Nigel Farage has vowed to launch a coup against Ukip leader Gerard Batten after Robinson’s appointment. He said today that he will be submitting a letter of no confidence in Mr Batten, and promised to “get rid of him”.

Journalism in Britain is under threat. The government is becoming increasingly authoritarian and our media is run by a handful of billionaires, most of whom reside overseas and all of them have strong political allegiances and financial motivations.
Our mission is to hold the powerful to account. It is vital that free media is allowed to exist to expose hypocrisy, corruption, wrongdoing and abuse of power. But we can't do it without you.
