Second quote of the day 2nd April 2016
"That is clearly the strand of thinking at the top."
"They're not particularly interested in winning the referendum and they'd rather replicate the SNP scenario which is lose the primary objective of the party but create such a sense of grievance you win in the polls and do rather well."
(Words attributed by the BBC to an anonymous "UKIP politician" expressing concern at the direction Nigel Farage and Arron Banks appear to be taking the party and the conduct of the party's contribution to the referendum campaign.)
