    Interesting excuse. I must remember that if I ever commit a crime. “I had something on my mind, and didn’t mean to do it”.

    I’m sure the judge or magistrate will laugh heartily with me and let me off with a slap on the wrists.

    1. Quite bonkers. If homophobic behaviour is, as he himself admits, out of his character then perhaps he’s losing his mind and should undergo a psychiatric assessment?

      Won’t happen though.

    2. Perhaps it’s the first time he’s ever had anything on, or in, his mind…

  2. But surely, homophobia is in the character and capabilities of ANYONE who has concerns about their own same-sex attraction? “Show me a homophobe – I’ll show you a closet case”. Get this message out loud and clear. That should stop homophobia over night!

    1. why did he sign the messages with his nick name and cell phone number ? !

  3. Oh, what a life in the closet can do to people.

      The water closet perhaps?

  4. AT LAST! Such behaviour is treated seriously by ‘the Law’ and the perpetrator treated accordingly. Some good news here for a change on such matters!

  5. What an old git.

    Sounds like a right Alf Garnet!
