That bundle of right wing prejudices Ann Widdicome has resurfaced with another example of why Christians get a bad name.
This time she has put down an amendment which states that expressing criticism of homosexual conduct should not be classified as stirring up homosexual hatred.
Ms. Widdicome is a right wing Tory and a devout Christian, so devout in fact that she swapped from C.of E. to R.C. over the issue of women priests, surely the longest running case of sexual discrimination ever.
She want's to give bigotry am exemption when it involves gays, when it's them you can say what you want, a lovely woman.
This is the same woman who, when in the Home Office under that other caring chap Michael Howard thought it proper to have young women prisoners who were pregnant chained to the bed while in Labour, it's difficult to write that, stand back and consider what was going on, and further consider that she thought it OK.
You have to consider just what kind of a person this is, sometimes words are not enough to describe people who are capable of such actions. She complains that the Govt. did not provide enough time to debate this and advises people to remember at the next election that the Govt, was denying free speech.
I hope that at the next election that people will remember that people like Ann Widdicome are still in the Tory Party and vote accordingly.
Unfortunately and embarrassingly the amendment was seconded by Jim Dobbin Labour and a handfull of Labour MP's supported it, if this was my MP I would work to have him/her deselected. We in the Labour Party are opposed to bigotry and prejudice it is not our job to promote it, these Labour MP's should be ashamed, I hope their CLP's follow my advice.
