David Lott's words on the Ashford Operation 18/10/03

A reminder of the UKIP Chairman's third attempt at an explanation (all blogged here on 19th October, 2003) of what the Party Treasurer has now uncovered as a totally rogue operation, being run by Nigel Farage who it is plain lied to the NEC. This e-mail quite clearly shows in our view that David Lott had a pretty good idea of just what was being perpetrated. If he did not he should be dismissed for incompetence:-

I will reply for the last time and certainly not to threats or 'charges' that you could not bring yourself to make in public. .....

At the last NEC I took the lead with initially some opposition because telesales in London was draining money from the party. I urged the NEC to vote to close it down. They agreed and it is now closed. I shall recommend that all telesales operations in future are stand alone and that the party is indemnified against loss. Ashford is currently at worst cash neutral but is getting a good return from the advert and with the research being done will produce much more. Much of the return will go to national coffers which will improve the cash flow. (Our emphasis, this statement clearly needs further investigation!)

I helped raise money to get us out of an immediate short term difficulty and am engaged in an exercise with an a properly qualified accountant working with John de Roeck to reach a fuller understanding of the head office financial operation. The figures that we had to work on in the past did not reveal at all clearly where we stood financially. Once that analysis is done the appropriate action will be taken according to well defined priorities.

As I wrote all is under control and in addition being thoroughly analysed but I cannot spell out all the ins and outs of every single aspect of my job which is truly massive and conducted by me with no secretarial support whatsoever.
