UKIP chairman now says he WILL resign

Richard Palmer, chairman of the Kent branch of UKIP, has confirmed he will be standing down from the role, and as the party's candidate in Sittingbourne and Sheppey.

It was reported that Mr Palmer had resigned as chairman on Monday, following critical comments made on the BBC about party leader Paul Nuttall.

However, after speaking to the party leader directly, he told the BBC he was considering reversing his resignation.

Mr Palmer now says he is definitely standing down, but because he "needs a rest".

He also says the local branch has decided not to field a UKIP candidate in Sittingbourne and Sheppey, because both the Conservative and Labour candidates backed Brexit, although this decision could be overruled at a higher level.
