BREAKING: Henry Bolton Removed As UKIP Leader
UKIP members have today voted against Henry Bolton at the party’s EGM.
1378 ballots returned
63% voted against Henry
37% voted for Henry
The result will trigger the party’s National Executive Committee to put in place a new interim leader followed by a leadership election within 90 days.
In his closing speech, Mr Bolton said that there was an “enemy within” UKIP which was bringing him down and that he intends to bring the party to court whichever way the vote goes.
After these remarks, many members walked out in protest, including the majority of the Young Independence council.
