    Since all these problems have been brought to light. Is anything being done for the LGBT asylum seekers? rather than just hearding them around like cattle.

    Brian, ask Jacqui Smith, she’s keen on banning the majority of gay asylum seekers even if it means death upon return to their homelands. I daresay the same will continue under Cameron. Institutionalised homophobia is rampant in the UK. He’s not exactly speaking out is he, proves there will be no change when he gets to occupy number 10?

  3. Institutionalised homophobia? Where do you people pick up this CRAP?

    The country is overrun with economic migrants. If they can use any and all excuses to stay here, they will. I very much doubt there are many genuine asylum seekers at all, and it is also very difficult to prove otherwise, and that they are under threat. We are an island nation, so the majority are coming from other EU countries. They should be returned back to there where they can be processed and dealt with. I have sympathy with some of these people, and I appreciate we ought to take our fair quota, but most of these immigrants are marching roughshod across Europe specifically to come here and get work illegally. Once that problem has been sorted, then we can concentrate on genuine cases.

    I feel very sorry for these people, but I am honestly not sure what I could personally do to help.
