Tory MEP repeats attack on party leader and PM over his stance on gay marriage

Sunday, 20 January 2013
Conservative MEP Giles Chichester made an appearance in today’s BBC Politics Show SW in which he repeated his attack on his party leader and current Prime Minister David Cameron for his stance on gay marriage which he believes is alienating the party’s grassroots.

"I am very disappointed that David Cameron, and I think it is personal, has chosen to take this initiative. It was not in the manifesto and there is no great call for it," he said. "I support equal rights for gay couples and that has been legislated for already, but if it ain’t broke why fix it?"

This echoes the message he delivered in an open letter earlier this month in which he said the party’s grassroot members will ignore his call to “stop complaining” so long as Government policies depart from promises made in the Conservative manifesto to support families and marriage.

An audio recording of the package can be listened to below:
