UKIP’s David Bannerman: Your local MEP?

Posted by juniusukip on June 30, 2009

I note that David Bannerman – UKIP’s very own serial liar – has yet to move into the region he is supposed to represent.

In UKIP’s official email database he is still listed as:

Mr David Campbell Bannerman
dcbdcbuk@yahoo.co.uk
West London

I wonder how many of the Eastern Region electorate were aware that he did not live in their region? He certainly did not mention it in his election address.

But should we be surprised at Bannerman’s lack of openness?

He has lied about being related to a former prime minister. He does not even seem sure about his surname. Sometimes he refers to himself as David Bannerman, David Campbell-Bannerman or David Campbell Bannerman. He claims to be a script writer but has anyone ever seen ANY of his scripts? He has been accused of attempted bribery. There are questions about his sexuality. And his involvement in Northern Ireland’s so-called peace process has been greatly exaggerated. Indeed, to hear Bannerman talk you would think that he was personally responsible for it!

Bannerman is a fraud and a liar. His only desire was to join the EU Gravy Train. He used the electorate. Sadly, they voted for a man without principles or decency. However, they will soon come to regret their foolishness.

UKIP: David Bannerman and allegations of bribery

Posted by juniusukip on June 29, 2009

To celebrate UKIP’s recent Euro victory a party was recently held at James Carver’s house in Nayland, Suffolk.

Both of UKIP’s Eastern Region MEP’s – Stuart Agnew and David Bannerman – refused to fund the event. This is despite the fact that both will earn over £80,000 a year as MEPs. And this figure does not include their expenses! Many UKIPPERS were less impressed after being told by Mr Carver that they had to bring their own food!

Many other members were also slightly miffed that they had been left off the guest list. UKIP South Essex members were certainly not welcome.

Unfortunately, UKIP South Essex forever blotted its copy book after complaining about UKIP’s corrupt MEP selection process.

Here is one such example:

FAO Christopher Gill
UKIP Head Office

Dear Christopher

I wish to lodge a complaint regarding the interviewing of the prospective MEP candidates in the Eastern Counties. It has come to my attention that the true democratic process has possibly been violated. I was present at the last National Conference and was invited by Jeffrey Titford to attend a drinks session and witnessed (along with all present) Jeffrey announcing Stuart Gulleford as his successor? I was then and am now appalled he said that. I am aware that he did sit in at some of these interviews did he please sit in at Stuart’s. If this is in fact the case that was a conflict of interests and it should never have been the case.

I have also been told that Peter Reeve was one of the interviewers and I have been told that David Campbell-Bannerman said that if he was chosen then he would keep Peter as RO? This could be looked upon as Bribery!

I have been told that a man who cost our Party £18,000 due to neglect on his part as Party Treasurer has gone through. Indeed, if the Electoral Commission gets their way this amount will rise and that will be a major financial catastrophe for our Party.

I understand that John West and Alison West have failed to go through even though this couple have already proved that they are more than capable of doing a sterling job through research and organisation. In fact these two were our most popular choice among our branch and I believe also in other branches around the six-counties.

I would like to fully support the final choice of candidates but only if I think they got there by fair means.

Would you please report to me on whether I am correct that these interviews have not been conducted fairly? I would hate to think our Party is becoming corrupted.

I understand that the setting up of this Interview panel was far from democratic?

Yours truly,

Janet Davies

Treasurer/Membership
Secretary South Essex Branch

I understand that Gill never even acknowledged the letter.

It may also interest you to note that Bannerman is to open a Cambridge Office, keep open the Chelmsford Office and has promised to employ both Reeve and Gulleford. I also understand that he is to employ Reeve’s lover – one Lisa duffy.

Clearly Bannerman’s promise to employ Reeve WAS bribery. It is no wonder that Reeve – a member of the MEP selection interview panel – was so keen to get him onto the list. Failure to do so could have resulted in the loss of his job as Regional Organiser – a job which earns him over £30,000 per annum. It would have also cost Scruffy Duffy – and would someone please tell her that washing yourself at least once a day is not an offence – a well paid job with Bannerman.

It should also be noted that Stuart Agnew – another UKIP Eastern region MEP – has openly boasted that he bought his way onto the MEP list by making large donations to UKIP.

And UKIP has the nerve to claim to be the Party of Probity!

UKIP: Glenn Tingle WAS a member of the National Front

Posted by juniusukip on June 26, 2009

It has now emerged that Glenn Tingle – UKIP PPC for Norwich North – was a member of the National Front for a brief period as a teenager.

Documentary evidence of this comes, ironically, in the form of his resignation letter from the National Front. In it Mr Tingle says that he plans to enlist in the Army and that he has been informed that membership of the NF could threaten his chances of being accepted.

This handwritten letter, nearly 30 years old, still exists and is now in the possession of another political party.

The party in question may make this letter public once nominations close in an attempt to embarrass UKIP.

I would very much like to know if UKIP’s leadership were aware of this fact? Did Tingle deny his former NF membership when he applied to become a UKIP candidate. Is former membership of the NF acceptable to Farage? After all, he seems obsessed with the BNP and UKFP – both of which are proscribed parties according to UKIP’s joke constitution. Indeed, Farage has been busily accusing various UKIPPERS of being in the BNP for the last few months. And even admitting to being a former member of the BNP means that you are denied membership of UKIP. So why is the NF different? Is it because his father is alleged to have been a member? Or is it because one of his former RO’s used to be a member?

And what will UKIP left-wing extremist Mark Croucher say when he finds out?

Oh dear!

UKIP: Ind Dem

Posted by juniusukip on June 26, 2009

Interesting that the Ind Dems last “event” was in 2006. What have they been doing for the last two and half years?

UKIP: More from Nigel Farage’s photo album

Posted by juniusukip on June 25, 2009

Nigel Farage reacts badly to the news that Petrina Holdsworth, John West, Niall Warry, Del Young, David Abbott, Eric Edmond and Gregg Beaman have asked Paul Nuttall if they can form a ‘Friends of UKIP’ discussion group.

UKIP: Is Nigel Farage moonlighting?

Posted by juniusukip on June 25, 2009

Has anyone else noticed the uncanny resemblance between Nigel Farage and Tony Gordon of Coronation Street? But it does not stop there!

Mr Gordon is currently the Street’s resident love rat and villain while Nigel Farage is currently UKIP’s resident love rat and villain – has Nigel taken up acting in order to make a bit of extra cash for his old age? Or is it needed to cover all those ‘secret payments’ to Annabelle?

Makes you think!

UKIP: Was Glenn Tingle a member of the National Front?

Posted by juniusukip on June 24, 2009

UKIP’s leadership has yet to deny the allegation that Glenn Tingle – UKIP’s Norwich North PPC – was in his younger days a member of the National Front.

Why the silence? If this allegation is just malicious gossip then why has both Nuttall and Tingle declined to issue a denial?

Makes you think!

UKIP is just another Tory pressure group: Farage betrays UKIP’s membership

Posted by juniusukip on June 19, 2009

Nigel Farage has approached David Cameron with a very interesting offer.

In exchange for an agreement to hold a referendum on EU membership Farage has promised not to field ANY UKIP candidates in the next General Election.

The Tory leadership is said to be considering the offer as UKIP could cost the Tories many crucial Westminster seats.

What is reprehensible about this offer is the fact that branches were not even consulted before Farage contacted the Tories. UKIP’s membership is held in contempt by the Farage cabal. While Farage was promising to raise money for the GE he was secretly promising the Tories not to contest it!

Many UKIPPERS want UKIP to become a viable alternative to the old party system. They certainly don’t want it to become an extension of the Tory Party.

Farage will try to sell this betrayal as a sign of UKIP’s strength. That he has persuaded the Tory leader to consider a referendum on EU membership will be hailed as a great victory for the Euro-realist cause. But the membership should realise that if Cameron accepts Farage’s offer it will mean the end of UKIP as a political party. It will prove that UKIP is nothing more than a Tory pressure group. Many members – who hate the Tories – will undoubtedly resign in disgust at this shoddy betrayal but will Farage care?

The answer is no. He never cared about UKIP. It was ALWAYS a means to an end. It was ALWAYS about Farage. He has been elected to the EU Gravy Train for another five years where he will continue to con the taxpayer out of millions in expenses.

There has also been talk of a secret deal between Farage and Cameron. Don’t be surprised if Farage becomes a Tory MEP, is offered a safe Tory seat in the General Election or even a place in the House of Lords.

That is his price for betraying UKIP. Farage’s ONLY loyalty is to himself.

You were fooled. You only have yourself to blame!
