    It stuns me how these people even get public representation in the first place.

    I admit I’m not the most politically correct person around, but this goes beyond the pale when one is put in a position of responsibility and status. It’s one thing to have a joke with one’s mates in the pub, but to come out with this crap as a councillor should demand immediate dismissal, and a ban from ever allowing this utter fckwit from ever holding public office again.

    1. For sure you are not the most politically correct ;-) (sometimes amusingly so!).

      However, as you rightly say this man is expected to show some level of responsibility and integrity. But being an elected official and making jokes (in a public arena) about paedophilia, prostitution and based on homophobia is not acceptable.

      These comments are not mere banter, and the repeated behaviour of him demonstrates his morality is in serious doubt.

    2. You certainly aren’t, so this condemnation from you shows just how repellent this specimen’s mind is.

        Have you thought about going on the game? ;)

      just another variation on the old “the lady doth protest tooooo much.

      My wifes rabbi not only had (consenual ) sex with a woman he was counseling.

      whic is against every professional ethic

      the dumb bottom dropping did what that guy did to Palin’s daugher – got her pregnant.

      (Palins btw an evangelical family that only likes hte idea of abstinence.

  2. Closet case!

    1. What a ghastly thought, I do hope not.

      1. I certainly do not want to think of him being a closet case – *barfs*

    This twit just can’t help himself…

  4. Yeeeeeeeeeah, we’re the ones that need help???

  5. In 2006, he was selected again by the Conservatives …

    Doesn’t really show the Conservatives in some parts of Wales in a good light, does it?

  6. Could this be a case of classic reaction formation…

    ..and as Carl Jung said:

    “The healthy man does not torture others – generally it is the tortured who turn into torturers.”

    1. It may or may not be the case that most torturers come from the ranks of the tortured but I do not believe that most of the tortured turn into torturers.

      1. Agreed qv.

        It is meant, I think, to indicate that internalised psychological disturbance has a tendency to find external scapegoats rather than dealing with and confronting inner demons.

        You’re right of course, in that many (perhaps most) people who have suffered torture, either physical or psychological, do manage to turn a traumatic situation into something that is altogether more wholesome.

          actually, its per psychs that about half of eg molested people become molesters. Which shows that not only the catholic priests are molesters but they were molested as youth by the heirarchy.

          the sooner the vatican is tossed into the lake fo fire the better

          Its also well known that most vicious criminals were molested in one way or another – eg sexual, mental, or physical eg beatings.

  7. so, a man who appears to be borderline sociopathic is telling LGBT people that THEY need emdical treatment?

    oh, the irony….

    Absolutely vile! If anyone has a “medical mental condition’, it’s him. The man is irrational. I think anyone hoping to enter politics should be given an psychological evaluation. Clearly this man is not fit for office. I detect a misogynistic attitude in this bigot too.

  9. Can I just point out how appalling the punctuation is on this story.

    There is not even a comma in the 1st paragraph.

    It makes the story very difficult to follow.

    1. DCBrighton 2 Aug 2012, 5:11pm

      In punctuation, commas have a specific role.
      See the one I used in my first sentence and in my next.
      The first paragraph is very easy to follow and grammatically, a comma would be wrong.

        The first paragraph is very easy to follow and, grammatically, a comma would be wrong. :-)

        1. DCBrighton 3 Aug 2012, 12:10pm

          True :)

  10. How sad we are to see the misogyny.

    1. Lyn David Thomas 2 Aug 2012, 3:59pm

      As the person who was originally involved with the usenet discussion with him where he publicly came out as a homophobe I have been constantly surprised that the conservatives would ever have him. Admittedly he isn’t in that party anymore and was elected as an independent. The independent group is in coalition with the Labour party in running Carmarthenshire, I wonder if the independent group has his support, if so they should be suspending him from their group. Of course he may be an independent independent, in which case its up to the good people of his ward to vote for someone more sane.

  11. Wow, misogyny and homophobia – add in a little racism and he’s got a hat trick. Some people seem to think that any position with slightest hint of power or authority grants them the right to say even the most hateful things.

    There needs to be a greater culture of responsibility and accountability in politics, we allow far too much to go unanswered.

  12. What worries me most is that he was voted in!! I thought democracy was supposed to weed this kind of creep out?

  13. Hopefully the police will arrest him for Twitter hate-crime!

  14. He looks like a total bottom.

  15. What a moron.

  16. Bless him. Just look at him. I don’t think the poor chap could do up his shoe laces without mummy helping him.

    Yes- he’s for sure the usual closet case; very twisted & full of self-hatred. His words are a classic fit for previous cases -from my ex-boss for example- the daily dose of vitriol was the same. then he was caught sucking off an underage guy in a toilet.

    1. Billy wingartson 3 Aug 2012, 5:48pm

      Bet he was also catholic.

      The requirements for going to a catholic school should be grinding the kiddies teeth to a knife edge.

      And having a few dogs around because they will eat any kind of meat, and lot of them will eat poo, which is what these people are anyway

      Didnt the English boarding schools have in fact if not in name a religious basis. I also googled “southern Baptist molest children and got a hundred thousand hits
