The Anonymous Widower

Goodbye Gambia

I enjoyed a good holiday with C in Gambia the year before she died and I’m sorry to see them leave the Commonwealth, as reported in various papers today.

I obviously don’t want to comment on the rights and wrongs of Gambia leaving, but I did once have a breakfast discussion with the Speaker of the Mozambiquan Parliament about the advantages of joining the Commonwealth, which his country had just done. It was very enlightening.

On the other hand the Times did print this paragraph.

President Jammeh of The Gambia told the United Nations’ General Assembly last month that homosexuals were one of the “biggest threats to human existence”.

So perhaps, the Commonwealth is better off without President  Jammeh.
