This Is Croydon: This Is England

UKIP'S candidate for the Croydon North by-election says gay people should not be allowed to adopt.
Winston McKenzie said placing children with gay or lesbian couples was "unhealthy" after retweeting an article written by a National Front supporter who claimed there was "no such thing as homophobia".
The author wrote that...
"As a National Front type, I fly the Union Flag outside my house and will fly it at half mast, or not at all, if homosexual marriage becomes law," he added.
The message re-tweeted by Mr McKenzie included a link to the article and attacked Labour's Steve Reed and Respect's Lee Jasper for supporting gay marriage. It ended with the message "Vote NF".

Croydon Advertiser.

Ironically UKIP chose a black candidate to try and show they're not just a bunch of blazered saloon bar bigots.
Also note Mr McKenzie is rather flamboyant and is both a former hairdresser and boxer.
He is also possibly the only person to have tried to stand for just about every major UK political party from Labour through the Lib Dems to the Tories - and is clearly as mad as a box of lorries, and whose political principles are like those of the late Marx (Groucho); "If you don't like them, I have others."
Oh, and the tit was also on X Factor.

PS Here's Ukip's recent "Now I'm not a bigot but..." statement on gay marriage.

Update: The Labour candidate, Steve Reed, a gayer, won with a "whopping" 65%.
