Ever since the Lewisham East by- election Anne Marie has been missing . So where is Anne Marie ? Shortly before this by-election Anne Marie stated publicly that Stand Up To Racism would not prevent her from appearing at the Lewisham hustings which is precisely what then happened. Prior to all this Anne Marie appeared almost daily on Youtube in her broadcasts to members and supporters of the For Britain Movement but this stopped more or less immediately following the by-election the result of which had been disappointing for For Britain. While all this is going on Gerard Batten is being interviewed almost daily on Youtube and looking every inch the natural leader of the ‘right’. And now today with the news that Farage may well be coming back to UKIP to head another Brexit campaign he is on Youtube and looking every bit the leader also. So where is Anne Marie ? Gerard Batten is capitalizing on Anne Marie’s absence big time – in particular in his Youtube appearances which have been coming one after another in rapid fire succession. And if the comments section of Youtube are anything to go by then he is winning people over big time.
As I said on this blog just a little over a week ago –
” Gerard Batten is a real problem for Anne Marie Waters and her For Britain Movement. People who might have been expected to join For Britain are now looking to Batten for leadership. Every time I go on Youtube or social media I hear more and more people say that Batten is the man. He , they believe , is the only one speaking out bravely against Islam and the mainstream. People are gullible and Batten knows how to capitalise on their gullibility. It is a sad fact that people , ordinary people , are often easily taken in. The history and ongoing success and popularity of the Labour Party is living proof of that. And for some reason or other people seems to like Batten.”
– So where is Anne Marie Waters ? A couple of weeks ago we had Sargon of Akkad and Paul Joseph Watson very publicly joining UKIP which Batten of course milked for all it was worth both in the press and on Youtube but yet again there was no sign of Anne Marie. Her absence is palpable – it is obvious to all and sundry to see ( or not see ) and the optics are all wrong. Her followers are asking this very question in the comments sections of the For Britain Youtube channel and none of this looks good.
