    Good for you Mr Freer. Great to see talent recognised and all the better you are an out gay man. I wish you every success and hope to see you as a minister asap

    Great news for you, the youth of this country and on a world stage.

  2. Congrats Mike, I loved your speech in the SSM debate :)

  3. You forgot to mention Iain Stewart, Milton Keynes South, who also became a PPS too.

    Well done, Mike Freer.

    What I find interesting is Daniel Kawczynski became PPS to homophobe David Davies of Wales who said some of the most vile things about equal marriage.

  5. Never voted tory and can’t imagine I ever will. However, Mike freer came and spoke at my employers LGBT staff forum and gave a great account of himself. I was impressed and found his personal ethics to be of the highest calibre. . Despite some hostile, but polite questions he showed himself in a very positive light and clearly was an out gay man who was never going to accept second best on any LGBT issues. I welcome his promotion, despite wanting a change of government at the earliest possible opportunity!
