UKIP at War

UKIP’s Patrick O’Flynn has declared war on Nigel Farage on the front page of his favourite newspaper, the Times. O’Flynn says Farage is no longer “cheerful, ebullient, cheeky, daring” and has become “snarling, thin-skinned and aggressive”:

“What’s happened since Thursday night, Friday morning has certainly laid us open to the charge that this looks like an absolutist monarchy or a personality cult. I don’t think that even Nigel would say it’s been the most glorious chapter of his leadership. The team around Nigel himself need to reflect why it was that Thanet voted in a Ukip council but didn’t vote in Nigel as the MP for Thanet South.”

O’Flynn blames Farage’s “aggressive” and “inexperienced” aides, blaming a “Tea Party, ultra-aggressive American influence”. One of those aides responds, from America:

Farage and O’Flynn’s relationship has been strained since party conference, where Guido revealed the UKIP leader had been overheard laying into his economics spokesman. Fair to say it has got a lot worse since then…
