Here’s what Scottish Labour Leader Kezia Dugdale wrote in her Daily Record column:
‘The remark that I am referring to was posted on Twitter by Stuart Campbell, who writes for the website Wings Over Scotland. In the Daily Record, I called out Mr Campbell for his homophobic comments.’
Here’s what blogger Stuart Campbell (Rev?) tweeted:
‘Oliver Mundell is the sort of public speaker that makes you wish his dad had embraced his homosexuality sooner.’
Campbell is now pursuing Dugdale at Edinburgh Sheriff Court for defamation and demanding £25 000 in compensation. Oliver’s dad, MP David Mundell ‘came out’ last year. Dugdale is also gay.
I’m definitely not a homophobe; my uncle lives next to people who have a friend who knows a same-sex couple and invites them over. Seriously though, do you think Campbell’s comments were homophobic or just funny. It’s difficult for an old guy to know what’s correct these days.
