    More about Robert’s case here

  2. England is full of homosexuals, and doesn’t need to have one more.

    1. I think you’ve got the wrong URL here Sam. If your anti-gay why are you browsing http://www.pinknews.co.uk? Fool :)

      What and who are you this week, Rich?

  3. This makes me ashamed to be British, no one can choose where they are born, and our bigotry as a nation is increasing dramatically. Who can honestly say that if they faced the kind of persicutions Ugandans do on a daily basis be it for sexuality or other reasons they wouldnt try to emigrate, god bless Robert, I can only hope reason and common sense prevail.

The intenational human rights amnesty had better get involved with these cases of deportation in their foriegn countries as well, the uganandan government are terrrorist, and unciviliezed people like their evil neighbors of othe afrian uncivilized people, the u;nited states and the un, had better start taking action against these people, the ugandan govenment and milita need to be wiped out and other african countries and militants , there countries must be given back to the women and children and people who want peace in thier countreis , not monster and terrorist, who are inhumande and uncivi;lized barbarians, the wicked demons, rape and mujrder there own wives and children, their countries riddle with hiv aids, becausse of the filth of the hetersexual men in there countries, animal sadistic behavior, the monsters harrassing the civilized people lilke her in the united states the bigots, actions must be taken and the un had better start doing their job in protecting those people and

    This is ridiculous and appalling. The man clearly wishes to contribute to society so I don’t see the problem. Time for these people to heard and allow LGBT people to stay and not foreign criminals.

    Sort it Britain.

  8. There is a huge fear within UKBA and the government that if there are too many successful asylum claims for being gay, that the country is going to be swamped with millions of people falsely claiming to be gay. There is a fear that asyum seekers will say anything just to get into the UK, and, as it is hard to prove-disprove being gay then this would be an easy option to get in. It just reflects (what is now probably) the majority feeling in the UK – an intense fear of immigration and belief that immigrants are the root cause of all problems. I don’t think it is actually homophobia – it’s just a phobia of immigration. So, that is why they have been coming down hard on these cases. For this particular case, they seem to have called on the expertise of the psychiatrist but then completely ignored/misrepresented his advice. This seems very weird to say the least. I’m hoping this guy wins his appeal. It shows that the governments pledge not to deport gay people last year was nonsense.

    Robert’s removal has been “deferred”

      This link/post was not posted by me, but by the troll, engaging in identity theft due to a lack of ethics.
