    Has that backward dump Jamaica been expelled from the Commonwealth yet?

  2. Finally justice, lets just hope he doesn’t get a slap on the wrist

  3. Sadly I very much doubt the Jamaican authorities will consider a homophobic crime as being an aggravating factor, indeed they’ll just continue to deny it is a hate-crime at all.

  4. And we STILL allow those vile dancehall artist to perform here in the UK


  5. Jamaica’s official stance on homophobia is bad enough, but that attitude bleeds across to UK as well. Ever wondered why there isn’t a gay float at the Notting Hill Carnival?

    If the sentence for being homosexual is 10 years hard labour, I’ll be interested to see what sentence they give for killing a homosexual

    Sister Mary Clarence, I have never been there and I don’t know any Jamaicans, but from what I’ve read he’ll probably get a medal.

    Thanks for the follow-up, Jessica Geen.

  9. It’s “Green” actually. Dear God, a journo that can’t even spell her own name…

  10. Now I’ve embarrassed myself. I could have sworn it was Green.
    I stand corrected. *erk*

    The word is “jerk”!
