UKIP: Bloom continues to make an ass of himself while Agnew turns up to lobby for the NFU

In his comment on being fined 2000 euros for shouting a Nazi slogan, Bloom referred to being 'docked his lunch money'.

Yorkshire and the Humber region - for which Godfrey Bloom is an MEP - has a high unemployment rate. We wonder what his constituents will make of his total contempt for the taxpayers who have to fund his 'lunch money' ?

From The European Voice:

Another fine mess

UKIP MEP gets hit in the wallet.

Godfrey Bloom, a member of the European Parliament for the UK Independence Party, was given a €2,100 fine by Jerzy Buzek, the Parliament's president, on Monday (13 December). It was punishment for having shouted a Nazi slogan at Martin Schulz, the leader of the Socialists and Democrats group.

Buzek told the Parliament: “Given that Mr Bloom declined to apologise for his words, I have decided...to withhold seven days of allowances from Mr Bloom.”

Bloom was unrepentant and said that he would appeal against the punishment. “If they think docking my lunch-money will stop me speaking out on behalf of my constituents' welfare, they have another thing coming,” he said.

Bloom is the second UKIP MEP to be fined this year. Nigel Farage, the leader of the UKIP delegation, was fined €3,000 by Buzek in March for having compared Herman Van Rompuy, president of the European Council, to a “damp rag”.

As a fundraising stunt, UKIP is selling special “damp rag” tea towels emblazoned with an image of Van Rompuy for £5.

Orders are shipped only within the UK and it is up to the purchaser to make them damp. Never let it be said that UKIP is troubled by the niceties of common courtesy.

Stuart Agnew still lobbying for the NFU

We note that only Nikki Sinclaire, Mike Nattrass and Stuart Agnew could be bothered to attend today's European Parliament.

Agnew - who now advertises himself as an EFD MEP - was there to bitch about the European Commission's ban on battery cages for laying hens.

It is nice to know that Agnew is still very keen to lobby on behalf of the NFU. But how much are they paying him?

Agnew was once famously described by Farage as being "as thick as sh*t but he has money".

Stuart Agnew is currently under OLAF investigation for misusing his allowances to pay Peter Reeve, a UKIP regional organiser. See: LINK
