KT Tunstall's BNP Shame
The singer's family member joins the BNP...
Scottish singer KT Tunstallhas recently revealed that her step-father announced he was standing as a candidate for the BNP. Her mother, Carol Ann Orr had re-married, with her new husband David Orr set to campaign for the BNP in Livingston - which is somewhat of an embarrassment for KT.
Speaking to The Herald, David Orr claimed that he wanted a referendum on capital punishment and a clampdown on immigration:
"Between 2001 and 2004, the Labour Cabinet tried to flood the country with immigrants to try and change the whole of society. They (immigrants) tend to have more children than the indigenous population.”
He continued: "Katie (KT) doesn’t agree with our policies. She’s one of the greenies, the yoghurt knitters. We see Katie when she’s up on tour. When she found out that I was standing for the British National Party, it was a quick stand back.”
A spokesperson for KT Tunstall said: "Katie abhors the BNP and what it stands for. She is not in contact with David Orr.”
