NEIL HAMILTON and Nigel Farage aren't friends at the best of times so you can imagine the UKIP Leader's fury when he reads this.
TBG can sensationally reveal that the former sleaze king wants to be the party's candidate for the 2015 General Election in the UKIP target seat of Boston and Skegness.
Along with Thanet South, based on in-roads in council elections and on paper it's probably one of UKIP's best hopes especially now that sitting Tory Mark Simmonds announced he's off in 2015 too.
However, TBG has learned of a couple of spanners that may enter the works to stop Hamilton from a sensational return to the frontline.
One is fellow kipper and former Tory Robin Hunter Clarke who has refused to confirm or deny he has applied and another is a good Tory candidate being lined up in the shape and form of local businessman Kelly Smith.
Smith came second in an open primary for Louth and Horncastle recently and the rumour is that as well as one planned for Clacton there's also one coming to Boston and Skegness.

The Liberal Democrats in Portsmouth South last night took a huge risk by selecting Gerald Vernon Jackson (GVJ) as their Prospective Parliamentary Candidate for the 2015 General Election, TBG can reveal.
GVJ, as he is known to colleagues, was selected despite the fact that he and his party are implicated in a number of scandals at the council.
GVJ once accused Mike Hancock's victim of being "in it for the money". He was also Leader of Portsmouth Council when Lib Dems attempted to cover-up the Pascoe Report, and TBG can also reveal that since he left the role over EIGHTY complaints have been made as regards "bullying" at the council when he was Leader.
It's not yet known whether, like GVJ's close friend Lord Rennard, Mike Hancock plans to threaten the party with legal action over the selection or indeed if he plans to stand as an Independent himself so as to qualify for a leaving parachute payment for defeated sitting MPs.
One man who was happy at the move last night though was Cllr Lee Hunt who said GVJ was, "the best candidate".

EXCLUSIVE: Tory Youth Chairman Hails Activists as Carswell & UKIP Set to Face Thousands of Conservatives in Clacton.
UKIP and their newest recruit & Tory MP defector Douglas Carswell are set to receive an almighty Tory backlash at the hands of thousands of Conservative Party activists when #RoadTrip2015 hits the seat of Clacton, after the defection triggered a by-election just months before the General Election, TBG can reveal.
Conservative Future (CF) created a Facebook 'Volunteer Force' Group for Clacton and within just one hour numbers hit 1000 CF members.
The cheeky stage managed move by Farage & Co has managed to cause a ripple effect among activists of Conservative Future, the youth wing of the Tory Party, with over 1,300 energised members signing up in just a few hours to descend on Clacton when the Conservative Party's RoadTrip2015 initiative heads to the constituency before any by-election is held.
TBG understands that the National CF Executive made the group in an attempt to up their social media game. Brand new Conservative Future National Chairman Alexandra Paterson exclusively told TBG - "I'm absolutely delighted that so many CF members have already committed to supporting the Party in Clacton with RoadTrip2015. We need to show that if the British people want to have a say in an EU referendum, have a growing economy and better public services, they need to vote Conservative."
CF Director of External Communications Mahyar Tousi said - "This year, we will be using every possible measure on social media and other platforms to help campaign for the Conservative party. We will make more announcements in the future."

MAHYAR TOUSI has been awarded an integral spot on the new Conservative Future (CF) National Executive as Director of External Communications responsible for media, TBG can sensationally reveal.
In a seeming improvement already from the previous executive, Tousi will lead the way for PR and CF promotion to draw interest from inside & outside the largest youth movement in the UK, Conservative Future, via the website and Twitter accounts which have been sorely & shamefully neglected.
Mahyar Tousi exclusively told TBG - "In youth politics, we’re used to having people with weird titles such as PR and policy strategist. These titles were used to project a facade of successful involvement without doing any work. As someone who has always been against that, I would like to simplify this and focus on what we can do.
"In my role, I’ll be responsible to improve the CF website and our social media presence. Our twitter account has not been as active as other political parties and we have to change that in order to promote our campaign. This year, instead of wasting time holding overly-formal meetings to discuss pointless issues, we are creating a new team of active CFers who will simply get on with the job."
TBG understands that Tousi's role will also include "CF promotional videos" such as those made for the RoadTrip2015 campaign.

RESIGNATIONS have followed the election of #RoadTrip2015 slate member Anthony Harrison as North-West Conservative Future (CF) Chairman, defeating popular incumbent Jonathan Levy, TBG can exclusively reveal.
Area Chairman and Secretary of Cheshire and Wirral have both apparently sensationally resigned in protest at the result in the North-West. Outgoing Chairman Melissa Smillie says an area chairman needs to "have confidence in CF regionally and nationally", clearly she doesn't.
One source from the north-west told TBG they were, "Devastated to have lost an absolutely excellent regional and area chairman in one night."
