Former leader Diane James quits UKIP
Former UKIP leader Diane James has resigned from the party, saying it is “time to move on”.
The MEP said her relationship with UKIP had become “increasingly difficult” and that she had been offered no support by the executive during her leadership.
Ms James stood down as leader last month after just 18 days in charge.
Interim leader Nigel Farage said her decision was “yet another act of irrational selfishness” and she was no longer fit to sit as an MEP.
Mr Farage is back in charge on an interim basis, with UKIP currently engaged in another leadership contest.
