LibDem ladies, what is wrong with you? Simon Hughes was asked directly by the Torygraph if he was gay, he replied “The answer is no”. The rumours have dogged him for years and were not helped by him often being seen in the Red Lion pub surrounded by admiring young male research assistants. He claims he has been turned down by all the women he has asked to marry him. All? Who? Guido has been told that he once dated Sarah Gurling (Mrs Charles Kennedy). Did she, like the party, choose Charlie over Simon? Who else turned Hughes down? Why?
