Nuttall: Leaving EU Wasn’t Main Reason People Voted For Ukip

The party leader told Iain Dale that Ukip’s appeal goes beyond UK independence and that the party is rebranding this summer.
Since the UK voted to leave the EU in June last year, Ukip has been through three leaders, lost its main financial backer and lost its only MP suggesting it is struggling to find its place in a post-Brexit world.
Paul Nuttall told Iain Dale that Ukip was as relevant as ever.
"When people voted for Ukip back in 2015, four million people by the way at the general election, the majority of them were not voting on the European Union issue alone.
"They were voting on issues such as law and order, education, defence, immigration. Ukip is a fully fledged political party with a raft of policies."
Mr Nuttall also said that the party was now preparing to re-launch itself.
"What Ukip is going to go through over the summer is a complete overhaul, a complete rebrand of the party, a restructure, a new constitution and it will feel different."
