Ukip has come under scrutiny for reportedly accepting donations from a controversial businessman it had previously distanced itself from due to his "unpalatable" views.
Channel 4 News claims that the party accepted a donation as recently as December 2013 from Demetri Marchessini - who is seen below telling the broadcaster that women should not be allowed to wear trousers.
In other comments from the interview, the Greek businessman added that homosexuals were capable of "only lust" and not love, and claimed that a man can never rape his wife - as "once a woman accepts, she accepts".
Nigel Farage believes efforts to discredit him and his party are failing - and the polls suggest he may well be right.
Almost one third of Britons think that Ukip is a racist party, according to a new ITV News/ComRes poll.
