During the campaign Farage made a big thing of him being ready to step down if he failed to win Thanet South. Well he did fail and did announce last Friday that he was resigning.
This afternoon he’s back in the job after the party’s NEC “refused to accept it”. Rubbish. It just appears as though his campaign threat was a device.
This doesn’t look good for UKIP nor Farage and makes them both appear flakey.
People will take him far less seriously in future.
You run a populist political party. You campaign against mendacious politicians. You promise to resign if you fail to win yr seat. And then?
