This UKIP Candidate Definitely Not Racist or Homophobic


Our colleagues over at The Sun put 18-year-old politics student Bradley Monk, standing for UKIP to get on the Hampshire County Council seat Winchester Eastgate tomorrow, on page 2 after he put pictures of himself wearing a creepy Jimmy Savile mask on his Facebook page. Further examination of his Facebook reveals him dressed in a bikini having a drunken snog with Eric Cunha, another UKIP activist. Guido thinks we can safely say this is one UKIP candidate who is neither racist or homophobic…

    ” Guido thinks we can safely say this is one UKIP candidate who is neither racist or homophobic…”

    So the charge has stuck then .

    Tho must say that all parties have loons in em.

    18 or 19

      The infamous Eric Cunha says:

      He’s 18. The sun and the guardian were both incorrect with their info. You’d think national newspapers would actually do their research properly!

        I notice Guido says “our colleagues” over at the Sun, Rupert must be so proud

    You have missed the obvious alternative explanation; he is blind and stupid.

      He wore the mask at a haloween party. I find that amusing. Where’s the scandal?

    Richard says:

    This post is slightly homophobic though, the subtext being: “he’s wearing a bikini. What a gay!”

    Stay classy, Guido.

      Have you considered going back to the Guardian and staying there?

        Richard says:

        Not quite. We take it in turns to pop over here; my shift isn’t quite done yet.

        By the way, his Facebook profile shows that he’s against gay marriage. Not that anyone is expecting any journalistic rigour from you.

          Go away Richard, you’re making yourself look silly now.

          I’m against gay marriage and I have gay friends.


          • CarryHole is a vile Hunt says:

            I wonder how they’ll treat polygamy?


          • Simon Geraghty says:

            I am truly shocked that people consider polygamy a treat


          • An honest Tory says:

            And that proves what? There is a small minority of MPs who are homophobic but who maintain friendship with selected gay MPs. It does not make them less homophobic.


          • All Tories are Cretan says:

            True. There are a small minority of gay MPs who like to let slected homophobic people think they are their friends. It doesn’t make them any less corrupt and useless.


          • Old Blind Pugh says:

            I suppose it depends how much more senior the gay ones are


          • Dennis Nilsen, Socialist Workers Party Member (Defunct) says:

            You have gay friends, do you? You could have fooled me, you homophobe! I’ll tell you what though, maybe you could campaign for my early release and then, once I’m free, you could come over to my dingy flat and we could talk and talk about gay rights all night long.

            I make an excellent spaghetti bolognese, you know.


          • My girlfriend is called Dolly the Sheep, a bit hairy but like them that way says:

            My definition of gayness is this – you either pot the pink, or you pot the brown, Argument over. Right, I will hand you over to Maldwyn, who will explain these things very much better than me,

            Clear now flowers?

      4. @ Richard

      Well said Comrade. A judicious use of ‘subtext’ allowing you to spew out the usual toxic hateful ideology.

      Hang on though Dick. Isn’t putting his tongue in blokes mouth rather gay act or have I gone and got off message again?

        “Isn’t putting his tongue in blokes mouth rather gay ” seems rather dangerous to me

      Ed the decent, polite, caring and correct thing to do is write private letters and not issue a flippant “blanket” tweet which I suspect is mistakenly intended to make you look good anyway.


      • 50
        Simon Geraghty says:

        I find this absolutely sickening and abhorrent. I think the vast majority of British people will find this shocking – it’s not funny at all, it’s dreadful and I can’t believe that anyone would think that Ed Miliband could ever look good.

    The Peoples Front of Eastleigh says:

    The Conservatives, the Lib Dems and the Labour party are out and out liars and thieves. the EU referendum, the expense, end child poverty, leave the NHS alone etc. No wonder people are turning to this bunch of half wits and misfits when the Big 3 consistently don’t deliver and just look after their own interests.

    All day long they chattered away,

I am sure one, maybe two, are fascinated with the bollocks that I post here. With that, I’d be happy with that. Hiss, by the way, you haven’t been I one of those funny private hospitals and had a lobotomy, by the way, like various members of the royal family, when they went dolally?

    This is one UKIP candidate who is neither racist or homophobic…but a wee bit strange. Now in a few years when he has reached adult status, perhaps he will wonder about his choice of trustworthy mates.

      It means we Liberals and similar parties will be stood as usual, similar to a pension queue for our massive handouts and then backhanders down the golf club with the senior council executives. We’ll know the outcome by recording what people say, if they are telling the truth.

    I know this if off topic but I’m looking into starting my own weblog and was curious what all is required to get setup? I’m assuming having a
    blog like yours would cost a pretty penny? I’m not very internet savvy so I’m not 100% certain.
    Any suggestions or advice would be greatly appreciated.

    We already have in place the methods in place to ensure over the next two years that Ukip will die on the vine and not affect the current system.
