Conservative Cameron is sorry about that Section 28 nonsense. Won’t happen again. Sorry ’bout that. Whoops etc.

Trust me, I'm a Tory

Top Tory filth, David Cameron is after your vote, gays. And he’s prepared to go so far as to say that Section 28 was a mistake.

Just to recap, what Section 28 did was ban councils from buying books or backing plays – or anything for that matter: embroidery even – that might show gay relationships as ‘normal’ or promote ‘the teaching of the acceptability of homosexuality as a pretended family relationship’. Nice stuff, though, isn’t it? Especially when it meant that teachers couldn’t even help gay kids at school who were having a hard time.

And now they’re really sorry, have been on some diversity courses, got Brokeback Mountain out on video, met a gay person and have decided that it was all a terrible mistake and they can’t imagine how it happened…

Oh. Really? Funny that when the question of abolishing Section 28 came up in Parliament in 2003 (and you may hate Blair, but he pushed it all through) they… voted against getting rid of it. ‘Ay! Was that us? Butterfingers etc.’

‘I’m sorry for Section 28,’ quoth David Cameron (though his voice was so posh, no one could really understand him), much to the Daily Mail’s frothing. ‘We got it wrong. It was an emotional issue. We have got to move on and we have moved on.’

Well, honey, maybe we haven’t.

  1. Don’t believe him for a second. Lip service merely to get the ‘mo vote. Any ‘mo who votes for this man ought to be shot at dawn. Even dusk with do. Not lunch, though, I’m busy.

  3. Trust almost no one in regards to this — even the more liberal parties. So many MPs have dirty little homophobic secrets if one investigates enough. Research each of them individually.

  4. So, me-me-me who are you going to waste your vote on (coz you’ve admitted your old enough to vote) the Greens? There’s no gay party and they ALL want your vote ….move on

  5. What on earth are you on about, Lois? Firstly, I’m not big on your apathy with the voting thing… no vote is a ‘wasted’ vote. And yes, of course they’re all after eveyone’s vote. It’s called an election. Thirdly, would a black person vote for a party with a history of racist policies? Therefore why on earth should gays not have a problem with the historically homophobic Tories? And lets face it, they’re is little/no evidence that their stance has changed, merely lip-service. I, for one, will not ‘move on’. I will give my vote to the people I believe most deserve it (based on a mixture of things, one of them being whether the party believes I, as a gay man, deserve the same rights and respect as every other person in this country).
    Ithankyou.

  6. I’m not sure it’s right to say the Tories have the monopoly on homophobia and that they haven’t changed. If it was Thatcher’s party of the 80’s, I could understand the paranoia, but it isn’t and so I can’t.
    Tory MPs, as a body of representatives, have changed considerably in the twenty plus years since Section 28. And in the next election there will be an influx of MPs of the current generation who are even more in tune with modern Britain.
    Section 28 was terrible and wrong, we all know that and it has been acknowledged to have been wrong by Cameron. What has been said by Cameron that should make any of us believe that we would be any worse off under a Conservative government, let alone in danger like some posters here and elsewhere suggest?

  7. I just feel we’re shooting in the dark with the Tories, as there is little palpable proof of their pro-gay stance. I don’t know if it’s worth the risk… At least Labour actually gave us equality…
