An End For 'Gay' TV Characters?

The print edition of the Daily Telegraph (it would appear there is no on-line link) reports that if proposed laws by the present government are introduced it would make homophobia a crime.

So no more Mr. Humphries 'serving' us with his witticisms then.

Why the surprise and condemnation by Rowan Atkinson, cited in the article, as after all the Government are only adhering to Article 19 (ex Article 13 TEC) of the consolidated version of the Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union which states:

".......combat discrimination based on sex,............sexual orientation."

When considering the reasons for this proposed law, one may be forgiven for paraphrasing another well known adage - Theres nowt so queer as the present government!
