Bruce Lawson on UKFP and that money!

Posted by juniusukip on March 31, 2009

I have been approached by one of my numerous contacts in UKFP and have been asked to post the following information:

“Bruce Lawson, former National Treasurer, confirms that he never handled any Ind/Dem money during his tenure as UKIP National Treasurer between May 2006 and October 2007.

At least he turns up for business meetings unlike others!

The Welsh Assembly election expenditure of £160,997 (although badly over budget) was transparently accounted for ”.

He has made this statement to refute the allegations made on the internet.

Both Robin Page and Petrina Holdsworth are happy to accept his statement regarding his time as Treasurer and are liasing with him as a member of the UKFP Steering Committee.

Bruce Lawson is a very energetic and useful member of that committee.

UKF is getting lots of new members -see Democracy Forum (LINK)

Await further developments soon.

End of statement.

I hope you get that website sorted out. It needs a total revamp!

Fascism in UKIP: And now they even appoint chairmen without bothering to consult the members!

Posted by juniusukip on March 30, 2009

The other week I revealed that Peter Baden had resigned as chairman of UKIP Corby and East Northants. See LINK

It has now emerged that Don Ransom – Derek Clark’s regional organiser – has been appointed their new branch chairman by UKIP HQ. In an astonishing display of arrogance this was done without anyone at UKIP HQ bothering to consult the committee of that branch!

Needless to say they are outraged and have refused to accept him as their chairman.

I should also add that last year Ransom (pictured above with Steve Allison) was reported to the Police for assaulting Ian Gilman – a UKIP member and former East Midlands MEP candidate.

Mr Gilman’s statement now forms part of a file that has been passed to the Director of Public Prosecutions.

Derek Clark is under investigation by OLAF – the EU’s anti-fraud office.

Derek Clark OLAF Case Number: D/007/033/04.09.08

Derek Clark OLAF Investigation Number: DD/FD-D2008.A1/7133/OF/2008/0240

Is Derek Clark – a man accused of fraud – the sort of person you want representing Great Britain for another five years?

And yet ANOTHER UKIP branch folds

Posted by juniusukip on March 29, 2009

Peter Cole has revealed that UKIP UKIP South West Beds Branch has folded.

It appears that no one was prepared to be appointed chairman, secretary or treasurer after the people holding those positions resigned.

UKIP East is clearly in crisis. Stuart Wheeler’s £100,000 donation will not stop the rot as most of that money will go to the South East to finance Farage’s campaign.

Look at the facts:

Bob Spink MP has left.

Branches are closing and membership is falling.

Funds are down.

Peter Reeve – the Regional Organiser – has been reported to Cambridgeshire for assaulting a fellow member.

Well publicised meetings featuring UKIP’s leadership only manage to attract 5o people.

The MEP list was rigged.

David Bannerman – a proven liar – is their lead MEP candidate.

Need I go on?

John West’s legal action against UKIP

Posted by juniusukip on March 28, 2009

It looks like UKIP will be facing a very costly court case. I would suggest that they don’t spend Mr Wheeler’s donation just yet. They may need it to pay their legal costs!

Taken from GLW’s blog:

After a 45 minute conference with one of the top Silks at Matrix Chambers and some excellent details to study, plus answers to a number of questions that I had the opportunity to put together with John West’s clarifications and his solicitor – now comes the time for our own deliberations.

The Silk was able to show various ways forward, each with its own benefits and its own costs – there is no problem on funding merely a question of just how far it is worth pursuing EUkip and which aspects provide the best course of action.On the principle of if one conjoins in a mud wrestling competition with pond life one must expect duplicity, dishonesty and corruption it is MY PERSONAL judgement that although, as the Judge in the allocation hearing advised a Judicial Review – the standards of provenance and timing are more critical and although the penalties for EUkip may prove greater the case can proceed with greater certainty of a conclusively beneficial outcome through other means.

EUkip can always use the defence that they have a reputation of dishonesty and corruption easily proven and irrefutable for our prosecution case, therefore to expect honesty or integrity from them when entering an agreement contractually is unreasonable. This defence of implied expectation of dishonesty might stand up in a Judicial Review leaving the matter to fall on a timed out basis.

Delaying still leaves the possibility of what is normally known as a writ of mandamus though now dumbed down in nomenclature so that even the thickest of the plod will recognise it as ‘A Mandate’ though a term which does not convey its ability to those with more than 3 brain cells. A policy changed by the present Government to more readily align with the dumbed down education system they force upon us – just as, although against the will of the Lord Chancellor, the scope of Judicial Review has been much broadened in the last couple of years to include many more bodies than the formerly narrow field of public bodies, now including more aspects of the structure of Governance even including the some 7,500 QUANGOs mainly created by the present Government as a mop of and sop to the unemployed and unemployable new middle class.

Therefore let us consider the other alternatives where the probabilities are greater and where the verdict is a near certainty, leading to more substantial compensation, rather than a more consequential outcome!

It is also worth considering that the QC’s time is costing at £500/hour research/opinion and £1,000/hour conference and considerably more in Court time although if we went to a Judicial Review as the Judge suggested the costs may outweigh the gains, thus it is potentially wise to make the matter self liquidating by taking the damages from the lesser case to pay the costs of the greater albeit the clear probability is that costs will be awarded in view of the extensive and irrefutable evidence held.

That the possibility of a Judicial Review is in no way harmed by current abeyisance EUkip will be in receipt of a letter concerning the first steps on Monday or Tuesday, which will leave them in no doubt that their position is parlous and perpetuation of their crano rectally retentive avoidance will harm their position yet further.

It is clear that EUkip is aware that it has created for itself problems beyond their wit and competence and is resorting in the short term to an attempt to discredit those it has created as enemies – this of course will prove massively damaging when the cases come to court.The unleashing of a series of naive kids and useful idiots masquerading with silly names will serve them ill as the linkage of their lies can be clearly established and no amount of further dishonest slurs can do other than exacerbate EUkip’s already notable problems.

UKIP East Midlands is in serious trouble

Posted by juniusukip on March 27, 2009

On 18th March UKIP held a meeting in Nottingham to discuss the forthcoming Euro campaign.

At the meeting Derek Clark revealed to a concerned audience that UKIP East Midlands has just £8,000 to fight the Euro elections. This is clearly not enough to fight a decent campaign (in March 2004 they had well over £23,000).

Many UKIPPERS are now resigning themselves to the fact that UKIP is extremely unlikely to win any seats in the region. They also believe that the BNP are likely to do very well and will undoubtedly take many UKIP votes.

Across the region leaflet drops have failed to generate support. On many occasions the response from the public has been quite hostile.

But should UKIPPERS be so surprised? After all, Clark betrayed the people who elected him by signing UKIP up to the principle of “subsidiarity”. By accepting the principle of subsidiarity UKIP was now accepting the authority of the union to take decisions which are not devolved to national or regional government.

At the same time Clark also signed up to the principle of “reforming” the Common Agricultural Policy, something which UKIP had previously refused to recognise at all.

At a single stroke of a pen he betrayed everything that UKIP was supposed to be against.

OLAF’s investigation into Clark is also moving forward. They will be interviewing Niall Warry – UKIP’s former office manager – about Clark next month.

Is Derek Clark the sort of man you want representing Great Britain for another five years?

Graham Dines: Jeffrey Titford’s ‘useful idiot’

Posted by juniusukip on March 26, 2009

I would seriously question the impartiality of Graham Dines – the political editor of the East Anglian Daily Times – when it comes to writing about Jeffrey Titford and UKIP.

Over the last week Mr Dines has been indulging in a particularly nauseating Jeffrey Titford love fest

On March 20th in an article (LINK) entitled ‘ UKIP is alive, well and raring to go’ Dines boosted of his ‘strong relationship’ with the MEP and said that it was ‘regrettable’ that Titford was retiring.

The article clearly illustrates why Dines is bad journalist. At no point in the article does he even attempt to question Titford about the numerous UKIP scandals that have surfaced over the last few months. Indeed, rather than present a serious assessment of UKIP’s electoral chances he simply parrots what he is told by Titford.
On March 25th Dines was back with yet another piece praising his buddy. In the article in question he presents a airbrushed account of Titford’s political career.

In Dines’ fantasy UKIP world unpalatable facts and awkward questions are conveniently ignored.

For instance:

He makes no mention of the fact that Jeffrey Titford used to be a member of the extremist New Britain Party.

He makes no mention of the fact that Jeffrey Titford no longer lives in the Eastern Region. He also neglects to inform his readers that Titford failed to tell UKIP members or the public that he had moved to the south coast.

He makes no mention of the fact that in recent months Jeffrey Titford’s visits to Brussels have become very few and far between.

He makes no mention of the fact that Jeffrey Titford is under investigation by OLAF.

He makes no mention of the fact that Titford’s former office manager has made a statement to OLAF about Titford’s alleged misuse of EU funds.

He makes no mention of the fact that Titford has been accused of witness intimidation.

He makes no mention of the fact that UKIP’s own returning expressed concerns over the MEP selection process in the Eastern Region.

He makes no mention of the fact that many UKIPPERS have resigned in disgust over the way UKIP is run. He also forgot to mention that Bob Spink MP has left UKIP and now wants nothing more to do with the Party. Any competent and sincere journalist would have raised this with Titford and demanded answers.

One has to wonder why Dines is so keen to hide the truth about UKIP from his readers? One also has to wonder why Archant Newspapers continue to employ a man who is clearly incapable of telling fact from fiction?

Ralph Atkinson to be removed from UKIP MEP list

Posted by juniusukip on March 25, 2009

The shameful and undemocratic way in which the UKIP leadership is ignoring the wishes of the membership by purging the MEP lists of candidates who have not demonstrated sufficient subservience to Farage, is likely to bring the Party to court in more than one region.

We have already witnessed the removal of Dr Eric Edmond and Victor Webb. Trevor Colman also faces removal from the SW list.

The next region to be hit will be London. Ralph Atkinson – second on the list – is set to be removed by the NEC in a matter of days. Whilst his use of the database to phone London members to canvass support was deemed OK at the time, Farage has now deemed Atkinson’s actions unacceptable, and is seeking to clear him out, in order to make way for Zuckerman.

There is also an as yet unspecified charge relating to Atkinson, which I can confirm relates to his alleged anti-social behaviour whilst under the influence in Brussels.

Atkinson was elected to second place on the London list by the members, and any decision concerning his candidacy should be made by them, not by the dimwits of the NEC acting on Farage’s orders. He is a hard working, if somewhat eccentric, activist, and that Farage should repay his loyalty to the party and to the leadership in this way tells us something of the man and his morals.

Derek Clark‘s betrayal of the British people: The proof

Posted by juniusukip on March 25, 2009

In a previous article I revealed that Derek Clark had sacked Tony Ellwood – Clark’s political researcher – following disagreements between the two.

The disagreements started after Clark went to Bucharest – at the behest of Farage – and signed a declaration espousing the principle of “subsidiarity”. Prior to this UKIP has always been in favour of total withdrawal from the EU. By accepting the principle of subsidiarity UKIP was now accepting the authority of the union to take decisions which are not devolved to national or regional government.

At the same time Clark also signed up to the principle of “reforming” the Common Agricultural Policy, something which UKIP had previously refused to recognise at all.

Mr Ellwood naturally felt that this was a betrayal of everything UKIP stood for.

Above is a copy of the Bucharest Declaration. Derek Clark is the last name on the list.

In a single moment Derek Clark betrayed both his country and his people. Is this the sort of man you want representing Great Britain for another five years?

Derek Clark is under investigation by OLAF – the EU’s anti-fraud office.

Douglas Denny is a liar: That’s official folks!

Posted by juniusukip on March 24, 2009

Last week I posted an article on the British Democracy Forum. It was also posted on here ( LINK).

This article concerned the disgraceful treatment of John West. In this expose I pointed out that both Douglas Denny and Michael Zuckerman had accused Mr West of being mentally ill.

Within an hour of posting Denny – Farage sock puppet, UKIP NEC member and useful idiot – posted the following comment:

“It is a lie to say I have accused Mr. West of mental illness”.

At 4.48 he again denied that he had said that Mr West was mentally ill:

“My “story” is that any claim that I have accused Mr. West of mental illness is a lie. Direct and unequivocal”.

He then accused me of lying:

“I will not allow that Mr. ‘Junius’ is confused, as he is simply a liar”.

And has been proven to be a liar on a number of occasions here on this forum time and again. Why do I call him a liar – because he has promulgated “information” here on this forum which he says is true and I know with certainty to be otherwise … and obviously done with the intent to deceive.

In other words, it follows therefore he is a LIAR”.

Unfortunately for Mr Denny these words came back to haunt when Greg Lance-Watkins published an email written by Douglas Denny in 2008:

From: douglas denny

To: Geoffrey Collier

Sent: Thursday, October 02, 2008 6:03 PM

Subject: Re: Politics and the need for wisdom.

Geoffrey,

As I have said before – I quite like you as a person – always pleasant and cheerful, full of bonhomie and quite fun / in fact highly amusing to listen to your ramblings, but you are the Tommy Cooper of politics: great fun but no substance.

You have been telling me for far too long about the demise of UKIP; the demise of various leaders of same; dire happenings to and about individuals and events which were going to be the downfall of UKIP. (Like Ashford …I recall was going to become the Achilles Heel of UKIP with the Income Tax people down on our necks like a ton of bricks you once said ad nauseum…. {wot happened to that then?}…….)

None of which has happened yet. You are the boy who cries ‘wolf’ – and have done so too many times for me to take you seriously anymore.

UKIP will continue like a planet in its orbit just the same with or without your protestations of doom and despondency.

For my part I am heartilly sick of the obvious machinations of the group of malcontents (of which you are one) who are trying to consistently bring down the leader, and UKIP in general with your bleatings about “probity” and “cleaning-up” UKIP. It is all (sorry for the expletive which I know you do not approve of but is appropriate here on a one to one basis with someone I know) – a complete load of bollocks !

I am big enough, old enough and ugly enough to know the difference between reasoned, reasonable, antipathy and prolonged unreasoned attack. You are into the latter category.

I do not know your background sufficiently well to know whether you are merely a willing dupe in this process, as a small bit-part acolyte of another outside conspiracy/agency involved; or whether you are just suffering from OCD with an obsessive fixation with UKIP and Farage/Ashford in particular; either way you display an overly obsessive disposition to what is only a small political party hammering its way into the British political scene with minor difficulties which by comparison with the major parties are piffling.

This obsessive condition seems to be a common disorder too with some in (and out of) UKIP, in that John West displays the same kind of disposition; and GLW too; and Edmond ….in fact all the “malcontents” … could it be that the commonality is an anti-UKIP network? or are you all mad?

I do know you are part of a network using the internet e-mail system for co-respondence which appears to have the objective of how you can coordinate attacks on UKIP. You have made mistakes in the past handling information I gave you on a one-to-one basis which I know with certainty link you with GLW …and yes I know your protestations about never having any contact with him – which is bollocks too – as indirect contact is still viable through your anti-UKIP network and you well know that.

The tragedy of it is, I used to look up to you and your elevated seniority in UKIP in the early days of knowing you, when you were sensible, and you used to speak great sense at the Chichester meetings and think you were a great person, a philosopher who looked deeply into the issues and came out with profound wisdom….. then you went away somewhere and had a lobotomy and returned full of bile and spittle and a burning hatred to bring down Nigel Farage and UKIP along with it. Everything then on from you was nonsense. You now appear to everyone on the forum as a figure of fun ..and it is of your own making with your outrageously silly ideas – especially about Ashford. Most unfortunate.

I look on with amazement at the antics of the idiot John West; and others… and have had sent to me in an e-mail the latest unmitigated drivel of GLW about D.Campbell-Bannerman (and who in the public domain gives a toss what his name is? no one is the answer, and certainly not I ! ); and then there is your contribution every now and then – like the one to me just now – and I think to myself.. these people are either completely mad, or are a part of a conspiracy.I go for the conspiracy.

I think you (all) are linked to BNP or the Conservatives through an organised network to destabilise UKIP. You can deny it as much as you like – but I consider the signs are there clearly enough to indicate that, and using the Serlock Holmes technique .. when everything else has been eliminated and you are left with only one alternative, then that has to be the truth of it. You are part of it Geoffrey, whether you actually know it – or not.

As for all your doomsday scenario you have portreyed …. we shall see. None of your predicitions has come to pass yet. Maybe you might get lucky and something might come of it. I doubt it very much; and if it does, I doubt any of it will be a problem to UKIP.

The world situation with the banking sytem in dissarray, and the Euro close to collapse, our job in UKIP might just be superfluous anyway as we watch the whole thing collpase in recriminations between the EU member states arguing about how to save the financial system from collapse and hanging onto their money and economies.Your bleatings/protestations and those of the other malcontents pale into insignificance………

Best regards,

Douglas.

P.S. ignor spelling/typos canot be bothered to check… you’ll get the meaning of it all. P.P.S I am not bothered if you want to promulgate this, it will be interesting to see what you do …

End of email.

For some strange reason Mr Denny has declined to comment on the publication of this damning email!

Denny’s rambling email clearly illustrates that he is of limited intelligence. His obsession with ridiculous conspiracy theories is particularly sad. The poor man has become so paranoid that he is now convinced that anyone who disagrees with him must be working for the BNP, MI5 or the Tories! He even believes that MI5 are bugging his house. Why MI5 would bother to spy on such an insignificant little man is anyone’s guess!

However, his lack of education can never excuse his dishonesty and lies.

Denny is prepared to endorse corruption, sit on kangaroo courts and support Farage instigated witch-hunts. He lies about decent, honest members and is quite prepared to use mental illness as a term of abuse. Indeed, anyone who questions him is ‘mad’.

Douglas Denny is a disgrace to the Euro-realist cause.

It is a great pity that he cancelled his planned move to New Zealand. Their loss would have been our gain!

Farage let off the hook by inept BBC reporter

Posted by juniusukip on March 23, 2009

The person who ‘interviewed’ Farage on Westminster Hour was truly pathetic. Mr Norman Smith had obviously not done his homework and so a golden opportunity chance to put Farage’s ‘leadership’ under the spotlight was lost.

No mention was made of the well publicised resignations/defections from UKIP.

No mention was made of the OLAF investigations.

No mention was made of NEC expulsions.

Farage was not asked to justify his ridiculous claim that the BNP had infiltrated UKIP.

Farage was not questioned about Libertas UK – a political party that was set-up by his own Press Officer.

Farage was not questioned about the posting of a UKIP candidates MEP interview on YouTube.

And so on.

In the interview Farage made comments about UKIP members who had made ‘criminal accusations’ and therefore should be ‘chopped off at the legs’. This was clearly a reference to John West who had complained to the police about Jeffrey Titford. Unbelievably this statement was allowed to pass without comment from the interviewer!

Presumably the interviewer approves of a party leader making threats of violence against a member who did his civic duty and reported a crime to the Police!

Farage then went on to attack candidates who were alleged to have told people not to vote UKIP. Again, this comment was allowed to pass unchallenged.

Dr Eric Edmond was also less than impressed with the interview:

I worked on forecasting techniques and forecasts for many years. One of the things I learned was that the average forecast ex-ante invariably out performs the previously single best forecast measured ex-post and that the reason for this was that even the worst individual forecast contains nuggets of information that can add something to the overall picture. BobFM writes worse than anyone else on the British Democracy Forum and he always parrots the Farage line. This morning he did include the link to Mr Farage’s latest interview on the BBC programme Westminster hour . I was not aware of this interview. I am grateful to BobFM for posting it. I give the URL below. Click on it if you wish to listen to it.

Mr Farage was bleating on about party discipline, a favourite theme of his. After all, why use valuable radio time to put forward UKIP policies when you can indulge in some internal navel gazing? He claimed that UKIP candidates on their blogs had been decrying the party and advising voting for other parties. As far as I know I am the only UKIP MEP candidate writing a blog so I presume Mr Farage’s comments refer to me. I know Mr Farage claims he has de-selected me but as due process has not been followed I reject Mr Farage’s actions as illegitimate and clearly unconstitutional. Mr Towler did write a blog for a while but stopped when his paymasters in the EU asked him to. I believe Mrs Towler also had a blog but only for a very short time.

I would be grateful if anyone can point out to me where on my blog I advised voting for another party. My views on voting UKIP are available for all to see and here on YouTube and I give the click through link below. I hope Mr Farage will watch it. He might learn something useful from it.

The charge of decrying the party is also bogus. As I made plain yesterday there is a higher loyalty than blind obedience to, and support for, the UKIP’s hierarchy actions. Where these actions conflict with long established British principles of justice, fairplay and decent civilized debate we all have a civic duty to speak out against them otherwise we lose what we are fighting for and what generations of our ancestors fought and died for.

Mr Farage made reference to some members of UKIP making criminal accusations against other party members. The process of reporting suspected criminal behaviour to the police is not a criminal act. It is a civic duty! The police will investigate and act accordingly. Whistleblowers are always decried using the specious and self serving arguments of loyalty deployed by Mr Farage. If honest decent people turn a blind eye to what they know is wrong then eventually the bullies will come for them as the Germans found out in the 30s.

I have not had a chance to put my case, cross examine the evidence against me or appeal against this arbitrary decision to de-select me. I have been tried in absentia by a prejudiced court just as happens in the EU. If UKIP behaves like the EU then what are we fighting for? That was my branch’s view and it is my view.
