Ten essentials to being an On Line activist for UKIP

1. You must be happy to identify yourself as a UKIP supporter. There is no point in being subtle; be out there loud and proud …

2. Slavishly follow the party line .. No dissent is allowed.

3. Defend your MEP’s racist/homophobic/Anti Semitic tweets as being all about Freedom of Speech – until they apologise in the national press and then say how great they are at admitting mistakes.

4. With absolutely no sense of irony declare that Farage is the new Churchill. Don’t worry even for his time, Churchill was rather racist.


5. You must be happy to ignore all evidence that disagrees with the party’s non evidenced position – whether on climate change, grammar schools, the EU, NHS managers, immigration .. I could go on but I think you get the point.

6. Further to point 5, you have to believe Rog the Bot, however unable he is to prove his tweets.


Nope Roger the number of NHS managers that were non clinical rose from 2.7% of staff in 1999 to 3.6% in 2009. As for their pay


But if you want to be a great online Ukip activist these facts must be ignored!

7. You must complain bitterly about the inability of comedians to make sexist, racist, homophobic Jokes as being just too much PC. But if someone laughs at Ukip demand that they be removed from public life forthwith .. It’s just all BIAS ..


8. As a great Ukip activist you must be prepared to accuse every anti Ukip activist of being a Liblabcon, Unite Labour Troll, paid for with EU/union/labour money. Whilst you of course are online because of your undying love for Farage.


9. When being an activist for Ukip you must at all times ignore the wishes of victims so as to make political points for your party ( you may be as offensive and as libellous as you wish, you may also link to BNP and other far right web sites )

However if anyone does the same to Ukip you must at once call for the lawyers


10. Finally to be an online activist for Ukip involves the ability to tell bare faced lies convincingly – you will be able to do this because you are hopelessly naive and you truly believe all that UKIPs elitist leaders tell you.

Post script .. You must ignore evidence of other Ukip activists being racist, by stating that you yourself are not racist. You can use the Libertarian excuse, therefore avoiding alienating our BNP and EDL supporters.

This is an excellent example


You should all study Caroline as an excellent example in never condemning any racist or homophobic attitudes from other Ukip supporters.


Hey Ukip pick a page any page I chose xxi .. First lie by omission

My Why Vote Ukip book has arrived, written by Suzanne Evans. There is already a quite brilliant deconstruct of the entire book by Michael Abberton.

I decided on a different approach pick a page at random and fact check what we find.

Page xxi “we are unable to deport foreign criminals any where in the he world because of our compulsory surrender to the judgements of the ECHR”

“We are unable to deport”

Clearly we are able to deport.

From the headlines in newspapers and Ukip rhetoric you would think all 324 are hardened criminals who have committed heinous crimes. There are of course those who no one realistically wants to keep in the UK –

In 2013 there was
2 Attempted Murderers
1 Attempted Rape
1 Indecent Assault on a minor
2 Manslaughter
1 Murder
2 Offences under the sex offenders act
4 Rape
1 Rape of a minor
34 Violent Crime

That we would like to deport these criminals is not in doubt. That a judge has looked at their cases and decided that their families have primary importance and that, that, outweighs any future threat they pose, is also not in doubt.

Article 8 is oft blamed for the inability to deport criminals. What is not accurately quoted is that the right to a family life is not about the person to be deported but about the rights of the partner and children. For example in the case of Mohammed Ibrahim who failed to stop after an accident where a 12 year old child was killed. There was no effort to deport him after release and in the mean time he married and became a father to two children and a stepfather to a further two. The judge in the case said that the children could not be expected to move to Iraq and as a result he would be allowed to stay in the UK. If there had been no children the judge said his decision would have been different.

“Compulsory surrender to the ECHR ”

The press often makes an assumption that if a judge says legislation is incompatible with the HRA than parliament must change the law. This is not the case, government has the choice on his to respond, if at all. The courts can not use HRA to force Parliament to change the law. (R v Shayler 2002 754 para 53)

The desire to remove us from the EHRA is not confined just to Ukip, some tories are also similarly afflicted with these illogical thoughts. That they quote the EU and the ECHR is to completely mislead they are unrelated. Since 1959 the ECHR has delivered rulings to the UK less than 500 times.


Some of the cases the UK lost

In 1979 the ECHR ruled against an injunction imposed on the Sunday Times which prevented them reporting on the thalidomide scandal.
When the Republic of Ireland banned homosexuality in 1981, the ECHR challenged this under Article 8, the right to respect for private and family life.
The same happened when our armed forces were dismissing homosexuals from armed forces after investigating their private life.
In 1986 the ECHR ruled in favour of trans* people allowing them to change their legal gender.
In 1998 the ECHR ruled against the UK government for failing to protect a child who was being beaten by their stepfather.
In 2008 the ECHR ruled against the police storing the DNA and fingerprints of innocent people on their database.
in 2010 a government scheme which charged some immigrants a fee only if they were not planning to marry in the Church of England was ruled against.

Of course Ukip are about removing our rights, whilst trying to convince the public it’s all in their interests.

Mr Bickley of the UKIPs .. Step away from Twitter

Two cases in the past week have illustrated how UKIP, from their supporters to their PPCs are either misinformed or use lies to try and persuade the British public around to their point of view. I am not going to embarrass one by giving details .. her shame would be everlasting

The second involves the rather poor loser who is John Bickley, failed by-election candidate, prospective PCC for GE2015 and the oft trotted out working class hero of UKIP. Now to be fair I will point out that Mr Bickley has 396 tweets to his name, and probably less after he deletes any that he has made in the last 24 hours. This makes him a Twitter babe in arms and perhaps he thought that be being exceedingly patronising and telling a whopping lie he wold endear himself to the voting public – who knows?

It all started with a throw away tweet from me – now a more “experienced” (intelligent) parliamentary candidate would have ignored it for what it was – a bit of a dig.

But no Mr Bickley responded with this


And then this ..


I did suggest he stepped away from twitter..

But no he persisted with this conversation about the leaflets he produced during the by-election.


Foolishly conceding that indeed there were other victims of the abuse who were not white – but hey Ukip focussed on the white ones only. That Ukip ignored the Asian victims of abuse is illustrative of their policy of trying to win elections in the the North by attempting to divide mostly financially deprived communities.

Meanwhile he is also being asked about EU legislation by Grilling Kippers and specifically what EU red tape is causing problems for British Businesses. Now if I was a Ukip PPC I would then quote one of the many pieces of EU legislation put in place to ensure worker and consumer safety ( Ukip object to these for reasons only known to Ukip). That however is not what Mr Bickley did he tweeted this


Now this is an Urban Legend, you can find it on Snoops hereI – It’s been around since the 1940’s so it’s not even a new one. It has been used for EU legislation before ..


The only conclusion that can be reached is that Mr Bickley thinks that those he engages with on twitter are as naïve and trusting in the Ukip hype as the vast majority of the Ukip cult follower. That he holds the voting public in such contempt is not a surprise.

Mr Bickley is still at it apparently he has found his conversations with ‘lefties’ amusing

. I believe the last laugh is mine Mr Bickley.

Here is your mythical cabbage ..
