Harry Perry posted comments describing Prime Minister David Cameron as a "gay-loving nutcase", calling Muslims "devil's kids" and homosexuality "an abomination before God".

Nigel Farage, speaking in Dover, Kent, at the launch of Ukip's new billboard campaign, said that there were "some idiots" in the party as he condemned Mr Perry's comments as "entirely inconsistent" with remaining in Ukip.
