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

is what gives the remaining 10% a bad name!

Hi,

as ever Ukip members at all levels are fighting like ferrets in a sack – their leaderless situation after years of self serving leaders is just another one of the more obvious fractures that are destroying the party with no sign of anyone of any competence and political skill likely to step forward and put a stop to the squabbling.

Added to this so many senior party members are under investigation by OLAF and asd far afield as the FBI, CIA, and US NSA with quite obvious links to Russia and Russian funding it is hardly surprising!

There is even talk that Banks, Stroloff, Farage, Batten and possibly others are in danger of indictment!

Here is concrete evidence for you of how widespread this utter incompetence is and although I don’t find Ukip has sufficient worth or future to invest more time in the matter investigating this document sent to me has the absolute ring of truth to it as justy more of the same:

STRICTLY CONFIDENTIAL PRIVILEGED – DO NOT DISTRIBUTE FURTHER

GUIDANCE SOUGHT FROM: UKIP NEC including UKIP GENERAL SECRETARY, UKIP PARTY SECRETARY (LEGAL TEAM)

DRAFT REPORT ON LONDON TITHEING (OR, ABSENCE OF) BY UKIP LONDON ASSEMBLY MEMBERS

BACKGROUND

This report is produced because I, the Regional Chairman, am fed up of being criticised by people connected to one or other London Assembly members for my playing some role in, or being responsible for, their not attending, since May 2016, Regional committee meetings, to which I’ve always invited them. This also relates to the issue of tithing by London Assembly members.

They have not made any financial contribution to the Region or, I am advised, any significant contribution to central Party funds; if there were any significant financial contributions directly to branches, I’ve not been able to find any. This report principally relates to suggestions that, prior to being elected, AMs had promised to contribute.

At the minuted Regional meeting of May 9, 2016, several days after the AMs had been elected, NEC delegate Elizabeth Jones asked an extra-agenda question about whether the AMs would tithe or otherwise contribute money. I ended this discussion once an impasse was reached. Many of us then overheard a side conversation from the floor, where two members of the Croydon branch were agreeing that a prior commitment to tithe had been made by one or both AMs.

Several minutes later, Elizabeth revisited this, and several others chimed in. An AM took offence an began to remonstrat with her in raised tones; both left in a huff. I gently scolded the NEC member for what could be seen as incivility. At a talk after the end of the meeting, it appeared to me that a third party, the then Chairman of the Croydon branch, also thought this had happened, but was more concerned that the NEC member had been too brusque.

I had no prior intention of looking further into what was a year-old matter when the (new to the job, and apparently interpreting his role very differently from how the Regional Secretary and I saw it) Regional Vice Chairman began claiming in writing that it was largely my fault. Had he not done so, I would not have initiated these enquiries.

To quote from several of his picturesque emails addressed to myself:

“The division is disastrous and a gaping self-inflicted wound on UKIP in London … The matter is more complex than that and certainly is not solely the result of ‘unsympathetic handling from an attendee’ as your email implies. … Regarding the disastrous divisions at senior level within UKIP in London, I think it would be helpful if you acknowledged, first to yourself and then to Peter and David, your own major contribution to this unfortunate state of affairs. A little humility an realistic acknowledgement of your mistakes might open the door to reconciliation between you.

He kept calling for meetings to discuss this, though there was a snap General Election to fight. I thought this bizarre. For the avoidance of doubt – my duties include competently chairing meetings; my skill-set does not include reading people’s minds as to what they are about to do or say, but have not yet done or said. And, given the additional information, it appears as if the NEC attendee, Elizabeth, may have been justified in bringing up the matter again.

Then, the person who set all this off, the Regional Vice Chairman, resigned, citing a potential conflict of interest as he is closely involved in getting one of the AMs concerned elected as Party Leader. His resignation was accepted.

In conjunction with the Regional Secretary, I have investigated the matter; I do not find I made anything to support the Vice Chairman’s allegations against me. There is nothing further I can do – I defer to youi to look into it, and also into whether there was any prior commitment to tithe. There is some evidence there was.

The then Vice Chairman’s emails also showed knowledge of an apparently unconstitutional body operating in London in parallel with the legitimate one (the “LRC”), and fund-raising within UKIP – one which the Secretary, R.O. and I are obliged to fully investigate. The Vice Chairman claimed to have been offered a senior position in that body (“LCC”).

WHAT I HAVE SINCE DONE TO ASCERTAIN THE TRUTH

In summer 2017, have attempted to contact all attendees at the unminuted UKIP branch meeting in Croydon on October 28, 2015 (i.e., 3+ months before I was elected Regional Chairman). The position of the AM attendees is selfevident – they deny there was any commitment to tithe.

Three attendees claim a pledge or pledges were made. Written evidence from them is below.

None of the other non-AM attendees (CW, DH, MS, PK), when telephoned by me, were able to shed any further light on this. All said they couldn’t confirm tithing pledges were made, but couldn’t confirm they weren’t. One of the four (PK) is hard of hearing; the other three say they remember almost nothing of what was said. The former branch Chairman (CW), whom I thought on May 9 2016 recalled the 2015 event, in 2017 said he no longer could be sure.

So, of the seven identified attendees beside the AMs, three assert that a pledge or pledges were made, and the other four don’t recall either way. Knowing the attendees and the relations (strained in several cases) between them, I find it hard to believe there is collusion. However, I cannot guarantee there hasn’t been any. Arguably, one of the three witnesses may have an axe to grind.

Important Caveat: I cannot attest to the veracity or accuracy of anything other than what was directly witnessed by me.

None of what allegedly happened in Croydon was witnessed by me. The emails quoted below were really from their apparent senders (Kathleen Garner 02086 816135; Peter Staveley 07973168742; Suzanne Evans 07973149104).

Subject: Croydon Meeting

Up-date:

Not long after the selection process for the GLA elections in 2016 had finished, the three top candidates, Peter Whittle, David Kurten and Suzanne Evans, were invited to speak to the Croydon UKIP branch. The meeting was held on Wednesday, the 28th October, 2015, at The Orchard public house in Cherry Orchard Road, Addiscombe, East Croydon.

The issue of the candidates’ paying a tithe to the party arose. David Kurten stated that he would pay 10% to the party in London. I queried this, pointing out that it would involve his paying £5,000. He agreed to the amount, adding that it would in fact probably be more than that.

I recall that Peter Whittle did not make any comment about his planned contribution.

I am not sure what Suzanne Evans said but in a later e-mail in response to one from me she said that as a councillor she had paid a regular monthly tithe and would have done the same again.

At the May 9th [2016] LRC meeting held at the Old Butler’s Head, Elizabeth Jones reminded the committee that Labour members pay a tithe to their party and, with further reference to the lost mayoral deposit, pursued this issue with reference to Peter Whittle and David Kurten. Both GLA members, who were present, made it clear that they disliked the raising of this matter and refused to discuss it.

I mentioned what had been said at the Croydon meeting to Peter Staveley who was sitting to the right of my neighbour.

He agreed that these comments had been made.

Elizabeth Jones then brought up the issue again but the chairman informed her that the matter had been dealt with.

Peter Whittle left the room abruptly. David Kurten followed Peter Whittle a few minutes later.

I do recall that it was 10% because after David made this offer I immediately pointed out to him that this would constitute £5,000 and he not only agreed, he said it would in fact be slightly more.

This is what makes me so certain that he did make this offer in this way.

I had not thought about it since that event until the fatal LRC meeting when I was taken aback by David’s response.

I too have a recollection that David offered a tithe. I am not so certain that any figure was mentioned. Unfortunately, as in any witness statement, my memory has been clouded by later comments so I am less comfortable that 10% was mentioned. However, that could well have been because 10% seemed very reasonable and absolutely normal.

Certainly had I been in David’s position I would have made the same commitment (and stuck to it).

Subject: Attn: Peter Staveley.

Now things have quietened down as GE2017 nominations go in, or don’t, I’m briefly addressing several deeply unpleasant accusations made against me, in writing, after I won re-election at the LRC AGM (…) The essence of them is that I bear some responsibility, or even guilt, for allowing the question of tithes to be raised by Elizabeth Jones at the LRC last May 9, or by not shutting it/her down quickly enough when she re-raised them.

The bare facts of what happened were minuted and are not in dispute.

While what Elizabeth had stated a year ago evidently made several uncomfortable, and may even been in poor taste,

she was IMO neither rude nor offensive. Breaking into a comfort zone is less significant than breaking an electoral promise. Elizabeth, as an NEC member, had the right to attend LRC meetings, and, as I confirmed with both the then General Secretary (and UKIP Legal chief) and later with his successor, such attendance carries with it the right to address the meeting, though not to disrupt it.

At that May 9, 2016 LRC meeting, an exchange between Kathleen Garner and yourself, wholly unanticipated by me, was overheard by me. I didn’t miss a word of it. I have precious few talents; the ability to accurately follow simultaneous conversations, and a good sense of hearing, are two of them.

I had noticed you nodding in agreement at what Kathleen told you she had recollected (which was an abbreviated version of what appears in bold below). You recalled it too.

Understanding in a trice the significance of what had just passed between Kathleen and you, I instantly looked across at the Croydon branch Chairman. His expression conveyed to me that he too had heard the exchange.

Evidently, the exchange was also heard by Elizabeth Jones, who then immediately revisited what I’d closed down 10 minutes or so earlier. Very shortly thereafter, chaos ensued.

At the end of that fateful LRC meeting I – very briefly – spoke with the Croydon branch Chairman. His focus was his unhappiness at the manner in which Elizabeth had approached the matter, and not whether what Kathleen had recalled had really happened… I thought that significant and [perhaps] corroborative.

Last week, our having suffered this year-old incident being dredged up, one of my LRC colleagues asked for the subject of that exchange to be set out by Kathleen in writing.

This is what she has kindly provided, based on her contemporaneous notes from 2015:

“Not long after the selection process for the GLA elections in 2016 had finished, the three top candidates, Peter Whittle, David Kurten and Suzanne Evans, were invited to speak to the Croydon UKIP branch. The meeting was held on Wednesday, the 28th October, 2015, at The Orchard public house, [112] Cherry Orchard Road, Addiscombe, East Croydon [CR0 6BA].

The issue of the candidates’ paying a tithe to the party arose. David Kurten stated that he would pay 10% to the party in London. I queried this, pointing out that it would involve his paying £5,000. He agreed to the amount, adding that it would in fact probably be more than that.

I recall that Peter Whittle did not make any comment about his planned contribution.”

Kathleen also stated this came up again in email with Suzanne Evans, who commented on her own record of contributing moneys.

Peter, does the italicised material broadly agree with your recollection of those events in Croydon in October 2015? If no, where do you disagree with Kathleen? Please add anything of relevance. I was, of course, not there. (…) Thanks.

Best, Freddy

Dear Freddy,

I was at the Croydon meeting, as I was then still number three on the London list. I recall quite clearly that we all – myself, Peter Whittle and David Kurten – pledged to pay a tithe. I pointed out that I had done so as a Councillor. I cannot explicitly recall DK saying he would pay 10% but yes, we all did offer to pay something from our AM salaries if elected.

Best wishes,

Suzanne Evans

Very useful event, thanks.

I bumped into David Kurten as he was leaving. I reminded him of his promise to pay a tenth when he was in Croydon.

He denied it. I said he did and he appeared to claim that I was lying. By their deeds shall ye know them.

Hi,

first a Ukip spokesman claimed that the flood last winter were due to the Government having legalised same gender marriage, then in the last couple of days a Ukip PPC pronounced from Liverpool that Liverpool Football Club’s recent abject failures on the playing field were due to Liverpool’s acceptance of homosexuality.

Then of course there were the comments of Winston McKenzie who as a spokesman of Ukip somewhat arcanely and overly simplistically claimed that all cases of same gender couples adopting children were nothing more than child abuse and now look what this cult spokesman has had to say:

EUReferendum

Thursday 18 December 2014

000a Inde-017 McKenzie.jpg

Nigel Farage has been likened to Jesus by Ukip’s Commonwealth spokesman, Winston McKenzie. The Eurosceptic “army” was behind their leader, who can “do no wrong”.

“Jesus was one man, we’re his army. Farage is one man, and we’re his army and that’s what it’s all about”, he says. “Farage is like (non-stick) Teflon – he can do no wrong. Everywhere he goes, it doesn’t matter what he says or does – he gets away with it”.

McKenzie may be Ukip’s “token black” and barking mad with it, but he is an official party spokesman, taken by the media as representing the party view. On the other hand, this drip-drip of hostile media, may represent a change in tactics – or be an indication that the fourth estate is sensing blood.

For those Ukipites who complain that they are being “picked on”, the obvious response is that, if the party didn’t generate such unflattering publicity, it wouldn’t be available to use. As to whether it is having an effect, we see today a Guardian/ICM poll which puts Ukip on 14 percent, down from the heady heights of 19-20 percent it was getting in October/November. The latest YouGov poll has 16 percent – up from 14 percent over the weekend, but again down from the peaks it was getting earlier. Having gone through £2.96 million in the Euro-elections, outspending Labour, if the polls are any guide, Ukip will now need considerably more to succeed in the general election. With the bad press it is now getting, though, it will take a miracle on a par with the feeding of the five thousand. Perhaps Farage needs to be the Son of God that Winston McKenzie would have him be. He would be advised, though, to stay off the painkillers.

Nigel Farage compared to Jesus by Ukip candidate Winston McKenzie

He also compared the leader to Teflon and said criticism just doesn’t stick

 

Nigel Farage has been likened to Jesus by Ukip’s Commonwealth spokesperson, Winston McKenzie.

In an interview with Chat Politics, he said the Eurosceptic “army” was behind their leader, who can “do no wrong”.

“Jesus was one man, we’re his army. Farage is one man, and we’re his army and that’s what it’s all about,” he said.

“Farage is like (non-stick) Teflon – he can do no wrong. Everywhere he goes, it doesn’t matter what he says or does – he gets away with it.”

Mr McKenzie, famed for having joined every major political party in the UK but never winning an election, most recently stood for Ukip in the 2012 Croydon North by-election, receiving 6 per cent of the vote.

He has unsuccessfully run as an MP, the Mayor of London (against Boris Johnson) and as a local councillor but insisted he is still “needed” in politics.

Showing his support for Ukip with a purple fox badge “made in the likeness of Mr Farage”, Mr McKenzie told Chat Politics the Eurosceptic party was stealing Tory “hens” from the Parliamentary coop but struggled to remember defectors’ names.

“Douglas and…the other guy,” he said, referring to former Conservative MP Mark Reckless, now Ukip’s representative for Rochester and Strood.

When quizzed on his party’s immigration policy, Mr McKenzie advocated the introduction of an unspecified quota and defined British as anyone who “works and stands of for the traditions of the place where they live”.

When questioned on same-sex marriage, he claimed that it was “not something that Christians would advocate” and raised the concept of being “genuinely gay”.

“I have nothing against gay people, I’m not some kind of homophobe but I am entitled to express my heartfelt opinion,” he added. “I’m not going to be drawn on that because I know what will happen.”

Mr McKenzie, a former hairdresser, said he maintains it as a hobby because: “I love the women it gets me closer to the ladies, I find out what they’re thinking.”

He made a rap video for the 2008 London elections and tried to achieve pop stardom in 2005 with a run on the X Factor.

The interview ended with Mr McKenzie to the camera about the Conservative-Lib Dem Coalition, adding: “I’m not your average politician.”

Then for a different take on this fool and Nigel Farage’s utter incompetence as a leader and his unprofessional judgement in placements of people:

Farage is like Jesus, claims Ukip hopeful: Former boxer turned party candidate says supporters are followers and leader can ‘do no wrong’

  • UKIP candidate Winston McKenzie compared Nigel Farage to Jesus 
  • The former boxer said the party members were Farage’s followers 
  • He previously caused controversy with his remarks about gay adoption 
Commonwealth spokesman Winston McKenzie has said that Nigel Farage is like Jesus and UKIP members are his followers

Nigel Farage is like Jesus and Ukip members are his followers, one of the party’s candidates has claimed.

Commonwealth spokesman Winston McKenzie, who is a former professional boxer and has previously courted controversy with remarks about gay adoption, said the party leader can ‘do no wrong’.

‘Jesus was one man, we’re his army. Farage is one man, and we’re his army and that’s what it’s all about,’ he said.

‘Everywhere he goes, it doesn’t matter what he says or does – he gets away with it.’

Mr McKenzie joined Ukip after previously being a member of the Conservatives, Lib Dems and his own Unity party. He has stood to be an MP, Mayor of London and a local councillor, but lost his deposit on every occasion.

‘The one thing with Farage is there’s (sic) no heirs and graces, you do business. He’s a strong leader,’ he said in the interview with Chat Politics. ‘Farage is like (non-stick) Teflon – he can do no wrong.’

Mr McKenzie, who described himself as ‘not your average politician’, has developed a reputation for making controversial pronouncements.

While standing for Ukip in the 2012 Croydon North by-election, he described gay adoption as ‘tantamount to child abuse’ and ‘unhealthy’.

Asked by Chat Politics for his views on same-sex marriage, he said: ‘I have nothing against gay people, I’m not some kind of homophobe but I am entitled to express my heartfelt opinion.’

Mr McKenzie said that he favours a quota on immigrants coming into the country.

UKIP leader Nigel Farage has been compared to Jesus by one of the party's candidatesWinston McKenzie said: 'Jesus was one man, we're his army. Farage is one man, and we're his army and that's what it's all about.'

He said: ‘For every extra person that comes into this country, a British person has to do without and I’m not talking here colour or creed.

‘I define British as someone who comes here and toils and works and stands up for the traditions of the place they live.’

Earlier this year, Mr McKenzie described Croydon – where he was standing as a local councillor – as ‘unsafe and a dump’ after Mr Farage pulled out of appearing at a ‘Ukip carnival’ there.

He made a rap video during his 2008 campaign to be Mayor of London and previously auditioned for the X Factor.

Winston McKenzie is quite a good measure of not just Ukip for whom he is an official spokesman yet clearly the public see him as a fool and in all the elections he has stood in for all the parties he has aspired to represent he has always lost his deposit.
This also reflects attrociously on the professionalism of Ukip and the personal judgement of Nigel Farage that he has placed him as an official spokesman for his cult!

With a drunk totally disinterested in democracy and fairplay within HIS party and bereft of any signs of gravitas or responsible behaviour and clowns like Winston McKenzie and the many others who have been his personal placements both as candidates and staff just why does anyone consider Ukip worthy of a vote – Do people really believe these low lifes and ner do wells represent them and their values!

Just look at the endless examples of not just stupidity from Ukip but the endless allegations and proven examples of substantial sums of money being fraudulently obtained

WISE, Tom 04 MEP
and squandered and the serial lies, bullying and criminality – Would anyone of any sense want Ukip running their company stationary cupboard let alone on the fringes of Government with access to perhaps the Treasury, Defence, Health, Foreign Office or the like.

Just imagine Ukip as a Government Nigel Farage would have control of the Nuclear Trigger

McGOUGH, Michael 05
(but he would probably have been drinking with one of his low life placemen) 11710-nigeldrinkingOR just drinking!

Winston McKenzie would be Foreign Minister waiting for his boss to walk on water or perform a miracle, OR handing out money to his chums from Ukip donations!
ODZE, Shneur 01 + FARAGE & NUTTALL
Paul Nuttall would be in a pub somewhere currying populist favour and clandestinely plotting the fall of Farage and how he could then rule the world,

Patrick O’Flynn who broke ethical codes as a journalsit to feather his own nest on the gravy train by betraying his readers
O'FLYNN, Patrick 02
would be in the EU trying to work out how he could damn his opponents with feint praise to oust them as rivals for Farage’s income stream,

Roger Helmer would be in a dubious massage parlour well known for its ‘extended’ services, or recovering from an earlier ‘session’,
HELMER, Roger 02 - ASLEEP on The JOB 01
Stuart Agnew would be fixing contracts for migrant workers for his farm and running errands for the NFU,

Janice Atkinson could be relied on to be doing something offensive and making enemies:

ATKINSON, Janice 02Need I continue!

There is not a single solitary member of Ukip’s elected representatives or its staff who could be described as competent and with gravitas and clearly not one with any understanding of ethics or integrity or they would decline to be associated with such a shower of self serving, liars, thieves and gutter politicians.

NOT ONE!

Hi,
this is not, as Ukip followers will be all too well aware, Winston McKenzie’s only recent brush with ordure and making Ukip look almost as foolish as he has consistently proved to be!
Frankly I can’t be bothered publishing the all the serial stupidities and spectacular ‘FAILS’ of this ridiculous little self publicist, but a quick search on the internet will provide more than enough evidence of his antics!

UKIP’s McKenzie takes revenge against local whistleblower

Winston McKenzie: don't get the wrong side of "The Avenger"

Do not, whatever you do, get the wrong side of Winston McKenzie, UKIP’s parliamentary candidate for Croydon North at next year’s General Election.

Because if you do, then he might drum you out of his little club.

The ex-boxer likes to describe himself as “Champ”, despite having never won a title or a public election. He may soon be nicknaming himself “The Avenger”, after the whistleblower who reported strange goings-ons with a large cash donation to his party was this morning kicked off McKenzie’s committee and out of UKIP’s Lambeth and Croydon North branch.

McKenzie characterised the outcome of the meeting this morning as “being kind to the old boy”. Not so much “The Avenger”, perhaps then, as “The Smiling Assassin”.

McKenzie, Nigel Farage’s chosen party spokesman on “Commonwealth issues”, was exposed as having failed to properly handle and account for a £1,000 donation to party campaign funds earlier this year.

As Inside Croydon reported, McKenzie claims to have used a large chunk of the cash – which never saw the inside of a bank – to pay a few of his mates for “security” at his chaotic Croydon Carnival in May (for more details CLICK HERE). Not that McKenzie ever bothered getting any receipts or invoices for the expenditure, which was apparently made on behalf of UKIP.

Beyond a slapped wrist and instructions to the branch treasurer, Lady Bowness (she is the former wife of Tory peer Lord Bowness), to take more care with the party’s money in future, a report into the matter conducted by Mick McGough, a member of UKIP’s national executive, recommended no further action against McKenzie.

Inside Croydon was leaked McGough’s report, which you can read by clicking here. It is all pretty basic stuff.

Why was there no further action taken by UKIP? “Nigel feels that Winston is useful to the party,” said a senior figure within UKIP nationally, without expanding on what that “usefulness” might be. “That’s despite the lorry-loads of baggage that Winston brings with him.”

UKIP leader, Nigel Farage: seems to think "Chump" McKenzie offers something to UKIP

Given such a free pass, McKenzie appears to believe he can run his branch of UKIP as his own fiefdom.

So this morning, McKenzie chaired a meeting of UKIP’s Lambeth and Croydon North branch committee, called to expel from the branch the member who had highlighted the irregularities over the handling of the large sum of money.

The committee meeting was held at the “branch headquarters” on Station Road in South Norwood. “In attendance will be the Committee, myself, Marianne Bowness, Barry Slayford and Peter Kirby,” McKenzie wrote in his meeting summons.

It seems that McKenzie’s Lambeth North and Croydon branch has a committee of just five people.

Only two of those actually live in the branch area of which they are members. UKIP’s own rules on “migration” between membership areas appears a good deal more relaxed than the party’s policies on migration between EU member states.

Three of McKenzie’s branch committee do not live Lambeth and Croydon North: Marianne Bowness is a Waddon resident (in the Croydon South parliamentary constituency, and therefore under a different UKIP branch), Peter Kirby comes from Heathfield (ditto), and Peter Morgan lives in Coulsdon (same again).

And then there were four: Morgan’s UKIP membership is suspended at the moment, because of his penchant for running multiple Twitter accounts without any accountability. So he was not on the five-person committee meeting invitation list.

And McKenzie’s committee is now just three-strong, because Kirby, UKIP Lambeth and Croydon North’s membership secretary, has now been removed. Kirby was the person who raised the matter of McKenzie and treasurer Bowness’s somewhat lax financial accounting.

Today’s meeting – which was due to start at 11am on a weekday, when most hard-working people are at work – was to consider just two motions: one to accept the resignation of Kirby as a signatory to the branch bank account (Kirby tendered this resignation at the extraordinary meeting to discuss the financial irregularities on November 19), and second “To vote on the removal of Peter Kirby as a Member of the Lambeth & Croydon North Branch”.

Until today, Inside Croydon had heard nothing further from “Chump” McKenzie since he somewhat rashly threatened to employ Messrs Sue, Grabbit & Runne to sue us (though he omitted to say on what grounds).

So we phoned his mobile shortly after the meeting was due to finish. A somewhat harassed-sounding woman answered. It was Marianne Bowness. We asked to speak to Winston, and whether they’d had their meeting.

“I’m on the bus,” said her ladyship. “I’ll get Winston to call you when I am back in the office.”

Nearly two hours later, McKenzie called to say, “Peter’s a lovely bloke, but he’s getting on, he’s 83 I think.

“This has been coming for some time, and it’s affected my health, but things have changed since the local and European elections. He’s said that he’s tired and old and that he’s got to go. I begged him not to go.

“But I’ve got to accept his resignation and be kind to the old boy.”

By time of publication, Peter Kirby has not responded to our request for a comment.

Yet Another Display Of Ukip Un-Professionalism

Hi,
this format for a report on internal handling of finances by Ukip would seem perhaps to be a standard format for handling the many internal inquiries into misappropriation of funds – only the amounts vary and the individuals concerned – Just think howmany £Millions could have been kept for party use had these been the principles enforced in instances like the handling of monies from Ashford, or the cash collected in buckets at various meetings, funding paid through graham Booth’s (& possibly others) credit card machines, donations in cash and kind seemingly to buy positions on selection lists etc.
Mick McGough a discredited and offensive bean counter in Ukip is hardly the one to be handling such reports, as was it not he who acted as co signator for his corrupt chum Andrew Smith when Smith was Ukip’s treasurer, a role for which Mick McGough had no formal authorisation!
Many will remember it was Andrew Smith who fled his position of trust when challenged over some 27 financial irregularities by the then NEC member Richard Suchorzewski – including how less than 15% of the money raised with the Ashford scam, described by Nigel Farage at the time, ‘Ukip’s most profitable fund raising idea ever’.
It was Mick McGough who spun and lied slandering those who sought justice when Tom Wise defrauded the EU & Ukip, to protect the criminal actions of Tom Wise! To be fair he did so with such supporters of Tom Wise and his criminality as Nigel Farage, Roger Helmer and the Ukip boot lickers Douglas Denny, Mark Croucher and others, all colluding to cover-up Tom Wise‘s criminality.
Smith fled leaving the accounts in the most unprofessional disarray to be taken over by the clearly self serving subsequent couple of treasurers!
Mick McGough also repeatedly tried to spin and lie to protect his chum Andrew Smith when Andrew Smith mailed out a scurrilous eMail, which this blog published, in which he laid out for Ukip NEC members how best to dupe (fraudulently mislead) The Electoral Commission.
Mick McGough also featured in the report on corrupt practices within Ukip drawn up by Ukip’s then returning officer CLICK HERE
In view of the track record of lies, corruption and spin from Mick McGough there is clearly no reason to believe one word of thge report below – is it just another McGough cover-up for his puppet masters in return for their favours?
McGOUGH, Michael 05
It is sad, both for their supporters and for the electorate at large, to note just what floats to the top in the septic tank that passes for Ukip’s leadership, staff and leadership clique.

report re £1000 donation
13 November 2014
I have examined excel spread sheets bank statements and vouchers/invoices presented to me by the branch
treasurer for the year to date and prior.
The spread sheets represent an
analysed cash/cheque book for the bank account combined/consolidated with an
analysed account of pure cash transactions.
The donation from Robert Mason is recorded as a cash receipt on 1st March 2014. Rather than banking this
amount it was kept as a cash float for paying expenses prior to the May elections.
I HAVE FOUND NO EVIDENCE TO SUGGEST FUNDS HAVE BEEN USED OTHER THAN ON APPROPRIATE BRANCH EXPENSES. 
 
HOWEVER       
1) failure to fully inform the committee and members of the financial transactions has led to unnecessary mistrust.
2) the Treasurer has failed to comply with the rules by not submitting annual branch accounts for the year to 31st
December to Head Office (HO)
3) the Treasurer has failed to complete and return to HO the quarterly donation reports
.
Forms for submission of these reports are sent to treasurers ahead of the quarterly deadline and must be completed and returned even if
donations are NIL. The £1000 donation in contention was not reported to HO in the quarter received but only in the current quarter after the start of my investigation.
4) good practice requires that all monies received are paid into the bank account and any cash required is drawn out in separate transactions.
This ensures that there is a full audit trail.
5) good practice also dictates that records are kept up to date shortly after events not much later.
6) officers have admitted pre-signing blank cheques to enable speedy completion of transactions but this should be avoided in future. If absolutely necessary the cheques should have written at the head ‘not to exceed £x’.
This will limit any potential loss if misused or stolen.
7) whilst proper financial accounts will combine all branch transactions separate records should be maintained for the bank account and for cash transactions.
8) there was a large payment in May for Carnival Security for which there are no receipts.
Knowing the facts of what occurred that day I can understand why this happened but proper receipts must be obtained in future.
9) certain expenses were reimbursed to the Chairman, seemingly, with the approval of the committee. Such approvals should be minuted or expense vouchers signed by other committee members to record such approval.
Going forward I suggest that the treasurer meets with the full committee and one of the ROs for an open book exercise whereby all records may be examined and questions raised to ensure they are completely happy with past transactions.
I suggest that more openness and team working should avoid problems in future.
