It’s not enough these people have never conserved anything in the present, they can’t even leave the past alone.
Any conviction that was imposed on someone purely due to consensual homosexual activity under now-abolished laws will be included in a scheme aimed at “righting the wrongs of the past”, the UK home secretary is set to announce.
Priti Patel said more people would have convictions for same-sex sexual activity wiped from their records, as she sought to expand the government’s disregards and pardons scheme from a narrow set of laws.
Currently, only nine former offences are included on a specified list that the Home Office said “largely focused on the repealed offences of buggery and gross indecency between men”.
If someone had been convicted of a crime under these now-scrapped laws, they can apply to have it disregarded – wiped from their criminal record and not be required to be disclosed.
But an amendment to the police, crime, sentencing and courts bill will broaden the criteria to include any repealed or abolished civilian or military offence that was imposed on someone purely for, or due to, consensual same-sex sexual activity.
All those whose cautions and convictions are disregarded under the scheme will also receive an automatic pardon, and anyone who has died before the changes came into place – or up to 12 months afterwards – will be posthumously pardoned.
Patel said: “It is only right that where offences have been abolished, convictions for consensual activity between same-sex partners should be disregarded too.
“I hope that expanding the pardons and disregards scheme will go some way to righting the wrongs of the past and to reassuring members of the LGBT community that Britain is one of the safest places in the world to call home.”
She thanked Lord Cashman and Lord Lexden for raising the issue.
Imagine my shock finding out that a guy named “Cashman” actually isn’t a Jew
Lord Lexden, a Conservative peer, said earlier this year it was “an affront to gay people” that the scheme had not been extended.
And non-affiliated peer Cashman said in November: “The disregard and pardon schemes in England and Wales are significantly flawed because they encompass only a small fraction of the laws that, over the decades and centuries, have immiserated the lives of gay and bisexual people”.
At the time, he highlighted how “the offence of solicitation by men, which was used to entrap gay and bisexual men, sometimes for doing nothing more than chatting up another adult man” would not have been included in the original scheme.
I think really they should dig up the corpses of the dead convicted homos and give them blowjobs.
I’m sure their dicks are rotted by now, but they could you know, simulate it. Make it a television program for children.
A few decades from now, all of these Pakis are gonna be pardoned for the by then abolished crime of gangbanging 11-year-old white girls and nailing their tongues to a table. And it’s gonna be done by a “conservative” government.
