give us your tired and really poor and even aids infected coz conservatives care about votes

Sure they do. Just like all politicians. 

Hey, since I don’t vote here my opinion is worth less then nothing.  I’ll give it anyway.

I think the head of the cons. party here (Tories) is dreadfully wrong if he wants to force faith schools to teach that homosexuality is OKAY.
I don’t want to get into an argument on the subject of sex or odd ppl but come on.  There are folks who are not necessarily haters of anyone but believe that homosexuality is a moral and religious issue.  Their ministers are not preaching jihad against those people but don’t believe it’s a normal lifestyle and certainly do not want to teach children that it’s simply another of life’s choices.  So when the head of the Conservative party here says he would ” force faith schools to teach pupils there was nothing wrong with being gay,” I’d say he was skating on pretty thin ice.  I might be dead wrong on that but it’s how I see it.

I’m not trained in the field and so shouldn’t spout opinions on things I’ve no experience with.  Like parenthood. But it just seems to me that if I were a parent and had a child in a faith based school, or any school for that matter, I would be darned uncomfortable having strangers “teach” my kid that homosexuality was an okay and normal thing.  I’m not convinced at the same time however, that telling a kid it’s normal will turn him or her into that state of being.  I mean, wouldn’t they have to be oriented that way to begin with?  Sensitive damn subject and glad I’m not and never was a parent.  That is a MAJOR responsibility I was happy to pass on.  But I sure do sympathize with people who are parents in todays world.  I think their job is far harder then it ever was before. And much harder to supervise their offspring too.  Kudos to those who manage it well.

Cameron: Gay refugees from Africa should be given asylum in UK

By Daniel Martin

Gay refugees from Africa should be granted asylum in the UK, David Cameron has said.

The Tory leader suggested that homosexuals should be allowed to stay in Britain if their lives would be put in danger were they sent home.

Under immigration rules, gay men are often sent back to countries with homophobic regimes - and advised to keep their sexuality a secret in case local police attack them.

But in an interview with gay magazine Attitude, Mr Cameron said the rules should be changed to protect homosexuals fleeing persecution.

He also promised to do more to stop rappers whose songs contain homophobic lyrics from performing in Britain, and said he would force faith schools to teach pupils there was nothing wrong with being gay.

However, he insisted there was no need for further legislation to protect homosexuals. It follows Harriet Harman’s attempts to push through her Equality Bill, which would put a duty on companies to promote the employment of gays.

Mr Cameron’s comments are the latest example of his conversion over gay rights.

Once a supporter of Margaret Thatcher’s Section 28 law, which banned the ‘promotion’ of homosexuality in schools, he changed his position after becoming Conservative leader in 2005.

Mr Cameron also called for an end to the ban on gays giving blood, saying: ‘Logic would dictate that it’s time to change.’

He promised to put in place ‘ground rules’ to make sure religious schools ‘teach equality’. But he came out against further equalities legislation, saying: ‘I think it’s much more about culture than about law now.’

THE REST IS HERE

Not that very many people ever read this far down, but this blog was the creation of Allan Kelly and his friend Vilmar. Vilmar moved on to his own blog some time ago, and Allan ran this place alone until his sudden and unexpected death partway through 2006. We all miss him. A lot. Even though he is gone this site will always still be more than a little bit his. We who are left to carry on the BMEWS tradition owe him a great debt of gratitude, and we hope to be able to pay that back by following his last advice to us all:
  1. Keep a firm grasp of Right and Wrong
  2. Stay involved with government on every level and don't let those bastards get away with a thing
  3. Use every legal means to defend yourself in the event of real internal trouble, and, most importantly:
  4. Keep talking to each other, whether here or elsewhere

Oh, and here's some kind of visitor flag counter thingy. Hey, all the cool blogs have one, so I should too. The Visitors Online thingy up at the top doesn't count anything, but it looks neat. It had better, since I paid actual money for it.
