Spin Doctor Halts Farage v O'Brien Interview

Friday 16th May 2014

James O'Brien's final question to Nigel Farage in the pair's live studio debate was interrupted by Ukip's Director of Communications.

While James was in the middle of asking Mr Farage a question about his expenses - Patrick O'Flynn burst into the LBC studio and said "Sorry, we had an agreement about timing and you've massively overrun."

Mr Farage seemed unbothered, waving Mr O'Flynn away, determined to finish his answer.

He continued to say, when James O'brien asked if he would submit to a full audit of his expenses, "There are no expenses - these are fixed rate allowances which I've spent in accordance with the law."

"I'm very suspicious of the term 'audit' used in this context" he added.
