Cameron entered into an alliance knowing his Polish allies were homophobes

A report in The Observer has suggested that Conservative leader, David Cameron, who yesterday wrote a comment article for PinkNews, entered into an alliance with the homophobic Polish Law and Justice party despite their views, senior figures told the newspaper.

The Observer claims that a report by the Conservative party in 2007 warned Mr Cameron to be wary of the Polish political party because its members where on the far right of politics, veering towards homophobia and anti-Semitism.

A former Polish MEP, Jozef Pinior told the newspaper that he had read a summary of the Conservatives report that found that the party was “too politically dangerous” to engage with.

Edward McMillan-Scott, the Vice-President of the European Parliament who recently left the Conservative Party told the paper:”I knew the report existed but I never saw it. I took my party at its word at the time when it said that it would not sign up with those from the wild fringes of European politics. But I was wrong.”

On Saturday, Mr Cameron declared in an article for that he would clear the criminal records of all that have been in the past convicted of a consensual, now legal sexual offence.
