Farage On Way Out - Of EU & UKIP?

WITH NIGEL FARAGE declaring that he is putting 'country before Party' in an effort to produce a Quit vote in the EU Referendum, bookmakers William Hill are offering odds of 3/1 that he will not lead UKIP into the next General Election.

'Following the confusion over Mr Farage's 'resignation' and return as Leader immediately after the General Election, it is no certainty that he will still be in control when the next Election takes place, particularly as he is now apparently concentrating on working towards a No vote in the EU Referendum, possibly at the expense of Party ambitions, which may not go down well with all UKIP members' said Hill's spokesman Graham Sharpe.
