UKIP: Spivolytes

Posted by juniusukip on March 31, 2011

Nigel ‘Spivboy’ Farage is a total charlatan; who surrounds himself with a host of acolytes who wilfully ignore his duplicity. The majority of them are (or have been) of course beholden on him for their positions. Additionally, the CV’s of many of Nigel’s close associates, leave an awful lot to be desired. Certainly none of them can be described as top flight political operators.

Below are but a few examples of those Farage surrounds himself with.

Annabelly Spreadum: Farage’s long-term mistress. Was a UKIP press officer, but that was before a previous UKIP chairman demanded her dismissal for actions that cost UKIP dear in the courts. Spivboy, her lover, has now brought her back onto the UKIP payroll. Ran Farage’s leadership election campaign. See: LINK

Hermann Kelly: Appointed EFD group media officer by Farage, Hermann Kelly, is a known republican sympathiser and friend of the IRA. See: LINK

Michael McGough: Member of UKIP’s NEC, McGough claims to have been UKIP’s PPC for Harlow – he wasn’t – and now he willingly smears anyone who appears to be a threat to his Master. He does these things, safe in the knowledge that as long as he remains loyal to Farage he is untouchable!

Faces removal from CIB after gloating on a public forum that GLW’s cancer had returned. One member has already resigned from the CIB in protest at McGough’s continued presence on the committee. See: LINK

Andrew (Steve) Reed: Depends on Farage for his salary and has sold out his principals to retain his income from the EU!

Malcolm Wood: An avowed Tory who has taken the EU shilling. Highly duplicitous, he exists to perpetuate the reign of UKIP’s leaders. Whether through loyalty or because of Danegeld is a moot point!

Mark Wadsworth: As UKIP Treasurer, Wadsworth did absolutely nothing to deal with the many unexplained financial skeletons in UKIP’s finances!

Mark Croucho Marx: Left-wing trade unionist who worked closely with ‘Searchlight’ to vet applications for UKIP membership. Has always been quick to accuse critics of being fascist, though now he’s strangely silent over the very real fascist links of all bar three of UKIP’s MEP’s. Appears to have vanished from Brussels at the moment. Lost court case to GLW and has still to pay his costs of some £10,000. See: LINK

Michael Zuckerman: A lawyer who would do anything and everything to ensure that Farage remains as the UKIP controller. He supported the removal of NEC members who were concerned about financial irregularities, including the removal of Nikki Sinclaire – because she refused to sit with anti-Semites in the EFD. Some might find the latter very strange, for Mr Zukkerman is Jewish????

Note: Zuckerman didn’t see anything wrong in his acting as Returning Officer for the UKIP leadership election. This is despite his being known as a Farage sycophant! See: LINK

The odious Paul Nuttall: Owes everything to Farage. Prior to joining UKIP his only paid employment in the UK was as a lecturer at a Liverpool Poly – sorry, University!. So, he’s eminently qualified to feed at the EU trough, don’t you think?

Note: Man management is not one of Nuttall’s strong points (5 PPC’s in UKIP North West resigned after clashing with Nuttall over his dictatorial attitude). Despite this, Farage appointed him UKIP Chairman, and then Deputy Leader! See: LINK

Kevin Mahoney: One of UKIP’s new breed of ‘political advisor’ – no political experience! Mahoney is a gas engineer by trade, and a voluntary president of one of South Wales’ largest branches of the GMB union.

Aurelie Laloux: Despite being a paid employee of the EFD group, Laloux also received payment from an MEP from the GUE group (home to Sinn Fein in Europarl). Despite being ideologically opposed to UKIP, and despite widespread belief that she is the source of many leaks from within the EFD, Laloux remains in post. Could it be because she has been bedded (allegedly) by both Farage, and the odious Nuttall? See: LINK

Gawain Towler: Once a gay officer of a student union (strange therefore that he has been so silent over the abuse inflicted upon Nikki Sinclaire), openly admits to cannabis use. He was told by UKIP’s South West Committee to ‘reconsider’ his future as a UKIP MEP candidate after certain allegations were allegedly made by Mrs Towler on the family blog. He had a few days in which to resign or face de-selection. Towler appealed to Farage and the decision to remove him was overturned. Farage later appointed him to a very lucrative post in Brussels. See: LINK & LINK

Peter Reeve: UKIP’s spokesman on local government (he first became a councillor in 2009). Since being elected, Mr Reeve is reported to have resisted at least two attempts to undergo a full CRB check (possibly because of the rumours indicating that he has a conviction for assault?) A UKIP MEP has admitted that though Reeve is paid £50k by the EU, he does next to no EU related work, because of he works full time for UKIP. Reeve clearly has the right moral values to work for Farage!

Under investigation by OLAF, along with Bannerman and Agnew. See: LINK

UKIP: Derek has a dream

Posted by juniusukip on March 30, 2011

It’s a fair cop!

Poor Derek! The Den Dover business has been giving Dippy Derek a few sleepless nights.

You will recall that Mr Dover may have to pay back large sums of money falsely claimed during his time as an MEP. See: LINK

Now who does that remind you of?

Here is a big clue! Derek has been under investigation by OLAF after being accused of misusing his own MEP allowances. Naughty!

UKIP: Farage is furious

Posted by juniusukip on March 29, 2011

Poor Nigel! He is simply furious with Trevor for doing the decent thing and walking away from the fascist EFD.

Farage is now down to 28 members in the group. To lose four MEPs in the space of 15 months could be considered rather unfortunate!

Farage is now busy courting far-right parties in Austria and elsewhere in a desperate attempt to save the EFD from further collapse. You can expect the EFD to become even more extremist if the likes of the Austrian Freedom Party join Farage’s ranks.

As we said before, yet another UKIP MEP is considering following Trevor out of the group. Farage will lose funding for the group if the number of members falls below 25.

A statement from Trevor Colman will follow in due course.

UKIP: Farage suffers another hammer blow. Trevor Colman leaves the EFD!

Posted by juniusukip on March 28, 2011


So Trevor joins Nikki and Mike by leaving the EFD. Farage has yet again suffered a hammer blow as ANOTHER UKIP MEP leaves the racist and fascist EFD group.

Who will be next? We already have Marta Andreasen looking for a new political home while David Bannerman has been unsuccessfully courting the Tories with the offer to ‘dish the dirt’ on Farage and UKIP if offered a ‘safe’ Euro or Westminster seat to contest at the next election.

We can confirm that a least one more UKIP MEP is thinking of leaving the EFD. However, we have promised not to publish their name as we want to keep Nigel guessing!

More information on Trevor’s resignation as we get it!

UKIP: Not long now & Mike Nattrass cleared by OLAF of any wrongdoing

Posted by juniusukip on March 28, 2011


As we said yesterday, you can expect some very exciting news regarding Farage’s racist EFD group in the very near future! The letter has been sent. Farage won’t have a very good day we can ASSURE YOU!

It comes as no surprise that Mike McGough – NEC member – has no idea what is about to occur. He has been blindly speculating as to what will happen on the British Democracy Forum:

I GET THE IMPRESSION THAT YOU KNOW EXACTLY WHAT THIS IS ABOUT RICHARD,pray tell us.I infer that some party or MEPs are about to leave the EFD and that you know this by being close tp Nikki etc.

This what Richard Allen – UKIPPER in the West Midlands – had to say:

Oh dear Mick, what a sad existence you lead. You assume that everybody has the same low levels of professionalism and integrity as you. If something is about to happen, and if Nikki is aware of it, she has not shared this information with me and I would not expect her to share such information with me. Unlike certain senior members of UKIP Nikki does know how to behave in a professional manner.

Of course if something is about to happen I may well have heard about it from other sources. I might not have the most extensive list of contacts within the party but I am not without resources. Then again I could just be making this up.

I would have thought however that as a well connected member of the NEC you would know far more than a humble branch officer such as me. Maybe you could shed some light on whether or not something significant is about to occur?

Ouch! To see the original: LINK

Mike Nattrass

We are happy to confirm that Mike Nattrass has been FULLY cleared of any wrongdoing by OLAF. May we offer our own congratulations after hearing this good news from our various sources.

May Mike -along with Nikki – long continue to battle for British independence and freedom in the belly of the beast that is Brussels!

UKIP: EFD to be rocked by more bad news, John Bufton returns to work and more on Marta

Posted by juniusukip on March 27, 2011


Farage’s EFD Group to be hit by more bad news!

We can confirm that Farage will be less than pleased with a certain letter. It should arrive on his desk within 24 hours. More news as we get it!

John Bufton

We are pleased to note that John Bufton has recovered sufficiently from his stroke to return to work as UKIP’s MEP for Wales. However, we would caution Mr Bufton that such strokes should be regarded as a warning that the stress of your current job may be too much for you.

We were amused to note that certain Farage sycophants were claiming that we had mocked Bufton over his illness. More lies. We actually said: “We would like to wish John Bufton a speedy recovery after suffering a recent stroke”. See: LINK

It is tragic that Mr Bufton is such a bloody useless MEP. He has done very little for UKIP Wales. He promised before being elected to donate thousands to UKIP Wales if elected as an MEP. He failed to keep that promise. It later emerged that Bufton had donated just £900 to UKIP Wales during his first year as an MEP.

The UKIP Wales website was a joke. It failed to even mention the fact that Wales was facing a referendum on giving more powers to the Welsh Assembly. However, we are pleased to note that our recent criticism – along with GLW – of the site in question has led to it being revamped. We can make a difference!

You may recall how Mr Bufton 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 till now has sadly lacked the guts to follow Nikki and Mike’s example. We have confirmed before 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!

Marta Andreasen

Congratulations to Marta for gaining control of her EU 4000 budget. Farage was less than pleased to relinquish control of that extra cash but still hopes that this gesture will prevent her leaving the EFD. Fat chance, Nigel!

We can confirm that Marta has been approaching various parties in the hope that they will offer her a new political home. Her relationship with Farage and certain UKIP colleagues has become somewhat strained – remember her spat with Paul Nuttall? – and she is eager to jump ship at the earliest opportunity. See: LINK

You may recall that Anna Rosbach – Marta’s Danish chum – resigned from the EFD group earlier this year. She joined the Tory ECR group. Her intentions came to light some time ago – in November she was in discussion with Tory MEPs Martin Calannan and Charles Tannock, but her decision was delayed due to problems with the leadership of the ECR group.

Rosbach has been critical of her Danish colleague Morten Messerschmidt, a convicted racist, mainly over his financial activities – it appears he has quickly perfected the art a la Farage, of milking his budgets ruthlessly. There were also problems of incompatibility between Rosbach and some of the more extreme elements of the Danish People’s Party, and of the EFD group.

Former MEP Den Dover faces prospect of paying back parliamentary allowances

Posted by juniusukip on March 26, 2011

We trust that Mr Clark – pictured above – is watching this case. He has also been under investigation by OLAF after it was alleged that he was also misusing his EU allowances. See: LINK

And we also trust that Stuart Agnew and David Bannerman are keeping a close eye on the case. Agnew admitted on video that both he and Bannerman were illegally paying Peter Reeve – UKIP RO – out of their EU allowances. See: LINK


And let us not forget Farage who pays his wife over 30,000 a year for allegedly doing his office paperwork. And what about the £2 million he admitted claiming in expenses since becoming an MEP? He has consistently refused to say where the money went. He has also refused to provide a full audit of his MEP accounts and expenses. And don’t forget the Ashford Call Centre scam. Even Bannerman admitted that only 15% of the money raised by that centre actually went to UKIP! And what happened to the £211,000 that vanished from UKIP’s SE accounts? Was it just coincidence that Farage later paid a similar amount into a private bank account?

The truth will out!

From Paliament.com:

Former UK MEP Den Dover will go to court later this week to contest a decision that he should repay part of his parliamentary expenses.

The European Court of Justice in Luxembourg is expected to give its ruling on the case on Thursday.

Parliament says that between 1999 and 2008 it paid a total of just over €1m to a company called MP Holdings Ltd which listed as its directors Den Dover’s wife and daughter.

The money came from the allowance intended to pay the salaries and costs of a MEPs’ staff and Dover’s company was supposed to administer it independently.

Questions about the arrangements started to be asked in 2006 but it was not until 2008 that parliament’s secretary general suggested that there was a conflict of interest and asked for details of the actual expenditure.

In October, the secretary general ruled that for the period August 1999 to June 2008 only €482,000 could be justified as having been paid in salaries, national insurance and legitimate staff travel expenses.

On Tuesday, a parliament spokesman told this website, “We will wait for the decision of the court. If the court supports parliament’s position, then parliament will continue steps to recover the funds from the former MEP.

“However, parliament has no powers to prosecute anyone.”

UK Liberal Democrat MEP Chris Davies has campaigned for more transparency in MEPs’ pay and allowances and has taken a particular interest in the Dover case.

Davies said, “I hope that most people elected to parliament know the difference between right and wrong, honourable and dishonourable behaviour, without having to have it laid down by law. But the fact is that some do not – as recent ‘cash for amendments’ – revelations suggest.”

He said the scale of abuse that “seems to have become common practice” amongst some MEPs was revealed in a secret report by parliament’s internal auditor in June 2008.

Davies said, “I was one of the few MEPs who had the chance, as a member of the budgetary control committee, to read the report in a sealed room.

“The report led to changes which have very significantly curbed the abuse of the secretarial allowance payments, but disgracefully, parliament is still requesting that the Court of Justice keeps the auditor’s report secret. This is ridiculous given that it can be found on the internet.

“So Den Dover might well feel very hard done by to have been fingered and chased by parliament when so many others seem to have got away with it.

“Indeed, I think he could have got away with it himself if he hadn’t tried to be clever and make payments through an ‘independent’ company.

“My interpretation of the rules that applied at the time is that he could have legitimately paid the entire allowance to his wife in her capacity as his secretary. She could have been the best paid secretary in the world but the payments wouldn’t have been challenged.”

He went on, “On Thursday we find out whether the court agrees that the financial abuse was flagrant and the money must be repaid.

“Alternatively, the court could just agree that the parliamentary rules were so lax for years that it would not be fair to demand retrospective repayments now.”

The case before the ECJ is administrative not criminal, but if Den Dover is required to repay the money does it end there?

“In Britain, MPs have gone to jail for wrongly claiming €22,000. What length of imprisonment would be justified by false claims for €573,000?”

UKIP: Marta Andreasen & Stuart Agnew go native

Posted by juniusukip on March 24, 2011

Controversial MEP for Barcelona, Marta Andreason, has authored a rather interesting report for the European Parliament.

In this published “opinion“, she discusses the current economic crisis, and speculates on ways to avoid such catastrophes in the future. Marta’s solution? More EU laws.

Marta believes that establishment of new basis for supervision based on an EU framework, will “eliminate deficiencies that were exposed during the financial crisis”.

Increasingly, some UKIP MEPs are now not only supporting, but actually calling for, new EU legislation.

Stuart Agnew is also going off at a tangent, and is particularly keen on the highly expensive taxpayer-funded farming subsidies that make the CAP such a burden. On his blog he regularly writes in support of subsidies, but with the proviso that they go to farmers like himself

&

Agnew is not very keen on subsidies for organic farmers, however, but then he is not an organic farmer himself of course.

The Common Agricultural Policy is anathema to UKIP’s core policy of national sovereignty and withdrawal from the EU. That Agnew is allowed to behave in this hypocritical and selfish way is a disgrace.

Agnew was once famously described by Farage as being “as thick as sh*t but he has money”. See: LINK

Agnew is currently the subject of an OLAF investigation – along with Bannerman and Reeve – after he admitted on video that he was illegally paying Peter Reeve – a UKIP RO – out of his EU allowances. See: LINK

UKIP: Nikki Sinclaire and more on Mike McGough

Posted by juniusukip on March 23, 2011


Nikki Sinclaire

You will recall that both Mike Nattrass and Nikki Sinclaire left Farage’s EFD group after becoming disgusted with the racist and fascist elements within the group.

Nikki was later banned by Farage’s corrupt sycophants from standing as a UKIP candidate. However, they failed to do the same to Mike which proves that their actions against Nikki were motivated by Farage’s personal hatred of the woman.

Nikki took UKIP to a tribunal and won. UKIP appealed. Nikki then offered the hand of friendship to UKIP to see if anything could be salvaged from the whole sorry mess. See: LINK & LINK

Steve Crowther – UKIP Executive Chairman – is now involved in an attempt to reconcile the two. However, don’t hold your breath as Farage has the final say on whether she can return to the UKIP fold.

Mike McGough


McGough crawls out of the gutter to publish more idiotic ramblings on the BDF

We are happy to report that there are plans to call for the removal of McGough from the committee of the CIB. This follows his disgusting comments about GLW’s cancer which were published on the British Democracy Forum. See: LINK

It is felt that such a man can only bring the CIB into disrepute if he is allowed to remain on the committee.

We doubt that UKIP’s NEC will follow suit. Sadly, the majority of their members belong in the gutter with the Wolfman.

Here is another comment from the thread which McGough started in order to mock GLW over the return of his cancer. It is a response to McGough from a disgusted potential UKIP voter:

Jim Franklin

I am not defending GLW, I think he is an odious person who makes UK politics look even more foolish than the BNP does, BUT the man has a terminal illness, and regardless of private thoughts on the person, people should have enough self-respect and common decency to not mock the man for the illness. That is simply immoral and to be totally honest, were I inclined to vote UKIP, you would certainly have put me off and I will actively ensure anyone I know goes nowhere near the party whilst you are involved with it. No-one with your morals should be anywhere near a ballot box or especially the NEC of a political party.
