      America is full of these types. Virtually all the leaders of the anti gay movement have secret homophobes in their midst.

      Heres a link to eg the first guy – Rekers, who founded the hate group FRC and claimed to fix gays at Narth

  2. some of it seems silly at best like “twinks or bears” and the other bits disturbing at worst the whole “shower with the door open” – when the hell did this guy have a shower with the other guy around?

  3. Everybody knows that political people have gay sex and they need to come out of the closet so they can not be black mailed about it. If every gay person came out then there would be no gay people to black mail about being gay because then they would be out and everybody would know.

    1. The problem is that many may be bisexual and married with children?

        No kidding but Ive met about 22 of ex amrreid guys and gals who knew they were gay.

        Societal pressure to marry and fear of the family is what forced them into an unnatural for them relationship.

  4. Actually, a cab charge isn’t a parliamentary public fund. Cabcharges are accounts run for government and private companies for hiring taxis.

    All companies that keep a staff member (including public service) after a certain time (I think it’s 8pm) are obliged to proved a taxi home. They do so by giving the staff member a cabcharge slip.

  5. There are a lot of married men who prey on gays.

    He is a very slimy and sleazy person. There are a lot of them in society.

    Believe me, this is an orchestrated “scandal”. There may or may not be any truth to it but that does not matter: the story was intended to so damage Slipper that he resigned, forcing a by election. If that happened it would bring down the government. This is just the kind of dirty tricks by a Murdoch paper that Leveson is currently investigating in the uk. Newspapers should never ever have the powere to make or break democratically elected governments in such a crass and unpleasant way.

    1. And now he has resigned ….. I bet rupert is happy about that, god damn his wicked soul

        So you are saying that journalists should overlook this kind of behavior in politicians? Really?

        1. i think it would have been more appropriate to wait and report when the case has been heard rather then repeating allegations as if fact which is for the court to decide.
