Oh Uganda, Land of Beauty?

Should we aid a country which executes those who persistently engage in homosexual acts?

Well, we send our boys to die for a regime which has legalised rape within marriage, illegal under those misogynistic Taliban, and which has restored the endemic pederasty to which the Taliban also took strong exception. If Afghanistan can have our blood, then Uganda may as well have our treasure. In what remaining position are we to make any sort of moral stand?

And how would we even go about doing so? The BBC World Service is about to stop short wave broadcasting in Swahili, an official language of three Commonwealth countries and spoken in at least four more, not all of which were ever in the British Empire, but all of which indicate, by their Commonwealth membership, that they desire ties to Britain.
