Nigel Farage claims he "will never speak to The Times again"

UKIP leader Nigel Farage has reacted angrily to a story in the The Times today that he is facing an investigation over his expenses as an MEP.

He said in an interview with the BBC that he would not rule out legal action against the paper, adding "I will never speak to The Times again".

UKIP released a statment yesterday in advance of the story addressing each of the allegations. It claimed the story is a politically motivated campaign to discredit the party in the run-up to the European elections next month.
