  1. “Yesterday, he removed the original post, saying his remarks were not intended to be homophobic.”

    Is stupidity and a lack of self awareness now to be the mainstay of the Conservatives?

  2. all those posters on here before the election that stated that they tories had changed. Blah blah blah. See they get in to power and they all come out of the wood work. Next election when they start spouting off that they are behind the LBGT community. Remember MPs like this please and never vote Tory.

  3. Dear Mr Drax. Children are not stupid. they are capable of understanding that people are different. they are capable to understand that people love each other. And they can understand all that without the need to go into details of what those people do in bed. You and your friends,however, don’t seem capable of that or taking your mind out of the gutter.

  4. Children understand things when they are taught them.

  5. I know this isn’t quite the same thread but children of just 4 years old are too young to be taught sex of any kind. I clearly remember being 4 and learning to read, write, spell and do basic math.

  6. jim – how is saying Adam and steve went to buy 2 apples and we’re given 50p change from £1 showing anything sexual? that’s what he’s condemning, that same-sex couples get used as examples in lessons

  7. Well the multiple-married Drax is really in no position to lecture anyone about sexual standards.

    I wonder what Christian Voice has to say about his inability to hold a marriage together.

    What is the biblical punishment for adultery again?

  8. It’s good that he has withdrawn this comment. However it’s a too late, Mr Drax has made his views clear that being gay is somehow second rate.and abnormal in some way.What has been said cannot be unsaid no matter how much he tries to explain himself.

    > Remember MPs like this please and never vote Tory.

    There have been in the past twelve months sufficient stories about parliamentary candidates or counsellors from other parties making negative comments about LGB persons to know that all parties contain a number of them.

    In addition, the Conservative Party has more out gay MPs than any other party.

    This MP obviously is not supportive. It would be wrong to say that all other Conservative MPs or indeed the party policy is similarly so.

  10. A total hypocrite. Married three times? So much for sexual standards and what does that say about heterosexuals? Not much. The pot calling the kettle black if you ask me. He’s up there with Melissa Phillips et al.

  11. “There have been in the past twelve months sufficient stories about parliamentary candidates or counsellors from other parties making negative comments about LGB persons to know that all parties contain a number of them.!”

    There have been more stories in the past month about Tory MP bigots, than in the previous 12 months about all the parties combined – Raab; Drax, Theresa May (appointing a christian lunatic bigot) as a drugs advisor.

    The Tories are clearly the preferred party for vile homophobic bigots.

    “In addition, the Conservative Party has more out gay MPs than any other party.”

    And what good are they when their silence about their colleagues bigotry is so deafening.

    I am would rather be represented by a straight MP who will defend my rights than a quisling, Unlce Tom MP like Nick Herbert or Alan Duncan who refuses point blank to address the hideous bigotry within their party.

    The Tories remain the same as they have always been – homophobic scum, who cannot be trusted.

    I can see for myself, on this board, what sounds fanatical and uncompromising.

    these `real` opinions are spiking to the electoral chances of David Cameron forming a working majority, so might we have some `real` support for LGBT group action?

    Roger Helmer MEP refused to apologise on local BBC Radio for his offensive remarks last week aboiy psychotheraphy being used to turn gays straight – and saying the only person who he`d resign for was David Cameron .Support please for my approach to No.1o?

  14. What a joke 26 Jan 2011, 7:53pm

    Another stupid tory MP that doesn’t understand what the words homophobic or bigoted means.

    How embarrassing that some of you voted for the tory party.

    @ de villiers – What a joke you are.

    > @ de villiers – What a joke you are.

    à voir

  16. de villiers – until the tories actually decide to do something major n support of the LGBT community like pulling their fingers out and giving us relgious CPs (over a yr old now!!) and actually start talking in open and not behind closed doors and private discussions on things like marriage equality then I think many of us are perfectly entitiled to be slightly sceptical about the Tories “supportive” nature towards LGBT people!!!!!!!….The tories , with their previous background and slips into homophobia, should deservedly still be on probabtion,,,

    I agree entirely with you on this statement.

    In addition, I am sceptical not just of politicians on the right but all politicians.

    I am on the right but not what seems in England and America to be le capitalisme sauvage. However, even those on the left on this board appear to have the mentality of the market. I am always surprised how even those on the left behave like children of Thatcher.
