Scottish politico John Charteris attempted – and failed – to stop a £31,500 public grant from benefiting a gay community center. Some may think that conservative values motivated Charteris’ move, but he says he objected to the center’s social specificity: “I don’t think we should be funding organizations which are exclusive – I like funding ones which are inclusive for everybody.” Intriguing argument. And one with which we’re almost tempted to agree. [BBC]
