General Election 2017: Labour leaves door open to keeping the UK in the EU

25 Apr

Mr Nuttall, the Ukip leader, has so far refused to commit to standing as a candidate at the General Election. 

But his number two, Peter Whittle, told BBC Radio 4’s Today programme suggested Mr Nuttall will stand. 

He said: “We had a leader in Nigel Farage, an incredibly effective one, who was leader whilst we had an MP in Parliament, Douglas Carswell.

“I’m sure Paul probably will stand. I don’t know. I think he is still thinking about it, as indeed am I.”

He also rejected that Ukip is in a “hell of a mess”.
