Cash for Lesbian Squash Players

Hi there,

I was surprised to read in yesterday's newspaper that a gay squash club has been given a grant of £6500 to encourage lesbians to take up the sport.

Don't get me wrong I have nothing against gays or lesbians (one of my family is gay) but I object to giving government (sorry MY money) to a particular group who should be capable of providing their own funds..

The money is being provided by the Department of Culture,Media and Sport. That sounds more like a department of a communist state rather than a democracy!

I wonder what the reaction would be if they provided money specifically for non gays.

It's great that lesbians should be encouraged to take up sport but should public money be used for this purpose?

Surely the money could be spent on more deserving cause such as for handicapped people?

Any rate let's have a joke. Two cowboys stagger out of the zoo with their clothes in shreds. One turns to the other. "That lion dancing is sure frightening"

On this day. 26th January
