Mr Holes is obviously homophobic and should not be insulting people with his anti-gay tirades. He should be challenged and people should protest against his intolerance. However, in a democratic, free society it is wrong to prosecute him. Criminalisation is not appropriate.

Just as people should have the right to criticise religion, people of faith should have the right to criticise homosexuality. Only incitements to violence should be illegal.
Now of course everyone should hold such a view of the matter but Mr. Tatchell is one of the few in public life who have repeatedly expressed this clearly and obviously correct view of freedom and liberty.
Bugger standing for the Greens in Oxford, we want a peerage for this man!
