Lott's Reaction to the Daily Mail Ad Questions

Posted overnight on an internet discussion group was further correspondence on the serious questions of how UKIP money is gathered, spent and accounted for within the party. The full letter querying these matters was blogged first thing this morning and may be read from this
link here or by scrolling down to the post immediately below.

Herewith David Lott's almost unbelievable responses to the extremely grave matters and questions raised in the letter:-

Date: Fri, 17 Oct 2003 20:13:31 +0100
From: "david lott"
Subject: Re: Daily Mail Advert - Important Message to Party Chairman

You should have raised these points at the conference **** and I would have dealt with them very swiftly in the presence of the donor.

The advert is raising our profile, raising money for the party centrally, and fuelling more adverts. That will bring votes. You heard me at conference on the subject of judgement and votes so did the party at large and they thoroughly agreed especially on the subject of unity, together with
loudly applauding the donor and his charming wife.


To which the letter writer then replied:-

Subject: Re: Daily Mail Advert - Important Message to Party Chairman


I sincerely hope that is not your final word and considered response on this subject. It certainly does not amount to an answer, and I can respond equally decisively to the remarks you just made - not least being that conference is hardly the time to go into such detailed matters.

Lott then tried this equally fatuous sounding and impractical retort:-

Date: Sat, 18 Oct 2003 11:23:22 +0100
From: "david lott"
it was the time and the place, it was an AGM and that is what they are for. I will brief the NEC on the spectacular success of this project and our future plans for it at the appropriate time at the next meeting. I was elected to the NEC appointed to be chairman and endorsed by the NEC I will do my job delivering as much success as possible will you please do yours and get out there and start galvanising your area as I am galvanising the party.

The final response we have from the letter sender and in this series, follows below. This has been edited slightly to remove certain personal details but the sense remains intact:-

>Date: Sat, 18 Oct 2003 13:23:16 +0100


I did not become aware of the issues behind the Daily Mail ad at the time of the AGM. Anyhow, the AGM is not the time and place for such detailed discussions. The detailed work must be looked at by those who understand the issues in full. Only after such investigation may the findings then be put before a conference for discussion and comment, and only then once members have had ample opportunity to consider the matters.

Also, I will work hard for the Party, along with the many others that work hard. During the last Euro elections, I campaigned and ....(edited).

But I will not work hard when my efforts to raise money can be so readily squandered by the actions of some well-intentioned, but misguided individuals. Safeguards and financial controls are critical. That seems obvious to me.

Once again, please respond to the charges made. If you have no detailed response, then you must realise that I can only assume the worst. If you wish to speak about the matter, I am certain we can arrange a time to do so.
