The NEC has voted within the last hour and the verdict is that Anne Marie Waters STAYS on the ballot. UPDATE: Kipper Central understands there was no vote but Mr Bolton withdrew his challenge BEFORE the NEC voted. 

Democracy has triumphed for now in the humble opinion of this author but will Mr Bolton and his supporters be satisfied? Will they now move to the courts?

Congratulations due to the NEC for taking the right decision but this story still rumbles on. More to follow!

UPDATE: Kipper Central understands that Henry Bolton OBE has withdrawn his petition to remove Ms Waters from the ballot – CONFIRMED – Bolton issues Press Release saying withdrawal determined by threat of “counter legal action” but condemns “unforgivable” act by the NEC in allowing Waters to stand and says that the NEC “no longer carries the confidence of the Party” and that it’s reform “can no longer be put off”.

UPDATE: Jane Collins MEP has said on Facebook she is “very concerned” about any potential legal challenge to have Ms Waters removed as it “shows worrying concern for the gerrymandering of the democratic process within this party”. 

UPDATE: John Rees-Evans has praised Henry Bolton for withdrawing his legal challenge saying he wished to “applaud” his “moral courage” and “straightforwardness”.

    Not so much democracy, but the NEC confirming an earler decision, which was barmy to begin with. They often do this, but take a huge risk by misinterpreting the rules, if, indeed, that has happened. To any right minded individual banning AMW from standing as a parliamentary candidate, with no hope of winning, then allowing her to contest the party leadership is imbecilic. The earlier decision was so wrong, making this one suspect. It may turn out that they are wrong again, but let’s hope not. The word democracy is bandied about as if it were, somehow, the only consideration. Normally we refer to democracy and the rule of law. The law, is always paramount, and that includes the rules that our party is bound by. We don’t want a messy aftermath, after all.

    You had your chance to elect a forward thinking patriot as leader and you flunked it. Whether you like it or not, the threat of Islam is the biggest issue facing the British people and it is the biggest underlying reason for the Brexit vote. So, another own goal for UKIP, and now elects an ex-liberal democrat as its leader., thereby facing oblivion. various I left the party a year ago after the fiasco of Stephen Woolfe (alleged pugilist) plus the divisions on show by the most senior (egotistical) members of the party. You even seem to the interpret the word democracy in a ham-fisted way – let’s face it, UKIP has no future – time to pack up and go………
