OK so Mr Farage admitted this week that his party simply does not have the mechanism nor finance to vet all their candidates, so a few nutters are going to slip through the net. Lets start the ball rolling with.... Mr John Williams, Forest of Dean, Gloucestershire County Council

 

Physical excercise prevents you becoming gay, claims UK councillor candidate

John Sullivan, a UKIP party candidate, up for election next week, has made a series of anti-gay Facebook comments, including congradulating Russia for banning gay Pride, and comparing gays to termites

27 APRIL 2013 | BY DAN LITTAUER

John Sullivan, a UK councillor candidate congratulated Russia on banning gay Pride marches and claimed regular exercise in schools can prevent homosexuality.

In a series of Facebook posts, Sullivan, who is a member of the United Kingdom Independence Party (UKIP) likened gay activists to termites and stated that feminism is evil and being gay is even worse.

Sullivan is standing for local elections on 2 May, to represent as a councillor the Forest of Dean area in Gloucestershire’s County Council, in western England, UK.

In a series of posts on the far right anti-gay Traditional Britain Group Facebook group Sullivan expressed anti-gay views, revealed Colin Cortbus, an anti-extremist campaigner and a Gay Star News reader.

In one post Sullivan said that regular physical exercise ‘prevents’ children from ‘becoming’ gay.

He recommended that ‘Victorian style’ regular physical exercise be reinstated in schools as it apparently ‘releases of tension’ which ‘prevents’ homosexuality’.

Gay Star News readers thought Sullivan’s ideas were hilariously bad: ‘Has he never seen a gaggle of gym-bunnies?’, read one comment.

One reader stated: ‘Regular exercise made me even gayer!!’

‘Not in my gym......’, said another.

Sullivan also expressed his opinion that gay Pride events should be banned in the UK in a similar style to Russia.

In a post on the far-right group he congratulated Russia on banning gay pride marches and hoped this would some day be implemented in London.

Reacting to Sullivan’s recommendations, Nikolay Alexeyev, co-founder of Moscow Pride and Gay Russia, told GSN: ‘Unfortunately Sullivan was born in the wrong country (and century).

‘I’d advise him to ask Putin for a Russian citizenship, he would make an excellent member of United Russia and his views on promoting hatred would be far better received.

‘Putin would very likely personally take a liking to him and congratulate him on his views’.

Sullivan also went on to call gay marriage supporters 'termites' mockingly reacting to an article on Conservative party members supporting marriage equality.

His antagonism doesn’t stop there, he also claimed that feminism is evil and that homosexuality is even worse (saying don’t even go there).

When it comes to education, Sullivan has some novel suggestions: the best way to rear children is to handle them in a similar way to dogs, who ‘learn’ that with obedience comes trust.

Sullivan recommended this ‘method ‘(which he said he tried and tested on his own children) be adopted by UK educational establishments.

Gay Star News contacted UKIP's Forest of Dean and West Gloucestershire Branch for comments but has received none to the date of the article's publication.

UKIP has recently come under fire for some of its members expressing anti-gay views

Nigel Farage, UKIP's leader, called upon Conservative party members to defect to his party over the government's pro gay marriage stance.

While, Olly Neville, the former chairman of UKIP’s Young Independent wing, was recently fired from his position for backing marriage equality.

Winston McKenzie, a UKIP unsuccessful MP candidate previously said that gay adoption is like throwing kids to the 'dogs'.

Former UKIP chair, Dr. Julia Gasper, was forced to resign when said gays are more likely to abuse children, branding LGBT rights activists as a ‘lunatics’ and claimed some gays prefer sex with animals.

Cortbus, who exposed Gasper and led to her eventual resignation, told GSN: ‘party-members and candidates like Sullivan evidence the dangers of UKIP's politics’.

clicky

was it Cornwall where their candidate Sue Bowen has been kicked out of the party for admitting that until recently she was BNP?

she's still standing (because she'd spent money printing her leaflets), but isn't canvassing, apparently she joined UKIP for the same reason she joined the BNP, too many foreigners taking over the country and being a farmer, she's worried the govt is trying to turn us French!

 

stay off the scrumpy lovely

Yeah it was her outing as ex-BNP (UKIP specifically refuse to accept any former BNP into the party) that caused Farage's admission that they couldn't vet all their candidates :mrgreen:

Gotcha. Still, it takes a strange person to fake his sisters signature.

Nothing prevents homosexuality like communal showers.
