"The truth is we don't have enough openly gay and lesbian MPs being selected for parliament; just as we don't have enough black and minority ethnic MPs and we don't have enough women MPs. Parliament ought to represent the country -- it ought to look like the country that we stand for and represent."

-- Shadow Home Secretary and Labour Member of Parliament Yvette Cooper in a speech at Stonewall's Workplace Conference.
