    When I was 18 and had done well in my A levels so my parents paid me to go on holiday to Spain with 3 mates as their parents had promised them the same Now I was the only gay one of the four and very out n proud since 13 .
    As we were sitting by the pool I noticed this lad clearing the garden …real tight shorts n no top. He looked over and I smiled..he smiled back and stroked his crotch…I was advertising my status…smile if you’re gay top and rainbow flag tattoo.

    I thought what the fuck so went over to him and got chatting and got real close and run my hand over the inside of his tight arse. Not hear he said. Meet me later in shed at back of garden at 10pm. The rest of the day I was sporting a hard on but managed…just..not to show it. The time came and I made my way to the shed in just a pair of shorts n flip flops…rubbers in the pocked and a cock ring on looking forward to sum action. I walked into the shed and saw his naked body on the floor. I got beside him and we explored each others bodies…sniffing..licking…kissing and fondling our innermost places.

    He flip onto his stomach n spread his legs for me to rim. He groaned in moans of pleasure. Ii slid out a johnny…no take me raw he begged
    So I slipped my cock up his love tunnel holding him to the flow. Then I pumped away sending my seed deep in side. We spent the night in each others arms and the next morning I awoke to find him sucking my cock…we got into a 69 and boy did he give a real good bj.

    It was the first time in many a night. On the last night of the holiday he confessed that he was only 15 the son of the manager… but that did not stop us from spending one more night lost in my holiday romance.

      So Bob of Pinner who posts as Elsie Beattie, Ewa and Nurse Botha; plus sockpuppeting all the regulars here; has made it his life’s mission to slip inside my character, much as his story here attempts to project his homosexual self into my life. In my day, the word gay had a nicer, friendlier and certainly more fragrant meaning. The annexation of the rainbow to emphasise homosexuality was perpetrated by San Francisco artist Gilbert Baker in 1978, another corruption of something beautiful into something bestial.

      …rubbers in my pocked, and other slipshod writing is also a Bob hallmark.

      Bob did have a girlfriend called Sue, whom he took on holiday to Italy. She left him and one may only wonder why.

      The man is a disgrace is an understatement. He purposely fucked the country as he left power and inflicted as much damage as he could. Evil does not sum it up and I want to know why he can run round at the UN and not be in a court of law.

To return to the UK was like some low budget Hollywood horror movie where all the people were possessed. Only after the first crisis did we believe there was any hope. But even now we can not see how any electorate can believe a single word of any of the main three parties. Yet they still do.

            This destructive style is simply not ‘English’.

            When reading through the McBride stuff + archives of what happened in the Brown administration, and knowing that this was building from the moment Blair got in (to be fair, it is possible to trace this approach back to the nobbling of the Hamiltons and some of what was going on in Major’s cabinet…) am reminded of this advert:

            The same corruption of values portrayed in that ad is what took hold in UK politics, and of course the f!nancial serv!ces industry.

            Why is was not recognized as being self-destructive and brought into check is a good question.

            McBride just took this hyperbolic.

            Ironically one should ignore his contrition as he is simply interested in $, and knows that he cannot change the frame of reference by which others rightly will judge him.

            Judging him by that frame of reference there is zero room for absolution – but it is nice of him to let us know. That is the Britain which Labour created, and that Britain will be permanently damned if Labour are brought back in to office any time soon.

            The beauty of the politically motivated police investigation which Labour has called for is that McBride is likely clean as a whistle.

            He will be smart enough to have something put to one side in the event of a frame up.

            Of more interest may be who leaked the emails which led to his downfall. That individual(s?) likely has broken many laws.

            McBride has been careful to point out that all documents he leaked / released were either not classified, re-written completely, and electronic material was sourced from public departmental mailboxes which were open: He would have selected communications which were marked non-confidential also (these common mailboxes are in part set up for controlling information flow to the media…)

            McBride is no fool and would assist with any police investigation fully, as he knows that once started, that investigation will likely finish off the people who toppled him.

            He will be fully aware of the public controversy detail you draw attention to.

        It is a responsibility of the people to force this status quo to change. The easiest way to do that is by engaging in debate. If the current politicians do not wish to engage, then perhaps time to find some new ones.

            I believe (apologies for the phrase…) that credibility was lost some time back.

            What the UK press dare not report on is that they no longer shape public opinion. The three main political parties are, one suspects, aware of that.

            The media and the parties only solution to date has been to attack and attempt to discredit competition. (Alternative media / net, and newcomer political parties). That strategy has failed.

            They are now moving to plan B which is to attempt to re-connect with the people. This is unlikely to be successful as most peoples perception is still poisoned.

            It would take a few years and a roll back to core traditional British cultural values to correct this. This is not possible whilst the UK is still part of the EU Federal Program, and whilst society is still being modified through mass immigration.

        Labour are simply not in a credible state to be entrusted with the responsibility of governance. Over the next 18 months this will be recognized by more of the electorate.

        They need a further term out in order to clear out the people who were involved with in the damage that was done to government under them.

        Top down, the road to recovery:

        i) Falkirk report : Needs to be published, and the issue of seat selection etc. needs to be resolved
        ii) Dealing with those in the Labour government who were involved in the L’IBOR scandal.
        iii) Dealing with those in the Labour government who were involved in the NHS killings.
        iv) Chilcot report and possible prosecution of Blair et al. for !raq.
        v) Define properly their relationship with the unions in the eye of the public.

        The problem we can see at present is that they have not moved on at all from the Blair / Brown days. This was demonstrated today by Campbell / Whelan coming out of the woodwork, and the recent attempts by Blair himself to get back into UK public life.

        Until they can deliver a coherent policy or statement directly and honestly without ‘spinning’ or doing some sort of covert briefing they are stuffed. It is evident at present that these habits are very much still alive, and Miliband has been lying through his teeth about the change.

        Methinks the general public are wise to this style of propaganda, broadly and rightly perceive it as essentially dishonest.

        What Labour need to realize is that they are done for 2015, irrespective of what the polls may suggest, and the sooner they redefine the way they project their image the sooner they will be able to start rebuilding public trust.

        When the penny drops among the broader populace that Miliband attempted to cover up some of what McBride is now revealing through the Leves0n inquiry, then I suspect the real break from Labour will be seen.

        It is only a matter of time before many start to make that connection.

        This of course is in parallel to what else is likely to emerge over the next few weeks. Ironically, McBride is likely to perform a coup de grace on Ba!!s and Miliband, and as seen tonight, will spin it to be an act of confession and one that he does in the best interests of the party itself.

    Still like to know why Whelan and the other piece of crap have popped up out of the sewer when the Liebour lies show is on, is this the start of a Bliar takeover by screwing red ED and vile Balls chance of 2015 or is it just a “coincidence”, HS2 is an EU dream so it will carry on so why has Balls pretended he will cut this, the conniving these politicians and media get up to is past the pail, I presume one day we will get some honest politicians or i that a dream.
