Kilroy-Silk revealed that UKIP will have as much money as they need in order to fight at least 44 marginal seats. They also promise not to stand against any candidate who supports withdrawal from Europe.
He told a Press Gallery lunch today: " I have personally been promised all the money I need to fight every marginal seat in thecountry. We have the money to set up offices, agents, campaigns when I decide to press the button."
However, Kilroy-Silk refused to divulge the source of the funding, though Paul Sykes, a Yorkshire businessman, was the key donor in the European elections in June.
