Crisis in UKIP: UKIP will be lucky to get 4% in the General Election

Posted by juniusukip on September 30, 2009

Ipsos Mori has conducted an opinion poll in order to find out how people intend to vote in the General Election.

Here are the results:

Conservative 36% (down 7% on last month)

Liberal ‘Democrats’ 25% (up 8% on last month)

Labour 24% (down 2% on last month)

UKIP 4%

( other parties less than 4%)

This is extremely bad news for UKIP. If we stay at 4% our candidates won’t even keep their deposits.

In the 2005 General Election UKIP got just under 3% of the vote. A 1% increase is risible.

So much for Farage’s leadership and so much for our MEPs raising UKIP’s profile in the UK!

I would suggest that in future our MEPs spend a little less time living the high life on the EU Gravy Train and a little more time campaigning in the UK.

If they had done that we may have actually got somewhere by now.

UKIP has had MEPs for over 10 years and yet we are still no closer to leaving the EU. We are still not seen as a credible alternative to the old party system. We are still seen as just another anti-EU pressure group that happens to get a share of the anti-EU protest vote every five years.

It is time to wake up and face facts. UKIP is going nowhere under the Farage clique. UKIP now exists to keep Farage and his sycophants on the EU Gravy Train. They have a vested interest in keeping the EU afloat. And turkeys don’t vote for Christmas!

Unless we kick them out UKIP will eventually sink without trace.

It’s up to you.

UKIP: Whatever happened to Young Independence?

Posted by juniusukip on September 26, 2009

I am not surprised that Yasin Akgun – former Vice-Chairman of Young Independence – walked away from UKIP and joined the Tories.

Young Independence is dead in the water. My dead parrot is currently more active than YI’s leadership.

Lisa Duffy – also known as Scruffy Duffy and head of YI- promised Farage hundreds of new members by the end of 2008. She failed to keep her promise.

The YI five-a-side football matches also failed to materialise.

The YI newsletter – supposedly a regular publication- appears with as much frequency as Halley’s Comet.

The YI website is about as informative as listening to David Bannerman’s maiden speech as an MEP. How about a few INTERESTING articles for a change?

And if you manage to spot any YI stalls at university fresher fairs do please let me know. At the moment you have a better chance of meeting Lord Lucan at your local university!

YI lacks intelligent leadership and ANY cohesive plan of action. Lisa Duffy and Michael Heaver are about as much use as a couple of chocolate teapots. They would be far better employed as musical doormats that play “See the Conquering Hero Comes” whenever Farage and the odious Nuttall wipe their feet on them.

Since the departure of Del Young UKIP’s youth wing has stagnated and is now simply waiting for someone with the courage to put it out of its misery.

Any offers? Will Andrew Gray – 15 year old candidate for YI Vice-Chairman – do the decent thing and consign YI to the dustbin?

Godfrey Bloom: UKIP’s resident idiot MEP

Posted by juniusukip on September 25, 2009

I see that Godfrey Bloom is still committed to bringing UKIP into disrepute.

At Tuesday’s Mansion House dinner Bloom rather overdid the booze – as usual – and started heckling Lord Turner over Financial Services Authority bonuses.

Lord Turner is quoted as saying:

“I don’t know who this chap is, but could you go back and start handing out your pamphlets outside this room and stop interrupting.”

And UKIP’s leadership still wonder why they are not taken seriously by the electorate or the media?

Getting drunk and heckling a speaker is not clever. It simply illustrates the heckler’s stupidity and boorishness – all classic Bloom traits.

And I would suggest that Bloom is the last person to take the moral high ground when it comes to finances.

I would be far more impressed with Bloom if he had the courage to heckle Farage over the £2 million expenses he claimed as an MEP.

Will Bloom do the decent thing and demand to know where the money went?

And how about heckling your other UKIP colleagues over their expenses?

Or even heckling yourself over employing a relative? Something you said you didn’t do!

UKIP leadership election: Daniel Baldwin

Posted by juniusukip on September 24, 2009

I note that Daniel Baldwin has thrown his hat into the ring. He is 30 years old and joined UKIP a year ago after becoming thoroughly disillusioned with Labour.

He intends to listen to the concerns of members, Farage and the NEC – thereby showing himself to be a consensus leader.

Daniel does not see severe cerebral palsy as an obstacle to his political ambitions.

I will post more information as I get it – his announcement on the UKIP members forum being rather brief.

UKIP’s new treasurer

Posted by juniusukip on September 24, 2009

I am not surprised that UKIP’s new treasurer – pictured above – looks unhappy. Would you really want to be lumbered with UKIP’s finances? Or has he already noticed a few irregularities?

Mr Wadsworth is described as a chartered certified accountant working in an international tax practice.

I have a few questions for Mr Wadsworth:

Who appointed you UKIP treasurer and when?

What is your salary?

Will you get expenses?

What exactly are your professional qualifications?

At which institute are you a member?

Will you be undertaking a FULL audit of ALL UKIP’s finances – including MEPs? If you do you will find some VERY interesting payments!

I note that UKIP’s leadership are already evading these questions.

Not that I am surprised!

Piers Merchant

Posted by juniusukip on September 22, 2009

I was saddened to be told that Piers Merchant had passed away on Monday. Readers of this blog will be aware that Piers had been diagnosed with terminal cancer some months ago.

Piers was a colourful character, a staunch patriot and a committed opponent of the EU. My thoughts are with his family at this sad time.

From his Wikipedia entry:

Piers Merchant was a politician in the United Kingdom. He was Conservative Member of Parliament (MP) for Beckenham, but resigned in October 1997.

Before he became an MP he was a journalist and marketing officer. Merchant was educated at Nottingham High School and the University of Durham where he was Senior Man of University College’s JCR. He was first elected to the House of Commons at the 1983 general election, for the Newcastle Central constituency, he lost the seat at the June 1987 general election. He stood for Beckenham at the 1992 general election and won.

MPs cannot technically resign; instead he took the offices of Steward of the Manor of Northstead, which automatically led to his disqualification.

In the 2004 European Parliament election, Merchant stood for the UK Independence Party in the North East England constituency, at the top of their party list. He was not elected.

Piers Merchant worked for some years, in various capacities, for UKIP, having been at one time political advisor to Roger Knapman the UKIP leader during their successful 2004 election and also for a short time acted as UKIP General Secretary until a suitable individual could be found full time.

In 2005, Merchant relocated to Great Torrington in North Devon. Merchant is also a member of Mensa.

News

It is with regret that I inform you that in early July 2009 Piers was diagnosed as having advanced multi site metastatic cancer, the prognosis being bleak. His wife Helen supported by their two children is with him at this time. (07-Jul-09)

It is with regret that I inform you that on 21-Sep-2009 Piers Merchant died after a short terminal illness. The cause of death was multi site metastatic cancer.

Piers Merchant leaves his wife Helen and their daughter and teenage son. Piers had faced his illness with courage, supported by his family, and leaves many friends and colleagues, Piers’ brother will find it particularly hard as their Mother had died only a matter of a few months ago after a brief terminal illness, though at a much more acceptable age.

The Euro Realist movement has lost an indefatigable campaigner and a well informed advocate, whose contribution in UKIP has been immense. He will be remembered with affection by his many colleagues in UKIP and before that from his days as a Conservative MP and before.

End of extract.

Gregg Beaman spoke for many when he said:

He was honest, politically astute, a gentleman and a character.

Piers was accused by Mark Croucher of being the author of this blog. Croucher was aware that Piers was terminally ill but still made the decision to tell lies about him. I trust that Croucher will now apologise to Mr Merchant’s family.

Perhaps Skeptyk will do the decent thing as Croucher is currently banned from posting on the British Democracy Forum under his own name.

UKIP: Gregg Beaman speaks out!

Posted by juniusukip on September 21, 2009

Readers of this blog will be aware that Gregg Beaman – pictured above – resigned from UKIP in disgust after Farage and the odious Nuttall tried to get him removed as lead UKIP MEP candidate in the North West.

It was recently brought to my attention that Farage’s sycophants are STILL trying to promote the lie that Gregg Beaman was forced to resign because he had used his position as Regional Organiser to promote himself at the expense of other candidates.

One such useful idiot – known as Skeptyk – recently posted the following on the British Democracy Forum:

As I understand it, Beaman allegedly broke the rules and resigned rather than face the consequences. So all the prattle about how he got the most votes means very little if he stood down – so as far as ELIGIBLE candidates go, Nuttall got the most votes and is now one of UKIPs MEPs.

This allegation had also been previously published by the ‘sceptical’ Mark Croucher on his Common Man blog. This blog was written by Croucher and a certain Ms A. Fuller. Farage gave it his personal seal of approval. See: Link

Here is Mr Beaman’s response to their lies.

Interestingly Nuttall’s ‘complaint’ was withdrawn, by Nuttall, before I resigned. He was advised by Piers Merchant that it would be thrown out as ‘frivolous’, so there was actually no case to answer.

The letter referred to by Nuttall was merely an invitation sent to members by me, late spring early summer, inviting them to a series of county-wide meetings to hear Phil Griffiths, NW Chairman, explain the new regional structure. Interestingly it was Griffiths who urged me to stay on but resign from UKIP if elected to sit as an independent MEP. Griffiths was also standing for the North West list but no ‘complaint’ was made against him, the subject of the letter.

From despising him to the point of even refusing to accept a drink from Nuttall in August 2008, Griffiths was proposed for the NEC by him earlier this year. But that’s life, or so it seems life in UKIP is. The new regional structure, one representative per county, had only been put in place so that Farage could rid himself of a couple of ‘troublesome’ regional committee members in other regions. It destroyed a solid democratic structure that we in the North West had been building since 2004.

Anybody looking at your blog can see why I got out. Anybody reading it should be aware that I, after almost 10 years in UKIP, have seen nothing untrue in anything you have written.

Please feel free to use this comment as you see fit.

Best wishes and keep up the good work.

Gregg

So there you have it.

Mr Beaman resigned from UKIP because he was no longer prepared to be associated with Nuttall, Farage or their corrupt associates. See: Link & LINK

More from Mr Beaman:

Of course, there are always those who prefer their own convenient version of a story to the reality. Quite simply, I had enough.

It seems there are those in UKIP who think I should have just carried on for the cash, or at least wonder how I could walk away from all that cash, and if you are one of those then you’ll never understand, or accept, why I did leave.

Instead of listening to rumour I can be contacted via:

Mr Beaman puts his principles before personal gain. This is an example that sadly many UKIP MEPs and their associates fail to follow.

I would like to thank Mr Beaman for contacting me about his resignation and for allowing me to publish his response.

I wish him the very best of luck and hope that he finds a position in politics worthy of his undoubted talents.

Crisis in UKIP: More dire election results

Posted by juniusukip on September 20, 2009

The odious Paul Nuttall – pictured above – still claims that UKIP will win seats in next year’s General Election.

Someone should tell him that UKIP’s share of the vote has collapsed since the Euro elections as clearly he is too stupid to understand the facts.

UKIP now can’t even beat the pro-EU Lib Dems!

Amersham, Bucks CC, 17th Sept
Conservative 1,840

Liberal Democrat 1,768
UKIP 140
Labour 106
Green 95

Redcar B.C (South Bank Ward) 17th Sept
Labour 442

Lib Dem 354
Independent 102
UKIP 69
Conservative 47

Does anyone – apart from Nuttall and other members of the Farage clique- still believe that UKIP will get ANY MPs next year?

UKIP’s vote has collapsed. We are now back to pre-Euro election levels. The sleaze factor has clearly worn off.

We will be lucky if our candidates manage to keep their deposits!
