UKIP leader Nigel Farage feels that his party is not passing the ‘credibility test,’ in the latest round of leaked confidential minutes, obtained by a national newspaper.

According to the report, the minutes state: “NF (Nigel Farage) thinks we cannot talk about council tax cuts and spending more on policing etc. all at the same time. We are setting ourselves up for a fall.

The news comes just 24 hours after the party’s high flying policy chief Tim Aker was sacked for failing to progress the UKIP manifesto beyond a series of bullet points. The hostile briefing against Aker branded him an intellectual lightweight, and was designed to undermine his potential ambitions as a future leader of the party.

UKIP deputy Chairwoman Suzanne Evans has recently stepped in to take over Aker’s role as manifesto tsar.
