Times of Suriname - - ENGELS -

UK - The Ukip lea­der­ship fa­vou­ri­te, Ste­ven Wool­fe, has been ta­ken to hos­pi­tal in a se­rious con­di­ti­on af­ter col­lapsing fol­lo­wing an al­ter­ca­ti­on du­ring a mee­ting of the party’s MEPs in Stras­bourg. The North West Eng­land MEP is said to ha­ve been ta­ken ill at the par­li­a­ment in Stras­bourg yes­ter­day. Ukip’s in­te­rim lea­der, Ni­gel Fa­ra­ge, said: “I dee­ply re­gret that fol­lo­wing an al­ter­ca­ti­on that took pla­ce at a mee­ting of Ukip MEPs that Ste­ven Wool­fe sub­se­quent­ly col­lap­sed and was ta­ken to hos­pi­tal. His con­di­ti­on is se­rious.” La­ter Fa­ra­ge told the Te­le­graph: “Things are mild­ly bet­ter. I ha­ve just spo­ken to Mr Wool­fe and I will be go­ing to vi­sit him la­ter this af­ter­noon. We are still wai­ting for the re­sults”.

Ra­heem Kas­sam, Fa­ra­ge’s for­mer ad­vi­ser, had ear­lier said Wool­fe’s con­di­ti­on was be­lie­ved to be “li­fe-th­re­a­tening”. Sour­ces fa­mi­liar with the in­ci­dent said that Wool­fe had been pun­ched du­ring the mee­ting of MEPs, but was not im­me­di­a­te­ly ta­ken ill. He sub­se­quent­ly col­lap­sed as they went in to vo­te at the Eu­ro­pean par­li­a­ment.
