Coalition scraps Human Rights Report

Very disturbing news that the Government has scrapped or is in the process of scrapping the UK government's Human Rights Report.

This is a very worrying development and will impact on many groups, including LGBT people worldwide.

It's a clear indication the government gives good lip service on LGBT equality in the wider world but isn't prepared to do the work required or rather is quite happy to cut such work in favourn of making the FCO a permanent trade mission.

UPDATE: I gather the Govt's response is that they are only thinking about how to produce the report 'more cheaply' - well, time will tell what actually transpires - watch this space.
