UKIP: Farage, Nuttall and Marta Andreasen

It seems that UKIP's leadership cannot get their stories coordinated about Marta Andreasen's resignation as treasurer, so what chance organising a coherent campaigning political party? Nigel Farage now says:
"....Marta has a big job here and in the UK and that's really why she's gone."

That's according to this report on the BBC news website. Of course by 'here' he means tucked up in the splendour of Brussels and Strasbourg.

That does not coincide with Marta Andreasen's reason given to The Times:

“I resigned because I disagree with how the party is being managed at the level of the chairmanship,”

I always checked my watch was still there if I was unfortunate enough to have to shake Farage's hand, so I know who I believe.

Does Farage REALLY think we are that stupid?

Marta Andreasen has already publicly stated her reasons for resigning. Perhaps someone should tell Nigel that lying to the BBC is not exactly a very wise move!

I think he does think we, or they, are that stupid.

He got away with it for so long but my feeling is that he has seen the writing on the wall. That TV interview on Friday was Farage minus the cockiness, I think he is about to be properly rumbled and knows it.
