Former Chief of Staff to Nigel Farage is rejoining Breitbart as Editor in Chief of Breitbart London, following UKIP’s massive gains at the UK General Election.
Raheem Kassam, who resigned from the UK Independence Party this afternoon, will announce live on Sky News this evening he is returning to the fold to bring his expertise of UK and international politics to the growing team.
Stephen K. Bannon, Executive Chairman of the Breitbart News Network said: “If UKIP’s Patrick O’Flynn thinks that he’s seen aggressive, Tea Party, American-style politics, he ain’t seen nothing yet.”
Kassam said, “It’s great to come home after a gruelling election campaign. I intend to give the left wing of UKIP — the people who tried to push tax raises and didn’t want to talk about immigration — the attention they deserve. I’m sure Louise Mensch will be delighted.”
He will report to Breitbart News Editor-in-Chief Alexander Marlow.
