I was surprised to see George Osborne’s plan to tackle homophophic bullying in schools promoted so willingly by the press last Sunday.
It also features prominently on the front page of the Conservative Party website.
Unfortunately for him, though, I remembered posting about an almost identical plan put forward by the Lib Dem’s Nick Clegg back in January.
Surely the Conservatives can’t be getting so desperate to catch the extra votes the gay community could provide, that they need to re-package something already proposed by a rival party? It seems so.
My views on the proposal have not changed since January, so fortunately, you can read the old post here and just switch the names!
It seems that is what Mr Osborne has already tried to do!
