Andrew Turner, Conservative MP for the Isle of Wight since 2001, has decided not to stand for re-election before he was forced to stand down. This is because of an answer he gave during a question and answer session at Christ the King College (sic) in Newport, a joint Church of England and Catholic secondary school and sixth form college. One student, who describing herself as a “passionate campaigner for LGBT rights”, asked him if he was involved in the Isle of Wight’s first ever Pride event.
In a post on Facebook, the student said. “He told us that he’d been invited, but wasn’t intending to go. This is because (and this is a direct quote) he thinks that homosexuality is ‘wrong’ and “dangerous to society’.”
It does slightly remind me of children reporting adults for politically incorrect remarks in Stalin's Russia, but Stalin analogies are as objectionable as Hitler ones.
