After Nigel Farage resigned as the leader of Ukip following his South Thanet defeat, he appointed Suzanne Evans as the party’s temporary leader. However, this appointment turned out to be fleeting, with Farage ‘unresigning’ days later.
Happily, Evans got a chance to relive her glory days when she appeared on BBC’s This Week. The producers appeared to have some fun with her on-air description, billing her as ‘Former Ukip leader, 8th – 11th May 2015’.
Given that she recently stepped down as the party’s policy chief following divisions in Ukip over Farage’s ‘unresignation’, Mr S wonders whether Evans might continue to use the BBC’s description for future interviews.
