Just tried to visit Rotherham UKIP at hospital, as I had heard he was very ill.
When I arrived I was told he was in intensive care and wouldn’t last much longer. Bad news indeed!
Bring you more as news comes in.
Update: Saw quite a gaggle of people in reception on the way out, some had red rosettes pinned to their lapels. I found out they were visiting their own man who came off his bicycle on Thursday. He lost a lot of blood but is expected to re-join the election battle very soon.
Just been sent this by a local kipper who had received this a few minutes ago.
Dear members of Rotherham UKIP – the party of Farage,
It is my sad duty to inform you the Rotherham UKIP – the party of Farage, succumbed to an infection running through our ranks, known as lackofvotersitis, this evening peacefully, in hospital.
Leader UKIP – the party of Farage, but not for much longer.
