Godfrey Bloom, MEP for the United Kingdom Independence Party (Ukip), which threatens to scoop many Tory votes in the May elections, has told Ukip leaders: “We do not have the resources to write serious papers on major subjects, why reinvent the wheel? Why not buy policy ‘off the shelf’?”

Trafalgar Square, London
The French moralist group La Manif pour Tous are holding a demonstration against same-sex marriage on Palm Sunday to coincide with a similar demo in Paris. (see http://www.pinknews.co.uk/2013/03/11/london-anti-gay-marriage-protest-to-take-place-in-trafalgar-square-by-french-activists/ )
This rally against the right of same-sex couples to marry is an assault on equality. It is a demonstration of bigotry, cloaked in the language of 'family values'.
The best way to combat this is to show the widespread support for the bill at the same time as these bigots want to deny it.
Please join us on the 24th to show your support for same-sex marriage.

The Ugandan Anti-Homosexuality “Kill the Gays” Bill has been placed on the schedule of Parliament - meaning it will be on business of the day any time from now. In the next few hours or days, the situation for LGBT Ugandans may change markedly. Meantime, the Civil Society Coalition on Human Rights and Constitutional Law in Uganda has called for protest actions across the World. Global condemnation stopped this harsh law twice before. Please join RMT activists on 6th December.
