UKIP members have told their workmates that their lives will probably be spared come the day of ultimate victory.
The party’s activists informed their colleagues that although their names are on a list it did not necessarily mean that they were in danger.
Martin Bishop, member 12758 from Hatfield, said: “I do feel a little bit sorry for them, but I can’t protect them all.
“For instance Janet, who works in personnel, is sometimes a bit short with me. This morning I made a point of standing in front of her and making sure that she could see that I was writing her name in my little book.
“Hopefully that will be enough to change her attitude towards me. If not then there will come a day when she will simply not arrive for work.
“And then everyone will know how important I am.”
Helen Archer, from Peterborough, said: “I know Nigel Farage’s doctor’s cousin so I could probably pull a few strings. I really like my hairdresser so I wouldn’t want her to disappear.
“But as I say to everyone, ‘just go along with it and everything will be fine’.”
