UKIPwatcher was amused by the story in last week's Sunday Times alleging that Nigel Farage was employing his wife and his son. Nige has vigorously denied employing his son and threatened to take legal action against the Sunday Times which has, as yet, not retracted the story. Rumours abound that the story may have been fed to the Sunday Times by a maverick U-kipper with an axe to grind with Farage (although UKIPwatcher appreciates that this doesn't narrow things down very much!).
However, the story was particularly surprising to UKIPwatcher as Master Farage is, apparently, such a devoted follower of his father's political career that he is a member of Conservative Future, the youth wing of the Tory party!!!
Notwithstanding the fact that it's distressing for a family to be divided by party politics - it'll be interesting to follow this one and see whether the Times backs down, not least because Farage put in a particularly bombastic performance on Newsnight just three days before the exposé.
