  1. well he wouldn’t be the first tranvestite in the House nor the last I reckon (but the only honest out one!)

    Transvestite aside! Show-Biz people should stick to show-Biz and leave the cut and thrust of politics to the more wily. The same advice I would give to starry-eyed Journalists too. The Gay Times Journalist Matthew Paris was soon disillusioned after a season or two with the Tory-Boys. Funny how the name ‘Tory Boy’ sticks after Johnathan Aitken’s imprisonment for purjury. His fellow cons named him Tory Boy! Anyway, thats by the by, all I am saying is, above the portals of the Houses of Parliament should read: “DOOM Awaits All Who Enters Here.”

  3. I thought Eddie had put himself firmly back in the closet while he was in the US doing his television work. Now the work has dried up he wants to join the Westminster gravy train!

    Abi1975,
    Not to forget we in this country can still choose our careers or alternatives without your accusations of gravy trains. I have not heard anyone on these threads say anything positive about Abi1975 yet!

  5. erm.. What has Eddy Izzard got to do with LGBT issues? The man has stated on many occasions he is straight. Or are we going to get articles on every fetishist, sexual fantasist and paedophile we can find?

  6. Well, I’d vote for him if he prommised to tern up to parliment in a frock

    He should stick to sleezy comedy and leave sleezy politics to the political sleeze-bag, expence-hungrey degenerate crowd already there in the ‘House Of Sinners.’….”Fly me to the moon and let me play among the Stars. Let me know what Spring is like on Jupiter and Mars, in other words….” You know the rest, finnish it!
