Anne Marie Waters is the sort of passionate campaigning voice that UKIP needs to be a successful party again, so why has she been sidelined? The likes of Bill Etheridge, the Golliwog collector, and Suzanne Evans the closet Tory, have made it impossible for real radicals to stand for UKIP, and now they're facing oblivion!
