I only get the Times when Waitrose gives me one for free. Today's had 3 full pages demolishing Farage and UKIP wriiten by two of their very best journalists Rachel Sylvester and Alice Thomson. The Times does not allow free internet access but the main headings gives the flavour with Farage labelled Toad of Toad Hall.
"Insiders reveal how party is run by the cult of one personality", Rupert is pinching my lines!
"He looks like a 1950s insurance salesman"
"UKIP is hinged on Nigel's very commplicated personal life. There is very little room to professionalise anything. There are skeletons in his closet. Nigel is dragging Highgate Cemetery behind him."
A former member of the NEC, not me although I agree with this comment,
"I feel that Nigel is the absolute dictator. He keeps himself surrounded by people who are fairly weak and willl bow to his foreceful personality. In UKIP you are either with Nigel or you are out"
Alan Sked is quoted , " Everyone thinks he is a nice character but he's a complete disaster - intellectuallly and morally. He say he is worried about fruitcakes but I think he's one himself. He's turned UKIP into his own fiefdom"
Nigel isn't very bright. When he was a candidate for Salisbury , I used to get letters saying, " I am glad your candidate (Farage) believes in education but until he learns to spell I am not going to vote for him"
And it goes on and on with the same I have made for years but this the Times and Murdoch. Farage has made a serious, vindicitive and powerful enemy.
