UKIP leader Nuttall to fight Stoke by-election

Speaking at the launch of his campaign to be elected the seat Tristram Hunt recently vacated, he set out his stall for gaining Ukip's second parliamentary seat.

Stoke-on-Trent recorded one of the highest votes for leaving the European Union in last year's referendum. He said, "I am sick and exhausted of Englishness being the one national identity in our island that is not allowed to speak its name".

The seat is traditionally a safe Labour one, but the party's majority has fallen from 20,000 in the 1997 general election to about 5,000 in 2015.

The byelection was triggered by the resignation of Hunt, a leading Labour moderate, who stood down to become director of London's V&A museum.

He added: "While we are still evaluating the results of the strikes, the initial assessment indicates they were successful". The operation more or less exclusively centered on Sirte, which was at the time ISIS' de facto capital in the country.

She said it had become clear she did not have "sufficient authority, nor the full support of all my MEP colleagues and party officers to implement changes I believe necessary".

Mr Nuttall told ITV's Peston on Sunday: "We now have a Labour party that I feel, and many working class people feel, has stopped representing not only their grassroot members, but also their voters".

"I will champion the issues that matter to the people of Stoke-on-Trent".

The vote to replace him will take place on 23 February, the same day as the Copeland byelection in Cumbria, which was prompted by the resignation of another Labour MP, Jamie Reed.

Nuttall is hoping to win a seat in the House of Commons alongside his Ukip colleague, Douglas Carswell.

In a thinly-veiled dig at the outgoing Labour MP, Mr. Hunt, he said it was hard for those "born down South with a wealth of connections" to connect with the constituency.

Speaking in Stoke-on-Trent after his selection was announced, Mr Nuttall said that if elected he will fight for people to be able to afford to have "a house, a auto and a holiday".

Mr Nuttall, a former history lecturer, has promised to restore unity to the party.
