A show of solidarity needed!

This is just a very quick post because the following written question caught my eye just now when I was cutting and pasting from the Order Paper for tomorrow’s PMQs. A good example of a backbench MP taking up a really important issue which might otherwise go unnoticed.

Chris McCafferty (Calder Valley): To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs, what representations the Government has made to the Ugandan government on its proposed legislation to (a) increase penalties for homosexuality and (b) introduce the death sentence for HIV positive homosexuals.

Disturbing news… I’ll be keeping an eye out for David Miliband’s response. I hope it’s robust.
