Battens resigns from European Parliament group

The resignations continue as UKIP implodes, with Party Leader Gerard Batten quitting the EFDD group that Nigel Farage leads in the EuroParl.

Batten has issued a statement that reads: “I hereby resign membership of the EFDD Group with immediate effect. It is not possible for me to remain in the Group when the President of the Group Mr. Farage launches continual attacks on me and UKIP in the UK media.”

The bloodbath continues as UKIP falls apart. Quite something that it has come to this and that even Nigel Farage has been forced the leave the party given its direction.
