    A typical non story. When you go to another country you abide by their rules, wether you like it or not. Did this gay person think that it was alright to display affection to another man in Morocco. Medieval crimes they might seem to us but not to them. So if you going there abide by their rules and you will have a great time.

    "Foreign Office guidelines state that homosexuality is a criminal offence in Morocco and sexual relations outside marriage are also punishable by law."

    If thats the case why would they say Morocco is unsafe for British tourists. What they should have said was, Morocco is unsafe for British homosexuals.

    What a misleading title to a thread, every one travelling there will way up the pro's and cons but I am sure , this one will be low on the list, act in accordance with Moroccan laws and the threats will be little different than before.

    I found the Morrocan people friendly helpful, and never felt anything but safe while travelling through the country.

    But it's all a bit hypocritical, "women for breeding, boys for pleasure" is a phrase I heard in Kuwait. But the message is clear, obey local laws. A few have fallen foul of this Dubai.

    "Dover and Deal MP Charlie Elphicke warned travellers that Morocco was unsafe for British tourists."

    What a totally irresponsible comment,
    Shame on you Charlie Elphicke

    They really are desperate for votes aren't they, irresponsible is probably the right word but I have a few others I could put instead.

    Me thinks there might be an election coming and said MP is running scared of UKIP.

    A single MP wasn't it?
    Hardly Foreign Office guidelines.

    If you want to go there, thems the rules.
    We expect foreigners to abide by ours, why not the other way around?

    You are a master of British understatement DBk, as you say women for etc and boys etc. That was the case when I served in various parts of the Middle East over a number of years and it is certainly practised here in UK by oil-rich 'playboys'. The more I think about the contradictions in Islam the more I realise how steep is the uphill struggle the next few generations need to be prepared for. What we see is rarely what we get!

    Can the OP please amend the thread title to "Morocco Unsafe for GAY British Tourists"
    The current title is as bad as the The Daily Mails misleading headlines.

    I would think that a homosexual tourist from any country would be at risk if they practiced their sexual preferences not just British tourists

    to be honest you do see all sorts over there . every year you see the same campers turn up with local males visiting some vans or ladies visiting others . .you also see several ladies from europe getting male or female visitors .
    its not hidden .
    i can only imagine we havent heard the full story.
    mind you can see it just about anywhere .
    even spain has white boot girls and roundabout girls .
    bet there is roundabout guys as well but i havent noticed them .
