UKIP leader Paul Nuttall has confirmed he will be standing for election in the Boston and Skegness constituency. This seat has been chosen because in last year’s Brexit referendum, 75% of the voters wanted to leave the EU.
The seat is currently held by Conservative Matt Warman who has a majority of over 4000.
This will be an important test for Mr. Nuttall, as he was recently defeated in the Stoke-on-Trent Central by-election, despite the area having the highest percentage of ‘leave’ voters in the West Midlands.
The party’s main concern is that Theresa May’s ‘Brexit means Brexit’ promise will take so many votes away from UKIP, Mr. Nutall will have very little chance of winning.
