If you un publish a book does it stay in DRAFT forever? Or can it be removed altogether?

It stays forever. However, since books are displayed by the most recent worked on, it will gradually drift to the bottom.

(And it will not, of course, trouble you by its appearance in the sales reports!)

(The reason it stays forever is that the book stays forever on the Amazon servers, in case a purchaser wants to download a new copy of it.)

Surely if the author has unpublished his/her work, then Amazon shouldn't be allowing anyone to purchase further copies of said work?
