The media are using the minor scuffles at UKIP HQ to try and undermine Nigel Farage. They have invested a lot of time and money buying influence with the old parties and they know that UKIP under Nigel Farage's leadership is the biggest threat to those investments. That's why they were united in attacking UKIP during the election campaign and why they are now united in trying to overthrow him with talk of a coup.
There is no coup.
Under the leadership of Nigel Farage UKIP has gone from a single issue campaign to the undisputed third largest political party in the country. Last year we became the first party in a century other than the Conservative and Labour to win a national election. This year we had our first general election victory and took control of our first local authority.
We owe much of our success to Nigel Farage's leadership and if David Cameron keeps his word and holds a referendum on our membership of the EU in 2017, the victory for the No campaign will be Nigel Farage's crowning glory.
We're backing Nigel Farage, are you?
