The travails of UKIP

Not exactly an impartial source, but my spies tell me it is "about right".

Hardly worth recording, so irrelevant has UKIP become, but it is interesting to note that the circulation of a public letter to the press is being planned. This, we are told, will bear the signatures of over 50 prominent UKIP members and will be highly critical of Nigel Farage, demanding his resignation as leader. It will even suggest a public debate, where Farage will be invited to answer charges over his leadership.

So embarrassed is Tim Congdon, the leading economist – who is cited by UKIP as its "economics advisor" - that he declines to mention the party, before the media, in relation to its stance on the EU’s regulation of the City.
