  1. Ever thought about going forwards rather than backwards?

  2. The sheer hopelessness is overwhelming. Ignore the poverty corruption and state brutality or state sanctioned brutality, let’s make sure those gays can’t get married.

    There are people in this country I feel who would feel more at home in Zimbabwe.

      I agree. All of those Tory back benchers for starters and their band of hate mongering bigots at C4M. Dr. Sharon James is one who would find comfort in Zimbabwe I’m sure and so too would Colin Hart, Lord Carey, Bob Blackman, Nadine Dorries,Sir Roger Gale, Giles Chichester and Craig Whittaker and a small handful of Labour bigots too.

      You have lost sight of reality if you are comparing Dr Carey to President Mugabe. Your view has become myopic.

  3. We all know that George W Bush looks like a chimpanzee. Robert Mugabe on the other hand looks like a Silverback Gorilla. Both are imbeciles!

      Doubly unfair on Silverback Gorillas that. They are far more handsome animals than Mugabe, and certainly have a lot more empathy and compassion for others than he does.

  4. …and we’re surprised by this?

    Not dead yet? I bet Satan doesn’t even want him!

  6. Anything coming out of this country is not even worth our attention or mentioning…when they exit the age stone of thinking, we might consider listening!

    What say does Morgan Tsvangirai have in the new Constitution? Unlike Robert Mugabe Tsvangirai conceeded that gay rights are human rights and surely there should be some concession for gays in the new Constitution even if it means just removing the threat of prosecution and imprisonment for homosexuality. Knowing Mugabe he would have a 100% say in the whole thing and Tsvangirai is having to play the ‘yes man’ just to avoid more trouble. As for the clause limiting presidential terms, I guess that this will not take effect until Mugabe is dead and buried which most of us hope will be sooner rather than later.

  8. Hardly news. Now if Zimbabwe were going pro gay, now that would be news.

    Backward idiots.

  9. This is the result of all those anti racism people who forced this vile mugbe and his repulsive zimbabwe on the once great Rhodesia

  10. And why do they even need a constitution ? I mean it is not like zimbabwe is even a democracy.

    Oh the Catholic Church would be proud of Zimbabwe seems that Mugabe hasn’t forgotten his Catholic education after all. Catholics did try to orchestrate an attack on Mugabe at first through their Archbishop, Pius Ncube – but he was forced to resign when they discovered him poking his housekeeper.
    Glad to see that the Catholic bishops of England, Wales and Scotland would like Mugabe’s law here in England too!

  12. I sincerely hope we’re not still sending aid to this dreadful, disgusting regime. And, if it’s still a Commonwealth Country … why?
