Does British PM David Cameron think paedos are the same as gays ?
Paedo-mania continues in the UK (in the wake of the Jimmy Savile scandal) with bland morning tv presenter Philip Schofield presenting David Cameron, the Prime Minister, with a list of well-known paedophiles he got off the internet ... this was shocking enough, but then, Cameron says "We must not turn this into a witchhunt against gays" - does Cameron, alledgly gay-friendly (and he must know a lot of them at the top of his conservative party) really think gays and paedos are the same thing or that gays are interested in child abuse ?
I think he has a lot of explaining to do here ...
Cameron actually handled this very well - after being ambushed by a silly tv presenter with this list of alledged sex offenders. What did Schofield expect Cameron to do about with it ?
A tv presenter with any gravitas would never pull a silly stupid stunt like this, it just makes him look like a real prat. Hopefully, this will spell his downfall from the rarified world of morning tv.
Isnt Cameron the one who has been pushing for gay marriage which the rest of his tory party do not want?
A lot of the politicians mentioned in connection are gay. Some closeted gay men. Derek Laud's name has been 'linked' to the North Wales care home abuse - he was a teenage himself at the time but his thrown into the mix because he's a sexual deviant.
I don't like Cameron but can see why he said what he did.

He's right. For many decades, Fundies have preached that all gays are paedos. As a result, many people believe that lie and when there is a paedo in the news, they blame the gays.
Fundie hate-monger Anita Bryant put it on the front page of newspapers all across the nation.
can we just take a moment to distinguish between paedophiles and child molesters please... i was of the understanding that a paedophile is sexually attracted to children, whereas a child molester is actually prepared to molest a child or watch still or moving images of children being molested?
there IS a difference!
btw, Cameron has been well aware of the Hollie Greig case for a loooong time and has done sweet FA about it... what a farce this whole thing is...
"Oh my God. I'm back. I'm home. All the time, it was... We finally really did it ... You Maniacs! You blew it up! Ah, damn you! God damn you all to hell!"
We are switching to the new platform for The DataLounge this weekend. All of our mobile users have been using it for over a week and all first time users have been using it for about a month - which adds up to well over one million users. So we're ready to end this phase of the testing and move everybody to the new site. (more)
And yes, we've changed the look and some of how it operates.
Yes, we know you just *hate* it in well in advance.
Yes, we know we suck.
Yes, we are the biggest suckers that ever sucked.
But it was time for a change and with the huge shift to mobile it was long overdue. We've taken this opportunity not only to update the look but also make major changes under the hood (or "bonnet" if you're either British or pretentious or both). And we have to prepare for 2016 - a presidential election year where we can normally expect to see a 60% jump in traffic (yes, we've seen 5 presidential elections so far…Christ we're old).
The site has a bunch - nay, plethora - of new features which will make the site more usable: better search, the ability to ignore posters and threads, see link previews, to pick up a thread where you left off, spam and malware filtering and more.
If you want you can go explore and see for yourself, Click here.
And while running the tests we've noticed two interesting reactions to the new system - people are spending more time on the site and more people that come stay around longer and look at more stuff. Both good things. Yay!
Possibly we've not slain all the dragons and there will be issues that come up during the switchover. There's a help button in the lower right hand corner of the page which you can use to send us bug reports.
Please include as much information about the hardware (PC, Mac, Tablet, Phone etc), operating system (Windows, Mac OS, Android, iOS etc) and browser (Chrome, Safari, Opera, Internet Explorer etc) that you are using as possible to help us replicate and fix the problem.
Please note that complaints about colors, fonts, icons and the like are not "bugs" - they are design choices that we've made and we expect one or two cases of world-class bitching. But they won't actually cause headaches, scurvy, heart attacks, Restless Leg Syndrome, Morgellon's Disease or the vapors (but have your smelling salts at hand just in case).
Talking to DataLounge servers. Please wait a moment...
