Religious fundamentalist homophobe appointed to DWP

The Prime Minister, in keeping with his total lack of judgement and moral compass, has appointed Stephen Crabb as Secretary of State for Work & Pensions – a gentleman who barely qualifies as human, let alone fit for office. Whilst ensuring that tax payers paid thousands of pounds for the new windows on his swanky flat (triple glazing is all […]

Every day in life you learn something new.  Some days you learn more than others. Special thanks to Nicky Morgan, Secretary of State for Education for sharing little known facts with us on her appearance on this weeks BBC Question Time.
