Farage has salary slashed to recoup 'misspent funds'

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

"They have a majority in parliament, and unless we get ourselves organised we could lose the historic victory that was Brexit."Last week, Farage said he was warming to the idea of holding a second vote on Britain's membership of the European Union to settle the argument - an idea written off by other Brexit campaigners who urged the government to press on with exit talks with the bloc.In 2016, Britons voted 52 to 48 percent in favour of ending its membership of the EU".

It is understood Mr Adams is a former national nominating officer for Ukip.

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".

MEPs earn €101,808 a year before tax and receive thousands more in expenses for staff, travel and office costs.

Two investigations were closed without any formal action.

Ukip said they were still opposed to a second referendum, although party leader Henry Bolton said he was confident Brexit would win by a bigger margin if another vote were held. They dismissed the salary cut as a "politically-motivated assault".

Farage has the right to appeal at the European Court of Justice.

Full-time MEP assistants are not allowed to do any paid work for any national political party. Half of his salary will be recovered by the European Parliament.

The Guardian writes that Farage will not leave the Parliament portionless.

Website Votewatch Europe listed Farage 748th out of 751 MEPs for voting participation at the European Parliament.

Earlier Thursday Farage, one of the driving forces behind the June 2016 referendum, told a British television panel show that pro-Europeans such as former prime minister Tony Blair "will never ever ever give up".

Mr Farage told The Observer: 'The Remain side are making all the running.

Marine Le Pen is under formal investigation by French magistrates, after she refused to repay almost €300,000 of EU funds, following a European parliament investigation into EU funds spent by the far-right Front National leader.
