Labour MP’s Shameless LGBT Hypocrisy Over Andrea Leadsom

At PMQs this afternoon, mace-wielding prat Lloyd Russell-Moyle accused Andrea Leadsom of having said that “parents should decide when they are exposed to LGBT education,” whipping out the accusation that this was “Conservative Party dog-whistle politics.” The only problem is that Andrea Leadsom didn’t say that at all…

What Leadsom actually said was that she supports LGBT relationship education:

“It’s absolutely vital that children do grow up understanding the society they live in and they grow up tolerant, seeking equality and respecting differences… I think it is the case that you have to allow parents to choose to withdraw their children up to a certain age, but at the same time in order to have an equal society there comes a point where children do need to understand the social norms around them.”

Curiously, Russell-Moyle hasn’t said anything about the Labour MP Shabana Mahmood who has been directly supporting the parents in Birmingham who are campaigning against LGBT-inclusive education, in effect supporting a new Section 28. Even Owen Jones condemned her, but somehow Russell-Moyle hasn’t said a word on it. Somehow Russell-Moyle forgot to jump on board the outrage bus when its destination wasn’t a partisan attack on a Tory…

Quote of the Day

Lucy Allan explains her positive comments about the Brexit Party…

“If EU elections are held, Leave supporting voters will want to vote for Leave supporting candidates… Usual party loyalties will be eclipsed by the Leave v Remain divide. It’s good to see strong candidates in the Leave camp. However, I sincerely hope we leave the EU before these elections are held so that we can move on and not waste time and money on unnecessary EU elections.”
