Nigel Farage Tells LBC New Leader Henry Bolton Gives Ukip "Hope"

Mr Whittle, who had been touted as a likely victor, came a surprise fifth with 1,413 - an 11% share of the vote - while Ms Waters came second with 2,755 votes, a 21% vote share. The most obvious way for the party to regain its mojo would be if Theresa May (or a new Conservative leader) sought to negotiate a close relationship with the European Union by, say, remaining in the single market.

Some UKIP MEPs have threatened to leave the party if Ms Waters wins.

"Even last week, the clear divisions within the party could be seen here in Kent, as Mr Bolton and Chris Wells, the leader of Ukip's only council in the country in Thanet, publicly clashed over the future of Manston airport and the general running of the council".

Henry Bolton, 54, a former Lib Dem candidate and father of three, won 30 per cent of the vote, beating a controversial anti-Islam candidate and other higher-profile Ukip figures.

"We can't lead the nation and we can't hold the government to account and we can't achieve our core goal at all", he said.

Although nobody is suggesting the new UKIP leader is capable of kidnap and torture, or that he might one day be fed alive to a pack of dogs by his political opponents, plenty were quick to make the connection to Game of Thrones' most notorious characters.

Former leader Nigel Farage, who is not standing in the leadership contest, has warned that the party will be "finished" if it becomes anti-Islam.

Speaking at the UKIP conference in Torquay, Mr Bolton urged party members to "rally around the party", saying: "Without being united, we can not lead".

Indeed, Mr Bolton joked to members in his victory speech, saying: "I would like to thank those who didn't vote for me because you were probably trying to do me a favour".

He said: "I do not see myself now as simply being your leader, I see myself as serving this party".

"He is a man of real substance", the former leader added.

His predecessor Diane James, who replaced Nigel Farage, lasted just 18 days in the job.
