  1. I find it sad that some politicians are seeking to try to “milk” the pink vote. They need to back up their words & rhetoric with action.

  2. We can’t have any Tom, Dick or Mohammed pretending to be gay just to enter our country and ruin it!

    Ministers should be keeping their stupid heads down on Asylum in the UK. Their record on Asylum is gross, and they should be hanging their heads in shame and submit to being tared and featherd.

    Brian Burton sums it very nicely, I think.

    You know what happens to asylum seekers who claim to be gay and then get deported? They get killed. Nobody who isn’t facing death would do such a ridiculously dangerous thing to try to secure asylum. And if they are facing death, they don’t need to pretend to be gay.

    How very dare they all….Put them in a box, tie ’em with a ribbon, Throw ’em in the deep blue sea…aring-ding-ding!

    the silence from Stonewall is deafening.

    Maybe it would upset the Govt if their premier “gay rights” advisers criticised them openly. Maybe Summerskill would put his gong in jeopardy if he was too vocal.

  8. I have written to the Home Office on several occassions re this subject and always get fobbed off with a blah blah badly photocopied reply! The former Home Secretary coined the “be dicreet” phrase when talking about sending people back to face death!

  9. The Home Office and the Border Agency are two of the most despicable government departments; especially under the rule of Jaqui Smith (now departed to the oblivion she rightly deserves) and the very unpleasant Phil Wollas. They even refuse to grant tourist visitor visas to applicants who are deemed to be poor (“not of acceptable social standing”. Even when the applicants are sponsored by British citizens. Another side of Labour’s shameful face. The sooner we rid ourselves of this bunch of crooks the better.

  10. This is the same guy who tried to screw the Gurkhas over recently. If he thinks people who have put their life’s on the line for this country should not be allowed to live here why do we think it would be any different for LGBT asylum seekers.

    Phil Woolas is a fascist of the highest order and everything that is wrong with NULabour.
