An­other ex-UKIP leader quits party

Western Daily Press (Saturday) - - Uk & World News -

UKIP MEP and for­mer leader Paul Nut­tall has quit the party in protest at Tommy Robinson be­ing ap­pointed as an ad­viser.

Mr Nut­tall is the lat­est prom­i­nent fig­ure to leave Ukip com­plain­ing of the di­rec­tion it has taken un­der leader Ger­ard Bat­ten.

Mr Bat­ten has drawn crit­i­cism for ap­point­ing po­lit­i­cal ac­tivist and English De­fence League founder Mr Robinson as an ad­viser on rape gangs and prison re­form. Mr Nut­tall said it would ‘ap­pal mod­er­ate vot­ers.’
