Former Ukip deputy chair Suzanne Evans quits party over Tommy Robinson appointment
The party’s former health spokeswoman – who wrote the party's 2015 – said she had cancelled her membership following a refusal from party chiefs to call a vote of no confidence in Ukip leader Gerard Batten.
Mr Batten was facing calls to stand down over his decision to appoint Mr Robinson – a prominent anti-Islam activist and former leader of the English Defence League – as an adviser on rape gangs and prison reform.
In a statement, Ms Evans slammed the Ukip leader for the “perverse direction” said he was taking the party in, saying: "Enough is enough."
Ms Evans added: "I was hoping, yesterday, that sense would prevail; that Ukip’s National Executive Committee would call for a ‘no confidence’ vote in Batten, so the party could be prevented from taking a devastatingly wrong turn.
"But if even those elected to represent ordinary members won’t protect Ukip from a leader who appears hell bent on destroying it from within, then there is no hope left.”
