But that is not the thrust of this blog post, no. Both Michal Kamiński of the Tories Polish Law and Justice Party EU allies and Roberts Zīle of the Latvian For Fatherland and Freedom Party will be attending a fringe event on the future of Europe.
One wonders what sort of future that will be. Kamiński, who actually leads the Conservatives EU grouping, comes from a party that have said that homosexuals should be isolated and not be allowed to teach. They also launched an investigation into 'all' gay groups for illegal financing, criminal connections, and pedophilia. The whole thrust was to brand all homosexuals paedophiles.
They will also spark issues with the Tory party's Jewish supporters, Zīle annually celebrates Hitler's Waffen-SS with a march past of SS veterans. Condemned by Mark Gardner from the Community Security Trust, which monitors violence against Jews, who said:
"Members of this party participate in Waffen-SS ceremonies and that must cause grave concern and pain to Jews and any anyone else who suffered at the hands of Nazism – even in the context of Latvia's very complex history."
So some very queer mixed messages are being sent from Dave's allegedly 'progressive' Conservatives this week. To not just tolerate these men and their believes but to have them addressing the future of Europe is a disgrace. It shows the Tories true colours so that even while the LGBTory group party the night away on Canal Street that these men will be addressing delegates as friends for a right-wing Europe.
