Ukip leader Nigel Farage has fought back at the “immensely privileged” Times journalists who accused him of misusing EU taxpayers cash.

“Perhaps it will not surprise you to know that most have family or personal connections to the Conservative party and that the majority are from immensely privileged backgrounds that have enabled them to prosper as part of the ‘chumocracy’ run by David Cameron,” Ukip said.

Montgomerie’s argument might be undermined by the fact he was previously the editor of the ConservativeHome website and used to be chief of staff for Iain Duncan Smith.
