Henry Bolton’s sacking as leader of UKIP and the impending leadership contest it brings has once again fallen on that time of the week when most people take the bins out, according to reports.
After an overwhelming vote of no confidence against him by party members on Saturday in the wake of a string of resignations by high profile UKIP members last month, recently single Henry Bolton has been removed from the post of party leader, probably ensuring that in the future he will at least to have a quick glance through any potential girlfriend’s social media accounts before starting a relationship with them.
For the public, however, the events have once again provided a handy reminder that tonight is the night to put the bins out for collection.
Father of two Simon Williams told us, “I can never remember what day our fortnightly bin collections are, so a crisis within UKIP’s leadership is helpful to me as they always seem to coincide with bin day.
“It’s quite fitting that as I take my bin bags of old, festering rubbish out this evening, the UKIP leader is gone, and my bags of stinking, pointless rubbish will be gone, too.
“I honestly don’t know what I’d do without a UKIP leadership contest to remind me that bin night has come round again.”
Henry Bolton’s dismissal will force UKIP to hold it’s fifth leadership contest in eighteen months, which is only slightly more frequent than residents of Birmingham can expect their bins to be collected.
