Diane James: UKIP loses its first female leader

New leader of the anti-EU UK Independence Party (UKIP) Diane James waves after she is introduced at the UKIP Autumn Conference in Bournemouth, on the southern coast of England, on September 16, 2016Outgoing UK Independence Party leader Diane James was at the helm for just 18 days before resigning on Tuesday — following a leadership battle won with her reputation for tough professionalism. James quit as UKIP chief citing “personal and professional” reasons, saying she did not have the full support of fellow MEPs or party officers to implement the changes she promised during the leadership campaign. Although less outspoken than her charismatic predecessor Nigel Farage, who resigned in July after achieving his political dream of helping Britain leave the European Union, James has still contributed to the controversy that often follows the anti mass-immigration party.
