Ukip Leadership Contender Raheem Kassam Sparks Outrage For History Of Controversial Twitter Posts

The Huffington Post UK has contacted Kassam to ask him to provide details of the apology.

Hours earlier, Suzanne Evans, Ukip’s former interim leader and another candidate in the race triggered by Dianne James’ resignation, described her rival in the election as “far-right”. 

In response, Kassam wrote her a letter asking for the pair to meet to show the various factions of Ukip could “be united once and for all”. 

But the Metro newspaper’s deputy news editor Joel Taylor posted a screenshot of an old message from Kassam that seemed to show a contrasting effort. 

The post responded to news Evans had had her Ukip membership suspended. Kassam had writeen: “Now fuck off for good.”
