Every Party Needs A Gimmick

UKIP, apparently, has decided to position itself as the anti-gay party.

Although according to them, it isn’t because they’re opposed to equality for all British citizens. No, it is something to do with being against “Europe”:

Farage believes the gay marriage issue will serve his party well by highlighting the impact of the European court of human rights on Britain and by showing Ukip can rally support around a touchstone issue. “Ukip is not a one-issue party,” he said. “But the gay marriage case is closely interwoven with the European court of human rights, as is so much of our life. Ukip will be seen to be a party campaigning not just about who governs Britain but about how we think that Britain should be governed.”

Uh huh.
