Conservatives, the Waffen SS and homophobia - Will Andrew Marr quiz David Cameron?

I have done a lot of gay related Tory bashing this week - rightly bloody so though.

David Cameron stands there on TV and talks about change and how his Party has changed, absolute crap (sorry, I meant to say bol**cks), his Party has not changed one tiny bit.

His MEPs abstained when the vote took place on the Lithuanians bringing in their own version of Section 28 (although in reality much worse than the Tory version) but this is his group of MPs who sit in a new group in Brussels which contains homophobic right wing fascists and yet David Cameron is happy with that!

The group the Conservatives sit in Brussels with are aligned with the Latvian For Fatherland and freedom party that participates in an event commemorating the Latvian Waffen SS, and the Brussels group is led by Poland's Michal Kaminski a man who has his own chequered past on racism and homophobia.

You can also read over at Liberal Conspiracy about how "David Cameron’s Conservative Party now sits in the European Parliament with the European Reformists and Conservatives group (ECR), led by Poland’s Michal Kaminski – a man allegedly with a racist and homophobic past.

"But so far it has gone unreported that another ally of the Conservatives in Europe has a much more serious and recent record of homophobia. Valdemar Tomasevski, MEP from Lithuania, and member of the Tories’ Euro coalition, is on record as having branded homosexuality a "perversion". Not only that, I can now reveal for the first time that he also personally voted for a Lithuanian law that has been described as a harsher, more wide-reaching version of Britain’s Section 28."

Then there was Roger Helmer, Conservative MEP for the East Midlands who claimed homophobia doesn't exist. Read the blog post.

Then there was the vote about the above mentioned Lithuanian Section 28 where the Conservative hypocritical British MEPs abstained. Read the blog post.

Then there was the time when the Leader of the Conservative group on Bristol City Council, Councillor Richard Eddy criticised a local LGBT group for receiving a Big Lottery Fund grant saying it was misguided. Read the blog post.

As you can see there is a recurring theme, the Tories have NOT changed, they are as deeply homophobic as they always have been, they just hid it for a while.

So will Andrew Marr have the balls to question David Cameron on the Waffen SS links and the homophobes in his party? Only time will tell.

Don't you get it? No one cares what holes you want to stick your bits into.

Or which of your holes you want others to stick their bits in.

We just don't care. And don't want to hear about it.

You've whipped up a self-perpetuating victim club for a problem that practically doesn't exist in 2009.
