Persson says Buttiglione "lacking in judgement"

Published onsdag 13 oktober 2004 kl 17.09

Prime Minister Göran Persson is meeting with the new Head of the European Commission, José Manuel Barroso, on Wednesday.

Persson has joined in the debate about the controversial proposed European commissioner Rocco Buttiglione, who has been rejected by European Parliamentarians due to his controversial views on marriage and gay rights.

Buttiglione called homosexuality a sin, and suggested that the role of women was to have children and be protected by their husbands.

Persson called his views ”sensationally lacking in judgement.”
