Who was at the meeting from the NEC?
How many of those present were elected members and how many like Crowther were Farage nominees and placemen?
Perhaps Michael Crick is the man to ask these questions.
Who is the NEC mole? I remember a similar NEC mole hunt 5 years ago when the sycos went off barking up the wrong tree. The leak was down to the usual UKIP sycophant's incompetence but this time there is a real mole on the NEC, Tinker Tailor etc
Short money, according to Wikepedia
| "is to provide additional support for the Opposition parties in Parliament — support which they certainly require if they are to play their full part here".|
So it belongs and will be spent at the absolute discretion of the parliamentary party ie Carswell.
It does not belong to Farages UKIP cult.
