something of a dilemma for UKIP!
‘Apology over homophobia is not enough’
A DISTRICT councillor at the centre of a homophobia row has received an apology letter from the leader at Aylesbury Vale District Council
– but says heads should roll.
Councillor Steven Lambert, who leads the opposition Liberal Democrat group, has called for the leader and the chief executive to be removed over an alleged nickname used by four Conservative councillors.
He contacted police after a Tory insider passed on a document alleging Mr Lambert, who is gay, had been referred to as ‘Lily’ on four separate occasions since last year’s May elections.
Last week all Liberal Democrat members at Aylesbury Vale District Council, as well as their Labour and UKIP counterparts, sported pink anti-homophobia badges at a crunch budget meeting.
The badges, declaring Homophobia Is Gay, were worn to a full council meeting on Wednesday.
Since the Bucks Herald broke news of the allegations last month, Mr Lambert has received a letter from Councillor John Cartwright, leader of AVDC, stating: “May I apologise for any such remarks which may have been made by any member of the Conservative group.
“Should you wish to let me have details of those occasions, I will of course investigate matters further.”
And the letter asked Mr Lambert to accept ‘my sincere and genuine apologies for the issues which you have found so upsetting’.
But the Liberal Democrat leader said he was far from impressed.
He said: “What I’ve got isn’t an apology, it’s insulting.
“I’m so angry, and my group is livid.”
Mr Lambert met senior AVDC officers, alongside Superintendant George Wrigley, to discuss the allegations.
He praised police, but said he felt ‘let down’ by AVDC.
A statement from AVDC after the meeting said: “It was a private meeting and we have no further comment to make on the matter.”
The alleged remarks were made during Conservative group meetings, and at last year’s election count at the Waterside Theatre.
All four councillors reported to the police deny the allegation.

It seems that Chris Adams:
& Andy Huxley:
who between them ousted their LibDim rivals in the ward of Quarrenden with a combined vote of 761 votes out of the roughly 105,000 cast in the Aylesbury Council Election where UKIP & Labour both hold 3.4% of the seats and UKIP gained 14.7% of the overall vote.
Chris Adams & Andy Huxley must find their position particularly interesting as they try to explain to fellow Councillors and the electorate how UKIP and its leader and others were found guilty of anti homosexual behaviour in Court and Godfrey Bloom was officially censured by the then president of The EU’s so called parliament.
Let us not forget that Nigel Farage, who is effectively UKIP as the BBC & Independent have made very clear, is a leader of an anti homosexual Pan EU Political Group the EFD and Nikki Sinclaire was forced out as a UKIP MEP largely due to her openly stated homosexuality.
One wonders if the actions of Councillors Adams & Huxley on this issue are no more than dishonest face saving hypocricy or are they prepared to unequivocally renounce the clearly anti homosexual stance of UKIP as a party as judged by the actions of its corrupt leadership?
Let us not forget UKIP leadership took absolutely ZERO action when a member of their group openly supported Anders Brevick, nor when UKIP MEP Tom Wise was found to be stealing public funds, nor with regard to the openly exposed and vile Zionist bigotry of its then puppet leader Lord Pearson or even the incitement to racial hatred of UKIP MEP Gerard Batten with his openly anti Islamic writings and speeches – many will remember Tony Bennett and his vile anti Islamic stance and publications which UKIP tolerated for so long.
The Cyber Bullying attempts of its sock puppets with their lies and distortions are legion and there has been absolutely no effort made to control such behaviour with it actively encouraged in its Press Office and even the outright lies of Paul Nuttall its sometime Deputy Leader!
We note the fre3quency of the unjustifiable lies and dishonesty of Nigel Farage on the public media which so undermines the Party credibility.
Just how does UKIP claim to be working towards the goal of Leave-The-EU when it behaves thus and aligns itself with the gutter sweepings of politics and voices opinions and dedicates almost all its time to the enrichment of a small clique and the encouragement of a corrupt claque?
Perhaps someone can identify in what way UKIP is enhanced by membership and association indeed leadership of The Pan EU Groups The EFD & EAF other of course than the enrichment via such as the unaccounted 4000 group allowance and the use of the international travel budget to bribe and buy members to increase the 4000 budget!
Just how do the antics of UKIP leadership and its odious parasites make any discernible contribution to Leave-The-EU. We note the showboating and entertainment by its party bufoons on childish stunts and costly showing off and idiotic and demeaning speeches that sabotage the gravitas of UKIP, such that it might have been.
Just how does pointing out the fact that the EU’s stance over Greece is almost identical to that of Nazi Germany with the imposition of an unelected Gaulleiter acting as an authoritarian administrator – who will note this beyond the tiny group of informed UKIP watchers in Britain?
It is time UKIP was cleaned-up, root and branches and started acting in some responsible professional manner – one need only briefly read their latest attempt at a constitution to appreciate in all those needless words and posturing they have completely lost the plkot and the brevity of the cause ‘Leave-The-EU‘.
UKIP has clearly lost its way in a plethora of self serving, self enriching dishonesty and self congratulatory pomposity.
It must indeed be difficult for Cllrs. Adams and Huxley to square the circle but it is to be fair a difficulty suffered by a tiny number – those elected as UKIP Councillors who amount to somewhere between 10 & 15 in these United Kingdoms – unless you count the supposedly non political ranks of pointless busy bodies on Parish Councils!
