Scottish Ukip chairman faces sex call claims

This Blog has just one comment to make:

UKIP. Yet again.

What conclusions are we to draw from the fact that this party’s members keep getting into trouble – if any?

The chairman of the UK Independence Party in Scotland has stood down after appearing at Glasgow Sheriff court accused of making sexual phone calls.

Ukip has confirmed that Arthur Misty Thackeray, has temporarily stood down.

A spokesman said it would be “inappropriate” to comment during a live police investigation.

The Crown Office confirmed that Mr Thackeray, 55, appeared at Glasgow Sheriff Court on Monday, charged with six offences.

He was charged under section 7 (1) of the Sexual Offences (Scotland) Act 2009 Section 7(1) which relates to sexual verbal communication with someone who has not given consent.

    Personally I would counsel against attributing various perversions and criminality as being the realm of any one particular political party. None of them are clean in that respect.

      Oh, I agree. UKIP is particularly prone to having representatives who make fools of themselves and their party, though.
