The long-running farce over Tom Wise's suspension from UKIP continues. Mr Wise, lest we forget, is currently under investigation for alleged misuse of public money to the tune of around £35k and was suspended from the party by the UKIP NEC in February this year. However, he did not go quietly, criticising the decision which he asserted was "not lawful or binding". Now it appears, that UKIP agrees, stating that (and you've gotta love the quote from the "UKIP spokesman"): "Tom Wise has been unsuspended pending a disciplinary hearing".
This is brilliant, but it gets better. According to the Luton on Sunday, UKIP officials expect Mr Wise to be officially suspended from the party following a disciplinary hearing set to happen in the next couple of weeks!
Sheer genius! UKIP really couldn't run a piss up in a brewery.
