Nelson's Column: In the name of JoIt’s been a truly ghastly week, beginning with the Orlando shootings and closing wi

th Jo Cox’ s murder. Jo was this column’s guest writer, and would have been again next month. She was an elfin bundle of fun and energy which made her company a delight. I saw her on Tuesday, and still cannot quite believe I will never see her again. Before the Orlando massacre I watched a DVD of Pride, a somewhat macabre coincidence. If you haven’t seen it, do. It’s funny, tragic, touching, inspirational, uplifting, heartwarming and heartbreaking.

It takes time for miners to accept openly gay people. But by the 1985 Pride march through London it’s miners and their own proud banners of working class struggle leading it in solidarity. This really

happened. It showed how little people fighting a mighty Establishment machine can make common cause no matter how diverse those causes seem. Jo made common cause with Syrian refugees. The LGBT community has come a long way since, winning the right for everyone to choose their sexual identity. Pride: solidarity Yet it still took political courage for David Cameron to champion same sex marriage. When it came to it, the British people shrugged their shoulders and said: “Yeah, ‘course. Why not?” Surely that’s how it should be. LGBT activists call the Orlando killings “homophobic terrorism”. It was certainly that. Just as an attack on a synagogue is “anti-semitic

terrorism”, or a mosque “Islamaphobic terrorism”, or Bataclan Paris “anti-French terrorism”. The common thread is hatred. And isn’t all hatred abhorrent no matter who it’s aimed at and for whatever reason? Political pundit Owen Jones, a gay man, misunderstoo

d this and stormed out of a Sky TV debate on this point. One objection was the people he argued with weren’t gay so couldn’t understand. Jones: walkout (Image: Sky News) I’m not gay or Jewish, Muslim, or French. And while Jo’s death is so acute for me because I knew and liked her I make common cause with every victim of hatred. As Jo’s husband Brendan said , only by uniting together will we defeat it. NELSON’S i The BBC quotes Tom Watson saying: “People throw britbats at Jeremy Corbyn.” Each to their own. I prefer throwing brickbats. Corbyn: bats (Image: Twitter/Channel4) CRACKING THE WHIP The Child Suppor

t Agency was created by the Tories in 1993 more to save money than help kids. The idea was for absent parents - mostly fathers - to pick up the tab for their children instead of the State. It didn’t work. So in 2012 the Tories introduced the Child Maintenance Service. The idea was for warring parents to make peace long enough to strike a maintenance deal. That can’t work for domestic abuse victims. Yet there is a four per cent collection fee for these recipients - mostly mothers. MPs call this “a tax on child support”. It is. It’s disgusting. And it should be abolished. 100 and out Public Health minister Jane Ellison says National Archive documents revealing personal medical details won’t be publicly available “until the individual has reached 100 years of age”. Isn’t this cut off point for privacy now out of date? Ellison: wrong century (Image: Alamy) Ten years ago there were 5,000 centenarians. Today there are 15,000. In 2026 there will be 40,000. And the reward for reaching this milestone shouldn’t be to have your most intimate secrets splattered everywhere. A peer whos off form I’d have thought my old pal Rob Hayward, ex-Tory MP and Parliament’s top number cruncher would have important things like EU referendum poll results to worry about. Not so, according to his question in the House of Lords. Now he is Baron Hayward of Cumnor OBE he’d like Whitehall to make more space on official forms for his titles.
