Rest in Peace - David Morley

David Morley was murdered on Saturday night. He died in hospital after having been beaten in a savage attack in London in what it is suspected was a series of gay-hate crimes, where a gang of youths (male and female) seemed to be attacking people in an area where homosexuals were known to congregate.

It is especially poignant, and angering, that Mr Morley had survived the 1999 bombing of the Admiral Duncan Pub in Soho, in which a homophobic and racist terrorist carried out a series of attacks on the gay and the black communities.

Now he is dead.
