Southport UKIP have chosen Gordon Fergusson (above) to replace Terry Durrance as their local Chairman. Fergusson is the UKIP candidate from Southport’s Cambridge Ward who called in May for the execution of Labour, Lib Dem and Conservative voters, for treason against the state.
In a letter distributed to Southport voters, Fergusson said: “Those responsible should be brought to trial and those found guilty of treason should be hung by the neck until dead.”
He warned that those who voted for the three parties were “guilty by association of treason” and told the Daily Telegraph that he stood by his call for the execution of his rivals for treason, saying: “that is the old English law is it not?”
Asked if this meant that voters for the other parties should also be executed, he replied “If that is the law of the land, that should apply.”
Mr Ferguson, who owns Cherry Tree Lodge residential care home on Knowsley Road, experienced a national backlash to his letter and eventually issued an apology of sorts.
“In retrospect I can see that the language I used and the ideas I alluded to may be perceived as rather strong. “However, it is a reflection of how strongly I feel about the growing undemocratic power and influence of the EU over UK affairs.
“I am by no means media trained, but an ordinary chap who wants the best for Britain. I deeply regret causing any embarrassment for UKIP at such a crucial time.”
The UKIP candidate also said that the ‘evil trio,’ the three leading political parties, will never be brought to account because the senior police, Crown Prosecution Service and judges are ‘all exclusively freemasons.’
