Brexit

Mail
Boris Johnson has reignited the row over his controversial claim that Brexit could mean Britain would have £350million extra a week to spend on the NHS by saying the figure was a underestimated.  The Foreign Secretary claimed the official Vote Leave campaign could have used a higher figure as the UK’s gross contribution would rise to £438 million by 2021, the last year of an expected transition period. The claim first attracted criticism during the referendum campaign, when the 53-year-old was travelling around the country in a Vote Leave bus emblazoned with the slogan: ‘We send the EU £350 million a week let’s fund our NHS instead’. After reviving the argument in September, he was accused of ‘misusing’ official figures to highlight the benefits of Brexit by UK Statistics Authority chairman Sir David Norgrove, angering Leavers.

BORIS Johnson’s Brexit vow of clawing back £350million a week from the EU should have been £438million, he says. The Foreign Secretary claimed: “We grossly underestimated the sum over which we would be able to take back control.” He said the UK’s weekly gross contribution will continue to rise – and will stand at £438m per week the end of a likely post-Brexit transition period in 2020-21. Critics slammed Vote Leave’s Brexit battle bus claim that we would get back the cash – but Boris insisted campaigners were right to pledge it would go to the NHS.

ITV News
Boris Johnson has reopened the row about the Brexit campaign’s claim that leaving the European Union would give Britain an extra £350 million a week to spend on the NHS, saying the figure was an underestimate. The Foreign Secretary said Vote Leave could have used a higher figure as the UK’s gross contribution would rise to £438 million by 2021, the last year of an expected transition period. Johnson claimed Britain’s contribution to the EU budget was already at £362 million a week, the Guardian reported. “There was an error on the side of the bus. We grossly underestimated the sum over which we would be able to take back control,” he told the newspaper. “As and when the cash becomes available – and it won’t until we leave – the NHS should be at the very top of the list.”

Breitbart
Britain’s small and medium-sized businesses overwhelmingly want a clean break with the European Union (EU), outside the bloc’s Single Market and Customs Union. Leaving these institutions would free firms of the bloc’s restrictive rules and labour regulations, which critics say hit smaller businesses harder, whilst opening up trade to growing markets outside Europe. In contrast, larger corporations and more international businesses largely want to remain tied to the bloc and its rules, which have served them for the past 40 years. The findings come from a YouGov survey, carried out for the accountancy firm RSM in November and December, and reported by the 
Financial Times.

EU

Express
THE PROPOSED German coalition deal which Angela Merkel is desperately putting together to keep her in power focuses extremely heavily on the European Union. With likely key coalition partner Martin Schulz, the leader of the Social Democrats (SPD) and former European Parliament president, pulling the strings over the balance of power, Brussels looks set to benefit if the deal is agreed.  More than three months after the German federal election Martin Schulz and Angela Merkel appear to be finally nearing agreement – with the  European Union at the heart. Mr Schulz still needs to finalise approval for the deal from his party but the draft indicates the direction the grand coalition is heading. The deal has been translated into English by the Ghent European Law Institute, which highlighted how the first three pages of the proposed agreement is dedicated to Brussels. 

Times
European Union governments demanded yesterday that their citizens who come to Britain after Brexit be allowed to remain in the country indefinitely, in a move that threatens to derail delicate transition talks. 
In a new draft negotiating directive drawn up for Michel Barnier, the EU’s chief negotiator, member states said the UK’s ability to apply a new immigration system to EU citizens arriving during the transition should be curbed. It in effect reopens the deal the UK made with the EU in December, which said that only EU citizens present at the time of Brexit could stay without restriction and indefinitely. Last night a British source said the UK position was unchanged.

Guardian
Theresa May has been hit with a double Brexit blow as the EU toughened up its terms for a transition period and  Norway privately warned Brussels that giving in to the UK’s demands for a “special” trade deal could force it to rip up its own agreements with the bloc. A paper on Michel Barnier’s demands for the transition period, leaked to the Guardian, reveals that the EU plans to insist on the free movement of people throughout the transition period and the inclusion of people moving to the UK before 31 December 2020 in the terms of an agreement on rights for nationals from the rest of Europe post-Brexit. The UK had at one time wanted the agreement on citizens to be limited to people who moved to the UK before 29 March 2017, when Theresa May triggered article 50.

Sun
TWO more EU countries have backed calls for a trade deal with Britain. Luxembourg and Sweden have joined Spain and the Netherlands in wanting a post-Brexit agreement which includes both goods and services. Italy, Poland, Hungary and the Republic of Ireland have also spoken in favour of such a treaty. Germany and France face a rebellion over their hardline Brexit stance. Luxembourg PM Xavier Bettel said: “Most would be happy to stick as close as possible to the current status quo.” Chancellor Philip Hammond has said any EU offer of a trade deal that does not include services would not be a “realistic proposition” for the UK.

Express
THE EU is pressuring Switzerland not to make a bilateral deal with Britain after Brexit, it was revealed last night. The move appears to be part of a “punishment agenda” by Brussels and has led to concerns that the European Commission is not negotiating with Britain in good faith. A private briefing has raised concerns that the EU is secretly pursuing an aggressive agenda against the UK at the same time that it is trying to force Britain to agree to “full regulatory alignment” with Brussels and give up the opportunity to compete. The commission yesterday denied the allegations with a spokeswoman describing them as “invented”. However, several senior MPs told the Daily Express that the warning was issued by senior Swiss sources.  A Government minister said: “Basically they are trying to squeeze Switzerland by the *****. 

Express
JUDGES are set to decide whether Brexit can be reversed – with the decision resting in the hands of the European Court of Justice (ECJ). An EU study on whether Article 50 can be un-triggered said the decision does not rest with Britain alone.  The study by Brussels said the UK cannot simply decide to stop Brexit and remain in the European Union.  Ioannis Papageorgiou of the European Parliament’s constitutional affairs committee policy department said: “The assumption that there is a self-affirmed right of member states to interpret the silence of the treaty in the matter and conclude that the UK (or any) notification of withdrawal under Article 50 can be revoked would have long-lasting political and legal consequences for the EU.

Calais

Independent
Emmanuel Macron will press Theresa May to take in more unaccompanied child refugees and pay more towards policing the port of Calais in a meeting between the two leaders on Thursday. The French president will on Tuesday visit the refugee camps in Calais ahead of the summit to survey the camp where his government estimates 400 people are living in the hope of reaching the UK. The Touquet accords, signed in 2003, effectively moved the British border to the French side of the channel and allowed UK immigration officers to carry out checks in Calais. While serving as economy minister in the French Socialist government in March 2016 ahead of the EU referendum, Mr Macron himself warned the agreements would have to be renegotiated if the Leave campaign won. Now the French government says the UK must take in more refugees from the area, in particular unaccompanied minors – and pay more for policing the daily cat-and-mouse game between authorities and people trying to enter the UK.

Sky News
Nearly 1,000 people are still camped out in Northern France desperately hoping to get into Britain, despite the demolition of the Calais jungle 15 months ago. Sky News has witnessed the daily attempt by some of the young migrants to access trucks bound for the UK, just hours before the French President is due to arrive in the port town. Emmanuel Macron is meeting police and charities who are trying, with conflicting methods, to deal with the town’s continuing migration problems. His visit comes two days before he travels to the UK where he is expected to call on the British government to take in more migrants and contribute more money for the policing and security of the port town.

Westmonster
French President Emmanuel Macron is preparing to tell the UK that he wants us to let more migrants from Calais in and cough up more for border controls in Calais. An Elysee source told the Financial Times that Macron is pushing for what he regards to be a “certain number of improvements from the UK”. Interior Minister Gerard Collomb has reportedly said that ‘I want to reach an additional protocol to these agreements and to take concrete measures to look after a certain number of costs by the British’ and that the UK must take in ‘a larger number of people, as regards to the reception of refugees and unaccompanied minors.’ As part of the talks, Macron wants Britain to open its borders to Calais migrants who have ‘legitimate reasons to be transferred to the other side of the Channel’ – something which couldn’t possibly be known until an asylum claim was filed. The French President also wants the UK to pay more towards the costs of enforcing border controls in Calais, despite us recently paying £2.3 million for a huge wall around the port that doesn’t even lock!

Sun
MPs erupted in fury last night after the French boasted they had forced Britain into coughing up more money and agreeing to take in more refugees in order to renew the Calais border agreement. Senior Tory MP Tim Loughton warned the UK had already spent a whopping £100m over the last three years that was arguably “not our liability”. It followed claims from Paris sources that President Macron had managed to “strong arm” Britain into a deal. Last night Dover MP Charlie Elphicke blasted: “British taxpayers are fed up of the French constantly demanding more money to help police their borders. “We’ve already handed over millions to bolster security in Calais and dismantle the Jungle migrant camp. “It’s time President Macron and his team got a grip of the situation – rather than keep asking us for more cash.”

Foreign aid

Independent
A vow to spend Britain’s foreign aid in “the national interest”, rather than simply to help the world’s poorest people, has triggered criticism of the International Development Secretary. Penny Mordaunt came under fire after pledging to allocate her £13bn overseas aid budget on “tackling the issues that matter most to the British people”. Such projects could include preventing plastics polluting the oceans and the illegal wildlife trade – which “the British public care about passionately”, she said. Labour warned immediately that the strategy risked weakening support for aid spending, if the public no longer believed it was helping the world’s poor. And the Liberal Democrats accused Ms Mordant of following in the footsteps of her ousted predecessor, Priti Patel, by “pursuing pathetic headlines in the right-wing press”.

Migration

Independent
Theresa May must drop her target to slash net migration to “the tens of thousands” because it “undermines” the public’s trust in politics, MPs say. 
People expect “practical steps” to cut the number of people entering the country, rather than a target that has been missed year-on-year, the Commons Home Affairs Committee warned. Its report is the latest strong criticism of the immigration goal which the Prime Minister has insisted on keeping, despite growing opposition – including from within her own Cabinet. The Independent  and Open Britain, which is pressing for a soft Brexit, are running a Drop the Target campaign calling for the “tens of thousands” policy to be dropped. Now that campaign has been given backing by the influential committee, in a report which also fears the scale of illegal immigration have grown because of a lack of official data. It concluded: “The Government’s existing net migration target set at “the tens of thousands” is not working to build confidence or consent.

NHS

Telegraph
Ministers are demanding urgent explanations over the release of medical data to a US firm working for one of the world’s largest tobacco companies. MPs are tomorrow expected to grill Public Health England (PHE) on how the decision was taken to hand over the anonymised information, extracted from the records of 180,000 patients diagnosed with lung cancer. Tonight Health Minister Lord O’Shaughnessy told the 
Daily Telegraph: “I know many patients will be concerned about why this data was released so I have sought an urgent explanation from Public Health England. “If this information was gained inappropriately, I will raise this with the Information Commissioner as a matter of urgency,” he said, adding that he had been assured that the data could not identify patients.  Public health experts said the actions by PHE amounted to an “extraordinary oversight”.

Times
Medical students have been asked to help out in overstretched hospital wards to deal with the winter backlog. The request came as leaders of Britain’s 220,000 doctors warned of a crisis in the NHS, which they said would get steadily worse every year. The Academy of Medical Royal Colleges, the umbrella group for bodies that set standards for doctors, said that despite better winter planning “the problems have been worse than ever”. It said that the problems were caused by a lack of staff and funding and that Britain needed “an honest debate about what kind of health and social care system people can reasonably expect and what it will cost to deliver”.

Mail
Private GPs have been accused of cashing in on the flu crisis by charging as much as £45 for a vaccine that costs the  NHS £8. And some clinics are charging up to £75 for a nasal immunisation spray for children that costs the health service £18. Although patients in certain ‘at risk’ groups – including the over-65s – get vaccinated for free on the NHS, the majority have to pay privately. They can get it either from a pharmacist or a private GP clinic, as their own NHS doctor will only have enough stocks for at-risk patients. Many private clinics have seen a surge in demand in the past week after a sudden rise in flu rates, which are twice as high as last year. Figures yesterday showed cases had increased by a third compared with last week, but this is likely to be an under-estimate.

Bolton

Express
UKIP leader Henry Bolton last night faced angry demands for his resignation – despite dumping his controversial 25-year-old girlfriend in an attempt to save his job. The beleagured chief of the anti-Brussels party insisted his “romantic” relationship with model Jo Marney was over following revelations of her racist text messages about Prince Harry’s fiancee Meghan Markle. Leaked mobile phone messages sent by Miss Marney included use of the word “negro” and suggested Miss Markle’s “seed” would “taint” the Royal family. But the end of his liaison failed to pacify furious Ukip colleagues who accused him of bringing the party into disrepute. Mr Bolton was warned he could face a no-confidence vote from Ukip’s ruling national executive committee this weekend. 

Huffington Post
Henry Bolton’s stint as Ukip leader looks to be coming to an end within days, with the party’s ruling committee set to turf him out at a meeting on Sunday. The Ukip NEC will meet this weekend and HuffPost UK has learned the committee will seek to remove Bolton as party leader after further controversy around his private life. Revelations Bolton left his wife for a Ukip activist almost 30 years his junior provoked anger in the party, with many feeling he had presented a false image of himself during last summer’s leadership campaign. Those feelings have grown stronger since a series of text messages from his girlfriend Jo Marney were released which showed her making racist comments about Prince Harry’s fiancée Meghan Markle. Bolton today revealed he had ended the “romantic part” of his relationship with Marney, who has been suspended by the party for her derogatory comments.

Telegraph
The wife of the Ukip leader Henry Bolton has twisted the knife, refusing to have him back and questioning his ‘inexplicably poor’ judgment over his affair with a ‘racist’ party activist. Tatiana Smurova-Bolton said her husband’s future as leader should now be decided by the party but offered him no support. Mr Bolton deserted his wife and their two young children at Christmas after meeting Jo Marney, a model and Ukip member who is almost 30 years his junior. Mr Bolton, 54, went on television on Monday to announce he was dumping his 25-year-old girlfriend after just a month because of racist comments she had made about Prince Harry’s fiancee Meghan Markle. But his future as Ukip leader now hangs in the balance while his marriage to Mrs Smurova-Bolton is also over.

Times
He was told to choose his racist girlfriend or his role as Ukip leader, but despite ditching his partner yesterday Henry Bolton could still be ousted as party chief. Jo Marney, a 25-year-old model, had described Meghan Markle, Prince Harry’s fiancée, as a “black American” who would “taint” the royal family and said “this is Britain, not Africa”, according to The Mail on Sunday. She was suspended from the party. She apologised unreservedly for the “shocking language” used, but claimed that it had been taken out of context. Mr Bolton, 54, told ITV that he did not defend her comments but added that he did not believe that they reflected her “core beliefs”.

Mail
UKIP leader Henry Bolton faced a party mutiny last night despite dumping his mistress in a desperate bid to save his career. He split with topless model Jo Marney, 25, after it emerged that she made racist comments about Meghan Markle. Despite saying he would stick by his lover, 54-year-old Mr Bolton yesterday said the ‘romantic part’ of his relationship was over following comments in which she suggested black people were ‘ugly’. However, pressure continued to mount on Mr Bolton to quit as senior members of the party led a revolt against him. He faces a vote of no confidence at a summit attended by senior party figures on Sunday, said deputy leader Suzanne Evans. Asked if he should resign, she told the BBC’s Daily Politics: ‘Unfortunately I think he should. I say that with a very heavy heart, because the last thing we need is another leadership election.’

Guardian
Henry Bolton’s future as Ukip leader is in the balance, with some senior party figures calling on him to resign despite him ending his relationship with an activist found to have sent a series of racist and offensive messages. Suzanne Evans, formerly Ukip’s deputy leader, said she expected Bolton to either resign or be sacked because of how he handled his relationship with Jo Marney, who made racial slurs against Meghan Markle, Prince Harry’s fiancee. Bolton, who was elected to the role three months ago, said he would stay in the post “for the good of the party” and was being unfairly targeted by people who had always opposed his leadership. Some senior Ukip figures said Bolton should not be forced out immediately, in part to avoid a fourth leadership election in 16 months.

Mirror
The 25-year-old model, who was dumped by UKIP leader Henry Bolton after her racist messages were exposed, has fled to Disneyland as calls mount for him to quit. Henry Bolton looked set to be booted out of his job as soon as this weekend, despite having dumped Jo Marney. Ms Marney, who is believed to be on a jolly to the theme park in Paris, was suspended from the party after she made vile racial slurs about Meghan Markle . More horrific messages are understood to exist, showing Ms Marney making jokes about child abuse. But Bolton, 54, refused to quit, despite mounting questions over his judgement in leaving his wife for Marney, 25. In an interview with ITV’s Good Morning Britain, Mr Bolton said: “I don’t defend these comments whatsoever and indeed Jo has been suspended pending an investigation under the normal rules of the party for such things, and it is against the constitution for the party to be racist in any way.”As of Sunday the romantic side of our relationship is ended.” Mr Bolton’s estranged wife, Tatiana Smurova was reported to be relieved he had ditched the 25-year-old model.

Sun
UNDER-FIRE Ukip leader Henry Bolton tried to cover up his shamed mistress’s rants with menacing threats, The Sun can reveal. The former Army officer and cop has publicly insisted he had no knowledge of part time model Jo Marney’s twisted views until contacted by a Sunday newspaper three days ago. But The Sun has seen a series of messages Mr Bolton sent to a former boyfriend last week to try to stop him from leaking private messages to him. They included a series from Marney about child abuse and the rape of a baby. In his exchange with Marney’s ex, Mr Bolton warns: “You are so far out of your depth here. You are playing with Fire”. The Ukip boss added: “It’s a shame you let Ben talk you into releasing the other messages you received from Jo. Why did you do that?” The ex-boyfriend replied: “If I tell you why will you promise not to basically make my life agony? Not going to lie, you scare me.” Mr Bolton then told him: “If you tell me yes, but more so if you promise not to do this again. Then I will leave you alone”.

  1. NHS:

    Maybe it needs additional funding, maybe not; it’s organisation and management is so shambolic that nobody knows.

    However it is clear that it has been put under stress by uncontrolled immigration and the diseases that come with it.

    What is needed is a complete reform so that the many excellent medical staff can use their skills to the benefit of native Brits without being encumbered by out of date management systems and accounting.

    Throwing more money at inefficiency only makes it worse.

  2. And on Suzanne Evans, in her recent tweets she mentions she is still a member and her health is ‘very good’. She’s been on TV quite a lot. Raheem has been attacking her for briefing against Farage to Sky News, now she is named in this ‘The Revolution’ black ops note, meaning that Henry must suspect she is one of the possible plotters…. plus ca change….. all goes to show that even if Henry is gone (which I doubt), the fighting will simply start again….

  3. BLUFF, DOUBLE BLUFF, REVERSE BLUFF – so now Henry is puffing up a conspiracy against him from within UKIP, with Marney’s ex-boyfriend being asked by UKIP plotters to provide the text messages. These plotters are not named, but helpfully another document is doing the rounds for a meeting in Brighton with the invite headed ‘The Revolution’ (well, Prince is dead so I guess they have to go by that name now) they are named as Ben Walker, Bill Etheridge, David Kurten and….. Suzanne Evans of course. Seems Henry must have taken the black ops course at Sandhurst and may be doing his own counter-intelligence work, but that list of names makes it seem a little too obvious. Also the FT reported today he owes £28,000 in management fees on his flat (I still find it hard to believe anyone’s management fees are that high unless they are actually assisted living fees or he had butler service) and has to sell the flat to pay off the debt. His options for a place to live are running out fast, obviously wives 1,2 and 3 won’t have him, Jo Marney’s 79 year-old mum probably needs a respite break, and now he has to flog the flat. Frankly, I thinking we are looking at a man in the early stage of a complete mental breakdown. I’ve always wondered how it is so many veterans end up homeless, do they all have as complicated a backstory as this?

  4. I`ve just been reading Mr.Hague`s weasel words in his DT column this morning.
    I caution you all to read it.
    He says in essence UKIP has peaked, achieved its purpose and should just fade away, in fact dissolve itself.
    He suggests the official notification we should publish.
    “In UKIP we have now achieved our objective of the British people voting to leave the European Union and their wishes being respected. Now is the time formally to suspend our activities and for each of us to contribute to politics in new ways or leave it. We emphasis, however, that should any doubt arise about withdrawal from the EU in the coming months we will be ready to resume our campaigning with all the energy and support that would come from a failure to deliver the wishes of the people”

    At one time Hague was the darling of the Conservative party, his oratory was said to be the greatest of our present age, he held the house of Commons in the palm of his hand.

    Then somehow it all faded away, I don`t exactly recall what exposed his feet of clay. He used, if memory serves me right to inveigh ferociously against the EU, he coined the phrase “taxation by stealth” (whether he coined it or not is debateable – he certainly used it) and he waxed lyrical about the “ratchet” clause in the Lisbon treaty.
    But came the referendum I believe he tended to the Remainiacs cause (knew which side his bread was buttered – the establishment – government by FEAR) and now here he is “INTERFERING” in the affairs of UKIP (Perhaps the trait reflects some sort of Russian influence in his thinking and modus operandi)
    Certainly he has been at the base of the Conservative party “dissing” UKIP from the start of when we were pressing for Nigel to be included in the negotiating team.
    By his article and suggestions however he cannot disguise the debt the Conservative party and the LEAVE campaign owe to UKIP and also to the character of the Brexit divorce, he cannot go against the words of Adonis who in effect associated the term “Hard Brexit” with UKIP`s influence on the Cons.
    I feel that Hague is not a convicted LEAVER in fact I believe Hague is at the bottom of the campaign to minimise, deny, exclude and destroy UKIP`s (and 17.4 million Grass Roots voices) from having an effective voice in the outcome, he is a master of stealth, he is a very dangerous man and his article is really gives credence to the ultimate objective of a settlement “In Name Only” or even to do the democratic thing and change our minds (ref Tusk today

    • I’ll let this comment pass because you have one extensive quote from the Hague article.
      But: will all comment posters please remember the 400-word-limit for comment posts!
      Longer – send it in as letter, even longer – why not send it in as article.
      Them is the rules!

    • Thanks Viv I appreciate your help and warning, I knew it was a bit long and I had already chopped the end off; not very successfully – note the unclosed final bracket

    • “Then somehow it all faded away, I don’t exactly recall what exposed his feet of clay” Was it not his involvement with a vivacious lady who looked to be younger than him? An involvement that appeared to be much more inviting than front line politics.

    • There is a conclusion I would like to add!
      At the outset of my piece I traced Hague`s own zenith and subsequent fall from grace and his own path to being yesterday`s man.
      I wonder if he has ever noticed how equivalent the cheeky nostrums he is prescribing leading to the eradication of UKIP are much the same as have marred his ability to be at the centre of national events.

      Hague will not succeed in his deadly quest, UKIP will not die at his command, in fact his duplicity will only serve to alert 17.4 million Grass Rooters to the dangers generated by the Remoaners and alert them to the legitimacy of UKIP as the only political party dedicated to attaining a HARD/COMPLETE/TOTAL Brexit in accordance with our referendum promises.
      Note we did not promise a divorce settlement
      We did not promise a two year implementation period.
      we did not promise an implementation period still subject to ECJ law.
      We did not promise an implementation period in which we continued to pay into EU funds.
      We did not promise the continuation of a European Arrest Warrant.
      We did not promise a continuation of a tidal wave of Immigration – we suggested an Australian Style Points system.
      So there Mr.Hague butt out and go look for manure in your own bailiwick, I can assure you there are dozens of fools and yes men intent on selling out the nation to the EU

  5. “European Union governments demanded yesterday that their citizens who come to Britain after Brexit be allowed to remain in the country indefinitely …”. So, first they give their refugees/migrants citizenship then they ship them over? What are we? The Promised Land?

    “… and has led to concerns that the European Commission is not negotiating with Britain in good faith.” And this is news? Any minute now they’ll be telling us Hitler was a bad man!

    Or saying: “Theresa May must drop her target to slash net migration to “the tens of thousands” because it “undermines” the public’s trust in politics”. Oh, but they just did!

    Well at least they didn’t suggest this might undermine our trust in Mrs. May.
    Now that WOULD be a challenge.

  6. “You are so far out of your depth here. You are playing with Fire”. More talk from a fantasist. Nobody should be afraid of Bolton he is just a little weasel in my opinion. He’s all bluff. We saw that in the leadership campaign with regard to his challenge on AMW’s right to stand.

    • I saw those words and almost fell off my chair laughing. He is truly delusional. Can I suggest that UKIP adopt psychometric testing for future leadership candidates? It is well developed and used by most companies for their senior people.

    Dear team,

    The Mirror says “Mr Bolton’s estranged wife, Tatiana Smurova was reported to be relieved he had ditched the 25-year-old model.”

    Divorcees (and widows and widowers) seem to feel that they can legally shack up with anyone they choose, even if that would be bad for their children. I am seeing it happening all around me amongst my friends.

    I forecast that there will soon be a movement to give children more rights to veto such liaisons.

    Regards, Toby, 01932-873557

  8. So HB lied in public about when he became aware of JM’s texts. Goner.

  9. ////The 25-year-old model, who was dumped by UKIP leader Henry Bolton after her racist messages were exposed, has fled to Disneyland as calls mount for him to quit.

    So THAT’S why Bolton was caught at Ashford International on Sunday.
    Did UKIP pay for it to shut her up??

    • The newspaper report and photographs of evasive Henry Bolton (leader of UKIP) in Ashford euro tunnel terminal again did not show UKIP in a good light.

      Mr Bav I am unsure about your repeated assertion that there is no conspiracy, insertion, infiltration, disruption strategy being applied to UKIP. UKIP has been effectively neutralised as evidenced by its failure to raise any significant level of noise in the last few months about any aspect of the Brexit process.

      Also there is a chronic grassroots lack of confidence in the leadership and UKIP central HQ. This is reaching a critical level as the stagnation and lack of purpose by UKIP central continues by week on week.

      Whether you are correct or not, about the absence of conspiracy, UKIP central HQ is not functioning in an inspiring leading capacity over the party.

      On a side note I never understand the necessity for a youth wing of any party. I know the communist party, the conservative party, the national union of farmers all have their youth wings. Surely, anyone reaching 18 is just as valid to join and partake in the pleasures of full UKIP membership, without being corralled off.

      UKIP is needed and is still salvageable.

    • Oh, what a tangled web we weave
      When first we practise to deceive.

      Could have been written with Bolton in mind!

    • Why Disneyland, so she can stay inside a fantasy bubble? I guess its cheap this time of year. She does have the look of one of the ‘cast’ they have dressed up as Snow White for the parades. I hope she doesn’t stray from her resort hotel and enter some of the banlieus that surround Disneyland, she might meet a lot of people she finds unattractive….
