Quote of the day 23th August 2015

“The consequences of me failing to secure a seat for myself in the Commons would be significant for both myself and the party.

It is frankly just not credible for me to continue to lead the party without a Westminster seat.

What credibility would UKIP have in the Commons if others had to enunciate party policy in Parliament and the party leader was only allowed in as a guest?

Was I supposed to brief UKIP policy from the Westminster Arms? No – if I fail to win South Thanet, it is curtains for me. I will have to step down.”

(Nigel Farage, before failing to win South Thanet, on the ridiculous situation he would be in if he tried to remain leader without a seat in the Commons.

Of course, he is now in an even more ridiculous position having stepped down on the above grounds and then reversed the decision ...)
