UKIP seem rather sore about Nigel Farage's placing in the Top 100 Influential people on the Right list. They are even talking about suing me or the Telegraph for what I wrote, as they think it is borderline libellous. I'm almost splitting my sides at the prospect. Here's what we wrote...
48. NIGEL FARAGE MEP Leader, United Kingdom Independence Party
Charismatic and unfailingly ebullient, Farage was seen as the man to take UKIP onto the next stage. Instead, he’s presided over a Party that has leaked members, is virtually bankrupt and failed in its stated aim to attract large numbers of Tories disaffected by Cameron’s soft approach to hard core issues. If Farage was doing well, he’d be in the top thirty on this list.
Devil's Kitchen has had a right go HERE. Well, they used to have 27,000 members. They have well publicised financial troubles and have failed to attract a large number of Tories over to them.
There were many on our judging panel who thought he shouldn't have even made the Top 100, let alone the Top 50. So if I were a UKIP supporter, I think I'd quit while I was ahead and thank me for even including Farage in the list in the first place. Trouble is, they're so infantile that they can't see the bigger picture.
