An immigrant UKIP candidate, (sounds like an oxymoron, but now it’s not) came out with some pretty interesting policies in the run up to the local elections this year.
Unfortunately Gisela Allen did not win a seat in the area of Garscadden/Scotstounhill which is a big shame for ageists everywhere as she demanded the working age be raised to 70 and free bus passes were abolished. Is your sick grandma too sick to walk from all that hard work? In Gisela Allen style, TOO BAD.
She went after women too since obviously their rightful place is at home looking after the children… Wait, are you not trying to get a job Gisela?? She also wanted to decrease child care and stop sex education at the same time. You can see how that might work out.
When defending her position on the LGBT+ community, (she wants them to mind their own business funnily enough) she said: “You do not come out and declare openly. Do you think I am going all over the city and saying my idea of a sexually-attractive creature is a gorilla?
“When I go to a zoo and I see a gorilla my hormones go absolutely crazy. I find a gorilla very attractive.” Remind us never to go to a wildlife park with her.
Over 100 people felt the same way and decided they’d like this monkey loving individual to represent them….. oh dear.
