Pink jackboots, Churchill, and same-sex marriage - Plague of Mice

You may not have heard of Alan Craig. I certainly hadn’t, but he’s a bit more than just a lone fruitcake who lacks the wit and charm of an Eugene Delgaudio. He actively campaigns against LGBT rights on a religious fanaticism ticket. Here’s his career to date, according to Wikipedia:

Political career
  • Craig first stood for Newham Council in 1998 as a Christian Democrat candidate in Ordnance ward and in 2001 he stood in a by-election for Beckton ward.
  • He was elected to Newham Council for Canning Town South in the 2002 local elections becoming the only opposition councillor.
