They used to say the sun never sets on the British Empire. There are British people of many different ethnic backgrounds. Idris Elba or Thandiwe Newton, both of whom are British and sound British, would make fantastic Bonds. I wonder if Henry Golding, who is British and Asian, could be tough enough? He can certainly handle the suave part. I personally am rooting for Elba. To me, he’s everything you would want in a Bond: the physicality and confidence, the menace, the charm.

I have no idea if this occurred but the American media reported that the alleged crime(s) occurred during April and May of 1965 and that seems unlikely. For the first half of April he was on a west coast tour and from April 30 he went on tour in the UK, which has been extensively documented — the documentary “Don’t Look Back” was made during that tour. We know pretty much where he was every day during that period. And he was getting ready to get married in the fall so he is believed to have spent his down time on the road with his fiancé (and a number of friends) who were traveling with him or dropped by (Donovan, a certain Fab Four…).

Many commenters here are overlooking the fact that everyone in the Ugandan team were fully vaccinated. Fully vaccinated people have only a 5% chance of being infected and only a much smaller, if any chance, of being infected enough to be contagious to others. If they were all wearing masks on the plane and there was social distancing as well, then there is a very good chance that no one else on the team got infected. We have not been told how many other people, if any, were flying on the plane with them or whether they were vaccinated.
BTW I read in another article that it was a coach and not an athlete who was infected.

New York state now requires a negative test within 72 hours of entry to avoid having to reduce self quarantine from 14 days to 3 days.

Yes there have always been people who choose to engage in homosexual activities. But it doesn’t comport very well with Darwinism. Therefore it will never likely constitute a majority of the people - at least not for long
Homo sapiens are both individualistic and highly social. We arguably owe are survival much more to the collective choices and outcomes of our societies. All of our lives are highly shaped by people outside our immediate family bloodlines, by people who don’t have children, by people we will never meet. As the saying goes, it takes a village to raise a child. One might also say it takes a village full of villagers to have a village. LGBT people contribute in countless ways, just as heterosexuals do. Many LGBT couples have children and/or adopt children where it is legally allowed. Homosexual behavior has also been exhibited in many other species.
