Yes really. He has been repeatedly asked not to do this.
Let's cut to the chase here; your sub text is to damage UKIP. The EU as you know hates us being there and at the moment is doing all it can to undermine the only true Euro-Realist group from the UK. You also know that in the coming weeks this black-op will begin in earnest and no doubt you will follow this with interest in your own unbiased way.
The bottom line is most UKIP MEPs are stepping down next year and we'll have a fresh team in place.
By all means criticise UKIP but what has happened here is loose change compared to the Tories in Brussels and we dealt with it quickly.
I think you could possible be looking through rose-tinted glasses here. The fact is that this has been going on for years ... I first reported this in October 2005, when it had already been going on for some time, yet Wise is still in the Party. The whip was only withdrawn from him last year and still there has been no disciplinary action against him.
In the circumstances, therefore, I have been relatively restrained about Wise ... I have not mentioned, for example, his rather dubious wine trading business - in which Customs and Excise are taking a very keen interest - and have not dwelt on the role of Farage in the Lindsay Jenkins affair.
And yes, I have reported on Tory MEPs, and will continue to do so. But, while the Tories - so far - have been indulging in some sharp practices, none have been accused of overtly criminal activities, as have been the allegations against Wise. That is not "loose change" - it is a different order of malpractice altogether, and one which is entirely within the remit of EURef to report.
Could it be, therefore, that we are in "shooting the messenger" mode? If you don't want shit spread in the yard, clean out your stables.
