BREAKING: Diane James resigns as UKIP Leader


  • Diane James has resigned after only 18 days as UKIP Leader
  • Sources saying there is a family issue that led her to step down
  • She was spat at by a left-wing person last week in Waterloo (we know this) and this may have affected her decision
  • Rumours of a snap two-week leadership election, where Woolfe, Nuttall and Evans could stand
  • Woolfe fans are both happy and sad because Woolfe will be leader, but sad because Diane has stepped down
  • If the same happens now as happened when Farage resigned (the second not third time), the NEC will appoint an interim leader to lead while we have a leadership election
  • Nigel Farage has not ruled out standing

Reading reports that Diane James has resigned as UKIP leader.
Wondering if the disgusting attack on her at Waterloo has taken its toll.

Just emailed Diane James to ask if rumours of her quitting are true. Got this in response. Weird.

Diane James has quit, I can confirm.
