Nigel Farage has said that he will take a step back from public politics so that he can “get a grip” on Ukip by taking “direct control” of the party.
by Andrew Cave, The Telegraph:
Following criticism from Will Gilpin, Ukip’s former chief executive, Mr Farage said that he will now do “less politics” in a bid to “professionalise” the organisation.
Mr Gilpin, who left this week, said that Mr Farage’s reluctance to accept professional management means the Ukip will remain “a bunch of enthusiastic amateurs” who never fulfil their political potential.
He said that Mr Farage “has to have less power” if Ukip is to become a professional political organisation.
However, in an interview with The Telegraph, Mr Farage said that Mr Gilpin “couldn’t be more wrong”.
