UKIP deputy treasurer Hugh Williams has written a history book in which he claims Poland ?goaded? Nazi Germany into the invasion that sparked the second world war.

He also describes the recent child abuse scandal within the Catholic Church as ?statistically negligible? ? and suggests Winston Churchill admired Adolf Hitler and Joseph Stalin.

Mr Williams, who boasts he is ?proud of being politically incorrect?, gives only two mentions to the suffragettes in his book From Ur to Us, Everything you Need to Know about History.

It is the latest embarrassment for UKIP leader Nigel Farage, following a string of gaffes by high-profile members and the shock departure of party chief executive Will Gilpin.

Mr Farage admitted today that he had to ?get a grip? on the party.

He said he would be scaling back his media work to take ?direct managerial control?.

?I will have to do less politics, fewer interviews, fewer public meetings, fewer appearances,? said Mr Farage.

?I will have to spend more time directly overseeing the jobs being done, because the problem we have had is one of non-delivery.

"We do need to get a grip on things.?
