Andrew Turner MP (Getty and Twitter). A Conservative MP has allegedly told school students that it is “ wrong ” to be gay. “This is because (and this is a direct quote) he thinks that homosexuality is ‘ wrong ’ and ‘dangerous to society ’.

“It’s terrifying that in this age and point in our development as a society, there are still people that can’t care enough about a person’s wellbeing to just accept who they are.

“And the most terrifying thing is that we as an island consistently vote him in to represent us. Well f*** that. HE DOES NOT REPRESENT ME.”

Speaking to local website OnTheWight, she said: “Other students were shocked, equally shocked I believe and completely horrified.”

Local paper The Isle Of Wight County Press quoted other students who were present and confirmed Poucher’s account.

Journalist Owen Jones had called on Theresa May to expel Turner from the party if Poucher’s account proved to be accurate.

Times journalist Sam Coates tweeted Turner had announced on Friday evening he would stand down as MP.

He was first elected MP for the Isle of Wight in 2001. He voted against legalising gay marriage in 2013.
