UKIP: Is naive his middle name?

Posted by juniusukip on July 30, 2009

Phil Griffiths is one of the more recent additions to UKIP’s NEC.

Mr Griffiths is not someone I would want to see sitting on UKIP’s so-called governing body. Indeed, I would suggest that a man who was said to have been so inebriated that he couldn’t find his way to chair a UKIP North West meeting is hardly fit to represent your interests or mine.

In an article recently published in Independence News he speaks of his wonderful life on the NEC. Now after reading his drivel you can only come to one of two conclusions – either he is VERY naïve or he could teach a thing or two to Farage on the art of how to fool UKIP’s more gullible members.

According to Mr Griffiths the NEC is “very effective and capable”. Clearly he needs to get out more. I hate to be the bearer of bad news but if the current members of the NEC had a brain cell between them it would die of loneliness.

The NEC exists to serve Farage. It is corrupt and dishonest. Nothing more, nothing less.

Here are Dr Edmond’s views on the article and his time on the NEC:

Independence News is always a riveting read and I turned with some personal interest to the article entitled “NEC: a wealth of skills and experience” by one Phil Griffiths, NWRC. Mr Griffiths was obviously impressed by the great minds he met on UKIP NEC and ‘had much to digest as I prepared for my meeting having heard the rumours, misinformation and downright lies that had been circulating in the media and on the Internet that had been circulating in the media and on the Internet by those with their own agendas’.

When on the NEC I did explain, with agreement from David Abbott and Del Young that I had but one agenda and that was to get the UK out of the EU in my lifetime. I am sorry therefore to read that some of those left unexpelled on the NEC appear still to have a different agenda.Mr Griffiths also remarks on how friendly and convivial was the atmosphere. He should watch out.

Appearances can be deceptive. At the Nov 3rd 2008 NEC meeting Mr Farage admitted he had set up a plot with a journalist from the Independent newspaper to entrap poor Martin Haslam into talking to said journalist without Mr Farage’s permission. Strange indeed as Mr Farage had himself arranged for the same journalist to call Mr Haslam to ‘test his loyalty’ as Mr Farage quaintly put it. Beware Mr Griffiths for you never know how your loyalty may be tested and when the call might come.

At another NEC meeting I attended Mr Bannerman admitted sending out spoof emails to his fellow NEC members as a ‘security check’. Strange indeed as the NEC had never even discussed let alone approved such checks. It was also a strange security check as it was targeted at one person, David Abbott, whom Mr Bannerman clearly thought was the security risk. How disappointed he must have been when 8 months later it emerged that the ‘leak’ was not from anyone on the NEC but an administrative bungle by UKIP’s computer mailing system. But again beware Mr Griffiths, some emails from your fellow NEC members may not be what they seem.I hope Mr Griffiths enjoys his time on, ‘a very effective and capable NEC’. Unfortunately the above evidence shows the opposite is the case. The UKIP NEC is in fact ineffective and incapable.

Finally, a word of advice to Mr Bannerman, if you are going to run a security check on a committee get it approved first and then check everyone on the committee otherwise people rightly get upset when they find out that they alone have been being singled out for Mr Bannerman’s attentions.

UKIP: Even more on Nigel’s new fascist friends

Posted by juniusukip on July 29, 2009

How ironic that Nigel Farage has told the staff of the MEP’s favourite Brussels watering hole, O’Farrell’s, that if they serve the two BNP MEPs then UKIP will withdraw their custom.

The manager of O’Farrell’s was so concerned by this threat that when the two BNP MEPs arrived and tried to order drinks they were told to leave.

I would suggest that the manager of O’Farrell’s should take a closer look at UKIP’s latest chums before listening to Nigel Farage and blacklisting the BNP. Compared to Farage’s new fascist friends the BNP look like a bunch of second-rate amateurs!

True Finns.

Timo Soini, leader of the Finnish Perussuomalaiset (True Finns) Party, and rather oddly a keen supporter of Millwall F.C., should add a little spice to Farage’s new group.

He wants to restrict entry to Finland for foreigners, and calls for legislation to force those already there to integrate. Describing itself as “populist”, the True Finns has its roots in agrarian politics, is anti-capitalist, believing that entrepreneurship hampers bureaucracy. The party attracts a great deal of support from those who would have previously voted for the SDP or the Left Alliance. Its mix of “back to the soil” agrarianism, populism, and militaristic nationalism has led many observers to categorise the party as National Socialist. Indeed, in keeping with Nazi tradition, Soini was a corporal in the army.

In April 2009, all the leaders of Finland’s political parties signed a declaration condemning racism. Only Soini refused to sign. The party also believes homosexuality to be an “aberration”. Finnish celebrity Teuvo Loman complained to police about a Facebook site, called “Lets beat Teuvo Straight”, set up by a True Finns candidate for Urjala municipal council elections. The site allegedly promoted violence against Loman.

In December 2006, True Finn councillor Jussi Halla-aho caused a controversy when he published the following comments as part of a discussion about immigrants and rape: “The number of rapes will increase in any case. Therefore, as more and more women will undoubtedly get raped, I sincerely hope that at least the right women, the green-leftist reformers and their voters, will find themselves in the clutches of the rapists, who randomly select their victims. Rather them than anyone else. With people like that nothing else works, except when their own multiculturalist views turn against them.” Halla-aho, who describes asylum seekers as “parasites”, has been charged with hate crimes.

Another interesting True Finn politician, is the former wrestler and parliamentarian Tony “the Viking” Halme. In 2004, he received a four-month suspended prison sentence and was ordered to pay fines totalling 80 income-linked “day-fines” – amounting to EUR 4,480 – for criminal offences that were uncovered in connection with a drunken firearms violation episode in the summer of 2003.

Other charges brought against Halme included behaviour likely to cause danger, smuggling, possession of imported goods knowing them to be illegal, and drug use. The latter is ironic, as he has called for drug offenders to be sent to Russian prisons, where they can be dealt with in a more cost effective manner. The day after he was elected to parliament he caused a stir by attacking President Tarja Halonen as a “Lesbian”. (Halonen had been a champion for Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Trans-Gender rights in her country). In 2006 Halme was convicted of driving under the influence of alcohol. In that same year he was involuntarily committed to a mental hospital.

The True Finns will sit well with the populist Lega Nord, the Italian party expelled from the Independence & Democracy Group by Farage following allegations of racist behaviour. That party is partly defined by its homophobia.

Lega Nord.

Giancarlo Gentilini, Lega Nord’s deputy mayor of Treviso called in 2007 for the “ethnic cleansing” of homosexuals.” I will immediately give orders to my forces so that they can carry out an ethnic cleansing of faggots,” he told a local television station. “The faggots must go to other cities where they are welcome. Here in Treviso there is no chance for faggots or the like.”
In the same year he taunted Pecoraro Scanio, Italy’s Minister of the Environment and an open bisexual, by saying: “In Gorgo, a woman was raped with a chisel in the back and in the front. I say to Pecoraro Scanio that I want the same thing happens to his mother and his sister.”

Pro-Federalist Lega Nord – the party’s constitution says that the party will end its political activity when federalism is obtained – are no strangers to racially motivated violence: indeed, MEP Mario Borghezio was fined in 1993 for beating a 12 year old Moroccan child. In 2005, whilst sitting as an MEP, he was found guilty of setting fire to the belongings of immigrants under a railway bridge in Turin, during a vigilante raid. In September 2007 he was arrested by Belgian police for his part in an anti-Islamic demonstration.

The former leader of Lega Nord, Umberto Bossi, an MEP in the last parliament, was convicted of incitement to violence in 1998. He received a one-year suspended prison sentence. He had previously received a conviction for taking a 200 million bribe. In 2003 he described Africans as “Bingo-Bongos”, and suggested that the Italian navy should open fire on boats carrying refugees.
Notorious holocaust denier Father Floriano Abrahamowicz is considered to be the “unofficial Chaplain” of Lega Nord. He told an Italian newspaper: “I know the gas chambers existed… but I don’t know if anyone was killed in them. I know that, in addition to the official version, there is another version…” He has also been a vocal supporter of Erich Priebke, the German SS officer convicted of war crimes for a 1944 massacre in Rome, extradited to Italy from Argentina and currently living under house arrest.

The Lega has its own militant faction, the so-called Green shirts.

Morten Messerschmidt: Heil Hitler, & some embarrassing songs.

The Danish People’s Party (DPP), rejected by the British Conservatives, has been condemned by the Paris based European Jewish Congress for its approach to the question of immigration. It has also been accused of Islamophobia.

Morten Messerchmidt is one of the DPP’s new MEPs. In 2002 he was sentenced to prison for racially motivated offences. In April 2007 he was reported to have been drunk in a restaurant in Copenhagen, and was seen “Heiling Hitler”. Messerchmidt subsequently admitted singing Nazi songs at the restaurant. The incident caused him to temporarily resign from his position in the government.

Messerchmidt is a former assistant to Mogens Camre MEP, himself reported to the police for possible violations of anti-racism legislation in 2007.

UKIP: Questions for Mr David Bannerman

Posted by juniusukip on July 27, 2009

1. Why are you still promoting the lie that you are related to a former prime minister? You KNOW that you are not.

2. And what about your plans to oust Nigel Farage and replace him as leader of UKIP? Still getting your supporters to brief against him in Brussels and the UK? And what has the odious Paul Nuttall – Farage’s favoured successor – got to say about this?

3. Still promoting the lie that you were a key player in Northern Ireland’s ‘peace process’? Funny how none of the real key players can even remember you.

4. Still claiming to be a successful scriptwriter? So have ANY of your scripts been published? And have ANY of them been made into films?

5. Wasn’t it rather silly of you to make it known to Peter Reeve and others that you would continue to employ him as Regional Organiser for the Eastern Region if you got elected as an MEP?

As Peter Reeve was one of those sitting on the interview panel shouldn’t you have asked him to withdraw from the selection process as he clearly had an interest to declare?

Many would say that the guarantee of a £30,000 job could have made him rather keen to get you elected!

6. So how much are you going to donate to UKIP’s General Election fund?

7. When do you intend to move to the area that you were elected to represent? According to UKIP’s official database you are still living in Acton.

8. Still looking for that special lady to share your life with?

UKIP flop in Norwich North

Posted by juniusukip on July 25, 2009

Forget all the usual spin about how well UKIP did in Norwich North. The result was way below the leadership’s expectations.

The leadership of UKIP were confident that Glenn Tingle would come second or even take the seat. Tingle even gave up his job as he expected to win!

Peter Reeve – UKIP thug and Regional Organiser for the Eastern Region – made himself look VERY stupid by telling activists that Glenn Tingle would become UKIP’s first elected MP. Following this gaffe it was no surprise to see him looking despondently into his glass of beer while Chloe Smith gave dozens of victory interviews to the media.

UKIP’s leadership brought in activists from across the country, handed out posters and leaflets and even persuaded a handful of their MEPs to make a few lightning visits to the city. Even Farage managed to tear himself away from the arms of Annabelle Fuller and turned up a couple of times!

It is interesting to note that the rest of UKIP’s MEPs could not be bothered to help Mr Tingle. Clearly the good life in Brussels means more to them than winning seats in the UK Parliament.

But despite all their efforts UKIP still only managed to get just over 11% of the vote and couldn’t even beat the pro -EU Lib Dems.

UKIP is still regarded as a one issue party. They are simply not seen as a viable alternative to the old party system. But should we be surprised?

UKIP’s ‘lend us your vote’ slogan hardly helps matters. This just sends out a message that Farage and UKIP are not serious about winning power in their own right.

UKIP exists solely to keep Farage and his sycophants on the EU Gravy Train. That is why he always pulls out all the stops for the Euro elections. The fact that a large number of his MEPs and officials could not even be bothered to help Mr Tingle proves this beyond any doubt. If UKIP was truly committed to winning power at Westminster they would have had ALL their MEPs and officials campaigning in Norwich right up to the last day of the election.

Dr David Abbott – former UKIP NEC member and activist – spoke for many when he said:

Who but a real patriot would want to trudge round wet and windy Norwich when the comfortable bars and restaurants of the continent are so tempting?

As you point out real patriots are in short supply among the UKIP leadership. Being an MEP is itself the lucrative goal for most of them. And when Britain leaves the EU, the pay checks and privileges will end.

So UKIP leadership would risk its lifestyle by winning Westminster elections.

At the next General Election UKIP will not win any seats.

Conservative – 13591 (39.5%)
Labour – 6243 (18.2%)
Liberal ‘Democrat’ – 4803 (14.0%)
UKIP – 4068 (11.8%)
Green – 3350 (9.7%)
Murray – 953 (2.8%)
BNP – 941 (2.7%)
Libertarian – 36 (0.1%)
Ind B 0 – 23 (0.1%)
Ind H – 166 (0.5%)
OMRLP – 144 (0.4%)
NOTA – 59 (0.2%)

Conservative majority – 7348 (21.4%)

UKIP: More on UKIP’s new fascist friends in the EU

Posted by juniusukip on July 24, 2009

UKIP’s new fascist alliance in Brussels continues to attract unwelcome publicity for Farage and his sycophants.

Taken from The New Statesman:

Ukip’s new friends are even more unsavoury. The party’s major partner in the Europe of Freedom and Democracy group, formed at the beginning of this month, is Italy’s Lega Nord, which, despite being part of Silvio Berlusconi’s governing coalition at home, wants autonomy for northern Italy and has a track record of xenophobic and anti-gay statements. Other members of the group – described by Searchlight’s Europe correspondent Graeme Atkinson as a “far-right-lite” coalition – include Greek and Slovak extreme nationalists. Nikki Sinclaire, Ukip’s first openly lesbian MEP, concedes to having “reservations” about her new allies. “All the parties [of Freedom and Democracy] have signed up to a statement saying they oppose all forms of discrimination. But it is difficult. I think this is going to evolve over the next couple of months.”

The Freedom and Democracy coalition is in part a shrewd move to block the more extreme far-right parties, such as the BNP, from forming a coalition – Lega Nord was initially touted as a possible partner for the BNP. However, it creates a potentially more toxic alternative. Most of the British MEPs are now in alliances with extreme conservatives, with whom they will be seeking a common position on a range of issues, from equality legislation to the Convention on Human Rights.

UKIP: Don’t waste your vote on 23rd July

Posted by juniusukip on July 22, 2009

I would advise the residents of Norwich North to reject UKIP’s Glenn Tingle when they go to cast their vote in the by-election tomorrow.

UKIP exists solely to keep Farage and his sycophants on the Brussels Gravy Train. For over 10 years UKIP has had MEPs and yet we are STILL no closer to seeing Great Britain leave the EU.

Money has been squandered and opportunities wasted. They could not even be bothered to campaign against the Lisbon Treaty!

The only way to free the UK is by winning seats at Westminster. And yet UKIP stripped the branches of their funds – including money intended for the General Election – in order to fight the Euros. This clearly proves that they are not interested in winning power in the UK.

They rigged the MEP selection process, they conducted witch-hunts against all those who dared to question Farage’s leadership skills, they joined forces with neo-fascists, they claimed millions in expenses and yet refused to say where the money went and last but not least they are under investigation by OLAF.

Voters, Farage and his fellow UKIP MEPs are now part of the EU establishment. They are not interested in you or your children. They are only interested in increasing the size of their bank accounts. They are now part of the problem.

Until Nigel Farage and his sycophants are removed don’t waste your vote on this joke party or their sock puppet PPC.

UKIP: Dr Edmond on John West, Annabelle Fuller, UKIP and the BNP.

Posted by juniusukip on July 21, 2009

Another well written article by Dr Edmond:

About a year ago John West’s UKIP media test interview was posted on YouTube with the derogatory title “How not to do Politics”. No one ever owned up to putting this supposedly confidential interview on a public web site for all to see. Ms Fuller had a copy of the interview on her laptop which she claims was left in the back of a taxi and returned to her anonymously a few days later. A trip to Morocco also figured in this tale somewhere. I was on the NEC when the matter came up and the then chairman John Whittaker closed down any possibly further investigation saying “I am not inclined to take the matter further”

Today I read in my Daily Telegraph, top of page 2, the banner headline “BNP to siphon off EU expenses”. The initial paragraph states “The BNP intend to funnel tens of thousands of taxpayers money to its chosen causes to drum up support in the run-up to the general election.” Reading on one finds this statement is more than a little misleading. It seems that the two BNP MEPs have agreed to give 10% of their annual £80000 pa salary plus their unused accommodation and travel allowances to a “community chest” to support “worthwhile local projects” like St George’s Day celebrations.

This is brilliant as next year’s St George’s day is very likely to fall in the middle of the UK General Election campaign. Even better, the EU will try to block Griffin and Brons from using their allowances in this way! Its against the rules says the EU. This is a godsend to the BNP. Corrupt MPs obey rules to feather their nest, OK. BNP MEPs breaking the rules to promote local projects, not OK. Put it alongside the unelected Glennys Kinnock and the EU establishment discriminating against BNP democratically elected MEPs and the BNP will emerge as persecuted by the EU and will therefore garner much of the anti-EU vote and what is left of the MP expenses protest vote in the 2010 General Election.

In any free society Griffin and Brons can spend their salary how they like. Some MEPs choose to spend it in the bars, restaurants, gay bars and bordellos of Brussels and Strasbourg! When I stood as a UKIP MEP candidate I stated at all the hustings that I would give all my EU salary to UKIP, something which did not endear me to the UKIP party apparatchiks. I put this on my election website: www.ericedmond.com where it still is and can be checked by anyone interested. At one husting I remember describing EU money as ‘dirty money’ that I personally would not touch. I am sure these sentiments played a big part in my expulsion from the UKIP NEC and my deselection from my democratically elected position on the South West MEP candidate list!

If Farage’s UKIP have any real intent to get us out of the EU then they better start fighting the battle on the right ground, the UK, this many sceptred isle, and not waste their time in Brussels and Strasbourg.

If UKIP don’t the BNP will clearly move into the UK vacuum left by UKIP’s obsession with EU money and its pointless, powerless talking shop, the EU assembly.

End of article.

To see the original: LINK

UKIP MEPs are far too greedy to EVEN think about donating part of their salary to good causes in this country.

Farage and his sycophants are now part of the EU establishment. Their sole aim is to stay on the EU Gravy Train and enlarge their bank balances at the expense of the British taxpayer. End of story!

UKIP: Anti-Nazi League supporters campaign against UKIP’s Norwich North PPC

Posted by juniusukip on July 20, 2009

As I predicted supporters of the Anti-Nazi League – also known as Anal – have been campaigning against UKIP in Norwich North.

At the weekend a number of ‘Anal’ supporters spotted a group of UKIPPERS and started chanting “UKIP scum off our streets”.

The UKIP activists quickly retreated to the safety of their car and left the area.

Anal supporters have vowed to target future UKIP meetings and have also threatened to disrupt UKIP’s national conference later this year.

I wonder what the odious Mark Croucher – left-wing extremist and supporter of Searchlight magazine – makes of all this?

As a self-proclaimed ‘Anti-Fascist’ can we now expect him to pass on details of future UKIP activities in order to please his communist friends in Anal and Searchlight? Or is his ‘Anti-Fascist’ crusade solely directed at the BNP on the orders of Nigel Farage who is terrified that the BNP will eventually derail the UKIP Gravy Train and deprive him of a cushy life in Brussels at the expense of the British taxpayer?

UKIP: The Anti-Nazi League turn their guns on Nigel Farage and UKIP

Posted by juniusukip on July 18, 2009

The leaders of Anti- Nazi League are not too happy with Nigel Farage and his MEPs after they joined forces with the neo-fascists in the new EU Parliament.

Anti-Nazi League leaflets have already been distributed in Brussels and there are plans for League members to demonstrate at future UKIP meetings, including UKIP’s next party conference.

Here is the text taken from one of their leaflets:

STOP THE NAZI GROUP IN THE EP

The new parliamentary group, Europe of Freedom and Democracy, headed by UKIP Leader Nigel Farage, stands for neither freedom nor democracy.

This Group includes:

Morten Messerschmidt – sentenced to 14 days conditional imprisonment for violation of Penal Code Section 266b (a racist offence) in 2002.

In 2007, this “gentleman”, was forced to resign his political post in Denmark after being seen “Heiling Hitler” and singing Nazi songs in a Copenhagen bar.

Messerschmidt’s party, the DPP, was rejected by the new British Conservative group, and stands condemned by the Paris based European Jewish Congress for its approach to the immigration. The DPP has also been accused of Islamophobia. Nonetheless, it has found a home in the group Europe of Freedom and Democracy.

The True Finns Party – which wishes to restrict entry to Finland for foreigners. Its leader, Timo Soini, was the only Finnish party leader to refuse to sign an anti-racism declaration in April 2009. He will sit as an MEP in the group Europe of Freedom and Democracy.

Lega Nord – In March 2006 this Italian party was expelled from the Independence & Democracy Group when a senior member of the UK Independence Party said that the group “faced a crisis because the Lega Nord was becoming increasingly extreme on the subject of race, and persistently put links to extremist organisations on its website.”

Now they will not only sit in UKIP’s Europe of Freedom and Democracy group, but are expected to be offered the group’s co-presidency. Nigel Farage will tell you that Lega Nord is “reformed”. Is it?

MEP Mario Borghezio, convicted of assaulting a 12 year old child in 1993, and setting fire to the possessions of a vagrant during a vigilante raid in 2005, was arrested by Belgian police for anti-Islamic offences as recently as 2007.

Former Farage colleague and Ind Dem MEP Matteo Salvini was forced to resign from the Italian Parliament just last week. He had called for racial segregation on Milan’s busses, and was filmed chanting racist slogans.

The party is particularly notorious for its homophobic position. In 2007, Giancarlo Gentilini, Lega Nord’s deputy mayor of Treviso, called for the “ethnic cleansing” of homosexuals.” I will immediately give orders to my forces so that they can carry out an ethnic cleansing of faggots,” he told a local tv station. “The faggots must go to other cities where they are welcome. Here in Treviso there is no chance for faggots or the like.”

In that same year he taunted Pecoraro Scanio, Italian Minister of the Environment and an open bisexual, saying: “In Gorgo, a woman was raped with a chisel in the back and in the front. I say to Pecoraro Scanio that I want the same thing happens to his mother and his sister.”

Leader of Lega Nord, Umberto Bossi, himself a former MEP and member of the Ind Dem group, has said that migrants heading for Italy should be “blown out of the water” by the Italian Navy.
Leader of Britain’s far-right BNP, Nick Griffin said last week, about boats bringing refugees to Britain: “Frankly, they need to sink several of those boats. Anyone coming up with measures like that we’ll support.”

Perhaps the BNP should join the EFD?

Parliamentarians – we call on you to turn your backs on these racists and homophobes. There should be no place in the EP for Nazis!

End of text.

For months Farage has been attacking the BNP and spreading lies that they have infiltrated UKIP in order to justify various expulsions and his attempts to change UKIP’s constitution. Despite this he now finds himself targeted by the BNP’s most bitter enemy.

Poetic justice!

UKIP: Who has been a naughty boy then?

Posted by juniusukip on July 16, 2009

A UKIP MEP – one of the new intake – was spotted at 3 am this morning leaving a notorious gay club in Strasbourg

He was seen by the researcher of a Tory MEP leaving the club in the company of a black man. What Mr X was doing in a gay club at that time of the morning should perhaps be left to the imagination!

There has been constant speculation in UKIPPER circles about this MEP’s sexuality ever since he first joined UKIP. He has always denied being a homosexual and has repeatedly said that he is “still looking for the right woman”.

I hate to disappoint him but I don’t think he will find her in that particular club!
