Yet more UKIP stories

There's another slew of allegations about UKIP in The Times and The Telegraph today, alledging a whole slew of financial irregularities. It seems that the media are out to get the party in a big way.

One of the journos involved is a little wet behind the ears and essentially revealed his sources, one of them being a total fuckwit known as Greg Lance-Watkins (who is being fed by some disgruntled ex-UKIP people, and a couple of current ones (who will shortly not be)). In case you haven't heard his name, he is the... er... gentleman who condoned the murder of Anna Lindh in 2003.
In e-mails sent to a variety of organisations, he said: "I do hope there will be patriots in Britain with the courage to deal with traitors that has been shown in Sweden.

"If our corrupt politicians force us to take the same route to defend our economy and country... then I suggest the first patriot to take direct action is remembered by putting his or her statue on the remaining plinth in Trafalgar Square."
...

Last night Mr Lance-Watkins stood by his comments. "Yes, I do support the execution of elected politicians when they seek to betray the electorate and their country," he said.

(Interestingly, Daniel Foggo, who wrote that article, is the journo who wrote this morning's article for The Times.)

So, for your edification, I thought that I would publish the latest email missive from Greg, who sends them regularly to a number of organisations. This particular email is one of the less libellous ones. Oh, and the "UKIP Forum" that he mentions is, in fact, The British Independence and Democracy Forum which, whilst it used to be called the UKIP Forum, was asked to cease using that URL some time ago since it is not, in any way, affiliated with UKIP (although several UKIP members post there).

Hi,

Having seen many lies, distortions and abuse on UKIP Forum by serial liars like Douglas Denny, Mark Croucher and others and also gratuitous abuse by the dishonest foul mouthed Annabell Fuller aka ‘BellyTricks’, and her odious little friend the revolting and childish ‘Devils Kitchen’ – was particularly disgusted at the endless dishonest and ill informed attacks made of people who resigned from EUkip in their disgust at the clearly dishonest leadership team.

The sordid, ill mannered behaviour of those in the pay of the EU through EUkip and their endless deceipt, duplicity and corruption from the unarguable dishonesty and fraud of Tom Wise, clearly on a self enrichment scam, the duplicty of the NEC, MEPs and the corrupt inquiry of Trevor Colman in covering up shows them all to have colluded in the fraud. The willingness to distort and lie in such an EU style relative to the whistleblower and the duplicity and deception of Lindsay jenkins repeating lies verbally and in written form regarding myself. The lies of Denny, Malcolm Wood, John Moran, Graham Booth and others in fear of exposure by myself and finally the lies about the £363,000 make one sick at the thought that these revolting people have siezed the controls, so clearly for their own gain as useful idiots acting for the EU, of EUkip which held such promise for the repatriation of independence and sovereignty for its grass roots and the honest activists.

I was aware that Alan Bown had made donations to EUkip during a period when seemingly he had lapsed from the electoral roll – I had thought the contribution was almost £500,000 but seemingly I over estimated – I had assumed that Alan Bown had dropped off of the electoral roll for personal reasons as I knew he still had his house and other properties and I assumed he had done so to either avoid begging letters having sold his business, to avoid ‘old rivalries’ as his background was possibly unsavoury having made his money as a professional gambler with betting shops, or finally that having taken up with some woman now he had money he was elluding a spouse – who knows.

I DID know AB was not on the electoral roll and I spoke to the then treasurer John deRoeke, David Lott and Nigel Farage advocating they regularise the matter to avoid being ‘zapped’ when they could politically least afford it!

This and other reasons combine to clarify why I always stated Nigel Farage was EUkip’s greatest asset and greatest liability – NF is clearly the only direct link wittingly between the illegal money and the present management since Alan Bown had no legal responsibility to know his payment was unlawful – it was the duty of EUkip to ensure ALL donations were lawful NF & others deliberately floutted the law even if it could be shown they originally acted out of incompetence.

To see the odious behaviour of Farage supporters and those seeking to keep their snouts, if not in the troughs at least clear of risk, prepared to berate, lie, denigrate and distort – particularly on UKIP Forum is a sickening spectacle.

Consider the lies and distortions of the posturing and idiotic little Croucher where I have lifted his whole farago of lies from UKIP Forum and commented in text commencing >>> and ending <<<

As follows but let me first make it very clear that Mark Croucher is a liar, a cheat, duplicitous, untrustworthy and beneath contempt having done little but long term harm to EUkip and the entire EUroSceptic movement with his dishonesty and embittered little ego, his vile behaviour and his corruption. A less suitable person for employ with the public it would be hard to find and for his evil betrayal of the principles of Patriotism, EUroScepticism and common decency I wish him rapid failure in his future ventures, commensurate with the damage he has don in EUkip – a sordid little man of no visible merit, vicious and cowardly exploiting privilige for personal gain. I accept in good company with many of the others who have control of EUkip.

The articles in The Sunday Telegraph and subsequently again in The Sunday Telegraph and Sunday Times, Independent, Telegraph, Guardian, Express and tomorrow The Independent, Telegraph, Guardian and various other media and on Sunday The Sunday Times whose article is unarguable and totally vindicates my often repeated comments though I am sure such as the unstable little Denny, Page, Croucher, Wood, Moran, Wise, Knapman, Batten, Jenkins, Booth and other liars, cheats and dissemblers will none of them be man enough nor have the integrity to apologise for the lies they have spread about me just as The Sunday Telegraph will clearly show my warnings have been right – to the detail!

We desperately need a strong opposition in Government as a Government is as good as its opposition – is it any wonder Labour are a disaster – just look at the callibre of The Tories to understand how they can be so dishonest and so incompetent – clearly apart from the sad old Ming and his team of s**t Eaters, drunk & perverts it would seem every British Party has a liar, a cheat and a fraud as leader, clearly EUkip is becoming more mainstream by the minute, they even have a couple of ineffectual passed over Peers now!

Britain desperately needs a STRONG EUroRealist Party Pressure Group acting politically to chuck the evil communist construct of a EUropean soviet and to redeem our democracy and the fundamental human right of self determination liberated from the undemocratic EU the communist Gaulleiters and the doctorine of Common Purpose so wrapped in the dishonesties and control of Political Correctness, new speak and false fears of SARS, BSE, F&M, Global warming, religious fears, fake terrorism and Climate Change which man does NOT cause and can not influence as we have almost no understanding of its causes cyclicly as we move from ice age to ice age!

I warned many years ago that UKIP was our lifeboat but sadly it has been seized by crooks, pirates and freebooters for their own gain and glory.

I warned against permitting the corrupt to seize EUkip and I said I would act if they did.

I am proud to say that I have participated in every exposure of the truth so far and I promise you aint seen nothing yet – we are inching ever closer to a possible series of prison cells but there is still time for the corrupt to apologise and resign – returning that which they have perloined as they depart. I will continue to supply the media with material without fear or favour until UKIP is returned to the grass roots and the honest. People like Page, Croucher and their ilk serve their cause ill with lies and distortions to journalists. Just as EUkip being in such a parlous stage that currently the press office referrs all questions to Farage! In view of the dishonesty and lies it is probably a good idea as that way at least only one ‘story’ gets spun!

Now to show just how serious are the lies of EUkip I will deal with EUkip’s Press Officer’s mailing minded that he is still contractually employed until April though seemingly on paid holiday in return I hear for his silence for which he will be rewarded!

It seems to me that this guy is just a wee bit unhinged, frankly. However, The Times and The Telegraph do take him seriously, it seems. Which is weird because, having seen a goodly number of his lunatic ravings, I wouldn't.

As far as I am aware, none of these stories have any real substance to them; indeed, whilst The Telegraph keeps on harping back to its story about lots of money not making it into the central accounts, one thing that the Electoral Commission's report has shown is that the story is false.

However, it would seem indisputable that UKIP's finances could be run rather more professionally. The problem is that that would require a full-time Treasurer (rather than a Treasurer who has a day-job as an accountant, as they have had so far).

It should be pointed out at this stage, that your humble Devil is running for the UKIP National Executive Committee and, if elected, will do his level best to ensure that these sorts of allegations cannot be made again.

That is, if the party survives that long...

Well DK, I'm a UKIP member & you will get my vote.

only hope you know what you are letting yourself in for, looking at the bruising experience NEC membership has been for some people!

Seems like a loon, no doubt about that - though he's right about you being "revolting and childish" ;-)

The lesson from the Tories' struggles in the 90's is just as apposite here, though; when faced with a hostile press you simply cannot give them this sort of ammunition. They destroyed Major and they may destroy you, too.

There are a lot of potential UKIP voters out there - as we were discussing the other day, 40% of people say they want out of the EU - but this sort of thing simply turns them off.

Got to clear out these gibbering lunatics if you're serious about moving forwards, DK.

Good luck with your shot at the National Exec.

Well, I will be voting for Mrs Scroggins. I don't care what happened to that teabag, she gets my vote.

Lance-Watkins is one of the nastiest individuals its ever been my displeasure to encounter. As well as the fact that he will round on *anyone* who questions his rantings and pour out the kind of vitriol that the likes of you or I normally reserve for Blair and Cameron, he is also a raging anti-Semite, which frankly just pisses me off even more.

Sam Duncan said...

Seems like a nice chap.

Even with all the swearing, you still come across as more rational and clear-headed than that bloke.

"As far as I am aware..."

Well, that's just it, isn't it? He may sound like a loon, but what if he's right? The entire anti-EU movement sounded like loons to me 20 years ago.

Trixy said...

He's also just called me up and hung up when I answered.

So he's a very mature chap.

Greg Lance Watkins is a national asset, not afraid to challenge and a maverick. Greg will never stand by while corruption takes place. its always easier to look the way for lesser mortals, Greg makes a stand and argues his position with articulate eloquence. long may he be a thorn in the side of the corrupt and corruptable
