UKIP could block leadership candidate who called Islam a ‘killing machine’

An anti-Islam campaigner’s Ukip leadership bid could be blocked by officials worried that her views will bring them into disrepute, according to party sources.

Anne Marie Waters was banned from being a candidate for the Eurosceptic party during their disastrous general election campaign after calling Islam “evil” and arguing that “Islamic culture does not fit with ours”.

Undeterred, the Sharia Watch UK founder announced her intention to stand in Ukip’s leadership election following Paul Nuttall’s resignation in June.

She did? So?

    And didn’t that work out well for them.

  • No gutts, no glory. Churchill & Gladstone knew how to discuss Islam and did so without apology. We need to clone them.

    What a bunch of pussies trembling if fear of what their enemies might say.

    If you banned her, and then you had a disastrous general election, it would seem that banning her again isn’t likely to improve things.
