I note that Daniel Baldwin has thrown his hat into the ring. He is 30 years old and joined UKIP a year ago after becoming thoroughly disillusioned with Labour.
He intends to listen to the concerns of members, Farage and the NEC - thereby showing himself to be a consensus leader.
Daniel does not see severe cerebral palsy as an obstacle to his political ambitions.
I will post more information as I get it - his announcement on the UKIP members forum being rather brief.
