Ukip leader quits over far-right link
UKIP’S Scottish leader David Coburn has quit the party in disgust over the party’s links to the far-right.
The MEP has slammed the “English nationalist direction” adopted by the party.
EX-UK leader Paul Nuttall has also quit the party.
Ukip’s most high-profile figure, Nigel Farage, quit the party earlier this week after calling for leader Gerard Batten to be ousted over the appointment of far-right activist Tommy Robinson as an adviser on rape gangs and prison reform.
Coburn said: “The party has been infiltrated by people with an alternative agenda, which is not the one on which I stood when I was elected and sadly does not represent the values for which Ukip once stood.”
