Kent political leader to decide ‘within 48 hours’

Ukip leader Nigel Farage says he is to decide within the next 48 hours whether he will contest the parliamentary seat vacated by Chris Huhne - the Liberal Democrat who confirmed he was quitting earlier today.

Mr Huhne, who has a 4,000 majority in the Eastleigh seat in Hampshire, confirmed he was quitting after pleading guilty to perverting the course of justice.

Mr Farage, from Westerham, said he was “ruling nothing out” and would make a decision by Wednesday.
