UKIP should Practice what they preach

In a hypocritical move UKIP MEPs this week ignored calls from their leader in the European Parliament, Nigel Farage, to disclose their financial declarations of interest on the Parliament's website.
The MEPs who last week were at the forefront of a censure motion against EU Commission President, Jose Barroso for an alleged conflict of interest, refused to declare their own earnings.
UKIP MEPs Godfrey Bloom, Roger Knapman and John Whittaker have so far failed to post their incomes on the Parliament's website. They stand alongside four other MEPs in the Independence and Democracy group who have also not come clean on their financial income.
