Ukip candidate warns party “on the brink of disintegration and all-out civil war”

Alan Melville, lead [Ukip] candidate for the Lothian region in the Scottish Parliament election, said the party ‘stands on the brink of disintegration and all-out civil war’ in Scotland…

Melville is the most high profile party member to call for the removal of David Coburn MEP, Ukip’s only parliamentarian in Scotland, as leader north of the border. [The Metro]

David Coburn is frequently in the news, for reasons such as his attacks on same-sex marriage (“a mockery of the holy sacrament of marriage”), comparing Scottish minister Humza Yousaf to convicted terrorist Abu Hamza, supporting increasing the amount of alcohol you can drink and still then legally drive, and banning a Ukip member from helping at a local food bank.
