Farage in the EP

I hear there's been a minor implosion within UKIP with an attack on Farage by Andreasen. The BNP is also afflicted with leadership problems and the English Democrats seem to be concerned by an influx of ex-BNP supporters. Even the Libertarians have had their in-fighting and today an Independent candidate defected to the Conservatives, only four days after the by-election.
