As the European election results roll in, the Brexit Party’s Ann Widdecombe has made a surprise return to the frontline of British politics. The former Big Brother contestant called the result a wake-up call for the Conservative government, which has been thrust into a leadership contest following the resignation of Prime Minister Theresa May. Widdecombe is notable for her staunch anti-LGBT stance. During her time as an MP from 1987 until 2010, the former Conservative voted against LGBT rights repeatedly. In recent years she has used her Daily Express column to espouse her far-right views, branding the acceptance of transgender people “lunacy” and backing businesses who refuse to serve gay customers.
