Christian MEP who left UKIP says there's little hope for party's future

Mr Bolton walked out on wife Mrs Smurova-Bolton 42 and their children for topless model Jo Marney 25 just days before Christmas

Mr Bolton has faced repeated calls to quit over offensive texts sent by his former girlfriend.

Parker told BBC Radio Northampton: "It would be quicker and cleaner if he came to the conclusion he could go sooner rather than later".

"It is now time to put an end to the factional in-fighting within the Party and to remove those who have been a part of that".

Bolton will be interviewed by former UKIP leader Nigel Farage on his LBC radio show Monday evening.

Yesterday NEC member Piers Wauchope, a former Tunbridge Wells councillor who was the party's election candidate in North Thanet in 2015, said too much damage had been done.

Woolfe revealed that when he ran for leadership, he saw that "the executive and some of their supporters and MEPs.really have a totally different agenda to that of what Ukip was about" and they "attacked anybody that seems sensible or capable of taking the party forward".

Automated Amazon Go Store Opens Doors in Seattle on Monday
The first clue that there's something unusual about Amazon's store of the future hits you right at the front door. Amazon, famous for dynamic pricing online, has printed price tags just as traditional brick-and-mortar stores do.

Should Bolton step down, the party will have to find its fifth leader in 18 months.

During his statement on Monday, Bolton addressed the UKIP's National Executive Committee itself which had given him the vote of no confidence, calling it "unfit for purpose".

Bolton has said he ended "the romantic side" of his relationship with Marney after the Mail on Sunday newspaper published text messages to a friend in which she called black people "ugly" and said Prince Harry's fiancee Meghan Markle would "taint" the royal family.

But he said he would "support her in rebuilding her life", which he said had been "turned on its head".

With a leave vote achieved and Farage gone, it has suffered from poor and eccentric leadership, falling poll ratings and a general perception that Brexit can be left to the Tories. My own personal life, its a little bit of a mess at the moment.

Mr Bolton said: "I respect the next steps in the constitutional process and will therefore not be resigning as party leader".

Everton agree a deal to sell Aaron Lennon
Alan Pardew picked up his first win as West Brom manager last weekend, helping the club with its first game since August 19. West Brom will hope to break their poor record against Everton by securing a somewhat surprise win at Goodison Park.

Led by the Farage, UKIP won almost four million votes in 2015, 12.6 perc ent of those cast, on its anti-EU platform, projecting it to the forefront of British politics even though it only managed to win one seat in parliament.

Bolton's refusal to quit means UKIP members will meet in around a month's time to vote on whether to ratify the NEC's no-confidence motion against Bolton.

Members will be told about when and where it will be held in the next 10 days.

Despite the scandal, Bolton has defiantly refused to stand down, denouncing the attempt to oust him as a coup and insisting that the party could face extinction if forced into what would be its third leadership election in two years.

The anti-European party UKIP, key political force in UK's decision to leave EU, continues to excavate to levels already cartoony in mire in which it began to sink after reaching its vital mission with victory of Brexit in referendum of year ago and M Edio.
