Tory Candidate In Gay Demon Claims

bigben_020510.jpg The Tories really are shooting themselves in the foot when it comes to appealing to the non-homophobic vote. After Chris Grayling's B&B comments comes an Observer report that Phillippa Stroud, Conservative candidate for Sutton and Cheam and head of thinktank Centre for Social Justice, founded a church that thinks it can 'cure' gay people by driving the demons out of them. No, really. According to a former employee, the church seems to think demons cause homosexuality, alcoholism and drug addiction, which shows a heartening regard for the kind of reason and fact-based decision-making we need more of when it comes to the economy, education, health etc. For a list of the many available candidates in Sutton and Cheam, have a look at ukpollingreport.
