Bitter tensions in Britain's anti-EU U.K. Independence Party (UKIP) turned into open war Tuesday as founder Nigel Farage called for its only member of parliament to quit.A long-standing feud between Farage and Carswell came to a head following UKIP's defeat last week in a by-election that had been viewed as the party's best hope to win a second MP.Farage suggested last week that UKIP lost in Stoke because it was not tough enough on immigration, an issue that dominated the EU referendum campaign.UKIP secured 12.5 percent of the vote in the 2015 election, but under Britain's electoral system, Carswell was its only candidate to win a place in the 650-seat House of Commons.
