I got it wrong in my previous post about the UN vote on an amendment to remove sexual orientation from the categories for which extra-judicial execution should be condemned.  I said Sweden had opposed the amendment, which it did, and abstained, which it did not, it voted against, as did the UK and most of Europe.  Record set straight here on Harry's Place, where the post is rightly called "Civilised v. savage".

Disappointing that places you have hope about in Africa like S Africa and Mozambique voted on the wrong side.

It really is about time that countries which won;t obey civilised standards of behaviour with regard to basic human rights stopped their expectation of constant, unceasing aid, from those of us who do.
