  1. Good for him.

    what trade sanctions against Russia will ne imposed unless this fascist law is scrapped?

  2. Excellent, at least he had the guts to confront him directy on the issue ! I would have slapped a few documents on his desk that discredit the entire “promotion to minors” argument and be like “so whatcha gonna do about it?”

    I’d also go out of my way to explain to him that peadophiles, homosexuals and transgender people are not actually the same thing, albeit using a fun and engaging children’s book that he can understand with somewhat ease

    if he agreed I’d give him a lollipop and a gold star
    if he disagreed I’d sanction is raggedy @$$

  3. One can’t reason with someone who unreasonable

    Come on, more info please. What ‘concerns’ did he raise? What did he actually say and what response did he get?

  5. Good on him for trying. But we all knew how it would turn out.

    No amount of international pressure is going to force Putin to do anything. He is resolute to stand his ground. I read recentl that some gay activists have been granted a meeting with him. Let’s see how that pans out if at all.

    1. Putin has the loaded gun of the the church pointed squarely at the back of his head.
      Russia has swapped one form of totalitarianism for another.

    Cameron is a good friend to gay people. What a contrast to the gay hating Tories in Australia.

      Who have just come into power with last night’s election.

  8. If you believe he brought it up with Putin, then maybe you also believe in the tooth fairy!

    Cammo is one of the best PMs for gay people yet. I just cannot imagine Mr Blair ever having raised this issue with his homophobic chum George W Bush.

    1. That would be Roman Catholic Mr Blair. . . . . no, I can’t imagine it either.

  11. “Mr Cameron added that this abuse can be challenged by attending, not boycotting the Winter Olympics.”

    Yes right, just walk on into the gas chamber – that’s the way to challenge abuse! No thank you! Skipping the Olympics this year. Wish they would have given the bid to the next country on the list.

    when gay rights should be accepted all over the would moreover like the Africa countries and Russia.

    With all of these recorded events, when will people wake up to the call of gay and lesbians rights and hearken to the cry of activist? As long as what gays, Lesbians and bisexuals practice do not affects us, we should let them be.
