No sound for Asian Britain? Save the BBC Asian Network and 6 Music! From a blog and a deejay with a text of some months or years ago:

Trust has received 1000 complaints to keep Asian Network open. This is ridiculous. The station is key to the Asian music scene.  Seems apathy has reared its ugly head in regards to Save BBC Asian Network. Come on everyone, we can do better than 1000 complaints. EMAIL srconsultation@bbc.co.uk NOW to Save BBC Asian Network. Just be honest. Keep it simple or state your reasons for not closing it down.

‘Curing’ British gay people, the general election and the UK

Dear British gays, would you like to pray with Tory MP Philippa Stroud to ‘cure’ gay people? And what do you think of Julian Lewis, the shadow defence minister, who “said he was against lowering the age of consent from 18 to 16 for homosexuals”? And have you read articles by Jamie Doward, Cal Flyn, Richard Rogers and Jonathan Isaby?

Edinburg, Cardiff, Belfast and East Ham. Here the candidates in Edinburg East, Cardiff Central, Belfast East and London East Ham.

Brighton, a gay village and… The candidates’name are here for Elmet and Rothwell and Brighton Kemptown, “a mixed constituency that stretches from the trendy heart of the city’s gay village”.
