I’ve got a horse and it was there in the field. And a donkey came up, which was male, and I’m afraid tried to rape my horse."He said his stallion had bitten the gay donkey in an act of self-defense.The Ukip politician believes people are actually interested in what he has to say and in why he’s standing.He apologized for the donkey story on the BBC’s Daily Politics program that it “was a bit of playful banter with a mischievous activist, I’m sorry if I offended anyone in doing that.”“I concede it was a mistake to be playful with an activist in a street. The fact is I’m not a politician. The guy was asking me questions in the street. It was an error of judgment.”
Gay Donkey Not the Only Issue Facing Ukip Party
https://youtu.be/JC17ZHU_ZNUThe UK Independence party was the main driving force behind the recent “Brexit,” or the United Kingdom’s exit from the European Union.Former party leader Nigel Farage, who has something of an everyman image in Britain, resigned recently and was replaced by fellow politician Diane James, who also resigned. The party leader slot for Ukip is now open to election.Mr Rees-Evans will have competition for the leadership slot, but those fellow Ukip members are not his enemies. The gay donkey, however, remains to be seen.“The enemy is any kind of politics in Britain that doesn’t represent the will of the people – the politics that puts people into positions of power, to pursue their own agendas, rather than the agenda that the British people give them,” he said on the BBC.
