UKIP put all their eggs in the Farage basket. I remember Sausages Gill ex Tory MP telling me how wonderful Farage was but as a BoE old hand I knew the importance of hedging your bets. Egged on by the likes of Gill and the Farage worshipping, self seeking cabal UKIP have not hedged their position. If Farage goes then so does UKIP and all the poor shafted members of UKIP go as well.
The media including the BBC know this are moving in for the kill. Hence the Farage and Annabelle Fuller story was a main item on last nights 10 pm news. The Daily Mail kept the story running today as did the Daily Telegraph and the Times. Farage has denied he had an affair with Fuller but its the Sun jounos he should be worried about. They will be out waving their cheque book to break Farage's story if they can. They usually succeed.
UKIP members have been conned and believe Farage can walk on water. They are going to find out soon he can't. The denoument may come during the Clegg debate with some interesting info finding its way to the Clegg camp.
