UKIP Crawley in Disarray.

UKIP's outgoing Chairman Lee Gilroy and Council Candidate Simon Darroch

UKIP in Crawley have lost their front man, Lee Gilroy, after the Chairman sensationally announced he is going to quit his post, TBG can reveal.

Tory turncoat Gilroy says he has stepped down so he can, "Concentrate on his business and other activities". However, it is rumoured Gilroy was told last Friday he couldn't be parliamentary candidate, "so he has thrown his toys out of the pram", according to one source.

Gilroy told local rag Crawley News - "I took on the role as acting chairman in 2013 and have enjoyed the role and it's been interesting.

"I believe that an AGM will be held now and a new chairman will be elected along with a committee."

TBG understands that UKIP in Crawley may struggle to create a committee due to low membership.

The only known active member of the UKIP branch, Simon Darroch, is set to run for a spot on the council in October after fellow 'Kipper & another Tory turncoat Karl Williamson also recently quit his local position as UKIP's only councillor. Darroch is also widely tipped to take over from Lee Gilroy as UKIP Crawley Chairman.

Darroch has been the subject of much scrutiny amongst the Crawley population after posts on his Facebook account entertain conspiracies such as whether Flight MH17 was downed by Western intelligence agencies. And the sharing of yet more posts by the racist organisation Britain First.

I am aware that Simon Darroch is going to be the new Parliamentary Candidate for Crawley and John MacCanna is going to be the new Chairman of Crawley UKIP.

I have been informed that Lee Gilroy has rejoined the Conservative Party.

Its important to establish the facts first. I will also be taking up the role of Treasurer a position stolen from me by Alison Burke the wife of the Conservative Councillor.

What is going on with Lee Gilroy's 'Join UKIP Crawley' Facebook page? There had been no activity since the May elections. It was then unavailable from last Friday night until Tuesday when it came back on, only to be unavailable again since last night?

Its interesting that he states he has been doing window cleaning for four years - has he registered with companies house? Wonder if he has forgotten to tell the tax man, like he does to pay his debts?

Again the commenter under the name John Mac Canna is not me and someone is impersonating me and Peter Brent. My membership has lapsed this week and I have no intention of rejoining or becoming the chair for Crawley ukip.

I wonder if she pays tax on the men she takes to her back shed and massages

Chris Oxlade said...

Looks like Gilroy is impersonating people again. He's well known for this as well as not paying his debts or his employees.

"Cllr" Simon Darroch is a funny fella. He will bomb in the Southgate election. The ukip vote is falling and we've seen no ukip leaflets at all.

On the same day UKIP was winning Clacton by a landslide and nearly winning in Heywood and Middleton, the basketcase of UKIP Crawley continued with a council by-election.

Southgate ward May 2014:

Labour 888 (35.1%)
Conservative 823 (32.5%)
UKIP 590 (23.3%)
Independent 228 (9.0%)

Southgate by-election Oct 2014:

Labour 733 (-155 votes) 44.1% (+9.0) 17.5% of May vote lost.

Conservative 642 (-181 votes) 38.6% (+6.1%) 22.0% of May vote lost.

UKIP 271 (-313 votes) 16.7% (-6.3%) 53.1% of May vote lost.

Justice 10 votes. 0.6% (did not stand in May)

UKIP lost over half their votes since May and saw their vote share fall by a third (6.3%) despite their being no Independent candidate. Labour and Conservative vote shares were sharply up.

How can a Britain First loving racist who just lost over half the UKIP vote in a by-election be fantastic? Maybe compared to that CCJ-defaulter and tax-dodger Gilroy he's fantastic, but to anyone else, Darroch is a utter joke.

Simion lost but he lost in an onourable way. He did really well and congratualtions to the vicar who was Labour then Lib dem then Labour then Labour again. Its not the winning its the taking part that counts and simion has taken part in at least 10 elctions now and not won. So well done for trying Simion duurok

Dear All

As is obvious I wrote an article to the papers that seemed to condem Bob. And a couple of people have described this as malicious and disgraceful and as usual the councillors have all gathered together to protect themselves from what appears to be an outside attack. But nobody has bothered to ask me why I've done it. What were my reasons ? No instead you've made a snap judgement and decided to punish me in another way by not allowing me to get on the candidates list.
So you only lead me to believe that you are complicit in what Bobs been doing or your not interested and have turned a blind eye to what's been going on in case your not selected for chair or cabinet or you loose one of those positions. Which is all sounding a bit CQC and makes you morally corrupt.

So now I'm going to fill you in briefly starting with the mayors inauguration.
Firstly I had an invite so for Bob L to throw me out was completely unacceptable and the way he did it was to. Getting his secretary to do it. And then trying to hide himself from me by hiding behind more woman.
Anyway I left. Bob had humiliated me but also the Conservative party and me staying would have made me look like the person who ruined Bob Burgesses night and I didn't it was Bob Lanzer.

So I went into town and waited for others to join me. We met in the jubilee oak and Bob had also tagged along. To cut along story short.
We all kept our wits about us but Bob was absolutely trollied couldnt standup.
In the club we went into I prevented his laptop bag being stolen three times
When we left the club Bob couldn't stand up and it was I that prevented him falling flat on his face and had to hold him up because he couldn't walk. And aren't I the person he threw out of the town hall ? What the he'll am I doing helping him.

Can you imagine if his laptop bag had been stolen with all that information on it.
We then headed for a taxi and while we waited I leaned bob against a post. Someone then said that Bob should at the very least apologise to me for earlier and thank me for him coming to no harm.
He did apologise but went further and said sorry for the vendetta he's had against me for the last two years and then confessed his love for Karl.
I asked him to elaborate and he said he had used his influence as leader to get me barred from meetings and places and done what he could to trash my reputation within the group and the townhall.
What I have put up with is -
He's also stolen my business plans and ideas and either buried them or taken credit for them
He's had me blocked from being invited to functions held by the gatwick diamond and other business forums

He became detrimental to the well being of my election campaign last year because he didn't want me to become a councillor and nor did a few others.
He banned me from group meetings and got Sally to ban me from the mayors parlour and on both occasions not one of you said or did anything in support of me. Because you fear Bob demoting or not promoting you into higher positions.

So for me Bob has been a nightmare and his confession in front of others I wasn't going to do nothing about.
I made a complaint to the association and the party board before Karls sexual harrassment complaint who responded by asking the Chairman to ask Bob to stand down. If he did done that no one would be any the wiser about anything. Him stepping down would have made the papers so I decided to write a complimentary story about Bob standing down because of fatigue and that would have been the end of it. Bob the group and the party wouldn't have been damaged and now it would have all been chip paper. Even bob was surprised and grateful for the story.
But then the group stepped in and started offering bob advice on how he should fight it without having any idea about the complaints that had been filed and the reasons why and bob stupidly did take up that advice knowing the story that had been written.
Alot of people have said I've been malicious but I havent. Not only am I the victim in the first place but I stopped bobs laptop going missing stopped him from cracking his skull open on the pavement carried him to the taxi and the wrote a nice cover story
The real problem came when a member of the group seeing my story on line on the Monday decided to phone up and tell the truth to the press and went with the sexual harassment story prompting bob to dismiss my story and defend the harassment
Now that's malicious and it came from group a member who was recently demoted from cabinet and was looking to jump on other people's bandwagon to get at Bob. I know who that member is and three members of the press and two members of group have confirmed what I know. If you want that name I'll give it to you.
So there you have it the actual truth. Not rumour or speculation
1 don't throw smelly mud around until you know the facts
2 contact me directly if you have an issue with me. I'm tired of rumor and speculation

And I'm not going anywhere. You won't get rid of me.
My loyalty is to the party the association area Henry Cchq and David Cameron where as councillors that don't behave can be de selected or voted out or worse.
Better for me to be in the tent peeing out rather than the other way around.

Last night's UKIP AGM saw Simon Darroch unanimously elected as Chairman of Crawley UKIP. The votes were 1 for with 0 against and 0 abstentions.

It is not only Crawley UKIP who love Britain First and share their facebook posts. Some of the local Tories like Jan Tarrant do it as well.

I like how it is big news in the Crawley News and TBG when a UKIP candidate shares Britain First post on Facebook, but when a Tory candidate does it, no one bats an eyelid

Is Duncan Crow still being investigated by the police for Sexual Activity in Cowdray Forrest

Anonymous said...

Has anyone investigated the teddy bear picnic story with a prostitute concerning the Leader of Crawley Conservatives. Photos are circulating featuring an amazing picnic scene. These are held by the local paper

Anonymous said...

Is this the same Duncan Crow who forced out Crawleys only Asian Councillor and then Crawleys first ever Black Councillor. Then force out a young Gay Councillor. Seems a closet Racist and Homosexual. Do you have to be Gay or Racist to join the CRAWLEY Conservatives
