Former UKIP leadership rival alleges more un-Wise sleaze

The magnificently barmy contributors to the Democracy Forum have been in fine form in recent weeks. It’s always fun to see how jaw-droppingly detached from reality these people are – especially as a number of the contributors are UKIP officials or work for UKIP in the European Parliament.

One recent thread started with reports that Tom Wise had been taken ill with contributors taking the opportunity to, in uncharitable UKIP style, stick the boot in and share their two cents worth on the investigations into his alleged embezzling of funds from his assistance allowance.

The delightfully bonkers David Noakes, himself a former UKIP leadership candidate, claims that “Tom Wise frauduently claimed a total of £180,000 for an assistant, and instead used the money for himself. A small part of it, for example, he used to buy a car. All of that was illegal and criminal. Tom Wise has had the UKIP whip suspended because he was embezzling, as GC, given how close he is, well knows.”

Carefully chosen words!

But it goes on, with Noakes alleging that: “Tom Wise has wasted a fabulously powerful position as an MEP with which he could have made real progress against the EU.”

He's betrayed tens of thousands of UKIPpers, is at last suspended from UKIP as an embezzler, but his misdeeds against UKIP are legion, like taking UKIP's wine distribution system and the membership list (breaking the Data Protection Act) and using it for private profit, and he has admitted committing fraud.

He is the worst of an appalling bunch of UKIP MEP's, living off the fat of the EU gravy train. His glutton's lifestyle at our expense is responsible for his deteriorating health.”

Now David Noakes may have a history of making outlandish claims but these are serious allegations.

Is Tom Wise going to take legal action or are do these claims have even an ounce of truth. I think we should be told

David Noakes, Democracy Forum, England Expects. Can we have a competition to see who can find the looniest/saddest UKIP-related website? I know one that made me choke on my sandwich with laughter the other day.

How come the protest against the reform treaty at the European Parliament last week was led by an obscure Conservative MEP. Does Nigel only lead from somewhere in his imagination?

There is one called More to life than shoes which has got to be not only the worst UKIP-supporting site but the worst site generally. Badly written, aimless, silly, giggly. It is so bad it could be written by a UKIP MEP (is it?).

That one is so bad it's good. Absolutely ludicrous. I think it is the one that got very worked up about the BBC presenter David Dimblebey not being friendly enough to Nigel. Hilarious.

It is certainly the only blog that is posted from a computer bought at the Early Learning Centre.

More to Life than Shoes is the best "can't handle comment" blogsite in the world. Trying to understand its garbled ramblings is difficult enough but dare criticise it and you will get a torrent of foul-mouthed abuse. Great fun especially considering it is apparently scribbled by someone very close to the madcap centre of UKIP. Can anyone guess the name?

I'll vote for More to Life than Shoes as the looniest/saddest UKIP-related blogsite anyday.

More to life than shoes is written by Annabelle Fuller, I believe - rumoured to have enjoyed the attentions of a certain Mr Farage....
