“It was only a few months ago that the government said quite plainly that it would, when looking at its aid budget, take cognisance of whether a country had a record of persecuting or of tolerating homosexuals.

“And when it gives aid it can say to countries, we will withdraw that aid or we will reduce that aid if you carry on persecuting Christians.”
