UKIP’s Pan-European Debate: Mike Nattrass on Farage’s EFD Nutters

Posted by juniusukip on July 30, 2011

We would like to thank Steve Crowther for keeping the Junius Team fully informed of the current debate regarding the EFD and pan-European parties.

And thanks to Mike Nattrass for refusing to accept the lies and double standards of Nigel Farage and all those other UKIP MEPs who remain in the EFD Group!

Sorry Steve.

But your email below is a classic.

Most UKIP MEPs are currently seen as “Birds of a Feather” in a Mickey Mouse Group of Nutters (including way out Italian Nutters) called the EFD Group and we are about to vote for the next stage …. more of it (Pan European Parties) … on Nigel’s recommendation.

Nikki, Trevor and myself have left the Group (detailing the records of these people) and David Campbell-Bannerman could take no more …… yet we are voting on PEPPs. Am I missing something here? Is this the destruction of UKIP we are looking at?

I would like to laugh but the members are starting to cry.

Dear All

NIgel Farage has issued the following statement today:

“As co-president of a Group in the European Parliament that stands for Freedom and Democracy, I find Breivik’s actions and ideology of hatred totally repugnant. Anybody who would try to praise the political ideology of this mass murderer is morally and politically misguided.”

UKIP dissociates itself from the remarks of Mario Borghezio – as has the Lega Nord itself. The Lega Nord is considering the issue, and we will await the result of their deliberations before discussing implications for the EFD.

Regards, Steve.

UKIP: Well done Nigel!

Posted by juniusukip on July 29, 2011

As the dust settles on Nigel Farage’s latest failed legal vendetta, this time against Alan Hardy, the cost is being counted. The Fuhrer’s day in court will cost somebody – nobody is quite sure who – £16,000. That is on top of other costs incurred in the case, believed to total around £30,000. Now it is rumoured that Farage wants to take this to the Supreme Court.

But the real damage is that by pursuing this case and losing it, Farage may have opened the way for ex-BNP members to challenge the ban on them joining UKIP.

In fact, UKIP’s constitution even allows for dual membership, which could potentially mean that current BNP members could challenge the ban on the grounds of political discrimination.

Well done Nigel!

UKIP: Farage shamed by bad press into making press statement on Lega Nord

Posted by juniusukip on July 28, 2011


Too little, too late. Rest assured that Farage only made a statement because of the bad press that Borghezio and the EFD were getting on various blogs, the BBC and several national newspapers.

http://www.guardian.co.uk/world/2011/jul/27/ex-berlusconi-minister-defends-breivik?CMP=twt_iph

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2019283/Norway-Shooting-Silvio-Berlusconi-ally-Borghezio-praises-Anders-Behring-Breivik.html

http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/worldnews/europe/norway/8664159/Norway-killer-Anders-Behring-Breivik-emailed-manifesto-to-250-British-contacts.html

Let us not forget that Farage remained silent when Francesco Speroni – EFD member – said that weapons should be used on immigrants.

He said “all means” should be used to suppress the influx of people who are “violating Italy and her rules.”

“That means weapons as a last resort,” he added. See: LINK

And he remained silent when it was revealed that Borghezio and Messerschmidt had been arrested for racial offences.

And he remained silent when it was revealed that a Lega Nord MEP had called for racial segregation on Italian public transport.

Etc, etc, etc.

No one is fooled by Nigel’s sudden sense of morality. A senior UKIPPER has already admitted to a member of the Junius Team that the statement reprinted below was Farage’s desperate attempt at ‘damage limitation’.

UKIP statement on Northern League

Thursday, 28th July 2011

Nigel Farage, Leader of UKIP, today contacted Francesco Speroni, co-president of The Europe of Freedom and Democracy (EFD), a group in the European Parliament, to demand an immediate retraction and apology following his remarks and those of his fellow Northern League MEP Mario Borghezio.

The comments, both made in recent radio interviews, were in response to the tragedy in Norway where seventy-six people were killed by Anders Behring Breivik. If no retraction is forthcoming then UKIP will suspend its membership of the EFD group in which it sits alongside the Italian political party.

Borghezio, described the ideas of Breivik as “good” and “excellent”. Speroni has now said he believed Borghezio’s comments to be “in support of Western civilisation”. UKIP totally disassociates itself from the remarks of Borghezio and Speroni. The Northern League is due to meet tomorrow (Friday) to discuss the issue. In the meantime Northern League minister, Roberto Calderoli has condemned Borghezio’s remarks.

Nigel Farage said: “I find Breivik’s actions and idealogy of hatred totally repugnant. Anybody who would praise the political ideology of this mass murderer is morally and politically misguided. Consequently I have written to the leadership of the Northern League party to demand an immediate full retraction and apology. If my request is not met, then we will suspend our membership of the EFD group.”

UKIP: Farage’s EFD colleague praises Norwegian mass murderer

Posted by juniusukip on July 27, 2011

We note that an unnamed UKIP spokesman has stated that “Mr Borghezio’s reported comments are shocking and, if accurately reported, reprehensible“. However, they only made this statement after being approached by the BBC.

And they have been strangely silent when it comes to other statements made by MEPs/members of the various parties that make up UKIP’s EFD Group:

The Slovak National Party reacted rather badly to their massive defeat in the Slovakian national elections.


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

Mr Slota – leader of the SNP – 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”.

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

And what of the True Finns?

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.

And Lega Nord?

Giancarlo Gentilini, Lega Nord’s Mayor of Treviso, is notorious for having said said of immigrants, that “we should dress them up like hares and bang-bang-bang”.

However, Gentilini also declared, at a rally in Padania in 2008, that “We must cleanse our streets of the black-skinned, the yellow-skinned, the Roma … I would have all the immigrants put on file, one by one. Unfortunately, this is not allowed by the law. They are the carriers of all sorts of diseases, tuberculosis, Aids, scabies, hepatitis.” As a result he was convicted of “inciting racial hatred”, and banned from speaking at political meetings.

Lega Nord was expelled from Farage’s Ind Dem group back in 2006. Now they are back, in the EFD group, and Farage says that they have “behaved themselves since the expulsion”.

Have they, Nigel? Since the expulsion, Gentili has been convicted of incitement to racial hatred, MEP Mario Borghezio has been arrested for “racial offences” by Belgian police (2007), and last year, Matteo Salvini, (one of the MEPs expelled by Farage), has called for “racial segregation” on Italian public transport, and has appeared on you tube chanting racist slogans with football supporters.

And Morton Messerschmidt?

In 2002, Messerschmidt received a jail sentence for incitement to racial hatred. But it gets worse – much worse.

In 2007, Messerschmidt was forced to resign from the Danish government after he was seen “Heiling Hitler” and singing Nazi marching songs in a bar in Copenhagen. He has subsequently denied some of the allegations, although at the time he confessed.

We note that UKIP’s leaders – and those UKIP MEPs who still remain in the EFD – have failed to condemn ANY of the racist and homophobic statements quoted above. Need we say more? See: LINK & LINK

This is what Nikki Sinclaire had to say about Borghezio:

From her blog:

Vile Lega Nord MEP and UKIP colleague Borghezio agrees with Norwegian monsters manifesto

How on earth can UKIP continue to sit in the same group as this man?

Press Statement by Nikki Sinclaire MEP

On the atrocities in Norway, and the response of the Lega Nord MEP Mario Borghezio



My heart goes out to the victims of the atrocities that took place in Norway last week, and to their families. There can be no excuses, no justifications, this was nothing but an act of pure and unmitigated evil.

In protest against violent right-wing extremism, I resigned from UKIP’s political group in the European Parliament, the Europe of Freedom & Democracy (EFD). I particularly cited the racism and homophobia prevelant in the Italian Lega Nord. As a result of my stand, I had the UKIP party whip withdrawn by the party leadership.

In the wake of this vile mass murder, one of those Lega Nord MEPs I particularly objected to, Mario Borghezio, a man with at least two convictions for racially motivated violence, including an assualt on a child, has gone on record as supporting the murderer Breivik. He stated that “One hundred per cent of Breivik’s ideas are good, in some cases extremely good. The positions of Breivik reflect the views of those movements across Europe which are winning elections.”

I now call upon UKIP MEPs to distance themselves from this objectionable political group, of which Lega Nord is not the only party to contain members with racial convictions. As 76 families mourn their loved ones, now is the moment for UKIP MEPs to take stock, and act on their conscience, rather than remain in a political group with such extremists, purely on the grounds that they can earn more money by doing so.

From the BBC:

Italy MEP backs ideas of Norway killer Breivik

An Italian MEP has described the ideas of Norway’s self-confessed mass killer, Anders Behring Breivik, as “good” and in some cases “excellent”.

Mario Borghezio, who belongs to the Northern League party, condemned Mr Breivik’s violence, but backed his stance against Islam.

The Northern League is a partner in PM Silvio Berlusconi’s government.

Mr Borghezio’s comments in a radio interview sparked outrage, with opposition calls for the MEP to resign.

Mr Breivik’s justification for killing 76 people was that he wanted to inflict maximum damage on Norway’s governing Labour Party because of its failure to clamp down on immigration.

“Some of the ideas he expressed are good, barring the violence. Some of them are great,” Mario Borghezio told Il Sole-24 Ore radio station.

He agreed with Mr Breivik’s “opposition to Islam and his explicit accusation that Europe has surrendered before putting up a fight against its Islamicisation”.

The Northern League is an avowedly anti-immigration, regionalist Italian political party, key to the governing coalition, and known for its anti-Islamic rhetoric.

The controversy sparked swift reaction from fellow MEPs.

“My heart goes out to the victims of the atrocities that took place in Norway last week, and to their families. There can be no excuses, no justifications. This was nothing but an act of pure and unmitigated evil,” said Nikki Sinclaire.

Ms Sinclaire resigned last year from the European Parliament umbrella group, Europe of Freedom & Democracy (EFD), which included her UK Independence Party, as well as Italy’s Northern League. She cited the racism of Northern League members in making her decision.

“Mr Borghezio’s reported comments are shocking and, if accurately reported, reprehensible. They are in no way reflective of UKIP’s position or that of the EFD Group,” said a UKIP spokesman.

‘Create monsters’

But Mr Borghezio is not the only right-wing politician to express sympathy with the actions of Anders Behring Breivik.

A member of France’s far-right National Front party has been suspended after writing a defence of the Norwegian attacker on his blog.

Jacques Coutela described Mr Breivik as “the main defender of the West”, comparing him to Charles Martel, a seventh century leader who halted Islamic expansion in western Europe.

“The reason for the Norway terror attacks: fighting the Muslim invasion, that’s what people don’t want you to know”, read the post.

Mr Coutela stood as a National Front candidate in local elections in March.

“He was suspended today pending a party disciplinary committee,” said Steeve Briois, the Front’s general secretary.

Meanwhile, the leader of the English Defence League (EDL), Stephen Lennon, said the mass killing in Norway was a wake-up call.

“What happened in Oslo shows how desperate some people are becoming in Europe,” said Mr Lennon, who was convicted earlier this week of leading a brawl involving 100 football fans.

“It’s a ticking time bomb. If they don’t give that frustration and anger a platform as such and a voice – and a way of getting emotion out in a democratic way – it will create monsters like this lunatic.”

The EDL is also known for its strong stance against immigration.

Mr Breivik has posted admiring comments online about the EDL.

The League leadership is checking his claims to have contacts among its members.

UKIP: Steve Allison makes an even bigger fool of himself

Posted by juniusukip on July 27, 2011

We note that Steve Allison – wannabe MEP – has been circulating an email. Anyone reading this email can only come to one conclusion – Allison is a fool.

From: Stephen Allison

Date: 22 July 2011 22:35:36 GMT

Subject: CONFIDENTIAL

PLEASE TREAT THIS AS CONFIDENTIAL.

You may have heard that UKIP lost its appeal in court today against the re-admittance to membership of a Mr.Alan Hardy. This is being spun by certain anti-UKIP Blogs and Websites as a defeat for UKIP and touted an example of how Nigel has been wasting UKIP’s money on personal legal vendettas.

Junius says: It was clearly a defeat for UKIP. Their appeal was rejected by THREE APPEAL COURT JUDGES in The Strand. Didn’t Allison bother to read the judgement?

And it WAS a waste of UKIP money as the leadership had clearly not followed party rules when they decided to expel Mr Hardy.

Allison says: I do not think anyone who knows me would accuse me of being a Nigel Sycophant or someone who believes Nigel can do no wrong, However, in this case I am definitely 100% behind Nigel. Alan Hardy is a former member of the BNP and his case is AT THE MOMENT limited to him. However, I believe that he is being used as a Trojan Horse to force UKIP to accept BNP Members into out ranks and worse. I copy below an e-mail that Hardy sent after the Appeal Court Ruling.

Junius says: So you are 100% behind Nigel? No surprise there. Your ambition is to be an MEP and you know that the only way you can do that is by kissing Nigel’s arse at every opportunity. Can we remind Allison that Farage and the NEC were fully aware that Mr Hardy was a former member of the BNP.

This is what the original judge said:

Therefore I conclude that the NEC did consider Mr Hardy’s individual case in March and decided that his former membership of the BNP was no obstacle to his membership of UKIP continuing. That is hardly surprising in view of the warmth with which Mr Hardy had been welcomed into the UKIP fold from the BNP not least from Mr Farage.

See: LINK

Junius says: So when can we expect expect Allison to call on the rest of UKIP’s MEPs to leave the EFD? After all, they are happy to sit with people that make the BNP look like liberals! Failure to condemn Farage for sitting with people who advocate segregation on public transport can only result in Allison being labelled a hypocrite and an opportunist.

For more on Farage’s fascist allies in the EFD: LINK & LINK

Allison says: UKIP has to fight this man to the bitter end! We have all worked too hard to destroy the myth that UKIP and the BNP are in any way alike, we must keep out the BNP, this is a fight we cannot afford to lose.

Junius says: So will Allison be offering a very generous contribution to UKIP’s legal fund? We doubt it. Some people are very generous when it comes to spending other people’s money. Just ask Nigel.

And can we remind Allison that Farage was more than happy to meet the BNP when he thought that his career in UKIP was over. See: LINK

Dear Sirs,

Courtesy of the Court of Appeal: those within UKIP who feel so inclined CANNOT do as they please, they are bound by the law as are the rest of society. And I may add that UKIP faces further legal action unless the decision not to allow former members of the BNP to stand as candidates for the party, as well as for internal posts, is reversed. Indeed I would like to see written evidence that it even exists.

Take note all of you, especially Mr. Farage.

ALAN HARDY

successful litigant.

We note that Annabelle Fuller attended the appeal. Well, at least it gave her a good excuse to spend time with Nigel. We just hope that everyone kept an eye on their BlackBerry. She does have a tendency to ‘borrow’ them! See: LINK


We also note that Michael ‘who ate all the pies’ Greaves was also at the Appeal Court. We sincerely hope that Nigel managed to steer him away from the restaurant! The words ‘shark’ and ‘feeding frenzy’ do rather spring to mind when we think of Mr Greaves and food. For more on this incompetent see: LINK

UKIP: Nikki Sinclaire on EU expansion

Posted by juniusukip on July 26, 2011

From the EU Reporter:

EU Enlargement: The Huge Pre-Accession Costs.

Nikki Sinclaire MEP argues that the pre-accession costs of Turkey, Croatia and Serbia means that EU is simply giving billions away in the hope of buying friendship and stability.

“There are certain factions amongst the EU political elite that are unlikely ever to accept Turkish accession. Whilst there certainly are social and economic matters that are problematic, the same could be said of any of the recent new member states.

In his 2004 report urging early accession of Bulgaria, which failed to meet certain criteria, Conservative MEP Geoffrey Van Orden seemed to suggest that the interests of the EU were best served by a prompt accession, and that the problems might therefore be overlooked.

So why is Turkey different? Of course, there is the matter of the Turkish occupation of Northern Cyprus, but Turkey would not be the only state to join the EU with unresolved border issues – Croatia has long standing disputes with Slovenia, Serbia, Bosnia & Herzegovina, and Montenegro and yet that country is set for accession in July 2013. So are there other issues?

Personally, I don’t want to see any further expansion of the EU, but I don’t like to see racism being hidden behind so-called economic or social arguments. Turkey is a rising power, and its exclusion from the EU has led it to emerge as one of three main poles of power in Europe, the other two being Russia and the EU.

It is actually a sign of the EU’s impotence in foreign affairs that a bloc of 27 nations is unable to dominate its own political space.

We now live not only in a multi-polar world, but in a multi-polar Europe. As a result of Turkey’s increasing importance in its own right, support amongst the Turkish population for EU membership has almost halved to just 38%. €4.33 billion, a huge amount of money, has been spent by the EU on Turkey’s pre-accession preparations.

To exactly what end is this being spent? Will Turkey ever join the EU?

In 2007, Nicolas Sarkozy stated that “Enlarging Europe with no limit risks destroying European political union, and that I do not accept…I want to say that Europe must give itself borders, that not all countries have a vocation to become members of Europe, beginning with Turkey which has no place inside the European Union.”

Is Sarkozy really opposed to EU expansion as his words seem to suggest, or is he just opposed to Turkey?

Given its geopolitically strategic position, Turkey would be well advised to lean east, which it will probably do as soon as the EU stops giving it handouts. This would weaken the EU’s already vulnerable position regarding security of energy supply, and would greatly increase Russian domination in this area.

Croatia emerged from its post-conflict mode in 2000, the vital tourist sector is booming, and its institutions and civil society are being rebuilt, which explains the relatively modest sum of €748 million being spent on pre-accession arrangements over 4 years.

However, Croatia is recovering on its own, and looks to be the success story of its region. Ironically, whilst Croatia recovers, economic problems within the Eurozone have caused public support for EU accession to wane.

Accession negotiations with Serbia have yet to be opened, but the country is in receipt of considerable EU largesse; €1.9 billion, to be precise. Serbia has a larger population than Croatia – 7.3 million – a figure which includes the highest refugee population in Europe.

The Serbian economy is also performing well; indeed growth has at times been fractionally higher than that of Croatia.

There remain problems over Serbia’s relationship with Kosovo, but President Barosso has declared that the failure of Belgrade to recognise Kosovo is not a barrier to EU accession. Russia has been heavily investing in Serbia’s energy infrastructure – demand for energy is growing in Serbia.

Cynics might say that Russia is spending its money wisely, and will receive good dividends, both politically and economically, on its investment. The EU, on the other hand, is simply giving billions away in the hope of buying friendship and stability.”

UKIP: East Midlands meeting, Steve Allison on Alan Hardy and No to PEPs

Posted by juniusukip on July 25, 2011


Tonight’s East Midlands Meeting

Another East Midlands meeting is being held in Newark. We are informed that Charles Swaby – new member, lawyer and former NATO legal officer – wants to push forward with membership recruitment and new party policies.

However, Derek Clark is less than keen to allow this new blood to galvanise the membership. He is content to keep things just as they are – falling membership, branches closing and apathy across the region. The only thing that Clark is worried about is his MEP salary and that fat EU pension.

Steve Allison makes a fool of himself


We note that Steve Allison has being trying to defend Farage’s decision to fight Mr Hardy in the courts. See: LINK

Alan Hardy

Mr Allison claims that Farage was right to fight the case as Mr Hardy was a former BNP member. We strongly advise Mr Allison to read the original decision of the court. It may prevent him making an ass of himself in the future.

In fact, Farage and the NEC had no problem with the fact that Mr Hardy was ex-BNP.

This is what the judge said:

Therefore I conclude that the NEC did consider Mr Hardy’s individual case in March and decided that his former membership of the BNP was no obstacle to his membership of UKIP continuing. That is hardly surprising in view of the warmth with which Mr Hardy had been welcomed into the UKIP fold from the BNP not least from Mr Farage.

The Judge ruled that Mr Hardy had been unlawfully expelled from the party as UKIP’s leadership had failed to follow its own procedures.

No to PEPs

Interesting article from a fellow blogger.

A PEP “Yes” vote would be suicide for UKIP

Around about now, UKIP members are receiving ballot papers through the post with the latest edition of Independence magazine (at least, this is how I got mine).

For non-membership (and I suppose there are plenty of those), let me explain that a referendum is underway to decide whether or not to allow UKIP MEPs to join a pan-European (political) party in the European Parliament. Such an entity qualifies for EU funding (£19 million set aside in 2012 to be divided between all PEPs). As far as I am concerned, what it is pretty much about is an EU ruse to financially incentivise disparate national parties to become gradually further subsumed into the European institutions – to blot out opposition by introducing a corrupting cash-milk teat. It is about looking, through bribery, to establish recognition of the European Parliament as a legitimate democratic body from parties such as UKIP who are in principle opposed to it. Moreover, control of populations is all about perception, and the European Parliament is looking to be seen in the same way as a national parliament is with a few parties representing all the regions.

However, as Gerard Batten argues, there is not a withdrawalist party which UKIP could join that will represent its membership. Moreover, the bribe for which UKIP MEPs could compromise their principles and betray the people who voted for them cannot be used to campaign in a UK General Election which is the only battleground that matters in terms of withdrawing from the EU (Parliament can bring us out when a majority of MPs demand it).

The “Yes” argument boils down to wanting money – or at least, that is very much how it will be perceived to be the case (I guarantee), and in a climate where the establishment is viewed by the electorate as corrupt, this will give UKIP’s opponents plenty of ammunition and an opportunity to portray the party as only wanting to move into the establishment to share the spoils, instead of wanting to replace it – as UKIP’s mission should be widely understood to be.

I already see comments from members of the public in the online newspapers who cannot understand why UKIP MEP’s sit in the European Parliament, and help legitimise the institution. When UKIP MEPs stand up and speak, it even gives the place the air of a serious debating chamber which is intent on holding the executive to account – something that the European Parliament is a long way away from being. They speculate that the motive for UKIP involvement must be the wages.

Despite this, the “Yes” campaign somehow thinks that it is acceptable to argue that it needs to join a PEP to become eligible for the EU bribe which in turn can be used for the purposes of financing and winning EU elections (although there seems to be doubt that UKIP, as a national party, can even do this). Whatever the case, the argument looks like one for accepting EU money to make more EU money, and it is inviting political crucifixion from a hard pressed tax payer.

Like the degenerate Marquis de Sade, at a fundamental level the “Yes” campaign is saying “in an age that is utterly corrupt, the best policy is to do as others do.” The voting public will punish UKIP if it adheres to this philosophy and adopts the sense of entitlement possessed by the LibLabCon. They will be punished because in the utterly corrupt age, the public are the ones who are suffering to a breaking point that is not too far away. If UKIP does not want to go down with the LibLabCon ship, it should vote No.

As well as above mentioned Batten pitch, please see the following for other eminently better-argued cases (than mine) for voting No.

Alan Hardy on UKIP’s defeat in the Appeal Court

Posted by juniusukip on July 22, 2011



Another costly legal defeat for UKIP. Another £16,000 of member’s money thrown away in a single day!



And all because Farage’s ego wouldn’t let him accept that UKIP had been in the wrong when they unlawfully tried to ban Mr Hardy from meetings and expel him from the party.



And all because Farage refused to pay a paltry £750 in damages to Mr Hardy!



Click here for the original judgement against UKIP.

Would Nigel have been so keen to fight this case if he had been using money from his own bank account?

Remember what Bannerman said:

Nigel’s taste for pursuing personal vendettas on the party’s credit account, has led to a legal bill running at £140,000 a year.

And now Mr Hardy’s statement:

Hello everyone,

Well, UKIP’s barrister – fine man that he is – argued and argued yesterday in Court 74, Court of Appeal…unsuccessfully. It’s now official: those within UKIP who are so inclined cannot do what they like; they are bound by the law like the rest of us.

Nigel Farage turned up, accompanied by a lady of, shall I say, ample bosom, who I took to be some form of assistant. He disappeared before the proceedings commenced, without having even acknowledged me. She, however, remained and I saw her and Parkin, who was also there, cosying up to one another behind me in the court room. There was also a short, very fat, grey-beared man hovering around the place, clearly as part of the opposing side’s team. Does anyone recognise the description?

Anyway, that’s it in a nutshell. Where they are planning on going from hereon is anyone’s guess. Oh, I almost forgot, when the barrister, the wheelchair-bound Mr Engelman (Trinity Chambers), was asked about the costs he quoted a figure of £16,000 in total. Somehow I find myself doubting that…

ALL GOOD WISHES

ALAN HARDY

UKIP Back in Court: Nigel prepares to throw away at least £30,000 in order to avoid paying £750 in court damages to member of his own party!

Posted by juniusukip on July 21, 2011


Alan Hardy

Readers of this blog will remember that Alan Hardy successfully defeated UKIP in court. This case concerned Gordon Parkin’s – UKIP NE Regional Organiser – decision to ban Mr Hardy from attending UKIP meetings. UKIP’s leadership also tried to expel him from the party. In response, Mr Hardy took them to court. UKIP foolishly relied on Lisa Duffy to argue their case in court. And the result? UKIP lost. They were ordered to reinstate Mr Hardy and pay him £750 in damages See: LINK & LINK

So would Farage accept the judgement in good grace? Fat chance! His ego won’t allow it.

Now what did Bannerman say?

Nigel’s taste for pursuing personal vendettas on the party’s credit account, has led to a legal bill running at £140,000 a year.

See: LINK

UKIP has been given leave to appeal and the case will be heard today. UKIP’s legal costs are likely to be at least £30,000! And even if they win, Mr Hardy will not be liable for UKIP’s costs!

So UKIP’s leadership is willing to waste thousands contesting the original decision of the court rather than pay out a paltry £750! So will Stuart Wheeler be expected to foot the bill? And will Farage even tell him what the money is for? And what does the membership think? Are they happy that the party is willing to spend at least £30,000 in order to avoid paying Mr Hardy £750 in damages?

Farage really needs his head looking at. That crash must have affected his mind more than we originally thought. Spending at least £30,000 to avoid writing a cheque for £750 doesn’t sound like the wisest of moves!

Here is a recent email from Mr Hardy:

Hello everyone,

I’m sure most, if not all of you know, that I obtained judgment in the High Court last year against not only the local chairman of the political party of which I am a member, but also the party itself.

The defendant’s did not like that and appealed. The appeal is to be heard next week in the Court of Appeal in London. As at the original hearing, I shall be representing myself. And, as a condition of the appeal, the other side will not be able to claim costs against me even if they win – and I’ll see to it they don’t! They also have a new barrister on the job; it appears the original one left his chambers for pastures new some time after the hearing last September. I can’t understand why. Perhaps losing against a layman was more than his professional constitution could bear. But that’s his problem. Anyway it’ll be yours truly up before the ‘big beaks’ next week!

I’ve been on something of a weight loss/fitness programme these past six weeks. I’ve lost a total of 16 lbs, which I suppose is fairly good going. Over the last few weeks, however, this has plateau’d to a loss of 1 lb per week, which I came to find discouraging, especially after all the effort it takes. It reached the point where, on Saturday night just gone – I weigh myself each Saturday morning – I resolved to give it up as a bad job and go back to being a fat slob again.

The next morning I woke up and, having drunk my first coffee of the day, went off to buy a copy of the last edition of the News of the World. Now I haven’t bought a copy of that newspaper for YEARS, but as it was the last opportunity to do so I thought I’d see what it had to offer.

I had a good look through it. The glossy supplement didn’t have much of interest to men, apart from a lovely picture of the luminously beautiful Thandie Newton near the front. There was the obligatory crossword near the end and on the opposite page were the star forecasts for the week. Now my star sign is Leo, so I had a look at what the resident clairvoyant had to say. It was this (and you can check on it):

“YOU HAVE THE WILLPOWER TO START, OR RESTART, A FITNESS PLAN AND ENSURE IT WORKS”

Mystic Meg saves the day.

BYE FOR NOW
