Ukip: The Second Time As...

UKIP descended into farce last night after the party suspended its former Deputy Chair for six months - for slamming a colleague who once compared gays to Nazis.

Suzanne Evans – who helped write the 2015 Election Manifesto – was dumped yesterday in the latest twist to a vicious civil war blazing in the right-wing group.

UKIP said she had been suspended for “publicly criticising a fellow candidate”.

She last month criticised Alan Craig – a candidate for the London Assembly – for advocating ‘gay cure’ therapy.

But insiders said it appeared she was paying the price for daring to challenge UKIP chief Nigel Farage.

Ms Evans – who went to the High Court yesterday in an attempt to challenge the suspension – is a supporter of Vote Leave.

She added: “I will look to take up whatever right of appeal is open to me.” ...

The Sun. 

Of course, if you're in the Conservative Party and believe in 'gay cure' therapy, they make you Work And Pensions Secretary.
