‘Gay donkey raped my horse’ UKIP candidate is launching a political party with a donkey logo
The UKIP leadership candidate who once claimed that a gay donkey raped his horse is launching a new political party – with a donkey as its logo.
Johnathan Rees-Evans, one of the 11 candidates who put their name forward to replace Paul Nuttall as head of the pro-Brexit UK Independence Party last year, is best known for claiming that a “homosexual donkey” tried to rape his horse.
The outspoken activist made the surreal claim in 2014, when he was challenged to condemn a UKIP candidate who claimed homosexuals engage in bestiality.
Rees-Evans insisted: “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 was not successful in his leadership bid.
Tomorrow, Rees-Evans will formally launch the Democrats and Veterans Party, with a donkey featuring prominently in the party’s logo.
The party, which champions the direct democracy which saw the British people vote to leave the European Union in 2016, intends to field candidates in May’s local elections.
“This will be our first great challenge, and one in which we do not expect to see an extraordinary result given the small amount of time we have,” the party has said in a statement.
