UKIP suspends Councillor who blamed gay marriage for bad weather

Responding to outrage, The United Kingdom Independence Party leader Nigel Farage suspended Councillor David Silvester:

Nigel Farage hit back at attacks on Ukip, after he suspended a councillor who blamed the Christmas and New Year floods on David Cameron’s decision to legalise gay marriage.
David Silvester claimed last week that the country had been ‘beset by storms’ because the Prime Minister had acted ‘arrogantly against the Gospel’ by passing same-sex marriage laws.

Ukip’s leadership had originally refused to discipline Mr Silvester, 73, a town councillor in Henley-on-Thames, Oxfordshire, saying that everyone was entitled to their religious views.

But he was finally suspended yesterday afternoon after defying a request not to do further interviews on his beliefs. 

However, Mr Farage today suggested that the remarks had only become a story after Mr Silvester joined Ukip from the Tory party, where he had previously aired similar views.

Farage has disciplined a nutcase in his party, but still nothing from Labour Party leader  Ed Miliband on the latest online outburst from his idiot MP Grahame Morris, who implied an equivalence between Nazi Germany and Israel yesterday.
