I’ve just heard a radio ad for the annual national Comic Relief campaign. (For one day every year Brits get themselves sponsored to do silly things for charity.) The radio spot featured thanks and testimony from a previous beneficiary of the fund: Yousef, a gay asylum seeker who sought refuge in Britain because homosexuality is illegal in his country of origin.

Right now a hack from the Daily Mail is in Yousef’s backyard wrestling with a local newspaper journo over the contents of Yousef’s wheelie bin.
