Just announced that Diane James has decided to not take up the post of leader for 'personal and professional reasons'. Internal political rifts, and understandable horror at being spat upon in public are believed to be contributory reasons. As always, there is probably more to this than is initially spun.
According to early reports, Nigel Farage has not ruled out running for the leadership again. Steven Woolfe is the only other potential candidate with any public profile of note. If he can get his nomination papers in this time of course.
It would be hard to make this stuff up really. 18 days makes Sam Allardyce look a veteran.
