IAN-BUCHANANOut of all the parliamentary candidates standing in the Brighton Kemptown constituency in 2015, Ian Buchanan has been the most silent.

  • Simon Kirby is busy getting his team to write letters to NHS England to pressure them into making a decision on the future of the Eaton Place surgery.
  • Nancy Platts is busy calling on Conservative MP’s to vote to save fire-fighter pensions.
  • Davy Jones is busy hosting his weekly radio show on Free Brighton Radio.
  • Joe Neilson is busy building an alliance of interested parties against labour, Conservative and the Green party combined.

kirby-outside-hospitalAs of today with only 119 days to go to the May 7th election, you would have thought we would have heard more from him. Though digging deeper into whom Ian Buchanan is and what he stands for, we get an idea of why he’s keeping such a low profile.

With no election campaign website, anyone who wants to know about Ian Buchanan must go to the East Sussex Gov UK site to find out more about him.

Once you get there, it makes for uncomfortable reading and answers the question why he’s keeping such a low profile.

Right off we learn he earns his money from property rentals being a multiple landlord.

Now while not every landlord is a bad person, we know from experience that land-lords are more often than not- bad people.

Being a multiple landlord implies he’s packing in as many residents he can into as few properties as possible, to extract the maximum rental potential.

We will only find out what kind of landlord he is once we talk to his paying residents. While I’m sure every property meets the standards of adequate fire precaution, cleanliness and safely, it’s still unclear whether his residents are private or DSS funded.

All too often we hear horror stories about multiple landlords. The exploits of Brighton’s most notorious landlord, Nicolas Van Hoogstraten is still fresh in everybody’s mind. Then of-course we have Mark Slade aka Marcel Sulc, who puts Nicolas Van Hoogstraten to shame with his empire of multiple properties in Hastings and beyond.

(Its worthy of note that Parliament had to bring in new laws to counter-act the criminal (but yet perfectly legal) practices of Mark Slade. See www.318.20m.com/26.htm)

We know from public knowledge that the leader of Brighton’s Conservative Party, fellow multiple landlord Geoffrey Theobald OBE, had dealings with the notorious Nicolas Van Hoogstraten; it isn’t too much of a stretch of imagination to imply Ian Buchanan may have had similar dealings with very dodgy characters.


The question is asked, as required by Section 30 of the Localism Act 2011, and other interests, as required by the Council’s code of conduct “any body one of whose principal purposes includes the influence of public opinion or policy (including any political party or trade union):”

To which Ian Buchanan answers:

  • Mason
  • Knight Templar
  • UK Independence Party

We know from the official Knight Templar website (www.knight-templar.org.uk) that Knight Templar’s follow the highest chivalric ideals of the medieval Order of Knights Templar which was founded by Hugh de Payens in 1119.

It’s all very well that men should exhibit bravery, courtesy, honour and gallantry towards women. I expect millions of men do so with being a Knight Templar.

Who are the Knight Templar’s really? We know that the Queen is subservient to the Order of the Garter, of which all her family are members. The Pope past and present are also members.

Suffice to say both Freemasons and Knight Templar’s are deeply smeared with controversy following allegations of satanic practises and child-abuse.

As the picture at the top of the page asks, do we really want our public representatives pledging allegiance to arcane organizations above and beyond allegiance to the constituents they are elected to serve?

My answer is a resounding “NO,” though I am interested in hearing yours.


It would seem for all intents and purposes that Ian Buchanan is happy to take a back seat and rely on the popularity of the UKIP leader Nigel Farage to get him into power.

It’s easy to hold onto the coat-tails of nationalism. Being a Knight Templar and a follower of Hugh de Payens, it’ll be interesting whether Ian Buchanan is aware of ancient British history and that the legendary King Arthur II was in fact a real historical figure.

The Plantagenet Royal family who ruled for 245 years from 1154-1399 are famed to have modelled their Kingdom on the golden Arthurian era. The point I’m trying to make is that if you want to get all patriotic, it’s very easy to do so.

British history has a wealth of patriotism to hang on to. Though the fact UKIP are exploiting the patriotism expressed over 21st Century immigration is an indication that UKIP is nothing more that the far-right wing of the Conservative party.



Following in the footsteps of Conservative MP’s Mark Reckless and Douglas Carswell defection to UKIP, local Moulsecoomb Labour councillor Leigh Farrow has jumped on the band wagon and done the same.

The reaction of the local community should be a warning to all UKIP defectors that UKIP under the leadership of Nigel Farage isn’t all its cracked up to be.

farrowposter-smallPeople aren’t stupid, they can see through the façade of UKIP nationalism and see a nasty political party of the same ilk as the Conservative party hell-bent on the privatisation of the NHS, austerity and the continuing bashing of the poor and vulnerable to cover-up for own in competency and failures in government.

It’s always somebody else’s fault when it comes to the Conservative and UKIP parties. Blame the:

  • The Poor
  • The Disabled
  • The Elderly
  • The Nurses
  • The Police
  • The Fire-men
  • The Immigrants
  • The Labour Party
  • The Muslims
  • The Single Mothers
