Gordon Wants Beckham

According to Pink News, David Beckham is happy with his status as a gay icon, insisting he’s proud to be a pin-up for gay men who desire him. The L.A. Galaxy hunk is so comfortable with his sexuality, “he never recoils when a lusty homosexual casts an amorous glance in his direction”. He says, “I’m very honored to have the tag of gay icon.”
Despite renouncing celebrity culture Gordon is trying to co-opt David Beckham into a photo-op. No doubt we will soon see Gordon pictured at Beckham’s Football Academy, surrounded by photogenic boys in tight shorts. Maybe not as tight as David’s choice here…

Oona on the Freedom to Party

Guido hears from his man at the Shepherd’s Bush Empire that Oona King is doing a documentary on “dance music and politics”, specifically the Criminal Justice and Public Order Act for Radio 4.

Guido is a fan of Oona and everything he has heard about her suggests she is great fun.

Presumably Oona will be putting the case for allowing us to get completely caned in Vauxhall after-hours clubs. After all, she has done the research…

Rob Colvile reviews Russell Brand’s new book:

“Oddly, the person I feel sorriest for isn’t Brand himself – although he certainly comes across as a rather pitiable figure, projecting his own brokenness on to the world around him – but Johann Hari. Drummed out of Fleet Street for plagiarism, the former Independent columnist has washed up as “my mate Johann, who’s been doing research for this book”. For a genuinely talented polemicist, it would have been a humbling experience to have to treat this sub-undergraduate dross as the scintillating wisdom of a philosopher-king.”



Mycroft says:

Have you read the last bit of Animal Farm?

You know where the animals are looking through the Farmhouse window?

My TV screen was that window at lunch-time today.

Be careful, the sudden self-congratulatory tone, the slightly pudgy outline of indulgence and you become exactly what you should despise.

The jolly face of the Quisling Cameron poses for your camera has mesmerised and deceived you, you who were once not so deceived.

You were no firebrand, you were a damp squib in my opinion, sorry.

You need a damned good kick up the ahse!
