    It will be interesting to see whether Edward Leigh(conservative defence spokesman),Christopher Chope,Julian Brazier or Anne Widdecombe sign this motion? Or-perhaps table an alternative one?

    Anne Widdecombe sign? I just saw her legging it out of Millets clutching a ticket to Uganda, flak jacket, handcuffs, rope, stun gun and a sub machine gun. Me thinks no on the signing front…

    * UGANDA GAY RIGHTS * UGANDA GAY RIGHTS * UGANDA GAY RIGHTS *

    * EQUAL CIVIL RIGHTS * EQUAL CIVIL RIGHTS * EQUAL CIVIL RIGHTS *

    Scott Lively and Richard Cohen should be banned from Uganda just as Savage and Phelps are banned from the UK. They are the hate-mongers behind this entire sordid mess.

    How many of the MPs signing are tory? Who are they and why haven’t they been made public?

    • For how long has one warned the British Government and Home office regarding the perils and stance in Uganda?
    • My cries fell on deaf ears and as per usual we still are doing NOTHING about it.

  6. Frankly any MP who doesn’t sign deserves to be kicked out of Parliament. It’s the absolute minimum any decent person could do.

    We should follow the lead of the Swedes – seldom a bad idea, and threaten to cut aid.

    The ugandan Parliament will then have to decide whether persecuting gays takes priority over presecuting gay people.
