The Salford Star doesn't usually give much credence to the Mail, or the 'Daily Malice' as we like to call it – but it does seem to have come up with a proper scoop, outing the Salford based UKIP Greater Manchester Mayor candidate, Shneur Odze, for indulging in a 'sex role-play scandal with woman he met on bondage site'.
Odze is a married, ultra-orthodox Jewish politician, who 'won't even shake female rivals' hands on religious grounds' states the Mail - which refers to him as a 'rampant rabbi', allegedly "playing out a disturbing 'sexual fantasy'" with a woman he met on a sadomasochism site called Fetlife.com, run by the 'kinky community'.
The paper interviews a woman it calls Cassie, who says Odze titled himself 'His Worshipful' on the site, complete with an image of a young priest reading a prayer book. She met him four times, the first time at her flat in York, where "he put my wrists and ankles in plastic handcuffs and blindfolded me...He also hit me across the buttocks for all the times I'd forgotten to call him Sir...
"I had to call him Sir every time I spoke to him, which was fine, although it got ridiculous after a while" she added "If I was being good he would address me as angel, but if I questioned him or answered back, he would call me a "whore, b**** or c***'...he kept pestering me to have a threesome..."
Cassie says that she went to the papers after googling his mobile phone number and discovering that 'Odze was presenting an image of himself as a happily married pillar of the community'.
"He had lied to me, by telling me he wasn't married and he's lying to the people he wants to represent by pretending to be something he's not" she explained "It is hypocritical..."
When the Mail confronted him, Odze responded "I've no idea what you're talking about", while a UKIP spokesman added "This is a personal matter for Mr Odze. He has broken no law, and therefore we have no comment to make."
Shneur Odze and his agent have still not responded to the last request for a comment from the Salford Star about who is bankrolling his Greater Manchester Mayor bid (see previous Salford Star article – click here).
This is just the latest shock to hit Salford UKIP. The Salford Star exclusively revealed this week that Seamus Martin, the candidate expected to stand for the party for the Salford and Eccles seat in the forthcoming General Election withdrew, after being "appalled" at its "so-called Integration Agenda", which he described as "Muslim-bashing"...
Martin called it an "odious agenda"...an "alienation agenda aimed at deliberately demonising one specific community...", a "vile agenda sneaked through without the knowledge or consent of UKIP party members..." He added that UKIP's call for a moratorium on Muslim state schools was "ignorant and unacceptable"...
