The Conservatives are poised to suspend a councillor for making the following remark about gay marriage:
“There is no doubt the PM is wrong on this issue. We may as well legalise marriage with animals, crude I concede but no apology.”
So why wasn’t Boris Johnson disciplined by CCHQ for the same jibe?
“If gay marriage was OK – and I was uncertain on the issue – then I saw no reason in principle why a union should not be consecrated between three men, as well as two men; or indeed three men and a dog.”
Clearly, it’s okay to be homophobic if you have fluffy blond hair.
