Is it me or is there something rather sinister about the Electoral Commission winning its appeal against the original fine against UKIP for accepting donations from Alan Bown at a time his name had slipped from the electoral register due to an oversight?
At the time when UKIP was originally taken to court by the Electoral Commission it wanted the total that Mr Bown had donated to be taken a forfeiture, £363,697 in total, in the end the court, realising this was nothing more than a simple error on behalf of Alan Bown and UKIP handed down a fine of £18,481, which was still a substantial amount.
Sadly, the Electoral Commission was not happy with this outcome and appealed, which is where the sinister bit comes in. Why, right at the time when Vaclav Klaus, the Czech President caved in to EU bullying regarding the dreadful Lisbon Treaty, does UKIP get its original fine overturned and the full forfeiture of £363,697 imposed - which means the Government gets its sticky little mits on Alan Bown's money and UKIP is left with the possibility of collapse? Could it be the EU and our Government actually see UKIP as a major threat?
The people of the UK have been well and truly stitched up regarding the EU and the amount of sovereign power given it, for those who really care for their country what else is left but to vote UKIP? If enough do there is always the possibility, albeit a slim possibility, that UKIP could make the next Government of the UK, after all what is the point of voting Tory, Labour or Lib Dim as they all seem quite happy to see Britain taken over by the EU? By now enough people know that a vote for UKIP is a vote for leaving the EU - no spin, no bullshine, no flim-flam - just a simple repeal of the 1972 European Communities Act. Have UKIP scared the powers that be enough they want UKIP closed down?
