Steven Woolfe

Steven Marcus Woolfe (born 6 October 1967) is a British barrister and UK Independence Party (UKIP) politician, who has served as a Member of the European Parliament for the North West England region since the 2014 European election. Woolfe was considered a frontrunner in UKIP's 2016 leadership election, but was excluded from the race after submitting his nomination late.
Woolfe was born in Moss Side in Manchester and studied law at Aberystwyth University, after which he worked as a barrister. In 2011 he was elected to UKIP's National Executive Committee. He contested Stockport as the UKIP candidate at the 2015 general election.
On 6 October 2016 Woolfe was hospitalised "following an altercation" at a UKIP meeting at the European Parliament, after a reported row with fellow MEP and UKIP Defence Spokesman Mike Hookem. Hookem denied that he hit Woolfe and his spokesman stated that there was merely a "verbal altercation".
