How to Do Politics

About a year ago John West's UKIP media test interview was posted on YouTube with the derogatory title "How not to do Politics". No one ever owned up to putting this supposedly confidential interview on a public web site for all to see. Ms Fuller had a copy of the interview on her laptop which she claims was left in the back of a taxi and returned to her anonymously a few days later. A trip to Morocco also figured in this tale somewhere. I was on the NEC when the matter came up and the then chairman John Whittaker closed down any possibly further investigation saying "I am not inclined to take the matter further"

Today I read in my Daily Telegraph, top of page 2, the banner headline "BNP to siphon off EU expenses". The initial paragraph states "The BNP intend to funnel tens of thousands of taxpayers money to its chosen causes to drum up support in the run-up to the general election." Reading on one finds this statement is more than a little misleading. It seems that the two BNP MEPs have agreed to give 10% of their annual £80000 pa salary plus their unused accommodation and travel allowances to a "community chest" to support "worthwhile local projects" like St George's Day celebrations.

This is brilliant as next year's St George's day is very likely to fall in the middle of the UK General Election campaign. Even better, the EU will try to block Griffin and Brons from using their allowances in this way! Its against the rules says the EU. This is a godsend to the BNP. Corrupt MPs obey rules to feather their nest, OK. BNP MEPs breaking the rules to promote local projects, not OK. Put it alongside the unelected Glennys Kinnock and the EU establishment discriminating against BNP democratically elected MEPs and the BNP will emerge as persecuted by the EU and will therefore garner much of the anti-EU vote and what is left of the MP expenses protest vote in the 2010 General Election.

In any free society Griffin and Brons can spend their salary how they like. Some MEPs choose to spend it in the bars, restaurants, gay bars and bordellos of Brussels and Strasbourg! When I stood as a UKIP MEP candidate I stated at all the hustings that I would give all my EU salary to UKIP, something which did not endear me to the UKIP party apparatchiks. I put this on my election website: www.ericedmond.com where it still is and can be checked by anyone interested. At one husting I remember describing EU money as 'dirty money' that I personally would not touch. I am sure these sentiments played a big part in my expulsion from the UKIP NEC and my deselection from my democratically elected position on the South West MEP candidate list!

If Farage's UKIP have any real intent to get us out of the EU then they better start fighting the battle on the right ground, the UK, this many sceptred isle, and not waste their time in Brussels and Strasbourg.

If UKIP don't the BNP will clearly move into the UK vacuum left by UKIP's obsession with EU money and its pointless, powerless talking shop, the EU assembly.

UKIP MEPs are far too greedy to EVEN think about donating part of their salary to good causes in this country.

Farage and his sycophants are now part of the EU establishment. Their sole aim is to stay on the EU Gravy Train and enlarge their bank balances at the expense of the British taxpayer. End of story!

There is no doubt that The BNP is a vile organisation founded on the gratuitous slaughter of 4-5,000 mostly young black men, for entertainment.

Killings they refuse to repudiate.

Similarly there is no doubt that EUkip are aiding the EU by accepting, indeed avidly negotiating, for the bribes available and in return cobbling together some of the most vile people in Politics known in EUrope in the last 60 years, with racists, xenophobes and the most vile of sexually intollerant filth available - close enough in outlook and temprament to EUkip to form a pan EU Political Party/Group it seems.

There is no doubt that Annabell Fuller posted the video which was entrusted to her in a vile act of internet bullying and abuse of trust and data protection, so typical of EUkip and its supporters like Croucher, Feel Martinis, Denny and the other pond life attracted by the party.

There is no doubt that John Wittaker resigned as Chairman with one final betrayal of such morality he may have had in pretending he had acted regarding the odious Fuller.

There is no doubt that some who had been out manoevered by EUkip's untrustworthy leadership emmulated their style and whilst still members of EUkip (just in case they might get office) joined together to form an equally vile little group called UKFirstParty.

Even now this unpleasant & dishonourable bunch are energetically betraying and back stabbing to satiate their very personal ambitions as shown at:
http://UKFirstParty.blogspot.com

One is hardly surprised that The Popular Alliance has distanced themselves from the revolting rump left of UKFirstParty who have strived to behave even worse than EUkip in so many ways.

To date Farage has not called a meeting of non members of old in secret to betray his entire NEC - perhaps the flow of learning will reverse!

Like EUkip it is noted that there are virtually no individuals of any political competence and deffinitely none of any integrity at the top of either sordid party!

The speed with which ethics fly out of the window when political ambition is to hand and the willingness of otherwise relatively normal people to betray and cheat beggars belief.

One only need look at the underhand and duplicitous way people like Martin Haslam, Bruce Lawson, Peter Cole and their ilk have behaved as have the politically stupid who have dishonestly tried to ride two horses.

The only people who come out of this sordid debacle with ANY credit are Petrina Holdsworth, John West & Drew Belobaba and ditherring along behind John Petley whilst all others in UKFP have copied the corrupt lack of morality and principles of EUkip's leadership.

One must feel sorry for Robin Page as he rather naiively tries to smooth out the residual mix to make a wedding cake of sour dough and floor sweepings!

It is all too likely he will with good intent serve a mix that will do no more than poison the guests for as long as it has its present incumbents and their duplicitous and untrustworthy chums seeking to feather their duck nest and ambitions!

Good luck!

Meanwhile I do look forward to your return to your subject of competence, explaining economics as you understand them.
