Former UK politician David Silvester blames storms, floods on gay marriage

A British politician says the storms and floods that have hit the U.K. are divine retribution for the government's decision to legalize gay marriage.
"I wrote to David Cameron in April 2012 to warn him that disasters would accompany the passage of his same sex marriage Bill," David Silvester, who quit the Conservative party in protest at Cameron's decision to support same-sex marriage, wrote in a letter to his local paper.
Silvester is a member of the far-right Independent Party.
"But he went ahead despite a 600,000-signature petition by concerned Christians and more than half of his own parliamentary party saying that he should not do so.”
The councillor said the country had been “beset by storms” since the passage of the bill, which he blamed on Cameron acting “arrogantly against the Gospel”.
In a letter to the Henley Standard, Silvester wrote: “The scriptures make it abundantly clear that a Christian nation that abandons its faith and acts contrary to the Gospel (and in naked breach of a coronation oath) will be beset by natural disasters such as storms, disease, pestilence and war."
The party courted controversy earlier this month when it called for a five-year ban on immigrants settling in the U.K.

He's not a member of the "far right Independent Party." He's a member of the United Kingdom Independence Party (Ukip), which isn't a far right party.

This story and the lies about Ukip is just another attempt by Britain's left wing ruling Establishment at smearing a party they are running scared of. But these smear tactics aren't working. Ukip's popularity with the British public continues to grow. The idiots who continually and disgracefully smear Ukip as "far right" are only kidding themselves.

Good point. Let's replace "far right" with "monumentally stupid."

We could place such stupid labels on ALL political parties for the one or two idiots and weirdos that they have. We could easily tar everyone in a party with the same brush.

I could label the Labour Party "the anti-handicapped party" for the disgusting way they mock and pull faces at the Tory MP for Blackpool who has cerebral palsy.

Yet the Left don't do it with Left wing parties, They only do it with Right with ones.

Wouldn't be tarring them at all. Every political party in existence is dumber'n a sack of crowbars.

You could label the Labour Party "the collection of deluded asswits" without disagreement from me.

Precisely. That's what makes you a True Believer. I tar all wing parties, left or right, north or south, with the idiot brush.

There's really no difference, left or right. Wingers like you are the cannon fodder of politics.

The left is lying to you. So is the right.

Well, I suppose grasping half the reality is better than nothing.

Except for the idiocy that is represented by bitching about your neighbour not cleaning the dog**** out of his yard but ignoring the dog**** in your own yard.

And thinking that doing so is going to make that much of a difference in making the neighbourhood smell better.

It's all d*ck measuring. I don't know what's funnier, the obvious mendacity of the leaders, or the oblivion of the followers to the fears that cause them to slavishly follow.

Of course it is.

Personally I only find it funny up to a certain point. It's difficult enough to get a group of people to agree on a course of action, and many times coming to an agreement on a course of action can be a serious and important thing. But when this level of lunacy is thrown into the mix as often as it seems to be now a days, it takes already muddy water and pollutes it further. It's like adding nuclear waste to a cesspool.

Ukip leader Nigel Farage promises a purge of its more extreme candidates ahead of the EU council elections in May, in which the right wing, anti-EU party are predicted to come second within the UK. There are currently 13 Ukip MEPs (Members of the European Parliament) in the European Parliament.

A poll show Nigel Farage is the second-most-popular party leader after Prime Minister David Cameron.

However, Ukip are the most popular political party in Britain - and the Left are running scared.

The established parties and the (liberal-Left dominated media) are looking for any possible way of discrediting UKIP ahead of the European elections this year, and crucially the general elections in 2015. "...we are terrifying the political establishment," Farage was quoted by the Sun as saying.

The pledge comes after Ukip councillor David Silvester blamed the recent storms and floods on same-sex marriage and MEP Godfrey Bloom called African countries "Bongo Bongo Land" last year.

Mr Farage told The Sun (£): "Politics needs people with personality and backgrounds and they will all have one or two flaws. I have got my own red lines on this. That is real extremism and nastiness.

"We introduced a set of criteria by which we judged the exiting MEPs on how they've performed and what they have done.

"Some have been pushed and some have jumped. Of 13 MEPs elected, there are about five who won't be on the list of runners and riders again. Of all the candidates we fielded, only about half a dozen have caused us any embarrassment."

David Cameron tops party leaders poll

Ukip narrowly slipped ahead of Labour and the Conservatives in a poll to find out which political party voters viewed most favourably, but Prime Minister David Cameron beat Ukip leader Nigel Farage in a rating of the party's political leaders.

How the political leaders were rated:

David Cameron - Conservatives: 27%

Nigel Farage - Ukip: 22%

Ed Miliband - Labour: 18%

Nick Clegg - Liberal Democrats: 13%

UKIP purge is normal for a surging "new" party

Floods caused by gay marriage?


the commentator
On 19 January 2014

There's no doubt about it. If you want to make yourself and those associated with you look completely ridiculous, invoking the wrath of God for our earthly misfortunes is a darned good way to start. So the latest "embarrassment" for UKIP has understandably made the headlines.

A UKIP local councillor, David Silvester, who defected to UKIP from the Tories in 2012, is today widely quoted across the media as saying in relation to the recent floods and gay marriage:

"The scriptures make it abundantly clear that a Christian nation that abandons its faith and acts contrary to the Gospel (and in naked breach of a coronation oath) will be beset by natural disasters such as storms, disease, pestilence and war."

Oh dear. Many have also been quick to recall the remarks of Godfrey Bloom, a UKIP MEP for Yorkshire and the Humber, who referred to African countries last year as "Bongo Bongo Land".

So, that's that then. David Cameron was right. UKIP is a party of "fruit cakes, loonies and closet racists" after all. Don't go near them!

Oh, come off it.

The three big parties have all had scandals that are much worse than this, whether it be obsessions with Jews and Jihad (David Ward and Jenny Tonge from the Lib-Dems for example, and last night's remarks from Labour MP Grahame Morris on "Zionist trolls") to the fact that they've all had MPs over the years that either are in prison (e.g. Labour former Europe Minister Denis MacShane) or have been -- too many to clutter up the page by mentioning.

So, Nigel Farage has got a few nutters in the ranks. Big deal. He's right to be on top of it, of course. But UKIP has grown enormously in the last few years, and in doing so it was always bound to be difficult to vet every candidate. It's impossible to stop people losing the plot from time to time anyway.

The real deal here is that the established parties and the (liberal-Left dominated media) are looking for any possible way of discrediting UKIP ahead of the European elections this year, and crucially the general elections in 2015. "...we are terrifying the political establishment," Farage was quoted by the Sun as saying.

Too right they are, and the very latest opinion polls emphasise why he's right. The Independent on Sunday is running polls today showing UKIP (27 percent) as the country's favourite party, just ahead of Labour (26 percent) and the Conservatives (25 percent).

That doesn't quite translate into voting intentions but when you look at the figures on that -- the really important ones -- the polling showed Labour on 35 percent (bad news), Conservatives on 30 percent (bad news) , UKIP on 19 percent (game-changing good news) and the Liberal Democrats on 8 percent (wipe-out level disastrous news).

That's what British politics is about today. Labour seems stuck below the parliamentary majority threshold. The Lib-Dems have lost their protest voters since they're in government, and the Conservatives are never going to get to the 40 percent-plus level that would get them a majority on their own.

From the viewpoint of the established parties, UKIP has messed things up for everybody.

As a centre-Right outlet we'll close with a point that never goes down well with Tory or UKIP activists, but it's one we'll keep making until we hear a credible counter-argument.

The reality for the centre-Right is that unless you want the centre-Left to form the next government (or you're happy with the possible but probably unlikely prospect of another Con-Lib coalition) Conservatives and UKIP -- which will never get far in Westminster under first-past-the-post -- are going to have to work out some sort of electoral pact for 2015.

Most among the Conservatives and UKIP are vowing this will never happen.

But you'll be amazed about the compromises politicians will ultimately make if it means the difference between being in power, being in opposition or (in UKIP's case) doing fine in local and European elections but remaining largely excluded from Westminster politics.

To return to where we started, the fact that UKIP's nut cases are attracting so much attention merely serves to underline how important they have become. People usually don't waste their time attacking you unless you matter. And UKIP plainly does.

Yeah, sometimes too I will take it seriously at first and then just laugh at the end of it all, because what else can you do really?

I much prefer a bag or box of hair.

Just as dumb but much easier on the back when you need to toss it out of the way.

Every Country seems to have some sort of yapper blaming lousy weather on the Gays (although I didn't hear anything re; the Calgary floods or the GTA Ice Storm) but I still wonder if we eliminated the gays, would we have nice weather?




According to Lavendar Boy, the answer would be, for him, uncomfortable..........

Pastor Tom Brock isn’t the first clergyman to be outed as gay after condemning gay behavior. But Brock may be the first outed by a reporter who faked his way into a confidential 12-step program.


In a cover story published Friday that’s rocketing through the national gay press, Minneapolis-based Lavender magazine exposed the Minneapolis-based pastor’s struggles and desires as recounted to a support group for gay men “struggling with chastity.
