  2. Unprecendented – Unprecendented – Unprecendented

    Cameron pleads to the Libdems on national Television

    Desperation is painful to watch

  3. Yes,but lab pleaded first…. Good to see so many gay people entering parliament from both sides, are things changing?

  4. Dreadful news that Nick Herbert won his seat.

    He is a dangerous person. One of his purposees is to pretend the Tories are no longer entirely homophobic scum.

    Nick Herbert is a man without morals.

    He has no qualms about appearing with the disgusting homophobic bigot Philippa Stroud.

    Nor does he have any qualms about telling barefaced lies about how the Tories allies in Europe – the neo-fascist Law and Justice Party – are not homophobic (before being sent that that posh desperado Callmedave to Poland to have a ‘word’ with the Polish neo-fascists about their homophobic bigotry.

    Herbert needs to be watched. His is a patsy who the Tories will wheel out again to pretend they are not bigotted scum.

    Kelly, re your comment; “Good to see so many gay people entering parliament from both sides”…. I hope you’re talking spit-roasting? And who is this lucky “parliament” character?!

  6. Would PR have given the BNP 12 seats? (if they got 2% of the vote)

  7. A memo written by William Hague has been leaked. It reveals the Tory’s true colours and shows us all now, once and for all, that Call-Me-Dave has been nothing but window-dressing, a detestable lie. The Tories have an agenda which is in line with Philippa Stroud being Head of their Centre for Social Justice.

    Read:

    “we are committed to returning powers from the European level to the UK in three key areas – the Charter of Fundamental Rights, criminal justice, and social and employment legislation.”

    See the whole article at the link below and notice how the arrogant Hague fully expects to be the new Foreign Minister on Monday and has taken it for granted that Call-Me-Dave will be Prime Minister.

    Here is the proof then. Hague has spelt it out. The Tories intend in the coming weeks to withdraw the UK from all EU regulation regarding the Charter of Fundamental Rights, criminal justice, and social and employment legislation.

    That’s the rights of all we non-religionists and LGBTs down the drain.

    That’s back to church on Sunday for Britain.

    That’s all sorts of businesses granted the right to slam the door in the faces of LGBTs.

    PLEASE COPY OF THE ABOVE AND EMAIL IT TO EVERYONE YOU KNOW.

    WE MUST MAKE SUCH A CLAMOUR ABOUT THIS THAT THE LIB-DEMS IMMEDIATELY DITCH ANY NOTIONS OF FORMING A COALITION WITH THE NASTY PARTY.

  8. Sorry, but I just don’t get it. “Gay Tory”? How can they? The party with the worst ever record on LGBT rights, the party that brought us Clause 28… OK so I know there are other issues, but I just don’t get how one can be LGBT and a Tory.

  9. Bit of a turn up for the books – looking at the papers today it seems the Tories now have more out gay MPs that Labour and Lib Dems combined
