Three quite possibly disconnected snippets from the news recently.

1 South African girls travelling abroad, working in London, are signing up as models/porno stars to help pay for their time away. Apparently, the pay is much better than working in a shop or restaurant. London agencies reported large numbers of South Africans on their books.

2 The Nigerian government has is introducing pre-emptive legislation to ban same-sex marriages, and also to ban anyone advocating gay rights or gay equality. The law was needed to stop the “gradual incursion of homosexualism and lesbianism and gay marriages into Nigerian society”

3 The Rotterdam city council has stated that only Dutch should be spoken on the streets of Rotterdam.
