  1. This allegedly educated woman is definitely not. Does she really realise how offensive her comments are – I am pleased she has been relieved of her duties. Lets hope her comments come back to haunt her at every point of her life – as this type of rubbish she is spouting is harmful to everyone in contact with her.

    1. Relieved of her duties but still part of that hideous party!

    2. of course she realizes how offensive she is. That is her cachet for attracting extremist right wing pigs to support her. Thankfully the majority of people are disgusted by her views.She has no political future, and she has made herself an embarrasment to her children for ever more. How awful for them to be related to her.

  2. She certainly looks like she’s the unlikely and yet successful product of an incidence of bestiality.

    And the same can be said of her former cohorts at the UKIP. And those who support them.

  3. So long, farewell auf wiedersehen, Goodbye!

    1. And she’s a MUNTER!

  4. Wonder what party she’ll join next?

    Three guesses? (NOT)

  5. PS. Failing that- She could become a columnist for The Daily Mail?

    1. Paula Thomas 17 Jan 2013, 10:20am

      Or, on last weeks performance, The Observer

    2. Robert in S. Kensington 17 Jan 2013, 12:29pm

      I won’t be surprised if the BBC invites her for an interview. They love and promote bigotry.

    3. ...Paddyswurds 17 Jan 2013, 12:36pm

      Having been to her blog and having attempted to read it I would say she would have to learn English before she could do that, lax as the Daily Mail is…. For someone with a supposed English degree from Somerville, her grasp of the English language is woieful. How on earth did she gain such a “doctorate” if in fact she actually has one. If so Somerville really needs to review how it awards such doctorates and the standards required….

      1. ...Paddyswurds 17 Jan 2013, 12:53pm

        woeful**
        Why is there no edit facility on this site So easy to do. Just a little tweak of the cheapo software would suffice Pink News and Felix Renicks

  6. These people seriously worry me. I actually do think they believe the stuff they are saying. Thats worrying!

    1. Disgusting, isn’t it?

  7. Spanner1960 16 Jan 2013, 11:26pm

    About time.
    The woman is complete crackpot and should be in a position of power in order to spread her malicious and unfounded opinions on others.

    Let’s just hope she disappears back into the cesspit from whence she came.

  8. How long before NOM recruits her to demonstrate the tyrannical oppression good god-fearing people face as a result of Marriage Equality?

    Bye, bye you dumb ****.

  9. I think the poor woman is probably mentally ill and UKIP should never have used her, but they are probably desperate for people.

    1. Agreed. She doesn’t seem well.

  10. Dr Gasper…is that her porn name?

    1. I would NOT fap to that.

  11. Gawain Towler 16 Jan 2013, 11:59pm

    The truth and your headlines don’t really ever see eye to eye do they? You obviously have an agenda, and will prosecute it through thick and thin.

    This is what I said,
    “I can confirm that Dr Gasper is no longer the chairman of UKIP Oxford constituency association.”

    That is an end of it. “Has been removed” is something entirely different. Words matter, and so do meanings.

    1. That is surely not the real name of a bone fide straight man. It sounds more like a porn star.

    2. Well if you are saying she wasn’t removed you are actually making it worse. The fact that she may have been removed was showing you in a good light. So well done on ruining even that good PR.

      “Nigel Farage, party leader, said: “I have never even heard of these people.”

      Maybe he should read Pink News for information on his own members views?

      1. Lynda Yilmaz 17 Jan 2013, 7:41am

        If she wasn’t removed, she should have been. What happened then? Did she get reprimanded for giving away UKIP’s secret agenda (since you like that word). And yes, we all have an agenda here, which is to work towards a time when homophobia becomes a thing of the past, when ALL human beings are treated with the same respect and decency and valued for who they really are not their gender, race or sexuality. And you are right. Words DO matter and when public figures utter words designed to instil hate into the minds of the ignorant by using emotive and subjective language and quoting statistics as though they are fact, then the people who utter those words should be ‘removed from office’

    3. Poor Gawain Towler. You sound as if you think you are being persecuted. But don’t worry, you’re in good company. The 1000 plus priests who signed a letter claiming gay marriage would lead to their persecution are singing from the same hymn-sheet as you. You say the writers on Pink News “obviously have an agenda”. Well, surprise surprise! A gay newspaper having a gay agenda – like trying to expose an organisation that is masquerading as a purveyor of the truth, like a religion or a political party – that’ss enough to make even Dr Gasper gasp again!

  12. Bill Cameron 17 Jan 2013, 12:16am

    Until quite recently UKIP has been seen merely as a fringe party – no-one really much cared what they thought.

    However, now they are seen as perhaps something more than ‘fringe’ so a much more intense light is being shone upon them and their policies – resulting in the ‘purging’ of those who do not fit with the image they now wish to portray.

    Like others here I am glad to see that Dr Gasper is no longer Chairman of UKIP Oxford although am curious to know HOW this happened – by some kind of vote or by mere ‘edict’ from Farage? Decidedly it remains a deeply suspect organisation that merits continuing critical scrutiny.

    1. That There Other David 17 Jan 2013, 9:57am

      Give it a year and they’ll be back to the fringe. Just like Griffin and Co. had a brief flirtation with popularity yet withered under the spotlight.

      As for Dr. Gaspar, where’s Dorothy with a bucket of water when you need her?

  13. What the hell does “normality of human life” even mean?? Are you stupid?? You probably believe in sky fairies so you wouldn’t be aware that the whole point of evolution is to create diversity and variation amongst species. There is no normal- it is a man-made notion. Try again moron…

    1. Don’t feed the troll! He comes on here all the time and these reactions are just what he wants.

      1. Or a date maybe ;) He does love the attention of gay men :D

  14. I find it worrying that those who vote for the Tories have a rough idea that they’re very reserved on social matters but those who are voting for Ukip really have no idea how strange and bigoted they are.

    They see Nigel Farage, they read about all the horrors of the EU in the Daily Mail, and they think nothing of entrusting them with a vote.

    It’s a terrible decision for a protest vote. Go for Greens or Nationalists instead if you have the opportunity. Even LibDem for goodness sake.

    1. I’d rather vote green or labour thank you

  15. The vies of this woman… They disgust me! I don’t care if you support homosexuality or not, but this is full-on bigotry. Sadly, so many people in this world completely agree with her… TOO many people, I may add. Bestiality, pedophilia, oi. There are as many heterosexual beastliacs and pedophiles and necrophiliacs as there are homosexual. Plus, I fail to see where she drew her sources.

    Five bucks says she joins Westboro within a week.

    1. *views

  16. Homosexuality WAS normal, until Christianity got big. Coincidence? I think not.

    1. ...Paddyswurds 17 Jan 2013, 1:12pm

      Homosexuality WAS normal, until the advent of the Abrahamic cults. Deffo not a coincidence….

  17. Just take your tablets and be quiet, you silly little boy.

  18. GingerlyColors 17 Jan 2013, 7:01am

    Now I would like to see Nigel Farage reinstate those members who supported gay marriage.

    1. I think that we have more chance of seeing a pig fly!

  19. PeterinSydney 17 Jan 2013, 7:25am

    Good riddance, never come back.

  20. maybe she can go to America and join westboro baptist church ! Vile old bag

  21. It is this woman who needs to be locked up under the Mental Health Act.

    She is right on one thing, I do have gratitude to straight people on whom I was reliant on being born. However, those very same straight people taught me love and tolerance of others. Something, it is clear that her own parents failed to do.

    1. Robert in S. Kensington 17 Jan 2013, 4:05pm

      Yes, and straight people will continue to reproduce gay children ad infinitum, thankfully.

  22. Did mummy let you use the computer again?
    No… well go back to your playpen, like a good boy!

  23. She is completely delusional. I wonder if her “doctorate” is for real.

    1. What in, when and where from? I would love to know.

    2. “Julia Gasper has lived in Oxford for more than twenty-five years. She was born in India, brought up in London, went to university in Reading and Oxford, and has a D. Phil. in English from Somerville College. She is now a lecturer and writer. Her two children are both at university.” from UKIP website.

      Had to know.!

    3. her doctorate was a pretty shoddy effort. A redacted version was published and sold a few copies. Although she has made several claims at having published other books, or being in the process of being published these claims are completely spurious. At most she has written a couple of substandard embarrasing articles for an online blog about Oxford, and one derivative paper in an obscure scholarly journal. Her creds are largely bogus. Shame on the summer school brochure which repeated her bogus claims to published fame. … but she lost that summer job so I guess she didn’t fool anyone for very long.

  24. I obviously agree it is a good thing she has gone – she has said some vile and frankly crazy things – but can people stop making disparaging remarks about her appearance? It has nothing to do with and just makes you look like the moron.

    1. ...Paddyswurds 17 Jan 2013, 12:49pm

      @L Thomas….
      ….. Get over yourself….It could be that her countenance has made her heart so bitter and twisted. Ugly women are sometimes disparaging toward Gay people who are as a rule always quite cute or indeed beautiful… Comments on her looks are hardly earth shattering when one considers the things she has to say about a large part of British society and she should count herself luck to live in a society where she is respected as a woman, given the state of things in the country of her birth……..

      1. Is…. Is this a joke?

      2. I think Gasper is contemptible, but then so are you. are you serious? what a ridiculous thing to say. Shame on you… for puking up such arrogant gay male anti-women crap.

  25. ...Paddyswurds 17 Jan 2013, 12:41pm

    This is just the best news to wake up to on a winters morning. I predicted this outcome for this ugly harridan last year and I am so pleased that my reading of this excuse for a woman and indeed a mother of young children was correct. I pity her children and Tink that people like this should not be allowed within 50 meters of anyone under 21 years of age. She is a danger to the human race and this is Karma writ large!

    1. ...Paddyswurds 17 Jan 2013, 12:42pm

      think**

  26. As usual, she says she has received death threats and has 24/7 police protection. She’s a bloody liar as well as headcase.

  27. How does UKIP expect to survive as a care home for the incurably vile if it’s just going to kick out people like Julia Gasper and Geoffrey Clark? You’re not going to be left with a lot of people if you keep this up.

  28. ha f*ing ha. the douche can suck on that!

  29. I believe this very sick woman should be detained indefinitely under the mental health act.She is more akin to Hitler and should have been put down at birth.

  30. rob fielder 17 Jan 2013, 5:51pm

    personally i dont have a problem with gays.. its not for me to have one… but i do sometimes with you would just stfu about being it… invent your own form of marriage if you insist of having one. (although i cant think of any other animal offhand that forms same sex PARTNERSHIPS..not meaning of course that human behaviour necessarily has to follow what the rest of creation does).. and just get on with your lives and leave the rest of us to quietly get on with being hetero… and ok.. if someones opinion offends you, live with it. people crying their eyes out about people’s opinions offending them is what is killing off freedom of speech in this country.

    1. then you are totally ignorant of the fact that homosexual relationships exist in many other animal species… so why don’t you just butt the f out out of judging people different from your pitiful self

      1. rob fieler 19 Jan 2013, 8:03pm

        firstly i didnt say that homosexual relationhips dont exist in other species… i said i have never known of any forming same sex PARTNERSHIPS… secondly, typical blind minded reaction.. somonee says something you dont agree with, go on the offensive. 3.. well there isnt a 3, i just dont like even numbers…..

    2. Looks who’s reading a gay news?? Closeted probably? You need help

  31. Well deserved moron.

  32. I think this creature would fit in well with the likes of Richard Littlejohn and the homophobes at the hate mail. she also has the look of another born again, brain washed in religious crap.
