Andrew Gywnne statement on Douglas Carswell leaving UKIP

Commenting on Douglas Carswell’s decision to leave UKIP,
Labour’s
Shadow Minister and Elections Chair, Andrew Gwynne MP, said:

“UKIP are tearing themselves apart. Their ‎only MP has quit, their biggest donor has fled and their leader
was utterly rejected by the voters of Stoke-on-Trent a few weeks ago. Under Paul Nuttall UKIP now has no MPs and no
future.

“This episode exposes the truth of UKIP: they’ve got nothing to
offer the voters and they’re a divided party with extreme policies, such as
privatising the NHS.”
