Farage Fingers Wrong Blonde

The Times have done over Nigel Farage this morning, reporting that £60,000 of taxpayer cash paid into his personal bank account is unaccounted for. The £15,500-a-year was for the upkeep of his constituency office in Bognor Regis, but since Farage gets it rent-free the accusation is that he only spends £3,000-a-year on running costs. Leaving around £12,000-a-year missing. No doubt it will turn out to be within the European parliament’s lax rules. It doesn’t smell right, even if the payments are automatic.

UKIP pre-empted the Times splash yesterday by naming the anonymous ex-party official who has grassed Farage up to the EU anti-fraud office as Jasna Badzak:

“Jasna Badzak is a convicted fraudster serving a suspended sentence, whose allegations are unfounded and vexatious. She has never been a press secretary or confidant of Mr Farage’s. Your use of her indicates that you are writing an article with a defined end by inventing a road to achieve that end.”

Just one problem: the Times tells Guido that Badzak was not the source of the story. This could get messy…

            On the Toady Programme this morning Farage gave Justin Time a good going over for not having his facts right.
            He explained the situation in a logical way and also that he is taking legal advice over the Times smears.
            Could prove messy if Farage has his facts right, and he should have as he has been at this game longer than his enemies.
            Lovely to hear someone take down the arrogant BBC presenters who believe they are the cream of the crop.

          On July 25th 1999, Meridian TV’s ‘Seven Days’ programme asked Farage about the Euro gravy train. Farage responded.

          “You will remember that right through (the 1999 Euro campaign) that we said we are not going on the gravy train; that we are the only people who are intending, annually, to publish so that the public can inspect them, our expense accounts, our allowance accounts, and the excess that we get – the excess that we are forced to take – particularly on travelling allowances, we are going to be putting into a trust fund and that money will be used to help victims of the European Union in our country, so I do reject the allegation that we’re on the gravy train and there’s certainly no chance of the three of us going native. ”

          The key point is that Farage has NEVER declared his expenses and allowances. NOT ONCE. He has also not set up any kind of trust fund for victims.

          It’s obvious to anyone that Farage is not in it for a few quid, there’s no way he’d botch the rules to use money for anything other than UKIP policies. The Establishment is crumbling fast and it’s a pure joy to behold

      From and including all the local elections since 6th March 2014 UKIP have contested no less than 25. Of which 19 were contested for their first time by UKIP. Over this period UKIP’s vote share ranged from 8.2% to 28.8%. The average percentage for UKIP over this period is no less than 19.32% and remember these are actual votes cast they are not subject to weightings or other analysis.
      No doubt about it UKIP will cost the Tories many seats in the GE and they are beginning to realise that fact.

      The polls however usualy put UKIP on around 11%, now however they are looking at nearer 20% so some drasic mud slinging is demanded. but we must not lose sight of this, remember the Wisteria !!!!!!

          Should not shoot the messenger – and in any case it is a good idea if UKIP gets his attention as it confirms that they are now a very credible force.

          Good test to see also if UKIP are more than just a cult of personality centered on F’arage: The responses seen thus far indicate that such an assertion is false.

          The EU in general needs a site like this to rip a new one on the fraud ongoing over there. The paradox of attacking Farage’s EU expenses is that this will serve to highlight that the EU is maybe worst than many realize for enabling what people in the UK consider fraud, and can only help to support the exit demand which UKIP sells.

          If only Cameron had not blown his cast iron credibility to pieces by repeatedly lying: Then he may have been able to get away with the referendum ‘promise’.

            Clegg and the LibDems are thoroughly discredited – as per the p’edo stuff and those debates.

            Conservatives are broadly discredited mainly due to Cameron’s explicit lying and the fact they are in receipt of R’ussian funding.

            Labour: Well Miliband has gone full retard twice in the space of a week. First at PMQ’s accusing Cameron of not answering a question that Cameron had just answered, and then stating in !srael that he wanted to be the first J UK PM.

            Even if it is true that UKIP have diddled £12k or so out of the foreigners in B’russels – that counts as a win for the UK.

            Now if UKIP repeated that with UK taxpayers money, as the likes of Miller and MacShane et al. have, then the swing against them would be without compromise.

    Where are Tony Blair's Expenses says:

    Another anti – Farage article. The establishment within the Village of Westminster where, sexual perversion, fraud and lying are normal behaviour are beginning to panic as the UKP bandwagon rolls on.

    When will the self serving idiots in the HoC realise that the man or woman in the street have had enough and want our country back.

    The latest scandal is the abuse of Sarah Wollaston because of her part in the Nigel Evans case. She is being vilified because she won’t play by the Westminster rules and has an independent mind as is a woman.

    Even though Evans was acquitted he did admit to groping a young man in the HoC bar and the Tory party at the time though this was ok. Try groping a woman in your local pub as see whether the Police think its ok or not. One rule for homosexuals and one for the rest of use – as David Laws

    Unusual volume of traffic for the time do day. They can’t all be teachers and none are lefties, curious. I of course could not possibly comment.

    Just wondering why All Pakistan Textile Mills Association would pay to fly a MEP business class and then pay for a nice stay in a top Hotel for four nights, so the MEP can pick up a “Honorary” Degree?

    Sounds very expensive.

    Too early to comment one way or another .

    If Farage only took money for incurred expenses and CAN PROVE he placed the balance “forced upon him ” by the free spending eurocrats to philanthropic/charitable use then he s in the clear .

    If not May could turn out very un-merry for UKIP.

    Mister F A Rage may rage at the eurocratic free spending tax free allowances, but like all MEPs he has in all probability joined in the free for all EU troughing.

Mycroft says:

Have you read the last bit of Animal Farm?

You know where the animals are looking through the Farmhouse window?

My TV screen was that window at lunch-time today.

Be careful, the sudden self-congratulatory tone, the slightly pudgy outline of indulgence and you become exactly what you should despise.

The jolly face of the Quisling Cameron poses for your camera has mesmerised and deceived you, you who were once not so deceived.

You were no firebrand, you were a damp squib in my opinion, sorry.

You need a damned good kick up the ahse!
