I'm a Tory, but both Osbourne and IDS called some gay Labour MP a pantomime dame.

Why? lol.. I thought it was against standing orders to make personal comments? lol.. Would Hague for instance like it if Milliband or Balls or whoever called him baldy?

Had to look this one up, from Christmas 2010. Thanks for the laugh.

Labour MPs have criticised George Osborne after he likened a gay shadow minister to a "pantomime dame".

The comment came after Chris Bryant accused the chancellor of delighting in playing "Baron Hardup" and suggested he "play Prince Charming instead".

well to be honest, they legalised gay marriage, I think what osbourne said was a bit uncalled for but no more uncalled for than something like "calm down, dear" to women etc

Bryant is a big catty queen. Just check out the response.

And I don't think IDS ever said that, did he?

Chris Bryant made reference to panto first. George Osborne then responded by referencing panto as well. IDS has done the same. Nothing homophobic about it.
