Godfrey Bloom is latest MEP to leave UKIP

Godfrey Bloom MEP has resigned as a UKIP MEP and will sit as an independent. He joins Marta Andreasen, David Campbell Bannerman and Mike Nattrass in taking his hook from the party since the last Euro elections in 2009. In the last parliament, Tom Wise  and Ashley Mote both had their hooks taken by Mr Plod and ended up as guests of Her Majesty.

The moral of this story is that for UKIP, getting people elected to the European Parliament is the easy bit. The hard part comes afterwards in keeping them out of jail or preventing them from resigning the whip during their terms in office.
