    i love UKIP.They make me laugh.

  3. all ways amazes me that wankers like this are so keen to stop funds going in the gay direction , yet never stop to think how much of the pink pound goes in to the coffers. We pay for many services we would never use, and yet we never moan or try to stop it. So now and again we want funds spent on items/functions/policies that do relate to us.Is that not only fair for every one???

    anon, am with you on that one. We should demand our pink tax pounds are withheld from supporting the C of E and other denominations. Let them go out and find real jobs instead of sponging off my taxes and denying us the right to fully equality.

    for far too long us tax payers have been funding the lavish lifestyles of these layabouts! What are out taxies to pay for these dog-collerd weirdos to sit around all day talking about ‘God?’ God? God? Scrounging more like! Make them dig rods! This fictional character they laude, this Jesus, had a trade so why can’t they? Eh? Eh? I’ll tel lyou why – they’re Anti-Socal layabouts! Havn’t you noticed how they creat discord? How they force their views down other people’s throats? How they contrubute to violence on our streets by condoning homaphobia sexism and poverty?Make the lazzy so and sos work for a living! ‘Fishers of men?’ Fishermen work hard, these lazzy beggers do nothing all day!

    Elizabeth, they are nothing more than parasites but lets take comfort they they are in slow decline, rotting on the vine, falling into decay and hopefully blissful oblivion. They are irrelevant to 21st century living,if they can’t adapt, that will only hasten their demise, and a good thing too!

    About time too.Well done UKIP and well done Gerard Batten.Money is too scarce these days because of all the taxes we pay to support this stuff and the corrupt Communist style EU.

    ‘back in may day it was all churches, churches as far as the eye can see…’to all the racist and homophobic idiots posting here: why you posting in defence of this guy? You UKIP members and/ or campaigners? If so you are breaking Electroal law.Just thought I’d warn you.

    Elizabeth, some of the “idiots” are also gay themselves, isn’t that sad?

  14. elizabeth veldon 30 Jan 2008, 6:04pm

    hey Robert I’ve been around the sceene long enough to know just how stupid, racist, sizest, sexist ect, ect people are but I suspect we’re gettin gbombed by suporters of the party like back in the days of a certain Christiam Party it’s wiser for me not to mention.

  15. Robert, ex-pat Brit 30 Jan 2008, 6:12pm

    Elizabeth, I know who you mean, enough said. Glad we’re on the same page too.

  16. he is an idiot. All UKIP are. Who does he think lives in London for pity sake. I hope his sausage drops off.
