GUEST,Musket curious BS: Moscow Olympics. (90* d) RE: BS: Moscow Olympics. 10 Aug 13

I restrict your rights. You cannot peddle filthy disgusting views on your fellow citizens without me pointing it out.

Nobody restricts health rights. Decisions may be in light of financial restriction and priorities but it is not restriction of right. We have universal healthcare based on presentation and prognosis.

Being gay is the same as having ginger hair in today's Great Britain. For the vast majority of the population it always was. Now the bigots are at last outside of law as well as respectability.

Other matters. On balance and after my pros and cons thoughts above, I don't think a boycott is the way forward. Instead, as per Qatar World Cup when it comes, assurances that gay participants and spectators are welcomed. If not, then you don't need a boycott. The rules of IOC and FIFA suffice.

I agree that Olympics and politics shouldn't mix but such events are used by host nations to gain respectability so that should be borne in mind all the same. The issue of the American given asylum is irrelevant. The main push is from here in The UK.
