Click here to read Stuart Wheeler agreeing with every thing I and numerous others have said about Farage's limited electoral appeal:
This was obvious since the first day I met Farage some 8 years ago. He is toxic to any referendum campaign seeking over 50% of the vote. Wheeler is a realist pointing out he was forced out of IGIndex, the spread betting company he founded since when the company has gone from strength to strength. The same won't hold or UKIP as Farage has got rid of all his strong UKIP successors but this does not matter as UKIP has gone as far as it can. Its the refendum now that maaters and that needs more better people than UKIP has. Thats the parallel with IGIndex.
