Writing about Iain Dale’s bid to become PPC for Bracknell the Daily Mail has resorted to its usual approach to those it disapproves of. ‘Isn’t it charming how homosexuals rally like-minded┬áchaps to their cause’ is one of the homophobic remarks made by the Daily Mail in guise of Ephraim Hardcastle . Of course – this is free speech and the Mail can say it – but Iain Dale is quite right to hit back and show the remark up for what it is – homophobia.
