UKIP council candidate unmasked as adult movie star

A UKIP candidate for Bristol City Council has been revealed to be an x-rated movie performer and producer.

John Langley, who performs under the name Johnny Rockard, is standing for the town hall alongside working as vice-chair of the party’s Bristol branch.

UKIP has stood by Langley despite admitting his line of work is ‘a little bit unusual’.

It is thought the veteran film-maker could have been in the industry for over 30 years.

Langley told the Bristol Post: ‘I have never made a big deal out of what I do and I am not breaking any laws.

‘UKIP is a working class party which appeals to working class people. Normal people go to the pub and enjoy a pint and then probably go home and enjoy adult entertainment. What people do in their private lives is really up to them,’ he added.

A party spokesperson said: ‘Mr Langley is not doing anything illegal and it is a little bit unusual but at the end of the day he is a businessman.

‘Nothing is being hidden and there is no issue as far as we are concerned with him standing for Ukip in the election.’
