It’s been a while since we’ve had any stories about how potty the UK Independence Party is – but this one makes up for lost time.
It’s alleged that UKIP has banned its own media spokesperson from talking to the media.
How do they intend to communicate from now on? Sign language?
It might be diverting on the BBC’s Daily Politics, but hard to justify on Radio 4’s Today programme.
New infighting claims hit Ukip tonight after staff were allegedly ordered to ban their own media spokesman from speaking to the media.
Suzanne Evans, who wrote the party’s 2015 election manifesto, is said to have enraged Nigel Farage when she admitted he was ‘divisive’ in a TV interview.
Ms Evans, who survived a bloodbath of Ukip officials after Farage ‘unresigned’ following his election defeat, made the comments at lunchtime today on the BBC’s Daily Politics.
