UKIP: More from UKIP East Midlands

Posted by juniusukip on November 30, 2010


So Clark cancelled the East Midlands meeting. See: LINK. How very, very convenient. But at least Clark can avoid answering awkward questions about OLAF’s ‘interest’ in him. And he can also avoid a few awkward questions about ‘vanishing funds’ and ‘the disappearance of new membership fees’.

We understand that Clark was less than impressed to see that Junius had published details of the forthcoming meeting on this blog.

How sad that Diane Kelly has resigned as Regional Treasurer. No loss there. She failed to attend committee meetings and has been described to us as “about as much use as a chocolate fireguard”.

A Farage sycophant from Nottingham is set to take her place.

UKIP: Farage’s begging letter

Posted by juniusukip on November 30, 2010

How we laughed after recently receiving a letter from Farage. It’s a standard letter which was sent out to every member of the party.

The first line had us in stitches “Thank you for placing your trust in me again as your Leader”.

Nigel should really check the results of the leadership election. We don’t recall him getting 100% of the vote!

Nigel is trying to get UKIPPERS to give him even more money! What a pity that Nigel is not prepared to donate ANY money himself. Now what did happen to the £211,000 that ‘vanished’ from UKIP’s South East accounts? And what did you do with the £2 million you claimed as expenses? And what about all the money raised by the Ashford call centre?


Now what did Mike Nattrass recently say?

“Do you know how much money Nigel has contributed to this party…next to nothing.”

See: Link

Don’t donate a single penny to Farage. You never know where it could end up. Now who do we know with a trust fund in the Isle of Man?

UKIP: Derek Clark under pressure

Posted by juniusukip on November 28, 2010


Derek Clark still denies being under investigation by OLAF. He claims – as does Ransom – that the whole thing is a fraud. Lies!

Clark IS under investigation by OLAF for alleged misuse of his allowances. They are also interested in a former regional chairman who used his own bank account to handle certain regional finances WITHOUT the knowledge of the Regional Committee.

Here are the investigation numbers:

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

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

And here is a redacted letter confirming OLAF’s interest in Mr Clark.

More information on Clark was recently passed to OLAF.

It is amusing to note that even Farage would like Clark to stand down as an MEP. He regards Clark as too old and would like to see Steve Allison replace him as UKIP’s MEP in the region. Mr Allison is more than happy to see this happen!

We at Junius note that the East Midlands will be holding a Regional Committee in Newark on Monday.

Ken Browne is still pushing for Clark to resign. Indeed, he has held several meeting in the Talbot Hotel to discuss this and ‘other matters’ relating to the East Midlands. The total collapse of the branch system in UKIP East Midlands is of particular concern to many UKIPPERS in the region.

Clark can expect some searching questions…………………

UKIP: Farage still not battling for Britain

Posted by juniusukip on November 27, 2010

More musings from Andrew Edwards:

Earlier today I mentioned that Mike Nattrass had been absent from the final vote of yesterday at the Strasbourg plenary session of Europarl due to an issue concerning concerning the EU directive on the size of battery hen cages.

One of my contacts within the EFD group has now told me that their is a very serious issue here, one that will grossly effect the viability of the UK’s egg producing sector.

Some of you will recall that the EU introduced Directive on the minimum size of the cages used by battery hen farmers. The Directive was to become effective as from January 1st, 2012.

The EU forced the UK to comply, so UK producers have spent millions (I’m aware that one producer who has invested 10 million plus) on these better conditions for chickens.

But now, the EU, having given member countries 10 years in which to comply, has now stated that those who have done, SOD ALL, should get more time to comply.

Why does this matter? Well take the Spanish egg producers. Almost to a man they have not complied with the Directive, and will now be allowed to continue to use those nasty little cages filled with pecked chickens (and salmonella) for an indefinite period. In bald economic terms this means that continental produces, such as those from Spain, will be able to undercut UK producers by up to 15p per dozen, maybe more, because they have not invested in the the capital outlay (bank overdraft) to update their infrastructure.

So yet again I find myself saying well done to Mike Nattrass (I’m given to understand that Nikki Sinclaire has been working with MN on this matter).

Given all of this, the question that needs to be asked is this: Why is it that the two West Midlands MEP’s who no longer sit amongst Spivboy’s seedy EFD group are the ones raising this issue? After all, the majority of UKIP’s MEP’s represent rural areas of the country so why have they not been jumping up and down in outrage at this situation. Two of those MEP’s, Dartmouth and Trevor Coleman, are based in Devon and are supposed to represent the SW region. And, as everybody knows, the SW is one of Britain’s premier agricultural areas. Wake up you two sleepwalkers (and others), and give your constituents a little actual support. Just for once! How about asking Mike Nattrass how to go about it, or even, what you can do to help!

[I could ask Spivboy why, yet again, he sees fit to ignore an issue of vital importance to our farming sector. But to be honest it would only be a waste of time. Wouldn’t it Spivboy???? BTW, it seems that the reason for Spivboy missing that important vote on fisheries, was because he had put an appearance on the BBC (Any Questions?) before his duties to Britain’s beleaguered fishermen!?]

Oh to see a little backbone amongst the other Ukip MEP’s. For as things stand, only Mike and Nikki seem to have thrown off their apathy and fear. You could say, Whilst the other Turkeys were voting for Christmas Mike and Nikki were helping the chickens vote for bigger cages.

UKIP: Nikki Sinclaire on Five Live

UKIP: Godfrey Bloom makes an ass of himself……again!

Posted by juniusukip on November 24, 2010

Godfrey Bloom just can’t resist making an ass of himself. Making derogatory remarks about women, applauding the bombing of a Greenpeace ship, peeing in hotel corridors, making drunken speeches in the EU Parliament, getting banned from the Mansion House, etc, etc, etc, etc.

Each time Bloom opens his mouth the Eurorealist cause is brought into further disrepute!

From The Parliament.Com

Controversial UKIP MEP Godfrey Bloom faces disciplinary action after he called German socialist leader Martin Schulz an “undemocratic fascist.”

Bloom was immediately expelled from the parliamentary chamber in Strasbourg after his angry outburst on Wednesday.

His attack came during a debate on the 2011 EU budget when Schulz demanded more power for the EU and accused UKIP of effectively trying to “destroy” the EU.

During his speech, Bloom intervened, saying one of the Nazis’ most-repeated political slogans. “Ein volk, ein Reich, ein Führer” (One People, One Nation, One Leader).

Schulz protested and when parliament’s vice president Edward McMillan-Scott demanded an apology, Bloom replied, “The views of Herr Schulz make the case. He is an undemocratic fascist.”

MEPs were asked if they wanted to expel Bloom and, after a short, delay in agreed to walk out.

MEP Barry Madlener, from the Dutch Freedom Party, intervened and said, “The way the rules have been applied has been uneven. Schulz called a colleague a fascist, but no sanctions were applied to him.”

Schulz was complaining about the British position on an agreement between German chancellor Angela Merkel and French president Nicolas Sarkozy about treaty changes in return for a lower increase in EU budget.

He said the UKIP position was destroying the EU. Pointing at and criticising the eurosceptic EFD group who were clapping at this, he said, “These people, if they had their way would destroy the EU.”

Later Bloom said, “Schulz is an unrepentant Euro nationalist. He wants one currency, one EU state, one EU people. The commission has already taken control of the economies of Ireland and Greece, no doubt others to follow.

“These Euro nationalists are a danger to democracy. These people are fanatics. People have got to wake up to this fact. My father as a spitfire pilot fought for freedom against Nazi domination of Europe. As an MEP I will fight against the destruction of democracy across Europe.”

Reaction to the furore was swift with UKIP leader Nigel Farage saying, “Whereas we accept that Bloom’s jibe may have been rash and inflammatory we fully support his sentiments about the formation of an undemocratic Europe.”

UK Socialist deputy Richard Howitt said, “Comparing a German MEP to Hitler is an absolute and utter disgrace, Bloom must be made to withdraw these remarks before he is allowed back into the parliament, it is nothing but hate mongering and shames the memory of all those who died at Hitler’s bloodstained hands.

“The far right links between the BNP and UKIP were tangible today as the BNP gave Bloom a standing ovation”.

Glenis Willmott, Labour’s leader in parliament, said, “Once again UKIP is trying to brew up a storm to make headlines back home. Godfrey Bloom’s actions are an insult to all those who have fought against fascism.”

Later, the leaders of the main political groups, including the EPP, ALDE, Greens/EFA, ECR and GUE/NGL, issued a statement saying they “firmly condemn the insulting remarks directed at Martin Schulz.”

It said, “We can never accept that MEPs insult their colleagues in a way that recalls the worst hours of our history.”

“In this time of serious economic and social crisis affecting the whole of the EU solidarity and dignity are more than ever needed from the representatives of the peoples of Europe.”

It was signed by Joseph Daul, Guy Verhofstadt, Rebecca Harms and Daniel Cohn-Bendit, Michal Kaminski, Lothar Bisky.

And this from the BBC:

UKIP MEP has been ejected from the European Parliament after directing a Nazi slogan at a German colleague.

Godfrey Bloom said “Ein Volk, ein Reich, ein Fuehrer” – one people, one empire, one leader – as Martin Schulz was making a speech.

He was ordered out of the chamber and will face disciplinary measures.

Mr Bloom told the BBC he stood by his words, describing the leader of the socialist group in the parliament, as “a national socialist”.

Mr Bloom made the heckle as Mr Schulz, a member of Germany’s Social Democratic Party and leader of the socialist bloc in the Parliament, was speaking during a debate on the economic crisis in the Irish Republic.

Clamour

European Parliament president Jerzy Buzek, chairing the debate, looked set to carry on but jeers rose up and the French centre-right leader in the Parliament Joseph Daul challenged Mr Bloom to apologise.

He said: “We are in a democracy, this is a democratic era and I would ask you to make an official apology. This is not acceptable – I’m almost surprised you didn’t add concentration camps to the equation.”

The UKIP MEP stood up and replied: “The views expressed by Herr Schulz meet the case – he is an undemocratic fascist.”

Amid a growing clamour from MEPs, Mr Buzek then asked Mr Bloom to leave the chamber.

Mr Bloom did so – only to return later to take part in a vote, when he clashed with replacement chairman Edward McMillan-Scott, a former Conservative member, who asked MEPs for a show of hands on whether Mr Bloom should be expelled and the majority agreed.

Mr Schulz, in a personal statement, dismissed Mr Bloom’s “insult” saying “You have to have a certain degree of passion to your insults to affect me.”

But he thanked MEPs from different parties for their messages of support, which he said was a demonstration of the democratic values that the “vast majority” of MEPs shared.

But UKIP leader Nigel Farage told MEPs that his eurosceptic group was angry about the “uneven” application of the Parliament’s rules.

‘Spitfire pilot’

He claimed Mr Schulz had accused UKIP members and their fellow eurosceptics of “opening the door to fascism” by opposing the Lisbon treaty and that the co-president of the Green MEPs, Danny Cohn-Bendit had called them “mentally ill”.

“Mr Schulz regularly calls people fascists and when he is called one the member in question is asked to leave. That isn’t right. That isn’t fair.”

Mr McMillan-Scott rejected his complaint and suspended the sitting for five minutes, while Mr Bloom and a small group of MEPs were escorted from the chamber, to applause from some members.

Commenting afterwards, Mr Farage said: “Whereas we accept that Mr Bloom’s jibe in the Parliament may have been rash and inflammatory, we fully support his sentiments about the formation of an undemocratic Europe.”

Speaking afterwards Mr Bloom commented: “These Euro nationalists are a danger to democracy. These people are fanatics. People have got to wake up to this fact.

“My father, as a Spitfire pilot, fought for freedom against Nazi domination of Europe. As an MEP, I will fight against the destruction of democracy across Europe.”

‘National embarrassment’

But his jibe did not go down well British MEPs from other parties.

Labour group leader Glenis Willmott said: “Once again, Ukip is trying to brew up a storm to make headlines back home. Godfrey Bloom’s actions are an insult to all those who have fought against fascism.”

Liberal Democrat group leader Fiona Hall described Mr Bloom as a “national embarrassment”.

It is not the first time that Mr Bloom – who represents Yorkshire and North Lincolnshire – has courted controversy with his comments.

He has argued that man-made global warming is a myth and praised the sinking of the Greenpeace ship Rainbow Warrior in 1985, in which one man died.

In 2004, he said no “self-respecting” small business owner would employ a woman of child-bearing age.

UKIP has 12 MEPs in the European Parliament.

UKIP’s Nigel Farage: Battling for Britain?

Posted by juniusukip on November 23, 2010

More musings from Mr Edwards…..

Yesterday, in the EU Parliament, Strasbourg, there was a debate on, fishing, encompassing anchovy stocks, Atlantic horse mackerel, flounder and turbot.

Spivboy, who is rumoured to sit on the Europarl Fisheries Committee – a position of which he boasts about on his profile at the European Parliamentary website – was, yet again, absent from a debate on fishing!

But get this, he is on record as having been in the Parliament building (well at least he signed on for his daily attendance allowance).

Thankfully, Gerard Batten spoke out about the CFP during the debate.

But not a cheap from Spivboy of course who was, um, elsewhere. Sadly my EFD source was unable to say why Spivboy was, yet again, conspicuous by his absence!

Ye gods, even, Stewart Agnew, has woken up, and he led a delegation to see the Fisheries Minister, Richard Benyon, earlier today –

UKIP: Fuller & Farage

Posted by juniusukip on November 22, 2010


We note with interest Ms Annabelle ‘Bury Me in Y-Shaped Coffin’ Fuller’s re-emergence in UKIPPER circles. She currently manages Farage’s Facebook site – as well as providing Nigel with more ‘personal services’ – and is set to represent the London end of Nigel’s new pan-European Alliance.

We can well understand Nigel’s desire to keep her close. She knows where all the bodies are buried and could provide a certain newspaper with enough juicy stories about Farage’s sexual preferences to keep them happy for a very, very long time. Indeed, we understand that one paper has already offered her a large sum to spill the beans on her ‘friend’.

UKIP: More titbits

Posted by juniusukip on November 21, 2010

Bannerman still chasing the Tories!

One of the most Europhile of all Tories is Councillor Tony Brown, from the London Borough of Ealing. Make no mistake, this man is the very last member of his party who would ever consider supporting UKIP’s position on the EU.

It was therefore something of a surprise to see him lunching on the 18th with…. none other than David Bannerman!

Having failed to ingratiate himself with the eurosceptic wing of the Tory party in Brussels, is is DB now setting his sights elsewhere?

And more on Farage’s Pan-European Party


UKIP’s drift towards the far-right first became evident in 2006, when Nigel Farage’s office in Brussels issued a statement supporting Vlaams Belang, the German NPD, the Austrian Freedom Party. Apparently they are not neo-nazis at all – just good ol’ eurosceptics!

In 2004, the presence of the Greek far-right politician Georgios Karatzaferis in the Independence & Democracy group attracted the attention of the Simon Weisenthal Centre – an interest that has been rekindled this summer.

But now Farage’s new project – a pan european political party – has really brought the filth out of the woodwork. In a letter circulated by Sharon Bonici (paid by Godfrey Bloom), she announces the involvement in the party of the ‘Sweden Democrats’. SD former Chairman Anders Klarstrom is typical of the good ol’ eurosceptics that will be sitting alongside Mssrs Bloom, Farage, and whoever else Farage orders to sign up to bring him in some more money.

Klarstrom was a pivotal figure in the delightfully named Nazi Nordic Reich Party!

Nice company you keep, Godfrey!

UKIP shamed in the Northern Echo

Posted by juniusukip on November 20, 2010

Alan Hardy

So now many, many more people know just how ‘democratic’ UKIP really is!

UKIP has been exposed in the north’s best selling newspaper as a party where the rights of individual members are treated with total contempt. UKIP has become a mini version of the EU!

Arnott should resign immediately – along with Gordon Parkin – for their disgraceful treatment of Mr Hardy. See: LINK.

Arnott has been exposed as a fool and a liar. But what is new?

Our readers may recall that Arnott – along with Peter Reeve – represented UKIP when John West took them to court over the You Tube posting of his MEP interview. Their inept performance in Ipswich County Court resulted in UKIP losing the case. See: LINK


Gordon Parkin. If he had two brain cells to rub together, they’d die of loneliness


Jonathan ‘Frightened Rabbit’ Arnott. It moves, it talks but the lights went out a very, very long time ago.

If Arnott and Parkin had a brain cell between them, they’d be dangerous!

Party tried to expel ex-BNP member

By Joe Willis

A TEACHER has won a legal battle with the UK Independence Party (UKIP) over an attempt to use his former membership of the British National Party to expel him.

Judge Peter Fox ruled that UKIP and the party’s Stockton branch chairman Gordon Parkin acted unlawfully when they tried to throw out member Alan Hardy.

The High Court in Middlesbrough heard how Mr Hardy, the branch’s former press officer, was initially expelled after falling out with Mr Parkin, who stood for UKIP in the Stockton North constituency at the last general election.

In his ruling, which declared Mr Hardy’s expulsion as null and void, Judge Fox summed up the relationship between the two men.

He said Mr Hardy, from Stockton, accused Mr Parkin of being “incompetent, dishonest and self-seeking”, while Mr Parkin accused Mr Hardy of being dishonest and so disruptive that it was impossible for the branch to function.

The row came to a head when Mr Hardy asked Mr Parkin to resign as branch chairman.

An argument between the two men resulted in UKIP Stockton branch being temporarily banned from the venue it used for meetings.

In September last year, Mr Parkin wrote to Mr Hardy saying he should no longer attend branch meetings.

In January, when Mr Hardy tried to renew his membership, Judge Fox found that UKIP general secretary Jonathan Arnott contrived to exclude him from the party on the grounds that he was a former BNP member, despite party leaders being aware of his past when he joined.

Mr Hardy, from Stockton, who is teaching English as a foreign language in Saudi Arabia, last night welcomed the ruling.

He said: “This has been about accountability. Gordon Parkin, aided by the UKIP hierarchy, now knows he cannot treat those who may disagree with him like dirt.

“Indeed, in light of the outcome of this case, I think he should do the decent thing and resign his membership.”

UKIP executive chairman Steve Crowther told The Northern Echo that the party was very unhappy with the judgement and would be reviewing its position.

He said: “UKIP is a tolerant, inclusive and non-sectarian organisation and it is important to our members that those values are maintained.”
