Standard are slipping...
Several hundred words and no mention that the UKIP leader at the time was called Dick Braine?
A lawsuit alleging that ex-UKIP leader Richard Braine took part in blackmail and data breaches has been all but thrown out of the High Court as a judge said it was "without any proper and sound evidential foundation". The case was brought after a collapse in internal party discipline late last year led to a comical merry-go- …
I hope that in 10 years or so, we can get past the financial debacle they (and the likes of Boris) have led us into.
Sadly the likes of Farage will keep on popping his head above the parapet sticking his nose into things he knows nowt about. Perhaps we should send him to Barelona and not let him back?

I suspect that this rump of UKIP were just the tools and footsoldiers that Farage used to spread his pernicious message. Once he (and his mysterious backers) got what they wanted, he dropped them like the dross they are.
After all, he's not a paragon of morals and integrity either - becoming an MEP, not bothering to turn up unless he could guarentee that there would be TV cameras and accepting an MEP's pension even though he despised the EU Parliament and all it stood for. At its best it's it's hypocracy.
I don't think Tim Worstall was ever a staffer. I think he was a freelance, brought in for occasional pieces. But he's not appeared on here in a while, and I don't think he's been involved with UKIP for years.
Soon after Farage took over as leader, UKIP pretty much became a one-man band. Which of course meant they were stuffed, after he left.
