Scheme introduced in 2012 has wiped fewer than 200 historical offences from criminal records

A Home Office scheme designed to wipe historical convictions for consensual gay sex from people’s records is failing to right past wrongs, critics have said, as it was revealed that fewer than 200 crimes have been deleted since it was introduced seven years ago.

How is the Home Office 'failing to erase' if about two-thirds of the applications made are for: (1) non-sexual crimes (wrong form); (2) sexual activity in a public lavatory (specifically excluded by the act); …

663 applied: Approx 50% were rejected for non-sex related crimes, eg shoplifting or having sex in a public toilet Do they really think those should be expunged! No, IMO! Ridiculous to think they should be.

Soliciting for sex in public lavatories - unfair?

Margaret Thatcher biography: From the highest office in the land to no office or suitable home to call her ownToppled by the men in suits, an angry Margaret Thatcher struggles to adjust to the new realities of life as a civilian, adoping a position as the nation's 'back-street driver' - much to the fury of her successor. So did most civilians when she was in charge. She would've been rewarded with an extremely well paid post in the EU/UN/big corp/bank like Blair, Kinnock, Brown...if she had betrayed Britain & her people. But she didn't. She was a true patriot & a great believer in sovereignty & democracy. Her party betrayed her & Britain too I was bred to despise Maggie Thatcher, but learned to love her. An absolutely incredible woman.
