EXC: Farage Calls for Electoral Commission to Be Abolished

Speaking exclusively to Guido in the media scrum after his press conference, Nigel Farage has called for the Electoral Commission to be abolished for allowing the misleadingly named An Independence From Europe party onto the ballot papers. Farage accepted that the spoiler party cost UKIP an even greater win, the party is furious that Gawain Towler was denied a seat in the South West because of the vote being split by the other party’s “UK Independence Now” slogan. The UKIP leader tells Guido:

“The Electoral Commission was set up if you remember to stop things like the Literal Democrats from ever happening again. In their 13 years of existence, their only achievement that I can see is to have presided over a massive growth in postal voting fraud. They’ve hounded UKIP almost to the point of bankruptcy. We only survived 4-3 at the Supreme Court from going bankrupt. They now allow a party that put UK Independence Now on the ballot paper, that cost us a seat in the South West. Frankly they are not fit for purpose. I’d close the whole thing down and start again.”

Please credit quote to Guido Fawkes.

The Electoral Commission claimed the names of the two parties were sufficiently different. Which is laughable considering it impacted upon the final result…

    The only thing to add to this analysis is that it was the Electoral Commission in Wales that allowed a group of fascists to stand, using the name of Lee Rigby, without the consent of any of his family.

    They weren’t sufficiently different. The first point to make is that they were placed AT THE TOP of the ballot, with Ukip at the bottom. The second is I had to do a double/triple-take to make sure it was the right party. I would hope every voter takes as much care as I did, but unfortunately I don’t think they do.

    Farage is right – we have to do things differently. The catchy memes have to be got rid of too. I want to see the party name and the candidates – not their current buzz phrases as well, which only serves to present a massive wall of text that further confuses the issue.

    Have to say Nigel has a point.
    According to the Electoral commissions own guidelines they would refuse to register a party name if it
    “is similar to another registered party and is likely to confuse voters”.

    Looks like a cynical, institutional disregard to the rules and it would be interesting to see what party names they have disallowed in recent years.

The issue here is that Unlock Democracy has in effect been happy to use for its LibDem agenda the money from Moscow (at least £3million most likely more as it’s in London property).

    C O (Ξ7u1) says:

    Nigel does have a very valid point here.

    Electoral Commission would be a start: Several other ‘institutions’ also need similar treatment – for example: Environment Agency.

    The Electoral Commission has let itself down by not enforcing its own rules. Thankfully the effect has been minimal, but if it did cause even one seat to be lost that is one seat too many.

    Electoral fraud, which is really what is being spoken of here, is one of the more serious manifestations. The similarly named party, even though it may have been put together for good intentions, has misrepresented itself: Absent a national body to back it up, how could a small independent party like that hope to achieve what UKIP can ?

    There is of course the other darker side to this: That the party itself was in fact funded by UKIP’s peer competitors, or subversive elements within the c’ommission itself, whose intentions would constitute a serious tort against the electorate.

    A truly interesting result with UKIP topping the polls across the southern half of England, except in London and running Labour a close second in the north. That discontent with the EU and immigration is echoed across much of the EU says that things have gone too far.

    The reaction of the politicians shows that the lessons haven’t sunk in, particularly with Labour. They are simply ignoring the issues of the EU and immigration to repeat the mantra that it is just discontent with the economy. That isn’t the case in my experience the real issue is immigration and the constraints that EU impose on the government implementing any type of control.

    However, there is another side to this apart from bolting the stable door and once that is done, what to do about the mess in the stable? Labour and the LibDems deny the stable door even needs closing whilst the Tories propose fitting a wedge to stop the stable door opening too far. Westminster really is in denial about this issue and the sound-bites they are offering reek of desperation and lack any conviction or sincerity.

    Anonymous – this endless, pointless, vicious, badly-written drivel does you no favours. Get yourself to a psychiatric facility at once. I really do fear for your psychological well-being. We won’t miss you!

    ——-

    for a long time i tried to figure what lay at the edge of the universe and finally i have got it… it’s my skull. don’t fret dear sir humble horace i am going to end my own life in the early hours of wednesday, in a peaceful manner that harms no other. my reasoning is since all you horrific pig cnuts and every other fucker lay beyond the boundaries of my skull, if i end my own life this universe i am god of will implode and you will all get sucked into the resulting black hole.

    so see you on the other side, chum. and i hope the eye of ra slices you into tiny little pieces. to bomb your own country in an attempt to get back at some fuckers who caught you with your trousers down is high treason. the fact that you are being protected from facing justice, well it shows that there is no justice in the united kingdom.

    one of those long ago ships in the daylight passes of people trying to bring you to account once uttered in my direction that you were a monster… and they were right. from what i garner you fucked the 15 year black child then murdered them and their parents. but you wiped your splodge on the child’s underwear and that ended up in the hands of some people who thought they could make a few bob. course you set them all up right from the start.

    quite simply i say to the royal family that if you allow your senior plod to behave like this then no one will ever take you seriously. let me repeat that, a senior police officer engaging in child abuse and murder and also engaging in a terrorist act in his own country. your failure to act on this matter is a sign of complicity.

    but hey! i am just a mere schizoid and there is your plausible deniability!!! hell you will probably blame a bunch of shit on me once i am word food.

    fuck god save the queen. god save everyone.

    fuck long live our noble queen. long live our noble people.

    in the early hours of wednesday morning god will forsake you betty and your family of parasites and the multitude of leeches who suck all joy of life out of the masses to perpetuate their evil.

    ps

    nice dig that! have a pop at my writing style. and to talk about mental health. it is almost like you know just what to say to get a rise from me. gordon brown might be many things horace, but he ain’t a treacherous child abu5ing murdering cnut who bombed his own people due to a rabid hatred of catholics.

If democracy is not for all then it’s not democracy, given that we have (and always will have) an unequal society it is the duty of the state to ensure that the demcratic process which means above all elections should be clear, understandable and free of interference. There is no IQ test for voting and to suggest that one is needed really is a dreadful statement, our politicians don’t actually like democracy they hate the voice of the people and indeed fear it.

    Lets have a few facts
    1) The EU parliament will ignore ALL decent and carry on pushing their super state undemocratic agenda.
    2) There will be NO meaningful renegotiations without Cameron invoking Article 50 which is required by members who intend to leave the EU
    3) Therefore any attempt to renegotiate without Article 50 being invoked will be brushed aside.
    4) Cameron has already said that he will not leave the EU and will not invoke Article 50 therefore he will be either totally ignored of offered miniscule concessions which he will try to con the British public with as did Harold Wilson
    5) However we must not underestimate the vulnerability of Tory and Labour MPs whose careers could and may well come to an abrupt end at the next election as have the careers of many long standing MEPs this week.
    6) Faced with the prospect of unemployment there is a distinct possibility that some will change allegiance to UKIP
    7) Failing that happening the Tory party will split asunder. The Liberals are already at this stage.

    Axelload’s idea is to call for a ‘Million Mong March’. Inviting all weirdo’s to gather at the bottom of Primrose Hill and march to the top waving their rubric cubes and other geeky stuff in support of Ed Millimong.

    Ed’s all for it saying “It will show the people I get it, what ever it is they are saying”.

    I suppose traditionally under far right administrations electoral commissions are unnecessary.

    This from a chap called Peter Gold who was at the Minaret Hamlets “count”.
    I was, for obvious reasons, at both omni-shambles. We were asked to attend the Mile End Leisure centre at 2pm, Sunday for the council counts with the European count commencing at 4pm. We were let in at 3pm and then the chaos started.

    Any checks on people attending soon collapsed, particularly when the Supreme Ruler, Mayor Lutfur, was instructing his fan club from across London to walk in and enjoy the panto.

    However, ex Councillor Kabir Ahmed (Tower Hamlets First, Weavers ward) was barred from entering the count as he had revealed details of the first figures on his facebook page. Presumably he stayed at home in Gants Hill, Redbridge.

    There were arguments, threats, and chaos at the counting tables. Tower Hamlets First supporters were challenging vote after vote, forcing supporters of other candidates away from the tables. They often made their points ( excuse the pun) with pencils and pens, against ballot papers.The supreme ruler smiled, whilst checking town hall staff were not stopping his supporters from doing exactly what they wanted.

    Former Cllr Mohammed Shahid Ali (defeated Mile End) was bawling in Bangla down a mobile phone at a counting table. He was asked by a (female) officer to stop and he shouted that she ( emphasise she) had no right to tell him to stop doing anything and that she (emphasise she) should go away. I drew this to the attention of the returning officer and Shahid Ali then needed to be restrained from attacking me.

    Tower Hamlets has interesting rules on the media at counts. Mainstream journalists can only be on the counting floor if they are escorted by a member of the town hall staff at all times.

    The special media, that supports the supreme ruler, is excluded from this, so, for example everywhere I went I was stalked by a weird old trot who kept taking flash photographs of me in my face and then grinning. He declined to say what organ he reported for.

    He was not afraid of expressing his views as he shouted the short version of “see you next Tuesday”, during one of the declarations.

    Despite everything we had been told, the count was a shocker. There was a a 21% discrepancy in the votes in Island Gardens between the first two counts.

    Issues regarding our count process that I raised as far back as 2009 were ignored and there was no change at all; despite the fine words of the electoral commission.

    I will be writing to them on Tuesday, with more details and will make my letter public.

    I think the key point was that they had “UK Independence Now” printed under their name. For some people, in a rush, feeling under pressure – I know my grandmother feels like she is under pressure voting, knowing it’s important and worried about making a mistake, to allow them to put those words, especially “UK Independence” knowing full well that somewhere between 20 and 30% of voters were intending to vote “UK Independence Party” is something that just should not happen in a mature democracy, it sounds more like a rigged vote in a banana republic.

    I am sure someone tried once to run under the name M. Thatcher as a Conservationist and was not allowed. As Farage said would someone be allowed to set up “A Labour Party” to get to the top of the poll?

    Farage is right. This all smacks of dirty tricks, sort of thing you can imagine Dan Hodges type going in for after their smears failed so spectacularly.

    Good point – the numbers, absurdly high for a pretend party – show that the votes was cast by mistake, people wanting to vote Ukip.

    This is the sort of thing that needs correcting Asap. It’s a scandal it wasn’t sorted before the election and the man responsible must be sacked but also it’s important for justice to be done now, at least to make sure it doesn’t happen again. I wouldn’t think it outrageous if they repeated the poll just because of this – it really does amount to frad of 10s of thousands of Ukip votes that saved the bacon of the handful of Communist Greens and Lib Dems.

    If the Tories get fewer seats there is no way they could remain in power even with a coalition.

    The problem is Liebore would have to form a coalition with the Celt vermin meaning that the Celts would be passing laws that for the most part only effect England.

    So for example, we could see Liebore increase fuel duty in England or charges for using an NHS doctor whilst similar charges are not applied in the Celt areas of Britain.

    LibDems did abysmally..deservedly so. The penalty for traitors.6%

    The Greens did amazingly well..7% why that’s almost 1st. .really they should just be automatically made into a green-lab coalition in 2015.

    To be fair to Jimmy, I don’t think for a moment that he would have shot GDR escapees. But people just like him would have supported a regime like that without even properly realising what the logical consequences were. That is the deeper truth contained in your moniker.

    It is my belief that this is how the Berlin Wall fell. It became unsustainable, not in the minds of those who held the semi-automatic weapons, but in the population at large, even the informers.

    I post this having taken the three hours to travel through Checkpoint Charlie (east to west) some years before the wall fell. Some films glamorise the suspense. In reality it was tawdry (in the moral sense of that word) and sickening.

    [overheard in a TV centre]… I am so drained, just drained! We were tasked with brain-storming alternative names for that … that White English, bomber-man’s dog: hideously white…No, of course not the dog: that’s the trouble and this white Englishman – I forget his name, not that it’s of any importance, of course – had a dog, a lovely Labrador, no, not a Golden one, nor a Chocolate one. Of course the film (it’s so ancient!) is in B & W – not actually silent, you know! In fact it has this rather worryingly pompous background music: a bit God-save-the-Queeny, or Elgarish. Anyway, what we were to re-name the dog? His initials were ‘GG’… No, of course, not the dog’s, the man who loved him’s. So I ventured ‘Ginger’ – well, with such old films, who can tell? Justin shot me down in flames: how could we use a word that’s become a popular form of playground abuse? Well, I said, what about George? And then Tilda had a go at me: the trouble with the film was that it was chauvinistic anyway: why add even if subliminally, by giving the poor dog the name of England’s so-called Patron? I felt so crushed by all this attack, that I started to cry, and blurted out, ‘Well, he’s very dark, and he’s a he, and he’s a dog, and GG loves him, so why not settle for ‘Pussy’! Jak – you know, used to be Jacqueline, then was Jackie – was nearly at my throat!
    So, I’ve got myself signed off for a few days, well, weeks, actually.

    You can email them here to complain: PEFInbox@electoralcommission.org.uk

    I did earlier, got a response saying it wasn’t confusing, but have now followed up:

    Dear Ms Sarb,

    The Registration of Political Parties Act 1998, statutory ancestor of the Political Parties, Elections and Referendums Act 2000, was introduced specifically to deal with the problem posed by the “Literal Democrats” case. See e.g. Lords Hansard 21 Nov 2000 Column 665, where Lord Bach says “One of the purposes of the 1998 Act is to protect a party’s exclusive use of its name… in order to prevent voters being either confused or misled.”

    As you will note from the election result, “An Independence from Europe – UK Independence Now” (‘AIFE’) took 1.5% of the vote (at the time of writing) – more than the established party, Plaid Cymru; and vastly more than comparator party No2EU.

    Given the disparity between AIFE’s success and that of other small Eurosceptic parties such as No2EU, it would be deeply disingenuous of the Electoral Commission to suggest that confusion was not a factor in AIFE’s vote share. We know from the postal ballot that UKIP was contacted by supporters who had mistakenly voted for AIFE.

    It is deeply disconcerting that a body set up to promote democracy has had a hand in subverting it, by failing to fulfil its role of preventing confusion on ballot papers.

    The Commission’s opinion that a party at the top of many ballot papers with “UK Independence Now” in its description was not likely to confuse voters appears to have been both unreasonable and – although I cannot read your minds – possibly an abuse of discretion (see e.g. Wheeler v Leicester City Council).

    I am not satisfied with the way that the Commission dealt with this complaint.

    I would be grateful if you could let me know the next steps to take this complaint further.

    Yours sincerely,

    Prior to looking at my ballot paper in the booth I’d never heard of An Independence From Europe party. Where the fuck did they spring from? Who’s behind them? I see their name ensured that they were at the top of the list while UKIP was at the bottom. I woder how many people saw their name and assumed they were UKIP, casting their vote for the wrong party. Disgraceful. It should be investigated.

    The BBC did splendidly well, reporting the developments without fear nor favour, and in the very best spirits of the Reithian Ideal.

    YouGov pollling shows that 99.4% of the UK population believes that the BBC is fair and balanced and that the other 0.6% should be sectioned.

The TV appearances, the films, the books, the free entrances to Stringfellows (Upper St Martin’s Lane, London WC2H 9EF – Open today – 9:00 pm – 4:30 am) and the Edinburgh Festival.

    Nevertheless, it presides over:
    -the postal vote racket
    -unequal constituency sizes
    -shenanigans in the ballot stations worthy of Mugabe
    -the obviously deliberate confusion over party names to the detriment of one party( UKIP)
    – and all the while is very tardy over constituency changes with opaque procedures

    -time for the searchlight to shine on it and then kill it.

    “Despite last night’s successes for the UK Independence Party, a bad taste may stick in the mouth regarding an attempt to hijack UKIP voters by a disgruntled ex UKIP representative.
    Documents seen by Breitbart London reveal that upon discovering that Mike Nattrass had registered “An Independence” Party, claiming top slot on Thursday’s ballot papers, Nigel Farage’s UK Independence Party filed a complaint with the elections regulator in the UK, the Electoral Commission.”

    “I think they do not like confronting it because it involves a certain group of people.”

    Mr Rahman first came to power in 2010 after leaving the Labour Party. He became mayor alongside a cabinet of Independent councillors.

    Mr Gold said that there were “arguments, threats and chaos at the counting tables” this year, with supporters of Mr Rahman “challenging vote after vote”.

    And he said that mainstream journalists were only allowed on the counting floor if escorted by a member of staff – but the branch of the media supporting Mr Rahman was free to come and go.

    “This is not the first time this has happened – it happens over and over again,” he said.

    “I just despair over the whole thing. We have laws in this country that need to be enforced, but the police are too frightened to exercise their power.”

But the more you look at the data – the further you drill down into how people actually voted on Thursday – the more you can see that predictions that Ukip will fade away are a case of wishful thinking.

    God politics has been boring for so long now and now along comes Farage to wake everyone up and give the establishment a good shot across the bows, love it.
    How long have the miserable sods been promising jam tomorrow? Telling us all to work hard and when we retire there will be a nice rest and a chance to enjoy ourselves. Then they decided we had to work longer, in fact it would be good if we died at our desks. Then they said they couldn’t afford the NHS but continued to take the payments from our wages. They put people on the Liverpool pathway and left them to die sedated up to the eyeballs, hungry, thirsty and without pain relief.
    They manufactured a housing bubble to help their mates buy holiday homes which has put house prices even further out of reach of ordinary couples and they brought in lots of fit young Eastern Europeans and then dumped the old mugs who had worked for years for them just as they were getting older with health problems. They spent our money on wars and giving it to Europe and then told us they couldn’t afford the welfare state but still they continued to take our money in contributions. And they wonder why we are sick of the lot of them and in particular the Lib Dems who said they were different, cuddly and fluffy and instead they turned out just like all the rest.

    I am still waiting for an explanation why I have been denied a vote all these years. Still could not vote last Thursday.

    They just do not care. They are wrapped up in their procedures and guidance, to even look at a problem with corrupt and incompetent people. They are typical of the way the UK is run. Parliament makes Acts, and then they re-interpret the Acts as guidance for simple cases. No one ever looks at the Acts again, especially if it is found that their guidance is wrong or incomplete.

    Opposer of Unaccountable Quango's says:

    Dear Electoral Commission,

    Re: EU ELECTION 22 MAY 2014 – CONFUSING BALLET PAPER (SIMILAR NAMES)

    I was most alarmed to discover on my EU ballot paper that there was a very confusing, similar party name, to the one I wished to vote for listed, which I nearly inadvertently voted for.

    The similar party names were:

    UK Independence Party (UKIP)
    An Independence from Europe Party (UK Independence now).

    I personally saw through this confusion and I did vote for the party of my desire. However my partner has let me know she was subject to the same obvious similarity which resulted in her inadvertently voting for the wrong party.

    Could you please explain to me why you allowed this so similar name, to an established party, appear on the ballot paper?

    I do believe this obvious similarity could result in the distortion of the electorate intended vote.
    This would be such a travesty for our proud and ancient democracy that I spent 25 years military service defending and is, in my view, a serious dereliction of Electoral oversight.

    So much so, I wish to raise this with my Member of Parliament and would therefore please request you inform me of the full facts of how this similarity was allowed, particularly who made the decision.

    I am willing to deal with this matter by email.

    Yours sincerely,

    well i ain’t going to end my life at all “chum”. what i am going to do however is wipe you from this earth. what you have done to me, my family, to countless children and adults- if anyone wants to know what satan looks like all they need do is look at a picture of you.

    my grandfather was not just a freemason he was also a stonemason aka a keeper of the secrets that are kept from all those that are not true carvers. and it is readily apparent that i was “made”. it is ironic of the duplicity of the black and white checks of the board in that some freemasons are decent and others are monsters and you are one of the latter.

    no doubt you abide not to talk about certain things within the lodge, but out of the lodge you can talk and plot and action whatever you fucking want, and the fact you are top of the pig food chain gives you carte blanche. but there are decent freemasons and whilst i would not speak for them i can categorically state you are number one on my action list. to think i fell for all that friend shite when i asked you friend or foe. nice swerve by george robertson of momentum charity to implant the notion you were sir ian blair by the way. course “george” though was one of yours.

    i am going to destroy you personally, professionally and most importantly, physically. and anyone who has willfully conspired with you in the past, the present and in the future. that special masonic twinkle that resides within me is out for your head as well. this is not a matter that is going to end up in some super secret sanctioned court- you and your profane crew are now legitimate targets on account of me formally announcing war against you- both spiritual and temporal. you are now the prey “chum” and i am the predator. see how you enjoy it you disgusting subhuman scumbag.

    That until recently ballot papers were only permitted to show the name of a candidate and their political party in FPP elections and I seem to recall that at one time even the party affiliation was omitted; this pre-supposes that all voters are literate–something that we know is not true and must have been a little worse in 1918 when universal male suffrage was introduced.

    What the TV debate between Farage and Clegg proved was that the more the public find out about the EU the more they realise what a crock of shit it is. Sure it benefits the rich elite in London, but London is not Great Britain.

    The rising cost of living hurts the poor most and Labour are responsible for it. They were in government when the deepest recession in living memory occurred. They made austerity necessary in order to pay for their high public spending follies. They forced up energy bills with their green taxes. They imported millions of poor immigrants to undercut UK worker wages. So whenever Miliband bleats on about the cost of living crisis’, he should be constantly reminded of this.

    As most of them were “educated” under [victims of] the Shirley Williams “reforms”, they are probably illiterate and innumerate – so he is almost certainly correct. Just can’t get the staff these days…

    Even when they do, the wet wimpy lefty magistrates and their ilk always let the guilty ones off with a very very strict slap on the wrist. Can’t blame plod for declining to get involved when they are not supported by others above them who are too weak to do their jobs properly either.

    “Our history is one of waves of European migration. We’ve always resented European invasions though, but now we’re much more continental in our ways than we realise.” Geography is not really my strong suit, so could somebody please tell me when the Indian sub-continent became part of Europe?

    Word is the muzzy world could also do with a few to help balance numbers. Iran is the best place to start – but as they tend to hang folk from high cranes, better make sure your recruits/volunteers do not suffer from vertigo.

    According to that, the Greens gained two MEPs at UKIP’s expense. Interesting that lots of lefties on Twitter are accusing the BBC of bias because they don’t give the Greens enough coverage, and that UKIP’s success is due to BBC publicity for UKIP.

    Adding in the 235,124 votes to the spoiler party gives UKIP an 1.5% share of the vote, up to 29%.

    In return, EU calls for voting for representatives to follow referendums into the realm of redundancy?

    Wouldn’t a Commission with a collective IQ in triple figures at least have insisted on printing half the ballot papers in alphabetical order and the other half in reverse alphabetical order?

    “Nigel Farage has called for the Electoral Commission to be abolished for allowing the misleadingly named An Independence From Europe party onto the ballot papers.”

    It’s only misleading if you’re a functional illiterate.

    Reblogged this on Reblogged Blogs and commented:
    It was ridiculous for the Electoral Commission to allow the spoiler party, which did little or rather NO campaigning. Many people I’m told realised the mistake & crossed out the vote for the imposter party thus putting their X firmly next to UKIP !
    This resulted in many thousands of spoilt ballot papers! Maybe there should be an eraser on a piece of string to accompany the pencil so people can rectify any mistakes? Got to be better than the votes not even being counted!
    There must be a better way in the 21st Century to carry out a ballot? Answers on a postcard please …… Lol even on holidays you get a text or e-mail these days.

    Labour need a poor chunk of the population to justify their existence – they need a wealth gap to sustain their narrative. That is why Labour always keeps it’s voters in it’s “Labour heartlands” as poor as possible, so that it can blame the Tories for it and get reelected.

    Socialism is a peacock that devours wealth and shits poverty in its urban nests.

Dan Hodges on Labour unity

“We’ve heard a lot over the past few years about how Miliband has united Labour. But he has not united Labour. He has pacified Labour. He has placed it into a medically induced coma following the trauma of the party’s 2010 defeat.”
