Winston McKenzie is the UK Independence Party’s candidate for Croydon North. He is also a former X Factor contestant, but don’t hold that against him.
Do, however, hold his homophobic craziness against him. Because, ladies, gents and undecided, he is a homophobe of the highest order. The crazy bit comes with the territory.
When asked by the Croydon Advertiser about gay couples adopting children, this is what he said:
‘If you couldn’t look after your child and you had to put them up for adoption would you honestly want your child to be adopted by a gay couple?’
We’re not social service-y or anything but we’re guessing if you’re not fit to be parents, you’re not really in a position to dictate by whom your child is adopted… heterosexual, homosexual, green, whatever.
‘Would you seriously want that or a heterosexual family?’ continued Winnie, whose own parents clearly didn’t teach him the waistcoat rule. If only they were gay! ‘Which would be more healthy for the child?’
We’re guessing parents who aren’t cunts would be a nice start.
‘A caring loving home is a heterosexual or single family,’ the strange man continued. Which is odd because when we last checked the Mo’ Manual it made no reference to gay people being incapable of love.
‘There are people out there who bring up their kids encouraging them to believe they are gay themselves.’
He’s obviously never met our mother.
‘If a child is properly heterosexual and they are put in foster homes without any thought or consideration of who they are or what their identity is, that’s not right.’
Winston’s on FIRE!
‘A child might be vehemently against being housed with a gay couple but you wouldn’t know until they are older.’
Much like racists don’t know they’re racists until they’re old enough to know they’re racist.
Oh but Winston isn’t all bad!
‘If there’s no alternative then maybe. If it’s a case of being adopted by a gay couple or deportation then what can you do? But if you ask me, I’m not for heterosexual children being adopted by gay couples.’
*makes a note of that*
Yet, in spite of the overwhelming evidence, Winston McKenzie, former X Factor contestant, horrific dresser and homophobic cunt, doesn’t hate gays.
‘I’ve nothing against gays. I wouldn’t attack a man or a woman because of their sexuality.’
Why thank you, Winnie.
‘They have fought very hard for the rights I have seen come to the fore, and that says a lot for some of them.’
Only some, mind.
This is Winston McKenzie of the UK Independence Party, and his bonnet. He is our Cunt o' the Day. And not just because of his dress sense. ,
