As Ukip reels from the resignation of its leader Nigel Farage, LBC's James O'Brien has a simple question for a leading figure in the party - but can he get an answer?

Roger Helmer is the party's MEP for the East Midlands and is seen as one of the party's most senior figures.

Now that Nigel Farage is standing down, James wanted Helmer to let LBC's listeners know: who can be held accountable for the political chaos since the EU Referendum vote?

"Who would we hold accountable for leading us out of the European Union if Boris Johnson and Nigel Farage are at home playing tiddlywinks?" asked James.

Helmer responded: "You can hold Ukip responsible because we really caused the referendum...the party will be there and the party will be accountable."

"But you won't have any MEPs because you won't be in the European Parliament any more and if things progress as seems likely judging from Douglas Carswell's conduct this morning in response to the resignation, you won't have any MPs either," said James.

"So how can you hold a party responsible that doesn't have any elected representatives in any parliament?"

James asked the question repeatedly - but would he get an answer? Watch above.
