Bolesy Ties the Knot

Guido is very happy to be the first to publicly congratulate über-moderniser MP Nic Boles on tying the knot with his partner Shay Meshulam. They had a quiet civil partnership ceremony in Camberwell in March. They’ll be having a livelier wedding party in Ibiza this September. The relationship is due to politics, Nic first met Shay on a Conservative Friends of Israel junket.

Nic tells Guido “Miracles can happen even in middle age”.

          Agreed. According to a recent scientific survey, it established that 1.5% of people identified themselves as gay or lesbian, with a further 0.5% describing themselves as bi-sexual. From personal experience of my wide group of friends and colleagues, (approximately 150 people), I know 2 to be gay men, 1 to be a lesbian and one to be a bi-sexual woman.

          How come so many more gay people are attracted to politics?

          *Replying to Logan*

          I’m guessing it’s to do with wanting to bring about changes to the law to enable them to live lives they want without any legal restriction.

          Not saying that’s a positive, especially as it seems to affect the 98% (assuming your figures are correct) who are not in a negative way quite often, but I’m guessing that that is their objective and thus why they go into it.

          It happens that the class of people who are most active in politics are also the class who are most accepting of homosexuality. Hence these people can come out without fear of ostracism or harassment.

          By comparison, imagine being a shirt-lifter in, say, Tower Hamlets or some sink estate in Liverpool or Manchester. You’d keep it to yourself. It’s not that gays are over-represented in politics per se but that gays outside the Southern English upper middle-class are often a lot more circumspect about their sexuality than their more well-heeled fellow puffs.

        That said, IF Thatcher had tried out the Poll Tax on Englandshire rather than Scotchland first, it may have gone away more quickly than it did.
        It is playing with words to say it was fair. ‘Fair’ maybe, but ‘just’ is was not.

        That is one of the legacies of her government, and the reason the conservatives were wiped out in Scotchland – and remain so.

          Mrs T was the only political leader who was not put in place by the bankers to sell Britain down the swanny. She was felled by the banksters within her own party, not by the Community Charge.

          She wanted to resist the power of the EU, which meant the One World Government, New World Order, the UN and so on. All are linked. So did JFK. At least she still lives even though she suffers eternal character assassination ever since her fall at the hands of the OWG’s agents in the BBC.

          They nearly assassinated her of course at Brighton, using the Irish terrorism cover story as per usual. (Airey Neave, Mountbatten and so on). It was the CIA at work, as Enoch Powell knew.

      Now having realised that it really was not safe the fire engine retreated and radioed in for the leccy board to attend the scene and make it safe before they could put out the fires. Another hour later.
