Former Director of Communications for UKIP, Mark Croucher, has contributed a few extra facts to the discussions around Saint Nikki of Meriden and her cowardly attack on Nigel Farage and Annabelle Fuller in the EU Parliament.
It turns out that Nikki Sinclaire applied for a number of paid jobs in the party, including Director and Deputy Director of Communications and was turned down for all of them. One of the jobs she applied for was given to Annabelle Fuller instead and this is believed to be the source of her dislike for Fuller.
Croucher explains why Nikki Sinclaire wasn't given a job in the party:
Regarding Ms Sinclaire, she was an unsuccessful applicant for the position at the time, just as she was an unsuccessful applicant for my then position, for Clive Page's position, and for a number of other paid roles within UKIP. Her subsequent actions, her on-going bitterness and abrasive personality, her arrest for expenses fraud and her association with members of the far-right including those on paid positions on her current staff have proved that our decision with regards to Ms Sinclaire were correct.
Sinclaire was not interviewed for the position as we only bothered to interview candidates with some ability. There is little point in employing as a press officer a person who could have an argument in an empty house.
