England: It seems members of far-right party UKIP are competing with the best of the Americans when it comes to bizarre scientifish ideas. Take Henley-on-Thames councillor David Silvester, who has a novel idea about the recent floods.
In the letter to the Henley Standard he wrote:The scriptures make it abundantly clear that a Christian nation that abandons its faith and acts contrary to the Gospel (and in naked breach of a coronation oath) will be beset by natural disasters such as storms, disease, pestilence and war.
He added:I wrote to David Cameron in April 2012 to warn him that disasters would accompany the passage of his same-sex marriage bill. ...
It is his fault that large swathes of the nation have been afflicted by storms and floods.
His party have been quick to point out that he is entitled to his views, but that they are not those of the party. And I am perfectly entitled to mock him for those views and note that they're not that unusual for a UKIP member. Perhaps UKIP's objection is that he neglected to blame the EU in some way?
