But hiding back home is cheaper for European taxpayers, don’t you know?!
The Home Office has been accused of telling gay and lesbian asylum seekers to avoid persecution back home by keeping their sexuality secret.
“Would we have asked a Jew to hide in the attic to avoid being sent to the concentration camps?,” she told the BBC.
In one case, currently before the UK Supreme Court, a gay man from Cameroon was told he should relocate elsewhere in his country and be “more discreet” in future.
I hate to say & know this, but it seems to be a mostly European wide policy. Things are not much better here in The Netherlands.
For the past decade and a half I have been making all my content available for free (and never behind a paywall) as an ongoing practice of ephemeral publishing. This site is no exception. If you wish to help offset my labor costs, you can donate on Paypal or you can subscribe to Patreon where I will not be putting my posts behind a lock but you'd be helping me continue making this work available for everyone. Thank you. Follow me on Twitter for new post updates.
