Today in the Times Patrick O'Flynn says what I, Del and many others have said for many years about Farage's UKIP cult/party. Here is how Guido Fawkes reports O'Flynn's comments
UKIP’s Patrick O’Flynn has declared war on Nigel Farage on the front page of his favourite newspaper, the Times. O’Flynn says Farage is no longer “cheerful, ebullient, cheeky, daring” and has become “snarling, thin-skinned and aggressive”:
“What’s happened since Thursday night, Friday morning has certainly laid us open to the charge that this looks like an absolutist monarchy or a personality cult. I don’t think that even Nigel would say it’s been the most glorious chapter of his leadership. The team around Nigel himself need to reflect why it was that Thanet voted in a Ukip council but didn’t vote in Nigel as the MP for Thanet South.”
O’Flynn blames Farage’s “aggressive” and “inexperienced” aides, blaming a “Tea Party, ultra-aggressive American influence”.
O'Flynn is telling the truth and coming just after the Carswell argument it is now clear that Farage is losing control of UKIP
There is a persistent leak from the NEC telling the truth about the cult. There has to be a leadership contest.
