Conservatives shadow defence spokesman talks (again!) about gays

Do these people seriously wish, ever again, to govern this country? It seems to me to be a pertinent question. Gerald Howarth seems single-minded in his determination to keep Conservatives out of government for a very long time ...

... not of course that I believe most people in Britain care very much, either way, about 'gay rights'. Probably most people are either indifferent or mildly antagonistic. But what most British people are not is 'extremist' in their views. People like Gerald Howarth undoubtedly have some following and this is fair enough, but holding the views he does seems a long way from seeking to entice all but a freakish minority to vote for you.
