon. This campaign of targeted intimidation by thugs continued for 13 months without any investigation by the police, despite constant complaints.

In February 2012 Badzak attempted to seek a restraining order in court on Batten, where one Detective James Galvin testified for Batten (having embraced the MEP upon entering the courtroom). Galvin told the court that the police had no active police investigation into Batten, which was much later revealed to be a lie, as the Metropolitan Police has since admitted – but not before this resulted in Ms. Badzak’s case being dismissed.

Batten then wrote to the Metropolitan Police on October 5th 2012, reporting fraud allegations against her on UKIP letterhead – an act that Lee Jasper wrote in his blog “must constitute an attempt to politically influence the investigation”. The police responded quickly, arresting Badzak on November 29th.

The two officers arresting her were Reardon and Galvin.

After being charged with fraud on evidence which, according to Jasper “seemed incredibly flimsy” and to Mensch was “totally unsafe”, Ms. Badzak wrote to Sir Bernard Hogan-Howe, the Metropolitan Police Commissioner, demanding to know why her complaints had been ignored while Batten’s had been handled immediately. The internal Department of Professional Standards replied to inform her that the MPS employed no such named officers, and even after persisting was repeatedly told this.

Ms Badzak then wrote to the Independent Police Complaints Commission, who after some time eventually sent her the same reponse, that there were no police officers named Reardon or Galvin. Finally, she wrote to David Cameron and Boris Johnson, both of whom wrote in turn to the MPS and both of whom were told, in writing, the exact same thing. This means that the Metropolitan Police and the IPCC both misled the Prime Minister, with Jasper speculating “possibly wilfully”.

Reardon and Galvin each testified in court against Badzak, and under cross-examination said that they had “no idea” why written confirmation that they were not serving police officers had been received by Ms. Badzak, the Prime Minister, the Mayor of London and the IPCC. This was summarily ignored by the judge, who passed Ms Badzak a one-year suspended jail sentence of 28 months, around double the average sentence and an especially harsh sentence for someone with no prior convictions.

In April 2014, Badzak and Jasper were told by a police superintendent that five separate UKIP investigations were being reopened, including her complaints predating Batten’s fraud allegation. They provided the superintendent with “strong witness evidence” that two other officers, Detective Inspector Fleming and DC Tony Holden, contacted prominent journalists and threatened them with arrest if they published any negative press on UKIP – both now under investigation on suspicion of harassing journalists and potentially perverting the course of justice.

This should have brought Badzak a reprieve, now that officers suspected of abusing their powers for political purposes were being pursued, and yet in June 2014 she was contacted by Detective Sergeant Christopher Page, of the same police station as the one in which she testified against Fleming and Holden (Charing Cross). Page wanted Badzak to come in to interview about “very allegations” related to her “twitter harassment of Gerard Batten” and “talking to Lee Jasper” – who due to his anti-racism activism throughout the years is no friend to the Metropolitan Police.

It turned out that Badzak’s ‘harassment’ of her old boss had been the retweeting of an article in the Sunday Times, a respected national daily, that was critical of UKIP.

This is not the first time UKIP has called the police on someone for legitimately criticising them on Twitter. Michael Abberton, a Green Party member from Cambridgeshire, was visited in May by two country police officers after tweeting a poster against UKIP. The officers in question asked Abberton to take it down, even though they had no legal basis to do so, with Abberton later commentating that it was “not a police matter.”

Such ‘light touch’ policing may well be polite in its manner, but the lack of a mandate to do so raises questions about why it was considered worthy of police time in the first place, and under whose authority the case was pursued.

After Detective Sergeant Page threatened Ms. Badzak over the phone not to tweet against Batten or talk to Jasper, she stated for the record the following:

“UKIP is criminal fascist organization. I stand 100% behind that and under Article 10 of European Convention of Human Rights incorporated in British law as Human Rights Act 1998 I have a right to freedom of speech and there is nothing you can do about that. You can also not order me to keep quiet or not to tweet. I know you would like to silence me completely, to muzzle me but you can’t despite your telephone threat not to tweet”.

Responding to this, Page attempted to lie, denying that he threatened her in the way that she claimed – but Ms Badzak had taped the phonecall. Page is now under investigation. However, Badzak still faces an appearance in court on November 26th, and Jasper has called for the public to support her against political persecution outside West London Magistrates court that morning, launching the #Justice4Jasna hashtag on Twitter.

In the meantime, Louise Mensch has stated that she will be submitting the evidence that she has received to the Internal Police Complaints Commission, the Home Affairs Select Committee, the Metropolitan Police Commissioner and the Electoral Commission.

Throughout the weekend, Mensch tweeted that Detective Sergeant Shaun Reardon has since deleted much of his online presence, such as his LinkedIn account, and shared screenshots of the Facebook profile of Detective Sergeant James Galvin, showing several posts in support of UKIP and a meme with what appears to be anti-Irish slur. It has also emerged that the names matching that of Galvin and his wife appeared on leaked British National Party membership lists.

Mensch has pointed out in an update to this story that the actions of Galvin and Reardon, who both have clear UKIP sympathies, represent “a colossal conflict of interest” which “goes beyond any kind of politics to the very deepest, darkest abuses of our capital’s major police force against a private citizen”.

While the investigations into the abuses of these officers are ongoing, more light must be shed on several aspects of this worrying string of abuses. The rapid gains of the extreme right across Europe have coincided with an increase in the influence of fascist sympathies amongst police forces. The most chilling example is in Greece where senior police figures have raised concerns that the neo-nazi Golden Dawn has infiltrated the police and turns a blind eye to “pockets of fascism”. Given that the police have suffered numerous blows to their credibility of late, such as the fabrication of a quote that led to the dismissal of a government minister and last year’s revelation that undercover cops had stolen the birth certificates of dead infants and fathered children with activists they spied on, the onus must be on them to reassure a skeptical British public that the co-opting of state power by political extremists will not be tolerated or ignored any longer.

Finally, it is worth celebrating the bravery of Nasra Badzak in the face of three years of, at the very least, gross neglect and constant harassment by the Metropolitan Police. Had she chosen not to withstand the barrage of constant bullying, the stress of which has given her a serious heart condition, these questions about the safeguarding of freedom of speech would not now be in the public domain.
