Paul Nuttall quits as UKIP leader

UKIP’s Paul Nuttall has stood down as leader of the party after it failed to win any seats in the general election.

Mr Nuttall took 3,308 votes in Boston and Skegness – more than 10,000 fewer votes than the party’s result in 2015.

    Talk about the blind leading the blind

    Farage to come back like the saviour
