Budget airline EasyJet yesterday offered to fly Pope Benedict XVI to the UK following the recent controversy surrounding his viewpoints on British Equality laws and estimated cost of his visit.
The Sun has caused havoc after publishing a poll yesterday asking whether gay people should be allowed to be cabinet ministers.
The Government will not push through proposals that churches argue would restrict their ability to deny jobs to gay people and transsexuals, Equality Minister Harriet Harman has confirmed.
A rugby club has yesterday been slapped with a hefty £40,000 fine are their supporters chanted obscene homophobic chants to recently out rugby player Gareth Thomas.
Thomas, 35, was reportedly subject to offensive chants as the opposition crowd taunted him with songs about his sexuality, which the club failed to stop.
Following the incident, which to place during a match between the Castleford Tigers and Thomas’s team the Crusaders, the Rugby Football league held a tribunal and fined the Tigers £40,000 for failing to stop the abuse from their own supporters.
According to The Sun, the players agent Emanuele Palladino said about the outcom:"I am delighted.
Behaviour like this is not and should not be acceptable."
At the time of the incident, Thomas, who came out as gay in December, said he was hurt by the offensive gay jibes the crowd were chanting, saying: "It wasn't very nice and I was pretty hurt by what I could hear…I'm only human and I can't deny I was hurt."
The paper also reported that a spokesperson for the Castleford team in question were shocked by the outcome and plan to appeal the fine. Chief executive Richard Wright said: "The evidence does not support the scale of the penalty…We totally refute the outcome of the hearing."
