Australian Senator for the Liberal Party Opposition Cory Bernardi is to attend a Conservative Future event beginning Friday at St. Hugh's College in Oxford.
The Senator was recently sacked as personal secretary to Liberal Leader Tony Abbott after remarks likening gay marriage with bestiality. Bernardi's distinct lack of understanding about a minority, civil liberties issue has though got him a flight to London and straight into an event for young tories.
Australia House of Representatives voted not to legalise gay marriage last night. However, before the vote took place Bernardi exercised his brain cells and told the Upper House - "Is having three people that love each other should (they) be able to enter into a permanent union endorsed by society, or four people?
Bernardi went on - "There are even some creepy people out there, who say that it’s ok to have consensual sexual relations between humans and animals. Will that be a future step?"
The news comes as the anti-gay marriage clan, the Coalition for Marriage, plan to hold a rally at Tory Party conference on Monday October 8th in Birmingham.
++UPDATE++ - CF Chairman Ben Howlett says this is not a CF event or being held by any part of the Conservative Party. Full Story Here.
