As you can imaging Nigel was furious when he found out. He quickly called a political committee meeting - Paul Nuttall admitted at the Ugley meeting that this committee keeps no minutes, has no agenda and meets when Farage feels like it. Towler was summoned to London and was asked THREE times by Nigel if there was anything else he should know about the allegations posted on the Towler’s blog. Gawain prevaricated but finally said no. Farage then overturned the decision made by the South West Committee.
Farage’s stupidity is absolutely amazing! He knows that a copy of the original allegation is in the possession of a Tory MEP. Several journalists in Brussels also have a copy and it is rumoured that the BNP have a copy. It is almost certain that these allegations will resurface during the election.
Nigel may hope that this will damage Trevor Colman’s chances of getting elected in the South West.
However, Nigel seems strangely oblivious to the fact that the allegations - if they do resurface - will damage the whole Party and undoubtedly wreck UKIP.
Is Nigel just blinded by hatred of Colman or does he really no longer care what happens to UKIP?
Has Farage adopted the motto ‘After me the deluge’?
