    They need to merge with the daily Retarded Porn-Star and have done with it.

    This isn't even Sun standard "Journalism". They're either all: raging alkies; letting some kids on work experience (probably most of their staff these days) write the front page headlines; taking the piss in anticipation of the paper going down soon anyway; bored enough to experiment to find just what their remaining readers and excuse for an editor are prepared to tolerate; or, most likely, a mixture of these. :rolli:

    Hey guys

    this can be a serious issue. Just because we live in a relatively free western society, let's not forget that in some countries, people are imprisoned and/or put to death for engaging in homosexual activities. I think it is a reasonable grounds for seeking asylum - just not in Texas!!

    Yep, that's my point.

    Funny (well actually it's so pathetic as to be almost beyond funny) how they jump to apply all the campest stereotypes of our own society to those who are presumably fleeing persecution from somewhere where western culture has very little influence (almost by definition). Do (for example) Iranians who are in danger of being publically executed for their same-sex activities really need above all else to listen to Kylie and drink pink cocktails with little umbrellas, while limp-wristedly holding a cigarette between two fingers, will these things be uppermost in their minds, at the forefront of their reasons for wanting to leave their country and seek asylum? Do they even know these things exist? I doubt. :rolli:

    Bonus points to anyone who can identify the (informal) fallacy at work here, probably being deployed deliberately by the idiot journos. Not so much to sway their readers' opinions as to confirm their existing prejudices, but quite effective for all that. I don't think Express readers are prone to bouts of critical thinking.

    lol! Did the judge actually say, "They must be free to go to Kylie concerts and drink multi-coloured cocktails" or is that an embellishment on the part of the editor? If its the former, British gays must be in the awkward position of feeling gratitude towards someone who just insulted them...

    That is ridiculously funny, not least because it's so true

    If the judge actually said this I'll eat Morgan Le Fay's sporran, if she hasn't already.

    Besides this I don't quite see your reasoning. BRITISH gays don't need to seek asylum in the Uk, what with being there already and all that. Or was this some kind of point about international gay solidarity? I know identity politics is fashionable, but I really don't think is the issue here despite the paper's pathetic attempt at making it so, nor is it likely to be the primary basis of people's views on immigration regardless of their sexual preferences. At least I hope not...
