Trouble at the top of UKIP as Farage refuses to campaign with Nuttall

Nigel Farage is refusing to do any more campaigning for Ukip in the Stoke Central by-election after falling out with the new leader’s closest advisor, Huff Post UK has learned.

Farage last week appeared at a rally in Stoke to support Paul Nuttall’s bid to win the seat from Labour, but was furious to discover a Ukip member who had made a series of allegations about him was helping to run the event.

Lisa Duffy – who unsuccessfully stood to be party leader last summer – was secretly recorded by her campaign manager making claims about Farage’s personal life, which became the basis of a controversial book about Ukip.

Farage is considering suing Duffy over her comments, and was appalled to see her at the Victoria Hall in Stoke on February 6 when he addressed hundreds of local residents.

A source close to the former Ukip leader says he holds Patrick O’Flynn – Nuttall’s closest advisor – responsible for Duffy’s involvement.

    Gosh! I presumed reading the headline Farage wan’t supporting Nuttall because of his Hillsborough lies! But no: an associate of Nuttall’s once said something about Nigel (true or false) he didn’t like, so he’s thrown a tanTrump!

    Makes me wonder exactly what some people see in the odious individuals. Like “Sven Wraight” when I first read the headline I assumed it would be all about Nuttall’s blatant lies about Hillsborough, but no, it seems Farage doesn’t mind the atrocious dishonesty, its just a clash of nasty personalities.
