Nuttall announces resignation as Chairman

Paul Nuttall announced, a couple of days ago, that he is standing down as Chairman of UKIP.

This is a shame because Nuttall is a real asset to the party but he is an MEP and has a young family and wants to commit more time to improving UKIP's fortunes in the north east euroregion of England.

Nuttall would make an excellent replacement for Lord Pearson as Leader but has already ruled himself out of the contest.  Perhaps he'll be able to stand as Leader now he's resigned as Chairman?
