Prime Minister Gordon Brown speaks out against Prop 8

It's hard to believe that Prime Minister Gordon Brown, who was just here meeting with President Obama, is the first world leader to speak out against Prop 8. During a LGBT History Month reception across the pond after his White House visit Brown said this:
"This Proposition 8 in California, this attempt to undo good that has been done, this attempt to create divorces for 18,000 people who were perfectly legally brought together in partnerships.
"This is unacceptable and this shows why we have always got to be vigilant, always got to fight homophobic behaviour and any form of discrimination.

"I want to say to you all, you have broken new ground, you have shown what can be done, you have shown how you can change opinion in our country, you have shown how the legislative process, by your pressure, can respond."

...LGBT Labour praised Gordon Brown's comments about Prop 8.

"I am so proud that our Labour Prime Minister is the first world leader to come out passionately against Prop 8," said Richard Angell, the group's national secretary.

2. Yeah, what's up with the EU, the UK and the UN anti-hate ammendment?
I caught a whiff of something, they're (UK) not supporting it?
