On Saturday Paul Nuttall finally agreed to meet concerned Eastern Region members.
It is now quite clear that UKIP East is on the point of collapse. Indeed, Paul Nuttall admitted at the end of the meeting that he was “flabbergasted” by the widespread discontent. He also claimed to be shocked by the demand that George Curtis and Peter Reeve ( pictured here) be forced to resign.
I now have the minutes for this stormy meeting and will shortly be publishing them in full on this blog.
