The spokesperson told Golwg360 that this was a new press tactic, adding that Nathan Gill had not done anything wrong, and that there was no case to answer.
A Hull Daily Mail article in which it was claimed that Gill had treated foreign workers better than locals was "very unfair" because those making the accusations had not given their names.
Ukip also refused to answer questions about Gill's religion, his claim that he was not a professional politician and the employment of Eastern Europeans in the family's care home business.
Golwg360 said it had been trying unsuccessfully to contact the elusive MEP since revelations about his past emerged last week.
An observant reader spotted him in a family snapshot of Farage's new troops arriving in Brussels earlier this week (just to the right of Nigel Farage):
There is also a Facebook page dedicated to our man in Brussels which consists for the most part of messages and videos of people pledging their support. They include a rather stiff performance from Jana, Mr Gill's American wife, telling is why we should vote for her man, and another of a public meeting in Anglesey where two of Gill's young sons were pressed into service to read from a prepared script.
The family business is alive and well.
A previous version of this piece referred to a website being set up in the name of Nathan Gill. It is now clear that this website has nothing to do with the MEP of the same name.
