    Is this true? If so, will Farage return again like an increasingly unwanted movie sequel?

    Not been confirmed and if true reasons range from falling out with UKIP top people and her husband being ill. Presumably if true they will just have to go through another election?

    Not true yet, merely media speculation, by the sounds of it the entire basis is "she seemed to not be getting on with some of her MEPs"

    I know it's only speculation, but it's interesting. I also heard it may be her husband's health.

    Probably expected - many of them are middle-aged right-wing males just out of the golf club with an instinct for misogyny.

    but what her MEP's think surely doesn't even matter anymore? They will all be out of a job in a couple of years

    If she quits, will the election just start all over again? Will Steven Woolfe be able to run this time?

    If he learnt his lesson, yes and yes.

    I love how nobody has mentioned about the incident involving a hard left protester who spat in her face.

    Seems one has to accept hard left views but any other view is unacceptable

    Surely there must be a load of people wanting to be leader of UKIP, after all apparently the Peoples Army was going to create a revolution in 2020?

    Nah, if it's on BBC News, it's official. They tend to wait for official confirmation, often reporting stuff later than the newspaper websites, who will go with earlier "unofficial" sources etc.

    A lot of BBC's "viewpoints", "opinion pieces" etc are a load of crap, but they're very reliable for this sort of thing.

    I was shocked to see the BBC running a piece earlier suggesting that maybe brexit won't be all bad, I mean, do they have a new editorial team or something?

    Yeah, maybe not the best time to be looking at that for reliable information.
