Now why might that be?

I found British Prime Minister David Cameron’s concerns to be intriguing:

after 11.30am, Mr Schofield challenged the PM over rumours about Tories
being accused of child abuse.  He handed over a card with names gleaned
from the internet, telling the Premier: ‘You know the names on that
piece of paper. Will you be speaking to those people?’

clearly-unhappy Mr Cameron said he did not like what the presenter was
doing, and warned he was fuelling a ‘witch hunt’. He said: ‘There is a
danger if we are not careful, that this can turn into a sort of
witch-hunt, particularly against people who are gay.

Now, why would would anyone imagine that accusations of child abuse would turn into a witch-hunt, particularly against people who are gay?  What an extremely educational reaction.
