Tory student chief rapped over homophobic comments

The Conservative Future Chairman at the University of Central Lancashire has been thrown out of the Tory Party and been suspended by the University for being listed as an officer on a homophobic Facebook group and for making homophobic remarks to that group.

The Conservatives, to their credit, have thrown him out of the party.

It is interesting to note that the government are considering changing laws to make this sort of treatment of homosexuals equal with that of being racist or offending someone else's religion. Fergus Bowman, the Tory in question, was reading politics and religion (no surprise there), and might consider himself very lucky that these new laws are not yet in place or he could have spent some time at Her Majesty's pleasure.

There is a certain age group that seems to find appalling offensive things funny!
