The accountant is Robin Collet. Robin Collet had an aneurysm whilst driving in his car, swerved off the road and into a ditch. Luckily, the person behind him had a relative who had recently had an aneurysm, knew the signs immediately, called 999 and Robin got to hospital in time.
The leading specialists in the UK were flown down to treat him and gave him a 1% chance of survival and when he did, indeed, pull through all of the specialists in the country flew down to wonder at how the bloody hell he had managed it.
So UKIP South East applied for an extension to the accounts, given these circumstances, and it was granted by the Electoral Commission. And now the EC are saying that they are going to fine us for late filing of the accounts...
I think that it is time to find out who the people comprising this shadowy Electoral Commission are, don't you?
UPDATE: Stephen Pollard is right about the Electoral Commission.
A rule designed to stop foreign donors is being used to stop UKIP taking money from a British citizen who has created thousands of jobs and paid millions in tax.
Meanwhile, electoral fraud is rife and the useless Sam Younger does nothing of any value. What a pathetic man, What a ridiculous body. What a warped sense of priorities.
He was doing so well, and then writes something like this...
As regular readers will know, I regard UKIP as a bunch of nutters and think their policy of pulling out of the EU dangerous folly.
Stephen, the very least that you could do would be to provide a link, for those of us who do not read you very often, as to why you think that "pulling out of the EU [is a] dangerous folly". Personally, I think that withdrawal makes every kind of sense and there are absolutely no arguments for remaining in; I've certainly never heard one convincing argument for staying.
But, anyway, I digress: the Electoral Commission: what a bunch of poisonous twits, eh?
UPDATE 2: Stephen Pollard has now posted a link to a Civitas paper that he wrote [PDF] with, of all people, Lord Pearson.
UPDATE 3: having read the conclusion of the paper so far, I disgree utterly and I believe that events since 2005 (when it was written) will back me up (not least Pearson's defection). However, I have promised Stephen a proper fisking in the next couple of days and so we have both cried, "let battle commence!"
Your humble Devil is looking forward to it...
