    Mr Goodall makes excellent points. It’s good to have cross bench political support we now have at an unprecedented level.

  3. UKIP voters and Eurosceptics on here: please take note. We would have nowhere near as many LGBT freedoms had it not been for EU legislation.

      Absolutely spot on.

    2. Quite – are there any that we’ve won in the last decade that didn’t come from either Europe (or from the pro-European Liberals embarassing lacklustre Labour into action!)?

  4. Interesting to see the groups that have signed up to this ILGA pledge – the Lib Dems, the Social Democrats, the European People’s Party, a couple of green groupings… but not the Conservatives! (let alone UKIP, though to paraphrase Groucho Marx, would you want to sign a pledge that would have UKIP as a signatory!?).
