Exposing corruption in Nigel Farage's UKIP

UKIP: Alan Hardy’s kangaroo court

Posted by juniusukip on September 3, 2012

Our readers may recall that Alan Hardy took UKIP to court after they unlawfully tried to ban him from attend UKIP meetings. He won and UKIP was left with a legal bill running into thousands. LINK

But Farage is never one to forget a slight. Today, Mr Hardy was to face a UKIP kangaroo court in London. Farage claims that Mr Hardy sent a letter to a newspaper in which he attacked Gordon Parkin, a fellow UKIP member. My Hardy denies this and UKIP have failed to provide a copy of the letter. Mr Hardy wisely decided not to attend after being advised that Farage was determined to kick him out of UKIP regardless of the cost.

My Hardy has threatened legal action if they expel him. So once again Farage is willing to use party funds to pursue a vendetta against a member who has the audacity to stand up for his rights!

UKIP is now an irrelevance in British politics. Indeed, it is a hindrance to the euro-realist cause. It soley exists to keep Farage and his sycophants on the EU Gravy Train.

One must question Ms Parker’s commitment to leaving the EU. She is desperate to become an MEP and join Farage on the Gravy Train for a start. Turkeys don’t vote for Christmas! And how can the electorate have full confidence in a ‘euro-withdrawlist’ who makes money out of advising others on how to make money out of the EU!

Gary Cartwright on ‘Working with UKIP’

Posted by juniusukip on August 30, 2012

 

From Brussels Blog:

I’ve often been asked how I came to work in Brussels.

In a nutshell, I joined UKIP in around 2001 and found myself, having been co-opted onto the London Regional Committee, working with mayoral candidate Frank Maloney. Immediately after that campaign I took myself off to Minsk where I worked with elements of the democratic opposition that have now been absorbed into the Belorussian Popular Front. Its an interesting life…

On my return from Minsk I found a letter on my doormat from Nigel Farage inviting me to come out to Brussels. Thats how it happened. I had studied European Governance and Democratic Theory at Uni, so I suppose I was considered to be as well qualified as anybody in UKIP.

Sadly I fell out with Farage, as so many do, and I have been airbrushed out of UKIP history, and painted as some sort of a right-wing extremist. Anybody associated with me, it is hinted, is also an extremist, something that I find extremely offensive.



Bulletin From Brussels, Issue 1

So lets put the record straight, shall we?

This is from the first issue of Bulletin From Brussels, which I edited for, I seem to recall, 4 issues. It was a bit of fun, and I was quite pleased with it at the time It was a publication of UKIP’s Independence & Democracy Group in the European Parliament.

Whilst I remain on good terms with most of the fine folk in these pictures, I wonder what would happen to them if they were photographed with me now?



Bulletin From Brussels, Issue 3

Although the front page of the Bulletin always featured Nigel Farage, understandable given that he was head of the UKIP delegation in the EP, it was Roger Knapman, then party leader, with whom I always had the most pleasure working.

I have always credited Roger with UKIP’s landmark election results in 2004. Without his political acumen, contacts, and steady hand (albeit with a little help from Kilroy and Dick Morris!) I think UKIP would have struggled to hold the 3 seats gained in 1999.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
But is was not just in Brussels that we produced such literature. I was also tasked by Farage with editing a one-off ‘Independence News’, similar to something that had been produced previously. This, however, was officially a UKIP publication. If anybody associated with me is an extremist, then this cutting must surely beg some answers!

Of course, Nigel Farage is no more an extremist than I am, despite what some might say about him. It was always easy to write copy for him as he always had a clear idea of what he wanted to say, and generally trusted his staff to deliver.

And so there you have it. Since leaving the Independence & Democracy Group I have worked with Independent MEPs in 2 parliaments, and to this day I am happy to work with, in an official capacity, 2 UKIP MEPs.

I also had a brief spell working as a journalist, during which period I presented a report on extremism in the EU to the Simon Weisenthal Centre. Life is never dull in the world of politics!

UKIP: Back from our hols

Posted by juniusukip on August 28, 2012

The Junius Team have been taking a well-deserved break from the wonderful world of UKIP. And in our absence nothing much has changed.

Farage’s sycophants continue to bluster and lie about GLW and this site. The latest claim is that our absence is down to alleged threatened legal action from Gerard Batten. Wolfman McGough keeps threatening dire consequences regarding comments made by Batten’s former employee. We can confirm that the lady in question would more than welcome legal action from Gerard and UKIP. It would then enable her to air some VERY dirty UKIP linen in public. For more on this: LINK & LINK

We note that UKIP is putting up candidates to run for police commissioner in various parts of the country. The biggest laugh is that Godfrey Bloom is standing in Humberside! That’s rather like putting Jack the Ripper in charge of a women’s refuge!

Of course, none will get elected.

UKIP’s Corby by-election candidate has caused some ruffled feathers in the East Midlands. That she stood against UKIP in a previous election and couldn’t be bothered to stand for the party in local elections has been noted. That she is yet another wannabe MEP candidate and friend of Lisa Duffy also comes as no surprise. So Lisa Duffy is in charge of the campaign! Wonderful! They never learn do they? Ms Duffy is about as much use as a chocolate teapot on a very hot day!

UKIP has now become a complete irrelevance in British politics. They will never get anyone elected to Westminster. They will never form a government. UKIP exists solely to keep Farage and his sycophants on the EU Gravy Train. Nigel and his chums have done very well out of the EU and the UK taxpayer. So why would they want to vote themselves out of a job?

They may get MEPs back in 2014, but they will achieve nothing. Are we any closer to getting out of the EU thanks to UKIP? The answer is no. We are far more likely to get out of the EU thanks to EU debt and the fall out following the collapse of the euro zone.

UKIP: More hypocrisy from Nigel Farage

Posted by juniusukip on August 8, 2012

From New Europe:

Ah, the Olympics. At such a huge sporting event, there’s only one thing on politicians minds; how can I milk this?

London Mayor, Boris Johnson has grasped the opportunity to strengthen his challenge to David Cameron, making the most of the opportunity.

UKIP have also been spurred on to offer a raffle, of a silver bar. They hope to raise 10 grand for 700 pounds worth of the metal. “This silver bar is a generous donation from Humberside member John Galt,” said the organiser, perhaps unaware that Galt is the protagonist in the deeply dreary Ayn Rand’s 1957 novel Atlas Shrugged, so beloved a book of the party’s leading thinkers.

Party leader, Nigel Farage has also been swept up in the Olympic spirit, “It’s been a fabulous week for our elite athletes in all sports. We’ve had some brililant results in rowing, shooting, cycling and the swimming but it’s hard to top Jessica Ennis’ amazing victory in the heptathalon, particularly with the weight of a nation’s expectations on her shoulders,” he says on the party website.

He adds, “Our ‘Face of the Games’ became the ‘Queen of the Games’ last night, while Mo Farah and Greg Rutherford also grabbed gold at the highest level.”

But UKIP weren’t always fans of the games.

During the bidding process the party, led by their then representatives on the London Assembly, fought hard for the games to be brought to… Paris.

Yes, the pro-Britain patriots went for France, even hoisting a giant banner at City Hall emblazoned with the Paris bid logo and the French tricolour.

Damian Hockney, UKIP London assembly member, said an Olympics-free London would save the country from billions of pounds of debt. As for Paris, “the French will make it work and make a thumping great profit out of it”.

This did not go down well in London, or even in Paris.

Senior executives of the French bid to host the Games met British Olympic officials in Athens to make an official complaint. Philippe Baudillon, chief executive of the Paris bid, said UKIP had used its logo without permission and had given the impression that Paris was breaching Olympic rules.

UKIP: Jon Ison continues his destruction in the West Midlands

Posted by juniusukip on July 30, 2012

A West Midlands regional membership spread sheet, showing the variations in membership numbers by month shown to the Junius team reveal that it’s Solihull and Meriden Branch chairman John Ison has set a new party record in losing his association a staggering 16 members since April 2012, that’s nearly a 30% decrease in just 4 months!

Ison has resided over the collapse of the (until recently) largest branch in the West Midlands! Before he took over the branch was thriving had 100+ members, BUT is now down to a pitiful 45 members. (So a near loss of 65 members over his entire chairmanship of just over 12 months!)

In the same period all branch activity as stopped, before ISON took over the branch it had 17 candidates in place for the 2010 local elections. This year he didn’t put up a single candidate!

Proof that more and more people are distancing themselves from this vindictive and largely untrustworthy individual !

Mr Ison now appears to ruling his sinking ship with an iron fist to hold some level of position within UKIP. Aware of his own local unpopularity Ison has refused on hold an AGM for the branch fearing that a vote of no confidence will be issued and passed against him!

Constitutionally this is not allowed though how much longer will UKIP let it continue???????? Will the West Midlands RO step in a either to dissolve the branch or demand an EGM to hold the yearly elections as per party rules ?

UKIP: Lack of Joined up Thinking, or Something Else?

UKIP never showed much of a propensity for joined up thinking. I well remember: the much vaunted policy paper launches which were embarrassing, with content being so controlled (and redacted) from above, and with the suggestion of unseen hands in the background that I eventually came to agree with Roger Knapman – architect of the 2004 Euro election success – that UKIP should have remained a one issue party.

I note an article on their party website complaining that a recently announced cut in wind energy subsidies is not enough – (complaining about wind energy is the party’s stock in trade). But I also note that in UKIP’s aged and out of date environment and energy policy, the party calls for 50% of Britain’s power to come from nuclear generation. I have no problem with that per se, in fact I contributed to that paper, but does the party not realise the extent to which nuclear energy is subsidised in the UK?

Subsidies for nuclear energy are largely disguised, a matter recently brought up with ministers by backbenchers in the Commons. For example: limitation of liabilities, underwriting of insurance costs, subsidising waste disposal, and most importantly providing institutional support for the concept of nuclear energy. Other areas of concern have been identified.

UKIP states in the article I refer to above that “The whole wind farm industry is a con and is not viable without subsidies. It is wrong that the taxpayer should be paying to keep afloat private businesses, often based abroad,…”

British energy, which operates nuclear plants, came close to bankruptcy in 2004, and was saved by, guess what, a government subsidy of £3billion. France’s EDF now owns 80% of British Energy.

Do you see what I mean about lack of joined up thinking?

But as regards UKIP’s position, we have to ask if it is indeed lack of joined up thinking, or is it those aforementioned unseen hands in the backgroung that are responsible for the lack of consistency, at least in this policy area? I personally suspect the latter.

UKIP: Lord Fudge

Posted by juniusukip on July 25, 2012

Having finally accepted that his chances of a peerage recede further with every knock on the door from OLAF, Nigel Farage has decided to follow the lead of Christopher Monckton and simply pretend to be a member of the House of Lords. Ladies and Gentlemen – we give you ‘Whingeing Lord Fudge!’

In a press conference today Lord Fudge told twenty empty chairs “I am repositioning the party. If Huhne goes down I’ll be standing in Eastleigh, and I’ve told the activists they have to turn up in fancy dress, pull silly faces, and pretend to be someone they’re not. I told Monckton he can just come as he is though. Despite the new image, the policies will stay the same, utter crap.”
The party’s press officer was upbeat, pointing out that in a recent council election, the Fresh Choice for Crumbledown-on-Sea candidate, Colonel Dickie Farquarson (deceased), polled a whopping 3 votes. “That’s 3 more than we would have got if we had not stood, which proves that we are now the UK’s second party” he gloated.
Party members will soon receive a letter from the NEC advising them of a constitutional change knocked up in a ramshackle bar in St James which will require them in future to address the party leader as M’Luddite.
Lord Monckton, three times Olympic gold medallist and former adviser to the Aga Khan, was unavailable for comment.

UKIP: Derek Clark storms out of East Midlands Regional Committee Meeting

Posted by juniusukip on July 22, 2012

How we laughed when we heard about last Monday’s East Midlands meeting! The new committee decided to ask Derek a few awkward questions regarding his not so illustrious career as an MEP.

Mr and Mrs Ransome

Derek was asked why he had donated so little money to the region since becoming an MEP. He was also asked why he had lied to the committee about the OLAF investigation. Mr and Mrs Ransome took this rather badly and stormed out of the meeting. They were quickly followed by Derek!

It comes as no surprise that Clark was unwilling to defend himself against the charges brought him. For how can you defend lies, greed and dishonesty?

Chris Pain is the new regional chairman for the East Midlands. He replaces the incompetent and dishonest Clark.
