Ukip may sack branch leader
11:00am Tuesday 15th January 2013 in News
UKIP activist Dr Julia Gasper could be sacked as Oxford branch chairman over alleged homophobic comments.
Dr Gasper was said to have called gay rights a “lunatics’ charter” in an online members’ forum.
The activist, who contested the Oxford East seat for Ukip at the last General Election, is also alleged to have said there was evidence to suggest a link between homosexuality and paedophilia.
Party press officer Gawain Towler said: “Dr Gasper’s status in the party is under review.”
She was not available for comment last night.
