UKIP have made a big thing recently of campaigning against all the other parties for being involved in child abuse. Kippers are preaching that Tories/Labour/LibDems are all disgusting, and UKIP is untainted by such appalling activities. It gives me no pleasure to report that a UKIP Chairman has been arrested and jailed for precisely that. On Monday, a report appeared in the Bury Times that Peter Entwhistle, an ex-UKIP Bury chairman, has been jailed for grooming children. Over 200,000 pictures of child porn were found in his possession.
Entwistle was sentenced to four years and eight months in prison after pleading guilty to 21 counts at an earlier hearing, including possessing and distributing indecent images of children as well as inciting and the attempted inciting of children to commit sexual acts.
He will be placed on the sexual offenders register for life, and would be subject to a sexual offences prevention order.
The court was told that Entwistle, of Broad Oak Lane, Bury, had one previous conviction of indecently exposing himself to a woman in the 1980s, but had otherwise had a clean record.
Instead of preaching, maybe it would be better if UKIP did some checking first. The behaviour of some of their local councillors too, who are dropping like flies, proves they are certainly no better than any of the other parties. In one year, there were far more reports of UKIP councillors misbehaving than of any other party.
UKIP member Winston McKenzie has insulted gay people, by saying if gay couples adopt children, it is child abuse.
Baronness Sally Brinton has excoriated UKIP’s record on child abuse in the Lords.
