  1. When we get true equality, we can no more be blackmailed for being gay than we can for being straight.

    He he – my Captcha words for this are Mr Tessa

    Incipid, poisonous little low-lifes – blackmail is a vile crime involving the ongoing calculated torture of another individual. I hope they get what’s coming to them when they’re in prison.

  3. Polly is right – the stigma and prejudice which still attaches to being gay is what made him cave in to this blackmail.

  4. In what century are we living in, when a man accepts the blackmailing of a couple of thugs, over him being gay? This is 2009, not 1958. I would have called the police, the minute these two tried something on me.

    Either there’s more to this story than meets the eye, or I’m caught in a time warp.

  6. Hello? We have gay civil servants and gay politicians as the norm these days. ( unfortunately not always our best representatives in some cases )This is 2009 not 1959. There shouldn’t be a motive for blackmail. In the Uk there is not a reason for anyone to be living in the closet anymore. If they are .. it’s their own feelings that’s keeping them there.
