    Nov 18th is not so relevant to Scotland, where section 28 was repealed by the Scottish Parliament in June 2000. But a great idea for the rest of Britain. We need to remember these things!

    1. But if Section 28 was only repealed by the Scottish Parliament in June 2000, then does that not mean that Scots suffered under that frightful piece of persecuting legislation for just over TEN WHOLE YEARS?

      And so how come the repealing of Section 28 in Scotland is not something that Scots too ought to be marking and celebrating?

      Get your pink scarves, your pink ties, your pink hats, or your entire pink costumes out and ready!

  2. Section 28 didn’t affect schools, they weren’t under local authority control.

    1. What an extraordinary claim.

      Please be advised that Section 28 DID affect schools.

      And that the vast majority of schools WERE under local authority control.
