I don't know if he was assassinated or not, but it has been suggested and I wouldn't be surprised given the attitudes of those who ran (run) the security services. As for the attitudes to homosexuality, it's not that long since the Tories introduced Section 28, and I wouldn't be surprised if they get a working majority next time to see them try to reintroduce it.
