By | Published on Tuesday 27 April 2010

KT Tunstall has said she’s broken all ties with her stepfather, David Orr, who is standing as the BNP’s candidate in Livingston, West Lothian.

In a statement, a spokesperson for the singer said: “She abhors the BNP and all they stand for.She now has no contact with David Orr”.

Orr confirmed this, telling The Daily Record: “This has caused huge problems in my family. It’s really put the cat among the pigeons.I’ve had KT’s people on the phone basically saying that she won’t have anything further to do with me and doesn’t want to see me ever again. KT is a bit of a yoghurt-knitter and takes a dim view of the BNP”.

Who knew yoghurt knitting and racism were mutually exclusive hobbies?
