Tom Hughes started this petition to LBC and

Recently Ann Widdecombe said homosexuality could, in the future be cured by science. In an article published by The Guardian today, Nigel Farage has defended her view suggesting that people’s views on it were a ‘matter of conscience’ and that ‘more people in public life should have their own views instead of following the mainstream media’.

This petition calls upon LBC to remove Nigel Farage from his show on the grounds that protection of minorities is key to British values. Given his high profile in politics and the media, in failing to condemn Widdecombe’s comments and in light of his subsidiary comments he is failing to acknowledge that homosexuality is a fact and is perfectly normal and should not be subject to prejudice or discrimination in any way. In fact I would argue his statement about conscience is tantamount to suggesting someone’s conscience could potentially make such actions ‘OK’. 

The success of this petition would be the removal on Nigel Farage from his position of journalistic responsibility as presenter of the ‘Nigel Farage Hour’ on LBC.
