Not a good start for Lord Pearson. He has only been leader for a couple of days and already the media are turning their sights on him.
An old story resurrected by the Guardian for obvious reasons:
The insurance business that made the fortune of the new leader of the UK Independence party (Ukip) is embroiled in an international bribery scandal that could lead to criminal charges in the UK, according to documents obtained by the Observer.
But the company itself will face no penalty if the prosecution succeeds; it has been disposed of to another insurance broker since the scandal broke, and the rump of PWS which holds the liability for any fine or penalty is in liquidation and without funds.
