Lead Welsh UKIP candidates squabble amongst themselves

Near open warfare broke out amongst lead UKIP candidates yesterday after their Welsh leader, Nathan Gill told a BBC 'Ask the Leader' event that he would probably not have chosen Neil Hamilton and fellow ex-Tory MP Mark Reckless as UKIP candidates in Wales.

His remarks provoked a response from Christine Hamilton, the wife of the party's number one candidate in Mid and West Wales, who accused Gill of acting like a "third-rate general". She tweeted: "Only a 3rd rate General would diss his crack troops on the eve of battle."

The use of the phrase 'crack troops' is most probably over-generous but it is an interesting way to run an election campaign.

I think Oscar Wilde's observation on the death of Little Nell is appropriate - 'It would take a heart of stone not to laugh.'
