Yesterday, there were suggestions that part of the delay was due to concerns over the handling of £118,000 of donations. The Sunday Times reported that, although the cheques were declared to the Electoral Commission, they did not pass through the party's four main bank accounts.
But both Mr Farage and John Whittaker, the party chairman, insisted yesterday that the money had been properly processed.
Mr Farage said the money had gone into a fifth bank account set up to fight the 2005 general election campaign in "certain areas". "The money is not missing. It never was. That £118,000 had already been reported to the Electoral Commission and was all valid."
Mr Farage also insisted that a party call centre in Ashford, Kent, had been properly run.
David Campbell-Bannerman, the party's deputy leader, has said that only 15 per cent of funds donated to Ukip through a call centre in Kent has been paid into the party's head office accounts.
Outrage over the Ashford call centre has been blamed for the resignations of at least six senior party officials over the past 18 months.
Five former members of the party's national executive committee, Ukip's governing body, have told this newspaper they believe about £500,000 is unaccounted for in the party's head office accounts.
DON'T PANIC! SAYS CAMEROONIE INFORMATION MINISTERCameroonie Information Minister David al-Cameron today leapt to the defence of his leader, Saddam Hilton to deny reports that Project Cameron has come off the rails, with Conservatives losing patience with a leader who himself was a left-wing Green Party supporter before seizing control of the Tory Party."There are no infidel polls showing election defeat for us!" yelled al-Cameron as international press outlets began reporting on an impending fourth victory for the British Labour Party.Saddam Hilton today remains as elusive as ever, leaving his loyal information minister to continue the battle in front of camera.Note to editors: The Tory Party was a once great political machine but has been slowly reduced to an empty shell since it joined the europhile invasion of Europe leading to wide-ranging sanctions which stripped Britain of its wealth and freedom to control its own affairs. Current leader Saddam Hilton is widely believed to be its last leader before it slips into electoral obscurity
