I can't do better than five letters (TULIP) from today's conundrum, which I assume is what the thread title is. Can dictionary corner do better?

And also why's this piece of crap in General Mail Discussion ?

Can an admin move it to where it belongs. Use your own discretion on that. :wink:

Bloody hell, that's a rotten piece of design work. Had Narglefargle been down the pub?

"The Builder's Fist" takes on a whole new set of connotations.

It's very nice that Ukip has an LGBT section — congratulations, you're not the BNP. However, the party is still opposed to gay marriage, describing it as "political correctness". It is engaged in some preposterous fearmongering with its claims that, if a bill is passed, churchgoers who disapprove of gay marriage could be prosecuted for a hate crime. And Ukip representatives have repeatedly linked homosexuality with paedophilia, incest and polygamy, and suggested it is a disease that needs curing.

The other parties aren't perfect, of course. But if Ukip LGBT is to be taken as anything more serious than a PR ploy to make Farage and co seem cuddly and big-tentish, the party needs to change its policies and take action against outspoken homophobes. I'm not holding my breath.

I imagine it will go the way of the EDL's LGBT Division which collapsed after the EDL attacked Bristol's Pride march in July. When EDLers started boasting on FB about "seeing off the perverts" the few LGBT members they had publicly denounced them and left.

After all, it's 'just for fun'. How cynical can you get?

OH! Sorry, I didn't click on the link. :oops: I thought this was about; Lunatics, Gobshites, Bullshitters and Twats. But as I now know what it's actually about the UKIP bit in the title doesn't seem so redundant.

UKIP has a long way to go and a lot of house-cleaning to do before it can even begin to be described as gay-friendly:

http://www.pinknews.co.uk/2012/05/02/co ... dangerous/

I have a lot of gay friends and I an aften surprised how many of them are Conservative supporters. It's a shameful embarassment to admit to people that some of my best friends are...Tories. Doubt if any of them would stoop so low as UKIP, though.

Emmett may be interested to hear that I had a very interesting conversation with a couple of UKIPers on You Tube last night. One was a white supremacist, the other was not so moderate and resorted to making offensive remarks about the Scots, Welsh and Irish. Take a look, he calls himself ukculture http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=40chOBOUKBI

You can have the best policies in the world but you'll never get every ejit with the remotest connection with the party to know or follow them. Maybe a military dictatorship might manage the issues of order and discipline in such a way that these stories wouldn't come up but that's not the county we live in. Anything which has happened under the UKIP umbrella is magnified x10 in other longer established parties.

The second link. The man in the picture is a friend of the party and the whole thing was a stunt designed to draw attention to the fact that he was choosing UKIP over BP.

Never heard of this before. Not a decision maker or policy creator. You can't choose who supports you.
