  1. What a silly old fool! He made terrible mistakes and has to suffer the consequences, but I do feel rather sorry for the poor man. It is a tragedy in the true sense of the word- the story has all the qualities of a classic tragedy as I was taught in A Level English- the conflict, the fatal flaw etc. TV drama, anyone?

  2. Lets face it its not really anything new is it. Remember all the scandal about the judges who visited Mrs Cynthia Payne for some fun and frolics (and a darn good spanking!)

    There is no fool like an old fool. Any inteligent person should know. Never to mix business with pleasure, now he’s paying the price poor sod.

    “He was at real risk of being blackmailed. Imagine the power a criminal could wield over a judge with info like this.”

    How very, very true Mister William. I can only imagine what they would do it the judge didn’t sucumb to their pressure.

    @Sister Mary Clarence

    probably run to the News of the World!

    Oh wait! That’s exactly what happened anyway. I wonder how much Williams was paid for spilling the dirt, ruining a (follish) man’s career and family. And I wonder why Williams did it: no-one will ever trust him again – especially in his “business” life.

  6. I hope the gay community will speak out against what this gay escort has done to another gay man. Some have called this judge an old fool – you know nothing about his personal life, his marriage, or his private gay world. Some younger people can’t appreciate why an older person might get married when they are gay, but many did, and this judge is no different. He found his outlets, and then he appeared to fall in love with a young man who eventually betrayed him. It’s a disgrace that Williams did this, he cannot hold his head up in gay company and pretend to be concerned about gay rights. He saw the money and went for it. What goes around comes around, Williams: that money will bring you no happiness in the end. You will have to live with what you did to this man. What was his crime? He opened his life to you, and your relationship could have been the nudge that pushed him out of the closet. Instead, you kicked him out of the closet with the help of homophobes in the tabloid press. I hope you feel proud of yourself, because I as a gay man feel ashamed to call you gay.

  7. I second Gillon’s comments. Williams should be ashamed of himself: I was especially disgusted that he would deliberately hurt Prince’s wife in the way that has been reported. I hope Williams’ gay friends (if has any left) come to realise what a malicious, money-grabbing loser they’re associating with.
