Putting the Queen in a council house, legalising terrorism and abolishing the army - the delusional and dangerous Green manifesto

The leader of the Green Party, Natalie Bennett, says that if her party was in government they would abolish the monarchy and move the Queen into a council house.

The Australian republican leader of the Greens, who has never won an election, goes on to say that they would embark on a programme of wealth redistribution and want to "restructure society". Bennett says that they will force companies like Amazon to pay more tax even though they are absolutely committed to staying in the EU who made the laws that the likes of Amazon use to avoid paying tax. Bennett has also said that they would decriminalise membership of terrorist organisations, the number of prison sentences given out would be "significantly reduced" and the armed forces will be disbanded and their bases turned into nature reserves.

This is why it's a good thing that the Greens are going to be on the televised debates in the run up to the election because as soon as you scratch away at the environmentalist surface, you uncover a manifesto that is as insane as something the Monster Raving Loony Party would come up with. It's funny when the Loony's do it though because they don't expect it to be taken seriously and don't fool voters into thinking they're not a bunch of schizophrenic, far left control freaks.

The Greens aren't just deluded, they're dangerous.

Amjad Bashir MEP defects back to the Tories

Yorkshire & Humber MEP, Amjad Bashir, has resigned from UKIP and gone back to the Conservatives after being suspended over serious concerns about alleged financial and employment law offences.

David Cameron has said that he is "delighted" to welcome Bashir to the party but he might not be delighted for much longer if the allegations against him are true. The party have forwarded evidence from its investigation into Bashir to the police, It is unknown whether the alleged employment law offences relate to the immigration raid on one of his restaurants in 2013 which resulted in the arrest of 7 people.

Bashir isn't expected to honour the pledge he signed before the election to resign as an MEP if he resigned from the party.

Here are some of Bashir's recent comments about his new boss:
The public is angry with his party’s commitment to give 0.7% of our gross national income in foreign aid but Cameron stubbornly won’t back down on it, unusually for a man who has happily reneged on pledges on other issues.
David Cameron set the target to show the Conservatives are not the ‘nasty party’ but instead it shows they are the short sighted party.
David Cameron’s plans for countering British jihadis are like shutting the stable door after the horse has bolted.
David Cameron has thrown a number of options into the air in a desperate bid to save his own skin but like so many spinning plates they will all come crashing to the ground in pieces.

David Cameron still bottling out of TV debates

David Cameron has told the BBC, Sky, Channel 4 and ITV that he won't be "bounced" into televised election debates by them agreeing to do what he said they had to do for him to appear in the televised election debates.

Cameron bottled out of going head to head with Nigel Farage live on TV using the excuse that the Greens weren't invited to take part. He said if one minor party was invited then all the minor parties should be invited to take part. He specifically named the Lib Dems and UKIP as minor parties despite OFCOM ruling that both are major parties and should have the same amount of regulated media time as the Tories and Labour.

The four broadcasters responsible for the televised debates have announced changes to the format of the debates to accommodate David Cameron's diva demands and have invited the SNP, Plaid Cymru and Green Party to the first two debates with a third one reserved just for him and David Miliband's brother. But despite caving in to demands, Yellow Dave is still trying to bottle out of the debates.

If Yellow Dave doesn't turn up, the broadcaster have said they will replace him with an empty chair.

Lib Dem councillor defects to UKIP

Earlier this week we reported that Shepshed Lib Dem town councillor, Diane Horn, had defected to UKIP. She has now spoken to the press to explain her reasons.

Cllr Horn said she was "no longer sure what the Lib Dems represent" and said had become so disillusioned with the party she had lost all her energy. Her disappointment with the party she had represented for the last 8 and a half years is obvious in her comments to the Loughborough Echo.
Many moons ago Britain managed on its own without the EU and they want to make sure the people of England are put first. I did think about standing down altogether but when I got speaking to UKIP, I thought "why waste the nine and a half years you have put into this."

I was tired and had lost all my energy and was frustrated by what was going on and it has given me a new lease of life.
Cllr Horn will be standing for UKIP in the upcoming elections in May.

UKIP MPs cast deciding votes on bill to outlaw wind turbine subsidies

UKIP's two MPs cast the deciding votes in a 10 minute rule bill yesterday to outlaw state subsidies for wind turbines.

Had it not been for Douglas Carswell and Mark Reckless, the bill would have been rejected and an opportunity to stop the wasteful subsidy of windmills for rich landowners and big multi-national corporations would have been missed. The bill passed by 59 votes to 57.

10 minute rule bills are heard after PMQs when most MPs are in the Commons but only 116 MPs remained. Mark Reckless had to try 5 times yesterday during PMQs to ask David Cameron why he wouldn't take part in TV debates because MPs were noisily groaning to drown him out. It would appear that MPs are worried about UKIP upsetting their cosy consensus and this is their childish response.

Daily Mirror ramps up its smearfest against UKIP

In the Mirror today a poor and shoddy journalist by the name of Jack Blanchard has run a story entitled:

Nigel Farage admits Ukip is NOT a credible party and has not been honest with voters

In this article, he is claiming he h
as got hold of leaked minutes which state Nigel is in a panic and other manure of that nature.

Here is a couple of excerpts:

He told UKIP chums the party had a “problem” due to a raft of unaffordable pledges including tax cuts, and extra cash for police.
“We are not passing the credibility test as a party,” said Mr Farage, who has repeatedly claimed UKIP is always honest with voters.
UKIP deputy chairman Neil Hamilton – the disgraced ex-Tory MP – warned colleagues:
“This is the last time we can get away with this.
 "We can say anything on the doorstep. “But on television we will have some pretty searching questions to answer.”

 At the meeting, in April 2013, a panicking Mr Farage agreed voters are starting to see through UKIP’s endless unfunded promises.

Then went on to state:

The minutes state: “NF (Nigel Farage) thinks we cannot talk about council tax cuts and spending more on policing etc all at the same time.
“We are setting ourselves up for a fall.
“His problem is that we are promising the earth to everybody.”
The minutes go on: “NF feels we are not passing the credibility test as a party."
UKIP claimed it had “taken on board” Mr Farage’s warnings and changed its ways.
Labour MP Sarah Champion said the damaging leak lays bare the truth behind UKIP’s public charade.
“This is absolutely typical of UKIP politicians who say one thing on the telly but have entirely different views in private,” she blasted.

Well, I am so sorry to have to tell you Labour/Lib/Con/Green types 

UKIP and Nigel Farage publicly disowned that manifesto from 2010 last year (20140 claiming it was rubbish and not fit for purpose.

Whoever is your supposed leak needs to get a life and stop with the sour grapes after being either expelled or deselected for not passing the stringent tests our candidates have to take to stand for UKIP

Another poor journalistic piece from a Left-leaning rag whose poor and shoddy journalists are digging through piles of manure and bull faeces for any story they can use to TRY and smear UKIP.

Sorry chaps, it is not working.

Carswell dismisses rift rumours as "mischief making"

Douglas Carswell has told the media to stop "mischief making" about his relationship with Nigel Farage.

Rumours were circulating yesterday (almost certainly from the anti-UKIP "research" team in CCHQ who have been running the dirty campaign against UKIP since 2013) that there is a rift between Douglas Carswell and Nigel Farage. The rumours were dismissed yesterday by Farage and then again last night by Carswell. Even their families have been spending time together apparently.

We can expect more of this sort of thing as the election gets closer and the Tories and Labour become increasingly desperate.

Daily Express: 80% want to quit the EU

Labour mayor of Bishop Auckland defects to UKIP

The Labour mayor of Bishop Auckland has defected to UKIP.

Cllr Colin Race announced his defection at a meeting of Bishop Auckland Town Council today and heaped criticism on his former colleagues in the Labour Party.
Year-on-year it has become increasingly clear that Labour are neglecting voters and taking us all for granted.

The Labour Party that I once knew – the party that stuck up for the working families, is no more. We have a cosy consensus of politicians in Westminster who spend more time patting each other on the back, than representing the people who pay their wages at the end of the month.

Here in the North East we have the highest rates of unemployment in the country, how are my kids meant to get a job when our political class support open door mass immigration from 27 other EU member states?

Corby Conservatives expel councillor for defying London

Corby Conservatives have expelled one of their councillors from the Conservative group on the borough council for defying an order from London to vote against fire service cuts.

Cllr Stan Heggs chose to vote in favour of replacing a fire engine with a smaller Cobra appliance when he had been instructed to vote against it. The Conservatives - like Labour and the Lib Dems - have a whipping system that means even town and parish councillors are told how to vote by their party's head office in London and by the whips in their own constituency association. Cllr Heggs has defied orders to vote against any perceived cuts in emergency services after being forced to sign a "blue light promise" along with every other Conservative who wants to stand for election anywhere in the country.

UKIP has no whipping system and all elected UKIP representatives at any level are encouraged to vote according to their conscience and what is right for the people they represent rather than what the party thinks they should do.

Guardian validates UKIP's concerns over immigrant benefits

The Guardian have helpfully verified that the UK is keeping far more than our fair share of people on benefits.

Research by the Guardian has found that 29k UK nationals are claiming unemployment benefits in other EU countries but almost 69k EU immigrants are claiming unemployment benefits here. The Guardian have tried to spin the statistics to support unlimited immigration by cherry picking the facts they want readers to pay attention to and ignoring the inconvenient truths.

According to the Guardian's figures, there are 29,095 UK nationals claiming unemployment benefits in other EU member states. That's an average of 1.078 unemployment benefit claimants for each of the other 27 EU member states. At the same time, there were 64,830 EU immigrants claiming unemployment benefits in the UK. That's 6000% more unemployment benefit claimants from the EU claiming in the UK than unemployment benefit claimants from the UK claiming in the EU. There are more people from Portugal and Poland claiming unemployment benefits in the UK than there are people from the UK claiming unemployment benefits in Austria, Belgium, Bulgaria, Croatia, Cyprus, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Ireland, Italy, Latvia, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Malta, Netherlands, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain and Sweden combined.

Of course, unemployment benefits are just a small part of the problem. There are no statistics on people claiming child benefits and tax credits but we know that £600k a week is being paid out in child benefit to people living in other EU member states with three quarters of that going to people living in Poland. There are also no statistics on how many people who already live in the UK are claiming unemployment benefits because they can't find a job because most new jobs go to newly arrived immigrants.

Uncontrolled immigration from the EU has been bad for the economy and bad for society. There have apparently been 2m private sector jobs created in the last 4 years. A lot of those are part time jobs but it's still hundreds of thousands of full time equivalent jobs. There are 1.9m unemployed people living in the UK and there shouldn't be. Jobs are being created but most of them aren't taken by unemployed people already living here, they're being taken by newly arrived immigrants. The more people there are on benefits, the higher taxes need to be to pay for them and the less money people have to spend stimulating the economy and creating more jobs.

Brighton Greens trying to depose leader

The end of Brighton & Hove Green Party's brief but disastrous reign in the twin city is being marked by a coup against leader, Jason Kitcat.

Several Green councillors have stood down in the face of electoral oblivion in May, including their leader. The Spectator subsequently described Brighton as "an object lesson in why it is a disaster to vote Green".

The local weirdy beardies got together for a glass or two of Victory Gin and urged their leader to take a break and hand over the reins to someone who "has a stake in the election".

Spelthorne Borough Council vote to keep councillor who lives in India

Spelthorne Borough Council have voted to allow a Conservative councillor to keep his seat even though he has lived in India for the last 6 months.

Cllr Dipak Gohil hasn't attended a council meeting for 6 months and should have been removed as a councillor under the Local Government Act but the council voted to grant him a leave of absence which allows him to keep his seat. His Tory colleagues said that he can be contacted by phone, fax and email in India so residents are still getting adequate representation.

Last month the Conservative leader of Spelthorne Borough Council hit the headlines after he was challenged by the father of a boy killed during the 2013 floods for laughing whilst he was addressing the council about his son's death. In July last year another Conservative Spelthorne councillor was convicted of five counts of assaulting his ex-girlfriend.

Spelthorne Conservatives have a serious credibility problem at the moment and voting to keep one of their councillors on the payroll when he's living 5,000 miles away isn't going to do them any favours.

Two councillors resign over filming of council meetings

Two Stapleford town councillors have resigned from the council after a residents group started filming their council meetings.

Cllrs Caroline Bartliff and Mark Elvin both said they had no option to resign because of the filming but don't appear to have explained what the impact on their lives that the filming causes actually is. They haven't attended council meetings for six months since the filming started and have left it too late to resign for a by-election to be called as fresh elections will be held in May. Presumably they continued to claim their allowances whilst taking this stand against democracy,

Council meetings are public meetings and anyone is entitled to attend. Prior to a legislation change last year, councils were allowed to refuse permission to record meetings but they are no longer allowed to ban recording of council meetings. The rules allowing members of the public and press to be excluded from a meeting where confidential matters are being discussed remain in place do there are no privacy issues.

There is no reasonable argument against the filming of a council meeting. Residents can attend council meetings and filming them just means they are accessible to more residents than those that are able to get to the meeting when it happens.

Inverness councillor makes anti-Jewish comments in council meeting

An independent Inverness councillor has been called on to resign after making inappropriate comments against Jews in a debate about a Tesco store closing in Holm.

During the council meeting Cllr Norrie Donald said:
I’ve heard Tesco is owned by a Jewish family who live in the lap of luxury in Switzerland.

I’m not concerned about Tesco closing down in the slightest. I’d be quite happy to see stores close down all over the country.
When he was challenged by the Inverness Courier he made further inappropriate comments about Jews and said that they were off the record because he didn't want to come across as anti-Jewish.
