UKIP expels new councillor over racist and homophobic remarks

UKIP has expelled a newly elected councillor who allegedly posted racist and homophobic comments on Facebook.

BBC reported that Dave Small was suspended after allegedly calling African migrants "scroungers" and Clare Balding and Sir Elton John "perverts".

A UKIP spokesman said: ''He has now been expelled for clearly bringing the party into disrepute.''

Mr Small told the BBC that he made the remarks a few years ago but stressed his views remained the same and he had no regrets.

UKIP MEP James Carver said Mr Small’s opinions did not reflect those of the party.

While admitting being homophobic, Mr Small claims he is not racist as he has "a lot of black friends".

Mr Small seems to have a problem with the number of immigrants, especially Eastern Europeans in the UK. "Eastern Europeans are everywhere – you can't move for them," he said.

"It's the same as in Redditch now, most of the bus drivers are from Poland and nearly all the taxi drivers are Pakistanis."
