(not satire – it’s the UKIP!)

UPDATE – Oh dear. The infamous Westboro Baptist Church have tweeted that they endorse UKIP because of this story. Get out of that one Nigel:

Westboro supports and UKIP


UKIP councillor David Silvester – who resigned from the Tory Party over gay marriage – has written a letter to his local newspaper blaming the recent flooding across Britain on same sex marriage.

The letter appears in the Henley Standard but has not appeared online. Requests to the newspaper for a copy of the letter have gone so far unheeded.

So here’s the letter in full taken from photographs of the hard copy taken by Tamsin Borlase and posted on Twitter – big thanks to her:

UKIP gay marriage flooding


I hope Nigel Farage finds something more substantial than a tin-foil hat to protect him against the fallout from this kind of nasty homophobic nonsense still lurking in the ranks of his party.
