Former UKIP MEP trying to trick voters into backing protest party

Former UKIP MEP Mike Nattrass, who left the party in a huff after being deselected last year, has registered his An Independence Party vanity project's slogan for ballot papers as "UK Independence Now".

The party name is very similar to UK Independence Party and clearly intended to trick voters into thinking they're voting for UKIP. Add in the "UK Independence Now" slogan and it's obvious that Nattrass intends to confuse voters.

An Independence Party has managed to stand a full slate of candidates in England which is quite an achievement for a single issue protest party although it's mostly been achieved with family members, disgruntled ex-UKIPpers and by parachuting candidates in from the West Midlands. Every AIP candidate for Yorkshire & Humber, for instance, lives in Coventry or Solihull. Interestingly, Chris Pain who only a few months ago was appealing against a decision to expel him from UKIP is lead candidate for the East of England with his wife - whose name inadvertently appeared as the author in the properties of a supposedly anonymous Word document distributed to  UKIP members inciting rebellion over the MEP selection process - is in second place. How many deposits Nattrass has had to pay to get a full slate of candidates who have no realistic hope of winning is something we'll have to wait to find out when their election expenses statements are filed.

UKIP has yet to make a formal complaint but the party chairman met with the Electoral Commission yesterday and a spokesman has said that the party will fight it all the way and seek judicial review if necessary.

Public back UKIP election posters

Full Fact verify UKIP poster facts

The Full Fact website have fact checked UKIP's EU election posters and have confirmed that three of the four posters are correct but can't confirm the fourth.

Full Fact agreed that research shows that EU immigration affects jobs and wages, they couldn't find a definitive answer on the percentage of laws that originate from the EU and they agreed that we give the EU £55m per day.

The Tories have fared rather less well with their EU election broadcast with Full Fact picking holes in half of what they say.

Happy St George's Day!

We would like to wish all our readers a Happy (if slightly damp) St George's Day.



Those of you wanting to do a bit more than drink a pint or six of real ale to mark St George's Day can fill in the form below and help get a fair deal for England (this isn't a UKIP initiative).



Malicious Letter Sent To Some UKIP Members

A letter has been sent to some UKIP members from an anonymous person in Birmingham, making false statements about the party being in financial difficulty and claiming that members will be personally liable for any of the party's debts.

The party clearly isn't in financial difficulties (the party finances are published on the Electoral Commission website) and even if it were, it is a limited company so the members aren't liable for any of the party's debts. The billboards that are going up around the country for this election were paid for by a £1.5m donation from Paul Sykes, Alan Bown has given millions to the party, Stuart Wheeler has given a substantial amount personally and brought in many more donors. The party's financial future has never looked so good.

The author of the letter has committed fraud which is serious enough at any time but because the letter is trying to unduly influence voters not to vote UKIP with the threat that the party is on the verge of bankruptcy and they will be liable for the party's debts, it is a corrupt practice under the Representation of the People Act 1983. Where a corrupt practice has been carried out by an agent of a candidate but not the candidate themselves, the candidate can be found guilty by his agents. The author of the letter and the person they are acting on behalf of face an unlimited fine and up to 2 years in prison. This is a serious offence.

The party has issued the following statement to members:
Some members have received a letter in the last 24 hours, postmarked Birmingham, and purporting to be from "UKIP Loyalist". It's anonymous, of course, because these people are not very brave. It raises the fear that the sky is about to fall in on UKIP and that our members will all be personally liable for sizeable sums and should resign immediately – though it also says that ex-members are at risk, so that rather shoots a hole in their logic.

The important thing about this letter is that it is a cruel and malicious smear.

To prove it, the central pillar of their argument is wrong: we are not an "Unincorporated Association" whose members are liable for its debts. We are a company limited by guarantee, meaning if UKIP was ever bankrupted the 13 people who form the NEC would lose £1 each. Having started badly, the letter goes rapidly downhill, raising people's fears about non-existent crisis meetings and making allegations.

If you receive this letter, please put it with its envelope in a plastic bag (so that it can be fingerprinted by the police) and send it to your regional organiser. If you don't know who your regional organiser is, contact your branch Chairman or Secretary who will have their details.

It is exactly because UKIP is at its highest ever level in politics that we see such underhand tactics, something we have grown to expect. However, each smear story actually increases our support and we are looking forward to a huge result in the forthcoming elections.

So thank you once again for supporting UKIP and as we bring about the change sought by so many across our nation.

The Spoof of #UKIP That Backfired. "Migrants create our jobs" (oops no, most don't).

I love it when people do try to present the case *for* the EU. They deliver all the data required to rip their case to shreds...

UKIP have a new poster campaign out - the usual anti-UKIP suspects have repeated their usual old, stale, incorrect, anti-UKIP creed.

However one thing did draw my attention...
UKIP Poster:
Spoof:

Apparently the figures for this came from here:-
http://www.creatingourjobs.org/

Strapline:

Ok.. tell me more.

The Facts:

Ok... so UK has around 7.5million migrants (http://www.express.co.uk/news/uk/364176/7-5-million-migrants-live-in-Britain) and half a million have created a total of 1.16 million jobs... so that around 6 million who are taking (or trying to take) jobs that were already here...

Case Studies:
Ok... so three Indians and a Californian... hang on what has this to do with the EU? These people aren't European! Actually... there is an EU connection - because UK *cannot* control EU migration, UK is having to restrict migration from these countries! The ones where so many of the 'contributing' migrants have come from!

I love it when people do try to present the case *for* the EU. They deliver all the data required to rip their case to shreds...

I also note that (on average) this half a million migrants have only created an average of two jobs - enough for themselves and a partner but no one else. I wonder how many of these micro businesses are like this one:-

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2532002/Big-Issue-seller-called-benefits-teacher-urging-families-follow-Britain.html

Making £100 a week selling The Big Issue and claiming £28,000 from UK taxpayers in benefits - yes she is very industrious, and doing well for herself (and those other Eastern Europeans she is training to emulate her) - but at a huge *cost* to the rest of the UK...

But remember - UKIP don't want to close UK borders - that is a LibLabCon straw man! - UKIP just want to control it! Let in the beneficial migrants!! Keep out the bad ones.

Labour official admits electoral fraud in leaked email

A Labour Party branch secretary has admitted to "helping" people fill out postal votes in Bethnal Green and encouraged others to do so in a leaked email.

Anisur Rahman, who is secretary of Bethnal Green South Labour Party, send the email to Labour PPC for Bethnal Green & Bow, Rushanara Ali and numerous activists and councillors telling them that he had helped voters fill out their ballot papers even though he knew it was wrong and encouraging them to follow his lead.
I helped and I also visited few house to do it. I know it is a secret matter but if someone request, as a comrade we need to help for the benefit of the party.

So I am requesting all ward coordinators, cllr's, branch secretaries to do such work in their own ward now.
The postal voting system is rife with fraud with ballot stuffing factories at home and abroad helping to rig elections almost exclusively for the Labour Party. There won't be many UKIP branches that don't have stories of electoral fraud ("helping" people in care homes fill out their ballot papers seems to be a favourite) but the sticking point is always the lack of hard evidence to force the police to investigate.

UKIP policy is to return to the old system where postal voting is reserved for those who are unable to get to the polling station because of problems with their health or because they are out of the area on election day. Postal voting should only be allowed in exceptional circumstances, it should not be an automatic right. Voter participation hasn't risen because of the liberalisation of postal voting but electoral fraud has increased significantly and we can hardly pontificate as a nation on rigged ballots and abuse of the democratic process abroad when it is so prevalent here.

EU election campaign billboards unveiled

UKIP's EU election campaign has stepped up a gear today with the unveiling of a nationwide billboard campaign.

One of the billboards (which have been paid for by self-made millionaire businessman Paul Sykes) has already sparked controversy amongst the loony left. No prizes for guessing which one ...

Most Mirror readers want Nigel Farage as Prime Minister

The Mirror ran one of their usual articles slagging off Nigel Farage and UKIP following an appearance on Have I Got News For You but got more than they bargained for when they attached a poll to the article asking readers who they would rather have as the next Prime Minister.


Even the readership of the Labour-supporting Mirror want Nigel Farage running the country, with only 15% wanting Ed Miliband, 6% wanting David Cameron and a measly 1% for Nick Clegg. As many people (21%) wanted someone else as Ed Miliband and David Cameron combined.

British government censors Brexit essay author

The prize-winning author of an essay on the UK's exit from the EU has been censored by the British government.

Iain Mansfield works as Director of Trade & Investment at the British embassy in Manilla wrote the essay - which says that the UK economy will be £1.3bn better off outside the EU - for an IEA competition that was looking for the best analysis of a post-EU UK to inform the debate on our membership. Mansfield won the €100k prize but was banned from conducting any interviews and ordered to take down his blog on economic affairs, even though he had obtained permission for both.

The LabLabCon rely on misinformation and scare tactics to convince people that we have to stay in the EU. They claim that 3m jobs will be lose if we leave the EU even though the research they quote said 3m jobs were linked to free trade with the EU, not membership of the EU. They claim that without unlimited EU immigration we would run out of doctors and nurses and people to do menial jobs even though we have over 3 and a half million unemployed people already living here. They claim that the EU is responsible for half a century of peace in Europe despite there being a constant stream of conflicts, civil wars, invasions and even genocide throughout the EU's entire existence.

Mansfield has been "locked down" because the europhile British establishment is scared of people getting the facts and undermining the cosy conspiracy of misinformation and complicity that prevails in the three old parties and throughout the civil service.

Tory councillor: When rape is inevitable, lie back and enjoy it

A Tory councillor on Cheltenham Borough Council has compared developers dictating how much affordable housing they're willing to build to being raped.

In a debate about plans to build 30k houses in Gloucestershire, 77 year old Cllr Barbara Driver said "There is a saying and I am going to say it: When rape is inevitable, lie back and enjoy it".

Three official complaints have been made about Cllr Driver and the council have launched an official investigation. Cllr Driver has apologised but refuses to resign.

NUS vote to run political campaign against UKIP

The National Union of Students has voted to openly oppose UKIP at its conference.

Jack Duffin, the Chairman of UKIP's youth wing, Young Independence, says he is disappointed because it will alienate the students who are involved with UKIP and call it "bizarre, pathetic posturing". He's not wrong but the NUS is worse than bizarre and pathetic, it is an out-of-touch breeding ground for left wing extremists and Labour politicians.

In February the Telegraph took the NUS to task, describing them as "loony anarchists". The president of the NUS hasn't even been to university and some of the officers aren't even students. The NUS is seen as a stepping stone to becoming a Labour MP and those who cheered the news of Margaret Thatcher's death at their last conference are the ones who will no doubt rise through the ranks quickest.

Like all socialist organisations the NUS doesn't represent its members, it is a platform for left wing extremists that allows Labour to conduct arms-length campaigns of intimidation, violence and vandalism masquerading as grassroots protests.

Three defections to UKIP in Havering

The Conservative Mayor of Havering has defected to UKIP, losing overall control of the council for the Conservative Party.

Cllr Eric Munday is joined by two other former Mayors, Cllrs Lynden Thorpe and Peter Gardner, who recently left Havering Conservatives for UKIP and have been sitting as independents. This makes UKIP the third largest group on the council with 7 members, ahead of Labour and behind the ruling Conservatives and Residents' Group.
