UKIP MEP Roger Helmer compares disliking Earl Grey tea to disliking gay men
A UKIP Independence Party MEP has said that the public should be able to freely and openly dislike gay people like they would different types of tea.
Roger Helmer told The Sun it was okay for people to find homosexuality “distasteful if not viscerally repugnant”.
In comparing his thoughts on homosexuality to tea, Mr Helmer stated: “Different people have different tastes, you may tell me you don’t like Earl Grey tea. That may be a minority view but you are entitled not to like it if you don’t like it.”
