Now even Nigel Farage wants a second Brexit referendum

Now even Nigel Farage wants a second Brexit referendum

But Adams was also appointed to work within the anti-EU UKIP party in Britain as national nominating officer with his salary coming from the EU funds.

Mr Farage, who remains a South East MEP, said that a second vote would kill off opposition to leaving, claiming "the percentage that would vote to leave next time would be very much bigger than it was last time round".

A source in the European parliament told the Guardian: "Since 1 January [2018] the European parliament has withheld 50% in order to recoup the €40,000 due in salary that was paid to Christopher Adams and which can not be proved by Farage". He will have paid back his "debt" by October 2018.

Following Nigel Farage's second Brexit referendum claims, Mr Bolton said it is possible Britain could be burdened with another Brexit vote in the future.

He is one of eight UKIP MEPs who were investigated by the European Parliamentary authorities for misuse of public funds past year.

Farage is one of eight Ukip MEPs who were investigated in 2017 for misuse of European Union funds.

"Parliament pays salaries to assistants of lawmakers for work directly related to their European mandate", a European Parliament spokeswoman said.

However, one of the party's most senior figures, Roger Helmer, resigned last summer after an investigation demanded he repay £100,000. Two other investigations into Ukip MEPs were closed without any action.

Mr Helmer denied any wrongdoing but gave no explanation as to why he was stepping down. "This allegation is all part of their politically- motivated assault".

He said he was "less than impressed" by Mr Bennett - then a candidate - for blaming eastern European immigrants for problems with rubbish on the streets of Cardiff.

An Efdd Group spokesman said: "There is a vindictive campaign by the European Parliament of selective persecution of Eurosceptic MEPs, parties and groups". European parliamentary authorities have in recent years paid closer attention to how MEPs spend EU funds, after years of assuming parties would do the right thing. Farage's monthly, pre-tax salary, according to the European Parliament website, is €8,484 ($10,295) per month.
