Members of the NEC are now claiming that they did not receive a written copy of Mr Merchants report on the MEP selection/election process. They argue that as they did not get the report it could not have been sent to Greg Lance-Watkins by a member of the NEC. This has been done in order to suggest that Piers is the source of the leak. This is, of course, pure nonsense. I can assure you all that Mr Merchant is not the leak.
The NEC has been leaking for years. But is it so surprising that it leaks like a sieve? There are still good men and women in UKIP who are not prepared to tolerate corruption, dishonesty and deceit. Farage and Nuttall need to realise that their days are numbered. Tyrants never prosper. They will soon face their Waterloo.
