Cameron, Clegg and Miliband: Britain is ready for a gay Prime Minister

  • Cal

    Well, what are they going to say? No?

    • Sorry to change the subject but your cat is a spitting image of my Maisie who passed away. Lovely to see that face again.

      • Cal

        Sorry about your cat. Was she an Abyssinian?

        • She was part tabby and the rest Abyssinian. Your picture just reminded. What wonderful cats they are

          • Cal

            Absolutely. I hope you will get another when you feel ready. x

  • Tracy

    I am ready to lead, where do i sign ?

  • Wingby

    Well it wouldn’t be the first (allegedly).

  • qv

    good-o – step aside now, Cam-Cle-Mil, and we’ll see what we can do

  • qv

    step aside, then, and we’ll see what we can do!

  • When I read the headline, I couldn’t believe what I was reading. That is a ridiculous statement. Shouldn’t matter if you are gay or straight. All the country needs is an MP that tells the truth, sticks to its manifesto and has an equal believe in issues that concerns every type of person.

    • Horace Walpole

      At least four PM’s are thought to have been gay/bi : Pitt the Younger, Disraeli, Lord Rosebery and Ted Heath.

      Spot on Helen !.Fully agree. I read today that the Norwich City manager Chris Houghton is quoted as saying it is a shame that he is now the only “black” manager in the English 4 divisions. Why indicate discrimination?. It could simply be that the best people are being adjudged to be in the best positions.

      • Exactly and that is how discrimination begins and ends. The colour of someone’s skin, someone’s sexual preference or even if someone is married and having an affair (which I don’t agree with!) should not matter so long as they are doing what they are paid to do and do it well

    I thought we’d already had one…

  • Jones

    I’m sure a gay person would bring more compassion and understanding to the role of Prime Minister, for they have had an additional struggle in life compared to their straight counterparts. Bring on the first openly gay Prime Minister.

  • Patonback

    These clowns seem to have nothing else to offer us. I’m fed up with hearing about “gay” . We are talking about “people”. This sort of comment does the homosexual community a disservice. Just accept that most of us don’t bloody care. It doesn’t matter if a person is Gay, Black, Yellow or wears a turban. If they are able to do a good job, then that is all we need. Ed & Clegg seem to think they represent all our views. Well, they don’t and will find out soon enough at the Euro elections in May, then hopefully at our own General election. From being Labour through and through, I am now voting UKIP or even Tory, if it prevents a Lib Lab coalition.

    Although not a PM, Mandleson is gay. And look at the mess he left us in.

  • Brian_Barker

    We have already had one. Has nobody heard of Ted Heath!

  • Michael James Felse

    Rich coming from Labour. Their NEC added 2 extra years’ expulsion
    onto a Labour Party 5 year expulsion when this Officially voted Manchester Pride Parade Queen (2011) and gay ex-Doncaster Labour
    Constituency Secretary / Mayoral candidate tried to rejoin The Labour Party in 2012. Perhaps an apology or new leaf is needed by Labour. Simply take
    it from me, homophobia in England will not
    allow a gay PM.

  • Michael James Felse

    Did one mention Miliband MP has a Doncaster Constituency and sits on the NEC?

  • Couldn’t agree more.
