It seems a little unclear as to whether the announced review is a PR exercise or will result in real change.  Read the full story here.

it's more of a 'homosexual' panic defence isn't it? Unless the defence is people are provoked to violence by provocative acts of 'gayness' such as non-consensual interior decorating, playing Kylie records too loud or drinking vodka martinis without warning.
