UKIP's first openly gay London mayoral candidate selected

Peter Whittle has been selected as UKIP's candidate for London Mayor.

Whittle is the founder of the centre-right think tank, New Culture Forum and UKIP's first openly gay London mayoral candidate. Nigel Farage said he was "delighted to learn that the party has elected him as our candidate in the battle to become London Mayor".

Pink News, the Guardian and Huffington Post have yet to mention Whittle's selection, presumably trying to work out a way of making it prove that UKIP is homophobic.
