UKIP: Nigel Farage and Libertarianism

Posted by juniusukip on January 31, 2011

Nigel’s staff pose for Derek Bennett’s latest UKIP publicity photo. Annabelle Fuller is second from right.

UKIP claims to be a Libertarian Party. However, it appears that the Guru of UKIP, Nigel Farage, is struggling with the definition of Libertarianism. And so he has asked for help. Did he seek the advice of his party? No. He has sought the advice of his peer group – those who pay his inflated salary. Farage has sought the advice of the Eurocrats. The advice of UKIP members is of no interest to Farage, as he charts his course as a professional Europhile.

This is the e-mail he sent out to the Eurocrats, offering them money for their opinions.

The Definition of Libertarianism Prize

Sponsor: Nigel Farage, co-president of the EFD Group and leader of UKIP

Prize money: €50 cash (tax free)

The Challenge

Write a definition – in a maximum of 100 words of what you consider ‘Libertarianism’ to be.

The language must be English.

It must be in grammatically coherent sentences.

It must be mostly or entirely a positive definition. That is, it must not be a statement of what libertarianism is not, or is against.

Negatives may be used, in a subordinate capacity, to exclude or make precise .
It should not contain unexplained neologisms or acronyms.

It should not refer to extant political parties.


Entrants must be willing to appear at an appropriate Mises Circle meeting to claim the prize in person.

Entries must be emailed to michael.jose@europarl.europa.eu

The closing date for entries is midnight 13 February 2011, Belgian time.

The entry must be in the name of one individual, who will take all the credit for the definition and be the sole recipient of the prize.

There is only one prize.

The judge of the best definition shall be Nigel Farage only.

The definition must be an original composition of the author, using substantially original phraseology.

Michael Jose, and close members of his family, are barred from entry to the competition.

Canvassing will disqualify.

The winning definition will be be placed in the public domain.

UKIP: John Bufton

Posted by juniusukip on January 29, 2011

We would like to wish John Bufton a speedy recovery after suffering a recent stroke.

Certain UKIPPERS in Wales are keen to find out if he will be forced to retire as an MEP. His number two on the Welsh MEP list is particularly EAGER to see him stand down.

Mr Bufton has been less than impressive as an MEP. You may recall how he was recently caught out by the Daily Mail and Channel Four. It concerned a little scam that he had been involved in ever since becoming a UKIP MEP. John had been turning up to the EU Parliament every Friday morning to collect his £260 daily allowance.

No crime in that but you would expect him to stay for the day rather than quickly scuttling out of the building as soon as he has signed in!

Mr Bufton defence was rather lame to say the least!

“That’s our system”.

Bufton is less than happy with membership of Farage’s EFD group but sadly lacks the guts to follow Nikki and Mike’s example. We can confirm that Farage was rather ‘helpful’ when it came to that Channel Four programme. That Bufton was targeted came as no surprise to us or Nigel. You p*ss off Farage and face the consequences!

Mr Bufton also upset many Welsh UKIPPERS by being rather tight when it came to donating part of his salary to the party.

It later emerged that Bufton had donated just £900 to UKIP Wales during his first year as an MEP. This was despite a promise to donate large sums to the party.

The monthly pre-tax salary of all MEPs within the new statute from July 2009 is €7,665, which is the equivalent of an annual salary of €91,980.

And let us not forget that Mr Bufton gets an attendance allowance of €298 every time he signs into the Parliament.

A quick check of the records will reveal that from July to December 2009 he has claimed this allowance 55 times.

As we said, UKIP activists in Wales were less than happy to discover just how little Bufton has donated to the party. Especially when they remembered how they were expected to empty their branch accounts in order to finance his election campaign.

And we recommend this site: LINK. The latest article on there is rather interesting!

UKIP: Even more Farage hypocrisy

Posted by juniusukip on January 28, 2011

Farage’s shame is growing. As well as hiding behind nanny’s skirts and leading for parliamentary immunity, it has now emerged that he was not alone in facing the European Parliament’s legal affairs committee. Another transgressor was also pleading for immunity, and stood in front of his peers before Farage. Who was it? It was none other than French fascist Bruno Gollnisch, of Front Nationale.

Imagine how disgusting this spectacle was. The holocaust denier and racist Gollnisch, and the spineless Farage, co-president of the far-right EFD group, both pleading for immunity. Neither of them man enough to account for their own words and deeds.

UKIP is right about one thing – the European Parliament is home to some pretty disgusting specimens.

UKIP: More hypocrisy as Farage pleads to eurocrats for immunity!

Posted by juniusukip on January 27, 2011

This must rank as the most supreme act of hypocrisy in political history.

Nigel Farage’s UKIP has always been opposed to the concept of EU parliamentary immunity. This has been partly due to the refusal to recognise the legitimacy of the European Parliament, and partly because, in the words of the great leader, “A politician should stand up and account for what he says and does”. UKIP MEPs have never voted to defend the immunity of any MEP who is in trouble, even if it is one of their own.

But now things appear to have changed.

Yesterday, the European Parliament’s legal affairs committee met in camera, to hear a “request for defence of the parliamentary immunity of Nigel Farage.”

Farage is trying to overturn the decision of President Jerzy Buzek to fine him for his comments to Herman von Rompuy. He turned up in person to plead his case, much to the amusement of committee members and staff.

Actually, it does not take Rumpole of the Bailey to realise that Buzek did in fact act outside his remit in imposing the fine. Farage, however, is not fighting him face to face, he is hiding behind his nanny’s skirt, and pleading for the protection of a parliament he claims he does not recognise. How pathetic this sad and ineffectual little parasite has become. He is opposed to immunity for anybody else, but when it comes to his own skin, he runs for help, pleading to the eurocrats he claims to despise, and begs for his own skin.

Lack of moral fibre, it is called.

UKIP: Derek Clark fails to show

Posted by juniusukip on January 25, 2011

Some serious issues were discussed today in Brussels relating to pension rights and employment within the single market. The EU seeks further control and harmonisation in these matters, and it is important that UKIP MEPs are present to at least attempt to block any initiative that threatens our national well-being. Debate took place in the vital employment committee, which sadly means that UKIP were not able to represent British interests, as its member on that committee is Derek Clark.

Clark is not particularly bright, and not at all politically astute.

Decisions, Derek, are taken by the people who turn up. You did not. So stop complaining about the EU meddling in our affairs, when you, who was elected to fight for British interests as a UKIP MEP do not even bother to turn up for work.

Derek Clark fails UKIP by allowing the East Midlands region to fall into disrepair. He fails the electorate by doing the job he is paid a salary to do.

British interests suffered today in the employment committee. What is your excuse, Derek, for failing to turn up and do the job you are paid for? Perhaps it is simply that you do not understand what is going on?

Derek Clark should resign his seat and give it to somebody who turns up for work.

UKIP: More hypocrisy from Farage and Nuttall over the English Democrats and the BNP

Posted by juniusukip on January 24, 2011

A statement from Farage on the English Democrats:

Some weeks ago I received a message from the South East Chairman of the English Democrats, Steven Uncles. He requested a meeting with me to discuss electoral cooperation.

At the time I was dubious and delayed answering. However, with their acceptance of Richard Barnbrook, originally elected to the GLA for the BNP, I am adamant that at no point now or in the future must the UK Independence Party be linked with the English Democrats.

With this move, the party have put themselves beyond the pale. As a non racist, non sectarian party UKIP at all levels must have nothing to do with them.

We urge all English Democrats who feel as we do about this to join UKIP now.

End of quote.

What utter hypocrisy! This is the man who happily sits with fascists, racists, holocaust deniers and anti-Semites in his EFD group! Or did Farage think that no one would notice?

Any member of the English Democrats who is tempted to join UKIP should think again. Both Nikki Sinclaire and Mike Nattrass left the EFD due to the overt racism and homophobia of certain colleagues.

Here are some of the people that Farage and his fellow UKIP MEPs are MORE THAN HAPPY to sit with in the EFD:

Popular Orthodox Rally (LAOS)

Controversial Greek politician and leader of LAOS, Georgios Karatzaferis, was a member and vice-president of the Ind Dem group, forerunner of the EFD, in the European Parliament (2004-2007). He appears to retain not only party, but also personal links to his former colleagues. In May 2010, a delegation of EFD members and staff visited Athens, where they met with Karatzaferis and others. (24)

In 2000, Karatzaferis claimed that the Protocols of Zion were being put into effect and that “the Pope and the Jews are conspiring against Greece”. (25)

Also in 2000, “The New World Order means that we are a puppet at the hands of the Jews… The Global government has taken place in Europe. The common currency too! They are dancing it to their tune. Do you know what kind of money the Jews are profiteering with these ups and downs? We are being led to the fulfillment of targets set 200 years ago.” (ibid)

In 2001, the rhetoric became more menacing: “The Jews have no right to provoke, because they have filled the world with crimes”. “The Jews have no legitimacy to speak in Greece and provoke the political world. Their impudence is crass”. He also challenged the Israeli ambassador to come and debate “the Holocaust, the Auschwitz and Dachau myth”. Karatzaferis finished by asking “Mister Jew ambassador” to “be a bit careful” and warning “the Jews” that if Greek Jews continue their “insolent behaviour” (as in their response to Karatzaferis’s earlier claims that “the Jews” were responsible for 9/11) they were “not going to have a pleasant time.” (26) The US State Department, in its Annual Report on Religious Freedoms in 2005, singled out LAOS, and its leader (and then MEP) Giorgos Karatzaferis, for promoting “radical nationalism, anti-Semitism, racism, and xenophobia”.

LAOS has two representatives in the EFD group, Niki Tzaveli (vice-chair of the group), and Nikolaos Salavrakos, a former legal adviser to LAOS. In fact, for the purposes of representation in the European Parliament, the party is styled Laikos Orthodoxos Synagermos – G. Karatzaferis.

Adonis Georgiadis, a LAOS Member of the Greek Parliament, has attracted criticism for his literary activities. A writer and publisher, he has been accused of promoting a book, Jews: the whole truth, by Konstantinos Plevris, himself a former LAOS member, which describes Jews as “subhuman” (p.582). Plevris is critical of the Nazi regime for “not ridding Europe of Jewish Zionism”, and states that Jews should be “rounded-up and executed within 24 hours” (p.742). Plevris, who describes himself in his book as a “Nazi” (p.600) also claims that former UN Secretary-General Kofi Annan is a “descendant of cannibals”.

Mario Borghezio

Borghezio has multiple convictions for racially motivated violence, including an attack on a 12 year old child in 1991. In April 2000, during a regional election campaign, Lega Nord members chanted Borghezio’s controversial “Prayer of the Gypsy”, with its reference to the gassing of “nomads”. He has also been filmed more recently explaining to a group of young fascists the need to infiltrate “mainstream” political organisations.

Borghezio has been linked with the neo-Nazi terrorist group “New Order”. However, in a recent interview with Italian journalist Claudio Sabelli Fioretti, Borghezio admitted to his involvement with the Belgian Nazi Jean Thiriart, the founder of Young Europe, a group that espoused a united Europe “from Vladivostok to Dublin”, organised in accordance with National Socialist principles.

“Lo stavo in un movimento rivale di Ordine Nuovo. Si chiamava Giovane Europa. Il leader era Jean Thiriart” he stated. This translates as: “I was in a rival movement of New Order. It was called Young Europe. The leader was Jean Thiriart”.

Thiriart, a Belgian Nazi, was imprisoned after WW2 for his wartime activities, which included hunting down and killing resistance workers in occupied Europe. Thiriart trained under SS Lt Col Otto “Scarface” Skorzeny, and maintained strong links with him after his release from prison.

In fact, Skorzeny has been revealed to have had partial control over Young Europe at the time when Borghezio was a member.

Skorzeny was involved initially in Operation Werwolf, the Nazi resistance movement, and then subsequently in neo-Nazi terrorist groups across Europe. Evidence has emerged showing that Young Europe operated a number of paramilitary training camps, and that it was on the instructions of Skorzeny in the 1960s that these camps were closed down.

Associates of Thiriart were involved in an attempted Nazi coup in Belgium in 1973, and papers obtained this summer from Belgian police have helped researchers to prove ongoing links between a number of activists.

Given Borghezio’s open support for fascism, and his record of racially motivated violence – his last arrest was as recently as 2007 – it is no wonder that he has started to attract the interests of prominent anti-fascists across the EU.

Slovak National Party

The Slovak National Party – members of UKIP’s EFD Group – reacted rather badly to their massive defeat in the recent Slovakian national elections. Sadly for them, they will no-longer be able to prop up Smer – their coalition partner – in government. It is interesting to note that Smer is an offshoot of the old communist party.

Jan Slota – leader of the SNS – had this to say about their defeat:

“Homosexuals and Hungarians will begin to rule in this state, so thank you very much.”

Mr Slota has described Slovak’s Hungarian minority as a
“a tumour on the body of the Slovak nation”.

He also famously said that “in 1248 a Frankish bishop was amazed after visiting the Carpathian basin that God could have given such a beautiful country to such ugly people. He was referring to the old Hungarians, who were Mongoloid types with crooked legs and even more disgusting horses. Somehow these people have vanished. Who civilized them? Probably us, the Slovaks”.

Mr Slota has gone on record as saying that the best way to treat gypsies is with a “long whip in a small yard”. He even once threatened to “sit in our tanks and destroy Budapest”.

What a charming man!

Slota has called the fascist leader Jozef Tiso “one of the greatest sons of the Slovak nation”. On February 17, 2000, 40 of the 41 city council members in Žilina, where Slota is mayor, voted to dedicate a plaque honouring Tiso.

Tiso was a friend and ally of Adolf Hitler. Hitler even went as far to praise Tiso’s anti-Jewish policies during a meeting with the Slovak leader in April, 1942.

So will Farage disown Slota for his comments. Will he condemn the SNS for their racism and bigotry? Fat chance! Being in control of a group and a larger budget means more to Farage than silly little things like principles, decency and integrity.

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 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.

More on the 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.

And Farage has the nerve to condemn the BNP and the English Democrats!

And what about the odious Nuttall? He refused to share a platform with the BNP’s candidate in Oldham. He even refused to take part in a debate with him in a recent edition of the Sunday Politics Show. And yet Nuttall is quite happy to sit with fascists in EFD! Another first class hypocrite!

And do you remember a blurred photo, taken in the summer of 1997, showing Nigel chatting to two men? One was Tony “the bomber” Lecomber, the other was Mark Deavin, head of research for the BNP. It can be seen above.

When the photo was sent anonymously to UKIP, Farage claimed bafflement. While admitting that “I briefly met Mr Deavin at his request on June 17 1997, and had lunch with him in a restaurant,” he insisted that “I have no recollection of ever meeting or speaking to Mr Lecomber in my life… I can only surmise that Mr Lecomber was planted outside the restaurant or that the photograph has been doctored.” A month after the lunch, by an odd coincidence, Deavin wrote an article in Spearhead which discussed the possibility of closer relations between the BNP and UKIP.

Deavlin had briefly infiltrated UKIP but was expelled by Alan Sked in May 1997 after his true affiliations were discovered.

It is an interesting fact that Farage met Deavin AFTER the BNP man’s expulsion from UKIP. At the time of the photo Farage was also having serious problems with Alan Sked. The relationship between the two had deteriorated to such an extant that Sked had even briefly managed to expel Farage from UKIP!

At the time of the photo Farage was considering his political future and his options.

It seems that every time this incident is mentioned Nigel gives a different version of what exactly happened. At the last count he was on version number 5. How about giving us version number 6?

UKIP candidate in court

Posted by juniusukip on January 23, 2011

UKIP can certainly pick ’em!

UKIP candidate denies false election claim

A FORMER UK Independence Party candidate has appeared in court charged with standing for election while disqualified from doing so.

Paul Clarke, 28, pleaded not guilty to one count of making false statements regarding disqualification from being an electoral candidate at Guildford Crown Court on Wednesday (January 12).

The charge relate to his standing in the Reigate & Banstead borough council elections in May 2010, in which he came fourth out of five candidates, receiving 236 votes in Merstham ward.

Mr Clarke, of Portland Drive, Merstham, has been released on unconditional bail with a trial date set for March 30.

UKIP: So when is Marta Andreasen going to call for a full audit of UKIP’s accounts?

Posted by juniusukip on January 22, 2011

Marta Andreasen – UKIP’s very own pro-EU MEP – has been demanding that EU officials allow an independent audit of the EU’s books. LINK

“It was now the time to get a real external and independent auditor to audit the books of the EU and tell the taxpayers where the money is spent.”

“We should not give any more money to the Commission until these people accept an external auditor…engaged and paid for by the member states.”

For more on Marta: LINK

Most laudable. So can we now expect Marta to call for a FULL INDEPENDENT AUDIT of UKIP’s finances, including those of UKIP’s MEPs?

Don’t forget that in July 1999, Meridian TV’s Phil Hornby put a question to Nigel Farage, and received in response an unequivocal answer. An answer that has now come back to haunt him.

Hornby: “Is there something, Nigel Farage, a touch hypocritical about you flying out on these free flights and enjoying the restaurants and so on of the parliament here, and enjoyng the gravy train, so-called, life of an MEP? How do you square that circle?”

Farage: “You will remember that right through (the 1999 Euro campaign) that we said we are not going on the gravy train; that we are the only people who are intending, annually, to publish so that the public can inspect them, our expense accounts, our allowance accounts, and the excess that we get – the excess that we are forced to take – particularly on travelling allowances, we are going to be putting into a trust fund and that money will be used to help victims of the European Union in our country, so I do reject the allegation that we’re on the gravy train and there’s certainly no chance of the three of us going native.”

He lied. Eleven years on and still no trust fund or a full audit of the accounts.

And don’t forget that a unanimous resolution passed at the NEC meeting of 17 November 1999 stated: “The NEC re-affirms its control over MEPs expenses and allowances, in accordance with the pledge signed prior to the Euro-election. Substantial allowances are being deposited within MEPs accounts which must come under NEC control for the benefit of the Party. Messrs Stone King, Solicitors, have been approached with a view to setting up the ‘Trust Fund’ promised to the electorate. The NEC wishes to take matters forward to counteract negative statements in the Press but is reluctant to incur legal expenditure without a guarantee of compliance by the MEPs”.

Minutes of the meeting were circulated to branch chairmen and candidates on 24 November 1999 with a covering letter that included: “Enclosed is a copy of the agreement signed by all Euro election candidates prior to June 10th. This is a matter of a serious nature which must be resolved. The Party is not receiving the benefit in the way that was promised to Party members and to the public who voted for us”.

The trust fund was quietly forgotten.

And what about the £211,000 that ‘vanished’ from UKIP’s South East’s accounts?

And what about Farage’s failure to account for 85% of the money raised through the Ashford call centre?

And what about Farage’s failure to account the €6,000 a year travel budget for each UKIP MEP or the £2 million that he claimed in expenses as an MEP?

There is little point in Marta attacking EU bureaucrats for failing to be open and honest about the EU’s finances when her own party is just as lacking in transparency. Some would call that hypocrisy of the highest order.

More hypocrisy from Farage as residents slam councillor for defecting to UKIP

Posted by juniusukip on January 19, 2011

Three little hypocrites: The odious Paul Nuttall, Alf Doran and Spiv Farage

The hypocrisy of UKIP’s leadership is simply staggering!

Remember when a councillor left UKIP to join an Independent Alliance? See: LINK

UKIP was none too pleased and demanded that the councillor – Martyn Aitken – reimburse them for their election expenses. They also demanded that he stand down and seek re-election as an Independent.

Dave Pascoe, press officer for North East Ukip, said at the time:

“If he has acted out of principle, then he should stand down so we can have a by-election to give people the opportunity to see if they endorse his change of allegiances from Ukip”.

So what about those councillors who have defected to UKIP? We don’t recall UKIP’s leadership EVER demanding that they stand down and face re-election so voters can endorse their change of allegiance!

Take Alf Doron for instance. He recently left the Tories to join UKIP. Farage and Nuttall have been falling over themselves to welcome him. No mention of Alf standing down so that the people can ‘endorse his change of allegiances’.

The Junius Team has NEVER been impressed with councillors who change sides. They should ALWAYS resign and give the electorate a chance to endorse their decision to cross the floor.

And we are not the only ones who feel this way:

From the Champion:

Shocked residents in Formby have warned Councillor Alf Doran he will come to regret his decision to defect his position as a Conservative Councillor to join UKIP.

Last week the Champion reported the Harington ward councillor, and former mayor of Sefton, had announced he had left the Conservative party and signed his allegiance to UKIP, but promised the change would not effect the way he served the community.

However the move has proved to be unpopular amongst Harington ward residents.

Andrew Edwards, from Formby believes Cllr Doran has made a mistake in changing parties. He said: “The Councillor will come to regret his decision.”

And Coucillor Barry Griffiths who lives in Formby told the Champion he had been inundated with complaints from residents who think Cllr Doran should put himself up for re-election as a UKIP candidate.

However, Nick Coulson, also of Formby said: “I do feel that the electorate is asked to vote for an individual not a party.”

But he agreed with the other residents who have called for Cllr Doran to stand as a UKIP candidate.

He added: “Clearly that individual’s party affiliations are an important factor in the electorates decision at the ballot box. I always feel that if an individual wishes to change that affiliation he should volunteer to stand again.

John Lee, from the Southport Party spoke to the Champion about his concerns, he said: ”I despair upon hearing the news of Alf Doran defecting to UKIP. No councillor should have the right to move parties after being elected.“

Some residents have voiced their support for Cllr Doran’s decision. Phillip Clulee, a Hightown resident who spent most of his life living in Harington Road Formby said: ”I applaud this tremendously. Like him, I am worried about European influence on this country we should be able to stand up and leave Europe.”
