Treasury expose Lib Dem lies about 3m EU jobs

The Treasury have exposed the Lib Dems for lying about 3m jobs being lost if we leave the EU.

During the EU election campaign and the televised debates between Nick Clegg and Nigel Farage the Lib Dems repeated the lie that the latest Treasury analysis said that 3m jobs would be put at risk if we left the EU. The Treasury has now belatedly said that the analysis says no such thing and uses a 10 year old methodology.

UKIP's Deputy Leader, Paul Nuttall MEP, said:
There is no doubt that UK would continue to export to the EU after withdrawal from it and the alleged 3 million jobs loss bandied around by Europhiles such as the Lib Dems is nothing more than inaccurate scaremongering.

We live in a global market, and no one believes that if we left the EU companies like Renault would stop selling their cars here and sack the dealership staff, yet that is what Clegg's figures assume. Likewise, France's population aren't going to stop buying our goods and services.
Cleggy's told another porky!

Leicester UKIPper joins extremist Respect Party

The Secretary of UKIP's Leicester branch has resigned and joined the Respect Party, claiming it is because of a racist party member.

Ismail Patel, who joined UKIP a year ago, said that he received racist messages on Facebook from someone who he believed to be a UKIP member. He claims that the party didn't do anything about it so he joined Respect.

UKIP's national press officer, Gawain Towler, said that he had offered to go to Leicester so that Patel could show him the messages as he had blocked the sender and the party was unable to identify the sender. Patel left the party instead of co-operating.

Patel said that he bit his tongue about "a bit of petty racism" he encountered when he joined the party because he "agreed with a lot of the things UKIP stands for". One has to wonder what it was he agreed with having left a right of centre, eurosceptic, monocultural party for an extreme left wing, europhile, Islamic party. Anyone would think there was an alternative agenda at play here ...

UKIP New Forest East

With a heavy heart I pass on this sad news.

RIP Ron, you will be missed by a lot of people and be remembered for having a full life, being a stalwart and the guiding force of the New Forest East branch of UKIP.

Condolences to his family at such a sad time.

The following was sent to me from Peter Day:

Ronald James Smith was born in Aldershot on 30th March 1921.  His father was in the army stationed at Aldershot and was badly injured in WW1 losing the use of one of his arms.  After Ron’s early years in Gibraltar, the family returned to the UK, first to Belfast and then Farnborough.  During WW2, Ron was sent to the Duke of York Military School in Dover, and in 1945 he joined the Royal Engineers where he did an apprenticeship at the Army Technical School.  From there he became a regular soldier, but did a Chemical Engineering degree in his spare time.
After the Army, he was accepted as an Industrial Chemist for Research & Development at the National Gas Turbine Establishment in Farnborough.  From there he joined the Bahrain Petroleum Company (BAPCO) as an Instruments trainee, but by the time he left he was the Refinery Instruments Supervisor.
He returned to the UK and joined Lummas as a Process Engineer, and later shared the design of all the control systems for Total’s Immingham Refinery.  Later he joined Comsys Automation in Paris, but was sent back to the Middle East as a consultant, becoming the Chief Instrument Engineer for Aramco, when  he retired.
Ron became involved with UKIP prior to the 2005 General Election, when he became the agent for Peter Day in Southampton Test and Kim Rose in Southampton Itchen.  He later set up a UKIP branch in New Forest East (NFE), where he became the Chairman, and was also the agent for Peter Day in the 2010 General Election.
He remained Chairman of NFE until his deteriorating health forced him to pass the Chairmanship over to Phillip Fawkes.
Ron was a real stalwart for UKIP over the last 15 years running the Southampton branch when Colin Cain retired and then the NFE branch, where he organised speakers for open meetings, including a packed hall for Nigel Farage in Lyndhurst prior to the 2010 General Election.  He was also a tireless writer to Prime Minister David Cameron and local MP Julian Lewis, as well as the ‘Times’ and ‘Telegraph’.
He will be sadly missed by all who knew him in UKIP.

Powys councillor resigns over offensive comments in public meeting

Independent Powys County Councillor, Myfanwy Alexander, has resigned from her post as Deputy Leader of the council after using the word "nigger" in a public meeting.

Cllr Alexander was complaining to fellow councillors about apparently being told her name was a meaningless jumble of letters while she was partaking in some health tourism in England and said:
We are treated like niggers over the border. Our language and culture is trampled on and it’s a very sensitive issue. It’s not our fault that we don’t have a district general hospital to go to.
Cllr Alexander says that she wasn't being racist and isn't resigning as a councillor but has resigned from her cabinet post.

Ex-BNP, ex-English Democrat adult model joins Conservatives

Former BNP and English Democrats member and adult glamour model, Claudia Dalgleish, has joined the Conservatives and has even been pictured with Mark Reckless MP.

According to Trade Union anti-UKIP front, Hope not Hate, Dalgleish was romantically involved with BNP organiser and filth pedlar Steve Squire until she did the dirty on him with BNP officer turned English Democrat Eddy Butler. Squire released some mucky pictures of Dalgleish as revenge and Nick Griffin is supposed to have exposed himself to her in a curry house car park.

Looks like they'll let any old trash into the Conservatives.

Dalgleish with Nick Griffin and Clare Khaw, the extremist that even the BNP wouldn't tolerate

Guardian in positive UKIP story shocker!

Not only have the Guardian put UKIP on their front page today, they've actually refrained from outright hostility towards the party as well. I had to pinch myself to make sure I wasn't dreaming.

UKIP's youth wing, Young Independence, held its national conference in Birmingham on Saturday and the Guardian was there along with other more salubrious titles. The result is a reasonable article inside the paper and a picture on the front page.

Labour councillor suspended for swearing at whip

Brighton & Hove Labour Party have suspended Cllr Leigh Farrow and told him he isn't allowed to seek re-election.

Farrow successfully appealed against a decision not to allow him on the approved candidates list earlier this year but he is now in trouble for swearing at the Labour Party whip before a meeting while she was telling him how to vote.

UKIP is unique amongst mainstream parties in that it doesn't operate a whip and elected representatives are encouraged to do what they think is right, not what they're told to do.

Wirral Labour marking their own homework

The ruling Labour group on Wirral Borough Council has removed all non-Labour chairmen from its scrutiny committees.

The purpose of scrutiny committees is to review the actions of the ruling cabinet to ensure they are taken in the best interests of the local area and within the rules. The committees scrutinising the Labour cabinet will now be led by Labour councillors.

Lib Dem and Conservative councillors on Wirral Borough Council have criticised Labour for circumventing the system of checks of balances. The leader of the Labour group, Cllr Phil Davies, says that there is no legal requirement for opposition councillors to chair scrutiny committees so they're not chairing them.

Lib Dem councillor for Fareham lives in Saudi Arabia

The leader of the Lib Dems in Fareham, Cllr Paul Whittle, has been called on to resign after taking a job in Saudi Arabia a fortnight before the elections in May and failing to turn up for a Local Government Association conference after the council had spent nearly £600 on a ticket for him to attend.

Cllr Whittle has been defended by his fellow Lib Dem councillor, Katrina Trott, who says that it's just the Conservatives trying to cause trouble and Cllr Whittle can still do his £180k a year job whilst living and working in another country 4,000 miles and a 12 hour flight away. Whittle claims to have told the council before he took the job that he wouldn't be able to go to the conference but the council says that's not true.

Back in April last year the newly elected Lib Dem MP for Eastleigh, Mike Thornton, celebrated his narrow victory over UKIP by visiting Fareham to support Cllr Whittle and his Lib Dem colleague, Cllr David Norris, in their campaign to stop Hampshire County Council wasting money. At the time Cllr Whittle told local paper, the News:
In these tough times we know that every penny counts. We don’t need pet projects while our basic services are being lost. Hampshire County Council is out of touch and it is time they started listening to the people of Fareham.
Cllr Whittle doesn't need to count his pennies, the job he took in Saudi Arabia was advertised at £180k a year - considerably more than the £459 per week average wage in Hampshire. He accuses Hampshire County Council of being out of touch but at least they're in the same country, not 4,000 miles away.

UKIP Fareham Borough Councillor and Hampshire County Councillor, Chris Wood, said:
Someone working in Saudi Arabia will find it difficult to hold the Conservative administration to account.

British government appealing judge's decision not to deport pregnant Australian

Whilst unlimited numbers of people from the EU are allowed to live in the UK, the Home Office is spending our taxes appealing a judge's ruling that a pregnant Australian woman shouldn't be deported to Australia.

Katherine Tate is an Australian citizen married to a British citizen with two children who are British citizens and is 6 months pregnant with their third child who will also be a British citizen. Her husband, Dale, owns an electrical contracting firm and employs two electricians and two apprentices. The Home Office says that they didn't fill out the paperwork correctly to allow Katherine to live in the UK and gave her 10 days to leave the country. They appealed the decision and a judge at an immigration tribunal ruled that she could stay but the Home Office is appealing that decision through the courts and have even told the NHS not to provide her with healthcare unless she pays.

This is just one of the effects of the stupid immigration system we have where we turn away skilled workers and people who contribute positively to the economy and society to try and mitigate the damaging effects of open door immigration from the EU. The British government would rather have a thousand Romanian fruit pickers than a doctor from India, an engineer from Canada or the wife of a British citizen who doesn't claim benefits and whose husband owns his own company and provides employment for four people.

Why is the British government putting so much money and effort being put into trying to deport this woman whose only crime is to have filled out some paperwork incorrectly when they allow criminals, terrorists and hate preachers to live here because of their human rights? What about the human rights of this family which faces being torn apart because Katherine Tate isn't from an EU country? It's perverse.

Leicestershire Labour councillor paid £2,750 per meeting

A Labour councillor convicted of firearms offences earlier this year has been paid over £5,500 in allowances despite attending just 2 meetings this year out of an expected 14.

Leicester City Councillor, Robert Wann, told the Leicester Mercury "I have been to way more than that. I missed mayor-making but it's more than two". The minutes of the meetings he was supposed to have attended show that he was absent from all but two of them. He has been paid over £2,750 per meeting which is pretty good going when you consider that that's at least £1,000 per hour for the average council meeting.

Cllr Neil Clayton, the leader of the Labour group on Leicester City Council, said there was no point taking the whip off Cllr Wann because he has already said he's going to step down at next year's elections.

UKIP Councillor tells residents not to be hostile toward Muslim school

Cllr Paul Godier
A UKIP Councillor in Portsmouth has welcomed an open day being organised by a new Muslim school in the city and said that people shouldn't be hostile towards it.

Cllr Paul Godier said:
No-one has the right to be hostile. I think we need a bit more education about what is going to be put there and what will be on offer. What I see of it is that it’s a school, an educational establishment. There’s news all over the place that these type of schools are struggling, but that’s the same with any school now. If it’s offering something a bit more than we should be welcoming it, as long as it fits in with the community.
Last year saw protests by the EDL and a pig's head left on a spike outside the school's back gates. The school lists disgraced Lib Dem MP, Mike Hancock, as one of its patrons although they may have ditched him since he admitted having an "inappropriate and unprofessional" relationship with a mentally ill teenager.
