    I love Peter Tatchell.

    If you want to let the Met know how angry you are that they are applying homophobic double standards when it comes to homophobia versus racism then let them know.

    They can be reached at

  2. I made a formal complaint to the Met police about this a few days ago, but I have heard nothing back, which is very disappointing.

    to the Stratford Events Planning Team (police team) and say you would like a specific response to this question.

    “Will you give the same permission to white racist bands who advocate killing and injuring Asians and Blacks so long as they give a similar undertaking that Bounty killer gave that has allowed him to perform in Stratford this Sunday?”


    “Have the Police Events Planning Team visited Bounty Killers’ website and see his hate videos they advocate extreme violence and killing of gays? Do they think such a performer is suitable to perform in their borough?”

    I am awaiting a response and a complain number over this.

    please do the same as it is important we all make as many complaints as possible.


    Jeff –

  5. After viewing part of the accompanying video I am encouraged by the fact that the “performer’s” English (if it can be called that) is almost completely unintelligible and is probably understood by very few.

    You might also want to try contacting your elected Greater London Assembly member on the Metropolitan Police Authority and ask them to make some enquiries as to why ther event has been licensed.
