Despite the troubles, LPUK will always have my support

I have only recently joined the Libertarian Party, so I am not entirely involved in the history which has led to some accusations being made against its leader, Andrew Withers. I only know one side of the story, and that is the side which has made such accusations which I do not wish to dwell…

AGM venue announced (LPUK AGM)

It is for the sake of completeness only that I note that Andrew Withers has announced the venue for the LPUK annual general meeting. This meeting is not recommended even for the brave of heart. Party AGM 24th March 2012 10am Committee Room 2 Clevedon Town Council 44 Old Street Clevedon North Somerset Membership Card…

Meeting with Nic Coome

The Southwark Drinks were attended last night by Nic Coome, who is registered with the EC as chairman of the Libertarian Party UK. The party is currenlty split with a rump of legally registered officers and the NCC’s appointees claiming the same posts. We’d heard from Tim Carpenter for the NCC as he lives locally, but it was the first time anyone from the rump had come to London to talk to activists.

LPUK Blogspot revived?

As if things couldn’t get any weirder after Simon’s last post on the matter, the old LPUK blogspot site has now been revived with a notice that was posted Monday 25th July stating the following: For the past three months the Libertarian Party of the United Kingdom has been unable to have a say on…

Leader designate still working on SGM vote

I’ve learnt that Tim Carpenter, the NCC’s appointed interim for party leader, is continuing to work on a plan to hold an SGM and a valid vote on appointments and reforms. Given the fact that Andrew Withers is simultaneously leading the same party in another direction one imagines this is fraught with difficulties.

Does Withers want to go it alone?

Ian Parker-Joseph’s new company is hosting a website, at libertarianpartyuk.com with a PayPal button inviting members to donate to the “Libertarian Party” and renew memberships. The site gives an unfamiliar address at Gemini Business Centre in Brighton. The NCC is not presently in control of all the Party’s known bank accounts so where this money…

LPUK.org is dead

Ken Ferguson explains, over at Outspoken Rabbit: Withers … tried to have the party de-registered with the Electoral Commission. Having failed in this, he turned his attention to the website, not targeting those members brave enough to publicly call him out for what he had done, but threatening the person in whose name the domain…

NCC agrees SGM agenda outline

I have been passed the following message for publication: Dear member, I hope you forgive me for contacting you all again in this manner, but am writing to you today to let you know that I, as promised, did call an NCC meeting. This meeting had the sole purpose to vote for announcing and then…

Source: Simon F refusing to handle membership enquries

Simon Fawthrop is now directing membership enquiries to Andrew Withers, referencing the fact that he (Simon) has stepped down as membership co-ordinator. Of course, this now means Mr Withers is in a position of great (in fact total) responsibility. Given what Andrew has been accused of, it requires an enormous amount of trust to believe…

Tim Carpenter calls for an SGM

In a message to emailed members, and available online, Tim Carpenter has announced his intention to call an SGM: This meeting is essential, in my view, as the Leader, Chair and Treasurer have resigned without and still refusing to sign over replacements as per Electoral Law, and so these posts should, in my view, be…
