The Sun has caused havoc after publishing a poll yesterday asking whether gay people should be allowed to be cabinet ministers.

In light of the recent revelation that David Laws had been renting rooms for his partner James Lundie in a bid to hide his sexuality, the paper published the survey to find out how Nation felt about the expenses scandal.

The popular tabloid newspaper caused controversy as it asked its readers if they agreed with his resignation and the third question in the YouGov survey was "Should gay people be cabinet ministers?"

The results showed 89% of the 958 people voted in support of gay cabinet ministers, with 13% saying it is "a good thing" while 76% did not mind.

The remainder showed, 5% did not have a view on the topic and a further 5% said that gay cabinet ministers were "a bad thing".

According to the The Mirror, The Gay and Lesbian Humanist Association said: "The Sun is clearly trying to whip up hostility. It is heartening that 95% did not think it was bad. Britain is more rational than the Sun would like."
