Nigel Farage calls for Douglas Carswell to be expelled from Ukip
Former leader’s claim that Clacton MP is trying to damage party comes amid row over Carswell’s remarks about honour bid
Former Ukip leader Malcolm Pearson initially attempted to organise a peerage for Farage but then switched to lobby instead for a knighthood when it became apparent he would have had to quit as an MEP in order to take up any seat in the Lords. After the bid was rejected he asked Carswell to approach the chief whip, Gavin Williamson, to appeal against the decision.
In an email from 31 December leaked to the Telegraph, Carswell wrote to the peer: “As promised, I did speak to the government chief whip. Perhaps we might try angling to get Nigel an OBE next time round? For services to headline writers? An MBE, maybe? Let’s discuss.”
Farage insisted the exchanges reveal his Ukip colleague was “consumed with jealousy and a desire to hurt me” and called on the current leader, Paul Nuttall, to expel him.
