Ukip has never exactly been the most liked party, but things are getting quite personal.

The founder of the party, Alan Sked, wrote a scathing letter to the Times today criticising Nigel Farage.

Sked, who left the party in 1997, complains of how ‘it took Farage some time to control the party and ruin its reputation’.

He also blames the leader for still having not become an MP, after 15 years of trying, and for having already lost one of his Tory defectors – Mark Reckless, who lost his seat on May 8.

The icing on the Eurosceptic cake, however, comes with the sign-off:

‘[Nigel Farage] is becoming the new Nick Griffin of British politics – a far-right failure’.

OUCH.
