David Jones damages Wales with his anti-gay comments.

Welsh Secretary David Jones has come under fire after claiming gay couples “clearly” could not provide a “warm and safe environment” to raise children.

I suppose the Tory MP, who voted against the UK government’s plans to introduce gay marriage in the Commons last week, made his remarks to ITV Wales’s Face To Face programme, is at least is being a bit more honest than the rest of his colleagues (from other parties as well) who voted against the bill..

Shadow Welsh secretary Owen Smith blasted the comments as evidence that the “nasty party is alive and well under David Cameron”.

Though Jones views exists in his own Party as the vote showed.

Mr Jones said:

 “I regard marriage as an institution that has developed over many centuries, essentially for the provision of a warm and safe environment for the upbringing of children, which is clearly something that two same-sex partners can’t do.”

Mr Jones seems to be living in a perfect world of heterosexual relationships , where there's no domestic violence, alcoholic partners , infidelity etc.

And is it a warm safe environment when?

  • One partner is in the armed forces and on active service where their family are in constant fear of their safety?
  • Or even a Politician and a Government Minister absent from home for most of the week.
  • Or parking the kids of to boarding school.

What is this warm and safe environment that David Jones is talking about perhaps he can tell us.

How warm and safe are his own circumstances?

Some Gay couples are going to be bloody awful parents some brilliant and most average. Just like everyone else.

David Jones is part of the public face of Wales and his comments to us a great damage even economically as some companies may not be encouraged to invest in this Nation   with a Welsh Minister whose beliefs belong to another decadeand which consist of the Taliban Tendency (more details here)

Will people be looking at Wales and through David Jones label us in the same vein?
