Summer loving, had me a small chat with the police

Amid the excitement (well minor interest), farce and toys-from-pram throwing of the UKIP selection process, it is easy to forget the heroics of the established MEPs who have bumbled along at their usual standard over the summer months.

First, there was Jeffrey Titford, who had to have a little chat with the police over the summer following allegations of "financial irregularities". The News of the World reported that the complaint came from none other than UKIP's Chairman in Ipswich and East Suffolk. Oh dear.

Second point of vague interest, possibly, is the ramblings of Godfrey Bloom. Back in 2004, Godfrey was UKIP's premier hotshot gobshite, spouting all sorts of offensive nonsense to the delight of the media. Of course since then, others elected alongside him have spent time in jail, been investigated by Olaf and generally behaved rather worse than merely waffling away like the pub bore.

In fact, UKIPwatch is struggling to find the motivation to post Bloom's recent thoughts on green energy. They were predictable and wrong. Is this the best Godders really can do these days? Come on Godders, raise your game. Some of us are waiting to be offended.

I stumbled upon your unfortunate website by accident and your ridicule is laughable!

Here's some juicy hot news from the UKIP National Conference. 'We are ready to fight' the June 2009 european elections and disillusioned socialists are firmly in UKIP's sights. These elections will represent the Referendum we were all denied!

UKIP has just held its last party conference. By this time next year it will be lucky if it still has a single MEP and it certainly won't have the financial wherewithall to mimic the main partys' conferences. The conference this year has been pay per view civil war anyway. Goodbye and good riddance.

"parties'" of course, not "partys'". Please tell me I'm not becoming like them.

Poor old UKIP. It seems a list is in circulation which speculates on which senior members will leave next.

I wouldn't worry about UKIP's future just yet. No point in shaking your heads and tutting. They are the 4th largest British political party and not far behind lib-dibs. Also, this business of financial irregularities is alleged... not proven. For something to be 'alleged' someone simply has to say it. So if I say 'black is white' then I am making that allegation... does not mean it is true by any stretch of the imagination. Furthermore, but only from what I can recall of this story when it was actually current the financial irregularities were over something incredibly minor and nothing near as bad as some of the ‘irregularities’ going on in the big parties. It was also just a question of where money spend was sourced from or that it was not spent on what it should've been spent on... Some silly sort of technicality like that. Absolutely nothing like the sort of thing Labour and lord cashpoint would be getting up to. They are far worse by a long way... This was a long time ago and my memory of the original story when it first came out is a bit cloudy but I believe it was something like spending money from Europe on local election campaigning or something like that. This is just storm in a teacup stuff and simply an excuse to publish headlines saying ‘Financial irregularities in UKIP’ – etc, etc...

I have not read Godfrey Blooms comments but I guess if the organisers of this website object to what he was saying and have proof that it is nonsense then I'll bet he was saying global warming isn't man made and we can't do anything to stop it and that ice is getting thicker in some parts of the world and that temperatures have been dropping for the last 5 years so we're not warming up anyway, etc, etc... and the evidence to say that none of this is true is evidence from scientists looking after their research budgets who say whatever the government want... there is a council of scientists that all promote this global warming stuff as if it's really happening and the total truth... they have all agreed in advance that they will do this and are paid by the government. These are the people who get on the telly and into the newspapers. There are a few scientists that don't have the same vested interests and are happy to point out the technical flaws in all the theories as they won't lose their jobs or livelyhoods for telling the truth.

Fourth largest British political party? Hardly.

Who's bigger?

Well if we take the London election just about everyone.

what if we don't take the London election?

Then we are out of date.

Take any election in the last few years and it is quite obvious that UKIP is a long way from its claim to be the 4th largest party in the UK. One MP (elected as a Tory), a handful of local councillors at best and a dwindling band of MEPs hardly puts the Fruitcake Alliance anywhere near just behind the Lib-Dems. 4th largest? 14th or 40th would be more like it.
