Farage attempt to discredit defector backfires on party
“The Times revealed last May that several employees at Zouk Tea Bar & Grill had been arrested over suspected immigration offences. Mr Bashir then registered his resignation as a director at Companies House, but backdated the record of resignation to a month before the incident.
Ukip claims that it was only later that it came to believe Mr Bashir had “told fibs”. However, the party has known the sequence of events since the publication of the original article.
