Gareth Shanks was elected unopposed as National Treasurer of Young Independence, the youth wing of UKIP. However, he has been removed by that party's National Executive Committee.
He has, you see, dared to question the wisdom of having Neil Hamilton on that Committee, and doubtless as a European Parliamentary candidate next year. Hamilton was also recently a panellist on Question Time.
And young Shanks chairs Friends of Palestine in UKIP. Ah, there's the rub. There is the rub, indeed.
