MEP Steven Woolfe quits UKIP

Following his stay in hospital. Looks like this spells the beginning of the end for UKIP. I guess it could be argued the referendum spelled the end for them. They've certainly served their purpose.

A canny politician would re-name them and re-brand them as a party to appeal to the working classes who have been forgotten by all the other parties. There's millions of former Labour voters just waiting to be hoovered up.
They've reinvented and recycled themselves a few times since the early 1990s. Always ends up in chaos and infighting then they come out with a new name and a renewed set of bandwagon politics and they're up and running again.

They are a massively popular party in the UK. Despite the one seat they hold they got almost 4 million votes in the last election.

I don't think this is the end of them, they are the equivalent of the unflushable poo of the political parties.
