Nigel Farage, the former leader of UKIP, has been fined £35,000 after being found guilty of mis-spending EU money. The European Parliament investigation found that Nigel Farage had employed a member of staff who was then not employed entirely on dealing with EU matters, which was a requirement of the funding.
The EU auditor discovered the discrepancy in Nigel Farage’s claims, but Farage said to the Daily Mail:
“It is guilty until proven innocent, they can do whatever they like. Since Brexit they are just being vindictive”.
