The quarrel arose according to sources from the Daily Mail after Woolfe had said that he might want to join the conservatives Theresa May. Hookem would have said that Woolfe was a 'joke' after Woolfe took off his jacket and suggested to continue beyond the quarrel.

'They had words, and suddenly they both had removed their jackets and went to fight out,' said a source within the party against the newspaper. During that fight Woolfe would have hit his head.

UKIP leader Nigel Farage said the two behavior 'is not very appropriate, 'but refused to go into the circumstances surrounding the fight. He said the matter will sort out further before it takes action. Farage stepped after 'Brexit' referendum as UKIP leader, but takes temporary charge since his successor Diane James, two days ago after only eighteen days leadership stopped it.
