Gary Cartwright: Nigel Farage's scapegoat

You will recall that ex-UKIP member and long time activist Gary Cartwright was apparently amused to learn, in a bar in Brussels, that he has been officially identified as "Junius". His ex-colleagues have been instructed not to have any contact with him.

This probably came as no surprise to him, as it is not the first time he has taken the blame when things go wrong in the Fuhrer bunker.

Some time ago he was blamed by Farage and David Lott (pictured above) for leaking details of Annabelle Fuller's sacking to Greg Lance-Watkins. He did a bit of investigating and learnt that GLW and another discussed this matter before he even knew of Fuller's departure. In fact, at that time only two people apart from Fuller knew anything at all about this - Farage and Lott themselves!

He was then sacked for supposedly selling the Sunday Times a story concerning the employment of Farage's son. He apparently has an affidavit from the Times clearing his name, but Farage never gave him any chance to defend himself, and to this day has not had the courage to look him in the eye. Having secured the dismissal, Farage then ran around telling everybody that he had evidence that it was actually Roger Knapman who had passed the story to the press.

Other dismissals quickly followed, and a police investigation into the hacking into of two staff members computers is still open.

Cartwright was also one of two people accused by UKIP's answer to Forrest Gump, Ralph Atkinson, of shopping Gawain Towler to the News of the World.
