He said on the Radio 4's Today Programme that he is accepting the Peerage because he 'wants to influence environmental policy'.
Mmmm did he not say in the past that he would not follow the likes of Neil Kinnock into the Lords (who himself disparaged its existence until he was offered a Peerage).
Its remarkable how these people change their views the minute the 'reward' is offered to them.
O well, we only have ourselves to blame for electing them in the first place.

Our previous blog reveals the circumstances.
Let every politician beware - we the public are watching them; and any hypocrisy, any dishonesty or any misleading of the public, should, and MUST, result in their departure.
Only then will the public begin to respect the political process and the people within it, once more.

In his statement last night he said: "Although we were living together we did not treat each other as spouses. For example we do not share bank accounts and indeed have separate social lives." '

“Today, people are discovering what a 'common destiny' in monetary matters means. They are discovering that the euro affects their pensions, savings, and jobs, their very daily life. It hurts."

People also seem to forget that Farage championed Lord Pearson as Leader, making it clear that the other candidates (some of his own MEPS) were not 'up to the job'.

We thought the BNP were against UK membership of the EU, and here we have its Leader wanting to focus on being re-elected. This is exactly what has happened at UKIP and the Tories in the Scottish and Welsh Assemblies/Parliaments.
Shame on them All!

The rumour doing the rounds is that Lord Pearson has resigned his leadership of UKIP and is hiding at Rannock on his Perthshire Estate, hoping no doubt, to be able to hide in a cloud of volcanic ash and not be able to fly back.
If this is the case, the difficulty is, who will replace him?
It may prove difficult for Farage to return as everyone realises that the policy of trying to help the Tories at the General Election was his - a repeat of the battle he had with Natrass and others at the previous General Election. (He may also not wish to be tainted should UKIP declare Bankruptcy after the Appeal hearing next month) but he must still control the Party. They surely would not want an election at this stage in case the wrong person wins.
We believe, that as Deputy Leader, Farage sock-puppet (No. 2) David Bannerman will be annointed as caretaker. If the ship sinks, he will be seen to have been at the helm. If successful, they may keep him in post, or more likely front someone more appealing and charismatic as Leader next year.
Either way, no real change at the top.
A cynic may speculate that a potentially weak currency whose country is experiencing some political turmoil is deliberately targetted by these people/institutions to make a few, or even tens, of Billions of dollars in speculative gains.
We are FREE MARKET supporters, but DO NOT accept that such markets should be allowed to be hijacked or manipulated in this way - as the only beneficiaries are a small handful of people.
We remember how George Soros made over a Billion Dollars back in the 90's betting against sterling. Since then, Institutions have refined the model, and, as we understand, have created a degree of market manipulation to enable even more vast profits to be made.
We believe Sterling is next.
The UK has: a relatively weak economy; a fragile New political alliance; committed itself to major Banking Reform; produced vast quantities of 'pounds' under the heading of 'quantitative easing'.
The budget deficit and potentially declining trade with Europe (due to the high value of sterling compared to the Euro)- our biggest export market, will be the excuse spread throughout International Markets.
These speculators are moving from Zone to Zone, so don't be surprised, and remember where you heard it first!

If it is, UKIP could be facing a bill of around £1,000,000
We believe that with the departure of Stuart Wheeler, UKIP is unlikely to be able to pay the debt.
It has been suggested to us by Finance experts that the logical course of action is to allow the Party to go bust and then repurchase it from the Receiver at a 'knockdown' price
Now, we don't know whether the Electoral Commission would allow this (or can even stop it).
This has led us to speculate, whether UKIP MEPs have raised the money or not, they may let the Party fail owing significant debts and then repurchase it again. They may have to use a 'front man or woman' in order to distance themselves from it, thereby claiming no manipulation.
We would suggest that any other interested Parties should consider making the purchase themselves, and prevent the hapless, (and in our view), incompetent, existing MEPS to return; but to use the brand to develop a New re-invigorated Party with new people and a New UK Agenda based on winning seats through Segmentation, Targetting and Positioning as opposed to the current non-strategy of fighting all seats and squandering resources.
We await with interest.

We ask the question however, did they have any choice?
The Party - Yes - but Clegg - No.
Under Clegg's leadership the Party lost seats. There were rumblings about replacing him. This alliance has, in our opinion saved his bacon.
Take the Tories, failing to obtain an overall majority - despite a long serving unpopular Government and a hapless, uninspiring, unelected sitting Prime Minister.
If they had failed to form a Government, Cameron, (we believe) was finished.
The 2 "twins" fate were entwined.
Now we have a Government where the Lib Dems will be absorbed by the Conservative Party providing Great Britain with a 2 Party State again. (Some conspiracy theorists believe we are in a 1 Party state and this is the conduit to formalise it).
The British people have been conned again. Please no-one mention UKIP. Our view is that UKIP is a Shadow Tory Party running to enrich a few select people and providing a depository for disenchanted Tories.
Only when another Party comes along, with strong financial backing, an Incorruptable Leader, (not from the Political or Eton/Oxbridge Class) can the British people trust in Politics again.
The question is, does such a Person/Party exist?
Friday, May 14, 2010
We understand that emails are circulating written by Mike Natrass and others heavily criticising the leadership of Lord Pearson and Nigel Farage for their General Election strategy and post election publicity.
It appears that boasting that UKIP has attracted a significant number of Tory Votes, thereby preventing Cameron from obtaining an overall majority in his own right, presents UKIP as a depository for disillusioned Tories; thereby alienating potential Labour supporters.
We have a tendency to agree.
But then thinking through what he says has never been a strong point of Nigel Farage nor, it appears, his sock-puppet Pearson.
We await developments.

UKIP made no impact other than that made by Nigel's Plane.
Time to bring in someone who does not want to make money out of politics!
Time to bring in someone who does not want to become a member of the political elite!
Time to bring in someone who wants UKIP members to win elections and become a credible force in British Politics!
No deal with the Lib Dems.
This is the only way, Labour can survive.
Allow the Tories and Lib Dems to form their unholy pact and there will be another General Election within 12 months against what will then be, an unpopular Coalition Government.
We are not saying that we want Labour to win that election, but by walking away, they stand an outside chance of doing so - its the only option they have.
For the rest of us, the demise of Gordon Brown and New Labour is the best news in over 13 years.

3.08% share of the vote
0.87% increase on previous General Election.
A most appalling result considering the Party had 13 MEPs to promote it around the Country.
Now compare this to the Greens:
0.96% share of the Vote
or Plaid Cymru:
0.56% share of the Vote
The point we are making is that it is all to do with targetting.
Yet UKIP spreads itself so thinly, it will never achieve a break-through. Yet this point is raised again and again but is ignored.
Until UKIP gets rid of its current Leadership, banish Nigel Farage to Europe and bring in people who understand electoral strategy - it will CONTINUE TO FAIL.

Hardly a good start.
The worst move however was the election of Lord Pearson to the position of Leader.
A former Tory Grandee and the favourite of the ex-Leader Nigel Farage is now campaigning in this election against his own members. We believe that Pearson is Nigel's 'sock-puppet' carrying out the policy that we believe Mr Farage has always wanted to follow (remember his falling out with a former UKIP MEP Robert Kilroy Silk over a similar issue?)
Now lets be clear, there is a logical strategy for not standing against candidates who demand that the UK should pull out of the EU and who pledge, to always vote for such, regardless of their own Party Policy. However, to our knowledge, the majority of people Lord Pearson is supporting have not given such an emphatic undertaking.
There is another issue too. UKIP has claimed that the other Parties are 'not to be trusted' because of the expenses scandal. Well if that is the case, we can think of no more a compelling argument for UKIP to stand up in its own right as an Independent Political Party and take on the establishment head on.
Logical - Yes?
Well not, if as we believe, UKIP has been developed over the years by Mr Farage to be a mere repository for malcontent anti-EU Tories with no real intention of ever winning politcal power. We see this through Mr Farage's appalling personal and amateurish political behaviour, in addition to ridding the Party of those serious in making UKIP honest, transparent and therefore electable.
What a shame - If ever UKIP's time has come - it is NOW!!!
What a shame it does not have the right Leadership to capitalise on it!
