Former Australian prime minister Tony Abbott has been handed a top job advising the UK government on trade – despite a string of allegedly homophobic and sexist comments.

Senior LGBT supporters including Sir Ian McKellen and Stonewall, as well as the Labour Party’s equalities spokesperson, had urged Boris Johnson to block the appointment.

Campaigners say he described himself as being “threatened by homosexuality” and “vigorously” campaigned against legalising same-sex marriage in Australia.
