Interesting, if only because he pulled it when Twitter noticed, post from Richard Drax MP (Conservative, South Dorset):

Yes, if you can believe it, homosexuality will be on the curriculum for students studying maths, geography and science. According to the Sunday Telegraph, children as young as four could be included. Apparently, these lessons to "celebrate the gay community" are not compulsory and schools will be left to decide. This plan is ludicrous and pushes political correctness to new bounds. I would have thought raising educational standards and teaching our children to read, write and add up is far more important than imposing questionable sexual standards on those too young to understand their equality czar

Yes, as with Eric Pickles and Grant Shapps, the political direction of the Coalition is seemingly directly dictated, not from the traditions of British conservatism, let alone from the traditions of British liberalism, but from the traditions of British newspaper frothing-right wing noise machine lunacy.
