Further to Nikki's resignation from the EFD Group in the EU Parliament on grounds of conscience, whilst pledging her continued support to UKIP, there have been further developments today.
I have been told in a very brief conversation that Nikki has now been arbitrarily de-selected as a UKIP PPC for the general election.
Furthermore her offices in the West Midlands were today 'raided' by party officials who removed UKIP property. Unfortunately there was only a junior member of staff there at the time, a nineteen year old, who was quite shaken up by the experience.
I will update as I receive information.
