  2. They have ruled in favour of the two guys and allowed them to stay, good news.

    It is not a good day for gay people. Wake up and think abut it. On the surface this appears to be about gay rights (ok I swallow that and even applaud it) but, deeper hidden underneath this is a facade a cover, Be prepared for a swell of immigrants who claim to be gay, even acting out a period prior to their application, or getting false papers etc they then gain assylum, gain benefits etc etc. when they are as straight as Bob the Builder… Don’t be fooled, this is not a good ruling

    Absolutely, this could have the effect of adding to homophobia in some quarters. And like it or not it will be abused, nothing is more certain. What a great story that will be for the Mail et al, when the first example of abuse comes to light.

  5. Every application for asylum should be considered on it’s individual merit. If this person is sent back home, will he/she in all likelihood DIE?

    If it means they cant mince about dancing to Kylie all night, that is not a reason. This is not about human rights, or even gay rights, but a last possible refuge for people that may lose their lives. Not that we can allow them to be what they want to be. That is simply wishful thinking. It is this difference that many on here cannot equate. We are not here to instil full human rights to people, we are here to stop them getting hacked to bits with a machete. It is about time people recognised the fundamental difference.
