    Sorry absolutely no idea but it's not a good looking plant so I would get rid.

    Could it be a Walking Stick Cabbage (Brassica oleracea)?
    Also called Giant Jersey Kale etc.

    Could it be one of the Malvacea ... possibly a tree mallow (lavatera)?
    If winter comes, can spring be far behind?

    Yep tree mallow they grow like weeds around here in the shingle banks by the sea pretty dark to light pink flowers mostly sometimes the odd white plant. The SW gales and salt air seems to do them no harm.
