Philippa Stroud, who was recently in hot water over allegations that she tried to cure gays from her church group, has lost her seat within Parliament to the Lib Dem candidate Paul Burstow.

The Tory candidate lost out on her seat to represent, Sutton and Cheam in South London, despite odds on being favourite to win her local election by 3%.

Stroud, who was the founder of the King’s Arms Project, a church and night shelter, fought back after three people claimed she tried to rid them of their sexuality and said the aim of the church was “to get a person to a position where they don’t have these sinful thoughts and emotions”. 


In a statement regarding the story printed in The Observer, she said: “The idea that I am prejudiced against gay people is both false and insulting,” she said.




"I make no apology for being a committed Christian...However it is categorically untrue that I believe homosexuality to be an illness, and I am deeply offended that the Observer has suggested otherwise."
