How Modern is Julian Brazier MP?

Do I represent modern
I don't pretend that
I'm not nasty

Here we have three quite different politicians that have fairly right wing views. However, they all have one thing in common, they do not agree with the President of the United States or the Prime Minister of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Island, when it comes to marriage equality. 
Do I represent modern
Not one of them is known for promoting LGBT equality. One is a President, one an MEP and the other is an MP belonging to the same political party as the British Prime Minister. Many people supported the British Conservative Party, including LGBT people because David Cameron promised them full LGBT equality.Equality does not mean having a third rate term to discribe your marriage.Fair enough if the odd backbencher like Canterbury MP Julian Brazia have views on LGBT equality that are closer to other parties, but why allow them to call themselves modern Conservatives?

It would appear that the UK now has two very different Conservative Parties, both claiming to speak 
for modern Britain

I commented on this at the time of first publication, my comment very briefly appeared and was then deleted.

In essence I reminded the author that whilst portraying Robert Mugabe as some sort of villain, it should be recalled that the same left wing luvvies who now revile the man, probably clamoured for him in his African Nationalist days and applauded his rise to power.

Now thirty miserable years on for most of the people of Zimbabwe, perhaps Ian Smith had a point when he said that the transition to majority rule should be more gradual.

What is, however, probably more worrying is that in this context, Mugabe is more condemned for his anti-gay stance than for all the other evils he has visited upon Zimbabweans including the near genocide of the Matabele.
