I really don’t know where to start with this story I said many months ago that the best thing about the UKIP party getting more press exposure would be their inevitable public implosion once more of their members got to be heard.
Here (after the ridiculous buffoon Godfrey Bloom) is another example: A UKIP Councillor blaming the recent atrocious weather on the government’s decision to pass a bill permitting equal marriage.
A UKIP councillor has blamed the recent storms and heavy floods across Britain on the Government’s decision to legalise gay marriage. David Silvester said the Prime Minister had acted “arrogantly against the Gospel”.In a letter to his local paper he said he had warned David Cameron the legislation would result in “disaster”. UKIP said Mr Silvester’s views were “not the party’s belief” but defended his right to state his opinions.Mr Silvester, from Henley-on-Thames in Oxfordshire, defected from the Tories in protest at David Cameron’s support for same-sex unions.In the letter to the Henley Standard he wrote: “The scriptures make it abundantly clear that a Christian nation that abandons its faith and acts contrary to the Gospel (and in naked breach of a coronation oath) will be beset by natural disasters such as storms, disease, pestilence and war.”He added: “I wrote to David Cameron in April 2012 to warn him that disasters would accompany the passage of his same-sex marriage bill. But he went ahead despite a 600,000-signature petition by concerned Christians and more than half of his own parliamentary party saying that he should not do so.”He then went to on blame the Prime Minister for the bad weather: “It is his fault that large swathes of the nation have been afflicted by storms and floods.” He went on to say that no man, however powerful “can mess with Almighty God with impunity and get away with it”.
So, in summary, the gays did it.
It would appear that no country has a monopoly on religious nut jobs getting into politics and mixing the two to unfortunate effect.
I don’t think it’ll be long before the next UKIP car crash. Excellent sport, if nothing else.
