#ThingsElliottSays has heard from several senior UKIP sources that there is great discontent within UKIP for the stupid comments Cllr Sam Fletcher has made about adultery, women and gay people. Sources have said that as a result of this Sam Fletcher is soon to be kicked out by the Yorkshire Party.
One source said to #ThingsElliottSays that he was "not sure how serious Samuel meant for these comments to be taken seriously. However, I deplore any homophobic comments of any kind, indeed, if these comments were meant to be taken of any seriousness, he ought to keep those opinions (or irritations) to himself, especially being in an elected position as he is."

So far Rob Comley, the YI Chair, has described Sam's comments as "unsavoury" and a UKIP spokesman has said “The party is concerned by what it has seen and is currently investigating". Looks like Cllr Fletcher has made a lot of friends out of #FletcherGate.
