William Hague With A Gay Man

Well the truth had to get out in the end.  Britain’s foreign secretary, William Hague,  really does hang out with gay men. Just look at this photograph, he is not only shamelessly smiling but he is actually holding hands with this gay guy who is called, believe it or not,  Guido.

What is modern politics coming to, I ask, when senior figures in government can encourage this sort of thing by posing for gay-related photographs?

Oh, sorry about that folks, I didn’t realize that this Guido chap is, in fact, Guido Westerwelle, the German foreign secretary who was in London on official political business and was giving a joint press conference with Mr Hague on the day that our foreign secretary announced that he was not gay. Apparently Herr Westerwelle’s sexuality isn’t an issue in Germany. To prove that he is not gay, Mr Hague listed the sad and intensely personal details of all his wife’s miscarriages. He was denying rumours, spread oddly enough by another guy called Guido,  that he has had a gay affair with his handsome young political assistant Chris Myers, who has just resigned saying that he too is not gay.

No it seems that Mr Hague is straight and upset by the rumours that have been circulated, unsurprizingly, by a right wing political blogger who specialises in casting slurs at anyone to the political left of Genghis Khan.

Mr Hague does not want to be accused of adultery with Mr Myers because he is happily married to his wife Ffion but it would have done him no harm to make homosexuality sound like less of a sin.

No, William Hague is guilty of something much more heinous than homosexuality……

…..he allowed himself to be photographed wearing very silly clothes.  What was Chris Myers advising, I wonder: “William, are you sure about the cap? You might look cooler in something a bit more, er, conservative.”

My novel, Stephen Dearsley’s Summer Of Love, was published  on 31 October 2013. It is the story of a young fogey living in Brighton in 1967 who has a lot to learn when the flowering hippie counter culture changes him and the world around him.

It is now available as a paperback or on Kindle (go to your region’s Amazon site for Kindle orders)

You can order the book from the publishers, Ward Wood Publishing:

  1. The fact is, anyone who’s in the know is well aware that Hague’s a bum-bandit, but his chums in the mainstream media are playing it down. There’s also talk of trouble in the marriage due to his 'strange' ways and nghts when he never goes home. Any religious person might consider the possibility that Ffion’s two miscarriages were God’s punishment for little Willy’s bumlust. Either way, she is a victim of his deceit and has wasted the best part of her adult life with someone who has used her as a shield to hide his shirt-lifting ways.

    A real nasty piece of work.

  2. Now Anonymous, as much as I appreciate people commenting on here and I am not into censorship, I do have to say that I would have preferred your opinions not to have been coloured by such offensive, dare I say, homophobic words and phrases.

    Please don't take offence but I would much rather you avoiding using this sort of language.

  3. Some in the spiritual arena of thought accept as true that they "must stop" the "gay agenda, whatever that might be. Of course, there are folks who are very obstinate in the GLBT community about certain issues such as gay marriage and they demand to be heard and are vocal on the following stage over this debate. When I read the gentleman's essay arguing that no one is born gay, I certainly understood where he was coming from, as he felt as if the ""gay agenda" had come too far, and so, he is just as adamant about pushing back now.
