UKIP: The sickening hypocrisy of Godfrey Bloom

Posted by juniusukip on July 30, 2010




From UKIP’s official website:

UKIP MEP Godfrey Bloom has expressed disbelief at a police scheme which asks shopkeepers not to report thefts of less than £20.

Humberside Police said retailers in North East Lincolnshire should instead keep a diary of minor value thefts, rather than report the crimes immediately.


Mr Bloom claimed the idea was giving a “green light” to shoplifters, saying: “I find it unbelievable that the police who are supposed to protect the public, obviously including hard-working shopkeepers, have come up with this hare-brained scheme.”

End of quote.

It is nice to know that Bloom thinks that all shoplifters should be prosecuted. But has he forgotten that he himself was pulled in TWICE in one night by the Belgian police?

The first time for handing over money to a street prostitute (he claimed to be paying her for directions to the Colonades Hotel, where he was staying) and the second time for leaving a brothel without paying.

So what is the difference between shoplifting, and running off without paying for a service?

Would Mr Bloom please explain?

Bloom has admitted visiting brothels in Hong Kong, and said that the majority of prostitutes were not exploited: “In short, most girls do it because they want to”. Perhaps he would like to tell that to the women forced into prostitution by criminal gangs. See: LINK

But we can well understand his need to pay women for sex. After all, what woman in her right mind would want to sleep with him for free?

Here are a few more Bloom facts:

Bloom was involved in a drunken fight with a certain Mr Koenig, a journalist for the Independent.

The incident took place in O’Farrell’s bar in Brussels. During one of Bloom’s now frequent drinking sessions he suddenly took a dislike to Mr Koenig and attacked him.

He was egged on by an equally drunken Farage who kept chanting “He’s BNP, Godfrey, he’s BNP, Godfrey”.



Fortunately, Bloom was pulled off the journalist before any lasting damage could be done.

Our readers may also interested to know that in September 2004, Bloom threatened to smash a class in Richard Corbett’s face after a row erupted in a Strasbourg bar. Richard Corbett was the Labour MEP for Yorkshire.

After a visit from female students at Cambridge to Bloom in the European Parliament, he was accused of sexual harassment and making a torrent of misogynist remarks. The students, who had in fact been there to show SUPPORT for Bloom, were shocked by his behaviour. One student wrote that Bloom touched her leg, and that:

“Mr Bloom asked a colleague ‘Isn’t she the most delicious bimbette? Absolutely thick, but good tits’. Of the businesswoman who he had invited to share the platform at the next day’s press conference, Mr Bloom had only four words: ‘big tits, very feisty’.”



Bloom denied the touching but not the comments.

The three British MEPs with the worst attendance record are David Bannerman, Paul Nuttall and Godfrey Bloom, each averaging under 63 per cent. See: LINK



Bloom exploited a loophole to pay a relative to work for him.

He states on his website that he “employs no immediate members of his family on his secretarial allowance unlike most other MEPs”. However Victoria Skowronek, his 21-year-old secretarial assistant, is his niece.

Miss Skowronek also works for an investment company in which Bloom is a major shareholder. See: LINK

Bloom applauded the French bombing of a Greenpeace ship. One man died in the attack. See: LINK

Bloom secretly claimed a second EU pension. Another so-called ‘Euro-sceptic’ who is quite happy to reap the rewards of being a Euro MEP! See: LINK

Bloom was banned from the Mansion House after a drunken outburst. See: LINK



Bloom can’t even stay sober when making speeches in the EU Parliament. Here is one such example:

It is a tragedy that the people of Yorkshire have this man as their MEP. We pity them.

Nikki Sinclaire gets some more publicity

Posted by juniusukip on July 29, 2010

Nikki Sinclaire continues to Battle for Britain while Farage and Nuttall continue to do nothing but line their own pockets at our expense.

From the BBC News:

One of the West Midlands six MEP’s was in Stoke-on-Trent to collect signatures for a petition calling for a referendum on the UK’s membership of the EU.

Former UKIP member Nikki Sinclaire was elected in the 2008, but subsequently left the party.

She lost the whip after refusing to sit alongside UKIP’s allies the EDF (Europe of Freedom and Democracy)group.

Ms Sinclaire has described members of the EDF as holding “a variety of extremist views”.

Despite no longer having the support of her party the Euro MP said she was “determined to continue representing the people of the West Midlands”.

In the meantime her brightly decorated campaign van will be travelling the six counties of the region in an effort to generate publicity for her petition.

UKIP V ELCOM: The law is clearly an ass

Posted by juniusukip on July 29, 2010


“If the law supposes that,”</SP said Mr. Bumble, ” then the law is a ass, a idiot.”



Charles Dickens

Here are the facts:

The case concerned illegal donations made by Alan Bown to UKIP between Dec 2004 and Jan 2006. The donations were illegal because Bown was not on the electoral register.

ELCOM warned UKIP on 67 separate occasions that the donations were illegal. UKIP’s leadership ignored EVERY warning and continued to take Bown’s money.

Andrew Smith – UKIP treasurer at the time – even recommended misleading ELCOM over their failure to comply with the rules:

From: “Smith Epping” To: “Geoffrey Kingscott” Cc: “Nigel Farage (UKIP)” ; “Douglas Denny”

Subject: Treasurers meeting

Thank you Geoffrey for organising the meeting. We need to give the Electoral Commission every reason to believe we are serious about compliance, in order to provide the next Party Treasurer with a good story to tell when we next fail to meet the statutory requirements.



They should be invited to any big regional meeting and to Party Conference to speak at least to a break-out meeting to Treasurers.

It would have been a suitable event for prospective Party Treasurers to learn a lot about what the job entailed. Were any of them there?

I thought the practical points which emerged, in the absence of the Electoral Commission, were a lesson for the NEC on what their priorities should be. The branches are crying out for better admin and they are full of good ideas.

I hope the NEC takes good notice of your report of the meeting.

AS

And yet, despite this the Supreme Court has ruled in UKIP’s favour!

One can only question the competence of those judges involved in this crass and inept decision. A sad day for British justice and a Pyrrhic victory for UKIP.

UKIP will still have to pay the original magistrate’s court forfeiture, something that David Abbott – a former UKIP NEC member – urged Farage to do at the time:

“At the time of the original hearing the NEC had members who recommended paying the 18,000, admitting the party’s ‘error’ and getting on with campaigning. The secretary (who is a famous West End lawyer, according to Mr Farage), and Mr Farage himself were ardently against this sensible approach.”

Farage also ignored GLW’s warnings and advice at the time.

So what was it all for? Wasted time and effort brought about by Zuckerman and Farage’s original refusal to listen to sound advice that UKIP should apologise and pay up.

A statement from ELCOM:

Response to Supreme Court judgment on donations to UKIP

29 Jul 2010

The Electoral Commission – the independent party funding regulator – has said it will carefully consider the implications of the Supreme Court’s decision for how donations to political parties that have come from an impermissible source are dealt with in future.

In 2007, the Commission sought forfeiture of £367,697 in impermissible donations accepted by the United Kingdom Independence Party. These 67 separate donations were from an individual not on the electoral register and a company not registered under the Companies Act 1985. The Magistrates Court found that all the donations were from an impermissible source, but ordered forfeiture of only £18,481 of this amount. An appeal from the Commission after consideration by the High Court led to a judgment in October 2009 by the Court of Appeal that the law required all impermissible donations to be forfeited, other than in exceptional circumstances.

The Supreme Court’s decision today is in response to an appeal by UKIP against the Court of Appeal’s judgment. In a majority decision the Supreme Court has taken a different approach to the Court of Appeal and upheld the wide discretion as exercised by the Magistrates Court in relation to the amount that should be forfeited on this case.

Lisa Klein, Director of Party and Election Finance at the Electoral Commission, commented: “Throughout this process, we have made clear that what we wanted to achieve was clarity about the way the law should be applied. Today’s Supreme Court judgement sets out how the rules on forfeiture apply to impermissible donations. The law on what an impermissible donation is has not changed.

Political parties need to raise money to develop policy and communicate with voters. Parties need to be clear about the rules that apply to raising money. And voters expect the Commission, as the independent regulator, to hold to account those who do not comply with those rules.

The Supreme Court has now set out how the rules apply to donations from an impermissible source, and we will carefully consider the implications of the judgment for how impermissible donations are dealt with in future.”

Ends



Background for journalists

In February 2007 the Commission decided to seek forfeiture from the United Kingdom Independence Party of donations amounting to £367,697 from Alan Bown and Nightech Ltd. These 67 separate donations were received between December 2004 and January 2006. These were from impermissible sources as Mr. Bown was not on the electoral register at the time of making the donations and Nightech was not registered in the UK under the Companies Act 1985.

The application by the Commission for a court order for forfeiture was heard at Westminster Magistrates Court in July 2007. In August 2007 the District Judge ordered that UKIP should forfeit £14,481 of donations given to the party by Alan Bown. The Judge also ordered them to forfeit the £4,000 from Nightech ltd.

Given that the District Judge did not order forfeiture of the full amount, although they found all donation in question to be from impermissible sources, on 28 August 2007 the Electoral Commission applied to the High Court to review the Magistrates Court judgment to ensure there was clarity in how the law should be applied.

On 22 January 2009, the High Court upheld the Commission’s appeal and ordered the re-hearing of the case at Westminster Magistrate’s Court. However, the Commission considered that the High Court provided insufficient clarity for political parties as to how the rules should be applied. The Commission applied to the Court of Appeal to review the High Court judgement.

On 19 October 2009, the Court of Appeal unanimously upheld the Commission’s appeal concluding that, in all but exceptional circumstances, political parties should give up in full donations accepted from impermissible sources. UKIP appealed to the Supreme Court, and the Supreme Court hearing took place on 8 and 9 June 2010.

End of statement.

UKIP: Nikki Sinclaire Battling for Britain

Posted by juniusukip on July 29, 2010


Nikki Sinclaire is attracting serious media attention with her campaign for a referendum on Britain’s continued membership of the EU. At the same time, UKIP members are asking “why didn’t UKIP do this?”

The answer is – “because the MEPs are too busy putting their snouts in the trough, and Nigel Farage is only interested in building himself a media career!”

Nikki is working hard at doing what she was elected to do – campaigning against the EU. The rest of them appear to be doing impersonations of chocolate fireguards.

UKIP: The Adventure of Derek Clark, the limo and those slippers

Posted by juniusukip on July 28, 2010

It is not just the odious Paul ‘Benito’ Nuttall who likes wasting British taxpayers money on swanky ego tripping cars.

Some of us will never forget the time a very large black limo with tinted windows brought a supposedly ‘VIP’ guest to a ‘Cranks and Gadflies’ dinner in Strasbourg.

Everyone thought that Farage had managed to attract a film star or even royalty to his latest drinking session. Who could it be? Prince Charles? Elton John? Joan Collins? Jesus? With bated breath we watched the door slowly open!

And who stumbled out? Derek Clark!

What a let down! But we were all very relieved to see that Derek had remembered to leave his slippers at home.

Derek is now getting rather old. He falls asleep at the drop of a hat, is getting very forgetful and can’t walk like he used to. On at least one occasion he apparently turned up for a UKIP meeting in a fetching pair of …….. slippers!

Ain’t you just glad that he is representing Britain in the EU?

Nikki Sinclaire MEP : The ‘People’s Petition’

Posted by juniusukip on July 27, 2010


If there were any further proof needed of what UKIP’s MEPs could have achieved if they were free of the shackles of Faragism, then this is surely it. With their funds disappearing into Farage’s coffers, without any knowledge of what their money is spent on, UKIP’s MEPs have achieved precisely nothing. Nikki Sinclaire, however, by leaving the corrupt EFD group, has used her resources to create a campaign designed to force a debate on continued membership of the EU in the House of Commons.

Farage’s disciples should take note: this is what they were elected to do! They failed…

Nikki Sinclaire Press Release

West Midlands MEP Launches ambitious 100,000 ‘People’s Petition’ in Birmingham and Stoke

Campaigning West Midlands MEP Nikki Sinclaire has today launched a ‘people’s petition’ calling on the coalition government to hold a referendum on European Union membership

Nikki is using a campaign ‘battle bus’ to visit ‘every town and City in the Midlands over the next year to collect signatures. Said Nikki ‘I aim to collect the petition over the next year or so and have also launched an online version at http://www.haveyoursay.eu/

UKIP mugs & Junius is big in Portimão

Posted by juniusukip on July 26, 2010




UKIP Mugs

And no, we are not talking about Douglas Denny or Stuart Agnew!



Urban Dictionary are selling various UKIP mugs, shirts, magnets and even paste on tattoos. All feature the following wording:

UKIP

A minority party formerly led by oily TV presenter Robert Kilroy Silk until even he realised there must be better things to do with your life than this. Basicaly the UKIP are a one-policy party who go on about freeing Britain from the EU, though haven’t any real idea how to go about it or how to deal with the economy, the NHS, crime, schools or anything else. A typical UKIP party political broadcast can consist of either comedy stereotypes of Europeans or ranting upper-crust ex-soldiers and rather dim housewives.

The UKIP manifesto: “We talk, U kip”.

End of quote.

Prices start from $1.60. We have already ordered ‘I Love Nigel Farage’ & ‘Derek Clark rocks our boat’ paste on tattoos for several of our friends.

We hear that Urban also intend to produce limited edition Derek Clark slippers and Don Ransome drinking glasses in a range of fetching and tasteful colours.

It is just as well that Urban don’t produce lifesize Gerard Batten dolls. We hate to think what Tim would do with them if they did!

Junius: Big in Portimão


We were rather intrigued to hear that we have a big fan base in sunny Portimão. We also have some rather important followers in Brussels and Westminster.

We hope that you are enjoying our humble blog and our continuing crusade to expose the widespread corruption in Farage’s UKIP!

UKIP: Nigel Farage prepares to chop!

Posted by juniusukip on July 25, 2010



It has been brought to our attention that Farage wishes to downsize UKIP/EFD staff in the EU Parliament.

It is interesting to note that Mark Croucher’s name has already vanished from the EFD website. He was the Head of Media for the Europe of Freedom and Democracy Group. Has the chubby, balding one finally overstayed his UKIP welcome? For more on this obnoxious creep: LINK

So why is Nigel suddenly keen to axe certain staff members? Could he be cutting his costs in readiness to use spare EU funds to cover legal bills if the Supreme Court decision goes against him? See: LINK

After all, Nigel is a past master at hiding the source of his funding and he would need time to sort these matters out before the decision of the court. By now he would know roughly when he is due to receive their decision, plus his legal team would have forewarned him of the likely costs.


We live in very interesting times!

UKIP: Paul Nuttall’s snout is firmly in the trough

Posted by juniusukip on July 25, 2010




The odious Paul Benito Nuttall is certainly making good use of British taxpayers money!

From The Liverpool Daily Post:

Picture the scene. I’m driving Islington yesterday and notice in front of me a big Land Rover Discovery.

It’s all black with tinted windows. Then I notice the number plate EU06 0UT.

At the next set of lights I pull up and there is none other than UKIP MEP Paul Nuttall in the driving seat.

So while Liberal Democrat Colin Eldridge wears his parliamentary ambition on his sleeves, Mr Nuttall displays his politics on his plate.

Depressed said:

What a great use of his MEP salary. How reassuring to know he is our voice in Europe – not. A compelling argument if ever there was one against a PR voting system.

Quite!

More trouble for UKIP

Posted by juniusukip on July 23, 2010



It has been brought to our attention that UKIP has not been entirely honest when it came to declaring all their donations following the General Election.

In the interests of truth and justice we can confirm that a third party has contacted ELCOM with evidence of this deceit.

UKIP is also the subject of several complaints to ELCOM after the Sunday Times exposed Lord Pearson, Nigel Farage, Peter Reeve, David Bannerman and Stuart Agnew as being somewhat less than honest people. See: LINK.

When will UKIP ever learn? They already face massive court costs after they ignored ELCOM’s warning and continued to accept illegal donations from Alan Bown. Andrew Smith – UKIP treasurer at the time – even advised colleagues to misled ELCOM over this. See: LINK & LINK

They claim to be a party that stands for law and order and yet are quite happy to ignore and break the laws of this land when it suits them!
