GUILLOTINES, castration, and flogging these are just some of the policies put forward by the latest controversial Scottish Ukip candidate to come to the fore.
Gisela Allen also has some strange views on people being vocal members of the LGBT community. She says she finds gorillas attractive they make her “hormones go crazy”, she claims but she doesn’t talk about it so why should gay, lesbian or bisexual people talk about their sex life.
Allen, who is standing in Glasgow for the anti-EU party, also insisted mothers with young children should not work.
An aide to Ukip MEP David Coburn said last night that Allen’s views “do not reflect official party policy”. However, in an apparent endorsement of her views, he said the candidate’s “personal manifesto” should be put to the electorate
Allen, 84, who is a Glasgow Ukip candidate, spoke exclusively to the Sunday Herald yesterday, setting out her views on crime, health, childcare and relationships.
She said: “The main purpose of the law is to protect the public. If I could get the guillotine, lethal injection or firing squad I would gladly have it. I would also castrate violent criminals. You castrate bulls, horses, dogs it takes the aggression away. Moreover, these violent criminals can’t have any more children themselves. And I am all for the cat o’ nine tails. You like violence? Well let’s see how you like to be on the receiving end.”
Allen came to Scotland from Switzerland in 1961 as an exchange student where she met her Jamaican husband, who was in the RAF. They had four children and ran a bed and breakfast. Despite her age she is in favour of euthanising the elderly and the sick.
She said: “The NHS spends a fortune on prolonging the lives of, for instance, cancer sufferers. Settle the whole nonsense. Kidney transplants, heart transplants come off it.”
When her husband died Allen began volunteering at Glasgow Zoo and uses an animal analogy when speaking about the LGBT (lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender) community.
She said: “I am not anti-gay but how can you call that a community? Sex life is everybody’s private affair. You do not come out and declare openly. Do you think I am going all over the city and saying my idea of a sexually-attractive creature is a gorilla? When I go to a zoo and I see a gorilla my hormones go absolutely crazy. I find a gorilla very attractive.”
The mother-of-four was also adamant that mothers should stay at home and look after their young children, adding that councils should withdraw nursery funding.
She said: “When you have very small children it is advisable that you look after them yourself. If a woman is a dentist or a doctor, or in any career important to the community, we should do our best to get her back to work as soon as possible, because such careers shouldn’t really be interrupted. But if somebody sits in an office at a computer, I think her place is at home until the children are bigger.”
