WATCH: UK Man Filmed, Arrested For Homophobic Rant On Train

A middle-aged man has been warned by British Transit Police after delivering an expletive-ridden homophobic tirade at two gay men.

According to Pink News, the rant began shortly before midnight on Sunday at the Blackpool North station and continued on board the train, which was heading to Manchester Airport.

“I was kind of cuddled up to my friend Alex because it was cold and I was a little emotional,” said one of the victims, who captured the incident on his phone. “This man then started hurling abuse at us, that we’re not right, that our parents should be ashamed of us and that god made Adam and Eve not gays.”

, who uploaded the clip to YouTube, says the man also barked at them, “If my son was gay I would burn him, you two should be burnt.”

According to authorities, the unnamed man, 56, was arrested on suspicion of a public-order offense. “He received an official police caution for a public order offence and was released from police custody the following afternoon,” said a spokesman for the British Transit Police.

    In UK new, the right wing rags have hit a new low in regards to the Jimmy Saville inquiry.

    1.) They denied it completely

    2.) A chance to kick the BBC so the Daily Mail and Telegraph run it front page

    3.) Senior politicians with connections to both papers are mentioned, stop running stories

    4.) Now they have casually switched it to associate paedophiles with gay politicians and gay care workers. Like they always do.

    The right have no values, no matter the nation. I’ll give credit to David Cameron for refusing to give in to these nutcases forcing names into the public domain for the sole purpose of discrediting the inquiry and forcing a witch hunt.

    Typical work for the right in fairness.
