How UKIP has been perverted by the Cabal

Tim Congdon has published an email to Gerard Batten from Anthony Scholefield, UKIP party secretary around 2000 that largely speaks for itself. I reproduce it below:

Dear Gerard, 

I thank you for your letter of 24th September, announcing that you have decided to stand down in the UKIP leadership election and support Tim Congdon.

Your action reflects credit on yourself.

I believe that the view expressed by yourself, and also by Tim Congdon, that the leadership of UKIP must be in the UK is correct.  The MEP wing of UKIP has its own sphere of activity and can be useful as similar parties to UKIP are growing in other EU countries, but it must be incorporated into and directed by the national party in the UK.
As you know, up to 2001 the party was based either in my offices in London or in offices funded by myself when I was Party Secretary.  I was also a substantial contributor to the risk-capital of UKIP to get the party started in its early years.  However, after the election of UKIP MEPs in 1999, I immediately became aware that some of the new MEPs had different and unconstitutional ideas of the role of the MEPs in the party.

At this point I ceased any funding to the national party, but continued to contribute to your own and other campaigns in London and elsewhere.

If Tim Congdon is elected Leader and in accordance with the published agreement between you and him carries out 'a commitment for the party to abide by its own Constitution, with a fair and impartial application of the rules', I look forward to rejoining, and to injecting some funding into the national party.  I would expect to see commitment and action by the MEPs to make substantial financial contributions to the national party.
The current political situation in the UK and the rest of the EU offers immense opportunities to UKIP with a wide field of action.  However, the turnover of members and activists has been far too high over the last few years and is linked in most cases to lack of confidence in the constitutional behaviour of the party, its officers and executives.  For progress to be made, this confidence must be restored.


Anthony Scholefield

Anthony's letter outlines the party I thought I was joining in 2007. A party of volunteers that would be based in the UK and work in the UK to try and get us out of the EU. Instead I found a corrupt Brussel's based ruling group who were quite simply there to line their own pockets. This continues to date and if anything has got worse dragging us in to alliances with Fascists and Racists for financial gain for the Cabal.

I endorse wholeheartedly what Anthony writes especially his comments on the Cabal's complete disregard for decent constitutional behaviour. They perverted the UKIP constitution to remove elected NEC members who sought to restore financial and administrative probity. They waived the rules to pervert our democracy and allow Andreasen, a non-UK national, non-resident  to stand and be elected for our party. Worse Mr Gill,  charged with seeing the rules were obeyed was the man who having waved through Andreasen in complete breach of 5 or 6 UKIP rules was unobtainable to deal with the the resulting justified complaints.

Only the Tim Congdon/Gerard Batten ticket can hope to extricate us from this festering EU swamp that the Cabal has dragged us into. Not only is Tim financially independent of the EU. He is a patriot who has no ambition to be an MEP. He will put money into UKIP unlike the Cabal who are only interested in taking money out.

There is as Anthony says a huge opportunity for UKIP. The EU is mired in its worst ever financial crisis. The PIIGS are protesting in the streets of their capitals. The City of London is turning against the EU Franco Prussian regulation designed to suck business out of London to Frankfurt and Paris. A God given opportunity which Tim is easily the best equipped to exploit.

Vote for a serious candidate not a spiv. Vote Tim and see UKIP strong again!
