|EU Managing Director for Africa, Nick Westcott|
Whilst the Commonwealth extols Rebecca Kadaga, the EU's Director for Africa tells Europe to stop condemning African politicians for trying to kill gay people.
The European Union’s most senior official in charge of relations with Africa has said the EU should stop lecturing the continent about gay rights.
Nick Westcott, the managing director for Africa in the EU’s diplomatic service said at a debate in Brussels on Wednesday that the EU needs a “strong message” when it comes to foreign policy and that the message should be “two-fold.” It should be “less apologetic about our financial clout and, secondly … more humble on the cultural issues.”
Yup, Nick Wescott reckons that bullying, abusing and humiliating gay people is a cultural right.
