Philip Lardner, who yesterday was removed from his position within the Tory party after making derogatory homophobic comments, has been on STV news to clear up the meaning behind his post.

Lardner, who was the candidate for North Ayrshire and Arran in South West Scotland, was removed from his position after he posted on his site under the section “What I believe in” that he believes “homosexuality is not ‘normal behaviour’.” The comment has now been removed for the site.

Following the news, the Tory candidate was also suspended from his position as a primary school teacher.

Speaking to STV, he attempted to justify his comment, saying: "I believe ordinary people are sick and tired of political correctness.

This is still a broadly Christian country, and I believe parents should have the right to oppose the promotion of homosexuality in schools.

"By suspending me as a Tory, David Cameron appears to be saying there is no place in the Party for anyone with Christian beliefs.

"I’m still a candidate on ballot papers in North Ayrshire and Arran and if voters back my stand for free speech, I will become their independent Member of Parliament."

Since David Cameron took leadership within the Conservative party he has tried to change the publics views on the party as a homophobic party. Under his leadership he removed Section 28 despite a high number of his party not supporting his actions.
