Lib Dem Sim Hug Boll

I wanted the headline to have only three letters in each word.

Don't ask me why.

Ok then.

Because I am once again annoyed by the lack of reference (if indeed a person actually needs to be referenced) to Simon Hughes being bisexual.

Take this quote from Aol News :

Liberal Democrat leadership hopeful Simon Hughes considered dropping out of the race to succeed Charles Kennedy after being forced to "come out'' as homosexual, he has confirmed.

The party president - one of three leadership candidates - apologised for misleading voters by previously insisting he was not gay. He said he hoped his decision would make it easier for homosexuals to put themselves forward for election to public office.

and in particular the malarkey below:

Mr Hughes told The Sun that he had had sexual relations with both men and women, and had used a gay phone chat line.

Did everyone hear that?

Men and women?

How does this make one gay please?

AOl is American... They probably couldn't find their arse with both hands.

It's also quite likely that he admitted to 'gay relationships' early on which got in the press but then the bit about his boffing of both 'men and women' might have come out later.

Annoying though I grant. What is "Boll" by the way? And it has four letters not three...

The thing that concerns me in a leader isn't his sexuality, or even the fact he is unable to call it what it is. It's the fact that his first reaction when under pressure is to lie.

I suspect Boll is short for Bollocks.

I completely agree Gordy..and yes boll is bollocks and yes Stef, I can't count.

Lies do seem to be the currency of the party at the moment which isn't really doing them any favours.
