Reckless in Running to Take Over as UKIP Policy Chief

Will the next victim of the UKIP un-putsch be Suzanne Evans? Speculation mounts that there are plans afoot to sack Suzanne as party policy chief and replace her with defeated ex-MP Mark Reckless. Guido put it to Reckless this afternoon:

“I don’t want to comment on my future plans. Nothing has been agreed.”

Asked if UKIP had offered him Evans’ job, Reckless replied “I don’t want to comment”.

A UKIP spokesman says “no comment”. Evans has been approached for comment but is silent thus far.

Carswell is back in line, Gobby and O’Flynn are out… will Evans be next?

UPDATE: Evans says she will make a statement later.

Quote of the Day

Lewis Goodall opines

“Remainer readers may dislike Mr Farage – they may dislike his style, his rhetoric, his approach – but he cannot be faulted for his appreciation of strategy. If his opponents don’t up their game – and fast – he will beat them, just as he did before.”
