Bigots never won fair maids. Calling people bigots won even fewer.

Gordon Brown calling this woman a bigot in 2010 played no small part in landing us with what Norman Tebbit recently characterised as a 'dog of a coalition'.

And now Stonewall are in financial bother for the same thing.

Barclays are threatening to withdraw their sponsorship from Stonewall's annual awards ceremony this year if the award for 'Bigot of the Year'  is not withdrawn.

Apart from the very poor shortlist, that particlar award has probably run its course.

Would it be ever so radical to suggest we stopped the name calling, figured out that Barclays do far more harm than the odd dotty cleric and grew up a bit?
