Tory party leader not questioned on her homophobia
An interview with Mrs May was broadcast on Radio Wales this morning. There were questions about the ground she wants the general election to be about (leaving the EU) and splits within the Conservative Party, but not about her consistent record of voting against every reform of the law as it relates to same-sex relations. Nor was there investigation of Mrs May's desire to remove all our civil protections by abrogating the European Convention on Human Rights. Perhaps the usually excellent Felicity Evans did put the questions but Conservative Central Office refused to sanction broadcasting the recording if they were included. We should be told. This is a subject I intend to return to when the general election campaign proper begins.
