The President of The Gambia's 24 hour ultimatum to his country's homosexual population to leave or be murdered has passed with little fanfare from the rest of the world.
It is amazing the things people can still get away with... a mad President (see his beliefs on AIDS) threatening to commit mass murder doesn't even warrant a major news story.
I wonder what would happen if Gordon Brown said he'd chop off the head of every Gambian in the country if they didn't leave within 24 hours? And then proceeded to proclaim a cure for cancer involving some Kentish apples and a special cream? Hmm... I wonder...
I will be thinking of those poor LGBT people in The Gambia tonight. Sadly there is no God to beseech nor any real hope of protection for them... let's hope they stay safe.
