UKIP CRISIS BREAKING: Landslide Vote Of No Confidence In Henry Bolton By YI Members
UKIP’s youth wing, Young Independence, has voted to accept a motion of no confidence in the leadership of the Party by Henry Bolton. Members have been voting for 4 days in the online poll which has been taken as Mr Bolton tries to desperately cling onto the leadership of the Party ahead of Sunday’s crunch NEC meeting to discuss his future.
The question asked, “Do you agree that this UKIP Branch [Young Independence] has no confidence in Henry Bolton as UKIP Leader?” 76%, over 3/4’s of the participants, voted ‘Yes’ and 23% voted ‘No’.
The vote comes on another day when UKIP has been rocked back on its heels by mass resignations – including of one MEP and the entire Hartlepool branch. Mr Bolton’s former press secretary, Susie Govett, also resigned citing the damage Mr Bolton is doing to UKIP:
“The reputation of UKIP, its members, Councillors, supporters and voters has been, and will continue to be, damaged by the recent events surrounding Henry Bolton.
Hartlepool was the site of UKIP’s best council by-election result in six months. Meanwhile, other senior figures within the Party are said to be considering their future should Mr Bolton survive Sunday’s vote.
