following the 23 june referrendum whereby the brits voted to leave the european union (EU), ukip has had a bit of a problem. basically, whatever cameron’s faults, by called a vote on staying to leaving the EU, the conservative party managed to remove the one-issue from the one-issue party ukip. thereby shutting down the rise of the far right. it was genius–even though most people will wait about 10 years to admit this. had austria done something similar, it could have perhaps stopped the march of their far right populist party the FPOE.
since the referrendum, nigel farage has stepped down as party leader. and today we’ve read, after less than 1 month and only over 2 weeks on the job, the new ukip leader has stepped down.
