Jonathan Fryer, London Liberal Democrats' Number 2 candidate in the European elections, has condemned the Conservatives for considering going into an alliance with homophobic parties in the European Parliament.
The Tories are planning to break away from the large centre-right EPP (Christian Democrat-Conservative) party in the European Parliament, to form a new right-wing grouping with parties such as the Polish Law and Justice Party and the Latvian For Fatherland and Freedom Party, both of which are blatantly anti-gay.
"The Tories tell us that they have changed their spots on anti-gay prejudice", says Jonathan. "So how do they justify getting into bed in Europe with political allies who have said that homosexuality will cause the "downfall of civilization?"
He adds: "Cameron and the Tories should have no truck with homophobes."
