"LGBT+ rights" are the most important "values and hard won freedoms" distinguishing "us" from Russian President Vladimir Putin, Richard Moore, chief of MI6, the UK's Secret Intelligence Service, wrote on Friday.

Really?

Ah now I understand...
Moore highlighted an "LGBT+ support group" within MI6 to illustrate his emphasis of "LGBT+ rights" as the primary philosophy distinguishing "us from Putin."

Introducing P: "I had to move for the job when I joined #MI6, so I was relieved to find out there was an LGBT+ network group. Through the group I've made some great friends in the office, and it's reassuring to know it's there for support if I need it."

Plus..
Weeks ago, the Times reported that MI6 recently began hiring foreigners as part of its "diversity" agenda.

I wonder how many are Russians.

It's well past time this Woke nonsense was dropped. At one time such men were reckoned to be a security risk. Now it seems that they are in charge.

I don't agree with discrimination against these people but surely their sexual preferences shouldn't be broadcast to the world in association with their official positions?

Incredible - except that in this day and age, it sadly isn't

Can't help wondering how they would react if we suddenly found ourselves at war and they were being called up.  :rolleyes: :hmm:

Exactly the same as a heterosexual I'd image.

I'd agree with that. The number of soldiers (on both sides ) supposedly gay but still closeted during WWII, had no problem fighting/killing their enemy. Sexuality had nowt to do wi'it.

i doubt i would feel comfortable in a foxhole with a gay person, but on the other hand i suppose i might have other worries...

I have no problems with gays. I just don't see the need for bloating HR staff with extra outreach positions. Why should their "rights" be any different from anybody else's. Equal treatment for all not additional regulation for some.

crabbyob

it was like when the ladies were demanding equall rights, no-one suggested men retiring at sixty

As an ideal I agree 100% - we're still a long way off non-discrimination though.

I've met quite a lot of gay men in my life crabbyob and not one of 'em ever made a pass at me. They're just not interested in straight men.

It's not so much the gay part of that statement in the opening post, but the fact MI6 began hiring foreigners as part of its "diversity" agenda.   How does that work if your Dad was Russian  ?
