  1. They are Tories, so what else did you expect?

    The gay rights march in question was banned by the Mayor of Cracow – who was a member, not of Law and Justice, but of the EPP Party in Poland, Civic Platform. Its organisers then asked to move it to Warsaw on the same day as a scheduled parade by a Catholic group. Kaczynski, who had allowed two previous gay pride marches as mayor, told them that they had to choose a different date. They refused, and the march did not go ahead.What is really significant here, though, is the extraordinary double standard being applied by pro-EPP MEPs, as well as by the Guardian and Independent. Look at the parties currently in the EPP, for Heaven’s sake: the German CDU, which ran a blatantly racist campaign against the immigration of some Indian computer programmers with the slogan “Children, Not Indians”; the coalition partners of the Austrian Freedom Party; the parties of those paragons of uprightness, Jacques Chirac and Silvio Berlusconi. And look at the persistent anti-gay voting record of the EPP, both in Brussels and in their home countries. It is outrageous that all this should be considered acceptable simply because they are pro-euro and in favour of the EU constitution; and that opposing the constitution should be taken as ipso facto proof of extremism.
