The UKIP leader has been forced into issuing another rebuttal as regards claims he might have abused EU expenses.
Farage is alleging that the allegations are a "politically motivated attack".
Now where has TBG heard that before?
The Electoral Commission has said it is to write to UKIP for "clarification" about Mr Farage's constituency office.
The Times said Mr Farage received £15,500 a year to run the small office near Bognor Regis - but it had been provided rent-free by UKIP supporters.
The Electoral Commission's records suggest the property, a converted grain store, has not been declared since 2004 when two donations totalling £1,100 were registered.
TBG understands that the office in question was run by of Farage's personal assistants and former Havant Chairman Steve Crowther before he became the National Party Chairman and the party's Prospective Parliamentary Candidate for North Devon recently.
Another leading figure closely linked to the office is the Leader of UKIP on Hampshire County Council, the Leigh Park and Bedhampton Councillor Ray Finch.
As a former constituent of both Simon Danczuk and Sinead Clarkson in the Borough of Rochdale I am absolutely appalled at her breathtaking attitude towards Britain's benefits system.
For Simon Danczuk to ask "What planet is this woman on" though is not just an understatement but also blatant hypocrisy considering what Labour did to the benefits system when it was in power.
The sad fact of the matter is that under Labour it was the 'in thing' for female youngsters to go out and get pregnant as early as possible in life so as to cash in on the benefits system.
Thankfully, the coalition have introduced a benefits cap to crack down on this sort of thing but I believe more can be done.
If people cannot afford to pay for the upkeep of children then they should be taken away and considered for adoption in order to help childless couples from going through costly fertility treatment.
After all, was it not Simon Danczuk's Labour Party who spent so much money on so called 'sex education', plus free issuing of the pill and condoms on the NHS was it not?
Fat lot of good that did!
At the end of the day what this case exposes is a blatant waste tax payer's money by people deliberately taking advantage of the benefits system and it should be stopped as soon as possible.

Seems as though all hell has broken loose at UKIP in the North West.
Yesterday they sent an internal email to all members and branches begging for cash, which was subsequently leaked to and published by TBG.
Today they are telling members to ignore and discard it because, "it was sent in error and was not authorised by the Office of Paul Nuttall MEP".
TORY Councillor Luke Stubbs has taken part in a TBG Q&A with roving reporter Geoff Brooking. Stubbs is Councillor and Conservative Candidate for Eastney and Craneswater in Portsmouth South.
What did you eat at breakfast?
"Crumpets with marmalade washed down with tea and apple juice."
So, what’s it like standing for an election again?
"Elections are incredibly time consuming. With 10000 electors and over 5000 front doors in my ward, campaigning is a lot of work. It’s all quite exciting though, particularly as I am in a marginal seat."
How do you plan to continue to represent Eastney and Craneswater?
"To continue to campaign on local issues and to continue to push for Portsmouth City Council to be leaner and more responsive. An effective opposition can influence an administration. An effective ward councillor can get things done in his patch."
What’s your favourite fizzy pop beverage?
"Diet coke, although I don’t much like the normal sugary coke. I live mostly on tea, fruit juice and beer though."
Do you have any further aspirations within the Tory party?
"Only to see a Conservative majority on Portsmouth City Council."

UKIP in the North West of England may be in dire financial trouble and want branches to hand over their cash, TBG can exclusively reveal.
UKIP's deputy leader Paul Nuttall MEP has sent an internal email, leaked to TBG, to all branches in the North West of England appealing to all UKIP branches to loan ALL AVAILABLE BRANCH FUNDS to the region. This is said to help pay the cost of EU Election addresses believed to cost a whopping £40,000.
Nuttall says that - "This loan is guaranteed to be paid back to the branches before Xmas 2014."
The EU election address goes to each household in the North West and is a vital tool for spreading the UKIP message for all our EU and Local Council candidates on 22nd May.
Members were earlier told to contact the North West Regional Office on Telephone number 01524 387690 to give cash loans.
[UPDATE] UKIP U-Turn On Branch Cash Loans
