A UKIP parliamentary candidate has complained that a gay donkey once tried to rape his horse.

John Rees-Evans, who is the party’s PPC in Cardiff South and Penarth, made the bizarre comments outside the opening of a new UKIP shop in Merthyr.

Protesters read him a quotation from the party’s former Oxford chair Dr Julia Gasper, who claimed some homosexuals prefer sex with animals.

Mr Rees-Evans replied: “Actually I’ve witnessed that.

“I was personally quite amazed. I’ve got a horse, it was in the fields, and a donkey came up – my horse is a stallion.

“A donkey came up which is male, and I’m afraid tried to rape my horse.

“My horse bit the side of the donkey, and I had to give my horse a slap to protect the donkey.”

He added: “In this case [she’s] obviously correct… but I don’t think that’s what it meant, it’s just a bizarre coincidence.”

A protester assured him footage of the rant was “all going up on YouTube tomorrow”.

The candidate told the Independent that as a libertarian, he has “no position to declare that one particular form of sexual appetite is any more legitimate than any other.”

He added: “My own background is quite traditional. For me, any kind of non-conventional relationship that people have, I would say I don’t really understand the attraction, but we are a libertarian party.

“People can do pretty much anything they like in the privacy of their own homes as long as it doesn’t affect other people.”
