I can’t stand David Cameron or the Conservative Party. However, I don’t believe that he needs to apologise for ‘linking paedophiles with gays’. He was clearly saying that people should be careful about participating in witch-hunts because of ignorance surrounding some loons who often wrongly and maliciously label gay people as paedos purely because of their sexuality. He was not attacking gays. He has nothing to apologise for.
I’d use any opportunity to discredit the Tories but I also believe in fairness.
As for Phillip Schofield ‘ambushing’ the Prime Minister, it’s about time that television presenters asked awkward questions and don’t just comply with the unwritten agreements of avoiding certain topics or sticking to questions that have only been briefed. However, just because he found a list of names on the internet doesn’t mean that those people are any way guilty of anything.
Anyone who takes gossip as gospel when it relates to serious matters that are being distributed on the internet - and in particular Twitter which Schofield is a keen participant - should be hit in the face with a wet fish.
David Cameron has campaigned to legalise gay marriage by 2015 despite pressure from his own MPs and core Conservative supporters. It doesn’t sound to me that he has a problem with gays.
The typical British witch-hunt mentality rumbles on. There’s a thousand real issues that the PM should be taken a coshing for rather than nonsense like this.
