    You might be wondering how Farage is justifying everyone in his Company/Party being absolutely terrible. He’s, of course, just blaming someone else.

    Nigel Farage on Twitter: Reform paid a vetting company £144k to carry out candidate checks. Not a single piece of work was delivered. Colin Bloom has links to the Tory party & has very serious questions to answer. Lawyers have been instructed. We do not rule out police action.

        And there’s also the part where none of their candidates were vetted by anyone because they outsourced the process.

          The best part is the money didn’t even go to a vetting company, they paid for a licence for a vetting platform that let’s you carry out your own checks:

          Are you an outsourced background screening company?
          No, we provide you with the ability to complete your own background screening in house

      Tice has said on multiple occasions that Reform do not vet their own candidates (that’s the media’s job apparently). He seemed to think this was some sort of positive to brag about.
