Jane Collins, the Ukip MEP for Yorkshire and the Humber, said that South Yorkshire's police and crime commissioner Shaun Wright does not "deserve a second chance".
She told ITV News that his position is "untenable" and said that it would be "ridiculous" if he remained in his current role in light of yesterday's report into widespread child sex abuse in Rotherham - some of which took place when he was head of child services for the town.
International Monetary Fund chief Christine Lagarde has said the decision to formally investigate her over negligence claims was "without basis".
In a statement after a fourth round of questioning before magistrates, Lagarde said she was returning to work in Washington later in the day.
"After three years of proceedings, dozens of hours of questioning, the court found from the evidence that I committed no offence, and the only allegation is that I was not sufficiently vigilant," Lagarde said.
Two British jihadis have given a video interview in reaction to the filmed beheading of US journalist James Foley, telling CNN that the killing was a "justified response to the crimes of the US against the Islamic State".
Speaking from behind a mask, one of the men - who appeared to speak with a northern English accent - said that he would be "more than honoured" to take part in such an execution, adding "I hope that God gives me such a chance to do such a thing as the brother did with James Foley."

A doctor who quarantined herself for three weeks after helping to treat Ebola patients in Africa has returned to work, with a stark warning that the situation is spiralling out of control.
Specialist registrar Nathalie MacDermott, who works at the neonatal unit in Singleton Hospital in Swansea, said being there felt like "sitting on a time bomb".
She flew to Liberia with charity Samaritan's Purse to care for people affected with the deadly virus.
Of the 50 to 100 patients she treated while out there, she said, just three survived.

It felt like we were sitting on a time bomb which was slowly exploding under us and there was nothing we could do.
It's hard for a doctor to know that they won't be able to save the vast majority of their patients, but I already knew that when I went to Liberia.
There is so much work to be done and if I could get leave I would definitely go out there and help again. They need healthcare staff to not only care for patients but help to contain the spread of infection.
