It seems UKIP are now challenging Labour for the most chaotic leadership contest. UKIP have traditionally shown a tendency to stick very rigidly to the Party rules. Party rules which some argue are changed to suit the circumstances. The leading candidate Mr Woolfe is facing a double battle to get to the starting line. Despite him being one of the Party’s MEP’s it appears he may fall foul of the rule which requires candidates to have been Party members for at least two years and it is claimed his membership lapsed and was only renewed this year. Then he apparently missed the deadline to get his nomination in by 17 minutes. The rules Committee is due to meet tomorrow when all should become clearer. All is in sharp contrast to the swift and efficient Conservative leadership contest.
