Ukip leader Paul Nuttall resigns

Parmenio Sano | 11 Giugno, 2017, 07:05

"Paul is a good, decent and humble man and I've no doubt that he will be remembered as the person who kept Ukip alive when everything seemed determined to bring it to an end".

The Prime Minister lost her majority and Ukip lost its leader in a disastrous General Election for both parties.

Nuttall stood in Boston and Skegness on the English east coast, which had the highest pro-Brexit vote in the country.

He said: "I'm standing down today as the leader of UKIP with immediate effect".

Conservative Party candidate Matt Warman has comfortably retained his Boston and Skegness seat, with UKIP leader Paul Nuttall humiliatingly finishing behind Labour in third place.

"It's not what I plan, it's not what I want - I was thrilled to lead Ukip to pressure Cameron into offering a referendum, working in that referendum campaign and winning".

Under former leader Nigel Farage, the Euroskeptic party surged 12.6% and gained one MP Douglas Carswell.


Mr Farage said: "What a huge error to pick a Remainer to leader a Brexit par at a Brexit election".

Nuttall said it "has been an honour" to serve as leader of the party but that it is clear the party "requires a new focus and new ideas".

Nuttall stood in Boston and Skegness, where almost three-quarters of the constituency voted to leave in the European Union referendum, but received just 3,308 votes, a fall of 26 percentage points on 2015. It went into this election, materially-speaking, a shell of what it was two years ago.

Remaining party members were asking if Nigel Farage could make a comeback. Mr Nuttall has been fairly strong at communicating from behind podiums, but lacks the electricity of his predecessor out on the doorstep.

Nuttall only became the leader of the party in November past year but announced on Friday morning in a speech that he is standing down.

Mr Farage took over again for a short period until Mr Nuttall was appointed.
