Julia Gasper, who called for Grindr to be banned to stop the “hundreds” of gay MPs, won less than 1% of the vote in European elections.

The former UKIP chair and failed Oxford city council candidate was standing for the English Democrats in the South East region.

The party managed to scrape just 0.76% of the vote in the region, winning just 17,771 votes, compared to UKIP’s 751,439 across the South East.

Gasper had previously called for Grindr to be banned, and claimed Daniel Radcliffe and a “queer mafia” were responsible for “victimising” former Mozilla CEO Brendan Eich into stepping down.

She also claimed that World AIDS Day “congratulates” people for “spreading this disease”, and said she hoped “guilt” killed “queer gangsters” over same-sex marriage.

She has also claimed that Pink News readers should be sectioned under the Mental Health Act, and described Pink News as a “vile rabid dog” of “homosexual bullies”.

She wrote earlier this month: “The vile Pink News is at his throat like a rabid dog. This is disgusting anti-social behaviour. If you believe in democratic rights, tolerance, respect and true diversity you can go to his page and offer him a supportive message.”

She has also written: “There are far too many homosexuals in Parliament.

“There seem to be hundreds of [gay MPs], all in important positions and giving each other favours. That is a violation of democracy.”
