  1. Ite Incendite 5 Jul 2008, 6:43pm

    Cameron has taken a stand against the imposition of Sharia law in the UK, which, if enacted, would impose far-right fundamentalist Islamic “values” upon British society as a whole. Brown and Labour has done nothing about Sharia, Cameron and the Torries will. Attention Gay and Lesbian British voters: Cameron not only supports you, but he wants to fight and protect you from those who wish to destroy your lives and freedom to live openly.

  2. I believe all of us LGBT members of society should take a good look at the record of the labour government and of Ken Livingstone. They are allowing Islamic clerics have a platform in this country which they insult us and wish for us to be destroyed. Only the Conservative party will stop these from being given a platform in this once proud country. Boris Johnson will give no honourable welcome to any homophobic Muslim cleric that is for sure!
    I shall always vote Conservative and never will allow labour into fooling that they are on our side.

  3. I agree with Ite – although we should all recognise the achievements of Blair’s governments in pushing forward a commendable programme of gay equality legislation, Labour are so beholden to the PC dogma of the race and faith fanatics, they are too weak to stand up to the bullying tactics of the relentless forces of Islam who wish to force the UK back into the dark ages of subjugating women, oppressing gay and lesbian Britons and attacking decent liberal values wherever they can.

  4. Personally, I think the Tories have got a lot of bridge building to do. I do not trust them. Too many MPs in their party have voted consistently against any equality legislation over the last 10 years.

    But I agree also with the comments above – Tony Blair’s government has led to faith schools opening all over the place, where it’s OK for teachers to bully gay kids into a life of chastity under the threat of eternal damnation. It is in faith schools where gay pupils are more likely to be bullied, and where they are less likely to ask help. Religious institutions now have a stakeholding in a huge proportion of schools across the country.

    I will vote for the party that is most likely to stop the godly from taking over. The Tories really concern me because of the influence on policy, wielded by fanatics like the Cornerstone Group, the Conservatice Christian fellowship, the liaisons they have with fanatics like the Christian Institute (all that nonsense about the ‘need for a father’, reducing abortion to 12 weeks – their response to their defeat: “we’ll change the law, whatever the scientific evidence says” – that was all driven by the Christian Right).

    What annoys me most with the Tories is that they have a number of moderates, and gay members (e.g. alan duncan), who will not openly condemn their fellow party members when they come out with bigoted views (religious nutcases like edward leigh etc).
