The interim leader of UKIP Gerard Batten has received support from Veterans Against Terrorism (VAT).
Members of the VAT are being encouraged to join UKIP in order to win at the ballot box.
Watch the video below.
Following a turbulent period in UKIP’s history, Henry Bolton has been ousted by an EGM which met on the 17th February, 2018.
Votes cast were as follows:
1406 Eligible voters
1378 votes were received
500 AGAINST the motion, keeping Bolton
867 FOR the motion, removing Bolton
11 votes were invalidated
Therefore, Henry Bolton has been removed by the EGM.
The NEC met shortly after, and appointed Gerard Batten MEP as UKIP leader.
There will be another leadership election within 90 days.

From Jack Smith:
I’m sure that I speak on behalf of the entirety of UKIP North Norfolk when I applaud and thank Nigel Farage for all the hard work he has put into the idea of the UK becoming a free country, out of the EU. Without UKIP, and Nigel, we would not have gotten a vote to leave. Actually we wouldn’t have even had a referendum.
