Hughes : Lies and Hypocrisy II

The Times destroys the latest excuses Hughes makes. Four hours before Trevor Kavanagh told him the game was up, he lied to them through his teeth:
Why did he think that people seemed to believe that he was gay? He frowned and his forehead furrowed. People added two and two and got gay, he explained. “I think the answer is I’m a single guy. I think that’s the explanation for that conclusion.”

He’s not gay, but he has had gay relationships. He wasn’t lying, but he wasn’t telling the truth… Over last weekend, Mr Hughes became aware that stories about his sex life were circulating on the internet.

So why did he lie? His latest line is that he comes from an older political generation in times when it was more repressed and he didn’t want to upset his mum. Purrrlease.

His mum? The eighties were repressed? With Boy George and George Michael at #1 in the charts. Even a young Guido was down at (handy for Westminster) Heaven, sweating on the dance-floor with poppers-sniffing YC’s.

It doesn’t wash. His party would not have rejected him if he was out. The real reason he could not admit to being bisexual/gay was because he got into parliament on the back of a hypocritical homophobic campaign in 1983. All his (too late) recent apologies can not hide that. He lied because he was ambitious and he still lies today because he is still ambitious. His come-uppance is well deserved.

Michael Crick on Safe Seats:

“In effect, new MPs are being elected day by day now, as, amid huge secrecy, small cabals of party bigwigs pick candidates for safe seats.”
