    well what do you expect, another african state with its hand out for aid, yet will to kill inocent people. Time for the woprld to say enough is enough, if a country does not allow its people freedom then that country does not get any aid, funding from the rest of the world, let the people starve and feel real pain so that they vote these goverments out of power, also attach any assets and or funds beloning to the ruling elete or that homphobic country outside that country. Play hardball,

      I wonder if these savages are being allowed to send athletes to the Olympics? If so will the government be able to make sure they leave when it’s finished?

      1. I gheddit paddy

        anti gay europeans = misguided
        anti gay africans = savages

        racist prick

          @…
          …so in your ignorant infantile brain, Savages = Black.
          Where did i ever say anti gay Europeans = misguided?. Idiot !! No you most certainly don’t get it. You call me paddy small p and yet you have the gall to call me racist. Yea right. … or is it OK in your English head to be racist toward the Irish?
          Oh and btw, I use the word savages regularly in reference to anyone I think comes under that particular banner, including ignorant racist English. Member of the BNP the ultimate savages, are you?

          1. I couldn’t even read that

            you’re a racist dick

          2. Paddyswurds 17 Mar 2012, 3:38pm

            Why is that not a surprise? You’re an intellectually bereft racist prick.

          3. Leave it girls

      2. I don’t think using words like savages is really appropriate, indicative as it is of a rather racist attitude. Better take the moral high-road than sink into that particular swamp of iniquitous language.

    2. And who will starve? The people who make the laws or the poorest which will normally include the LGBT people.

      Think before you start banging on your keyboard you idiot.

    Exactly, equality before the law, whether it’s based on race, gender, ethnicity, sexually, religion or gender orientation, is a basic Human Right. Those countries that don’t respect fundamental rights deserve the condemnation of those that do.

    1. part of a certain religion is polygamy.
      core to a certain ethnic group is polygamy.
      The right of a man to practice Polygamy
      shouldn’t the UK allow this?

  3. Christians are behind the Nigeria anti-gay laws. They are behind everything and anything that is anti-gay. They have become the very evil, in their minds that they have tried to stop for so long. They now need to be stopped at all cost before they destroy all life as we know it. They are like a cancer in the world that will kill it is not cut out.

    1. Not just Christians. those hateful bigots dispensing Shiria law in the northern regions of that country. Christians jail gays, Islam kills them.
      Not a chance I would ever visit or support that economy.

        We dont need your visit nor support.Stay there with yourgodlessness-we are not going to invert God’s clearly given instruction because of bigoted few of you that has been handed over to “reprobate mind”.Stay there,we dont need you here.

        1. Hi Izu great news you have just won the Pink News Lottery your prize is gob sh 1t of the year and a fully paid up course in a de cult centre of your own choice. Now don’t forget to provide us with your full date of birth, telephone number and address where we can send your prize. Remember Cheesus of Nazareth are so good you can never get enough.

        2. Which particular god, the one of the Isrealites or the one of the Arabs?

    2. There is considerable evidence of a connection between American evangelicals and the kill the gays bill in Uganda, so it would come as no surprise to find a connection also to Nigeria. However, homophobia is very prevalent in African cultures regardless of Christian influences.

  4. Nigeria is a commonwealth country and yet if the Queen signs gay marriages into law she would in theory be liable for tn years in a Nigerian prison if she ever goes back there!

    1. Nigeria is the most corrupt state on earth. Ken Saro Wiwa was murdered by shell and the govt. Nothing there to be proud of

    @PrinzOtto…
    …….”Not a chance I would ever visit or support that economy.” ….well I have news for you; if you are a British or American taxpayer you already are supporting the Nigerian economy and paying the wages of the barbaric bigots who….I was going to say run… use Nigeria as their corrupt fiefdom and who make the laws that murder GLB people every week.
    If you are a Gay taxpayer you pay proportionately more than married hetties (yet we are denied equal rights) do and your money is helping murder Nigerian Gay people

  6. Bravo European Parliament.

    Gay Rights = Human Rights

    1. Funny they won’t say anything to Russia as they know Russia will tell them to fakoff

      1. Russia doesn’t have laws that call for execution of gays, and homosexuality although despised is legal there. The reality is that majority of African continent has a political and popular support for extreme prosecution of LGBT.

  7. Nigeria is an absolutely disgusting place run by a bunch of religious fanatics that I believe are never going to change their way. I support not buying anything from there, not allowing their teams/athletes to play in any non-African/Arab sport leagues, not sending them any money, and not doing any politics with them.

    1. Well start with Shell petrol

      @Lumi Bast….
      …….careful or you’ll have the intellectually challenged
      James! on your case. Any criticism of any African country is to him racist, but he has no problem with being racist to the Irish. Typical english thug. Probably a member of the BNP or UKIP

    3. Lumi, what will you do with Saudi Arabia?

  8. Suge Knights 19 Mar 2012, 10:49am

    Bull*hit! You’re more likely to be stoned holding hands in brixton then you are in Lagos. Theres many gays in nigeria and people know who they are. Ive been many times with my camp whit partner. Besides the police are more busy killing armed robbers.

    1. lol

  9. The UK currently pisses up the wall £141m per annum in aid to Nigeria, to increase over five years to £305m – so that corrupt Nigerian senators can have an annual wardrobe allowance of $44k. Barbaric and insane. Cut the aid immediately!
