England: The UKIP councillor who ranted on about flooding being caused by those nasty homosexuals ignoring his imaginary friend has been suspended by his party. But the cause of his suspension is not that they are embarrassed by his ridiculous views—they are shared by many in the extreme right organisation—but because he had been told not to do any media stuff, and he did.
UKIP leader Nigel Farage said he was entitled to hisstrong Baptist view of the world, but had defied a request not to do further media interviews.
Mr Farage said:So we suspended him, quite rightly.
He's not a spokesman for the party,Mr Farage continued, adding:I've never even met him.
