Reinstate Rob Ager

The Torygraph is reporting that a "UKIP politician" has been sacked for writing scripts for porn movies.

As far as I can tell, Rob Ager isn't a councillor and he's not an MEP so he's not a politician.  Being a branch chairman doesn't make you a politician - I was once a branch chairman and I'm certainly not a politician!

But that's by the by.  I really don't understand why the party feels it necessary to suspend Ager because he makes mucky films.  We're supposed to be a party built on libertarian ideals, defending personal rights and responsibilities from an overbearing state.

Unless there is more to this story that the Torygraph are reporting, there is no reason for Ager to be suspended and he should be reinstated as soon as possible.
