With his usual tact Ken has told the New Statesman that he believes the Tory party used to be “riddled with it like everywhere else is.” What was this “it”? Gay people.
There is never much doubt about how people feel when the use the expression “riddled”, but for the avoidance of doubt let’s see what the dictionary says:
“Riddled: Fill or permeate (someone or something), esp. with something unpleasant or undesirable.”
Guido has to wonder how this is going to play at the “LGBT London For Ken” fundraising dinner in March. It seems Ken has been hanging out with Al Qaradawi too much.
In the same interview Ken has made references to Boris’ alleged love child. Yesterday he emailed his supporters a clean campaign pledge:
“We are determined to win this election and unlike the Tories, who are resorting to dirty smear attacks, we are running a very positive campaign.”
That didn’t last long…
