  • More good news!

    More good news today.

    A gay Iranian teenager who said he could be executed if he was sent home has been given asylum in Britain. Mehdi Kazemi, 19, came to London to study English in 2005, but later discovered his boyfriend had been charged with sodomy in Iran and hanged.

    A 38-year-old Iranian soldier who deserted rather than lay anti-personnel landmines also won the right to stay.

    The asylum policy does work sometimes eh? Hat-tip to Stroppybird. We’ve blogged about Mehdi Kazemi on here before.

    Plus, the government has also agreed to give temp workers equal rights (after employment of 12 weeks). While all the limelight was grabbed yesterday by the abortion bill, this was also passed through. Well done, Labour! You aren’t entirely bad.

      Another nail in the coffin of British business.
