Hi,

EU recovers £200,000 from Ukip MEPs accused of misusing funds

Time running out to recoup money from others alleged to have broken rules

The European parliament has recovered more than £200,000 from Ukip MEPs accused of misusing public funds through payments to party workers. But with three weeks to go until European elections, time is running out to recoup money from others alleged to have broken EU rules.

The parliament has suspended the pay of two staff attached to Ukip’s former leader Paul Nuttall and his fellow North West England MEP Louise Bours, the Guardian has learned. Neither MEP is standing for re-election on 23 May, which could make it harder for officials to recover money.

Since the Guardian revealed the parliament’s investigation into Ukip misspending in 2017, £202,667 has been recovered from two current MEPs and one former one.

Nigel Farage was docked half his MEP’s salary for 10 months in 2018, and he is judged to have repaid a £39,653 debt to the EU. European parliament financial controllers said Farage broke the rules by paying a Ukip party worker with EU funds meant to pay for staffing of his MEP office. Farage, who left Ukip in December and now leads the Brexit party, has always denied the charge.

Raymond Finch was docked £61,650 of his MEP’s salary over the employment of two assistants, including Farage’s estranged wife, Kirsten.

Roger Helmer, who stood down as an MEP in 2017 when allegations against him emerged, lost £101,364 of a transition allowance for former MEPs.

While Nuttall and Bours could lose their transitional allowances, it is not clear whether this would be enough to cover the alleged losses from the EU budget.

Elected in 2014, Bours would be entitled to a €40,949 (£35,025) after-tax transition payment, while Nuttall’s stint as an MEP since 2009 could entitle him to €68,428. The payments are based on the length of time served as an MEP, but are not meant to be claimed by ex-politicians with another job or pension.

Earlier calculations put repayment demands on then Ukip MEPs at around £500,000, but cases against two were later closed without any action.

All MEPs have strenuously rejected claims that the rules were broken. Their bloc in the European parliament, the Europe of Freedom and Direct Democracy, has previously described the investigation as “a vindicative campaign” against Eurosceptic MEPs.

Responding to the latest findings, an EFDD spokesman said the parliament had behaved “disgracefully” towards the former employees of Bours and Nuttall. “Both of them have been doing the jobs they have been contracted to do and one of the guys lost his house,” the spokesman said.

Hi,

EU’RE NICKED

Brexit campaign boss is stopped by police for pretending to be a diplomat

Andy Wigmore admitted he was using expired diplomatic plates on his car

A BREXIT campaign chief has been nicked for masquerading as a diplomat on Foreign Office orders.

Leave.EU’s communications director Andy Wigmore was pulled over by cops in his car for using illegal diplomatic plates as well as an expired diplomatic ID card.

The officers also suspected he was driving without insurance when he was detained on the A3 on January 19 last week.

Mr Wigmore is a key ally of Nigel Farage and one of the self-declared four “Bad Boys of Brexit”.

Wigmore was snapped with Farage when the former UKIP leader became the first British politician to meet Donald Trump after he was elected president in 2016.

The prominent campaigner, who has dual nationality with Belize, held diplomatic status for the tiny central American country until it was revoked a year ago.

But Mr Wigmore kept up the pretence, angering the Belizean High Commission in London who asked FCO chiefs to enforce action to halt him.

The police patrol who spotted Mr Wigmore seized his diplomatic plates and ID card on the spot.

The arrest is a big embarrassment for Mr Wigmore and his boss, the multi-millionaire hard Brexit advocate Arron Banks.

It is a criminal offence to impersonate a diplomat, but Mr Wigmore insists he won’t be prosecuted.

After a long roadside row, he also insists he was able to prove he was insured to drive.

Confronted by The Sun, Mr Wigmore admitted last night: “It’s very embarrassing, but it was all just an administrative error.

“I was unaware my number plates had been decommissioned.”

Mr Banks founded the Leave.EU campaign, which fought a bitterly rivalry with Vote Leave, fronted by Boris Johnson.

A Foreign Office spokesman said: “Former diplomats would be treated by the police in exactly the same way as any other member of the public”.

Hi,

Bob Spink found guilty of election fraud

  • 2 hours ago

A former Tory MP and UKIP politician has been found guilty of election fraud.

Bob Spink, 69, former MP for Castle Point, Essex, committed the offences during the Castle Point borough council elections in May last year.

A jury at Southwark Crown Court found him guilty of four counts of permitting a false signature to be included on a nomination form for a UKIP councillor.

UKIP agent James Parkin, 38, of Canvey Island, was also convicted.

He was found guilty on two counts of the same charge.

Judge Ian Graham said: “These types of offences are taken very seriously.”

Jurors heard Spink tricked “elderly and infirm” voters into signing the forms in April 2016, without making it clear what the documents were or which party he represented.

The court heard people in Spink’s constituency signed forms believing they were petitions, and having no idea they were supporting the UKIP candidate in the Castle Point council elections.

Spink claimed everything was above board; that residents knew what they were signing; and that he only introduced the topic of the local elections once he had gained their support for his campaign to become a police and crime commissioner (PCC).

The pair were found guilty by majority verdicts. They will be sentenced in the new year. Both men were released on bail.

Mr Spink, from Benfleet, Essex, was Conservative MP for Castle Point from 1992 to 1997, and again from 2001.

In 2008, he defected from the Conservative Party and joined UKIP, effectively becoming its first MP.

Hi,

interestingly this trial of the failed Ukip MP Bob Spink and his Ukip agent James Parkin seems somewhat arbitarily to have been moved from its planned venue, which as I recall was Basildon, and is now being held out of area at Southwark Crown Court! There seems to have been no reasons given why this fraud case where Bob Spink and his agent are accused of fraud thus corrupting an election – such reasons might have been as it involved National Security or was to be held in full or in part in camera – neither seem likely, we are thus left wondering what strings have been pulled and both how and why!

The article below fails to point out that when standing for election as PCC he was standing on a Ukip ticket!

Ukip’s former MP Bob Spink on trial accused of lying and forging signatures

ACCUSED: Bob Spink

ACCUSED: Bob Spink

A FORMER Dorset county councillor who became Ukip’s first MP is on trial accused of lying to voters and forging signatures.

Bob Spink, 69, allegedly took a “casual and misleading approach” while canvassing and collecting signatures to nominate Ukip candidates ahead of last May’s local elections.

Voters reported seeing “a very large man”, Ukip election agent James Parkin, 38, accompanying Spink collecting signatures, Southwark Crown Court heard.

Dr Spink, who served on Dorset County Council for eight years and was deputy chairman of Poole Conservatives, left Dorset after becoming Conservative MP for Castle Point in Essex. He became Ukip’s first MP in April 2008 after resigning from the Tories, later becoming an independent and losing his seat in 2010.

He lost out in the Essex police and crime commissioner (PCC) elections last year, while his co-defendant Parkin was beaten as a council candidate.

Tom Nicholson, prosecuting, said: “A part of this trial will look at the canvassing methods employed by Dr Spink on the doorstep.”

He added: “Did he use what we would say a casual and misleading approach on the doorstep to obtain signatures?”

None of the Ukip candidates were elected and there is no suggestion that there was anything improper with the 100 signatures obtained by Spink to stand in the PCC election.

Spink denies five counts of submitting false signatures on nomination papers, while Parkin denies six like charges.

The accusations relate to the local election for Castle Point Borough Council in 2016.

Prosecutor Tom Nicholson said: “In short, it is alleged that Dr Spink and Mr Parkin were involved in submitting a number of nomination forms, bearing signatures that had been obtained falsely.”

Jurors heard that prospective council candidates had to secure 10 signatures from local electors, while police and crime commissioner candidates required 100.

Voter Robert Duke discovered his name had been added to a nomination form to his “complete surprise”, the court heard.

“In fact, this signature was a forgery,” said Mr Nicholson.

A complaint was made to police and enquiries revealed Parkin was involved in the form’s completion, the court heard.

Officers then made calls to 128 signatories relating to the other 13 council wards with Ukip candidates. The appeal garnered 96 responses alleging two further forgeries and 26 others claiming they had been misled as to the nature of the document they were signing.

The trial is expected to last four weeks.

Hi,

minded that Hugh Moelwyn Hughes is not only a founder member of Ukip but also a solicitor, very much in touch with both Ukip and the laws under which it has been bound for the last 24 years, I find his letter most interesting.

Moelwyn Hughes, Hugh 01

May I draw your attention to his statement:

In July 2019 we will lose our MEPs, their salaries, their allowances for staff and offices, and access to the funds of ADDE and IDDE. The few remaining paid staff will have to work Stakhanovite hours if they are to keep up with requirements, and in busy campaign periods will cause bottlenecks and delays entirely because they are required to do more than is humanly possible.

The major loss of paid staff means that we must rely on volunteers

to carry out the necessary work and to fund our General Election Campaign.

This is a quite astonishing statement from so senior a member of the party, a founder and chairman/defacto of Ukip in Wales.

This is an outright admission in written form that Ukip has been apparently stealing tax payers’ money via the EU to fund its domestic political activities, staff, offices and elections and will from ‘July 2019’ no longer be able to tap into this unlawful source of money and will no longer be able to fund itself with money obtained illicitly from taxpayers via the EU.

Hugh makes it very clear that Ukip have been dependent on

‘…MEPs, their salaries, their allowances for staff and offices, and access to the funds of ADDE and IDDE.’

This is totally contra the rules of the EU and is a fraudulent use of tax payers’ money.

Let it be noted that Jeffrey Titford, Nigel Farage, Graham Booth, Derek Clarke, Tom Wise and little doubt there have been others have been found guilty of this offence and have had to pay back substantial sums – currently Nigel Farage is under order to repay a further £80,000.

Now we have a published open letter of admission that the entire party has been dependent on monies stolen from the tax payers via the EU.

So just how many £Millions have Ukip purloined since it had its first 3 MEPs Michael Holmes, Jeffrey Titford & Nigel Farage elected almost 20 years ago and will they & successors be liable for  repayment, or like Tom Wise face a custodial sentence for their crimes.

Minded that Diane James was elected leader of Ukip and she and her partner were of some substance, might her rapid resignation have been prompted by the realisation by her partner, who was a competent & well heeled businessman, that their assets could well be attached to cover Ukip debts!

Consider the potentially catastrophic implications for senior members of Ukip past and present and for the party itself!

An open letter to all candidates for the leadership of UKIP

Posted on July 29, 2017 by Hugh Moelwyn Hughes

An open letter to all candidates for the leadership of UKIP:

SOLVING UKIP’S EXECUTIVE PROBLEM

In July 2019 we will lose our MEPs, their salaries, their allowances for staff and offices, and access to the funds of ADDE and IDDE. The few remaining paid staff will have to work Stakhanovite hours if they are to keep up with requirements, and in busy campaign periods will cause bottlenecks and delays entirely because they are required to do more than is humanly possible.

The major loss of paid staff means that we must rely on volunteers

to carry out the necessary work and to fund our General Election Campaign.

In order to attract the maximum number of volunteers to execute the policies decided by the Leader and Governing Body executive activity will have to be devolved to local manageable areas, in which members can drive to a central meeting place within one hour ie. the Counties in England, and sub-regions in Wales, Scotland and London. (Adjustments may be required in the vast sub-regions of the Highlands and Mid & West Wales)

Currently County Branches consist of Chairmen only.

In his satirical depiction of Communism George Orwell described what happened: “All animals are equal, but some animals are more equal than others”, and so the pigs who were greedy for power reduced the other animals to an inferior status, and worked the faithful carthorse to death.

The Orwellian model has no place in a democratic party.

It is insulting to the members who are excluded, and by excluding talent is damaging to the Party.

The Chairman-only model is wholly inadequate to carry out the necessary executive tasks now envisaged.

Dr Alan Sked our first Leader placed this Party in the centre of the classical liberal tradition and in opposition to the top down governance of the pigs in the EU, which was destroying democracy. That was the point of the Party !

Democratic County Branches made up of all of UKIP members’ talents will be able to receive requests from the Leader and Governing Body and to action on them locally.

The County Branches will need the usual complement of Chairman, Secretary and Treasurer plus probably a membership secretary, minute secretary, press officer, fundraiser and every other functionary they can think of, to break the work down into manageable units.

County Branches will be responsible for ensuring that those Constituency Associations which are fully operational should never be interfered with, but that Constituencies which are less well developed are helped in every way.

The County Branch will provide a forum for all members in its constituencies to meet each other, to hear visiting speakers, to overcome the enemy of isolation, and to develop camaraderie, so as to be prepared for campaigning.

All UKIP members within the County will be members of the County Branch.

The constitution for a County Branch will be the same as for a Constituency Association.

Democratic County Branches will be an attractive focus for donations

We had more than 400 Patrons 2 to 3 years ago. Over 200 Patrons have left us!

Patrons need to know where their money is going, and have lost confidence in a party which does not tell them where their money went.

Patrons will give generously to a focussed campaign which is run with financial integrity.

County Branches producing proper accounts will attract donations.

UKIP is a pressure party. Our pressure forced Cameron to call a Referendum, which we won.

Now our task is to overcome backsliding Tories, impractical Corbynistas and treacherous Blairites to secure our exit from the EU and to provide voters with a free trade, free enterprise party with private sector solutions to social problems like housing, and principled opposition to the Marxist programmes which have so beguiled the younger generation.

Democratic County branches can co-ordinate local campaigns, and re-build the Party, based on the policies already identified by the Institute for Economic Affairs, the Taxpayers’ Alliance, the Freedom Association, and our very own Professor Tim Congdon and Gerard Batten MEP.

After July 2019 when the MEP model of funding collapses we will have the nightmare of managing the major requirements of the next General Election with even fewer paid staff.

The inadequacy of HQ staff at the recent General Election is going to get worse.

The Democratic County solution is essential to provide the Executive Deficit.

No other solution has been proposed !!!!!!

UKIP will fail in the next General Election if we do not adopt the Democratic County model.

Hugh Moelwyn Hughes,
A Founder Member of UKIP.

Nigel Farage among Ukip MEPs accused of misusing EU funds

Eight Ukip MEPs including Paul Nuttall may be forced to repay £500,000 if they are found to have breached EU funding rules

Nigel Farage, Paul Nuttall and six other Ukip MEPs are under investigation by the European parliament for alleged misuse of funds, which could lead to repayment demands totalling £500,000.

Financial controllers are looking into eight of Ukip’s 20 MEPs, who are suspected of having broken rules that ban full-time EU-funded parliamentary assistants from working for the national party.

It is understood that Farage and his fellow Ukip MEP Raymond Finch will be asked to repay around £84,000 paid to their joint assistant, Christopher Adams, who is also Ukip’s national nominating officer. Adams is described as one of the party’s “key people” on its website. Parliament officials have suspended Adams’s contract because they are not convinced he was working as an MEP assistant.

Under EU rules, full-time MEP assistants are not allowed to do paid work for a national political party; part-time assistants need to have second jobs, paid and voluntary, vetted by European parliament authorities to prevent a conflict of interest.

Financial controllers are investigating the work of several other MEP assistants, where they suspect a conflict of interest between their EU-paid job and national party role. It is understood three of the assistants worked for Nuttall, who is vying to become Ukip’s second MP in Westminster in the Stoke-on-Trent Central byelection later this month.

Each of the European parliament’s 751 MEPs is entitled to €23,400 a month to pay for staff to run offices in Brussels and their home constituencies, plus a further €4,342 in office expenses. If Ukip MEPs had claimed the full allowance in 2016, the total sums involved would have been €7.3m.

Farage’s wife, Kirsten, is caught up in the investigation because she was paid as an MEP assistant while running her husband’s office for the national party.

Kirsten Farage was named as an assistant to Finch, who represents the party in the south-east of England. He has been asked to repay more than £20,000 over her employment because the European parliament’s financial controllers were not convinced she was doing real work as his assistant.

Finch employed Kirsten Farage in his constituency office to do secretarial work between 2014 and 2016. During the same period, she was full-time office manager for her husband, according to European parliament information.

Roger Helmer, a Conservative defector known for his controversial remarks on climate change and rape, faces a repayment bill of about £95,000 for employing the Ukip chairman, Paul Oakden, as his assistant. Oakden, who held the post of party director while working for Helmer, emerged into the spotlight last autumn as he sought to steady the party during the rocky period of the leadership contests to replace Farage.

One source estimated that Ukip MEPs could be asked to repay about £500,000 in EU funds if the party is shown to have broken the rules in each case currently under investigation. It is understood that the other MEPs being investigated are Jonathan Arnott, Louise Bours, James Carver and Margot Parker.

A Ukip spokesman rejected the allegations. “We have been here [as elected MEPs] since 1999 and have scrupulously applied the rules of the European parliament with very few problems. It would appear that post-Brexit there is an element of vindictiveness in the way in which the European parliament is behaving.

“We are appealing each and every one of the allegations that have been made.”

Helmer, who faces the largest bill known so far, said the parliament administration had “mistakenly” got the idea that Oakden worked for him full time. “So far as I am concerned there is no case to answer – merely an administrative misunderstanding to resolve.”

If MEPs refuse to repay misspent funds, parliament can withhold up to half their annual salaries (€79,332 a year after tax) and daily allowances (€52,104 a year), until the money has been recouped.

The European parliament’s financial controllers began the latest checks after a separate investigation revealed that a Ukip-dominated group in the institution had misspent more than €500,000 of EU money. The Alliance for Direct Democracy in Europe, a Ukip-controlled pan-European party, was found to have spent EU funds on Nigel Farage’s failed attempt to win a seat in Westminster, flouting the ban on using European money for national campaigns.

Parliament is considering extending its investigation to the 2009-14 legislature, when Ukip had 13 MEPs. The current inquiry covers the current parliament, elected in June 2014.

Ukip is not the only party accused of misspending EU money to fund its national activities. The leader of France’s far-right Front National, Marine Le Pen, was last year ordered to repay €339,000, after the EU’s anti-fraud office, Olaf, found she had misused EU funds following a European parliament inquiry. The French presidential hopeful had received EU funds to pay the salaries of two assistants, but the anti-fraud watchdog said the pair worked almost entirely for the national party.

The FN leader missed a deadline at midnight on Tuesday to repay the money and now faces losing half her salary and allowance. Le Pen has denied allegations of fraud and says she will not “submit to persecution” by repaying the money.

The European parliament has played a vital role in Ukip’s political success, giving the Eurosceptic party a platform and funding it has never matched on the domestic stage.

A spokesperson for the European parliament declined to comment on the ongoing investigation. Olaf referred questions back to the European parliament.

Nicholas Aiossa, a campaigner at Transparency International, said the Ukip case may need to be referred to the EU anti-fraud office. “Recovery of these funds is essential, but the parliament needs to take a harder look at whether MEPs have been intentionally engaging in fraudulent activities and if so they should refer these cases to Olaf.”

Did Ukip tell truth in legal paperwork for Stoke-on-Central by-election? from Mark Pack’s Tweet

As the Electoral Commission says:

You should be aware that it is a serious offence to include false information on any of your nomination forms. Providing a false statement could invalidate your election, and is also punishable by an unlimited fine and/or six months imprisonment in England and Wales (12 months on indictment), or, in Scotland a fine of up to £10,000 and/or imprisonment.

See the .pdf of candidates proving Paul Andrew Nuttall has committed a criminal electoral fraud by claiming as his address a property confirmed unoccupied and to let at the relevant date, it would seem – as per Michael Crick’s investigation & photographs – obviously to panic when caught and then dash out and rent the premises is akin to the Hatton Garden burglars stealing £29M but expecting to face no charges if when caught they returned the loot!

Farage ‘no US work permit for Fox role’ | The SKWAWKBOX from Women Defy UKIP’s Tweet

Farage ‘no US work permit for Fox role’

wotnowp

One can only imagine that Nigel Farage is not quite having the start to 2017 that he must have been expecting.

Following the referendum result, his cameo in Donald Trump’s election campaign, talk of a possible role as ambassador or intermediary to the US and then the announcement of his new role as a pundit on Rupert Murdoch’s Fox News, Mr Farage must have felt like he was flying high in the full, warming rays of the sun.

Instead, it seems his woes – embarrassing ones at that – are piling up.

A couple of weeks ago, in Washington with a ‘golden ticket’ personal invitation to attend Trump’s inauguration as a VIP snug in his breast pocket, Farage was proudly looking forward to his place on the platform and to basking in Trump’s reflected glow at the expensive ‘after party’ he had arranged in the new President’s honour across a whole floor of a plush hotel.

Then, at the last minute, Trump or his team rescinded his invitation so that he was relegated to smoking a fag on a street corner while the VIPs enjoyed warm hospitality elsewhere – and then Trump failed to turn up at the party, leaving Farage to sing his praises in his absence to save face.

The SKWAWKBOX understands that Mr Farage will not be going to the US to perform his punditry role conveniently while enjoying Fox’s hospitality, because his application for a work permit has been refused. This means that he will have to be filmed in a UK – or, ironically, an EU – location and beamed to the US instead.

US regulations allow work permits to be issued to foreigners for television purposes, but applicants have to meet certain qualifying criteria. There are a couple of categories under which Mr Farage might have hoped to qualify – category ‘O’ for television or ‘P-3’ for artists or entertainers. Here are the criteria:

wp criteria.png

It would appear that the US Immigration Service is not overly keen to facilitate Mr Farage’s television career and considers that he is a man of no particular ability or merit, nor represents anything worthwhile culturally. Considering even Piers Morgan got one, that’s quite a come-down.

If only the BBC had been as perceptive, the UK might not be in the quandary in which it now finds itself.

I understand German Police are still finalising their investigation regarding Nigel Farage’s fraudulent application for a German passport CLICK HERE, a criminal action which is considered serious in Germany & earns a custodial sentence of upto 5 years – Well as an MEP Farage has been party to the EU Arrest Warrant regarding others, in the past!

Nigel Farage, Paul Nuttall and six other Ukip MEPs are under investigation by the European parliament for alleged misuse of funds, which could lead to repayment demands totalling £500,000.

Financial controllers are looking into eight of Ukip’s 20 MEPs, who are suspected of having broken rules that ban full-time EU-funded parliamentary assistants from working for the national party.

It is understood that Farage and his fellow Ukip MEP Raymond Finch will be asked to repay around £84,000 paid to their joint assistant, Christopher Adams, who is also Ukip’s national nominating officer. Adams is described as one of the party’s “key people” on its website. Parliament officials have suspended Adams’s contract because they are not convinced he was working as an MEP assistant.

Under EU rules, full-time MEP assistants are not allowed to do paid work for a national political party; part-time assistants need to have second jobs, paid and voluntary, vetted by European parliament authorities to prevent a conflict of interest.

Financial controllers are investigating the work of several other MEP assistants, where they suspect a conflict of interest between their EU-paid job and national party role.

Paul Nuttall’s Expenses Under Investigation & Seem To Be Corrupt, but I guess there is nothing new in that claim relative to Ukip …

Hi,

#Nuttall: huge fraud investigation – just where IS office he’s claiming for?

UKIP leader Paul Nuttall is, it was announced today, set to stand as as his party’s candidate in the Stoke Central parliamentary by-election triggered by the resignation of (technically) Labour MP Tristram Hunt. The decision comes after jibes of cowardice on social media when it looked like he may opt not to contest the seat:

Paul Nuttall gets the airtime of a Westminster politician but he doesn’t even have the guts to stand in the Stoke by-election. Coward

Mr Nuttall has been a UKIP MEP (Member of the European Parliament) for some years and placed 736th of 756 MEPs for attendance according to Wikipedia, which fits with the comments this author has received from UKIP insiders.

Last month, he faced a grilling from the BBC’s Andrew Marr about false claims to have a PHD and to have played professional football for Tranmere Rovers, which he blamed on over-enthusiastic interns, and this week the SKWAWKBOX raised questions about his claims to have been present, as a 12yo boy, at the Hillsborough disaster in which 96 Liverpool fans were killed.

Many consider Paul Nuttall to be a dangerous and unscrupulous fantasist. But he is also under investigation, along with a range of UKIP officials, by the EU’s ‘OLAF‘ anti-fraud unit in relation to an alleged €20 million fraud in which Nuttall is named for allegedly claiming large amounts of EU funds for the rent and costs of his MEP’s office. The OLAF case reference for the investigation is OF/2016/0836/01.

The full allegation document is below in PDF format, but the section relating to Nuttall’s office costs states:

olaf

Paul Nuttall’s website provides this address for his office:

UKIP North West
PO Box 2034
Liverpool
L69 2DG

Here is L69 2DG on Google Maps:

l69-2dg

Lots of red Royal Mail vans. And on Google Street view:

l69 2dg 2.png

This author has visited the building in question and found no indication of a UKIP office. It appears to be simply a rented postbox for correspondence purposes – which would cost a few pounds to rent but nothing like the expense of an office.

That said, it’s not uncommon for an organisation to have a postbox address separate to its actual office location. So could Paul Nuttall’s physical office be elsewhere?

If so, it’s extremely well-hidden. There is a mention of an office in Nuttall’s home town of Bootle – but this dates back to 2010 and appears to have been a very short-term rental for Nuttall’s attempt to win the Bootle parliamentary seat in that year, which is fairly common practice for candidates – put up a few signs and posters in a vacant shop and use it as a base for the campaign, although that is not how Nuttall described it at the time on his website:

nuttall office 2010.png

The Google Streetview of the same building, which dates to Jun 2014, shows simply an empty shop again:

croxteth st 2014.png

.So it’s clear that it was no kind of permanent MEP’s office for Nuttall.

So far, this blog has been unable to turn up any physical, UK location for an MEP’s office belonging to/rented by Paul Nuttall – and certainly the allegations currently being investigated by OLAF state that the Sefton Street PO Box is the official office address being used and claimed for by him.

But that is not the full extent of the allegations OLAF is looking at. The dossier also alleges that:

  • Nuttall is claiming for 3 staff for his office who, in fact, have never worked there (there is no ‘there’) or in any sense for his ‘constituency office’ – and at least one is based hundreds of miles away in South Thanet
  • these 3 staff do not do any work for Nuttall as an MEP but are involved purely with UKIP party matters and campaigning
  • he is claiming costs for a list of assistants – all but one of whom is completely fictitious
  • Nuttall invents his own invoices and rubber-stamps them to support the ‘expenses’

The OLAF case findings are scheduled to be published next month, at which point we will have a formal verdict on these matters.

Until then, they remain allegations – but allegations which ought to be of intense interest to voters in Stoke Central and indeed across the country, especially in light of the admittedly false claims already associated with him and the other apparent inconsistencies in his ‘CV’.

Beppe Grillo & His Italian 5 Star Movement Seek To Abandon Ukip & EFDD, that they have made no claim to change their views yet seek to join pro EU membership parties in other groups rather than remain with Ukip is a concerning indictment of Ukip! …

Hi,
it does rather look as if now that Ukip and the EFDD Group are no longer officially led by Nigel Farage and Ukip slides closer to oblivion bereft of a credible leader of any caliber they are losing what few allies they once had.
It is no secret that Nigel Farage and his leadership team and his vehicle for self aggrandisement, Ukip, are under investigation relative to upto £20M over the last few years, milked from the public purse – this may well be the primary reason their old allies are seeking to distance themselves and possibly thereby avoid investigation themselves.
Already Nigel Farage’s personal aid and advisor George Cottrell was arrested in America whilst travelling with Farage and has pleaded guilty to some 20 criminal offences and is currently held pending sentence with a possibility of around 20 years in prison CLICK HERE.
Nigel Farage is also independently under investigation for passport and identity/nationality fraud in Germany that could well lead to his prosecution and incaceration, a matter over and above the fraud investigations by the EU and various criminal situations for which he may be called to account in Britain.
Little wonder 5 Star seek to distance themselves!
With Beppe Grillo’s Movement probably leaving the EFDD the very group itself slides closer to having insufficient members and EU flags on its membership to be a Group in its own right – such a collapse would of course be catastrophic for Ukip and its income and without the devious deal making abilities of Farage, and his abilities as an entertainer in some surroundings, there is little probability that Nuttall could hold the party together, in the long term.

Italy’s maverick 5-Star Movement should cut ties with the anti-European Union UK Independence Party (UKIP) and consider hooking up with the Liberals in the European Parliament, 5-Star founder Beppe Grillo said on Sunday.

If the surprise switch goes ahead, it would see 5-Star enter mainstream European politics and move away from the anti-system fringes, a shift that might reassure other EU capitals that have grown uneasy about its rising popularity.

Writing on his blog, Grillo said his party was in talks with the Alliance of Liberals and Democrats for Europe (ALDE) and asked 5-Star members to back the initiative in an online ballot.

ALDE is headed by former Belgian prime minister Guy Verhofstadt. He is a keen European federalist and his strong, pro-EU views would seem at odds with the eurosceptic 5-Star, which has previously ridiculed the liberal leader.

Grillo said he had also approached the Greens about a possible tie-up, but was rebuffed, adding ALDE was the only group willing to discuss an accord with his movement.

The anti-establishment 5-Star won 17 seats in the last European election in 2014 and linked up with Nigel Farage’s UKIP, which had 22 seats, to form the so-called Europe of Freedom and Direct Democracy (EFDD) party.

Five Star Movement’s founder calls for vote on quitting Farage bloc

Beppe Grillo says his populist party no longer shares common goals with Ukip and recommends leaving Eurosceptic grouping

Beppe Grillo, a comedian turned politician, said in a post on his blog that since Farage had led Ukip to Britain voting to leave the EU, the two parties no longer shared common goals and he recommended leaving the Europe of Freedom and Direct Democracy (EFDD).

“Recent events in Europe, such as Brexit, have led us to reconsider the nature of the EFDD group,” Grillo wrote. “With the extraordinary success of the leave campaign, Ukip achieved its political objective: to leave the European Union.

“Let’s discuss the concrete facts: Farage has already abandoned the leadership of his party and British MEPs will leave the European parliament in the next legislature. Until then, our British colleagues will be focused on developing the choices that will determine the UK’s political future.”

Grillo and Farage forged an alliance over lunch in Brussels after 2014’s European elections, in which Ukip took the largest share of the vote in Britain and M5S came second in Italy after winning 17 seats.

Both said at the time that the group was aimed at “restoring freedom and national democracy”, with Farage adding: “Expect us to fight the good fight to take back control of our countries’ destinies.”

In a move that would see his party mesh with European liberals, Grillo has called an online referendum, scheduled for Sunday and Monday, on breaking away and instead forming a new group with the Alliance of Liberals and Democrats for Europe (ALDE), led by the former Belgian prime minister, Guy Verhofstadt, who is also the EU’s chief Brexit negotiator.

Grillo has long called for a referendum on Italy’s membership of the euro currency, but not on Italy leaving the EU.

With ALDE’s 68 MEPs, the alliance could become the “third political force in the European parliament”, Grillo wrote, while pointing to the fact that his party had only voted alongside Ukip about 20% of the time within the past few years.

He said the two shared values linked to “direct democracy, transparency, freedom and honesty”.

“With our vote we can make a difference and influence the result of many important decisions to counter the European establishment,” Grillo added.

Farage said in a statement: “In political terms it would be completely illogical for Five Star to join the most Euro fanatic group in the European parliament. The ALDE group doesn’t support referenda or the basic principle of direct democracy. ALDE are also the loudest voice for a EU army. I suspect if Five Star joins ALDE it’s support will not last long.”

A Ukip spokesman said: “Both Ukip and Five Star are free to choose to stay or quit a political relationship. While it’s interesting that some Five Star MEPs adamantly wish to stay in the EFDD group, as adults we wish them all the best whatever they do.”

Hi,

Exclusive: UKIP Leader Paul Nuttall Facing EU Funding Fraud Probe

By Kieran Corcoran | 7:42 am, December 8, 2016

The leader of UKIP is facing investigation by EU authorities over links to a dodgy donations scandal which allegedly saw a political group he runs fraudulently claim huge sums of money from European taxpayers.

Heat Street can reveal that Paul Nuttall, who was chosen to succeed Nigel Farage last week, was also president of a Eurosceptic think-tank which has been targeted in the official probe.

Senior investigators are so sure that his group is at fault that they are pushing to deny them €89,000 of promised public funding.

Until recently Nuttall led the Initiative for Direct Democracy in Europe (IDDE), which distributes funds to Eurosceptic parties across the continent, a position he took over in 2015.

The IDDE was recently named by a European Parliament watchdog as one of two organisations allegedly trying to circumvent EU funding rules to get their hands on more funding.

This in turn sparked an investigation by the UK’s Electoral Commission centred specifically on UKIP.

And according to new documents passed to Heat Street, and reproduced in full below, investigators suspect that the IDDE secured illicit donations from sympathetic businessmen in return for lucrative contracts.

The cash was allegedly necessary to meet a threshold for EU funding which requires groups like the IDDE to get 15% of its revenue from other sources.

The revelations will prove a headache for Nuttall, coming so soon after he took the helm of a party rocked by successive scandals and defections since Nigel Farage stepped down in the wake of the UK’s Brexit referendum.

A spokesman for the IDDE said: “Paul Nuttall is not the IDDE President. He resigned when he began the Leadership race.”

The group has so far declined to comment on the specifics of the case.

The full documents revealing the scope of the investigation – and the recommendation that the EU withhold further funding from IDDE – are reproduced here in full:

Could these various fraud revelations be starting to explain why Diane James refused to sign on as leader of Ukip as she became aware that Nigel Farage may well have resigned to protect himself and pass on the liability for the frauds to the new leader!
Could it be that the closer Diane James came to the job of leadership the more concerned her experienced and competent £Millionaire partner became regards her pending take over of liabilities. There is something of a myth in Ukip that although their leadership and NEC are jointly and severally liable for the liabilities of the business called Ukip that they are in some way indemnified by the fact that a few years ago Ukip formed itself into a Limited Company to potentially indemnify its members from liability for Ukip debts.
I cautioned at the time that this commercial move did not indemnify them against fraud! This information was suppressed.
I would hazard a guess that Nigel Farage being aware of the parlous state of Ukip’s finances and the various fraud investigations underway and the extent of the frauds, is no longer a director as al;though he has taken moves to hold his monies off shore he is still a man of considerable substance with assets that can readily be attached.
One wonders if Steven Woolfe ande Susanne Evans are aware of just how close a call they may have escaped and if it has dawned on the foolish Paul Nuttall with his dodgey CV has even begun to realise the danger he is now in as the new leader of Ukip.
One is tempted to ask what happened to incredibly unmemorable Steve Crowther, who suddenly vanish – did he suddenly realise the possible extent of his liability?

Greg_L-W.

Ex-Ukip MEP guilty of huge fraud

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

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

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

The offences took place between November 2004 and July 2010.

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

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

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

A date for sentencing has yet to be set.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

etc. etc. etc.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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


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

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

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

“The consistency of your dishonesty is breathtaking.”

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

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

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