Andrea Leadsom gets Brexit. Time to test run some queer-bashing
Andrea Leadsom Says Parents Should Choose When Children Are ‘Exposed’ To LGBT Education
Andrea Leadsom has denied claims she opposes LGBT education in schools, after saying parents should decide when their children are “exposed” to information about gay relationships.

The leader of the House of Commons came under fire on Tuesday after she told LBC that families should be able to withdraw children from lessons about LGBT relationships “up to a certain age”.

“I think it is right that government should have passed legislation that requires that relationships and sex education is taught in schools, but at the same time, I also agree that it is right that parents should be able to choose the moment at which their children become exposed to that information,” Leadsom told presenter Nick Ferrari. https://www.huffingtonpost.co.uk/entry/ ... qpn1cRr2WF

Thing is if you flip that you could question why RE is on the curriculum and if it is, why is it taught by people with belief.

According to C4 News, she's just quit the cabinet.

Deluded enough for a second leadership run, do you think?

Hope so. Who gets the contract to print the campaign t-shirts?

She could go with “At least I’m not Chris Grayling!” as a slogan

The 'At least I have children' was an unmitigated disaster back in 2016.

Or was it a political masterstroke allowing her to dodge a bullet? None of the Leave candidates seemed to have the appetite to try and deliver Brexit, by stepping away from the leadership contest she ensured that May would take the flak for all the problems associated with delivering Brexit.

Bit of a gobful for t-shirt but worth a shot.

I’m an absolute nobody who got lucky, if we never see her again it will be too soon.

Up against a Tory Jeremy Corbyn might favour Jeremy Corbyn's fortunes.

Apparently, cringeworthy total lack of self-awareness and self-congratulatory doesn't begin to cover it.



Twitter trendy thingy


Edit - It's worse than any scene setting can imply.

Is it anything like Father Ted accepting his Golden Cleric award? If it is, I'll watch it.

That's exactly the comparison someone made in replies.
