Threat Of Major Scandal Prompted Early Election Move – UKIP

Leaders of the United Kingdom Independence Party (UKIP) have made astonishing claim that Prime Minister Teresa May’s move to call an early General Election in June this year was done to pre-empt a series of by-elections that could be called following a police investigation into alleged electoral fraud. Accusing May and the Conservative government she leads of “putting party before country”, UKIP front man Paul Nuttall appeared to suggest an electoral fraud scandal and the ensuing disqualification of sitting members of The House of Commons could rob the government of its slender majority in parliament.

Oops, sorry: that’s Teresa May the porn star, not the one who is a politician.

Mrs. May strongly denied she would call a snap election after being chosen, unopposed, as the Conservative leader following the resignation of David Cameron after he was humiliated when the country voted to leave the EU (Brexit). After parliament approved the invocation of the Article 50 Bill with a massive majority, with many of the unelected members of the House of Lords, along with a large section of Labour MPs, the Scottish Nationalists and Liberal Democrats along with a rebel faction in her own party promising they would prevent Brexit going ahead (in defiance of the democratic will,) The Prime minister today claimed she had “reluctantly” changed her mind.

Her U-turn also comes exactly a month after reports suggested Conservative Party figures were fearful of a series of by-elections that could be called after up to 20 of their MPs were alleged to have broken electoral law in the 2015 campaign, mostly in seats UKIP had a good chance of winning.

More than ten police forces have referred cases to the Crown Prosecution Service and lawyers are now considering whether to charge the MPs or their agents after a year long investigation.

“…The prospect of a slew of Tory-held by-elections caused by the seeming systematic breach of electoral law at the last election, predominantly in places where UKIP were pressing the Conservatives hard” could have influenced the decision to hold an election now, suggested Nuttall in a press statement.

Deputy UKIP leader Peter Whittle also said the decision was “utterly cynical”, adding: “But we’re having [a general election] now and my party is actually quite excited about it.” Speaking on the BBC’s Daily Politics, he said there was “no question” the Tories were acting out of self-interest.

Red Card For FIFA

And long overdue it is too for this self serving organisation and its corrupt officials. I have always hated international football (well, apart from that one day in 1966), it has always seemed to me to be about expanding the role of the bureaucracies that run the game rather than ordinary punters supporting their local team.

And when you look at FIFA officials, apart from the odd token former player, they are smooth faced elitists, industinguishable from the people who sit on the International Olympic Committee, run the EU, the United Nations, the Eurovision Song Contest and all the rest of it. In other words they are the type of people who in a former age would have talked about their divine right to rule, and God having created their ancestrs as a finer species of humans than us ordinary punters.

it is bollocks of course. The growth of international and trans national competitions (e.g. The World Cup and the European Champions League) has gone hand in hand with the expansion of the bureaucracies that run the game.

Well most participants in the Champions League are not champions of anything and the World Cup has turned into a massive and meaningless jollies (in fact several massive and meaningless jollies) for the games’ bosses, funded by fans.

As always however, the smooth faced back stabbers forgot that we are many and they are few, and they overreached themselves. Hubris always gets its just reward. The real damage was done when a World Cup tournament was awarded to Qatar, a small nation that did not boast a single decent stadium but had shitloads of oil money with which to sweeten the panel that chose future venues.

Things progressed from there until eventually a massive US investigation culminated in an early morning raid by Swiss police on senior football officials staying at a Zurich hotel. The suspects face federal corruption charges and may be extradited to the United States.

The organization’s officials reportedly stand accused of making World Cup bid bribes, arranging broadcaster and marketing deals, as well as wire fraud (a U.S. legal term for any fraud involving transactions dependent on telecommunications ), racketeering and money laundering.

An official statement by the Swiss Federal Office of Justice said the six FIFA officials have received millions of dollars over the years for crimes set up and organized from the US (the Boggart Blog bookies is refusing to take bets on Sepp Blatter being one of them), with American banks involved in the payments. The crimes reportedly go all the way back to the early 1990s.

“The bribery suspects – representatives of sports media and sports promotion firms – are alleged to have been involved in schemes to make payments to the soccer functionaries – delegates of FIFA and other functionaries of FIFA sub-organizations – totaling more than US$100 million,” the Swiss Federal Office of Justice said in a statement. “In return, it is believed that they received media, marketing, and sponsorship rights in connection with soccer tournaments in Latin America.

“The US Attorney’s Office for the Eastern District of New York is investigating these individuals on suspicion of the acceptance of bribes and kickbacks between the early 1990s and the present day,” sources in the USA revealed.

In an update on the investigation, the Swiss Attorney-General’s office says electronic and other information and documents were seized from FIFA headquarters as part of the investigation.

I’m all for this, lets go back to the days when Saturday was football day and it was inconceivable that the entire Premiership programme would be cancelled because England had a midweek friendly match with Faroe Islands or somewhere.

Police Investigate South Thanet Constituency Election.

Guido Fawkes put up a bizarre post yesterday afternoon which due to more pressing matters I did not follow up right away.

Now I know the lefties will start screeching ‘conspiracy theory’ but we should be aware the police have confirm.ed this story has substance.

Kent Police have launched an investigation into alleged electoral fraud in South Thanet

Updates from Kent police say they have found no evidence ‘so far’ of malpractice but enquiries are ongoing. The police also confirmed that the complaint which launched the investigation was not made by UKIP.

It is thought the complaint arises from questions about why the South Thanet count was six hours late in beginning, a delay some sources speculate was due to several ballot boxes going missing en route to the count.

The story was given a comic elementby the gurning, idiotic posh boy Alistair (Al) Murray, whose protrayal of a working class pub landlord is surely the greatest insult to the English working class ever, and who had opposed UKIPs Nigel Farage, trying to claim that UKIP had attempted to rig the election themselves.

Another Kick In The Bollocks For Warmageddonists And CAGWARTS*

* CAGWARTS – Carbon – driven Anthropogenic Global Warming Alternative Reality Trolls.

global warming science

I’ve had many arguments with the Warmageddonists, the people who have been saying that the ‘scientific consensus’ had agreed if we did not shut down all coal, oil and gas related activites (that is, just about all human activities except unprotected sex and sleeping) the earth was going to turn into a giant furnace and we would all burn.

Those of us audacious enough to ask when this was going to happen felt the horizon shifting. When the scaremongering first started, the deadline for frying was “after dinner”. Then it go to “Tomorrow …… or the day after tomorrow perhaps,” then “next year”, “before 2050,” and eventually “soon.”

Don’t you love that scientific precision.

The reason the Warmageddonists and CAGWARTS could not give a sensible answer of course was that the scientists were studying computer models of reality and worse, they were changing the fictitious data they put in when the algorithms did not give the answer they wanted. In the real world, rather than warming like a fire someone has dumped a few gallons of petrol on, the earth ws warming a tiny little bit, just as it always has.

What’s more while the Warmageddonists screamed “the science is settled” and insisted that “97% of scientists agree global warming is happening faster than the models predict and will wipe out man, beast and beetroot if we do not stop living NOW!

There was no such scientific consensus, the study cited as proof of it had falsified the figures by looking at a lot of climate studies and simly assuming any that did not specifically state climate change was NOT being caused by carbon dioxide emissions from human activity agreed with that proposition that it was.

In fact most of those studies did not even look for causes but at likely effects.

The purported but ridiculous derogatory term “climate deniers” was invented to belittle people intelligent enough to question the dodgy science on which the Warmageddon scare was based, although none f the sceptics had ever tried to deny that there is a climate (there are in fact many, depending on what part of the world you are in).

But all the while as the Warmageddionists screamed “scientific consensus and demanded a one million per cent tax be put on everything their puritanical left wing prejudices dictated was not polititically correct, sensible researchers were looking at many possible causes of the changes in climate that have happened in cycles for billions of years. Like this one:

Scientists: Orbital Variations Main Cause of Climate Change

Global warming theorists have taken yet another hit with a new study out of Denmark which demonstrates that variations in Earth’s orbit are the primary causes of climate change, and have been for at least the last 1.4 billion years.

Scientists from the University of Southern Denmark and the China National Petroleum Corporation investigated marine sediment from the Xiamaling Formation in China and determined that the sediment shows evidence that “the same orbital forcing that caused the climate to change 1.4 billion years ago is the underlying force behind global warming today,

The research, published in PNAS (Proceedings Of The National Academy Of Sciences Of The United Stastes Of America), states: “There is a wealth of evidence pointing to dramatic short-term climate change on Earth over the last few million years. Much of this climate change is driven by variations of Earth’s orbit around the Sun with characteristic frequencies known as Milankovitch cycles.”

The fact that the research has been published exposes the lying nature of the Warmageddonist lobby. They have always argued that no respectable scientific journal would publish any research that did not support the consensus because “The Science Is Settled”.

Facebook pays zero tax again as government announces clampdown on benefit fraud

He wonders why the governments financial agencies are always to eager to go after small time tax avoidance (which is not actually illegal) and benefit fraud and yet year after year turn a blind eye to the blatant criminality of global corporations in their tax evasion techniques.

Scottish Referendum Vote Rigging Scandal Goes Mainstream

Just over a week ago we mentioned that the almost inevitable complaints about electoral fraud in the Scottish Independence Referendum were starting to emerge. There was plenty to arouse suspicion about the vote, not least the huge margin by which the No campaign won after waging the most inept election campaign ever and when the final opinion polls taken only a few days before the vote showed Yes and No almost inseaparable, momentum having been with the yes campaign for several months.

The Inevitable Claims That The Scottish Vote was Rigged Are Gathering Momentum

Still, I was happy the Scots were staying with us and so did not follow up on the early rumours. FFS, if the Scots had left the UK the price of Malt Whisky could have rocketed and Osborne might have decided deep fried Mars Bars are a luxury food and taxed them.

The story went quiet for a while but has now re-emerged in mainstream media, with American magazine Newsweek running a story about claims that thousands of uncounted yes votes have been found in a bin.

It’s no surprise that there are rumours of jiggery pokery when you consider what happening with referendums on EU integration in France, The Netherlands and Ireland and the hushed up allegations of widespread abuse of the postal votes system in British elections. There is now no such thing as a fair election in the free world, the war on democracy started with scaremongering propaganda and the invention of threats to national security but it looks as if there are no lenghs to which the establishment will not go to maintain control.

The powers that be were never going to allow the UK to break up, to do so would strengthen the claims of Catalonia and the Basque region in Spain, Corsica and the Languedoc in France and the Lombard League in Italy amonst others. Belgium would split in half and many other nation states would fragment.

The big push from the corporate / political complex is for ever bigger superstates, not the balkanisation of the entire planet. Civil disobedience is going to be the only answer.

The Bastards Are At It Again – New MPs Expenses Fiddle Cover Up

In what the inimitable Guido Fawkes at Order-Order blog calls a flagrant attack on transparency and a clear attempt to cover up and keep secret the names of MPs accused of wrongdoing“, the IPSA (ironically called Independent Parliamentary Standards Authority) chair Ian Kennedy has decreed that “an MP could suffer unfair reputational damage” if the public knew they were facing an expenses investigation, ruling that the “publication of an allegation” should be prevented.

The sinister document claims “public interest in transparency must be balanced with operational needs and fairness”, concluding: “we believe that the operational and reputational damage to MPs which could be caused by the publication of allegations in advance of a substantive investigation outweighs the benefits of release.”

Guido makes a very good point about the new inquiry into MP’s expenses claims, and its plan to not name names which was quietly announced during the noise of Tory conference. He says:

“IPSA has launched a public consultation on the insidious proposals, inviting the thoughts of voters on whether or not they should be allowed to know if their MP is suspected of being a crook. They have already been condemned by Alistair Graham, former chairman of the Committee on Standards and Public Life, as retrograde, foolish and perverse”.

You can read the document here and email a submission to the consultation here “complianceofficerconsultation@parliamentarystandards.org.uk”

New proposals from the parliamentary expenses watchdog to keep secret the names of MPs facing investigation for fiddling their expenses will, we anticipate, refer only to “The Hon Member Of Duck Island” or “The Hon Member for Dredged Moat Castle”.
