    A UKIP Councillor Blamed The Weather On Gay Marriage - And The Internet Reacted Beautifully

    "There are warning of gays in Viking, Forties, Cromertie, South East Iceland and Bongo Bongo Land."

    So a UKIP councillor, David Silvester, wrote to the Henley Standard blaming gay marriage for Britain's recent stormy weather.

    So, predictibly @UKIPWeather was invented.

    EXTREME WEATHER WARNING! Tonight for the first time, just about half past ten. For the first time in history it's gonna start rainin' men

    There's even a UKIP Shipping Forecast.

    This has been done by the excellent Nicholas Pegg.

    But guys, homosexuals ARE controlling the weather.

    I've been informed that sunshower days are the product of bisexual weather control. Because we just don't know what we want. #ukipweather
