Should being gay be legitimate grounds to claim asylum?

Post  El Guapo on Wed Jul 07, 2010 7:48 am

THE Supreme Court allowed appeals today by two gay asylum seekers who faced persecution if returned home.

Both men had been refused asylum in the UK on the grounds that they could avoid ill-treatment by keeping their sexuality secret or behaving discreetly.

Question is....should homosexuality be legitimate reasons for claiming political asylum?

My personal view is that it should not. How do you prove a persons sexuality and why should the UK concern itself with the homosexual rights of other nations?

No, In my opinion Homosexuality shouldn't be a reason for claiming political asylum, unless that sexuality would see you unfairly treated in your country. The UK's only concern is whether the person will be allowed to live in their own country. Unfortunately, in some countries, homesexuality can easily have you killed.

However, with this case, if they had already been refused asylum without indicating this reason then they should be sent home.

I'm still getting the full details tbh but it looks as though their original asylum application was refused and a deportation order was issued.

They then appealed that on the grounds of deporting them to a homophobic country would be a breach of the HR Act.

I agree that unless the issue of homosexuality was raised in the original asylum application how the hell can it now be taken into consideration upon appeal??

ffs..it's POLITICAL asylum not freakin HOMOSEXUAL asylum!

First application was denied. Second or appeal application should be filled in on their plane journey home & posted to the home office for consideration.

Man I need to be in government! Laughing Cool

This is going to mean that hundreds of thousands of 'Asylum Seekers' will now be claiming to be gay! Why is it the UK's problem anyway? If they live in some 3rd world shit house with a backward Government, they would be better staying in their own country and trying to make a difference.

Wait for it, coming soon to a port near you


I doubt they will look anywhere near as attractive as Ru Paul!!

This has now become the new word for the right to remain in BRITAIN, it used to be called ASYLUM but has now changed to GAY.

So basically the U.K. will have every AFRICAN, ASIAN and other 3rd world trash coming here, so the whole of these nations will become GAY to allow them into ENGLAND.

When the FUCK will these politicians wake up to this FRAUDULANT bullshit?

Actually, people have been using this method for some time to get what they want & it's not just foreigners who are guilty of this...... Many a British man has used this excuse to get housing as otherwise they would be living on the streets. When in Rome.........
