THE McSPURIOUS CLAIMS OF McMONCKTON OF McSCOTLANDSHIRE

Loony right wing Mcnutjob Lord Monckton is, as far as we can discover, no more Scottish than fly in the air. He is from Kent; his father was from Kent and his grandfather was from Kent. The only link he seems to have with Scotland is he has an estate here. Sorry Chris but being an absentee Scottish landlord does not make you “more Scottish than most Scotsmen” (as you recently claimed to be in an STV interview...you remember, the one where you spuriously claimed that Alex Salmond was expelled from the Labour Party for being too left wing!). 

In another tenuous link to Scotland, his McNobleness did try to become an MSP in 2011 standing for UKIP on the Central Scotland and Fife list, coming 7th with 1.1% of the vote. Unfortunately, that doesn't make him more Scottish than the Scots either.
  
What milord seems to be good at is either being a half-wit or a liar. (Case in point being his spurious claim to any link to Scotland.) In this video he claims that the Dunblane Massacre of 1996 took place under a Socialist Government that then introduced knee jerk legislation:
That would be the socialist government of John Major then? 

Interestingly all three shooting rampages that have taken place in the UK have been under Tory Prime Ministers; Hungerford in 1987, Dunblane 1996 and Cumbria in 2010. No doubt in Lord Monckton’s la la land all three PM’s involved are socialists.


I don't recommend that you watch more than a few minutes of the video as milord cod-face manages to put so little feeling or conviction into his right wing anti climate change rant that it quickly becomes more of a tedious boring drone that I'm sure has the interviewer chewing his foot off to get through. Let’s hope the would be journalist is a better motivational writer than he is a speaker or I don't think those climate change fascists down-under have anything to fear other than a surge in membership.
  
Monkton inherited his lordly title after 1999 and is not, by rights, a member of the House of Lords. However, he widely claims that he is in fact a member of the upper house of the UK legislature but without the right to sit or vote. 

The House of Lords authorities, frustrated by more spurious claims (he’s good at them) have taken the unprecedented step of publishing, on the parliamentary website, a “cease and desist” letter to Monkton from the Clerk of the Parliaments. The letter concludes “I am publishing this letter....so that anyone who wishes to check whether you are a member of the House of Lords can view this official confirmation that you are not”.

Monkton, desperate for a seat in the Lords, has stood in four by-elections for vacant seats, created by the death of a sitting hereditary peer. (There are 92 hereditary peers left in the HOL and when one dies they elect another one from among their numbers). 

He has not as yet received a single vote!

  2. Ah estate owner. I wonder if he or any of these estate owners can produce the original title deeds to the property they presume to own. There must be thousands of little bills of sale attached to the original deeds relating to the many people they would have to have purchased small holdings from to create these estates.

    1. Can't find how long he's owned the estate Anon. But I'd welcome any information about it, if you have any knowledge of where I could find out about it.

    5. Maisie: I've found his home in Scotland; Carie Estate at Rannoch...interestingly right next door to that of Lord Pearson, the other Ukip bloke with the pumby English accent, born in Devizes, Wiltshire and a product of Eton College.

      I can't find out how far the connection with Scotland goes back though...

    6. But according to the link you gave me, it is for sale, and the only had it a very short time?

      "The present owners’ predecessors, who bought the estate from the Forestry Commission in the late 20th century, restored the drawing room to create a real luxury home and joined it to two of the cottages to create the foundations of the new Carie House. They also added the bow front and the library wing, and inserted a small conservatory entrance hall between Carie House and Morag’s Cottage so that both houses can be either connected or used separately."

  3. Nutjob but a "well-connected" nutjob. His sister is married to Dominic Lawson (brother of Nigella, son of Nigel) and of course he was previously involved with Thatcher's government.

    1. Yes Anon, apparently he claimed to be Mrs Thatcher's science advisor, strange for a man who read classics at Cambridge and Journalism at Cardiff.

      Wikipedia says:

      Monckton has asserted that he served as science adviser to Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher during his years with the Number 10 Policy Unit, and that "it was I who—on the prime minister's behalf—kept a weather eye on the official science advisers to the government, from the chief scientific adviser downward."[30] However, John Gummer, who was Environment Minister under Thatcher, has said that Monckton was "a bag carrier in Mrs Thatcher's office. And the idea that he advised her on climate change is laughable."[31] Writing in The Guardian, Bob Ward of the Grantham Research Institute on Climate Change and the Environment notes that Thatcher's memoirs, The Downing Street Years, do not mention Monckton and credit George Guise with the role of science advisor.[30].

      I suspect that Monckton lives in a special little world where anything is possible.

    1. Hey you.... who says I'm a malcontent?

      Oh... well OK...

      Anyway, I wouldn't like to be alone in a room with him, and yeah the polis would be an idea. But I'm not sure that I would subject the poor sods to that... It's enough to turn the milk.

      That said, he is entertaining. I mean he completely rewrites history, and it might be more fun the way he tells it... Margaret Thatcher a socialist! Corker!

  7. This is the man who is on record as saying in the 1980s that everyone with HIV / AIDS should be permanently rounded up and interned.

    Additionally he has a filthy record on a whole range of other topics.

    It makes me proud to see Scots voters in Donside tell him to take a run and jump, losing UKIP their deposit in the bargain.

    Restores ones faith in the voters common sense and fair play! I just wish more English voters shared similar egalitarian socially progressive instincts and opposed UKIP hate.

    1. Yes, that was another of his bright ideas. I wonder where he was going to put them; probably on one of our islands.

      But you have a wide choice of daft ideas from this man to choose from if you are looking for a good laugh.

      It does Ukip no credit at all that they seem to have appointed him as their Scottish "boss".

      Still, when you look at the rest of their representatives, it is not particularly surprising!!

  8. I don't think UKIP are interested in Scottish votes, they're only interested in causing a fuss which generates headlines so they can raise their profile elsewhere in these fine islands.

    I suppose we could be charitable and be insulted that they'd foist such a man on Scotland, but to be honest, UKIP have never been, aren't and never will be any where in Scotland.

    Beyond that, would it be cruel to suggest that Farage and Monckton are one and the same? I mean, the latter looks like a caricature of the former - you know - the kind you get drawn on holiday in Spain or France for a laugh?

    4. Actually, I think you are right Pa... They aren't interested in Scotland. It's too much of a mountain to climb, and why bother. You don't need Scotland to run the UK. You need the South east of England and a few other areas.

      They can pick up support in some of the "immigrant heavy" areas of the Midland and the North of England.

      Initially however, both the Tories and Labour are running scared of them and they are setting the agenda and as Alan Bissett said on the video (a few posts ago) they are pulling the whole of politics to the right.

  9. You think that if UKIP want to save a deposit or two in Scotland it might be an idea to actually have a Scotsman in charge of the party in North Britain and no some swivel eyed plumy bam-pot from Kent. This man clearly lives on his own planet. Having this loony English Lord directing the party in Scotland is yet another insult to our intelligence (you see they don’t think we have any! Just booze, heroin, fags or subsidies depending on what class your in).


    He apparently promised Nigel between 6 and 7% and was aiming for the dizzy heights of holding on to his deposit. That’s what he said in his STV interview at least, probably after him, Otto and Otto’s mum had been round the count and seen how few votes UKIP were getting. More likely when Nigel finally found Aberdeen on the map (the first time he looked he mixed it up with Edinburgh) Lord M probably promised him that they would run the Lib Dems into fourth place and getting 16 or 17%. That’s how in touch this Kentish Scotsman is with his fellow Scots (who he is much, much more Scottish than of course).

    1. He apparently said:

      The old discredited political parties understand little of our hard Highland life, and care less. And the numpties in Edinburgh's Parliament of Eunuchs have destroyed our wee bit hill and glen. Taxes and rates rise, public debt soars, but public services wither. Enough is enough. Is this the Brave New Scotland that Europe's SNP poodles maundered on about? Highlandmen, arise! Vote out the snivelling SNP satraps of the stifling European tyranny! Take back your nationhood and your democracy! Vote UKIP with pride!

      As the Guardian said: William Wallace couldn't have put it better himself. It must be reassuring to hear a candidate showing a shared sense of empathy with "our hard Highland life". And coming from a Harrow-educated English aristocrat, too!!!!

      So how does the good lord intend to improve the lives of his prospective constituents? Here are "Christopher's top campaign issues":
