Mr Farage announced an inquiry but said that it was unlikely to lead to suspensions or police involvement.
He said: “I don’t think that a political party can have an incident like this without having a look at it.
“I don’t see any need for the police to be involved, there are no complaints. Somehow I doubt people will be suspended.
“I won’t be on the inquiry myself. I suspect it will blow over and be looked back upon as one of these things that happens between men.”
There will be points for the spotters of feminist diatribes against this gross masculinity.
The point at issue was that there had been some talk of Woolfe moving over to the Tories. As, for an example, a certain DCB had done. Pity the punchee was who it was really.
