Henry Bolton refuses to resign as Ukip leader despite resignations

Political Correspondent

Despite resignations from more than a dozen colleagues, Ukip leader Henry Bolton isn’t budging.

On Sunday, Ukip’s national executive voted no confidence in Mr Bolton following the controversy around his recent girlfriend Jo Marney and several racist comments she made on social media. Now Ukip will hold an extraordinary general meeting on 17 February to decide Mr Bolton’s future. But his fate could rest in the hands of his famous predecessor Nigel Farage.
