Deselected Chaucer councillor accuses Lib Dems of racism
12 April 2006 LondonSE1 website team
Quote from above article.
"Dr Olayiwola's comments on the sexuality of Southwark councillors are inconsistent with this vision for a fairer and more tolerant society."
"I am against ... disproportionate levels of gay people"
Dr Ola is quoted by Blink as saying: "I am not against gay people whatsoever and I am not being phoney when I say some of my best friends in politics are gay. Gay people should have equal rights like everybody else.

I won't be voting for Dr Olayiwola (What is his doctorate in by the way?) Not because he's black, but
because I think he's bigoted and plays the race card when his views are questioned.

What is Dr O on about? Does he want to have his cake and eat it or is he a bit of a Vicki Pollard? Hoping the intellectual level of this Thread rises after my facile comments.

Did a little Google about the good Doctor - he's apparently a Legal Practitioner (not a term I'm familiar with) and used to lecture at the Department of Political Sciences at Lagos State University.

"I am against ... disproportionate levels of gay people" - what does that mean? How about substituting the word 'black' for 'gay' and see how it sounds. The Doctor is apparently (according to some of the articles I looked at) hot on Human Rights ... go figure.
