Default nyone who thinks the Tories are better than Labour in regard topolitically correct domineering should read this

Brighton Council has withdrawn a subsidy to an old-age home after the
charity running it refused to ask pensioners about their sexual
orientation.

Brighton Council, dominated by the Tories (Conservatives 26 seats;
Labour 13; Greens 12; Lib-Dems 2) has a “fair access and diversity”
policy which determines which charities and old-age homes get funding
from the taxpayers.

The charity in question, Now Pilgrim Homes, runs 10 projects for
elderly Christians across the UK. It was ordered by the Tory council
to submit questionnaires to the 39 Christians aged over 80 who stay at
Pilgrim Home in Egremont Place, Brighton. The octogenarian residents
were ordered to fill in a questionnaire stating if they were “lesbian,
gay, bisexual, heterosexual or ‘unsure’.”

Understandably, the residents refused. Now Pilgrim Homes also declined
to use images of elderly homosexuals, lesbians, bisexuals and
transgendered people in its leaflets.

As a consequence, the Tory council has accused the charity of
“institutional discrimination” and withdrawn its £13,000 grant.

Explaining the move, a council spokesman said the charity had made
“limited progress” in ensuring the home was “accessible” to
homosexuals. “The Government specifically states the home must be
open to the gay and lesbian community and that it must demonstrate
this to qualify for funding. In the absence of any willingness to do
this, funding has been withdrawn,” the council said.

Andrew Jessop, the charity’s chief executive, said: “The council has
taken overzealousness to the extreme. People in their 90s are very
vulnerable and shouldn’t be treated in this way.”

Remember: A vote for the Tories is identical to a vote for Labour.
They are the Tweedledee and Tweedledum monsters of British politics,
both of whom seek the destruction of this country.

The BNP’s position on sexuality is that it is a private matter and no
concern of the state whatsoever. No one should be punished — or given
special preference — on account of their sexuality, and it is
symptomatic of the politically correct madness which has gripped Tory
and Labour alike, that this is even an issue.

I'll bet the councillors were not asked but some zealous officer is
interpreting a guvment edict off his or her own bat.
