    There are reports that he has regained consciousness which is a good sign but its way too soon to say if he will make a full recovery. Wishing him & his family the best.

    Flippin’ ‘eck.

    Hope the man is OK, but … well, words fail me.

    What is an ‘altercation’ in this context?

    He was allegedly punched by … wait for it … Mike Hookem. No, I’m not making this up.

  • Thankfully, it looks like his injuries were less serious than first thought….

    Best wishes for a speedy recovery Mr Woolfe. Our thoughts and prays are with you.

  • Hope he has is EHIC card on him or a good insurance policy. We will all need good insurance soon.

    I still endorse my previous message of good wishes to the man – no one wants to see a prominent politician hospitalised in this way.

    But I am thinking, this is party that has in short succession
    1) sabotaged (and that is the only word I can find for it from the reports I have read, if they are to be believed) the careers of two possible female leaders each time a woman has stood near to claiming the leadership of the party.

    2) and then when the leadership came vacant again seen a key leadership contender allegedly challenge another prominent member to fisticuffs as if it were closing time in a pub, whilst inside a parliament building on international soil – a situation under public and media scrutiny in the widest possible sense. I know this sort of approach worked for John Prescott, but, blimey…

    Speaking as a man, UKIP is presenting to the world a culture of knuckle-dragging masculinism at its very worst. Can any women explain to me why women they know consider voting for this party?

  • I wish him the best recovery, although I question why a UKIP leadership candidate is getting into a punch-up, if that’s really what happened.

    Glad to see that, unlike earlier postings, we are now spelling his name correctly. It will be fascinating to discover who else it was who was involved in this fracas.
