However, the main beef of the Telegraph's snide and rather deperate article is this.
Donations of less than £5,000 to any party's head office and those of less than £1,000 to a regional office do not need to be declared. All major parties receive funds below these thresholds, but Ukip appears to have received a disproportionately high amount of "below the radar" donations.
Of course, what this means is that the people who are members of UKIP still throw money into a bucket (as I saw at the Uckfield rally this weekend). At a time when the Tories are trying to cap donations at £50,000, UKIP doesn't have to worry: the vast majority of our donations come from people who can donate only the price of a hi-fi, or a month's heating, or a new frock. And yet, "Fuckface" d'Ancona, the most boring man on the planet, considers this to be a stick with which to beat UKIP. Is it jealousy?
The LibLabCon Parties have their big businessmen; UKIP don't. I consider this a virtue: Matthew d'Ancona's Telegraph thinks it's wrong. But he's a fucking cuntwipe.
