UKIP: The Robert Galvin Report

Posted by juniusukip on January 31, 2012

The Galvin Report, named after Robert Galvin, the EU Internal Audit official, was written in 2006 as an audit of the expenses and allowances claimed by a sample of more than 160 MEPs. The existence of this report was kept secret until February 2008 when news of its existence was made public by Chris Davies MEP. Even then, its contents remained secret and a select group of MEPs were only allowed to read the report individually in a locked and guarded room.

The Report’s findings include the following:

  1. Serious and repeated anomalies in payments for office assistance and services.
  2. Dubious large cash payments are made to staff and service providers over and above salaries.
  3. Improper registration and tax compliance of service providers.
  4. Invoicing is lax or non-existent.
  5. Some MEPs are paying set amounts straight into the coffers of their political parties.
  6. Paying Agents’ expense claims are opaque or even unrecorded.

We would urge all of our readers to write to Marjory Van Den Broeke, Head of Press at the European Parliament, to demand that they publish a full list of all those MEPs forced to pay back expenses.

Subject: RE: THE ROBERT GALVIN REPORT

Dear NAME REMOVED

Thank you for your email. Please accept my apologies for the delay in my response to you. I have been liaising with my colleagues in the European Parliament regarding your concerns.

The Galvin report was published in full in the European Parliament’s register for documents. As far as I am aware the names of the MEPs concerned were never actually in the report. It was an internal audit. For your information, any requests for documents to the Parliament’s register can be made via their online form:

I understand that Marjory Van Den Broeke, Head of Press at the European Parliament, is the person who has been dealing with requests for these names as Parliament spokesperson. You may wish to contact Marjory Van Den Broeke.

Thank you again for your correspondence.

As you may be aware I will be standing down as MEP for the West Midlands on 4th February 2012. In the case that your correspondence is still outstanding, written permission is required from you for the matter and your details to be passed on to my successor.

Yours sincerely,

Liz Lynne MEP

UKIP: A classic quote from Nigel Farage!

Posted by juniusukip on January 30, 2012

The UKIP circus
Yes I am a libertarian.  I think prostitution, for instance, should be decriminalised and regulated.  I feel that about drugs too.  I am opposed to the hunting ban and the smoking ban, too.  What have they to do with government?

Daily Telegraph. 18 November 2010.

This is what Nelson McCausland current Minister (MLA) for Social Development in the Northern Irish Government – thinks of Nigel Farage and his take on libertarianism.

Nigel Farage MEP is the leader of the United Kingdom Independence Party.  Many Ulster folk will share their stance in relation to the European Union but there is another aspect of UKIP which most people will find less appealing and that is its libertarianism.

The libertarianism of the UKIP leader leads him to a position where he wants to legalise prostitution and heroin!  That is the sort of position that libertarianism leads to.
End of quote.
Mr McCausland needs to have a chat with those who know Nigel personally. He would then perhaps realise why Farage is so keen to legalise prostitution and drugs. Or just ask Annabelle Fuller for a real insider view on her ‘boss’.

UKIP: Farage in the Express

Posted by juniusukip on January 30, 2012

We note that the Daily Express has been quoting Nigel Farage in a recent article on the EU. Farage claims that he is determined to find out “exactly how they were wasting people’s money”!

What a pity that the Express reporter couldn’t be bothered to ask Nigel the same question! How about starting off with asking Farage what happened to the £211,000 that ‘vanished’ from UKIP’s SE accounts? Or why not ask Nigel how he spent the £2 million he claimed in expenses as an MEP? See: LINK

And what of the allegation that Farage has been ordered by OLAF to pay back a ‘substantial’ amount of money to the EU? We note that he refuses to discuss the allegation. See: LINK

And don’t forget that employs his wife on £30,000 a year – all thanks to the EU. And what about Annabelle Fuller, Nigel’s mistress? How much is she getting from the EU purse?

And remember this?

On July 25th 1999, Meridian TV’s ‘Seven Days’ programme, put a straight question to Mr Farage, and received in response an unequivocal answer. An answer that has now come back to haunt Nigel.

Transcript:

Reporter Phil 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?

Nigel 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.
Ends

And there you have it – straight from his own mouth – he has not kept his promise! Simple, end of story, no argument! He lied! Over 11 years on and still no full audit of his accounts, expenses, etc!

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

Posted by juniusukip on January 27, 2012

An MEP from the UK Independence Party has been condemned by LGBT groups for questioning the European Commission on the legitimacy of funding of an LGBT rights organisation.

Godfrey Bloom was criticised by The European Parliament’s Intergroup on LGBT rights for asking the European Commission to justify the funding given to the International Gay and Lesbian Association, Europe.

Mr Bloom was accused by lesbian MEP, Nikki Sinclaire, of abusively calling her “queer”, which UKIP denies. The MEP wrote several questions to the European Commission which alleged that the group received funding from private donors who could “own” NGOs.

The Intergroup says this infers questions over the legitimacy of ILGA-Europe’s work towards equality for LGBT people.

As the main organisation working for LGBT rights, ILGA-Europe receives funding from several sources, the biggest being the European Commission. The organisation’s accounts are publicly available, and they are regularly audited.

A comment made by Michael Cashman, MEP, co-president of the EP LGBT Intergroup said: “Mr Bloom’s attempt to undermine European funding is unworthy of exposure. He should focus on the substantial question, which is equality and non-discrimination. But I don’t expect this from a colleague who believes women’s rights are a waste of time. Thankfully, he doesn’t represent the majority of decent British people.”

Ulrike Lunacek MEP, Co-president of the LGBT Intergroup, commented, saying that Mr Bloom: “is a true role model for bullies around Europe.”

A similar question was asked by Konrad Szymański, a Polish MEP last month, and The European Commission is to address their questions in coming weeks.

However, a UKIP spokesman told PinkNews.co.uk today that Bloom was not homophobic but was looking out for the interests of the taxpayer.

He said: “Bloom and UKIP’s beef as a whole is we are uncomfortable with people calling themselves NGOs when they are state funded.”

UKIP’s spokesman said the gay rights group obtains 75% of its funding from the EU and the Dutch government.

He continued: “He who pays the piper calls the tune.

“IGLA-Europe is dishonest about its relationship with the EU. It’s going to be very difficult if the group wished to oppose strongly an EU policy because there would be a threat that their funds would be cut.

“To describe themselves as an NGO is false. It’s not about a policy issue, it’s about the relationship between that body and government.”

Bloom asked the Commission: “How does the Commission view the influence that wealthy individuals may exert over the NGOs they are subsidising?

“Is there a risk that persons such as George Soros could “buy” themselves one or more NGOs that are economically dependent on their donations?”

Godfrey Bloom was ejected from the European Parliament chambers in 2010 after heckling German MEP, Martin Schulz with the Nazi slogan: “Ein Volk, ein Reich, ein Fuehrer,” to German politician, Martin Schulz.

An alternative to the EU

Posted by juniusukip on January 25, 2012

We recieved this from one of our contacts. We are happy to share it with our readers.
PRESS RELEASE
 
A new YouGov opinion poll for Hugo van Randwyck shows support for EFTA/EEA has increased to 44%, while support for EU/EEA membership has fallen to 21. EFTA is the European Free Trade Association, which allows member countries to run their own agriculture, fisheries, Home Affairs and Justice, and if the UK were a member, would contribute around £3bn less to the EU per year. The EEA, is the European Economic Area, which allows for free movement of goods, services, capital and people in all EU countries and also Norway, Iceland and Lichtenstein. The Don’t Know is high at 35%, interestingly with those 60+ having a 25% Don’t Know and those 18-24 having a 49% Don’t Know..
A similar poll was conducted in 2010 and the results below show a comparison with 2010 in brackets, i.e. 2012 (2010). The new poll also adds that as a member of EFTA, the UK can still be a member of the EEA. Also the question has been added to, i.e. from EFTA or EU, to EFTA/EEA or EU/EEA.
EFTA/EEA 44% (39%)
EU/EEA 21% (36%)
Don’t Know 35% (25%)
All figures, unless otherwise stated, are from YouGov Plc.  Total sample size was 2,775 adults. Fieldwork was undertaken between 12th – 16th January 2012.  The survey was carried out online. The figures have been weighted and are representative of all GB adults (aged 18+).
Full results can also be seen on the YouGov website:
The poll was commissioned by Hugo van Randwyck, who has also written and spoken of EFTA/EEA as an off-the-shelf alternative to EU/EEA membership.

Full Questions text:
“The European Free Trade Association (EFTA) was set up in 1960.  Britain had previously been a member of the EFTA, but it left to join the European Community (the EC, which later became the EU) in 1973.
In the 1990s the EFTA joined the EEA (European Economic Area), of which the EU is also a member, which allows for free movement of goods, services, capital and people in all EU countries.  If Britain became a member of the EFTA, this would not affect its membership of the EEA. The EFTA has no common agricultural or fisheries policy, no economic union, nor any common foreign, security and defence policy between individual countries.  These are run by the parliamentary member states. As a result, the cost of Britain belonging to the EFTA, if it decided to join, is estimated to be approximately £3 billion per year.  Current members include Norway, Iceland and Liechtenstein.
As a result of Britain’s membership of the EU, it maintains common policies on trade, agriculture, fisheries and regional development, as well as security and defence policy.  The EU has certain control over what happens between countries (such as the free movement of goods, services, capital and people) but also – to an extent – what happens within the individual countries.  Membership of the EU is expected to cost an estimated £6 billion in 2010-11.  Current members include France, Spain and  Germany.”
With this in mind, which would you prefer Britain to be in?
The EU (European Union) and EAA (European Economic Area)
The EFTA (European Free Trade Association) and EAA (European Economic Area)

UKIP on just 1% of the vote

Posted by juniusukip on January 23, 2012

Forget all the usual nonsense that continues to pour forth from Farage and his sycophants about UKIP replacing the Lib Dems as the third party in British politics. Stuart Parr – never one to let the truth get in the way of a good lie – has even gone on record as saying that “UKIP is quite firmly cemented as the third party in English local politics”. 
But what can you expect from an individual (known as ‘the Muppet Man’ in UKIPPER circles) who would be more than willing to kiss Farage’s backside on national TV in order to win continued favour from his corrupt boss? LINK
Stuart Parr entertains the crowds during the last UKIP conference
Ignore Parr’s lies. Here are the facts:
A by-election summery (nine by-elections) for December puts UKIP at just 1% and in seventh place.

35.4% Conservative
30.4% Labour
15.1% Liberal Democrat
6.7% Green
5.7% Nationalist
2.6% Independent
1.0% UKIP

3.0% Others

The UK Polling Report still puts the Lib Dems firmly in third place. UKIP is nowhere in sight! LINK
So UKIP continues to decline under Nigel Farage’s inept and corrupt leadership!

Kim Gandy: Nigel Farage opens his arms to embrace yet another extremist in the UKIP ranks

Posted by juniusukip on January 19, 2012

Just good friends. Nigel Farage and Kim Gandy.
The name of Kim Gandy is causing a bit of a stir in UKIP circles at the moment. The East London Advertiser is also taking an interest in her, not least because of the fact that a senior UKIP figure in London is facing serious allegations, and his case would not be helped in the least by the exposure of bigotry within UKIP in London.

On February 11 2011 Ms Gandy posted a photo of 2 ‘Love Music, Hate racism’ activists on Facebook, along with the comment “Scum like this should be sterilised at the very least”.
She also appears to be connected with a website, ‘The British Patriots Society’. http://www.britishpatriotssociety.co.uk/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=92:labours-own-goal-the-desecration-of-british-multiculture&catid=46:kim-gandy-articles&lang=en Note the url actually contains Gandy’s full name.
On this website, she refers to Muslims as “the lowlife scum society of Extreme Islam”. She appears to like the word “scum”.
She stood as a UKIP candidate in Basildon in 2011, and. she puts out UKIP leaflets in other parts of east London.  http://www.electionleaflets.org/leaflets/4957/

Sign the e-petition to stop this!
Gandy, formerly a member of the English Democrats, and allegedly linked with the EDL, is an object of ridicule. She was the subject of a mocking e-petition (which, unsurprisingly, was rejected!) http://epetitions.direct.gov.uk/petitions/18208
Olly Neville, posted an article on Independence Home on January 18th which has this to say about Gandy:
“I have never felt compelled to write an article on a nobody but I feel the nobody that is Gandy raises a lot of issues about UKIP…
Since I have known of Kim Gandy for many years, including when she was a die hard supporter of the English Democrats nothing she says, thinks or does surprises me. What does surprise me and make my stomach churn is the continuous and purposeful refusal for UKIP members as a whole to do anything about her. Even before she joined UKIP her behaviour was known. Regardless of her grandiose claims she did not leave the anti-unionist English Democrats party and join a pro-unionist party like UKIP. She was kicked out. So her behaviour is not new but has been a continuous disgrace on UKIP.”   http://www.indhome.com/2012/01/curious-case-kim-gandy/
Gandy claims that she influenced Nigel Farage into changing UKIP policy by supporting the concept of an English Parliament. http://englishpassport.org/2011/03/06/ukips-english-parliament-supporters-distraught-after-failure-to-change-english-assembly-policy/
Now that is interesting – how might Gandy gain influence over Farage? She has what he likes very much, a rather large derriére, and they do appear to be very close!

UKIP: Eight things that Paul Nuttall would rather you didn’t know

Posted by juniusukip on January 18, 2012

Three tits and a blonde

We note that the odious Paul Nuttall has been crowing about being quoted in the Daily Express. What a pity that the paper in question couldn’t be bothered to do a little bit of research before seeking quotes from this disgusting, corrupt and lying individual. We would advise them in future to avoid this man least they be tainted by his corruption.

The odious Paul Nuttall is a disgrace to UKIP and the whole euro-realist movement. The sooner he is kicked out as an MEP the better!

1.- Paul Nuttall is often called “Mussolini”, even by members of his own party. Former UKIP members have dubbed him “Il Duce of the North-West”.

2.- UKIP North West was dealt a massive blow after several party members resigned following disputes with Paul Nuttall over his dictatorial attitude.

3.- Nuttall has one of the worst attendance records in the European Parliament, meaning he’s often absent when crucial decisions for Britain have to be made.

4.- Nevertheless, that’s never stopped him from living a lavish lifestyle at the taxpayer’s expense.

5.- He’s forced criminal convicts on UKIP branches.

6.- Nuttall and Farage colluded to trick UKIP members from other regions into thinking the North-West region was thriving, by listing phantom branches on the party’s website.

7.- He and Farage worked together to undermine the democratically-elected candidate of UKIP Gregg Beaman, until the latter resigned in disgust.

8.- Nuttall has forged close links with far-right, fascist, homophobic and racist groups in the European Parliament.

UKIP’s Stuart Parr describes UKIP literature as "xenophobic crap”

Posted by juniusukip on January 17, 2012

Stuart Parr (parish councillor, former Lib Dem supporter and twat) is perhaps best known for telling lies about Nikki Sinclaire and kissing Nigel’s backside at every opportunity via his ‘Farage Sycophants (bloggers) 4 UKIP’ blog. LINK

However, his ‘love affair’ with Nigel may soon come to an end after certain comments recently came back to haunt him!

Eyebrows have been raised in UKIPPER circles after it emerged that Parr once described UKIP literature on his blog asthe usual inconsistent xenophobic crap ……… stops me from taking UKIP seriously at all”. 

It moves, it talks, it walks but the lights went out years ago

And how apt that Mr Parr titled his blog ‘The Insane Ramblings of Wonko the Sane’!

So why is Parr now quite happy to promote a party and a leader that happily sits with fascists and racists in the EFD group in the EU parliament? LINK . So much for his concerns about xenophobia! The man is a hypocrite!

Click on the picture to get a closer look
Here is the full text:
“It has been brought to my attention that the English Democrats are fielding Garry Bushell in the delayed elections in South Staffs.
My contact forwarded me a copy of the election leaflets from each party that’s standing. Conservatives … dull. Labour … dull, lies and false promises (what else would you expect from a party headed up by Traitor Blair?). Lib Dems … dull and 4 pages! UKIP … the usual inconsistent xenophobic crap. English Democrats … excellent!
The EDP leaflet was a single page, bright and clear. It is in red and white (of course) and clearly sets out what they are standing for in a few paragraphs and bullet points. It looks completely different from the standard dullness of the main three parties and the garish purple and yellow of the UKIP.
While I’m on the subject of the UKIP leaflet, there were some inconsistencies. Their first bullet point said that they would withdraw the UK from the EU and save £39m a day. Then the third bullet point says that with the £30m a day saved from leaving the EU they would cut council tax. So which is it? £39m or £30m a day? Also, is that £39m (or £30m) a day net of the lost trade, subsidies, grants and preferrential trade agreements that we get from the EU? Apart from the inconsistencies such as the money side of things, the deliberate missing out of important information and deliberate misleading stops me from taking UKIP seriously at all.
South Staffs is a fairly rural constituency and I think it would benefit from the time and attention that the English Democrats could give it.

I also think it would benefit from the increased profile having a minor celebrity and journalist as it’s elected representitive. Finally, as an English constituency and one that would be swallowed up by a meaningless region that it has no links to, I think voting for a non-regional, pro-English party would be in its best interests.

I normally vote Lib Dems myself but if I was in South Staffs, I would certainly take this opportunity to vote for Garry Bushell.”

UKIP: A question for Nigel Farage

Posted by juniusukip on January 16, 2012

Would Nigel Farage care to comment on the allegation that OLAF – the EU’s anti-fraud office – has ordered him to pay back “a substantial amount of money” after he was found guilty of misusing his MEP allowances? It has been said that the sum in question exceeds the amount that Derek Clark was ordered to pay back. LINK

Nigel can contact this blog or GLW to confirm or deny it.

And how sad that Nigel Farage has to brag that he has a chauffeur. Is he really that insecure that he feels the need to try to impress people – usually women – with this rubbish? However, we feel sure that the hard-pressed British taxpayer will be glad to know that they are subsidising Farage’s life of luxury as an MEP!
