    I think that Chris Bryant is correct and homophobic attitudes are being legitimised by politicians out to prove the rightness of their own cause. We are in danger of being used as pawns in wider political trends.Best wishes to Chris and Damon!

  2. He is absolutely right! Some of the language used by the politicians is disgusting.

    How dare someone like Gerald Howarth claim that the LGBT advocates are being aggressive and yet this kind of thing happens to two men making their way home in an unprovoked, aggressive homophobic attack.

    There is a picture doing the rounds on twitter about the difference between aggressive homosexuals V’s aggressive heterosexuals which clearly shows which one is worse, and it is not us gayers!

    I wish both men a speedy recovery.

  3. The problem isn’t just nasty comments by MPs.

    BBC kept repeating what Philip Hammond said on Question Time throughout the following day – IDAHO Day

    Here is just one of those news reports. –


    All day long we were hearing about “the real sense of anger” I’m afraid the media, and the BBC in particular, share the blame.

    1. it’s high time we started a boycott of the British Brainwashing Corporation. I have, already for a while. Never listening to their news. there are plenty of other sources. more balanced, less servile to the bigots and their mates.

  4. I agree, as I made clear in a previous thread relating to this homophobic attack, but had some idiot troll dismissing the connection of all this anti marriage rhetoric and rising homophobia.

  5. Still no physical description of the attackers..??

    For all the talk, do the police really care about homophobia?

    Two weeks ago I was subjected to personal verbal threats made by my neighbour which were caught on tape and passed to the police. Two days ago, yet another car destroyed. The twentieth so far. But still the cops need ‘proof’ of who could be doing this but rarely attempt to investigate

    I really don’t believe anyone ever understands what gay people go through with homophobia.

    Would be very interesting to learn who the attackers were in terms of ethniciity.
