Suzanne Evans: Farage Perceived as Divisive Character mdi-fullscreen

Yesterday Farage said he would be “prepared” to lead the ‘Out’ campaign, a view not shared by Suzanne Evans on the Daily Politics this afternoon:

“I think Nigel is a very divisive character in terms of the way he is perceived. He’s not divisive as a person but the way he is perceived is as having strong views that divide people, so in that sense I think he is right, it will actually be somebody else who fronts it.”

The comments have gone down rather badly among Farage’s allies, though it is not a million miles away from what Nige himself has said:

“I suspect what we will see is somebody coming from completely outside of normal politics, somebody from the world of business or entertainment that hasn’t got any political baggage at all. I think someone like that may well emerge.”

Nonetheless, calling a man she has been accused of trying to oust “divisive” on national television is a bold move…

UPDATE: A UKIP insider gets in touch to add:

“It is people going on television calling the leader ‘divisive’ that is divisive.”
