UKIP Youth make loss on Christmas party fundraiser.

Attendees included Neil and Christine Hamilton

Young Independence (YI) was decimated this past January during #OllyShambles, but it seems the hash making process began even before Olly Neville was sacked for speaking in support of gay marriage.

UKIP's youth wing, Young Independence held their Christmas party fundraiser on HMS Belfast on December 11th 2012 - with all money donated by members to use towards Party campaigns.

Figures tbg has received from sources state YI made a huge loss of £1.3k on the shindig.

"Spent: £2.5K"
"Return: 1.2K"
"Loss: 1.3K"

Former YI events officer whom stood down by the time the event had to be organised seems to be leveling discord with the new UKIP Youth events officer:

Sources told tbg that UKIP's National Executive Committee candidate and this years candidate for Young Independence Chairman was named as official "YI fundraiser".

Fundraiser? Sean pitched the idea, organised the even, booked it all, and then when it went wrong tried to dump it on other people, he had tied YI into contracts paying far more than the value without any way of getting out, it was an utter disaster, Howlett really damaged YI with that one,

Howlett is the official fundraising officer on the national exec, no wonder Youth Independence's finances are in an utter shambles. The party has been warned so many times about him, he is the biggest embarrassment of any Youth Wing in Britain, I know several CF-ers who were UKIP leaning but put of by him. Best way to keep Tories in the Tory party is to promote him, well done YI!

Sean Howlett is poision to UKIP. I was UKIP leaning until I heard about his doings; slagging off Northern members, personally attacking ex-chairmen and now losing over £1000! I wonder how many YIers will come running back to CF when Howlett is made chair? He was the reason that Olly was pushed out and won't stop until he is in charge... How long before he starts attacking the new YI chair? YI go through chairmen like Chelsea go through managers!

Maybe it is time to do the right thing and stand down, Mr Howlett?

I am yet to meet a fellow YI member who likes this guy. He single handedly got the last election scrapped because of his constant negative campaigning, and thinks so much of himself despite never having done anything of note. I hope he really does run for YI chairman it will be the biggest defeat ever.

Is this the Sean Howlett who threatened to stop speaking to people if they voted for Olly Neville?

Or are there two in Young Independence?

My only experience of Howlett was him screaming that someone was a cunt at a TFA pub quiz. I thought something terrible had happened, he was really yelling.

Turned out he'd found out the person he was talking to was a Tory, what a berk. I'll never join UKIP if people like him are the best they have to offer

Did you see his email last night? I quote "Join me, Nigel Farage - UKIP Party Leader and the team as we hit the ground running... The media will be in attendence on Saturday, so it is very important that we get YI to be seen campaigning hard! "

Who does this guy think he is? What he really means is "I'm going to be there to suck up to Nigel and to get myself on TV as I am the most important person in YI!"

If Sean really is that bad then maybe he should stay away from Eastleigh? You don't want anything to put off other members from going!

Have tbg contacted Sean for a comment?

He should have a chance to tell his side of the story.

@4.25pm - The story is about YI losing money with their party fundraiser - not Mr Howlett. So no side to tell. Money was lost.

@TBG - But Mr Howlett was in charge of the fundraising.
