Douglas Carswell has called for Nigel Farage, leader of the eurosceptic UKIP party, to step down, stating that the party clearly needed a fresh face.  According to reports, the roots of the argument are Farage and Carswell’s differing approaches to the EU referendum, in which the UKIP leader wants to focus on the dangers of migration to the UK. In contrast, Carswell takes a more liberal view of immigration and is working on a more cross-party basis on the Brexit campaign. Many Conservative eurosceptics and some within UKIP are worried that Farage is too divisive a figure to be associated with the EU exit campaign.
