Oh this is fantastic news. Just been informed that the Iranian lesbian Pegah Emambakhsh, after YEARS, detention and one heck of a fight, has finally won asylum status from the b+++++d UK Home Office.
This is fantastic news and very significant.
Her case has 'gone quiet' over the past year, after a lot of activism which extended to pleas from the Italian Prime Minister. Usually this means the worst - 'go 'home' and stay in the closet' is the message from the Home Office. Including to Iranians lesbians who don't exist according to the Iranian President but in reality face stoning and 'honour' killing.
But here, her lawyers must have out-maneuvered the lawyers in the 'chuck 'em out' section of the Home Office.
Bouncing around the room. This is one in the eye for Jacqui Smith.
