Apparently linky (http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/2016/10/04/diane-james-quits-as-ukip-leader-after-just-18-days-as-successor/)

Maybe people should have tried similar with Corbyn so the government has proper opposition.

WTF you on about? What should people have tried? spitting on a train station platform? You must be bonkers!

Anyway, bigoted as you are, the opposition is fine. You can only mount a proper opposition if the party in power has any sort of grip on themselves. At the moment the Tories are a confused bunch and are like headless chickens heading into Brexit.

That's why Farage was so good. In the pub till last orders, he'd probably shat himself on the last bus. Nobody would bother spitting on him.

As a UKIP member who voted for Diane James I'm a bit hacked off.

UKIP needs to get rid of the Carswells, Hamiltons and Duffys and reconnect with the membership. Too many fakers for me at the moment.

My money is on Steven Woolfe. Should have been him last time.

Farage got death threats.

I bet May and Sturgeon like female, non-white or gay male Labour MPs get death threats as well. Though being leaders of their respective parties they don't have to ask their ineffective leader to clamp down on supporters who threaten to kill them.

I'm not a UKIP voter but the best person would be Steven Wolfe, he was quite impressive on Question Time last week and would be better at connecting with the North than Diane James.

If UKIP have any sense, and that's a big if, they should choose Wolfe, if they do Labour's problems will get much much bigger.

Can't see them disbanding any time soon. The people clearly regard them as more valid than several other parties, given the number of votes cast for them at the last election. I think they should stay - keeps the far more sinister BNP marginalised while keeping other parties on their toes too.

Basically the man you cannot believe...


Nigel Farage has declared himself the interim leader of Ukip following the resignation of Diane James after just 18 days in the post.


Farage told the Press Association that he would not return as Ukip leader “for $10m”. Asked if he’d take $20m, he replied: “No I’m not coming back. I’m retired.”

Don't worry, you've always got the Scots:



Eric Stuart Joyce is a British politician and former military officer. He is a former member of parliament (MP) for Falkirk West and (from 2005) Falkirk. Joyce was an MP from the 2000 Falkirk West by-election, originally as a Labour Party MP, until 2015 when he stood down having sat as an Independent MP for several years.

....

Joyce, who was once a member of the expenses watchdog himself, was named as Britain's most expensive MP in 2009 and subsequently made headlines by allegedly claiming for designer glasses, iPods and gourmet bacon baps.

Then there were the allegations of an affair with a 17-year-old girl, claims Joyce vehemently denied, and, most damaging of all, the string of violent confrontations which cost the MP his place in the Labour party.

Joyce lost the Labour whip in 2012 after punching and headbutting four fellow MPs in a House of Commons bar, an offence for which he was also fined £3,000 and banned from bars for three months. He was detained in police custody after another confrontation in a different Commons bar, exactly 12 months later, and earlier this month he was found guilty of 'unprovoked' assault on two teenagers in a Camden shop. In March last year he was fined £1,500 for breach of the peace for what was described as a "drink-fuelled rant" at Edinburgh airport.
