  1. I am more curious whyhe works for a homophobic paper then by nude pics

      Aside from the rather obvious reality that we all need to earn food and shelter, individuals within homophobic organisations achieve can a huge amount by acting as a moral conscience and ensuring our rights aren’t forgotten.

      Back in the says of Section 28 I made what I felt was a small contribution in the school I taught in which was to ensure that bullying based on sexual orientation was explicitly listed as unacceptable in the staff and student handbooks. Looking back its one of the things I’m most proud of, which would have surprised me at the time.

      By all means avoid giving such organisations your custom, but choosing where to work based on a political principle is not a luxury everyone has.

  2. It’s the idea of the Sunday Express being brought into disrepute that’s irresistibly funny to me.

  3. Sunday express obviously needs to grow-up. Who really cares these days

    This is a disgrace! Who cares that a couple of photos appeared, like most of us don’t have “compromising” photos out there. The point of the fact of the matter of the situation is that Mark is unquestionably one of the best critics and theatre columnists on either side of the pond and that’s all that should matter!!! Bottom line, he’ll still be around reviewing when the Express is a memory. We can only hope!
