  1. All aid to the Malawi government needs to be stopped immediately.

    And not a penny further should be given until homosexuality is fully decriminalised.

    Malawi clearly does not need internationalk aid, if the government has the money to spend on persecuting gay people.

    Are they being expelled from the Commonwealth?

    Why is a homophobic dump like Malawi allowed to pretend it is a civilised nation? Kick them out of the Commonwealth.

  2. With you on that one SimonM

  4. Will Malawi join the slow but steady list of African countries broadmindedly embracing human rights for all?

    Tiwonge Chimbalanga is a transsexual woman who, for obvious reasons, has been unable to start her transition. But the fact of being unable to transition don’t change that she’s a transsexual woman. This is NOT a gay marriage, but a marriage between a man and a woman.

  6. How about we be like the Israelis, send in the SAS, and rescue the poor couple. They have broken no laws, and have been held in abusive custody for months “for their own safety”. If they were Jewish they woud be free and in Israel by now.
