An assistant to Nigel Farage is pictured in the party’s new manifesto posing as a regular voter, without mentioning she’s a paid UKIP staffer.
A big picture of Lizzy Vaid features on page five of the party’s new European election manifesto – naming her as “Lizzy Vaid, Devon” – alongside a quote which reads:
“I’ll be voting UKIP because they’re the only party listening to what people want”
But the new face of UKIP isn’t so much a regular UKIP voter as the party’s events manager and an assistant to Nigel Farage, based in the party’s Mayfair office.
Sources tell Scrapbook she also appeared in literature during the Wythenshawe and Sale East by-election without reference to her job – and she’s due to appear in UKIP’s next party election broadcast.
Can UKIP not find a single real, grassroots voter to appear in their literature?
