The candidate who refuses to stand down

More ructions within UKIP, whose candidate in Wells, Jake Baynes, has refused to obey the the instructions of his party leader and stand down in the general election to help Conservative Euro-sceptic David Heathcoat-Amory

UKIP leader Lord Pearson, who had asked him to stand down, said: "There's a debate going on, there has been a disagreement, yes".

Indeed there has! According to Jake Baynes, "To stand down would be a betrayal."
