UKIP PPCs Betrayed

Lord Pearson, urging voters not to vote for their UKIP PPC, has betrayed them all.

No further explanation is required but listening to the wonderful Eva Cassidys version of the following song, I thought it the perfect lament with such fitting lyrics for all UKIP PPCs caught up in the death thoes of UKIP.


There you go and baby here am I
Well you left me here so I could sit and cry
Well golly gee what have you done to me
Well I guess it doesn't matter anymore

Do you remember baby last September
How you held me tight each and every night
Well whoops-a-daisy how you drove me crazy
But I guess it doesn't matter any more

There's no use in me a-cryin'
I've done everything and now I'm sick of trying
I've thrown away my nights,
and wasted all my days over you

Well you go your way and I'll go mine
Now and forever 'till the end of time
I'll find somebody new and baby
We'll say we're through and you won't matter any more

You won't matter any more

What sad times we live in!

Leaked Document: UKIP General Election Strategy 2010


To ensure that UKIP is seen to be unelectable in the forthcoming General Election
To promote the shared vision of Lord Pearson and Nigel Farage to keep UKIP as a Tory pressure group and keep their rich Tory mates in the Westminister boys club
To promote membership of UKIP to tory anti-EU members thereby relieving the Tory party of their troublesome members
To line the pockets of Nigel Farage and a few self seeking sycophants

Strategic Context

To ensure the continued success of the Tory party within Europe by ridding them of their anti-EU members
Use party as a vehicle to ensure Nigel and friends take up all the benefits the EU has to offer, for instance 2nd pensions and massive allowances, whilst ensuring their families are also paid handsome allowances


To rid the party of anyone who has a backbone, who will question where all the money goes to or who will not do what Nigel tells them to do
To ensure any media interest shows the party in the worst possible light
To ensure that as little as possible progress is made during the General Election and Nigels Tory mates keep their seats.

Agreed Actions to acheive strategy

Lord Pearson to announce UKIP Strategy (unknown to UKIP PPCs) of not voting for UKIP. This is to be presented as voting for Eurosceptic MPs regardless of party
Ensure a healthy smattering of barking mad PPCs, especially those that latch on to conspiracy theories and will damage UKIPs credibility in the General Election
Get rid of Nikki Sinclair. She wants Britain to leave the EU.
Lord Pearson to promise support for Nikki Sinclair, who wants to leave the EFD, that she can remain a UKIP MEP. Then we renege on the deal and kick her out (she's only a woman anyway).
Get a barking mad UKIP candidate to stand against her (we need further discussion on how we justify this alongside the policy of not standing against Eurosceptics for any other party)
Ensure any UKIP policies don't stand up to scrutiny e.g. pledge vast spending cuts whilst saying how money will be pumped into NHS, police, defence etc.

Question Time with Rosie

As debates and interviews with the 3 main parties are currently all the rage in the media, I thought I would host my own question time, so who better to start with, than Gregg himself.

Here are his answers:

1. What made you enter politics?

Believing I could make a difference. Growing up in the 1970s most of us thought we could do better than that shower, and that remains true today.

2. How did you form your beliefs?

A family that respects our nation's traditions and values without being cringingly patriotic helped. Being educated by Roman Catholics also helped, first Franciscans then Xaverian Brothers, they imbued a great sense of duty and tolerance while encouraging individuality. Then John Gingell introduced me to JS Mill, thank you, that opened so many avenues.

3. What is your main political philosophy?

Let people get on with their lives and mostly they will be fine. Don't push me around and I won't push you around. In a nutshell, Libertarian.

4. What do you admire in a politician?

Not a lot! Seriously, I admire honesty and an acceptance that none of us are right all the time, especially politicians.

5. What do you despise in a politician?

Hypocrisy and overuse of hackneyed phrases such as: "You couldn't get a cigarette paper between them" or: "It's time for change"..

6.Why did you join UKIP ?

I loathe state interference and the EU is the most disastrous incarnation of 'the state'. Let's make our own mistakes, then rectify them.

7. Why did you leave UKIP?

MEPs had gone native. They stopped taking UK elections seriously and still only become excited at EU election time. The leadership are small minded, petty non-entities surrounded by similar. People have asked why I didn't stay and fight. My answer is that my conscience is worth more than the salary of an MEP and UKIP is finished, it's no more than a vehicle for Farage and his cronies. The fact that their candidate in Meriden wears a t-shirt stating: "Masturbation Is Not Illegal" just about sums UKIP up sadly. Just google Barry Allcock UKIP, it's a giggle.

8. Biggest regret?

Upon leaving UKIP? None, I found it highly liberating.

9. You're now working with Nikki Sinclair - how does that compare to your time in UKIP?

No comparison. She is fighting in the UK the way I hoped other MEPs would, but they never did. There is a great team here in Meriden having a great time. That team included Clive Page until this week, we had a good time but Clive has been forced to move on now, or has chosen to move on. Shame because we all got on well. Having said that he told us last week that he felt that things were happening, from UKIP, that he was being kept in the dark about. Then he resigned.

So working for Nikki is refreshing and I can only suggest that the decent members of UKIP, the majority, look at the EFD Group in the EU parliament then, hand on heart, tell me that Nikki was wrong. She was absolutely right, and I admire her courage.

10. What do you want for dinner on Saturday night?

Anything but bloody curry!! Although............

Thanks Gregg but I 'm still waiting for my lippy back! Jx

A Free Thinking Woman

So that's where my lipstick disappeared to Gregory Beaman!

I just couldn't resist putting this wonderful picture of you in my first post, as I'm a little peeved that you keep taking all the credit for being Rosie.

Mark Croucher, on his Skeptyk blog, has started the Gregg is Rosie rumour again, presumably because he has heard you are now working for a woman (lordy be - another woman with a mind, how can they have had two of those in UKIP?).

Here's a sample quote from the woman hating Skeptyk

"In keeping with his desire to hide behind a skirt by using the name 'Rosie', Beaman chose to put the blame squarely on his wife's shoulders, who he said acted independently of him, "

Mmm, now as Mark is a regular on the British Democracy Forum under several psuedonyms, he knows full well that Rosie is not Gregg and that I posted on the same Forum under my correct name to confirm that I am Rosie. And there's the rub.

How dare I, a female, possibly go on a forum without my husbands permission. Of course women are ok in UKIP if they are a nodding donkey, up for a bit of adultery or even if they are a Latvian Pole dancer, but a free thinker, well, that just cannot be tolerated. The comment 'who he said acted independently of him' reveals all - to believe that a woman, in Skepyks view, can act independently of her husband is just too incredulous to be true for him. Dear oh dear Mark, you really need a break from Nigels company.

I must say I have enjoyed all the merriment Skeptyks blog has given us, revealing how the inner clique (particularly one member - no pun intended) went ballistic and are still reeling from the news that Gregg and Nikki are now working together . Two free thinkers and, good grief, one's a woman. Add to that Gary and Josh - well, poor old Skeptyk has found himself working overtime spinning so fast a lancashire weaver would be proud of him.

So it comes to pass that I have started Rosie's Forum. Will a woman be able to blog? Will I have to ask Greggs permission to blog? Can Gregg confirm on this blog if I have acted independently of him? Am I carrying out enough pole dancing/adultery duties like a good UKIP wife should?

All will be revealed in good time. For now, Gregg is welcome to hide under my skirt but I want that lipstick back or else!
