Being gay is a ‘fashion choice’ says deeply religious UKIP candidate

WINSTON McKenzie is a bit of a dandy. Now it seems the United Kingdom Independence Party’s candidate in the Croydon North by-election is a bit of idiot as well.

In an interview with the Croydon Advertiser, according to this report, McKenzie said that some people “pretend” to be gay but that he would “sympathise” with people who really are.

He argued that it was not "normal" for two men to kiss each other and “unhealthy” for children to be adopted by same-sex couples.
