    “I am the only MEP publicly supporting AMW. This has made me unpopular with my colleagues,”

    Probably made you more popular with the members though

    I would agree entirely with the sentiment expressed by Aggers, and almost every word. All of us in UKIP are fighting to achieve exactly the changes he identifies. I also agree that Anne Marie Waters is passionate, honest, determined and a great campaigner, but the skills of political party leadership and in depth experience of how things actually work elude her. That is why I stepped down and am backing Henry Bolton, under whose leadership the party can return to a position of influence and drive the agenda once more.
    Politics is about achieving change and under AMW our party would implode. She isn’t a good listener, I know from personal experience, she doesn’t take council very well, she doesn’t respond well when other political issues are raised becase her knowledge is lacking, more than one would expect. She is a powerful campaigner, but political leadership isn’t all about that. We will achieve progress in stemming the abuses of our society but to do that we need to return to relevance and a pert of that is to connect with the majority, which Henry Bolton can do. His background and experience puts him head and shoulders above every other candidate, not just in teh eyes of UKIP members, but in the eyes of the general public as well.

    AMW a 21st century Joan of Arc and a female Ghandi. This is as hilarious as the Labour Party manifesto. So funny Aggers.
    They’ll have you writing Jeremy Corbyn’s speeches after this one. UKIP needs JRE to save it from becoming extinct. He is a multi issue candidate and speaks on all subjects and not just on the one subject. The only initials you need to remember is JRE.

    I have always held you in high regard Stewart Agnew, you were without doubt the hardest working MEP in the party as your vote record has shown year after year but your train of thought in regards to A M Waters has certainly made me wonder if you have lost the plot somewhere along the line.

    AMW is correct in what she says about Sharia Law, FGM, Islamification and no one can deny that but I don’t remember you agreeing with me back in 2013 when I was saying UKIP need to listen to what Tommy Robinson and the EDL were actually protesting about. They were shouting about such atrocities long before AMW and were condemned (quite wrongly) for doing so. What is AMW actually saying that hasn’t already been said by the like of Nation Front, BNP, Britain First, etc and look how well they have all done in British politics. Is that what you actually want for the future of UKIP, to be polling alongside the BNP and getting nowhere fast?

    You understand politics well enough to know that to wield power of change you must first gain that power and that will never happen on an Anti-Islam ticket, only a fool would ever believe it could. If you do an WhoIs check on AMW’s website you will see that the former BNP poster boy Jack Buckby created her domain and campaign slogan ‘For Britain’ in April 2017, long before Paul Nuttall resigned and that leads me to believe that if she became the next leader of UKIP it would become nothing more than an Anti-Islam Pegida Party and that is no good to man nor beast in British politics. Her issue is a serious one and should be championed by UKIP but for her to lead UKIP on that one single issue would be political suicide.

    Maybe that is it, you simply want to put UKIP out of its misery and that would make far more sense to me than what I have just read in your article. It will be a shame to see so many good people’s hard work all be for nothing though….
