David Cameron’s recent apology and admission that Conservatives got it wrong over Section 28 is a welcome step forward but I wonder whether Mr Cameron has the support of his party faithful. I recall nasty and hateful comments from some Tory MPs when debating Section 28 and equalling the age of consent.

Most Tories also opposed Labour’s agenda on issues like civil partnerships, adoption rights and hate crime legislation. We’re well into Pride season now but somehow I just can’t imagine many Tory activists taking to the streets in celebration of Britain’s lesbian and gay culture.
