Tories must make clear if they are joining homophobes in Europe

March 17, 2009 2:41 PM

Liberal Democrat Spokesperson for Youth and Equality, Lynne Featherstone has written to William Hague to ask him to clarify if the Conservative Party intends to form an alliance with the Polish Law and Justice party in the European Parliament. Senior politicians from the Law and Justice party have made homophobic statements, as well as describing Barack Obama's election as marking 'the end of white man's civilisation'.

Lynne Featherstone said: "By joining with these people the Tories would be to lending credence to their abhorrent views.

"Homophobia and racism have no place in mainstream politics.

"The Conservatives must make clear whether they intend to join forces with the Law and Justice Party."
