Christian Institute inflates numbers
The fantasy-prone homophobes of the Christian Instute have more than doubled the previously-estimated turnout for the Cardiff anti-Springer protest, claiming that “about 1,500” attended the demo. Even the BNP – hardly noted for their honesty – put the number at “almost 700”.
Also, having failed in their aim to get the show cancelled in their Newcastle home, they still managed to spin a victory out of it by pointing out that the Theatre Royal turned in a loss of “£16,700”. However, as this was taxpayers money, and the theatre boss Philip Bernays believes that the Instutute’s “campaign of dis-information” did have the effect of deterring people, it is hard to see what they are so un-Christianly crowing about.
