    Act with Hope

    Please join the campaign to save Hope from certain persecution. Write to the Home Secretary and express your alarm that Hope has received removal directions and ask for his removal to be cancelled.

    Dear Sir,
    I am not writing to you as my MP, but as the deputy chair of LGBTory.Perhaps you could comment on the below deportation of one of your constituants
    Omar Kuddus

    email sent to Hopes Mp yesterday afternoon.
    Hope was living in Milton Keynes and the Milton Keyes MP, Iain Stewart, is deputy chair of LGBTory.

  5. I am of course sympathetic, but – what happened to his sisters?

    “According to the National Coalition of Anti-Deportation Campaigns, Mr Nwachukwu arrived in the UK at the end of 2009 and has spent six months in detention.”

    “Campaigners for Mr Nwachukwu say his case has been viewed with suspicion because he has not been in a relationship since arriving in the UK.”

    How much time did he actually have to get into a relationship then????

    C’mon. There are plenty of gays here. Nigerian people are no different from British people. If he belongs here, send him back here. Why fear us so much? Government does not function for anything here, so whatever pro or anti-gay laws they make are irrelevant. Believe in the god-fearing Nigerian people.

    Julius honey:
    it’s the god-fearing people I fear!

    I believe in a society wher my opinions stop one femtometre from your nose: i.e. I can believe what I like, but only objectively-proven harm is a reason to legislate and act against individuals

  9. This is outrageous!

    How can we send these people back to bigoted countries where they will almost certainly be persecuted and, possibly, killed? IT’S IMMORAL!

    All of us are to blame for the injustices in the world. We need to unite to show that humanity is above all other things. Aggression and ignorance will not achieve anything, except a world where LGBT’s will never be Equal to their fellow Heterosexual Humans, not only in the “free west” but all across the world.

    Can someone/ anyone please tell me the true state of affairs of being gay in Libya, these days and if being gay leads to persecution or can one live a open gay lifestyle.
    I know that one can get upto 5 years of imprisonment and that it does not recognise same sex relationships, but the question i am asking is does one get …really be put…… into jail …or abused due to being gay

    I do not agree that we should give asylum to anybody who is homosexual, (or whose lawyer claims they and tells heart-rending stories). The result would be that we were swamped with millions of homosexuals from all over the world, where the policies are stricter (and perhaps SANER) than in the UK. There are many persecuted heterosexuals and why do we do nothing for them?

  13. ForHeavensake 7 Jan 2011, 10:38am

    Your site distorted and misrepresented what I wrote by covering up the words “do not”.
    I DO NOT AGREE with giving such people asylum. If we do, we will be swamped with even more perverts and child-abusers.

  14. ForHeavensake 7 Jan 2011, 10:43am

    Mihangel talks above about “objectively-proven harm”. The fact that millions of people have died as a result of HIV spread by homosexual perversion seems to have escaped his attention. The developing world needs to protect itself from such disasters and having sensible rules about sexual behaviour is a necessity for them. Decadence kills!

  15. What a load of rubbish this is!! So what if someone is gay if they dont belong in this country then they shouldnt be here. This country is falling apart as it is without the help of god nos how many thousands of illegal immigrants coming here and thinking its their god given right to live here and claim every benefit under the sun when there are plenty of people here as it is with no money or even shelter. Sort this country out first before you start giving out hand outs!!!
