The primary role of the new Ukip leader is to bring together the party as best they can in the interests of its main strength, the membership. Paul is not one of the recent political carpet baggers who somehow manifested themselves at the top, he has been around for some time.
Moreover he is one of the few of whom gave up a career to do the job. In short he has skin in the game. Often forgotten is his successful spell as party chairman, a vital role in any party, an appointment completely degraded in recent years at Ukip and largely responsible for its current problems. The chairman is a peace maker, indeed more importantly an intercepter of strife. If you doubt it read Thatcher’s homily to Willie Whitelaw. The chairman should not be the hatchet man for paranoid leaders.
