Ukip Leader Diane James Is Nigel Farage ‘Stooge’ Peddling ‘Hateful’ Policies Claims Tim Farron

Mr Farron is set to point out the Ukip’s last three leaders were all Nigel Farage, as he dismisses incoming Ukip leader Diane James as nothing more than a puppet of her predecessor.

James was elected leader this week, after Farage has led the party for most of the past decade. He was the leader from 2006-2009, before briefly stepping down and then winning the role again again in 2010. He also resigned in 2015, only to ‘un-resign’ three days later.
