Marta Andersen - UKIP’s very own Vicar of Bray - was surprisingly frank in a very recent chat with a British MEP. I will give you a clue as to the MEP’s identity - don’t look beyond Watford!
During the conversation she revealed that her relationship with Farage was “difficult”. She also revealed that her views on reforming the EU had not changed since joining UKIP.
