I, too, sympathise with the purpose of the amendment of the noble Lord, Lord Thomas. However, is it not the case that as many boys as girls are victims of paedophiles, if not more so, and yet the overwhelming majority of those who perpetrate paedophile crimes are men? Does this not suggest that there is a tendency among paedophiles towards homosexuality, compared with the proportion in the population as a whole? Perhaps the noble Lord would like to comment on that.

Absolutely spot on Lord Monson, the reputable authorities that I quoted before,not the BNP, all say that at least 30% of paedophile crimes are committed by a percentage (not all) of homosexuals who make up less than 2%, or to put it another way, out of the entire population, the homosexual commits paedophilia at a rate at least thirty times more than the heterosexual. Benjamin Britten’s love of boys would be a classic profile of someone having paedophile tendencies. But of course one is not allowed to say anything against homosexual musicians because they are such marvellous and sensitive people.
