Brexit is our core task says new Ukip leader Henry Bolton

What does the future hold for Ukip

Henry Bolton saw off a challenge from anti-Islam campaigner Anne Marie Waters to win with 30% of the vote. Long before being ripped apart by dogs (don't give us that spoilers shit now - that was Season 6), Ramsay tortured Theon Greyjoy into submission, eventually cutting his dick off and sending it back over to the Iron Islands to his dad.

A little-known former army officer has been elected leader of Ukip today in a surprise result, becoming the party's fourth leader in less than 18 months.

Mr Bolton, now an worldwide security expert, stood as the Ukip candidate in the election for the Kent crime commissioner in 2016.

He told Iain Dale the new leader had his "full support" and would be on hand to offer any advice.

The new UKIP leader will hold a press conference when the leadership result is announced and deliver a speech to members in Torquay on Friday. He is now tasked with charting a new direction for the party after the European Union referendum.

Bolton had warned his party against a lurch to the right and said he wanted to "resume Nigel Farage's legacy by restoring UKIP's relevance and authority". He's a former soldier who used to be in the Lib Dems.

Following Bolton's election as leader, Nigel Farage tweeted: "I am delighted @_HenryBolton has won the UKIP leadership election". BBC political correspondent Ben Wright said Mr Bolton would be seen as the continuity candidate.

Bolton will replace Paul Nuttall who resigned following a disastrous snap general election performance in June when UKIP's vote share shrank to 1.2 percent from 12 percent.

This led to the resignation of the party's then leader Paul Nuttall.
