Homophobic Batten shoots straight from the lip

No one could ever accuse UKIP of not shooting from the lip. Their candidate for the London mayoral elections, the hapless Gerard Batten has promised to refuse funding for gay rights and ethnic minority groups. The hapless Gerard pledged that he would "cut all that rubbish" before then accusing Mayor Ken Livingstone of "cultural Marxism". UKIPwatcher is sure that Red Ken is quaking as we speak…

Having Mr Batten as candidate is a bit of a come-down for UKIP. In 2004 they were able to persuade millionaire boxing promoter Frank Maloney to stand for them. Without the media exposure brought to them by Kilroy, UKIP have to make do with a penniless bigot rather than a rich one. Fortunately, London's gay community need not fear the prospect of Mr Batten taking over city hall in May. UKIP polled 6% in the 2004 election and there's more chance of hell freezing over than this chump becoming Mayor.

Have to agree with Batten on this one. I'm sick of the controlling elite using taxpayers' money to buy political support from special interest groups.
