Unfortunately, the membership are, in general, the absolute fucking pits: reactionary, stupid, bigoted and, as we are about to find out, extraordinarily homophobic.
Earlier today, Gawain Towler—the author of the excellent England Expects—wrote a post about Dolly Draper allegedly attempting to get into Gawain's pants.
[Dolly Draper]: Wouldn't it be fun if sometime in the future you were over on your side of the despatch box and I was on my side and we both knew that we had fucked?"
But the crucial bit is the following sentence...
I pointed out that just because I was bi this didn't mean I was prepared to go to bed with any man who asked.
So, Gawain admits that he is bi-sexual? Yeah. And. So. What? Most of us, I imagine, actually couldn't give a flying fuck. However, a blogger called Junius, whose tagline is...
A critical look at UKIP through the eyes of a long-standing member
... then published Gawain's post, in full, under the headline...
The blog entry that Gawain Towler did not want you to see: Towler admits he is bisexual
Oh my god, Junius? Gawain admits he is bi-sexual? Who would have thunk it? And he didn't want UKIP members to see it because...?
Well, the obvious answer is that Junius, being a colossal homophobe, thinks that bi-sexuality is eeeevil—in fact, this little shit would probably wheel out Deuteronomy 23. And, obviously, Junius reckons that the majority of UKIP members are also massive fucking homophobes.
Your humble Devil reckons that it is Junius who is the unpleasant fucking cunt here, not Gawain. And it is people like Junius—reactionary, homophobic, fucking cunts—who settled my mind about leaving UKIP.
Junius also points to the blog of Greg Lance-Watkins—first-class shitbag and screaming cunt (whom I have mentioned before). I had heard that Greg had cancer but, alas, it seems that the tedious little shit—who has included numerous libellous comments about your humble Devil in his irregular newletters—is not yet dead. Pity.
Anyway, his take it this... [Emphasis mine.]
#425* - EUkip MUST BE SO PROUD IN THE SOUTH WEST
But let us face it Gawain Towler is just the latest in the low grade expectations of EUkip
Here is the tasteless and demeaning filth Gawain Towler posted on his Blog besmirching and befouling the claim of England Expects and the words of Admiral Lord Nelson in so doing.
Greg Lance-Watkins is not a UKIP member: he is one of those who attempts to undermine the party and who concentrates his ire on Nigel Farage and his associates. Greg is an illiterate shit-burger who should keel over and die just as soon as possible. And, it seems, he is also a gay-hating cunt—what should they do, Greg, sew pink triangles on their clothes?
So, what is the upshot of all of this? Gawain has posted an amusing story about Dolly Draper trying to sleep with him; Gawain has admitted, in the process, that he is bi-sexual; a UKIP member has outed himself as a gay-hating bastard, and Greg Lance-Watkins is still a Grade A cunt (and homophobe).
Situation normal then.
UPDATE: obviously, this could have been more balanced. One way of doing so, at the very least, would have been to point out that I have no proof that Junius is, in fact, a member of UKIP. I would say though, that member or not, Junius is, undoubtedly, a total fucking cunt.
