The Ukip Suspensions & Resignations List

Includes all suspensions, ejections, deselections and resignations since 1st January 2016.

Previous names from other years are logged on many other sites. including here, here, here, and here, although many were missed off that we know of, so we've decided to create the definitive list starting from 2016.

We fully expect Ukip to keep us busy on this page. If you think we've missed one (heaven forbid!) please let us know.

Total so far this year: 33.
