UKIP Deputy Chairman Suzanne Evans has written a book “Why vote Ukip?” (2015) to explain what the party stands for. [1]

"She then trained as a reporter at BBC Radio Shropshire before finding work at BBC Radio WM in Birmingham. She moved to London to further her career, working as a reporter and presenter for various BBC Radio 4 and 5 programmes before setting up her own PR and Marketing Consultancy. It was in London that she first became involved in politics, becoming a Councillor in the London Borough of Merton – initially for the Conservative Party. She Chaired the Health Scrutiny Committee, taking responsibility for oversight of several major NHS reorganisations and investigations, and became Deputy Leader of the Conservative Group on the Council. She resigned with five others and joined UKIP on principle after finding she could not do what we she was elected to do and represent the best interests of her constituents. ‘Our biggest opposition was always from within our own party,’ she said at the time. In March 2014, Nigel Farage appointed her as UKIP’s Communities Spokesman, and then promoted her to national Deputy Chairman of UKIP after the 2014 European Elections (which UKIP won in the Shrewsbury and Atcham constituency). Suzanne is also passionate about the voluntary work she does. She founded the national patient health charity, Lipoedema UK, and advises the long term unemployed on how to set up their own businesses through a charity linked to the Work Programme, among other volunteer endeavours."
