Tories are gay haters

Issue No. 2196

Whether you’re “young, old, rich, poor, black, white, gay, straight,” David Cameron wants your support. You are the “great ignored”, he says.

But shadow home secretary Chris Grayling didn’t get the memo. He said that “somebody who’s doing a B&B in their own home” should “have the right to exclude a gay couple”.

Tory shadow defence minister Gerald Howarth has a nice sideline—advising loan sharks. He earns £10,000 a year from the Consumer Credit Association UK. Members include Provident, which charges 272 percent interest.
