    #Bitter’n'twisted that’s why it’s suggested that LGBT groups help in ‘screening’ – this is the point the Canadians are taking up. Also you are really talking about small numbers, double figures – this has been the Ditch experience.

    And you can bet if this was about people fleeing oppressive regimes based on their religion, there would be no deportations for fear of a backlash by religious groups at home. Of course there is homophobia in the Home Office, no matter who occupies number 10 Downing Street. Even if there is a sudden policy change, you can bet the next government will face opposition and possible and probably overturn it. Xenophobia and homophobia are not confined to any one party but we’ll find more in the Tory party make no mistake about that. The Canadians will do more about this than we will.
