Anne Marie Waters: Anti-Islam candidate to stand for UKIP leadership

An anti-Islam candidate has been allowed to stand for the UKIP leadership.

Anne Marie Waters, a former Labour activist and founder of the Sharia Watch pressure group, has previously called Islam “evil”.

Her leadership bid has split the party, with some MEPs threatening to quit if she was allowed into the race.

But the UKIP National Executive Committee, which vets all would-be candidates, has allowed her to stand.

    Unlike Farage I think if Waters gets the leadership UKIP will improve its ratings.

    How can anyone in UKIP NOT be anti-Islamic?

    In fact how can anyone who is aware of the true nature of Islam not be anti-islamic
